TSM Can't Use FTX In Name

"This month. TSM team Solomid signed a naming-rights deal with cryptocurrency exchange ft x worth 210 million dollars over ten years to be known as TSM. Ft x. That branding however is under siege as Esports leagues around the industry are blocking or will be blocking the FTX portion of tsm's, new name siding that it breaks part of their sponsorship and partnership rules for their leagues. Riot games, notably page has blocked the FTX in League of Legends and Valor and titles but now Rainbow Six Siege mid broadcast after a pause there, player tags switched from TSM, FTX to Simply TSM Ubisoft home, the sole discretion for what sponsorships are allowed and currently it's not clear.

Call of Duty League and Overwatch League Loosen Sponsorship Restrictions

"Call of duty league and the overwatch league recently announced. They are loosening restrictions on the types of sponsorship deals. That franchises can make with outside companies. This means that both leagues will allow individual teams to obtain obtain sponsorship deals from previously excluded sectors such as gambling and liquor businesses. We continue to see signs of desperation from activision blizzard's franchised leagues. They had previously towed a very lofty family friendly line now that the leagues are struggling to generate revenue grow or attract an audience. It makes sense that previous ideals would be sacrificed for profit. It's unlikely that either league will lose much in the way of viewership as a consequence of this change and it should open up new revenue opportunities. But it's still stinks of

Where you gotta right? I appreciate it. I mean, I were to be able to give it. I work hard, man. I work hard to get get these last names, right? Lussier. I don't care who it is. You know, they tried like Raymond, who see a it's a nice little rhythm to it, but wage, you're a decorated X Call of Duty player. Now, you're the head coach and GM for the Dallas Empire. Again, the twenty-twenty CDL Champs. I mean, I know, that's kind of, that's kind of, like, in the past rabbit cage. Still feels good to have that label. What nine months later I want to say, oh yeah, I mean that's going to be for Whitney in for Empire and the players forever. It's obviously a cool seat that we got to accomplish off. Without really thinking about much nowadays. We're really trying to focus down and trying to find a way to repeat this year as much as we're now getting into a place where we can start progressing towards that goal. But yeah, I know it's exciting. And so, obviously you this past season hasn't gone off of the best of starts you guys, how how tough has this season been so far for your team and from your, from your end of things that if you like everyone was gunning? Yep. Guys, from the Star like you guys had a Target on your back. I mean, based on their success, early in the season, like we were, we were definitely a team to beat like a month before the season, actually started in probably the first two weeks of the season. So off, we were definitely kind of at a point where we were playing very well. Things started crumbling for us a little bit after that. Obviously, if we're comparing to season the last year this year, it's not too different. I think it's just the the difficulties and adversities, we're facing are coming in a different point of year. We faced adversity, very early last year and once it kind of got the ball rolling, after that event, win things were pretty pretty steady from that. Like, our progression was was incremental. We had a few kind of step back, but not very many obviously nothing like this here and that's kind of the biggest difference. I would, I would say for the season standpoint,

"cdl" Discussed on Esports Network Podcast

"Was because of clay, it's because of his craftiness, his ability to work, well, with players, his ability to teach players and I just put this team is in a good groove right now from every single players perspective. Everybody knows their role in with them looking as good as they are right now in the hardpoints and then kind of being fully aware of what their issues are. What their mistakes are. Is it also having a young Superstar who took a young star who very well could turn into a superstar in Hydra the French freedom. I think the sky's the limit for them, I really do. I think everybody's in a great role everybody knows what they need to do. And from a, from a working aspect, I believe that this is probably one of the hardest-working teams in the CDL and I said it would not Shock me. If we were to send New York come out and either make the grand finals, or who knows? Maybe defeat an old show, defeat a phase whatever you want to come down. Labeled the finalized. I expected to make it far and I would not be surprised if we if we leave the stage three major say in New York, they did it. They had a quick turnaround to bring in Hydra and stage 3 a.m. As well as they have in just a short period of time. I got New York winning this. All right, well, it's hard to vote against Clay and and hydro, but I, I gotta say, I think Minnesota rocker had a decent chance at this. I base that in no facts. I base a purely on the fact that Minnesota has been, you know, my my, my side picked this, all all the season always been Empire rocker. And then maybe I don't think New York sometimes, but for the most part, Rock has been my Dark Horse for for a while. I think they can, they can come out with it, so we'll see. We'll see I'm picking Minnesota. You're picking New York. I'll come back next week and I'll and I'll break your face. So you're probably bragging mine on Twitter, know, I mean man. It was if you get that prediction right, you deserve all the credit that you can get, not not administered is a a bad team but if they've come out and win the major, I think that would be without a doubt. One of the biggest wins of the entire CDL and in history. So I I give you a lot of props for that. I hope that they do play. Well, I like those guys over there. That's what I'm saying, man. Wage Gotta know. But anyways I'm running short on time here Orlando and I wish you good luck on the broadcast. Good luck on your pickems. Hopefully. Get those at the very least 90%, right, right?

It appears that the kid may or may not have hung himself. That's that's what it looks like tweet quickly taken down within five minutes but by then. The damage is already done on twitter. Newt care within seconds right. take seconds. it's it's you know. I think i think there are even websites out there now. That takes a screenshot of every tweet. So like no matter what it's out there at least if you're a popular person setup for this website to instantly stick scan all your tweets so the damage is done. Everyone's talking about like wall like did you just post a suicide me. That's kinda messed up and this was going to be like this is yikes because it is like damn yikes however very rarely does a. Yikes i think and with the okay. I get it because the social media guy came out on his personal twitter and explained himself new saying like look. I had no idea that the second part of that mean was hanging himself. I thought he kicked over the chair and it was him walking away. Which honestly like. I don't follow this social media manager but you kinda just go through their history and you see how long they've been doing what they're doing. He is also not like some sixteen to eighteen year. Old kid fresh out first gig. It seems like he's seems pretty mature and the way he responded inside generally do believe him because i also went back and looked at the picture after. He said that i was like. Oh okay like if you don't have a sense of like dark humor you might not. That might not be the first thing that you see right like it. Just it kinda does look like. He's walking away so i do believe him and it's stilling yikes because that's a tough ride. That captured everybody for those few hours on social media. Everyone inside any benefit of the doubt because like said after he says explains it. It's look it's a little stick figure drawing made in ms paint. It's not like it. Has the great perspective built in right. Doesn't give you like depth. So i'm a oh okay i like you said like if you're innocent minded and you don't consistently thinks something dark. He's walking away. I buy i buy it. You know it's good to see that something like this doesn't always end an instant firing or someone losing their job said. Hey we delete it. We talked about it.

