- During their match against Team Vitality, Schalke 04 was disturbed by an elderly Team Vitality fan, now coined as the oldest esports fan.

Schalke 04 has been doing great up throughout the tournament, only dropping a few games. The last defeat came from Rogue, so the match=up on Aug 30th will be an exciting one to watch. However, something odd happened during the weekend between Schalke 04 and Team Vitality which isn’t seen every day.
Upset Tells Team Vitality Fan To Move Along
During the match between Schalke 04 and Team Vitality, there was a break for the match and both teams went and did their own thing. Team Schalke 04 decided to take a break outside and get some fresh air where they wouldn’t be bothered by the noise from inside the arena. The team was followed by their coach and a few cameras to capture their moments. At one point, Elias Lipp aka “Upset” dropped his snack on the ground, perhaps due to the nerves that one would at this latter part of the tournament. As he was moving back and forth, he noticed a fan approaching his squad.
One of the last things Schalke 04 would want to see would be a fan from Team Vitality to reign in on their break. But, as viewers and people in the chat noticed, it was an elderly man who approached the team wearing a Team Vitality shirt. There are older esports fans that love to see gaming competitions, but it’s not a sight seen every day. Some were suggesting that it might be the father of one of the Team Vitality players, or just a super fan looking to put Schalke 04 off their game.
As the Team Vitality fan approached Schalke 04, Elias Lipp quickly told the fan to move along and pointed in the other direction. Although some viewers were suggesting that the fan lost his track and that Upset was showing him the way, others mentioned that he was annoyed by what the fan was saying. Here’s the clip:
