Superstar footballer and avid gamer, Neymar, pulled off an incredible 1v3 pistol clutch vs ZywOo and shox in CS:GO, getting the entire lobby up on their feet in excitement.

With the current global situation forcing professional athletes to stay home, many of them have turned to gaming and live-streaming in their free time, including the likes of Neymar, whose been grinding CS:GO when he’s not practicing or playing for Paris Saint-Germain and Brazil.

During one of his recent broadcasts, he was matched up against a pretty star-studded team – featuring two of the biggest names in CS:GO, ZywOo and Shox, both of whom play for Team Vitality in Paris, where the Brazilian also plays professionally.

With the first round underway and everyone using pistols, Neymar found himself in a difficult situation, having to defend the bomb while ZywOo, Shox, and Gotaga were all still alive on the other team.

Somehow, someway, the PSG star took down all three enemy players to improbably win the round. Even after his teammate went down and left him in seemingly impossible circumstances, he pistoled down both Gotaga and shox to finish things off, jumping up in excitement after the final kill.

While his teammates were cheering him on, even those on the enemy team were hyped up for Neymar’s clutch, laughing about it in the in-game chat.

Funnily enough, that wasn’t the only wow moment of the match for Neymar; with his squad up 10-4, he victimized ZyWoo again, this time in humiliating fashion – sneaking up behind the Frenchman and slicing him up with a knife.

Luckily, fans were able to see all of this from Neymar’s POV, including his awesome reactions to both moments. If it happened a couple of weeks ago, when his Twitch account was suspended, maybe we don’t get to watch all of this action unfold.

The temporary ban was issued after Neymar had accidentally leaked his Brazilian teammate Richarlison’s personal phone number.

Because the VoD of that stream never got deleted, Twitch had no choice but to push the punishment through, despite there being several weeks between the two incidents.

A new report from a Finnish newspaper has suggested that VAC banned CSGO pro Elias ‘Jamppi⁠’ Olkkonen is considering a switch to Valorant as he steps down from ENCE. 

For a few year, Jamppi has been considered as one of Counter-Strike’s biggest rising stars. The 19-year-old was set to join the OG roster following their step into CS:GO, however, that move fell through.

The problem is, the Finnish star has a VAC ban to his name, so, he can’t play in CS:GO’s premier events – the Majors – even though a number of tournament organizers have allowed him to play in their own events.

With him and his family contesting the ban, Jamppi joined ENCE in the hopes that, at some point, he’d be able to play at Majors. However, there have been a few missteps in his argument, and he hasn’t come any closer to having the VAC ban taken away. That, alongside some roster turmoil with ENCE, has got him seemingly considering his options.

Jamppi was VAC banned in 2015 at the age of 14.

According to a report from the Finnish newspaper Ilta-Sanomat, the 19-year-old is apparently considering a switch to VALORANT as ENCE considers a number of roster moves.

It comes after a report from DBLTap’s Jarek ‘DeKay’ Lewis stated that ENCE were in discussions with Danish duo Marco ‘Snappi’ Pfeiffer and Thomas ‘TMB’ Bundsbæk about joining up with their active lineup alongside Aleksi ‘allu⁠’ Jalli, Joonas ‘doto⁠’ Forss, and Tuomas ‘SADDYX⁠’ Louhimaa.

That, ultimately, leaves Jamppi without a spot as the CS:GO 2021 season starts to ramp up in preparation for the PGL Stockholm Major in October.

Jamppi is considering a switch to VALORANT, according to reports.

If he decides to go to VALORANT, as IS reports, Jamppi would join a list of other CS:GO pros who have been banned from playing at a Major – including Joshua ‘steel’ Nissan and Braxton ‘Swag’ Pierce.

As for where he could go, well, there are a few teams who would certainly make space for the 19-year-old – especially if he could show as much promise in the Riot Games shooter as he does in CS:GO. So, we’ll just have to wait and see.
