FaZe vs C9 @ Boston + I had school in like 3 hours when the game ended
your 2., that was the worst feeling ever
vp astralis atlanta 2017 esp being vp fan at that time
OG losing to sAw in Thunderpick World Championship 2023, now all the sAw fanboys think they are better team than us.
NIP vs Apeks at the Paris Major is probably the most pain I have had as a NIP fan since idk when
VP vs Astralis (Atlanta 2017)
fnatic vs LDLC (Jönköping 2014)
The Major final of DH Winter 2014.
NiP were so close to winning the Major... :(
Liquid vs vita at kato 2023
Should've been a 2-0 for vita :(((
SK x C9 - Semifinal Boston Major
gotta be the most painful match I've ever watched
every space soldiers major match
Na`Vi v mTw (WCG 2010)
Maybe mTw will win THIS comeback...? No? Maybe the next one? No?
1 navi faze antwerp
2 nqvi faze cologne
3 navi astralis and navi vita in 2020 finals (choke from 0-2 killed me 2 times in a row...)
G2 vs NAVI - Stockholm Major
For obvious reasons
SAW vs Outsiders - Antwerp Major
Such a heartbreaking loss. They were so close
Liquid vs Astralis Berlin Major 2019
envyus vs fnatic (esl one cologne 2015)
C9 vs imperial
2-2 Rio major
Tbf, I dont use the term like you proposed, but any vp games are painful to watch. I understand why they do that, but man, it is never ending story. Each games feel 3 hr length.
Vit Vs liquid IEM Kato 2023
I could put at least a half dozen IEM Rio 2022 matches, but I'll say the final because I organized a watch party for it at my school and we watched that together instead of a great match. I can't describe how sad I am Outsiders won a major
Some Navi bo5 finals, when they lose from 0-2, and versus ence in semis Kato 2019
Envyus vs Fnatic Cologne 2015 Major Finals...
Envyus choked so hard at 14
Some Final on train, Olof peaked on B as CT up and down on a Ladder but somehow JW or someone lurked in the right Millisecond thru and killed him offguard, B Open, Round lost ... was some critical Round or last dont know anymore, 2016 or something
Ahh and Niko Dgl on Nuke :(
VP vs Astralis Major Atlanta 2017, well u may figure yourself how i felt after that one...
Heroic vs GamerLegion in Paris.
Though I could be suffering from recency bias.
definitely VP vs Astralis eleague finals :-(
Stopped reading at "1. c9 choke vs mouz (rio major)"
Better team beat worse team =/= choke
Nip - faze blast 2022 15-13 :)
Started wathing actively after Stockholm final, these are not in any particular order
1. NiP choke vs FaZe Clan at Blast Copenhagen 2022, they won map 1, had 14-7 lead on map 2 and choked, even when they got 15th and were 3 kills away from the final, they fucked it up because ropz abused pre nerf M4A1
2. Imperial choked both maps in Rio vs Cloud9, would have been epic if C9 was eliminated again like in Antwerp
3. G2 choke Inferno in Katowice 2022, still very competitive tournament but holy shit, NiKo was so bad
4. G2 losing to Vitality when they still had misutaaa at Blast Lisbon, apEX carried that Nuke game and G2's CT sides were bad
and of course every fav team elimination is bad and painful but these came to mind first. Im so glad i didnt see that Outsiders vs SAW game where SAW was less than 1 second away from the Major
Furia 1 x 2 Heroic IEM RIO MAJOR 2022 (I wanted to unalive myself)
Liquid 1 x 2 Heroic ESL Pro S14 (that 1v5 clutch from refresh against Fallen team) (also wanted to unalive)
Furia 0 x 2 MOUZ ESL Pro S18 (Death of the Brazilian Scene in CSGO)
MIBR 0 x 2 Astralis IEM Katowice 2019 ( We didn't win shit after this match)
And a few dozen more defeats that I won't mention, otherwise the list would be too long.
Sharks 15-19 Astralis definitely. meyern losing the 1v1 vs Xyp9x leaving 1 bullet away from death. That was the first time Argentinian players were facing Tier 1 opposition and they were 1 bullet away from beating prime Astralis on Nuke, with a sick performance from Luken, where he dropped 28 frags in regulation.
G2 vs Faze Katowice 22, i just dont understand how it is possible to throw and choke like that
Guardian in epicenter
I was in denial. I was hoping he'd get form back. I was wrong.
Then he joined sampi. They almost made it to rmr. I was sure that he can come back into full form. I was wrong((.
Rip guardian major, undeserved for awp goat
I'm full on hopium now that frozen, goat rifler can bring us one.
Mouz - Faze 2018 Boston
If sunny didnt kill himself/niko didnt clutch, Mouz would probably win the whole thing
G2 vs Navi Stockholm 2021
They choked so hard on Nuke, I think G2 would win mirage if ama would hit every shot with Awp
Rio RMR, VP werent meant to play this event cuz they got like 0.1s defuse
Liquid vs Heroic ESL Pro League aka refrezh clutch
Cloud9 vs Faze Kato 2018 - they choked
C9 vs Mouz Rio 2022 - was their major to win
+Pretty much every Liquid game during 2021
Eleague 2017 major final, cologne 2015 semis, esl new york 2016 final, pgl krakow vp vs immortals
Outsiders vs sAw round 30 on inferno
NaVi vs Ence semifinal at major
Also that match where s1mple tried to knife nitr0 and lost from 15-10
I dunno about CS but one thing I can ensure you:
2014 Germany 7 x 1 Brazil was pain. Every time I see 7x1 anywhere I check if opponents are German, and If they are not, I think like: "Well, even the (let's say, Belgium) team does 7x1 on us. :( 7x11 the same thing. Its just another 1 anyways. xD
Astralis vs NiP after Device went to NIP.
almost every BR CS game in the last 3 years or so
ESL Pro League Season 3 Finals G2 vs Luminosity.