Twitch's Recent Sports Properties Show Longterm Plan for the Platform

"On Sports properties and recently we've seen big moves towards that goal. I'm a dream since the Esports minute from E Sports Network, which is of course the home for Esports now will always be the platforms origination. But clearly the platform has been evolving firstly. There is a massive rise in just chatting as a category and in a lot more casual games and politicians using the platform. So there's that Evolution but there's also the evolution towards traditional Sports and we've seen this as well during the time when Twitches found Newfound competition, there are major leagues and major creators that are moving off platform over the last two years while the mixer experiment Network YouTube live has snatched up the CDL and o w l will also grabbing some big streamers in the process, but I honestly don't think twitch really cares that much they still are the dominant force in the mark. And command the largest audiences plus they have these grander plans. This isn't really a super controversial take twitch has been experimenting with more traditional sports events on the platform for the last few years. Most notably Thursday football games Coast trained with creators from the last few weeks two pieces of news have shown Twitches interest in traditional Sports and how it's continuing one was FIBA and the other was the kickoff of the fan control football game. Let's start with viva viva is the international basketball association the Federation dial international basketball amateur is where the FIBA acronym came from and now it's just the international basketball association today. They signed a multi-year deal with twitch people as far away from the NBA when it comes to viewership or relevance, but it does around the qualifying tournament for basketball at the Olympics as well as the bass World Cup and the World Cup and Hoops is definitely not the same as the World Cup in soccer, but it's still an important Sports property as part of the deal with twitch feeble broadcast 600 hours of basketball games on Twitch every year wage. Also be lighting up deals with Co streamers and creating more interactivity during broadcasts that interactivity is what twitch could offer and is also makes the fan control Football League pretty unique. The FCF is a new property that is not a few weeks on Twitch to pretty good viewership. It's cool because fans call the plays live during the game literally they vote on them and then the team runs them fans also have control over branding and player decision as well. The FCF utilizes Twitches ability for interactivity to basically play Madden in real life. Even Johnny Manziel is in the league for now. These are basically see tears Sports properties, but they show a month for twitch going forward the next time the meteorites come up for one of the major sports leagues Twitches definitely going to be having discussions. They've already cut in by having some of the NFL

Overwatch League Releases New Format, Schedule for 2021

"Quite a few changes for the league that likely at the toughest twenty-twenty seeing multiple players retire in entire roster is being dropped to cut costs and stagnant viewership while the o w l sister lead. The CDL has actually just kicked off the o w l won't start up until April 16th the goal I think was way out ahead of the covid-19 demek and what we won't be entirely Out of the Woods by April things are actually trending pretty quickly in the right direction. Thank God still the owner of the wall is putting forth a hybrid format that can be played online or in physical locations first off instead of a regular season format like traditional Sports b o w l will be following the CDL into a more tournament based regular-season structure. The structure will feature three weeks of qualifiers, then a mid-season tournament repeated 4 times. So to make that more clear the weekends of April 16th, April 23rd, and April 29th will be the first qualifiers then the first name Tournament will be the main melee on May 7th that schedule repeats through May June July and August. Each tournament has kind of a silly name may may lay is fine. Even if it's a little bit hard to say. Some people might assume to Smash Bros event. There's also the summer Showdown and the countdown cup which are both solid alliterations will give you that but they really Force the alliteration with the June just like white jesting. I don't think it makes sense names aside. This format will likely be easier to follow for fans on YouTube you sports events do well when they crowned some sort of champion at the end of it. Only League of Legends has really been successful creating a regular season format in Esports the c d l o w l and even our LCS have all abandoned their attempts to do so in the last one or two years this year will also see three Western o w l teams competed in Asia the Valiant fusion and New York Excelsior are all moving operations to Asia for this year that brings the divisions to 8 Eastern teams and 12 Western ones. Mid-season tournament will feature both East and West teams, they will start online but will actually compete in Hawaii once they're able to resume safely talk to UAB. I do renounce any critiques of the o w l if you invite me to a mid-season tournament in Hawaii, but I reserve the right to make fun of the name June just I'm just putting that out there right now. And the last thing to talk about with the new schedule is the price full up. Once again this year crossing the song million dollar Mark over all events Grand Champions will get a share of one point five million. But with the o w l the price still feels kind of weird, right like every team paid at least twenty million dollars in often month to even compete in this league at all. Sure splitting for a million is nice but teamed invested a whole lot more to even be in the league having a chance to win a mill back feels different from prizes and leagues that don't cost money millions of dollars to enter But ultimately the o w l can still be successful. Even if it's been pretty Doom and Gloom for a while now, they just have to keep growing in China last year a be reported in ama of birth. 1 million viewers for the playoffs the majority of which are in China. It's basically the Golden Goose for Esports if alley can remain popular in China, they could continue to exist on that alone and it'll be a crucial years so w l that's for

How Lessons From Esports Past Drives Esports Future with Repeat.gg CEO Aaron Fletcher

