Top 20 players of 2014: kennyS (6)

Kenny "kennyS" Schrub displayed a very high level of play throughout 2014, but it led to little success for his teams and therefore he ended up 6th on our Top 20 players of 2014 ranking presented by Xtrfy. He was the best fragger of the year and his MVP worthy performance led Titan to win DreamHack Stockholm, while he also played superbly at Gfinity 3 and ESEA S17.

19 year old Frenchman Kenny "kennyS" Schrub started his professional career three years ago when he joined VeryGames' CS:Source squad, and he quickly rose to stardom when the switch to CS:GO came.

After initially proving to be one of the most talented players in the game, he was removed from the squad in May 2013, and he went on to look for success in LDLC and later Recursive.

After an unimpressive end to the year he ended up in 12th place on our Top 20 players of 2013 ranking, but his Recursive squad did make it to playoffs at the first major, DreamHack Winter.

At the beginning of 2014 kennyS was in for an unpleasant surprise - his teammates had decided to merge with two Clan-Mystik players, while he was left out of the process.

He wasn't teamless long though as he joined up with Clan-Mystik together with Robin "GMX" Stahmer to fill the empty spots, and their first task was qualifying for EMS One Katowice.

After some superb performances by kennyS himself, the French team secured the spot at the first major.

They ended up in a tough group in Poland, having to make it past Natus Vincere, LGB and compLexity. But despite a win over Na`Vi spurred on by a Man of the Match performance by kennyS (25:17, 7 assists, 1.20 rating, 5:0 entry score) the French side lost to compLexity two times and failed to make the playoffs.

The 18-year-old didn't excel against the North Americans, and he even somewhat disappointed in the deciding match when he got a kill in only 12 of the 28 rounds and had a 0.84 rating.


Started the year with Clan-Mystik

He was still Clan-Mystik's best player at the event with a 1.03 rating but it was definitely not the start of the year the young Frenchman wanted.

The squad then surprisingly skipped the next big event, Copenhagen Games, and attended and won a local LAN Gamers Assembly instead.

It wasn't long after that kennyS received an offer he couldn't refuse – Titan, his former team, wanted him back to replace Richard "shox" Papillon. He of course accepted and the roster from early 2013 was reformed.

Without much time to practice they went into SLTV StarSeries IX Finals. Titan had come off from two disappointing finishes in Katowice and Cph Games, so they desperately needed a good result with the new-old lineup.

And it started well, they defeated Virtus.pro 2-0 in the opening match while kennyS had a great showing (54:33, 1.32 rating). But then the surprise of the tournament, Natus Vincere, struck them down in the upper final where kennyS didn't make much impact.

He was better in the series against NiP in the consolidation final, but it was not enough to push the team to the grand final as they ended up losing map three 3-16.

kennyS finished the event as team's second best due to the poor performance against Na`Vi (1.15 rating), but nevertheless it was a good first showing for the young returnee.

Titan were much better prepared for their next event, DreamHack Summer, as it was a month and a half later, but it didn't help them a lot.

The team lost to HellRaisers in the group stage, same as in Katowice, and instead of tipping the scales to their favor, the new addition kennyS was perhaps the worst player of the match with getting a kill in only 6 of 22 rounds.

He redeemed himself in the next match against Reason, putting in a Man of the Match performance that propelled Titan to the playoffs (32:13, 2.16 rating).

kennyS' POV vs. Reason at DreamHack Summer

But as they finished second in the group, they were drawn to meet NiP already in the quarter-final. And once again despite taking a map against the Swedes, they lost and ended up eliminated from the tournament.

kennyS played well in all three maps against the Ninjas, and was even the Man of the Match of the one they won (24:12, 1.50 rating, POV).

He ended up being the second highest rated player of the tournament with a 1.35 rating, but it was to no avail as Titan had a short campaign.


Efforts at DH Summer were fruitless

The next task for Titan was to qualify for the second major of the year, and once again kennyS helped his team do that with out-of-this-wordly numbers in the online qualifier.

In the meantime Titan had fallen down to 9th place in our July world ranking, the lowest in the team's CS:GO history.

Gfinity 3 provided a chance for them to show their worth before traveling to Cologne, and they took it. Despite losing to dignitas in the opening match, Titan went on to reach the grand final where they were stopped by Virtus.pro.

kennyS's play was of course one of the main reasons for their success, as he was the Man of the Match on no less than 6 of their 12 maps.

He started off in the group stage with near perfect play at the end of the clash with Virtus.pro, including a 1-on-3 clutch to tie the game (33:14, 1.65 rating, 21 AWP kills, POV). He also played amazingly in wins over fm-eSports (25:6, 2.05 rating) and mousesports (23:7, 1.95 rating, POV) which led Titan to finish second in their group.

1-on-3 clutch to tie the match against Virtus.pro at Gfinity 3

He continued his highlight reel in the quarter-final against iBUYPOWER with another superb display on the second map (30:15, 1.79 rating, POV) and in the semi-final in both map wins against fnatic – 23:8 (1.74 rating, POV) and 28:17 (1.57 rating, POV).

However, he couldn't keep the level up in the final against Virtus.pro, but was still one of the team's best players in the 0-2 loss.

In the end he had a 1.31 rating and was of course one of the most impressive players of the tournament while Titan showed they still have it in them to go far in tournaments.

It was a good showing ahead of ESL One Cologne, but at the big event they once again disappointed. They lost a double overtime clash against Cloud9 at the start, and after getting a 16-1 win over Vox Eminor, the Frenchmen suffered a devastating loss with the same result against dignitas, failing to reach the playoffs.

kennyS had a solid showing against Cloud9 and a Man of the Match performance against the Australians (26:6, 2.32 rating, POV), but in the deciding match against dignitas he was nowhere to be found – scoring only 4 kills and not making any impact in 14 of the 17 rounds.


kennyS had to pack up early at another major

After their second failure at a major Titan and the team's leader Kévin "Ex6TenZ" Droolans decided it was time for a change. This time, however, kennyS remained as the piece to build around while three new players were added from LDLC – Dan "apEX" Madesclaire, Hovik "KQLY" Tovmassian and Mathieu "Maniac" Quiquerez.

