Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg is #7 on our Top 20 players of 2014 ranking presented by Xtrfy. Throughout the year he was always one of the main reasons for NiP's success and he had MVP-worthy performances at DreamHack Summer and DreamHack Winter.

Now practically a 10-year veteran at the very top level of Counter-Strike, Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg made his name in CS 1.6 back at WEG Season 2 in 2005. He has been one of the world's best players every year since, including 2013 - the first full year of CS:GO - when he was named 2nd on our Top 20 players ranking.

We described some of his history on that occasion, as well as his performance at Copenhagen Games 2013 which still stands as the best individual tournament effort in CS:GO history.

While his Ninjas in Pyjamas dominated the first half of 2013, they were brought down to earth in the second half by VeryGames, and at the very end by fnatic who snatched the DreamHack Winter trophy right in front of their noses.

Going into 2014 NiP weren't considered the number one team in the world, and that notion was only strengthened when they came second to Titan in their first event of the year, DH Stockholm.

f0rest was also no longer considered the second best player in the world as Richard "shox" Papillon was dominating in the French team, and that also didn't change after DreamHack Stockholm even though the Swede played well.

f0rest was the second best fragger in the team at that event, he contributed in the most rounds for NiP (71.4%) and had actually put up a good fight against Titan, but none of that was enough for them to win.

The Ninjas then went into the first $250,000 event of the year, EMS One Katowice, looking for redemption and a way back to the very top.

They looked impressive at the start, making light work of 3DMAX and LDLC clashes in the group stage. They lost the first map against compLexity in the quarter-final, but then moved past them as well.

f0rest wasn't dominating but he played well in every match, including the semi-final against dignitas where he had a MotM performance on map two (20:12, 1.39 rating, 4 entry kills, POV).

But then the team crumbled in the final against Virtus.pro and the Ninjas saw another big title slip away.


Virtus.pro were too strong for NiP in the Katowice final

f0rest ended up with a 1.16 rating, second in the team, and was one of the most important factors on their road to another major final. He was particularly good in the entry killing department, having a 31:16 score in first duels (0.15 per round with a 66% success rate).

But even the 2nd place finish in Katowice was enough to propel NiP back to the #1 spot in our April world ranking as their main rivals Titan fell in the group stage.

The Ninjas justified this placing at their next event, Copenhagen Games, where they snatched their first title of 2014 and got revenge against the Poles in the grand final.

f0rest was looking like an MVP candidate as they went through the playoffs, with great performances against ENCE, Reason and dignitas. He went into the final as NiP's top rated player, but he then inexplicably disappeared in the big match and scored a kill in only 28 of 79 rounds.

Nevertheless, the team still managed to mount a comeback after a first map loss, while he fell to being the third highest rated in the team at the end of the tournament (1.15).

At their next event, SLTV StarSeries IX Finals, NiP were unable to get another title as Natus Vincere showed up in better form.

It also didn't help that f0rest was very ineffective against the Ukrainians, both in the upper semi-final and in the grand final, and he ended up with a below average rating for the first time in his CS:GO career (0.95).

It wasn't all that bad though, as he did manage to contribute a lot in their battle through the lower bracket against Virtus.pro and Titan, including a Man of the Match performance against the French rivals on map two (27:14, 1.55 rating, POV).

On the next occasion the Swedes once again made it to the big stage match at DreamHack Summer, although not before jumping over some tough obstacles in the playoffs in form of three-map series against Titan and HellRaisers.

f0rest already showed great form in the group stage, getting the Man of the Match recognition against Epsilon as NiP topped shox's team to come out 1st (27:10, 1.92 rating, POV).


Showed great form at DH Summer

However, it was the quarter-final against Titan where he shined the brightest, playing at the top of his game and putting up Man of the Match performances in both map wins – Nuke (32:18, 1.72 rating, 5 entry kills, POV) and Dust2 (25:18, 1.39 rating, 6 entry kills, POV). He ended up getting a kill in 78% of NiP's round wins in that series, clearly being the main reason they bested their longtime rivals.

