Doublelift says Alphari deserves to start for Team Liquid, references his impressive Spring Split stats

Published

on

The majority of the League of Legends community was shocked after Team Liquid benched Alphari this past weekend following the team’s first game of the 2021 LCS Summer Split.

A reason for the benching wasn’t given by head coach Jatt, who said in the announcement that the decision was based on multiple factors and not only gameplay. But former Liquid ADC Doublelift chimed in on the discussion and said TL should play Alphari based on his performance from the previous split, which ranked him first or second in most statistics, according to gol.gg.

Alphari dominated his counterparts in the spring and he was one of the last two contenders for the 2021 LCS Spring Split MVP. The other was Blaber, who won the award in the end for his dominant jungle performance throughout the split, which helped Cloud9 qualify for the MSI.

TL won one of their three matches during the first week of 2021 LCS Summer Split. The win came against CLG, while Liquid lost to C9 and TSM. During the two games that Liquid’s new starting top laner Thomas “Jenkins” Tran played, he positioned himself as a top laner who sacrifices his resources to help his team. So far, he’s produced an average kill participation at 87.5 percent and vision score per minute at 1.69. But his KDA, average kills, and average CS per minute are much lower compared to his counterparts, sitting in the middle or the bottom of the rankings in these stats, according to gol.gg.

TL’s next matches of the 2021 LCS Summer Split will be against Dignitas, Evil Geniuses, and Immortals this weekend.

Ax1Le secures second MVP award at IEM Summer

Published

on

The Russian star put on a dominant performance in the grand final to clinch his second accolade in the last three months.

Sergey “⁠Ax1Le⁠” Rykhtorov has been named HLTV.org’s Most Valuable Player of IEM Summer following the conclusion of the $250,000 tournament’s grand final, which saw Gambit secure a flawless victory against OG in a best-of-five affair.

The 19-year-old rifler spearheaded the Russian team’s run to the title with a terrifying performance and an exceptionally consistent level, topping the charts almost every step of the way as he recorded 1.40+ ratings on nine out of the twelve maps Gambit won over the course of the tournament.

Ax1Le ties s1mple for the most MVPs so far in 2021

Ax1Le beat his grand final opponent Mateusz “⁠mantuu⁠” Wilczewski as well as teammate Dmitry “⁠sh1ro⁠” Sokolov to the individual award on the back of a brilliant display in the title decider itself, in which he was the highest-rated player and best damage-dealer on each of the three maps.

The Russian youngster now has two MVP awards to his name — one more than sh1ro — after having earned his first in Gambit‘s runners-up campaign at ESL Pro League Season 13 in early March. The only other player to have claimed two MVP awards this year so far is Aleksandr “⁠s1mple⁠” Kostyliev, as you can see in the list below.

2021 MVPs by HLTV.org:

BLAST Premier Global FinalUkraine Aleksandr “⁠s1mple⁠” Kostyliev

Published

on

More details about the next big Among Us update dropped during the Xbox and Bethesda E3 2021 showcase, revealing developer Innersloth’s plans to expand the multiplayer game even further. 

On June 15, Among Us will begin supporting 15-player lobbies across all available platforms. 

This update will also include the new Hide and Seek mode, adding new roles called Sheriff and Scientist, along with the new coral, tan, rose, maroon, banana, and gray avatar colors. Other new cosmetics, achievements, and mobile controller support will also be made available. 

Despite being shown off at the Xbox conference, Innersloth still did not give a concrete date for when Among Us will be launching on Microsoft’s console. But the team did confirm it’s still planned for release later this year. 

Among Us is available on the Epic Games Store, Steam, Nintendo Switch, and mobile currently and will launch on PlayStation later this year too, likely with a similar timeframe to the Xbox launch.

Sea of Thieves is getting an all-new epic tale in the latest expansion: A Pirate’s Life, featuring Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean.

Microsoft revealed the expansion during its Xbox and Bethesda Showcase at E3 2021. Fans were greeted with real gameplay footage featuring players and crew joining the infamous Captain Jack Sparrow in his quest for treasure—and, of course, all while evading Davy Jones, himself.

Here’s when Captain Jack will be paying the Sea of Thieves a visit.

Fans can sail the seven seas with Disney’s Captain Jack Sparrow on June 22—just over a week from today!

The collaboration features an all-new epic narrative that appears to spotlights players along their quest to help Jack Sparrow secure treasure and lift an ugly, undead curse. Sparrow flexes his impeccable charm and eccentric attitude throughout, allowing his new adopted crew to feel as though they’re really getting to know the Black Pearl’s captain, himself.

Players will take part in massive naval battles and visit classic Pirates of the Caribbean locations—including what looks like Sparrow’s marooned island. All the while, Davy Jones will be hot on their heels.

Evil Geniuses eliminate T1 after ‘anonymous threat’ delay at WePlay Esports AniMajor

Published

on

Production always says the show must go on, and WePlay Esports made that call earlier today following an anonymous call that involved a threat near the hotel where AniMajor teams, staff, and talent were staying. 

All of the Dota 2 teams, staff, and talent were required to evacuate the hotel following the anonymous threat, which caused a delay in the previously announced match schedule. Once WePlay was given the all clear, however, Evil Geniuses and T1 stepped on stage to fight it out in the lower bracket finals, with EG coming out on top 2-1.

T1 were the only remaining team that directly qualified for the AniMajor playoffs, but back-to-back losses to PSG.LGD and EG have them heading home to prepare for The International with a third-place finish. This was a much improved run compared to their Wild Card exit at the ONE Esports Singapore Major earlier this season. 

EG will now compete in their second straight Major finals, having finished second to Invictus Gaming at the Singapore Major. 

No matter who wins, both EG and LGD are directly qualified to The International 10 and will battle for their share of more than $40 million in Sweden starting on Aug. 5.
