OpTic caster and content creator Jack ‘CouRage’ Dunlop was participating in the Doritos Bowl Blackout tournament when he realized he’d been wearing his headphones backward, which completely flipped his game audio.
CouRage Tweeted about his blunder after the fact, stating that he hadn’t realized his mistake until he was already 20 minutes into the tournament.
“Putting your headset on backwards will flip all the audio,” he wrote. “Took me 20 minutes to figure that out live on stage in a $250,000 tournament.”
However, CouRage wasn’t the only one to make this mistake – popular streamer Ben ‘DrLupo’ Lupo confirmed that he, too, had worn his headphones backward.
“Same lol,” he replied, to which one user responded, “Y’all are getting old.”
Even OpTic’s Ashes got in on the fun, Tweeting an alleged quote from Gears of War captain Xplosive, “These lights do things to people.”
