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 we tip our hats to Overwatch League Caster and former Houston Outlaws player, Jake Lyon but we face-palm at Kquid, former Fortnite pro.
Nailed It! Jake Lyon of the Overwatch League
With the world thrown into a loop due to the Covid-19 Pandemic most esports are shifting to entirely online formats. In this case there are going to be technical hiccups along the way. During the Overwatch League broadcast this weekend when the Florida Mayhem played the Washington Justice, Jake’s co-caster TempoZP lost connection and Jake was left all alone. He solo casted the remainder of the match providing play by play, analysis and color commentary. Watch this clip of a true professional at work.
Failed It! Former Fortnite Pro, Kquid
While Jake Lyon may be riding high on his nailed it, Kquid a 14 year old Fortnite star is not. A now former Fortnite pro is being called out for cheating and this time it’s for having aim assist while on mouse and keyboard. Despite the controller jokes, Kquid is claiming it was another Epic Games false ban, but the evidence might say otherwise for the former FNCS champion. Kquid is 14 years old, and he got on stream to explain why he believes he was falsely banned. In the video he claims that his computer was connected to his schools cloud data storage and that Epic’s cheat detection may have detected something in there that it thought was aim assist. This sounds like the esports equivalent of ‘the dog ate my homework’.
