Top 20 players of 2015: Happy (8)
By: stich
Time: 2016-01-13 21:41
Game: Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

Number 8 on our top 20 ranking powered by EGB.com goes to Vincent 'Happy' Schopenhauer who is returning to the list for his second year in a row. Schopenhauer's combination of in-game leading and highly impactful play made him a deadly force to be reckoned with in 2015.

Vincent "Happy" Schopenhauer's career, like that of the current ninth best player in the world and EnVyUs teammate Nathan "NBK-" Schmitt, kicked off in CS:Source back in 2007 and also saw him playing with the purported Godfather of the French scene KÚvin "Ex6TenZ" Droolans for a spell.

A switch to CS:GO meant a switch of aliases (he used to play under the alias ‘EMSTQD’) as well as Happy creating a team with Mathieu "Maniac" Quiquerez and Dan "apEX" Madesclaire that would become the LDLC of that time. A few roster shuffles and organisation swaps later, and Happy was on his way to the first major in CS:GO under the Recursive name alongside talent Kenny "kennyS" Schrub.

This first major already gave an inkling of the success that was to come Happy's way in the future as Recursive took down iBUYPOWER and Universal Soldiers to become the little French team that could and advanced to the playoffs, thereby guaranteeing Happy a high benchmark for 2014.

Happy back at the first CS:GO major: DreamHack Winter 2013

And 2014 was indeed Happy's year (who then was still using the appellation Cervoni, an alternate last name in his family) as the French leader brought his team to ever higher placings at successive CS:GO events and also managed to make the playoffs of both EMS One Katowice (before losing to red-hot event winners Virtus.pro) and ESL One Cologne (where a LDLC lineup with Hovik "KQLY" Tovmassian nearly made the finals over NiP in a nailbiter). Happy also brought LDLC their first title at DreamHack Valencia 2014 that summer.

After Cologne, the great French roster shuffle occurred and Happy teamed up with NBK- and Richard "shox" Papillon to form a new LDLC lineup who immediately kicked things off on the right foot by winning the StarSeries XI finals.

The team, which also included Fabien "kioShiMa" Fiey and Edouard "SmithZz" Dubourdeaux, continued to poll highly and achieve strong placements, until the major of DreamHack Winter 2014 which saw Happy put in a MVP performance to lead his team to winning the whole event (some quarter-finals controversy aside).

For his efforts in 2014 as in-game leader, and then as a player who blossomed into being a star in his own right by the end of the year, HLTV.org ranked Happy as the tenth best player in the world for 2014.

MLG X-Games Aspen was the first event of 2015 for LDLC and Happy did not renege on his upwards statistical and tactical progress (2014 saw the players' individual play only move up) by putting in a prodigious 1.31 rating and +62kdd. In a group stage clash with rivals fnatic, Happy pulled in an astounding 1.90 rating with a 29-10 scoreline.

Happy's efforts earned him the MVP of the tournament, for his second straight event in a row. He had the highest rating, highest kill-death differential, highest kill & assists per round (0.92), highest total kills (213), highest kills per round (0.88), and highest 1+ kill rounds at the event (54.3%), qualifying as a performance that may go down in history for Happy's part in bringing LDLC a gold medal at the event.

LDLC had clearly drawn enough attention as a team to warrant offers from bigger organisations in the world of esports and such a forthcoming offer from EnVyUs saw the Frenchmen apparelled all in blue and sporting Monster Energy logos.

Inferno Online Pantamera Challenge in Sweden was next where EnVyUs went out in the semifinals to fnatic in a match that continued a longstanding rivalry and where Happy was one of two teammates to achieve a positive result in the series (1.11 and +7kdd, the other teammate was NBK-). Overall for the event, Happy was yet again the highest rated for his team with a 1.19/+37kdd and had a number of other impressive stats despite the team's 3-4th place finish, though he led in none.

Time came for the first major of 2015 in ESL One Katowice and Happy yet again led his men to a playoffs run as the team managed to finish 3-4th before losing to NiP somewhat convincingly in the semifinal. Something interesting transpired however with Happy's play, and this tidbit would continue to pester him throughout 2015, which is that he unperformed overall at the major with a 1.00 rating/+1 kdd (fourth ranked in his team).

Somewhat stumped in Katowice

With shox as another nexus of fragging power for EnVyUs, Happy underperforming was not necessarily a gamechanger for the French powerhouse, however his disappearance from the major certainly did not help in nV's failure to win back-to-back majors at the time.

Gfinity Spring Masters I, which as previously mentioned was NBK-'s MVP event of the year, saw Happy step back more complacently into the IGL role as he led his boys to a second straight title in 2015 and himself put up a decent 1.11/+28kdd result.

