Video: Xyp9x - 13 1vX wins at IEM

To commemorate Andreas "Xyp9x" Højsleth's record-breaking 13 1vX wins at a big event,'s moviemaker Marcos "proutounz" Soares put together a four-minute video containing all of the Danes clutches at IEM Katowice 2017.

Andreas "Xyp9x" Højsleth's individual contributions seemed to be on the rise since Astralis changed their in-game leader to Lukas "gla1ve" Rossander, but the 21-year-old hit peak from in Katowice as he broke the record for 1vX situations wins at a big event, previously held by Janusz "Snax" Pogorzelski.

To start it off, Xyp9x's 1vX wins denied OpTic a chance to get an upset win in the opener, he then secured crucial rounds in Astralis' overtime wins over fnatic and NiP and added a couple more in the playoffs against Natus Vincere and FaZe.

from BOT to GOD
2017-03-13 22:33
yeee, as every astralis player, from tier3 to tier1 in one month
2017-03-13 23:03
they were always top players and always tier 1. they had a short slump where they lost faith in their leader but they always were one of the best
2017-03-13 23:15
when did you start to watch cs?
2017-03-13 23:16
yesterday of course
2017-03-13 23:19
ahh ok
2017-03-13 23:25
Lol'd when did you start? Sounds like you are a newcomer
2017-03-14 00:12
u are danish kid so expected answer
2017-03-14 00:37
Dude, Astralis/ex-TSM/ex-dignitas have been a top 5 team since 2013. They have had some slumps here and there but, they have qualified for every single major playoffs expect the first 1 where they were not a team. So no, they didn't you just get good in 1 month. They had a increase in performance and started to win more in the spand of a couple of months yea
2017-03-15 10:36
Device = Tier 1 2013 , Dupreeh = Tier 1 2013 , Gla1ve = tier 2 2014 - 2015 Tier 1 2016 - 17 Tier 3 Players ? Wut ? TSM - Dig - Astralis top10 team since 2013...
2017-03-21 14:35
throwing, are you baiting??? astralis was first dignitas, then team SOLOMID, then Quistionmark and now Astralis. XYP9X HAVE BEEN IN THE CORE LINEUP EVER SINCE DAY ONE. and the teams worst world ranking ever was last year when kjearbye was joining astralis, i think in late summer they was ranked 12th best team in the world, THAT IS THE FUCKING WEAKEST THEY HAVE EVER BEEN. first lineup, xyp9X, device, dupreeh, fetish, cajunb, second lineup, xyp9x, device, dupreeh, Karrigan, cajunb. third lineup, xyp9s, device, dupreeh, karrigan, kjaerbye. 4th lineup, xyp9s, device, dupreeh, glaive, kjaerbye. ranked no 1 with team.solomid and Astralis. ranked 3th and 4th with dignitas and Quistionmark. xyp9s was the best support in the world when dignitas was top3, xyp9s was still top10 support player when they was #no1 world with team.solomid - but in TSM he was becoming a GODLIKE clutch king, like top10 clutchmaster already in TSM. yes xyp9s was silent when they leaved TSM and in the making of astralis, because xyp9s is a very calm player who performs best in safe environment - look at him, he is the silent, peacemaster.. yes like a real clutchmaster, always calm, and no pulse.. xyp9x was out of top10 with fnatic in the start of cs.go in 2012/2013 with xyp9x, friis, moddi, karrigan, trace. so from late 2013/14 until 2017 NOW - xyp9s have been in a top10 team, and 2014, 2015 he was the godlike support player with the maybe best K/D together with krimz and nbk... xypn9s have always been a monster talent, from the start he was only playing against the best players and teams, so he got 1000 official matches and only against the best.. it is insane when you think back to cs.go start, xyp9s signed a conctract with fnatic, so xyp9s, karrigan, NiP and the golden5 was the first pro players in cs.go. so dont ever fucking tell me or no one, that xyp9s and astralis is cheating, or is becoming no1 in like one month... xyp9s is so talented, he have been a tier1 player and in a tier1 team since 2013 until 2017.... have noobs dont know shit... xyp9s is the most loyal player in cs.go. so calm, so respectful.. the perfect team player, and you can trust him... everyone knows deep in your hearts that xyp9x dont cheat
2017-03-14 00:26
1. bro its hltv forum 2. xyp9x is cheating or most lucky guy that ever walked on earth, and i think hes cheating, on major he didnt have even 30% of those smoke kills, he was spraying trough smokes like noob sometimes, everyone knows u cant cheat on major cos they will even check ur pants for cheats, but on every other lan or online match hes hitting 95% shots trough smokes
2017-03-14 00:40
come on, you have to do better? just bring me some small evidence?? if xyp9x is cheating, where is the real aimlocks? and why is xyp9x stats not increased in k/d, from when he peaked in 2014/15 with dignitas, remember xyp9x with 1.15 k/d over a long period. now he is peaking again, and now it is 1.10 k/d? insane when xyp9x have played pro since 2012, and you got no evidence, it is 1000 matches played
2017-03-14 02:24
its just insane for me that this guy shot 100% bullets trough smokes, noone knows wtf is going on, me too, im not judgin im just saying that its so fking strange for anyone who plays this gime for long time, u are danish i cant expect from u to agree

