Luminosity Welcomes Anomaly

Luminosity Gaming Welcomes Swedish CS:GO YouTuber-Streamer Anomaly

Popular Swedish CS:GO YouTuber Ludvig ‘Anomaly’ Lagerstedt in his recent video revealed that he has been picked up by the North American esports organization Luminosity Gaming. The organization had been building up a lot of hype surrounding this announcement since quite a few days despite this, the fans were quite surprised when the massive reveal turned out to be none other than the Swedish YouTuber/Streamer Anomaly.

The North American esports organization has been without a functioning CS:GO roster for almost a year now. Since releasing their previous lineup in September last year the organization has stayed away from the game, focussing more on other competitive titles.

In the last few weeks, Luminosity Gaming has made some big moves establishing a new Fortnite roster which is being touted as being the ‘Biggest Signing in Fortnite History’. Following this the organization started teasing the fans that they have another big announcement to make.image

They tweeted out stuff like ‘Who do you think is joining Luminosity next’‘The upcoming signing is VALORANT related’‘A legend is joining Team Luminosity soon’, and other such things to hype up the big reveal until yesterday, when they surprised everyone by revealing the signing of Anomaly.

Many could not initially believe the news because all this while Luminosity had been dropping VALORANT related hints, so everyone believed that the organization was thinking of picking up a roster to enter the new tactical first-person shooter. Maybe there is another such announcement still on the horizon which could be dropped anytime soon, who knows.image

The main concern that the community still has is not knowing Anomaly’s role in the organization because Luminosity never mentioned if he was coming on board as a content creator, a CS:GO pro player, or a VALORANT pro. All the organization stated was “Welcome Anomaly To Luminosity”.

While the YouTuber himself titled his video as “I Joined A Pro Esports Team (Anomaly Pro CS:GO Player)” the community believes that Anomaly was just messing around and that he has certainly been signed as a content creator. This was also based off the fact that he was nowhere near the level of a professional Counter-Strike player and also that Luminosity who has a glorious past in the esport title would try to preserve it and not just throw it all away.

Anomaly is one of the most popular CS:GO content creator out there, running two YouTube channels with around 3.6 million subscribers in total and a Twitch channel as well which has a following of 2.6 million users. Let’s see how the relationship between Luminosity and Anomaly evolve from here on!

Australian Fortnite sensation Elliott ‘Muselk’ Watkins has followed in the steed of Harley ‘MrFreshAsian’ Campbell, joining Luminosity after the disbanding of Click Crew earlier in 2020.

Muselk has found a new home after the Click Crew disbanded earlier in 2020. One of Australia’s biggest names in Fortnite has joined North American organization Luminosity, following former Click member MrFreshAsian.

He was labelled the “God of Fortnite” by Luminosity in their announcement, a title Muselk has coined for himself numerous times over the last few years.

“I’m super excited to be joining Fresh as the newest member of LG,” Muselk said in the July 22 announcement.

Muselk, who has over a million followers on Twitter and almost 10 million subscribers on YouTube, is widely considered to be one of Australia’s most successful gaming content creators.

While he’s not a big hitting pro player dropping dozens of kills in every lobby, he gets up to more creative antics in-game, often working with former Click members like MrFreshAsian and Lannan ‘LazarBeam’ Eacott in his videos.

However, he did joke about being a shoe-in for the Fortnite World Cup later this year. “Epic hand us the trophy right now. Now there’s no way we can lose,” he said.

Campbell, Eacott, and Watkins were all part of the Australian-based content creation house. While Click had a handful of big name talent under their banner, they disbanded in early July. The group last uploaded in April.

Other content creators under the Click banner, like LazarBeam and Kathleen ‘LoserFruit’ Belsten, haven’t found new homes yet.

Muselk was not the only pickup Luminosity made on July 22. They also picked up five other Fortnite pros, including ‘Keys’ and ‘Slackes’, who were suspended for teaming during the Season 2 FNCS tournament.

It marks a massive expansion in Luminosity’s Fortnite arm, which was gutted earlier in 2020 after a number of long-time players left.

Luminosity has a massive signing day that includes some of the top names in Fortnite competitive and content creation.

Luminosity is one of the biggest names in esports, but they seem to have taken a backseat in the Fortnite department over the past year or so. The former LG roster consisted of names top names like Ninja, SypherPK, and Kreo – all of which have moved on from the organization.

Sure, Luminosity had people like Hogman, Kiwiz, and Khuna signed to their roster, but it seemed like a while since the organization made a splash with a big Fortnite signing. At the same time, we’ve been seeing organizations like BBG, FaZe, and NRG sign the biggest names in the game to their teams.

This trend began to change with the signing of Australian YouTuber, MrFreshAsian, but he was only the first domino to fall. On July 22, Luminosity released their massive signing spree, starting with the announcement that they added fellow Australian creator, Muselk, to their roster.

