Top 20 players of 2014: JW (5)

Jesper "JW" Wecksell gets the 5th place on our Top 20 players of 2014 ranking presented by Xtrfy. His aggressive style was one of the keys to fnatic's success in the second half of the year, and he particularly stood out in big matches.

Jesper "JW" Wecksell had a breakthrough year in 2013 when he first started playing in international events, and that culminated with an MVP performance and triumph at the biggest tournament in CS history until that point, DreamHack Winter.

He ended up 8th on our Top 20 players of 2013 ranking, where we described some of his history which started with CS 1.6 in 2009 when he was 14 years old. He never managed to go up the ladder until CS:GO came out and he formed the Epsilon squad with two old friends, Andreas "znajder" Lindberg and Robin "flusha" Rönnquist.

Following their big win at DreamHack Winter, fnatic still weren't considered the best in the world, but expectations were higher nevertheless.

The first event they attended in 2014 was DreamHack Stockholm where the young Swedes had the chance to prove their worth against NiP, Titan and dignitas.

After a great start with a 16-5 win over the Danish squad, they lost to both Titan and NiP and finished third in the mini-tournament.

JW was third in fnatic's dominant trio, behind flusha and znajder, with a 1.04 rating, but he didn't contribute consistently (only in 59% of rounds).

That was the only event for them between the two majors, as next up was the task of defending the $100,000 title at EMS One Katowice.

But right in the first match things went wrong for fnatic – they lost to Danes of Reason 12-16. JW didn't play well in that loss, but he made up for it in the iBUYPOWER clash where he was the Man of the Match (24:17, 1.21 rating, VOD).

They went on to win easily against Reason in the re-match for second place in the group, and then a big battle against LGB followed in the quarter-final.

The reigning major champions won the first map, but ended up losing the series with a 14-16 nail-biter on the third map. JW had a solid showing, especially on that third map where he ended up top fragging (27:21, 1.21 rating), but it was not enough.

He ended up with another average tournament performance (1.01 rating) as again third ranked in the team.

Next up was Copenhagen Games, the event where JW and the majority of the fnatic team first turned heads the year before under the Epsilon banner.

Going into it this time the Swedes were considered fourth in the world according to our April ranking, mainly thanks to their DH Winter success, but they failed to deliver on the expectations once again.

After defeating Casper "cadiaN" Møller's tRICKED and Jacob "pyth" Mourujärvi's Publiclir, fnatic faced dignitas and were involved in another extremely close quarter-final series, but ended up losing 20-22, 16-19.

JW was solid in this big battle, having scored a kill in 52% of rounds, including an incredible 19 entry kills (14 of which led to a round win).

Coupled with the great play in the first two series, he ended up with a 1.16 tournament rating, second in the team. But in fact he was their best fragger and the one who contributed the most in rounds the Swedes won (kill or assist in 80%).

With two 5th-8th finishes in a row, fnatic's stature was dropping fast so they needed a good result at DreamHack Summer, the event where four of them made their name the year before with a second place finish.

Focus on JW from fnatic

DreamHack Summer was fnatic's low point of the year

But instead they dropped out in the group stage, losing to SK two times. JW was in fact the team's best in those matches against Faruk "pita" Pita's squad (mini-highlight reel), although he ended up 2nd overall with a 1.10 rating due to not dominating against LC in their only win.

After another disappointing finish, the team had to put a stop to the downswing spiral, so changes were in store. Jonatan "Devilwalk" Lundberg decided to move into a coaching position and znajder was given his marching orders, while two new faces were brought in from the former LGB squad – Olof "olofmeister" Kajbjer and Freddy "KRIMZ" Johansson.

Their first event was already an improvement – a semi-final finish at Gfinity 3 after an almost perfect group stage.

JW actually had his worst frag production of the year on this occasion, scoring only 0.70 kills per round at the event for a 1.01 rating, but he was still third best in the team and even second in the rounds they won.

JW's two highlights vs. Titan in the semi-final of Gfinity 3

ESL One Cologne was just two weeks away so the new squad had to adapt quickly. They kicked off the big tournament with a win over iBUYPOWER, and then even secured the first place of the group by taking down previous major champions Virtus.pro.

