es3tag is on fire with highest rating in Astralis
South Africa LustedSilli 
Patrick "es3tag" Hansen has the highest rating in the current Astralis active lineup with 1.21 after the match yesterday against NiP. With only 0.56 Deaths per Round, a 1.20 impact rating, as well as a 77% KAST, he is well above his player average right now. Is he going up even further in the next match against Fnatic?

Oof, i remember people flaming him because he was bad
2020-09-16 11:43
Yes back on heroic. Both him and mertz got a lot shit. :()
2020-09-16 11:47
Me too. He took all the non-favorable roles in heroic and only got shit on for it. Whenever snappi was gone from heroic, he started playing well. Snappi/moddii constellation was not good - very toxic. Could also have an effect on es3 back then. Just glad he finally get the praise, he deserves. Very versatile, high skill ceiling.
2020-09-16 11:52
+1, I knew Astralis knew what was going on, they planned this all along, also you should check Es3tag Instagram, this guy is grinding the shit out of DM and Faceit
2020-09-16 12:42
I think the hltv ranking system prefers Navi. Even though they win against shit teams and lose against good team. It seems like they are only watching the winning games and promoting them up. While astralis just had one bad series in cologne against nip and are on fire in pro league still they are out of top 10. sOmple fan in hltv ranking system ?
2020-09-17 08:02
why is he suddenly good? he used to be a bot
2020-09-16 11:43
Hmm, I dont know, maybe its like he always had potential, but he needed time to develop gamesense and teamplay good enough for elite tier? Scratch that, he must be cheating
2020-09-16 11:51
He is playing with best igl and Coach in the scene, in the most coordinated team ever. He did learn few things that help him play better. It would be sad if he didnt learn anything.
2020-09-16 12:05
Interesting that all of a sudden magisk is the best igl 🤔
2020-09-16 12:07
Erm.. No.. Dont bait, u know who im talking about.
2020-09-16 12:08
Yeah sure but i believe glaive is a player rn and not the igl, so es3 never really played under glaive
2020-09-16 12:10
Well, glaive is igl cuz since he returned they actually started winning. Why would magisk want igl role when he was struggling when he took it? Makes no sense to believe that he is igl lol
2020-09-16 12:37
I heard that magisk is main igl and glaive helps out a bit but maybe they changed again, glaive is such a great player as matter the igl the gamesense and teamplay is there when the core plays i think...
2020-09-16 13:57
K now stop baiting.
2020-09-16 14:00
Where exactly am i baiting?
2020-09-16 14:53

You're not baiting i also think Magisk IGL becouse looking at mouz vs Astralis was weird, gla1ve has never pushed so agressive close in outside he knew it was risky maybe its becouse they want to stabilize him.
2020-09-17 10:50
True....but that guy propably realised his mistake and gave up^^
2020-09-17 11:04
Zywho-fan, don't mind him
2020-09-16 13:57
Yes dont mind some of the only ppl on hltv who u can actually talk to, sure, good idea, hf with ur best pertner for talks: s1mple_best aka sam2ks 10th alt
2020-09-16 14:55
I enjoyed my time talking to: Soul88, braindead kid. Also I like some good talks, but I don't like it when ppl don't got the facts straight but act like they do.
2020-09-16 14:59
Ok why are u so sure i got my facts right?
2020-09-16 17:56
giving IGL to other player when you have glaive in your team is like giving awp to guardian when you have s1mple in your team
2020-09-17 08:34
Or its smart cz astralis players have all the support behind them to become a godlike igl as well and now they can perform if glaive Takes a break again
2020-09-17 09:59
Poland Recruitn1
Or gla1ve needs time to get his gamesense and aim back on top?
2020-09-17 10:51
I dont really think so though....i mean glaive came Back so sharp imo
2020-09-17 11:04
But yeah maybe he needs some time to get used to competing vs the best again
2020-09-17 11:05
such insight
2020-09-16 11:53
Never was a bot, always got the shit positions. He's learning a lot from Astralis now while they use him in the right way to fulfill his true potential. Easier to play well in a well organized team, now we finally see how good he actually is.
2020-09-16 11:55
yeah true, just commenting from what i've seen of him in the past. like he wasn't the best aimer and his consistency wasn't there either. but sure, players can improve you never know.
2020-09-16 11:59
True as well! Calm and smart player which suits Astralis well, and not just that, he also fits very well in xyp9x positions.
2020-09-16 12:02
Maybe, just maybe the Astralis organization knows more about potential tier 1 players than any HLTV forum member? Maybe...
2020-09-16 11:58
You might just be onto something there
2020-09-16 12:00
where has your account come from? newly created and instant admin? no bio or explanation of your job on this site whats the deal?
2020-09-17 06:45
How I spawned and the inner works on HLTV is confidential. I get why you are asking but I retain the right to not answer
2020-09-17 07:33
Ok have they figured out how to spawn active moderators yet
2020-09-17 07:44
2020-09-17 07:46
mf acting like hes working with fbi lmfao
2020-09-17 07:51
+1 this is hltv we need moderators not reddit users
2020-09-17 07:52
2020-09-17 07:53
Funny stuff.
2020-09-17 08:19
I know right
2020-09-17 08:20
Not as funny as moderation quality on HLTV
2020-09-17 08:21
Not really. I mean yeah, HLTV moderation is big joke but I think my joke is better
2020-09-17 08:24
do you moderate the forums? or just post this sort of threads
2020-09-17 08:22
Why not both.
2020-09-17 08:32
Hmmm, maybe playing alongside the players who are in the best that have ever played the game also helps his stats? lol
2020-09-16 12:00
sounds unrealistic but noted it