DreamHack Stockholm was the first event for the new squad, and it looked like they made the right move. Despite a loss to LDLC in the group stage, Titan defeated NiP, then fnatic in the semi-final and in the end got revenge on the French rivals in the grand final.

kennyS won his first and only title of the year, and was without a doubt the MVP of the tournament. He put in several Man of the Match performances, most importantly against NiP in the group (24:16, 1.24 rating, match-winning clutch, VOD) and in the second map of the final against LDLC (30:23, 1.27 rating, 22 AWP kills, VOD).


DreamHack Stockholm #2 champions

He finished with the event's highest 1.35 rating, an incredible 0.51 AWP kills per round and the most entry kills (30 total, 0.16 per round).

A month later at their second event, the new Titan didn't have such a good showing. LDLC demolished them in the upper bracket final, and then they even fell to Natus Vincere to finish in 3rd place.

kennyS was still by far the team's best player with a 1.10 rating, but even he was very ineffective in the match versus the local rivals.

But the event that mattered more to them was ESWC a few weeks later, and they came into it on the wings of two victories against LDLC in the French qualifier.

It all looked well after group stage, despite a loss to HellRaisers, as they came out in 2nd place following a dominant 16-1 win over NiP.

kennyS was per usual one of the team's best in every match, especially in the big win over the Swedes when he had a 25:6 score (2.20 rating, 7 assists, 17 AWP kills, 9:0 entry score).

kennyS' POV vs. NiP at ESWC

However, he couldn't get himself going when it mattered even more, in the quarter-final where he recorded a kill in 21 of 49 rounds, while the team fell to their new big rivals LDLC.

The team then turned their full focus to the last major of the year, DreamHack Winter. However, when it was only a few days left until the event they were hit by horrifying news of one of their star players, KQLY, receiving a VAC-ban.

Subsequently they were removed from the big tournament and weren't allowed to re-qualify with a new roster, leaving the team in despair.

As the major passed and others competed for glory, kennyS and co. decided to focus on preparing for ESEA Season 17 Global Finals, as they were allowed to participate with their coach-analyst Jeremy "ioRek" Vuillermet.

But despite kennyS's historic efforts of a 1.41 rating and 0.96 kills per round in the tournament, they only made it to 5th-6th place. He was still the best player of every series, including the win over Denial (75:42, 1.69 rating) as well as losses to fnatic and iBUYPOWER but it wasn't enough to push the team any further.

At the very end of 2014, kennyS traveled with the French national team to Serbia for the European Championship Finals, and came home with the trophy after leading the team with another MVP performance.

Why is he the 6th best player of 2014?

Individually Kenny "kennyS" Schrub was by far the most impressive player of the year, but on the other hand his great play led to barely any achievements.

His list of top three places is only four rows long – first place at DreamHack Stockholm, second place at Gfinity 3 and two third places at SLTV StarSeries IX and XI.

He made no impact at the majors and despite having good numbers to show from those events, he didn't play well in Clan-Mystik or Titan's deciding matches in Katowice and Cologne.

But nevertheless, he was the best player in his teams throughout the whole year and he played well at every event he attended. His peaks were at Gfinity 3 where he dominated on the way to the final and DreamHack Stockholm, which he crowned with an MVP performance. Furthermore, his play at ESEA Season 17 Finals was one of the best individual displays of the year.


kennyS had impressive stats but they didn't lead to much success

Overall he ended up topping the charts in many categories – he was the best fragger of the year with 0.86 kills per round, he had the most AWP kills per round (0.44), had the highest T side rating (1.15), highest success in entry duels (61%) and the most T-side entry kills (0.13 per round).

However, none of that was enough to push him higher in the ranking as it didn't lead to much success, while his best performances were at relatively smaller events. His play at the majors and the glaring underperformances in key matches there also didn't help.

But he did have more than enough impressive tournaments to get to the 6th place overall, namely DreamHack Stockholm, Gfinity 3, DreamHack Summer, ESWC and ESEA S17.


What is your take on Kenny "kennyS" Schrub's performance in 2014? Is the 6th place the right one for him?

he only won DH Stockholm this year... with KQLY so yeah he really deserves #1.. hahahah what a joke!
2015-01-15 19:26
He maybe not deserve #1 but as a player he deserves the #1 carrier of the years since he carried every single team he is in (Clan-mystik, Titan, France(LAN)).

how is someone who didn't win anything top 1? GTR shouldn't be this high, tho.
2015-01-15 19:37
ronaldo win nothink but got title " best player of 2013-2014" probably win something but not world champ (i didn't football fan tell me if i wrong alot) shox win last tournoment but only 8-th forest got 1-2 placed on all major events IMO forest > gtr cuz didn't sprey alot
2015-01-15 19:42
Ronado actually won Champions League with Real this year! :)
2015-01-15 19:48
they won Champions League he broke several records. World Cup is hard to win as a portuguese. Messi hasn't wont it either ^^ I agree that f0rest and shox should be higher but I do not think GTR deserves top 5 nor do I think kennyS should be higher than 6.
2015-01-15 19:49
Anyway, the best player in the world is Alexandre Lacazette

2015-01-16 04:05
I agree, and don't really understand the criteria of what world rank the players get this time. It is obviously not individual play since KennyS or shox should've been top1 then, both finishing outside of top5. And it does not seem to be teamplay and success since players like Happy and Friberg did not finish higher than they did. It feels like they rank JW and Flusha top5 just to bug with fnatic-haters (I do not have all the stats and numbers but fnatic couldn't have been very much more successful than NiP?). Realistic top5: 1st Shox 2nd GeT_RiGhT 3rd KennyS 4th Happy 5th JW

But then it has nothing to do with who the top players in 2014 are if the reason is simply that he has been on bad teams that never won anything important..
2015-01-15 19:47
I would say it's probably a delicate mix between the collective achievements a player has helped sculpt for his team and individual play style and rating. There are plenty of ESEA pug stars who could run over some of these top 20 players on a good day, but it wouldn't put them on this list. Of course all lists are entirely subjective as well, since a list by essence attempts to categorise and enumerate a seemingly infinite range of variables into an ordered hierarchy. It's a dull read and not related to this article, but Umberto Eco's The Infinity of Lists is really good for this subject.
2015-01-15 20:06
True that's it's a mix, but don't you think HLTV are overestimating the importance of 'team success' in this ranking? I mean, just look at the first picture in this article: Best player on dd2 Best player on inferno Best player on mirage Best player on T side Highest success rate in entry duels Most AWP kills per round Most kills per round ...

