Video: Top 10 highlights of 2017

With 2017 now behind us, our video editor Radosław "MAKKU" Makuch has put together a highlight reel of the top 10 individual plays of the year.

At the end of 2017, HLTV.org's staff got together and rated the best individual actions of the last 12 months to make one big compilation of the finest plays of the year.

Unlike the previous two highlight reels, this time around there are players featured more than once: Astralis' Peter "dupreeh" Rasmussen and SK's Marcelo "coldzera" David, both providing two stunning plays to this top 10. Eight of the individual plays you are about to watch were produced on LAN, with no event providing more than one highlight. 

Press play below to relive the most spectacular plays of 2017 in this highlight reel by our own Radosław "MAKKU" Makuch, featuring coldzera, Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev, dupreeh and more!

agreed
2018-01-03 18:49
Didn't really understand the lack of Cold's Overpass highlight vs faze here. Or any of fallen's insane clutches throughout the year for that matter.

2018-01-03 23:24
Pls explain to me how cold's ace is in any way better than jdm's. Both major group stage against t2 teams, both awp aces, except jdm's was a 1v5 against match point with better shots, colds was easier shots into people whiffing on him.

haha but actually niko vs liquid on inferno should be in there
2018-01-03 17:50
true, but of course they picked one from ecozera doing a 4k or 5k vs ecos lul. also they rated coldzeras awp ace which was not 1v5 higher than jdm. Not only was jdms a 1v5, but it was map point during a MAJOR and had jdm died even once the game was over.
2018-01-03 18:27
to be fair cold's was also in a major

2018-01-03 18:21
Dupreeh's deagle play kinda won them the entire bo5, they were economically shattered and about to lose overpass. Considering all those circumstances, and how this is when teams were less likely towin ecos, it was an insane play
2018-01-03 20:05
#223

Spain Alser 
I did forget about the context, but imo xms' ace is a top 5 ace of all time and should be #1
2018-01-03 20:15
Why are you talking about circumstances? Its about highlights and clearly xms had a better play.
2018-01-04 00:19
A highlight can be "worth" more if it is performed in a high-stake situation imo. You cannot separate it from its context. Otherwise we would just have lucky aces by low level teams dominating the top plays.
2018-01-04 08:53
Alright so by your logic i will say this. Dosia's nade is missing but guess what as a highlight its not as good but as a circumstancial play its probably the best in 2017 so why is it missing ? This ranking is bullshit but considering that its from a danish site im not surprised to see dupreeh #1
2018-01-04 13:29
Listen i am not saying that only the importance matters, but i am saying that a great play can be even greater if it is done in a very important situation. Dosias play could not qualify here. It was very smart of him but top highlights normally require actual kills made by the player as well as high level demonstrations of aim. Getting five usp headshots or an ace with awp is MUCH more common than a (hs only?) deagle ace, and EVEN in a final. So if i look at the top plays dupreehs deagle ace was by far the most difficult play to pull off, and no question the best highlight of 2017.
2018-01-04 13:50
Oh so now you are saying that in order for a play to qualify you need kills right ? Well xms did a much better play 5 shots 5 headshots plus a 1v3 clutch and minors are important no matter what you say (nip can't go to a majors because they cant even make them for 2 straight majors) Case closed. Just using your logic now "top highlights normally require actual kills made by the player as well as high level demonstrations of aim" so there is no way that dupreeh had a better play than xms.
2018-01-04 14:52
Show me a play that is good enough for this top10 that does not contain kills? I simply dont think that is possible to find. "xms did a much better play 5 shots 5 headshots" BEEP! FALSE! it is endlessly easier to make 5 headshots with a usp than with a deagle. If you have played the game you will know that. In terms of difficulty, dupreehs play is better. Maybe xms looked cleaner or whatever but imo difficulty is a more important factor.
2018-01-04 16:47
Thanks for a good laugh. Xms play was better than dupreeh's but its a danish site so its biased. And also dupreeh's first kill was a deagle spray (impressive) 2 kill was a simple body shot. 3 kill was crazy and 4 was amazing too. 5 was a regular LE deagle spray. Xms play was better because it was more difficult and much more precise. And if you want to talk about importance then hobbit's clutches against immortals should be number 1 because importance and because it was major finals right ? Bullcrap
2018-01-04 17:25
hObbit's play was nowhere near as good as dupreeh's still. that deagle ace is honestly one of the craziest deagle aces I have ever seen. And if you add in the fact that it was in such an important match and AGAINST RIFLES, well then it's a no-brainer and a clear #1 pick. As to your comment about HLTV being a danish (based) site and therefore being biased: I'm pretty sure the people picking these top plays are from a wide variety of countries, at least judging by how international the writer's staff is.
2018-01-04 21:03
Look man all that im doing is using your logic. When you are talking about circumstances im just going to say this hobbit was in pgl finals inferno match it was last map. All im hearing from you that finals added something which in that case nobody can overtake hobbits spray clutch or eleague majors xyp9x 1v3 on overpass with 1 hp. Because hey circumstances and also that happened at a major.
2018-01-04 22:21
You are simplifying my argument, mate. I am not saying that circumstances are everything. I am saying that they play a role, but not that they are the ONLY determining factor. Aim and general "craziness"/entertainment of the play definitely also plays a big part. When you put together the importance of dupreehs ace as well as the aim-aspect, then it's simply the best play.
2018-01-05 15:19
So minors mean nothing and the aim-aspect of xms play was worse ? Ok understood. Thanks for the laugh.
2018-01-05 17:56
No reason to be rude.
2018-01-09 23:29
But let's just agree to disagree, shall we?
2018-01-05 15:20
that cold ace was boring, they should put the 3k spray vs faze.

