Major Highlight: K0nfig's Incredible Knife Kill
With so much on the line, k0nfig's decision to pull out the knife drew scorn from the casters and, judging by the post-match interviews, nearly drove his team-mates to despair. As
"I really wanted him to just kill him, just win the round, because it's so important for me, but he got the knife kill, we won the round, that's what matters. But I was not pleased with how he did it."
Nor was the rest of k0nfig's team...
@k0nfigCS EASIEST BENCH OF OUR LIFE IF YOU DIED WHEN YOU TRIED TO KNIFE— North (@TheNorthIsHere) January 26, 2017
Still, it was an incredible moment of instinctive play in one of the most dramatic contexts imaginable—a qualify-or-be-eliminated grudge match between two Scandinavian powerhouses—so if nobody else is going to say it, we will. Thanks, k0nfig!
Make sure you watch the match if you haven't already.
