This week on The AFK Podcast we are joined by Simon (Wanster), Kevin (Kommie), Troy (Logun), our community member Greg (TheRealGrogster) and our very special guest Christopher Mykle AKA ggCMonteCristo.
Christopher is from the eSports site www.ggChronicle.com, and is joining us directly following his weekend of casting League of Legends at MLG Raleigh.
On this week’s show we dive right into the heart of the biggest news to come out of MLG Raleigh – the disqualification of both teams which made the finals – CURSE and Dignitas. We also discuss the health of eSports from LoL to SC2 and everything in between. With prize money increasing, and competitors sometimes not even old enough to (legally) drink in the US, Christopher gives us his opinion on how he sees Riot handling it’s increasingly larger stake in eSports.
League of Legends may not be your bag baby, but if you are an eSports fan you need to hear this episode. Equal shares of Riot dropping the ban-hammer* and raising the bar. (* ok not ban but DQ-hammer doesn’t have the same ring)
