Top 20 players of 2015: flusha (5)
Time: 2016-01-16 18:07
Game: Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

As we enter the last five of our Top 20 players of 2015 powered by EGB.com, it's time for Robin "flusha" Rönnquist, who always turned up the heat for big events, majors especially.

Similarly to most of his fnatic teammates, except for Dennis "dennis" Edman, Robin "flusha" Rönnquist has never gained much notoriety until CS:GO was released. Throughout the first year of CS:GO he was putting together what would later on become a lineup of fnatic, who went on to take the first major title at DreamHack Winter 2013.

After an unsatisfying first half of the year 2014 he joined up with current teammates Freddy "KRIMZ" Johansson and Olof "olofmeister" Kajbjer, and worked his way up to becoming one of the very best players in the game. He deserved a place in both player rankings we have completed so far in CS:GO, as he was the 13th-best player of 2013, and second-best of 2014.

Rönnquist's start in 2015 correlated with fnatic's. After finishing 2014 on a very high note, MLG X-Games Aspen was a disappointment from the team, especially the Swede, whose first tournament in 2015 was in the red zone (0.83 rating, the lowest in fnatic by a big margin) and ended up being his lowest point all year.

The next tournament, Inferno Online Pantamera Challenge, turned out much better for both him and the team. Rönnquist stepped back into positives on home turf, and while he wasn't the carry we've known him to be in 2014, he still had solid showings in both playoffs series (against EnVyUs and Titan), helping fnatic bring home the first significant title of the year.

He stepped up a bit more in time for the first major of the year, ESL One Katowice. After fnatic advanced from the group with a couple of one-sided games (16-3 against Vox Eminor, 16-7 against Natus Vincere), Rönnquist helped destroy PENTA on one of the quarter-final maps. His best map at the event came from the Virtus.pro semi-final, as he stepped into the spotlight when it mattered—in a 19-17 victory on de_cbble (27-17, 1.32 rating). Overall he was fnatic's second-best player against the Poles as well as versus NiP in the final, where he was the swing vote on one of the maps as well (1.17 rating in a 16-14 de_dust2 win).

flusha was the best-rated player at majors in 2015, starting with a strong Katowice showing

After another solid showing at ESEA Invite Season 18 Global Finals (1.08 rating, third highest in fnatic), he had three above-1.20 rating performances in a row, the most important of which was CCS Kick-off Season Finals. Not only was he the best from his team, he was one of the best overall, thanks to six out of nine maps above 1.25 rating. In Bucharest Rönnquist topped rating (1.21), kills+assists per round (0.87), kills per round (0.81) and number of clutches won (7).

The other two events, FACEIT Stage 1 Finals and DreamHack Open Tours, weren't as dominant from the Swede. In both cases Johansson was the star of the team, although Rönnquist's sparks of his Bucharest form burst out in both semi-finals: against TSM in London (1.15 rating from two close lost maps), and against HellRaisers in France (29-13, 2.04 on de_dust2).

fnatic attended another event in London the following weekend, Gfinity Spring Masters 2. Rönnquist was the reason why fnatic even survived a Vox Eminor surprise with a tie (1.23 rating from two 29-round maps), but his main contribution came in the playoffs. He wasn't fnatic's best player in either of the series, but he brought a high level of play in both of them.

After a couple of slightly above-average performances at Fragbite Masters Season 4 Finals and DreamHack Open Summer, the second $250,000 event was around the corner. Rönnquist's group stage record at ESL ESEA Pro League Season 1 finals wasn't the greatest, but he turned up the heat for playoffs. He helped defeat Virtus.pro in the semi-finals with a 1.22 rating (highest in the series), and he was the best-rated player of the best-of-five grand final against Cloud9 as well. He also recorded one of his best maps in a close encounter in the final, turning in a 1.52 rating in a 16-14 victory on de_overpass (POV video).

flusha's memorable action against NiP at DreamHack Summer

FACEIT Stage 2 Finals at DreamHack Valencia was the second event where Rönnquist dropped into the red zone (0.91). While the lost matches at that event were especially underwhelming from him, he was one of the best players of the semi-final opposing NiP with a 1.18 rating in two 16-14 victories, on de_train and de_mirage.

The Spanish event as a whole was a worrying sign for Rönnquist, seeing as ESL One Cologne was fnatic's next event. After a month fnatic had to prepare though, he flipped a switch. As usual, Rönnquist turned up for the major, and his level there was spectacular. After destroying the group stage with two 16-2 blowouts, he certainly didn't stop against Luminosity in quarter-finals. Virtus.pro got a taste of their own medicine afterwards, as this time it was Rönnquist holding the plow (68-48, 1.27 rating). Finally, his 51-33 score in the grand final against EnVyUs put him on the highest of pedestals; the MVP of a major, and a dominant one at that.

