I don't often post Second Sons episodes on here, but I think our discussion in the latest episode deals with issues that this community cares a lot about.

 

Give it a watch...

Let me know what you think and where this community stands on the latest major change in how top level Thrones is played.

I am so glad Chris is on this cast (even when I disagree with him) - attempts to really be a rational counterbalance/devil's advocate.

Nah, he's not. I just ... I posted something and it was an incomplete thought. Basically I was just at the early part about the prize support at Worlds, and I felt he was single-handedly being the counter-balance. The dynamic changed as you moved on to other topics, and on the whole a very solid episode. 

 

I did feel you guys missed an opportunity to discuss the "If this game is more strategic *with* open knowledge, why not make all tournament rounds open information". It's not just an attempt at a slippery slope fallacy, as I think it illustrates what bothers me about this change: it further reinforces that the cut and the swiss are two different "games".