All 5 maps, shox was insane with the clutches, but still lost in OT on inferno.
2. Probably the Eleauge 2017 VP lose. They deserved that major as a chapter closing, but then gla1ve arrived with his sick haircut.
liquid luminosity game where liquid choked twice in a row
every major final I've ever watched, seemingly semis always have better matches
Polish VP vs Astralis ELEAGUE Major 2017 on train. After this everything started to fall apart
Faze vs fnatic katowice bo5 final
Had a big bet on faze who should have rolled them but flusha had a life game with two absurd clutches where he lifted his mouse.
Other than that envyus vs some bulgarian dog team on d2 in 2015 where envy threw a 12-4 lead on ct side, lost 4 asiimovs and got so mad that i threw a tomato at the wall
Vitality choke on ovp against Liquid Kato quarters this year
Vitality Avangar Berlin Major 2019
watching faze lose in boston final. Then again, thats what got me hooked into the pro scene. Eleague production was top notch alright.
vita vs liquid kato 2023 losing 12-0 lead and then that round on mirage where naf kills spinx with one sec left
another one was vita vs ence last epl where zywoo aced two rounds in a row i think and they still lost
Cologne 2022 was a nightmare for me, I didn't ever felt worse than this final, I swear, my body and my mental side was dying, the second must be MLG Columbus 2016
Any russian vs russian match is painful to watch
Every Vp game most boring team to watch
navi vs g2 stockholm final
ig i need not explain it
I was watching Liquid vs LG at MLG columbus, never been so legitimately mad at a CS game in my life. By far the most painful.
Honorable mentions: Liquid vs ENCE IEM Katowice 2019, Cloud9 vs Kinguin ESL One Cologne 2015
Movistar Riders vs Giants , BLAST Madrid Play-In 2019
That vertigo still haunts me.
the list of painful FaZe matches that ive watched is way deeper than you think
I watched antwerp finals live in the arena, and thought that this would be my worst experience back at the time
but antwerp does not come even a little close to how tragic cologne 22 was
8 hours of back and forth only to lose to that twistzz rush A call on round 29 XDD. Never was I so tilted as fuck at navi and definitely faze clan, especially when navi had a 14-13 CT lead on nuke. still a banger grand final for ages to come
honorable mention: 2020 beijing finals, which is hilarious after knowing navi choked another bo5 beforehand lol
4 sure VP vs Astralis - Atlanta 2017 :(
Also VP vs Immortals - Krakow 2017
These two matches broke my heart. I had tickets for the major final in Krakow and I hoped that I would be able to see my team in the final live... It still hurts to this day.
Ence 15-3 choke vs VP at Dust 2
Any FaZe choke, which happens almost every game, so we, FaZe fans, are already used to it.
1. Immortals vs Gambit PGL Krakow 2017
2. Furia vs Avangar Dreamhack Rio 2019
3. Furia vs Heroic IEM Rio 2022
Faze 14-1 choke vs vitality on anubis when I bet on faze prematch
atlanta vp vs astralis if i was a vp fan
ENCE vs Renegades, starladder Berlin major 2019 playoffs
Faze Boston Major lose-Terrible feeling
Faze 0-3 at RIO-You were in dreamworld and suddendly u get punched in the face
MOUZ 2:1 Faze in RMR-Just shocked and sad
Furia losing semifinal to Heroic(If Heroic won that then i wouldnt count that)
Heroic loss to GamerLegion in Major Semifinal
all the matches without xyp9x in astralis
g2 - Fnatic at paris was really bad for me especially after seeing them demolish Furia the day before, to lose to fnatic with the only player stepping up being jks was super dissapointing.
Majority of BIG major qualification matches on LAN where they lost narrowly to opponents…
FNC vs NiP kato 15 final has to be
I dropped my dumbell on my toe while watching Faze vs Vitality on Anubis probably that
atlanta major 2017 final between vp and astralis
Immortals vs Gambit PGL Major Krakow 2017
NiP vs fnatic as you said, Allu got csgoed which lost them d2.
NiP vs Apeks, throwing ancient 14-3 to lose the series.
They also lost a decent lead on vertigo.
VP VS ENCE 3-15 DUST 2 COMEBACK HAHAHA
Lost a few parlays that would have paid 10k+ on the final game
Any of those would be at the top of the list
cadian 5seven push vs gl was pretty painful
Too many Chokequid games to count
I think the worst for me personally was Liquid vs Ence at the major
I seriously thought they had a shot an NA's second major so to get owned by some random fins hurt so bad
C9 vs imperial
5v1 lulquid vs heroic
mlg columbus 16 major final
I couldn't expect navi to lose their pick this way
flamie was real mvp material those days
also I found painful to watch almost every single game c9 played with slemmy during their short stint together and quite often when c9 had that so-called "the colossus"
it was really painful to realize how much money hengryg wasted and ended up with nothing
any furia or ence match since 2018.
they washed my wallet so hard.
g2 vs faze katowice 2022 grand final inferno when ropz aced :(((((((
9z vs VP like 2 years ago...both teams played it down to the last second, i think we had like 85 rounds in the BO3, both teams made annoying mistakes...
fucking mlg columbus semi final.
navi vs ence iem katowice 2019
VP vs Astralis ELEAGUE Major last map
VP should take it any day any week. really painful ending this golden5 VP roster deserved this win so much imo
upd. VP vs SK in EPICENTER was the same in terms of feeling. if i not misstaken VP lost one of matchpoins 4v2 on cbble and after all lost it in close OT
