Honestly ZywOo has the advantage of a much better team compared to s1mples team.
By raw skill they are quite uncompareable, i dare to say both of them are GOATS.
I think Zywoo is just another generation of talent more of which (more players) that is about to come.
but I think s1mple was way too ahead of his time. comapred the ahead of his time zywoo was.
best sniper : s1mple
best aimer : s1mple
best awareness : Zywoo
best impact : =
better player : s1mple
yet, ZYwoo has more impact for his team. he's willing to buy a MP9, he's willing to full eco, he's willing to trade his awp role with nivera on Inferno... but s1mple better, thats for sure, even tho Zywoo is the better teamplayer
s1mple 2018 > xi wu 2019 and 2020
I don't understand this, it's not just s1mple's aim that makes him so good, it's his gamesense, any analyst can tell you that.
zywoos been playing like a top 20 recently
there's a smaller gap between device/NiKo and zywoo than between zywoo and s1mple
zywhoo > s1mple just because zywhoo actually winning the rd for u until he dies first meanwhile s1mple he dies last and baits u first lmfao
I suspect some of the difference to be because of their in-game mechanical habits.
ZywOo has a great crosshair placement + smooth movement. That makes his aim look smooth and seamless. It's quite effective but less flashy. s1mple has a good, but not great crosshair placement. However, his lightning flicks are unbelievably precise and accurate. It's very flashy, but not always effective. Because if one day s1mple's low on confidence and flicks don't hit, it becomes difficult to get kills and recover. If Zywoo's low on confidence, this part is not much affected because he didn't need to flick much anyway. That being said, both of them are on an average, very consistent players. So, this problem doesn't arise much.
s1mple hacks his ass off, so ZywoO is obviously the better player.
s1mple is niko on steroids, zywoo is device on steroids. zywoo plays smarter than s1mple but s1mple gets in bad positions but can just shoot his way out of it. S1mple also plays like he does as spent years on bad teams so he feels forces to go for the yolo plays to try win rounds.
In order to be GOAT, s1mple and ZywOo lack what device has. And device lacks what s1mple and ZywOo have.
First of all, s1mple and ZywOo with their different styles are well above the rest. It's them and then everyone else. That is clear.
Second, in order to be the GOAT, a certain level of CONSISTENT PERFORMANCE has to be achieved. device has it. s1mple has it (been a top player for over 5 years). ZywOo still doesn't but not for lack of merit. It's just his second year at the top. I am sure he'll get there but for now, more time has to pass with him staying at the top.
And finally, success. Success is key for any athlete/player worthy of being called GOAT. And that's what s1mple and ZywOo still don't have enough. If CS stopped tomorrow then device would probably the best contender for GOAT. For now we have to settle for calling both s1mple and ZywOo the best without using the term GOAT.
A clear example of what I mean. If you were to ask: Who is the best awper of all time in 1.6? Most people would say markeloff. Why? Because in addition to being so dominant and even though he only played during the last 3 years of the game (as a top player), in those years he (and his team) won EVERYTHING and therefore having the skill and the success required attached to his name.
