FaZe Clan hosted its very own invitational Among Us tournament — smartly dubbed the “Among Us In-vent-ational” — in October, with top content creators, streamers and more getting in on the action.

Among Us has become the game of choice for many top creators, with a party-game atmosphere and a great way to find out who your real friends are and test your own poker face.

In-Vent-Ational recap

Four separate lobbies filled to the brim with popular personalities battled it out during the event. Eventually, the best of the best moved on to the final showdown. This was where the most elite Among Us players showed their skills to the world. From extraordinary memory to map knowledge and of course, the ability to deceive everyone else, it all came in handy.

The likes of Ludwig, Classify, and Yassuo all made it through to the final round of action in the FaZe event. However, only one player could come away with the crown.

After a few maps of intense murder-sprees and subsequent investigations, it was up and coming Twitch streamer ‘Yetiapocalypse’ that closed out the victory. They soared to the top of the pack with a six-point lead over second place, well ahead of some of the bigger internet celebs in the lobby. The final placements can be found below.

FaZe Clan capitalized on the growing popularity of Among Us.

The tournament took place entirely on Monday, October 19, with the action having kicked off at 2pm PT (11am ET / 7pm BST). It lasted for roughly the full afternoon as each lobby battled it out for a few hours.

As each round went by, point totals were calculated before moving into the next map. This paved the way for unique strategies as players looked to knock out others at the top.

All of the individual participants themselves were streaming off of their own channels, and there was also an official broadcast that you can catch up on below.

AOC recruits Pokimane & Hasan for Among Us Twitch stream

U.S. politician Alexandria ‘AOC’ Ocasio-Cortez nearly broke Twitter when she asked, completely out of the blue, if anyone would want to play Among Us with her on Twitch – and none other than Pokimane and Hasan the Hun seem to be some of the chosen few to get a shot.

AOC serves as U.S. Representative for New York’s 14th congressional district, and while she also moonlights as a League of Legends player, she hasn’t yet tried her hand at the hit party game ‘Among Us.’

That all seems set to change though, based on the explosion of responses, replies, and offers to play she’s received on Twitter after asking if anyone would be interested in inviting her to join their lobby.

“Anyone want to play Among Us with me on Twitch to get out the vote?” AOC asked on Twitter. “(I’ve never played, but it looks like a lot of fun.)”

One of the more than 7,000 people to reply (at the time of writing) was Twitch’s own Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys, who said “it’d be an honor” to play with her, and even offered to help the representative set up her stream if she needed any help at all.

AOC told Poki she would be creating an account and getting some streaming equipment “today” (Oct. 19), so this first-ever “get out the vote” Among Us stream seems like it will be happening very soon.

Not one to be left out, fellow Twitch streamer Hasan ‘Hasanabi’ Piker claimed he was already setting up a lobby to get AOC some venting experience.

“Just DMd you. This sounds fun, let’s so it,” the New York politician replied to Hasan’s offer, making this impromptu Among Us event an already star-studded lineup.

Three people do not make a full lobby, though, but based on the insane amount of replies AOC got from users who seem very eager to play with her, they shouldn’t have any problems finding another seven willing participants.

Although she did indicate the stream would be going down as soon as possible when she gets set up, there’s still no official date from anyone about when the Among Us event will happen, but AOC did start her own Twitch channel shortly after talking with Poki and Hasan.