He turned up with an above-1.00 rating on all nine maps, eight of which were even above 1.15. Leaderboards of the event are filled with flusha at the very top: Among other categories, he was ranked first in rating (1.38), kills per round (0.91), 1+ kill rounds (58.4%), assists per round (0.21), and in survived, kill or assist percentage (77.6%). He was also one of the hardest to kill in Cologne, holding 0.53 deaths per round (second best at the event). If anything could compete with Kajbjer's force at ESL One Katowice, it is Rönnquist's dominance at the second major.

flusha's POV from de_dust2 of the EnVyUs grand final (28-18, 1.31 rating in a 19-15 victory)

He also proved his worth at another $250,000 event, the fourth of the year, ESL ESEA Dubai Invitational. A 1.22 rating there was the team's highest, although it was also one of the six events where fnatic placed outside of the grand final. Rönnquist played well above average up until two blowouts in the Virtus.pro semi-final, especially in an overtime loss against TSM (29-17, 1.30 rating) in the group stage, and in a close encounter with Titan in the group decider (28-18, 1.42).

His capabilities in close matches were showcased at Gfinity Champion of Champions as well, specifically on two maps against NiP (32-17, 1.62 on a 16-13 de_mirage, POV; 35-24, 1.36 on a 17-19 de_inferno), and one in the EnVyUs grand final (26-14, 1.47 on a 16-12 de_train). It wasn't enough to add another trophy to fnatic's cabinet, but it was a good consolation prize for the Swede who recorded a 1.15 rating, the second highest at the event.

His form at the dawn of another major dropped off once again. PGL Season 1 Finals was one of the few cases in which the Swede didn't have much of an impact, and it also showed in fnatic's end result—a third place out of four teams.

Rönnquist didn't let that affect the major though, as he was—barring Johansson—the only one to turn up at DreamHack Open Cluj-Napoca in good form overall. He destroyed EnVyUs on map one of their quarter-final after a great group stage, but he dropped off significantly on map two and three in fnatic's only exit outside of the top four in 2015.

flusha turned in another good major performance in Cluj

A big change in fnatic's structure was ahead. Markus "pronax" Wallsten's exit from the team meant Rönnquist would start calling full-time, not just as a test run, and it showed. Not at the first event with Edman, FACEIT Stage 3 Finals (one of the seven $250,000 events), as he was still fnatic's third-best player there, but at both events at the end of the year.

Fragbite Masters Season 5 Finals was measly from him—a 0.88 rating was caused by his extreme inconsistency. In somewhat comfortable wins he had solid showings, but he couldn't make an impact when it mattered. He recorded a below-0.40 rating on one of the maps of all fnatic's three-map series.

The last $250,000 event of the year was the only one out of seven where he didn't have a rating of at least 1.10. His performance at ESL ESEA Pro League Season 2 Finals wasn't particularly bad, but it was still slightly below average (0.97), and the inconsistency was still there, too. A very good score on de_dust2 of the grand final with Natus Vincere (26-18 in a 16-14 win) was completely negated by a measly one on de_inferno (13-24 in a 16-14 win), while the remainder was average within fnatic. His team still finished the year with three titles in a row despite his significant drop in form, arguably because of his leadership duties.

Why is he the 5th best player of 2015?

Despite a few underwhelming events by Rönnquist, he boasts some of the most impressive statistics which had a large impact on his high placing in the ranking.

The Swede was one of the best clutchers of the year, having won 67 clutch rounds (fourth most), nearly half of which were at least 1-on-2's. Also, when he got at least one kill, his team won in 70.6% of cases (fourth most).

He holds first place in a largely impactful statistic, rating at majors: a superb 1.22. In all seven $250,000 events combined he is the second best-rated player with a 1.13 rating. His monstrous level of play at ESL One Cologne (1.38 rating) was the best tournament performance of the year, with Kajbjer's at ESL One Katowice trailing in second place.

What also played a part in his placing was his rating in grand finals (1.07, seventh highest), which, combined with the aforementioned, is why he is in the top five despite not being as consistent as others in the top eight.

On the other hand, apart from Cologne he was never the star in his team's biggest title wins, although he came very close at ESL ESEA Pro League Season 1 Finals thanks to his playoffs performance. What also cost him a higher place in the ranking is that he wasn't the main impact player in his team, but was more of a stable contributor.

What do you make of Rönnquist's 2015? Where would you have rated him? Let us know your opinion in the comment section below.

I think hes totally deserve to top 3. But meh...

I think he would have been if people like Snax, Guardian and Olof weren't having more impact. Olof can one man army a team, Guardian literally carries all over Na'vi on his shoulders and Snax is a genius and one of the best clutch players in the game. If Device is 4th though that'll be annoying. I feel like Flusha out performed Device in every aspect.
2016-01-17 04:33:36
Olof isnt even close to being a one man army... Flusha is literally the best player in the world right now.
2016-01-17 09:08:35
Right now he isn't even close. Th eIGL responsibilities have taken away from his fragging. Are you even watching his games?
2016-01-17 11:16:15
Noooo I hate fnatic.
2016-01-17 12:02:46
i know what you mean about snax being a clutch player, but tbh he hasn't shined so much last year. even according to this article here snax is nowhere to be seen on the "most clutch player"-list.

