Spinx’s settings, crosshair, and viewmodel for CS:GO




Israeli entry fragger Lotan “Spinx” Giladi burst onto the Counter-Strike scene when he joined c0ntact Gaming in 2020.

He kicked off his career playing CS 1.6 but only made a name for himself years later when he joined c0ntact with the likes of Snappi, ottoNd, and more. The player proved himself on the competitive stage, and just a year later, in January 2021, earned a spot with the big boys in Finnish team ENCE.

Since joining ENCE, Spinx has played a key role in the team, helping his squad in the FACEIT Pro League in January, and most recently Snow Sweet Snow in February.

Spinx, if he continues to improve under the ENCE banner and hones his skills with a rifle, will surely be a name to look out for in the months and years to come.

Here’s Spinx’s full list of video, mouse, crosshair, and viewmodel settings.

Esports mistaken for terrorist group after 2016 CS:GO prize money blunder




Reflecting on the ten-year anniversary of its inception, has been sharing some fond memories and stories with fans from its journey in esports. But one story involving a suspect bank transfer from Counter-Strike developer Valve makes for particularly hilarious reading, with being mistaken for a “borderline terrorist organisation”, according to its owner.

As part of the celebrations, recalls that following the MLG Major Championship: Columbus in 2016, Valve began releasing money to teams that was generated by the sale of team-branded weapon stickers within the game. While team owners across CS:GO esports would be awaiting the money with open arms, Valve’s wording on its payment to almost landed the organisation in hot water.

According to Anton Chereppenikov, the CEO and owner of ESforce, the group that owns, “the employees of the Lithuanian bank with which we cooperated with at the time were shocked and frightened” after Valve’s bank transfer was worded simply as “weapon sticker sales”.

Chereppenikov says the transfer was denied by the bank, who believed Virtus.Pro was some kind of terrorist group doing weapon deals with a private company.

However, there was a happy ending, as Chereppenikov says the team got in touch with the bank, explained the situation and what CS:GO actually was, and its weapon sticker money was paid out.

While esports has become more widely recognised and talked about in the mainstream in recent years, a lack of knowledge around the industry  in 2016 almost saw finding itself the top of INTERPOL’s most wanted list, rather than the CS:GO world rankings.

Reported: Bilibili obtains exclusive Overwatch League broadcast rights in China




Bilibili Esports has reportedly signed an exclusive Chinese broadcast deal with Activision Blizzard for the Overwatch League (OWL).

Per reports from The Esports Observer and Pandaily, Bilibili confirmed that it was granted exclusive broadcasting distribution rights in China for OWL, which includes further development of commercial interests and promotional support.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

In April 2020, it was reported that Bilibili replaced Banana Culture as the league’s Chinese production partner. The streaming site has since secured the hosting rights of OWL Overwatch Contenders and Overwatch Open Division tournaments in China.

Bilibili, also called ‘B Site’ in China, was launched in 2010 as a video sharing site that focuses on gaming, comics, and animation.

In 2018, the company cemented its position in esports by purchasing its own Overwatch League team, Hangzhou Spark. Being a franchise partner of Activision Blizzard certainly didn’t hurt Bilibili’s chances of obtaining the broadcasting rights it wanted.

Bilibili also obtained exclusive broadcasting rights to all major League of Legends global events last year. The three-year deal began in 2020 and runs through the 2023 League of Legends Mid-Season Invitational.

The fourth season of Overwatch’s franchised league began on April 16th. This year, competitors are divided into two groups based on location. The East division consists of eight teams competing in China and South Korea, namely the Chengdu Hunters, Guangzhou Charge, Hangzhou Spark, Los Angeles Valiant, New York Excelsior, Philadelphia Fusion, Shanghai Dragons, and Seoul Dynasty.

Esports Insider says: China is home to the largest gaming market in the world. Companies like Activision Blizzard and Riot Games know that tapping into the country’s audience is critical for global success, especially when events are hosted in the region. If this report is true, Bilibili’s position as China’s answer to Twitch continues to strengthen.

PSG Talon takes the W at the PCS 2021 Spring Split playoffs




LoL Teh “GravityWillFall” Wi-Liam

After topping the group stages and winning the grand finals in stunning fashion, PSG Talon will represent Southeast Asia in the coming MSI 2021.

PSG Talon secures their place in the upcoming Mid-Season Invitational 2021 by ploughing through the competition in the PCS 2021 Spring Split playoffs and taking the entire tournament by storm. To add salt to their opponents’ wounds: PSG Talon lost only a single game throughout their time in both the group stages and playoffs.

In only their second game in the playoff stage, PSG Talon faced off against Beyond Gaming, knocking them down to the lower bracket to go up against Machi Esports. After a thrilling best-of-five series, Beyond Gaming got a second chance to face off against PSG Talon once more but unfortunately, did not take their chances and lost in another three-nil sweep.