"This audience. So Eric go through the companies you found it quite a few there are plenty of starts across this industry. What advice can you give to some one of the first steps of fouling their own Esports or gaming company that you wish you do when you were starting out darn raised before you have Mom don't do anything until you have markets it it's it's that's it. That's purely it. I guess there's two things and don't be a dick but the the biggest one is definitely until you have some formal Market 5th and you can find out if you go to market fit pretty quickly just talk to people ask questions find the right people finding users find those things find out how much they willing to pay find out if they're willing to basically walk or use your product find out all these sort of things and grow that first before you start thinking. Oh, this is amazing. This is going to work cuz I think there's there's and and then I guess the other one actually is learned from birth. Past experiences and a lot of people don't do that, especially with a t Sports because the history have a have a chat to someone like either myself or have a chat like don't talk to someone who's a consultant that's been in the year in in the game two years talked to someone who's being in the industry for twenty years because they will tell you a lot more valuable information than someone who's been in there for two years and only knows about the currency because the current scene it's all about raising this big money about raising this big capital and you don't get the history of like the companies like tournament.com the raised a hundred million dollars and went broke over six months. You don't have seats need a CDL or CTS. I think it is that raised a hundred million dollars as well and we're broke after a year-and-a-half. You don't have all of these kind of things and we're play verse was as an example before they became what they raised what they are now off and that that you kind of could find on the internet even though I know the history there and there's a lot of other companies like that that you'll that you you only get from the perspective of people that have actually been in the industry because people have a game Get it either scrubbing the internet or it's just hard to find anything that isn't relevant now absolutely agree. It's the same advice. I give to student journalists. I talked to quite a few classes about hey, what could you do any sports journalist? What if we want to get involved in this space? And the first thing I tell them is get to know the history of the space get to know everything that happened with Major League Gaming from 2002 to 2010. That's where the start get to the creedy sports Association how this developed in Asia and that will guide your accurate reporting on this space if you understand what happened long before you probably got involved in it that was the case for me cuz we got a school, you know, I was in the 2015 2016 range was like, oh massive Madison Square Garden League of Legends. This is crazy thing off you go back in time and you're like, okay, let's look at the Madden tour bus as like an example of where it's these things that happen is sports over the time that I think are really crucial job. Like understand how we got to the place where at today and then helped give you those guiding lessons to make sure that the same mistakes aren't made. Well MLG an ESL at two really good examples of understanding their Acquisitions why they happened what happened with the issues they ran into especially MLG with God Frank cuz they had a whole pile of litigation issues with God frag when they did their acquisition why they got acquired by Activision and wage. It's it's an interesting story. That's probably better for another time. But in terms of those sort of things and that history that was kind of built there is actually really important because getting a quiet is a skilled gaming platform different platform broadcasting platform any of those by a publisher is a huge problem from both illegal Nightmare and a whole pile of other things because the skilled gamer is 18 plus as well as the tournament system requires 18 plus or Parental Guidance cetera, et cetera. So it becomes a Minefield on those sort of things and then you've got ESL same thing going through their acquisition and the different times they are now with mods. This group and and the difference in the kind of the company structure cuz everyone says he s l and they see these companies and they're like, they must be making it a billion dollars and I'm like, yeah doesn't look like that. It may seem like that from the outside cuz they're doing these large events and they're doing these things. But in terms of the revenue is not driven as much as you kind of think from that. It's really driven through the Publishers. Yeah, if you're done if you're not the publisher gave and you work a t sport chances are the money is not flowing your exactly there's only a few Outlets the kind of work and I've been in basically every single facet of that because I used to run events with the young. I used to run a lot of those sort of things with them for a long time. Actually u c l e s w c w c g a lot of the events around those and running those Live Events is is great. But it's like a break even marketing cost. It's not a it's it's what you'll use to fuel income elsewhere. Not what you're used to make money lost leader marketing basically at this point. Yeah, exactly. That's it's a funny industry to be it especially as we look at where these Sports organizations are going. This is totally off topic. By the way. Just the I had em for this wasn't for a podcast but I talked to Jason Lake in Andy Miller Jason Lake complexity CEO Andy Miller NRG CEO for audience. I do you do that. They were basically talking about hey, we're going to make Revenue eventually with our religious the Publishers of Olives. That's that's what we're counting on to make money in the mean time. We're going to keep building our brand up in whatever way we can we're to keep trying to capture feds. But really we just need to log get to a point where Publishers need us to enter the game because that will bring fans that will bring the marketing there looking for and then the Publishers have to reward us for doing so and that's kind of just walk the biggest eastwards organizations in the world see this space right now and that's it tells a lot. I think it will you actually have a look at most of these Sports organizations or actually converting from competitive Play De comme Recreation almost all right, converting over to that for Revenue basis cuz I've talked to a lot of these guys you have come like you've got Team Liquid as an example of trying to push in the text side of things cuz we've talked to him a few times about what they're doing for Thursday. We also consulted with the guild who raised with David Beckham, or they paid David Beckham to re it was it was a debacle. It was a drastic they they they are doing a good job. I think they really heavily like ninety percent of the money that they raised is purely attack. It's not to do to build out the team and build out anything on that account on the arm competitive site is secured purely build out both the content side as well as a Tech play on them because of the end of the day all this content and everything that they're creating in these fans and these users they need to figure out a way to monetize them and monetizing them generally comes through like merchandise. It comes through tourneys to come home a brand deals. And unfortunately, if you're the best game in the world, it doesn't mean you have a massive following you may not be entertaining to watch. So therefore content creation becomes king for this and which dog And fuels Brands which in turn fuels everything else and like I just talking to so as as Consulting with IDC, I think like probably a couple of weeks ago. I was I was talking to them cuz they're doing metro sports at the moment and it was a pretty interesting conversation cuz they're one of the first companies that isn't Yuzu that isn't that they're doing it. They're doing Esports Revenue a very different way. So Esports Revenue right now is off late. It is how much so it's like one point two billion or something. It's basically nothing compared to the publisher revenues like a hundred and sixty billion. So and that's where most of the revenue from E Sports is actually going. So what they're doing is they're doing a bottom-up kind of approach and looking at all of these other things that are kind of skewing it. So right now Esports revenue is calculated with just brands that are paying for events and advertising and all the way around that around which basically whereas they're looking at it from the other side of things and they're like, look, there's all this gambling Revenue that's also generated on top of Like betting on these matches and all this this looking that's that's showing any sports revenue and you've got companies like skills that their revenue alone for skills is bigger than the revenue of every single e sports team exists in the world in his voice. That's

"Apparently, it's Activision Blizzard week here on the Esports minute on Tuesday. We looked at a study they published on the value of Esports sponsorships on Wednesday. It was the increase in viewership for the Call of Duty league and why it might not have been enough. And today we're talking expansion for that very same league, but first i'm a dream since the Esports minute from Esports Network. So yesterday A lot of my argument for why the CDLs jump in viewers wasn't big enough was the massive by ends. It takes to get into the league and I stand by that argument but that doesn't mean that people aren't still willing to pay those boxes if given the chance in all likelihood.

That was the timeline the o w l hit twelve teams year one expansion 220 in Year to all week Adam started the sports Business Journal reported that there is mutual interest between the CDL and the owners of the Washington Justice in the o w l to place a team in DC of the 12 CDL teams.

It's all right. What's 2 take away here. Honestly in my opinion said investors are way too bullish on these leagues and I know it's not just my opinion the o w l has been on a downward trajectory for a while now and I don't think that's a controversial take investing another eight figure some into one of these franchise leagues without bringing in the established brand like optic face or thieves just feels like a really bold decision to be but on the flipside. I was super excited to see how these leagues played out when they could actually host events in the pandemic put a big chew on that after only a few weeks. Now, we are finally turning a covid-19 and there isn't really any reason I shouldn't have that same enthusiasm I had going into 2020. I really do hope these leagues succeed. It would be the single best thing that could happen for Esports. If events sold out wherever the League's win. I'm just not so confident. That's what's going to happen. I'm sure a b is focused on the year ahead. Clearly expansion is on the mind as well. We will almost certainly see a few new teams. Next year will be eight like the o w l i don't think so.

