Shox’s perfect streak comes to an end

The Major of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) to be held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, promises to be one of the most exciting in recent years. However, the next edition of the most important tournament in Counter Strike It will be a little before and after. For the first time in his career, Apeks player Richard Papillon «shox» will miss a Major. Until now the French icon was one of the three players who had participated in each edition since 2012.

The fall of the shox streak comes through the open qualifiers for the European RMR, where the teams that will travel to Rio de Janeiro will be definitively decided. In the first edition Apeks fell at the hands of 9INE 10-16, while in the third 12-16 against Wolsung. However, the tragedy came in the last chance that the fourth represented: there GamerLegion surpassed the Danish team through a overtime. With a 15-19 in favor of the German organization, the French player dismissed his options to go to the Major.

This is not the first time in 2022 that a streak of this type has been broken. Shox was able to participate in the Major in Antwerp with Team Liquid, but by that time the list of players who had competed in every tournament of this caliber had gone from five to three. Belgium ended the streak of Nicolai Reedtz «dev1ce» and Olof Kajbjer «olofmeister», Ninjas in Pajamas and FaZe Clan players respectively. Despite having completely different contexts, today neither player counts in the current plans of their respective clubs.

With 16 consecutive appearances for dev1ce and olofmeister as well as 17 for shox, currently the only players who remain as participants of all Majors are Andreas Højsleth “Xyp9x” and Peter Rasmussen “dupreeh”, Astralis and Team Vitality players respectively. Dupreeh is already locked into the European RMR, where he is in Group B. Instead, Xyp9x is still competing in the open qualifiers. This afternoon Astralis will play at 18:00 against HEET, Audric Jug’s team «jackz«. In the case of losing, the rifler will add to the end of the shox streak.
