Decent list, but zywoo wont be higher than device, just put that away
dev1ce - 3 big events ( 1 MAJIOR )
Astralis 1 major?
device 2 majors*
2 major for device * 1 major mvp
I don't think s1mple will be number 1 2019 because of how many events Na'Vi missed, but at the same time I still don't think anyone is better than him, or has come close to his 2018 performance so it's pretty unfortunate.
you need to look all 12 months so for me it should be:
this is really tough but assuming things as of now
1. s1mple (highest rating, even his worst performances aren’t horrible by any means and isn’t fully padded by 4 teammates always flashing for him and dropping him an awp, tho besides zywoo he does get the most support from his teammates tbf)
2 ZywOO (best balance between maps played and rating, has to carry vitality harder than s1mple and electronic carrying navi in 2018. but his lows are really bad and worse than s1mples. take the match vs ence at berlin for example. fully understandable if zywoo>s1mple tho)
3. EliGE (same story as device last year kinda, most mvps won this year so far, great impact and consistent even in liquids lows like at malmo and the major)
4. device (consistent, shows up big at the most important events and still really good)
5. electronic (underrated as fuck, he is easily top 5. wouldn’t be surprised if he’s above device, i would’ve put him above but i’m being reasonable. one of the best ct players in the game and he’s just a monster with rifles in general)
honorable mentions - magisk (everyone above is better this year so far), jame (a lot of this year he’s played at tier 2 events), brehze (way too krieg reliant) and naf (lately he’s been really hit and miss)
if s0mple has amazing end of the year it wil be him
if s1mple gets 2more mvp
and big events
i quess easy for him
but if not...mby zywho,or dev1 or elige
but more likely they the g0d himself s1
1)ZywOo - Im not even sure how is this a discussion honestly,mvps,rating,kpr,consistency all goes to him + he has titles
2)ELiGE - again not sure how this is a debate
3)s1mple - probably s1mple because he is s1mple,but dev1ce can get it cuz s1mple has won jackshit this year and has dropped for 2-3 months
4)dev1ce - can be #3 due to major mvp depends on rest of the year
so I think it will be s1mple again this year. they will probably win an event this year so s1mple gets another mvp.
s1mple and zywoo will get #1 or #2
device #3 after liquid is falling down
and elige #3
imo the best top20 we ever had. last year was only s1mple and device on top
EliGE was a favourite but with current Liquid dev1ce will take the crown, he has been high up on the list for many years and finally he deserves it, great stats, 2 majors with 1 MVP, many EVP, MVP at Malmo and many trophies to come.
s1mple great but not enough team achievements, ZywOo great but has to carry a team of bots so he will get top 3 but not nr 1
s1mple will be T1 with this new team.
Device will get 2nd place because of the major and rating and Zywoo will be 3rd.
Honorable mentions (very possible but 20 spots is very small and these followings may make their way through the list above)
Still, even without the list, I think I'll get at least 15 of 20 of the list, thoughts?
haven't really thought about it that much and things call change, we have 3 months left
1.brehze the rest dont matter
It's either dev1ce or Zywoo
Device/Elige but mostly Device not because he's more skilled but he's performing better because
the team around him is performing very well too.
why is electronic not in the conversation, he has better stats than Elige for example
The first place will be ZywOo 100% u can cry but at the end we will see ..... them 2 S1mple 3 Elige 4 Device 5 Eletronic ......
what spot do you think fer?
S1mple fanboy, but really I think it should go to Zywoo. Plays just as smart and is just as skilled s s1mple, but played more maps and tournament while having to carry a way worse team.
It should be a race between Elige and Zywoo. s1mple missed too many events this year with Na'Vi doing fuck all. device can come up if he has a big last 3 months, but I think Magisk was carrying Astralis too much this year for him to get number 1.
If s1mple will rekt the dreamhack masters, mb he can enter top5, otherwise not even in top10 . elige, zywoo, device top3.
If s1mple performs as good as in 2018 he has a chance to be top 1 again. But I'm pretty sure that device deserves it much more
So far this year, I'd say Elige is #1
S1mple highest KD with fewest maps
ZywOo is far and away number 1.
I think this is the year Device does it since Liquid are falling off like a guy skydiving. If Astralis win Malmo and 1 or 2 other tournaments Device will be no 1
LOL. S1mple did shit this year.
Try brehze instead.
People are putting him top3? Delusional.
Dev1ce can't be top 1 anyway, Astralis dodged so many events and he was average when he didn't get mvp contrary to Elige and co
As a French fan I would love to see ZyWoo top 1 hltv, but to be realistic I'll sincerely say that device will be the greatest player of 2019, I mean he's too good in every events , he's a play maker and can do everything.
if zywho wins the best player of the year I’ll stop follow the pro scene... but I still have faith in humanity
elige the one who deserves it most, no doubt.
bros its still 2 months if s1mple is gonna drop a few 1,90 Ratings ez number 1
Why is Dev1ce even in the conversation? He.s a god damn BOT, more excuses than a politician, literal shit!
Not even a question, HUNDEN TOP 1, GOD AND GOAT! :)
Should be s1mple but in this type of rating he probably won't be.
But dev1ce won 2 majors this year already
If we talk about player performances and skill-wise, ZywOo and s1mple are way better than device, because he achieves titles by winning with his team, but he has won too many awards, so I guess he'll be number one this year. Yet, I don't think he deserved it, because like I said, skill-wise is ZywOo way better than device.
Dev1ce should be #1 this year. Elige 2nd and Zywoo third.
Did S1mple even win an event in 2019? Did he have any good performances against an actual top3 team?
S1mples cocksuckers on this site is the worst. He might be the most skilled player, but he didn't have a better year (so far) than any of the 3 others mentioned above.
And no, s0mple does not belong to this list.
Its not about what titles your team won its just stats because s1mple have all the time a positive score at finish line match by match he s stats are still no1 for 2019
Zywoo play against bots at start of 2019 and that s not relevant like play against top 20
if zywoo places in the top2 im gonna eat a boot
bump in next year please
There's still time, but as teams look right now it seems either device or S1mple will get the top spot.
Right now if the year would stop today s1mple and ZywOo wouldn't be top 1 or 2, they have only won 1 big event. Na'Vi won Starseries but there was no Liquid or Astralis and Vitality won ECS but there was no ENCE, Na'Vi or Liquid. Device and EliGe have won so many events this year (and MVPs) and their ratings are not that far behind s1mple or ZywOo.
Not saying I agree with this ofc because personally I think the award for best player of the year should go to the actual best player in the world, and clearly s1mple and ZywOo >>>>>>>>> Elige > Device.
ZywOo is #1 if not hltv is rigged and unfair vs French individuals.
They give s1mple #1 because of ratings but not same with French players.
zywoo should be nr 1 he has same maps as device but way better stats
I think twistzz will be ahead of elige, although elige has more MVPs, twistzz plays better and his KD is bigger than elige
Zywoo and S1mple deserves to be higher than Device. They both play in teams that are pretty much shit without them. I'm not saying Device is bad but he is boosted hard by his team mates.
Zywoo and S1mple put up almost same numbers as Device but without team mates even close to what Device have in Astralis.
If TL wins some more events , EliGE
If Astralis is really back then device
If Na'Vi starts to play god perform s1mple
But if it was already end, EliGE would be #1 ZywOo #2 s1mple #3 devve #4
