VaKarM releases documentary about LDLC's DreamHack Winter 2014 Major win

The 43-minute documentary walks us through LDLC's road to becoming the first French team to win a Major and all of the events that happened in Jönköping, Sweden, between November 27-29, 2014.

The fourth Major in CS:GO, DreamHack Winter 2014, was one that went down in history not only for the first French Major victory but also the infamous "olofboost" that ended
up seeing the Swedish team forfeit the final map of their quarter-final series.

Richard "shox" Papillon, Nathan "NBK-" Schmitt and co. were in the middle of it all. The Frenchmen were eliminated in the quarter-finals of the tournament, brought back to the competition, and finally, celebrated as Major champions.

Relive the "Legendary Major" victory LDLC managed in 2014

Despite the boost on Overpass being the thing most people remember the event for, the grand final against NiP was far from uneventful. Vincent "Happy" Schopenhauer and his men were looking down the barrel of the gun on the final map, Overpass, only to manage a comeback powered by their signature CZ-75 force buys, claiming the series in overtime.

The documentary, produced by VaKarM, covers the whole story of LDLC at "A Legendary Major", with subtitles available for English-speaking viewers.

Using a card bug to compensate for what was missing for the whole team to win loyally is nothing less than a total disrespect for everyone in electronic sports, cheating so as not to lose was lamentable and forfeiting was the only thing to do on Fnatic's part and it restored their honor in part. But the Fnatics were far from the only culprits in this story, the Dreamhack not being at its first attempt on Csgo should have clearly stipulated that any pixel walking found during a round should sanction the team at fault and assign each of its heats to the opposing team. Everyone already knew that Valve's work on creating maps or modifying them was unfortunately anything but professional and therefore pixel walking advantageous or not was frequent, known to all and should have been purely and simply considered cheating like a * .exe *.

The Fnatic players was feeling so bad that they thought about forfeiting even before LDLC made a complaint. But the staff managed to have the map replayed and then they finally forfeit with the pressure. So when the players and even the coach in the post-match interview are feeling bad about it, there is an obvious problem right ?
2020-04-01 20:13
No? In the post-match interview the coach Devilwalk were smiling, knowing that they had pulled out one incredible trick out of their sleeves. The players were celebrating and happy after the win. They only made the decision after going back to hotel, realizing the headlines and the community feedback.
2020-04-01 20:25

LDLC make an boost, an poor and dumb boost, and fnatic make an OP boost, smart boost
2020-04-01 20:10
Boost wasn't fair? Then maybe let's forfeit players for using more successful strats than their oppopents? They literally used a good strat that nobody knew about it, so why because of some crying frenchies they should've give 'em their semi-final spot? Which problem that they didn't know about this boost?

thats was 5 years ago and i dont remember correctly but this rule was from 1.6 events. olof was behind the wall for Ts and they cant see him but he can shoot them not even through the wall (one-way wall or smth like this)

Because it gave info on 70% of the map, and couldn't get kill from short because of a transparent wall. And that texture bug was in fact illegal and it was in the rules of the DH.
2020-04-01 20:58
No, the "pixelwalking" rule was only written in DH Summer 2013 rule book and it was not written in DH Winter 2014 rule book

The texture bug was not legal, I'm not talking about the pixel bug.
2020-04-02 09:05
The whole reason the map was suggested to be replayed was because the French were found to be exploiting bugs too. Turns out fnatic were just better at it...
2020-04-01 22:32

France MaximusGDN 
No, the texture bug exploited by olof was not legal, but the Fnatic staff manged to find a moment where Smithzz jumped out of a position and from there he could see the texture bug even if he was not aware of it. That's why they decided to replay the map but then Fnatic forfeit because of other shady stuff about the org. You were probably not here in 2014 if you don't know that
2020-04-02 09:11
Look at my favourite player you gimp. Do you know who that is? I watched it live on twitch. And they didn’t forfeit because of “other shady stuff” you moron, they did it because of community backlash

2020-04-01 22:09
They confirmed how they fucked up with this? Oh, yeah, good excuse, but I'll say it once again - who cares? Valve didn't give a shit about it, and once fnatic came up with this, it became illegal? Why they couldn't say it before? At the time they used it, it was allowed.

No need to argue, it solves nothing but only wastes time. I'm to share my opinion, which I already did. That was well played by Fnatic on the part of finding out that boost in the first place, poorly managed by DH and a nice showing of will to win by the French.

