Team Liquid pro Jackie ‘Stewie2k’ Yip has hit one of the most impressive CSGO snipes ever during an FPL Circuit match, taking on a 360 no-scope dare from Mohamad ‘m0E’ Assad and pulling it off in style.

Stewie is one of the best CS:GO players in the world. The American superstar has won a major with Cloud9 back in 2018, and was a major part of Team Liquid’s Grand Slam run early in 2019. 

He’s been spamming some FPL-C in the off-season to keep his skills up while also playing with old school names like Erik ‘fl0m’ Flom and m0E for his stream. He’s still showing up as well, pulling off one of the most insane snipes in the game’s history, on command, in front of thousands of fans.

ESLStewie2k has emerged as a late contender for CS:GO’s snipe of the year.

Stewie and his squad were storming ahead in their matchup, and were starting to showboat a bit for some New Years Eve fireworks. With the round in Stewie’s hands, m0E asked one thing of the pro — pull off a 360 no-scope.

Stewie, who was walking on short looking to stop the terrorist from planting, took him up on the challenge. As the player looked to duel Stewie, he pulled out and started his 360, before flicking back to the man on site and snipe him.

The play was made all the more impressive by the fact that it was a no-scope while falling, making the shot wildly inaccurate, and his team went nuts over it.

Stewie’s snipe wasn’t an isolated incident though. Just a few rounds earlier fl0m, landed one of his own in CT spawn, jumping from short before landing the wallbang through the boxes. 

Fl0m did miss the first shot but he got it on the second attempt, with the rest of his team still in awe. 

However, the definite winner of shot of the night was Stewie, getting in just in time for quite possibly the best snipe of 2019. 

Stewie, fl0m, and company ended up winning the game 16-5 to finish the year off with a win. The crew kept playing until well into the early hours, waiting to crest midnight to bring in the new year.

While Stewie had a lot of success to look back on during 2019, he will be hungry for more wins come 2020. His fire to win is still there, as seen by his grinding in the off-season, and he will be looking to prove himself as one of the world’s best when the next Major rolls around in May.

Valve lifts Fnatic star KRIMZ’s mysterious CSGO VAC ban

Valve has lifted the VAC ban on CSGO legend KRIMZ, and although fans think it was probably due to a matchmaking tool, the reasons are still unknown.

The CSGO community stood still on November 28 after Freddy ‘KRIMZ’ Johansson announced he had been VAC banned. Valve never specified why, which made the situation a bit of a mystery.

“It seems that my account got vac banned,” he said. “CSGO can you fix this asap pls.” It sounded like he was probably more confused than anyone else and was adamant he’d done nothing wrong.

CSGO fans think he might have been banned for using a third-party tool named esportal to find matches. However, there has been no official word to support it.

FNATIC coach Andreas “Samuelsson” Samuelsson issued a statement not long after. “We have reached out to Valve, TOs, and third-party community websites… to understand the nature of this unexpected shutdown,” he said. “We have no reason to believe this is the consequence of any intentional use of any illegal program.”

Either way, it didn’t take Valve long to rectify the issue. They’ve already lifted the ban, and it’s been a huge relief to CSGO players and FNATIC fans around the world.

The first one to spill the beans was ‘DonHaci.’ “Krimz has been unbanned,” he said. “His VAC ban has been removed from his Steam page.

KRIMZ’s Steam profile isn’t private, which means anyone can take a look and see for themselves. His fans have been pouring in and leaving comments to celebrate and share their relief.

Still, nobody is more excited than the man himself. KRIMZ made a brief statement on Twitter and expressed his gratitude for having it fixed. “I’m free [motherf**ers], he said. “Thank you CSGO for sorting it out quickly.”

Interestingly, Valve still hasn’t explained why they banned KRIMMZ in the first place. KRIMMZ hasn’t elaborated on it either.

In the end, though, the key takeaway is that it appears to have been a mistake. The CSGO community is thrilled to have its favorite son back.