JW wasn't spectacular right from the start, but he did step it up in the second half against the Poles as they made their comeback and won on overtime, ending up with 27:24 (1.12 rating and 23:13 from second half onwards, POV).

He was even better in the quarter-final series against Na`Vi, which resembled their battle with LGB in Katowice as it came down to the last round on map three, as he was shared top fragger for fnatic.

On map one against the Ukrainians he put up 25:15 (1.37 rating, involved in every round win, POV), and later ended up with 67:57 (1.14 rating), only trailing his teammate flusha.

1-on-3 clutch against Na`Vi in the quarter-final of ESL One Cologne

He didn't make as much impact against dignitas, but he was the one who had a kill or assist the most often in that semi-final series – 63% of rounds.

The grand final against NiP followed and JW was back in the driving seat in the big match. After being unable to make much impact on map one Cobblestone, he was on the top of his game on the second map Cache as the Man of the Match (22:13, 1.48 rating, 5 entry kills, CT side POV).

He then did a good job in the first half of the all-deciding map three, putting up 20 kils (POV), but NiP managed to turn it around and grab the title instead.


JW had great impact throughout ESL One Cologne playoffs

Slowly but surely the new roster had been improving, and they finally grabbed their first tournament victory at SLTV StarSeries X Finals, taking down Natus Vincere in the final.

JW had one of his best events in terms of consistent contribution, getting a kill, assist or surviving in 74.4% of rounds. It was largely due to his never-higher assist count of 0.25 per round, which was partly a result of his more aggressive play – he was involved in 36% of entry duels and won half of them.

Nevertheless, he did score 0.80 kills per round as well, and with a couple of Man of the Match performances, one of which came against Na`Vi in the upper final (28:14, 1.65 rating, POV), he helped fnatic clinch their first title of the year.

JW himself played even better at their next event, DreamHack Stockholm #2, recording his year-high 1.31 rating and even getting what was later selected as the highlight of the year in the semi-final against Titan:

Highlight of the year by JW at DH Stockholm #2

Despite that and another amazing ace against the French team, and his overall great play, the team lost quite convincingly 11-16, 1-16.

They were back to winning ways at FACEIT Season 2 Finals where they disposed of Virtus.pro in the semis and iBUYPOWER in the grand final.

JW continued playing in great form, even though he was only third by rating in the team with 1.16, he was the one making the most impact in the rounds they won (63.8% with a kill, 23% with an entry kill).

His performance against Virtus.pro was particularly impressive as he topped the charts with 44:23 (1.43 rating, 10:3 entry score, map 2 CT side POV).

Coupled with more great play against the Poles at the same stage at their next event, semi-final at ESWC, it prompted Jarosław "pashaBiceps" Jarząbkowski to state that "JW is the best in the world" at that moment.


fnatic with the ESWC trophy

JW was indeed playing great at the French event as well, especially in the grand final against LDLC which he finished with a 42:34 score (1.16 rating, 12 entry kills), but he was again trailing his teammates who were playing at an even higher level, this time KRIMZ and olofmeister.

Nevertheless, he was an important part of their third title win there with his year-high 0.20 entry kills per round, and he was also crucial during the fourth win at Fragbite Masters Season 3 Finals a week later.

It was perhaps his best performance of the year, at least during a triumphant campaign, as he finished with 0.83 kills per round and a 1.25 rating.

And once again he excelled against LDLC in the grand final – 108:74 score in the four maps (1.43 rating, 20:14 entry score, 2 aces). Even though he wasn't the best rated on any of those maps, he was the one who made the most impact in the match, scoring a kill 73% of fnatic's round wins.

AWP ace vs. LDLC in the grand final of Fragbite Masters 3

Fnatic's great play and triumphs in October and November made them the main favorites going into the final major of the year, DreamHack Winter. However, cheating accusations were thrown at them while they were preparing for the event, so they went into it under an even bigger spotlight.

They ran into trouble in the group stage against HellRaisers and lost 14-16, but made it out in 2nd place after a convincing win against Cloud9, 16-5.

