Luminosity Gaming’s AR Slayer Peirce ‘ CoD scrims to attend EDC 2019, but Team Envy’s Patrick ‘ACHES’ Price couldn’t believe his eyes after noticing that was the least of LG’s problems.

LG hasn’t had the best 2019 season so far, and with the CWL Pro League is in its eighth week of competition having gone 0-3 in their last group of matches.

In a tweet, Call of Duty legend ACHES pulled up the stats from LG’s loss against Reciprocity. While it seemed like he was going to be yet another person to take a dig at Gunless for going to EDC instead of scrimming, the numbers on the stat sheet quickly changed the narrative.

MLGLG has notable stars in their team, but the performances in the Pro League haven’t been up to snuff for the firepower they have.

ACHES’s tweet seemed reminiscent of all the CoD fans and figures who were trash talking Gunless for going to the weekend music festival, but his team’s performance in their last outing suggested there was a larger problem for the Canadian org

“Gunless showed up to Columbus today after being gone the whole weekend at EDC and didn’t even scrim today,” ACHES said. “Wow what an embaras……nvm.”

The statline seemed to show Gunless as well as teammate and former World Champion MVP Matthew ‘FormaL’ Piper as the only talking points among team.

Luminosity’s performance seemed to baffle people on the social platform too, with notable figures in the scene wondering what could be the root cause for the team’s lackluster performance.

“I don’t even know how this is possible,” eUnited’s Tristan “Spoof” Green said. “They gotta hate each other or something.”

How is LG’s season going?

Even though LG has some star power behind their rifles, the team has yet to consistently impress in the Pro League with a 5-10 overall record and having only won two maps in their last four games.

MLGWhile the team had a great showing in Fort Worth, their regular season hasn’t been going too smoothly.

While the team was able to put on an inspiring run at CWL Forth Worth to get the top honors in the event, they followed it up with a much more lackluster performance at the recent CWL London tournament.

LG can still turn their Pro League season around to end on a positive record with seven games left in their schedule, but it will be a very tall ask for them to make it into the Playoffs via a top-four in Division A. 

LG’s next match is against the lowly UYU on May 21 at 4:30 PM PT / 7:30 PM ET.

HusKerrs becomes first Warzone player to break $100K in earnings

Popular streamer Jordan ‘HusKerrs’ Thomas has officially cracked $100,000 in earnings from Call of Duty: Warzone tournaments, extending his lead and continuing to set the pace for the battle royale’s best.

An NRG content creator, HusKerrs has catapulted into the mainstream Twitch community’s collective consciousness in 2020 thanks to effortless domination in Warzone. Playing on PC, the streamer exudes consistency at the highest level of play and gets tilted as rarely as he shoots shakily.

With a straight shot that refuses to waver, HusKerrs capped off the last week of Warzone tournaments with a first-place finish in Vikkstar’s Warzone Showdown and a second-place at Twitch Rivals. The former tournament boasted a record-breaking $210,000 prize pool and the latter, a sturdy $100,000.

Following those tournaments, the star streamer has left the country for a vacation and taken to Twitter to update his checklist. First on that list, an esport milestone as the only player to hit $100,000 in Warzone earnings. And, second, a personal benchmark of hitting 100,000 Twitter followers.

 

Even if you disregarded every single Warzone tournament before his last two, HusKerrs would still be 15th-highest earner from the battle royale since its debut in March 2020.

That’s in major thanks to Vikkstar’s Warzone Showdown, as the NRG man and his duo, AverageJoeWo, carved off the largest chunk of that historic prize pool.

Netting $15,000 from the Showdown’s Grand Finals ties the most money individually earned since the Minnesota ROKRR’s tournament in early October. Already ahead of Aydan ‘Aydan’ Conrad, who sits at No. 2 in the earnings rankings with $64K, these recent performances extend the lead and earn HusKerrs a well-deserved vacation.

From handling business in the competitive Apex Legends circuit for Rogue to being the center of Warzone business, HusKerr’s gaming career is on an upward trajectory. Now, it appears that an entirely new horizon is opening up for the 24-year-old royale maestro.

Starting on October 30, he will be hosting, casting, and analyzing the next giant Warzone tournament: HusKerrs’ Howl.

The $300,000 tournament will feature 32 players, including top competitors like Aydan and Mason ‘Symfuhny’ Lanier, split into duos for a two-week, double-elimination format.
