If TOP 20 list was done like it is today back in 2014 KennyS would have been the number 1 player that year with a rating of 1.27 and a single tournament win. Sure he had the best stats but stats don't make the best player performing at the best tournament does and not just any tournaments a MAJOR or a similar event in size. In 2014 GeT_RiGhT was the number 1 player with a rating of 1.13 reaching 3 major finals and winning 1 that year and winning other tournaments. Now lets look at 2019 for example, Device that year had 1.22 rating and won 2 majors and being mvp of one of them and multiple other big events but wait what hes only the 3rd best player that year??? Lets look whos in front S1mple with 1.29 rating?? Well he must have reached both major finals??? Nope not even 3rd.. Well must have won a lot of other tournaments. Nope just 1. Who was number 1 that year? Zywoo with 1.30 rating and once again did nothing in majors like s1mple and won a few shit tournaments. That isn't a number 1 worthy year for me. 2020 was an absolute joke ranking again and should have been skipped because we only had 1 LAN that year, literally irrelevant list. So what happened 2014 KennyS who was 6th that year had a similar year to 2019 s1mple who was 2nd above a double major winner that year? Lost all respect for TOP 20

hltv overrated trophies and team accomplishments when rating players in the top 20. s1mple was so good it literally broke it and finally players on worse teams get more recognition. Another example is FalleN being 2nd in 2016. he wasnt good enough for that.

s1mple 2018 was different and he deserved top 1 that year, won multiple big trophies and was 2nd and 3rd in majors in 2018, but 2019 is a total joke, to put a guy with 3 tournament wins some of which were tier 3 and group stage and 1/4 final exits at majors at number 1...

no I'm saying how before rating mattered less overall and performances at big tournaments mattered more
