Top 20 players of 2016: Introduction

We're here with start of the 6th edition of our yearly Top 20 players series which will recap the year by honoring the biggest stars of the competitive CS:GO scene.

As has been custom for seven years now (with the exception of the transitional 2012 which featured both CS:GO and CS 1.6) we begin the New Year by presenting our Top 20 players of 2016! We will publish one article per day starting from tonight all the way up to January 20th when we will reveal our #1 player.

You will be able to find the updated ranking on this page during the process, as well as the full list after it's all said and done like in the last year's edition.

Top 20 players of 2016 powered by EGB.com

1. Brazil Marcelo "coldzera" David
2. Brazil Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo
3. Denmark Nicolai "device" Reedtz
4. Ukraine Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev
5. Poland Janusz "Snax" Pogorzelski
6. France Richard "shox" Papillon
7. Sweden Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg
8. Sweden Olof "olofmeister" Kajbjer
9. Belgium Adil "ScreaM" Benrlitom
10. Sweden Robin "flusha" Rönnquist
11. Bosnia and Herzegovina Nikola "NiKo" Kovač
12. Russia Egor "flamie" Vasilyev
13. France Kenny "kennyS" Schrub
14. Denmark Emil "Magiskb0Y" Reif
15. Brazil Fernando "fer" Alvarenga
16. Denmark Markus "Kjaerbye" Kjaerbye
17. Slovakia Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács
18. Sweden Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund
19. Brazil Lincoln "fnx" Lau
20. Sweden Dennis "dennis" Edman

Surpassing 2015 in number of big tournaments (this time there were 15 that we classified as such due to featuring many of the world's best teams and a $200,000+ prize pool), this past year will likely be remembered as the most competitive in CS to date in terms of different teams and players finding their place under the spotlight.

That naturally led to the biggest number of players yet making a very strong case for a place in this ranking, but as usual, we had to limit it to the 20 of the very best, leaving behind some rising stars, as well as frequent members of previous lists.


Big stages like this one forged the Top players of 2016

The ranking is as usual based on statistical parameters from LAN events (online performances are not counted), with big events carrying more weight due to providing tougher competition and bigger pressure to perform.

In 2016 we introduced some new stats to our database which helped us analyze performances even better, such as ADR (average damage per round), and we are in the process of introducing a few more such as KAST (rounds with a kill, assist, survival or a traded death, which measures round-to-round consistency) and Impact rating (value based on multi-kill rounds, opening kills and winning 1vsX situations), both of which will be included in our Rating 2.0 that is set to be added to the site during the first months of 2017. Those stats will be referenced throughout the article series as they were considered during the creation of the ranking.

We also determined the MVPs and EVPs (Exceptionally Valuable Players) for each of the 26 events considered for this ranking, extending back to the whole year beyond those that we handed out medals for, and those were valued more than just performing well at an event.

If you are one of our readers who attempts to guess the ranking, here are some clues – each of the 20 players attended at least five "Big" events, while 18 of them returned as winners from at least one of those. Although the year's two Majors weren't as highly regarded as in previous rankings due to there being so many other big events, 18 of our Top 20 players attended at least one out of MLG Columbus and ESL One Cologne.

The ranking is once again supported and powered by EGB.com, who are again a name partner only and not involved in deciding the list. Happy New Year to all of you and stay tuned over the next 20 days as we get warmed up for 2017's action!

#1 allu ENCE.ASUSROG A very successful year for the Finnish star player Aleksi 'allu' Jalli, who carried the Finnish all star team under the professional E-sports organisation ENCE. He later joined the famous FaZe clan and continues to perform. His goal is to win the ELEAGUE Major in January 2017

2017-01-01 15:31
Have you seen dev1ce's stats? He's been consistently amazing throughout the year, even when his team has been slumping
2017-01-01 16:58
I meant unlikely for 1 but 2 is possible. But I think p1mple will get 2.
2017-01-01 16:59
True! Device's performance has increased to a very high level compared to previous years..... I find it very likely for him to be in top 3 :D
2017-01-12 10:25
Maybe top 6, Astralis pretty much slumped the whole year (Dupreeh carried them through the quarters against fnatic) till they almost beat SK at oakland then won ECS, individually he's amazing atm but they need to shine at the major and other large events for device to be a definitive top 3 player.
2017-01-12 22:36
He needs to shine in an even within 2017 to get top two in 2016

CyberFocus isn't team, he is good AWPer, and he plays with AWP better than device.
2017-01-02 20:05
if he was better he would be in top 10 which he is not. so Device>>> cyberfocus
2017-01-02 20:06
Device has good stats because of eco frags, he is shit with AWP
2017-01-02 20:08
then you don´t watch csgo my friend. Device have a decent amount is eco but most are not exit or eco and if you think im talking about stats then plz leave.

