Navi hasnt really played anything this year after the major though.
2019-06-16 02:42
except for 3 blast tourneys (which they fucked up with epl qualifier) and their only trophy was sl s7
2019-06-16 02:43
Yep, but in total maps played its not many. I think sl s7 would be over 50% of maps.

Drunk american found. He still has the best rating at big events this year (1.33), so how hasn't he proven himself?
2019-06-16 10:13
NaVi hasn't attended an event since Shanghai like 2 months ago. For the same reason Astralis isn't #1 until they prove themselves, imo he needs to prove himself again at big events.

I'm not talking about rating, I'm talking about mechanical skill, Electronic is very skilled, probably should've put electronic above NAF but he's been very inactive due to Na'Vi not playing many games in the last while. He's also less of a mechanically skilled player & more of a good positioning/game sense/crosshair placement player (similar to NAF which is why I should've put him above NAF) (To be completely honest I kinda forgot about him & was too lazy to reorganize things)

2019-06-16 02:45
It's hard to tell because of the extensive damage BLAST Pro Series has done to the scene, so I don't think it's even possible to make the real top 5, but I have a few things to note. 1. s1mple never fell off and still remains the best player in the world. He has remained the best for a year now and ZywOo doesn't magically become better just because he is playing more this month. You have to do more than that to take the throne from the best player of all time. 2. EliGE has proven, recently, to be the best Liquid player. Their core is very skilled but EliGE has, lately, shown better capabilities and is currently their best player (his 35 bomb against Furia in Dallas is a perfect example). This might change but if this list is in the present time, EliGE has to be above NAF and Twistzz. 3. Astralis has been very inactive but at ECS, device was the only really good player on their team. He literally got an EVP even though he was eliminated in groups, which is a testament to his capabilities. A case could be made that he is a top 5 player right now, but it's hard to tell with their inactivity. He's worth at least considering. 4. sergej is a very good player, and a crucial reason that ENCE has had such fantastic results, but in naming the best players right now, it would be reasonable to claim other, less successful players are better than him (i.e. device). His impact is very high but do we really think he's better than the likes of electronic, device, Magisk, NAF, Twistzz, or NiKo? Because I don't think he is. 5. Electronic and Magisk are potential top 5 players, but due to their inactivity and the power of Liquid right now, the Liquid trio of EliGE, Twistzz, and NAF are all probably better than them. 6. Twistzz and NAF are basically equally strong at this point IMO, and their equal ratings right now support that. Keeping that in mind, it's basically impossible to have 1 without the other. Keeping these in mind, my top 5 is: 1. s1mple 2. ZywOo 3. EliGE 4. Twistzz 5. NAF
2019-06-15 18:41
No way Twistzz couldn't be at top5 since he is way too inconsistent, NAF have very inferior rating to electronic, but have achievements, But last year Electronic surpass dupreeh with no MVP and less trophies

I don't think Elige is the best player on Liquid skill wise, yes Elige has a higher rating but if you were going off of that then you'd put NAF above Twistzz (which btw going off rating, bad idea for figuring out skill as rating is more to determine how valuable the player is to the team, if you go off of rating Jame is a top 5 player on LAN in 2019, Edward is equal to Olof etc)
2019-06-15 19:42
I'm not exactly going off rating to determine that EliGE is the best Liquid player though. He's had a ton of big games lately, and I used the game against Furia on Nuke where he dropped 35 kills as an example. Maybe he doesn't have the most skill, but he's putting up the numbers and banging out everyone. I don't like comparing skill though, I like comparing capability and impact. Skill can be deceptive because teams like FaZe, NiP, or TyLoo that have high skill don't really show it. So if you think about it, the fact that EliGE doesn't have the most skill on the team doesn't matter (if anything it only says that Liquid can get better). He's still the best player right now.

