Top 20 players of 2016: flamie (12)
Time: 2017-01-09 20:07
Game: Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

Egor "flamie" Vasilyev returns to the top 20 ranking for the second time after he broke out in 2015 and earned the 14th spot. In 2016 the 19-year-old moved up to 12th place thanks to incredible play in the first four months, during which he received an MVP and three EVP's.

Egor "flamie" Vasilyev emerged in our records at a very young age, a week away from his 16th birthday during Copenhagen Games 2013, at the time one of the bigger international events.

Famed for funding his mix-teams which always carried the name Nostalgie, Alexey "OverDrive" Birukov brought the youngster to Denmark's capital for his first offline event, alongside veterans such as Dmitry "hooch" Bogdanov and Eduard "ed1k" Ivanov. Despite Nostalgie losing all seven maps, mostly in one-sided fashion, flamie showed his talents and got to play against one of the best teams in the world at the time, the CIS version of Virtus.pro.

"I was playing a lot of Russian mixes called CIS Gather I think, there were a lot of good players from CIS like old VP, Na`Vi, etc. Hooch decided to invite me to his stack with OverDrive because he believed that I could show my best."

After his first showing in late March, flamie didn't reappear in our database for more than one map until August, shortly before his first longer tenure started in USSR. He stayed in that team for the better part of a year and got much-needed experience against some of the world's best teams in two seasons of SLTV's league, before Andrey "B1ad3" Gorodenskiy's dAT decided to take a chance on him in July 2014.

With dAT, flamie qualified for ESL One Cologne 2014 and attended his first Major, where he held his own while the rest of the team crumbled under the Polish Virtus.pro and iBUYPOWER. However, the team only played in online competitions throughout the rest of the year, as they failed to qualify for numerous offline events.

flamie entered 2015 under the HellRaisers banner and attended two more events with them, including his second major, ESL One Katowice. At that point he got the offer of his career in Natus Vincere. He was on trial in the beginning, but a month-long period was enough for the team to sign him on a permanent basis.

Winning four titles and finishing runners-up five times, which included DreamHack Open Cluj-Napoca, flamie helped Natus Vincere reach new heights in the remaining nine months of 2015. Thanks to his fantastic play over the year, he earned the 14th place in 2015's Top 20 players.

Before 2015 came to a close, flamie carried his team to a second place at ESL ESEA Pro League Season 2 Finals, where fnatic triumphed after an incredibly tight series. At the beginning of 2016, he and Natus Vincere picked up where they left off. flamie continued to play well throughout SL i-League StarSeries XIV Finals, although he was unable to repeat his great performance in another disappointing final against the Swedes and Na`Vi began to develop a mental block in the finals, which we asked flamie about:

"I think we had some mental problems with fnatic, when we met them we always lost without any chances. From my side, I didn't see any extra pressure [in the finals], but sometimes I played worse than in quarters and semis."

flamie outshined everyone from his team at the following two events, DreamHack ZOWIE Open Leipzig and IEM Katowice. At the former, he exploded in the grand final against Luminosity and put up a 1.48 rating in two overtime-worthy maps, which gave him his one and only MVP last year.

IEM Katowice wasn't as successful for Na`Vi, who finished 3rd-4th after the Brazilians were the ones to get away with the win that time, adding two more mouth-watering maps to the already extremely close rivalry. However, flamie was the main reason why his team got through a tough Tempo Storm quarter-final and he made an incredible effort in the narrow semi on his way to an EVP award.


flamie carried Natus Vincere to semi-finals in Katowice

When asked to highlight a special moment from his two best events of the year, flamie mentioned the Luminosity semi-final in Poland:

"Yeah, I played very well at DH Leipzig and IEM Katowice. I remember the match against SK on Overpass in Katowice, that was the match where we showed our boost I guess, and I remember FalleN's magical 1v3 clutch."

The Russian youngster cooled off at Counter Pit League Season 2 Finals while Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács carried Natus Vincere to their second title in 2016, but he was back to his old self just in time for MLG Columbus.

The Major saw flamie in solid form, helping Na`Vi pass through Cloud9 and Virtus.pro in groups convincingly. The quarter-final match-up against a Jacob "pyth" Mourujärvi-less NiP proved to be another comfortable encounter for Danylo "Zeus" Teslenko and company, and Astralis only put up a fight on one of the two maps in the semi-finals. Na`Vi advanced to the Major final without losing a map on the back of stellar play from Ioann "Edward" Sukhariev and flamie, but they couldn't make up for an injured GuardiaN in yet another encounter with Luminosity.

