MrBeast calls out……. following Doublelift’s LCS
During a Twitch broadcast yesterday, Doublelift revealed to viewers that he would no longer be able to co-stream the upcoming weekend of LCS games after receiving his “second strike” from Riot Games for making comments about the league “dying.” After catching wind of this today, popular YouTuber MrBeast criticized the company’s decision.
On July 9, Twitch hosted the event titled “MrBeast vs. Ninja Ultimate Crown,” a bout between the two massive content creators in League of Legends. Originally, Team Liquid LCS star Bjergsen was meant to join MrBeast and his team for the event, but according to Doublelift’s comments on July 11, Riot and the LCS barred the franchise player from participating.
“Riot and LCS blocked Bjergsen from playing in this event, he was supposed to be on MrBeast’s team. Look guys, LCS is dying, the viewership is absolutely dying,” Doublelift said. “Why would you not let one of, if not the face of the league play in an event with two of the biggest creators in the world?”
In response to Doublelift’s comments during his July 11 broadcast, Riot suspended the former League pro’s co-stream permissions until after the LCS games this upcoming weekend.
In a reply to Jake Lucky’s tweet covering the situation, MrBeast called out the massive company for seemingly being against an open discourse about its league.
“This is a thing? Not letting people criticize the LCS is a phat L,” MrBeast wrote.
Despite being unable to have Bjergsen participate, MrBeast and Ninja’s League showmatch went off without a hitch and was seen as an entertaining event for fans, even managing to bring in more viewership than the LCS a week prior, according to TwitchTracker.
Riot has not made an official statement about the situation as of yet.
Gun skill is at the center of Apex Legends gameplay. If you struggle to consistently hit your shots, the game becomes much more difficult. But never fear, Aim Lab is here with six scenarios designed to train your precision and aiming. This playlist will help train your mouse movement and stability to ensure that you’ll be able to hit shots anywhere, any time.
Before you get started, make note of your mouse sensitivity. Feel free to adjust it up or down to find your best starting accuracy. A higher sensitivity forces you to use tiny hand and arm movements to make small adjustments but will likely be more comfortable overall. A lower sensitivity allows you to more easily make precise adjustments but will slow down your mouse movement for anything else. You’re looking to find a balance, so don’t be afraid to experiment.
Sixshot Ultimate features multiple minuscule targets that spawn at varying distances from each other. You’ll need to really control your mouse movement to quickly switch from target to target without over or undershooting. Focus on controlling your hand’s momentum as you accelerate and decelerate.
This scenario also contains multiple targets spawning in front of you, but this time they are oscillating in size. The goal is to be as fast and accurate as possible, meaning that you’ll want to get to your next target before it shrinks and causes you to lose accuracy. Work to find a balance between speed and precision to maximize your score.
Scattershot Standard is a unique scenario that has you flicking to a single target. Once you hit it, the target will split into two smaller targets very close by. Successfully destroying those starts the cycle over. This scenario tries to emulate a standard aim pattern in Apex by having you make a large adjustment to your target, then micro-adjust to make sure all your shots land.
In Microshot Ultimate, targets will spawn one after the other in a smaller range of motion. You’ll be using small mouse movements to quickly switch to the next target and build micro-adjustment muscle memory. This scenario will build up a familiarity with that smaller area of your mouse pad, so try and switch between it and other scenarios that integrate some larger movement like Scattershot Standard.
Headshot Precision places one target at a time on the same vertical, headshot level. All that you’ll be doing is flicking left and right to click as many heads as possible. Try and stay accurate while focusing on your crosshair placement to get a feel for proper headshot aiming. This scenario isn’t too important to master, but it is meant to get you ready for the grand finale.
The last scenario ties everything that you’ve been practicing together. Hordeshot Standard will send multiple player-shaped targets at you from both sides at varying depths. These targets can strafe wide or close and will randomly crouch. Your goal is to quickly take down as many as you can. Being able to flick from head to head is crucial.
Apex is a movement-heavy FPS. To make this practice more applicable to the actual game, try to turn on Practice Mode in the settings and take on the scenario while constantly strafing back and forth. This will be much more difficult, but it will simulate gunfights much more accurately with you trying to dodge your opponent’s shots as well.
Those six scenarios will help you improve your accuracy and aiming fundamentals in Apex. Each set will take about 15 minutes and will train both your flicks and your micro-adjustments. You may not see progress right away, but building proper habits and mouse movement will make you a more consistent player in the long run.
