Team Kaliber has booked a place in the CWL Pro League Stage 2 grand finals with a win over Rise Nation.

The back-to-back champions of the last two events will have to fight from the lower bracket if they’re to claim a third consecutive title.

Team Kaliber is also looking for their third championship of the season, although for them it’s been longer in the making. With a top two finish locked in, this is already the organization’s best result since it won the first two major events of the season.

In this winner bracket final it was Rise Nation that had the hot hand in the first map, opening up a sizeable lead on London Docks Hardpoint. Team Kaliber made things closer towards the end, but Rise Nation held them at bay fairly comfortably to take the win.

Up next was Valkyrie Search and Destroy, the closest map of the series as neither team was able to put it away until the very last round, when Team Kaliber came through for a 6-5 win, tying up the series at 1-1.

That proved all the opening that tK needed, putting in a convincing 3-1 Ardennes Forest CTF to claim the series lead before dominating Gibraltar Hardpoint 250-102 to send Rise Nation to the lower bracket.

This isn’t the first time Rise has found themselves in this position, however, with their CWL Seattle win coming off of an epic lower bracket run. This time, they’ll only need to win one extra series to return to the grand finals.

That series will be against Red Reserve, who Rise have already beaten in this tournament. Whoever wins will have to take down Team Kaliber in back-to-back series in order to win the trophy.

Team Kaliber 3-1 Rise Nation

HP London Docks 209-250

SND Valkyrie 6-5

CTF Ardennes Forest 3-1

HP Gibraltar 250-102

Dr Disrespect rants to himself for 10 mins after accidentally muting mic

Streaming superstar Dr Disrespect accidentally muted his microphone just as he began a legendary-looking rant about Call of Duty: Warzone, and may inadvertently have created a new trend in streaming at the same time.

Doc is undoubtedly one of the biggest personalities out there on the internet, but like anyone else, he can still fall victim to the treacherous mindset of getting tilted. 

Like all professionals, he usually does a good job of keeping the speed, violence, and momentum directed at opponents. But during a recent stream, he experienced one Warzone death due to flashbangs too many and took it out on his desk instead.

With a slam that would make fellow streaming star, xQc, proud, the Two-Time let his desk have it just as he was entering into what seemed like quite the heated exposition on the role of flashes grenades in Warzone.

The only problem was that his smack muted the microphone and he didn’t realize it, leading to what may have been the best mime impression on Twitch for the next 10-plus minutes.

It genuinely seems like the 2019 Streamer of the Year had no idea he was basically just talking to himself, as you can even see him going into bits and continuing to rant before he unmutes. It seemed to work out fine though, as he made a pretty penny in donations from viewers telling him they couldn’t hear.

Was it really a mistake, or a bold new strategy in streaming?

“Well, that’s what happens when you slam sh*t around, you know?” Doc reflected. “I think I got like, $100 bucks from people telling me I’m muted. Hey Alex, next time mute me for like two hours, yeah.”

If Dr Disrespect hasn’t chosen a Halloween costume for this year, maybe going trick-or-treating as a mime might be his best option at this point.

Speaking of Halloween, the good doctor’s annual Doctober costume contest is nearing its conclusion as hundreds of fans have submitted their best cosplays, hoping for a chance to be selected among the best. The winners are due to be announced in the upcoming few days, but you can check out some of the best costume submissions so far here.
