Bizarre. That headline just looks like random words put together. Had to read the article for it to make sense.
Yeah, its all a big buzz at the moment after it occurred.
I don't play Fortnight but a lot of the streamers/You tubers that cover games I do play have been going on about it.

If it is the same streamer I think it was I used to watch him play halo years ago.

Iggles, 76ers.
Wtf is with that article discussing them like they are actual athletes. My god I hate e"Sports".

I get why the club is doing this from a commercial perspective but the players literally sit on their asses for weeks and months on end playing video games. They aren't ******* athletes.
Elite thumb skills rarely get the respect they deserve.

EFC needs to get into CSGO and invest in a team overseas. It will give them more exposure as a brand and it will be great watching a team that doesn't suck. The Aus scene for esports here is sh*t and will continue that way for a while. Not really worth investing in, imo.

For those that don't know what CSGO is, its Counter-Strike Global Offensive. I'm sure some of you old campaigners on here will know what CS is, in its former iterations (1.0, 1.3, 1.6, source etc).

More in depth about the game, for the people who have no clue -

Interesting comparison with the footy team, based on that article (i.e. I haven't followed the eSports team at all).

eSports:
  • Struggled in the first half of the year.
  • Turned it around in the second half of the year and look quite competent.
  • Everyone delisted.
AFL team:
  • Struggled in the first half of the year.
  • Turned it around in the second half of the year and look quite competent.
  • Expecting finals in 2019!
