2016-08-18 16:03
Well HUEHUE is not a team it is a mix of random people that I really don't care about that much because I got invited to play with them. Specially when everyone is responsible for their own actions this doesn't bother me. Many people got caught in pro scene also if you don't remember KQLY, emilio and many more but people who played with them didn't knew sh*t so...
2016-08-18 16:32
now i guess u know haha/ u fucking trashkid cant even qualify for fpl-c with cheats
2016-09-02 13:00
Yeah I heard how you cry and talk sh*t in discord when the vote was happening that was funny to read chats because I have seen enough of them from various people. I mean you are bad even in FPL everyone is making jokes out of you and you just licking their asses to be friends and keep in there. You are famous for your crying and ass licking but besides that you are nothing. By the way thank you for Balkan Championship Season 3 spot I remember how you cried and how easy it was for my team. GL & PEACE.

Your team? You even then played with a cheater with 500hr account from a German IP and got disqualified due to it prnt.sc/agn5fp , you have a long fucking rep of playing with cheaters, now again in another qualifier. Even in that Balkan Championship you had the organizer reverse the decision even when it didn't follow the rules posted. So lets not talk about all your shady actions and history, when you even played with the cheating faceit admins Mistor, Traumspieler, Wazon etc... Well, i got into FPL, you can't get into FPL-C even, thats enough to show your personality. Plus on top of playing with cheaters, nobody wanted to play with you in FPL-Qualifier due to how toxic and bad you are. Even players from your own country confirm this. ;)
2016-08-18 16:56
My team. Cheater ? Hahaha damn you are delusional it was Freestyle playing because he is from Germany. We got DQ because you were crying 24-7 and typing to everyone like you always do but in the end we managed to overcome your crying. Rules were 3 people from Balkan region I mean Loba you are delusion fuck*d up kid please just get lost. Hahaha I played ? Damn you are funny I got invited to many lobbies and etc. and I really don't care where I get invited to be honest as I come just to play. But you are the most funniest person on community when it comes to crying and etc... Yeah you got by luck in FPL like most of the people. It is clear that you don't have good skill set and you are pretty low skilled player. I can't because of you crying to admins 24-7. Yeah because most of the people in FPL-C were bad as fuck only few of them were fine. They confirm this ? I don't care about toxic personality as I have decent skill set to get away with. :)

Arguments = crying, makes sense only to brainwashed kids as yourself. If the rules were 3 people from Balkan, why were the IP's outside of Balkan forbidden to enter the match, but you had to use VPN? Which the Faceit admins confirmed and then disqualified you. If the rules were 3, why would they disqualify you and then the organizer himself (which is a friend of you guys), qualify you back in? Why was Freestyler playing from an alt 500hr account and not his own one? And ye, i don't have the skill set to be in FPL, but still getting accused of cheating all the time by the same players in FPL and watching my demos on stream and making topic about me cheating. ;) And yes, I am lowskilled: igcdn-photos-d-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak.. Cya noob, go play matchmaking or faceit with cheaters boosting you. ;)

Well, i wasn't showing the winrate since its not important that much, especially when you compare a winrate of someone with 600 games and someone with 2,300 games. ;) I was showing that I am FPL rank 1. ;)

2016-08-18 21:42
don't worry mate, noone will find out ;) hope you enjoy your 200 euros which will be enough for the next 6 months =) must be a sad life to throw for money and not playing for the sport...
2016-08-18 21:44
Lmao, if you think someone would throw for 200 euros, you should check yourself before you rekt yourself.

so you're saying you got more from that throw? thanks for the info mate. invest it in some education ;)
2016-08-18 21:52
No, you`re stupid. I just said that person who would throw for 200 euros would be an idiot. 200 doesn`t outweight the risk, so risking everything you got for 200 euros would be dumb as fuck. By the way, since you can`t handle loosing your precious money, you might want to consider not betting? Peace.
2016-08-18 21:55
which risks? like you or someone from your shitty non existent nation would ever achieve anything... what else do you dream at nights? i dont bet at all or to be completely honest with you stopped betting 2 years ago when almost every east country team got accepted at csgolounge and started to throw. for example players like 1uke. but nt mate ;)
2016-08-18 21:59
You almost hurt my feelings, next time maybe. And what the fuck do you expect from teams that are not tier 1? That CSGOLOUNGE odds represent teams chance of winning the game? Grow a pair and get over it, not everyone is throwing.
2016-08-18 22:04
i made good money betting on csgo and other sports. so i know how to use odds in my favour ;) i never said that it represnt the chances of a team to win. true, not everyone is throwing, as everyone can lose. however you were pretty obvious today ;) have a nice life with your earnings. hope you enjoy it to throw for some bucks. and btw. epsilon, gBots, 1uke, ibp and some others threw matches for less than 200 euros per player. gn8
2016-08-18 22:10
Cool that you have that kind of inside information, but noone threw today so sit down, peace, goodnight, one love, ja rule

Italy claim that Nemanja "N0sferatu" Pejovic of Montenegro turned on his cheats after dropping from the server two times during the first map. They also suspect that Milos "GIGI" Rackovic was cheating as well. GL with that boys
2016-08-18 17:42
Innocent until proven guilty. Gigi is talented player that unfortunately doesn't have quality internet connection or teammates to fulfill his full potential. Everything that he accomplished in his gaming life was through full dedication. You can sit by his side for what I care but you will never catch him cheating. He has top gear, experience and talent, so yeah he is cheating compared to mediocre players.