You don't watch CS because you thought that cyberfocus was a team XD XD DANISH RETARDO TOFFEE DANISH NOOB

Remember Ence is a subsubtop team so easy to carry when you were in nip...
2017-01-01 15:14
wtf are you talking about? ENCE is a tier 1 team always expected to win majors.
2017-01-01 17:35
Is this a joke ? Because to win a major they have to at least qualify for it, and they're not. When Allu was in the team, they were 24th in the hltv ranking, and that's not a tier 1 team for me

Well gee, guess you'll have to adapt to us instead of us changing what has worked for years just to avoid some people who didn't do their research getting disappointed. I know, it must suck to be you now... But we're glad to you have you, I'm sure you'll stay tuned for the whole 20 days and maybe even have a better time than at said dungeon! :)

"Surpassing 2015 in number of big tournaments (this time there were 15 that we classified as such due to featuring many of the world's best teams and a $200,000+ prize pool)" When was the filter changed from $250,000 to $200,000?
2017-01-01 14:16
When StarSeries XIV Finals happened with all of the best teams attending we realized the prize pool shouldn't have a strict cutoff. For example Game Show which also had $200k isn't one of the big events cause only a few top teams at the time attended, but StarSeries XIV Finals is.
2017-01-01 14:19
Oh alright, so I guess it's more subjective now which events are "Big". I agree that StarSeries should be considered a big event, but it might be difficult to decide for some events in the future (WESG?)
2017-01-01 14:26
so same with ESL pro leaque S4 without VP Navi and Fnatic ?
2017-01-01 14:23
No, if you click on the Big events link, you'll see that one is included. It had 6 top 10 teams and 11 of the top 20 teams with a huge prize pool
2017-01-01 14:28
fnatic after shuffle lmao VP and Na'Vi just had to play better online, you cannot say it's a low tier tournament when top teams have been given a chance to qualify and didn't take it

Don't you think Dev1ce will lose some spots for not getting more titles? I would put him at 6, s1mple at 3. Dev1ce got stuck on semis/quarters alot. But maybe I'm wrong
2017-01-02 06:58
oskar wtf are wrong with you how could you ever think oskar would be top 20
2017-01-16 10:48
Hen1 and niko are those who doesn't win a big event is this year and are in the top 20

Some of the players that will be on the top 20: Coldzera Fallen Guardian Simple Stewie2k Scream Autimatic Snax Device
2017-01-01 14:35
autimatic and Magiskboy are the 2 players which didn't attend the majors and will be on the list. :)

It's not a popularity contest, my friend. It's based on stats. If f0rest isn't #1, he's most definitely in the top 3.
2017-01-02 15:08
F0REST WAS GOOD BUT HE WONT BE #1 MAYBE #2-3
2017-01-01 19:31
It's based on performances at big events throughout the entire year, f0rest has gotten 2 mvp-medals and a third mvp-mention before they gave out medals. Cold has gotten 1 to my knowledge.

2017-01-01 15:00
niko looooool maybe top 10. Yeah kennyS was 3 times better than niko in 2014 and he got 6th place LUL
2017-01-01 17:05
Suprise incoming, it's not 2016 anymore. And Kenny does not have half NiKo's skill.

