Liquipedia says his first tournament was in 2004, 17 years ago. He was playing in pro tournaments before some CSGO pros were even born, and here he is top fragging against a top team full of fraggers. The CS GOAT and it's not even close
GeT_RiGhT is a good shout if we're counting both games since it was only in 2018 that he really started to drop off and he was at one point the best player / GOAT in CS:GO unlike f0rest who was always 2nd to either NEO in 1.6 or GTR in early CS:GO.
possibly, but the problem is he was consistently 2nd
he was not quite on neo's lvl during neo's peak
not quite on markeloff's level during his peak
not quite on GTR level during his peak
But if we talking ALL TIME it's got to be him
Fnx won 2 majors only. f0rest won 1, + many many more tournaments in cs history. sorry kiddo, not changing opinion. You clearly didnt experience 1.5 and 1.6, so im not gonna listen to your small knowledge.
f0rest has 55 LAN trophies in all of CS. Literally nobody else is even remotely close. He started in 2004 and HLTV player rankings started 7 years later. Even then, he was in HLTV top20 for 7 more years since 2010, and he won majors across all forms of CS.
