I play LoL myself, but I believe people here at GS don't care about eSports... Yet. I know this is probably sponsored, but I'd enjoy UMvsC3 and SSF4:AE 2012 championships more...

@electroban I despise the fact that you can no longer download videos in the new site layout. And all links and bookmarks to previous site pages are now broken. Any book marks to any GS page you had will lead to a 404 error.

The new GS is pure fail in a can.

@JBStone1981  

Ask that question at the site's automated scripting that cycles through most recent content in the main page.

Really, you might want to stop using the main page if you don't want to end up seeing things that you don't want to see.

One day, you are going to learn to accept that people that you don't like can still live. ;)

@balleroes- @Woady Really? Jesus...Hes one of the most unprofessional uncharismatic interviewers I think I've ever seen... even his jokes just make me want to cringe. Maybe its just me and the fact that I don't get him, but anything that he hasn't prepped for just seems really uncomfortable

@bmpblast @Woady @balleroes- Its nice to know the story like that actually. Nothing I have said about him is meant personally, and hearing that I can understand why people stick with him. But if that is the case, he needs to put a bit of effort into making the interviews a bit more professional, and keep the private jokes between him and double out. 

Everyone has to start somewhere, and if this is only him getting started then hes doing well, just get him watching some Jonathan Ross shows and he will see how to keep an interview funny whilst still including the audience

@Woady @balleroes- The League community is both very sentimental and appreciative of those who go out of their way to provide a service to the community. Back in the day, Travis was the only person doing "serious" (I use that term lightly) interviews with pro players. We have also has a chance to watch him grow and improve; yes he was even worse back in the day. Because of all of this we stick with him even though he may not be the best interviewer ever. Personally I find his style rather enjoyable but I can see why others would not.

He also provided a place for Doublelift to stay back when Doublelift's parents kicked him out of the house and he hadn't gone pro yet (pro teams also didn't have gaming houses at this time either). This garnered him a ton of respect among the League community, especially the Reddit portion of it, and we're pretty slow to forget things like that.
