Danish veteran Peter ‘dupreeh’ Rasmussen has etched his name into CS:GO’s history books after Vitality booked a spot at the BLAST Paris Major.

As Vitality beat BIG 2-1 in the European RMR B tournament to qualify for the Paris event, dupreeh kept his perfect record of Major appearances intact and became the only player to qualify for all 19 CS:GO Majors.

The Paris Major will be the final Valve-sponsored tournament to be played in CS:GO. The ensuing Majors will be played in Counter-Strike 2 (which will be released sometime in the summer), starting with PGL Major Copenhagen in 2024.

“It feels special, I’m not going to deny it,” he said after the match. “Making it to all 19 is pretty unique and something no one can ever recreate. The game is complete, now I can uninstall [laughs].”
