Denial Esports player debt set to be paid as organization looks to return

After a long saga for former Denial Esports members and staff, the end to a frustrating, unnerving ordeal may finally come to pass as new figures have seemingly taken the reigns to usher in a new chapter for the controversial organization.

Denial Esports was once a thriving club that fielded teams in many titles such as Counter-Strike, H1Z1, Rocket League, Super Smash Bros. Melee, and more, but all of the success was left marred by unpaid players and fees, consistent stonewalling by upper-management, and legal action against the org.

Now it looks like a new era may be coming to the once chastised team, as potential new owners look to have tied loose ends on December 18 and are preparing to take Denial Esports into a new age of prosperity.

CEO of MoneyMatches Zach Smith and the always positive team owner of the Anaheim Pirates Patrick ‘BlackBeardAP’ E. Smith Sr., shared numerous Twitter posts which strongly indicate the two have paired up to take on the Denial Esports banner.

Smith announced on Twitter the debt for Denial had been agreed upon and players were happy, while announcing that they “will issue in a new age of the org and it’s legacy. ”

After an apparent fallout from the Anaheim Pirates name, BlackbeardAP and his Halo team have left the SoCal branded org on December 16 and have since teased the entire roster will soon be under a new name.

Denial Esports had previously been world champions in Call of Duty, Rainbow 6, Gears of War, and are looking to once again find a footing in a new age.

100 Thieves’ Tommey reveals footage of man stealing his new gaming chair

Thomas ‘Tommey’ Trewren, ex-Call of Duty pro turned full time Warzone competitor for 100 Thieves, has had his brand new gaming chair stolen, after it was left outside the Airbnb at which he was staying. 

Tommey, who recently joined 100 Thieves as a member of their Warzone team, had a new gaming chair on the way from Mavix. The new brand of gaming chairs from X-Chairs have partnered with a number of streamers, including 100 Thieves content creator Valkyrae.

It seems Tommey was also getting a new Mavix chair just in time for Christmas, but an unknown thief stole the delivery after it was left outside, unsupervised.

On December 5, he shared CCTV footage of his chair being lifted from outside his accommodation. A pick-up truck can be seen pulling up, before a man gets out and walks up the drive way. He then casually picks up the box in which the chair is in and places it in his truck, before driving away.

“Well, there goes my new chair,” Tommey said. “I got sent the footage in the hope we’d be able to report it and find the man, but he’s well covered up. Merry Christmas, random man. I hope the chair brings you lots of joy.”

He went on to explain that the chair was left outside the Airbnb at which he was staying, and that the delivery company did not even attempt to hide it or place it in a more discreet location.

Unfortunately, the thief did a pretty good job of covering his tracks. Tommey also suspected that he was not the only victim. “His tailgate is removed and he has a chain in place,” he said. “If you look, he also has another box in the back of the truck. Which means he’s purposely driving around and taking multiple packages.”

Despite his best efforts, it doesn’t seem like Tommey is holding out too much hope of finding the culprit. Thankfully, he confirmed that a replacement has been sent out, free of charge.

Tommey is perhaps best known for hist time with Splyce and Fnatic, achieving a number of impressive placements across the Infinite Warfare and WWII seasons.

However, despite being a substitute for the Dallas Empire in the CDL’s opening season, he has since become part of Nadeshot’s 100 Thieves, as a full-time Warzone streamer and competitor.
