If you thought 2020 craziness had peaked, then think again.
From orange blobs running a country, to a virus locking us all indoors - which as it turns out isn't every gamers dream - we've now got one more crazy thing to add to the list
A full-on fake Counter-Strike organisation.
FULL. ON. FAKE.
A "team" under the name of NOREG, supposedly from the Nordic countries, has been faking their existence for the last few weeks on Twitter. They started off pretty slow, making up fake players and running a fake event. But as the creator(s) realized that no one really paid attention, they just went full ham.
It started off in the small town of "faking the death of the father of a fake player", passed through the city of "suggesting Bubzkji is your CEO", and finally ended up in the metropolis that is "fake-streaming an entire game against an actual team".
Yup, that's right, they faked playing a game against Endpoint, beating them 2-0, and they did this by having their own stream of the match up, replacing the names of another team in the HUD. To this moment we still don't understand what the end goal was, or why they thought no one would notice.
After people started interchangeably calling them out and having a laugh at their expense, the Twitter account eventually went covert, changing the alias plus avatar and then deleting all their tweets.
We wish they had left the account open, because this was one for the archives.
