Flusha had Counter-Strike: Global Offensive fans laughing after their match against MiBR, as a tweet sent by the Cloud9 star after their victory saw Rönnquist take aim at analyst Chad ‘SPUNJ’ Burchill and comments he made prior to the New Legends stage.
Almost immediately after Cloud9's win, flusha went straight to Twitter to post the opening lines of SPUNJ's rant, taking the chance to use Burchill's words against him.
You Cloud9 fanboy. Give me ONE reason RIGHT NOW you absolute moron of a human being as to why we should not be sleeping on Cloud9 because the fact of the matter is if you watched them perform at that event - if you opened your GODDAMN eyes that your mother you - err...— Robin Rönnquist (@flusha) February 20, 2019
