Warzone player eliminates TimTheTatman, NickMERCS in excellent play

Published

on

During a recent game of Warzone, streamers TimTheTatman and NickMERCS found out the hard way that things aren’t always as they seem.

The pair had just entered a match and were preparing to score some early supplies with assistance from a loadout drop. They spotted a chopper overhead that they believed was friendly and chose to ignore it while they secured their loot.

When the supply drop hit the ground, Tim invited the chopper to come down and score themselves some loot, but as they would soon find out, the pilot had other plans. The chopper was sent straight into a nearby structure, instantly downing Nick while a player snuck up behind Tim and eliminated their team with one swift attack.

Shocked by what happened, the streamers watched back the replay to see that the player had abandoned his chopper at the last second to get in position behind Tim and perform the perfect melee execution.

While this may not have been the first time someone pulled off a loadout kill, this particular player was able to do it flawlessly without giving the pair of streamers a chance to react.

Sources: Stockholm still a priority for 2021 CS:GO Major

Published

on

The organisers of PGL Major Stockholm remain committed to hosting this year’s Counter-Strike Major in Stockholm, HLTV.org understands. Concerns have been raised about Stockholm’s ability to stage the event after Valve announced that it is considering alternative European locations for The International 10 following an impasse with Swedish authorities over holding the showpiece Dota 2 competition in the Swedish capital later this summer.

The plans to hold the Counter-Strike Major in Stockholm in the fall have not been affected by this development as of yet, sources said. And bringing the event to the Swedish capital for the first time remains a priority for PGL, which has hosted several CS:GO events in the past, including the 2017 Major in Krakow.

Despite TI10 concerns, plans for PGL Major Stockholm are still on

Valve revealed on Monday evening that moving TI10 out of Stockholm is a strong possibility after the Swedish Sports Federation voted against accepting esports into the organisation. The game developer’s request to have the Dota 2 tournament reclassified as an elite sporting event was subsequently declined by the Swedish Minister of the Interior.

Without the official recognition from Swedish authorities, Valve explained, anyone seeking a visa to enter Sweden, “including players, talent, and staff”, will likely be denied due to the international travel restrictions put in place amid the coronavirus pandemic.

“We have started looking for possible alternatives elsewhere in Europe to host the event this year, in case the Swedish government is unable to accommodate The International – Dota 2 Championships as planned,” Valve said. The event is slated to take place at the Avicii Arena — the same venue that will host the CS:GO Major — from August 5-15, with a whopping $40 million prize pool on offer.

PGL Major Stockholm will take place from October 23 through November 7, with the playoffs being held in front of a live audience. It will mark the return of CS:GO Majors after a two-year gap caused by the emergence of the coronavirus pandemic, which forced Valve and ESL to cancel plans to hold a Major in the Brazilian city of Rio de Janeiro in 2020.

Counter-Strike fans have been eagerly awaiting the return of in-person events after over a year of mostly online action. IEM Cologne, scheduled for July 6-18, is expected to be the first top-tier CS:GO tournament to be held on LAN since the coronavirus pandemic started. It will be held in a studio environment with 24 teams in attendance and will have $1 million up for grabs.

The qualifying process for PGL Major Stockholm is in full swing in all six regions (Europe, CIS, North America, South America, Asia and Oceania). The 24 participants at the event will be determined by the Regional Major Rankings (RMR), with each region hosting at least two RMR events, including one on LAN, according to Valve.

PGL Major Stockholm will be the 16th Major in CS:GO history and the third to be held in Sweden following the 2013 and 2014 DreamHack Winter events in Jönköping. It will have $2 million on the line — a record prize pool for a Valve-sponsored CS:GO tournament.

How to earn gems for free in Brawl Stars?

Published

on

Gems are a currency in Brawl Stars used to buy the premium pass, boxes, pins, Brawlers when they are in the shop, additional coins to level up Brawlers, and skins.

Brawl Stars is not a pay-to-win game, but players will need to play for a long time to max a few Brawlers and optimize their performance in games. They must first earn trophies by playing them, then max out their level with coins, as well as earning at least one gadget and star power.

But these are necessary time periods to the subtleties of the game, improving before taking your chances in the Power League.

How to earn gems for free on Brawl Stars?

The most reliable way to earn free gems is to complete the battle pass of every season. Although the pass doesn’t offer enough gems to buy the premium version every time it is refreshed, you’ll earn enough gems by completing tiers to buy a premium pass every three seasons on average. Supercell might adjust this in the future, though.

For example, the season seven battle pas, Jurassic Splash, rewards 90 gems to the owners of the free pass. The premium version, however, doesn’t reward additional gems, contrary to many games which allow the players to buy the next battle passes with the currency rewarded so that they don’t have to buy every pass if they play enough.

The other main way of obtaining gems for free is believing in luck and earning some in random boxes. The odds of getting gems this way are slim outside of Mega Boxes, however.
