Kenny ‘kennyS’ Schrub is arguably Counter-Strike’s greatest AWPer of all-time, but appeared to lose his mojo in recent years. Playing under the G2 Esports banner has flipped that on its head, and here’s how.

Considered one of CS:GO’s most mechanically gifted players in history, kennyS was once considered the most lethal marksman in the server during his time with Titan Esports.

After Titan disbanded, Kenny took his talents over to Team Envy, where the French king seemingly lost his way. After an 18-month stint, Schrub upped sticks and moved to G2 Esports — and this is where everything began to fall back into place.

Kenny has revitalized his career under G2.

After a couple of years of restructuring, kennyS now finds himself among a roster of players willing to support his unorthodox style of play.

G2’s in-game leader, Nemanja ‘nexa’ Isaković, is largely accountable for the team’s selfless work which allows the AWP star to thrive.

And with a string of good results under his belt, the 24-year-old’s form is heading back to the kennyS of old. Has Kenny reached his final form? Or is there more to come from the French maestro?

Dexerto explores how Vitality was able to win their first tournament of the year at IEM Beijing, pulling out an incredible comeback against a seemingly unstoppable NaVi. 

French CSGO has made a comeback in the past two years, with Team Vitality and G2 Esports working hard to put France back on the map.
While the performance of the two best teams in the region has been admirable, reaching multiple grand finals throughout the year, they have failed to overcome their opponent on every occasion.
After their performance at Blast Premier Fall Series, Vitality looked to be in good form coming into IEM Beijing-Haidian, especially as the addition of Nabil ‘Nivera’ Benrlitom seemed to add another weapon to the Vitality arsenal.
The Frenchmen showed from the start of the group stages how dangerous they could be and how their new sixth member could change the way they approached games.
The finals of the tournament saw the two highest-rated players in the world face each other, with Oleksandr ‘s1mple Kostyliev taking on Mathieu ‘ZywOo’ Herbaut. Both acting as catalysts for one of the most entertaining series of the year.
The rivalry between the two is only just starting, with a few tournaments still left before the end of the year, both prodigies are looking to claim the title of the best player of 2020.
