To decide placements I factored stats, achievements, team, potential, influence on the game, competition of the time, and impact.
Critiques are welcome and encouraged.
1 - Simple - Top 2 player for the past 4 years, major MVP, best stats of any top player.
2 - Device - Top 5 basically his whole career, 4x majors, second best stats of any top player.
3 - Niko - Top 5 most of his career, incredible impact in all his teams, best rifler of all time.
4 - Zywoo - Dominated since 2019, but hasn’t had the impact of players like Niko and isn’t as good as device or simple, still has a long career ahead of him.
5 - KennyS - When he is at his peak he is the best player in the world but inconsistent compared to Simple and Device, and one dimensional (aggressive awping).
6 - Get_Right - May have been more dominant in his era compared to someone like KennyS or Zywoo but was against much easier competition and the sport was much less developed.
7 - Coldzera - Despite putting up high numbers his kills have much less impact compared to a rifler like Niko.
8 - Forest - Stayed in Get_Rights shadow for his whole career, completely dropped off in 2017, but has maintained Tier 2 form with Dignitas.
9 - Ropz - Carried Mouz during their mini era at the end of 2019, was the only thing Mouz had during the online era, has so much potential now that he has moved to Faze and is back under Karrigans leadership.
10 - Olofmeister - Peeked right when the game started to become more funded and more orgs began to join, but still nothing compared to the competition of today.
11 - Guardian - Lingered around the top 10 his whole career staying being Olof when he peeked
12 - Electronic - Top 5 rifler of all time, despite staying in Simples shadow his entire career he has still been able to find impact in Navi.
13 - Elige - Despite being lackluster during the online era Elige was a main driving factor for Liquids era in 2019 and has still performed throughout online play.
14 - NAF - NAF is the second best player that NA has ever produced. He is the most versatile NA player as he has awped, rifled, lurked, entried, and has maintained consistency throughout his time on Liquid.
15 - Dupreeh - Another top rifler of all time Dupreeh is Devices Electronic. He is also very versatile, sometimes going in first, sometimes lurking, etc.
16 - Fer - Fer was a driving factor for Brazil's rise to prevalence alongside coldzera and fall.
17 - Shox - Helped define the lurking role and changed the meta, when he peeks he is an incredible player.
18 - Fallen - The best Brazilian awper/igl of all time. Has incredible influence over the Brazilian scene.
19 - Magisk - Helped define what an entry player looked like during the Astralis eras.
20 - Twistzz - Another driving factor for Team Liquids 2019 run, some of the best aim of any player on this list. However, his last year on Liquid showed how one dimensional he is as a player faltering in supportives roles and dropping in form.
