The ELEAGUE CS:GO Invitational 2019 kicked off, and teams have already played two matches. BIGCLANgg defeated compLexity 2-0, and Cloud9 beat FaZe Clan with the same result. However, this day will remind XANTARES of another awkward situation alongside BIGCLANgg’s win.

What can fit between XANTARES face and his screen?
Something weird happened during the first day of ELEAGUE Invitational. Namely, guys in commentators and analysts seats had to guess what is the distance between XANTARES face and his screen. Obviously, it was some kind of CS:GO challenge. Although it’s weird, it’s also very funny. One of the most annoying things that gamers can hear from their parents is to keep face far enough from the screen, otherwise they’ll become blind. According to their words, it’s not healthy for eyes. So, it was very interesting to see how far pro player keeps his head from the screen.
Moses Skull, Average Brahma rooster, or Desert Eagle Mark 19?
To make the whole thing even more amusing, commentators needed to guess what actually can fit between XANTARES face and his screen. There were three options: Moses Skull, Average light Brahma rooster, and Desert Eagle Mark 19. Each of these things’ dimensions was expressed in the metrical system instead of imperial, even though the tournament is played in the USA.
Guys in the studio then started looking for excuses because they didn’t know where the measuring started. They asked whether it is the distance between the nose and screen, or between face and screen. They clearly pointed out that it is important to know where measuring starts. Nevertheless, this was an interesting way to make CS:GO even more fun, and there definitely should be more challenges like this one.