It was at the next event, StarSeries XII finals, that Happy would yet again unleash his inner beast and pick up his second MVP performance of the year with a dominant 1.39 rating and +60kdd showing. The event in Kiev saw EnVyUs smash NiP in the grand finals with no contest (where Happy led the team with a 48-25 scoreline across two maps and a 1.64 rating) and win another gold medal, their third of the year.

Aside from leading in rating and KD-differential at the event, Happy was also an event leader in kill & assists per round (1.04), kills per round (0.96), 1+ kill rounds (63.4%), and survived, kill or assist %(77%).

Next up were the ESL Pro League Winter 2014/2015 finals where EnVyUs finished 3-4th place as well, losing to Na`Vi (a team who were beginning to warm up in 2015 due to the addition of youngster Egor "flamie" Vasilyev) 1-2 in the semifinals. Despite not winning the event, Happy again finished with the highest rating of his teammates, 1.23 with a +37kdd.

StarSeries XII was Happy's second MVP performance of the year

The CCS Kick-off Season finals would represent the first true disappointing finish for EnVyUs in the year (excluding the inability to win Katowice as previous major champions) as the team finished in last place in Romania after losses to both NiP and fnatic. This time around it was only Happy and his teammate kioShiMa who stayed above the 1.0 rating waterline, with the former player pulling in a 1.04/+5kdd.

We finally managed to interview the leader in 2015 at this event, where nV finished in last place, and Happy spoke frankly about the losses as well as about the increasingly level playing field at the top of the scene.

At DreamHack Open Tours, EnVyUs struggled somewhat in the group stage (going into a triple overtime against LDLC White) as well as in the semifinal (going into a close overtime against dignitas on one map). nV lost the grand final 1-2 to fnatic to finish 2nd and Happy was rated highest in his team, 1.10/+22kdd.

At Gfinity Spring Masters II, nV failed to advance from their round robin group due to a three-way tie with Virtus.pro and Titan (nV had three rounds less in round differential) and even more interestingly for Happy, he achieved a 1.40 rating/+66kdd, his highest rating in 2015 and second best kill-death differential of the year.

Although EnVyUs failed to exit the groups of this event, Happy had the highest rating at the event, the second highest KD-differential,  the highest kills & assists per round (1.00), the highest kills per round (0.95), the highest amount of 1+ kill rounds (59.1%), and the highest success in opening duels (89.3%).

Therefore, some of Happy's success as a leader clearly comes from his ability to play as a one-man army even when his teammates are underperforming, an ability which is also facilitated by his overall tendency to be a passive player and not feed kills to his opponents on either side.

A volatile duo at times in the first EnVyUs lineup

The next few events for Happy were a little muted as the summer rolled around, starting with the StarSeries XIII finals where EnVyUs survived a shaky group stage (losses to GPlay and FlipSid3 included) and ultimately lost to a very strong Na`Vi outfit 1-3 in the grand finals. Here Happy was second best on his team overall with a 1.08 rating and +36kdd, including leading his team in the grand final and finishing the event with the lowest amount of deaths per round (0.60).

At Gfinity Summer Masters I, EnVyUs battled their way through opposition such as Cloud9, mousesports, and dignitas (giving up maps in all three series), before pulling away to an unreachable level in the grand final against NiP and winning 3-0. Happy was outperformed by two teammates this time around (shox stepped up to the plate in particular) and finished at 1.11/+48kdd with the highest amount of 1+ kill rounds (55.5%).

HLTV.org conducted a text interview with Happy after the win (their fourth of 2015) at Gfinity Summer, where he seemed to suggest that NiP were severely underperforming in that grand final and also spoke of the team's upcoming gruelling event attendance plans for the summer.

The summer definitely got off to a wrong foot as Happy and his team finished a tepid 5-6th at the ESL ESEA Pro League Season 1 finals, which at $250,000 was supposed to be one of the premium events of the year. Happy was the second best performer for his team (1.07 rating/+12kdd) in a run that is mostly famous for double losses to Cloud9, first in a best-of-one and then in a best-of-three. Rumours flew of late nights and late arrivals afterward.

The poor showing at EEPL Season 1 and an overall sense of frustration within the team boiled over at ESWC 2015 in Montreal, where EnVyUs went out in the semifinals after yet another loss to Cloud9. While finishing within the top four may seem par for the course with nV, anyone watching that game and seeing the French team buy P90's on gunrounds rather nonchalantly may have been a little suspicious about the team's coordination as a unit.

Happy himself performed fourth best on his team with a 1.08 rating/+24kdd but much of nV's strong statistics from this event come from a fairly weak group stage which the Frenchmen topped with ease.

In an interview with HLTV.org, Happy cautiously worded his team's performance as the result of “burn-out” from travel while outside of the event, all signs pointed to an incoming roster swap.

