 | 
Denmark SillyBillyN1664 
Who you think are the most expenisve players rn? I think 1.s1mple 2. Niko 3. Electronic 4. Baitzera 5. Zywoo/twiztzz I think this players would be the most expensive because they are INSANE and YOUNG Guardian and f0rest are insane too but kinda old so they are not much future proof. Toughts?

Their price is whatever their org thinks they are, being young has no relevance to their future prowess, they could get worse.
2019-01-30 23:16
But still is less risk for orgs to buy young talented players than GOATs of the game but washed up
2019-01-30 23:22
You forgot the fame of player in your reasoning. Fame on what org can negotiate price of sponsorship and sell goodies.

+1 A washed up but super famous and loved player like scream will make more earnings for his org than a good player. Exposure and stuff.

Yeah, Because single topics on HLTV matters He has around 250k likes on FB and around 700k followers on twitch. Those are impressive numbers for someone who after being kicked from G2 didn't do really anything

orgs just set the buyout to what they want. if they dont want their players to leave, they set it high..
2019-01-31 09:28
Why NiKo price would be high? Not sure his fan base worth his choking talent and his toxicity.
2019-01-30 23:23
Cuz he the 2nd best player, he can awp and be an "igl"
2019-01-30 23:24
2nd best player? In what ranking?
2019-01-30 23:25
3rd*
2019-01-30 23:26
So according to this he doesn't deserve the 2nd spot in your list.
2019-01-30 23:27
Just stfu you baiting Niko > device everyday
2019-01-30 23:29
Who is the 2nd best player then?
2019-01-30 23:41
S1mple, and HUNDEN is number one
2019-01-30 23:48
So according to this NiKo still didn't deserve the second spot.

They are biased, but not towards device himself, but towards STATS. I mean we're talking about the best players. People can tell already when watching players play. It's just obvious to see who's good who's not based on their play. We just can tell it.
2019-01-31 10:51
Speaking of journalists, even Thorin said that device would likely not be as good as he is, if he was thrown into situations like Niko was in mouz or S1mple is in navi. Device is the best fit for astralis, but he can't be a super hard carry, which makes him less valuable for other teams. You could put the other two into any team and they would improve them instantly.
2019-01-31 09:05
Do you mean Thorin, the analyst that good he manage to be wrong every single time to a point tournament desk don't want him anymore? Or another one?
2019-01-31 09:08
I mean the guy who is the most well-known and most accomplished CS:GO journalist. Also, you have to be incredibly stupid if you actually think that he's not invited to tournaments anymore, or if you think that Anders is a better analyst than Ynk or SpunJ or SGares, because he got more predictions correctly.
2019-01-31 09:17
Have you any idea what journalist means?
2019-01-31 09:37
Have you? Journalism is not all about investigative journalism. Thorin is a columnist first and an analyst second. Just because he's not covering roster moves, it doesn't mean that he's not a journalist.
2019-01-31 11:13
Who said it is all about investigation?
2019-01-31 12:25
journalist is not the same as analyst wtf. thoring is not a journalist

s1mple is godlike aimer, and his rections are the best at pro scene also players who can be hybrid worth much more than regular riflers or awpers
2019-01-30 23:47
You know that the addition of the young guy you called "another aimer" is the reason why Na'Vi came back to tier 1, right ?
2019-01-30 23:49

zeus is the reason idiot do you think navi with seized instead of zeus but with electronic would be tier1? XDD

Na'Vi weren't doing shit before they added electronic, even with Zeus.
2019-01-30 23:54

Sweden NI99ER 
ofc they didn't cause zeus was playing only 1 month with NaVi and they haven't synergy yet and after electronic addiction they also were sucking and elec was one of the worst players first 2-3 months now you understand my point?
2019-01-30 23:56
>2-3 months >links one single bad match yeah
2019-01-31 12:55
so player with great raw skill, insane ability to hold sites and the best m4a4 player is worth less tha washed up igl? i wonder why

The whole team make their success. Buying only 1 player would be retarded
2019-01-30 23:47
Buying any of them would be a good idea. Any of them could improve any other team

probably you're wrong my friend, Astralis's strength comes from teamwork, the only player I think would be a good addition on any team would be the xyp9
2019-01-31 13:13
Teamwork is a considerable strength of theirs. Absolutely. But I still stand by my statement. Individually, they're all great.

Iirc, GuardiaN said that FaZe was his last team. He just wanted to win a major and then he retires.

he never will win tho, at least not with niko igl and adren

He said FaZe will be his last team probably but he never said he is going to retire after winning a major...
2019-01-31 12:10
It was leaked on Seized's stream where a steam chat with GuardiaN was visible while Seized was shift-tabbed. I'm sure you can find it, of course GuardiaN could also have been joking.
2019-01-31 12:31
#95
 | 
Slovakia Denysis 
Yeah, I found it, thank you. I didn't know about it until now. As I know GuardiaN from his stream and how he is talking with friends on other streams, he was probably joking. But still, if he wins a major toward the end of the year it could be good timing to end the career, but ending career after a major at the start of the year would be silly.
2019-01-31 12:47
Yeah, would suck to see him retire though, over the past year all my favorite players and teams retired or fell into irrelevancy. NEO, Pasha, Marik, Shox, and it's a matter of time for Edward. I hope GuardiaN sticks around, he's my favorite player now.
2019-01-31 14:17

 | 
Slovakia Denysis 
Well, I think there is hope for shox if he will end with being IGL. But sooner or later every player - every legend has to end, and with GuardiaN ending his career, it will probably also be my end with watching competitive CS. Maybe I will keep watching it for 1 more year but I don't think there will be anything or anyone for me to stay. He brought me to watch it and he will also take me out of this CS and HLTV madness :D
2019-01-31 14:39
Same here, unless the old VP and FlipSid3 guys come back, I might be out too. n0thing in coL gives me hope though, I always liked watching him.

Gla1ve could be the most expensive player if you consider the potential he could bring to any top team.
2019-01-31 09:52
+1, he is the reason astralis succeed
2019-01-31 10:02
he is a huge factor yes, but without dupreeh, who got his entry role back from kjaerbye and device playing very good this year, they wouldnt have won anything. double d combo, gla1ve mastermind, magisk spray god and xpy9x clutchminister are all huge factors, not only gla1ve take one out of them and they wouldnt be no.1

NA players are probably more expensive than most european/cis players... Not because they are better, but because NA has bigger market/more sponsors etc. Like stewie was valued for 2 million while faze bought niko for 500k. Strange but it is how it is.

The most expensive players have to be all Astralis players and coach, since they won't break up. s1mple and electronic, since it would be a catalyst for Na'Vi's death as a competitive orgin CS:GO. All of FaZe players, since FaZe are the guys who only buy players, really. But, I mean, if Snax costed $300k, the others would go in millions...

+1 The organisations and players are monetarily different, but it's still the same contractual obligations, etc... The value is often misconstrued with contractual obligations and the organisations, it's a lot like football players in that regard.
