TOP 5 THIS YEAR
FL1T | 
Kazakhstan vaezryyy 
Guys and ideas who is gonna be in the top 5 after s1mple? If Zywoo gonna win this tournament and the blast as well he definitely would be top2 Even though ppl call him onliner sh1ro is gonna be top3 cuz he already got 3 mvps NiKo is top4 simply because he didn't win anything at all but it depends on G2 performance at these tournaments I have many contenders for the top5: B1T who did not lose any match on LAN, electronic consistently performs at a high level as well as Hobbit, also Ax1Le who has good aim too But I don't consider any other players for the top5 honestly cuz there is no one except these people

If you have 1.40 rzting at 2 events and then 1.10 in all otherd do you think its better than the one with 1.30 all time ?

i know that it matters too but just want to convey the fact that mvps plays role too
2021-12-07 11:15
If those two 1.40 ratings gave your team two tournament wins while one with 1.30 did not give your team any wins, I would say that the 1.40 guy has been better when has mattered the most.

But your rzting goes up automatically when your team is better, thats why you can even see frozen get a random mvp when his team had a 1 month god level, it doesnt change that during the reste he was mediocre, individual top20 is based on 1 total year because thats the only way to know if your "god" level is consistent and permanent or only shows up once every 6 months
2021-12-07 19:48

I think Frozen should be in top20. Barely but still. I wouldn't think that without the mvp.

or mabye mvp awards are only given to players from the winning team? (like 99% of the time anyways)
2021-12-08 18:53

this is the thing, the players of the team that won a particular event do have an advantage in the competition for MVP but for the player from the team that lost in the final and if he had the best rating among players, by getting MVP he would definitely get credit
2021-12-08 19:12
It's literally a fact that MVPs are a crucial factor on who ranks where in the top 20. Without any MVPs you would never be considered to be the number 1 player, as it also proves that you were the biggest factor in why your team won an event (obviously)
2021-12-07 15:35

MVPs are only useful in picking between 2 very close players in the rankings. Otherwise their role is little. I would put value over the number of EVPs over MVPs, but even then hltv isnt perfect with those. eye test and stats are the most important by far.

nope, not true, S1mple had 1.20 rating in 2017, but navi sucked, he got just 1 mvp and was 8th on the list.
2021-12-07 17:45
5 replies
yeah hltv's methods arent perfect as I mentioned. Especially before s1mple's 2018 they overrated MVPs and team titles way way too much so guys like FalleN were second when he should have been that high (still probably top 10 but not second place). A more contemporary example is dupreeh in 2020. He could be top 20 but was never supposed to be 9th.
2021-12-07 19:02
nah they use in the past the players team performance for the top but in 2018 they change it and only focus in the individual performance aka the stats if they use the 2017 criteria dev1ce is back to back top 1 2018-2019 and maybe 2020 too

It's both by technicality, it's more matrimonial when you break down the semantics. You have to be successful as a team to net more valuable individual achievements like MVP's and winning events adds to your statistics, it increases your statistics against Top 5 opponents and it legitimises how good your statistics are also. Like all team games, CS:GO is a team game by its core but it is made up of individuals working together and every team has a star-player.

if you didn't know how hltv works then let me tell you. 'lan' stats or online stats are literally the same and ropz hasn't achieved anything except flashpoint s3. On the other hand, Hobbit has achieved a lot with Gambit this year so I don't see why ropz should be above Hobbit but I can be wrong.

"if you didn't know how hltv works then let me tell you." Proceeds to sprout bs lul No, LAN stats are not the same as online stats, LAN stats are weighted more heavily.

Nice Danish flag mate. 3x gambit, 2x Navi, Niko and Zywoo will certainly be ahead of both Cadian and Device, so top7 is those. Then we have Jame, Yekindar, Hunter, Ropz, Twistzz where Device is among these guys in some order. Then we have b1t, blamef, KSCERATO, Broky, Frozen who should all be ahead Cadian. Leaves Cadian to be at highest no.18. This considering that Cadian doesn't win Blast global.

