> Niko, Electronic, Ax1le, Hobbit, B1t
not even in the race
Has to be Sh1ro, don't think there's much discussion anymore after ZywOo didn't win the major
How could b1t still make it?
zywoo won nothing in 2021, not even a single mvp
b1t, electronic no chance
They will give it Zywoo. He somehow always edges up in HLTV rankings
sh1ro / zywoo. depends on the last 2 months
Statswise it's zywoo, but considering how poor was Vitality tournaments run in 2021, and how well were upstarts from Gambit doing in some online events - I see some shiro/hobbit possibility in top-2.
100% sh1ro. ZywOo was already out of the race in June
Device always had more mvps than s1mple and got lower place due to lower stats, so probably it will not be shiro since zywoos rating is better.
sh1ro as of now. Only 0.03 behind ZywOo but 10x the achievements. So yeah, sh1ro 2nd, ZywOo might be 3rd.
As much as I like ZywOo, sh1ro has to take it for me. He has played brilliantly throughout the season.
On Lan, he was actually very good. Online, he was a monster.
niko , hobbit , electronic , sh1ro , ax1le, b1t , hunter
ZywOo or NiKo, maybe Sh1ro or hobbit but I think ZywOo is definetely the most versatile player of them all.
also b1t barely top 20 btw
out of em all NiKo got no team achievements , but still his lan rating might carry hijm up the rankings
Sh1ro should win it tho this is close between sh1ro and ZywOo
sh1ro, elec and niko are the only options imo
zywoo didnt win enough / get far in playoffs
shiro, unless Zywo destroy everything @ blast finals. Last chance for him
shiro, zywoo has better stats but that's it
b1t cannot be in the race for the top 20 only played a few good events in the last 3 months, players are judged for the whole year before he was only listed for the flamie squad so he also had 1.0 stats
electronic can get the top 8 at the most, but I see him in 10th place because there are s1mple, zywoo, sh1ro, niko, hobbit, ropz, ax1le, jame, yekindar, blamef in front of him
Sh1ro deserves number 2 if we take into account his achievement. And I believe we should take that into consideration.
But, if we want to know who is the best player, and want to do it from the stats perspective, we should consider that :
Gambit, against top 20, maps played 168 : 110 wins / 58 loses
K / D ratio : 1.11
Vitality against top 20, maps played 115 : 64 wins / 51 loses
K / D ratio : 1.0
So Gambit played way better, should have way more round with full weapon vs eco than Vita had, and way less eco round vs full weapon than Vitality. It should help a lot stats wise. Except if rating kind of discount kill vs eco, and disgard eco vs full equip.
Though, we could argue that Sh1ro teammates "stole" some of sh1ro's frag.
niko only one good tournament, maybe cadian
I would have given it to NiKo if it weren't for his two incredible fails in the Major Grand Final. Now I'm not sure...
B1T have 1.09 rating (1.07 vs Top 20) in 2021
he may not get into top 20 and you talking about 2 place wtf
if zywoo gets top 2 you def know HLTV rankings are biased
my top 10 so far considering stats and tourneys , could change till end of year depending on the last 2 3 big tourneys
For once it isn’t obvious
most likely sh1ro, maybe Hobbit
b1t will be top 5..hes one of the best rated players at big events.
no MVP, no Zywoo unfortunately
he's in top 5 for sure though
This year i only watched the major so I would say Niko
shroud 100%, if not then top 3
I think it will probably be ChoKo
I think Shroud deserves it
probably sh1ro, but NiKo could place up there with his hard carry of G2 the past couple of months, or Zywoo can seal it if Vitality wins Blast
Niko probably, he is behind on rating and mvp's but he was constantly in the finals of the tournaments and performed great in pretty much all of them. also his major run was incredible, second only to goat simple
I would say either papatronic or B1t cuz they won grand slam + major + other events + insane players
2nd sh1ro, 3rd zywoo and 4/5 hobbit/NiKo but they are too close now to tell. So it depends on these last 2 months as well.
Hopefully Sh1ro, felt like he showed up on LAN and has good placings/MVPs.
s1mple. Aleksib deserves the first spot
Hard fight between ZywOo and NiKo
i think niko has a change
With Major win, I would say it is between Electronic and sh1ro.
B1t maybe top 10
Off the eye test, it has to be NiKo or Zywoo.
While we all like Niko we gotta be honest here, he did not do all that much before this Major run.
Which was GOD TIER performance and worthy or all the rewards you can think of.
But beginnings in G2 were rough, first the AWP situation, then time they took to settle the roster and for Niko to find his place in that system. He him self said he was not happy with his performance at the time.
But apart from s1mple no one was as consistent this year, Hobbit probably, zywoo had a rough start, sh1ro also had few dips iirc, dev1ce is a light year away from his totally realistic goal to be the player of the year.
So we are likely going to determine that in the next month, I'd like it to be Niko but think it's more realistic to have someone from Gambit as they absolutely demolished everyone in the first half of the year and they are still preforming well.
5. that's the most hard thing
he will place betweet 15-30
sh1ro. If you look at the whole year he's really the only option imo
it's always stats, so zywoo
if mvp counts, then shiro
but without good team it's rare to win mvp, so mvp is a team achievement
anyone saying anything else than zywoo is completely deluded and i will make fun of you in january
I don't think it will be sh1ro but I definitely hope, lol
Right now Sh1ro because of his rating, gambits success, and his 2 ratings. But depending how the last few events go i think NiKo has a shot
there is no way b1t is in top5 this year guys. Check the stats anda be realistic.
NiKo bc form in major play huge part on hltv list
Me, i am going to be no 2 in 2021. FaZe just contacted me to play instead of olof. No 2 i am coming.
Should be either sh1ro or NiKo
ZywOo or NiKo, MAYBE sh1ro but he played like shit on LAN again. ZywOo is better than NiKo and won more and got more MVPs but it all depends on how HLTV weight the Major. Excluding the Major, it's ZywOo by a longshot, but NiKo played lights out at the Major. I think it will be ZywOo 2, NiKo 3, sh1ro 4.
not my idol zypoo he's finished
z ywoo easily, his rating is just so much higher than everyone elses, especially if towards the end of the year vitality win something it's locked in
zywoo, his rating is just too high despite not having won shit
sh1ro for achievements despite awp abusing after
niko for hard carrying g2 after
I wonder why device isn't in contention hmmmmmm