He then had a solid series against HellRaisers, without as much direct impact, except on the third map where he ended up topping the scoreboard with 26:17 (1.29 rating, POV).

And finally this time he provided the needed contribution in the grand final against Na`Vi as well, especially with the performance on the second map Train that went into overtime (34:24, 1.40 rating, 6:0 entry score, VOD).

After three tournaments in which he helped NiP get to the final and then disappeared, he finally provided the complete package at DreamHack Summer and earned himself the MVP claim for the second year in a row.

After five finals in as many tournaments, NiP eventually had to stumble and that happened at ESEA Season 16 Finals where they lost to both compLexity and Virtus.pro and ended up 5th-6th out of eight teams.

It wasn't due to f0rest's performance though, as he played well in every series and ended up with the team's highest 1.15 rating.

Despite that poor placing, Ninjas in Pyjamas still claimed the number one spot in our July world ranking.

However, as the next event, Gfinity 3, rolled around at the start of August, NiP failed to break into the top four for the second time in a row. They displayed very shaky results from the start, barely making out of the group stage only to be easily disposed of by their previously regular customers dignitas in the quarter-final.

f0rest recorded a below average rating for the second time in his career (0.97), although it wasn't due to any notable underperformances. He did fail to make an impact as NiP lost to Epsilon and iBUYPOWER in the group stage, but otherwise he did well and even put up the most resistance against the Danes in the playoffs, so the average rating was just about the right representation of his contribution.

While those last two events were quite a bad sign for NiP, they still went into the next major – ESL One Cologne – as the favorites.

The unconvincing play continued and they lost to Epsilon in the group stage, but nevertheless the Ninjas powered through to the playoffs with a win over HR. They kept powering through with 16-14 map-three wins over Cloud9 and LDLC all the way to the final, and  there they finally won their first major ever with yet another close 16-13 map-three win over fnatic.


f0rest wasn't spectacular in Cologne, but his contribution was crucial

During this heroic achievement NiP didn't rely on f0rest to produce big numbers, as he was relatively quiet throughout the tournament and he ended up with an average 1.01 rating overall.

However, he did contribute on several important occasions, such as the third map vs. Cloud9 in the quarter-final (25:23, 1.08 rating, 6 entry kills, T-side POV) and more importantly – the grand final.

He ended up with second best 1.10 rating in the series against fnatic and contributed in an incredible 83% of round wins with a kill or assist. Even though he finished the third map with a 21:21 score, he had an amazing second half CT-side that led NiP to come back from a 6-9 deficit and clinch the title (18:6, 1.95 rating).

But NiP's troubles didn't disappear after this big triumph. Instead at their next event, DreamHack Stockholm #2, they even failed to make it through the group stage.

Paired up with LDLC, Titan and ALTERNATE, the Ninjas lost to both of the refreshed French squads and for the first time in the team's history didn't make it into the playoffs.

They fell even further down at ESWC, where they were once again stopped in the group stage only this time with three losses – against HellRaisers, Titan and a last-minute tournament addition French side Platinium.

During this turbulent period f0rest was not underperforming, as actually he and his superstar colleague Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund were the only ones putting up above average numbers in the team.

In the meantime NiP also missed out on FACEIT Season 2 Finals and Fragbite Masters 3 Finals due to losses online, so something was obviously not working anymore.

So before the next major rolled around and for the first time in the team's history, the Ninjas made a roster move. It came in form of Robin "Fifflaren" Johansson's retirement, while to replace the longstanding member they picked Mikail "Maikelele" Bill who had been a free agent for a while.

DreamHack Winter came only a few weeks later, and the Ninjas started off great while f0rest put in one of his best performances of the year in the opening win over Planetkey (26:9, 4 assists, 7 entry kills, POV).

He wasn't that good in the next match though, as they lost to LDLC in the battle for their group's first place when he had a disappointing 15:27 performance with 10 entry deaths.