Then more issues arose in the quarter-final match against LDLC. Fnatic used an illegal boost to come back and win map three, and even though they were about to replay it on the next day, the young squad decided it's best to forfeit due to community pressure.

Until that JW was looking to be in great shape yet again – he was the only one putting up resistance in the HellRaisers loss, played well against both Cloud9 and Bravado, and was solid in the one map fnatic managed to take against LDLC.


DreamHack Winter was a memorable event for fnatic, but for the wrong reasons

In the end he had his best rating out of the three majors of the year, 1.21, and was the one making the most happen for fnatic with a kill in 68% of their round wins.

Even though the team contemplated their fate after the infamous ending to DreamHack Winter, they had one more event to attend at the end of the year – ESEA Season 17 Global Finals.

After day one when they struggled to defeat a wounded Titan and even lost to Virtus.pro for the first time with the new lineup, fnatic came back on day two and swept their opponents to win their fifth title.

In the upper final, JW for the first time in a while wasn't very effective against the Poles, but he made up for it in the grand final when he played well in all four maps – ending up as the top fragger of the final with 97:84 (1.15 rating, a kill in 70.3% of round wins).

His overall event rating was an unimpressive 1.08 due to the first Virtus series and some struggles against Titan, but he contributed by far the most in fnatic's round wins – in 69.8% of them he had a kill and 28.2% of them an entry kill, therefore earning a claim for the tournament MVP.

Why is he the 5th best player of 2014?

Jesper "JW" Wecksell was one of the most important players for one of the most successful teams of the year. As fnatic made their title winning run, he was always one of the key members, whether with good performances throughout the event or at least in the big matches.

He also played well at every other tournament he attended in 2014, and was one of his team's best players at each of them as well.

JW didn't find much success in the first half of the year with the old lineup, but he caught up with the rest in the second half when the new fnatic lineup was formed.

He boasts five titles from 2014, a second place at a major – ESL One Cologne, and three bronze finishes. That makes a total of 9 podium placements for the 19-year-old.

While he was rarely the main star of fnatic throughout their big runs, with someone else always stepping up to grab the MVP title, he was more often than not the one making the most difference in the rounds they won.


JW impressed in big matches

More importantly, he was the team's best player in big matches (last three of a tournament) with a 1.13 rating, which actually ranks 1st among those who played over 20 maps. Good examples of that include his play against LDLC in the final of ESWC and Fragbite Masters, or Virtus.pro at ESEA Season 17, as well as a few semi-final occasions against the Poles.

His entry killing was also on point when it mattered most, as no one scored most first kills than him – just like throughout the year – 0.17 per round. And just how important that is for fnatic is seen by the fact that over a quarter of their round wins come after his entry kill.

Overall he was actually far more efficient on the CT side where he had a 1.35 rating (ranks 5th), as opposed to 0.88 on the Terrorist side (24th).

However, he did get the 2nd most entry kills on the T-side (0.13 per round) and was involved in by far the most entry duels (30.4%).

Other than that he was also the 4th best fragger in terms of kills per round overall (0.78) and 4th best in pistol rounds (1.25 rating). 

Perhaps surprisingly, he was one of the most consistent players in terms of getting a rating above 1.00 in a map, which he did on 74% of occasions (3rd most). In addition to stemming from fnatic's success, that stat also comes as a result of the fact that he very rarely underperformed even with the previous lineup.

In the end he was placed 5th due to his big contribution to fnatic's success, the impressive entry killing, and most importantly his superb play in big matches.

Who mocks should research the statistics of Pasha of the first half of the year, mainly from Katowice (rating 1.38) and Copenhagen Games (1.31), really impressive numbers: hltv.org/?pageid=247&playerid=317&eventi..

Still easier to maintain a high rating when you play less maps, at least when considering that a large percentage of his maps were played in groupstage and in lesser tournaments, hence a lot of the maps will be against second tier teams. Not saying kennyS is bad, but he's not best either. His spot as #6 seems fair to me.
2015-01-16 21:20
do u even realize how big gap is between kennys stats and others. Ye i fuckin get it he played less matches. He didnt played in team which achieved much this year. But jeesus fuckin christ his stats are completely out of this world. Did u even look at em ? People like you are really bad at numbers it seems. Its not like his stats are just higher cos of whatever reason u wanna explain- His stats are in another fuckin league than anybody for this year. Do you fuckin get it ?

