    Great discussion in this episode.
    However, there are still severe audio issues. It’s almost impossible to listen at a volume where you can hear Skari and are not deafened by Sean during the show.

      Still? We haven’t had audio complaints in 2020 at all. Although yes, this one there was trouble with Skari’s mic and also Sean was coming out very low, so not my best editing job and I do apologize.

    On Chapter Approved, I would say that if you weren’t playing ITC, the annual update of the mission was both always a big water-shed moment that switched-up the entire tournament meta (similar, I suppose, to the annual changes to the ITC champ’s missions, if not even more drastic as the ITC champ’s missions (in recent years) never fundamentally changed the primaries) and a (again) a welcome change from pervious editions where you would be stuck with the same mission-set over multiple years (which, arguably, motivated many larger events to start making their own missions to begin with).

    If bigger US tournaments like LVO, NOVA, etc.. now start playing GW missions, the mission-changes in CA (if that’s where they stay) will in turn probably feel more meaningful to people who skewed more towards playing ITC missions in the last 2-3 years.
