It seemed like the game ended in round 25, but Movistar Riders’ mopoz saved his team with an impossible 1vs3 clutch. However, his smart handling was not the focus of the match. Owen “smooya” Butterfield rage quit in the middle of the round, thinking that Nordavind is sure to win.
The 21-year-old player was defeated when he hit B. This AWPer quickly lost connection from the server, believing his teammates did not have a successful clutch. After mopoz did an impossible clutch, smooya was forced to reconnect and help Movistar Riders reach overtime, winning 2-1 in the final 19-16.

Even so, mopoz still defended Smooya and said that his teammates were not angry with him. Smooya then admitted to rage quit after the above video was revealed and voiced the issue on the long post Twitlonger. Although he apologized, he also questioned why people were criticizing him.
“Please understand that I am working very hard in everything to become a better person as well as a professional. That’s all I can do and I’ll continue to do it while trying not to make any more mistakes. Of course, I can’t avoid making wrong decisions in situations, but sometimes, I feel like my actions are judged more harshly than my past, ”smooya said.
While the Movistar Riders beat Nordavind in the intense series, the team was unable to take advantage of that morale. The boys lost to Cloud9 so they will not be able to attend DreamHack Masters Spring 2021. The question now is whether mopoz’s efforts to protect smooya are honest or are they still upset with the rage quit behavior of human players. This guy.
