imo it is between device cold and flusha
Csgo hasn’t been out long enough for their to be a real goat, wait a few years for some players to retire so we can get a good grasps on it
f0rest it's obvious man , he was a goat at 1.6 and still at cs go
Idk atm but im sure S1mple will become the goat all he needs is a major. He has the skill to be the goat all he needs now is the major trophy
And no, its not recency bias.
Also: Fuck F0rest
People who say s1mple are mistaking having the highest peak with being the greatest of all time, f0rest has been one of the very best players on both 1.6 and GO, winning majors in both versions, and has been at the top for over 10 years.
s1mple had the best year (in terms of individual performance) anyone ever had in 2018 but that doesn't mean he's the GOAT, he never won a major, didn't even win that many tournaments and even played poorly in the only major final that he played.
Also some might think that no one cares about that anymore, but let's not forget he's a former cheater and got banned by ESL at the beginning of his career, he was insanely lucky that VAC didn't catch his cheat and only the ESL wire did, but otherwise he wouldn't even have had a career at all. I don't know if an ex-cheater can be the GOAT, even if he doesn't cheat anymore. Regardless, that, along with other controversies (Sieg heil...) will always tarnish his legacy.
TLDR: s1mple is the most skilled player, f0rest is the GOAT.
...and even more obviously that NOT s0mple.
f0rest and GTR = overrated and not even close to goat, delusional NIP fangirls ))
