Unkillable: zywOo evades death in PGL Antwerp opener

In the opening match of the PGL Antwerp Major, Vitality’s Mathieu “zywOo” Heirbaut played a flawless map of CS:GO. The AWPer didn’t die a single time as his team beat Complexity 16-1.

Vitality entered the event shrouded in doubt, as the newly formed French-Danish lineup has struggled to find form in the first months of the season.

But a close to perfect match against NA hopeful Complexity must have bolstered morale.

While Emil “Magisk” Reif topped the scoreboard with 20 frags to his name, zywOo played an even more remarkable map.

The French AWPer didn’t die a single time in the 17 rounds of play, finishing the map with an 11-2 score.

Vitality is now only two wins away from locking in a spot in the Legends stage with the win.
