Top 20 players of 2017: FalleN (6)

Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo takes the sixth spot on our top 20 ranking of the year, powered by EGB.com. SK Gaming's veteran was one of the top performers in the playoff stages of big events throughout 2017 and one of the best at opening up rounds and clutching them.

Top 20 players of 2017: Introduction

The unflagging motor of Brazilian CS, Gabriel "⁠FalleN⁠" Toledo, is part of a dwindling group of players who can boast a career going all the way back to the early-mid 2000s. Between 2005 and 2008, FalleN got his first notable results, especially at WCG events. In 2008, FalleN started to make himself known, getting a fourth-place finish at WCG with several good performances. The following year, the Brazilian AWPer would be asked to join the country’s best team FireGamers, linking up with the likes of Lincoln "⁠fnx⁠" Lau, Renato "⁠nak⁠" Nakano, and Bruno "⁠bit⁠" Lima.

Since then, it was uphill for FalleN in CS 1.6, and in 2010 he played several international tournaments. First came ESWC, where FireGamers ended in 5-6th place, and then the WCG Pan-American against, which they won over Jordan "⁠n0thing⁠" Gilbert’s Evil Geniuses, a team he would beat again at the IEM V American Championship Finals. That yeah, FalleN also finished 4th at the main WCG event after dominating the local qualifier.

In 2011, with CS 1.6 losing some steam FalleN dabbled in CS:S while still playing 1.6. FalleN’s last event back then was with PlayArt, at a WCG Pan-American event in which he beat n0thing and Braxton "⁠swag⁠" Pierce’s Ultimax Gaming.

"I always believed CS was going to be a big esport. I bet on it for many years, although I was cautious and had a plan B in case my expectations didn’t become reality. In 2012, as I was getting the Games Academy project underway, I also studied electrical engineering for eight hours a day at a public university.

"In 2013 I enrolled at the Federal University of Curitiba (UTFPR), but that only lasted two weeks. One day, a professor asked me “why are you here?” and I answered "this is my plan B. I need a future in case my life as a gamer doesn’t work out." I didn’t show up the following day. After thinking about that conversation for hours, I decided to risk even more and go all-in on my dream, putting 100% of my energy into Games Academy and other projects."

It wasn’t until 2013 that FalleN switched over to CS:GO, as the scene in Brazil was considerably small at the time, and he plyed his trade for an "FPS" squad playing several games at the same time, alongside longtime teammate Fernando "⁠fer⁠" Alvarenga as well as fnx, Lucas "⁠LUCAS1⁠" Teles, and Henrique "⁠HEN1⁠" Teles. That team played their first international event at ESWC 2014, but a 21st-24th finish prompted changes in the scene. By merging KaBuM and TD, FalleN made the first Brazilian team that would have some sort of international success.

"Competition always ran in my blood. In Brazil we had different eras where some games had more competition than others. Many times, playing one or two relevant tournaments per year wasn’t enough. I wanted more. The challenge of playing more than one game at the same time always instigated me because I wanted to test my potential. I was a decent player for a Brazilian level when I played both CS:Source and CS 1.6 at the same time.

"When I played CrossFire, CS 1.6, and CS:GO, we were champions in almost every tournament we played in Brazil. The lack of tournaments and opportunities early on in CS:GO and the fact that other publishers like the one running CrossFire were supporting  competition in the country made me embrace the idea of competing on a high level in Brazil.

"When we decided to make the multi-fps lineup I wanted two players, fnx and fer. We had no idea who the two others would be. We even thought about playing with two CrossFire players, but that lineup never materialized. We ultimately decided to go with the only two players who had some experience in 1.6 and who were playing CrossFire, HEN1 and LUCAS1.

"That lineup had a lot of chemistry and we competed together for the first time in an international CS:GO event at ESWC in Paris, having won most of the tournaments we played in Brazil in several games."

KaBuM.TD had on their books FalleN, fer, Ricardo "⁠boltz⁠" Prass, Lucas "⁠steel⁠" Lopes, and Caio "⁠zqkS⁠" Fonseca. After winning the Brazilian qualifier for MLG X Games Aspen, that lineup was able to catch the attention of the international community after taking a map, Mirage, FalleN & co.’s best, against Cloud9, by a 16-4 scoreline.

