Super Smash Bros. Ultimate to host Fire-themed Tournament on June 11

Published

on

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has revealed this week’s spirit event which will begin on Friday and be themed around the fire-based features of the game.

The tournament called “Burning !! Flame Uzumaku tournament” will run for three days from June 11 to 13 and give players to score themselves some spirits to add to their collection. Being themed around Fire, you’ll be restricted to using fighters and items boasting this attribute. Some of these include Mario, Bowser, Iceneroar, Roy, and items like Fire Flower, Superspicy Curry, and more.

As usual, the spirits you earn through winning matches are going to stick to the same theme. You can score yourself more stickers for each win you collect in the tournament.

With all signs pointing to Nintendo revealing some huge stuff next week at E3, Super Smash Bros. fans could have a whole lot more to look forward to coming and possibly a spirit event to match. Ultimate hosts these events each week with an entirely new theme. Most recently on June 4, the game held an event themed-around the hats in the game, which gave players the opportunity to score some headwear inspired spirits for their collection.

Make sure you keep your eyes peeled each week so you don’t miss a chance to get any of the spirits you may be after.

Quincy Crew won’t sign with other organizations for The International 10

Published

on

While preparing to compete at ESL Summer 2021 and boot camping for The International 10, Quincy Crew has decided to remain independent and will compete under its own banner on Dota 2’s biggest stage. 

This decision was made after the team competed together at the WePlay Esports AniMajor, finishing in a tie for fifth place and securing a direct invite to TI10. 

Since forming as a North American stack of players post-TI8 in 2018, QC has gone through many forms yet almost always operated with the same core of players and manager Jack “KBBQ” Chen. And what used to be a placeholder used to open doors for bigger sponsorships and contracts has now become “a team of people who believe in one another, ready to take on the world.”

“This isn’t the first time we’ve been in the position of an unsponsored team with a ticket to TI,”  KBBQ said. “In 2019, there were plenty of suitors looking for us to compete under their name and banner, and we happily took the best offer. Newbee treated us like family, and we couldn’t have asked for more. But this time, we won’t be going to TI as someone else.”

Unlike during the 2018-19 season when QC was signed by Forward Gaming and later by Newbee to compete at TI9, KBBQ and the team aren’t looking to play under a different banner this year. QC have been playing without an organizational sponsor since last March when the team was released by Chaos Esports Club and they’ve been playing with the same core players since signing Rodrigo “Lelis” Santos last June. 

For now, the team will be evaluating partnerships and deals while working to provide merchandise for the fans who want to support the QC brand. But their main goal is to remain true to their vision.

“We are once again in discussion with possible partners and sponsors, but the name Quincy Crew will be at TI10 in one way or another,” KBBQ said. “Some things are beyond any price.”

QC are staying in Ukraine right now to practice for the ESL Summer 2021 event, which will run from June 16 to 20. Once that’s done, the team will head home, take a small break, and meet back up for a TI10 boot camp in July. 

“To those who have supported us, stayed up to watch our games, and shared in our anguish, we may not know who all of you are, but are thankful regardless for each and every one of you,” KBBQ said. “Every encouraging message, every text, every flair or frog, and every tussle with the haters counts. We will repay you in Stockholm.”

QC’s first match at ESL Summer will be at 7am CT on June 17 against the winner of Team Liquid vs. Tundra Esports.

Huynh released from Gen.G’s VALORANT team, becomes free agent

Published

on

Danny Huynh is no longer contracted to Gen.G’s VALORANT team, the 26-year-old Canadian player announced today.

Huynh, a former CS:GO pro, was a part of the FRENCH CANADIANS roster that was picked up by Gen.G in May 2020 when the North American organization entered VALORANT’s professional scene. He helped the team win tournaments like the T1x Nerd Street Games Invitational, Pittsburgh Knights Tournament Series, and Pulse Invitational between May and July in the early stages of the competitive scene in North America. But the team couldn’t replicate the same results in the VCT events.

“As of today, I am officially released from Gen.G,” huynh said on Twitter. “I would like to thank them for everything that they have done for me. I am now a free agent LFT. I have T1 experience on duelist/sova/sage/op and I am comfortable on controller/sentinel.”

The 26-year-old was benched shortly after Gen.G earned a top-eight finish at the VCT Stage Two Challengers Two open qualifier in April, missing out on the chance to grab a spot in the main event. The organization brought in Nicholas “NaturE” Garrison, who was on Immortals’ bench, to replace huynh in May.

VALORANT teams from all over the world are making roster changes now before the VCT circuit kicks off again. There are some organizations, such as T1, that are still evaluating moves, so we could definitely see huynh get picked up by another team before the VCT Stage Three kicks off in July.

WoW: The Burning Crusade Classic Arena PvP season one begins today

Published

on

The first season of ranked Arena PvP for World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade Classic will start today

With it, Arena season one brings three arenas for players to battle in—The Ring of Trials in Nagrand, the Ruins of Lordaeron in Tirisfal Glades, and the Circle of Blood in the Blade’s Edge Mountains. The Ring of Trials and Circle of Blood have both been updated in the retail version of WoW, giving players the chance to battle in their original layouts once again.

To participate in Arena battles, players will have to assemble teams consisting of two, three, or five players. From there, they must speak to an Arena Battlemaster located in a major city. 

