CS:GO legend shox has finally ended his streak and missed out on a CS Major after an overtime loss to GamersLegion.

CS:GO’s competitive scene has been thriving for a decade. The long-standing esports title has a storied history, and many of its greatest players have been around since the very beginning.

Out of all the players that have been playing CS:GO since the very beginning, very few have managed to make it to every Major. And now, there’s one less player that can lay claim to that record.

The 30-year-old French player has one of the longest careers in esports, with his experience dating all the way back to Counter-Strike: Source.

He hit the ground running with CS:GO, and has played for some of the biggest organizations in the world. He’s carried the banner for G2 Esports, Team Liquid, and Vitality throughout his career, and has taken home a number of titles over the years.

On August 27, shox put out a tweet stating that his team, Apeks, were “clearly not ready to qualify”.

Sadly, the loss is likely the end of shox’s record and his incredible streak of attending every CS:GO Major.

However, the French pro could technically transfer onto a team that has qualified for the upcoming competition, though it’s unlikely.

Now, only dupreeh and Xyp9x hold onto the title of attending every CS:GO major, with Xyp9x fighting for his tournament life through the European RMR to hold on to the record.
