Live on Three Episode #24

BY Andrew Miesner / August 2, 2009

This week’s special guests will be e-Stars champions Manuel “Grubby” Schenkhuizen and FNATIC team leader Patrick “cArn” Sättermon.  We will talk to grubby about his recent win streak after a slow start to the year, his orc-mirror match win over Fly100%, Moon not making top 3, the current state of the European Warcraft 3 scene as well as international, and Starcraft 2’s near and long-term impact on the future of RTS eSports. The chat with cArn will consist of FNATIC’s continued dominance thus far in 2009, how they’ve been able to stay on top for this long, thoughts on mTw and SK’s play, as well as how the Asian teams stack up currently, topping GotFrag’s World Rankings, Sweden’s ENC lineup, and if this is the best team FNATIC has ever had since the team’s inception.
