guardian play is different ngab, fnatic did not throw, but they just unluckee. while it means guardian was lucky with that no scope shot. the most undebatable 1v5 clutch win is rain's clutch in cache. all aim, all gamesense, all positioning, was just perfect. no such unluckee timing, no such unluckee miss shot. it was just rain in his prime.

2021-09-15 01:17
There's never been a 1v5 clutch in the history of CS that didn't involve a significant amount of throwing from the other team. Every single one of them, without exception, has multiple mistakes by the other team. So yeah - TL threw, and probably feel like crap for it, but they aren't alone.

Yup. They were up 15-4, but as someone stated above, it was 2-2 in maps. However, this clutch won the game, that clutch most likely didn´t matter too much.

Yeah flusha actually aced to bring it to ot on the 5th map, but he wasnt only one alive. And then round after he gets another insane ace clutch where they are 5v2 but flusha kill all with some crazy plays on B site Edit, the insane clutch actually at 13-11 to fnatic with hard reset on the line and 2nd was to bring it into ot
2021-09-11 09:55
I mean guardians 1v5 was mid-game so its kinda missing that point.. Probably won it anyways but heroic would've literally just lost if refrezh didnt go crazy with a 1v5.

top1 choke of the year lol. after 2nd kill I knew he's gonna win (by how stupid TL started to move around) really impressive kill - last one, crazy flick + staying full calm in such important round is also mind blowing

This has the potential to be remembered as one of the greatest chokes in Cs history. Credit to refrezh as well, but elige stewie and naf really fucked up. They were just done once this went to overtime.

In fact it wasn’t impressive at all Players killed: 1 FalleN: wasn’t even with his monitor on today 2 EliGe: he got out of a smoke and didn’t even knew where to aim 3 Stewie10am: he stayed in the same spot knowing that his arm could be seen by refreshz, just another bot play by him 4 NAF: doesn’t even have headphone? Like the dude as running on his left and he’s checking his right side. Embarrassing 5 Grim: should’ve rushed refreshz when he was planting Any gold nova team could kill him. Very very very unlikely we see a dumb play like that on the history of counter strike again But NAF and Stew are the ones to blame, easily They both baited each other instead of opening at the same time

2021-09-11 04:47
It's not the flashiest 1v5 ever but definitely the most impactful. I cant remember ever seeing such an impactful clutch in the past 5 years. To win that on last map and go on to win the series is unreal. Liquid played bad yes but can't use that to discredit such an insane play.
