Popular League of Legends Twitch streamer ‘Masayoshi’ has shown off his multitasking skills in style, managing to play games of LoL and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive at the same time, and win.

Playing two games at the same time is usually pretty tough. While it’s doable between card games like Hearthstone or Shadowverse, or even auto-battlers like Teamfight Tactics and Dota Underlords, it takes a lot of brainpower to get the gears ticking over.

However, a League of Legends streamer has shown that you can play both the MOBA title and an intense competitive game of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive at the same time, and win.

During a December 2 stream, Masayoshi queued up for a game of League while in the middle of a CS:GO game, expecting the queues to take a bit longer late on a Monday night. Instead, he was thrown right into a game, leaving the streamer torn between finishing his CS:GO game or swapping to League.

But, the streamer improvised a way to play both at the same time, and it panned out much better than he would have expected.

The streamer alt-tabbed between farming his lane and playing his CS:GO game, looking to move around the map in between waves. Once he died in CS:GO, he would put his attention into farming until he had to buy up and run out again.

He even managed to pick up first blood in his League game, flashing under tower for the enemy Thresh, while in the middle of a CS:GO round.

He played for about five minutes using the same strategy, and while he was failing to find much luck in CS:GO, his team had a big enough lead to walk away with the victory on Nuke 16-6.

With his sights then fully set on the League game, Masayoshi started to tear things up on the Rift too. He finished the game with a scoreline of 15/9/13 on Caitlyn, topping the damage charts by a significant margin.

While it’s unlikely the streamer will try and attempt the same thing again, it was a pretty good effort to try and play both games at once.

With both games requiring undivided attention, especially as an AD carry in the early game of League, the fact he even tried is impressive.

Unfortunately for Masayoshi, he didn’t get the rank up in CS:GO that he was looking for, but with those kinds of multitasking skills, it’ll only be a matter of time before he hits Global Elite.

A new report from a Finnish newspaper has suggested that VAC banned CSGO pro Elias ‘Jamppi⁠’ Olkkonen is considering a switch to Valorant as he steps down from ENCE. 

For a few year, Jamppi has been considered as one of Counter-Strike’s biggest rising stars. The 19-year-old was set to join the OG roster following their step into CS:GO, however, that move fell through.

The problem is, the Finnish star has a VAC ban to his name, so, he can’t play in CS:GO’s premier events – the Majors – even though a number of tournament organizers have allowed him to play in their own events.

With him and his family contesting the ban, Jamppi joined ENCE in the hopes that, at some point, he’d be able to play at Majors. However, there have been a few missteps in his argument, and he hasn’t come any closer to having the VAC ban taken away. That, alongside some roster turmoil with ENCE, has got him seemingly considering his options.

Jamppi was VAC banned in 2015 at the age of 14.

According to a report from the Finnish newspaper Ilta-Sanomat, the 19-year-old is apparently considering a switch to VALORANT as ENCE considers a number of roster moves.

It comes after a report from DBLTap’s Jarek ‘DeKay’ Lewis stated that ENCE were in discussions with Danish duo Marco ‘Snappi’ Pfeiffer and Thomas ‘TMB’ Bundsbæk about joining up with their active lineup alongside Aleksi ‘allu⁠’ Jalli, Joonas ‘doto⁠’ Forss, and Tuomas ‘SADDYX⁠’ Louhimaa.

That, ultimately, leaves Jamppi without a spot as the CS:GO 2021 season starts to ramp up in preparation for the PGL Stockholm Major in October.

Jamppi is considering a switch to VALORANT, according to reports.

If he decides to go to VALORANT, as IS reports, Jamppi would join a list of other CS:GO pros who have been banned from playing at a Major – including Joshua ‘steel’ Nissan and Braxton ‘Swag’ Pierce.

As for where he could go, well, there are a few teams who would certainly make space for the 19-year-old – especially if he could show as much promise in the Riot Games shooter as he does in CS:GO. So, we’ll just have to wait and see.