Yeah I agree that Heroic is weird. They have been so consistent in results but lack any superstar players. Meaning that it could be possible (not likely) to not have any heroic players in top20 while they as a team are easily top5 this year. Every player in that team is so good.
2021-12-07 19:36

i would still go with cadian simply because in 2020 3 players of furia were at the top20 of that year even though they only won a couple of NA events, In comparison with them, heroic won ESL Pro League which might guarantee top to cadian who is quite better than his teammates
2021-12-07 22:12
3 replies
In 2020 rankings many still thought that NA cs is almost comparable to Europe cs and Furia did dominate NA. Only after we saw some NA teams come to Europe everyone realised how far NA had fallen. In pro league no Heroic player was even close of mvp. Even Cadian had quite average tournament where his rating was very inconsistent towards the end. But can make top20, yes very possible. Cannot make top10 and I would say not even top15.

The difference between ZywOo and sh1ro is 0.04 only in the favor of ZywOo. The better results will give the 2nd place to sh1ro. Sure ZywOo is a better player, but taking from previous top 20s I would say sh1ro number 2. hltv.org/news/28840/top-20-players-of-20.. hltv.org/news/28847/top-20-players-of-20.. About the same situation as here. Altho to be fair NAF was below electronic despite having marginally worse stats than magisk, so ZywOo can take it, but winning one of the last 2 tournaments is a condition for it. hltv.org/news/28837/top-20-players-of-20..

Yes, only 0.04 rating difference (overall) and 1.17 impact vs 1.36 XD Zywoo on lan: 1.30 rating 1.38 impact sh1ro 1.23 rating 1.15 impact Zywoo on big events: 1.28 rating 1.36 impact sh1ro 1.17 rating 1.05 impact PGL major: Zywoo 1.30 rating 1.42 impact Sh1ro 1.21 rating 1.11 impact As u can clearly see - There is no way sh1ro will get 2nd place (I doubt he will even get 3rd cuz of niko's good performance overall, especially on lan) He's baiting so hard so he gets better KD, also his best performance was online and got only 1 important MVP (online btw)
2021-12-06 17:56
8 replies
Why do you mention Impact separately? Rating 2.0 already includes it. I mean, there are many components, and impact rating isn't necessarily about who is more "impactful" either. I can give you examples of when a player with low impact rating and high overall rating, ranked above the vice-versa, even though the other guy had big achievements.
2021-12-06 18:01
5 replies
Because I wanted to show you that sh1ro is baiting a lot to get better statistics. Still, even if u look only at rating - zywoo is much better on important events (LANs/Big events/major) Sh1ro farmed his statistics online mostly. But in this case sh1ro doesn't have big achievments.
2021-12-06 18:05

Well yeah, baiters tend to have low impact ratings, by definition. But overall rating is definitely most important. Components like ADR, KDR, Impact are not used separately for rankings. Admins confirmed that last year.

It was a 50/50 when I made that decision, b1t has the better stats on LAN and better stats against top 20/10/5 opponents so I went for him

sh1ro will be in Top 5 - one of b1t/elec will not place above him.
2021-12-07 23:24
"Even though ppl call him onliner sh1ro is gonna be top3 cuz he already got 3 mvps" No he won't, 3 MVPs - 1 from big online event, 1 from online rmr tournament and 1 from t2 lan tournament so tbh only 1 mvp does matter (and not much) Top1 is obv s1mple, then niko/zywoo, sh1ro might be 4th and 5th is probably ax1le (or electronic if he performs good at blast final and maybe gets mvp) B1t won't be in top5, he started playing with navi in late april (almost may)

If we do not take online events or not highest level lan tournaments into consideration, we have mvp winners of; S1mple, S1mple, S1mple. Then someone new from iem winter. Then likely S1mple again from blast global. Since S1mple is already top1 regardless, are you saying that mvp this year holds no value at all?

Well that I can agree. That top level lan tournaments mvp's of iem winter mvp and blast global final should hold more value than others (not counting S1mple ones). But the other mvp's still exist and should hold value as much as normal mvp's in normal times.

he dropped insane numbers in all three big LAN tournaments this year, which just like last year will be weighted much heavier than the online crap, so top 10-15 would be possible. He has the 4th highest LAN rating of 2021 behind s1mple, ZywOo and NiKo with electronic right behind him. Pretty nuts tbh, NaVi has 3 out of the 5 best LAN player in 2021.

