Words With rolls on with its fourth episode, this time covering something extremely timely. It’s also been the most well-received episode of the show yet, which has been great for expanding my audience; this is probably the interview I’ve been most proud of, and has left me with the warm and fuzzies. This is definitely a good sign for the continued filming of the show.

Nick “NickWu” Smith is a LCS veteran, top lane player, and now, substitute for Vulcun Command. After playing in the Spring LCS with Team compLexity, he has departed the team to play for Vulcun Command as a substitute. In this interview, we talk about the transition, the need for communications and coming back from adversity. Timestamps are after the break, or in the video description.
