Ethan “Ethan” Arnold of Evil Geniuses exhibited an incredible display of skills with a first round ace against Astralis, making a heroic entry at the CSGO 2021 BLAST Final.
The performance of Ethan in Evil Geniuses is often overshadowed
Recently, Evil Geniuses have been going through a slump. In the first map, Evil’s confident and aggressive play reminded the audience that the team was still in the game.
The performance of Ethan in Evil Geniuses is often overshadowed by the likes of Celik’s Tarik and Jarguz’s Peter’s Stanislaw. The American rifler, however, stepped into the center of attention from the start this time by gunning down the whole enemy roster in the first round of the initial opening match of BLAST Final.
On the T side, the quintet entered the map and faced minimum damage in its attempt to get the bomb down. Ethan had already taken care of Emil “Magisk” Reif defending the A site of Inferno. An aggressive squad of four, however, was on its way to recovering the site from the control of Evil. But Ethan had his own strategies.
The Danes took down the defenses of Evil Geniuses with Lukas “gla1ve” Rossander shutting down Vincent “Brehze” Cayonte in apartments and tarik in the pits. Tsvetelin’s “CeRq” Dimitrov’s failure to win a duel against Peter “dupreeh” Rasmussen left Ethan with a massive pressure on him to win one-on-three. The 20-year-old had already sent a deadly message from the A site to Nicolai “dev1ce” Reedtz.
Ethan wasn’t exactly in the perfect clutch spot. The American was up against Astralis’ three ace riflers, exposed from A short, apartments, and arches. Ethan pulled out his Glock in his critical situation and comfortably beat Andreas “Xyp9x” Højsleth and dupreeh in a smooth pistol spray, bringing the round down to a one versus one.
Ethan avenged his teammates with a final headshot against Danish in game leader Gla1ve on the balcony, wrapping up the first round win in an incredible way.
Evil Geniuses move to the lower bracket at BLAST Final
Ethan from Evil Geniuses fits nicely into the composed play style of the team and averages a rating of 1.13. This wasn’t the first time his team had been so affected by a game. This stylish entry into 2021, however, enables the player to enjoy the well-deserved highlight at the BLAST Final .
After a tight knit competition, Ethan’s striking K/D in the first map helped Evil grab the win. In the next two maps, the team’s performance declined as Astralis pounced on Evil for a 2-1 series victory.