2016-01-17 11:41:56
Well first of all if we're talking about the teams, TSM has literally controlled fnatic the most.
Player-wise device is the top carrier for TSM while fnatic has olof for example.
What I'm trying to say is that it's more "spread out" on fnatic while device is more on his own, that just takes much more than what flusha's doing, imagine if he didn't have olof and JW.
2016-01-17 16:50:04
I agree, top 3.
2016-01-17 10:18:15
2016-01-16 18:08:01

2016-01-16 18:08:02
It's gonna be :

1- Olof
2- Device
3- GuardiaN
4- Snax


1- Olof
2- Guardian
3- Flusha
4- Device
5- Snax
2016-01-16 20:56:03
im telling you, snax top3 :S
2016-01-16 21:41:49
without snax vp is literally nothing, snax is a really good player
2016-01-17 02:07:00
Without anyone of them they would be nothing, they are a team, not individual talents.

2016-01-17 02:36:46
but i still think snax is one of the best players in the team and in CS right now
2016-01-17 06:12:01
nice b8
2016-01-17 11:37:18
Tbh GuardiaN proves that it's possible to be a alone.
2016-01-17 16:55:48

2016-01-16 18:08:42
Device most overrated player of 2015, biggest choker of all time will be above Flusha? The GOD OF MAJORS?

Even though I hate flusha I find this ranking the biggest bullshit ever lol
2016-01-16 18:09:51
what if device wont be in this ranking? :D i hope so, he doesnt deserve that
2016-01-16 18:15:35
he surely will be there, he is top20 player... I was expecting him to be somewhere close to #10
not top1-4 tho lmao
2016-01-16 18:16:28
close to 10? are you retarded or just retarded
2016-01-16 18:35:16
IMO, he was like Top 15-20 when he was still only good but ''chokey'', then he didnt choke for 2-3 months, instantly rated top 1 player. so a top 7 would be fair here
2016-01-16 18:52:41
Imo It Should be:
1. Olof (most obvious 1st place ever)
2. Guardian
3. Flusha/Happy
4. Flusha/happy
5. Krimz
6. KennyS
7. Snax/Device
8. Snax/Device

The rest dont matter lel
2016-01-16 18:55:05
kennyS not as good as snax. happy not even close to flusha. guardian has no achievements so he shouldn't be above flusha. but yeah, guardian individually is very good
2016-01-16 19:34:18
KennyS is very good player and he was carrying Titan so hard and he is doing very well in NV.
Happy is obviously best EnVy player so he deserves top3
2016-01-16 19:40:41
Happy had the most useless kills in top 20. flusha carried fnatic in every important game.

kennyS even thou carried before awp nerf, he was bot after and now he is decent at most.
2016-01-16 19:44:38
He gets shittons of entry frags and he wins a lot of important clutches lol

Come on, don't say kennyS is decent awper, we both know its not true ^^

I am not his fanboy btw. Imo guardian is like 10x better, but guardian is just waaaaaaaaaaay above the rest
2016-01-16 19:54:37
-I put happy high in my list, but HLTV stats said that his kills are the less important in the top 20, not me. he is very good player but not on flusha's level. I hated flusha before as i thought he is cheating, but cheating or not (90% not) he is a god at this game, more clutches than happy, moire achievements, better stats.

-never like kennyS,before update he was best awper, now he's not, simple as that... he has his moments, but when he doesn't he sucks dick like a pornstar. too inconsistent, lost the cologne final single handedly
2016-01-16 20:02:12
ye he choked the shit out of cologne final :DD

and flusha is "just" beast on majors, he sucks on other events
2016-01-16 20:08:02
i don't know what you think sucks means, but he clearly doesn't suck man... 1st or second best in fnatic by far. even when igl he is still a beast
2016-01-16 20:09:07
Check his LAN rating and compare it to his major rating.

