Each week we bring you two moments, one of epic success, someone who absolutely nailed it! And another of an epic failure, someone who totally failed it. This week on Nailed It and Failed It…

Nailed It!

This week’s Nailed It comes to us from the Call of Duty League. One of the departments that most esports scenes are still lacking in is the trash talk. There’s something about just the right level of smack talk that can really help push and elevate the level of competition and the passion of fans. Crimsix of the Dallas Empire gave one of the best post-game interviews after taking down the London Royal Ravens with a little bit of his own flair.

I can’t tell if it @Crimsix or @getfrank who made this interview better but I loved it 😂 https://t.co/hZ3qr0nYhC

Failed It!

For our Failed It we stick with Dallas but hop over to Activision Blizzard’s sister league, the Overwatch League. This past weekend was the opening matches for the 2020 season and Dallas was hosting one of the two home stands. They had a rough go as they took on a rookie squad of Los Angeles Valiant losing 3 to 1. To make matters worse on their second day in front of the home crowd they had to play the 2019 Champions the San Francisco Shock who also beat them 3 to 1. Dallas Fuel ended the weekend at home with an 0 and 2 record.