Muselk may be one of the biggest Fortnite creators on the internet, but he was only the first of many signings that Luminosity would announce on July 22. Later in the day, Luminosity announced the signings of Keys, Slackes, Sommerset, Eclipsae, and Jamper.

All of these signings show LG fans that the organization is far from complacent when it comes to Fortnite. In one day, they signed two content creators and a whole squad worth of competitive players.

Several months ago, it seemed like organizations were divesting in Fortnite due to the lack of official tournaments. Well, things have certainly changed since then. Bucke, Kreo, Clix, Slackes, Keys, Jamper, Eclipsae, Calc, and Haz have all been signed within the past month – just to name a few.

Fortnite esports may not be the most competitive game on the planet. It’s far from a game like CS:GO when it comes to an even playing field and competitive mechanics. That being said, it’s incredibly entertaining to watch and the interest from organizations shows that there’s a bright future ahead for the sport. To borrow the words of Jordan Belfort, Fortnite ain’t f***ing leaving.

Esports giants, Luminosity Gaming, have signed three Apex Legend professionals to their roster including players Anatoly ‘Wrigb’ Belousov and Oleksander Sanya’ Bokuchava, alongside coach Oleksandr Xeon Bakumenko

The trio joins Luminosity off to complete ta fully eastern European roster with Anton ‘xaniyaa’ Shkuratov. Including Xeon, the roster is split 50/50 between Russian and Ukrainian natives.

Luminosity Gaming originally entered the Apex Legends scene in 2019 and originally competing with a roster consisting of Exens, Esdesu and xaniyaa, with the latter being the only member remaining. Exens and Esdesu have now both left the organisation.

The announcement comes as a shock considering the lack of high profile names within the roster, however, with the right support, the trio could look to form a great team capable of challenging in North America.

The new roster will look to add to the $10,000 that Luminosity have won in Apex Legends so far, all at the GLL Apex Legends Series in December 2019. 

We will see Luminosity’s new roster next at the Super Summer Regionals, where they will be put to their test to see if they can continue to top North America.

As traditional sports and esports continue to converge, one esports team have signed up a Major League Baseball player to stream under their banner.

Minnesota Twins pitched Trevor May will now represent North American team Luminosity Gaming on his stream.

The 27-year-old has been streaming on Twitch most days since the end of December while the MLB is on break, primarily playing Overwatch with a smattering of H1Z1 and World of Warcraft. He has already attracted nearly 4500 followers on Twitch.

“There is so much we can learn from the world of traditional sports,” Luminosity owner Steve Maida said on the team’s website. “and I hope that Trevor can pass on some of his experience to our players and management.”

Trevor May was drafted by the Philadelphia Phillies in 2008, before making his major league debut with the Twins in 2014. Aside from his interest in gaming he is also a keen amateur DJ under the name “DJ Heybeef”.

May is not the first traditional sports player to try and forge a path for themselves in the esports world. From UFC champion and avid streamer Demetrious Johnson to team owner Jonas Jerebko of the Boston Celtics, more and more traditional esports figures are finding themselves gaining fame online.

Luminosity Gaming owner Steve Maida told Dot Esports that May’s official role is that of a “brand ambassador”. According to Maida, discussions were also ongoing over May potentially obtaining a financial stake in the Luminosity organization.

Richard Sherman is an avid 'Call of Duty' player and moonlights as a shareholder and ambassador for Enthusiast Gaming.
San Francisco 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman is an avid ‘Call of Duty’ player and moonlights as a … [+] ENTHUSIAST GAMING

Like everyone else, San Francisco 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman has had his life grind to a standstill because of the coronavirus outbreak. But being housebound is not all that bad for the one-time Super Bowl champion and five-time Pro Bowler. For one, he has a Peloton at home to use while his normal off-season training is disrupted. For another, the avid gamer, known as MrRUNnGUN25, has plenty of free time to play Call of Duty.

Today, he gets to play with friends, including the Philadelphia Eagles’ newly signed cornerback Darius Slay and professional gamer Josiah “Slacked” Berry. They will join up with other popular streamers, musicians, athletes and celebrities on streaming service Twitch for Stream Aid 2020, a charity event—like Live Aid but online—to raise money for the World Health Organization’s COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund.

“We’re playing [Call of DutyWarzone, and I’m going to get my loadout and pull four or five kills,” he told Forbes by phone, talking some smack about how he was going to dominate. “I’m definitely going to provide some laughs.”

