The CS:GO community was stunned after Team Liquid fell to ENCE in the IEM Katowice Quarterfinals - but it seems like Cloud9 Owner Jack Etienne recovered quick enough to throw some jabs at the defeated side.
Team Liquid were at the cusp of tying up the series 1-1 on their map choice of Inferno, when ENCE rallied all the way down from 8-15 to win it in Overtime.
It wasn’t long before esport’s Best Meme-ing Owner Jack applied salt to the fresh wound Team Liquid received moments prior.

Jack tweeted what most casual CS:GO viewers must have thought, after it seemed like the star-studded lineup of Team Liquid were going to roll toward a tied series.

“Wait, how did ENCE win,” Jack asked. “I turned it off when Team Liquid went up 15-9 on the second map.”
The burn was immediately followed by a healthy dose of the classic “This is the Universal Sign for Choking” meme, custom made with the Team Liquid logo.
A fan warned Jack to be cautious with memes like this since the Internet would remember the jab and remind him when this happens to one of his teams in the future. But the Cloud9 owner cooley met the comment with a very self-aware response.
“It's happened plenty of times in the past to us and it will again,” Jack said. “It's the nature of the game…”
The tweet was met with overwhelming applause, with adding their own meme to the fray. Seems like Jack wasn't too down to see the fellow North American team go down.
