I Don’t Even (Listen to This) Podcast E44 – The Order of Things (feat. Travis and ROF)

This week we’re joined by Gfinity two time winners ROF and Travis to talk about their globe trotting adventures in Street Fighter V and how to get to continue to improve despite Australia’s (relatively) small playerbase and travel limitations. We also speculate on what to expect at EVO this year, the announcements that are still to come in 2019 and much more!
