2018-2020* and it is not something worth noting

Good point, dupreeh had a streak of 4 consecutive appearances on top 20, Magisk had 3. Because of this, device gets the top spot in the number of appearances on top 20 as dupreeh was previously tied with him.

Ukraine left cis in 2018 while Latvia was never a part of it so Ukraine was considered cis before and it just stays that way now

He speaks russian in game and is in a CIS team, but latvia isnt really part of CIS I believe.

"- CIS dominated this year's top 20 with 35% (7 players) from CIS countries (all of them inside top 10)" But EU have 8 players in top20

Guess cuz there's only 3-4 relevant CIS teams.

Ok, and what about it? Does it change the fact that EU has more players in top20?

Of course not, lmao. Just highlighting that there were only 5 CIS teams in Top20 Rankings, and qualitatively, they have done better than any other region in 2021 Tier-1 CSGO. EU had 3x more teams in Top20 but 1 more player in Top20, that's crazy.

Tbh I wouldn't look at top20 teams cuz few of these teams aren't T1 and had no chance for top20 players. CIS have 3 T1 teams EU have 6, maybe 7.

Yeah, sorry man. Should've gone for Russian players or russian speaking players instead for this to make sense

But what would it change? 8 is still bigger than 7.

My point was, if only looking for players from a particular country, Russia got the most appearances in top 20. Edit: And as most of CIS, including Russia, is part of Europe, I felt like the fact about CIS was more like "which part of Europe dominated", if you get what I mean. Like there's also Scandinavian players and Middle-European players.
