Underrated players (now and past)

Canada Emperor1e 
Presently: Oskar for sure, the most underrated AWP. RpK, he had a nuts clip yesterday but still he's generally underrated by most, especially considering he's 31 years old. SANJI from VP, plays the hard positions, if you watch his aim, it's crazy. XigN from Korea, another great player who's been fucked by his country's scene. lolipop21k, not sure he could be a star t1 player, but he's definitely better than his team rn and could probably grow a lot under good leadership. ISSAA, does a lot for his team and has sick mechanics, overshadowed by Mantuu and Valde. acoR, sick awper and amazing movement, but he's getting some recognition now. reiko, this pick is a bit of a gamble, but he's looked like the best player on HONORIS by far, STOMP is good, but reiko's mechanics are on another level, though he's very new to the scene and needs a lot of time to develop. Historically: Hyper, f0rest's aim with elemeNt's gamesense but was only around for 2 years sadly so he gets forgotten quite a lot. ScreaM (Swedish), mentor to a lot of top players (dsn, SpawN), he had amazing mechanics in his own right. VicoN, a great all-around player, was incredibly consistent on LAN with him being around the game since the first big tournaments. He could use the awp really well, but never got the recognition he deserved. Hyb, the first primary star awper in the game, he revolutionized the weapon in CS. Also, he was a great IGL who was a part of the NiP 2001 lineup, one of the most dominant teams in the game's history. Jungle, basically carried wNv, a Chinese team, to be the best team in the world for a small period of time. KK, a great Danish AWPer who seldom gets talked about. Roman R, one of the first great German players who made mouz great, was a secondary star to Johnny R. While praised, Johnny R and neo (german) were usually was considered the full star of that team and Roman was over shadowed by them. Stevenson (bl00dsh0t), Incredibly clutch NA player who in the early days was a sort of a clutch master for his team. He was on EG in one of the first iterations of their lineup and was leading in kills against teams like SK when he came in second at a major,CPL Summer 2005. (Canada represent lmao) What are your picks mens))?

rpk underrated?
2020-09-13 22:20
I think so. He’s gotten a lot of hate recently for being washed up but it’s quite clear that he’s still there and doing a lot for his team. His performance yesterday was a wake up call for that.
2020-09-13 22:27
+1 he's been overrated since his return in Vitality
2020-09-13 22:50
I assume you mean underrated
2020-09-14 00:46

Rain has to be one of the most underrated players right now. He entries more than pretty much anyone else in t1 cs, and doesn't even receive much utility support from his team like most entries do. He also plays a lot of anchor roles on CT side and frags pretty well in them.
2020-09-13 22:23
I agree, he’s stuck with the shitty roles in the team. FaZe is just bad right now and I agree they’re not giving rain the environment to play his best, same story with most of their other players as well.
2020-09-13 22:29
2020-09-14 05:39
You can call me crazy but from what I watched, basically Faze sacrifices him to do their plays. I've seen a lot he just being forced to open space or get information for faze
2020-09-14 06:15
Ikr ,niko doesn’t even utilize him right,like “u go to a site alone .if you kill someone we will come”Kinda strats lol
2020-09-14 06:16
Exactly lol
2020-09-14 06:21
+1 idk why people hate him
2020-09-17 09:50
2020-09-13 22:48
bodyy, very hard role in G2 and now he's outplaying people in T3-4, could be in a top t2 team to me
2020-09-13 22:53
I agree, bodyy isn’t a t1 player anymore but he could be a role player of a t2 team I believe.
2020-09-14 00:46
Heretics -xms +bodyy plz
2020-09-14 00:58
2020-09-14 00:48
He’s a great AWPer, but I don’t think he’s underrated as of late. He’s been a key part of BIG’s success in the past few months and he’s been given due credit.

I mean the Swedish ScreaM where the Belgian player took his name from. He played in NiP in 2002 and most notably in team9 and Matrix in 2003-2005.

Bsl was kinda underrated. Pronax was massively underrated, Fnatic were essentially using his stratbook until almost 2019. Although part of the golden5 I'd say luq was massively overshadowed by Taz, Neo, and kuben. Presently, I'd say zehn is underrated, his stats against Finnish teams are insane. As well as fox (Portuguese not Russian)
2020-09-14 01:00
BSL was a great OG igl. He’s overlooked a lot I think because elemeNt took over NoA and had great success but BSL really set up the foundation for that team. LUq was underrated but still relatively considered a great awper so he’s not one of the most underrated players but fair enough since he was so overshadowed. I completely agree with Zehn, he’s a beast. Fox is overrated by Portuguese fans an underrated by everyone else at the same time lmao
2020-09-14 02:17
i kinda miss face there tbh(flair checked i know:D) but still...he was probably the best solo site holder in 1.6 but was overlooked bcs of his team mates most of the time.

+1 face was a god
2020-09-14 01:01
Trace was in both of HLTVs 1.6 top 10s, so I think calling him underrated is a bit much. But when he was in SK with GTR, f0rest, DelpaN, then yeah in that context he was underrated because he was surrounded by bigger names.
2020-09-14 02:20
face dude. not trace:DDDD
2020-09-14 02:33
United Kingdom the_NDR
Face was a Swedish player who I'm pretty sure had retired by the time trace was playing
2020-09-14 03:05
I’m dumb. Idk why I said Trace LMFAO, their names are similar. I meant Face xD The info I gave goes for Face too haha.
2020-09-14 05:23
TabseN was underrated. But then Big became #1
2020-09-14 02:21
2020-09-14 16:23
I completely agree, especially in 2017-2018
2020-09-14 16:26
People like Smooya were stealing the spotlight just because he was a UK player on a top team.

