A Pro Counter-Strike Match Suspended 30 Feet In The Air By A Crane

Usually, esports stages really do not get significantly far more elaborate than a significant display screen, some vibrant lights, and it’s possible a smoke equipment for result. Above the weekend, Republic Of Players made a decision to one particular-up everybody with a “stage” suspended from vertigo-inducing heights.

As element of its “Extreme Gaming” celebration (by using PCGamesN), ROG hosted a Counter-Strike exhibition match among German crew Penta and Czech crew eXtatus that took area about 30 ft in the air. Though none of the players spoke English, you can get a good concept about how numerous of them have been experience based on facial expressions by itself:

I know that face perfectly. It’s the one particular people today make when they get on roller coasters and then recognize they really do not even like roller coasters, and oh jeez right here will come the initial fall, fuck this.

Helpfully, a Redditor translated a dialogue among two commentators as the crane hoisted the system into the air:

Commentator one: “Hey, hey this is really not good. I want to go down.”

Commentator 2: “Higher. Increased!”

Commentator one: “Shut up! I require to hold on to a little something but there is practically nothing I can get right here!”

Commentator 2: “Well at this issue I hope we are just a quarter way up. They could get us better.”

Commentator one: “Hey you are a… Shut up! You are not serving to!”

In the close, eXtatus received fairly decisively, proving that they have been a lot less unsettled by the uncaring forces of gravity and floor leering about their shoulders. And while it was simply an exhibition match, now everybody involved can say they did it, handily answering the query of “why?” with the at any time-trusted “why not?”