But they made it to the playoffs with a close 16-13 win over ESC, and then f0rest had one of his most amazing performances of the year.

He ended up with a 51:22 score in the quarter-final series against HellRaisers (1.76 rating), while contributing with a kill or assist in 27 of the 32 rounds NiP won. The second map performance was particularly flashy as he completely shut down the Ukrainians by posting a 30:11 score (2.18 rating).

f0rest's 2nd map POV vs. HellRaisers at DH Winter

Although he didn't repeat that in the semi-final against Virtus.pro, he still made decent impact especially on the first map which ended in double overtime – 39:31 (1.24 rating).

NiP had thus made it to their fourth major final in a row, but instead of their second triumph they saw a 15-13 advantage on the third map slip away and they ended up with their third disappointment.

f0rest was decent in the big match, with a number of important rounds for a 1.04 rating in the series. He even contributed the most in NiP's round wins, but on the other hand he had an 8:20 entry duel score, which definitely helped their opponents more than his team.

Nevertheless, his overall tournament performance was a big positive and he was even selected for the fan MVP award on our site. He ended up with team's best 1.15 rating and contributed with a kill in 72% of the rounds NiP won, clearly the team's star at the event.

Why is he the 7th best player of 2014?

Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg was one of the main reasons NiP made it to almost every final in the first half of the year and to every final of the three majors. Even though he had less impact in some other tournaments, he was always contributing in some way.

The MVP performance at DreamHack Summer was the highlight of f0rest's year, while he also played great at EMS One Katowice and DH Winter where NiP ended in 2nd place.

He was less influential during their biggest title run at ESL One Cologne, but he also made impact there especially on the last map of the tournament. Inversely, during Copenhagen Games where the Swedes won their first title, he contributed a lot to getting to the final but then disappeared in the big match.

That was somewhat of a reoccurrence for him as it happened on several occasions in grand finals, but he also had a number of good performances so he ended up with an average 1.02 rating in big matches. Though in the end there were three NiP players who performed better than him in those semi-finals and finals.

An important aspect he stood out in throughout the year was his play on the Terrorist side, where he had a 1.01 rating, ranking 3rd of all players.

In the end his MVP-worthy performances at DH Summer and DH Winter, as well as direct impact in NiP's other title and grand final runs, pushed him up to 7th place, but he couldn't go any further as he wasn't the team's star overall and he even ended up NiP's fourth ranked player in big matches.

His play on Nuke, however, was exemplary as he had a 1.21 rating over the 13 occasions he played the map ranking 4th overall.


What is your take on Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg's performance in 2014? Is the 7th place the right one for him?

2015-01-15 09:02
i disagree. Pasha has been carrying VP through the earlier periods when the team just formed and continues to perform on both online and lan tournaments. I would say he would be either the 2nd, if not top player of the team and deserves to be above snax in terms of the ranking
2015-01-15 13:39

If you compare to the whole year, yes. And im a huge fan of f0rest, as well shox. Pasha not as much but he is a favorite because of his personality. What I'm trying to say is that I'm not that biased as everyone else.
2015-01-14 19:27

Of course they are, who the hell is killing the logic here , its you. GTR and Pasha were overall a lot more consistent than both Shox and Forest. GTR's consistent frags were so much more superior to forest and Pasha carried VP a lot more than Forest did. The difference in stats, showing up in crucial moments and overall consistency is so obvious that people actually claiming that Shox and Forest deserved better sports are brain dead

Expected something around this places for f0rest.. People continue to expect him at top3 because of his name when reality he's been a shadow of the player that he can be. In one game he goes all out, delivers what people expect from him, but then he does nothing in the next 5 games, yet people only keep in their memories that beast game that he had.

that's almost correct, except that get_right will be abolve JW/Pasha. Get_Right was his team's carry in the first half of the year and performed well at most other tournaments, especially stepping it up when it mattered. maybe he will get up to 3rd place, but that depends on how kennyS' performance is rated... JW on the other hand had a great year, but never was the teams best player when they won tournaments, mostly not even their 2nd best. Pasha was amazing in a few tournaments, and almost non existent in others. I still think this should put him slightly above JW, because of the impact his performance had on his team's success. in the end it should be #1 Flusha/Snax #2 Flusha/Snax #3 KennyS/get_right #4 get_right/kennyS #5 Pasha #6 JW