"The most memorable [moment] for me is the MLG Columbus Major, we were playing so well in all matches before the final and we were like a super team, except in the final game."

The Slovakian player took two weeks off to undergo treatment and Natus Vincere used Sergey "starix" Ischuk for the group stage of DreamHack Masters Malmö. After they survived against GODSENT and CLG in groups, GuardiaN came back into the mix for Na`Vi to complete the tournament in their full lineup. The first two stages of playoffs against TyLoo and EnVyUs went Na`Vi's way one-sidedly once more, but yet again they couldn't overcome the final boss, NiP. flamie returned from Sweden with another EVP to his name, his third in a month and a half.


flamie's fantastic play gave him three EVP's in a month and a half, including one in Malmö

After two big events in a row, Na`Vi attended a medium one, SL i-League Invitational #1, where Virtus.pro were the only other elite-level team present. Shockingly falling short to Dobry&Gaming in the first round, starix's squad had to fight their way through the lower bracket. They did just that, defeating FlipSid3, GODSENT, and the aforementioned Poles on their way to the final. flamie had been fluctuating throughout the entire event, which didn't change in the final against Wiktor "TaZ" Wojtas and co., where Natus Vincere once again fell short.

With a month-long break from offline events, it was time for Group E of ELEAGUE Season 1, which included FlipSid3, mousesports, and Echo Fox. Na`Vi won four out of six maps in the round-robin and then passed the bracket stage without a flaw, with flamie playing well in the wins.

That trend continued at ESL One Cologne. In the group wins against FlipSid3 and NiP, flamie recorded well-above-average numbers, as he did in the first map versus Liquid. However, in the following two, he dropped to alarming levels while Natus Vincere exited the Major in quarter-finals.


After two consecutive silver medals at Majors, Na`Vi finished 5th-8th in Cologne

Returning to Atlanta with a disappointing journey at the Major, Na`Vi survived a narrow encounter with Cloud9 in ELEAGUE Season 1 quarter-finals. In the semis, they lost another big series to fnatic, who dominated Cobblestone and got the edge on Train.

During the ensuing off-season, Na`Vi bid farewell to their longest-standing member Zeus and welcomed Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev, who had become a free agent with his tenure in Liquid coming to an end.

"My role was a support player with Zeus and it's the same with s1mple, but now he is like more of a star player in our duo, that's why I don't have as many frags as before, but I'm OK with that, all for the team."

With nearly a month worth of practice behind them, the new lineup debuted at SL i-League StarSeries Season 2 Finals. The change didn't go as planned; s1mple wasn't his usual self while the team got upset at the hands of TyLoo and dropped to Astralis after overtime. flamie fought valiantly against the Danes and finished the event miles away from his teammates, but to no avail.

Due to the new coaching rules being in place for the first time at Natus Vincere's next event, ESL One New York, they were forced to switch leadership to Denis "seized" Kostin while coach starix had to transition into a much less active role. That didn't seem to affect the team much in the short term. Na`Vi powered through the Swiss group with ease and edged Liquid in semi-finals, as flamie peaked in the 16-13 win on Train, massacring the North American team with a 39-19 score (1.90 rating). He dropped dangerously low in the grand final against Virtus.pro, but GuardiaN and s1mple made up for the lack of performance for Na`Vi's first title with the new player.

"Yeah, I remember the map against Liquid. I don't know what happened, but I was shooting almost everything in that game. Sure, I was happy, because it was our first win in 250k tournaments and I know that I helped my team with that Train performance."

EPICENTER: Moscow followed, where flamie recorded his only poor showing in 2016. While he and GuardiaN didn't show up to most of the groups, s1mple, Edward and seized pushed Na`Vi in their three wins. That was enough for first place in the group due to round difference, as all teams finished with the same record. flamie picked it up in the first two maps against dignitas in the semis, but he disappeared again on Nuke, a close deciding map.

"I don't think that I was on bad form, but I just played bad almost every map at EPICENTER. Sometimes it happens, you can't always play well, unfortunately it happened in my home city where everyone from my family was on stage."


EPICENTER: Moscow was flamie's only poor event of the year

For the third time in 2016, Natus Vincere traveled to Atlanta for ELEAGUE Season 2 groups. There, they fell to SK on two occasions, in the opener and the decider, and exited the event in 9th-12th place.

