#twitterlygaming - Valve warned, drones and Tony Soprano's mum

The best of the industry on Twitter this week.

Ever find that one problem with Twitter is too many tweets? Fear not, Totally Gaming has been scouring the feeds to bring some of the more interesting ones from the industry to your attention. Have we missed something? Tweet us at @totallygaminghq or re-tweet using the hashtag #twitterlygaming

One big item of news this week is that CS:GO developer Valve was told, in no uncertain terms, to stop allowing third parties to use its skins in any form of gambling.

Esports Betting Report’s Will Green, who wrote a report courtesy of Narus Advisors on skins recently, broke the news:

Pinnacle love being the first on the scene with new markets and they’ve seemingly done it again by offering markets on the upcoming Drone Racing World Championship in Hawaii. Unfamiliar with drone racing? It’s a sport in which pilots race quads at typical speeds of between 60mph to 80mph and they do this FPV (first person view) via goggles or a screen on their control pads.

If you’ve ever claimed to have fast reactions here is the sport to prove it.

If you’re a golf fan then you’ve probably not looked away from a computer or TV screen much this week. Alan Brazil, of talkSPORT and BetOnBrazil, was clearly enthused with the performance of Team Europe earlier this week (the final result is unimportant).

Neil Warnock is now back in football management after agreeing a deal to take over at Cardiff City. Never one to miss an opportunity to ‘tease’ someone, Paddy Power posted this admittedly excellent transformation image of Warnock into Tony Soprano’s mum…

Moritz Maurer of Betgenius predicted that the ongoing World Championships in League of Legends will be esports’ biggest regulated betting event to date. For the bettors out there he also tipped that ROX Tigers will win the competition though as a team mug owner he may be a little biased.

With the formal announcement by Theresa May of when Article 50 will be triggered, the pound began to fall and fall hard. Betway and others duly opened a market on the lengths to which it may fall.
