G2 Esports CEO Carlos ‘Ocelote’ Rodriguez has roasted FaZe NICKMERCS after the CoD and Fortnite streamer claimed he gets more Twitch viewers than the entire G2 organization.

On February 11, NICKMERCS and Ali ‘SypherPk’ Hassan announced G2 pro player Sean ‘Coop’ Cooper as the third member of their Fortnite Championship Series (FNCS) trios squad. The squad took part in the first qualifier, finishing 39th in the NA East region.

During the stream, G2’s official Twitter account took a cheeky jab at NICKMERCS, tweeting one screengrab of Coop getting a win and another screengrab of NICKMERCS on the floor needing revival. It was captioned: “How @G2Coop plays Fortnite [vs] how @NICKMERCS plays Fortnite.”

NICKMERCS responded with a roast of his own. “I get more viewers than your entire org combined, don’t @ me cringe2,” he said.

While most CEO’s tend to keep a low profile, Ocelote is a big exemption from that rule. Given his history, it’s not exactly surprising he came out all guns blazing to defend his organization, as he launched a tirade against NICKMERCS.

“lmaooooo fragile Frederick ease up you degenerate,” one tweet said. “It is mandatory in faze clan’s 80/20 contracts to have a fragile ego,” said another.

Ocelote then listed off the viewing figures of players represented by G2 Esports, after boasting about top Spanish streamer Ibai Llanos ‘quadrupling’ NICKMERCS’ viewing figures “while watching marble races.”

Ocelote wasn’t the only esports executive to get involved. FaZe owner Alexander ‘Adapt’ Prynkiewicz backed his man NICKMERCS, as he tweeted: “LMAO TALK TO EM.”

After the extensive war of words between G2 and FaZe, fans will be glad to know that the two camps have since reached a truce. Ocelote later tweeted, “Just spoke with @NICKMERCS. We good.”

NICKMERCS then replied with a simple gif, bringing the end to a rather delicious piece of Twitter beef.

Kolcheff and his squad will look to finish in the NA East regional top 250 to qualify for the next round of the FNCS.


Froste wins Nadeshot Twitter bet to give 100 Thieves CEO hilarious tattoo

100 Thieves CEO Matthew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag made a bet with streamer ‘Froste’ on Twitter. Get 100,000 retweets, and he’d get one of the most ridiculous tattoos ever. Froste took up the challenge, and won in just over 90 minutes, rallying the gaming community like never before.

Retweet challenges for free merch, ludicrous stunts, and other big things have gone viral before. However, none have gone as viral, as fast, and for as drastic a consequence, like Froste’s hilarious tattoo bet with Nadeshot.

It started rather simply. Nadeshot shared a photo of his new tattoo with the caption of “another one down, a million more to go until this arm is filled up.”

Froste took that “million more” as a challenge. “How many retweets on a tweet for you to get ‘Sex is temporary, gaming is forever’ tatted on you?” he asked.

Nadeshot set the bar at 100,000, confident that Froste wouldn’t win the bet because he “don’t have that type of pull.” Oh, how wrong Nadeshot was.

As soon as Froste called the gamers to assemble, thousands of retweets started pouring in. It started off with other 100 Thieves content creators like Valkyrae. Then, all the big names got in on it.

Ninja, CouRage, DrLupo, Timthetatman ⁠— even Zedd got in with their retweets. Esports orgs like Cloud9, G2 Esports, and Ninjas in Pyjamas helped out Froste with the bet too, and the CDL and Raven Software even took up the cause.

As the retweets kept flooding in, Nadeshot got more nervous.

“It’s already at 10k? You’re lying. You’re lying. It ain’t at 10k already. You’re lying,” he said on stream while the challenge was going down.

“First of all, Ninjas in Pyjamas, I respect everything you’ve done in this space. Used to be a fan when I was younger, but why did you retweet that and why are you in my chat,” he added later on, singling out the Swedish org.

“This is my body forever, and it was Froste ⁠— I didn’t think Froste was ever capable of bringing the gaming community together.”

Once it hit the point of no return, Nadeshot resigned to the fact that the gaming community hated him. Well, not really, but kind of. “Why are you guys doing this, I thought you were my friends,” he said on Twitter, dejected.

Then, when the moment finally ticked over, he turned on Arms of an Angel and wept on stream.

Will Nadeshot follow with the bet? Yes, yes he will.

“Just so I have it on the record; I haven’t decided where I’m going to get the tattoo, but yes, I’m a man of my word and I’m going to get the tattoo,” he said on stream.

He even raised the stakes. With Froste getting 100,000 with ease, Nadeshot believes he can go bigger and get a million. The prize? Picking where he has to get the tattoo.

“If it gets a million retweets, the internet gets to pick where I put it on my body — wait, besides my face! Besides my face,” he said.

Now, the community is holding their breath for what will be one of the greatest moments of 2021. Let’s just hope 100 Thieve’ sponsors don’t pull out after the hilarious stunt.
