Sadokist Returns to Casting for ECS Season 5 Finals in London

The talent for next month's Esports Championship Series Season 5 Finals was revealed Friday by developer FACEIT. Among the names is Matthew "sadokist" Trivett, who has been absent from the public sphere for more than a month.

The onstage talent for the event will be James Bardolph, Daniel "ddk" Kapadia, Henry "HenryG" Greer, Sadokist, Tomi Kovannen, Jason "Moses" O'Toole, Alex "Machine" Richardson and Pala "Mantrousse" Gilroy Sen.

ECS also held a Community Caster Challenge, for the chance of two winners to join the casting team. Alex "hawka_cs" Hawkins and Adam "dinkotv" Dinko will be joining the main talent at ECS. The ECS Season 5 Finals is set for June 8-10 at the SSE Arena, Wembly, in London.

This will be Sadokist's first event since he came under heavy scrutiny for using a racial slur during a late night stream March 30 celebrating his birthday, in which he was visibly drunk. Sadokist used the N-word, though the slur was not directed at a person of color. Still, he came under heavy criticism from the community and later issued an apology in which he said he would take some time off. This will be his first event since casting the V4 Future Sports Festival.