2015-01-15 08:31
U're wrong dude, I'm a big fan of f0rest since long time, but he is one of the most overrated players nowadays. This year wasn't his best, I'm sure he can do better, but for now he definately deserved the 7th spot

Looking at his LAN stats, it wasn't that good year for him. Hopefully 2015 will be better. Comparing his 2013 stats to 2014, it looks pretty bad. He was constantly getting 1.2 or more, and now it's pretty much less than 1.2
2015-01-14 19:30
kids mad because pasha aka "he's low because he's losing mm with subs" will be higher than f0rest, KRiMZ etc. xD deal with it, pasha was a beast in 2014 - top 5 player
2015-01-14 19:30

+1
2015-01-14 20:08
Yup that's a good point..... playing CT is much easier....you need to hold spots....its the T side which decides the effectiveness .....need to check all angles and corners with the burden of timer at ur head.....in CS 1.6 too f0rest shined as a T player.....Well balancing cs go is out of way.....Valve needs to do that...but more emphasis and credit should be given to the harder T side for the ranking.....mowing down entire t team as a CT while holding a fixed spot will give you much better stats....so next years list should give due wightage to both sides
2015-01-14 21:36
lol 7 never thought i would see f0rest so low on a list
2015-01-14 19:48
and what place he is supposed to have since for half a year played NIP weak cs and weren't they on the half of championships? apart from that the 1.09 rating isn't also doing frenzy. Good choice :)
2015-01-14 19:51
Even with a poor performance for half the year, they achieved more than VP
2015-01-14 19:54
how come? after all VP all through the year almost in every championships was in leading top 3:) change the dealer. :D
2015-01-14 20:09
As far as I remember, NiP won three minor tourneys, made it to three out of three major finals and won one. Clearly better than VP.

Great read and more or less expected. Its fun though that some here can say that he is overrated when he have been a top 10 player for 10 years now. How is that overrated? Well, if you think he is the ultimate god and should always be first or something then you are delusional. Always enjoy to see him play and can have that one round, match or tournament when he is just insane, those are the moments I personally care for and hope he can have some of those again in 2015!

Well, Sweden is the CS nation. 6/8 of the major finalist teams have been Swedish. Besides, shox haven't been himself this year. f0rest performed better although he never reached his peak either.
2015-01-14 20:24
first question who is shox compare to forest
2015-01-15 12:47
This is "Top 20 players of 2014" not overall performance of all the career. Shox and his team had better results than forest.

2015-01-14 21:04
I dont think the Tournaments have been properly normalized for their importance...... Every star player has the highest motivation for the majors and they are not pumped up for smaller tournaments, (mainly in the last quarter of the year which mostly fnatic won)....these tourneys did not have so much impact on the CS-GO scene so this ranking is not justified as F0rest performed at his best in most of the majors and was the reason they reached to finals.....Performing at a major should be given way more weightage than on a smaller tourney(no disrespect)......its like in any game.....u participate in all tourneys but want to be at ur best at the world cup....
2015-01-14 21:05
Well that's not entirely true Forest was just ok at Cologne which is a major and he had his best performance of the year at dreamhack summer, which is a really minor tournament
2015-01-14 21:12
I think his overall performance in majors still is worthy of a top 5 ranking...... lets see how was the performance of the remaining 6 players in majors....i know majors are not the only ones taken into account but the prestige and motivation is certainly highest in majors....
2015-01-14 21:22
Well you will have gtr, snax, pasza and flusha who have played better at major than forest :)
2015-01-14 21:30
#236 Dude, Majors are given more weightage... Just check the major stats Forest is just 3.32 sharing bottom with JW. And in small tourneys and other showmatches HLTV think that JW> forest so they put forest at 7...
2015-01-15 02:47
This ranking is really fuckedup , if they put JW after kennyS i'm gonna kill myself .
2015-01-14 21:06
"Throughout the year he was always one of the main reasons for NiP's success" That explains alot guys , NiP didn't win alot of tournaments , unlike last year in 2013 , they won 65% of them , in 2014 they had a really bad time , this ranking takes in the account of TEAM's achievements , so don't be surprised if you saw kenny after him , fnatic won some majors , so they got ranked up , but we all know the truth about everysingle player , kennyS is on top , f0rest is the second , and GTR is 3rd . Guys before any of you comment on this , please : "Read the FUCKING ARTICLE" , thank you :'>
2015-01-14 21:09
"kennyS is on top , f0rest is the second , and GTR is 3rd ." In terms a pureskill you mean ? And what's the timeframe about that statement ?

