Mathieu ‘ZywOo’ Herbaut is a identified entity throughout the Counter-Strike scene as an AWPer that statistically has no equivalent around the previous few months; he’s statistically the most productive participant within the sport, and has extra ceaselessly than no longer dragged the French crew Vitality via tournaments that some posit they’d another way have almost-instantly misplaced.
Yesterday Vitality matched up in opposition to Fnatic, and the AWPer as soon as once more dusted off his rifle to turn the sector why he’s one of these blisteringly sizzling commodity at the moment throughout the skilled scene of the esport.
Across 3 maps, ZywOo attained a ranking of one.75 out of two; the perfect in contemporary historical past throughout the European area, and Fnatic weren’t essentially providing him the statistics.
The French AWPer, that in truth prefers to rifle, recorded 79 kills (with 33 headshots) around the 3 maps with 40 deaths, making his differential +39 at 115.nine moderate harm according to spherical. Meaning according to spherical, he was once averaging no less than one kill with further harm on most sensible of that.
ZywOo was once ceaselessly relegated to sitting a bit of additional again and permitting his teammates to achieve data that the famous person would then use to discern his angles; Fnatic left the sequence with 38 first kills, whilst Vitality had best 31.
This has made the French crew a bit of sinister in contemporary match-ups, explaining why they discovered themselves at the number 1 seed on the planet throughout a time the place many are suffering in opposition to the woes of on-line CS with latency and disconnects.
Teams no longer best want so that you could close down the access performs from riflers from Vitality, but in addition then be capable to close down the consequential results from the famous person AWPer running with the information gleaned from the entries. An uncongenial one-two punch that many groups have struggled in opposition to lately.

Still, Vitality has dropped from #1 to #four as Astralis has regained the number 1 seed after Vitality dropped a string of losses that have been tricky to observe; blank sweeps got as much as FaZe, mousesports, and Complexity prior to now month whilst Vitality constantly appeared flustered and hesitant in each and every name made.
There is a global the place Vitality regains the higher hand within the seedings, and it might really well be on this actual timeline; NaVi ahs confirmed that having a unique impeccable AWPer could make a crew a nightmare to deal with, and if Vitality can wrest keep an eye on on retakes and are available out forward a couple of extra occasions on access frags, the crew could be somewhat fearsome certainly.
For now, alternatively, Vitality must make do with having one of the vital perfect AWPers the sport has even observed.
