A bugged spot on Overpass threatened Virtus.Pro’s advantage during an official United Masters League CS:GO match against BIG – making the bomb disappear.

Valve has patched up many holes in their game throughout CS:GO’s life span. Typically these spots eat up everything that falls into their clutches like weapons, utility, and even the T-side’s C-4 objective.

While the discovery of the voids can be hilarious moments in a matchmaking or casual game, it could have terrible repercussions during a competitive match where pros are facing off against each other for cash and other prizes.

That’s exactly what happened in the late stages of VP’s match on the attacking side. As the norm, the T side advanced the bomb to the upper portion of Tunnels when dropping the item to be collected later.

VP proceeded to poke and prod around the map to see where they could get an advantage with the bomb safely behind their control.

Well, after Janusz ‘Snax’ Pogorzelski managed to get an opening AWP kill, the team decided it was time to regroup for a play on the A side of Overpass.

That’s when Snax discovered that the bomb was no longer where the team had last left it.

“Wait a second, where’s the bomb,” a caster can be heard saying.

The bomb has actually glitched through the map and fell down to oblivion without a hope of being retrieved. Since a minute had already elapsed and damage had been dealt, tournament rules dictated that the round had to be played out.

Even with a man-advantage, any intention that VP had of systematically playing out the round was shot since their only way of winning was to completely eliminate the BIG players.

Shortly after the bug, VP players started dying left and right as they were forced to find fights. Luckily, Snax and Michał ‘MICHU’ Müller were able to actually pull off the 2v3 comeback to at least mitigate the damage from the glitch.

VP would eventually lose the match and series 0-2 to BIG, but hopefully the spotlight on the bug leads Valve to patch up the spot sooner than later.

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.
