Team Liquid’s Jake ‘Stewie2K’ Yip is becoming CS:GO’s king of trash talk after weeks of unrivaled smack talk both online and on LAN.

Stewie2k has been a vital part of Team Liquid’s rise to the top, consistently putting out top performances to secure his team vital victories. However, the American hasn’t just been winning in-game - he's also been dominating the Counter-Strike trash talk game.

In June, Stewie2k received criticism for some hilarious trash talk where he yelled at his ex-teammate Marcelo ‘coldzera’ David, asking: “How mad are you?” during an intense game. This didn’t deter the young American, instead, he's decided to turn up the heat on his peers with some brilliant quips.

Just before their match at BLAST Pro Series Los Angeles, Stewie2k fired a very creative shot at the whole MiBR organization, replying to one of their tweets with “UH VAI MORRER”. This phrase is a popular chant in Brazil, which translates to “You’re going to die” and is often used by fans at sporting events to intimidate the opposition. 

Of course, Stewie2k added some of his signature personality to the tweet with a cheeky smiley face emoji.

Later in the event, Stewie2k still hadn’t had enough. This time he turned his eyes to his grand-finals opponent Nikola ‘NiKo’ Kovač.

“Bring your form bitch because we coming for that revenge,” wrote Stewie2k, clearly feeling confident before a main stage showdown with FaZe Clan. 

The American’s trash talk extends to the best players and biggest events, with Stewie2k taunting Oleksandr ‘s1mple’ Kostyliev at ESL One Cologne. He tweeted at s1mple telling him that only the best team wins, and that’s why he was going to win when they faced off - a prediction which proved to be accurate. 

Stewie2k was also up to his antics a few weeks before that at the ESL Pro League Finals, poking fun at Kenny ‘kennyS’ Schrub with an old picture of the two players hugging, stating that “It ain't going to be so pretty today brotha”. He lived up to his words as it wasn’t pretty at all, with Liquid destroying G2 3-1 in the finals.

All this trash talk is a refreshing change to the mostly professional and calm Counter-Strike scene. It’s always great to see players throwing in some attitude and making games that much more exciting, especially when it’s at the highest level, and Stewie2k shows no signs of stopping anytime soon.
