G2 Esports's Shox

Playing professional Counter-Strike since 2006, shox is inarguably one of the greatest CS players of all time. One of the original stars of CS:GO, shox has dominated his opponents with his immaculate rifle skills for the past 6 years. Consistently relevant when discussing who the best players are, shox's mastery of the AK & M4 has maintained his status as a carry player of any team he is a member. His most notable teams (in CS:GO) have been: Epsilon eSports, Millenium, VeryGames, Titan, TeamLDLC.com, Team Envyus & G2 Esports. With the rifle, shox has utilized his proficiency as a "lurker" to best dominate his enemies. Silently creeping up to his opposition or waiting for enemies to enter his view, shox uses both his aim and game-sense to his advantage. After a small decline in form, shox bounced back at IEM Katowice 2018 showing his potential again. Holding a 1.13 kill-rating (only missing 20-plus frags in 2 games), shox managed to put out a winning performance in every game he played even though his team lost 4 of 7 games played.
