Top 10 PEAKED players
 | 
African Union MrAfricanManThankYou 
Top 10 players of peaked players, this is not an overall best of all time list. But more so, if we were to take everbody's peak performance, who would be considered the best, at their PEAKS. 1. s1mple 2. coldzera 3. shox 4. olofmeister 5. NiKo 6. Snax 7. GeT_RiGhT 8. KennyS 9. flusha 10. GuardiaN What you think?
2019-01-20 18:41
0/10
2019-01-20 18:42
better list 1. s1mple 2. kennyS 3. GTR 4. olof 5. shox/flusha 6. flusha/shox 7. niko 8. f0rest 9. Guardian 10. snax 11. cold (aim isn't as good as the people listed above, but he makes up for it in positioning and good at trade fragging (smart baiting)

2019-01-20 18:42
A notable miss but I don't believe he would deserve to be on the list above anyone else.
2019-01-20 18:43
he defintly should, when he was 2 in 2013 he arguably had higher peaks then get right, he just had way more valleys as well.

Then surely his 20th, two 3rd places, 5th place and maybe 1 or 2 in vain for sure.
2019-01-20 18:46
??? I'm sorry, but you cannot argue that device is more mechanically skilled than any of the above. Certainly not at their peaks. Device's play style allows him to be one of the best in his position. But he has never been the best in his position. The above list is of players at their PEAKS would destroy anybody. Device in a 1v1 vs any of them in their peak, where he isn't holding an angle, would be rekt.

Why are we delusional? Never mentioned him being a goat. I just questioned why he didn't appear on this list, didn't point why he didn't get the number 1 spot or something like that. Try to actually read my sentence before commenting, that will eventually make you sound smarter.

He didn’t appear on the list because he isn’t one of the greatest of all times. He is not better than those peaked players. Just because you love him doesn’t mean that he is a god

2019-01-20 19:24
He has never been more mechanically skilled than any player on this list. He's a smart player, but that's about it.
2019-01-20 19:25
youre talking about flushas peak? dont you remeber what kind of god he was? certainly his peak was better than coldzera
2019-01-20 19:27
Nope. Coldzera was the best player in the world for 2 years straight in more competitive eras. Being the #1 skilled player in 2017 is far more impressive than #2/#1 in 2014. And even just looking at their mechanical skill and peaks, Cold is the superior player.
2019-01-20 19:30
lamo well clearly youre a waste of time when if you think HLTV top 20 is a reliable source for whos better
2019-01-20 19:30
You're moronic as shit if you think Cold wasn't #1 in 2016 or in 2017 you daft cunt. Not a single moron would tell you otherwise. Next you'll tell me GTR wasn't the best player in 2013 because HLTV said he was, Flusha has literally never been more skilled than ANY player on this list.
2019-01-20 19:34

2019-01-20 19:03
Is this their peak historically or currently? Historically, Olofmeister, Guardian, KennyS, S1mple, niko and f0rest must be high up, although i don;t know how to order them. Coldzera definetly NOT on the top 10, he was consistently solid and ofc the best player but individually he isnt the best so when niko for example is on form much better then him. Niko is actually as good as s1mple peaked. Maybe even kenny gets number 1 with his 2014? As we aren't counting consistency, although it's still impressive how consistently good guardian can be while still not beingat the insane flickshot 2015

2019-01-20 19:29
Cold won almost singlehandly the colombus major when no one in EU or NA even knew his name, kenny and sasha was always been overtalked in scenario and do not have half of cold achievements, rating 2.0 isnt that especial in cs. Observation: In a world with falleN's skills and gamesense/igling peaked, kennys is a joke as player and awper

>had community donate thousands of dollars for them to go to tournaments >playoffs at a couple majors >almost beat navi in cluj "no one knew them" has fallen or cold dropped a 50 bomb against the greatest team of all time? exactly, no.
2019-02-01 06:40
Brazilian community donated the majority of the value and making major's playoff don't turn them relevant unless you're american or european. Take winstrike as example. The best team of all time is luminosity/SK 2016/2017.
2019-02-01 07:05
The “best team of all time” >winning 3 tournaments that were relevant in 2016 >worst year of cs > no major at krakow which was gifted to them
2019-02-01 17:27
I know it's hard to accept because north american and european ego is so huge even though being european. "Worst year of cs"? The same old excuse. You have to feel lucky because immorts lose krakow's major in datails. Stop being angry at brazilians just because they're better than you (your country or the team you cheer) in cs.

