ZywOo deserved it, here's why
Hobbit | 
Canada BayaGoodAdam 
1) Yes s1mple's rating is 0.01 higher, but ratings from CIS rmrs weren't included (which actually works in favor of s1mple, because he performed bad in CIS rmrs). So ZywOo played more maps in big events despite having 0.01 less rating. 2) ZywOo had better rating in big event playoffs than s1mple by a 0.01 margin (which is a very small margin, but even that 0.01 rating can make a difference when they are very close). And playoffs obviously should have more impact in ranking than group stages. 3) Some people say s1mple lost the #1 spot because he played in CIS rmrs and couldn't earn MVPs from them, but even if he earned an MVP from WePlay Clutch Island, and an EVP from Road to Rio, he still would have had 3 MVPs and 8EVPs, which is arguably less impressive than ZywOo's 6 MVPs and 4 EVPs You can make arguments for s1mple being top1, like him having better elite event rating, but at the end of the day, ZywOo was leading in the most important categories overall, which gave him an advantage over s1mple. So please show some respect instead of thinking s1mple got robbed

s1mple wasn't robbed, it was 50/50 and a subjective decision from hltv what and where should be valued higher.

It's literally stated in the first line of both articles that this was the closent race in CS history. You could read to find out why. That being said, I respect your opinion :) Have a nice day :)

Vitality trophies and 2nd places easily countered by hltv team rank of 2020. Impact and playoffs rating countered by total elite events rating with more maps played, k/d , multi-kills rating and form. Seems like only number of mvps and evps was decisive. Could be countered by quality of mvps and Katowice MVP value, but hltv desided opposite.

it was a 50/50 but hltv just went with what the community wanted and they wanted zywoo more, ez gg.

polls shows that community was in favor of s1mple (but always very close, it was like 49% to 51%).

Those polls were posted on hltv tho. Outside of HLTV, s1mple has a bigger fanbase. I don't remember their name, but some website did a poll about top1 spot, s1mple became top1 by a big margin, and ZywOo and NiKo almost got tied for the top2 spot

Since when was a clearly objective and logical decision “subjective”?

Never lost faith in ZywOo. Very deserved for either player though.
2021-01-20 21:23
Its actually funny how people cant realize that both zywoo and simple were definitely up for the #1. Simplefans just so toxic and stupid that its actually amazing how they can try to deny the fact that zywoo was just as good this year. Fucking be happy for ur idol instead of crying.

S1mple and ZywOo remain the best players. We saw today how incredible they are and tomorrow it will continue. We're lucky

I actually think that the gap will be bigger in favor of ZywOo this year... Kid grows in power each year
2021-01-21 07:02
Thank you for the kind words :) I was actually a fan of GTR when I started watching. As s1mple came up, I followed his story, his character transformations, his rise to the top, and gradually became a fan of his. You know the way one becomes a fan :D That being said, I can see that currently ZywOo is playing the best CS I have seen in a long time, and he totally deserves it. As a CS-fan first, I am happy, not disappointed <3 Have a nice day :)

+1. Also, IMO they should have valued "closest to major" more than "non-existent major" RMRs
2021-01-21 07:49
If s1mple and navi could actually close out the 2-0 leads they were given, s1mples rating and big event ratings would be just. a tad bit better which is all he needed given the .01 diff and he would have 2 more mvps in addition to kato which would have made him top1 for sure. Heck, even with one more big event win and lets assume he got mvp, he probably gets top 1. s1mple said it himself. the better performing team gets the top 1 spot, not because better teammates make a. better player(which they do but team doesent factor into hltv ranking) but because of the mvps over evps.

Imagine carrying what organisation owning astralis and hltv.org decide. Ofcourse if would never be s1mple, its like hit to device ego, small penis syndrome at its best.

Lmao, do you really think that dev1ce is jealous on s1mple? Actually, s1mple is the one who should be jealous here, not dev1ce.
2021-01-21 05:21
Yes, zywoo deserved it
2021-01-20 23:42
"3 MVPs and 8EVPs, which is arguably less impressive than ZywOo's 6 MVPs and 4 EVPs" Arguably? nah, it is definitely less impressive, and even then you're considering non existent mvp and evp.
2021-01-20 23:54

I said arguably because s1mple has more elite events awards, but yeah, 6 MVP is too good
2021-01-20 23:56
Imagine if Zywoo and S1mple could switch teams and there were no language issues. Its weird but I'm pretty sure that BOTH teams would do WORSE. How much is up for debate... -Zywoo wouldn't be able to carry harder than s1mple, likely can't carry as hard and thus Navi would be stuck where they are now or in worse position. -S1mple would be baiting/trading frags as usual but his personality and lower ingame IQ compared to zywoo would prevent Vitality from being as good as they are.

Are you under the impression I like Zywoo if I think he's a smarter player than s1mple? Let me be clear, idgaf about either of those virgins. I'm simply stating my opinion from a completely unbiased point of view. Also speaking English and getting laid isnt difficult
2021-01-21 02:06
Agreed, but I think s1mple would struggle more. When you talk about ingame IQ, I think you have different types of IQ. Zywoo has a better overall game sense, to understand what's the best for the team. S1mple has a better immediate game sense, thus he makes more flashy plays. In this sense, I think zywoo would struggle less than s1mple if they got each other's role, because zywoo has potential and skills to carry, but he sacrifices himself a lot for the better game plan (like being entry as TR or playing with the worse weapon). S1mple on the other hand, he could do zywoo role, but a lot of his impact in game happens because he can trade kills very fast, so, usually his teammates are the sacrifices for him. Taking this for him would be very harsh.

these are mere vague concepts. s1mple is the better player, but my opinion like everyone elses is equivocal. there is no reason to argue because what I'm saying is the truth and the reason he didn't get #1 is because zywoo is getting mvps in top 100 team tourneys. whilst s1mple is destroying legends in top 10 tourneys. befure u reply to argue, shut the fuck up.
2021-01-21 02:35
s1mple has a higher peak as a player overall. The most insane plays ever done in the history of the game were done by s1mple. However now that you mentioned how bad NaVi were in the CIS tournaments, I think that's enough to hand the award to Zywoo for this year, even though I think s1mple is better in the end.
2021-01-21 05:32
it doesn't matter who got first there was going to be debate for the other but i am disappointed about is kennyS not getting into top20
