I like fer 1st 2017 very much aswell and shox 1st half 2016 too (even if shox is a little bitch he was still great player)
Shox second part of 2013, early 2014 ( came very close to this form in 2016 ) is imo the most skilled player out of anyone at their peaks, and a top 3 player overall out of anyone's peak. His ceiling isnt outdated as we saw in 2016 where the level of competition was higher than in 2013/ 14 and in 2016 when he peaked he was considered the best player in the world.
S1mple 2018, just a complete player with every weapon, insane reflex, clutching, decision making aim...
Kennys late 2014- Best player with the awp of all time at his peak, not only csgo but source and 1.6 too. This awping was simply a class above.
Those 3 for me
imo, olof and fnatic were a much more dominant team but s1mple is simply much better than olof as an individual player. I think s1mple won't be the best next year as we get more and more of these insane players and I really do think they get better with each player.
In terms of performance:
In terms of highest skill peak:
In terms of ability to exploit OP weapons:
S1mple has the highest skill ceiling out of these players.
I think it's gotta be shox. The guy was absolutely insane 2013/14 and in 2016 during his peak.
Surprised to see nobody mentioning NiKo. When he's on his best form he can easily drop 30 and even 40 bombs
