After 1260 combined votes, 4 stages and 6 polls, the HLTV Play of the Decade award belongs to ChrisJ for his Mirage AWP ace!
The final poll got 603 votes, way more than I expected, mainly because I spammed it on other threads, and xms was incredibly close to winning. Both finalists kept stealing the lead off each other, but eventually ChrisJ pulled ahead at the very end by just 11 votes.
Below you can find a shortened summary of the whole contest. If you want to see the polls or the video links, you can go to their respective threads linked at the end of this thread.
Also, people were saying to me how these two could be in the final, and that another play should’ve won, even though those plays were part of the contest and were already eliminated. So if you feel the same way, check.