+1 Absolutely imbalanced conditions were set. Fnatic's era could've been even better, we might've seen LDLC get frustrated earlier than they did and get in kennyS even before the AWP nerf and also have a better chance at ESL One Cologne to make up for DH Winter. How much would be different today is arguable, but it would've been interesting to see the effects ripple through our timeline as we know it.

what win? Fnatic deserved that win robbed by crying frenchies! Boostmeister will always be remembered, your shit major win wont be. Forced to forfeit by the community / pros even though they didn't break official rules / LDLC used similar boost entire first half yet the "replay" was that it will play from second half. Disgusting event.
2020-04-01 16:54
no the replay was for the whole map because of LDLC boost in the pistol round of the first half that fnatic complained about
2020-04-01 16:57
No, the replay was the match playing from the second half. Not the first half.
2020-04-01 17:07
2020-04-01 17:22
Was meant to be 12 3 but was changed to 0-0 until LDLC started crying and fnatic received death threats causing them to withdraw.

2020-04-01 17:45
nobody said the contrary but you lied twice already saying that they were only replaying the 2nd half, that they broke no rules adding that you characterize LDLC as crying but not fnatic doing the same complaint...

(idk why this guy was so involved) then you had the community sharing clips of fnatic "fishy plays" basically calling them blatant hackers and they shouldn't be considered as pro players. Calling them vile things. But to you, thats ok because fnatic filed a counter claim so they are crying too!
2020-04-01 18:02
they already said that there initial reactions on twitter after the match was really bad because they were really upset and don't forget that almost all the CS pro scene was saying the same thing but you look really uniformed on this event and that why you have such a one sided vision of it

The boost wasn't even known so of course it wouldn't be in the rules. But it clearly was added and the it was banned in the finals. Fnatic were filthy, cheating their way to the victory. They got humilated 13-3 in a fair match and they knew they would acclaim their team forever if they would lose a fair rematch, understandably ran away.

Imagine winning a major by crying hard enough. Typical french
2020-04-01 17:15
the whole community and even the pro scene was mad at them, you probably weren't following the scene at that time as they said in the documentary : Fnatic was in the top twitts because of the bashing but it's easier to trashtalk ye

VaKarM is really good at this sort of thing. The French have a sort of pride of their accomplishments in CS that is very well represented by an epic piece such as this. Go watch even if you don't speak French, I checked the subtitles as well a couple times and the translation is exceptionally well done !

Great watch, went through in one take. I always knew Fnatic would lose in a fair play, they knew as well and they've quit it. My favorite team won, it was great.
2020-04-01 17:29
ill summarize LDLC's major win for you guys: fnatic knocked them out of the tournament, but french fanboys bitched and moaned on twitter until fnatic decided they didn't care about the 3peat
2020-04-01 17:29
13-3 until using OP strat against the rules ... ye sure fnatic was "knocking them out" lul they were desperate and trying to force comeback by cheating It was a no balls play tbh

"cheating" because olofboost could barely see through an irrelevant texture Admins stretched the rulebook to appease twitter fanboys, deal with it. Fnatic is appreciated as an all time great, and LDLC is remembered as yet another French meme team. Cologne 2014 and DHW 2014 are the two least meaningful majors won by the two weakest teams because of mickey mouse mario kart nonsense

yes, he read the game perfectly when running the same strat and getting owned by the same boost for thirteen straight rounds. His 200IQ leadership is the watermark of a consistently high achieving and universally respected career

What would you do against a blanat aimbot, Fnatic were on their knees losing in a fair game, 13-3, they went for the last thing they had and it was just pure cheating. DH staff were incompetent, they would be cut straight away. Pussied out and forfeited anyway, bullied out of the competition while the honest prospered as always.