Happy performed under all circumstances in 2015 

The swap happened and saw shox and SmithZz out of the team and kennyS and apEX brought in from Titan. Happy, who was no stranger to both big swaps such as these as well as to playing with kennyS and apEX in previous outings in 2013 and 2014, was suddenly cleared of internal tensions in the team and free to steer his new lineup towards a more skill-leveraged future.

The new EnVyUs lineup had a few weeks to recuperate and mesh and they debuted at IEM Gamescom, an Intel Extreme Masters stop that featured a somewhat wacky format of teams choosing match-ups and maps for other teams.

Happy was clearly feeling happy (no pun intended) with his new lineup as the player put in his final MVP performance of the year, clocking in a masterful 1.33 rating and +71kdd. He also topped the charts in kills & assists per round (1.00), total kills (231), kills per round (0.95), 1+ kill rounds (60.2%), and survived, kill or assist% (73.4%).

nV walked away with some pride in having taken down TSM in three best-of-one's in the quasi-final, since the Danes were currently being billed as a team making a gambit for best in the world. This confidence carried forward into the second major of the year, ESL One Cologne, as Happy himself told us that the team had a chance to win the major.

The new lineup were not yet ready to be champions in Cologne 

With minimal practice and a loose playstyle that allowed his newfound stars kennyS and apEX to shine, EnVyUs were able to make the grand finals of the major and defeat two rivals in the form of Na`Vi (2-0) and TSM (2-1) along the way before finally being taken down rather convincingly by fnatic in the grand final. Much of nV suffered in the grand final, although Happy did perform best in his team with a 1.14 rating.

He was second best at the event as a whole (1.02 rating and +5kdd), however the storyline that was revealed overall for EnVyUs is that the new roster had potential but had not fully capitalised on it yet, something which would still undergo one more trial by fire (one of the team's overall weakest results in 2015).

This trial by fire aptly took place in the scorching locale of Dubai where Happy recorded his only placing in the red for 2015 (0.88 and -13kdd) and was only beaten by NBK-, who equally struggled. nV finished 5-6th place and seemed lost as a reinvigorated NiP was the straw that broke the camel's back and brought the elite team back to the drawing board.

IEM Gamescom and ESL One Cologne had shown that the roster had potential however, and Happy was by no means ready to begin a slump in his career.

The turnaround was already underway in autumn's beginning at DreamHack Open London, an event which nV masterfully won including in a grand final where Happy's men obliterated TSM and where Happy himself got our play of the year by using a Desert Eagle on a force buyround to disastrous effect against the Danes.

Statistically, Happy once again took a backseat role and allowed kennyS to shine in London (where the AWPer was MVP of the event), and the team's leader finished third best in his team with a 1.11/+18kdd.

Happy front and center in a new and dominant nV lineup

The Gfinity Champion of Champions event brought together the four previous major winning organisations and it turned out to be another gold medal secured for EnVyUs after the past weekend's run at DreamHack, as the Boys in Blue were able to narrowly win against Virtus.pro and fnatic in 3-2 series apiece. Happy was back in the lead of his team this time around with a 1.13/+37kdd showing and narrowly missed out on being the event's MVP himself.

With six tournament wins now under his belt, Happy no doubt felt even more confident than he had previously been before Cologne as EnVyUs geared up for the final major of the year: DreamHack Open Cluj-Napoca.

The first piece of business the team undertook after surviving the group stage was dispatching fnatic in the quarter-finals (where Happy was the team's second best performer) and sending one of the event favourites out of the tournament and home early. Happy reflected on this victory and on the strength of Luminosity in that event in our interview from Cluj-Napoca.

A noteworthy performance at a major was a first for Happy in 2015

After narrowly defeating G2 in the semifinals, nV stood in the grand final against Na`Vi who had made such a high major ascent for the first time in CS:GO. The day was meant for Happy and his team though as they managed to show up in a big way to win CS:GO's seventh major.

Cluj-Napoca was important for Happy because a common storyline of 2015 had been his underperformance at the biggest events (or at least deviating from his overall offline average), and this major was finally an opportunity for Happy to make a big impact for his team when it mattered as the he brought in a 1.14 rating and +41kdd.

In the final two events of the year, EnVyUs are commonly seen as beginning to list while at sea, as the team finished 7-8th at the $250,000 FACEIT Stage 3 finals at DreamHack Winter and were unable to defeat Na`Vi in the semifinals of the $250,000 ESL ESEA Pro League Season 2 finals, thereby finishing 3-4th place.

