Crowd favourite Joseph “OhNoAGoat” Nassar burst onto the FIFA competitive gaming scene out of nowhere. Thanks to an impressive qualification campaign, he climbed all the way to the top of the 2017 November Weekend League Leaderboard with 145 wins and grabbed a ticket to the 2017 Regional Finals in Sydney – his hometown. These totals led to high expectations, but OhNoAGoat couldn’t transition his online success onto the big stage, ending with a record of 1 win and 2 losses, unable to progress to the knockout stage.
OhNoAGoat (who also has one of the best gaming handles in the community) now gets a second shot at FIFA glory at the Season 2 Rest of the World Regional Final, thanks to another impressive record in the January Weekend League where the Australian climbed to the second spot with 111 wins and only 9 losses. But the question remains, is OhNotAGoat ready to step up at a live event?
