BIG Clan player Tizian “tiziaN” Feldbusch pulled off such a ridiculous pistol kill at the FACEIT London Major, the casters couldn’t actually believe it had happened.

In the main qualifying stage of the London Major, BIG Clan were facing Australian team Renegades in their opening match, and tiziaN started it off with a bang.

In the opening round of the match, played on Overpass, all players started with the basic pistol set up, and tiziaN and co. were all equipped with the silenced USP, used on the CT side.

tiziaN immediately got to the spot behind barrel’s at the B site, and proceeded to duck up and down while dispatching of opponents with lightning quick speed.

Casting duo James “JZFB” Bardolph and Daniel “DDK” Kapadia didn’t even immediately notice that tiziaN had in fact got a kill in the engagement, as his flick shot was so insanely fast but masterfully accurate.

In an interview with HLTV following the match, tiziaN explained that he had in fact practiced the shot, so it wasn’t just blind luck.

“I have actually practiced it, I don’t know, three or four times, but I wasn’t planning on doing that shot, you know. But I guess that it’s easier for me to land the hard shots.”

A replay shows the kill in slow motion, but even then it still looks fast – and the casters are still in disbelief.

It was a very strong start for the team that surprised at ESL One Cologne, where they made it to the grand final in front of a passionate home crowd, although they were ultimately defeated by Na’Vi.

They took the match against Renegades 16-6, and although Johannes “tabseN” Wodarz and Fatih “gob b” Dayik were the standout players for BIG, tiziaN’s kill was undoubtedly the highlight play of not only the match, but the entire Major so far.

They will need to find themselves amongst the top eight teams in the New Challengers Stage, which will secure them a spot in the New Legends Stage, starting on September 12.


S1mple banned again on Twitch for fourth time over “aggression”

CS:GO star Oleksandr ‘s1mple’ Kostyliev has apparently been banned again on Twitch, for his fourth time in total on the platform.

The Ukrainian is the star of Natus Vincere’s CSGO squad and generally considered one of the best CS:GO players in the entire world, but even that isn’t enough to save you from the wrath of Twitch mods.

S1mple is no stranger to temporary bans from the site, and it seems he added to his tally again on Oct. 30, with his channel being taken offline out of nowhere.

It seems that like in the past, the pro has once again been banned for using a slur while streaming, but this latest episode isn’t quite like the others.

Shortly after news of the ban dropped, s1mple Tweeted that he was banned for using a Russian slur, but he claims he only said it because he was upset with another player for saying it on his stream.

“It’s funny that I get banned for aggression towards a person that says the word “Pidor” and specifically tries to ban me on the platform,” he wrote. “I try to condemn him for this and say the forbidden word because I have a negative attitude towards it (because of rules).”

While s1mple filled fans in on why he was banned, he didn’t mention how long he would be off of the platform for. Looking at his past infractions though, and it’s safe to say he’s probably looking at a 7-day break, at the very least.

The site has been known to ban repeat offenders for longer if they continue to get in hot water for the same thing, but considering how big of a name s1mple is and the circumstances surrounding this particular incident, it’s hard to say.

A good number of his fans noted that Twitch was quick to ban the Na’Vi pro after he slipped up, but still haven’t taken action against any one of the countless channels that rebroadcast s1mple’s streams to try and steal viewers.

Still, the pro doesn’t seem so much bothered by the ban as he does annoyed, which makes sense because he doesn’t really need to stream so to speak, considering all the money he’s made playing CS:GO professionally. That doesn’t really help his fans though, who will have to find someone else to watch while they wait for his return.
