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.


  • Played all sorts of games avidly with 2 older brothers since he was 5 years old
  • Played high level youth ice hockey for 15 years
  • He was homeschooled up until high school
  • Played LoL since release
  • Hit diamond 1 (the highest rank at the time) during season 2 of LoL, played against Dyrus on the ladder once
  • Began watching esports by watching Tastosis on the GSL at 5am EST every day (Starcraft Esports)
  • Has been given multiple nicknames by his co-casters such as "Spicy Salmon", "Blendin' Velvet", "Brandon Vlades", "Bread-on Valdes," "Bronze Five (V)" but he just uses his last name Valdes
  • On the rare occasion that only two play by play casters are available, he becomes ValdAnalyst to compliment his fellow caster
  • Owns a British shorthair named Charlie
  • Gently mocked by his fellow casters for not knowing about many elements of "geek" culture.
