The Salt Mine Episode 7: The 2017 GP Schedule and the Future of Legacy

Download Link

In this week’s episode we confront a topic we’ve been meaning to talk about for some time… The 2017 GP schedule, lacking Legacy GPs in Europe and Asia. Is this an indication of what the future of Legacy holds? We bring Dice_Box from The Source to discuss this.

We rant, we get emotional, we probably offend people, we probably get facts wrong. But hopefully we’ve brought some issues into light which are things we, as Legacy players, have to come to terms with or take action upon. From this episode, above all, we would love to hear your feedback. Yell at us, criticise us, tell us we’re wrong. Discussion and thought is all we want to prompt with this.

Helene Bergeot’s Tweet:

We probably got stuff wrong… GP New Jersey was the third largest GP (at the time) but indeed was the largest Legacy event, ever.