NiP didn't win alot of tournaments but they were still the most succesful team last year. but we all know the truth about everysingle player , kennyS is on top , f0rest is the second , and GTR is 3rd. this is just your biased opinion.gtr was better last year without any doubt.they are from same team with same achievments so only stats are important in this comparsion and guess what? thats the reason why he will be before f0rest

"An important aspect he stood out in throughout the year was his play on the Terrorist side, where he had a 1.01 rating, ranking 3rd of all players." i think the ranking should consider 60% t score and 40 % CT score as it is well known playing as CT is much easier than t and cs go is too ct sided.....players who shine at t-side are in my opinion the better fit for this list.....next years list should take this into account....
2015-01-14 21:44
It's so ironic lmao, first you guys complain that creator of these rankings is bias towards swedes, now you're complaining that forest isn't top 3 when #7 is exactly where he should be. People saying forest > pasha are absolutely delusional, pasha not only has better stats with riffles, he also is an elite sniper as well, i want to see his pistol stats as well because forest is only #10, Pasha was also huge in big tourney's consistently at the top with snax. Stop all the fanboy shit and just deal with the facts you babies.

Dunno why people are so angry, HLTV rankings goes off statistics right? How can you put a player higher then another when they are statistically lower, makes no sense to me why people try to argue that. For example its like saying the best player in the best team has to be the top1 player in the ranking, which in most cases might be correct but not all. Other players could have better numbers statistically overall this year, therefore get placed higher.
2015-01-14 21:50

