The sample size is quite staggering, with 2018 counting no less than 75 interviews so far. Below are some interviews from the 2018 LCS summer split that have been either well-received by the community, or that helped spotlight its participant(s):
- Youngbuck / Bwipo on boosting Fnatic's mentality: "We've been saying this for weeks: we're going to win Worlds."
- Giants Head Coach Kubz taken through memory lane: "That Fnatic Academy team, the atmosphere, the progression and everything — I miss it still."
- Medic on his climb to the EU LCS: "The delays and rejections actually made me a stronger caster."
- "Should I go for it?" Misfits Gaming's Hans Sama contemplates drawing Misfits anime, talks parallels between manga and gaming passions.
- Splyce's kaSing on taking on shotcalling: "I realised I had to step up; I couldn't just be known for my mechanics."
- Caps and Dylan Falco talk player-coach dynamic: "I didn't get to play anymore Draven."
- Misfits' Mikyx: "I have a team full of weebs, so that's really nice."

- Broxah extends contract with Fnatic for 2019
- Cloud9 to start three academy players in LCS summer opener
- MadLife retires from competitive League of Legends