CSGO is a collective game. Individual stats doesn't necessarily makes you reach the top of the podium, as proved with kennyS. HLTV ranking is based on individual performance yes but playing big in big matches aka playoffs counts more than playing big in group stage. kennyS didn't had many chances of proving himself in such situations hence his placing in the ranking. Making him top1 would be an abominable anomaly. if only Titan had participated Dreamhack Winter and reached at least semis apEx and kennyS would be figure higher in the rank for sure. speaking of Titan, I'm curious to see KQLY condensed stats. I'm sure he would be listed in the top10 tier.
2015-01-15 21:41
No doubt he shouldn't have been #1, but surely he deserves top 5? I mean, his direct competitor, JW will now receive a higher rank, even though kenny has outperformed him in almost all aspects.
2015-01-16 00:50
Not to deflect the question, but just so you know I haven't taken part in making these rankings, though of course I stand by them. In general, I find player rankings to be too much of a pseudo popularity contest, bringing fanboys and people who just want to yell out to the front. No doubt kennys has had a massive impact on the game; if it were left to me, I would have maybe bracketed him with a [4-6] ranking, though that of course defeats the purpose of a "top" 20
2015-01-16 02:51
+1 Dont you think,this affects the minds of players ?
2015-01-16 04:58
The way I see it, even though esports is still a fledgling industry, it's big enough that the pro players have in a sense entered the "public sphere" as known personalities/celebrities. People who are in the public sphere shouldn't be affected by either rankings or what people say about them on the internet, they are 100% focused to be professionals and play their best possible game.
2015-01-16 06:45
Well,i somewhat disagree. Agreed,it is a fledging industry. But you see in out what these(atleast some of them) 17 yrs pro players behave immaturely. So IMO Professionalism is by far from being there in the current scene. To be fair with those 17-20 yr old players,they are growing.Immaturity will be there

BUT it is said in the Why is he the 6th best player of 2014? section that he (KennyS) DID NOT do well in those deciding maps! And that really means ALOT. If he had done well, they maybe could have done better on those tournaments at the end. But he didn't and doesn't deserve first spot. Best players in any team sports need support to be the best and most successful. So results are important.

You could also say that with his amazing stats he was let down by his teammates. If they had performed better they could have won more titles. Why should Kenny have to play amazingly well in every game. He's only human.

Being the best player in a 5 person game means you have the skill level capable of carrying your team to victories (like Snax, pasza, shox, jw, flusha, olofmeister & ScreaM have done). kennyS hasn't, yet, but with RpK in the lineup Titan are only going up

You can clearly see that he has a massive impact to their teams doing well. If he has an under performance his team does badly. Also he is king in entry fragging/opneing up sites. It's not just the high amount of frags, he clearly has a big gameimpact and carried his team as much as he could. But a team doesn't consist of one player.
2015-01-16 08:23
ye but this is the top player list, not top team.
2015-01-15 19:48
easy when you're never in big matches like all the other top players
2015-01-15 20:14
Deserved? No.
2015-01-15 19:20
he deserves a lot more

TOP 20 PLAYERS OF THE YEAR team doesnt fucking matter omg wtf
2015-01-15 20:43
it does tho... If a player in Austrian football league would score 120 goals in a single season and both messi + ronaldo wouldn't score more than that, Balon D'Or or "best player eu award" would still go to someone else because A) they're playing for the better team/league therefore the other players played more matches vs better teams compared to the austrian league and B) because the other players have gotten better cups (champions league, world cup, european cups etc.)!

"Kenny "kennyS" Schrub displayed a very high level of play throughout 2014, but it led to little success for his teams and therefore he ended up 6th" is this a freaking team ranking or player ranking? Who cares how far the player's team got if we're talking about player rankings?! I feel like some of the trolls on HLTV use more logic than people coming up with this ranking :/
2015-01-15 19:26

Overall he ended up topping the charts in many categories – he was the best fragger of the year with 0.86 kills per round, he had the most AWP kills per round (0.44), had the highest T side rating (1.15), highest success in entry duels (61%) and the most T-side entry kills (0.13 per round).

2015-01-15 19:27
Okay I am a bit confused here, KennYS , is doubetdly the best player in the world in 2014 for me. I mean I can try and make sense of how even his amazing frags did not make the impact necessary to push his team on the edge and how he did not show up as much in the BIG events, but you gotta realize that was mostly due to lackluster performance from others and also because how there weren't any other SuperStars in his team, so he had a lot more pressure. So given the situation he was Individually amazing, he was amazingly consistent should have been higher imo. Could be wrong , but probably not.

2015-01-15 19:27
safe to say pasha is better rifler than kennyS, seems like hltv ranking isn't only on personal skill but also about team placements in tournamets, this is why kenny is only 6, but still he should be top3 imo

to legend(i can't seem to use the reply button) it's extremely hard to judge a players stats when they're not reaching the peak competition, if you're raping kids in group stage but aren't playing in semi's and finals where almost everyone is around 1-1.10 rating then you can't judge solely off of stats, it's always going to be harder the further you go, thus the reason his stats are so inflated.
2015-01-15 19:32

"Top 20 players of 2014" - He is the one who impressed you the most and he is the one with the highest rating through the whole year with some insane almost 2.00 rating, and yet you place him 6th ? Wow... This particular place is a joke. While I agree on all the other player's placement, this one is pure bullshit.
2015-01-15 19:34
You guys always forget that your team achievments matter as well, so if KennyS would be no.1 that would be "against the rules". Even tho i think he should be higher, just look at his ratings, #1 in almost everything. Not 1st place but at least 4th
2015-01-15 19:36
Put Swag over Kioshima and said that was based on stats, even though Swag achieved nothing last year. and put Kenny at 6 and said that his individual stats with little achievement wasn't enough. WTF logic is that !!!
2015-01-15 19:34

