Thomas Mulligan (born: May 26, 1994 (1994-05-26) [age 26]), better known online as 72hrs, is an American eSports gamer, YouTuber and Twitch streamer known for playing Fortnite: Battle Royale. He became a member of Team Liquid on June 5, 2018, alongside Chap, POACH, Vivid and Strafesh0t ever since the announce of Liquid Fortnite Team.

History

Thomas started playing games as a hobby, by playing Dead by Daylight. Ever since hearing about the positive feedback on the game itself, Thomas got more into the game and spent more time into it. He streamed the game as a start to his Twitch career. And since the game started declining in popularity, Thomas switched to streaming Fortnite.

Joining and Leaving FaZe Clan

Thomas was invited to FaZe Clan by Cloakzy, captain of the FaZe Fortnite Team, on March 3, 2018. Thomas claims him joining FaZe Clan made him get better at the game, due the pressure that came in to help himself play more professionally.

Thomas left FaZe on June 5, 2018 and was invited to Team Liquid the same day. The reason for switching was because Thomas felt more comfortable being in Team Liquid rather than FaZe Clan. FaZe members accepted his switch and moved on to be a Team Liquid member and is still today a member of Team Liquid. Thomas does still often play with FaZe members Tfue, Cloakzy and Nate Hill in Fortnite scrims.

Controversy

Rage Quit

During a Fortnite livestream in December 2018, Thomas asked for help and back-up with his squad Chap, POACH and Vivid. In Fortnite, there are teleports located at 'Wailing Woods', and Thomas decided to use one and asked for back-up in-case of being attacked by another squad team. Thomas used a teleport to another area inside Wailing Woods and was automatically knocked down by another team. Thomas then quickly asked for help as told, but nobody came in to help.

Thomas quickly got angry and frustrated at his members and said multiple times his team is bad due to the incident. While Thomas was still frustrated, one of his squad team did say he teleported but teleported back because Thomas was already eliminated from the match.

Thomas called his squad team "p*ssies" and "cowards", and also said "such cowardess on his team". He then left the squad team, left the Discord call and ended his livestream.

Aftermath

Thomas claimed on Twitter that it was for banter, entertainment and loves messing with his viewers. Thomas is still in Team Liquid and does still play with his squad.

Outburst with Tfue

Thomas and his friends Tfue and Cloakzy have been Fortnite competitive trio partners several times. Three of them placed 11th in the first week of the trio champion series, and 5th place on the 2nd week.[1][2] The outburst started by Tfue asking for another trio, Cloakzy tweeting about doing an advertisement, and Thomas asking for trio partners as well.[3][4] Tfue then turned his stream on several minutes later. And around the beginning of the stream, Cloakzy was spamming Tfue in the chat stating "If you want to play we have to cut an hour short for this one and start an hour late for next @Tfue", meaning they are going to play the next trio champion series an hour late. Tfue made the response stating that Cloakzy and Thomas have not been playing Fortnite as much as they used to, as they were playing other games including World of Warcraft Classic and taking a break from Fortnite. However, Tfue thought they were still going to play the trio champion series. Tfue was also offered by EA Sports to play Madden for $140,000. Tfue declined the offer because he thought he was still going to play with his trio Cloakzy and Thomas. Tfue later said he was not upset, but Cloakzy and Thomas did not tell Tfue about the deal when they were playing Madden for a brand deal.[5][6][7]

Response

When Thomas was playing World of Warcraft Classic, he responded about himself and Cloakzy accepting the brand deal with EA Sports and later on asked Tfue about it so they could be a trio in the game.[8]

When Cloakzy was doing a viewing party, he responded about Tfue declining the brand deal, stating that Tfue made a dumb decision to decline the brand deal.[9]
