One of the amazing BLAST Paris Major events to make history
Apeks became the 2nd team to gain a 16-0 victory, especially at a Major. The team defeated Grayhound, another efficient team, resembling Astralis. Astralis did this at FACEIT London Major and at IEM Katowice Major, both in 2018 and 2019 respectively. One of the main players who were able to pull off the victory for Apeks was Justinas “jL” Lekavicius, who provided his crucial 23 kills with an overall 2.01 rating. On the other hand, Apeks made history in the BLAST Paris Major as this was their first important tournament.

Comparison of Astralis and Apeks
Astralis is a team that is considered to be one of the best CS:GO teams in recent times. They have not only defeated MIBR but also gained a crucial win against Cloud 9. This makes them a team with strong vigour and talents in the game. Furthermore, the team also won the ELEAGUE Atlanta Major in 2017.
On the other hand, Apeks have been playing their first crucial tournament, with members of the team playing their first international tournament. Defeating Grayhound was not a matter of joke, as they have been persistent in their gameplay. After the defeat against Apeks, Greyhound members did not comment much but shared a cryptic meme showcasing their disappointment at the loss.
The victory of Apeks led them to reach the Challengers Stage in BLAST Paris Major, and with another three-way win, it will be easier for them to reach the Legendary stage. As of now, the entire CS:GO community is excited to see the team perform in the future, and make history like they did, with their efficient 16-0 streak.