Also at the beginning of the year he was bt far worst fnatic player lol
2016-01-16 20:17:38
You are definitely a very special human being. Device can only win non-important games so he suck but when a player actually wins major games it's "just" major games so he suck. I mean which player doesn't actually suck then? :D Maybe you should just be #1 on this list.
2016-01-18 20:15:56
He always sucks on important games and does insanely well vs teams like CLG or Renegades LOL

Learn to read.
2016-01-18 20:17:36
I didn't read anything wrong, that's pretty much what I just said :)
2016-01-18 20:25:15
KennyS carried Titan HARD, only reason he fell off was because of the change to the awp so he had to adjust which takes time.
Happy deserves way better, but yeah maybe not as much as flusha but "not even close" is abit too much.
GuardiaN no achievements? Finalist at a major as a f***ing one-man-army is quite an achievement to me, and yes he is VERY good individually, remember this is an individually list. If it was a team-achievement based list neither dupreeh or device would even be there, TSM didn't win shit.
2016-01-17 17:12:14
it is a rating + achievements list... get your facts straight. ofc dupreeh and device must've been here, they won more than na'vi
2016-01-17 17:13:47
That is very correct, but not _TEAM_ achievement list. But the player individually, learn to read.
2016-01-17 17:26:01
ofc it's team achievements also, you don't have any individual achievements apart from mvp of tournament which you can't get without getting to the final
2016-01-18 15:02:54
device is be the 2 one
2016-01-16 20:02:50
2016-01-16 20:13:11
hes like 20-25
2016-01-17 00:41:22
You have to understand that fnatic's skill is spread out on players like olof, jw and flusha while device is on his own, that says waaay more.
Flusha is not even fnatics carrier.
2016-01-17 16:58:52
I haven't seen device carrying TSM/TQM either, he was just getting crazy KDA on bad teams but whenever It was comming to play vs good teams like fnatic/nv/vp he just choked like shit lol

Also what you mean that device is alone?
Xyp9x is very good support
Kerrigan has his days and cajunb is good player

Saying that device is all alone because he has good KDA is bullshit.

But nt fanboy
2016-01-17 17:01:55
Nice arguments you got there my friend. "I havn't seen device carrying" Oh shit my bad, then it never happened. It's correct that they choked alot in a period which is over and has been for a long time but unfortunately they're known as the chokers now I guess instead of the skill they consume. When that's said TSM won more against fnatic AND vp all-time than opposite, so better have your facts straight next time trying to be smart :)
Device > Dupreeh
Xyp9x, Karrigan and Cajunb is not even top20 players while fnatic has 4. They're definitely good ofcourse, but not top players as fnatics players.
2016-01-17 17:20:28
Sorry but the fact that they won several online games vs VP/Fnatic doesnt really make them the better team xDDD
Also even if they won some on LANs It was only on small, non important tournemants lel
Device always chokes on important matches and he is the reason why TQM will never win a major because they put so much on him but he never plays well when he has to ^^
Stop fanboying him, he will be top3 only because he has incredible rating on not important matches lel
I know he is very good player but just can't take preassrure on big matches, thats all.
2016-01-17 17:23:45
I'm definitely not fanboying device, the only reason I'm "<3 TSM" is because I'm mod at karrigans twitch channel lol, has nothing to do with device. I'm simply telling you facts because you believe in things that aren't true but those beliefs are obviously there to stay :)
So sure let's say that device always chokes and only reason they were #1 in the world is because of they're awesome rating and non-important wins "lel"
2016-01-17 17:30:54
They were #1 but They have never win a Major or never even been close to do reach It (final) so people calling them #1 were just a bunch of overhyper fanboys.
2016-01-17 17:33:10
Lol, don't even know what to answer to such a dumb comment. If a semi-final ain't close to a final, then I don't know what is.
And the "people" calling them #1 is HLTVs own list which I guess comes closest to an official list instead of overhyped fanboys.
2016-01-17 17:37:14
Its dannish site so what you expected? xDD
You got 1st good team in csgo so the hype was real, but sadly TSM was never able to play as good as they were hyped to :P
2016-01-17 17:40:43
So now HLTV are the fanboys? Are you scraping the bottom soon with all the excuses?
And I'm not sure about what you mean with we got first good team?
2016-01-17 17:44:31
First team that was able to reach some finals and be competetive at csgo? Don't say Dignitas because we all know they were shit back in 2014 and they are still bad now :P

And I am not making excuses, I am just showing my POV about all that TSM/TQM hype as a person not from biased Denmark
2016-01-17 17:46:27
What does that have to do with anything? You only have VP aswell?
Yeah Dignitas has always been shit :P
Well the fact that you believe TSM was #1 just because HLTV is a danish site is just ABIT lame isn't it? :D
I'm pretty sure your opinion or POV isn't better than HLTVs statistics, but ofcourse you can believe in anything you want for no matter how long you want, it wont change the fact(s) :P
2016-01-17 18:00:01
tsm was always shit, they can't even beat the nip that was destroyed by na'vi... if you can't reach a major final, you have no top 3 player, that's for sure
2016-01-18 15:10:10
Lol the fact that you take ONE example proves that you're either dumb or acting dumb :)
TSM won the majority of the games that TSM and NIP played against eachother. NIP was only worth to mention when CSGO came out because they adjusted to the game faster than all the other teams, as soon as they adjusted aswell NIP was long gone and has been since, I barely remember who they are.
2016-01-18 20:22:06
yeah, tsm won the useless ones and nip won in the majors
2016-01-19 07:40:38
NiP didn't win a major :> but good luck with your top15-20 players on that team that is going down because nothing worked for them in 20 years.
2016-01-19 12:43:50
retard =) also, they were still better than tsm at majors. the danish team sucks so much they can't even reach an important final, they are so fucking useless :(
2016-01-20 07:50:24
2016-01-16 18:22:14
lol u dont saying anything about snax being higher than him tho
2016-01-16 18:30:37
VP Wouldnt reach ANYTHING w/o snax going Godmode when Device is Onliner and Choker lol
2016-01-16 18:32:55
lol is snax a choker then? because they carried the same amt
2016-01-16 18:36:38
its a danish website, what did you expect ?
2016-01-16 18:38:32
2016-01-17 00:48:25
Device snax > Flusha ???