To finish the year on a rather low note, Natus Vincere added a third group stage exit to their resumé at IEM Oakland, losing three out of five matches in the round-robin. Apart from the initial loss to Liquid, flamie stayed around the average performance, while no one apart from s1mple excelled.

flamie said the following about his improvement in the ranking in 2016:

"I'm proud to be better than last year, it was very tough to be better because 2016 was much more competitive. Personally, I don't think I played a lot better than last year, in the last three months I played really badly, maybe because s1mple joined our team and I changed my role, but maybe it's just because I don't feel confident right now."

We also asked about his goals for 2017:

"My personal goal is to be a top 10 player next year, I will work more on my individual skill and team play, I will try to fix my mental problems, and I want to be one of the best players in the best team in the world."

Why is he the 12th best player in 2016?

flamie earned the 12th position in the top 20 with five exceptional displays throughout 2016 and overall solid play in all but one of his events. He was the biggest contributor to one of Na`Vi's three titles at DreamHack ZOWIE Open Leipzig, the most stacked medium-sized event, for which he earned an MVP award.

All of flamie's four EVP's come from big events, including the MLG Columbus Major and one of the most competitive non-Major tournaments, IEM Katowice, where he carried his team to a semi-final finish. The 19-year-old also holds the 10th place in rating at Majors (1.11), although mainly thanks to his performance in Columbus.

He played a pivotal part in the team's success throughout 2016, recording a 1.08 rating in fifth-most 51 big maps played (compared to his 1.07 rating overall), the most notable of which are the DreamHack Leipzig grand final and the semi-finals at MLG Columbus and ESL One New York.

From January to April, flamie was Natus Vincere's best player and one of the best players in the world at the time. However, he dropped to third place in his team for the remainder of the year due to a lack of impact and standout performances, which cost him a higher spot in the top 20.

Bold prediction

When asked to name an upcoming player who could venture into the top 20 in 2017, flamie put Gambit's Abay "HObbit" Khasenov under the spotlight:

Abay "HObbit" Khasenov

"I think HObbit has a lot potential to be a top 20 player next year if he keeps playing like he did in the past months, he is a very talented guy and I believe he can be in the top 20 next year."

Stay tuned to our Top 20 players of 2016 ranking powered by EGB.com and take a look at the Introduction article to learn more about how the players were picked.

totally deserved!

This year is being a kinda weird top 20, feels like some of them are in there because who they are instead of because of they have done.
2017-01-09 20:15:52
Did you read it at all?
2017-01-09 20:27:04
Who do you mean then? Flamie or someone else?
2017-01-09 22:32:48
Flamie deserved top 20, but in my opinion maybe not this high. Then there are Get Right and Guardian who I think they played great but they would still be in top 21-25 (out of top 20 but still close), like, I think there are other players that played better or had more impact than them this year/constant. And then KennyS I think is a little bit too high in the top 20.
But this is my opinion tho.
2017-01-09 22:48:29
I half agree in that there is some prestige from years past playing part in the name you listed, but the point I feel is forgotten is that without some prestige to play part the top 20 would merely be a list of who played best in the most recent events.
2017-01-10 00:28:08
Agree with gtr! Thought i was the only one thinking that ^_^
2017-01-10 19:01:59
Hobbit should be in this top20 =(
2017-01-09 20:21:59
Hobbit played on good level only in the end of the year, so mb next year
2017-01-09 20:26:01
You mean this year
2017-01-09 20:56:25
No he means next year, because this years list is mostly going to be in 2018.
2017-01-10 02:36:47
He also said "Hobbit played on good level only in the end of the year", not "in the end of last year". He doesn't word 2016 as "last year", so why are you being a pedantic idiot saying he did?

We all know what he means. On the list of the top 20 players - get this - OF 2017, Hobbit should be included. 2017 is THIS year, so the list is of THIS year that's going on now. Just like how Hobbit only played good at the end of "the year" (where THE year means the year the list is based on).

He's not on this list, neither is NEO, k0nfig and byali.

Took people long enough to realize this.
2017-01-09 20:31:27
it's stupid, can u tell me one team in the world who would rather have flamie over kennyS? and neo have to be on the list, just higher.
2017-01-09 20:58:53
I'm not saying I personally agree. I've just seen the stats and I've seen enough previous list to know what stats HLTV value.

There's no way k0nfig or NEO are on this list.

u are probably right but both were tremendously important for there teams when they won tournaments. neo with that crazy 1vs5 and k0nfig was mvp (i think) when dignitas won.

