NIP old core
Nobody mentioned Roman?????
aint no fker talkin about obo. that's how hard it hit him.
have anyone knows where Adren (kazakhs) is playing? or he just retire?
spaze. not actually a legend but a name i haven't seen in years
We can go back to 2004-2007 (omg just realized its 10 yrs from your dates), there were couple of players primed to be legends forever, but they somewhat dropped out of cs prematurely. Probably they didn't realize it will grow into such big deal and community... Names e.g. elemeNt (eoL/SK), shaGuar (Noa), KaLbl4 (M19), etc.
I respect them for playing not for money but for the love of cs.
The first EnVyUs lineup (except for shox)
Doesn't know really much about other players
Flusha, JW, Olof... Now kids will remember Olaf as the guy "bottomfragging every game in FaZe"
Also GuardiaN the only player i think deserved to win more. He was truly the "1v9"
maybe a little bit earlier then 2014 but Markeloff
ZywOo, he used to be top 1 in 2019, and controversially in 2020 as well, but where is he now? Is he still playing? I don't see him in the list of players in the stats page of HLTV, either he must be super far in obscurity or he retired or something.
Honestly every swedish player ;) (Doesn't mean that there aren't new players)
I mean Skadoodle and Xizt, I enjoyed watching it
Best cs player : abdisamed mohammed SpawN
Shahzam :' and looks like jks will soon be forgotten too, still no team
basically every player minus maybe f0rest and krimz
the harsh reality of pro e-sports is that once you fall off, you fall really low, basically beyond repair
once you reach the realization that you spent too many hours into a computer game, you are 27 and don't know what to do with your life next, while your peers are getting married and reaching high positions in their jobs, you just won't spend as many hours in that game anymore
and don't give me "BuT HiGh SaLaRy" because if you truly believe that pro players are set for life, that's way too naive
n0thing, xizt, kjaerbye, NEO from VP
and ofc from 1.6/1.5 the real legends who played for the love of cs not money etc
Fisker, vildeN, elemeNt, K4BaL, fr1$$HA, Edward, markeloff, SeDaN, cArn, dsn, Sunde and manny more.
