Jesus, everyone is different, you can win a major at the beginning of your career and then never win anything relevant for the rest of your life. s1mple was a major finalist and semifinalist at just 18 years old. ZywOo was playing FACEIT back then.
ZywOo has 2 elite-tier LAN trophies achieved in 6 years and was almost directly invited to Vitality with a good tier-1 lineup. Yall are acting as if ZywOo has won every single trophy in this game when in reality he only has ESL PRO and Rio trophy since the beginning of his career. Everything else is either A-tier or online.
s1mple had a much harder path and still managed to win much more relevant trophies at 22 like ESL NYC, ESL Cologne, two Starladders etc :)
and yeah, dont forget that they started in different times. CSGO was at its peak when ZywOo turned to pro, in s1mples time people were playing for 500$ and didnt complain. Now any kid can get picked up by NaVi because of twitch/FPL and win everything in one year (like b1t)
