Top 20 players of 2015: KRIMZ (7)
Time: 2016-01-14 20:47
Game: Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

Next up on our Top 20 players of 2015 list is fnatic's third-best player, Freddy "KRIMZ" Johansson, who earned the seventh place due to his incredible consistency in contributing to his team's success, clutch play, and performances at big events.

Freddy "KRIMZ" Johansson is one of the newest players in the top-tier scene, having only emerged in CS:GO after playing Counter-Strike 1.6 casually.

His first successful team was the LGB squad created by Mikail "Maikelele" Bill in 2013, also featuring two of his current teammates, Olof "olofmeister" Kajbjer and Dennis "dennis" Edman.

After slowly making his way to international success, placing 5th-8th at the first major, KRIMZ would go on to finish in the top four of EMS One Katowice before he broke out in the last three quarters of 2014 with fnatic, which earned him a 9th place in our 2014 ranking.

After a very successful end of 2014, fnatic's first event in 2015 at MLG X-Games Aspen didn't turn out quite as they had hoped for. No thanks to KRIMZ did they place fourth after losses to LDLC in the group stage, NiP in the semi-finals, and dignitas in the third-place decider. The Swedish support carried fnatic throughout the entire tournament, especially on the five maps they played in playoffs, in each of which he was the best player within the team. Against dignitas he even provided a 1.32 rating in an 0-2 loss (7-16 de_nuke, 17-19 de_mirage), but he was the only one to have turned up. Despite fnatic's result there, KRIMZ was the second-highest rated player of the event.

He wasn't quite as alone at Inferno Online Pantamera Challenge, the first of fnatic's ten titles in 2015. The event as a whole was somewhat average for KRIMZ, but it was still a solid showing from him—on nine out of ten maps he had a rating of above 0.85 despite very close results on most of them.

KRIMZ's head was held high at ESL One Katowice as well. He didn't turn up with a particularly special performance in Poland (3rd best in fnatic with a 1.11 rating), however he was still a stable player for fnatic, and the best player of the Virtus.pro semi-final (54-40, 1.32 rating). The major was also a showcase of his support capabilities. At the event he had the second highest percentage of support rounds (23.1%), as well as third highest survived, kill or assist percentage (71.4%), making him instrumental in fnatic's victory.

In Katowice KRIMZ set a standard for his big event performances

The next couple of events proved to be a contrast for KRIMZ, while for fnatic as a whole they meant a couple of silver medals. At ESEA Invite Season 18 Global Finals he was fnatic's best, and one of the best players of the entire event. He placed in the top five of 13 leaderboards, most notably first in survived, kill or assist percentage (75.0%), second in rating (1.21), and first in 1+ kill rounds (54.2%).

At CCS Kick-off Season Finals, however, he turned in his first below-1.00 rating performance (0.98, fourth in fnatic), most of which could be accounted to his poor overall record in the two lost series against TSM. Once again though he was rated highest in support rounds with 24.7%, second highest in surived, kill or assist percentage with 71.1%, and interestingly had the most success in opening duels (67.4%).

Rating-wise KRIMZ's best event came right afterwards, FACEIT Stage 1 Finals, thanks to an absolutely monstrous group stage record: 49-14 (2.26 rating) against Liquid (POV video from de_mirage, where he had 28-8), and 49-24 (1.59 rating) against NiP. A closer look however reveals that his struggles against TSM didn't end in Romania, as in London his 0.72 rating in a close 0-2 series was partially the reason fnatic's journey came to an end in the semi-finals.

His truly best event, one he also deserved an MVP title for, was DreamHack Open Tours in May. On six out of eight maps he played in France he recorded a rating of above 1.15, which includes fnatic's 7-16 loss on map one of the grand final. A glance upon leaderboards of the event shows his complete dominance: 1.28 rating (1st), 0.92 kills + assists per round (1st), 0.52 deaths per round (1st), 57.0% 1+ kill rounds (1st), 75.1% survived, kill or assist (1st), 75.0% success in opening duels (1st). The whole team played very well in Tours, but KRIMZ was on a level above the rest.

fnatic travelled back to the United Kingdom on the next weekend, this time for Gfinity Spring Masters 2. fnatic's road in London was bumpy, as was KRIMZ's group stage. In the two surprising best-of-two ties, one opposing Vox Eminor and one against Liquid, he played significantly below average. On the other hand, Natus Vincere were a walk in the park for him (54:30, 1.40 rating), and he played very well against NiP in another tie as well, the best out of his team, in fact. He was back to his stable self in time for playoffs, and proved to be highly valuable for his team in the semi-final and grand final wins.

