It's our Stage 2, Week 2 recap! In Episode 4, we go over Atlanta's ups and downs, the initial aftermath of the Note - rCk trade, and the "best of the rest" in teams 4-9. We also break down even more Team GM drama, whether or not more teams should continue to "Go Goats", and set up our current all-star rosters.
In Episode 4, Ramses and Lobosco recap Week 2 of Stage 2. They break down the current state of GOATS Meta, whether or not the switch to DPS comps is worth it, and if it’s actually possibly to beat the Vancouver Titans at their own game. They recap player and analyst statements on the issue, and put forth their own opinions on the matter.
Next, the hosts recap the major events of the last week’s games, including the
current state of the post-Dafran Atlanta Reign, what’s going on with Daco, and areas for improvement. They also cover notable performances from Krystal and Corey, as well as the initial outcome of the Note for rCk trade between Boston Uprising and Dallas Fuel. The boys also cover the “best of the rest”, teams 4 – 9; who looks good now, and who stands to improve as the stage and the season progress?
Later, the hosts discuss further GM drama involving the retirement of Washington Justice’s Kate Mitchell and recent statements from Houston Outlaws’ Flame. They break down the influence of Reddit and social media on league staff and players, and its role in defining public perception in OWL.
Finally, the boys announce their All Star team selections, and discuss current issues with the current voting system.