That means the CDL and o w l teams are now free to create and Market their own apparel as well as partner with other companies in this space m a r g San Francisco shock have already announced a new partnership with metal threads Fanatics gear was fairly standardized and never really became a huge hit with the Esports Community. That's generalizing. There was a bunch of cool stuff that came out but having it all run through Fanatics was a little bit constricting and really what highlighted some of the shortcomings of The Fanatic partnership is that merchandising is one of the areas where e Sports organizations are generally excelling multiple births who compete in the CDL, especially like 100 thieves and FaZe Clan have become popular choices for people industry where fashion already with thieves entering the CDL this year. It's important for them to be able to do their own merchandising as wage. It really feels like the partnership with Fanatics may have come out of the big influx of traditional Sports owners into the o w l specifically Fanatics is a ton of work with professional sports leagues and teams those owners may have gravitated toward dead. Partner that they recognize from their Days In traditional sports, but the CDL is a lot more longtime e sports brands many of which already have imperiled deals in place. You mentioned thieves and face, but plenty of the other teams also have or long histories of merchandise specifically with Call of Duty audiences allowing creativity and Merchandising is going to be helpful in submitting the new franchise Brands into their place in the East Sports Community.

The Most Important Esports Business Deals in 2020

"Look at the biggest Esports business deals from a tumultuous year. I'm a dreams and this is the Esports minute from E Sports Network. We're going to start with the business world today and move to the biggest stories over off tomorrow. Our top three biggest Esports business stories begin with BMW under the banner United and rivalry, which is transcended ties to the BMW brand the luxury carmaker partnered with five major Choice dogs all with top-tier League of Legends teams fun Plus Phoenix, then the defending world champions represented China Faker and T1 represented Korea Cloud, 9 wrapped n a and both G2 and thought it represented EU across-the-board top-tier teams with huge fan bases at the time Christopher Koenig a spokesperson for BMW said to me for an adweek article quote. We are professionals when it comes to marketing to our sales funnel and our traditional marketing group, but when it comes to younger Target group Generation Y Millennials, we only have partial answers on how to reach them. Then there's the even more important the future table. Group of Generation Z we have almost no answers on how to reach them. He sports for us is a channel to reach this group and quote and I think that really sums up the value of Esports four Brands thought you switch will continue to become a central part of smart Brands marketing strategies going forward. Number two in our list YouTube gaming acquires the broadcast rights for the OverWatch and Call of Duty leagues in a year that was marked by competition between streaming Giants and we'll talk about mixer tomorrow. Trust me YouTube's acquisition of two major Esports properties was a key moment in the sights growth into live viewing now thanks to the pandemic neither pows or CDL were able to Showcase their true potential but YouTube's investment in coming for Twitches Esports market share was a huge moment and finally the most controversial brand deal of the year the LEC and blasphemy are partnering with a futuristic city planned by Saudi Arabia. Saudi Arabia has a poor record on human rights issues, especially for any member of the lgbtq family considering the LEC is closely tied to that Community Thursday. Casting Squad and audience the resulting controversy for strike games to pull out of the deal while it was happening blastomere avoid a lot of the public-facing controversy despite also partner with me on at the same time still page pulled out of the deal a few weeks after right games pulled out in all it was a crucial moment when moral choices of the audience and cast members came in direct conflict with what had to be an absolute boatload of

ASH 2020 Update

"So. I'm excited we back and we have a lot to get into and the reason for this is that we heard a number of from the american society for hematology conference. That just took place a couple of weeks ago. So we're going to talk about updates from trillium therapeutics tgi therapeutics actinium. Pharma and i wanna do a little bit of a follow on to my video about anna back with regards to their parkinson's disease data so we're going to touch on all of this stuff and Overall is a pretty interesting conference from some of the data. Updates that i saw of course i'm just going to focus on the companies that i'm interested in but then i'm gonna follow it up with a few other updates that we saw that led to huge increases in in their stock price. So have a lot to get into. So i'm just going to get right into it. And i think before we talk about the company's specifically i did just wanna talk a little bit about non-hodgkin's lymphoma and the reason for this is that to companies trillium in focus a lot on this disease and i just want everybody to be up to speed. So i've talked about non-hodgkin's lymphoma in the past. And i showed like a version of this slide. But i've included a few like prices of previously approved drugs for these diseases just so that we all have a bit more context on what we can expect in terms of a proper valuation for the companies. So just we all understand. Non-hodgkin's lymphoma characterizes a group of malignant lymphocytes cancers. These are known as he malignancies and lymphocytes as we know at their b or t cells and these are part of the adaptive immune system. They collect mutations such that they can grow and then deposit in different areas of your body leading to non lymphoma so they're characterized based on where the lymphocytes and of depositing also whether or not they're indolent or aggressive so the inland version are very slow growing. And they're not always emergency such that they don't need to be treated necessarily immediately but they need to be monitored so the decision to treat with any of the different treatments that event lined here is really up to the doctor themself. Now when it comes to aggressive versions of non hodgkin's lymphoma there's obviously more of a drive to treat and to get rid of this cancer because it's leading to significant side effects on the patient so just to give a little bit more context here the prevalence of non hodgkin's lymphoma and this is the all of them. So i'm just including all of them in this calculation it's around twenty cases per one hundred thousand adults and this is around seventy seven thousand patients in the usa per year so it's a significant patient population treatments out there. That exist are pretty numerous. Though so there's chemotherapies immune therapies targeted therapies. And then i also put radiation stem cell transplants. And then just to give a little bit of a description on the different one. So for indolent non hodgkin's lymphoma. Cdl small lymphocytic leukemia lymphoma marginal zone. Lymphoma cutaneous t. cell lymphoma so that would be on the skin now. All of these cancers have been aggressive version. So if the indolent version gets more aggressive it would turn into these types of cancers that include p tcl deal mantle cell lymphoma or burkitt lymphoma. So keep all that in mind. And i did just wanna put here. So i'm showing a chart from various corporate presentation on Talk about them but just to sort of frame What we can expect in terms of objective response rate of what we want some of the approved drugs already. They hit ours in the range of twenty to thirty percent and then the drugs that verizon was looking at they did a little bit better. But when we're looking at whether or not therapy is is good or bad. You need a reference to compare it to so depending on where they are in terms of the line of treatment. They're looking at and the mechanism of action in the side effects. If they can garner in objective response rate of twenty thirty percent in general that is seen as decent or approvable at least for the fda now it comes to price this is also pretty critical because when we're looking at understanding the total value or potential value of a company. We really have to look at the potential addressable market so drugs that have originally like longtime ago been approved for different types of non hodgkin's lymphoma reduction was one of the original ones and right now it's approved for first line non-hodgkin's lymphoma and i didn't get into the details because they do specific indications but generally a course of this treatment for four months costs around thirty nine thousand dollars so that's kind of the the floor and then there's another one here that's approved for second line or greater see. Tcl cost around twenty nine thousand per month in this zelina but then this can go all the way up to. Yes carta which is approved for third-liner deal as a gilead drug and the cost for that is three hundred seventy three thousand dollars per treatment course so there's a big range and the total addressable market for the entirety of non hodgkin's lymphoma is around three point two billion dollars. So you have to think of all of the approved therapies that are out there and if companies are going to try and get drugs on the market you know how much of that three point two billion are. They going to be able to get for their specific drug.