Oddly enough, Happy was undaunted at FACEIT Stage 3 despite his team's struggles against NiP and a red-hot Luminosity and achieved a team-best 1.23 rating/+16kdd, unusually high for a team that goes out of a tournament after two lost matches. In Burbank, California for EEPL Season 2, Happy finished second best at 1.06/+11kdd as the team did manage to take down fnatic and Liquid with 2-0 scorelines before Na`Vi enacted revenge in the semifinals.

Why is he the 8th best player of 2015?

Happy's 2015, as well as his previous career form in 2014 and 2013, make the succinct case that he is a player who rarely ever missteps at events, regardless of how his team ends up placing.

His tendency to often finish first or second highest in rating at events and a bevy of statistics make the case for someone who could be ranked a top five player in the world: third most kills per round (0.80), the highest KD-differential in 2015 (+624kdd), the second highest kill, assist or survive percentage (68.7%), the second highest pistol kills per round (0.18), and 85.7% of his maps this year have seen him with above a 0.85 rating, making him the world's best in not having bad games.

However, he has slumped in other areas, most notably he is one of the players whose kills overall made the least impact on a game: Happy has the highest rating in rounds lost out of all players in the top 20. And in the largest events ($250,000 in prize money or majors), his overall performance was below his yearly average except at DreamHack Cluj-Napoca as previously mentioned.

Fragging and in-game leading are very possible when Schopenhauer is involved 

Regardless, Happy has been a driving force behind EnVyUs' success this year and in more ways than just as an in-game leader of some of the game's premium talent (in either lineup). His three MVP titles this year show that he can contend and excel on his own terms, and is not just the puppeteer behind highly talented puppets.

Happy's determination to continue steering the ship of the most successful French team, coupled with his hands-off style of leadership, stand in stark contrast to Ex6TenZ whose teams have been unable to attain the same degree of success abroad.

As far as in-game leaders go, Happy is a potent force. He will rarely play poorly or make mistakes in games and instead allows the action to come to him, using a deep gamesense and spatial awareness on the map to exploit other team's weaknesses. He is able to send his teammates out onto the battlefield to wreak havoc, while also weaving in-and-out of their successes and cleaning up the rest of the enemy.

Happy stood in front of EnVyUs and led the charge to the team's multiple event wins this year, rather than engineering from the backline, and is thus the eighth best player in the world this year.

Totally not deserved. He should be at least top 5.
2016-01-13 21:43:54
Olofmeister, kennyS, flusha, Device, Guardian.

These players has been #1 player in the world during 2015, some briefer then others. Happy has not, so it's quite simple to understand how he isn't in top 5
2016-01-13 21:47:05
1.kennyS has NEVER been top 1 this year.
2.Happy was top 1 from January - April
3.'These players has been #1 player in the world during 2015, some briefer then others. Happy has not, so it's quite simple to understand how he isn't in top 5'
Wait, so if he was top 2 for the entire year he still wouldn't have been top 5?
2016-01-13 21:49:50
yes, lets just leave out the first 3 months where kennyS was the best player in the world in quite a dominant fashion actually.
2016-01-13 22:04:12
what did he achieve?
50 kills in a game they lost?
2016-01-13 22:07:18
holy shit ? he was the best player in terms of individual skill not in terms of achievement

are u retarded cause you are from BULGARIA ?

why are s1mple and NiKo not in the top 20?
They are in EVERY statistic of frags and shit.
Is it because they are from BOSNIA and UKRAINE?!?!!?!?!??!
2016-01-13 22:14:49
Because this is about achievements as well and NiKo/s1mple doesn't not even come close to top 20 there. Need to look at the bigger picture. If those two played in better teams and actually won something then sure.
2016-01-14 14:17:45
i am saying that as a joke, he said that kennyS is better because he was the best individually in the start of the year, but he didn't win a single thing
2016-01-14 14:22:17
Ah right, sorry :P
2016-01-15 19:37:10
kennyS was literally a god for the first 2.5-3 months are you high?

although I agree happy is top6 material at least
2016-01-13 22:05:33

2016-01-13 22:33:49
They are superb players but they didn't won enough this year and for coldzera he is playing since the summer for them.

I have no doubt that if they continue their good run, one or two brazilians will be in the top 20 players list next year.

yep i don't think player like krimz or device are better than him.. a bit dissapointed here
2016-01-13 22:04:36
Krimz is much better than happy in terms of fraggin
U r right about device tho
2016-01-14 00:37:20
+1 He's the reason why Envy was so successful this year. He's the best IGL in CSGO atm, as a mastermind and a fragger.
Would've put him at #4.
2016-01-13 23:21:08
Then should we call FalleN around 1-3? Not being a troll.
I know LG had less months in a good performance, but still, he has been a good IGL (based on their performance as a team) and carrying hard af being a great awper.
2016-01-14 04:23:09
for how long bro ?
Happy had done this for whole year and got success too without any doubt
2016-01-14 07:36:14
Ya, I know, fallen good moments had been recently
2016-01-14 07:38:04
if fallen keeps up playing like this , then ya he'll be on top 20 in 2016 for sure
2016-01-14 07:40:01
Because he was good but apparently not good enough to get his team into a Top 3 position (which Envy was for pretty much the whole year).
2016-01-14 08:11:44
2016-01-13 21:42:02
wtf he should be on top 5 .-.

