16-Year-Old Fortnite Champion Swatted During Live Stream

Kyle “Bugha” Giersdorf 

Kyle “Bugha” Giersdorf, a 16-year-old gaming wonderkind has become household name recently for winning $3 million during the Fortnite World Cup. However, some tool thought it would be hilarious to call the cops to Giersdorf’s home during a live stream.

According to Giersdorf:

“I got swatted… I was lucky because the one officer … he lives in our neighborhood. They come in with guns, bro. They literally pulled up… What if I just got popped?”


Seriously, why the fuck do people still do this? It’s not funny and dare I say DANGEROUS. There, now I sound like an old man. Fuck these people for making me sound all responsible.

[Takes bong rip] There, that’s better.

Assholes: Stop swatting each other.

I Went to a Fighting Game Tournament and an Actual Fight Broke Out (Dad Joke)

Ready… FIGHT!

Again, I’ve mentioned this before, but I don’t watch a lot of eSports. I’m too old and when it comes to video games, I’d rather play them than watch them. HOT TAKE!

What I can get into is EPIC BEEF!

In one corner, we have up and comer Leif “Buffalo” Boisvert and in the other we have Brad “Scar” Vaughn, who is known as one of the better Mortal Kombat players globally.

Boisvert, apparently did not take to kindly to Scar criticizing a previous win against seasoned veteran Jarrad “Ninjakilla” Gooden at an online Mortal Kombat 11 tournament. A Twitter beef then ensued.

Awwww SHIT, it’s on. (Twitter)

Boisvert got his “sweet revenge” at the Community Effort Orlando fighting game tournament when he was matched up against Vaughn. The match was close, but Boisvert came out on top, and like a true gentleman, had an epic pop-off.

First off, props to Vaugh for not punching Boisvert, knocking his ass and his salon quality hair to the ground. That is fucking POISE.

If fighting game tournaments are more like this, I’m going to watch more often. eSports and MMA are arguably the two fastest growing sports in the world, why not combine them? I’d pay money for that. Someone needs to make this happen.

Mediocre Cheap Beer Vows to be the Official Beer of eSports

According to the eSports Observer, Budweiser has filed a trademark to be the “the official beer of gaming” and “the official beer of gamers.”

As a gamer, and highly functioning alcoholic (probably not true), I do not approve.

Budweiser is the most mediocre of beers. It’s highly marketed, mass produced, piss water. Sure, I’d drink it in a pinch, if there was, for example, no other beer at a party, because sometimes getting a buzz takes precedence over anything else.

If anything, this proves that eSports is really gaining traction. If a mainstream brand like Budweiser is hoping on the bandwagon, then you know eSports is getting into the public eye.

Just do yourself a favor and drink better beer.

ESPN’s X Games Brings Back eSports, Apex Legends to Headline

Look, I understand that eSports are wildly popular, even though they are not my cup of tea because I’m an old fart and been gaming since the caveman days.

ESPN however are looking to cash in on the wild popularity of eSports and are bringing them back to the X Games after a three year hiatus and Apex Legends will headline.

20 teams from around the world will compete for a pot worth $150,000, with qualifiers starting on June 29. The finals will take place August 2-3 in Minneapolis. The events will be televised live and a final highlights show will air on ESPN 2.

eSports have sure come a long way. In the past, this event would have been relegated to ESPN The “Ocho”
