Things are going to get heated at the new 100 Thieves compound thanks to a high-stakes UNO tournament being hosted by the esports organization.

If you’re looking for something other than the Super Bowl, perhaps you’ll want to give a $500k UNO tourney a look.

It’s being put on by 100 Thieves and will feature most of the content creators from the org, along with former FaZe Clan pro Dennis ‘Cloak’ Lepore, who was heavily involved in rumors of him joining the team leading up to this point.

This event is being called “the most savage & cut-throat” UNO tournament you’ve ever seen, so it sounds like it’ll be worth checking out based on that alone.

Participants include Nadeshot, Valkyrae, Cloak, Maven, Yassuo, CouRageJD, Castro, and all four members of The Mob.

The early favorite has to be Froste from The Mob since he has roots in the UNO scene. During a Twitch Rivals tournament in January, he was able to secure the victory, making him the only player who has earned money from the hit card game in a competitive format.

The winner of this event will even get their hands on a championship belt, so it’s not like the players are just going to roll over and let him win that easily.

UNO is a very unpredictable game, with the ability to swing in the other direction in the blink of an eye, so every player will have a decent chance going in.

As an added incentive for fans, there will be $100k up for grab for the viewers thanks to Cash App. All they’ll need to enter to win the free money is their cashtag from the app.

Watch live video from 100Thieves on www.twitch.tv

For anyone wanting to tune in for the chance to win some money, they will be able to do so on both 100 Thieves’ Twitch and YouTube channels.

While both CouRage and Valkyrae now exclusively stream on YouTube, Nadeshot and The Mob still stream on the Amazon-owned platform, so it’s not surprising to see it split like this.

Make sure you tune into the action beginning at 4 PM PST / 7 PM EST and see who comes out on top.


Twitch streamer confronts DoorDash driver after console war trash talk

Console wars are nothing new to video game enthusiasts. From schoolyard debates to forum threads 500 pages deep, console loyalists have fought tooth and nail since the dawn of time. Now, the battleground has shifted with even DoorDash drivers getting in on the action against customers.

During a Twitch broadcast, streamer Jameskii was playing Minecraft while waiting for DoorDash to deliver his order. Suddenly, he received a text message on his phone.

“Hold on, is my drink here?” he wondered as he grabbed his mobile device. “Oh my God! Oh my God!”

As the streamer stared down at his phone, he could hardly contain his disbelief at the message he received from the driver.

“My food delivery guy just messaged me ‘Xbox is trash as f**k,” he laughed. “I’m not kidding. My f**king DoorDash just messaged me. It says, ‘Hello, DoorDash has arrived with your order’ and the next message is ‘Xbox is trash as f**k.’”

As it turns out, the driver actually tried to call the streamer, but when Jameskii didn’t pick up, he felt the need to trash talk Xbox.

Despite all this confusion and the out of context attack on Microsoft’s console, Jameskii wondered if he should call the driver back.

“Say yeah, PlayStation is better, woo!” his friend suggested as the streamer began to redial the number.

Eventually, someone on the other end picked up. “Alright, what did you say about Xbox?” Jameskii asked point-blank.

After a few moments of silence, the driver doubled down on his earlier comment and shouted, “F**k Xbox!”

The remark had the streamer in stitches and made him burst out laughing at the absurdity of the whole situation.

While console wars have a long history dating beyond even the 90s when Nintendo and Sega duked it out, it’s unlikely that the phenomenon ever reached a point where delivery drivers partake. It just goes to show that we’re living in a strange timeline.