2016-01-13 21:47:56
well i am pretty sure that majority of people on this site has short memory.

it was even happy before olof that connected few months.
same time lets say with olof and olof even more after that
2016-01-13 21:50:38
wtf are you talking about? i remember the entire year. olof was the #1 player from katowice until december with a couple of months where he dropped off after the summer, but never ever did happy replace his spot. no one has even suggested he's the best player in the world during any point of time during this year. jesus christ man.
2016-01-13 21:53:54
Didnt say he was number 1
But he had many good cups with huge kd difference with like 50 60 and did good for 4 months in a row and olof did it for 7
2016-01-14 01:01:56
Actually Kenny was the Number 1 in the first part of 2015, he was in Godmode, while Happy was just a very good player.

Not expected. He deserved a higher ranking than #8.
2016-01-13 21:43:24
2016-01-13 21:43:25
should b way better
2016-01-13 21:43:27
NBK > Happy
Happy just looks better because NBK baits for him. :D
2016-01-13 21:43:40
This is just my opinion, but I think NBK should be over Happy.
2016-01-13 21:43:44
should be higher
2016-01-13 21:43:48
2016-01-13 21:43:52
top8? he was top3 at least lol
2016-01-13 21:44:15
maybe top 4
Flusha/Device could be higher than him.
but ye he shouldnt have been at nr 8
2016-01-13 21:51:14
Device top4, lmao.

holy fuck.kennys > happy? Is this from parallel universe?
2016-01-13 21:44:46

Not expected at all. Happy is WAAAAAAAAAY more consistent than kennyS, plus he's the mind behind Envy's success.
2016-01-13 22:40:32
"However, he has slumped in other areas, most notably he is one of the players whose kills overall made the least impact on a game: Schopenhauer has the highest rating in rounds lost out of all players in the top 20"

I'm so glad this list put some emphasis on this statistic, being a baiter shouldn't place you higher on the list.
2016-01-13 21:45:00
2016-01-13 22:01:04
same, I really expected happy to place higher and I'm glad this ranking didn't overrate him like everyone else on hltv seems to.
2016-01-13 22:09:05
Should be in top5

But I can understand why only 8th

Not so many impact rounds etc

Happy never peeks unless he's perfectly flashed in or baited for by at least one teammate. It's just insane. By far the biggest rat in CS history. Feel so bad for his teammates. He's dragging them down to stroke his own ego and compensate for his Napoleon complex.

plus he is the first one to go after kills on anti-eco rounds and guaranteed rounds
2016-01-13 21:53:07
And he is the one who make nV top1-2 for almost the entire year.

Yeah, i agree with you. Completely undeserved. They should take ex6tenz now that Titan is out. With him, they can be top20. That's better.
2016-01-13 23:00:01
based on your logic pronax should be top10
2016-01-13 23:09:53
Based on your logic, fallen should be top1.
2016-01-13 23:59:56
tbh ex6tenz would probably do a better job utilizing that talent on their lineup
2016-01-13 23:23:50
Envy with ex6tenz would never be as good as envy with happy

