Team EG and Team Pandemic are the top two North American teams and the only non-European's attending any of the four major LAN's this summer: Antwerp eSports Festival (AEF), the-eXperience (TEX), Multiplay i34 and the Balearikus Party in Mallorca, Spain.
The podcast panel discuss a wide range of subjects over the 40 minute show, fleeting mentions of the Championship Gaming Series (CGS), Counter Strike, Return to Castle Wolfenstein (RTCW) and even the Cyberathlete Professional League (CPL) break up the heavy focus on Call of Duty 4.
Jock Yitch controls the flow of discussion as the panel discuss and weigh up which LAN can't be missed, which events the North Americans will attend and an extensive briefing on which European teams should be feared. More informal comments include the United Kingdom's awful food, American solidarity and the difference in play styles between Europeans and North Americans.