2017-01-01 15:03
coldzera #1 undisputed a guy who drops 30 bombs in matches his team loses 16-9, unreal
2017-01-01 15:07
IMO The 2 who didn't go to majors but will be on the list are magiskboy and autimatic. The 2 who didn't win 1 big event are kennys and niko.
2017-01-01 15:08
Autimatic won't be on this top 20 for sure...
2017-01-01 15:18
Who do you think the 2 who didn't go to the major will be? One of them is magiskboy. The other is either autimatic or hen1. Based on the stats autimatic has done much better in the big events (2 semis + 1 win (and MVP)). While hen1 doing well in the smaller lans, he's had only quarter finals at big events at best while 2 awful 0.7 ratings at EPL S4 and EL S2. hltv.org/?pageid=247&statsfilter=2816&pl.. hltv.org/?pageid=247&playerid=8565&stats.. And no its not felps or boltz, they've both got awful stats at big events.
2017-01-01 15:25
I don't know man. This top 20 is pretty short... 3 or 4 players from SK by their achievements should be in the list. 2 or 3 from VP too. Olofmeister (old Fnatic was pretty good on the start of the last year)... 2 from NiP... 2 from Astralis... shox... 2 from Na'Vi... Niko... I don't know if there is space for players like magiskboy and autimatic.
2017-01-01 15:27
"18 of our Top 20 players attended at least one out of MLG Columbus and ESL One Cologne" So 2 players on the list didn't attend the majors. Its in the article m8 So that means 2 of these players - magiskboy, autimatic, Felps, hen1, boltz, allu will be on the list.
2017-01-01 15:34
So Top 20 HLTV is shit SK = Cold, FalleN, Fer and FNX VP = Snax, NEO and Byali Na'Vi = S1mple and Guardian Astralis = Device, Dupreeh and Kjaerbye G2 = Shox and ScreaM Mouz = NiKO NiP = F0rest and Get_Right Liquid = EliGe Fnatic = Olofmeister or Dennis Optic = Mixwell or Rush It's not a ranking, it's just all players that are above magiskboy, autimatic, Felps, hen1, boltz and allu.
2017-01-01 15:44
How you would put autimatic and optic players which performed for last 3 months ? LUL
2017-01-01 16:07
Yeah i agree about RUSH but Mixwell is playing really good since a long time... He's a fucking beast.
2017-01-01 16:07

When talking about a "big" tournament do we count amount of top teams at an event or it being 200k+ because nV won a 200k prize pool tournament early in the year Not the best teams I will admit but it still could be counted as a big tournament due to the prize pool. wiki.teamliquid.net/counterstrike/Game_S.. Notable teams at event nV (with kio) Ast (with cajunB ) Dig (with Kjaer) G2 (with ex6) c9 ( with Freak and stew) clg (with fugly pre slump)
2017-01-01 23:32
I saw that, but I don't think it counts. This is the list provided by HLTV: hltv.org/?pageid=193&statsfilter=2825

Kjaerbye and Magisk are the 2 players who didn't attend any majors this year, so it's impossible for auti and mixwell to be top 10
2017-01-10 09:02
You're quite right. It would still be deserved. Their inclusion on their teams, same apply here to loWel, gave their teams a really good bump and a better phase in the scene. Probabily k0nfig, who I completly forgot somehow would and in one of those spots, Mixwell's I'd say. And maybe Cajunb or Karrigan, as they changed their new teams for better also.

I think 1. Coldzera 2. Device 3. Fallen 4. s1mple simple and coldzera should be fix, but between Fallen and Device it is close. Fallen has way better results but Device has better stats. Because Luminosity/SK sometimes got carried by Coldzera too, I still think that Device was the better player in 2016, because he was clearly the star player of his team. But it is very very close. I think it comes down to preference. If one thinks that team achievements are more important than player stats than Fallen should be 2. .

how the fuck is fnx and fer on the list, they got carried by fallen and coldzera. Also how is flamie ther?? He got carried by guardian and s1mple to 1 tournament win. Individually tarik, mixwell and autimatic definately surpassed all 3 of them. This list is just biased against NA players. tarik and mixwell where the key to optics sucess even destroying astralis in eleague they consistently fragged exceptionally. As for autimatic, he was by far the most consistent player of 2016 while he played on cloud9 no matter how bad his team did he carried and fragged like a madcunt and definately should be on the top20 for the year
2017-01-18 15:47
Coldzera will be top 3. While automatic played outstanding, he joined C9 in August so he didn't get as much exposure. Not to mentioned they missed the last major.
2017-01-18 16:24
lmao you stupid cunt which doesnt know 1 year have 12 months
2017-01-18 22:08
doesnt matter when he joined, in the time that he joined he ran over everyone on most games including fnx and fer who where on this list cuz they got carried by coldzera and fallen

That's what I thought too, and I'm not even a NA fan. How come not a single NA player is on the top 20? I mean, Liquid, C9 and OG all played really well last year. Really, Stewie2k and Auti should be on this list. They're both young anyway, so this year they will be on top20 imo.

Finally 2016 is over. After olofmeisters and GuardiaNs injuries it only went downhill with the quality of teams until literally any team could win events. Lets hope now with the swedish/french/brazillian roster changes we can finally have stable tier 1 teams again.