2015-01-15 19:34
It's so dumb, it's best PLAYER 2014. Not best team results. This list is becoming farcical!
2015-01-15 19:35
+1
2015-01-15 19:48
Pretty much the same logic that put kennyS above anyone on this list so far. His individual play as the star of his team contributed to the success they had, same as swag who also played at a much higher individual level than kioShiMa. kioShiMa was only the star in Epsilon where they achieved an easy semi-final place at DH Summer and 1/4 final at Cologne, in other events he wasn't the main star of the team, while those who were have been rewarded with higher placings. By the same logic the players above kennyS were the most important to the success of their teams. Same story every year, and new people always show up and don't bother to think about it or look it up... It's not the same if you're the star of your team as you win a major, or if you're the star of your team as you win 5 events, or if you're the star of your team as you win one event, or if you're not the star of your team and you win whatever out of that. kalle had the best rating in 2011, should he have been #1? COLON was the best fragger in 2013 if we look at just individuals at big events, should he have been #1 instead of GeT_RiGhT?
2015-01-15 20:58
Do you remeber what place Kalle came on that year? Excellent articles btw

2015-01-15 19:35
This should be INDIVIDUAL performance... Don't blame him for having 3 shitty team mates...
2015-01-15 19:36
The reason for him being 6th is mentioned in the huge big article above.
2015-01-15 19:40
Swag achieved nothing but he was ranked higher than MVP of DHW candidate "Kioshima" because of stats. (which isn't that impressive)
2015-01-15 19:37
Dhw is one fucking tournament
2015-01-16 05:40
the list is based on facts,not fanboism. Get over it.
2015-01-15 19:34
There's 10 rows of facts if you scroll up, #1 in 9 meaningful statistics. Pretty sure no one else has more than 4 stats they're #1 on.
2015-01-15 19:35
The reason for him being 6th is mentioned in the huge big article above.
2015-01-15 19:42
Because his team is not up to par to compete on a high level and kennyS does well even if their team gets steamrolled? Fair enough, but in that case this isn't a list for top 20 players, it's top 20 achievements. And even then kennyS has achieved the most when it comes to individual stats.
2015-01-15 19:45

2015-01-15 19:34
I think I'm failing to understand the purpose of this list. kennyS was by far the best player of the year, and it's even quoted in the article.
2015-01-15 19:34
Yeah pretty funny :p
2015-01-15 19:37
It's like in football where Müller, Lahm and Schürrle is the best best players ... ohh wait.
2015-01-15 20:36
I don't follow soccer at all - can u explain?
2015-01-15 23:20
Germany won the World Cup this year with those players. The worlds best player (Ballon d'Or) went to Christiano Ronaldo who plays for Portugal who went out in groups. It's an analogy that agrees with you and puts it in a wider context than HLTV.
2015-01-15 23:35

You fucking kids are so one dimensional in the brain, why don't you look outside the box, not only does he have 0 achievements, he's also not playing top competition in big stages, no one has a 1.27 rating when they're palying in semi's and finals in big events, his stats are inflated like crazy because he's not playing against the best consistently, it's just not possible to judge him off of his stats, i had him ranked 5-6, you guys are just ignorant close minded fanboys.
2015-01-15 19:36
+one.
2015-01-15 19:37
Ok, and then why ranked Happy at #10, he was one of the best clutch player last year. Also Friberg, MVP of ESL Cologne first major for NiP ranked #14 ??? This is the most inconsistent list i've ever seen.

2015-01-15 19:52
"Individually Kenny "kennyS" Schrub was by far the most impressive player of the year, but on the other hand his great play led to barely any achievements." You know at least they acknowledge hes the best individual player
2015-01-15 19:36
I don't understand...this is an individual ranking right? It's about the best player, not the best team...
2015-01-15 19:38
Exactly my thoughts
2015-01-15 19:39
This is Top20 overall skill and achievement wise. KennyS could be #1 on skillwise only list.
2015-01-15 20:55
i thought "best player" means most skillful player. if this list is about success not skill (which it obv. is) it is useless.
2015-01-16 08:05
yes but this is individual list not team list, judging by teams fiflaren should be top 10

He "deserves" a much better rank but shouldn't have it cause it's true he just won 1 single tournament and it was just a 8-teams one. CS:go is still a team game.
2015-01-15 19:37
hahah l000000000l wtf
2015-01-15 19:38
How can some people disregard the fact that he didn't play enough big games and even the ones he did play he didn't play that good in. How can a player for some people be the best when he never really had an impact to go far. I could agree that he could have placed maybe 5-4 but not top 3, espacially when you know that the players that are left had bigger impact on there play and achieved way more. A player could just play all group stage matches otherwise and get really high stats before going out in a close game, or something like that. Would that player then really be the best when it never really leads to something? Too many who can't get a clue how at least this ranking works, and I think HLTV are doing a really good job with fair placements on the players. Stats isn't everything here which should have been fairly obviouse from the start. And if you have seen HLTVs previous rankings this comes as no surprise as to how it all works.