2017-01-10 03:47:25
Well it is particularly easy, any CIS team would prefer flamie and any French/Belg team would prefer KennyS. But, if we would imagine the competition for slot in a team like FaZe for example, it would be based only of role fitting(if they need strong CT rifler -> flamie, if Sniper -> KennyS).
So, it is kinda hard to compare directly.
And even if you building strong new team, in-between KennyS and Flamie I would pick Flamie, just because of consistency. I really like KennyS fragmovies, but when it comes to the major or premier tournament - consistency is the key.
2017-01-09 22:34:30
i agree that u can't have 5 awps in team but kennys has potential to be best player in the world, he was practically top3 or top5 player in last few years, i don't believe that flamie can carry any tier1 team like kennys can. flamie is like TACO or let's say KRiMZ, they are great players but u know they are not olof or cold.
2017-01-10 03:56:16
Well, KennyS used to be like olof used to be or cold or s1mple. His period from January to August was just terrible performance. I agree that at the end of the year he started doing something like in 2014 but it is not enough.
2017-01-10 13:09:51
I'd say flamie had a bigger impact than kennyS in 2016.
2017-01-10 01:00:16
he's team had more success but i'am not sure how much it was because flamie. don't get me wrong, he's a great player but motor of that team are guardian and now simple, i would even put seized before flamie.

"wtf hltv so fkn biased... flame played like shit entire 2016 and get in top 20 lmao"

I assume you dont watch pro cs that often? At the very least not NaVi?.

And since you comment that, then you most likely havnt looked at the Big events, major and LAN stats of flamie.

Just another hltv user that makes a comment without even knowing anything lol

maybe he was good in 2015, but not in 2016 for sure
2017-01-09 20:20:54
I don't agree. His stats for tournament are just amazing. Out of 14 lans, only 1 is below average, 6 is average, and 7 better than average, and out of that 5 EVP and 1 MVP (DH Leipzig where they beat Luminosity(SK Gaming now) and he dropped 70 frags on 2 maps in finals.)
So, IDK dude, but it is something you have consider.
2017-01-09 22:38:34
no edward, and olof and flusha >>> flamie ??? I don't think so HLTV
2017-01-09 20:22:04
no byali too, what a joke HLTV ¬¬
2017-01-09 20:23:11
flamie is trash like always

he and seized are always bottom fragging

2017-01-09 20:22:59
Mhmmmm do you even watch Na'Vi games?

He started to play bad at the end of the year at 2-3 events, but throughout the year he was one of Na'Vi best players.

byali, k0nfig, f0rest won't be on the list.

Instead Olofmeister, GuardiaN and automatic/Stewie2k.

It's top 20 of the year, not just last few months.

2017-01-10 00:18:50
Olofmeister will not be on the list. k0nfig will.
2017-01-10 00:56:50
Yeah GuardiaN won't be on the list instead of any of those players. HE IS ALREADY PLACED......
And how does your last argument make sense, when k0nfig has been playing well the entire year, and autimatic only has been relevant for 4-5 months of the year, not outperforming k0nfig or f0rest in the slightest? If anyone would've been close to the top 10, having only been playing top level cs for half the year, it would've been magisk, and he wasn't, so how the hell do you expect autimatic to be.. :D

2017-01-10 01:01:27
Yeah, forgot about GuardiaN lol.

There is just no way that k0nfig is higher than Magisk.
2017-01-10 02:09:39
cmon automatic and stewie2K?LOL

f0rest will 100% be on the list as he was better than gtr sooo..

guardian already was and k0nfig was worse than magisk when magisk and him played together and konfig and his team didnt have that great of impact before so no way he is ahead of magisk

the player that is debatable of entering the top 20 is scream

top 3 coldzera device s1mple
top 4-5: fallen,shox
top 6-8: flusha,snax,dupreeh
top 9-11: f0rest,scream and olof