2015-01-14 21:54
The level of bullshit in this ranking is getting way too damn way. Incoming joke of the year: 1- KennyS 2- JW 3- Flusha If being MVP in 50% of the majors doesn't push you in the top 3 at least, I have idea no how you can get in. Unless you need to be a main AWPer to deserve this right.
2015-01-14 22:05
You probably didn't read the article or maybe you are too dumb to understand it, right?
2015-01-14 22:45
I did read it all (and not only the last section to get their explanation) to make sure I didn't miss anything important. But it simply confirmed what I was thinking, he played decent if not really good in almost all competitions, carried his team several times. That's one of the most consistent player on the scene (top3 ez), he his versatile, any map, any side, getting entry kill or clutches. If you could tell me what players like kennyS, JW, flusha or snax do better (and don't tell me they are better AWPer because they get more kills), maybe I could start believing this rankings makes some sense.
2015-01-14 23:18
If you could tell me what players like kennyS, JW, flusha or snax do better, maybe I could start believing this rankings makes some sense. just look at their individual stats.it isnt that hard or is it? you can clearly see how did these players perform and if you rly want to claim that f0rest performed better last year than kennys who had the best stats last year,you are blind or biased as hell
2015-01-14 23:39
How can people be so blind and believe only in "individual stats". The role of an AWP is to get more kills than the rest of the team and to survive. To get a first kill when someone tries to pick or when the AWP plays a bit aggressive and surprises a player. Their stats will always look better because that's their role. Furthermore, in top teams the whole team is trying to make life easier for AWPers because that's a good way to win. Sacrificing themselves if they must, playing with a pistol if you can put an AWP on the main AWP. Consequently, AWPers, most of the times, have better stats than everyone because 5 players are participating for the stats of a single player. And for indivual stats, and if that's the only think people believe, f0rest is still far ahead of most players on HLTV from this top6 (except gtr&kennys mb). But ok, that's not only 2014. But at least we've seen f0rest being on top all year long. Have you seen snax or flusha on top the all year long ? No, they've been dominating for a few months when their team was on top. f0rest was doing fine even when NiP wasn't in a good shape. And actually, that's almost the same for shox. I feel like this ranking is selecting players being extremely good for a short period.
2015-01-15 02:02
where did i actually argue about flusha or snax? i only said that kennys,without ANY FREAKING DOUBT was the best individual player last year.he was insane and tbh his awp playstyle is completely different from how did you describe awp role in general... but you should ralize that there are another kind of stats than k/d.for example clutches(where f0rest was far behind flusha),entry kills etc etc.just wait for another topics and then compare it with f0rest. and there is one more thing.f0rest was maybe more consistent than players who will be before him but that doesnt mean that he was better in general or that he was more important for his team since every tournament has different priority and every match(groupstage vs semi/final) has different weight.
2015-01-15 09:08
Don't you think that kennyS performance might have something to do with his team helping him? Not everything is visible on screen you know. He's doing fine, but when looking at all criteria to evaluate a player, you'll see that he's missing a few things because he's mostly playing AWP. Honnestly, I'm hardly convinced that flusha got more clutches than f0rest over the entire year, or maybe the stats are biaised because flusha got much less attempts and the % looks better. f0rest is still one of the best clutchers on the scene right now. And to finnish, being a beast during 3 months and almost invisible the rest of the year doesn't make you better than someone who, on average, has been better all year long. But it looks just like I said before "I feel like this ranking is selecting players being extremely good for a short period.".
2015-01-15 11:31
if you actually followed titan last year,you would know that only kennys and apex performed well last year.f0rest had much better team around him.i get your point about "Not everything is visible on screen you know" but it isnt titans case at all.whole their game depended on kennys and his entry kills and he was the only factor why they played atleast decent... about flusha vs f0rest and clutches.just wait for topX topic about flusha and you will see.f0rest isnt bad clutcher at all but he was behind flusha last year. and about the last article...again i didnt try to compare f0rest with flusha or snax but mainly with kennys and honestly,its just impossible. hltv.org/?pageid=247&playerid=7167&event.. hltv.org/?pageid=247&playerid=29&eventid.. btw snax had only 2-3 "bad" lan event last year and was beast on majors so i wouldnt say that he performed good only for 3 months and almost the same goes for flusha.im not saying that they deserve better place than f0rest but they had great whole year,definitely not only 3 months
2015-01-15 12:31
Titan know that kennyS is key, and consequently they build their game around him and do their best so that HE gets the kills. Indeed, kennyS also got some nice clutches/actions, but the team highly contributed to his success. That's probably even more important for Titan/kennyS than for Fnatic/JW.
2015-01-15 13:06
you only proved my point...kennys was more important for his team than any any other player for his team and his stats were incredible last year.thats the reason why this player deserve to be before for example f0rest... and tbh i expected him atleast in top5(even top3).i dont think that its fair to put him on 6th place only bcs of his was mediocre last year
2015-01-16 12:35
You still don't understand. Yes kennyS is good, but moslty because his team helps him to be good. But I agree that he deserved to be higher ranked than #6, but apparently they consider finales > semi > quarter> *. That's so narrow minded... Feels like this DH Winter wasn't a good enough lesson for them with the real finales in quarter finales.
2015-01-16 13:24