2016-01-13 21:46:07
Lolwat? Team fisherman who goes for exit frags in 3v5s, essentially useless IGL who rarely utilizes any tactics, and tries to take AWP out of Kenny's hands because his ego is larger than all of NA CS.
2016-01-14 03:14:01
A lot of people do fail to realise the fact Happy sometimes has very little impact frags, yet is high on the scoreboard overall. He's a world class player, but gets overrated slightly due to this.
2016-01-13 21:46:42
Happy never peeks unless he's perfectly flashed in or baited for by at least one teammate. It's just insane. By far the biggest rat in CS history. Feel so bad for his teammates. He's dragging them down to stroke his own ego and compensate for his Napoleon complex.
2016-01-13 21:46:42
lmao, the stuff you can read on hltv is insane sometimes
2016-01-13 21:49:42
too bad it's real and happens in all the games they play. open your eyes and stop being blinded by nationalism.
2016-01-13 21:50:18
first, i don't give a shit about nv and other french teams. Second, happy's role is played in every top team, if you think it is unique to him, you're deluded, or you don't pay attention to the games you're watching.
2016-01-13 22:16:18
cmon man the statistics are right there, and it's clearly stated in the article that he's the biggest baiter
2016-01-13 23:25:37
i'm not denying that, i'm saying he's not the only one doing that, and there's nothing wrong with baiting
2016-01-13 23:26:51
he is great entry too as prooved in the article..he is like gtr x10 and gtr got number 1 spot last year
2016-01-14 12:31:22
maybe someone in G2 should start doing that too cause being 2 round away from losing 2-0 to a chinese team is worrying =)
2016-01-13 23:29:04
You can remove that French flag of yours, your comments are so stupid and biased that people don't even need to see it to know where you're from.
2016-01-13 22:11:27
if i don't agree with an opinion, i'm biased, ok...
2016-01-13 22:17:14
It's not about having an opinion, but rather being able to argue for it. Insulting people left and right and saying things like "you don't pay attention to the games you're watching" doesn't prove anything.
2016-01-13 22:19:54
where do you see me insulting anybody ?
Happy is the kinda guy you'll see waiting long on inferno when his team is rushing b to kill the rotating cts, and guess what, every pro team has that kind of player that will try to do stuff like this, this is how cs works.
2016-01-13 22:22:12
That's obviously not his point, I think we all understand the role of a standard lurker here. The problem is that Happy isn't that. You're talking about mid/late round stuff which is irrelevant to the issue, I think the HLTV article sums it up pretty well: "However, he [Happy] has slumped in other areas, most notably he is one of the players whose kills overall made the least impact on a game: Schopenhauer has the highest rating in rounds lost out of all players in the top 20."

Happy isn't always lurking, he often lets Kio/apEX run into a site like madmen while somebody else flashes him in so that he gets the easy frags/clean-up.

F*ck the highlights, he was Envy's best player the whole year. Previous year Kenny did fantastic things with Titan, but this year he did NOTHING by the time playing in Titan and STILL hltv will rank him 5 in worst case scenario. Happy deserved higher spot for being the best player in years second best team even though he is an igl.
2016-01-13 21:59:39

CRAZY to see so many people thinking he deserves top 5. This guy has let his teammates die soo many times while he just held back during retakes, just so he can stat pad some more by getting exit frags even though they lose the round. You might ask yourself if anyone can really be that stupid in the highest echelon of the pro scene, but it's a reality. GTR admitted to doing the same in 1.6 when HLTV ratings were added.
2016-01-13 21:52:25

When did GT say this? Never heard of it, so don't believe you until you give me proof.

GT would never BAIT his mates to get kills and not care about winning the round. GT have always been more about winning than playing fot himself.

Btw he became a some kind of a "lurker" in SK-gaming, never was that in the other teams.

These lies.. :))

Wasn´t his surname Cervoni?
2016-01-13 21:52:27
Yeah, but then he changed it because he's a narcissistic boy who wants admiration from the public and figured he might get some more of said admiration by taking the name of a revered German philosopher by the name of Schopenhauer.

In intellectual circles, it would be like me taking the name of Mozart.
2016-01-13 21:59:08
I'm confused, Liquipedia lists him as Vincent Cervoni Schopenhauer. So what's his actual surname? Did he just start calling himself Vincent Schopenhauer? I've always wondered..

If he just started calling himself Vincent Schopenhauer that'd be quite hilarious.
2016-01-13 22:37:41
i mean the logic would be that his mom his cervoni and his dad schoppenhaur or reverse ^^

It doesn't fucking matter how many frags you get when you're letting your teammates die just so you can get them, even though you lose the round in the end despite getting exit frags and saving your gun. That's what SO MANY of his kills are. Worthless, pointless frags that do nothing other than help control the economy of the opposing team and stat pad for fame and fanboys like yourself.
2016-01-13 21:56:37

Happy 8th, it's bullshit. He deserves AT LEAST to be in the TOP5.
Last year kennyS didn't reach the first spot because his team didn't succeed, this year nv was ranked 2nd best team in the world, happy has incredible stats, PLUS he is IGL.

In 2015, he is far better than snax, kennys, krimz, and even device.

I'm just thinking you put your favorite players where you want them to be, it's very objective WP.

"Schopenhauer has the highest rating in rounds lost out of all players in the top 20."

So, if he made 4 kills in a 2v4 situation and still loose the round because of not enough time to difuse. This is bad for his place on HLTV rankings. Nice use of statistics as always HLTV.
2016-01-13 22:18:01
OF COURSE IT IS. That's a crucial part of the game. Time management. The 4 kills aren't NEARLY as valuable if you lose the round... Jesus christ. Why do you think just dragging out time to have the bomb explode can sometimes be smarter than killing the CT's trying to defuse? Or how you just have to try and stick the defuse sometimes instead of getting the last kills first because it's the only way to win the round. Omfg, french logic.

