Being smart is very unspecific, but s1mple is easily top 5 in game sense. When they play on CT Nuke they are always where the terrorists go, and on Inferno when s1mple rotates he is correct 95% of the time. Also you will always see s1mple making the smartest plays like getting equalizers to put his team back into a 4v4 without getting picked.

S1mple and Zywoo both very smart in game wdym. Do you think theyd be #1 and #2 while not being some of the smartest players ever?

As #145 said, not every smart player is igl lmao. It wouldnt be beneficial if the greatest players had to focus on a lot of things other than playing the game and winning the round....but i guess ur pretty new then or not really into cs at a high level:)
2021-05-13 17:23
maybe not in terms of strats, but their in-the-moment decisions in clutches and rotations are the best

If I'm not mistaken that he was so bored from CS because of the same maps, same tactics, same things. After he retired from the game, Valve announced the new game (CS:GO) but I still don't know that why he is not playing CS:GO. Maybe it's because of his private life. (I mean family, job etc...)

You are telling me spawn invented ninja defuse by failing at it ? He came up with an idea and he failed at it, then suddenly he invents the idea? Are you saying ninja defuse has never happened before in cs before spawn “tried” it?

With this Logic you also don't give credit to those who come up with a mathematical theorem, but you give all credit to the ones proving it? Sometimes in Mathematics it takes 100s of years from a theory being created til someone can prove it, but yeah, i Guess fuck whoever came up with the idea in the first place.

Einstein calculated that there should be such a thing as a black Hole. Not before now we have a picture of a black Hole. Einstein is credited and the scientists behind the picture is credited. Nikola Tesla is largely credited for inventing electricity even though we haven't been able to harness it's true Powers until recently. =All involved are credited Don't be such an ignorant, small minded Burger please!

i think flusha for sure but JW has had some giga brain ideas too. also s1mple and zywoos in game intelligence is often overlooked due to how insane their aim is but they are also insanely game aware. glaive is a good shout but imo his intelligence is not really "in game" like the other players mentioned here - he's a strategist and team leader but his individual game sense isnt even as good as dev1ce or xyp9x. for me the list is: 1. flusha 2. s1mple 3. zywoo 4. shox - dont forget that shox has the most clutches at a professional level of all time 5. xyp9x

xyp is n1 for me, the decisions he makes are just insane, would be cool to go inside his brain and see how hes thinking. 2. would be flusha 3-4. gtr/shox gtr's decisions are insane aswell. shox has the most clutches, but with him its mostly brute force, just headshoting everyone. zywoo is too early to say. s1mple is just doing retarded things, sometimes it works, sometimes it does not, s1mple vs fnatic for example, then u have s1mple vs ence.

I agree with many people here, you have to include S1mple and maybe Zywoo I feel like they caused a major shift in world #1s. There's a lot of players that can get 1.20 rating because they can click heads, but the reason S1mple and Zywoo are so high above the competition (1.30+) is because of their intelligence in game. I'd even argue in terms of playstyle, while S1mple has a bit more skill, Zywoo is so robotic in his analysis he might be one of the smartest players of all time
