Episode 22.5 - The Annual B&R Episode with Mg

Yes, it is that time of the year again. N00bcon has come and gone and a month has passed, something that for many people is a sign that it is soon time for the almighty Old School blog to publish an update. What update you may ask? The ban and restricted list of course! That is, if there even will be any changes?

If you want to know, listen to the episode in which our Founding father Magnus “Mg” De Laval tells us for the third year in a row what will happen, why and also why things didn’t happen. This year it also comes with a sort of a warning, something to think about until next time.

This is a special episode of Flippin’ Orbs recorded before Grant decided that he needed to take a break from the podcast. And isn't it fitting that this last episode is all Grant?
