JW to miss his first CS:GO Major ever following defeat at Europe Minor

fnatic JW

Jesper “JW” Wecksell is right up there with the legends of CS:GO. Unfortunately, his legacy of not missing a single major ever in Counter-Strike has now been ruined, as fnatic have failed to overcome CR4ZY in the Europe Minor. The tournament guarantees entry to the upcoming StarLadder Major in Berlin for two teams. Mousesports have already qualified in the first place; fnatic was the favorite to advance in second.

Fnatic hit a brick wall

The organization fnatic is a household name in CS:GO. The very idea of a team of such caliber missing a major boggles every Counter-Strike fan’s mind for sure. The team, however, fell short to a lineup that has recently been on the rise: CR4ZY. To make things worse, the best-of-three matchup ended in a blowout result 2-0 in favor of CR4ZY. This result surely must have dealt a massive blow to fnatic’s team morale.

CR4ZY already impressed the crowd when they eliminated mousesports from the New York qualifier. The team, featuring players such as Nestor “LETN1” Tanić or Nemanja “nexa” Isaković, has been picking up steam as they continue to battle for the entry to the StarLadder Major from second place.

JW takes a step back

Following the gut-wrenching defeat, JW took to Twitter to express how he felt.

From the tone, JW appears devastated. His phenomenal run at not missing any CS:GO major must have hurt deeply. However, the talented AWPer seems like he’s not giving up just yet.

Despite the loss, he seems to be determined to make a comeback. Hopefully, we will see fnatic and JW make their way back stronger than before after their loss to CR4ZY.

JW has been a player for fnatic in CS:GO for most of his career. He briefly joined GODSENT, an organization made by Markus “pronax” Wallsten. The team, however, ceased operations in June 2018. JW had already returned to fnatic in early April 2017, though.

Unfortunately, fnatic have not seen much success recently. Their last LAN victory was at WESG 2017 World Finals, where the team beat Space Soldiers in the finale. They were also victorious at IEM Katowice 2018 after beating FaZe Clan. That was their last stride of victory for a long while.

Will fnatic return to the phenomenal form that they once presented? Do you think JW and the team will recover from this heavy loss? Let us know what you think down in the comments below, and as always, remember to follow us at Daily Esports for all your latest updates in the esports world.
