Brendan "Valdes" Valdes is currently casting the LCK for Riot Games.
He got his first opportunity to cast in 2012 by winning a raffle run by Azubu (the sponsor of seasons 1+2 of the Champions) to come to Korea for OGN the Champions season 1 finals, starting to work for Azubu, and then being asked by OGN to fill in as an analysis caster for season 2 of The Champions. He focused on learning Korean in 2013, and returned to full time casting Starcraft 2 Proleague in 2014. He began casting League of Legends once again in 2017 for SPOTV LCK. He is currently casting the LCK for Riot Games.
