Mahone Zone host departs BLAST Studio

Danny "mahone" Hsieh announced via his Twitter account departure from BLAST. The Canadian decided to retire from his work as an analyst after a year and a half in the broadcasting studio.

mahone noted that he is going to do something new. He also thanked his former colleagues.

BLAST approached me about telestrator segments for BLAST Premier Spring Showdown 2022, which eventually grew into the mahone zone you all know today. 6 months after that I worked the IEM Rio Major 2022. Another 6 months later, the Paris Major 2023.

I'm happy with what I achieved in this short time. I can't thank enough those that saw the value in my work and took a chance to give me these opportunities. I’ve worked with many great people, on both sides of the camera, who deserve every bit of praise because they're so good at what they do.

Hsieh gained recognition for his time as an analyst at NIP, with which he spent one year. At the beginning of 2022, the Canadian became a full-time analyst at BLAST, hosting Mahone Zone segment with breakdowns of interesting rounds.

In addition, earlier one of BLAST’s top managers, Nicolas Estrup, decided to leave the tournament operator. At the same time, he moved to a position of Vice President of Product Development at ESL FACEIT Group.
