Slingshot Readers,

We NEED your support. More specifically, the author of this article needs your support. If you've been enjoying our content, you know that a lot of work goes into our stories and although it may be a work of passion, writers gotta eat. If just half our readers gave 1 DOLLAR a month, one measly dollar, we could fund all the work from StuChiu, DeKay, Emily, Andrew (and even Vince). If you contribute 5 DOLLARS a month, we invite you to join our Discord and hang with the team. We wouldn't bother you like this if we didn't need your help and you can feel good knowing that 100% of your donation goes to the writers. We'd really appreciate your support. After all, you're what makes all this happen. Learn more

Who is Thorin?

Duncan “Thorin” Shields is an esports journalist and analyst, also known as the “esports historian” for his in-depth knowledge across many games and players in which he chooses to analyze. He has been a desk analyst for ELEAGUE, DreamHack, ESL and MLG, among others.

Thorin is most well known for his work in Counter Strike, as he is often on the analyst desk, but he discusses all esports through his YouTube channel, in which he has a wide range of shows and guests come through.

Thorin is also a polarizing individual who has a forward way of expressing his thoughts and opinions, a trait that has created a “love him or hate him” sort of phenomenon.