KRIMZ's POV from fnatic's 16-10 de_overpass win against Natus Vincere in the group stage (30-13 score, 1.68 rating)

The same couldn't be said for Fragbite Masters Season 4 Finals, as it was KRIMZ's first of only two truly bad showings. Interestingly it was an event where fnatic met TSM twice, and in both series KRIMZ played poorly in the losses, yet again.

He didn't seem to show any weaknesses to any other team, at least not consistently, as he bounced back at a TSM-less DreamHack Open Summer in style (1.31 rating). KRIMZ found himself at the top of numerous charts, although the event's MVP was snatched by his teammate olofmeister.

When the calendar turned to July, KRIMZ turned with it. Both ESL ESEA Pro League Season 1 Finals and FACEIT Stage 2 Finals that month were somewhat unsatisfying from the Swede, especially the Spanish event. At both he found himself below a 1.00 rating, albeit slightly (0.98 and 0.97, respectively).

By then ESL One Cologne was around the corner, and fortunately for fnatic, KRIMZ was able to come back to form in time. He only recorded one map significantly below 1.00 rating (0.71 in a 6-16 loss to Virtus.pro in semi-finals) during the entire event, and he was pivotal on map two of the semi-final, as well as in the whole grand final. That time it was Robin "flusha" Rönnquist to pick up the MVP, but KRIMZ was a cornerstone to fnatic reaching their second major title in 2015.

KRiMZ's 1-on-3 allowed fnatic to come back on Dust2 in the grand final

Along with fnatic's disappointment with a 3rd-4th finish at ESL ESEA Dubai Invitational down went KRIMZ, who found himself in truly bad form for the second time in 2015 in the United Arab Emirates. The one good match he played was a group decider against Titan, but the remainder was very uncharacteristic for the Swede, who couldn't make much of an impact at the event.

That kind of form didn't last long at all, his road at Gfinity Champion of Champions was somewhat rocky, but by PGL Season 1 Finals he returned to form again, despite the team's result there. A third place finish (out of four, only beating Liquid) was no stop sign to KRIMZ, who finally broke his own TSM curse (1.12 rating in a 0-2 loss), and was fnatic's best player in all three series.

While fnatic continued to go on a decline at DreamHack Open Cluj-Napoca, KRIMZ stood as a rock alongside flusha at the third major. The only sub-1.00 rating came from a 2-16 loss on the last map of the EnVyUs quarter-final, and the Swede returned home with a constellation prize of a 1.14 rating at a major.

The $250,000 events were a showcase of KRIMZ's consistency

When fnatic replaced Markus "pronax" Wallsten with KRIMZ's former teammate dennis, the support player was the team's second best at FACEIT Stage 3 Finals, and one of the best of the event. He even stepped up to olofmeister's challenge at Fragbite Masters Season 5 Finals afterwards, and earned his second MVP title there. At both events he showed up at the top of various leaderboards (FACEIT leaders, Fragbite leaders), proving his immense worth for fnatic in two of their three golden runs towards the end of 2015.

He and the whole team—with the exception of olofmeister—dropped off at the last event of the year, ESL ESEA Pro League Season 2 Finals. KRIMZ didn't play badly at the event (1.01 rating), but his last performance of 2015 wasn't anywhere near his level at the two events beforehand.

Why is he the 7th best player of 2015?

One of the factors that speak to KRIMZ's worth in 2015 is his incredible consistency—he rarely had a bad map: 80.7% of the 181 maps he played were rated above 0.85, and 64.6% above 1.00.