This, and plus, JW is in a top 2 team so they play vs teams lower than them and he doesn't have to carry. When Titan plays vs other top tier teams, kennyS always has to carry, so it would actually be easier for JW to have good stats.
2015-01-16 22:46
in fvcking deed.
2015-01-16 22:46
But JW Is playing finals and vs better teams.
2015-01-16 23:13
Better teams ? Which better teams fnatic playing and titan not ? And ye its for sure only cos of JW that they are playing finals. Other 4 players have no impact on this thing right ?

No I didn't look into the stats, 'cause frankly I don't care enough about this. I'm just tired of people tunnelvisioning everything on this website and never see things from different perspectives. But I stand by that my argument is very valid. I never said he's not a great player, no one can't deny that. But the thing is, when a lot of his matches are from group stages and smaller tournaments, a bigger percentage of his maps will be against worse opponents, than the teams facing the best teams in the playoffs of the bigger tournaments. Bad teams + great player with insane fragging abilities = amazing ratings.
2015-01-17 01:24
You say bad opponents + great player with insane fragging abilities = amazing ratings. The counterpoint to that is that good teammates + great player with insane fragging abilities = amazing ratings. When you are the only great player on your team, all the weight falls on your shoulders. You will be caught in a lot of unwinnable positions simply because your teammates suck. On the other hand being in a great team should set a star player up to get amazing ratings. HLTV has made it clear that they put a heavy emphasis on team achievements. By their own "rules" they are right to place JW > KennyS, however many people disagree that an individual ranking in a team game should put such a heavy emphasis on what the other 4 men on your team enabled you to achieve. IMO this list could have benefitted from placing a heavier emphasis on individual skill and less on team achievements. That would be a fairer assessment of individual skill. I'd get it if it was some kid who played one map and got a 2.0 rating against Team Wolf, but that's clearly not what we're talking about here. I think there can be a healthy debate about this, but it seems like the vocal majority (no way to say what those who don't speak up think) disagree somewhat with HLTV's criteria. To round it up, this is as close as it gets to an "official" player ranking. No other ranking has as much prestige as this one, no other website, when it comes down to it, has the stats, the analysis and the visibility to say their list is better. As a historical record, years down the road, when we think back on 2014 in esports, who will we remember as the best players of the year? Who will we wax nostalgically about as the king of the AWP? I think the list should reflect that.
2015-01-17 10:04
Obviously his great rating isn't that great as his carrying doesn't win games whilst Pashas do. =D
2015-01-16 20:58
Pasha ava reting on majors>kennys ava rating on majors and pasha play 4x more maps
2015-01-16 21:00
lol kennyS never made it out of the groups pls, he didn't even attend DHW, let's not even mention playoffs, it ain't that hard to record 1.20 rating at every event when half the matches consist in stomping low teams during group stages, I think kennyS deserved top3 because his individual stats are really out of this world, but let's compare things that can be compared, pasha/snax and flusha played outstanding during majors and during playoffs, pasha was out of this world during Katowice.
2015-01-16 21:07
Ratings of HLTV (only majors): Katowice: kennyS 1.03 Pasha 1:38; ESL Cologne: kennyS 1:28, 1:11 Pasha; DH Winter 2014: kennyS - (did not participate. KQLY sends a "hi"), Pasha 1:23. I agree that the kennyS is a great player, but the Pasha had a great year and obviously deserves a place in the top 20 of HLTV.
2015-01-16 21:08
too bad kennyS doesn't win shit with his team :D And that is what this ranking is based on.
2015-01-16 23:49
the problem is that HLTVs rating is too stupid, making only fraggers looked upon as the best players
2015-01-16 21:00
This whole list is a joke. Please hltv- just put get right on 1 place now and let xtrfy to be happy.
2015-01-16 21:44