Hell no come from a nip fangay
2016-01-16 18:08:15
If device gets a higher rank, I'll just stop visiting this worthless site.
2016-01-16 18:09:10
2016-01-16 18:10:52
he will be.. because flusha is #5 device might 3rd or 4th.. Like WTF

I am a nip fangay but i'll put flsuha #1 to be honest.
2016-01-16 18:11:30
I don't think flusha deserves #5 or higher. I believe krimz was much better than him in 2015. But well that's just my opinion
2016-01-16 18:13:19
for fnatic rank.. this is my opinion (Top 10 world)
#1st flusha #3rd olof #5th krimz
2016-01-16 18:14:48
flusha was earlt 2015 worst player in fnatic by far
2016-01-16 18:16:15
since Katowice till he's the most consistent player in fnatic
2016-01-16 18:18:50
no in summer he was awful
2016-01-16 18:57:50
device is shokerino, wont be on the list.
2016-01-16 18:29:41
b..but what about all the trolls and terrible baiter on the forums???
2016-01-16 18:31:30
Pls do it ;)
2016-01-16 18:49:04
Stay away pls
2016-01-16 19:15:14
Good. The less micro brained users the better.
2016-01-17 08:23:04
i could think about snax being higher than flusha (he shouldnt anyways) but device is a fking joke.
2016-01-16 18:30:42
2016-01-16 18:08:20
why only 5 place?
2016-01-16 18:08:21
2016-01-16 18:08:23
nice :>
2016-01-16 18:08:23
ofc the danish faggot likes it

you know deep inside you that device does not deserve this at all
2016-01-16 18:11:58
with the weak psyche of device he only deserves #10 or something
2016-01-16 18:23:32

2016-01-16 18:23:51
I mean, it's pathetic to watch device play in big games.
2016-01-16 18:25:14
tsm choked big in majors and device was a big part of that
2016-01-16 18:26:49

still don't know how this ranking works?
2016-01-16 18:21:00
But flusha really deserved top4 more than snax or device. He is very smart player and he was carrying fnatic at majors
2016-01-16 18:57:14
Early 2015 he was awful, same as during summer (a lot of bottomfragging). Snax is the smartest player in cs:go so far, so how flusha is smarter in game than him?

Obv flusha is nuts, and imo #5 should be device, #4 Snax, #3 Flusha, #2 Olofm, #1 Guardian but well, still top 5.

Maybe he felt like a small part of this money he obtained thanks to stealing the wins of those more deserving had to somehow serve a good cause.

Flusha is an alleged cheater, and so are some of his teammates. That's all that matters here.

I've been financially helping MSF since I was 18 and acquired financial independance, and Greenpeace since I was something like 16. This doesn't make you a hero or anything, just a normal dude, plus, considering how bad Flusha's reputation was at that moment, I can very well see him do this as a move to get sympathy.
Or maybe he just donated out of kindness of heart, in which case, he's still an alleged cheater.
2016-01-16 19:10:34
Not a cheater until proven guilty, so just shut the fuck up you french nigger.
2016-01-16 19:36:38
Oh but he's been proven guilty by the community, that's enough for me.
If you wait on Valve to get shit done, GL mate, HL2 was 12 years ago, the last time you had sex also.
2016-01-16 19:47:21
The community, who are they to judge? They don't decide shit. He hasn't been banned yet, so he should be considered a cheater.
2016-01-16 20:38:15
But he is, and you blindly fanboying like a fucktard won't change shit either.

Also, you wrote "should be considered a cheater" LOL Coincidence, or just shows how much of a hypocrite you are ?

all of you saying Snax > flusha "hahaha"... snax is carrying VP with much less talent around him ... flush has fucking 4 players who are easily top 20 this year around him .. thats why he's lower in the ranking.

2016-01-16 18:15:18
i can understand GuardiaN but not snax and definetly not device
2016-01-16 18:16:14
Exactly. He's the best player at majors and 2nd best at other 250k tournaments in 2015 and is ranked 5th because people like device grinded out A TON of low level tournaments with weak competition where you can grind free ratings. Holy shit.