In every single tournament he attended, KRIMZ contributed in an above average number of rounds. Overall that accounts to 69.7% of rounds; by far the most of all players. He also holds number one in deaths per round with 0.61, making him the hardest to kill in 2015.

It's fair to say his passive playstyle has been paying off, as he holds the highest amount of clutches won (79, with 56 of them being 1-on-1's), which makes his ability to survive even more valuable.

What placed him above some of the previous players was his performance at majors (1.14, 5th) and the seven $250,000 events overall, five of which fnatic managed to win. His best $250,000 event was ESL One Cologne, where in the playoffs he played an instrumental role in fnatic's victory, as previously mentioned.

MVPs from DreamHack Tours and Fragbite Masters Season 5 Finals surely didn't hurt, although it was his lack of stardom at the biggest events and in big matches that cost him a higher place in the ranking; while he was nearly always a big factor in fnatic's success, he was rarely the most impactful player in their deep runs.

Flusha with one good tournament? Pls
2016-01-14 23:35:52
'1 good tournament' = performing best at the biggest events, all majors/esl esea events, stfu pls.
2016-01-15 09:50:09
flusha with only one good tournament.

Highest rating of all at majors, all of them done with a 1.1+ rating. 1.08 rating on LAN in general with six tournaments above 1.2 in rating.

But yeah, just that one good tournament...
2016-01-15 19:00:45
woooow 3 tournaments! When krimz played 20 tournaments with better rating. Best clutched of 2015 and most stable player of this year. So ofc flusha best player of this year cuz he played good 3 majors. Stupid logic.
2016-01-15 19:34:43
Those three tournaments matter more than the rest.

I didn't say flusha would be the best player of 2015 - that is gonna be olofmeister, but flusha has been more important than KRiMZ was.

The logic is that those that played the best when winning, is also the ones being rated the highest.

although it was his lack of stardom at the biggest events and in big matches that cost him a higher place in the ranking; while he was nearly always a big factor in fnatic's success, he was rarely the most impactful player in their deep runs.
2016-01-15 19:39:09
why this mournaments matter more? 250K? nothing especial.
2016-01-15 20:11:15
All the best teams, all the best players, the highest prizes, the biggest stages, the most preparation done, because everyone wanna be at their best.

You need more reasons? Don't you understand what ambition and competition is?
2016-01-15 20:51:48
hhhhm Fragbite. Any bad team? ESL ESEA? Faceit? SL?
2016-01-15 21:34:28
Fragbite didn't have 250.000, it is also a four team tournament, which means all the other good teams couldn't be there.

ESL ESEA had the prize pool, but not the best teams.

FaceIt did not have the prize pool.

And SL had neither teams nor the prize pool.

But forget it, you're too stupid for me to be wasting my time on explaining you everything.
2016-01-15 21:43:59
That's why I'll explain nothing to you ;)

Not necessarily. Maybe as a straight up awper but not as an overall player.

Device higher than flusha, snax and kenny, but nvm, im from Denmark. Just looking at stats, and the fact that Device carried the second most earning org. in 2015. And yes som of the envy boys earned more, but not in same org or team.
2016-01-14 23:57:45
device will not be higher than flusha

he should be higher than kennyS and snax tho
2016-01-15 01:37:04
GuardiaN is even better overall player than kennys
2016-01-14 21:25:14
guardian better rifler
guardian better pistoler
guardian better at everything
2016-01-14 21:34:38
The game isn't just about aim. Kenny works well with his team more than Guardian, and Guardian tilts a lot. And you need to remember what kenny was like pre-awp nerf, he was fucking insane.

