try first caught the common CS:GO audiences eye back in April last year, when he and the rest of 9z competed at the prominent BLAST Premier Spring Showdown against the Counter-Strike elite. In the initial match 9z was set to square up against the dominant Frenchmen from Vitality.

Despite going 1-on-1 against the Mathieu “ZywOo” Herbaut, try ended up dismantling the entire Vitality side through an outstanding show over three maps, leaving nothing on the server by averaging a stellar 1.57 Rating.
