Vitality AWPer Mathieu ‘ZywOo’ Herbaut demonstrated his prowess by kicking off 2020 with a ridiculous 1v5 Deagle clutch in CS:GO.

ZywOo has been widely regarded as one of the breakout players during 2019 since joining Vitality and has quickly put himself in the conversation against names such as s1mple.

The French rookie has been seen carrying his teammates to deep tournament runs at times and putting up performances that made many fans believe he was the best CS:GO player in the world.

Team VitalityZywOo is regarded as one of the best CS:GO players in the world.

The 19-year-old still seems to have remained in top form over the holiday season, pulling off an unbelievable 1v5 Deagle clutch during an FPL match to kick off the new year.

After finding himself stranded alone on Dust 2’s Catwalk during an offensive round, ZywOo opted to put away the Scout sniper rifle in favor of the classic Desert Eagle, with it’s one-tap potential.

It did not take him long to put it to good use, as he quickly dispatched of the approaching opponents with sharp flicks resulting in headshot kills for the French star.

After eliminating the first three players, ZywOo crept his way to the A site before disposing of yet another enemy and planting the bomb.

Unfortunately for the final opponent, there was little he could do, the vitality star baited him into peeking wide and he was instantly met with the same fate as his teammates.

After ZywOo managed to complete the flawless ace clutch, everyone in the lobby could only admire his play and claimed the players were simply “Zywooed.”

Many Vitality fans will be happy to see ZywOo pulling off incredible clutches such as this one in the run-up to BLAST Pro’s 2020 season that kicks off in London on January 31.

Report: Valve cancel upcoming 2021 CSGO Major

CS:GO publishers Valve have scrapped plans for the game’s next Major tournament, which was set for May 2021, according to an email sent out to organizers.

According to a report from HLTV, the Major that was due to take place May 10-23 will no longer go ahead, presumably due to the global health crisis and travel restrictions, with Valve expecting impacts to still be felt in six months.

This was also why the previous Major, ESL One Rio 2020, which was meant to have taken place in September, was canceled. In the announcement from ESL, they stated “While Valve is currently not able to say when and how Majors will return, as soon as they do we’ll work to bring the Major to Rio.”

In the email to organizers, Valve explained their plans in more detail, including confirming a Major to be held in Europe later in 2021 has been agreed with a partner and venue.

CSGO Major in 2021

“We are still disentangling our prior commitments,” Valve said, “and currently have both a partner and an EU venue designated for a Major later in 2021.

“Assuming it makes sense to proceed, the event will take place October 25-November 7 with a potential play-in event October 23-24.”

The last Major was StarLadder Berlin, which concluded with Astralis’ victory in September 2019. That means that it could be a full two years since the previous Major before we see another. With plans for it to take place in Europe, it means that all of the last four Majors will have been held in the continent.

In the email sent to tournament organizers and obtained by HLTV, Valve added that it “doesn’t have any new information about the Regional Major Ranking (RMR)” system, but welcomed feedback from the recipients.

At least in the meantime, while there are no Majors, CS:GO just launched it’s new Operation, Broken Fang, after much anticipation, adding a wealth of new content and features.
