coldzera deserves top 1 spot not NiKo
United States @GeorgeWashington 
Many people are suddenly saying that NiKo deserves the top 1 spot of 2017. I will now show you why that statement is utterly false: cold K/D ratio on LAN: 1.38 NiKo K/D ratio on LAN: 1.26 cold maps played on LAN: 126* NiKo maps played on LAN: 86* cold K/D ratio, big events only: 1.33 NiKo K/D ratio, big events only 1.28 cold maps played, big events only: 87* NiKo maps played, big events only: 75* cold rating, majors only: 1.32 NiKo rating, majors only: 1.08 cold K/D ratio, majors only: 1.54 NiKo K/D ratio, majors only: 1.07 // 1.54 vs 1.07 lol cold absolutely crushes him when it comes majors cold maps played, majors only: 15* NiKo maps played, majors only: 7* cold MVPs: 3 // DreamHack Summer, IEM Sydney, ESL One Cologne NiKo MVPs: 2 // ESL One New York, StarSeries Season 3 cold LAN events won: 5 // ESL One Cologne, ECS S3, DHS, IEM Sydney, cs_summit NiKo LAN events won: 3 // ELEAGUE Premier, ESL One New York, StarLadder Season 3 All stats are from 2017. *more maps played = more impressive, it's harder to maintain good stats when you have to play more Source:

you make it sound like that gap in rating is a big difference of level of performance. You make it sound like having high k/d is even near relevant to my point. Nt

cold actually has a higher k/d than NiKo

2017-10-22 03:25
France Chagror 
Cold is a better player than Fer, that's sure, but I still agree, Fer had more impact in 2017 than Cold imo, don't know if that means he's 1st, but I really think he should be above Cold
2017-10-22 03:55

yeah, honestly I'd say fer deserves it more than coldzera this year, especially if we're looking at his impact alone and disregard useless stats like k/d difference.

Niko will, without a doubt, be top 1 this year. Especially if the current form trend continues. Because SK are now trash and Faze are long due to remain at the top for a while.

Compares lurker 4th guy in with fucking niko. You cant even compare k0nfig with cold because k0nfig entry frags and is the reason why they are number 3 while sk's best player is fer and its not even close. Remove his agressive style and you whould never be talking about coldzera as even top 5.
2017-10-19 17:14

Cold is put into a position where he can shine the most. His ability to clutch and close out rounds is a reason why his a top player
2017-10-19 17:23
Niko does that too and he plays more demanding roles + he is put in less comfortable spots.

2017-10-19 17:33
its player of 2017 and not player of first half of 2017. NiKo has played awesome cs the whole year whereas cold and SK were good until july but then they sucked balls. Lets see how both perform the last 2 months and depending on that i would make a decision cause atm i think they are pretty much even.
2017-10-19 17:43
Dude, faz was good only on the last 2 events. Remember they getting out in the groups of pgl major and dh malmo? Lol
2017-10-19 18:11
iirc Faze made 4 finals in a row after changing their roster. ye they were bad 2 events but at the rest they attended they reached at least semis i think if not even finals.
2017-10-19 18:15
And sk won 5 of the 6 events they played before the major with cold being the mvp in 3 :>

SK is throwing the last tournaments. Ghost beating them 16:3, losing against Heroic 2-0. Even throwing against G2 on map points. I can say that SK had more bad tournaments then FaZe so stfu SK fangay. cold is only an eco fragger and hiding like a mouse on buy rounds. Carries 5 bots. NiKo even when he has 4 stars in the team he can still preform well.

you should diminish a number of colds stats give he basically farms against NA teams. and yes this includes tournaments e.g. cs_summit which for someone reason noone on hltv realised was approaching a tier 3 tournament.
2017-10-19 17:44
Sure, that's why he's the best rated player in the history of majors ;>

You can trash talk on George Washington for defaming FaZe clan in this site, but this thread is absolutely logical and there's a point shown. Coldzera was a monster for the first 8/9 months of the year (still is a monster, just not on the same level as back then). Helped SK win 5 tournaments in a row becoming the most successful team in 2017 by far (Astralis 2nd). Also has more MVP's than NiKo and most importantly was a key factor for SK to be #1 in the rankings for so long (5 months if not mistaken). NiKo has been absolutely nuts lately, for sure. Thing is he has only been superior to Coldzera since FaZe roster changes. (Before the changes, he was still amazing, but unfortunately for him Cold was still kicking butt in the meantime). And the FaZe roster changes happened roughly 4 months before the end of the year, which means NiKo hasn't been the best in the world for the most time out of the 12 months overall. Statistics won't lie. Coldzera will be #1 again. Thanks for putting my thoughts into numbers Mr. Threadmaker.

Coldzera was much better considering the entire 2017, won 5 tournaments with felps, got 3 MVPs I think, and even with SK playing at their worst level he's still a beast. Also NiKo didn't show up at all in the last major, while cold had 70 frags in the first 2 maps, no OT

K/D shoudlnt be considered in this comparison, as it doesnt hold any value due to the different roles they play. tldr; cold eco/exit hunter noob, Niko's impact much higher
