Yesterday we announced our latest pickup to the NiP family, a caster from Sweden who mainly casts in Swedish. His name is Kim ”Papadrayich” Larsson, in this article we ask him a few quick questions regarding his gaming career and life,
Tell us about yourself
I am PapaDrayich, also known as just Drayich. Kim Larsson, age 32 from Sweden. I’ve been a professional Dota2 player for teams like mousesports and sk-gaming back in the days.Now I’m focusing 100% on casting.
How did you get into gaming?
Gaming was a part of my life since i was 6 years old pretty much. It has helped me with rough times and it has been a great source of joy always.
How did you get into casting?
Casting kinda started randomly. Sure i did some english casts before, with people like Sheever and BreakyCPK in HoN but casting in Swedish came just from TV6 asking me to step up at TI3 and after that i got more jobs pretty much.
What’s your favorite moment in your casting career?
My favorite moment in my casting career is definitely when Alliance did win TI3 even if i didn’t cast that very game i still remember the joy of a Swedish team performing so well. Where do you see yourself in 5 years? I have no idea where i am in 5 years. Honestly, no freaking idea. ESPORTS is still up and coming for sure, but maybe i will be casting more variation of games. I really can’t answer it better then that.
