I think everyone is an nfl fan since we got two teams technocrats. Who seems sowed of out of the group stage and msi baby. Thank you so she to l. cs just regular players. That's how it works. And in fact which region has the most players in the rumble stage. That's right and a baby get fucked now. Is it only eight players.

S for any of our and this is a nother industry of lcs and really just league of legends writers who are leaving for other right problems. Valerie it's killing league. No no i. I came for league and i did not say anything because i wasn't a league player. Then they came for and didn't say anything. Because i was a league player. Wait hold on more riot. Riders jumping over. Which is probably great news for the valorous seen you cannot find a single better area to take people from to create a pro e sports environment than legal legends. It is by far the best. Single eastbourne zine you can make arguments about particulars in doda. You can make arguments particulars and see esco. But if you're trying to create a full functioning deep actual system. It's league right now. Baby i think at least as you've seen all the progression i think the one thing that valerien has going for him is they've taken enough of like a pool of talent from cs. Go that slake. Freelance contracts almost like and brought that talent over and had blake nursery. Gabor's who produced the anna side of the valerie. Masters has done a lot of stuff in the past. They used to actually hold their own counter. Strike tournaments in philadelphia called frank alpha and they had a lot of like high profile lecture to teams. Go there so they have like a have a knowledge of that mixed with like all the talent that's coming over from like league into it just like just the general broadcast knowledge and talent ones really good for our seemed to really good to see it explode in its first year and we may talk more about this. As it progresses we do have the first real major event for valor. Coming up right after masai. So you're going to be hearing more about it. You're gonna see more about it super fun.

I it's actually gained publisher. this is part of. I believe they're right forage initiative where they're really spreading their wings. And this is something that i think is really interesting in terms of the industry itself. I believe this is the first publisher that right is actually partnering with rather than a game dev group to actually create a riot specific game title instead the seems to be something not really specifically ruined tara or riot related its own entity and this might be the first step to riot spreading out from being just a game dev to something more which is really cool because as much as we love to me mariah it really does feel like they have the core concept of what makes games fun and interesting exciting for everyone as like an actual core concept for themselves which is really tough to find you know everyone wants to say e bad yeah ye as bad but the reason we get eighty percent of the games that are popular is because ea and other companies like it exist and are willing to publish stuff so of riots kind of deciding that that's a space that can make waves in.
