Can olof still be the GOAT after 2018?

Can olof still be the GOAT after 2018? After the year has ended, players like s1mple, coldzera and device will have outperformed him for 3 years in a row (2016, 2017 and 2018). GuardiaN and kennyS will in total have outperformed him in 4 years overall (2013, 2014, 2017 and 2018). It's will be tough to justify him as the GOAT.

already is the goat, and when na'vi most likely becomes #1 team with major win in london or poland it's gonna be official
2018-07-26 13:55
LOL NaVi will fall, they only rely on firepower... Mediocre utility usage and strats will get them on their knees surely s1mple might be strong individually but when he cant play in a team properly etc... meh he doesnt even have many event wins or anything, he just collects every NaVi's MVP because they are basically relying on his firepower

what are you even talking about, strat-wise na'vi is one of the most improved teams in the scene. your nick is karrigan_200iq and you talk about mediocre strats. karrigan in literally every pressured situation: "do what u like cuz u best players in world :)(:"
2018-07-26 14:00
NaVi is nowhere close to having star strats. s1mple is nowhere close to a goat. Wins,MVPs and numbers say clearly that the best player of CS:GO as a whole is still Christopher Alesund

that he didn't play at a time where scene was good. nip went all in on csgo and got huge advantage because of this but scene soon chased back.s1mple on the other hand were able to dominate when scene was packed.
2018-07-26 14:06
and now there is a good scene? all teams that very really good 2015-17 are broken right now LOL LG/SK/MiBR - making a good communication with NA players FaZe - stand-in issue, now getting back on the track with olof Fnatic - their best is gone EnVyUs/G2 - just broken lol, you see Liquid - only OK NA team C9 - dead cuz Snake2k and tarik Etc. Today's NaVi wouldnt beat 2016-17 LG/SK or late 2017 FaZe Clan, surely; same goes to Astralis

na'vi would fucking oblitirate late 2017 faze clan. i don't know how you can be blind to see how good this team has clicked since start of june. i've only see 2016 LG play at a similar level and Astralis on rare occassions. na'vi will dominate 2018.

Well doesn't really matter if the scene was good or not. He has achieved what he has achieved, and if someone doesn't have the same amount of wins/MvP's yet, it can't be beaten. Simple as that. If Caroline Wozniacki won 3 grand slams in a row with not much competition if we said Badminton was an all-new sport, someone with 2 grand slams in a way more competitive era later on will not become a GOAT on that basis - Caroline still has one more grand slam regardless. Otherwise the GOAT title would have as much merit as a bought badge from a souvenir store.
2018-08-11 14:07
Pure speculation. Useless when comparing stats. Stats are stats. Cheat was also shit and not as widespread back 2013 compared to today, which I honestly think is a big reason GR is having trouble.

GTR still great player . His struggling along with NiP . Its stupid to compare 2013 scene with todays scene . 2018's old guys had their prime in start of csgo and end of 1.6 . They played all the time woth best players , if u want to argue sk 2017 better than nip 2013 because scene was 2013 smaller its dumb . Now we can say 2017 scene is small and lower than now and cause that SK/MIBR SUCKS

How many years did s1mple,cold were in top 20? two How many years did olof were in top 20? four even if only cold and s1mple of them make it it this year,those will be 3 and 4.if olof also make it,it will be 3 and 5. how many events did s1mple and cold combined won in csgo < 20 how many events did olof won in csgo = 21

by that logic kennys and guardian > olof coz both have been 5 times in top 20 and that mean f0rest and get right >>>>>>>> olof f0rest and get right have been 4 times in top20 like olof and won everything in csgo AND cs 1.6

ya never said they were not GOATs. They are no clear number 1 GOAT in csgo. There are many like gtr,forest,olof,flusha,kennyS,guardian,cold,device etc. By this year end,s1mple,niko etc will also joins the list. They all are GOATs in csgo. ALL have some advantages and disadvantages for the claim. Maybe in 1or 2 years we willl get the clear number 1.

ya sure. but that doesn't remove olof from being one of the GOATs. Others playing well will just add them to GOAT list not remove olof. The topic of thread is that after cold and s1mple playing better than olof in recent years will make him non-GOAT.He will still be one of the GOATS like like markeloff or gtr or heaton in 1.6. He doesn't have to be the best among GOATs in 1.6 like Neo .

2018-07-27 14:18
I don't think that the GOAT of CS:GO should yet be assigned at all. In 1.6 f0rest and neo (among others) performed great one year after another. In CS:GO we had GeT_RiGhT dominating in the beginning, but after 2014 he has slowly lost his form. Olofmeister was amazing in 2015 and the beginning of 2016, but has only been good ever since. Coldzera was a beast in 2016 and 2017, but now in 2018 he is struggling compared to his earlier form. S1mple is having a blast in 2018, but it's his first year at the top, so too early to call him the GOAT either. Then there are players like device, who have been solid players most of the time, but rarely have been as dominating as the afformentioned players in their top form. I just think it would be stupid to choose the GOAT of CS:GO when there are no clear favourites, just a bias of one era over another. Everyone is obviously entitled to their own opinion, but I don't think there's yet a clear GOAT in CS:GO.

Olof has showed everything he has already.. It's not like he'll return to being anything close to a top 5 player anymore while players like device, s1mple, coldzera and kennyS for instance still have many years ahead of them.
2018-07-28 02:25
Anything is possible with the right mentality, but I do think you are probably right.
2018-07-28 12:52
Olof need only top get into the top 5 in 2018 to become the real GOAT, what is a small chance since he played not much and hasn't won much events this year. ;/] But people can't forget olof achievments: 2 graffitis iconic play from tec-9 major MVP 2 major champions Katowice, Cologne, Eleague, Starseries champion top 1 in 2015