If players participate in and win enough games during a certain week, they’ll be eligible to earn Arena Points. Arena Points are awarded to players at the beginning of each weekly reset and are distributed based on how high the player and their team’s rankings are. Arena Points can be used to purchase endgame-quality gear that’s only accessible to high-ranked PvP players.

Additionally, for players who are in the upper echelon of the PvP community when season one comes to a close, special titles and rewards are also in order. Players who are ranked in the top 35 percent of players at the season’s close will earn the “Challenger” title, while players who are ranked in the top 10 percent will get the “Rival” title. If a player finishes in the top three percent, they’ll receive the “Duelist” title. 

But if a player finishes in the top 0.5 or top 0.1 percent of all Arena players this season, they’ll earn the “Gladiator” and “Infernal Gladiator” titles, respectively. Players who achieve the rank of “Infernal Gladiator” will also receive the exclusive Swift Nether Drake mount. 

It’s unclear how long the first season of PvP will last. But if we use the original release of The Burning Crusade as a relative example, season one lasted a little under five months during its original run in 2007.

Creating an international VALORANT all-star team from players who competed at VCT Masters 2 Reykjavík

Published

on

The VALORANT Champions Tour Masters Two Reykjavík tournament marked the first time the best teams from around the world competed against one another for an international title.

Sentinels walked away with the title, but fans also got to see superstar and charismatic players from other regions. Some fans started to wonder what would happen if they took some of the best players and created a hypothetical, unstoppable VALORANT all-star team. 

So that’s precisely what I did. 

My all-star team features one player from five different teams who stood out at Masters Two Reykjavík because of their skill and overall presence. Of course, some players performed better statistically, but my team’s success heavily relies on good vibes as much as raw talent. 

This team could easily hold the title as the best VALORANT team in the world and would be an absolute joy to watch. Here’s an all-star team created with players from Masters Two Reykjavík. 

Sentinels TenZ

Tyson “TenZ” Ngo should be an obvious pick for any VALORANT all-star team. He joined Sentinels just before the North American Masters One tournament in March and helped the team go undefeated. He was a crucial part of the team’s continued success that helped them qualify for Masters Two Reykjavík, where he still excelled against international opponents. 

TenZ led his team in kills in three of their four matches in the tournament and dropped 79 kills against Fnatic for good measure. He maintained an average of 23 kills per map and a 1.87 kill-death ratio, which was the highest of any player in the tournament. 

On top of his unmatched talent, TenZ is a joy to watch perform. His laid-back style and calm demeanor are refreshing. He’s the perfect duelist for a VALORANT all-star team. 

Fnatic Boaster

Fnatic finished in second place after losing to Sentinels in the Masters Two Reykjavík grand finals, but they still made an impressive run through the lower bracket. Fnatic’s in-game leader, Jake “Boaster” Howlett, was also one of the most entertaining players to watch both in and out of the game. 

Boaster and the Fnatic roster had elaborate celebrations each time they won a match—and the 26-year-old was always prepared each time the camera was on him. He helped his team almost take home the title and kept the team’s morale and vibes up throughout the event. 

The talented leader recently mentioned how powerful a Fnatic and Sentinels crossover would be, which aligns perfectly with TenZ as his duelist on this all-star team. Fans can argue that other in-game leaders would be a better pick for an all-star team, but none would be as fun to watch as Boaster. 

Team Liquid ScreaM

Team Liquid finished in fourth place in Iceland. But their designated headshot machine, Adil “ScreaM” Benrlitom, was still a force to be reckoned with. He ended the tournament with a 33.12 headshot percentage, which was the highest of any player during the event. 

ScreaM is a dominant player with a deep CS:GO background that’s easily transferred to VALORANT. He’s almost unstoppable with a rifle in his hands and is the perfect player to fill a duelist slot on an all-star team. 

He almost exclusively used Sage during Masters Two Reykjavík. But if anyone can successfully play as a battle Sage, it’s ScreaM. Enemies wouldn’t know what to do if they encountered ScreaM and TenZ pushing a site together, which sounds like any VALORANT player’s worst nightmare. 

X10 Esports Patiphan 

X10 Esports represented the SEA region at Masters Two Reykjavík and managed to eliminate Crazy Raccoon before being sent home by Fnatic. X10’s Patiphan Chaiwong attracted thousands of new fans from around the world, however. 

Patiphan used Jett, Viper, and Sage in Iceland and led his team in kills in two out of their three games. The young 17-year-old showed that he can hold his own against the best in the world and fans will likely see him again in international tournaments. 

But he also established that his vibe levels are off the chart and had one of the best walk-ins during the tournament. He’d perfectly mesh with Boaster and this duo would keep the all-star team’s morale high even in the direst circumstances. 

NUTURN Laika

The final spot on our VALORANT all-star team goes to Kim “Laika” Jong-min, the fantastic Sova player on NUTURN. NUTURN beat Sharks Esports and Version1 before losing to Sentinels and Fnatic, but they still showed just how powerful Korea can be in VALORANT

Laika was at the top of the leaderboard for his team in all of their matches except against Sharks Esports. He had an average combat score of 231.5 in Iceland and a 1.10 kill-death ratio. He’s also an excellent choice for a Sova player. 

Combining Laika’s ability to clutch when necessary with the explosive power of everyone else on the all-star team would be deadly.