i hardly disagree with: Yes kennyS is good, but moslty because his team helps him to be good. again.he carried them almost alone and only apex was able to help him somehow.how his team helped him in his one man rushes and entry kills? nowise while f0rest had gtr and friberg.also xizt played decently... again.kennys wasnt good bcs of his team.he was good bcs he was able to outplay other players by himself.im pretty confused since im not even his fan and you are from france and we have completely different opinion:D
2015-01-16 13:55
How they helped him? For instance making sure he gets an AWP as much as possible ? Providing valuable information, protecting him etc.
2015-01-16 14:04
did you even follow them and their playstyle? kennys was the rusher.he was the guy who went first and got kills.how his team helped him in that?okay they maybe threw fb but thats it.i could do that aswell.no info or protection since he goes always first.just nothing from his team. from your post i would think that you talk about gtr bcs in his case its rly like that.he is lurker and he has good stats bcs of his team but kennys case is actually exactly the opposit
2015-01-16 14:10
GTR gamestyle requires timing and information sometimes, but try it and you'll find out. Radar does a pretty good job as well. To make it simple, give an m4/ak to kennyS, he suddenly becomes a normal player if not less. Without the AWP that his team helps him a lot to keep/rebuy, he wouldn't get all this entry kills end stuff, do you get what I mean now? Also, don't you think having your team saying "he usually plays in that position", or "he reacts this way after this happens" helps you a lot to peek/prefire the right position ? Also, players like f0rest and shox are more valuable, in my opinion, because they can play any weapon and still be really good with it.
2015-01-16 14:49
GTR gamestyle requires timing and information you only proved my point since kennys was the best entry fragger which is the most difficult role... To make it simple, give an m4/ak to kennyS, he suddenly becomes a normal player if not less. in another words:give him less credit because of favourite weapon? so riflers who arent able to hit freaking doors at de_dust2 with awp are more important now? Also, don't you think having your team saying "he usually plays in that position" man he is freaking pro player.do you rly think that he doesnt know that without his team mates? and the thing that he usually goes first even proves my point more since he is the one who scouts for positions. Also, players like f0rest and shox are more valuable, in my opinion, because they can play any weapon same as above.only bcs they play with different weapon means that they are more valubalbe? who is more valuable fo team? guy who is able to play with every wepapon or the guy who is abl to take -2/-3 every round with awp?
2015-01-17 02:07
>>man he is freaking pro player.do you rly think that he doesnt know that without his team mates? and the thing that he usually goes first even proves my point more since he is the one who scouts for positions. xD As a matter of fact, kennyS isn't as experienced as you think, there is a reason he got kicked a year ago. He improved, certainly, but he is still far behind his teammates when it comes to that. And believe me, the role of an entry fragger isn't to "scout", he's supposed to have an idea where the ennemy can be and tell he'snt there, but not the opposite. >>who is more valuable fo team? guy who is able to play with every wepapon or the guy who is abl to take -2/-3 every round with awp? The first without any doubt, because he can do his job in any circumstance, even the hardest.
2015-01-17 11:41
kennyS isn't as experienced as you think im casual player and even i know positions on maps and who from teams cover which spot.srsly he knows that without team mates for sure The first without any doubt, because he can do his job in any circumstance, even the hardest. so for you player who will have average stats 1.11 will be better and more valuable for team than awper with average stats 1.25 only bcs he is rifler? this is probably the stupidest opinion which i have ever seen.sorry
2015-01-17 12:03
And so you think it's simply "this player plays this spot"? It is far more complicated than that because a good player can almost be anywhere, all the more when combined with nades. And yes, it's better to have solid riflers than a great AWP. Proof: Titan. They are supposed to have the best AWP, but they can't win. Why? Because they lack riflers or players that are solid and versatile (but that's probably not the only reason). AWPers always have better stats, otherwise they really suck. Playing AWP and having better stats doesn't mean you are making your team win. People should stop worshiping AWPers because they get better stats and look impressive. There is a reason why NiP dominated for a while without a real AWP player. ;)
2015-01-17 13:25
do you know why nip dominated so long? because they had 1st,2nd,6th and 11th best player last year...do you rly think that they needed dedicated awp player with this squad? btw there were a lot of game changes since then.why do you think that nip took dedicated awp player instead of fiflaren?look at navi,nip,dignitas,ldlc,fnatic.every team has awp player. btw kennys played rly well with rifles aswell and was the most succesful entry frager.my point still stand...he performed much better than f0rest last year and he is deservedly before him.
2015-01-17 15:45
Honnestly, I don't feel like NiP is doing really better than with Fifflaren, and Maikelele is far from being impressive, most of the time, gtr and f0rest are still doing most of the job.
2015-01-17 16:36
first lan tournament with maikelele(major)=second place right after their slump. its pretty good in my eyes and maikelele made a lot of huge plays that tournament. and yes i agree with you that gtr and f0rest are still doing the job+they have friberg but who got kennys? only apex.the rest of his team played rly mediocre last year
2015-01-17 17:54
Finales with Maikelele, great! They won the previous major with Fiffy and also went into finales the 2 others majors. Honnestly, I don't see any improvement for a team that focuses on majors.
2015-01-17 18:06
how long did they play with maikelele before dh? it was their first lan tournament with player without experience on big stage.what did you actually expect?that they will beat every team 16:0? last major which they won was completely different bcs of vote system and new maps.i dont want to take anything from nip here but honestly there were a lot of random things
2015-01-17 18:29
WP f0rest!
2015-01-14 22:06
Can't believe you people ranked snax ahead of f0rest..
2015-01-14 22:14

