Hey, good job Thorin. The questions are as good as usual, but the player is much smarter ! Really surprised @ some of Mithy's answers !

Quick tip : He picks Moopz as fictional France team midlaner but Moopz is actually from Belgium !

Cheers !

Great interview! Mithy clearly knows what he's talking about.

Keep up the good work Thorin, absolutely love your interviews.

Quick feedback, if I may: not sure about the format change on the interviews, with Thorin in front of camera when asking the questions, but absolutely sure you should not look at the camera. It's akward, takes out the great feeling the interviews have of a nice in-depth conversation between both and gives the impression you care less about the guy being interviewed and more about the audience. Dunno, I don't like it at all. Still amazing job tho, thank you for giving us such top quality stuff.

Hey thooorin, could you please add the date when the interview was made(for the next ones or even prior)? I think its important to know when it was made for better reflections (pun intended) regarding the/some answers/questions. Sorry if its a bit confusing, thank you for reading and good work.