I still disagree, as far as mechanical skill twistzz takes it, if we're not talking about mechanical skill & more game sense, crosshair placement, positioning etc then NAF takes it for me, overall it's really really damn close for Liquid as all 3 of them are insanely good players & really close to eachother (hence all 3 of them getting MVPs in 2019 already), all of them can definitely be in the top 5, we'll have to see which of them are in the top 5 at the end of the year
2019-06-16 01:40
Yeah it is kinda uncanny how close they all are to each other. EliGE was the best at DH Dallas, with Twistzz nearly as good, but I wouldn't be surprised if NAF gets the MVP at the EPL finals if they win it. It's really impressive and great to see.

yea, I can see them all having equal amounts of MVPs by the end of the year, if they alternate (constantly going NAF then Twistzz then Elige) that would be most entertaining in my opinion
2019-06-16 02:23
NAF just dropped 50 kills in a dominant bo3 vs Spirit (next was EliGE with 36). It could happen...
2019-06-16 02:25
Elige is more aggressive and more successful. He is better even with a tougher role.
2019-06-16 23:48
I still think niko has to be up there somewhere, just because of the quantity of maps at starseries I think I would put electronic above naf. I would also out device up there still, I would have elige as the only liquid player in the top 3, I think there success as a team is making there individuals a bit overrated, I dont think its reasonable to think that when liquid plays either faze, or astralis that niko and device will be the 4th best player in the server. I would say 1. s1mple 2.zywoo 3.device 4.niko 5.elige. I still think when faze or astralis play liquid they have the best player in the server.
2019-06-16 05:37
Yeah you’re right. The problem with NiKo is that he didn’t play as well as he normally did at DH Dallas, since NEO had him doing different stuff. But I think it’s still fair to say he’s the 4th best at this point.
2019-06-16 14:26
Yeah but you seem to forget the time NiKo carried FaZe while being the IGL and that was since the start of the year. This 1 month slump since NEO joined isn't the reason for him to be any lower than top 2. If it continues like this than sure. However if we count only this month than yeah I agree...

In terms of aim, the most mechanically skilled players are s1mple, niko, twistzz and zywoo at the moment. The 5th could be anyone. XANTARES maybe. He's an aim freak who doesn't succeed more because his game sense is terrible.
2019-06-16 04:24
0/8, s1mple hasn’t done shit this year, no.4 at most
2019-06-16 05:12
He set the record for highest KD differentiel at a big event and had a 1.43 rating across 19 maps. His worst tournament is 1.18 rating, and it was all bo1s. His rating at his worst event is the same as eliges average. Which 3, maybe more players are better then s1mple in 2019. If your gonna say he has no maps played, at big events he has played 40 maps, thats the same as zywoo, and 4 less then elige. I don't want to hear your response as I want to keep my brain cells.
2019-06-16 05:51

people always say that but that's objectively not true. electronic was top 5 last year and a cs team doesn't need everyone to be extremely skilled to be good, it's chemistry and playing the proper role but i guess you nova s1mple dick rider can't understand that

1. S1mple He is still ridiculous, ya he hasn't played a ton of maps but one of those was SLTV 7 which had a ton of maps, and he played all good teams in the playoffs, he also still literally hasnt had a bad event since IEM Katowice 2017. 2. Zywoo Hes closer to first then he is to third, and that is the first time anyone has been able to say that in a long time, but he was also mediocre at the major, and below his normal level at starseries season 7, he doesnt have the resume of consistency that s1mple has. 3.Device Device has lowkey been nuts this year, he had an off tournament at blast Miami, but other then that he has been lights out, and he is playing in harder circumstances then last year. (unless your a cretin who said device was better then s1mple because his teammates steal his kills while s1mples dont, then you have to explain how much worse device got, howcome he isnt dropping 1.4 ratings becasue his team is worse now.) 4. Niko Hes just nuts, no real bad lan events, he won an MVP, hes not really dropped of, he has also been playing in a super dysfunctional team, its largely his fault the team is dysfunctional but that doesn't take away his ability as a csgo player. 5. Electronic is hard to place because he was absolutely insane for SLTV 7, but only good without being great for everything else, meanwhile people like elige are more consistent tournament to tournament, but elige doesn't have electronics peak, they are very close.

Here are the top 3 Players based on Winrate, if anyone cares for actual data: twitter.com/GRIDinsights/status/11401973..

How does team winrate represent individual performance?

It not, it is their personal winrate which in most cases is also the Team's winrate. It is only not if one of the Players changes Teams.