2016-01-14 13:12:31
yea but you know random tard on HLTV think they know better than seized that actually played against every top player
2016-01-14 20:32:03
So olof, guardian, flusha, snax, krimz, device and... pasha?(O.o) remaining?
2016-01-13 22:20:21
kennys (i know, kenny > happy what a joke)
2016-01-13 22:22:07
makes more sense than pasha, totally forgot about him.
I agree that happy > kennyS
2016-01-13 22:23:59

2016-01-13 22:31:01
Most kills: 58 in one map? wtf
2016-01-13 22:33:04
This ranking was already a joke but it seems the guy who did this wants to be remembered for his shit list.

So as I was suspecting they just placed the best NV player 8th just because of one statistic following most of the HLTV kids logic.

So the "baiting" stat is similar to the JW one but the guy considers JW should be 10 with a trash year not being consistent during the year and sucking at majors but hey a 1.03 and a 1.15 with only a difference of two ranks.

Funnily enough, for the HLTV guy consistency matters only when he has to put a guy high so he can have an excuse for the stupid placement. But then the guy with the most consistent year doesn't even get mentioned as "being consistent" and doesn't get rewarded for that.

I fucking love HLTV consistent and not contradictory logic at all.

Being at the top in a lot of categories seems not to matter as much as that one stat. MVP on three tournaments also not matter that much.

Doesn't mention his rating in 250k events, just says it's worse than its average all year. BUT IF his average is 1.15 is it "bad" and being above average in the one major they win is not VERY impressive?

Also being IGL which HLTV almost doesn't mention + topfragger should give you an extra plus. It's unbelievable this guy doesn't even consider that.

Overall it's just pretty obvious how biased is the guy who made this list as shown in other placements as well. Considering all stats it's unreasonable to put Happy anything below top6 but HLTV show once again their incompetence.

Lol his IGL consists of basically telling Kio and Apex to go somewhere and then looking smart when they get amazing entries. Happy is a baiter who sets himself up to look good. EnVyUs are helpless against top teams when they don't have 3 people hitting all their shots.
2016-01-13 22:43:55
Other IGL don't send their entry fraggers to spots where they can shine right? Youre fucking dumb if you think they don't have any strats or the only job he does is that, why don't they change IGL then? It may be because he's good at it? Wh would have thought...

You shut the fuck up, have you actually read my oost at all before posting? I already know he has that rating idiot but as I said that is not bad considering he has a 1.14 in the MAJOR THEY WON.

Also if you weren't so close minded you would have seen in the major rating list you linked that JW IS IN THE BOTTOM WITH 0.93 RATING with a trash year but still top10 which is a complete joke as there were much better players below him but ofc you don't mention that as the clueless idiot you are. Also this is just one stat of all the factors to consider when making a top20 list but why would you know...
2016-01-13 23:45:14
lel, go and eat some Jelly frog legs and calm down
2016-01-14 11:12:26
Lmao that's all you come up with? Come back when you have some arguments
2016-01-14 14:50:01
+1. Don't mind the HLTV rankings. It's pure bullshit anyways.

pasha was #3 last year, GTR #1...
2016-01-13 23:24:38
happy hahaha, from zero to hero...
2016-01-13 22:39:03
explain me why Schopenhauer and not Cervoni? Have I missed smth?
2016-01-13 22:42:17
Vincent Cervoni Schopenahuer.
2016-01-14 03:16:04
He deserves the #4/ #5 spot imo...
2016-01-13 22:49:49
should be higher imo but dunno
2016-01-13 22:51:42
Happy deserve a top 5
2016-01-13 23:00:10
So all of his attributes are atleast top #3, yet he's top 8? HLTV plz
2016-01-13 23:02:30
No. He has by far the most non-impact frags of anyone as you can see in this article. That's why his attributes are so high.
2016-01-13 23:05:40
He still deserves top 5
2016-01-13 23:08:20
No, I don't even think he deserves top 10. He lets his team die so many times so he can save and get exit frags to stat pad. Also sucked at majors http://www.hltv.org/?pageid=173&statsfilter=15..
2016-01-13 23:09:41
This guy gets it. +1
2016-01-14 03:50:57
happy deserves top 5, this ranking is a meme itself
2016-01-13 23:04:26
Happy 8th WTF ? At least 5 no ?
I guess i'll read the article before I cry more ;((

