About this Episode

Recent news came out of Worlds that was not directly related to the showdown between DAMWON KIA and EDward Gaming. Riot Games decided to restrict third party press access to all but a select few for curious, as of now unknown, reasons.

Hunter came in heated about it, and of course we obliged him! We discuss what this decision could mean for media members, how its currently being perceived, as well as why this is a bad look for not just Riot Games, but any publisher with control of their esports league to restrict press access.