So G2 has been far better than Vitality all this year, except for the post break drubbing. When knocking down niko, it’s because G2 hasn’t won anyone. Neither has Vitality. Niko carried G2 to a major finals. Zywoo couldn’t do that. I think there’s a stronger case of Niko being 2nd than zywoo. You are also comparing a non-AWPer to an AWPer, so the HLTV rating is always going to look better for awpers.

i agree that niko has been impressive but i doubt he will be placed higher than zywoo :(

one of the reasons for that zywoo has been carrying all the time. Niko has hunter and nexa though

But HLTV doesn't care about role, it's all about statistics + achievments

Statistics for awpers are skewed. They save more than riflers, so their deaths are lower. They don’t entry on bomb sites, typically are one of the last ones to enter, so information is already known of enemy positions. Less deaths, and at tier 1 information is everything. AWPers are typically more insulated than riflers. Padding their stats. It’s why top-3 according to HLTV rating 2.0 are all AWPers.

"They don’t entry on bomb sites, typically are one of the last ones to enter" Not really, it depends on a player, zywoo goes as a entry pretty often, sometimes he buys an ak (even if they can afford awp) cuz he got good spawn and he can go out and try to get opening kill. But most likely u are right, that's why like top5 in last few years are mostly awpers and sometimes rifler squeeze in.
2021-12-07 02:16
You definitely don't watch zywoo to say that, he is hard entry and rifler on some maps like inferno and dlesnt even play awp on all maps, shox take it a lot and ellte event rating : hltv.org/stats/players?event=5607&event=..
2021-12-07 15:15
at the absolute most b1t would only be around 9th, he joined late and his stats aren’t abnormal enough to warrant such a high placing

Not really sure why you think NiKo's position is doubtful. When in fact, zywoo is in the same position with no mvp right now. And way less deeper run in tournaments compared to G2.

You dont need mvp for individual level, thats why EVPS exist so that even if your team hard suck you can still earn individual awards while other players that are way worst like frozen can get an mvp if their team plays god mode only 1 toornament. The key is consistency and individual level for the top20 not team achievement, team achievement are looked into only at the end when you cant seperate individually 2 players

It's not just EVPs that matter. MVPs carry a lot more weight than EVPs. Even if it's a fluke they do matter. S1mple lost #1 last year ,one of the reasons being CIS RMR didn't have mvp then. You don't use just EVPs to suit your ranking. You can't simply disregard MVPs. Deeper runs matter too.

Not really. S1mple and Zywoo were pretty close in terms of stats. 1 more mvp would have tipped the ranking in s1mple's favour. And striker wouldn't have brought it up as a reason if it mattered for nothing. hltv.org/stats/players/compare/7998/s1mp.. The graph shows s1mple's consistency throughout the year compared to Zywoo's up and down performance. In this year, Zywoo has 0 mvp. Same goes for NiKo. There's no question of less mvps here. It's literally nada. So i don't see why Zywoo should get #2 and why NiKo is required mvp to be better placed when he his team had deeper runs compared to vitality
2021-12-08 17:19

Just go on 2020 top ranking and you will ser that zywoo had a better consistency rating and more map with 1.0+ rating, so your first arg is wrong and 6 vs 3/4 mvp would have still been is zywoo's favor. And why are you still talking about niko that has same stats as hobbit (1.19 rating) when zywoo is literally 1.30. Niko has to win mvp to overcome hobbit, while sh1ro even with 8 mvp is too far away from zywoo in terms of stats to be top2, and btw 1.08 impact against top10 (4th from his team)

