Blame's impact imo is not high enough to put him above yekindar and spinx. Maybe thats partly due to his playstyle as well as Astralis being underwhelming as a whole Yekindar's impact as an entry who hard carries most of the time is just wild. Thats why i put him high above on the list Spinx too singlehandedly changed the whole Vitality dynamic which resulted in them becoming title contenders.

it would be nice to see blameF on an actual title contender team, though very unlikely now that even k0nfig is getting kicked.

Yeah. Imagine if him and ropz swapped teams. I could see him shining there with that passive playstyle

imo they are basically the same player but I think blameF is better player (just a baiter like ropz)
2022-10-01 11:16
yekindar better than spinx and blame

1. Niko 2. Axile 3. Yekindar 4. Stavn 5. Twistzz (can be changed with spinx when in form)

stavn is not in top 5 riflers form right now imo: 1. Niko 2. Axile 3. Yekindar 4. Twistzz 5. Rain/Spinx

rain is good but not better than stavn or even imo ropz or magisk.
2022-10-01 11:17
I would put K0nfig there as well (I rate him higher than BlameF). Stavn and Twistzz are also worthy, while Electronic and B1t seem to be falling off. But the only name I'd take out of the top 5 is Kscerato. Picking the best between K0nfig, Stavn, and Twistzz is difficult, so I'll just pick Twistzz as being the player on the best team, and assume it's because of his impact. So I'd say: 1. NiKo 2. Ax1le 3. Twistzz 4. Yekindar 5. Spinx (Maybe also -Spinx +one of the other two, but I'll just leave it like this because it's easier.)

No matter if you base this on recent performance or 2022 overall, Ax1Le is the best rifler, no matter how much people love niko and we all know he is the goat rifler but Ax1Le has simply been better.

Now that I am in the right state of mind, I justify NiKo being > Ax1le not because of raw numbers, but because NiKo has something that I don't feel like Ax1le has yet, Niko has some sort of fear factor to see that I feel like Ax1le doesn't have. I don't watch every C9 game tho so I can't have the best viewpoint into this.

fear factor? how about the element of surprise, i believe thats more valuable than knowing how good your opponent is.

people know how good niko is people dont know how good axile is yet, even i dont know how good this guy can be, because this is like his second year in tier1

Same could be said for NiKo during ladder half of last year. Or Goatxi right now
2022-10-01 11:26
Isnt that just because axile plays anchor positions a lot while niko takes aggressive peeks, so people need to be more careful of niko and fear him. Kinda like yekindar in the sense except yekindars way too aggressive.

Yeah, I feel like NiKo has the ability to do whatever he wants and be able to make it work, his AK is basically an awp in some games. I don't think Ax1le has really gotten this....... yet.
2022-10-01 11:28
-Yekindar +XANTARES KSCERATO too low and Spinx is not even top 10 currently.
2022-10-01 10:39

xantares nope. Skill-wise he is among top 5 but he plays most of his matches against tier 2/3 teams so you cannot count him. Only if he had gone to a tier 1 eu team
2022-10-01 10:43

Yeah because he has a shit team. This was his performance in EPL hltv.org/stats/players/7938/xantares?eve.. 3rd highest rated player.

I dont disagree with him. Xantares could play in a better team. But the thread is about best riflers. Meaning, How good they are with rifles. Hltv ranking, team ranking etc doesnt matter
2022-10-01 19:56
Good list, but imo Spinx has been a great rifler this year yes, but he has fallen a bit off, still top 10 but if we're talking current form, 1. NiKo 2. Ax1le 3. YEKINDAR 4. frozen 5. KSCERATO
2022-10-01 10:49
