Tournament hosts ESL have been spicing up their IEM Beijing CS:GO tournament with a few hilarious and cheeky text updates throughout the event.

Intel Extreme Masters [IEM] Beijing is one of the biggest Counter-Strike: Global Offensive tournaments of the year, with eight teams fighting over a massive $250,000 prize pool and a spot at the new World Championship event in Katowice, Poland.

The matches are incredibly intense and tough competition rages throughout the tournament days, however, hosts ESL have been lightening the mood with some hilarious text updates on their streams.

No one really knows who the mastermind behind these jokes is, but they are absolutely hilarious. Some of the best updates come as digs at ENCE, with the news ticker popping up during the downtime just to roast the Finnish team.

Comments like “ENCE: *places 2nd at Major tournament* Also ENCE: let’s kick Aleksib lmao” and “Jks’ role is to click heads, ENCE’s is to lose rounds and mine is to write this text” have been popping up throughout, much to the delight of fans.

It’s not all about ENCE or roasting people, however, other silly updates such as “honestly no stats here just wanted to look at his mustache again lol” when the camera pans to Sean ‘Gratisfaction’ Kaiwai occasionally pop up and fans on social media are loving it.

As soon as they popped up on screen, images quickly found their way to Twitter and the Global Offensive subreddit, leaving fans in hysterics.

ESLIt is a very nice mustache.

Things even dipped into some controversy, with ESL calling for the Krieg to be nerfed during a match break, something that is currently a hot topic as many professional players have also made complaints about the gun.

ESLESL chime in on the Krieg debate.

The IEM Beijing action continues until November 10, with just four teams remaining in the playoff bracket.

Juggernaut vs Colossus: How Cloud9 shocked Complexity @ Blast Fall Showdown

The head-to-head between Complexity’s reformed Juggernaut and Cloud9’s Colossus was a matchup the CS:GO community were waiting to go down, and their clash at the BLAST Premier Fall 2020 Showdown didn’t disappoint.

The hype around HenryG’s C9 was just starting to take shape with matchday results. But many saw their match against a Complexity side who had already booked a trip to the Blast Global Finals in 2021 as the Colossus’ first real test.

Backed by IGL Benjamin ‘blameF’ Bremer, Kristian ‘k0nfig’ Wienecke, and latest addition Justin ‘jks’ Savage, the Juggernauts were seen as favorites against the new Cloud9 roster.

Complexity managed to take the first map off of impressive clutch moments and a more cohesive structure in navigating Cloud9’s Nuke pick. Something that is expected from a core lineup who’s been together for a year.

C9 didn’t start the series with a win, but they did show an aggressive T-side that got them up to 10-5 after the first half. But Juggernauts hit back even harder when it was their turn to attack, only giving up three rounds on their way to a 16-13 win.

The rest of the series saw the premier headlines shine: Özgür ‘woxic’ Eker’s AWP against his old team, IGL’s blameF and ‘Alex’ McMeekin masterminding plays, and star players Patrick ‘es3tag’ Hansen versus jks.

The matchup resulted in a shocking upset win for C9, but the duel formed a new narrative around the two storied orgs who are embarking in their next eras.
