I'm playing since 98 but I'm not following the competitive scene since 98. You're playing since 2004 and doesn't know who is this guy. Ok, maybe you don't remember his nickname, but you know what was United5 at least?
If you don't remember or don't know what is u5, you can't say "Legend from?".
If you remember the United5, the right reaction is: I don't remember him, but if he was an u5 player, he probably knows a lot of CS.
He was playing CPLs before you start playing the game. The golden era of CS.