PSG Talon v Beyond Gaming – Part One

The only game that PSG Talon ever lost in the group stages was against Beyond Gaming so they went into the winner bracket final with a slim chance of being able to take a game or two off of PSG Talon. Unfortunately, that wasn’t the case as PSG Talon came out swinging in all three games, showing us why they deserved to be in the finals.

In all three games, PSG Talon was able to stifle Beyond Gaming’s strategies with ease, making it even harder for them to execute their game plan. PSG Talon also showed their flexibility by picking 14 different champions in those three games with Leona being the sole exception as she was picked in the first two games.

PSG Talon v Beyond Gaming – Part Two

Having already beaten Beyond Gaming once in a best-of-five series, PSG Talon had to do it all over again, this time in the grand finals. While Beyond Gaming did manage to overcome Machi Esports to make it into the grand finals, they still had a very steep mountain to climb.

In the grand finals, PSG Talon picked both Gnar and Kai’Sa three times, which goes to show how potent these picks are in the current meta. We also highlighted both champions as some of the most played during this patch. They also chose Volibear and Leona two times each. Beyond Gaming, on the other hand, went with Tristana and Alistar in all three games as well as Hecarim and Jayce for two.

While all three games went past 30 minutes, it didn’t feel like PSG Talon were seriously challenged as they looked quite at ease playing against Beyond Gaming once more. They showed real composure, technical ability, as well as a keen awareness of what’s going on and being able to counteract that.

Mid-Season Invitational 2021

With their slot already confirmed, PSG Talon will be in Group B of the upcoming MSI 2021, alongside MAD Lions (LEC Spring 2021 winners), İstanbul Wildcats (TCL Winter 2021), and paiN Gaming (CBLOL 2021).


Can PSG Talon go all the way this year?

Most definitely

While Blacklist dance, Cignal struggle




Mobile Legends Jarrad “Belandrial” Adams

While Week 3 of MPL – PH Season 7 ended in the best way for some, others faced an upward struggle moving forward.

After an elongated break due to an extension of the Enhanced Community Quarantine, Mobile Legends Professional League – Philippines Season 7 returned to action over the weekend for Week 3. For Cignal Ultra, the weekend would see four straight series, as the team finally got a chance to show their skills, while on the other side of things, Blacklist International were fighting to remain unbeaten with their fantastic new roster. In between those stories are also a multitude of developing ones, as teams battled through to the midway point in the regular season journey.

Cignal Ultra’s brilliance versus Bren Esports

Having not played for the opening two weeks, Cignal’s first foray into MPL – PH Season 7 hit them hard, as they fought through four opponents over the Week 3 action. Cignal were, unfortunately, unable to take a single series win out of Week 3, but they did show some signs of being an unstoppable team. Going up against Season 6 champions, Bren Esports, Cignal pulled off one of the biggest turnarounds we’ve seen in game 2 – shaking the nerves of the already shaky Bren. Although ultimately losing the series, and all series this weekend, Cignal can look to a few shining moments to move forward with.

Work Auster Force succumb to Blacklist International

After losing their first series in MPL – PH Season 7, Work Auster were a Force to look out for this weekend. With caster Leo moving into a technical coach role for the team, we were ready to see what they could do – and they delivered in a big way. Destroying both Onic PH and Cignal seemed simple for the team, but their final hurdle for Week 3 were the titans of Season 7 so far – Blacklist International. Although eventually losing the series 1-2, having their streak broken, Work Auster showed that they are going to be one of the biggest teams to watch moving into a massive Week 4.

Blacklist International’s dance of the undefeated

What more is there to say about Blacklist International’s MPL – PH Season 7 performance that has not already been said multiple times, especially when they remain undefeated – except to take a look at their winning moment against Work Auster Force and see just what a great time the team is having.

Pillow fights, praise and a synchronised dance around their Bootcamp table were the scenes as the team claimed yet another victory – and who can really blame them when they seem like an unstoppable juggernaut of MLBB power right now.

Aura PH, Nexplay Esports and the rest

Currently leading the Group A standings, Aura PH have almost been overlooked in their opening three weeks of MPL – PH Season 7 action. Having only lost to Blacklist so far, Aura have flown by under the radar to become another team to look out for in the coming weeks. With wins over both Onic PH and Omega in Week 3, the team have a huge Week 4 ahead of them.
Nexplay Esports begun the season on such a high, destroying Bren Esports in Week 1, but have fallen a long way since, with a loss streak. However, a big win over the Diggie-strat Cignal saw the team finally pull themselves up and look toward a single series next week in which to excel.
While Bren Esports scrapped a victory out of the weekend, landing their second in the season, we have to ask if it will be enough moving into Week 4 soon as they still seem to have many gaps being exploited. Across the rest of the board there are no really big surprises currently, with the table showing a fairly tight pack in the middle to lower portion – while some teams cruise out ahead.

As Week 4 of the MPL – PH Season 7 approaches, we wait with bated breath to see what new stories might unfold. We will have further news on the matches coming in Week 4 later this week, so check back if you want to remain up to date on all the MLBB news, especially dealing with MPL – PH Season 7.


Can Cignal Ultra pull themselves back in Week 4?