On Forbes Esports Orgs Valuations and Reactions from Around the Industry

"Year for Julissa list of the 10 most valuable e Sports organizations, they attach a massive nine-figure some to 10 works as well as some added information and every year, it causes controversy home. Mostly because of how the numbers are sourced basically Christina submitted the author of the article talks to a bunch of investors and team owners and they provide numbers while there is some viewing of these numbers with a critical lens not nearly took his done to outright trust the numbers as a true valuation first. Let's look at what the list said then some of the issues that came with it TSM is on top of the list with the valuation of 410 million dollars wage. Then follows T9 previously on top now in second with a valuation of 350 Mill third is liquid with 310 Mill 4th is FaZe Clan with 305 V is 100 thieves with a hundred ninety-six Genji. 185 7th Enthusiast gaming or Luminosity 188 G to 165 9th and RG 155,000 10th T1 at 150 million. So there's the list here's what people had to say Jacob Wolfe the former ESPN reporter who got in a public spat on Twitter with the author a few months ago said quote unrelated to pass beef with Christina. We've talked civilly sense, but guess the Forbes published valuations are insanely inflated, but it's not her or Forbes fault frankly am a sharing valuations similar to her estimates to investors. She's not shooting in the dark and quote often. The critiques of this article are leveled at Forbes and they do share some of the brunt the wolf, Mexico. It is not Christine as fault, but the orgs themselves for these valuations in addition Esports orgs valuations are inflated as wolf says these orders are being valued at ten to twelve times revenue for every month besides Enthusiast gaming on this list. That's much higher than a normal valuation. Here's what Adam Fitch now business content lead for dexterity do had to say quote. It's only LinkedIn grifters and phony Executives. You share Forbes Esports pieces until the valuations come around each year. So why are people putting stock in this list now as it forms as credible and respected in our industry any other time it's harsh but he's not wrong. You don't see a ton of forums articles shared around the year. It's mostly this one that people turn to and it's not just journalists critiquing this list either because the data comes from investor conversations and team owners the people in charge of teams who don't inflate their valuations get left off the list one extremely notable Omission. This year was Envy gaming Adam Rimer the new CEO of Envy gaming as of last summer. This on his LinkedIn quote. This Forbes analysis is utter garbage to be clear. This is not a criticism of the organizations mentioned all of whom deserve to be there. I have friends at all of them and have a great respect for what they're doing across the board, but in full transparency, this is a complete drive by cursory analysis, which is led me to question the entire valuation slash editorial capability of four years as a former valuation consultant determining Equity value for private companies is by definition a huge challenge one, which is made even more difficult without considering all facets of the company estimated revenues. No accounting for burn rates. No interest in new initiatives since the last edition of this article where we place number eight. We have increased revenues added post Malone to the ownership group added our Call of Duty team which one the first CDL championship and expanded our audience base considerably. None of this was apparently relevant to this study to even be mentioned based on the companies mentioned one would think it was purely birth. So which organizations would give them the biggest article reach which to be fair is certainly a contributor to value in. My honest opinion. This list has become a disservice to the entire industry. He add additional comment for more context which said quote we did provide Forbes with requested information and stats as we have in each of the last three years when we learned of their changed methodology for this year's list, which would strongly disagree with we opted to stop sharing additional context. He doesn't say this explicitly but it seems to be that he thinks that's the reason why they were left off this list. It's really the only thing that makes sense because there's no reason and we should have dropped value from last year after what was by all accounts. One of the most successful years in the Brand's history unless of course, the numbers aren't rooted in actual analysis, but an unsubstantiated responses from various sources, if we disagree with their methodology, they might have chosen not to put them on the list which again calls into question the entire validity of the list in many ways the forms value age. Should list is much like news numbers. It is the best accumulation of data for a given sub segments of the E Sports industry that we have but people in the industry know to take the numbers with another soul to put the Red Sea to shame

One of the most successful years in the Brand's history unless of course, the numbers aren't rooted in actual analysis, but an unsubstantiated responses from various sources, if we disagree with their methodology, they might have chosen not to put them on the list which again calls into question the entire validity of the list in many ways the forms value age. Should list is much like news numbers. It is the best accumulation of data for a given sub segments of the E Sports industry that we have but people in the industry know to take the numbers with another soul to put the Red Sea to

"Shit move on. Cdl's part that is his channel. It's in the off season. I get it if you tell them during the season like we don't want you doing page streams for for other games. Okay that's maybe that's somewhat acceptable during the season but off season on his own channel like that. That is a shitty lisi. Move a footnote on this too. Is that skunk also tweeted out That they approached the players before minnesota of last season and made them sign this agreement before they could really get any lawyers to look at it and it stated like you. You can't do. You have the details. There does next week. Okay to the cd. Also this again tweet from skunk right. After all this other stuff the cdl also made sign a player contract in front of them without allowing us to run it by our lawyers at the player summit it was a sign it now or you can't play minnesota type exchange. I'm probably gonna get fined for this too. But just letting you know and siegel former overwatch league player said yeah. Overwatch tried doing the same with us. I sign it. We walked Which might actually explained seagulls quick. And what i thought. Random leaving of the overwatch league That could explain that now if they were trying to get him to sign and he's like i'm not i'm not doing that Also not that. I where they can't talk bad about the game like cannot talk shit about call of duty which listen. I'm gonna say this right now to any call of duty developers out there. Your game is shit by definition. If i had to check off boxes one on one side saying sucked and not sucked about your games. Sucked would be more checked okay. It's just there's enough not sucked boxes. Check to have the game fun. People keep playing it because it's called duty right but for really a game that comes out every single year. Like people play at this point because it's just ingrained in their dna but you're not reinventing the wheel. You're not creating some new mechanic for the most part. It's the same thing every year. But you you repaint it. You're you give it a new facelift and move on so don't act like you just built the mona lisa. And it's just so perfect. How could anyone talk bad about it. Even if no one's talking bad about it we all know it right like we all know the issues with college duty. No game is perfect. That being too many diehard fans for people to come straight up admit that the video. It's it's amazing. It's a good game with a lot of flaws. Yes it's fun that's what it is. It's fun game just because it's not perfect doesn't mean it's not fun right..

