Team SoloMid CEO Andy Dinh made some strong comments about OpTic Gaming during a public spat with longtime member Mike ‘Di3sel’ Carr. 

In today’s world of ultra-competitive esports, it’s not uncommon for rival organizations to butt heads in a public forum like social media.

What is uncommon, however, is when top and prominent members of said organizations decide to take things a step further and start taking personal shots at each other.

Such was the case when Dinh, known as Reginald on Twitter, and Di3sel became embroiled in a vicious public feud, stemming from an apparent incident between the two that had taken place at a party on June 10.

Di3sel was the first to strike, posting a GIF of a laughing man in an attempt to mock the TSM CEO, who replied to the tweet with a pretty shocking statement, calling the OpTic man a “has been,” and their organization a “dead brand.”

Despite being deleted shortly after posting, Dinh’s reply caught a lot of people’s attention, since it’s not everyday that the top member of any esports org calls OpTic a dead brand.

In an effort to provide damage control, he posted a followup tweet giving context to the incident that Di3sel had initially been referring to.

“Your friend was drunk and aggressive,” he wrote. “She spilled alcohol on us, but instead yelled at us. Most people who spill drinks on others generally apologize. Don’t think you should blindly defend your friend publicly and call me out to cause drama without giving context.”

“Brother, I don’t call people out ever,” Di3sel replied. “But if you’re going to flex on some shit, better believe. I know for a fact she wasn’t aggressive. She is passive af [as f*ck]You trying to flex some shit is some bullshit.”

The OpTic man did not stop there, continuing to take shots at the TSM CEO and giving him a warning that the Green Wall would be out for revenge.

“Pray we don’t get our shit back so you can keep mouthing off and flexing you ‘should, woulda, coulda,'” he tweeted.

What Di3sel was likely referring to in his warning was the possibility that OpTic Gaming will no longer be featuring in the North American League of Legends Championship Series, after recent reports surfaced that their org has been bought out by Immortals Gaming Club, who would take control of the LoL team and rebrand it. 

Dinh has not responded to the latest few tweets against him, and we will continue to bring you the latest on this feud if he does indeed reply.

However, some of these on-stream occurrences are downright strange, and many streamers have received the odd occasional gift from their viewers, including that time when Pokimane received a body pillow with a photo of herself on it.

While streamers having a public P.O. Box to receive gifts from fans is not uncommon, very often the things they receive are; and Twitch streamer TheStockGuy became the subject of a seriously weird present of sorts.

Twitch star “Pokimane” has received a slew of strange gifts from fans – one of which was a body pillow with her own face on it.

During an October 6 broadcast, TheStockGuy — who has gained notoriety on the platform for educating his viewers about finances and the stock market — revealed he’d been sent 126 lbs of Ocean Spray brand cranberry sauce.

“What is wrong with you people?” the streamer asked, seeming genuinely baffled by the situation. “Somebody sent me 126 lbs of cranberry sauce! What — where am I supposed to put this? Isn’t there some charity or something this money could go to?”

Although the he appeared to be utterly flummoxed by the viewers’ decision, he decided to make the best of the unexpected prank, stating that he would donate the sauce to his local food bank for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.

“I mean — you know what? Joke’s on you!” he continued. “I’m giving this to the local food shelter for thanksgiving, so they don’t have to purchase cranberry sauce! That’s right — we’re making something good out of this!”

It seems that TheStockGuy’s viewers found the scenario to be completely hilarious — and while it certainly is worth a hearty chuckle, it’s good to know that the broadcaster is putting his viewer’s practical joke to good use, in the end.
