Each Friday evening, of us from across the games trade get collectively for the Family Chicken Dinner Invitational Tournament on Twitch. It is a broadcast of pleasant exhibitions in PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, the last-person-standing shooter from developer Bluehole. Within the Household Dinner, groups of builders, media personalities, and others — in addition to viewers — attempt to survive and kill their option to a win and a pleasant meal full of protein in quite a lot of customized matches. We’re enjoying once more tonight, so tune for that, however till the chef rings that dinner bell, bask within the highlights from final week.
I’m nonetheless engaged on archiving every of the matches from final week on YouTube, however we’ve acquired loads of fast highlights so that you can take a look at under. Additionally, check out last week’s highlights right here.
Danny O’Dwyer and Casey Malone meet some actual killers
Demiurge developer Casey Malone and documentary director/No Clip founder Danny O’Dwyer practically pulled out an enormous win in an early match, however their spectacular run got here to an finish once they bumped into the pair of XenXero and TechMF, who’re common viewers and absolute beasts at PUBG. This was on the finish of our first Eight-person-squads recreation, and it nonetheless got here all the way down to just some gamers on every group making an attempt to get the final kill in.
Is that this mature?
No, this isn’t mature content material. However when Battlegrounds breaks, generally you simply want a second earlier than you go to the afterworld.
The Battle of Three Armies
Throughout one among our Eight-player matches, the group led by Foo Show creator Will Smith and artist Mike Mitchell took a high floor place inside the security of the circle. With that fortified floor, that group was in a position to maintain a group led by Giant Bomb’s Vinny Carravella and Alex Navarro in addition to Waypoint’s Austin Walker pinned down in a grouping of homes on the backside of a hill. The combating went on so lengthy, nonetheless, that one other full squad finally observed and began shifting in from the south. It was one of many extra epic moments throughout the Household Dinner.
Breach & Clear
Within the scary early components of 1 duo match, the excellently named viewer participant Daggett Ronpa tried to cover in a nook to take out a pair that was looking them. However fellow viewer gamers Numaroth and D347 knew the place he was, and that led to some intense SWAT-like motion.
The SnakeLinkSonic technique
SnakeLinkSonic, who I’ve actually identified for greater than 20 years from again once we used to hang around within the Nintendo Chat on AOL, misplaced his group early throughout one spherical. However he had already collected a robust M24 sniper rifle out of a care package deal together with a silencer. So he determined to put within the grass close to the center of the circle and wait issues out, and that technique paid off ultimately.
USGamer’s Mike Williams is a Jedi
Earlier than SnakeLinkSonic picked up the large win, he was sometimes selecting folks off along with his M24. However one particular person he couldn’t get was USGamer reviews chief Mike Williams. In some way, proper as Snake pulled the set off on a superbly aimed headshot, Mike went to select up one thing off the bottom. That induced his character to duck simply because the bullet flew by the place his head was only a second earlier.
In one other duos match, Deep Silver international group supervisor Matt Pascual and O’Dwyer teamed up and located a number of motion on the rocky southern cliffs of the army island. In a single specific battle, Danny discovered himself bleeding out proper subsequent to a different group. However he needn’t fear as a result of Pascual is a crack shot.
When Large Bomb’s Vinny Caravella, Alex Navarro, and Abby Russell, Waypoint’s Austin Walker, and Sony Interactive Leisure’s Matt Kessler get right into a jeep, nice issues are certain to occur.
