Summit1g’s return to CS:GO surprises everyone with insane triple kill

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive on Twitch in recent times, but this incredible triple kill proves that he hasn’t lost a step. 

The popular streamer, who has over 3.8 million followers on the platform, decided to take a break from GTA RP and return to CS:GO for a few games during a stream on May 16.

His return didn’t disappoint viewers, either, after pulling off one of his most impressive plays for quite some time – ripping through three players in the space of about five seconds.

ValveSummit1g was playing on the Inferno map, landing this impressive play in CS:GO.

The impressive play came just after the streamer noted that the opponents hadn’t already used flashbangs to stop his team from repeatedly going to the same location, but seemed to have spoken too soon as he was flashed out not once, but twice.

Just moments later, the team popped a flash at Summit1g, which looked to be causing some problems, but he soon responded with some inch perfect shots. Peaking to the right, behind a wall, the streamer hit two players with his AWP, before peaking to the left and taking out the third player – all with quickscopes.

His chat was impressed too, and a smirking Summit1g responded with a cheeky comment of his own. “isn’t this normal? Come on, we always play like this chat. Duh!” he said, as the shocked viewers flooded the chat with messages.

In reality, this is quite different from what his viewers have been seeing from Summit in recent times, as he has been rotating between Sea of Thieves, Apex Legends, and Grand Theft Auto RP as his main streaming titles for the last few months.

Summit’s CS:GO career was cut short, but made famous by his humiliating molotov fail, where he failed to clutch a round despite killing all enemies, because he walked into the flames of his own molly – and the opposing team brought it back from match point to win the series.

Whether or not this will be the last we see of the streamer playing CS:GO for a while remains to be seen, but it’s always nice to see him make a return. Especially, when he’s playing like this.

HenryG explains Cloud9’s CSGO player salaries after $400k floppy deal

Cloud9 have now confirmed that Ricky ‘floppy’ Kemery is the fourth player of their self-proclaimed CS:GO “colossus” roster, in a deal worth over $400,000, bringing their total to around $4 million in player contracts, with another two players still to go.

Floppy joined Cloud9 from ATK in January, and is now transitioning to the new ‘colossus’ roster alongside ALEX, mezii, and woxic.

The colossus began with the signing of ALEX from Vitality, whose deal is worth $1.65 million. He was joined by fellow brit Mezii on a $426,000 deal. Then, woxic was added from mousesports, in another deal surpassing the $1m mark, at $1,365,000.

This latest deal for floppy takes the total value of this 4-man squad to $3.87 million, and with two players to go (GM Henry  ‘HenryG’ Greer has plans for a six-player roster), is set to surpass the $4 million mark.

Since HenryG’s move from casting into a management role at C9, he has aimed to shake-up the traditionally opaque nature of esports transfer dealings.

In each of the four signings, Greer has confirmed the length of the player’s contract, and it’s total value over that period. All four players announced so far have been signed to three-year deals.

After the floppy announcement, Greer clarified on Twitter that despite the lower total value of deals for floppy and Mezii (compared to ALEX and woxic), each player’s deal is negotiated on an individual basis.

“Ricky has received a pay increase from his previous contract and that will be reviewed each year of his stay,” he concludes.

Presumably, salaries could increase based on performance metrics or other value added to the brand by the player, or as thanks for loyalty to the team.

After he was confirmed as the GM of Cloud9, Greer told Dexerto: “My plans for this team are certainly ambitious. I wouldn’t be involved in any sort of General Manager role unless I had absolute full control of the roster and direction we plan to head.

HenryG is now at the helm of Cloud9’s CS:GO venture.

“C9 have entrusted me with their entire CS:GO dynasty and, honestly, I think that’s one of the boldest moves any org has made in a long time.”

HenryG and Cloud9’s new approach to player deals could very well set off a new trend in CS:GO and esports generally, though for now, they remain on solitary ground.
