Our 94th "Frags from the past" video takes you back to 2004, where Emil "HeatoN" Christensen aces his country-men from HighLand Online.
While the Terrorists breached the ramp defence by killing fisker, Christensen found himself in the lower bombsite to try and stop any attempt of planting there. He did his job perfectly as he wiped out four HLO players near ramps, and managed to score the ace by killing the last enemy under catwalk.
Check it out below...

|Match:|| SK Gaming vs HighLand Online

You guys hate him because of cs go, but talk to anybody who have a clue about cs know that.
Kids should do download some demo before they talk.
Have you ever hear of these names:hyb,medion,kush,bengan?
Do you know old school clans like,eoL,GoL,Dop,RDW?
you kids were still wetting your pants when they won their 1st title.
kids should shut up and read some book before they come here lol.
you cant compare him with f0rest, get_rigth, neo, etc..... im not a fan boy but i think the players from 2008 to 2012 are way better then he was.
You're obviously a newbie who probably started playing a few years ago so please dont talk about things you have no idea about.
Ppls back then who barely didnt have slighest clue about the game, but knew/saw/heard something about this player named HeatoN.
Certainly he wasnt among the most madskilled /rawskilled 'individualists' like potti, etc, but for sure one of the best in CS earliest years to master AK recoil with deadly spraycontrol.
him and Ksharp was the best in 2000-2003
In 2000-2003 was the leap in cs, seeing 1.0 and 1.3. The best in 2000-2001 is higly questionable cause the scene was not that big. Back in 2000 Bullseye and Ksharp got some name in Europe, but back then it was all about zet0r, biggs, finl, schwain and YaK who destroyed the swedes. It was around 2002 when the swedes started taking over.
Did i claim he was among the very best when you define overall raw skills (?) For sure his talents were not like potti's level, for example, HeatoN had other qualities wich let him win more than what finlands CS together ever achieved.
Theres no way, NO WAY in heaven, earth or hell, for that matter a CS player ment more than HeatoN as a whole for swedish Counter-Strike looking back at it. And we all know wich country, by far, is the greatest CS nation ever, consequantly ment most for the competitive CS-scene as an eSport's milestonegame that it is.

When you said: "The most important one for Counter-Strike's history, I'd say." You said wrong.
HeatoN made and keeps making shitloads of money for nice performance. In no way was he ever the best, or even near that, but also nowhere near being the player who brought Sweden to the map.
I was there kid. I played against Nordic Division, Matrix, EYE and NiP. Back then no one gave a fuck how the caller did, how the "sneaker" did or how the midman did. HeatoN had good aim and he was given the frags while the rest of the team got toally ignored and also worked as hell but never got noticed
EDIT: Y U so fanboi??

EDIT: back when HeatoN was starting to get name Sweden was already huge and no one knew HeatoN. When he started to get fame he was this shy nerd who no one knew about. And I mean shy, he was _the nerd_ back then.
You have no idea what you're talking about so just leave it. You failed kid, suck it up

now suck it up, saunafag.
As for HeatoN, anyone around the old days would remember there was SO much hype after NiP 2001 on him and when they went to SK in 2002 everyone was calling HeatoN the best player in the world. I actually remember watching some LAN recorded demo's of CPL Dallas that had DoP guys, 3Dbullseye, SK|NIRee (6th man) and so many other players at the event commenting in all the matches and the topic of HeatoN came up a few times in his matches and how much hype there was on him and how he wasnt living up to the hype. I actually think the pressure got to him at that event because EVERYONE had eyes on him and was expecting so much and were disappointed at least at CPL Dallas.
Its hard to say where he was ranked in the thick of things because there was no individual stats for players back then but he was obviously a really strong player because every team he was on enjoyed so much success over the years.

Most ignorant/hypocrite Community in Ego-Shooter history or eSports in general, even the SC2 one is better, at least they don't judge Legends bad if they choose eSports as a job. (HeatoN clearly had to go for the money, cause it was his money bringer[No, no, you guys don't like money, I see.]. SpawN did the same but can't understand why he isn't so much hated, but maybe cause he didn't say "CS:GO will be bigger/better" - again ignorant Community)
i mean ...every single topic on this site is full of fighting ....regardless of subject.
this community really doesn't deserve this game .
so you met him irl? probably not, you joke.

anyone from the old school is quite capable of becoming a current top 10 player if they really desired to. but they've been there, and moved on.
good for them.
That being said... The team under his leadership is the first and only team to go an entire CPL-year undefeated. Hate as much as you want =)
overrated? damn yes.

Lol, you're playing with the words like the clown in the circus with the little kids.
Pretty good is to compete in the higher level of CS back then. HeatoN won 13 CPL titles you fucking kind of a moron.
Comparing HeatoN/Potti's skills to the one of any top player post 2006 (including cArn, ave and other underated players) is like comparing Pele to Messi/CR7, Pele had much easier opponents, most of them couldn't be considered athetic neither professional today therefore his domination. Messi and CR7 play against top tier athletes with strict workout rutines and prioritizing dedication to their jobs.
Number of achievements of HeatoN against Pentagram or Fnatic 2006: 0

At this point of time Pele dominated because he was just brilliant and noone else could have the same skills as him. If the opponents were so weak, why was only Pele the dominating one? Yes, because he was talented as fuck like f0rest or markeloff in CS1.6
Also if HeatoN was so bad as you say, why he didn't got kicked by the org then? Because a team consists out of 5 players and when 1 player is doing bad all the time he gets punished, but their teamwork was perfect.
And the famous smoke trick against the almighty elemeNt in the CPL Final(!), who did that? HeatoN. And btw: it was the deciderround I don't think a normal player could perform so well in this situation as HeatoN did. He was outstanding admit it.

I'm not saying HeatoN was BAD, I'm saying HeatoN's peak is low for _TODAY's standards_. As I said, he was pretty good back then, I only wouldn't dare to compare him to post 2006 stars like f0rest, Neo, markeloff, etc. He was a top player back then specially in his early years (till 2004) but CS has evolved a lot since he last played competitively.

Looking at 2003's SK domination, how can anyone say that 'the competence was huge'? it wasn't, only a few clans with the same players jumping from one team to another had it all for themselves.
maybe the hype was huge but the competence wasn't.

and I'm pretty sure teams like 3D, SK, NiP and others did watch lots of demos, in fact I remember interviews where most of these teams confirmed watching demos of their rivals.

To me CS was born with teams like wNv, lunatic-hai, project_kr 2005 and PGS 2006 that were way ahead of their time and added a much faster reactive play destroying teams that refused to adapt, (i.e. NiP, Team3D, SK, etc). Before 2006 CS was boring and slow, the CT side had the upper hand and extremely slow holds were the default, there wasn't much more than that.

But "2010 total domination - raping and winning everything" is kinda semi-myth. Look up the detailed statistics of that year (yes they won all 3 tournaments 2010 - what is/was labeled majors at the latest years of Counter-Strike).
For sure top1-team of that year, but look up the true facts, Rly. And you see the "2010 total domination"-statement is not rly the legit truth.
It's best ak of cs history
