Robin ‘flusha’ Rönnquist is back to his old ways, pulling off clutch plays for Counter-Strike juggernaut.

With their backs against the wall facing Evil Geniuses in the Winner’s Finals of the StarSeries Season 8 event, flusha needed to create some more magic to give his team a fighting chance. He did just that, and tarik couldn’t believe it.

It’s easy to see why tarik got frustrated. flusha hits an unreal noscope onto Cvetelin ‘CeRq’ Dimitrov, and then uses the smoke grenade he tossed to get into prime position to take out tarik who’s up on the boxes on A site of Inferno.

Commonly referred to as Señor VAC, flusha is no stranger to frustrating his opponents. Throughout his career he’s had to deal with all manner of allegations that he is cheating, even going so far as to include a separate webcam on streams to show his mouse movement.

Flusha was released from Fnatic back in September of 2018, and found himself overseas on the Cloud9 roster alongside Maikil ‘Golden’ Selim. 

Alongside Will ‘RUSH’ Wierzba, Fabien ‘kioShiMa’ Fiey and Timothy ‘autimatic’ Ta, that version of the C9 roster drastically underperformed, and flusha’s time with C9 ended with him opting to take an extended break.

As flusha returned from break and returned to Fnatic, the Swedish organization acquired Golden from Cloud9 on a loan, reuniting them with FNATIC legends Freddy ‘KRMIZ’ Johansson and Jesper ‘JW’ Wecksell, as well as the young, very promising talent Ludvig ‘Brollan’ Brolin. They won DreamHack Malmo in their very first event together.

In the clip, you can see Evil Geniuses’ coach Chet ‘ImAPet’ Singh do his best to calm down tarik, and it appears that whatever he said worked, as EG held off the Fnatic comeback to win the map, and take the series 2-1.

It’s not easy to come back from tilt, but tarik and the rest of EG did just that, and punched their ticket to the grand finals of StarSeries S8.

Fnatic have a chance at redemption, if they beat the winner of FURIA and Rengades, You can follow all the action and results on our StarSeries Season 8 coverage hub.

FaZe Clan are reportedly eyeing a reunion with mousesports’ in-game leader Finn ‘karrigan’ Andersen as a replacement for recently-departed CS:GO star Nikola ‘NiKo’ Kovač.

According to The Clutch, FaZe has been interested in the Danish-German who has an expiring contract with mousesports in 2021. The org could decide to pull the trigger on a deal now with a likely buyout, or avoid a transfer fee all together when karrigan hits the free market in March.

It’s said Brazilian star Marcelo ‘coldzera’ David has been pushing for karrigan’s signing ever since NiKo left to join his cousin Nemanja ‘huNter-’ Kovač on G2 in late October.

Coldzera has been taking over IGL responsibilities in the meantime, and is lobbying the organization to fill in the spot with a strong pick like mousesports’ general.

Karrigan could re-sign with mousesports or try his hand again with FaZe Clan.

Coming into the year, mousesports had been one of the top teams in the world. Between November 2019 and February 2020, they had secured top 2 finishes in every event they participated in.

They’ve struggled in the online era, and that’s even before Özgür ‘woxic’ Eker was benched in August, eventually signing with Cloud9. Mouse’s developmental player, Aurimas ‘Bymas’ Pipiras, was promoted to the starting line, completing karrigan’s five-man team.

Now he has a chance to pick between his on-again-off-again org since 2010, or a FaZe Clan team that kicked him in the past just to immediately regret it soon after.

It’s not to say that both teams can’t still turn around their fate. While on the lookout for a permanent fifth, Olof ‘olofmeister’ Gustafsson has been subbing in the FaZe lineup and are now in the playoffs at IEM Beijing-Haidian Europe 2020.

Going back to FaZe would reunite karrigan with longtime friend, rain.

Should he go back, Karrigan would replace olof and reunite with close friend Håvard ‘rain’ Nygaard, the only remnant of the FaZe Clan team he left behind in 2018.

Meanwhile, mousesports still has impressive players like David ‘frozen’ Čerňanský, Chris ‘chrisJ’ de Jong, and star talent Robin ‘ropz’ Kool.

Karrigan, 30, has a wealth of tactical ingenuity as well as a strong rifle and he’s proven it in the past, making him a valuable asset for all interested parties.
