Despite Fortnite Esports barely getting off the ground, storied organization Team SoloMid (TSM) are proving their dedication and faith in the game by splashing out on an impressive team house.

The TSM Fortnite team is of course home to some of the most popular Fortnite streamers and players, Ali “Myth” Kabbani, Darryle “Hamlinz” Hamlin, Juan “CaMiLLs” Camilla and Daequan.

The squad are yet to take part in any official competition, of course mainly because there hasn’t been anything announced in the form of official tournaments or leagues.

But they have already built themselves quite the reputation thanks to their streams, with Myth especially seeing a massive boom in his following both on Twitch and YouTube.

So with their combined followings, it is likely that TSM will look to increase the output of content between the members, in similar ways to other esports organizations such as OpTic Gaming or FaZe Clan.

When Fortnite Esports inevitably establishes itself properly this team will have already built themselves a large fan base.

The house tour shows off the incredible living space provided for these future Fortnite pro players, complete with individual rooms and setups – and a large backyard area, possibly big enough for a pool.

The team will be streaming and practicing from the team house, as well as presumably creating YouTube content with each other.

Some of the team did get their first taste of a Fortnite tournament with some big cash on the line during the Friday May 11th tournament hosted by KEEMSTAR, where Myth placed top 12.

Call of Duty

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.
