The Republic of Gamers Extreme Gaming event, held in Prague over the weekend, saw an exhibition match of CS:GO between German visitors Penta and local Czechs eXtatus, with the key twist that it took place ten metres in the air, on a stage suspended by a crane.

Reddit user LopoGames has a helpful translation of the panicked conversation between the two casters, who had to take to the skies alongside the teams.

  • Caster1: Shut up! Hey, hey this is really not good. I want to go down.

  • Caster1: Hey you are a… Shut up! You are not helping!
  • Caster2: Can the crane operator please…

More photos are available on the Penta and eXtatus Twitter accounts. In the end, the stunning views of their hometown clearly inspired the locals, as eXtatus took the win.