"It was very difficult to get enough money to go there, we knew we weren’t going to go there to win but as a first step to evolve and begin our journey. Due to the lack of funding it would have been really hard to compete with the existing structure, which is why we merged the two organizations, which had both the financial potential and the will to make it happen. That was the first lineup that got Brazil to a Major.

"I say that the Brazilian qualifier for MLG Aspen was the most important tournament of our lives. It allowed us to travel internationally with trips and lodging covered, which at that time was uncommon in Brazilian competitions (with the exception of the WCG of previous years). Our showing there, mostly the win over Cloud9, is what got us invited to the Katowice Major qualifier.

"I can’t describe the happiness I felt at the time, when I saw opportunities starting to appear. The eyes of the community finally looked towards Brazil and South America, and it was thanks to the community (fans and players, especially flusha) that we were able to finance our trip to the team’s first Major in Katowice.”

FalleN earned his first ticket to a Major at the ESL One Katowice 2015 Main Qualifier

After making a top-eight finish at the Major qualifier and securing a spot at the $250,000 event, KaBuM.TD made the jump to North America, where they played in the ESL Pro League and in the FACEIT League, quickly becoming a top side in the region. One of the most important changes in the team’s history came after a group stage exit at ESWC 2015, when FalleN brought Marcelo "⁠coldzera⁠" David on board.

After replacing zqkS on the roster, coldzera quickly became one of the best players in the world, and it also meant FalleN could go back to being the main AWPer in the team, his longtime role. Having secured a spot at ESL One Cologne by finishing 5-8th in Katowice and settled in California, FalleN saw the perfect opportunity to bring on another Brazilian team, which ended up being Games Academy, the winners of FalleN’s Games Academy Golden Chance.

"When we decided to move to a slightly better house in Lancaster, California, across the street from where we had lived, I saw an opportunity to bring more great players who were in Brazil and had no opportunities. There’s no use in having talented players if they do not have opportunities, and I suffered a lot because of that during my whole career.

"Bringing the Games Academy project in partnership with Azubu, which financed the project and helped Ricardo [dead] and Camila, we decided to bring more Brazilians to live the dream that not long before was also mine."

Under Keyd and Luminosity the Brazilian lineup played two more Majors, and while they were able to keep Legend status, the team was unable to perform in best-of-threes, making deep runs in tournaments very hard. That prompted steel and boltz to be dropped and fnx and Epitacio "⁠TACO⁠" de Melo to be brought into the starting lineup. The change had an immediate effect on the team as Luminosity went on to take second place, losing 1-2 to fnatic, at the FACEIT Stage 3 Finals.

2016 was the breakout year for FalleN & co., as they became one of the dominant forces in top-tier CS. That year, FalleN had an incredible 8 EVPs and 1 MVP, becoming the second best player of the year, only trailing behind teammate coldzera. The first tournament win for Luminosity was the MLG Major in Columbus, which was followed by wins at DreamHack Austin—where FalleN was named MVP—and at the ESL Pro League Season 3 Finals.

Among a plethora of deep runs in tournaments, several finals that couldn’t be closed out, and a few semi-final runs, FalleN & co., now under the SK banner, were once again able to bag a Major, their second in a row, at ESL One Cologne 2016 before closing the year out with several second and third-fourth place finishes.

With fnx out of the team late in 2016, SK played the first event of the year, the ELEAGUE Major, with Ricardo "⁠fox⁠" Pacheco. While the team had been practicing with João "⁠felps⁠" Vasconcellos, who would only be officially announced in February, he was ineligible to play in Atlanta due to Major transfer restrictions. With the stand-in, SK, the Brazilian team was able to take a respectable third-fourth place. Personally, FalleN had a 1.05 rating, fourth in the team, and a 72.4 ADR, in what would be a slow start to the year.

SK at the ELEAGUE Major, the first event of 2017

The second event of the year, DreamHack Masters Las Vegas, was also average for FalleN as SK—now with felps—lost in the final to Virtus.pro. In Las Vegas, FalleN averaged a 1.02 rating, once again fourth in the team, ending the tournament with more maps with ratings below the 1.0 mark than above.