"But if the players that Chicago had weren't those players, I truly believe heck's would say, Hey, thank you so much energy for everything you've done I'm this is this is my this is my baby and I got it. You got to choose your baby over you know whatever. So I I one, hundred percent believe in my heart that if it weren't for the players on that team, which is heck's his players. He would go over and just outright own optic in the CDL spot severing ties from Chicago but there's no way you could do that to those players that takes a little bit away from like. The enthusiasm I have for the deal altogether. Yeah. Right to not see that involved in in call of duty obviously because if they sell the brand has gone then from caller duty like older yet. You can't have. You can't have optic branding in cod league than optic content creation branding outside of it while having nothing to do with each other. Yeah like. Owners of spots. You know that's that's the the biggest challenge in. So it will be a little unfortunate that you just you don't see them in cod anymore but there's opens up other opportunities tim like this opens up a whole nother slew of rumours that we get to talk about right in primarily rumor that's been out there and it's been discussed. It's been shot down and its been brought back up because of a instagram picture is hundred thieves potentially there's tie right through the shot heck's tied hundred thieves had. Not, a roster spot in C. L. but had a call of duty team that was very successful. They won two titles. I believe in in black OPS for. There in la like it it seems like the stars really align for purchase nate shot has turned like you know. Essentially. Dismissed this rumor realm onstream but then today or yesterday I believe yesterday he posted a tweet of him holding both of his black ops for trophies up and then had tweet of him in a picture of him. Heck's docked together. So I think it comes down to a funding situation for one hundred thirties like investing twenty to twenty, five, million like He's not gonNA. Take a loss on the sale. Of that CDL spy I don't believe. So like CDL to me did well enough in a covid world to where it shows that this is a viable product, right? Let's. Get better. They'll make twenty million back by selling like four hoodies with the way. One, hundred, six prices out there close. So that's really only like five maybe six hoodies they have to sell, and then they've already gotten back the twenty million. And I and I have seen nature on twitter saying. Guys I I heard about it. You know I've heard about it on twitter like you guys I don't know any additional information. I, just don't buy that from these guys newt. I let me tell you what if all of a sudden I saw on twitter. Anouchka. Josh. thinking about buying optic? I would. I would not only call tax probably drive to your house to figure out what the hell is going on for..

"Okay. The people that we're seeing do really well invalid at right now. Lower. Tier One tier two players steel is very good right like he's at the level of what you would say like the Nitro in terms of in game leaders in abilities like he's up there with any of them in. So I'm excited to see his career get a second chance just like I was for brax. Just like it was nice to see a sea K although different with ABC k. because we did see even over watching him compete in another game after counter strike. But yeah, like this is This was something that it felt like it was going to happen. That's why we threw it out there saying, this is what we think is going to happen and sure enough it made no sense for it to happen and I'm glad nap before like really really happy for him. Excited to watch him another familiar face in invalid as game grows that's going to be important for our enjoyment level right to have more familiar faces in people that we we know in enjoy watching. So so one hundred thieves will now have HAECO nitro soon to be still it's a pretty good looking lineup to start off. Not Bad for playing with four. Pudgy. Guys. It just depends on like if they both won I feel like somebody like Nitro in steel you know could be the only conflict I could see they're both with in game leader mentalities. But yeah, I think that would be a you get your core together. That's what you do in this game. We know that that works like that's what you do and so I think anything that gets it will be pretty lucky but he will go to a big name team. Yeah. Like a team leader make a move for him or a team that has a slot is looking assigning. Yes I'm definitely happy for Steel I will say some people were like this is a huge loss for the world. The CS world is losing a great one. Let's pump the brakes K. steel has been fun footnote in the world no-fault while I guess they're always falters he was the one who through the game. So let's be real but he couldn't be anything big in the scene because he couldn't get to any meaningful tournaments. So I think it's good to see you know the name sure for people who have been around that long but for newcomers, they were probably just like why do people keep talking about the steel guy? So I think it's great to see him finally you know actually he has a lot to prove to right because for the longest time..

"Get onto champs though this is I think where the highlight of championship Sunday was the call of Duty League Championship. . As said, this , is really CDL has been the beacon of hope and light in the sports world since corona hit because say what you want. . I understand the League has not been perfect I understand. . People have been hit with Diaz attacks in events and that hasn't been handled. Well, . , I understand the game isn't that great at all. . uninstalled it months ago right. . So I get that I hear you but that doesn't take away that this is really been. . The best source of entertainment if you're just looking at, , you want the whole package when it comes to ease sporting event. . CDL. . Deliver that I think especially when it came to their championship and the playoffs so hats off to them right say what you want. . But this really turned out to be I think the highlight of Cova de Sports thus far. . Yeah for sure I. . Mean like you said, , it really was the total package. . We had all the teams competing against one. . Another regional differences there <hes>. . The viewing experience was still exciting I understand the players have their struggles, , but that's you know. . Unfortunately something that they really only have to deal with I'm not noticing the lag is I'm watching and things of that sort. . Right? ? It was just pure entertainment for us. . So yes, , see cdl carry the torch during Kovin ended it ended with a bang to you know maybe we just <hes> Robertson just during the final four. . That's all we'll be discussing and to start off with land in Dallas this weekend I mean that series really kind of set the tone for what we were gonNA. . Get in this final four three showdown. . I should say right with Dallas. ATLANTA . CHICAGO WAITING And that went the distance right off the bat like. . Dallas. . Took that first game dropped the next to not GONNA lie inside I was a little nervous at that point with Dallas being down to you know to one in the managed to pull it out there. . Dropping as into the lower bracket versus <hes> Chicago. . But yeah that that really did set the tone and that was one of those where I think. . Dallas. . Really needed that victory because they had been so abysmal versus Atlanta throughout the year that that was almost felt like the confidence boost they needed to carry them into the final game right? ? Like I think they may have struggled at that point had they had to go up against Chicago after losing to Atlanta the same day because those games were played pretty much back to back later that afternoon was the second game and I thought had Dallas. . Drop, , that game. . Chicago was playing good enough to potentially be able to beat them especially with the demoralized team coming there we talked about momentum all the time, , and this was a big one like this was a big one i. . felt for Dallas to to get that when I had more confidence in phase beating Chicago than I did Dallas beating Chicago at that point. . Had Dallas loss because I agree with you, , I. . I think that the phase game the first phase game for Dallas was a huge confidence builder. . Especially, , you know I'd be curious and we'll get someone from Dallas on the show here. . In the near future I'm curious on who was that a confidence builder for right would have been for the younger guys 'cause sometimes young and dumb is true right sometimes you're too much of a rookie to realize that hey, , they have our number. . Right there's truth to that because there's also on the opposite side where. . You know they they might realize the situation right? ? So I wonder by beating them who was the confidence boost for? Was ? it for the young guys or was it for the old vets to be like we got this? ? So but either way they ended up pulling it off. . Making it to the finals which hats off to both of us even though only one of us, , we're right in our playoff predictions. . At the start of the season we did both say I believe we'll have to run the tape, , but Dallas was going to win Dallas I. . Think was both of our favorites at the start of the entire season. . Yeah I. . mean or I again would probably go look at the tape if. . I. . Look. . We're going to go with. . ME. . The way it was impressive though that that first game because that that game five, , if you recall that it was Ramada <hes> that they played on. . Dallas one, , that six three. . But I think like phase had opened kills on like seven or eight out of the nine maps that they played in. . Dallas made some incredible comebacks along with some sloppy phase play. . That allowed them to take that game five in. . So that's also probably a good thing for Dallas to realize that point. . Had we one that but if phase really played that game five, , properly, , it seemed like they should have won it. . They had numbers in majority of the rounds <hes>. . They even had numbers I. . Mean I think the Alien? Clare ? winning that four be two was such a clutch moment. . In that search and destroy a cloister, , hit a nasty wall bang on one of the rows that was probably one of the best wall banks you'll see in call of duty especially from a distance standpoint like the guy wasn't even it's not like he was on the other side of the wall he was running mid lane in place show was posted up in back in a in an dirty wall bank but you could see Dallas put in their homework look. . That's what I took out of that is they were prepared for different scenarios. . They were calm. . Especially <unk> that four, , V two but. . Hell of a way to start off the weekend for sure for chimps.

