    Well guys it’s almost the end of “KZ in 2016, LUL” but I’m sure you’ll figure out how to adapt to the New Year. But with that I wanted to create an overview and highlight some important moments in KZ that happened during this past year.

    The first thing that comes to my mind is the KZ Cup that had tremendous support within and outside of our little community. It was truly the pinnacle of CSGO KZ to date and gave us some truly memorable moments. Some amazing moments, quotes and of course shitty kz memes. Starting off with the most obvious moment of 400$ ladder from my bro @linus . The popularization of CSGOKZSUCKSBOYS as a copy pasta courtesy of @ivansky that got many of us temporarily banned from the kz-climb channel due to no meme policy. But in my opinion the thing that sticks in my head the most from that time was the fact that a good pal and KZ legend zza left kz in one of the best possible ways, at the top. Of course this isn’t the only thing that happened in the past year but to me and many other kzers it was a great event.

    So onto the super sought-after Sachburger year-end awards!

    Conclusion

    And I’d just like to end this post giving a shout out to some community members that have stepped up recently. They have taken time out of their day to give back to the community (in no particular order): @Zach47 , @PlastiS , @Sikari , @kris , @DanZay , and of course everyone involved in the Global Team for doing their part in the kz community as this year draws to a close.

    great summary. only thing id change would be the "best video of the year" because even though the battle is a great idea i think theres still lot of room for improvement and some other vids really spiced it up like the map overview series by DanZay or the application video to SGDQ as it really was well made and showed the history of kz and how it translates in csgo.
    oh and you forgot this category:
