Slingshot Readers,

We NEED your support. More specifically, the author of this article needs your support. If you've been enjoying our content, you know that a lot of work goes into our stories and although it may be a work of passion, writers gotta eat. If just half our readers gave 1 DOLLAR a month, one measly dollar, we could fund all the work from StuChiu, DeKay, Emily, Andrew (and even Vince). If you contribute 5 DOLLARS a month, we invite you to join our Discord and hang with the team. We wouldn't bother you like this if we didn't need your help and you can feel good knowing that 100% of your donation goes to the writers. We'd really appreciate your support. After all, you're what makes all this happen. Learn more

Taking Aim Episode 13: “The NA problem”

In the latest episode of “Taking Aim,” Slingshot’s Jarek “DeKay” Lewis and Stephen Chiu discuss takeaways from DreamHack Summer, the continued problems with North American Counter-Strike and Richard Lewis’ recent report about case opening sites.

They then debate who is right in the North/G2 feud, which EnVyUs team is the real one and if there should be more show matches. Finally, they do a deep dive on the treatment of the banned match fixers.
