Nailed It and Failed It: EVO Japan and G2 in CS:GO

Each week we bring you two moments, one of epic success, someone who absolutely nailed it! And another of an epic failure, someone who totally failed it. This week on Nailed It and Failed It…

Nailed It!

We head to the Fighting Game Community for our Nailed It! EVO Japan took place a few weeks ago and fans were treated to quite the sight as an unlikely fighter came out on top. Sakura is widely accepted as one of the worst fighters on the Street Fighter V Roster. EventHubs lists her at the 33rd worst character on the 39 fighter line-up. That didn’t stop Nauman from using her to defeat Mago and take the crown in Street Fighter V at EVO Japan.

Failed It!

This week’s Failed It comes to us thanks to a blast from the past posted by the ESL Pro League twitter. It serves as a reminder of just how a true fail can live on in infamy for months and months. Flashback to Starladder Major Berlin just a few months ago where G2 threw away a round on match point to derail their own comeback.