Over 12 hours of programming, from noon to midnight Eastern, a who’s who of celebrity guests will make an appearance on the Amazon-owned platform, including Fortnite streaming star Nick “Nick Eh 30” Amyoony; Mr. Sophie Turner, Joe Jonas; a Forbes highest-paid DJ in Diplo; award-winning singers John Legend, Garth Brooks and Rita Ora; and athletes including two-time Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman, WWE wrestler Cesaro, F1 driver Lando Norris and players from David Beckham’s MLS team Inter Miami—all live-streaming from the social-distancing-safe confines of their own homes.

Esports company Enthusiast Gaming, which counts Sherman as an ambassador and among its minority shareholders, is serving as Twitch’s partner for the event. Through its subsidiary Luminosity Gaming, it will lend its Seattle Surge team in Activision’s Call of Duty League to participate. But its main role: to mobilize the 200 million gamers it connects with on a monthly basis across its gaming websites and YouTube channels.

President Menashe Kestenbaum told Forbes via video conference that the company is replacing advertisements on the company’s digital platform with promotions for the event and embedding the stream for the full 12 hours across all its properties.

“We are giving up revenue, actually,” said Kestenbaum. “And we are happy to—to provide an environment that allows viewers to feel whole and allow them to connect.”

Enthusiast, based in Canada and publicly listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange, is worth $80 million and is in contention to join the ranks of Forbes’ most valuable esports companies this year.

Charity drives are nothing new to Twitch. In December, one of its newly signed content creators, Benjamin “DrLupo” Lupo, raised $3 million during a 24-hour stream for St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.

To date, WHO has raised $108 million from over 200,000 donors for these COVID-19 efforts. Money is being used to support their work to track the spread of the virus, get frontline workers essential supplies, and aid in the development of vaccines, tests and treatments.

“I am excited to help raise money and raise awareness for this cause,” said Sherman. “And just as important, entertain everyone and take their minds off of it for a few minutes.”

Super Bowl winner joins as global ambassador and will challenge NFL players to Call of Duty battles.

National Football League (NFL) star Richard Sherman has bought into Luminosity Gaming as a shareholder.

The San Francisco 49ers cornerback has also been appointed as a global ambassador of the esports organisation.

In his role, Sherman will attend live activations for the esports organisation and its parent company, Enthusiast Gaming. In addition, the 2014 Super Bowl champion will challenge other NFL players to team play with the company’s Call of Duty team, which will be streamed across the Luminosity network.

As captain of Luminosity’s esports organisation, Sherman will also help to build out its professional player roster.

Steve Maida, president of Luminosity Gaming, esports division of Enthusiast Gaming, said: “As a globally recognised athlete, and an avid gamer who was featured on the cover of Madden NFL 15, Richard is a perfect fit for us. With over 50 gaming influencers and esports professional athletes, we are looking forward to adding a Super Bowl champion to our roster.”

Sherman added: “As a brand ambassador and team captain of Luminosity, I plan to bring my competitive spirit and love of the game to the esports organisation.

“I am especially eager to challenge some of my NFL rivals and teammates to join me for online matches, streamed on the Luminosity network for all our fans to view and enjoy.”

The announcement of Sherman follows the Enthusiast’s merger with Aquilini GameCo, the parent company of Luminosity, earlier this month. The deal makes Enthusiast one of the largest publicly traded companies in esports.

Welcome to our new Senior Video Editor @96brixx and our new Video Editor/ Motion Graphics Designer @Diviniteh to Luminosity! #LGLOYAL

Ian “Enable” Wyatt will not be starting for the Seattle Surge for the remainder of the season, with Nicholas “Proto” Maldonado stepping into the starting lineup, Enable and the team announced Thursday.

The Seattle Surge and coach Joey “Nubzy” DiGiacomo revealed the lineup change in a Twitter post.

“Ian has been incredibly professional and understanding of our team asks of him throughout the season,” Nubzy said in a statement. “Unfortunately, we are not in a position to have him join the starting lineup in the interim.”

The announcement followed this up by saying that Enable would help support the team on a day-by-day basis and then thanked him for being a good teammate.

“I appreciate all the support I received this year, I’ll be back,” Enable said in his Twitter post. In a follow-up tweet, he added, “Sucks that I won’t be competing at Champs this year, but I have more fire than ever to compete next game. I still have some left in the tank.”

Enable started for Seattle at the beginning of the season but was benched and replaced by Casey “Pandur” Romano, with the team citing in-game struggles in the Search and Destroy game mode as a reason. Enable returned to the starting lineup of the Seattle Surge for the Seattle home series two weeks ago, but played only three maps before he was replaced again by Pandur for the remainder of the event.

On Wednesday, the Seattle Surge also announced the retirement of Call of Duty legend Damon “Karma” Barlow.

The Seattle Surge are in 11th place out of 12 teams in the Call of Duty League, with a record of 4-12 and 40 total league points.

