Counter-Strike: Global Offensive pro Jake ‘Stewie2k’ Yip had Nicolai ‘dev1ce’ Reedtz steaming from the ears in rage during a tense Faceit Pro League match.

Stewie2k and dev1ce are two of the best CS:GO players in the world and are currently representing top teams, Team Liquid and Astralis respectively, in the StarLadder Berlin Major.

They were battling it out in a Faceit Pro League match just two days before their playoffs match when one kill from Stewie pushed the Dane over the edge and made him completely lose his cool.

Team LiquidStewie2k and Team Liquid took the #1 spot from Astralis, and the two teams have been rivals ever since.

The match, played on Overpass, was incredibly close with a tight 11-10 advantage for dev1ce’s team. Things started to go downhill, however, as they began to fall to a wave of pistols, and the Dane himself was forced to push into connector.

The Astralis player could be heard screaming a frustrated, “What is he [Stewie] fucking doing!?” shortly after, with the kill feed showing him being eliminated by Stewie2k’s CZ75, likely in the smoke criminal’s infamous aggressive fashion.

BIG’s Johannes ‘tabseN’ Wodarz was streaming the game on Twitch and unfortunately didn’t show the confrontation, but definitely enjoyed dev1ce’s reaction as he giggled uncontrollably.

CS:GO fans also enjoyed the reaction, especially with it being so close to the Berlin Major playoffs. “Stewie getting in his head early”, one user said, another added “welp… better start betting on Liquid” -implying that the Danish star is already tilted ahead of their match.

Dev1ce will have a chance to get revenge on Stewie2K on September 6 in the StarLadder Berlin Major quarter-finals, where Astralis face Team Liquid in one of the most anticipated matches of the whole event.

Andrei ‘arT’ Piovezan has led FURIA to the top of NA Counter-Strike thanks not only to his calling but also his ultra-aggressive playstyle. 

Dexerto explores the Brazilian’s signature aggression and how it has defined him as the most offensive player in CSGO history. 

His playstyle slowly leaked into his strategies, making FURIA one of the most aggressive teams in the world: allowing them to become the most successful T-side team over the last few months. 

This was clear during ESL Pro League 11 NA, where arT’s aggressive pushes and misdirection on Inferno led the team to a dominant win against the best NA had to offer. All this while delivering some of the most entertaining CS ever. 

The importance of his dual-role as a IGL and Entry-Fragger is not lost, allowing him to quickly adapt his calling after going first into bombsites. 

ArT has led FURIA to become true contenders on the world stage but now the difficult part begins: keeping ahead of the curve and keep the elements of surprise on his side.
