Hey guys I wanted to give a little intro to this article. I’ve been playing with the idea of making an eSports conspiracy news show. This is my first quick shot at an idea. Let me know what you think, if it’s funny, etc. Thanks!
In the wake of Astralis winning the ELeague Major, we’ve seen a whole mess of roster moves in the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive scene. Organizations are sparing no expense to build what fans and analysts alike are calling “Super Teams.” We’ve got FaZe picking up NiKo. The old Fnatic lineup, by far the most dominant team in csgo history, getting together. Newly established North is bringing back their old Dignitas comrade Aizy. Felps got the call to join the big league signing with SK. The North American scene blew up with Stanislaw and Hiko changing teams. We’ve also got KennyS and Shox finally playing together on G2 making what could be the best French team in history. We are in a new era of CS:GO, an era where nobody knows who is going to win that next event. It’s almost supernatural…..
Because it is. Did you notice anything strange about Astralis at the Major? Take a close look at this pic of Gla1ve.
Notice anything strange about it? Look at the keyboard. That’s not a Razer logo. Yeah that’s a ancient Viking rune on his keyboard. That rune belongs to a cult of Fenrir, the wolf from Norse mythology. He’s the son of Loki and the giantess Angrboða and one of the major catalysts for Ragnarok aka the Twilight of the Gods aka the end of the world; a era where the greatest of warriors will do glorious battle with the strongest going on to fight in Valhalla for eternity.
I know it sounds crazy, but think about it. Gla1ve is the new guy on Astralis’ roster and is feeling the pressure. He had to fill Karrigan’s IGL shoes, a pretty massive job, on top of breaking the team’s choking curse (put on them by Na’vi and their cult of Baba Yaga). With all that weight on his shoulders, Gla1ve caved in and succumbed to his Danish history with rune magic. You see Gla1ve comes from a long line of Gothi, ancient Norse priests. By tapping into his mystic history, Gla1ve channeled the power of the the Fenrir rune guaranteeing victory at the major. But this rune magic comes with a cost. Gla1ve has triggered CS:GO’s Ragnarok. That’s why we’ve been seeing all these super teams rising. The Gods are gathering their forces for the final battle. Think about it.
We’ll have to see what happens at DreamHack Vegas. Does Gla1ve’s rune magic hold up, or will the onslaught see another Super Team rise to Odin’s side in Valhalla.
