It’s official: 2020 is the worst year ever. 100T is bounced in embarrassing fashion from LCS playoffs courtesy of banger-tweet-slinging Evil Geniuses (#LIVEEVIL). 100Kids are left feeling underwhelmed by this year’s results and scrambling for answers to some obvious problems. We’re still rebuilding and it’s still going to be rough. Jordan and Cole come together to talk about toxicity in the NA scene, reasonable expectations for player development, teams “solving” our squad, and the difficulty of rearranging the pieces (or throwing some away in favor of new ones) to position us for 2021. It’s a tough time to be a fan.