Looks like he's being punished for not attending as many low level tournaments as other teams did (fnatic in general were very selective). Imagine him attending all the low level Gfinity tournaments and such.

The absurd thing is last year they emphasized big tournaments soooo much more than this year in the ranking.

expected him 3rd. Dunno how device and snax could be ranked above the master clutcher. Also even tho he had less impact than last year (mostly because olof was rekting everyone by himself for a while) ,for me, he was still the key player in fnatic (specially after pronax left)
2016-01-16 18:16:29

Snax will be in top4 without almost any LAN victory. GJ HLTV, you fuckin retards.

Also Devve. The biggest choker in biggest matches.

You rated #5 the most consistent player in the scene. It might be joke.

Olof and flusha must be in top #2 together. They reserved that.

And also i think Snax did nothing in 2015. He shouldn't be in top ranks. Karrigan reserves more.

Who cares CEVO tournaments? All of the their opponents in CEVO's except Na'Vi are completely rubbish. Conquest is the semi-finalist of last event. Maybe that gives you any idea about the tournament.

Also Crown International. They won against Renegades and Immunity. ROFL. VP, C9 and 4 Aussie teams. I think that can't counted as a LAN victory.

There are 2 LAN victories. It equals almost any. And it shouldn't be enough for top 5 ranking.
2016-01-16 18:39:00
And karrigan reserves more, yes. He did everything in 2015. He was IGL, AWPer, entry-fragger and clutcher when needed.(except kennys thing of course lol)

Are you sure you are watching the same majors as the rest of the world.
2016-01-16 18:44:11

Whoever makes these rankings is WAY PAST HIS PRIME compared to how they were in 1.6.

How can you be 5th when your the best player in majors and 2nd best rated in all 250k tournaments?

The only reason why he has some inconsistent stats in tournaments nobody heard off is because his team mates stole his kills.

There is literally no arguement how he isnt Top 2 at the very least.

Guess this is a popularity contest afterall with Olof being first and GuardianN second....

2016-01-16 18:23:32
Dude these rankings were awfull last year aswell.

Flusha was better in every single statistic than Get_Right and achieved 5x more yet Get_Right who wasnt even top 10 won.
Only because HTLV didnt have balls to place FLusha first due to cheating accusations.

If this ranking was based on stats and achivements it would be:

1. Oloff
2. Flusha
3. Snax

In our hearts yes! That's what's counts for me aswell! Well said my friend.

Although it's very harsh to call the list useless, the list is very statsbased and im sure hltv does a good job keeping count on every possible stat :) as long as olof will be no 1I'm still happy!

Snax might be above flusha, cuz he carried VP on his back most of the tournaments.

flusha has 4 equal teammates, which can win them tournaments by themselves.

That's why in this year Snax > flusha.

idk why device would be above him though...
2016-01-16 18:20:45
I am not sure if you check those statistics but you can see here clearly Pasha was better clutcher than Get Right this year, so I don't know why you call him as nobrainer and Christopher as clutch king
2016-01-16 18:20:58
Well I think he deserve a higher spot. What a bullshit
2016-01-16 18:21:08
It's like a bad joke. Snax and Device were much worse than Flusha this year.
2016-01-16 18:21:13
Ok,let's just look at the majors won and tournaments:

Flusha(1 of 3 main topfraggers in the best team in the world who won 3 major titles in 2015,1 of the best clutch players in the world) - #5
Device(1 of 2 topfraggers in the ~2-4th best team in the world,lost in semis on major and once lost in quarters on major) - above flusha.
2016-01-16 18:21:25

performing every major playoffs match of the year > performing against flipsid3 in the group stages of majors and then choking.

the ONLY tournaments that all teams even practice for are the majors. it's where all the players are at their peak. it's where we see the measurement of the players at the highest level. it's the only tournaments everyone has the motivation to practice for (especially flusha admits this).

it should be given so much more weight than shit tournaments that only half the players have even pracced for...

2016-01-16 18:32:20
should be top 3 imo
2016-01-16 18:32:48
He had to be top3. You can't seriously think flusha was worse than device (LOL) or snax...
2016-01-16 18:33:01
Personally think he's more impactful than olofmeister. Such a statistical beast and foremost a complete god when it comes to majors. Really weird that players like snax and device are considered to have a better and more impactful 2015 than flusha.
2016-01-16 18:33:07
best rate in majors of all players
Most majors won ever

= 5th best?

2016-01-16 18:33:45
what a joke.. at least top3 imo
2016-01-16 18:33:53
This ranking is garbage. Flusha was TOP3 player without any doubt. How the fuck device the most overrated player in CS history will be higher than guy who won so much and didn't fail in crucial moments?

lol device, snax >>flusha? ayyyyy
2016-01-16 18:37:17
The authors just can't decide what to emphasize, and pick and choose it between the players. Last year you could barely make the top of the list unless you won LOTS of huge tournaments and performed in later stages of big tournaments. This year that suddenly means SO MUCH LESS for the author in this scenario. DECIDE AND STICK TO YOUR METRICS.