"Let's talk some CDL playoffs if you would indulge me. . Because we now know officially the two worst teams in the League and the two teams going home with nothing you you collect your paychecks, , but you get nothing you are the only people in the company not getting Christmas bonus. . So congratulations to Seattle and La gladiators. . Yeah I mean for for for both of. . The two hundred K. minimum they you just. . Lost in one series essentially right because even if the other to flake out next round, , which could very likely happen. . Just lost one hundred K now, , the only person that's happy about this whole situation. . Is Aches kids he he saved himself a little bit of time. . He got a free weekend in if anything. . He he out a couple of weeks prior. . In our preview show and I posted up my bets. . Earlier, , today for those who follow on twitter I posted my betting odds and who I took. . For today and tomorrow's matches because that was already up there I. . Honestly I took. . Seattle to cover the spread, , which was just a plus one and a half meaning they only had to win. . Just, , take it to a map five which given the fact that I thought they were going to win. . And I don't know why looking back on it. . I'm dumb like what have we learned in CDL very rarely do we get surprised right? ? Very rarely? ? Are we shocked by outcomes with the CDL this year? ? That's not a bad thing. . But Damn Seattle. . They threw it in. . I said Seattle might be one of the sleeper teams that could make. . Losers out of the two teams that we thought were going to lose which were La. . GLADIATORS LAG and. . Which is super funny. . Given their Elliott. . Yup and and Seattle. . Said gladiators. . That's their overwatch. . Watch won't be the last time. . I've probably made that mistake a thousand times on the show and you never caught it so. . They're purple there. . You know you know how it goes For making that clear that's that's really on them. . That's not my issue. . La was going to be the team I. . Thought guerrillas had more of a reason to throw it in just because aches did just recently bail on them pretty much publicly announcing like, , yeah we don't stand a chance. . So I thought that was the team was going to take it back to the locker room and be like guys. . We really don't stand a chance, but , they actually performed very well against a optic team that everyone is picking to be the sleeper team. . The could've got three hundred though Kenny disconnected in both of those losses you know so <hes>. . For them, that , was just a terrible situation that we're past. . The point of you know the restart being possible according to the rules which nobody seems to agree with in even myself like both of those cases, , it very easily could have been replayed. . The score was close enough at the time in some cases even got closer than forty five situation especially on the hard point map where I think optic took the lead for a brief moment there but guerrillas got both of the winds on the backs of of Kenny getting disconnected. . So yet theoretically did go to a game five but. . I look at that series as it was fairly one sided in my mind. . There were moments where guerrillas I thought looked really good <hes> but again, , it's just so hard to judge either of their wins in both came in forty-five situation. . Now, , I didn't touch that when it came to betting <hes> I'm I'm an odds better image and really the odds weren't that great on either one like I hadn't had little faith in gorillas and it just wasn't worth the risk of losing it but I wanNA talk a little bit about the Kenny situation. . So obviously, , he had a sub in for game five. . Because he he just wasn't confident enough in his Internet connection to survive. . Again, , because you said, , he ended up dropping was it the first to? ? Map One and map four four. . Okay. . Anyway. . He ended up dropping out of two lagging after I kind of put this on the League's on the League. . In the sense of it is twenty twenty you gotTa have a separate client for your pro league for situations like this right and it's kind of the beauty with counterstrike in the sense of like it's very open source in the sense of any tournament organizers say the and it's happened before right? ? Some connection drop something happens and they need to reset will they kind of just take it to the next the most previous round and they can punch in there okay. . What was the economy at whose economy was what? ? Okay you had this gun aright Pablo Bob Bam. . Bam. . It's now thirteen to eleven again, , restart. . I don't understand how the only solution we have four league. . And I constantly bring this up because it does set the standard that costs at least like what twenty five Mil to get in the only solution you have to where if someone lags out in a game that's online right and you're in your servers are all over the place is well play ball right it is you play where the ball wise and I just I don't really it's almost like there was I mean obviously there's not a plan B but it's like they never even thought of what do we do right? ? Yeah like the developers the first to blame in this situation for night giving that ability right like the choose not to they noticed a yearly game maybe it's just extra work whatever. . But then the CDL is is just as equally to blame because they need to also understand that those things are not possible. . So we need to have rules in place that everybody feels at least most people agree to as being fair you know there are already rules in place prior to the CDL being there in both of those maps would have been replayed in either of those instances but the rule said that the CD Ellis has laid out. . Didn't allow that to happen. So . you're sitting there watching a four be five. . Talk about a newsletter at that point like, , yeah you might be rooting for the team with four, , but it's so unlikely that it that it happens that it's you know. . Throw players. . Professionals this isn't some pug that you're playing in. . Right. This . is these are these are pros. . They're not losing a four on five not going to happen.

