Going into the final North71 was on top of the table, but with only 45 points differents from 1st to 10th nothing was settled. After 3 played games North71 still had the lead by 8 points over Endzone and the others just behind.
In the final game North71 got wiped with only two points, and with Team Arctic White getting the 30 point game they placed just 2 points in front of us.
Thanks to Fragleague and Fragbite for hosting the tournament, and to all the teams for competing.
The first task
TriggermanTV was the first streamer to complete a task, with a nice squad wipe as he claimed the "Wipe a 3 man squad in under two minutes". Just a few minutes later, MagicSidd claims his first task by running over a player with his truck.
Some great games where played
It came clear early in the tournament that these streamers wasnt here to play, with a 30 kill game from MagicSidd and 3 completed tasks he got an early lead, with the other contestants just behind.
Close race in the end
With the timer closing in it was clear that MagicSidd had to get 3 tasks done just to tie with Skiben. In his last game he managed to finish a bingo row, but was short 3 tasks of Skibens 12. Skiben claimed the victroy with 12 tasks completed.
In the afterparty of the challenge, Geir "Godwave" Innvær annouced that the next challenge was allready in the making and that it is going to be "Battle Royale Frenzy"
What is The North71 Challenge?
With our new Streamer Program, we wanted to add another way for streamers and people to connect. This is why we created The North71 Challenge, a fun and competitive way for streamers to entertain their community while competing against other streamers. The North71 challenge will be hosted once every month and will contain different games and different streamers.
What is Call of Duty Bingo?
Call of Duty bingo is a concept developed by our stream team manager kLixa. Instead of just playing your normal games of Warzone you get specific tasks you have to do to check for spots on the bingo table. If u finish the table or have the most rows by the end of the event you will be crowned champion.
Can I participate?
We want to make The North71 Challenge an exclusive experience for streamers of various sizes and from diffirent games and genres. We are therefore hosting the challenges in diffirent games and formats to achive a best possible experience for the streamer and the audience. The November challenge will an be invite only event, but we will open for streamers to apply in the comming challenges.

We wanted MagicSidd for N71
It is time to welcome our second edition to the Streamer Program. We first discovered MagicSidd through him hosting «Call of Duty: Modern Warfare» tournaments and immediately saw potential. After colaberating with Skiben in some streams we noticed his dedication to streaming and he was considered a perfect match for N71 and our other streamers.
Who is MagicSidd?
My name is Kristian aka MagicSidd and I am 34 y/o. I'm from Sandefjord but have been living in Kristiansand for ten years. I work as a store manager for a big outlet in Kristiansand and have been doing so since I was 17. I started gaming when I was a little kid, and just like so many others I started with «Mario Kart». In 2002 I tried Call of Duty 2 and ever since that day I have been hooked on FPS games.
In 2019 I started streaming on Twitch.tv as MagicSidd. Since I was already playing games every day I decide to share my experiences with others and I haven't had a single regret. The greatest part of streaming for me must be all the great people stopping by and that i get to share my passion for video games.
I usually play «Call of Duty» but I'm not afraid to jump into other games and genres. I have also been hosting tournaments in «COD Warzone» and will keep doing so.
N71 and I share the same goals and dreams and therefore when Godwave reached out I decided this was my next step. I am looking forward to being part of a society and believe this can bring all parts closer to our dreams. - MagicSidd

Since the early days of North71, we have strived to engage in the gaming community in every way possible. The TSA gaming community (to be N71) started off as Godwaves stream followers and friends with a base on a discord channel, this was before streamers and esports. Since then we have established a name in the Norwegian PUBG community and our streamer KippenBro reached a partnership on twitch.
This brings us to our next step.
We are opening a streamer program with the goal to provide a platform for streamers to grow. Skiben is the first streamer and will be the "poster boy" for our campaign. Skiben has been streaming on Twitch for 8th months and has grown as a streamer throughout this time. It is now time for a new chapter and that is joining the North71 family. "I believe in North71's vision when it comes to streaming and esport, and I am looking forward to be working together to reach new heights" - Skiben
Who is Skiben?
My name is Iben aka Skiben on twitch. I have the mindset of a 20-year-old but trapped in a 28-year-old body. I come from a small town in Norway named Etne and work as an energy fitter. I have played games for as long as I can remember and my first games were probably «This Is Soccer» and «Colin Mcrea Rally». I've always had an extra place in my heart for FPS and survival games but since I started streaming I have become a "Variety streamer" which means I play everything that's popular and I like at that time. The reason I decided to team up with N71 is that we share the same ambitions, attitude, and love for both esports and streaming. - Skiben
With the launch of our new "Streamer Program" we are looking for streamers that are dedicated and want to succeed in the streaming world. If this is you contact us!
Great performance from our streamer Kippenbro in this weekends Escape From Tarkov Tournament hosted by Twitch streamer Pestily.
With huge names in the Tarkov and streaming community on the list of contestants it was set to become an exciting event, and indeed it was. With great casting from Pestily and fellow content creators Dan Gheesling and Al Smizzle the tournament became a great success.
And a great success it was for North71 streamer Kippenbro aswell, who got his well deserved screentime. In the linked clip Kippen tosses a nade that kills the opponent and certainly impresses the hosts of the tournament.

