ZywOo deserves it with his performance, but IEM Katowice is weighted far too much so s1mple will probably get it.
To be very brief (seriously):
1) Most important stat: "Elite events" performance, where s1mple leads significantly.
2) 2nd most important stat: "Big events playoffs" performance, where they are probably tied.
3) Another stat that's sometimes taken into account: Rating against TopX teams - s1mple leads *against* Top5, Top20, Tied against Top30 and Top50. ZywOo leads against top10. Note: HLTV TopX filter is different (my last thread for proof, and #179 on that thread for a live verification)
4) Achievements: ZywOo 6 MVPs vs s1mple 2 MVPs. ZywOo expected EVPs are about 3, s1mple's expected EVPs are about 7. Hence, 9 (MVPs+EVPs) for both. Now, IEM Katowice is weighed very heavily (my 2nd last thread for proof), while RMR events are depreciated (my 2nd last thread for proof).
These are the "deciding" factors. Individual components are often highlighted for readers' interest. However, they aren't necessary for shifting the decisions made by using above 4 points.
Overall, it's pretty equal for both. Fans of both sides might disagree, but I have personally confirmed all of it with HLTV.Org senior admins.
PS: Have a nice day :)
In my opinion probably s1mple, because of the fact that he has better statistics when looking at the "Elite events" only. I understand that zywoo has more opening kills per round and a higher impact statistically. You also need to remember the factor that s1mple has less consistent teammates than zywoo and that is the reason s1mple doesn't play those bad roles.
where are my S1mple boiis at ? S1mple real top1.
Zywoo cos he aced with 9 hp
all time s1mple but in 2019 and 2020 zywoo better than s0mple
zywoo is real carry, open fragger, clutcher
s0mple is stats padder doesn't even deserve top10
zywoo ofc, the goat
s2mple noob baiter
1 - ZyWoo/s1mple
2 - dev1ce
3 - NiKo
4 - blameF
5 - ropz
6 - electronic
7 - XANTARES
S1mple won top1 of 2018 ignoring Device's MVPs, cuz S1mple was better statistically. This will happen again. Because we are choosing not the best team, but the best PLAYER.
MVP-s amount should not be as important, quality of them should.
That's why NaVi ranked above Vitality in 2020 teams rank.
So zywoo is actually ahead only in KAST and Impact stats. Everything else goes for s1mple.
s0mple just baits and gets the all frags while hes team dies, zywoo is just fucking god who plays for hes team and doenst bait
Pretty close. I want S1mple to be no 1. Let's see. But one thing is for sure. Rip hltv forums from the time no 2 will be releaved
both insane but ZywOo is better
Zywoo 6 mvp medals 2020 simple 3 ... rating +- is same
vitality 2 elite events win 4 runner up
navi 1 elite events win 2 runners up
zywoo 1 simple 2
I think my balls itch, so zywoo
zywoo number 1. really hard 2 argue.
I think they should put bigger weight on team playing abilities. And even if S1mple played very well in group stage against astralis for example they then lose in the final. For me it's easy ZywOo over S1mple but I would put Device infront of both of them because the way device play he wins for the team and get less good statistics. And in strange ways S1mple wins MVP over Device when they are coming second or third.
s1mple skill wise >>>
but ZywOo has a way better team, not his fault anyway, s1mple is the one that likes to play in NAVI
i wish it was s1mple but im pretty sure it will be zywoo
Either way it's gonna be a very close decision. If I were in charge I would've given it to s1mple just to intensify their mutual competition. As we all know, s1mple is a super hardworking yet emotional player and #2 might havely affect his morale which is no good for the overall scene.
its really close but i think he edges it
the CS GO version of Ronaldo vs Messi
I was hopping art would make into the list ;;;;(
