After a special fifth episode, in which coaches Janko "YNk" Paunović and Sergey "lmbt" Bezhanov, who had just been removed from the mousesports lineup, made an appearance, the usual panel led by James Banks will return in the sixth tonight.
At the start of the show, the topics will revolve around the latest news, such as the new format of ECS for Season 7, and rumors, with StarLadder reported as 2019's second Major's organizer.
We will also take a look back at last week's GG.BET ICE Challenge, where Natus Vincere failed to live up to the status of the obvious favorite with a loss to Heroic in the opening stage and an overall second placing following North's triumph in the grand final.
Naturally, the main focus of today's show will be the IEM Katowice Major, which is set to kick off in just a few days, on February 13, with the New Challengers Stage. The panel will discuss the opening matchups, look at which teams should or could make it through and for which it's outside of the realms of possibilities, and close out with making the Pick'Em choices.
As usual, we will close out with the best viewer questions, so feel free to hit us up in the comments or during the show in the Twitch chat with whatever you'd like to ask the panel as a whole or any of its individual members.
The topics of the sixth episode will be:
- ECS with a new format
- StarLadder getting 2019's second Major?
- Na`Vi's failure at ICE Challenge
- Striker vs. Prof
- IEM Katowice New Challengers Stage breakdown
- HLTV Confirmed do the Pick'Ems
- Viewer questions
