  • Sorry about Richard's audio, we did our best to save the interview but sadly he was unaware that his mic switched to his webcam.

  • C9 investing such amount of millions in that roster, is probably biggest money waste in all of sports. They will win nothing.

  • With such a huge budget, you’d think cloud9 could buy HenryG a better mic. Sounds terrible

    J CJ C2 kuukautta sitten
  • I can tell HenryG is feeling the pressure from this c9 lineup he built. It's going to be a lot of hate and bad press if they start off bad. Which I don't think is justified, but on the other hand. You can't say you are going to win flashpoint and go out in groups. So there is no excuse not to at least make the playoffs here.

  • I’m sorry but this is painful to watch when there’s 20 ads spread out during the duration of the video. Every 3 minutes, there’s an ad-break. Shape up Rivalry because the topics and the interview is interesting Edit; Thanks for fixing the ammount of ads.

  • Early on Henry was pretty vocal about not just picking the best available player but picking the best player for each role. So it's interesting that he is banking on training es3tag into the entry role. There is no doubting his talent but stepping in to entry and going on to win Flashpoint... that would be an accomplishment. Good story line hope it works out for them.