The two following tournaments, IEM Katowice and StarSeries Season 3 Finals, were where FalleN, and the whole team, dipped lowest. For the Brazilian AWPer, it was the only two tournaments of the year with ratings below 1.0. In Poland, SK went out in 11-12th place after two victories and four losses in the round-robin group stage. FalleN only had one map with a positive rating, in a 16-6 victory over Heroic. At the StarSeries Season 3 Finals, SK also went out in the groups, in 9-11th place, and FalleN posted his worst rating of the year, 0.86.

"I had a rough start to the year, trying to adjust my game and testing the team in action with a more aggressive felps, trying to find space and make plays we didn’t before. I was good in the first tournament, but terrible in the second and third ones. That’s when we realized our previous structure was more adequate and reliable than the way we were playing. Then we started to organize the team in the same way we did in 2016.

Having figured out that felps’ aggressive style didn’t work for the team, FalleN decided to revert to their previous style, giving FalleN freedom to make plays once again. That change was noticed immediately at cs_ummit, a laid-back tournament that SK were able to win and where the 26-year-old got his first EVP of the season after delivering a 1.22 rating. The AWPer was particularly solid on the Terrorist side in California as he ended with a season-high 1.36 T-rating.

"At the beginning of the year I was going through something I’ve never gone through in my 15-year career as a CS player. Excessive criticism from fans, as well as from myself because I wasn’t giving my best and playing at a level that was below the one I consider I’m usually at.

"FalleN was always a friendly person, who tries to stay away from trouble and avoids controversy. BADFALLEN is the opposite, he appeared when I felt like I wasn’t able to put up with some of the things I was experiencing. Some people have a very short memory. You can do thousands of good things and it just takes one bad thing for people to come out with a hammer and crucify you. Such is the world. Even if you’re used to it, depending on how intense it is, it can still hit you.

"BADFALLEN appeared to get FalleN out of that situation, and he did it. It started randomly when I was playing Rank S and one of my teammates threw a flash in my face even though I had communicated what I was doing. In the heat of the moment, I put my sunglasses on and told him to flash me again, ironically of course. That is when I saw the opportunity to bring my alter ego to life."

FalleN stabilized after that, and the team went back to being one of the dominating forces in CS. Their next event took place in Australia, which played host to an IEM stop. In Sydney, SK emerged victorious after beating FaZe 3-1 in the final, and FalleN was awarded another EVP. He only had the fourth-highest rating on the team, but it was still a very commendable 1.22. In the three games won against FaZe in the final, FalleN had 1.10, 1.44, and 1.17 map ratings.

At the ESL Pro League Season 5 Finals, SK went out in the semi-finals to G2, a team they tend to struggle against. FalleN was still awarded an EVP, however, and deservedly so as he was second-best in his team with a 1.22 rating and a year-high 83.1 ADR. SK went back to winning ways at DreamHack Summer, although FalleN had a personal dip as he went down to a 1.05 rating, being rated fourth in the team.

SK and FalleN struggled early in the year

SK doubled up at the ECS Season 3 Finals, where FalleN earned his fourth EVP mention of the year despite a relatively low 1.09 rating (third best among the squad), in part thanks to his team-leading 0.58 DPR and a very high KAST (72.8%). The team then visited Cologne, a familiar city for SK, whose headquarters and bootcamp facilities are located there. Right before the PGL Major, FalleN had a great event, leading his team to a first-place finish and earning an MVP award with a 1.24 rating—second highest of the year—and an impressive 1.32 impact.

"Technological advancement for demo analysis, the addition of coaches and analysts to teams, internationale teams being formed, and a great number of competitions and new talents appearing make this one of the most competitive eras of CS. Everything you do today will have been studied tomorrow. You have to have the basics nailed down really well to not just be a one-hit wonder. It’s also important to know how innovate which is what makes the difference in winning titles, tournament after tournament. How to do this without much time to practice is the secret to be on top and get ahead of the rest. There were many tight periods during the year and in most of them we were amongst the best."

The Major was FalleN’s worst memory of the year, as, according to him, "poor computers and the jump bug" marred what was supposed to be one of the most anticipated tournaments of the year. There, SK went out in the quarter-finals to Astralis, with whom they were paired after losing to BIG in the group stage. FalleN ended the tournament with a 1.01 rating, one of his lowest of the year.