1.s1mple 2.KennyS 3.olofm 4.GeT_RiGhT 5.NiKo
2019-01-20 19:34
You cant just put a random order without even thinking about it 1. s1mple 2. kennyS 3. GTR 4. f0rest (everyone just forgot about his insane peak because of GTR, lol) Those 4 are WAY ahead of others in terms of peak, then it gets really close between other players 5. shox 6. NiKo (there is huge difference between him and cold, coldzera was better player but NiKo had, and recently once again has, to carry the shit out of him which results in him having higher peaks throughout his career) 7. coldzera 8. olofmeister 9. fer (overshadowed by coldzera) 10. krimz (spear-headed the dawn of fnatics era but took a step back in 2015.. then he came to high level stardom at the end of 2017-early 2018 but it didnt last very long.. he would have been ranked much higher if it would last longer) There are players that may be greater or consistently better but without such a high peaks. Honorable mentions would go to GuardiaN (the closest one to breaking into the top10 imo), flusha, Snax, device and probably rain (only 2nd half of 2017, was overshadowed by NiKo), not in any particular order
2019-01-20 21:35

1. s1mple 2. GTR 3. Olof 4. Shox 5. Cold 6. Kenny 7. F0rest 8. GuardiaN 9. Snax 10. Fallen I dont think NiKo has even hit his peak yet, until his form dips noticeably we can't actually say he's peaked. Right now I think he can still improve
2019-02-01 06:08
Same as s1mple.
2019-02-01 06:20
actually s1mple has peaked. He has better stats than he did in Liquid but in between he had a pocket where his performance wasnt the super godly level it normally was. His stats now are a bit padded since he's in a team that's higher ranked so naturally gets higher seeds at events and gets weaker draws. Even if he hasn't peaked he's so far ahead the only person with any chance of rivaling him is NiKo or if ZywOo, ISSAA, or one of the slew of NA talents in MDL becomes the next Swag but on a different level (oBo or TenZ possibly but unlikely) hits a super high spot, then he won't be beaten for a long ass time
2019-02-01 06:32
He is still getting better. Making him haven't peaked. He's peaked as the best player. But he still can get better. Maybe not aim but consistency
2019-02-01 06:33
I dont get how his stats can be padded when his average at LAN is 1.24 and it stays at 1.24 against the top 10
2019-02-01 17:34
I don't mean it as padded since a lot of it is him just all out fragging even if the rest of his team is playing shit but he gets some padding in earlier matches in some events. Flamie imo gets majority of it. Not trying to say he's an eco fragger or anything but he gets much more room on fragging than in Liquid since NaVi really only have Electronic near his level which is why he has such high stats. It's not that it's padded it's just from him hard carrying

kenny is definetly top3. HE DOMINATED the fucking scene with bad teammates in 2014-2015

f0rest has 14 years peak and u didn't mention him?-
2019-02-01 07:07
S1mple hasnt peaked yet tbf, I think hi might still do better, he has a good amount of years ahead of him. If he does tho, the list wont change much since its only really a competition beetwen s1mple and TENZKI at that point...
2019-02-01 07:08
i believe guardian of his peak performance could argue with s1mple about the first place

I don't really understand the point of topics like this because people only watch at "star players". Honestly? I would prefer to have xyp9x in my team instead of 2 of any of those star players. Xyp9x is the kind of player who can win a loosing game by himself but people don't put him in lists like this because dev1ce has better rating. But I agree with s1mple beeing #1 in this ranking. I hate him but gotta admit, that guy is sick. He's the best player I ever seen and I watch CS since Pentagram G-shock times. For example - Device or Coldzera are stars when their team is winning. S1mple is always the star.
