    In this special episode of The Dive, Kobe & Mark welcome for the first time LPL caster Dagda to give us his thoughts on Play-Ins & the upcoming Group Stage.  If things look odd, it's because our fantastic tech team ships necessary equipment to New York City & we had to step away from our usual cameras for The Dive. For those of you wondering about Divephoria, that's next week! (When the Euphoria folk land in NYC) We went forward with this format because it just seemed weird to not do SOMETHING ahead of the Groups Stage.

    The Trio reviews the highs of the Play-In Stage, take some time huff hopium all thanks to Champions Queue & made predictions heading into the Group Stage. Where will we find the upsets? What teams are worthy of the hopium? What teams are overrated?If you like Dagda's comfy poncho, check it out at merch.riotgames.com to pick up one of your own. Anecdotally, our producer is def getting one it's perfect for being a degen gamer BUT FASHION.

    We'll be returning with Divephoria episodes from NYC to ATL to San Fran! So make sure you meet us here in the lolesports youtube channel or wherever you listen to audio podcasts! The Worlds Group stage kicks off with another EU vs. NA matchup, Cloud9 vs. FNC at 2PM PT/5PM ET on Friday. Don't you miss it!

The Dive is more than your typical teen drama

Sure, the characters might be a bit cliché - Azael is the typical class braniac, MarkZ is the bad boy with surprising insight, and Kobe is the young student full of enthusiasm - but fantastic performances and flawless execution make the Dive as fresh as ever.

This season we hope to see the conclusion of some of the long-running plot lines; will NA ever be good at worlds (probably not), will C9 manage to win the split that counts (probably), and are there any Australians NOT playing in the LCS for NA to steal (not many)?

But the Dive is about more than just League of Legends, it’s about life, it’s about youth, it’s about the friends that League has brought together, and that is always worth a listen. 5/5
