The bald and beautiful Ted “Sloot” Bacinschi has been playing World of Warcraft since the early days. He’s been raiding just as long, if you count stepping foot in Zul’Gurub, getting to the first boss and wiping over and over again. Sloot isn’t just a tank on the desk, he’s also a tank extraordinaire in game as a master of many tank specializations. Sloot’s been involved in all of the Mythic Dungeon tournaments since the start of it all with the Tespa Collegiate Dungeon race. An iconic figure in the North American and European PvE scenes, you can often find him streaming.
Hailing from Italy, Caroline “Naguura” Forer has come a long way from waiting for her brothers to get off the computer so she could log in and play her Paladin back in Classic. “When I couldn't play, I would just sit for hours and watch my brothers play, then jump straight on as soon as they left the chair,” she said. From Paladin to Druid and from healing to damage, Caroline grew up with the game and went on to establish herself at the core of the EU PvE scene. Now with years of experience, a multitude of World Firsts under her belt and her own forays into WoW esports (both competing and casting), she returns to the MDI casting team.
Daniel "AutomaticJak" Anzenberger has been raiding in World of Warcraft for many years and is perhaps most well-known for his healing guides on YouTube and Wowhead, where he specializes in Holy/Discipline Priest and Mistweaver Monk play. He has been creating guides for over five years and enjoys sharing his knowledge and love of healing, so if you’re a healer looking to step up your game, or a tank/DPS looking to understand your healers more, AutomaticJak’s is the voice that will help you do that during MDI.
Former captain of the 4-man MDI team Sinking Ship, and self-proclaimed #2 Balance Druid, Peyton “Tettles” Tettleton’s appearance on the MDI desk will be one for the ages. Overall, his goal for the broadcast is to help viewers understand what makes the runs successful. “There is a lot of nuance in Mythic Plus and being able to teach the path to victory for each team is important,” he said. You can catch him on his stream or on YouTube where he primarily focuses on PVE content. He also authors the Wowhead Balance Druid Guide. He loves a good-natured meme and ridiculous photoshopped photos of himself.
Fresh off his performance in the World First race, Alex "Xyronic" Tatge is an Affliction Warlock extraordinaire. You can find his guides on Wowhead, where he breaks down everything a master of shadow magic would need to know, including talent builds, Azerite gear, spell rotations, macros and addons, Mythic+ guides, and more!
New to the desk this season is former MDI World Champion Rory “Cirra” Singer. Cirra made big waves in 2018 when his team Kjell’s Angels edged out a win over Method NA at the MDI Global Finals in a close Game 5. These days you can find Cirra raiding with Sloot and AutomaticJak in <Future> and running the KeystoneMasters community tournaments. We’re looking forward to him bringing his healing experience to the desk so Jak doesn’t feel quite so lonely.
