Gambit defeat MIBR 2-1 in ESL Pro League Group C opening match

Gambit have made good on their condition as favorites in the opening Group C match by beating MIBR, although they needed all three maps in the series to do so as the Brazilian squad, who fell in their own pick of Inferno, were able to edge past the CIS squad on Overpass to force the decider map.

Ultimately, however, the team led by Vladislav “⁠nafany⁠” Gorshkov was too much for Marcelo “⁠chelo⁠” Cespedes and company to handle, as Gambit came out on top on Train, 16-8, to start their Pro League run with a 1-0 record.

“We had like three days off [after IEM Katowice] and started to practice hard because we understand that we are not underdogs anymore, enemies are going to prepare for us,” Abay “⁠Hobbit⁠” Khasenov said regarding no longer being underdogs in the post-match interview, “it’s hard to be a top 5 team because everyone wants to beat you. We played a tier 2 tournament and lost to CPH Flames, I think that showed us that we need to prepare for everyone and stay 100% focused because we’re not in the same position as before.”

Gambit kick off their ESL Pro League run with a win

Gambit got off to a flying start on the CT side of Inferno in the series against MIBR, denying the Brazilians back-to-back plants early on before going on a tear and dominating both as a team and individually to take a big 12-3 lead at the switch. MIBR bridged the gap on the defense, winning six of the first seven rounds, but were ultimately unable to hit double digits as Hobbit and company closed the map out 16-9.

The Brazilian side started out Overpass on the defense with a much stronger showing than on Inferno, getting off to an early lead including a crucial pistol buy win when up 7-3 to secure winning the half before hitting double digits, 10-5. Ricardo “⁠boltz⁠” Prass and compnany weren’t as strong on the attack, however, as Dmitry “⁠sh1ro⁠” Sokolov tied things up with a 1vs2 clutch in the 26th round, but MIBR nonetheless rallied the following round to edge out their CIS rivals, 16-13, and push the series to a decider map.

MIBR brought their momentum into Train on the attacking side with an early 4-0 lead, but Gambit quickly took the reins of the map once stable on the defense, accruing a hefty 10-5 lead at half-time before continuing their dominating performance on the terrorist side, allowing just three rounds before closing the series out 16-8.

GNC Names GHOST Gamer its Official Esports Partner 

Avatar

Published

on

Nevada-based sports and esports nutrition company GHOST announced Thursday that it has signed a multiyear partnership with global health and wellness brand GNC 

Financial terms of the partnership were not disclosed. 

Under the terms of the new deal, GHOST Gamer has been named “official esports partner of GNC,” making it the exclusive vendor of esports lifestyle products for the company. GHOST Gamer products featuring flavors from partner brands such as Sour Patch Kids, Swedish Fish, and Sonic Drive-In fast food chains will also be sold at GNC retail locations.  

“Authenticity as you know is super important in this category,” GHOST CEO Daniel Lourenco told The Esports Observer. “GNC doesn’t know anything about gaming, so they’re exclusively leaning on GHOST to bring them into the world of esports. I think the timing is right as gamers are not only looking for products like GHOST Gamer and Energy, but many are starting to care about overall health/fitness and looking for proteins (Ctrl good example), vitamins, etc. GNC carries the full Ghost range and has since launch in 2016.” 

Lourenco added that GHOST Gamer is working with GNC on some activations such as contests and giveaways, as well as planning some future events. 

GHOST signed a two-year partnership with gaming lifestyle company XSET in August of last year, which included jersey sponsorship, a limited edition XSET flavor, a merchandise line, and a content collaboration. It also sponsors several content creators and streamers. GNC has dabbled in esports in the past; in December of 2018 it partnered with U.S.-based World of Warcraft raiding guild Limit for a one-off sponsorship deal. 

GNC, a brand of Chinese pharmaceutical manufacturer Harbin Pharmaceutical Group, claims more than 4,800 retail locations throughout the United States (including franchises and store-in-store operations with partners) as well as franchise operations in 46 international markets.

Dota 2: Top Mid Heroes of Patch 7.29

Avatar

Published

New patch makes flop heroes a hit.


Valve recently launched the 7.29 patch, which was a major overhaul to the game. The update included changes to the map, items, general mechanics and balancing updates to heroes. Some changes have transformed heroes from being a poor pick to dominating in the current meta. We look at the most interesting examples in the mid lane.

