FaZe Clan x TCL Celebrity Pro-Am

November 29, 2019 Shadowhorn 0 Comments



$50k was on the line as FaZe Clan's own teamed up and faced off against artists, Lil Yachty, Offset, Slim Jxmmi and Borgore in this Celebrity Pro-Am at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood.

With the forecourt of the TCL Chinese Theatre gated off, we had FaZe Temperrr, Apex, Adapt and Teeqo roll up to shoot some b-roll in front of the historical IMAX theatre. The LA crowd loved taking their photos, catching a glimpse of some of gaming's finest. Once the b-roll was shot, we walked upstairs and made our way to the Hollywood Esports Theatre where the tournament was about to get started.


We were so lucky to have Esports Hall of Fame broadcaster, Puckett carry the matches on the caster desk. Cizzorz along with others joined him throughout the tournament to really bring some next-level commentary and hype to the table.

This was such a fun event to be a part of because Modern Warfare had just come out and everyone had been grinding like crazy in the days prior to make sure they could hit the shots and know the maps for a chance to take home the $50k.

Before we get to the actual tournament, here are some of my favorite photos and videos from the event! Winner Spoilers: Photos 7-8. Don't miss FaZe Blaze breaking it down in that crisp Skeleton hoodie from the Halloween Skeleton collection in Photo 9!


And now for the tournament
The game mode was gunfight. The players would spawn into the map with the same load out and 40sec would be put on the clock. In addition to only getting one life per round, the primary and secondary weapons would also switch with every round to make sure there's always an interesting gunfight going on. Shotguns, snipers, you name it. It went down. If you did not eliminate your opponent by the end of the 40sec timer, you would have to run to objective and capture the point securing the round for your team.

The 2v2 team breakdown was as follows:
  • Temprrr - Offset
  • Apex - Lil Yachty
  • Adapt - Slim Jxmmi
  • Teeqo - Borgore

Who do you guys think took home the $50,000? Who out sniped who? Let me know in the comments below and let's get this tournament started.
