Popular Twitch streamer Sebastian ‘Forsen’ Fors managed to channel his inner Summit1g for a hilarious Molotov disaster in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.

While he’s not a highly-successful CS:GO pro of any kind, Jaryd ‘Summit1g’ Lazar became infamous within the game’s community for his stunning fail at DreamHack Austin back in 2016.

What came to be known as a ‘1G’ involved the hugely popular Twitch streamer dying to his flames while trying to clutch up a crucial round for his Splyce teammates. The moment has followed him ever since – even in games outside of CS:GO – and any streamer who dies to their own flames of in any title get references to Summit and the ‘1G’ meme. 

Twitch: DreamhackSummit’s death has become an iconic moment with CSGO fans despite his lack of success as a pro.

That cruel fate fell upon Forsen during his December 1 stream, as he continued trying his hand at getting to grips with CS:GO. 

With the time left in the round ticking down, he found himself with an open A bombsite on Inferno and jumped out of the apartment spot in order to plant the bomb. In doing so, the streamer tried to create some space for himself by tossing out an incendiary grenade towards the library position.

However, he failed and the flames landed on top of the bombsite, essentially cutting him off. Forsen tried to get the bomb down by began being engulfed by the heat. Even though he tried to run away, the streamer managed to clip the edge of the flames and fell to his death, ending the round.

As the in-game and Twitch chats both filled up with laughter, the Swede didn’t rage or offer up any excuses. Instead, he muttered a subtle “well” and added “I’ve got nothing,” as even he couldn’t help but laugh. 

Of course, Forsen probably isn’t going to take over the mantel of the 1G but it’s a good reminder to always be careful around flames, especially when thousands of people are watching and waiting to meme it.

Fnatic and Counter-Strike legend Freddy ‘KRIMZ’ Johansson has been hit with a VAC ban out of the blue, and nobody seems to know why. 

When punishing cheaters in games like CS:GO, Dota 2, and even Rust, Valve rolls out VAC [Valve anti-cheat] bans that locks down an account – preventing users from playing on another VAC-secured game. 

These bans are, usually, handed out without any warning, and are typically permanent. Though, plenty of players have been able to get them overturned – be it because the ban was wrong in the first place, for example. 

On November 28, CS:GO players and fans alike noticed that Fnatic CS:GO star Freddy ‘KRIMZ’ Johansson had his account struck with a VAC ban – and nobody seems to know just why it happened.

Krimz has played for Fnatic since 2016.

Astralis players Lucas ‘Bubzkji’ Andersen and Nicolai ‘device’ Reedtz were among the first to tweet about KRIMZ’s VAC ban – with the former chalking it down to a likely mistake. 

After word quickly got around about the ban, KRIMZ himself took to Twitter to ask for help from the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive developers in getting the VAC ban removed from his account – again, hinting at a mistake. 

“It seems that my account got vac banned. @CSGO can you fix this asap pls,” he posted shortly after the VAC ban was handed down, attaching a confused face emoji as well as the praying hands. 

As of writing, Krimz’s account still has a VAC ban attached to it, and there’s been no confirmation as to whether or not he’s cheated or if it’s a mistake. Though, there has been speculation about a possible wave surrounding players who use the esportal to find matches. 

If anything changes, be it the ban gets overturned or Valve makes a statement on the matter, we’ll be sure to update this article.
