'Reflections' with NintendudeX

Episode 7 of 'Reflections' has Coast Jungler NintendudeX talking jungling past and present.

Joshua 'NintendudeX' Atkins, Jungler of Team Coast, is the star of the seventh episode of 'Reflections'.

How does NintendudeX sees his early LANs in 2012, placing top four a number of times? Why have the top NA teams been so slow to recognise rising talent outside of their ranks? Who is the better NA jungler: meteos or Xmithie? What were Saintvicious and TheOddOne like in their primes?

NintendudeX would like to thank Team Coast sponsors LoL-Class, CyberPowerPC, Corsair, ClickPoint Software, and Leads Distribution Software.
