Episode 74 - The calm before the storm

Episode 74 - The calm before the storm


Recorded on: September 9th, 2020


The GCP welcomes on special guest Allen Heffelfinger (@LCSPicks) to recap the Summer playoffs in the LCK, LEC, and LCS, answer listener questions, and start looking ahead to the World Championships taking place in a couple of weeks.

This show was a lot less structured and more free-flowing than our normal shows since there weren't any matches this week but hopefully the looser feel works for people. If not let us know in a review!

It was great to finally get the chance to sit down and talk shop with Allen. Just like how I got started, Allen started a blog with his thoughts and picks that he still maintains here (LCSPicks.com). You can also find him at LineMovement.com