How do you know Kenny works well with his team more than Guardian?
Kenny tilts a lot too, your point is invalid
2016-01-14 23:39:05
It's as if you are trolling.... KennyS is known for how a bad round impcacts his entire game, he is known for his tilting.... Are you trolling?
2016-01-14 23:42:48


If anything, kennyS on a good day is better than GuardiaN at awping and awping only. GuardiaN is by far the most complete AWP player with sick rifling skills as well.....
2016-01-14 23:41:23
Stupid? Guardian is a 10 times better Rifler than kenny
2016-01-15 01:01:47
probably flusha and olof 2nd
2016-01-14 20:50:05
Why would kenny be #1? Are you drunk?
2016-01-14 20:59:19

did you forget the time before the update?

kenny did 30-40 bombs almost every match
2016-01-14 20:52:12
yeah, in the full 2 months of the year before the nerf LOL.
2016-01-14 21:02:48
and in the rest of the year he played really bad sure

why do you guys care so much about a shitty hltv ranking?
2016-01-14 21:04:24
he did. however he had some decent months at the very end of the year.
2016-01-14 21:06:05
why do you guys care so much about a shitty hltv ranking?

2016-01-14 21:06:53
because its significant
2016-01-14 23:29:08
why because an admin from a forum said it?

even the fifa football world ranking is a joke
2016-01-14 23:37:14
:D thats different. its the only rating we have on the biggest site everyone checks out. they put a lot of effort in it, so its kinda meaningful i would say.
2016-01-14 23:38:57
yeah its different hltv is just a forum
and the fifa world ranking is official
2016-01-14 23:39:57
football is the biggest sport in the world, its corrupt, has a lot more money and people involved etc. hltv might just be a forum, but for cs its like the fifa world rankings, it is significant. some people cry about it, some think it is reasonable. everyone can have their own opinion , but i can understand why the ranking is a big deal for the scene
2016-01-14 23:44:43
Did you forget that he is trash since the update and got only 3 kills in major finals map? lol
2016-01-14 22:09:13
why do you guys care so much about a shitty hltv ranking?

2016-01-14 22:10:07

2016-01-14 22:46:21
no, goldfish memory hltv user spotted
2016-01-14 21:01:40
absolutely not, it's the opposite. kennys won nothing and did nothing with titan for half the year and did terribly with them after the awp nerf. then he did well for like 3 months at the end of the year. he admitted the major slump he was in for most of the year himself, so you're the goldfish user.
2016-01-14 21:03:39
lmfao, im pretty sure being the best player in the world for 25% of a year at least should give you a spot in the top 5 list, are you autistic?
2016-01-14 21:06:03
25%!? it was january and february at like 2 tournaments or something that he played. actually i take janaury back because he was only at 1 lan then, asus rog, and maikelele was better than him there. that's it, 1 month! in march he bombed out of katowice losing 16-4 to fucking penta when it mattered and his opponents were also on their A game. jesus.

easily a top5 player for me.
2016-01-14 20:49:21
best support in the game, followed not by far by nbk and xyp9x, but yap, krimz delivering crazy stuff here and there almost always, although most people don't give the credit he deserves
2016-01-14 21:12:04
he's also one of the best anchors in the world, almost always gets 1 or 2 frags when holding a site alone.
2016-01-14 21:17:42
That rank is a completely bullshit.
Happy and Krimz played better than KennyS and Snax

look at both their stats in majors, not even close... krimz should be 5-6 i dunno why snax is ranked better

2016-01-14 20:54:06
They are not the only 4 stats they get rated on, it is just showing you his best stats. He could be #50 for entry frags and #25 for overall k/d (not saying he is just an example) they just aren't shown.
2016-01-14 21:34:49
2016-01-14 20:54:08

its such a bullshit to put kennyS and snax over krimz for me :) maybe kennys was a god in Titan but without any titles its nothing
2016-01-14 20:58:22
unexpected Krimz is more like top5
2016-01-14 20:58:30
How the fuck KRIMZ is lower than overrated device? It's hilarious
2016-01-14 20:59:24

2nd/3rd/4th Flusha/Guardian/KennyS

but who will be in 5th and 6th position?
- Snax?

device will be higher than snax and flusha imo
2016-01-15 17:44:58
kennyS over KRiMZ. Biggest joke of the year.

KennyS played with Titan for half the year doing nothing and bombed out of the first major, nearly sabotaged the second for his team and won the third.

