We're sorry to that one person who is a G2 and an Arsenal fan, 'cause the last few days can't have been great. But it was too easy a joke.

As Arsenal sit in the relegation zone for the first time since most of you were born, G2 sit bottom of their group. A loss to Sinners - a team who you might know as 'oskar's team' or 'that one Czech team' - preceded a 0-2 shellacking from OG.

Yeah, that OG. And map two was a 16-5. NiKo picked up 29 kills in a 16-10 loss.

Counter-Strike is back, baby.

NEOFRAG was the big surprise on Sinners - though maybe not that much of a surprise if you have a look at his HLTV page. The guy can play, and with SHOCK also a...n unexpectedly impressive gamer, G2 were upset by the underdogs.

So what's wrong with G2? It's their T sides - they win less than a third of their T side rounds, with the comparison to BnB being a particularly unfavourable one, given they have to practice in NA where flashbangs are banned.

NiKo has still managed to average a 1.3 rating in their two games. He's the third highest rated player at the event. Is he just cursed, or something?


Ah well. At least it's going better for them in other games.


Sorry to that G2/Arsenal fan, again.
