Professional CS:GO player and streamer Jacob ‘Pimp’ Winneche has posted an emotional message on Twitter following the death of his father.

After a brief period as a Counter-Strike: Source pro, Pimp burst onto the CS:GO scene in 2012 as part of Anexis eSports and remained within the Danish scene until 2016 when he joined Team Liquid and moved to North America.

Things didn’t go to plan with Team Liquid and the 22 year old was benched in March of 2017 after requesting to be benched. During his time on the bench he discovered a new passion for streaming and quickly became one of the most popular CS:GO players on Twitch.

In January of 2018 he returned to his old home at Team Dignitas but not as a player. Instead, the Dane chose to concentrate on his growing streaming presence and he hasn’t looked back since.

Unfortunately the likeable player and entertainer announced on May 4th that he would be taking some time away from playing and streaming following the tragic news about the death of his father.

Pimp stated that his father had passed away peacefully in his sleep on May 3rd, leaving a “proud son”, a wife, and a daughter who had recently given birth to her first child.

The heartbreaking news has understandably hit Pimp and his family hard, especially considering the news about the recent addition to the family.

Regardless, it is never a good time for this sort of thing to happen and we would like to send our condolences to Pimp and his family at this difficult time.

Pimp has promised his loyal fanbase that he will definitely return to streaming but he understandably needs time to process things and be with his family.


Why JKS is the perfect fit for blameF’s Complexity | Richard Lewis

Following 100 Thieves’ departure from Counter-Strike and after weeks of speculation about the former roster, Justin ‘JKS’ Savage finally confirmed his next step in a move to Complexity’s Juggernaut lineup, alongside captain Benjamin ‘blameF’ Bremer.

Richard Lewis breaks down this roster move in his latest video for Dexerto and takes a look at why the signing of JKS could be exactly what this Complexity lineup needs to improve.

Replacing young CS:GO star Owen ‘oBo’ Schlatter, who wanted to return to North America to compete, Savage will have a big role to play on his new team.

With consistent fragging abilities and after coming back off multiple top-two finishes in his final run with 100 Thieves, including a finals appearance in the ESL Pro League, Richard Lewis also highlighted just how much potential the Australian pro has to work with.

However, as BLAST Premier Fall is now underway, JKS will be looking to replicate those performances once again and help this Juggernaut roster, led by blameF, to find more success in the coming months.