This guy is the by far highest rated player in the playoffs of majors this year, he has absolutely no equal in it. Not even olof has a better rating after group stages of majors than him...

Now you can reply with a 1000 word monologue full of empty words, t1gwris.

snax > flusha is probably the most retarded thing to do , i really disagree with this one, this is not right
2016-01-16 18:57:51
flusha deserves top 3 no doubt.
2016-01-16 18:58:45
be silent fangays, flusha have rating on lan games just 1.08 snax 1.12 and device 1.16, so 5rank is for him much.
2016-01-16 18:58:51
device and snax got those ratings from MUCH smaller tournaments and less important games than him. flusha didnt go to a ton of low level tournaments like device and snax did, he only attended the most important tier 1 tournaments. that's why.
2016-01-16 19:01:32
1.22 major rating

2 majors won

best tournament performance of the year (ESL One Cologne)

device and tsm did nothing in majors

2016-01-16 19:02:37
top 2 player got placed in 5th
2016-01-16 19:00:29
he deserves top 3 at least! shit rank
2016-01-16 19:01:21
snax and device above flusha? aight I'm just going to consider HLTV's ranking 1 out of any random other rankings
2016-01-16 19:02:30
What this means is: To be ranked high, make sure to attend a ton of lower level tournaments like Gfinity events even if it burns you out as a player because it allows you to grind free rating against trash teams like EZSkins. Because apparently it will make up for it when you choke when it actually matters and 250k is on the line.
2016-01-16 19:03:23
I don't understand why hltv won't put XANTARES top1 with this braindead logic

Device and Snax better than flusha xDDDDDDDDDD

2016-01-16 19:05:35
so many fangayas here
2016-01-16 19:05:59
because 50k$ and 100k$ tournaments mean jack shit and that's why device will be above him. no one cares about them and they shouldn't be given almost any weight because half the teams attending them are tier 2, giving the tier 1 players playing in them inflated ratings.

2016-01-16 19:10:08
2016-01-16 19:06:41
He should have been top three, can't see why playing with olofmeister turns against flusha, he has almost always picked up the slack when the rest of his team didn't, with such good ratings and with that amount of big wins, he should have been placed higher.

2016-01-16 19:14:22
Many of his best performances were when olof wasnt performing or was choking.. He had to carry them kicking and screaming through cologne playoffs when olof was choking hard and going 0-0-7.
2016-01-16 19:19:00
snax and device over flusha? I aren't think that
2016-01-16 19:15:43
shouldve been top3, how is snax above flusha? thats ridiculous. flusha was so good at majors...
2016-01-16 19:16:48
Lol it isn't based only on majors.. Look, Flusha has 3 TMs in top 10. Look how hard snax had to carry virtus.pro when byali wasn't in his best shape in 2015. Neo only played well, Pasha played like bot... Taz as old man didn't play too well too. Snax deserves TOP5, Device who carries Karrigan and Xyp9x with dupreeh and cajunb sometimes surely deserves TOP 5 too.. Flusha didnt play so well this year except Cologne (so well = 1 of 3 best players of the world), because he didn't even have to. His team was playing so well. I think Snax, Device and Guardian are deserving place above Flusha, because they were carrying their teams to TOP 5 teams in the world :)
2016-01-16 19:24:24
i agree with most of the points you made, but still flusha was carrying his team in the majors, and without him his team wouldnt win katowice or cologne. him and olofmeister - who we know almost for sure is #1. flusha didnt need to be the best so he wasnt - true, but when he did need to be the best he WAS, and we see that in majors, and in the events fnatic struggled in.
2016-01-16 20:15:47
Maybe you are right :) Everyone can have his own opinion. I think that guys who were making this ranking had really hard time to make a decision who should be 3rd, who 4th and tho 5th. In TOP20 you can't have 2 guys on one position, so they had to decide. Maybe they were wrong, like me. It is really hard to make fair ranking.
+1 for you for good reply, not something like "stfu toilet cleaner" :D Greets :)
2016-01-16 21:44:50
agreed, its all a matter of opinion. snax is my favorite vp player, and i think his decision making is phenomenal, as well as his positioning and aim. this year he was a bit like aizy in dignitas, especially towards the end of the year. i think its fair to argue he was even the best player at some parts of the year, certainly a top5 player for the majority of the year.

im not saying if he gets top3 he didnt deserve it. i can see an argument for him being top3 and i can even agree with it. all i am saying is that flusha did too much for fnatic imo to not be top3, although i can again see an argument against him being top3 and probably even at some points made an argument for him not to be top3.

