The PUBG stage at DreamHack Austin appears to use an absolutely crazy, multi-floor layout in order to accommodate sixteen different teams during the LAN tournament.

Set to take place between June 1st and June 3rd, DreamHack Austin will feature a collection of different games, tournaments, and other activities related to the gaming and esports world for attendees to enjoy.

Titles such as Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Hearthstone, Rainbow Six, and a number of others will be included in the massive convention, along with various content creators and personalities from Twitch and YouTube.

DreamHack Austin will also host a $100,000 PUBG tournament with teams such as FaZe Clan, Team Envy, Team Liquid, and more already punching their ticket to be included in the sixteen squads participating.

With the main PUBG event not set to begin until Saturday, June 2nd, Jason Lake, the CEO and Founder of compLexity Gaming, shared a picture on Twitter of the unique format of the stage, which has a multi-floor layout.

A total of five more teams will be able to qualify for the main event via the ‘BYOC’ finals on Friday, June 1st, with competition on Saturday kicking off at 2:00 PM CST (3:00 PM EST, 8:00 PM BST).

Tommyinnit reveals he used to stream snipe Shroud before he was famous

Tommyinnit might be the most popular streamer on Twitch right now, averaging over 200,000 concurrent viewers for his sporadic Minecraft streams, but it turns out he used to be a massive shroud fanboy. In fact, he was one of shroud’s infamous stream snipers.

Stream sniping is the practice of using a streamer’s broadcast to gain information about the game they are playing – either to get an unfair advantage, or simply to join their game and troll them.

During the height of PUBG’s popularity in 2017, shroud was the biggest streamer on Twitch, and had an army of loyal stream snipers who would try endlessly to get into his matches.

Shroud’s stream snipers weren’t like others though – instead of trying to kill him, they would sing him songs, give him weapons and armor, or try to save his life when under attack.

Tommyinnit admits shroud stream sniping

Although it’s against the rules of most games and of Twitch itself, Tommyinnit has admitted that when he was 14, back in 2017, he loved both PUBG and shroud, and would spend hours up late trying to get into his games.

And he was successful too – often matching up with him, and trying to save his life from actual enemies attacking him. Shroud eventually became familiar with Tommy’s name, and would say hello to him. In a video on his second channel, Tommyoutit, came clean about all of his stream sniping antics.

In one session, shroud even talked to Tommy about playing Minecraft, the game that he’s so well-known for now.

But, it turns out that Tommyinnit made this video because it wasn’t just years ago in PUBG that he was stream sniping shroud. When he recently saw shroud on a Minecraft server with proximity chat, he had to try it again for old times sake.

Unfortunately, shroud didn’t seem to be enjoying himself at all this time around, and soon after left the server – though not before killing Tommyinnit’s character, twice.

Although stream sniping is technically against the rules on Twitch, we’re sure the platform will let this one slide, as it was all in good fun. The real question is whether shroud has made the connection that one of his old stream snipers is now one of the biggest names on Twitch alongside him.
