Vitality take down BIG to set up clash against Astralis in DH Open Fall

Avatar

Published

The match between the fourth and seventh-best teams in the world did not provide as much excitement as was expected thanks to strong performances from all five Vitality members, with the Frenchmen securing a confident 2-0 win over BIG.

Vitality continued their winning streak on Dust2, now reaching five consecutive map wins, and shrugged off BIG on Inferno after a near-perfect start to the offensive side to claim the series. BIG will have a chance to redeem themselves in the lower bracket of DreamHack Open Fall, where they will face the winner of HeroicSprout, while Vitality go on to face Astralis for a grand final spot on Friday, and could prove to be a difficult challenge for the team currently ranked #1.

ZywOo had another stellar series and currently boasts a 1.46 event rating

With both teams having strong records on Dust2, 82% win rate for BIG and 73% for Vitality, the initial map was a toss-up on paper. After picking it, the German side did start 3-0 up on it as Terrorists, but Cédric “⁠RpK⁠” Guipouy set up his team for a good CT half with an opening double in the first rifle round. Vitality brought out the double AWP on Mathieu “⁠ZywOo⁠” Herbaut and Richard “⁠shox⁠” Papillon, and went up 7-4 before Nils “⁠k1to⁠” Gruhne‘s 4K with the Deagle allowed BIG to recover.

From an 8-7 half, Johannes “⁠tabseN⁠” Wodarz‘s team equalized things with a pistol win, but lost the following force to Vitality‘s B push. The French team then took the reins of the match, reaching 14 rounds after RpK‘s eco ace, and closed out the map 16-11.

ZywOo‘s pistol quad-kill foreshadowed a great map from the wunderkind on Inferno, as he was sitting on a 16K-1D scoreline with Vitality 9-2 ahead as Terrorists. BIG stopped the bleeding there, locking down an A play to start their comeback to a 9-6 half scoreline.

That good work was canceled out by Vitality in the second half, as Dan “⁠apEX⁠” Madesclaire‘s men looked comfortable marching towards match point, but were stopped at a bit earlier, at 14, thanks to BIG‘s eco victory and a 3v5 turnaround (14-9). The Germans managed to reach 11 rounds before Vitality tied it all up, with a shoxRpK B lockdown and ZywOo‘s double kill that made it 16-11.

Allay Their Fears WoW: How to Complete the Quest

The Allay Their Fears WoW quest can be completed in a few simple steps. First, the quest can be started once players reach the Garden of Respite. The enemies in this area are around level 60, so make sure you’re prepared for the fight.

Once at the Garden of Respite, the quest will tell players that a few of the wyrms and cloudfeathers have frenzied. The game will then prompt you to equip Korinna’s Allaying Crook. Once players have grabbed the weapon, a charge meter will appear on the bottom of the screen. Players must then fill that meter by killing wyrms and cloudfeathers scattered around the area with the Allayin Crook.

After players have killed enough wyrms and cloudfeathers to charge the bar, the next step is to complete a ritual which will release the souls of these animals. Players must head to the south of the garden. There is a makeshift alter hidden behind large flowers where the ritual must be performed. Once there, the player can hover over Karinna’s Allaying Crook. By clicking the weapon, souls will be released from the weapon and appear on the pillar. Vesiphone will thank the player, and they will have completed the quest.

The Rock Expresses Interest in Fortnite Skin Modeled on Him

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson may be in the process of having a Fortnite skin modeled after him.

ComicBook.com journalist Brandon Davis tweeted a photo of a float modeled after Johnson on Thursday, saying the cartoonish depiction of the float made him look like a character in Fortnite. Johnson himself replied to the tweet.

“Way ahead of you, BD” he wrote, followed by a winking emoji. “Great minds.” He signed off with an emoji of a glass of liquor.

There’s been no official word from Epic Games on the possibility of a crossover skin, but Johnson’s ubiquity in pop culture would make him a natural fit for the game.

Doublelift Retires: A Tale of Glory, Downfall, and Legacy

Doublelift Retires: A Tale of Glory, Downfall, and Legacy | Courtesy of Riot Games

The best AD Carry in North America. Trash talker. Family tragedy. Back-to-back champion. Controversy. The man needs no introduction, Yiliang “Doublelift” Peng announced his retirement on Nov. 25 in a long Twitter post reflecting back on his career, journey, history, and personal transformation. After nine eventful years of professional League of Legends career, Doublelift has decided to end his career at Team SoloMid.