2015-01-15 19:45
Yeah, sick play by kenny. I never said in my post he isn't good.
2015-01-15 19:47
Put Kennys In Fnatic and you will see what achievements he will do -_-
2015-01-15 19:58
Thats kinda irrelevant though isn't it and only speculations. Maybe fnatic would play really bad with kennys in the team. Maybe it wouldn't work socialy, what about the language barrier? To just say put this player in this team and you'll see it will all be good is kinda kindergard thinking. Have seen good players in all sorts of sport that played good in one team but didn't deliver once they moved to a better team.
2015-01-15 20:09
I got your point but dude. but KennyS is consistent he put up +10 , +15..etc frags everygame against any small or big team. This by far the best indivdual performance after Get_Right performances on 2013 even tought that to put up stats like that in 2014 is more difficult
2015-01-15 20:41
I would say you didn't get my point. And what pl3xus said, he didn't play good or even play any BIG matches almost. If he had played all those semifinals and finals as GTR did in 2013 and still had these stats, yeah sure without a doubt he would be nr1, but he didn't. I don't think you will change your mind on this like most people in here blinded by the fact that the stats that he got was against mostly lesser teams in group stage. And no, I don't think kennys is a bad player, he is a really good player and deservers the nr6 spot.
2015-01-15 21:04
Even with less impact you can't win 16rounds for your team every game. For me he deserve a better spot at least top5 and I'm sure you'ill be with my opinion with that.
2015-01-15 21:37
Well yeah, I thought he would be 4th actually. But I can also see why he got 6, that being said, I still wanna point out I think he is a great player and obviously one of the most skilled. What I'm just tired of, not just with people not being satisfied with kennys rank, is that people try not to see the whole picture of how this ranking works. Kennys had, for this year, no chance being top3 at least, but was still one who showed us what kinda level of play he can do, just too bad he didn't have a team to back him and prove them self against better teams. Cause Kennys can only do so much on his own, and what he did he deservers he this high ranking.
2015-01-15 22:12
Well based to this ranking I can understand why he is on the 6th spot and I feel sad too for some made fanboys. He don't deserve to be n1 or n2... But I think 3 or 4th would be more fair , as an encouragement to his play during all the year. Cause It's really difficultc to keep this incredible performance during the next year
2015-01-15 23:59
Is flusha seriously going to be ranked higher then kennyS just because he plays in an insane team unlike kenny who needs to carry every game?

fanboyism is so strong... You silvers and unranked kids better read text b4 commenting... His team is responsible for his placements, if they could've done it better, he would be much higher for sure. This is most real ranking, based on all factors combined, and huge +1 for HLTV for great articles about each player.
2015-01-15 19:39
Tomi, rly. Stop licking fnatic ass. You already did enough with your "HLTV team ranking for December". Now you will put 4 of their players in top10? They didnt deserve that. Im not saying that they was very good in last few months, but hello, 2014 isnt only 5 months, its whole year, and tbh, fnatic and their players wasnt that impressive in first 7 months. You call flusha cheater, then stand by your words, or give public apologize. Dont try to make things right with licking their ass all over HLTV with your rankings. All of this become joke. If you want to do this job, do it correctly, or just leave it. TY
2015-01-15 19:39
It's not lurrpis who is doing this rankings... You have no clue how is this being done. Our lad Tgwri1s is doing all the stats and stuff...
2015-01-15 19:42
He is doing just jobs with stats. Rest of job do rest of HLTV crew together, and main word has lurppis.
2015-01-16 10:34
+1
2015-01-15 19:43
Why do you think lurppis is making the list? Have you not seen the author of every single player of the year article?
2015-01-15 20:05
I read statement of lurppis on some thread that all of you making this lists (He said: "HLTV Crew making all rankings"). Im sure that Petar is charge for statistic, but as we can see, statistic doesnt play big role here. Also instead of making top 2014 teams, he made top for december, where fnatic was top1. Still, 2014 passed, we still dont have some top teams for 2k14. No doubt that fnatic players was dominate in past few months, but hello, 2k14 is not only last few months, like i said above. Also, in every choice for the top players in every sport, its important individual stats. 2 years ago Ribery won everything, still Ronaldo won ballon d'or cuz his invdividual stats was a way better. Also, its not like kenny didnt carry his team(s) (CM and Titan) vs a lot stronger opponents. I think that should be also key factor. If we talk about best player, kenny deserved to be a lot higher, and some players, lower on list. Its about individual stats, not about team.
2015-01-16 10:33
Pretty sure he was talking about the top20 video highlights of 2014.

Deluded fanboys. This list is based on rankings and tournament ratings, kennys has 6th best stats in 2014, why the fuck are you crying? If you think of him as the best player player in csgo - nobody is holding you back. Everyone has right to own an opinion.

"However, none of that was enough to push him higher in the ranking as it didn't lead to much success" Is this best player or best team award? What does team success have to do with how good a player is? If you put kennys in ggwp.pro he would still be the sickest player in the world even though he would finish last in every tournament.
2015-01-15 19:47
Statistically KennyS is miles ahead of anyone else in this list: i.gyazo.com/36d85ce06dbf09e3595230556478.. I'd say the top5 is way too biased towards team results and major success. E: Incase you couldn't figure out KennyS is the one with 1.27 rating and top position in almost half of the statistics recorded.
2015-01-15 19:49
He deserved a higher spot
2015-01-15 19:48
Should be in top3
2015-01-15 19:48

2015-01-15 19:50
lol kenns fanboys retarded think he is top1 he isnt even top 10 this year imo he played bad in all majors excep maybe dhs so he is lucky he is here tbh snax is the best player from majors so he is will be #1!!! not kenns
2015-01-15 19:50
Individually Kenny "kennyS" Schrub was by far the most impressive player of the year, but on the other hand his great play led to barely any achievements. You are ranking players individually, not the team OMG. Achievements in CS:GO are about the team itself, the team-play and collective stuff. So there is no point at all in ranking individual players considering the lack of achievements of their team. This ranking is stupid... :x
2015-01-15 19:50
Okay I am done.
2015-01-15 19:50
well ... he deserved to be top2 at least even he didnt achieve much
2015-01-15 19:50
LOL, this chart means nothing KennyS TOP1
2015-01-15 19:50
HAHAHAHAHA again.. pasha > kennyS I read all the article.. and my question still the same.. HOW???
2015-01-15 19:50
also Get_Right > KennyS ? WTF ???
2015-01-15 19:52
So Edward instead of Pasha? lol this list...
2015-01-15 19:51
well thats a fucking laughable ranking
2015-01-15 19:51
wow. just wow hltv fails so hard proof that stats alone shouldn't be used to rank
2015-01-15 19:52
this is list must be made by a group of silvers , kenny was by far the best player of 2014
2015-01-15 19:52
I don't get it, will Pasha be in the top 5 or not even in the top 20 at all?
2015-01-15 19:52
Hmm. You have pushed for the fact that this is a individual rankingm, yet you claim he cant rank any higher because his team lets him down. I mean you write that KennyS has the best stats pretty much. I dont get it.
2015-01-15 19:52
what a joke LMAO
2015-01-15 19:52
there was already a top10 team list, this is about THE BEST player and kennyS is the best, leave team stats away from here.
2015-01-15 19:52

