About this Episode

The news was teased out over the last few weeks, but finally it was confirmed that Torrent, the esports arm of Wisdom Gaming, was joining the Halo Championship Series. With players from Pushin P and Unsigned Talent, they secured a top 16 performance in a tough Open format, but before that went down this past weekend, we had a chance to talk to Wade Penfold, the VP of Esports at Wisdom Gaming. Also known as "Dreadnaught," Wade has been all around esports as a professional player in "Heros of the Storm," a commentator and host for various scenes and events, and now in an executive position helped secure an expansion into Halo Infinite esports. We discuss how it all went down and what exactly happens behind the scenes when these things take place.
