We’re joined by freelance caster Paulsible, a freelance caster with Elo Hell and Monkey Bubble and a fellow Fighting Mongoose! Paul has a great mind for the game and is excellent at breaking down and simplifying even the most complicated strategies and plays. We begin the episode by helping our listeners get to know Paul, covering his introduction to casting, his favorite moments he’s casted, and what he’s looking forward to for Overwatch in Season 3. We also discuss this week’s important news, including major changes to the Contenders format and broadcast schedule. We also discuss the League’s decision to cancel the Seoul homestands due to the increasing threat of the coronavirus in South Korea.
Next, we recap all of this week’s major events from what proved to be the most fun homestand yet! We review all 6 of this weekend’s games, including notable plays and strategies, standout players, and team-specific trends we’ve seen begin to develop. We have a great time recapping the awful epic that was “El Clasico” (Uprising vs Outlaws), the heartbreaking losses from the hosting Justice, and the sleeper status of the Toronto Defiant. We also give ace flex support Alarm (Philadelphia Fusion) our “Player of the Week” honors, and discuss our most anticipated matchups of Week 4.