2015-01-17 00:10
Pasha is a fking beast (both Rifle and awp) . Just because JW has some flashy frag video, people assume that he is better than Pasha. Pasha is much much better "all-round player" unlike JW who essentially is one trick pony.
2015-01-16 21:49
Actually pasha said it himself jw is the top1
2015-01-17 01:56
shut up you guys shit on pasha and he proved to be one of the best cs go players so far, very consistent on LANs, great player overall...you just like the highlight players who perform sick actions sometimes, but they're very inconsistent...pasha deserves top 4 place at least, if not, top 1

Yeah. But i just said that he had best rating on katowice at least.
2015-01-16 22:30
he had good rating on every major tournament this year so I think pasha deserves top 3
2015-01-16 23:45
Yeah that might be the case, jw had "only" good rating on katowice and on cologne.
2015-01-17 10:39
still pasha has better rating on 2 out of 3 majors
2015-01-17 14:13
why? what is wrong exactly by hltv? pretty dumb to speak loud like this and dont have any argument at all

I called it hahahaha, mad sweds inc... n1 HLTV well deserved, tbh, his stats aren't that sick like some other players like pasha/flusha/snax/KennyS for example, but the achievements gave him the 5th place.

2015-01-16 20:14
but he got better than Kennys :d i dont get these top 20s anymore, if they give gtr top 1 its kind of bullshit since he hasnt been in his best lately
2015-01-16 20:24
JW achievements > KennyS achievements, do you even read the first article about the ranks?, that one without any name. They chose the players from their game impact on heavy tournaments like majors also considering individual stats and some minor tourneys like esea, faceit, sltv, g3, etc as we can see. That's why JW > KennyS on the list although KennyS > JW (or anyone) is real.
2015-01-16 20:26
ye game impact, KennyS has carried Mystik and Titan teams,dropping 40 bombs while awping while JW use the cz half the time and choking with awp. so if KennyS would been in LDLC he would been higher up the list?
2015-01-16 20:32
If he would been in LDLC and win the same things or more that the current LDLC won (minor tourneys, 2nd places in other ones and also the major DHW) top1 easy then.
2015-01-16 20:34
tbh i dont think fnatic would stand a chance with kennys,shox,nbk,happy and smithzz or kio
2015-01-16 20:36
-smithzz (or -NBK) +KennyS and LDLC would be one of the best rosters of all time. Anyway, with smithzz they do very well too.
2015-01-16 20:37
yes hes quite accurate as awper too

More importantly, he was the team's best player in big matches (last three of a tournament) with a 1.13 rating, which actually ranks 1st among those who played over 20 maps.

2015-01-16 20:18
Numbers don't always tell the truth, achievements do
2015-01-16 20:27
Ok so Pronax gonna be in the top 5? HLTV said that this was based on stats and nothing but the stats.
2015-01-16 20:35
achievements is a stat... And no, when NiP and Virtus Pro has performed better the entire year, there should be no reason to expect pronax to be amongst the last four.
2015-01-16 21:03
KennyS stats is inflated by the fact that he didn't play against top teams all the time like JW, pasha and so on. Those who for most of the season have been atleast in the top8 at every tournament. Easier opponents = better stats. To me he was also the best individual player this year, but it doesn't go far in these ratings when you play lesser teams and don't reach that far in tournaments. Also he didn't always perform against top teams when needed by his team.
2015-01-16 21:02

2015-01-16 20:24
Dont mention me only the 4 tournaments he struggled a bit, and his struggles happened right after his daughter was born, wich is normal and justified. Here is the entire list, enjoy pasha's stats low newb^^, he played a shitton of tournaments: SLTV star VIII = 1.14 EMS one Katowice EU finals = 1.41 SLTV IV finals = 1.14 Fragbite masters 2k14 = 1.11 EMS one KATOWICE = 1.38 (MVP of whole tournament) Copenhagen games = 1.31 Face it spring league = 1.17 SLTV starseries = 1.16 Ginfinity = 1.15 ESL one Cologne = 1.11 faceit league season = 0.96 (here he struggled a bit) SLTV starseries XI = 1.09 Fragbite masters season 3 = 0.95 Faceit season 2 finals = 0.96 (he struggled here too but did pretty well on the league version with 1.08) ESWC = 1.14 Dreamhack winter = 1.23 (3rd place)
2015-01-16 20:22

