So I’m Gold Nova 3 and i’ve heard Summit say on stream you should be no less than Double AK if you want to play ESEA. I figured i would be fine to use it at my skill level because i play with my Double AK - DMG friends quite often. I was on the edge of buying it when i played a MM against 5 spinbotters and was demoted at the end. I was pretty frustrated at that and bought a sub to ESEA because it has excellent anti cheat.
So I launch ESEA and queue up for Dust 2, Mirage, and Inferno, the three maps i’m best at. After a few minutes of waiting the queue is done and I Ready up and join. I get into the game and immediately notice something weird, in the top right of the scoreboard it says “1747 Viewers”. On the same team as me i notice a guy named fREAKAZOiD. I go to his profile and find it’s actually him. My first game of ESEA, i was matched in a lobby with Global Elites and a Pro Player streaming for 1.7k viewers.
I ended up getting only 3 kills the whole game, and had a few embarrassing moments on stream. One guy on our team was screaming and being hilarious the whole time. I was both nervous as hell and laughing non stop from this guy, making it pretty tough to aim, not to mention I was way under the level of everyone else.