Geir “Godwave” Innvær – Founder of North71.
In 2018 Kippen joined North71 as a streamer, this was back when Fortnite was his main game. When we first got to know Kippen he was playing at a high level in Fortnite holding the #1 slot with most kills in that season. We knew that Kippen had potential and decided to invite him to our streamer team.
After leaving Fortnite Kippen ventured into Runescape, DayZ, and other games in different genres. It wasn't until Kippen picked up Escape from Tarkov that his stream really started popping off. He began growing in the Tarkov community and got to showcase his skills as a tactical FPS player.
During the first half of 2020, KippenBro was averaging around 100 concurrent viewers on Twitch and his follower and subscriber count was rapidly increasing.
The Twitch Partner program has strict rules on who is eligible to apply and is something most small streamers dreams of.
In May 2020 Kippen got accepted to the Twitch Partner program and has since worn the purple twitch badge on his account.
Fragleague season 4 is now over, and after 9 weeks of playing we end up in 3rd place. With three weeks left of the league, we were sitting in 9th place and far from the podium. With some changes in the team and mentality, the team set into Round 7 to secure their place at the top. And so they did.
"We wanted to finish amongst top 4 and we knew it was gonna be hard. Gamefraym and Playwell was already too far ahead, but we knew we could take on Team Arctic White and The Gatekeepers in the fight for third place" - Ney
The team has been struggling with missing 4th player and decided to use Godwave as a sub for the last three weeks. "I knew it could be done, I was out of shape and didn't provide much mechanics, but tried my best to help with calls and info. I was confident that Ney, Flying, and Kenny could pull it off" - Godwave

The PUBG team will be playing the Gamefraym Summer Cup, starting next week
The Telia final was played over four different days and featured the 16 best teams in Norway. Going into the finals of Telia we had some roster trouble and didn't really have the highest of hopes. This turned out to be a bigger problem than anticipated. We ended at 14th place and therefor we have to go trough a set of qualifiers to secure 1st division spot for the coming season.

The North71 PUBG team is now facing another set of games to decide if they will stay in the first division of Telialigaen or relegate to second division. The qualifiers will be played on a later date to be announced.
After six weeks of Telialigaen North71 has qualified for the finals. With a great start, we surprised everyone and was 4th in the group on the halfway mark, then something changed.
With only three weeks to go, we were sitting comfortably in third place and was feeling confident. In the halfway break the team played a few popup tournaments and got second place in TG:Online and everything was looking great.

The last three weeks of groups where a rollercoaster and nothing seemed to go our way. We ended up in 5th place and we are playing the finals.
For a while we have been looking at getting an Academy team. Since both Ney and Nick where casting a lobby in 3rd division, we saw this as a opportunity to find someone who would fit. We were searching for a newly started team who we could easily see the potential in. Therefor we have decided to pick up the old "Operation Archery E-sports" roster. The newly formed North71 Academy team will undergo alot of training ahead of Telialigaens next season.
EDIT: We would also like to include a TwitLonger explaining the situation that escalated only minuttes after the original announcement.
This is a directly copy the tweet
As most of you know we have decided to part ways with our player NickTheG.
It's sad to see such a great player go, but sometimes the synergy isn't really there. We wish you the best of luck going forward and believe you can achieve great things in the PUBG scene! GGs brother
We also want to take the time to formally apologies for the way we handled this situation. No player should be treated this way and it's not the North71 way. That being said we are learning from our mistakes. Nick was a great sport and helped us out regardless.
We will not comment further on this situation.
