The two latest in-game updates, Flashpoint Season 1, EPL Season 11, the new Road to Rio major qualification, a tonne of other headlines and then some talk about tribalism. Aristotle has the last word. @thetruthcsgo.com
Astralis sign a sixth player, Rio Major moves to November, Zews leaves MIBR and I come up with Fallen’s only way forward. Oh and Jamppi sues Valve. Then I rant for a bit about the virus and try to work out what it’s telling me about the world and the people around me. @thetruthcsgo.
Talking about IEM Katowice, Alex leaves Vitality, Hunden out of Mad Lions, Dreamhack Anaheim, Flashpoint’s first day and a CSGO workout. @thetruthcsgo.
I review Danylo ‘Zeus’ Teslenko’s autobiography, ‘Against All Odds: The Way to Victory’. Plus give a rundown of Dreamhack Anaheim Day 1 and some other news.
