Australian CS:GO star Ollie ‘DickStacy’ Tierney has had his hilariously explicit personal sticker design for the IEM Katowice Major rejected by Valve – prompting him to need his mom to come up with a more PG idea. 

The Grayhound Gaming fan favorite recently qualified for the IEM Katowice Major with his squad after overcoming Vici Gaming in the Asian Minor event.

As one of the more popular pros, DickStacy stickers had been set to be one of the more in-demand designs on offer, with fans expecting him to implement some not safe for work features into his personal design. However, Valve has put their foot down and let him know that he won’t be able to try any funny business with his sticker.

ESL/Helena KRISTIANSSONThe Australian has cultivated a mass following in the past few years.

After submitting what he had planned for his sticker, the Australian pro received a response from the game’s creators. He tweeted a screenshot of their answer, with the caption: “You hate to see it my friends. I did send in the worst first. Was worth a shot. Going for a more clean artistic approach.”

A few hours later, the Grayhound Gaming star then shared that initial design with fans on Twitter, showing how he’d taken the D from DickStacy and turned it into a penis – just as some fans thought he would. 

However, he had to wrangle in his mom for an alternative design, after Valve had said no, that he also showed to fans via social media.

Unlike his first attempt, there has been no news from Tierney on whether or not he has been allowed to use the new, less explicit design.

Grayhound and DickStacy will begin the first leg of their Major run at the New Legends Stage starting on February 13. The team’s stickers are sure to be released sometime before then. 

The New Legends Stage runs until February 17 and you can keep up with all the action from the upcoming CS:GO major on our event hub.

Esports platform FACEIT is putting together a host of leagues for collegiate North American teams to vie for a $55,000 pot across League of Legends, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, and Valorant circuits.

The deadline for college players to sign up will be November 1, after which the TO will move ahead with a two-division system for CSGO & Valorant as well as regional qualifiers for League of Legends.

For the two tactical shooters, FACEIT will have a “Premier league, for top-tier competition, and Contenders league, for more casual competition.”

College players should note that the Premier and Contenders league will have a registration fee of $125 per team and $75 per team, respectively.

FACEIT will give aspiring esports players a chance to compete for cash in Valorant, LoL, and CSGO.

CSGO & Valorant leagues

From the $55,000 pot, CSGO will get a $30,000 prize pool, $5,000 of which will supply the Contenders league winnings. Meanwhile, FACEIT is putting $10,000 up for grabs in Valorant.

Both Premier and Contenders will have a 10-week Swiss format regular season that will lead into a single elimination playoff in Spring 2021.

Matches start on November 5-10 with the regular season’s 10th match scheduled for February 18-23, so student teams will have months to plan, prepare, and play out the full season.

The playoffs are planned to take place in March through April in the new year, with the Championship following after.

Riot Games
FACEIT will hold collegiate varsity events for Valorant and CSGO.

League of Legends

FACEIT will produce a three-phase LoL circuit that will eventually decide which team claims the biggest take of the $15,000 prize pool.

State-wide qualifiers, consisting of 16 teams each, are going to take place in the US and Canada. These will decide which teams make it into the Regional Stage. The top four teams that make it out of the Regionals will go on to the Finals for the biggest share of the $15,000 pot.

Every state qualifying tournament will require a $100 registration fee, 50% of which goes to the prize pool. FACEIT gave this example: “if the California tournament has 10 teams, there will be a $500 prize for that.”
