Drama Alert’s Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem is no stranger to esports, as evidenced by his past tournaments – but Fortnite pro TSM Myth is asking for a unique take on his competitive gaming events.

Team SoloMid’s Ali ‘Myth’ Kabbani raised a suggestion to KEEMSTAR on April 3, where he asked him to host a 5v5 CS:GO tournament – but not with esports athletes.

“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.

Myth’s suggestion soon gained ample traction across the community, with the likes of popular Twitch streamer NICKMERCS and FaZe content creator Teeqo responding in favor of the event.

“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.

DreamhackMany fans of Myth’s idea suggested Michael ‘Shroud’ Grzesiek to be part of the tournament, as the massively popular Twitch streamer was once a CS:GO pro for team Cloud9.

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.

KEEMSTAR, TwitterKEEMSTAR’s Friday Fortnite tournaments came to a halt, after Epic Games forbade any third-party tournaments from awarding over $10,000 in prize pools.

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.

The Operation Broken Fang update for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive has introduced a new way for players to track their stats in-game. Here’s how you can use it to improve your play.

Trying to find your in-game stats for CS:GO has been difficult in the past, to say the least. Players have had to rely on third-party sites, which can be either unsecure or inaccurate, or both at the same time.

However, Valve has finally listened to the community’s pleas. They have shipped a new, in-game stat tracking feature, that players can start using from Day 1 of the new Operation Broken Fang update.

While it doesn’t retroactively track players’ stats, it’s a new starting point for CS:GO.

What stats does the CS:GO in-game tracker follow?

The new CS:GO in-game stat tracker will track almost everything a player could want. It’ll count your matches played, your ADR, KD ratios, and more. Not only that, but it’ll break it down by map and gun too.

That’s not the only thing the in-game stat tracker can do. It also has a heat map for where you commonly find kills, deaths, and where you hold angles. It also breaks down where you hit players, so you can figure out what you need to do to fix your aim.

It is the one stop shop for all you need to know about your CS:GO game, and where you need to improve. Getting picked off at one position all the time? You can see it on the heatmap and change things up. Not sure if you’re better with the P2000 or the USP? You can find that out.

The CS:GO in-game stat tracker is a handy new tool.

How to view your CS:GO stats in-game

It’s super easy to check your CS:GO stats in-game. You can basically do it from the main menu. Here’s where you can find it.

  1. Open up CS:GO and go to your dashboard (main menu).
  2. Click on Operation Stats near the bottom of the dashboard.
  3. Select the parameters you want to track.
    1. All 5v5, All Wingman, etc.
    2. Past 14 days, Past 30 days, Past 90 days, All time
  4. Analyze your stats.

The stats are currently limited to Operation Broken Fang, but it’s likely the feature will stick around after the event wraps up.

It’s a huge upgrade for CS:GO players who are looking to improve their game. Now, you can definitively know if your teammates are holding you back or not.
