The Loser's Bracket - Round 110
Featuring special guests Adam Apicella, SVP of MLG, and vVv NoControl!

Major League Gaming has partnered with CBS Interactive! What will this mean for the world of eSports? Joining us to tackle this very subject is the Senior Vice President of MLG, Adam Apicella. Listen in as Adam takes on tough questions from the Loser's Bracket hosts! Full breakdown of the show below!

Topics and highlights this week include:
  • vVv NoControl, League of Legends manager for vVv Gaming, introduces himself as a guest co-host for the week. (Time: 00:06:30)
  • Adam Apicella joins the crew of The Loser's Bracket live! Why should we be excited about the MLG / CBSi partnership? Adam explains it to us. (Time 00:08:30)
  • What place does Gamespot have in this deal? Curt asks Adam for more details about Gamespot coverage of MLG events and content. After this there was a slight bit of technical difficulities with Skype. Our apologies for this! (Time: 00:13:00)
  • MLG Anaheim is right around the corner! Any word on other titles? Could League of Legends be at Anaheim? What will be different abut the newest MLG title? Also, what will be different with the production values at Anaheim? (Time: 00:18:15)
  • There will be a title at MLG Anaheim that NO ONE has had their hands on yet. Could it be Heart of the Swarm? Oh my! Over 200 stations will be available to play this title. Will you be able to play this game as a spectator? Adam also drops hint about some important players that will be in Anaheim. (Time: 00:25:30)
  • Will there be more vendors at MLG Anaheim? Will there be more seats? (Time: 00:30:00)
  • vVv NoControl uses his skill in subtlety as he asks Adam if League of Legends will have an open qualifier for Anaheim. Will the next title MLG announces be invite only? Also, Paradise inquires about other Blizzard titles. Could we see Diablo III? (Time: 00:31:30)
  • The continuation set rule will not be used during the Arena this weekend. Is the rule gone for good? What does Adam say about this subject? (Time: 00:35:00)
  • What could go wrong at Anaheim? Adam leaks news about two tournaments going on for one title during MLG Anaheim. Paradise throws a guess out to which title this might be. Does NASL have a role in this? (Time: 00:39:00)
  • What can we expect from the Arena this weekend and the seven SC2 streams? (Time: 00:43:00)
  • Will we see the MLG Arena expand to more than eight players with more open qualifiers in the future? What is the reason for the answer Adam gives? After this, Jerry asks Adam about the new pricing model for the Spring season. (Time: 00:49:30)
  • What is MLG looking for differently with the Spring Arenas? What can we do as fans to help? (Time: 01:01:00)
  • Where does the CBS Interactive partnership come into play? Will it be seen at the event in person or mainly seen online? How will Gamespot feature what MLG does? (Time: 01:07:00)
  • What is the reasoning for the timing of MLG announcements? (Time: 01:14:30)
  • Does MLG have a plan for the up and coming players and eSports personalities? What does the ecosystem of the amatuer look like? (Time: 01:18:00)
  • Paradise fires off a few quick questions from viewers. Adam recently mentioned a trip to Korea on Twitter. What is MLG planning with this trip to the other side of the world? Could we be seeing an MLG team tournament for Starcraft soon? (Time: 01:28:15)
  • The fighting game arena is only a week away. What new things can we expect in the fighter space? What will Gootecks be doing with MLG? (Time: 01:30:00)
  • What games would Adam personally like to on MLG later this year? What does Adam say about Guild Wars 2 and Diablo III? (Time: 01:39:15)
  • Our hosts thank Adam for coming on the show, Curt sends a poem to Adam, and Adam gives shoutouts to his staff. (Time: 01:45:00)
  • As Adam takes off from the show, the hosts do a quick deconstruction of the interview with Adam. Will MLG be using Summoner's Rift for League of Legends? Will we see Dominion? Could we see both modes? (Time: 01:50:30)
  • Could team specific skins (such as vVv, EG, etc) be a way to help monetize League of Legends and show support for teams? Could this be a way to distinguish teams during tournaments? Is the idea possible? After this, the hosts go into a discussion on spectating both Starcraft and League. (Time: 02:03:30)

I loved how Jerry threw out LoL out there, and Adam was so quiet about it, it was funny

Loved this one! Can't wait to see LoL in MLG for the first time, and I'll definitely be supporting our LoL team in this one! (and let's face it, we all know Adam's talking about LoL).

But yeah, lots of good stuff to be heard in this episode. Though, I do wonder if NoControl was content to just sit back and let everyone else talk while Adam was on?