+1 for sure JDM's play and even Nifty's were better than cold's
2018-01-03 19:20
Should have been top1 cuz that is going to be the only highlight in JDM’s career. Actually I don’t understand how G2 lost that round, welp actually I do, by doing the most retarded peeks 1 by 1. This top 10 is trash compared to 2016 or 2015 :/

Jdm, nifty’s plays deserved better rankings, personally jdm 1v5 best. I thought plays like f0rest’s ace against mouz would be here and a few others but I forgot. Dupreeh’s deagle ace is underwhelming, he got a headshot off the recoil and 1 juan but the rest were just bodyshots, to be honest I wouldn’t even consider it top 10 plays. The edit is nice though, it gives me a ‘and just sit back, relax and reminisce through past 2017’ Overall thanks HLTV for this video and I wish the team a happy new year Edit: NiKo vs Liquid F0rest vs mousesports Hobbit vs immortals

2018-01-04 00:06
He had only 3 headshots...The 3rd to the last. The faze players were blind and baited by other astralis members. The 3rd kill is insane but the rest were meh except for the juan. I mean which is harder? Juaning someone or just crouch spraying with the deagle which isn’t that hard close range? To each their own, have a nice day

Dupreeh top 1 XDDDDDDD
2018-01-03 17:50
Dupreeh's ace was #1 for many reasons: -First, they were 4 headshots consecutively and very fast without missing shots against a full buy -second, the overpass game was about to be lost for Astralis as they were shattered economically, but that deagle play allowed them to secure overpass, and potentially the entire series.
2018-01-03 20:08
yea the second point is a really big one (especially after they ended up winning the whole thing)
2018-01-03 21:34
If we are talking about circumstances then dosia's nade is #1 but its not and its about highlights and dupreeh didnt have the best play this year.

That xms ace remains one of the sickest clutches I have ever seen. It's just so incredibly clean with 5 bullets and all HS's. But at the same time, it was also borderline stupid. He took enormous risks. For instance by going for the denial ... through the Molotov ... with a single bullet in the clip. Who the hell does that in an official match?

Such a great top 10, even though I don't fully agree with the order of the clips! Nontheless, here's to an amazing 2018!
2018-01-03 21:49
The last clip from Dupreeh come on, body shots ...
2018-01-03 21:50

Great video. :) Although the impact of the top clip was incredible, other clips were far more incredible. Have a good day, HLTV.

COLDZERA, THE MAN, THE MYTH, THE BEAST! It's missing the other one from dupreeh against SK, Forest 1 tap Ace way better than dupreeh #1 place and the clutch from Fallen against Faze when he stopped the defuser and won the IEM Sydney or the retake in cache when he jumped in the bomb with a AWP (Balls of Steel), either one should be #10.

imo this is the sickest best of 2017 video so far all clips look so clean and nice 3 is undeserved tho, colds inferno ace was nothing special i love the electronic one on nuke and obviously the xms one

awp ace from coldzera was not worty of top plays dont get me wrong it was very good performance but not that impressive.. overall top 10 plays of 2017 are so sexy :D ty hltv <3
2018-01-03 22:57
I hope I live long enough to see a HLTV editor use "mirv_deathmsg cfg localPlayerLifeTimeMod " command once. Current way its pretty hard to keep track of what has happened, unless you remember the play. I just dont get it why thats good.

Good edit, but the rankings could've even better in my honest opinion. F0rest Deagle + AK ace on cache is definitely missing. Coldzera's #3 is over-rated as well as Dupreeh's #1 as for me #4 by s1mple was way more impressive than both of them. Also, I feel like XMS' should've gotten #1. What he did is something we'll not see in a very long time. With that being said, overall a good video but rankings were poorly done here and there, but then again, it's just my opinion.

How I didn't see xms's FIVE one taps before!? Holy It's far better than dupreeh's ace. VERY poor choices overall, we saw at least 6 better plays than these on the video. Cold ace vs BIG was just regular.

nice edit
2018-01-04 11:20
Honestly, in what world is coldzera or xms play better than dupreehs? What he did was by far the most difficult out of all the plays. And it even happened in a final match against faze...
2018-01-04 13:53
xms, s1mple and nifty best clips
