This week we catch up with Jamie Skella, an Australian with a lot of angles covered on the esports scene, most prominently in the online tournament platform, Mogul.gg.
Seamus talks to Daniel about the first five years of Riot in Oceania, the evolution of the OPL, its partnerships with the AFL, schools and universities, and where the next five years takes us.
One of the smartest minds in all of esports sits down with The Esports Moment at Intel Extreme Masters Sydney.
Interview with Karrigan: on being benched at FaZe, leading a young Mousesports, and loving the big stage
Karrigan is one of my favourite players on the world circuit so it was fantastic to get time to sit down with him at IEM Sydney.
Recapping the key moments and crazy action from the Hearthstone World Championship in Taiwan. With special guest Stirling Coates, esports writer for The Roar who was there at the finals in Taipei.
At IEM Sydney 2019, I grabbed some time with Chad ‘SPUNJ’ Burchill, a former pro CS:GO player and now an analyst seen regularly on the global circuit. He’s an Australian and over the past few years has really helped build the identity of IEM Sydney, especially with the Caches show match that takes place before the grand final.
There’s a lot of Overwatch to catch up on. Contenders Season 1 finals at Intel Extreme Masters Sydney. The Pacific Showdown that follows later in May. And all the latest happenings at Overwatch League and the 2019 World Cup has been announced. And what’s the state of the meta anyway? Thankfully shoutcaster Genome stops by again to bring us up to speed.
This week Seamus sits down with Sam Mathews, co-founder and Chairman of FNATIC – one of the world’s biggest and longest running esports teams, with top-tier teams across CS:GO, League of Legends, Rainbow 6 Siege, and more.
There’s no other word for it. The P30’s camera tech is beyond clever or smart. It’s the work of wizardry. Here’s a collection of photos directly comparing the P30 with an iPhone XS. And sometimes… its actually so literally marvellous it’s capturing something you might not actually desire.
This week I’m sharing a really interesting, and hopefully useful, conversation with Morgan Romine that delves into some of the trickier areas of the state of online gaming, competitive gaming, esports, and the diversity problems that float around this industry like a really bad smell.
A fun chat with Zhiana, a great cosplayer and part of the Geek Bomb brigade, about all the latest developments in World of Warcraft. What have we been up to? What are we hoping for in 8.2 and where the story will go next? Why did Seamus make a Dark Iron Monk? All this and plenty more random Warcraftery so tune in and catch up.
This week on Jetpacks Are Overrated, a conversation about the state of passwords. From biometrics to two-factor authentication, there’s a lot of new tools in the mix that might lead some to feel like there will be a version of our future out there on the horizon where we can finally stop having to remember so many damn passwords!
