Duncan “Thorin” Shields from the United Kingdom is a called the “eSports Historian” because of his involvement with eSports since Quake, as well as his talent as an eSports analyst. He associates himself with many eSports, but he focuses the most on League of Legends and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. He is highly respected in both worlds, and he’s one of the most influential people in competitive gaming. He also known for his predictions about players and teams, as if the world does what he says. He works mostly as an analyst for multiple organizations like Dreamhack and Gfinity, along with a youtube channel where he talks about recent events and talks about his view on different eSport topics. He does this on his youtube show called “Thorin’s Thoughts”. Anyone that is a fan of eSports will know who Thorin is and what he does for the community.
I’ve met Thorin personally at Eleague and he really does have a passion for what he does and why her does it. Hopefully we will have Thorin around for years to come.