Denmark U w0t m8? 
astralis lineup has always been tier 1, one of the only teams who's been in every major playoffs. The only reason you think they'd become better is becacuse they finally got a leadership that know how to use the players properly in tight situations
2017-03-14 08:22
you clearly have no clue what you're talking about.

2017-03-14 19:33
it's funny how people can easily forget about GeT_RiGhT and his ability to clutch this dude used to win every god damn clutch, he had the highest ratio of won 1vs2's stfu nab

i appreciate the effort and additional editing, but sometimes frags came too fast after introduction, so you cant even get the grasp on what's the current situation is. Such approach more fitting to regular fragmovies but to showcase clutch moments you need different pacing, in best moments maybe show how he reacts when his teammates die, toggle x-ray to show how he reads enemy movements etc. . anyways, good vid

2017-03-13 22:56
this video is actually really well done (apart from the annoying csgofast bullshit) and legit ROFL at karrigans pic XD unfortunately it really sounds more exciting than it is. some of the kills shown in between the clutches are actually more impressive than the actual clutches. sure props to xyp for pulling it off this consistently but its not really that special winning a 1v2 afterplant when they dont have much time/dunno where u are/dont have utility, ya feel me?
2017-03-13 23:03
Consistency is the key point here. If you have a guy that can consistently win 1v1s and occasionally clutch out 1v2s and 1v3s, then he's invaluable to your team.
2017-03-14 00:16
i know, but this kind of shit doesnt necessarily make for a great frag movie. if u look for example at the round where he comes out A halls on mirage and kills guardian in the back, u probably need to see the whole round to see how he got to that spot to fully appreciate the clutch.

LUL joelz has no place in this context. Hunden is smart, but obviously not smart enough to compete with the best.

18 months ago some1 made a topic about xyp9x and lots of people said that he's bad and always last in scoreboard. When I said "xyp is must have in any team" people were laughing at me. Told ya. Xyp is a "must have" just like Krimz was "must have" in "fnatic era".

best edit HLTV's put out in some time, great job. Amazing play by Xyp. He's been a low-key god ever since 2012, I'm glad he's finally getting the recognition he deserves. Hiko really shit the bed in a lot of those late round situations in the train game. He did not fit into that roster at all

half of these clutches were vs optic on train which they suck on, the other half is xypnix winning the afterplant after his team did the work just by sitting around a corner and waiting for the other guys to try to defuse without checking the site first, oh and astralis fucking cheat
2017-03-15 08:18
Mad lul
2017-03-17 03:29
