Birth of a meme at DreamHack Montreal

Chiu on This
A short and regular opinion blast from Stephen Chiu

‘Chiu on This’ is a short and regular opinion blast

This one is for those fans out there who don’t follow CS:GO, but love memes. At DreamHack Montreal, Immortals players were late to the grand final against North. They were so late that they broke the rules and DreamHack had them forfeit the first map. Among the players late was kNg, who went on a rampage on Twitter after the event, specifically against FNS. FNS is the leader of CLG, the team that lost to Immortals in the semifinals. He made a self-deprecating joke about losing to team with three hungover players (as the rumor was that they were late because they were hungover), and kNg took it personally.

His first tweet was: “prove it or I’ll kill you.” It has since been deleted. The second was “You’re a shit wanting to show up with lies, I really do have you! garbage and liar, you owe us respect.” Finally Dekay reported that kNg was walking through the hotel look for FNS. This culminated in the fantastic picture made by kn0nker. Every once in a while, you get to be witness to the birth of a meme, this time it was at DH Montreal.
