During IEM Katowice, Michal "CARMAC" Blicharz took some time to sit down with Jaxon to discuss the state of the scene, the struggles in some regions, and the place Starcraft holds at IEM Katowice.
"The show isn't about the stage. The stage is a canvas for the players to express themselves on. And it has also become an icon. If you show a picture of this stage to any esports fan, he'll know it's Katowice"