Guess how Hint: nVidia
2020-09-16 15:01
He joined nvidiastralis. Noone else noticed gla1ve and xyp9x quietly disappear when all these "bugs" came to light
2020-09-17 07:35
So why are es3tag suddenly so much better, if they no longer use these bugs?
2020-09-17 07:56
Theyve found a new bug that we will learn about next year from an "anonymous source"
2020-09-17 10:43
Better systems and game plans make better players.
2020-09-17 08:54
how the hell is possible that you see device with 1.21 rating as well on es3tag page but when you click on device he has only 1.17:D? device has better ratings vs top5+top10 and higher impact rating anyway
2020-09-16 11:46
Czech Republic nenz
when you click on his profile it is stats from past 3 months, 1.21 is all time
2020-09-16 11:47
yea you are right:D thanks
2020-09-16 11:48
1.21 is not all time, it is from matches he played with es3tag
2020-09-16 11:56
Czech Republic nenz
yeah, my bad
2020-09-16 11:57
device averages 1.21 also in matches both him and es3tag played in, which is shown when you visit the es3tag page
2020-09-16 11:49

Good for him, he fits to Xyp's roles pretty well and is making the most out of the opportunity he has got.
2020-09-16 11:57
He fits so good, eventhough i cant wait to see the clutch minister back!
2020-09-16 11:58
Bubzkji will be wasted in Astralis because Es3tag fits a lot better in the team currently and as a 6th man. Bub will earn a lot and gain a lot of experience, but if I was him I'd be trying to leave, he's good enough for a team like C9, FaZe etc. Obviously I don't know all that goes on behind the scenes so maybe Astralis have a plan with him.
2020-09-16 12:01
Petdect sub for dupreeh id say
2020-09-16 12:09
What's crazy is he can come in for any of them. If Magisk or gla1ve can't play, the other one IGL's and es3tag comes in, if Dupreeh can't play he can, if Xyp can't he obviously can and if dev1ce can't, obviously not to the same level, but Magisk, Dupreeh and es3tag are all pretty good with the AWP. This Astralis team is about to go to the next level and bring CS Esports up with it.
2020-09-16 12:19
Yep...and no team will be near it since no team has the same structure or the same players.... Navi and vitality have the best 2 players, maybe ever, but they lack in the igl/coach Department imo....they just arent as professional and efficient as astralis imo Then we have those international projects that only work out part time for some reason
2020-09-16 13:56
bro i said it 2 years ago es3tag will be best player and join astralis soon.

i was really stunned by him yesterday especially his gamesense which could be seen in his ability to decide good in clutch situations and this gamesense can be absolute fire in a team like astralis with their excellent communication and an IGL like glaive who provides a lot of information for his team
2020-09-16 12:17
he has been playing like this last 2-3 years so insane in heroic lately, i call him es3god
2020-09-16 12:33
The kyerbie effect
2020-09-16 12:34
-ecolai +bubzki es3tag is the better awper anyways.
2020-09-16 12:36
es3tag has been a key player on Heroic as well
2020-09-16 15:03
i could imagine how much work this guy put in the game when the day he leave Heroic for this
2020-09-17 11:17
He really worked from the bottom to the top, bless him
