Hey everyone! I've started a video interview series that I'd love to share with the TL community. I'm hoping to be posting one interview per week for as long as I can. These video interviews are going to be reminiscent of JP's series 'Real Talk'.
There are so many people who work to bring us SC2 esports and they each have a unique perspective on the scene and its future. Hopefully people will be interested in the stories and the opinions that will be presented!
This will be the official TL home of my video interviews. I appreciate any and all constructive criticism, anything that you think I could be doing better is relevant!
The most recent interview features Liquid's own Dario 'TLO' Wünsch speaking about his fairytale esports origin story, grappling with community perception, and more!