I just linked you the graph itself #185 . Check the drop off between March 20 and Jun 20. Zywoo wasn't consistent throughout the year. He was not that great in the first half of the year and people disregarded him even from top 5 then. Only in second half of the year did he pick up pace. Atleast be mindful of what you argue man. Zywoo had many things going for him for that #1, consistency through out the year wasn't one among them. #176 NiKo beats hobbit in big events and lan ratings by a mile. Heck, NiKo rating in major is better than Zywoo's. In big events, Zywoo and NiKo are really close. Big events like major and other few events ofc weigh alot more than other regular tournaments. Ax1le had a better chance than sh1ro to be #2 , had he not dropped off massively in the latter half of year. So i am not gonna argue for sh1ro here. Since you talk about specifics like that. Against top 5, NiKo rating is pretty much equal to Zywoo's with massive 89.9 ADR.

hltv.org/news/31024/top-20-players-of-20.. bri just check consistency rating and % of map with 1+ rating, zywoo is literally first in this stat stop showing me useless things, also i also think that niko should be over sh1ro because he is for me a better player but way far away from zywoo, actyally you have to filter on 10 maps to find something where he is close but overall its not even close
2021-12-08 19:01
In big events ZywOo's rating is like 0.08 higher than sh1ro, he is just so above him Gambit's duo are very close to NiKo and they have 2 more MVPs than him, and possibly same amount of EVPs edit: for context: Big Events: hltv.org/stats/players?startDate=2021-01..

I am not contesting about the rating here. In rating Zywoo is ahead,no doubt about that. What i'm talking about is the number of mvps each player has. Zywoo has 0 now. You need to have atleast 1 to actually make it reasonable to place above other better achieved players. NiKo has 0 mvp, just like Zywoo. When you casually place Zywoo at 2nd place on rating alone, why is NiKo required to have mvp for 3rd place with that logic when his team had deeper runs in the year compared to vitality. Not to mention NiKo major rating > Zywoo rating. It just seemed absurd to read him say ,NiKo needs 1 mvp to place better when he had Zywoo at 2nd place. One more thing , NiKo against top 5 rating almost similar to Zywoo's against top 5 in 2021. hltv.org/stats/players/3741/niko?startDa.. hltv.org/stats/players/11893/zywoo?start.. In Big Events as well, it's almost similar but NiKo with better ADR hltv.org/stats/players/3741/niko?startDa.. hltv.org/stats/players/11893/zywoo?start..

The difference is this: ZywOo has 1.28 in whole 2021, and 1.31 in big events sh1ro has 1.25 in whole 2021, and 1.22 in big events. ZywOo without doubt put a better performance than sh1ro with almost 0.10 more rating in the biggest events of the year. There shouldn't even be a doubt that he was better than sh1ro. sh1ro can still get top2 because of his MVPs, but 2 of them were in lower tiered events, so I aren't think that. When the difference between NiKo and Gambit duo is: NiKo 1.21 in 2021, and 1.18 in big events Ax1le 1.18 in 2021, and 1.18 in big events (Their rating difference is only 0.03, but in big events their rating is the SAME) Hobbit 1.18 in 2021, and 1.16 in big events (The gap is very close, much closer than the gap between ZywOo and sh1ro). When the gap is VERY close, then having 2 MVP is going to worth more than having 0.03 better rating.

As i said before, i wasn't contesting about the ratings. As for your " 2 of them low tier" , IEM CIS wasn't filled with tier 2. "NiKo 1.18 in big events" Not really sure what you're seeing. NiKo is ahead of hobbit and ax1le by a mile in big events. hltv.org/stats/players/3741/niko?startDa.. hltv.org/stats/players/8528/hobbit?start.. hltv.org/stats/players/16555/ax1le?start.. NiKo is far ahead in LAN rating as well hltv.org/stats/players/3741/niko?startDa.. hltv.org/stats/players/8528/hobbit?start.. hltv.org/stats/players/16555/ax1le?start..

NiKo by far the best rifler in the world and his impact shows it. Tough for him when it’s awp meta. I really think G2 could thrive if they find consistent main awp and NiKo can secondary awp on CT side. NiKo 3, don’t bring that baiter sh1ro crap in here. Gambit got figured out very quickly this year, they won’t last.

Top 5 arguably, but top 6-10 would be a nice position. I think the rest of Navi, Gambit, and G2 deserve more than him.
