Rick Fox interview "The EVIL SIDE of the Business"
Following everything that's happened with Echo Fox's LCS spot, Rick Fox sits down for an interview with Optic Gaming CEO, H3CZ.
It's hard not to feel for Rick Fox, he really doesn't deserve to be in this situation. It's clear that his passion for esports and the game in general hasn't waned one bit. He's a legend in the industry and I can only hope that he finds another role in the LCS soon.
Clash is back!
Riot is testing out Clash again, its internal competitive game mode which is designed for competitive 5v5 play at all levels. Riot tried out Clash before, but it had a lot of issues. Hopefully those are all fixed now!
Clash will run from 8/19 to 8/25. You must be level 30 and have an honor level of 2 or greater. You can read all the details here:
League of Legends is an amazing game even though I haven’t played it in years. The one thing they get right is the multi player. Other games, when they do multi player either lag too much with the wrong machine or crash when unwanted. They don’t have to go make themselves be a realistic game, it wouldn’t fit the game’s personality. They just have to try and be great in their own way. They’re so underrepresented these days that it’s as if the whole of their community just disappeared off the face of the Earth from a Volcanic Earthquake.
