    Qualifiers for a million dollar tournament are going on and Daequan and Hamlinz are playing duo pubs together smh

    why bother sweating a tourny when you can make ez cash streaming

    I get that but as they're signed by one of the biggest esports teams in the world as pros it's pretty mad seeing them choose to not play a big tournament. Love Daequan but he can't expect anyone to take him seriously as a pro player. He's just a talented entertainer at this point

    They will still get invited to participate. It is a little shocking how hard some of the bigger named players are struggling with this format though.

    That's not how it works. There aren't any invited players. It's all from these qualifiers

    The format is on their website if you wanna look it up.

    There is a very tiny chance they leave out so many well known pros just because of this format.

    Unless they do something completely different for big streamers/pros who didn’t qualify.

    Finished with 18, 22, 22, and 19. Could have done better but that was the most fun I’ve had playing FN in forever.

    There is literally no way they will be just randomly inviting popular streamers. It's all based on their scores as shown on the website. There would be uproar if they suddenly changed the format. It's supposed to be as a practice to help them prepare for how they do the world cup

    Ninja got 128k viewers

    Chap 35k.

    If anything, these wq would have boosted his viewership. I would have watched how he did. But he preffered playing Creative Destruction.

    Yep exactly. Everyone wanted to watch them do the tournament. Daequan ended up playing it with 90 minutes to go and yet still managed to get 22 points so he's a pleb for not giving it a proper go

    I find Daequan proper entertaining so when I saw him online thought I’d tune in only to see him play a duo with Hamlinz and then move to some Fortnite copy cat game. Is this what TSM expects of their players or are they just considered content creators now? I thought they were the pro team.

    Tfue seems to struggle with this format, takes slow starts and backs out of fights instead of taking it on. Leaves him with poor loot and low points total per game. I know they won the duos thing in what is a similar format but Cloakzy was on fire and leading the way. In another tournament they played the slow game and didn’t place.

    Its nothing like twitchcon.
    500 cap, increased farming, 50 hp shield.

    They never played the customs where epic tried the format under pros. Everyone else got a feel how to play, they never did.

    Yeah it's a weird situation. At least Myth has put in the effort and now he's actually seeing some results . I thought they'd be obligated to play every tournament they can considering they're pros.

    Really? Where has this info come from? That's a big yikes if true. Shows how much of an advantage kb+m is in a scrim environment. Makes Aydan, Issa and Kamos achievements even greater

    14th in a duo scrim now. Not too shabby for a 20 fps pleb. And 3rd end game.

    Hes not on console but someone got like 33. BLIznFSN or something.

    He was in Syphers game yesterday, he got killed 7th. The blizn guy won the game with 8 kills.
    Sypher bought a slurp for metal and never filled the metal back up. Was a really bad play. Cost him late game.

    oh yeah i thought he said controller. no idea then

    ah yes i remember watching that. honestly i thought sypher played really well. didnt expect him to get so close considering he doesnt scrim as much as a lot of the others. props to anyone who managed to get top 200. The pressure would have been unbelievable. i felt tense just watching

    also, did anyone see Nick Mercs final match of the tournament? There was a minute to go so literally about 50 people dropped tilted and at one point there was probably over 10 players right next to each other jumping with tac shotguns like madmen trying to nab kills. Nobody had mats either. it was maybe the craziest scene ive ever seen :joy:

    Turns out there were console players who qualified. Nobody seems to know the exact figures though. Doesn't seem like many at all
