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.
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.
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.
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.
