NEXT SHOW: TBD
Hey guys! I'm Thalandros, a big Starcraft enthusiast, player, and occasional caster and content creator. Last year I started off doing The Final Hours, which is a talkshow based on the WCS ladder challengers.
Because those only happen 4 times a year, and because the subject matter is very limited, I decided to throw something else together. I present to you: The Run By!
The Run By is a new talk show that I hope to host periodically - not every week or even two weeks, but whenever I feel it could be interesting or necessary. Basically, whenever there's something important to discuss. The purpose of the show is to create an open discussion where every guest can speak their mind at any topic that comes by. I purposely ask guests that are different from each other in terms of their job within StarCraft II. This way we have different perspectives with different thoughts!
So who and what's next?
The first and next episode of The Run By will air on Tuesday, Nov 28 7:00pm GMT (GMT+00:00) on my Twitch channel.
The topic will be WCS 2017 and everything around it: Results, potential issues or pointers for 2018, the Warchest and it's effect on WCS, etcetera. We expect the show to be between 1-2 hours long and lots of different subjects will be discussed!
Our guests for the first show:
None other than ZombieGrub, Cham, and Optimus!
Zombiegrub has been a long time caster within StarCraft II. She has recently been casting the most prestigious StarCraft events there are, including the WCS Global Finals at BlizzCon. As the only non-player guest, she has some great insights in things that the other guests might not think about or overlook. Follow her on twitter
Cham has been often overlooked, but in the past year he's shown how much of a dominant force he really can be. Placing 9th in the WCS 2017 rankings, Cham has really improved a lot over the years and we can't wait what's in store for him for 2018. As a veteran of professional SC2 at this point, Cham will bring some great insights from a high level professional player. Check out the interview I did with Cham at Valencia 2017 here and follow him on twitter.
Optimus is one of the best players coming out of the Netherlands in Starcraft history and he's around to show it. 2017 has been a big improvement on previous years for him in terms of performance, however he's still often seen as the underdog. Optimus's grind from the bottom up is really inspiring, but also really interesting. It will be interesting to hear his thoughts on what has been happening in the past year from his perspective. Check out the interview I did with Optimus at Valencia 2017 here and follow him on twitter.
VoD's will be posted as soon as the show is over and archived here. They will be posted on YouTube. If there is any request for posting it on another form of media, please do let me know!
