The Funniest Counter-Strike Memes Of All Time

Counter-Strike Funniest Memes

Have you just started playing Counter-Strike and are not up to speed with the meme game? If you don’t want to look like an outsider, it is important to understand the best CSGO memes so you can make jokes with the community. 

In this article, we’ll go through some of the most popular CSGO memes in history and the context behind them.

Jame Time

Jame Time Meme

The “Jame Time” meme is still highly prevalent and is one of the funniest CSGO memes the Counter-Strike community has ever produced. 

Dzhami “Jame” Ali is a professional player for Virtus.Pro, and he is the in-game leader and primary AWPer of the team. He is an extremely talented player, but has a unique playstyle that goes against the norm. 

Since he is the sniper of the team, Jame is often seen with the AWP, an extremely expensive weapon. The joke around Jame is that he is known to save his weapon even in winnable rounds. The funniest part is that statistics do not lie. Jame has one of the lowest average deaths per round among all professional players. 

Hence, everytime Jame saves his AWP, the Twitch chat will always spam “Jame Time.” This meme became incredibly popular in the Counter-Strike scene, and viewers would also spam the phrase if other players save their weapon. 

Boostmeister

The meme “Boostmeister” comes from the controversial incident surrounding legendary Fnatic player Olof “olofmeister” Kajbjer. 

The exploit happened in DreamHack Winter 2014, a CSGO Major. Fnatic played against Team LDLC. On the third map of the elimination game played on Overpass, Fnatic were down 3-13 and were on the brink of elimination. 

Feeling desperate, the Swedes decided to use a bug they found, where they made an illegal three-man boost where one player could see a large portion of the map without being spotted. The person at the top of the boost was olofmeister. 

Using the exploit, olofmeister was getting free kills on LDLC players every round without being detected. This allowed Fnatic to make an incredible comeback to win the map and series.

However, the community and professional players thought it was unfair. As a result, after the match ended, Fnatic forfeited the series, eliminating themselves from the tournament. Team LDLC continued their run in the tournament and went on to win the entire event. 

Dosia X God

Dosia X God

Mikhail “Dosia” Stolyarov is a retired professional Counter-Strike player and a Major winner. 

During the rise of Dosia’s Counter-Strike career, most members of the community made fun of him for not being the most attractive-looking guy. As a result, many fans called Dosia the “S*x God” in an ironic and condescending way, making jokes that he was going to steal everyone’s girl. 

Though the meme is considered insulting, Dosia decided to embrace the meme himself. For the MLG Columbus Major in 2016, Dosia wrote “X GOD” on his sticker signature and started calling himself that. 

His team, Gambit Esports, also uploaded a funny video doubling down on the meme. In 2017, Dosia also made a content piece with Beyond The Summit, where the skit was him launching his own cologne brand named “X GOD.”

EZ4ENCE

ENCE is easily the most successful Finnish organization in the Counter-Strike scene. 

While the ENCE roster was gradually improving, fans would type “EZ4ENCE” as a shortened version of “easy for ENCE.” 

This phrase was extremely catchy, so a band from Finland named The Verkkas made an entire song with the title. The track was released on February 10, 2019, and essentially became ENCE’s unofficial team anthem. 

At the IEM Katowice 2019 tournament, ENCE played the song for the team’s entrance to the stage. Despite being heavy underdogs, the Finnish squad made a very deep run, placing second in such a prestigious tournament. 

The song started trending and reached number 4 on Finland’s national Spotify charts. The Verkkas released a music video for the song, and Valve eventually added the track as a music kit you can buy and use in the game. 

The ENCE organization is still actively involved in the professional Counter-Strike scene, so make sure to type “EZ4ENCE” in the Twitch chat if you see them winning a match!

Zonic’s Law

The “Zonic’s Law” meme was popular in CSGO but, unfortunately, cannot be applied in CS2.

Danny “zonic” Sørensen was the coach of the legendary Astralis lineup that won four Majors. He is one of the most-respected coaches in Counter-Strike history. 

