The last major was bright and memorable, with many exciting moments, both in the quality of play of the teams and in the media part of the tournament. For example, remember the trumpet fan or the brawl with obscene gestures. It's all in the memory of the last major. Cyber-sport.io team will consider the fake opening of the case and the ambiguous reaction of the audience during the team's matches.
During the BLAST.tv Paris Major 2023 final, a CS: GO fan decided to open a case right in the arena, and, rather surprisingly, a knife fell out of it. However, it was later found out that it was a pre-recorded and shown video.
Ale, a data mining expert, discovered the ruse. He noticed the absence of an important detail that Valve added in August 2022 - a button to the left of the case's contents, which allows you to examine the items in more detail. But this button was missing from the laptop screen where the case was opened.
Initially, no one suspected a trick - the entire arena supported the fan, congratulating him with applause. The fan himself got plausibly excited about the knife, starting to jump around the arena. However, users noticed that the key purchase menu looked very old.
In addition, as it turned out players, in August 2022 Valve added a new option on the cases, which is located in the lower right corner. You can use it to inspect weapons. The player who knocked out the knife in the majors did not have this button on his screen.
All of the above facts prove that the video is a fake. Before that, viewers also tried to knock out something valuable in the majors, but mostly everyone got cheap guns.
The moment occurred on the first map of the match between Vitality and GamerLegion. “ZywOo” lineup took the first map, Overpass. The team also won the second map, which was Nuke. The winner of this series took $500,000 in prize money, as well as a ticket to IEM Cologne 2023 and BLAST Premier: World Final 2023. Yet another hype and lucrative case-buying event. Fans did their job!
And in general, fans played a fairly large role in this major. So organizers BLAST.tv Paris Major 2023 on CS:GO warned the participant of Team Liquid “YEKINDAR” during the match with Apeks in the quarterfinals of the event. Representatives of the tournament operator pointed out that the player took advantage of the reaction of the hall on his actions in time for the clutch, which helped the cyber athlete to end the round in his favor.
The players themselves don't like the action. Here's what said Forward Gaming CS:GO sniper Rustem “mou” Telepov:
Fans ruin major, in this case, whoever played against Vitality - no chance will be
Also, this situation commented Jame :
[…] it does not matter in the cabins or not, the noise of the crowd is always heard, just earlier people did not directly abusive it […] for instance moment with Snax and Yekindar
Can we consider that the fans have become full-fledged team players at this stage of the tournament, it's up to you to decide. But the fact that the organizers should fix this problem in the future - it's unequivocal.
BLAST.tv Paris Major 2023 was held May 8-21 in France. Teams raffled off a $1.25 million prize pool and slots to IEM Cologne 2023 and BLAST Premier: World Final. Team Vitality was the champion of the last major in CS:GO history.
What do you think - did the reaction of the hall at this Major matter? And what do you think about the fake case?
