Hello and welcome back to another episode of the Dive! This episode started off a little sour as Azael, Kobe, and Meteos each eat ate lemons (they all technically lost the bet). They discussed the ongoing VCS investigation, recapped finals, and celebrated the Dive Awards! They had some new awards to dish out this year, and some they didn’t have winners for - namely the “who was the best commissioner” award… The Dive will be on break long with the LCS but there will be some episodes before...

Hello and welcome back to another episode of the Dive! Azael, Kobe, and Meteos recap the latest rounds of playoffs, Kia Top 6 MVP, player of the series, and make their predictions for finals. They also discuss what it takes to be at the top, the importance of team dynamics, and best/worst Scrim strategies.

Azael, Kobe, and Meteos recap round 1 of playoffs, break down Skarner and his updates, discuss their predictions for the upper and lower brackets, and debate who can win the LCS title.
