The world’s first ‘adult-themed’ esports tournament is being hosted by lewd game portal Nutaku, and has partnered with one of biggest adult video sites, YouPorn.

Nutaku is a website which hosts numerous adult games such as ‘Karmasutra’, ‘Battle Girl’ and ‘Phantasma Magic’, and is now expanding into esports.

It’s first tournament will be a competition played on mobile game ‘TnT’ (Yes, that’s Tits’n’Tanks), and will feature a $25,000 prize pool.

In total 64 players will compete at what is dubbed the “Lewd Gaming Championship”, and on top of the potential to win cash, every participant receives a 12 month YouPorn premium membership for free.

Nutaku’s product manager Ben Faccio said that TnT was one of its most “coveted” titles and was perfect for esports, as players have been asking for a way to show off their skills.

“Think of it as World of Tanks but with fully uncensored anime action integrated into the gameplay. We’re confident TnT will bring in a trove of lewd gamers and take the world of eSports to the next level.”

YouPorn itself isn’t entirely new to esports though, as the website has previously sponsored an Overwatch team and a SuperSmashBros player under the name ‘Team YP’.

However, some tournament organizer’s including ESL have battled to keep teams sponsored by the website out of their tournaments.

But for Nutaku, YouPorn is the perfect partnership, as the type of games on show at this tournament will be much more fitting with YouPorn’s market.

Vice President of YouPorn, Charlie Hughes, says they are ‘thrilled’ to be in business with Nutaku to launch the first ever adult esports tournament.

“YouPorn has been involved in esports for years with our very own Team YP, and it has added a new level of diversity and community to our platform that we’re excited to introduce to Nutaku.”

You can see the trailer for TnT below – and don’t worry, it’s the SFW version.

Call of Duty

CoD streamers slam Warzone star WarsZ for “pathetic” K/D tanking

Call of Duty: Warzone stars continue to call each other out – this time Tommey is joined by HusKerrs and others in critiquing multi-event champion, WarsZ, for manipulating tournament Kill-Death Ratio (K/D) caps by tanking his account.

With more and more money being piled into Warzone tournaments, the stakes are higher than ever and competitors are understandably adamant about integrity. Many of these competitions have turned to K/D caps, as a way to limit good players from forming super squads that’ll end up dominating the opposition.

Following earlier condemnations from top streamers like NICKMERCS and Aydan about others gaming the K/D cap limits, Tommey has exposed WarsZ in particular for allegedly partaking in the unfair practice.

Tommey, a former Call of Duty League player and multi-time Warzone champion, did not hesitate to single out WarsZ for a suspicious drop in his kill-death ration just ahead of this week’s leg of the $210,000 Vikkstar Warzone Showdown.

Although the caps have been instituted in tournaments to provide for better parity among teams, they can also be manipulated by purposefully delivering uncharacteristically poor performances.

WarsZ has won six Warzone championships across different tournaments, so Tommey’s linked image of the streamer having double-digit zero-kill matches in the past few days is particularly damning.

“People seem to be scared of the repercussions but I’m fed up with the bulls**t,” Tommey tweeted, tagging the rival competitor directly while calling the alleged tanking “pathetic.”

As for WarsZ’s response, it was not well-received. Suggesting that this notable drop in K/D was spurred by having his “girl” play on his account, a variety of notable Warzone competitors slammed the excuse. Among those wast renowned multi-time champion, HusKerrs, who replied simply, “Brother, c’mon now… nobody is buying that.”

Popular streamer DougisRaw also chimed in, mocking the excuse for how obviously the screenshot goes against the idea of letting an inexperienced player drop in for some games: “Damn, your girl plays solo squads. She’s cracked.”

 

While none of the allegations can be proven, many seem dissatisfied with WarsZ’s excuse and believes it is unfair to competitors like Jukeyz and others who were unable to snag tournament spots because of their high K/D.

It must be noted, as Tommey mentioned in the tweet above, that Vikkstar’s tournament technically doesn’t prohibit such a tactic, so while WarsZ isn’t breaking any rules, it’s fair to say that the rest of the big-name competitors don’t think too highly of it.

It remains to be seen if other tournaments will begin following NICKMERCS in the way he runs his MFAM Gauntlets, monitoring participants’ past in-game performances to make sure that they’re not trying to circumvent the K/D cap.