In Malmö, SK also went out in the quarter-finals, but FalleN gave a better account of himself, boasting a 1.13 rating and seven 1vsX situations won. After Malmö, SK went to Mykonos, where they got a third-place finish, with FalleN keeping an upward trajectory individually as he brought in a 1.16 rating.

SK were back in business after a tumultuous start to 2017

At ESL One New York, SK had another semi-final run, and FalleN had his highest rating of the year at 1.29 — with above-average ratings in every game and only one of them below 1.20 —although he was only the third-best in the team. Despite the team playing well individually, they lost in a tight semi-final to Liquid.

SK had a rough ELEAGUE Premier, going out in the group stage following back-to-back defeats to Heroic. Before EPICENTER, however, everything changed. That was boltz’s first tournament with the team, and SK went all the way to claim their first title in a while. In St. Petersburg FalleN was awarded yet another EVP—his fifth— after delivering a 1.23 rating. After that, SK flew to California, for IEM Oakland, where FalleN had a 1.11 rating in the team's semi-final run, the third best in the team.

"Our team is special. It’s the combination of peculiarities of every players on the team that makes us strong. The way of thinking, the efficiency during training, the respect towards and constant research on our opponents. Talent and innovation distances us from other teams. When our “machine” is working, we have coldzera at his highest level, fer being unpredictable, making our game easier and being a terror for the opponent, TACO’s dedication and mastery playing some of the hardest roles in the game for the benefit of the team, and now boltz in the passive role and filling the holes we need him to complete us.

"Knowing what to expect from my teammates, understanding what and how they like to do things, makes my life a lot easier as leader and that way I know what to do during the rounds. In addition, bringing boltz on has allowed me to have more freedom and be able to take more risks which is one of the strongest parts of my game."

SK bagged the last two events they played in 2017, BLAST Pro Series in Copenhagen, where FalleN was presented with his second MVP medal of the year, in large part thanks to an absolutely stunning performance in the grand final against Astralis. The experienced Brazilian, who racked up 38 frags in the last map of the final, also had an extremely high 1.27 Impact, his third highest of the year.

SK closed out the year as #1 in the ranking

Finally, SK took the ESL Pro League Season 6 title in Odense, and, as the second best-rated player on the winning team (1.22), FalleN was once again awarded an EVP, his sixth and last. The 26-year-old featured in the top five in eight different categories, leading in none, and was the highest rated player in two of the three maps won in the much anticipated final against FaZe.

"I consider this year much more of a success than the one in which we won the Majors. We won both Majors in 2016, it was a good year, and we placed high many times, but we failed too much in big finals and let titles slip away.

"In 2017, we won eight titles in nine finals. The team is more mature and committed, and, in my opinion, the Majors have lost some prestige. The computers in Krakow weren’t in the best condition, which is absurd for events that are supposed to be the biggest of the year. We won a lot of tournaments in 2017 that could have easily been described as Majors, and, for us, they were. Beating the best teams in the world is what motivates us and keeps us going. Valve has to work better on their tournaments, bring more innovations and exceed the expectations of fans and players."

Why was FalleN the sixth best player of 2017?

One of the main reasons FalleN is ranked this high is because of his outstanding performances in playoffs at big events (1.14 rating over 65 maps, the fifth highest), which makes him one of only a handful of players who were able to achieve better ratings in playoffs than in group stages.

"When I’m on the stage or when I play an elimination match I know there is nothing to lose. I’m different from the rest and what I had to go through to get here was different. So when I get in the server I know I’m unique, and that’s my motivation. I play to change my life, to change my family’s life, the lives of the players on my team and of the thousands of fans, especially those in my home country. The moment on stage is my moment of consecration. I don’t play "not to lose." I play to win.

"I take risks others don’t take. I make decisions others would never make. Sometimes they work out, sometimes they don’t, and I know the person next to me will stay with me, regardless if we win or lose.  That’s my motivation. My team counts on me, and I have to deliver my best."

FalleN was also the fifth player with the most standout performances at big events, garnering two MVPs, at ESL One Cologne and BLAST Pro Series, and six EVPs, at cs_summit, IEM Sydney, ESL Pro League Season 5 Finals, ECS Season 3 Finals, EPICENTER, and ESL Pro League Season 6 Finals.

boltz's addition gave FalleN the freedom to make plays again

Although he had just the seventh-highest AWP kills per round ratio at 0.37, he had the most kills with the 'Big Green' (1575), which still ranks him high on the list of best snipers of the year.