Starting off his career in 2011, he bounced around teams a couple of times – and even played as a support at one point – before settling with Counter Logic Gaming (CLG). When he got back from DreamHack Summer 2011, Doublelift was kicked out of his house by his parents. After posting on LoL subreddit, eSports pundit Travis Gafford offered him a place to stay until he transitioned to gaming house. In CLG, it was George “HotshotGG” Georgallidis who helped the native Californian be known in the League of Legends professional scene. Despite the rocky journey, Doublelift called CLG home and brought a trophy to the team for NA LCS Summer 2015 until his departure to TSM. It was CLG’s first-ever LCS playoff title. It was also in CLG on July 4, 2015, that Doublelift became the first player in NA LCS to reach 500 kills. Doublelift started to be correlated with toxicity. When leaving CLG, midlaner Austin “LiNk” Shin openly talked about his difficulty working with Doublelift due to his toxicity and aggressive criticism towards his teammates. The latter eventually apologized publicly and pointed at the lack of leadership in the team.

Moving to TSM was a big moment for Doublelift. His announcement video in 2015 has been viewed by almost 2.8 million people on YouTube (as a comparison, his second comeback to TSM was only viewed by slightly more than 845,000 viewers and his TL move’s video announcement was seen by about 422,000 viewers). During Doublelift’s two-year tenure with TSM, he managed to win NA LCS Summer Splits in both 2016 and 2017. However, his international appearances never actually came to fruition, consistently falling at Groups stage. Doublelift was impacted when TSM’s management restructured the team in favor of G2 Esports’ Jesper “Zven” Svenningsen and Alfonso “Mithy” Aguirre Rodríguez. Team Liquid quickly snagged Doublelift.

It’s during his time in Team Liquid that he showed his dominance for two years (LCS all splits in 2018 and 2019) by winning four consecutive titles, or as the community like to say back-to-back-to-back-to-back champion. Prior to his victory at the NA LCS 2018 Spring Split final, Doublelift experienced a family tragedy. It was arguably the most shocking news to the League of Legends community. Doublelift’s brother had attacked their parents in a knife assault, resulting in the death of their mother and a non-fatal injuries to his father. When he finally opened up on his possible absence during the finals, he said, “No, I’ve never considered [not playing] for a moment… And I think as my fans get to know me better, you know, they’ll realize that this is my life and without competition and without my fans, I would just be a normal person. And I don’t want to be a normal person. So, of course, I’m just gonna – nothing’s gonna stop me. Yeah, nothing.” With dedication, strength, and courage, he went on to win the title.

In the same year, Team Liquid was qualified for worlds before falling short in the Groups stage. Team Liquid and Doublelift finished second after G2 Esports in Mid-Season Invitational 2019. The trophy is Doublelift’s best international award in his career. After having a rough start as a team and motivation issue in Spring Split 2020, Doublelift left TL and returned to TSM to climb back to the top by winning LCS Summer 2020, granting TSM the first seed coming from NA for Worlds Championship. It was rather a disappointing Worlds result with the infamous 0-6 score in the Groups stage. Many people were still discussing SwordArt/Doublelift synergy before the latter announced his retirement.

In his long LCS career, he has eight LCS titles, eight Worlds appearances, two MSI appearances, 486 LCS games, 2,098 LCS kills, and a win-rate of 63.0%. Doublelift has 10 pentakills throughout his career, with four of them in LCS, making him have the most pentakills all-time in the LCS. His 156,102 CS and 431 gold/minute are third all-time records in LCS.

He may be the guy the community loves to hate but Doublelift, whose signature quote is “everyone else is trash,” is by far the most decorated player in LCS history.

Native Fortnite Locations: How to Complete the Challenge

Native Fortnite locations are the focus of one of the fourth week XP Extravaganza challenges offering players last-minute opportunities to earn tons of XP and level up their Battle Pass.

Here’s how to complete the harvest buses and RVs in native Fortnite locations challenge.

Native locations in Fortnite are areas that have been brought over to the Chapter 2 map from the original Chapter 1 battle island.

Technically speaking, Doom’s Domain could count since it’s Pleasant Park with some minor tweaks, but to be safe you should stick to these other locations.

Here are the current Fortnite native locations on the Chapter 2 Season 4 map.

Your best bet would be to visit Retail Row, Risky Reels or Weeping Woods in Team Rumble, with the drive-in movie setting as the prime location. There are more RVs and busses in these locations than there are in Salty Springs, which means you’ll almost certainly be able to complete this challenge on your first try.

Simply destroy one bus or RV with your harvesting tool and just like that, 20,000 season XP is in the bag.

With there being just four days left to complete last-minute challenges before the Galactus season-ending event on Dec. 1, feel free to check out our guides on where to boogie before oblivion and how to deliver a semi-truck to Stark Industries.
