Cold also practiced 12 hours a day and didn't stream for clout.
That guy put in RIDICULOUS effort and deserved (by far) both ranks. That dude will always be a legend of this game, like GTR.
In professional sports comparisons, AWPers are the scoring the TDs, the forwards netting the most goals, the 4th up to bat to knock in the grand slam...
To also mention, NEO in 2011, GTR in 2013/14, Cold in 2016/17... Like, I don't like the OP argument at all.
Even this year, only the Top 3/10 are AWPers. 4-10 are riflers. It's a silly argument.
