Jaryd “summit1g” Lazar ranks as one of the leading Counter-Strike streaming authorities with comfortably over a million followers. Over the weekend he took a gander and subbed for a pro team, which suffice to say, didn't bode well for the young lad.
With a whopping $250k on the line the big boys were definitely out like Luminosity, Tempo Storm, and Cloud9. Summit however, was subbing for Splyce, which isn't the most accomplished of American teams.
Splyce found themselves squared off against Counter Logic Gaming, where they surprisingly enough held their own, and even took 15 rounds to CLG's 11.

Splyce went on to end up in OT, lost the next couple games, and the eventual match 2-0.

Kyle approaches the matter with impressive candor, talking about how his efforts began with a table dance, until his wife told him to get down; and that he hasn't asked for anything in five years...except for a Darth Vader Pez dispenser, a waffle iron shaped like the DeLorean, and a Walking Deadblanket.
Kyle then asked Blizzard to send him a free copy of Overwatch in exchange for a piece of artwork he created as a gift to them for their generosity. The gift was titled, “Deadpool Licking Some Rock. A Dog Watches.”
And at long last this epic saga wraps up with the following response from a Blizzard representative, who addressed Kyle's previous letter/efforts:
