Push The Point #85: Grand Finals Recap + This Week’s News

October 13th, 2020

We start the episode off by covering this week’s free agency news, as the LA Gladiators liquidate a large portion of their roster ahead of the free agent signing period. We talk about the team’s struggles with meta and consistency this year, as well as the potential futures for these big names. We also look at the Boston Uprising, who recently parted ways with Halo and Mikeyy, while signing Lori from WGS Phoenix as their new Head Coach. We discuss Lori’s background in Contenders Korea and speculate whether his leadership will be enough to right the ship for the Boston squad in Season 4. We also give a brief mention the Guangzhou Charge, who recently parted ways with much of their coaching staff.

From here, we move on to our coverage of Grand Finals weekend. We thuroughly discuss each game from this weekend’s series, looking at what pushed some teams to victory and dragged other teams to defeat. In each matchup, we talk about our favorite moments and effective strategies, as well as our favorite player performances. We conclude with our coverage of the tense Grand Finals matchup, looking at moments of dominance from the San Francisco Shock, as well as some incredible performances from the Seoul Dynasty. We finish by talking about the Grand Finals MVP, and hypothesize about the future for our Grand Finals participants and overall winner.