Zonic once said that an 11-4 lead at halftime was the scariest score the winning team could possibly get. He believed that 11-4 was too big of a lead that gave players a false sense of security. 

Throughout the years, we learned that zonic was not lying. There have been countless matches where teams up 11-4 have thrown their lead and lost the game. That is why every time a team ends the half with that scoreline, viewers tend to spam “Zonic’s Law.”

Unfortunately, CS2 brought a format change where there are only a maximum of 12 rounds per half, making the meme irrelevant. 

The neighboring first-person shooter game, Valorant, copied this meme format with their “9-3 curse” rule. 

HUNDEN Cam

Nicolai “HUNDEN” Petersen is a former professional player who has now turned into a coach. 

In 2021, HUNDEN was Heroic’s head coach, working with Casper “cadiaN” Møller. During that period, the COVID-19 situation was still a big deal, so all CSGO tournaments were played online. In this era, Heroic went from being a Top 30 team to one of the best in the world. 

It was later exposed that HUNDEN was using a spectator bug where his camera could move to certain positions on the map. Since he would be on the server during matches to spectate as a coach, he could see these positions in real-time as the match is going on, for example, the entirety of Banana on Inferno. 

After getting caught by ESIC, HUNDEN was sentenced to a two-year ban. Things didn’t get better, as HUNDEN tried dragging the Heroic roster down with him by suggesting that the players knew he was using this exploit, which they didn’t. 

The meme was lent to the Valorant community, as one of the game’s agents, Cypher, has an ability where he can place a camera on certain positions. As a result, some players call Cypher’s camera the “HUNDEN Cam”.

You are not my friend, you are my brother, my friend

This sentence comes from retired player Jarosław “pashaBiceps” Jarząbkowski. 

Pasha is one of the most-loved personalities in the Counter-Strike community. He’s an extremely muscular guy, good at the game, and a family man. It’s impossible to hate this guy. 

Since English is his second language, Pasha struggles to speak it fluently and always ends his sentences with “my friend.” Throughout his professional and streaming career, Pasha spouted out some funny quotes. 

One of his most popular quotes mentioned on his stream to a viewer is, “You are not my friend, you are my brother, my friend.” This extremely wholesome message quickly became repeated by CSGO fans, and some even printed the quote on T-shirts. 

Pasha had another funny incident. His team, Virtus.Pro, was set to play against a new international roster, Team Kinguin. Pasha was asked on his stream how he felt about playing against them. He said, “Kinguin my friend, what you talking about my friend? New Kinguin, they have a no chance. No chance, no chance” In the match between the two teams, Team Kinguin defeated Virtus.Pro 16-0. 

VACation

Valve’s infamous anti-cheat system is called “Valve Anti-Cheat,” or VAC for short.

Hovik “KQLY” Tovmassian was a professional player for Titan, where he played with legendary names such as Dan “apEX” Madesclaire and Kenny “kennyS” Schrub. 

In a professional online match, KQLY got VAC banned in the middle of the game. As a result, he became a meme of the community for cheating at a professional level. 

Though KQLY isn’t the only professional player who has gotten banned for cheating, he ignited the “VACation” meme in the Counter-Strike community. 

The joke is that professional players who receive bans will have a lot of free time since they have lost their jobs. So, fans would joke that they could have fun on their “VACation” from the game.  

I’m feeling thank you

The “I’m feeling thank you” meme originated from İsmailсan “XANTARES” Dörtkardeş, one of the most explosive professional players in the game.

At the start of his career, XANTARES faced the common issue of having a hard time speaking English, which many non-native English players go through. 

XANTARES was doing a content piece in a Go-kart location. The interviewer, content creator Mantrousse, asked him a simple question of how he was feeling. 

Our favorite Turk could not muster a proper response and mistakenly said, “I’m feeling thank you,” which was probably an error for “I’m feeling good, thank you.”

Alas, a new meme was born. Other professional players would jokingly use this response during interviews.