Huskar

Huskar had a very rough time before the 7.29 patch. The hero had a win rate of approximately 48%, but the new buffs to the hero saw positive growth of 6-7%. Huskar received a buff to his strength gain. They also changed Inner Fire with shard upgrade, now letting Huskar cast the ability while disabled. One of the hero’s main abilities, Burning Spear, also received a buff as it now costs less HP. These fresh changes along with a mini buff to the Armlet of Mordiggian catapulted Huskar’s win rate.

Common items for Huskar mid are Power Treads, Armlet, Sange and Yasha and Black King Bar. Late game extension items include Heaven’s Halberd, Satanic and other situational items.

Gameplay wise Huskar dominates the laning phase against most mid lane heroes. Players should look to farm a fast Armlet and continue snowballing into the mid-game. The aim is to end the game before the hero falls off or things get complicated in the late game. It is best to get an early Aegis with the help of the Armlet and force fights to take objectives.

Medusa

The Dota 2 Hero Medusa appears in her Eye of the Beholder set, weilding a mighty bow with a draconic green eye set into it

Medusa had a 48.5% win rate before the 7.29 patch. However, buffs to the hero have resulted in around a 5% increase to her win rate. Her base HP regen was increased along with a change in Mana Shield ability, which now provides +100/150/200/250 mana on respective levels. They also rescaled mystic Snake Scepter bounce, which turns the enemy into stone for a longer period.

Core items of Medusa include Power Treads, Manta Style, Eye of Skadi, Butterfly and other situational items. An Aghanim’s Scepter pick-up in mid-game is also quite strong on the hero.

Gameplay style of Medusa rotates around farming in the early phases. As a mid laner, Medusa lacks mobility and is very susceptible to ganks. It is wise to farm the mid-wave fast with help of Mystic Snake and Split Shot and then move over to side camps. It is noteworthy that Medusa is quite ineffective as a mid laner at higher MMRs. Starting mostly at Divine and Immortal brackets, it is best to play her in the safe lane.

Meepo

Valve generously buffed Meepo in the 7.29 patch, prior to which the hero had a poor 48% win rate. His win rate has now climbed to a healthy 53%. With the many changes to Meepo, the hero seems great in the right hands. General items on Meepo include Power Treads, Dragon Lance, Ethereal Blade, Eye of Skadi and Scythe of Vyse.

Similar to Huskar, Meepo needs to end games before the 35-minute-mark. The hero just doesn’t feel strong in the late game. Players need to farm and clear neutral camps fast in the early game. An early Aegis enables Meepo to force bad fights for the enemy team and take objectives fast.

Fortnite: Mero Joins FNCS-Winning Teammates On ENDLESS

Avatar

Published

The band is back together.


The niche esports organization known as ENDLESS is making waves and signing outstanding players in the competitive Fortnite Battle Royale scene. Previously named vsBANDITS, the North American-based esports team rebranded in January 2021 before acquiring several competitors. Fortnite World Cup Finalist Malachi “Reverse2k” Greiner joined ENDLESS shortly after his Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) teammate Deyy. With two-thirds of their trio in the same organization, it was only a matter of time before the final piece fell into place. Today, ENDLESS announced the signing of FNCS Chapter 2 – Season 4 winner Mero, and the entire squad represents the same brand once again.

Mero Completes the Trifecta

The former Team New Age turned XTRA Gaming member had a volatile year. Mero broke out as arguably one of last year’s most impressive controller players. While on Team New Age, he and long-time teammates Reverse2k and Deyy collected their first Axe of Champions in FNCS Chapter 2 – Season 4. Though the three players split from one another briefly and then left Team New Age, they rejoined together and finished fourth in FNCS Chapter 2 – Season 5 as members of different esports teams. ENDLESS welcomed Mero with an impressive highlight reel.

The Pursuit of Supremacy

The stars have all aligned for Mero, Reverse2k and Deyy as they seek their second FNCS Championship in two seasons. Their victory in Season 5 seemed out of nowhere, but they consistently showed up in almost every tournament during those three months. Mero also found success in Solo Cash Cups on top of a DreamHack Open victory with Jonathan “Calc” Weber. There’s a lot to like about this player as he and his teammates look etch further etch themselves in the competitive Fortnite history books. The fact that all three are under the same banner makes it even more intriguing.
