Popular CS:GO commentator, HenryG, has returned to casting CS:GO after more than two years.
HenryG will be casting alongside SPUNJ at the ESL Pro League Season 16 in the absence of Machine.
HenryG had retired as a CS:GO talent in September 2020 and was pursuing a management role with Cloud9 for the following six months.

One of the most popular commentators in competitive CS:GO, Henry "HenryG" Greer, after an extended absence from the scene as a talent, will be returning to the microphone for the ESL Pro League Season 16 .

The 34-year-old was last heard casting a game at the Gamers Without Borders 2020, which was a charity CS:GO tournament. Later that year in September, he decided to retire from his role as a commentator to pursue a management role with Cloud9, taking charge of its roster rebuild at that point in time popularly nicknamed as 'Colossus'.

Now, more than two years later the British commentator has returned to casting and shall be pairing up with Chad "SPUNJ" Burchill. SPUNJ's usual duo Alex "Machine" Richardson is not part of the talent panel for this tournament.

After two years HenryG will be returning to cast CS:GO at the ESL Pro League Season 16

The man behind the popular catchprases "What. A. Blunder.", "I've never seen anything like it!", and "Why's he done that?", HenryG will be sharing the mic with SPUNJ through the ESL Pro League Season 16.

This marks his return to being the voice during the game that drives the action, amplifies the emotions, breaks down the plays, builds up the tension, and hypes every clutch.

After having announced his retirement from casting in September 2020, a decision which was hastened due to the verbal, emotional, and mental abuse allegations made against him by cosplayer Kelly Jean, HenryG had become the General Manager of Cloud9's CS:GO department.

While putting together a new roster which was nicknamed 'Colossus', HenryG made some peculiar choices which included announcing his decision of operating a six-man roster and also revealing player salaries along with other signing details - a practice that no other organization in the industry follows.

Unfortunately, the project failed to achieve any significant results and was discontinued after just six months, following which HenryG went away on a hiatus from competitive CS:GO.

He did appear as a guest commentator in January 2021 at the cs_summit 7 but that was his only showing up until now. But now he shall be returning as a replacement for Machine to entertain the audience with his voice once again.
