State of the Game was a podcast hosted by JP "itmeJP" McDaniel. Many guests were invited onto the show, including top foreign players and notable members of the StarCraft community.

Format[edit]

With weekly podcasts over an hour in length, the topics of discussion usually began with talk of what the hosts and guests were spending time on recently, then transitioning into talk about recent competitive matches and leagues. They also spoke about the game in a more general sense, effects of patches, new meta game developments, etc. The show would close with questions from the audience section.

On May 31st 2011, Geoff "iNcontroL" Robinson, left the show as a pillar, the show was on hiatus while JP found someone to replace Geoff. On July 4th 2011 the show returned with JP McDaniel, Sean "Day(9)" Plott, Tyler "NonY" Wasieleski as Pillars with Dan "Artosis" Stemkoski replacing Geoff as a new pillar.

On August 2nd, 2011, iNcontroL returned to the show permanently according to JP's post on the TeamLiquid forums. He also stated that guests would not appear unless one of the pillars was missing.

It was announced on January 12th 2012, that the show parted ways with MLG, thus becoming independent again.[1]

After the 72nd episode, itmeJP took a break from the show.[2] It returned on October 18th 2012, with itmeJP as the only remaining pillar.[3] As of Episode 100 on August 16th 2013, State of the Game was put on indefinite hiatus, [4] eventually coming to an informal end as of the final episode, a Christmas/year end review [5]

Departure from the scene and legacy[edit]

In 2013, JP began to step away from the StarCraft II community. JP has since established himself as a popular livestreamer on twitch.tv, with variety game play, his 'Roll Play' series, 'Dropped Frames', and more. To this day, whenever a new talkshow is created in the StarCraft II community, it is common for fans to compare it to 'State of the Game' in terms of quality and entertainment.