Your opinion shows why they are underrated
2020-09-15 19:27
2020-09-15 20:52
ChrisJ bring a lot to his team, Olof is technically inactive, but FaZe’s results since his absence really show Olof’s worth on the team.

2020-09-14 05:24
First team to get 0-16 at a major and first team to go 0-10 in a blast pro =/= underrated
2020-09-14 06:26
CyderX he is basically like gla1ve but 18yo
2020-09-14 05:26
I don’t know a lot about that player or his team so I can’t comment
2020-09-14 05:27
Very young team 17,18,19,19,20 yo players without even a coach but they play smart fot these ages
2020-09-14 05:58
ethan is still underrated imo, cerq and brehze are usually the hot players of eg but ethan is doing just as well as they are, especially considering his roles brehze and cerq gets the best roles (brehze lurk+trade fragger, cerq awper), while ethan takes the back seat most of the time
2020-09-14 05:29
Ethan has been putting up stellar performances lately, and has been given due credit for them. But you’re right, Ethan has such a high ceiling and as you said, takes a lot of the less comfortable roles in the team. So that’s a good pick imo
2020-09-14 11:27
Russia VelsVivard
Happy, he could fill in every role and he did, while being the most impactful one, IGL, second sniper, lurk and a great clutcher. 2014-2015 iteration.
2020-09-14 05:36

still funny his always do something stupid(drink, eat etc) when he waits for lurk
2020-09-15 05:33
2020-09-14 05:40
Very good player, yet at the moment, overrated on HLTV but extremely underrated in general.

Lithuania Edze
You put oskar at awp but no ottond?
2020-09-14 06:07
I confess I haven’t followed OttoNd really since the Cr4zy days. But he looked like an average awper for me then. I don’t know if I’m wrong or if he’s improved since then. Once again, I don’t know too much about him nowadays so correct me if I’m wrong.
2020-09-14 11:36

lambert top 1 for sure
2020-09-14 06:17
2020-09-14 06:17
New Brazilian talent, might as well add Biguzera as well. Both are great prospects for the BR scene, which is nice to see with the implosion of MIBR yesterday.
2020-09-14 11:38
ropz, es3tag, hen1
2020-09-14 06:20
Ropz isn’t underrated, he’s extremely skilled and is given the credit he deserves, but isn’t underrated as he’s seen as a top 5 rifler. Es3tag is underrated, yes, I agree with this one. Hen1 is a very good pick, top awper, and you never hear anything about him since the immortals days.
2020-09-14 11:33
frozen, Brehze
2020-09-14 06:27
Frozen, yes, he has a lot of potential but hasn’t lived up to it just yet. But he still is underrated. Brehze is basically considered the star player of EG, he’s by no means underrated.
2020-09-14 11:30
Slovakia iLycan
Frozen is definitly underrated. Everyone is sucking ropz ballz meanwhile frozen is doing a lot of things to set ropz to win rounds
2020-09-14 11:45
flag checks out.
2020-09-14 16:30
I just feel like I don’t see Brehze mentioned enough when talking about great players. He and EliGE are the 2 best players in NA at the moment, and while EliGE is the better of the 2, Brehze isn’t far behind.
2020-09-15 05:27
Oskar lmao is overrated if anything, everyone always used to hype him but he was just a stat padder, exit and eco fragging extraordinaire nothing more
2020-09-14 11:39
I disagree, he’s a top awper who has proved himself many times over, mostly on Mouz. The reports of attitude issues is the only thing keeping him from another T1 team.
2020-09-14 11:41
huNter used to be so underrated
2020-09-14 11:41
Flair checks out... In all seriousness, he’s been given rightful props now, but god damn that man was underrated back when he was in Cr4zy. It’s good to see him get a star role on G2 and the recognition he deserves.

Yes I did
2020-09-14 16:19
Imo Zehn is pretty underrated Also tiziaN is underrated because he is a good clutch player, has a big brain and good utility usage imo
2020-09-14 16:27
I agree with Zehn. Not so much with tiziaN, although before the online era I would agree with you. He's been given a lot of credit recently which is nice to see.

DeadFox top 1 2021
2020-09-14 19:34
I think Taco, he's a great entry fragger, but he always do the ''dirty'' tasks in the line-ups , so his frag is often negative, but he is a good player at all
2020-09-14 16:34

2020-09-15 05:35
100% agree about xign, I wish he can carry the name of Asian cs internationally alongside bntet I remember a clip of hyb where he got an ace with the awp in dust2 b, it got me hooked into cs fragmovies
2020-09-15 05:35
YES that clip made me a fan of Hyb. It was vs team matrix which had SpawN on it early in his career, also had ScreaM who I mentioned above. It’s one of my favourite clips of oldschool CS, performed by the best awper seen in the game to that point. As for XigN, imo, all MVP had to do, was have a roster of Solo, XigN, Xeta, Stax and Zeff/Glow and you have a solid team that will grab the attention of a t1 team to pick up XigN, Xeta.
2020-09-15 17:51
Coldzera is very underrated
2020-09-15 20:55
Cold is an amazing player, but not really underrated. His team is trash right now and at this specific moment in time, I'd say most individuals in FaZe are underrated because FaZe as a whole sucks right now.
2020-09-15 20:58
2020-09-15 21:03
He's the best IGL in the game. He's not underrated.
2020-09-15 21:43
he didnt appear in the hltv top players, even though he won lots of tournaments
2020-09-15 21:58
Paz was pretty underrated back in the ss days, ex6tenz was underrated too, he even managed to maintain pro league spot with a mediocre LDLC, I think he could still bring a team to a top20/30 team, kinda like krystal. Xizt was underrated too, always overshadowed by gtr, f0rest and friberg, but he had an insane aim and he is one of the players with most tournament wins
