CS:GO game when speaking to his teammate’s brother.

There might be nothing more frustrating as a gamer than when you’re disconnected while playing online due to issues which are out of your control, such as internet connection or power.

LyndonFPS recently found the perfect opportunity to manufacture such frustration and havoc, hilariously ruining his teammate’s day during a CS:GO match when said teammate made the mistake of passing his microphone to his brother!

ESL/Helena KristianssonCS:GO is one of the most popular first person shooter esports and attracts millions of viewers each year.

Lyndon’s teammate could be heard going back and forth in the background at the start of the round and the streamer asked if he could speak with them, assuming it was his teammate’s wife: “Is that your wife or something? Let me talk to her.”

Upon finding out that it was actually the player’s brother, Lyndon quickly switched focus and recruited him for his master plan: “Hey what’s up man […] Can you please turn off your brother’s computer right now?”

The player’s brother, doing what any brother would do in such a situation, was instantly on board with the prank!

“Yeah,” he responded. “Turn off his computer? Okay, I got you fam.” 

A few seconds passed before Lyndon’s teammate could be heard exclaiming “OH!” followed immediately by the in-game feed displaying his teammate leaving the game, indicating that the devious brother had been successful.

Lyndon couldn’t believe he’d pulled it off after seeing the plan come to fruition, instantly bursting into laughter. 

“He’s got to be kidding,” he chuckled. “There’s no way that’s real!”

One can only imagine how Lyndon’s teammate would’ve reacted after seeing his computer turned off, but this hilarious highlight has already become one of Lyndon’s most viewed clips on Twitch – and with good reason.

Esports platform FACEIT is putting together a host of leagues for collegiate North American teams to vie for a $55,000 pot across League of Legends, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, and Valorant circuits.

The deadline for college players to sign up will be November 1, after which the TO will move ahead with a two-division system for CSGO & Valorant as well as regional qualifiers for League of Legends.

For the two tactical shooters, FACEIT will have a “Premier league, for top-tier competition, and Contenders league, for more casual competition.”

College players should note that the Premier and Contenders league will have a registration fee of $125 per team and $75 per team, respectively.

FACEIT will give aspiring esports players a chance to compete for cash in Valorant, LoL, and CSGO.

CSGO & Valorant leagues

From the $55,000 pot, CSGO will get a $30,000 prize pool, $5,000 of which will supply the Contenders league winnings. Meanwhile, FACEIT is putting $10,000 up for grabs in Valorant.

Both Premier and Contenders will have a 10-week Swiss format regular season that will lead into a single elimination playoff in Spring 2021.

Matches start on November 5-10 with the regular season’s 10th match scheduled for February 18-23, so student teams will have months to plan, prepare, and play out the full season.

The playoffs are planned to take place in March through April in the new year, with the Championship following after.

Riot Games
FACEIT will hold collegiate varsity events for Valorant and CSGO.

League of Legends

FACEIT will produce a three-phase LoL circuit that will eventually decide which team claims the biggest take of the $15,000 prize pool.

State-wide qualifiers, consisting of 16 teams each, are going to take place in the US and Canada. These will decide which teams make it into the Regional Stage. The top four teams that make it out of the Regionals will go on to the Finals for the biggest share of the $15,000 pot.

Every state qualifying tournament will require a $100 registration fee, 50% of which goes to the prize pool. FACEIT gave this example: “if the California tournament has 10 teams, there will be a $500 prize for that.”