"Do have CDL London coming up this week. It is the rare back to back weekends for the CDL. Because of course, they had to take off. OF MINNESOTA? They delayed it so now. Everything's kind of out of whack. Which is fine, I don't mind it. especially. LEADING UP TO CHAMPS FIREARM OFF right. Let's let's get this going here. I'm ready. I'm getting excited I. WanNa see how these teams finish up the year because we are coming down to crunch time, we only have two more events. We have London this weekend and Toronto I believe in two weeks still I don't think that's been screwed up the twenty fourth. No, so that's next week. Okay, perfect, and then champs is going to be like a month or something like that. The dates were reportedly leaked I. Don't have them in front of me either way we are in it. We are in the final stretch of the season. We have in the top four. The top four teams are separated by just sixty points now winning gives you fifty. Some of these guys though only have one more event like phase huntsmen so like their backs are against the wall next week. Next week you can talk for her and locked in which is nice towels or changing, it's just. Order, but yeah, the top four locked in right, and then the pretty much bottom part of the league, the bottom seven. Are All over the place and it could go anyway so these next two weeks like I'm not kidding. I can not stress it out. Enough are huge. For the CDL. This weekend though it is London, you have Dallas Florida. London of course, L. A.. Guerrillas, the surge, legion, optic and New York so with all that hype set up for these last two weeks this weekend's kind of a lacklustre. It really should be easy. For either I would assume empire or Florida to take this I. Don't know if I'm sure disrespected New York but I. Don't think so a little bit right like so what we've seen so far. Is the home team generally as well so I think this week London becomes a team to beat also regardless of of their performance throughout the year. We've seen it. It over and over. Again London's not play terrible, right? They're sitting there at a hundred points like they've done. Okay, they're a win. Loss is roughly fifty percent, so they have the ability to win games or not like trash to your team, and then on top of that you hype it up for their hometown weekend. We see a bunch of hometown teams like. You know really step up <hes>. Seattle's one of those teams on the other end where I. Don't think we're going to get much out of them. <hes> so yeah, you can kind of put them into that. What are we going to get? If it's a great performance good, it'll be surprising another team to potentially. The only reason this is as important for Seattle is. Because of that bottom will say in the yellow right so the bottom four teams. Seattle is the only team that has have two weeks left. Everyone else is only playing one more weekend. Seattle is playing in London <hes>, and what is actually next week in Toronto, so they're playing in London and Toronto other than that. Is the only other team in that bottom half. That's doing that, so that's why I. Think it's so important for Seattle and optic where it's like look you WanNa get the at least the middle of the road seating champs. This is your last chance to do so yeah. They all have something to play for like. Everybody needs to be building momentum going at a chance, everyone's competing and champs right so everyone has something to play for in that sense. You don't WanNa go into champs on A. Three event no win streak. Momentum! for La guerrillas, this is this is your one weekend. They could win this weekend and still being like eighth-place, which helps for your seating, but the chances are other teams would also get points, and you'd still end up in the bottom so if you were going to try something new, you could experiment this weekend if you're the guerrillas and really have no consequence in the end. For me for this week is going to be watching a team like Florida comeback in two. They were out last week. <hes> Dallas also being out week. For Florida, you know. There's still that surprise team for I think for a lot of people right <hes>. They've managed to win now three events. Skies coming onto this roster has been. Laid a night and day difference <hes> for them, it is just it's impressive to see what they've been able to do after what they suffered through. We're going to continue to use that storyline Kaz pristinely leaving I, think everybody just put that team out to the side and it was like <unk>. You don't see what we can get from the rest of the group <hes>, but I think you're doing a disservice to say that. It's kind lackluster in the sense. New York just coming off a win. Right in there. That team that I feel like. Even we've been hyping up. Waiting to see for them to like explode finally. Come onto the scene where they are so now that gives us three good teams in the fray <hes>. The, best team in the League, right now Florida. I would think as play the best over the past like six tournament stretch, so we have a lot going on this weekend. A lot on the line of the be the story line for me is I can Florida Dallas. New York easily making a semi finals spot and we get a match that we're looking to see I think the rest are just fighting for points you know ultimately, but would like see those three guys competing very end.

"Just have it use the the. Data from my family cellular plan and best decision I could have possibly made because I use it all the time now with with sailor. And I'm so happy that I that I did that teach you live in the multi pod lifestyle. Not anymore. So for the past year us two beds because you convince me to use the big, I pro and the small ones. So I had the ten point five and twelve point nine. But few weeks ago we had to sell the ipad that CDL was using because we came to an agreement that we had too many beds in our house. So pads, too many. Was convinced to set one of them and because I wasn't using the time point five much anymore. I gave the temporary five to see Syria. So now she's using that and my main ipads is the twelve point. Nine second-generation two fifty six thirty. It's the one that I've been using since June less year. I guess launched. Yeah, it's also the ipad that bent blessed summer and I got a got a replacement CUNY seriously. Don't know how it happened, but it happened rent, which which scenes right now. So I am all in on the ten point. Five is beautiful, beautiful, rose gold, and it's five, twelve and it's WI fi and cellular. Basically I went like full full on top of the line, fancy pants, ten point, five inch. And I was kind of like Jason that I use the twelve point nine for a long time, but at it was my only computer for about a year. But when I decided to get my MAC book pro and I went for that, I decided that I didn't want to give up the ipad lifestyle, but I also didn't want to carry around a thirteen inch macro and a twelve inch ipad. So the ten point, five inch, I swapped too, and I feel like it's the it's the nice intermediary style at also. Yeah, cellular all the way I feel like I once after that for very, I ipad. I. Cellular. I've never gone back. I said this pretty soon on a nice stamped by. I think that the ten point five is is the closest to be in the perfect time Pat that there's ever been. I use a twelve point, nine home because I kind of use it. Like as my desktop computer relic, it's my big computer, but that ten point five. It's just close enough whenever I travel whenever I'm outside of the home, use my ten point, five inch ipad which has cellular. But when I'm at home, I use my twelve point nine which just wifi and I kind of treat them like my two computers, my desktop, my laptop, that's that's kind of how I look at them. Now. But the twelve point nine, it's currently current state, it's it's too big into heavy in my opinion, foot foot. The easy travel when the ten point five exists and it's wonderful, and it's nice and compact. But it gives you just enough of everything just a big enough screen and his powerful enough that, and I really, I really love it. And that's why I continue to use and having constant use two pads, both sides. It's been very happy with that for me. I use the smart keyboard for both of them when I'm out in about I have a slightly different up for writing home which we're gonna talk about this writing home set up in a minute, but I wanted to know if rendu you use any cases us like the sleeve, or do you use like just a small cover? Like do you use any specific cases of than just a smart keyboard for your ipads? I am. I am insisted on using a case mostly because I, I think rougher with my ipad than I am maybe any other gadget, except my iphone in that it just gets thrown bags and like generally bumped around up. So I have a full back case in front case on it for a long time when I was using the nine point seven in the two point nine I had the Logitech create, which, in my opinion was one of the best keyboard cases out there was a little bit heavy. And now unfortunately, I have Logitech six, ten point five inch version, which is kind of like a Microsoft surface be in that it has like kick stand and has very loose keyboard that kind of snaps in with a been so bad..
