Opinions May Vary

I've been following competitive gaming since around 2008 when Str8 Rippin' won the MLG Halo 3 National Championship. I like to call those "the glory days" but I know many people will disagree with me and say either one of two things: The glory days were during the Halo 2 era or the glory days haven't even happened yet as MLG has only gotten bigger with the release of newer games such as Starcraft 2 and League of Legends but that's beside the point. Not many of my friends know I've been following the scene and the ones who do know usually get bored with my ramblings within minutes. Apparently there's only so much the casual gamer can handle when it comes to 17-25 year old dudes who play video games for a living. Who knew?

What I'm getting at is that it's rare when I get to sit down and completely nerd out about the competitve scene with someone else who follows it. And lucky me: I got to do just that with this week's guest Larry "Xeraxus" Clark.

Larry is an avid gamer, caster, streamer, and he even writes for Team Dignitas. He was gracious enough to join us this week and give us a huge lesson on competitve gaming and what it's like to actually be a part of the scene unlike myself who just sits in front of his computer eating doritos thinking "....what the hell is a mothership core?"

Be sure to check out Larry's Twitch channel where he regularly streams and casts tournaments and while you're at it go to the Dignitas blog section and read up on his work!

Until next week.