The Seattle Surge has faced multiple challenges in their debut season of the Call of Duty League. After multiple roster changes, Damon “Karma” Barlow’s retirement, and online issues, Seattle can’t seem to catch a break. The team had little success when matches were in-person, but fans were hopeful that online would be a different story. However, online play only seemed to make Seattle Surge’s problems worse. 

In a recent game against the top team, Atlanta FaZe, Seattle started the series 2-0 before a technical delay ruined their momentum. After an amazing first two maps, production stopped the stream for nearly an hour. Atlanta FaZe went on to reverse sweep the Seattle Surge. This decision was met with public outcry who thought the nearly 50-minute delay was overkill and prevented Seattle from performing an upset. While this did force the CDL to change the rules, it doesn’t excuse the initial incident in the eyes of viewers. 

Seattle Surge’s star player Sam “Octane” Larew has openly spoken out about the Call of Duty League’s perceived lack of competitive integrity. While most of these tweets have since been deleted, his comments have not gone unnoticed. There is speculation that the CDL has fined Octane, along with multiple others, over their comments. 

Seattle Surge lose game over an internet connection

In Seattle Surge’s most recent game against the London Royal Ravens, the CDL’s lack of integrity struck again. Seattle started the series off slowly, losing both the Azir Cave Hardpoint as well as the St. Petrograd Search and Destroy. However, they managed to pull things back in game three by winning the Hackney Yard Domination. It wasn’t until game four when things got worse for the Seattle Surge. About halfway through the map, Josiah “Slacked” Berry disconnected from the lobby. This left Seattle in a 4 versus 5 situation for the majority of the map. 

Seattle Surge 4v5

Call of Duty League fans waited for the map to be restarted since it was still early when Slacked disconnected. However, the map continued and finished with the London Royal Ravens winning 250-77. When the game finished, fans still waited for some sort of explanation from the league on social media, but none came. The disconnect was ruled as “player error” and Seattle Surge was forced to forfeit the series. 

Octane took to Twitter yet again after the matches and shared his thoughts on the ruling through now-deleted tweets. 

COMPETITIVE INTEGRITY STRIKES AGAIN 400 MILLION DOLLAR LEAGUE BY THE WAY 4V5 NO REPLAY SICK JOKE TRY AND FINE ME CDL HOLY FUCK PEOPLE CANT DO THEIR JOBS

Just prior to their game in the May Maylee qualifiers against the Toronto Defiant the Vancouver Titans have announced their seventh player: Niclas “sHockWave” Jensen.

sHockWave is a Danish player who specializes in hitscan heroes like Widowmaker and McCree. He most recently played in Overwatch Contenders for the team Rasberry Racers and before that spent time on the now-dissolved academy team for the Defiant the Montreal Rebellion. This signing for the Titans could not have come at a better time. Not only did they require one more player to meet the league minimum roster amount, but at DPS they most certainly could use a boost. Someone with the explosive skills of sHockWave will certainly fit that bill.

The COVID-19 pandemic introduced plenty of challenges for the Titans, as the team mutually parted ways with the team members and coaching staff fro multiple reasons. With no sufficient space to properly maintain the social distancing guidelines outlined by health authorities, the players and coaches were flown home to be with their families in South Korea, and the remote structure was just not feasible for the players and management.

Within days the Titans were able to bring together a new roster of players and coaches from different countries:

Players:

  • Randall “Roolf” Stark — Support — Canada
  • Dalton “Dalton” Bennyhoff – DPS — USA
  • Samir “Tsuna” Ikram — DPS — USA
  • Atbin “Shredlock” Shirvani — Tank — Canada
  • Alhumaidi “KSAA” Alruwaili — Off-Tank — Saudi Arabia
  • Carson “CarCar” First — Support — USA

Coaches:

  • Steven “Flubby” Coronel — Head Coach — USA
  • Ali “Pew” Anwar — Assistant Coach — USA
  • Eric “Wheats” Perez — Assistant Coach — USA
  • Justin Hughes — Assistant Manager, Team Operations — USA

Tim Holloway, director of Esports for Aquilini Entertainment, says he’s excited for the new group to not only represent the franchise but also to engage and grow with the community. “As a group they are excited to play for and engage with Titans fans in Vancouver and across the Pacific Northwest,” said Holloway.

The viral optical illusion is leaving people on TikTok and Twitter mystified as they try to work out how to do the hand trick. 

TikTok has given the internet dozens of viral dances, trends, challenges, and, well, Lil Nas X. It’s the gift that keeps on giving. A new challenge involves one TikTok user’s viral “hand trick” and it has the internet absolutely mystified. 

People are trying their hardest to figure out how one TikTok user performs the mesmerising optical illusion and their attempts are almost as good as the original video. 

TikTok user @toripareno showed off an optical illusion which makes it look as though one of her hands is going through the other.
