Lol, do you seriously consider fucking HLTV ranking a proper one for this? :D If you really think that HLTVs ranking says who was Xth BEST player of a year then you should quit following its ranking. NiKo was a top3 player on an individual basis in 2016, 2017 and 2018 and based on players' ability kennyS was better than flusha every single year but 2013 (in the years they were both good ofc) :D The thing with HLTVs ranking that it doesnt meassure this and then people like you believe that f.e. rain was 4th BEST player of 2017 or flusha being so high almost every single year. Ive got some news for you, flushas placing in 2014 happened only due to his form prior to krimz and olof joining fnatic and then his consistency even tho he was like their 3rd best player since their new lineup. On the other hand, the biggest joke by far was his 2016 placing, he wasnt even close to that spot, he more than likely didnt even deserve a top20 mention that year. Thats how this ranking works, it rewards consistency in a winning/contending team, just look at 2018s Xyp9x, gla1ve and Magisk, even dupreehs ranking is boosted because of that.
