Brian "TheOddOne" Wyllie, Jungler of Team SoloMid, is the star of the 44th episode of my 'Grilled' interview series.
What impact did Dyrus' addition have on TSM's 2012 success? What are TheOddOne's thoughts on Diamondprox's influence on jungling? How would inSec fare against NA teams? How does Saintvicious' style compare with TheOddOne's? Was CLG overrated in 2012? Why does he think the NA teams that went to Korea didn't take much from the experience? How good is Snoopeh?
