Inside The Longest Overtime In Pro Counter-Strike History

On the face of it, you wouldn't pick DenDD vs. PixelFire to be a classic Counter-Strike match. They're minor professional teams, far below the level of the Fnatics or Na'Vis of the world. But last weekend, they ended up making history: the first map of their best-of-three went into triple, then quadruple, and finally quintuple overtime. By the time the last shots were fired, they had played 79 straight rounds, in the longest map in the history of Counter-Strike LAN tournaments.

Both were fighting to survive the group stage of the European Minor Championship in Bucharest, which would guarantee $US2500 ($3,537) in prize money and a semifinal appearance. Minor stakes compared to what fans of top-tier Counter-Strike have gotten used to, but important to both teams. DenDD is best known as an online team, full of good Swedish players who've not quite made the jump to major teams and offline tournaments. PixelFire was a new name for a hard-working, journeyman team. Just over a week earlier, they had broken with their parent organisation over an attempt at match-fixing.

Counter-Strike maps are played for 30 rounds, and the first team to win 16 of those rounds wins the map. After 15 rounds, the side switch and the attacker becomes the defender and vice versa. If the score is tied at 30 rounds, they play an overtime period of ten rounds, and again until there is a winner.

DenDD got off to a great start on the counter-terrorist (CT) side of the Mirage map, but stumbled badly when it came time to play the terrorist (T) side. This isn't unusual for Mirage, which gives the CT side a real defender's advantage and requires some real finesse and planning from the T side. But DenDD started to collapse, allowing PixelFire to come back from a ten round deficit and force the first overtime.
