Defining Moments: fnatic vs. Vega Squadron (JW)

A breaking point in the game between fnatic and Vega Squadron was Jesper "JW" Wecksell's 1v3 clutch spraydown, which we revisited in another edition of Defining Moments.

Following a bleak CT side, fnatic found themselves 10-5 down to Vega Squadron at halftime. Richard "Xizt" Landström's squad started coming back as Terrorists, starting with a pistol win. However, after winning four consecutive rounds, the game became back-and-forth, with both team's economies being fragile as the score was 12-10.

fnatic ended up hitting B in that round, creating a 3v3 afterplant situation, but Vega Squadron got the first two kills, leaving JW in a 1v3. The 23-year-old then took down all three opposing players with a sneaky smoke play and some immaculate spray control, winning the round for his team and allowing fnatic to close out the game 16-14.

You must be fucking retarded for not understanding how a computer works. You probably think it's a magic box. Can you deliver concrete proof that the game malfunctioned? No? That kind of hit detection error would've been fixed a few hours after release. The ways you fanboys go to defend your idols are pathetic. He did something that fucked up his shot. Maybe overflicked a few pixels, who knows.