Happy > KRiMz & kennyS in terms of stats & performance this year so idk why he's below them.
Also KRiMz > kennyS

So far I did agree with the ranking but not since Happy's only number 8. Sorry but it's bullshit :<

I do agree though that Snax, device, olof, flusha & guardian should be the top5
2016-01-14 21:01:11
Because the frags of happy, more than any other player this year in the entire scene, don't result in round wins. He has the most pointless frags of anyone because he's just getting exit frags. It's the same every single fucking game. Please actually watch the game and not just look at HLTV rating. The article about Happy supports what I said with stats so fuck off.
2016-01-14 21:05:12

Stick that Happy up your ass,he can not play cs.
2016-01-15 05:47:14

my prediction was happy 7 krimz 8 :D

well deserved, what a year he had. lets see how many more i predict right

my initial prediction before the top20 was announced was





4 players wrong (aizy fer chrij seized -> skadoodle neo cajunb jw), off by off by 1.6 positions per player per average (mostly because hltv massively underrated the entry fraggers - dupreeh flamie apex) so far when excluding the 4 players missed and the 6 unannounced (will be off by 1 exactly if i predict the top6 correctly).
2016-01-14 21:05:00
should be in the top5 NO QUESTION
2016-01-14 21:07:12
fnatic without krimz would be so unstable, relying heavily on miracle plays from flusha and JW, or on olof carrying.
Impactful players win rounds and maybe games, reliable players win championships.
2016-01-14 22:07:06

obv he is. he is the glue that makes fnatic capable to defeat teams like nV, tsm or luminosity
2016-01-14 21:13:29
Krimz is a team player, Happy makes the team play for him. See the difference?
2016-01-14 21:45:58
so pasha in top 6, wonderful
2016-01-14 21:10:42
what has pasha done that places him in the top 6?
2016-01-14 21:46:54
pasha? he is legend, he has done muscles and streams, he also won few titles in 2015, definitely deserved place in top6
2016-01-14 22:01:16
he wont be. but dont worry m8 hes the best streamer ever.

2016-01-14 22:13:05
hahaha, better than your country.
2016-01-14 23:40:57
Deserved, imo
Shouldn't Pronax also be in this list instead of JW? I admit I am new to csgo , so I might be talking shit. Howevet he was the IGL for the best team of this year, while also having not so bad stats.
I am not saying he is top 10, I just think it's strange that JW (and some others) are on this list and he is not.

2016-01-14 21:59:54
Pronax is a tactician. This is about the individual stats. He always gets the bottom frag in short he gets carried by his teammates. He is 1 of the best in game leader but not individuality in terms of kills. In other hand JW who never misses top 20 is really a good player. In 2015 he is not the JW that plyers used to know that's why other people saying why. Because the expectation is too high for him. I am an old cs player and all in top 20 deserved it.
2016-01-15 05:23:09

2016-01-15 01:01:35
Krimz is a CS-beast. Definitely well deserved. In fact, he deserves to be top 5. He's the most consistent and trustworthy player out there, never runs around for frags or tries to set himself up for flashy plays. The best damn site-anchor in the game.
2016-01-14 22:05:44
You could argue that he's infact the most important player in fnatic (not the best skill wise)
2016-01-14 22:44:07
Probably both.

2016-01-14 22:13:37
"IN 2015" ofc. Stats don't lie. What did Happy achieved in 2015? Gets carried by his teammates in major? lol. Don't base it in the game that happened few hours ago, this is in 2015.
2016-01-14 22:15:59
"Stats don't lie" What a complete retard, have you actually look at their ratings?? 1.15 -> 1.10 with Happy being more consistent over the year so yea stats don't lie: Happy > Krimz
2016-01-14 22:43:03
I said stats not rating. Both are different. IDIOT! lol

are u stupid or what ?
2016-01-14 22:27:30
1vs1 Clutch maybe. Because enemies 11hp left (Probably olof, JW and Flusha wounded them) Krimz still left 100 HP Because Krimz is backup player. reputation comes from that easy shots and easy positions.

snax and device above guardian xDD

it's either #2flusha #3guardian or vice versa
2016-01-15 16:58:52
Sigh, there is a high possibility that it happens.

Flusha is secon for sure and together with Snax and Device, the three performed better at the biggest events than Guardian.