Most important player in envy, should be top 5. Whatever :D
2016-01-13 23:06:34
lol, imo top5...
2016-01-13 23:17:53
overrated guy, stat pads a lot, retards on hltv love stats so ofc they are gonna say he should be higher
2016-01-13 23:23:44
2016-01-14 00:04:21
he is IGL and in top 3 best fraggers of 2015. you;re fucking stupid
2016-01-14 02:50:43
hahaha fuck you faggot, learn to counter strike , he gets a lot of exit frags and baits bad to secure k/d , he should've got cut long ago and they should've bring up ex6tenz , with Ex6tenz lead they would've elevate their level of success so fucking much , it would've been the EnVyUs era.
2016-01-14 02:52:13
ex6 should be cut off titan, which shows how ignorant and completely clueless you are. it's like you have never watched a nV or Titan game in your life roflll. happy is top 3 player in the world, there's not a single doubt about it. he's a igl lurker.
2016-01-14 02:53:42
I think you're a CoD piece of filthy shit , who only cares about KD and Frags , Happy bait his teammates so bad it's annoying to just watch him.
You're a fucking ignorant nigger if you don't know how genius Ex6tenz is , never forget, Ex6tenz was much more dominant with VeryGames than what Happy is with EnVy/LDLC
2016-01-14 03:00:21
ex6 has been fucking horrible for the past 12 months, and I've been watching ex6 since 2008

and then you woke up
2016-01-14 04:51:38
its ok if u cant get 60fps in csgo yet in 3rld world country hahaha
2016-01-14 04:52:18
i've been playing since 2002 in 1.3 , fps are not enough to hold me back breh (tho i get 180fps)
meanwhile you play at 1080p 60fps cuz thats how CoDe runs on powerstation 4
2016-01-14 04:53:40
cut ? hahah wtf hes easily the best in his team, stop with the hate, there is a reason why every french player wants to join him
2016-01-14 09:34:58
Expected him to be #4 or #5, but fine for me as #8.
2016-01-13 23:31:27
Happy never peeks unless he's perfectly flashed in or baited for by at least one teammate. It's just insane. By far the biggest rat in CS history. Feel so bad for his teammates. He's dragging them down to stroke his own ego and compensate for his Napoleon complex.

People who don't understand dank memes.
2016-01-15 18:14:38
I hate retards like you who just repeat what other retards said and now everybody thinks that happy is impactless with the mere reasoning of: "i know this since im a silver and can proffesionally analuze the stream"
2016-01-14 06:50:59
his excuse is that it is one big meme apparently. if that doesn't work he'll resort to calling it a b8.
2016-01-15 18:25:11
2016-01-15 18:41:19
the only player i actually hate in CS GO
2016-01-13 23:52:42
The least individually skilled player on that top 20 list.
2016-01-13 23:57:00
Deserved. Perhaps even overrated, as player stats aren't detailed enough to show how little impact his kills have.
2016-01-14 00:03:31
disappointing but happy still very cute doe :)
2016-01-14 00:07:02
Again top 2/3 player (like NBK) getting incerdible low placement by HLTV. Just because he's French...?
2016-01-14 00:12:10
Lol, actually NBK dont deserve slot in top 10. There will be KennyS for sure too so calm your tits baguette
2016-01-14 01:03:31
yep writers are either salty or retarded
2016-01-14 08:22:29
He really deserved better
2016-01-14 13:05:54

2016-01-14 00:52:09

2016-01-14 11:09:30
Can't believe device and kennyS(lmao) will be ranked higher than Happy.
Also, what is up with all the braindead people here calling him a baiter. Its a tactic called bait n switch... its not like he is doing that in mm.
2016-01-14 12:27:42
the choker device is gonna be higher than happy, this ranking is funny lmao
2016-01-14 20:36:32
one of the most complete player, 3 times mvp , many tournament won, top 8.. it s a joke, how come the top 2 team of 2015 won't have any player in the top 5; or kenny but i wonder why.. happy had more impact even with the awp in envy

2016-01-14 18:50:28
hahaahahah keep crying
2016-01-14 19:30:08
He should be higher, Happy isn't given the respect he deserves.. Much like Flusha.
2016-01-14 20:15:01
It's obvious he should be higher. The one that made the ranking does not realize Happy's impact is lower because of its role in the team, for which it is normal to have a lower K/D. Players with a lower rate of KD kill less often, thus their frag means more for the team, so it gives a greater impact. At the level and the role of Happy, it is totally predictable, he has less impact on winning the round, but itshould not be relevant in terms of his assessment in this ranking. The author would have to demonstrate that his frags have less value, as well as evaluate it simply through the prism of his role in the team and team's response for his style and efficiency - it's just a habit of his team-mates that he has a lot of kills in every match. The problem therefore is not Happy, but team's relation to his effectiveness. What also is not any disadvantage, because Happy is still incredibly effective. Less impact on winning rounds, in this specific case, it's a proof that he's exceptionally consistent. In my opinion the author misunderstood ranking statistics.
