“Okay, I know like the entire community is up in flames right now, but how lit would it be if KEEMSTAR put together a 5v5 CS:GO tournament with all your favorite content creators?” Myth Tweeted.

“Lit, I’m runnin’ it down mid with a P90,” NICKMERCS said of the idea, while Teeqo gave an enthusiastic “heart eyes” in reply.

While KEEMSTAR didn’t respond with any concrete details for the potential event, he made sure to retweet Myth’s Tweet on the subject, amping fans up for a possible tournament featuring the scene’s biggest content creators.
Commenters also suggested their favorite creators in the space for the tournament, tagging the likes of Twitch streamer and former CS:GO pro Michael ‘Shroud’ Grzesiek and Team Liquid Fortnite pro ‘Poach,’ among others.
While KEEMSTAR appeared to entertain the idea, it wouldn’t be the first esports tournament he’s held; in fact, KEEMSTAR’s ‘Friday Fortnite’ initiative was incredibly popular, before he took issue with Epic Games banning third-party tournaments from awarding prize pools greater than $10,000 in Summer 2018.
While Friday Fortnite may have come to a halt, KEEMSTAR hasn’t given up on tourneys altogether; he also acted as referee for MrBeast’s $200,000 YouTuber airsoft battle royale, which pitted 13 teams of three top YouTubers each against each other in a battle sponsored by Apex Legends.
KEEMSTAR even spoke on a potential ‘Minecraft Mondays’ survival event in a Tweet prior to Myth’s suggestion, jokingly shunning the idea in favor of a ‘Hunger Games’ tournament - although whether he meant a real-life rendition of the series or was merely referencing the website is still up in the air.
