i say number 4 but who knows
we know for sure that s1mple, sh1ro and zywoo will be above him. the rest of the top 8 will be a competition between ax1le, niko, broky, blame and stavn. imo he has a high chance of making it into top 5, maybe even top 4 since c9 hasn't played that much and he has much more achievements
HLTV made a fucking mess of the 2022 team rankings, so i kinda expect the same for the players ranking.
Also, the fact that its not transparent and objective underlines this.
he would be really close with blameF and Stavn tbh
ropz role will make him higher then him (thats how HLTV works)
rain will make the list
top-5 according to my calculations
First 3 spots are locked by s1mple, sh1ro and Zywoo. I would say he can finish anywhere from 4th to 10th, more likely higher than lower
I want him to 1tap like niko and lurk like ropz and clutch like old xyp9x and outplay like gla1ve and have as much util damage as aleksib and spray like classic get_right and hit flicks like monesy and peek like xantares if not kick him of course
He will probably be around top 6/7 but in truth he's below top 10ish
i would still put players like blamef and other star riflers above him
