Dreamhack recently announced that Bleh would be a part of the talent list at the Dreamhack Marseille LAN finals. However he will not be a part of the actual on site studio talent line up but rather casting on the secondary stream along with UK caster Vince Hill.

Despite being a popular talent in the Asian scene, Bleh’s international exposure has been limited for a variety of reasons. Not only is his expertise, which is Asian CS, not relevant in many LANs, the fact that he is based out of India makes going to events an expensive proposition for tournament organizers. Add to this there’s always a risk of not receiving a visa which is likely a cause for hesitation on the part of tournament organisers.

However even with these barriers, Bleh has managed to get himself out there with a couple of international events under his belt. IEM Taipei in early 2016 is one. He also casted the Dreamhack Masters Malmo EU Closed Qualifiers and the PGL Krakow Asia Minor in 2017. In India he is widely considered to be the best CS:GO shoutcaster and has casted multiple editions of the ESL India Premiership and other big LANs in the country. Speaking about the opportunity he said :

This is the biggest event I have ever casted. And it is very humbling.

It means everything to me. I've been watching Dreamhack events for years and to be a part of one of their biggest events is something I would have never even thought about.

I'm just going to give it my best and hope for the best. Also Co casting with such an amazing caster like Vince should make things fun.