2015-01-15 19:55
best player in the world on nr 6 haha
2015-01-15 19:55
he had by far the best individual performance, but not enough titles
2015-01-15 19:55
as i said he will be 6th because he didnt won anything special
2015-01-15 19:56
ciau hltv cant take you serious
2015-01-15 19:56
lmao, he is the best player on 3 of the 4 most played maps, best t side player, most entry frags, number 2 in entry frags overall, most rounds with more than 1 kill. and he ends up as 6th???
2015-01-15 19:56
What is not logical is that the top 5-10 of this ranking is better than the top 5
2015-01-15 19:56

This ranking thingy doesn't make much sense. It is claimed that this ranking list solely focuses players and not the actual teams, yet you do not rank KennyS higher only because his team didn't manage to reach certain heights during 2014? This ranking list seems to be contradicting its own purpose.
2015-01-15 19:58
yes thats what i think, too

2015-01-15 20:00
THIS IS A FUCKING JOKE
2015-01-15 20:00
So none of you fanboys actually read the article and had the brains of your own to make simple conclusions based on that? Stomping tier 2-3 teams on the curb in the group stages would hardly reflect on a persons individual skill being on a tier above the rest and making him a top 1 candidate. It's true that he is without a doubt a great player, belongs in my top3 by a mile. Doesn't change the fact that events are valued based on overall performance, and when your team hardly gets past group stages and the value of rating is determined on the amount of games played it's justified that he's 6th. Based on fanboy logic a person with 1.5 rating from 4 maps is much better than a person with 1.4 rating from 12 maps. The difference is in the quantity, not in the quality of the games. I'd rank him in top3 if I was blinded by fanboyism, but I'd rather stay objective and accept the facts. Pretty on point list so far. pz
2015-01-15 20:01
With that said. I think kennyS is too high on the list.
2015-01-15 20:04
kenny played 4 maps? ah ok
2015-01-15 20:04
Did you even read what I wrote? I can post it in French, if that's what you want.
2015-01-15 20:09
You couldn't have explained it better. Its just like you said, too many people is blinded by fanboyism and can´t accept the facts. Its been like this with almost every player on the list.
2015-01-15 20:25
Acknowledging in the article he's the best and then ranking him 6th is kinda ridiculous.
2015-01-15 20:01

2015-01-15 20:02
I think this is because Titan didn't participate into Dreamhack Cuz KQLY. I really tought he would be Top5 tho. He is almost carrying every game.
2015-01-15 20:02
So sad he hasn't won enough because he's clearly the best out there :(
2015-01-15 20:03
AHAHHAHAHAHAHAH Shox #8 KennyS #6 Ranking made by nip fanboys, gtr will be #1 hahahaha
2015-01-15 20:03
F0rest would make Shox his wife in prison, so don't whine.
2015-01-15 20:05
Shox barely deserves that ranking, what a shitty overrated player. But Kenny deserves #1, I agree. But this ranking is not only about individual performance, but also about tournament placements with your team. Thats why he isnt higher.
2015-01-15 20:08
ahah that's why swag > kio ? what a joke, this ranking is a big joke
2015-01-15 21:04
YES, of course it is!!! Because Kio wasn't in a team that achieved anything for the majority of the year! He was in t2 teams all the way until the end of the year. Just in case you're confused down there in France: A year has 12 months, not 4.
2015-01-15 21:19
"Because Kio wasn't in a team that achieved anything for the majority of the year!" And swag was in this kind of team ? "Just in case you're confused down there in France: A year has 12 months, not 4." Thanks, he played for great teams and even if he is at his top level for ~4 months, it counts.
2015-01-16 10:24
This is a fucking joke.
2015-01-15 20:04
#1 Dust2 rating #1 Inferno rating #1 Mirage rating #1 T-side rating #1 T-side entry-kills #1 AWP kills per round #1 Entry duels won #1 Kills per round #1 Rounds with more than one kill Also highest overall rating by far. What an amazing player... Edit: If you're going to argue that swag > kioshima because of better stats, I can't see how you can place kennyS at #6.
2015-01-15 20:15
Indeed.
2015-01-15 20:07
Easier to keep a high rating when u only play 4 maps at every event!
2015-01-15 21:04

Fucking JW is gonna be higher than kennys when he is getting carried hard by krimz and flusha hahahahahaha fucking joke of a site pasza played well in one tournament then did fuck all for half a year and he will be higher lmao fu

This is the 1st player where I disagree with his standings. While I wasn't expecting him to be #1 because it was obvious that HLTV rating was giving emphasis to titles won, it makes little sense to me that the highest rated player individually fails to achieve top 3. One can argue that had titan advanced in more tournaments maybe his ratings would've lowered down, yet that goes beyond analysis of statistics and enters the realm of speculation.

2015-01-15 20:14
Sorry but this is just ridiculous, even reading the justifications I just cant comprehend how he's been put this low down. Anyone with a brain who's been paying attention this year knows he's been a country mile above everyone in so many areas. Even the stats show him to have the best rating in the majority of areas. This is stupid.

2015-01-15 20:24
its easier to make a 1.27 rating in group stages and shitty events than in playoffs @majors so maybe he was beast this year but imo not best
2015-01-15 20:24
ahaha :D ask any professional player who is the best among them ;)
2015-01-15 20:25

2015-01-15 20:34
"Overall he ended up topping the charts in many categories – he was the best fragger of the year with 0.86 kills per round, he had the most AWP kills per round (0.44), had the highest T side rating (1.15), highest success in entry duels (61%) and the most T-side entry kills (0.13 per round). " so he is basically the best player , but with shit team .

Have to agree with the majority here, this ranking seems to contradict itself, especially in kennyS' case. I understand and (somewhat) agree with arguments made for his placement but I really don't think those are enough to push him all the way to the sixth place. Very odd choice.
2015-01-15 20:59
No one would care about these rankings if they picked the obvious choices. Now you're all talking about it. HLTV.org wins.