Yeah, so 0 IQ that when they spotted him in the boost they cant even shoot him because of skyboxes, such lamers.
2020-04-01 19:51
You do realize that they spotted the boost but couldn't even kill the boosted player because of skyboxes, right ? Shox explains it really well in the video... And that's the exact moment when DH should have stopped the game if their admins were competent.
2020-04-01 20:16
that's bullshit, and you can verify it for yourself by loading up the legacy map version from the workshop. You can kill someone in olofboost

2020-04-01 17:38
by exploiting bug? it was not possible to shoot him from several angle cause of texture. how come it s not cheating? today it would be a imediate ban or disqualification from the competition
2020-04-01 17:46
LDLC did the same thing in first half, fnatic only got punised because they found better boost. LDLC would used it if they knew about it
2020-04-01 18:08
i m not sure about this, smithz boost was pixel walking? also it was not possible to shout olof cause of texture bug , what about smithz? also smithz didn t got any kills they could have left this boost if it was not a bug exploit. anyway for me the one to blame is valve here , not the teams. but the fact it was not possible to shoot olof as shox mention, it s clearly a bug exploit today one would be banned/ disqualified by doing this
2020-04-01 18:20
you cant think of it as "he didnt kill anyone so it was not the same case" ...idk from what I remember it should have been the same pixel walk, but might be wrong

Pixelwalk was allowed in dh. Texture bug was the problem. Both nbk and olof used it. So either fnatic win since both teams usee bug or restart map. But French cried their way to semi.

Afterwards I can't fucking stand them and I'm glad their scene was dead for years and that every team with more than one of these guys collapsed due to internal whining and drama. I hope OG kicks NBKry before he convinces everyone to kick Aleksi so he can take over leadership.

it makes only sense to release it 6 years later when you have the guys in action talking about how they felt at this time and how it still affects them in 2020 or what happened from 2014 to 2020 ... this is just some GOTV shit and the interviews from back then so it could have been released there as well ... doesnt make any sense 6 years later

The boost was illegal, but LDLC used an illegal boost aswell in the same map. fnatic was just better at "cheating" so I think they should have won or the map should have been replayed (which was admins decision after all)

LDLC won a second major too ? Wtf are you talking about ? If you remember correctly 2015, LDLC was in the final of one major, won the last of the year
2020-04-01 19:50
only 3/5 core and after that french scene really went downhill, meanwhile fnatic were dominant since Olofs injury in 2016. Im talking about how close the scene was to lose one of the greatest lineups of all time and 5 very talented people just because of community hatred caused by this and LDLC players
2020-04-01 20:24
lol do you really thing that the team of Flusha needed this to be hated ?
2020-04-01 20:25
first, learn to speak english properly second, I see you are one of those delusional guys accusing flusha of cheating, so I dont really think there is anything left to say.
2020-04-01 20:27
third, yes, they were not popular by the community before, but the shitstorm that came after, like death threats to family members etc, do you really think it was the right thing?
2020-04-01 20:28
Of course not.... But FNC players knew they were cheating... Dont you think that the first right thing to do was to not do it for 15 rounds straight ?
2020-04-01 20:31
I don't need to accuse him of anything.... Flusha was hated long before this.... It's a fact. I could also tell you about JW which insulted everyone during a final and so on. Fnc players didn't need that to be hated.
2020-04-01 20:29
Which final do you mean exactly? And okay, can you remind me what exactly pronax or krimz did to deserve that hate? Beat your favourite team back then or..?
2020-04-01 20:30
#222 Especially for Pronax
2020-04-01 20:33
And it's pretty clear that DH organizers tried to help FNC in this situation, with a "different ruling" that no other teams got. You see the rules in the video. Pixelwalking was clearly forbidden... Why would Fnatic have a different ruling ? And if they had this ruling, they know that they are doing something illegal... And keep on doing it... So yeah, the shit, except the death threats, were well desserved.

2020-04-01 18:27
They shouldn't have won. Should have been disqualified after they broke the rules on Overpass, or they should have taken the L over Fnatic.
2020-04-01 18:27
One boost wasn't illegal (2 players, no pixel walk) the other was....
2020-04-01 19:48
Boosting and pixel walking was allowed. Fnatic broke two rules with that boost. Immortality and Looking through broken textures. Both also happened in LDLC's boost. Fnatic were hated in 2014, because of the cheating accusation. Everyone believed Flusha cheated, didn't make it any better when SF got caught and outed a lot of other pros, including Flusha. Outcry of the community were the true reason LDLC "won".
2020-04-01 20:30
Boosting yes, with 3 players, no. And pixelwalking, no. You see the ruleset in the video. At least the one that LDLC received. It would be strange if FNC received a different ruleset, especially when many other teams said that they had the same ruleset as LDLC. So yeah, perhaps they won because of the outcry, but it was well desserved. You could argue if the score was alot closer, but when you use that kind of boost in a game you loose 13-3, sorry, but you weren't the best team on the server that day.
2020-04-01 20:41
And i don't even speack about the fact that FNC org members were allowed to stay at the venue while DH organisers were discussing the ruling, when no member of LDLC were allowed, as explained in the video. Especially when you see them changing their first ruling so fast, under FNC pressure. Talked about outcry ? Or perhaps that the main reason everyone hated them.

