    • Producer Kali joins us to talk about the import rule in the LCS, and whether it makes sense to do away with it.

    • The trailer has dropped for the new Mortal Kombat movie, and it looks awesome! We are ready for this!

    • Ric’s got a bunch of clips of people raging on stream, and the crew has to guess which game each rage clip is for.
  • (57:04) Gaming and Esports News –