Wait what? #6? HAHAHAHAHAH
2015-01-15 21:06
Individually the best player of the year and that can't even be disputed, but as it goes achievements and wins counts, just as they do everywhere else.
2015-01-15 21:07
Seriously?Kenny out of top 3? I think top 4,5 are not better when KennyS.

2015-01-15 21:09
fuck you fucking hltv and shit xtrfy
2015-01-15 21:09
GTR above kennyS in 2014 pretty much sums it up
2015-01-15 21:11
Really expected. The guy is/was a beast, but Titan underperformed all year around and didn't even participate in a major (not his fault, though). Makes perfect sense. But I can imagine if he was in LCDC, for example, in second half of the year. He would be top3, no doubt. Assuming he would keep this level of play. Top5 will be a mixture of players of Fnatic, Vp and NiP, teams that won more money and big awards.
2015-01-15 21:11
no LDLC players in top 7 , KennyS 6 , hum ok pretty much reliable
2015-01-15 21:12
OMG all these stats
2015-01-15 21:15
and forest should be top3 or top4
2015-01-15 21:19

HAHAHAHA What a freaking joke. It's barely believable that you guys actually let KennyS out of the top3, let alone the top5!! It's really ridiculous, it's almost like someone is hating on KennyS.

He has number 1 statistics on so many maps.. And he is 6th?

kennys is outside top 5th, and pasha is in it. lurppis you are a joke, you were in 1.6 and you still are in csgo.
2015-01-15 21:25
pasha is luv, pasha is life and pasha deserved it. Try to remind yourself 1st 6 months of the year and then he had really good results in 2nd half
2015-01-15 21:29
In short, Shut the fuck up.
2015-01-15 21:53
In short, I expected sth like this from such a limited person :) peace
2015-01-15 22:08
lol kenny should be 2nd at worst
2015-01-15 21:33
Please guys, you need to understand, you can't be the best player of the year if you achive close to NOTHING in tournaments/LANs...
2015-01-15 21:36
And you have to understand that it's a ranking of 20 best players, based on individual skills. Well, at least it should be.

2015-01-15 21:51
Why is he the 6th best player of 2014? Individually Kenny "kennyS" Schrub was by far the most impressive player of the year, but on the other hand his great play led to barely any achievements. His list of top three places is only four rows long – first place at DreamHack Stockholm, second place at Gfinity 3 and two third places at SLTV StarSeries IX and XI. He made no impact at the majors and despite having good numbers to show from those events, he didn't play well in Clan-Mystik or Titan's deciding matches in Katowice and Cologne.
2015-01-15 22:01
TIL "TOP 20 Player of 2014" meant how many medals you can put on your penis
2015-01-15 22:02
TIL "TOP 20 Player of 2014" meant how many medals you can put on your penis while performing like the star of your team. kennys played failed and performed subpar when it really matters.
2015-01-15 22:06
Performance > Medals That's like saying Ibrahimovic is worse than some lucky twat in the reserves that did **ck all when his team won the Champions League just because Ibrahimovic didn't win it.

2015-01-15 21:57
Even if they say he doesn't deserve #1 solely for the reason that his TEAM isn't good enough, he's n1 in 3 maps, n1 in kills,awp kills and entrys. How on earth do you rank such a skilled(imo THE BEST) player ranked at 6! This is outrageous HLTV I don't know what you guys we're thinking putting him not even in the top 3.
2015-01-15 21:59
KennyS love KennyS life.
2015-01-15 21:59
It's incredible how such a talented player who had a grate indivdual season finish 6th. Until this point I had been pfor the most part agreeing with this top 20, but in my opinion KennyS should've been at least 3rd, if not 2nd.

JW can make any of those shots blindfolded, against better teams (for example NiP or LDLC, not Vox Eminor), and with a team that is actually good instead of just baiting for him. Pasha is also on the same or higher level. Which is why both of them will be above KennyS in the ranking.

This is individual achievement list, so no surprise here. You can play cheater-like but as long as it gives You nothing more than good statistics - You have failed. That said KennyS performance had huge impact on his team...

2 guys from VP in top 5.. Whoever create this list... I don't want to insult you m8, but you did a really bad job.. kennyS was top 2, shox and f0rest were top 5-6 100 %... Pita said it well, not everything is in numbers. EDIT: top 5 imo should be (from the guys who are left): jw get_right flusha pasha snax but it will probably be: pasha snax jw flusha get_right
2015-01-15 23:49
amusing how 90% of the ppl didnt even read or understood what the ranking is based on. "suprisingly" most dumb comments are made by ppl from random countries you'd imply a low education level. you cant be the best player in the world if your team is not even close to the very best teams. hes playing amazingly, but as long as hes not in a team with other elite players, he wont go to the very top - and i dont see titan improving that much with their actual lineup, they just rely on kennys being godlike.
2015-01-15 23:50
thats why its an individual ranking and not a team ranking, ofc winning should be worth something, but the best attacker in football can come from the worst team in the league theoratically, it shouldnt be impossible to be placed higher if ure by far the best performaner in 2014. despite that titan did win an event and attender several others and is clearly a top8 team, ure talking about it as titan is top50 at best
2015-01-16 00:12
if its a team progress through the year, WHY LDLC's best player is 8th? if its players stats only, kennyS should be #1 or #2 at max! a lot of fail ranks tbh! HLTV rank should be way better than xtfy ones!
2015-01-15 23:50
Kenny is a top 3 player. Because of not attenting som events like DH etc.he deserve this place. I`am sure he will be top 3 this year IF the team helps him. IF we look at esea last lans he played alone. I think any team in the world would love to have him.
2015-01-15 23:59

2015-01-16 02:50
Kenny "kennyS" Schrub displayed a very high level of play throughout 2014, but it led to little success for his teams and therefore he ended up 6th on our Top 20 players of 2014 ranking presented by Xtrfy. Individually Kenny "kennyS" Schrub was by far the most impressive player of the year, but on the other hand his great play led to barely any achievements. srsly why do they call the list top20 players then ?! who are xtrfy and why are such retards allowed to publish articles here ?
2015-01-16 03:05
"Why is he the 6th best player of 2014? Individually Kenny "kennyS" Schrub was by far the most impressive player of the year, but on the other hand his great play led to barely any achievements." so this is team ranking not player ranking.

