It’s not often that the loser of a match can walk away a winner. But in rare cases, it can happen. When the stars align and all is right, the winner is crowned by the people rather than the outcome.
When we went up against Astralis, nobody could have predicted what kind of match awaited. If you asked me if the match would eclipse the experience I had when watching the Liquid matchup a day before, I wouldn’t believe it.
But for a match to go into 6x overtime and for us to win that round against such a good team was an achievement in itself. It was a level of play that made me go crazy. I was completely entranced by what I was seeing.
This was the kind of professional CS:GO that makes this game what it is! This is a match that will likely be remembered by the community forever, and I’m lucky to have watched it live.
So, check it out if you haven’t already. You know you want to.
