Popular Twitch streamer Jack ‘CouRage’ Dunlop sent a light-hearted jab at esports org Team SoloMid, particularly their Fortnite team, mocking their lack of recent success.
Formerly a full time caster with MLG for the Call of Duty World League, CouRage is well versed in the world of esports, and his comedy streak as a commentator has easily transitioned to streaming too.
In the past, the fan favorite caster-turned-streamer has mocked teams like eUnited and their Fortnite roster, after he was eliminated by them in a game, responding with “I have more Fortnite earnings than your Fortnite team.”
TSM, one of the best known esports organizations with a strong presence in Fortnite, field players like Ali ‘Myth’ Kabbani, Daequan ‘Daequan’ Loco and Darryle ‘Hamlinz’ Hamlin, to name a few.
However, the team has had limited success in tournament scenarios recently, with the TSM duo of Myth and Karman ‘Kaysid’ Sidhu only managing 30th place at the WSOE 3 Fortnite tournament.
Watching the final player win a Fortnite match, named ‘TSM_Herberth’, with an RPG elimination, CouRage jokingly casted the moment, saying “The best thing competitive TSM have done, in months!”
The comment sent his teammates into hysterics, particularly FaZe Clan’s Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney, who, conversely to TSM’s fortunes, is the winningest Fortnite player, in terms of prize money, ever.
CouRage himself has tried his hand at competitive Fortnite, and is certainly a competent high level player, but is more intent on doing more casting at major tournaments than competing in them.
Although, since his departure from OpTic Gaming, there’s nothing stopping him from signing for an organization to compete under, to put his money where his mouth is up against the TSM pros.