Funny to see all the kids here doing usual french bashing. In live the huge majority of the community was in favor of ldlc for a reason, even a lot of swedes. Only Dreamhack was guilty in this case tbh
2020-04-01 19:09
In my opinion LDLC deserved the major win - they were well on the way of beating Fnatic at half point and, they went on to beat Nip in the final. But tbh, I think alot of people ruled in favor of LDLC by default. Fnatic was not very liked at the time, having refused to shake hands with Nip, Flusha was regarded as a cheater and then this boost fanned the flames. Any team out of the top3 LDLC, Fnatic and Nip would have been deserved winners. Edit: I agree with your last statement

2020-04-01 19:33
Now that i can rewatch this, i t's clear that DH couldn' to make a decision against FNC, because it was a swedish team. Would have been any non swedish team, they would have been disqualified on the spot....
2020-04-01 19:47
Nice flag. Both fnatic and LDLC broke the rules and dreamhack followed them by telling them to replay the match. Just because Fnatic's illegal boost was better than LDLC's illegal boost doesn't mean that they should be directly disqualified..
2020-04-01 20:03
One wasn't illegal... LDLC boost wasn't implying 3 players, which was forbidden and wasn't pixel walking. Why DH ruled LDLC boost illegal is explained in the video by Smithzz, and it's because when you jump out of the boost, you benefit from a bugged texture, but not during the boost, like for FNC boost. That's why at first, they ruled to replay the 2nd half, which would have been the good decision.... But they changed it under the org pressure, while non of the LDLC members, including staff, wasn't allowed to stay in the venue.
2020-04-01 20:12
Yes, the issue wasn't pixelwalking, it was bugged textures, therefor illegal. No matter how much worse it was and even if they didn't benefit from the bug it was still illegal so you have to to apply the same meassures no matter how unfair you think it is. Purely on rules the right call was to replay the whole match. Fortunately fnatic forfeited though.
2020-04-01 22:31
I think you should watch again cause it's not what smithzz said It was Texture AND pixelwalking for FNC. And SMithzz even said that 3 men boosts were supposed to be illegal no matter what at this time. And in your analysis of the situation you forget to mention that the advantage gained from Fnatic boost is far more important because of the map awarness it gave (basicly all but long, which, as smithzz said is basicly the whole map) + the fact that you couldn't even correctly frag the boosted player. Because the round that SHox shoot at Olof, the boost should have been over.

Here is how I see that shit show: - Either you interpret the rules to the spirit of the law in which case It's hard to argument the boost was legal. - Either you interpret the rules to the letter. In which case the boost was illegal because of the texture bugs and not pixel walking as it was miraculously removed from the rule book without any announcements or anyone knowing about it. Still you have to be consistent with the interpretation. The rulebook also mentioned that each round where illegal actions occurred is to be forfeited. You have to apply that rule to the letter too. Do the math and you'll see LDLC won by the rule. Also there is nothing about re-playing a side or the whole map anywhere in that book. - Another thing. FNC filed a contest hours after the end of the match while they were still chatting with their Swedish friends, I mean admins while LDLC had been sent out. Usually rules allow a very limited time after the end of a match to file a contest. Not sure about that being in the rule book given the level of professionalism at the time.

Swedish LANs have always been awful for foreigners and especially french teams. - Hostile Records on 1.6 getting kicked out of a tournament on suspicion of robbery (nobody knows if they really stole something, especially a mousepad from Qpad that they were sponsored by at that time...). Racist comments all over the place because 2 of them were blacks. Knocked out in the middle of swedish winter based on nothing. - D4 Gaming at Dreamhack in the qualifying tournament. Opposite team were using picmip and unallowed skins to see them better. It took the admins 2 hours to take a decision to ban them (?!?). Another team tried to disqualify D4 because they were using laptops wich was not against the rules. It tooks the admins hours too to take a decision. Just because they were not swedish (or maybe because they were french who knows). And countless other stories from back in the days. The thing is that in a pro tournament, admins should NEVER be from the hosting country and they should never take a decision if a team from their country is playing. I've nothing against swedish people but everytime it was a mess, always favorising the swedish team against others.
