Super heartbroken to hear this. Easily my favorite analyst on the desk.

Damn. He’s come a long way since his humble analyst beginnings. I imagine this is not the end for him and I wish him the best with whatever he chooses to pursue!

This is sad. If they replace him with Jake I'll be really upset, there's plenty of room for both of them if that's the direction they want to go

That's not likely to happen, not for this season at least, since Jake declared he was going back to play right at the end of his last brodcast in the WWC matches.

More likely someone like Seagull?

Whoever they are replacing him with is damn sad, the guy keeps getting the shrot stick. :(

That's fair, either way, my point stands that there's room for more than one ex-pro analyst to alternate on the desk. Unless they're scrapping that entirely, which would be a real shame

Agree with this all day, Jake was never used as an analyst as I saw, rather a colour commentator which gives so much more opportunities to opine on the play itself and thus be judged as more knowledgable. I'm not even close to saying Jake doesn't know what he's talking bout but outside of Beat, I'm not familiar with Reinforce colour commentating.

this is totally not good. now they will have only ppl on the desk that can entertain you but that lack alot of game knowledge compared to reinforced. i hope they will stack up the table big time.

Such is the fate of a western main tank player, always replaced, hopefully it's not with a booster this time.

FWIW, I find Bren exceptionally jarring (Sideshow is far better an analyst). Reinforce was a nice sanguine balance though.

Considering the fact Soe will likely be kept on, and Reinforce won't, let that tell you where Blizzard is going.

But Soe has nothing to share with Reinforce's role on the desk thou.

That's pretty much the point, he was the only one on the desk with professional expereince as a player, and I'm not one of the guys telling that you need to be GM to be allowed to cast or to analyze a match, but that doesn't remove the utility of someone who has actual experiences in a team environment and on being "behind a keyboard" when it actually matters.
