Confidence is a great thing in Counter-Strike. For as long as people spend building up their mechanical ability, it can often come down to confidence whether you can pull off a clutch or not. Sometimes it can be hard to separate confidence from arrogance. 

Kristian ‘K0nfig’ Wienecke is blessed and cursed with both sides. Which has helped him excel at taking aim duels, and at times made him equally adept at shooting himself in the foot. This has at times left him on the outskirts of the CS:GO pro scene, but now he’s back and is ready to dominate once again.

After spending over a year as an outcast at OpTic, k0nfig was given a chance at redemption in Jason Lake’s Complexity juggernaut, and the Dane took this chance with open arms. His great performances for the NA org led to them unexpectedly winning the BLAST Premier: Spring 2020 European Finals.

This is the story of Denmark’s outcast prodigy and how he’s redeeming himself with Complexity’s new juggernaut.

How arT’s aggression is leading FURIA’s CSGO charge to site

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.