This list is paid and made by XTRFY. There will be no Fnatic in top 5. The top 5 will be: 5: Maikelele 4: Xizt 3: Friberg 2: F0rest 1: GTR You heard it here first Nice try HLTV, but everyone can see this list is bought by XTRFY.
2015-01-16 08:47
Maikelele does not deserve top5
2015-01-16 08:57
Exactly, but since this list is sponsored by XTRFY, he probably will be. This list has already proven to be shit so.
2015-01-16 10:28
where is JW? he will be entry no 1
2015-01-16 08:57
Okey to put an argument against the kennyS lovers. KennyS was in titan, titan sucked and didnt do well. KennyS leaves titan and shoxie joins, titan does a lot better. Problem is even though kennyS is amazing individually, he makes his teams very 1 dimensional. This game is about the improvements you make to the team not individual stats.
2015-01-16 10:35
Well kennyS truly is the best CS player at the moment, but let's assume he is top1 in this ranking. What would conversation of Kenny's fanboy and someone who has no clue about Counter Strike look like then. - Who is the best player in CS:GO? - O man kennyS for sure! His skills are sick! - how many lans have he won in his career? - Well 2 I think. - Out of how many? - I don't know, like 20 or something. - What? so how is he the best without winning tournaments? - His skills man, he is carrying so hard! - carrying hard, but not to victories? - Who cares dude?! His skill though... ;)

2015-01-17 10:48
so if u put messi in Tottenham and they win nothing he isnt the best player anymore?
2015-01-17 21:10
You can bet your nose that if Messi were to play for Tottenham next season, only in Premier League where they'd finish 5th again, he would get 0 world awards no matter how he plays. Remember Suarez in 2013-14 with Liverpool? He was pretty much godlike in Premier League, like kennyS was in Titan in smaller events. But he didn't play at the biggest stages, in Champions League, so he has precisely 0 big awards, only the Premier League ones. These things are hard to separate for the average fan, but the stage you play at matters. If you don't have great performances at the biggest of stages, you cannot be considered one of the best in the world. That doesn't take away from his skill, or potential to do that next year, but he didn't do it in 2014, no matter how well he played in the smaller events.
2015-01-18 13:43
Well.. Ronaldo didnt get out of the groups in world cup and he still won ballon d'or. The year before that he didnt win either champions league or la liga but he still won ballon d'or.

But it's not the fact that kennyS missed out on one major, it's that he missed out on ALL of them, and a few other big stages (didn't even play semis or final at ESWC, Cph Games, DH Summer, FACEIT). He simply didn't do enough in 2014. Ronaldo had his crazy times in the biggest football "major" Champions League, breaking the goal record and winning it. He also scored a ton of goals in Primera on top of that. It's not that one thing brings kennyS down, it's that there are none that can bring him up over any of the players who did win much more and played as stars at all the biggest stages.

What about 2013 when he neither won champions league or even la liga and still won ballon d'or? He didnt win shit that year and still won ballon d'or.

He was still the top scorer of CL, wasn't he? Made it to the semi, was a close second in Primera. I guess the football experts deemed that no one who achieved more (and you can only achieve slightly more in football as there aren't many tournaments going around) didn't impress as much, like Ribery or Robben who won the CL that year. Also let's not forget that Ballon d'Or is for the calendar year, so it doesn't take whole seasons into account, and Ronaldo had smth like 60-70 goals in 2013 far ahead of everyone (including Messi), while not falling behind in achievements so much.

Being the topscorer for one season can be compared to what kennyS did this year. He was the topscorer statsvise 2014 and Ronaldo was the topscorer statswise 2013 (in individual stats) hence why he won the price for the best player. Not falling behind in achivements? Copy del ray : Barcelona #1 La Liga : Barcelona #1 Champions league : Bayern #1 Club world cup : Bayern #1 As im saying he didnt win anything other than individual score. You're saying that he won the award because the experts thought he was the most impressing? You're saying that the majority wouldnt say that kennyS was the most impressing player of 2014? Im not 100% disagreeing with you because not playing dhw is a solid argument for not putting him at top 1 but how his skills couldnt put him at top 3 is beyond my understanding.

No it cannot be compared to what kennyS did because Ronaldo was the top scorer in the MOST ELITE competition. kennyS didn't even play in the playoffs of any major. There's your difference. And yes, Ronaldo didn't fall behind in achievements as much as kennyS did (not even close, and like I said consider that football only has a handful of competitions). He was basically at least in a top3 team in the world in 2013 (and again consider it's about the calendar year with ballon d'or, not season, and he started destroying in the first half 2013-14 with smth like 30 goals) And like I said you have to impress at the biggest stages, which kennyS didn't do in 2014. Skills have nothing to do with it, either for the Ronaldo or kennyS story, it's about performance, and more importantly performance at the biggest stages.

The thing imo is that kennyS did those stats in champions league. They just lost many games and got out soon, but he got the kills and stats against great teams as well. Anyway, since that's your rating style, and it's your rating, it is the right way for you. Anyone up to do as much work to rank players can do their own rankings ofc ^^

But he didn't, that's the point. It's like he played only in the local league (a good one like Premier, you also meet some of the best teams there), but never did it in Champions League. Like I described in the article, even though he seemingly has good stats at majors, he actually has terrible stats in the two deciding matches for his teams, the ones that could have brought them into playoffs. And also like I said above, he didn't even play in the big matches of other big tournaments, not just the majors. All he has to show for is two final appearances (Gfinity - a solid event, and DH Stockholm - event with only 8 teams with half of the big ones missing) and two consolidation finals at SLTV events, which don't really mean that much. So yea, he met good teams here and there, but not as often as the guys above him. And he never did something as special as pasha in Katowice, or as Snax at the majors, or as JW in the 5 finals fnatic won, so he didn't stand out at the big stages in any way. He just cannot be considered player of the year without those things, no matter how much skill and quality play he shows.
