Twitch streamer Forsen encountered a very unfortunate scenario during the Twitch Rivals Teamfight Tactics Showdown that saw him eliminated from the game despite winning a battle.

Forsen was one of 64 streamers taking part in the $125,000 Twitch Rivals TFT Showdown, the biggest tournament for Riot’s League of Legends-based autobattler so far.

During one round of the tournament, however, Forsen suffered perhaps the ultimate misfortune, being eliminated in last place despite effectively winning a round of battle.

Riot GamesTeamfight Tactics is Riot Games’ take on the autobattler genre.

Forsen was in a do-or-die scenario with only 2 health remaining, but he looked set to survive for at least one more round as his team appeared to scrape a narrow victory over NoWay4u’s squad. As the final blow was dealt to his enemy’s last unit, however, Forsen also found himself taking damage, and being knocked out of the game.

Though many players may not notice it most of the time, Teamfight Tactics battle rounds do actually have a time limit. In the vast majority of cases, the timer never comes into play as one team wins quickly enough, but to account for situations in which both teams manage to survive for a long time, there’s a hard limit on how long the battle can take.

In the event that the time does run out, both players will take damage from each other, with extra damage being dealt for each unit still alive as usual. This was what led to Forsen’s demise, with the final hit against NoWay4u’s last man standing just barely not landing in time.

Unfortunately for Forsen the result might have proved costly, as the disastrous eight-place finish may well have played a significant role in him being unable to reach the top eight and advance to the second day of competition.

The Twitch Rivals Teamfight Tactics Showdown will return at 9 AM PST on July 18, with the remaining 16 players battling for the lion’s share of a further $25,000 in prizes that are still to be distributed.

After the departure of star LoL player Rekkles from the Fnatic bot lane, the black and orange LEC Gods have finally announced his replacement: Astralis’ Upset. 

The LEC has certainly seen a shake up this year. With Luka ‘Perkz’ Perković leaving to join Cloud9 across the pond, a spot on the G2 roster opened up.

This was quickly filled by Martin ‘Rekkles’ Larssen, the former face of Fnatic, the team’s fans were wondering who would be his replacement. It’s big shoes to fill considering the legacy that Rekkles has left in the Fnatic jersey, so who has chosen to step up to the plate?

With LEC fans debating between Elias ‘Upset’ Lipp and Juš ‘Crownshot’ Marušič the race was on to see who Fnatic would sign.

Fnatic sign Astralis ADC Upset

When Crownshot announced that he would not be playing in any League of Legends tournament this year, fans were pretty certain that Upset would be the future ADC for the black and orange legends.

Therefore, when Fnatic announced Upset as ADC earlier today fans may not have been shocked, but they’re certainly excited to know who hold the future of the Fnatic botlane.

Upset has been a constantly high performing player ever since his days with Schalke 04. Taking what many believed to be a step up when he joined Origen (now Astralis) last season, Origen’s disappointing performance in the second split meant that roster readjustments were clearly needed.

With the ADC position being the least of Origen’s worries, it was pretty clear that Upset would be looking for a more competitive team to carve out his future with.

Will he be able to challenge the dynasty that Rekkles has left in his wake, or will he forever be caught in the Swedish legend’s shadow? Only time will tell, but we know Upset’s going to work extra hard to make his name sit side by side with the former Fnatic bot laner.
