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.

Christopher ‘GeT_RiGhT’ Alesund has announced his departure from professional Counter-Strike, as he moves to Twitch streaming full-time. 

2021 has just got started and Sweden are already stealing the show. Just days after PGL announced the Stockholm Major, GeT_RiGhT has decided to call time on his legendary competitive career.

During an exclusive interview with Dexerto, the 30-year-old discusses the career highs and lows, his battle with Crohn’s disease and what the future holds for the Swedish titan.

Counter-Strike’s dynamic duo is no more.

The Swede has a CS legacy like no other, but an integral part of those wins and losses was his partnership with countryman Patrik ‘f0rest’ Lindberg. The two share a long list of tournament wins together, including the coveted Major.

The two Counter-Strike behemoths have played together for over a decade, and it’s clear that the end of this partnership is one of the most emotional aspects of GeT_RiGhT’s retirement.

“It’s been a rollercoaster, but at the same time, it’s been a beautiful ride.” Alesund goes on to describe their partnership as “the biggest highlight” of his career.

CSGO & Crohn’s: A battle worth fighting

GeT_RiGhT’s battle with Crohn’s is a perplexing one.

It may shock a lot of people, but GeT RiGhT describes living with the disease as being “one of the best things that ever happened” to him, as well as one of the worst ones.

He describes his lifelong battle with the stomach pain that accompanies the illness, but goes on to explain that he’s thankful, as the official diagnosis brought with it a sense of both physical and mental relief.

In terms of playing CS, however, he describes it as “horrible.” The associated pain, alongside weight and blood loss meant that focusing on the game became a trial all in its own. After asking himself whether it was worth risking his health, his response shows a mixed bag of emotions. “Yes and no really,” he admitted, as the pro player life and its fandom are always worth it, but the two day bedridden recovery period certainly has left a scar.

What’s next for GeT_RiGhT? We can’t wait to find out.

It’s important to note that the Swedish legend will not be leaving CS. He sees the game as home, explaining: “I grew up in the scene and I’ll do anything it takes to help it grow.”

While he admits he can’t go into exact details about his future plans, he sees Twitch and content creation as a “competition on another level,” as he explores a plethora of games such as League of Legends and Warzone with more creative freedom.

GeT_RiGhT explored his excitement for Valorant, but clarified that he’s “not going to become a professional Valorant player.” With that said, he does believe that the game “has huge potential to overtake CS:GO” at some point in down the line.


Throughout this entire interview, you get a sense that the Valorant pro (sorry Chris, we had to) is in the best place he’s ever been. We’ll be excited to see where his streaming career takes him, whether it’s Riot’s Future Earth or otherwise. So keep an eye out, he’s not going anywhere anytime soon!