2015-01-16 20:24
What a excuse low lifer, but np I'll post for you the same list again without that qualifier, and still sick, don't forget about he was the MVP of EMS one Katowice in LAN. SLTV star VIII = 1.14 SLTV IV finals = 1.14 Fragbite masters 2k14 = 1.11 EMS one KATOWICE = 1.38 (MVP of whole tournament) Copenhagen games = 1.31 Face it spring league = 1.17 SLTV starseries = 1.16 Ginfinity = 1.15 ESL one Cologne = 1.11 faceit league season = 0.96 (here he struggled a bit) SLTV starseries XI = 1.09 Fragbite masters season 3 = 0.95 Faceit season 2 finals = 0.96 (he struggled here too but did pretty well on the league version with 1.08) ESWC = 1.14 Dreamhack winter = 1.23 (3rd place)

2015-01-16 20:19
Players potential depend on the team success. Put Messi and C.Ronaldo in the USA playing "soccer" ... They would never win any awards. This year, fnatic was much stronger than Titan. Fact. kennyS didn't have more opportunities to shine because the team sucked (compared to fnatic, NiP, VP, etc), honestly.

ok yea but he was skillwise 100% best player in 2014 , and i don't think u can argue that tbh , so he should be the number1 player skillwise and that is what this should be :)
2015-01-16 20:44
but it isn't, and who is to define skill, we all have our own personal oppinions. Something I wrote further up: KennyS stats is inflated by the fact that he didn't play against top teams all the time like JW, pasha and so on. Those who for most of the season have been atleast in the top8 at every tournament. Easier opponents = better stats. Now had he been playing better opponents his stats would likely follow the picture we have seen from the tournaments when him and his team fails.

really ? kennys basicly destroyed every team possible tbh and in my opinion he should be the number one this year but yea i guess it's ur opinion that he's not but that kennys is number 6 is quite nuts imo ..
2015-01-16 21:13
I am not talking about my personal opinion. To me he is the #1 player this year. But doing stats like 4-16 against Dignitas in an important match doesn't really help his bid for being higher, neither does the general lack of achievements.

well tbh u would get a little tired of carrien titan on ur back every game i mean sometime u just have a bad luck game so yea ..
2015-01-16 21:28
No, he isn't. At least, he didn't show it in key moments. He missed a lot of tournaments due Titan's poor performance. You didn't see him destroying the opponents in a major (Cologne, Katowice, etc) final or semi-final, did you? If you did, he would be higher. The ranking is a combination of individual skill and team effort. That's why the top3 will be consisted of players from fnatic, VP and/or NiP - the best teams of 2014, all year around.

and that's fair for kennys in what reguard ? i'm 100% sure he would be a monster on majors etc but it's cause he's team is bad that he can't be top 1 skillwise is total bullshit imo
2015-01-17 10:41
Probably he would, but he wasn't. This a is top about what happened, not about could have happen. That's speculation. He's penalized for being in Titan, a team that clearly underperformed in 2014. The cheating ban of a team mate didn't help either.

true but shouldn't be penalized for something he can't control he was aimwise the best player hands down in 2k14 and that's what this list should be imo :)
2015-01-17 12:22
Well, being 6th of the world, all things considered, I think is quite good. Just one player, besides kennyS, from Titan, is in the top20. That should tell something about kennyS' level of play this year. Hopefully, he continues being a monster and Titan step it up to see him further in the list. Well, next year. He deserves it.

apex was in top 20 mate :) , but still kennys was the best individual player this year hands down imo :)
2015-01-17 12:53
Yes, I know. :) That's why I said besides kennyS! VP, NiP, fnatic and LCDC all have at least two players in the top10. That's huge. They had a great 2014. That's why the top3 will be from those teams. More finals, more exposure! It would be unfair to those players, who managed to win awards and get nice stats, and put kennyS in the top5, let alone top3.
2015-01-17 16:35
"In the end we also took into account contribution to team success and contribution in big matches such as semi-finals and finals (or the last three matches in a double elimination tournament) and came up with the list that will be revealed over the next 20 days" :)
2015-01-17 02:16
i think pasha 1st, snax 2nd or 3rd xD
2015-01-16 20:17
I will reapeat one more time, snax is better than pasza at majors, he is best at majors at all

