Ah my mistake for the 1.09 rating, I used top 20 BE in the filter thinking it was the filter for top 20 player rather than the events themselves
What would you consider a 'suitable' map count then? if you go below 50 then sergej is suddenly one of the best players in the world.
Again as for the zeus and styko thing I misread the filter, but my point still stands, they would be still considered some of the best individual players in the world, which they aren't. And it is close they would be 28th and 29th respectively.
EliGe did bad the start of the year, Cerq, ZywOo, valde, tabseN all did individually better than him throughout the year. ZyWOo has one of the highest ratings currently, 1.44 and the only reason it's lower on BE is because he hasn't gone to any yet, but he still retains a 1.5+ rating at LAN so it's not as if he's an onliner like XANTARES, where his form dips fairly significantly while at LAN.
Just because certain players weren't on the list due to their evps etc. doesn't mean they wont be this year. EliGe shouldn't have been that high on the list that year too lmao, stewie did better that year as an individual (despite C9 still being a bit shit with n0thing and shroud).
valde has a 1.1 rating, while also having a relatively dogshit team around him. IMO he deserves a spot more than EliGe
ZyWOo has a 1.52 rating at LAN, while he is facing worse opponents, his team certainly isnt helping him out too much. He deserves it way more than EliGe
tabseN has a team is far worse than Liquid yet his rating is still the same as EliGe. He deserves it proabably as much as EliGe
The only reason I think Xyp9x should even be in the top 20 is because of his teamplay, if he was on any other team I doubt he would make the top 20.
Once again, the players I listed that you dispute have nobody to pick them up a few maps when they're doing shit and pad them stats a little bit (other than the NRG trio). tabseN is probably the only good player on BIG, Valde and Kjaerbye are the only good players on North and even still Kjaerbye isnt doing too hot recently, and ZyWOo is currently solo carrying France. EliGe in Sept 2018 onwards is a top 20 player. 2018 as a whole EliGe isn't a top 20 player he got carried by 2 top 10 players, just like how I think Xyp9x should be very low on the list, because he got carried by his teammates.
EliGe is like the opposite of flamie; flamie was amazing at Boston and for the first few months of 2018, in the later months of 2018 he did shit, EliGe did shit in the first few months of 2018 but in the later months did very well. I consider neither to be top 20 worthy because of this, if the awards were for best half year, then EliGe would be a top 20 2/2 2018 and flamie would be a top 20 1/2 2018 player, but its not. Take into account the entire year, not just the later months where EliGe got his form back.
