The Australian Team Capturing The Hearts Of The Counter-Strike Scene

This weekend at the Gfinity Spring Masters II event in London, Australian team VOX Eminor were the story of the event. Competing against some of the absolute tip top best Counter Strike teams in the world, this Australian team held their own against a number of full-time professional teams, winning a host of new fans in the process.

The vibe from the Gfinity audience and Counter Strike: Global Offensive community? VOX Eminor are here to stay and the sky is the limit.

VOX Eminor didn't make it past the group stages in the event, but were part of an incredible three-way tie for third spot in the group. Considering the fact they were competing in a severe group stacked with talent, this is an incredible result.

Their landmark moment? Taking down Team Liquid, a highly paid team of famous pros 16-9 on Inferno and then 16-8 in match number two on Dust2.

A large part of their success came from team member jks who -- statically -- was the second highest rated player in the entire group stages with a +53, 1.45 kill/death ratio. Pretty incredible work. In the video above you can watch him comprehensively dismantling four members of Team Liquid.

VOX Eminor, as of this moment, are minor celebrities in the scene -- in part because of their incredible performance at the event, but partly because of their distinct style of play, using different callouts, being distinctly 'Australian' and in general just completely surprising everyone in the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive community. You can check out some their POV play above for proof of that.

Congratulations guys and good luck for the next event.

    it all went downhill for liquid when fugly teabagged one of vox's players in game 1. They didnt win a single round in that game after that (they were ahead at the time) and then were outplayed in game 2.

    I'd hardly say 2-0ing Team Liquid was a highlight since they have been struggling even in their home leagues in NA, let alone overseas with European teams. Liquid may have talent but they are clearly a poor mix of players.

    "One's pushing banana aye" So Australian

      Sounds more like Scottish to me, but well done to the aussies!

    I think taking a map off both Fnatic and NiP were more worthy landmark moments.

    "Their landmark moment? Taking down Team Liquid, a highly paid team of famous pros 16-9 on Inferno and then 16-8 in match number two on Dust2."

    Team Liquid aren't a team of famous pro's or highly paid, if anything their landmark moment would be taking a map off of Fnatic who went on to take the tournament (they also took a map from NiP, who are another one of the heavy-hitting teams alongside Fnatic and Virtus.Pro).

      So. Are Fnatic and NiP still top tier teams after being washed in the tournament just passed?. Placing in the 5th to 8th Bracket? lol. The landscape is changing slowly. Soon Fnatic wont be so prominent.