2015-01-16 20:18
Why? He isn't polish. If snax/pasha are number one it's because they have the stats to back it up. It was a good year to VP too.
2015-01-16 20:41
Best tournent dhstockholm where the only teams they beat were a slumping dignitas and 3dmax. LOL. Glad to see cz nerfed so we won't see this guy in the top 5 next year

2015-01-16 20:23
This made me laugh so hard , this confirmed the list is made by brainless apes , pasha and snax better then kennys and jw , wp HLTV

in 2014... yes u brainless ape
2015-01-16 20:22
Mad fanboy always mad
2015-01-16 20:30
brainless apes who are doing this for 10+ years. Great way to appreciate someone doing something for you. Let's see your top20 list and your arguements. I bet they would be "KennyS dropped 40 bombs most of the time, while his team was so shit they couldn't even buy guns, so he deserves top1". Top2, Let's see what we have here boys... OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH SHIIIIIIET, ScreaM top2 because of his 90% HS during groupstage games with teams like Wolves.
2015-01-16 20:58
ScreaM is too good for this list he will be top0 the aimbot
2015-01-17 02:15

2015-01-16 20:23
but but but... JW best ? :(
2015-01-16 20:23
well this was unexpected I saw him 1st or 2nd :D
2015-01-16 20:24
ya def 2nd for sure
2015-01-16 20:56
4.pasha 3.Flusha 2.Snax 1.GTR(made it to finals of every major and performed well so i foresee this) JW on the other hand really didn't have too much to show with fnatic's first lineup thus being behind pasha who was consistent all year long, people are really underrating pasha for some reason... He was by far one of the best players all year round especially on the bigger stages, you guys need to wake up.
2015-01-16 20:24
And ofcourse this list is bought by XTRFY. :)

Will there be some kind of a summary of all the TOP20 players' stats that you mention alongisde the rating? I mean entry kills rating, entry dues, map ratings etc. Would be nice if there was a table like that, so everyone can compare each players' stats. I don't think there will be much work doing that, though I might be wrong of course. Would be even nicer to have a table like that with top25-30 players, so we can see who was the closest to grab a spot at this ranking. I guess the data is there as you mentioned JW's T-side rating being 24th
2015-01-16 20:24
Living through christmas holidays was enough gift for this hog, why do u give him another present?

JW good but not the best (JW #5)
2015-01-16 20:44
I dont get it. There will be two players in the top 4 who only won one big (important) tournament this year. The rest they failed in semi final or some shit. Thats just silly. If they are top 4 players, they should be able to carry their team to better placements.
2015-01-16 20:45
2 VP players will not be in Top 4. So pasha and snax are not both going to be in top 4. 1 is obviously GR. The other 3 no clue, but who cares. CSGO is a team game and individual marks based on stats really in the end means nothing. Casters and lurpis and orgs talk about stats all day, talk to players and they constantly say that the stats dont matter. An individual players quality or importance to a team is not shown necessarily through stats.
2015-01-16 20:45
JW should be top3 imo but yea congratz jesper! =_=;

2015-01-16 21:03
when you play harder opponents you deont get as good stats. also when you dont use your entire team as bait, you wont get good ratings either. thats why this is a personal ranking, but yet not purely based on stats alone
2015-01-16 21:08
And its not like kenny was playing vs noobs. He was playing always vs top teams, not against some random MM heros like you. So, your statement is false. Using entire team like bait? Lol, you have to be joking. I guess that you are always the guy who is getting carried on MM.

#290 "What do you mean? You mean that he will be top 4 cause he is loved in the cs go community?" i dont care if he is loved by the community. this is not relevant to the ranking, and more improtantly this is not what I said. What I mean is JW may have impressive online performance, but in the end what did he achieve that Pasha didnt do better? JW 2-3 second tier events, something else? Dont think so. Jw is a really great player with all weapons and have great stats in many aspects of the game, but is he really better than Pasha in 2014? Pasha Best player from Jan-june 2014 pretty solid second half of year allthougth he did have some inconsistency lately. Pasha Led his team and carried them to a major title while not being the favorites and basically did it by himself , undiputed MVP and 1.40 rating or something crazy overall rating, this was stacked event and the first major every team was trying really hard. They played Good counterstrike in all other events and rarely placed lower than 3rd in any event they participated in. However they failed to win another major this year as a team, individually he performed high enough to get the 4th slot in the top#20 There are lots more stats that I can post but im sure when Tgwri1s post it u can read and understand for yourself.

