Top 10 CSGO GOATS
 | 
United States NockBofferman 
Another user made a thread similar to this and I Figured I'd share mine. s1mple is the most skilled player ever and KennyS has the highest peak, but their accomplishments don't quite earn them the number 1 spots in my opinion. 1. Dev1ce 2. GeT_RiGhT 3. Coldzera 4. Olofmeister 5. s1mple 6. Flusha 7. Fallen 8. KennyS 9. F0rest 10. Shox Honorable Mentions: Snax, Niko, Guardian, Zywoo, Krimz Everyone is going to talk about s1mple and where they think he belongs. IMO if s1mple wins 1 major he becomes a part of the 2-3-4 conversation, but right now those 3 are untouchable. If he wins 2-3 he has a solid argument for the #1 spot, but for now I think #5 is fair enough. Thoughts?

The dude was a beast from the very start of the game, all the way until he exited nip last year, and even still he's a beast. You need to account for not only achievements, but longevity, skill, utility usage, map awareness, the amount of tournaments, games, and maps played, against which teams, team ranking etc... It's not only about who was top1 or whatever else brazillians say

Gla1ve may have more majors and may be a smarter IGL, but he was never a star player for his team like Fallen was. Saying gla1ve belongs here is like saying xyp9x or TACO belong on this list

fallen star player then cold support player ROFL
2021-08-07 08:46
Fallen was never a star player though. It's just that he had a really good peak and at times was the best man on the team but categorically he wasn't a star player.
2021-08-07 09:38
Does someone have to fit the typical 'star' roles to be in GOAT contention? cuz success in csgo comes from a lot more than a star. With gla1ve being a pretty high fragging igl who big brained his team to tons of major wins, shouldnt he big in goat contention? I mean would they even have gotten that far w/o him? doubt it.

1. Device 2. S1mple 3. GeT_RiGhT 4. Cold 5. Olaf 6. F0rest 7. KennyS 8. Guardian 9. NiKo 10. Zywoo I understand the argument for major accomplishments, but I think the skill that Zywoo and S1mple demonstrate is enough to put them on the list alone, perhaps I'm too new to the game to know the peak of old greats I really think Gla1ve and Karrigan deserve shouts for IGLing, GOATs in my heart I never watched games where Flusha and Shox had huge impact, so it's probably why they didn't make the list to me

Yeah, guys like Flusha, Shox and Snax were just so talented in their peak it's a shame you never watched them, but it's not like putting Guardian or Zywoo in over them is disgraceful, they were(and Zywoo still is) unbelieveable. This really just shows what we value more lol, I put more value on achievements(Flusha, Shox, Snax,) while you value skill more(Guardian, Zywoo, Niko) which is interesting

i mean there are n number of arguments why s1mple has to be the goat but i wont get into that only thing im getting into is how does flusha make it to number 6 lmao also f0rest in global offensive wasnt a "goat" at all, he was just good in 2013 thats it 1. s1mple 2. dev1ce 3. GeT_RiGhT 4. olofmeister 5. coldzera 6. kennyS 7. GuardiaN 8. FalleN 9. shox 10. snax anyways i still respect your list nonetheless, atleast it is not blatant bait and you provided points as to why s1mple should be lower than what most people put him at

Even I as a diehard Liquid fan can't put Stewie or EliGE in the top 10. EliGE is one of the most skilled riflers ever, and Stewie is the only player outside of the Astralis core to have a major and a Grand Slam, but that doesn't carry them high enough. And Karrigan is the smartest IGL ever but thats all. Otherwise a decent list
2021-08-07 06:44
3 replies
I can see EliGE, but Stewie is the cornerstone for NA cs and has such a massive impact on the game as a whole. Putting someone like ZywOo or Coldzera in the top 10 (like a lot of people are) doesn't make sense when he is the most accomplished and consistent NA player for the most inconsistent roles and often having to carry much of Liquids slack over the years. I feel people like putting Stewie aside simply because he's NA and people fan boy him, but he's a top 10 no doubt.
2021-08-07 06:49
2 replies
He's consistent and the most accomplished, but his skill raw skill isn't anywhere near what these other players have had. He also never carried Liquid idk where that came from. He is certainly underrated cuz he's NA but not this underated
2021-08-07 06:53
If u want to put stew than put Xyp9x, dupreeh and magisk too. They are more accomplished players. And in what bizzare world stew is the most consistent player

Gla1ve deserves to be on this list... cmon man, why do people like Flusha are in the list when Gla1ve was/is the most important player on Astralis? he was such a good IGL that he managed to keep Astralis in #1 spot for around 3 years, with literally everyone in the pro scene studying and reviewing his demos over and over again, not to take out his Fragging ability, his aim is top 20 worthy but sadly people overlook him so much

Dupreeh I´m most surprised that nobody has mentioned Dupreeh. A solid foundation and suddenly he goes crazy and completely owns a map/game. Also extremely versatile and clever. I admire Glaive and Karrigan but think they´re part of another discussion, clearly both Top 5 IGL.

No bias but (okay maybe some bias) but I'd say Dupreeh belongs on the list. He's been one of the greatest Entries and Second-best players on a team. Only Magisk and Electronic can rival his peak in 2018. I'd maybe count Krimz as well but he did it during a less competitive era of CS. Plus Dupreeh has been more consistent over the years than Krimz, while objectively often playing more sacrificial roles. Imo F0rest, Fallen and KennyS are ranked too high. All of them are legends, and I respect each and every one of them but I can objectively justify putting Dupreeh over them. If you're going by accomplishments over skill, Dupreeh should even be over Flusha. Flusha was insane back in the day but fell off hard. Such a shame because he was a player that I loved watching. Dupreeh isn't the same guy as he was in 2018 but he's still solid.

1. Coldzera 2. Olofmeister 3. GeT_RiGhT 4. KennyS 5. Dev1ce 6. s1mple 7. F0rest 8. Fallen 9. Flusha 10. NiKo The reason why Dev1ce is at 5 is because I feel like the reason he has won so much is not because he is a big star but because the team played so well together. s1mple at 6 untill he wins a major, when de does that and if he gets the MVP I move him up to 1 if he don't get the MVP I would move him to 3. With NiKo in 10 that is because I feel that it is a close battle for that spot so there I choose the player I like the most out of the players it stood between. It could be debated if ZywOo should be there but I think he have been at the top level of competition for a to short period of time.

2021-08-08 04:47
Device is deserved maybe not 1 but deffo top 5. I wouldn't say KennyS had highest peak.... as he peaked when you could still move fast with the awp which was OP. Forest deserves to be there the guy places so consistent people don't realise it!! Simple in the end will probably be number 1 as he's still young and already dominated as a player. Obviously needs to obtain more trophies... but that's what's beautiful about Cs anyone really can show up and win on the day. I really really like get right but I feel he was always hit and miss... he never played solid every week. He was either amazing or flopped. As a legend yes top 10 but actual game play Id say he's top 20....

The AWP was only OP in Kenny's hands, at least that's how I see it. I do agree that if s1mple wins a major or 2 he'll likely end up as the greatest every, but he still has a bit to go.
