The three of us are going to be scattered to the corners of the world for the next few weeks, but never fear!

Hard to believe we've been at this for 4 months already!

Two weeks ago we talked to iiNK about the manager's side of pro esports, and this week we tackle a similar topic from the player's point of view with Strafesh0t.

We talk about how players are setting up scrims (scrimmages) to practice against other competitive players, how the pro competitive scene governs itself, how playstyles are developing, and more!

Rank #9: Ep 32: Skirmish, Slowdown, and Splodes

Podcast cover
Read more
This week we start a transition from "just build lol" to the more updated and correct "lol..should I actually build?" We take a look at the number of weapons and items that seem focused building destruction and discuss whether there are starting to be too many overlaps in usage as well as too few mats to make it all worthwhile. We also take a look at how entertaining and effective the Kingpin ruleset has been for Summer Skirmish weeks 5 and 6 (our answer is basically "very")!

Rank #12: Ep. 19: The Pros Are Playing A Different Game (basically) feat. OKSteel and Xarps

Podcast cover
Read more
A little update news, new Fortnite Fortnights, and a BIG interview with OKSteel and Xarps, two professional Fortnite players from Team Wawa and Wawas Bootcamp.

We touched a little bit on pro strategies a few weeks ago when we talked about the scrim scene, but this week we really dive into how the pros are playing - official team role breakdowns, strategies that had never occurred to us, and a some true pro tips for all levels of players.

We HIGHLY recommend everyone check out OKSteel and Xarps on Twitch, where they stream professional scrims (among other things) - it was truly eye opening for us, and great to watch. You can find them here:
