xantares dev1ce s1mple niko coldzera
niko highest skill ceiling imo
s1mple his has incredible aim
1. S1mple (incredible aim, exceptionally with rifle, awp and pistols, gamesense isn’t too bad as well, always shows up regardless of his teams performance)
individually it's probably either simple or niko
While playing for liquid, simple literally didnt take part in any teamplay and still fragged like crazy
Niko is probably the smarter player but he might be slightly worse skillwise
Pre awp nerf kennys was the player with the highest individual skill we'll likely ever see in csgo, albeit it only was for like 3-4 months.
kennyS in late 2014-early 2015 is for sure the highest skill ceiling that is reached by anyone. Kenny was someone people are afraid of even strafe peeking into, as he would straight up kill you with his incredible reaction time.
People who are closest to that skill level is NiKo and olofmeister at their prime. shox is also quite close.
well when i think of this i think that s1mple is insane with pistols, insane entry, insane awper, insane rifler, can close out rounds and clutches.
the biggest thing for me is that s1mple can pick up an awp and contest any tier 1 awper (kenny, fallen, guardian) and he can also pick up an ak and contest with any tier 1 rifler (cold, rain, fer).
cold and device are 2 of the only other players i can think of that can do both like s1mple to such a high level, rain is bad entry and cant awp at all.
Rain & Niko are the top2 aimer rn.
s1mple / NiKo, it comes in package.
if we're talking about just individual skill, then s1mple would be at the very top with Niko close behind.
shox and device are also up there.
s1mple good but not best (jw best)
There is no-one close to s1mple and niko.
s1mple probably only player who can awp and rifle at tier 1 level.
By far NiKo. One taps, one deags, can handle awp (s1mple can awp way better though)
Only thing is NiKo can't handle pressure. He chokes in finals. Thats all.
Atm he is the most talented.
S1mple Rain afterwards. Ez
Coldzera > Niko > Xantares > Simple
mechanical skill and ceiling simple is no doubt #1. but coldzera is just on another level with almost simples skill and waaaaay smarter player
s1mple and rain,u are right:D
s1mple and rain re fine answers, i would say niko but s1mple and rain are very skilled as well, your friends re dumb for sure
only newfags and amnesiacs disagree
overall s1mple. he can awp, rifle and pistol at the same time better than anyone else.
