Oliver ‘DickStacy’ Tierney has added his name to the list of people that are jokingly saying they want to play as a stand-in for Cloud9 at the FACEIT London Major in September, and he’s put forward the best sales pitch we’ve seen so far.

DickStacy decided to jump on the bandwagon of announcing a desire to play for Cloud9 after Mohamad ‘m0E’ Assad surprised the community on July 15, saying he would donate all of his sticker and prize money if he got the opportunity.

m0E’s announcement immediately turned into something of a meme, with numerous community members copying it and using it on their timelines with some slight changes.

However, DickStacy’s is the best one yet thanks to his unique selling point. The Australian star implores Cloud9 to “give the people what they want… DICK stickers”!

Teams and players get a cut of any revenue that Valve makes from their respective sticker sales at a Major, and you can almost guarantee that DickStacy’s stickers would sell like hot cakes!

DickStacy originally made headlines at IEM Sydney with his hilarious pre-game interview with Tres ‘stunna’ Saranthus when he said that his team was feeling “thick and pumped” before promising to go in “nice and hard” against SK Gaming.

Naturally, a meme was born immediately after the interview and DickStacy has been a community favorite ever since.

The Australian star currently competes for Grayhound Gaming but, due to their elimination in the early online stages of the Major qualification process, there is a possibility that he would still be deemed eligible to play for another team at the Major.

How Tabsen rebuilt German Counter-Strike

German Counter-Strike was a marvel to see in the days of 1.6, and it’s been a long time since the scene had much acclaim. But Johannes ‘tabseN’ Wodarz has slowly been building up the country’s prominence in the esport alongside the rest of the BIG lineup.

Hailing from pre-Source era LANs, tabseN was there when the Germans were a force to be reckoned with, alongside the neighboring French teams of the time. But that pales in comparison to modern CS:GO, where a German player has yet to even grace a grand finals for a Major.

Looking to right that wrong, tabseN would leave NRG Esports in 2017 to create Berlin International Gaming (BIG). He linked up with Fatih ‘gob b’ Dayik and Nikola ‘LEGIJA’ Ninic to take Germany back to its CS glory days.

The early road was rocky, to say the least. Roster changes and injuries marred the first couple years.

This made it hard for tabseN and co. to put together any meaningful results, with only minor success or deep bracket runs that would fizzle out before reaching the finals. TabseN didn’t win a single championship in 2019, that was his first dry year since 2012.

Then the online era of 2020 rolled around, where he was now the prominent IGL and the team had added Florian ‘syrsoN’ Rische and Nils ‘k1to’ Gruhne to the lineup.

Like classic German engineering, he would create a team that could withstand major obstacles and persist pressure. This is the story of how tabseN rebuilt German Counter-Strike.
