NiKo - at his best comparable to s1mple and Zywoo however with proven IGL ability
Ofc its captain. Brain wins battles and so called star players are just puppets.
I agree, to some extent. There's more to it than you described but you made a very good point.
there is no other team in the world like NaVi that would transcend the time and pass the experience to the new generation. not a single one. Zeus can be easily the GOAT
F0rest is the real GOAT. Unlike GeT_RiGhT, he has kept his consistensy over the years.
most likely the case.
its very hard to say who really is the goat but gla1ve and f0rest are both up there, and no matter how good s1mple and zywoo have been in the last years they are nowhere near goat status.
its device and no one comes close
any of them could be the goat
but to me the list is:
1/2.cold 2 major 2 mvp 2 top1 or
2/1.device 4 major 2 mvp but no top1 5 top10 tho
3/4.Olof/flusha 3 majors 1 mvp,but olof has 1 hltv top1,but its a tie to me
5.Gla1ve igl of one of the greatest teams of cs history,but no so skilled as the players above(aim wise)
6.Get Right 1 major,2 top1 and was the star with f0rest of the legendary nip streak
7.F0rest Below get bcz he doesn't have top1
this list can be different to any1 and is understandable to disagree with it,since all players listed are legends of the game
Putting gla1ve in here is just too edgy. No reason why gla1ve would be higher in turms of being considered as a GOAT than dev1ce.
I would take zywoo or s1mple rather then gla1ve at any day of the month.
we already saw a showmatch between fraggers and igls and guess what...fraggers won.
good igls are useless without good players and other way around. the thing that gla1ve is an igl doesnt mean that he was is important than his team mates...
I'd rather see some shit major with s1mple doing s1mple things and some sick awp shots by zhywo or kenny than seeing astralis winning all of them by playing as a team.
Actually there cannot be a "GOAT", subjectively speaking. I made a topic expressing why this is the case.
You making a topic irking opinions to then talk about an absolute makes the topic counterintuitive entirely.
Your opinion is respected, however.
Have a good day.
gla1ve, dev1ce, s1mple, f0rest, flusha
basically these are the top 5, choose your own flavor
Wait till end of next year, zywoo will have 3 HLTV top1s and easy GOAT,who cares about majors.