2015-01-14 22:14

2015-01-14 22:32
Pasha, Flusha, snax and JW > f0rest? Now, that IS a joke. First rank I don't agree with on this list.

2015-01-14 23:58
omg I dont want to say bad words, but how is possible, Forest with 3-major finals to be 7 ?!?!?!!? He deserved minimum top 5. So only k/d raiting is important ? He played good whole year, Krimz did amazing games about 3 mounths and he is so close to for1eSt.
2015-01-15 00:09

2015-01-15 08:32
If pasha was rank 15 or something like that nearly nobody would have complained. Now that he will be in the top6 everybody is going crazy like "ofc he is better than f0rest, look at his amazing stats in 2014".. nobody would have said that if pasha wasn't ranked top6.
2015-01-15 02:01
GTR KennyS JW Flusha Pasha/Snax s1mple Top6 ez lyfe

You da real MVP
2015-01-15 09:27
Geez no wonder the analysts think so poorly of the CS GO community. The statment you guys are making in defense of forest, friberg and Shox make no sense. None. Hell I even understand Friberg being a bit higher due to him showing up when they needed. BUt why Shox and Forest should be any higher than this ? Why at all ? Shox was really inconsistent, he faield to even touch his late 2013 level. Hell people are so stupid that they only bring up his fucking AWP ACE against VP and go OMG look the best player and similarly for Forest they just remember the flashy plays. Geez people look at the stats. Look at how they did not showe up when it was needed, Look at their lack of consistency. Just try to make sense before getting all emo and making statements like these
2015-01-15 09:39
oO its impossible(
2015-01-15 09:40
YES a Top 10 where forest is not one of the #3
2015-01-15 13:17
lol who cares, this fgt only plays surf anyways
2015-01-15 15:23
Seriously you damn bunch of fanboys. He had some great moments this year but still this is the place he deserves for sure. If you say he's top3... gg, get brain
2015-01-15 15:54
deserved
2015-01-15 16:36
Nice 7th spot. He play's 10 years on this level cs 1.6/ go. Best player on cs 1.6 ever with Neo.
2015-01-15 19:32
could not disagree more with this ranking :( He is an amazing aimer with all rifles. Pistol is just insane, good at holding spots and mowing down whole team pushes.. And he can awp
2015-01-15 21:24
expect him in top5
2015-01-16 06:37

2015-01-16 11:34
f0rp #7? :D flusha 1st would be funny. first time in cs history a known hacker is considered the "best" player. lol will motivate other hackers a lot for sure.
2015-01-16 12:22
1.09 rating not really sure if its deserved
2015-01-16 15:48
Why do people keep talking about JW? Didn't that cunt cheat her way to the top?