2015-01-16 22:31
waaaat?? this rank... lel
2015-01-16 22:38
So basically we have at 5th and 6th place : #1 rating in big matches #1 entry kills per rounds #1 entry kills per rounds in big matches #1 kills per round #1 kills per round in big matches #1 t-side rating #1 % entry duels won What could top that ? Moreover, I wonder who could be #1 rating overall if not kennys. I find it strange it wouldn't even be a "notable stat" and yet it wasn't written.
2015-01-16 22:38

this years top 20 is just a joke, its not only about KDA ratio, JW best player of last year for sure
2015-01-16 23:30
If it was only about KDA ratio, KennyS would have been top1, which isn't the case. Regardless of what many HLTV users seem to think, this ranking is made with a lot of analysis, many many factors are taken into consideration, and if they would take the time to actually read the articles they're commenting on, they would know.
2015-01-16 23:40

Brazil hugoooo 
I have terrible news for you: he will be first.
2015-01-17 19:26
This FF is higher than KennyS because you can't read the stats you are posting. I'm sorry but you're a fraud if you make this team biased they have plenty of trophies for that. dumb list.
2015-01-17 00:03
But why in the world, is he higher ranked than KennyS...???
2015-01-17 00:05
so pasha #1 confirmed, ty my friends
2015-01-17 00:07
hahaha this list is a JOKE! jw is 2nd AT LEAST. if gtr gets first.. omfg, Xtrfy.
2015-01-17 00:32
Snax deserved this year top1 if it will be in this position it will be the biggest gtr mockery of the year
2015-01-17 00:37
JW > KennyS confirmed. Kappa.
2015-01-17 01:17
hate kappa, but ye. plz cancel the top 20. they got no clue. kennyS is no doubt top 3 world.

He will. Actually, his stats are awesome, if this ranking was accurate he would be 2nd, behind kennyS.
2015-01-17 19:25

2015-01-17 02:05

Flusha 1#
2015-01-17 02:57
Congratz JW! Well deserved! Maybe the best next year? :D
2015-01-17 03:31
If better player murican SWAG was 18º, Hiko out of top 17, but Hiko top 25 ez!
2015-01-17 05:27
Should be a little higher.
2015-01-17 05:43
rating for Katowice, Cologne and DH WInter average about 1.11 ? while pasha have average 1,24. Add to this fact that for the first half of a year fnatic was like shit 2rate team. 1.GTR 2.Snax 3.Flusha 4.pasha

looooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooool.................................................................. HLTV STOP MAKING RANKS U ARE BRAINDEAD
2015-01-17 14:41
Smthg wrong with this top
2015-01-17 16:04
Shroud top4 ? GTR for sure
2015-01-17 16:10
JW Nice..
2015-01-17 16:19
Flusha will be #1 100% sure, unless hltv is following the community cheating bullshit he has by far been the most consistent player of that year.
2015-01-17 16:36
This is true he is very consistent he only had a couple bad games the whole year but JW is better imo in terms of individual skill which is what I thought this ranking was about.
2015-01-18 21:27
From what I aunderstood, kennyS was ranked as #6 becouse he didn't achieve anything spectacular and wasn't that good in "big matches". Now we have Jw who won many titles this year and as you can see - had best rating in "big matches". Still ranked #5 ? Is there any logic in this ?:D
2015-01-17 16:52
no major no fun
2015-01-17 18:16
hmmm Maybe of all this fuckrating! GTR Deserve the 1st But Flusha will get it xxxxxD

2015-01-18 15:23
jw good not best (gtr best)
2015-01-18 16:14
Lol #5...... JW is the best in the world atm. Edit: He is second best KennyS is the best individual talent in CS Go atm.
2015-01-18 21:24
what a joke 5 for JW... Probably the best player atm.
