This has been a landmark year for Counter-Strike. The 13 year old franchise is popular, lucrative, and highly competitive. Best of all, it’s returning to its former glory near the top of the eSports world.
As that popularity surges, we've found the best advertisement for the game yet. HLTV.org, an institution in the Counter-Strike community, just released a stellar list of the top 10 frags of 2013. Many of the biggest names in the game make cameos, whether they’re on the trigger or at the unfortunate end of some spectacular shots. Even if you’ve never watched a Counter-Strike match in your life, you should be able to appreciate the skill involved here.
Top 10 lists will always start arguments—that’s the whole point, really—but there’s no denying that these guys know how to handle their weapons.