mate if GTR is in the top 20, f0rest 100% is gonna be there too
2017-01-10 03:01:24
Hahahahhaha this is fucking joke.I like flamie i mean his plays but he did nothing this year all other players expect gtr did much better then him this year.
2017-01-09 20:37:24
For sure GTR didn't and yes flamie except of the begin he doesn't deseve this ranking. But you how stupid the list makers are. I haven't seen a worse list than this tbh
2017-01-09 20:38:27
Good Job flamienator!
2017-01-09 20:37:43
flamie>kennyS, magic ??
2017-01-09 20:39:34
No Edward but Flamie? I told you those listmakers are simply braindead fanboys. I hope thst they won't ever be able to put a list on the internet. They're completely braindead. I've now no doubts about them
2017-01-09 20:39:57
How can you be so clueless and biased ? Flamie was a beast for the first four months edward only played good at mlg columbus. As you can see above he has like 1 mvp and 4 evps and het you think edward should be there instead of flamie.
2017-01-09 21:49:09
Edward was their carry from MLG till the summer break plus some exceptions after the summer. I am for sure not cluesless lul. Because Flamie impact really dropped after MLG....
2017-01-10 21:58:13
RiP Byali/Flusha
2017-01-09 20:42:29
Flusha not rip yet
2017-01-09 21:29:37
flamie is best
2017-01-09 20:45:02
well deserved
2017-01-09 20:47:43
What can I say, it happens :D
2017-01-09 20:55:06
Flamie is awesome player.
2017-01-09 20:57:25
unexpected
2017-01-09 20:58:04
Sick performance from him in 2016
Though i would place him a bit lower(like 16th or so)
2017-01-09 21:28:17
wtf?
2017-01-09 21:29:19
he is younger than me and he have BMW ! fucking man i like him
2017-01-09 21:38:38
dikkke BMW jongen!
2017-01-10 04:54:49

2017-01-09 21:42:53
The best russian player after s1mple. s1mple will be 6th.
2017-01-09 21:46:40
but s1mple isn't russian xD
2017-01-09 21:55:43
true, he is NA star
2017-01-09 23:16:27
lets go Liquid!
2017-01-10 04:38:24
His parents has russian roots or something
2017-01-10 15:13:21
Deserved. Zeus leaving had his impact on him, but he was a monster for the 1st part of the year.

Imo I think we won't see those performances again :(
2017-01-09 21:55:20
lol gg

this ranking just stop making sense
2017-01-09 22:02:41
ahahah what a joke xD
2017-01-09 22:07:51

2017-01-11 21:28:19
that becouse NaVi in 2016 >>> Dignitas in 2016 > Envy in 2016.
2017-01-10 04:39:43
i still waiting for elige :(
2017-01-09 22:49:05
Flamie deserves to be in the top 20 for sure, but not in 12th place.

He had a strooooooooooong run in early 2016, but sucked from June to December.
2017-01-09 23:30:28
flamie underrated, to me hes one of the best in the world, if navi find themselfs this year he can be top5 for sure!!
2017-01-09 23:48:44
He's very good but has been playing BAD
2017-01-10 01:09:13
wut
2017-01-10 00:36:44
nice
2017-01-10 01:05:06
Look at their results before s1mple and after s1mple lol before simple top 4 or finals of every event they went to after simple out in groups 3/5 tournaments nice.
2017-01-10 01:08:02
That was not a good year for Flamie. Not deserved.
2017-01-10 01:08:37
Flamie is very good at aiming but he is stupid. He always fakes plants/defuses in 1v1 clutch situation and he never succeeds.

Zeus was able to help Flamie in-game but now he was gone. I dunno if Flamie can get back his form but for sure seized is not that kind of leader who can read the situation well.
2017-01-10 01:14:04
When you realize Starix was actually the one doing most of the in-game calls and not Zeus.
2017-01-10 02:39:12
100% ofc
2017-01-10 03:02:22
Who next?MSL?Noooooooo
2017-01-10 05:50:38
Ez for flamie. Hope in the next year he will be in top 10 because he totally deserve it.
2017-01-10 06:33:57

2017-01-10 10:09:30
Gratz Flamie!!!! :) GL in this year!
2017-01-10 11:16:03
expected
2017-01-10 11:27:07
what does EVP mean??
2017-01-10 12:21:56
1 MVP per tournament and 5 EVP (Exceptionally Valuable Players)
2017-01-10 13:53:48
ty estonian guy
2017-01-11 15:29:02
flamie? he havent played aswell as all the others on the list soo far
2017-01-10 13:51:28
flamie always playing consistently in Na'Vi, always there to do his job, hope this year Na'Vi can win a little more with s1mple!
2017-01-10 14:26:04
flamie over Guardian? really?
2017-01-10 14:42:48
Yes, Guardian was unstable previous year.
2017-01-10 16:54:47
deserved
2017-01-10 17:56:42
your mother could go sleep in garbage ))
2017-01-10 19:04:08
NaVi player in TOP20 4Head
2017-01-10 19:51:30
who says that he doesn't deserve it, just do not look his skills, they look on not so great fame in his name.But it is foolish for even the most famous names of the most famous players, once will mean nothing ...