5th is still great, and gotta remember - the ranking could always have been worse.
2016-01-16 22:14:00
Yeah, I totally agree with you now.
2016-01-17 02:51:45
lol pasha in top4
2016-01-16 19:20:41
personally id put 1. flusha 2. guardian 3. olof and i def dont think snax or devve deserve to be above flusha at least he should be top 3

Except flusha has better stats than device in virtually every single big tournament (250k) of the year :v
2016-01-16 20:49:03
Hmm haven't checked those stats in detail... but flusha also played really bad the last quarter of 2015(except dreamhack), while devve is consistent.

Device has a 1.12 rating in Majors (flusha 1.22) and 1.15 overall in LAN's (flusha 1.07 )

So basically it's a choice between consistency and being the best at Majors (while sometimes sucking). You have a valid point though and I don't think much separates devve, snax and flusha, while I think Guardian and Olof clearly are #2 and #1. So we need to address whether Majors (and other big events) should weigh even more than they already do.

My post were actually directed towards all the hate posts :D

2016-01-16 19:49:44
Flusha was better than Device, Snax and maybe Guardian in the big games this year IMO.
2016-01-16 19:36:13
Not only big games count you know :) 1.07 rating overall ONLY
2016-01-16 19:39:32
I know, I was just stating, he's possibly the best big game player at the moment. Going big at major finals should carry more weight than Device going big in groups but choking in semis when it truly matters.

2016-01-16 20:36:26
He only attended BIG tournaments while those two players attended tonnes of low level tournaments with half tier 2 teams, giving them an inflated rating by comparison. Hence why you look at rating from tournaments with tier 1 only.
2016-01-16 20:26:42
lol, should be #2 or #´3
2016-01-16 19:37:26
This is such a Bullshit Flusha should be top3 easily and for me flusha-olofm-guardian this should be list with order

Anyway this list just bullshit dupreeh flamie shoxie gtr kennys 2much undeserved placement only thing they care players fucking fanbase thats all and btw im Snax fanboy all the way but he didnt better this year then flusha
2016-01-16 19:38:21
1 Olof

2/3 Guardian/Flusha

This is the most common top 3 I've seen posted by the community and I have to agree. These 3 go big in the big money games.
2016-01-16 19:58:33
should be higher..

2016-01-16 20:00:58
Everyone that still believes that flusha used to cheat is retarded.

He just happened to be the best player during KQLY's ban and everyone was witchhunting for cheaters. Flusha, the guy that rarely ever speaks and just has insane gamesense was the perfect target for the insecure scum part of the community to boost their egos.

Flusha has been the best player in CS:GO for over a year now and everybody knows it. Olof has insane skill but could he IGL from one day to another like flusha? Very much doubt it.

Flusha doesn't give 2 shits about rankings, good for him. I hope that in a few years, he will be universally recognized as one of the best (maybe the best) CS:GO players ever.
2016-01-16 19:52:57

2016-01-16 20:29:22
This ranking is a fucking joke putting a choker like device higher than flusha, flusha was literally the best player on fnatic at every major and hard carried them at every 250k tourney, especially when olof wasn't performing. flusha is a top 3 player INDISPUTABLY, fuck this joke biased site rofl even thorin can make a list 50 times better
2016-01-16 20:52:48

t1gwris seriously? Are you giving more importance to smaller tournaments? i am definite that device got a higher rating in smaller tournaments and he choked a lot in majors... he might played well in the group stages but he did choke in the quarters/semis.. i feel finals should be given more weight-age than group stage matches.. just my opinion though
2016-01-17 08:29:33

he changed opinion so much since last year

flusha #5?? lol this joke goes on and on... shame on u HLTV
everysince he is the IGL of fnatic his KD maybe dropped, but not much and THIS shows how good of a fragger he is... and he was ALWAYS #1 at the biggest tournaments... so if you just count the majors flusha has to be #1 without him fnatic didnt win atleast the last 2 majors... but ok

flusha easily top3... imo behind olof at #2 this year.. and that is even close flusha/olof #1/#2

Seems very uncertain who is gonna be 4th and 3rd now. Pasha hasn't been ranked yet and last year he was ranked high, would be strange if he got top4+, we all know that Olof & Guardian is 1st and 2nd
2016-01-17 10:00:59
should have been

2016-01-17 10:03:44
Flusha should be on 1st place
2016-01-17 10:24:55
Even though I don't like the guy, I'm sure he deserved to be above Snax & device.
But I can be wrong, lets see the stats from these two to judge if it's right or wrong.
2016-01-17 11:08:29
should be top 3 at least
2016-01-17 12:16:47
Lol, should've been at least #3 to be honest.
2016-01-17 13:10:41

2016-01-17 14:33:21

2016-01-17 14:40:59
He should be #1

flusha deserved #1 or at least #2 .. he was the reason why fnatic won the major twice in a row...
2016-01-19 01:41:06
