CSGO player shows how confusing low ranks can be with bizarre ace

A Counter-Strike: Global Offensive player showed just how silly competitive rounds at low ranks can get with an absolutely ridiculous ace.

Like in most first-person shooters, CSGO players can battle it out in a competitive setting through the game’s ranked system.

Most of the time this leads to intense matches where two teams battle it out, however, sometimes things can get hectic and open the door for hilarious moments.

ValveThis bizarre ace took place on Inferno’s banana.

Reddit user ykm618 shared one of those moments on November 5, when his ranked CS:GO game turned a straightforward eco round into possibly one of the most unexpected and absolutely bananas aces in Counter-Strike history.

The setting was Inferno, with the Counter-Terrorists on a full eco after losing the pistol. Ykm decided to go for a cheeky Zeus x27 and flash play down banana, which ended up going better than he could have dreamed.

A quick flash over the wall hit the entire enemy team and the CT charged out, only for everyone to get hit by another flash, causing mass confusion.

When ykm618 recovered he had somehow found himself behind four enemies and quickly pulled out his knife, charging down banana and slicing through his opponents like butter. Before anyone could even react he had amazingly picked up four quick kills.

It’s a mystery how no one noticed the rogue CT sneaking by, and how he was able to get four knife kills without the Terrorists turning around, but he somehow managed to pull off this miraculous and incredibly silly play, before finishing off the final opponent with a scavenged AK-47.

The player didn’t reveal how the game ended, but with an almost unbelievable moment like this, there’s no doubt the remainder of the match would have been an entertaining one to watch.

There is more CSGO on the horizon, with Intel Extreme Masters Beijing-Haidian 2020 starting on November 6, pitting together the best teams in North America and Europe for a spot in the IEM Global Challenge.

Two regional tournaments will take place and both promise to deliver some great Counter-Strike, Europe is looking to provide the majority of the top-quality gameplay while North America will provide a really interesting look at new teams and their up-and-coming talent.

The prize pools that teams will be looking to take home are $150,000 (EU) and $70.000 (NA) with the winners securing a spot for the IEM Global Challenge.

All games will be streamed on ESL’s Twitch account. There will be only one match playing at any time so it will be easy to keep up with.

The European branch is hosting the continent’s elite teams with the Heroic, Vitality, and Astralis looking like the favorites but we cannot ignore the potential challenge from OG and a NiKo-powered G2 Esports; especially after the great form showed at last Premier: Fall Series, with both teams topping their respective groups.

BIG and the Complexity juggernaut will also be at the event, with both teams having proved their capacity to win tournaments in the online era.

The top teams from earlier in the year will also attend the event with Fnatic, NaVi, and Mousesports looking to regain form and consistency.

FaZe Clan will also be attending, with the international roster not yet announcing a replacement for Olof ‘olofmeister’ Kajbjer, it is likely that the former world number one will remain with the team.

NIP, Spirit, North, ENCE, and MAD Lions complete the European line-up.

The 16 teams have been divided into two, double-elimination groups with every match being a best-of-three set. The top four teams from each group will then advance into playoffs, also with a double-elimination component and the now traditional BO5 final.

The two teams to watch out for in NA are obviously Evil Geniuses and Team Liquid. With Furia and MiBr currently residing in Europe, it is up to the two NA giants to conquers this event.

Chaos Esports Club, Triumph, Team One, and New England Whalers have upset opponents in the past meaning we should be keeping an eye out for them to take a map or two off the big teams.

Rebirth and Rugratz are the two teams joining the event through the closed qualifiers.

The North American tournament will use a scaled-back version of the European one with double-elimination groups and playoffs before a BO5 final.