As usual, FalleN was one of the hardest players to kill (0.60 DPR, second-lowest), one of the best clutch players of the year, winning 59 1vsX situations (ranked second), and one of the best at opening up rounds, boasting a 61% success rate (second).

"I practice, I study, I learn. I’ve been doing this for 15 years. I’ve never gone more than two weeks without playing Counter-Strike. I never believe I’ve reached the limit of what I can learn. If you play as much as I do the way I do, you can also make it to the top. And remember: the amount of practice does not equal the quality of it. I didn’t make it here alone. My teammates and my team are essential to my success. I would have probably not accomplished any of the things I have accomplished without the right people by my side. I’m always grateful to them, every day of my life.

"And, while we are on this, I’m second in a lot of things. I don’t mind not being first. What I care about is always trying to be the best. Knowing that you tried to be the best should always be comforting. Especially in defeat. If you’re not ready to lose, you’ll never be prepared to be a champion."

While all of the aforementioned statistics means he stood out in many ways as a top five player, his poor performance at the beginning of the year affected his overall consistency compared to other players, leaving him just outside the top five on our ranking.

Bold Prediction

FalleN went with a Brazilian player when asked to predict someone who will break out in 2018, and that player was Luminosity’s star, Marcelo "⁠chelo⁠" Cespedes, who had a good showing at the ESL Pro League Finals in Odense, where he averaged a 1.34 rating.

Brazil Marcelo "⁠chelo⁠" Cespedes

"I saw a bit of the level chelo reached at the end of 2017, and I think he has potential to become a great player. There are many talented players who can be in the ranking next year, but here’s a tip for everyone: be the best your team needs, not the best that you think you have to be.

Good luck!"

device getting higher spot has nothing to do with one match jesus people look at the simple chart, device has almost zero red for the year, FalleN had a ton of red; difficult games due to their roster situation at the time
2018-01-14 18:32
Yes, I know that. Like someone said to me once: HLTV = NUMBERS Dev1ce Numbers > Fallen Numbers Dev1ce Skills < Fallen Skills It was just a joke, because i think 75% of pple would say fallen > dev1ce, but the way Dev1ce dominated Fallen in PGL was amazing. It looke like Fallen was just a normal player and Dev1ce a God Among men.

Apparently he was sick back then so probably gave his all to make sure they got past SK, indeed it was a disgusting performance
2018-01-15 13:13
not even f0rest smh, instead fucking elige
2018-01-13 14:29
Or adren, or steiw or rain or konfig
2018-01-13 14:32
but like srsly, elige did not deserve that spot but i think forest should have been like 20th-17th (or fox) kappa
2018-01-13 14:33
Ahhahaa fox lolll
2018-01-13 14:34
f0rest was the only reason nip didn't go outside the top 20 this year. he should have at least 15 on top 20..
2018-01-13 16:57
rain will be in the top5 dood
2018-01-13 14:46
Think with me fer is on the top 5 cold to device and niko?
2018-01-13 14:48
its obvious whos left in top5 5 device 4 rain 3 fer 2 niko 1 cold
2018-01-13 14:50
1st cold 2nd.... 3rd rain 4th..... 5th.... fer,niko,device and no one left to mention i guess who can be top 5 material
2018-01-13 14:59
I think fer il be on top2
2018-01-13 15:11
Kind of doubt it when NiKo has 2 MVP medals for 2017 whereas fer only has one + a higher rating which is probably what mostly matters for HLTV
2018-01-13 17:53
I agree but not completely. FalleN had two MVPs and got bested by dev1ce

2018-01-13 15:52
name 3 Premier LAN tournaments in 2017 where s1mple made top 4.
2018-01-13 16:57
are you honestly trying to compare a 1.32 rating and a 1.06 rating? Are you for real?
2018-01-13 17:07
all im saying is that f0rest kept his team relevant as much has simple did navi, if simple can be top 10 without his team winning almost anything, then surely f0rest should be top 20 somewhere.
2018-01-13 17:28
thing is na'vi actually made it to any events. and they got out of groups most the time. That's the difference maker. NiP was never really at any events and when they were it was weak af opponents or they didn't make it out of groups.
2018-01-13 20:27
Did u miss the event(forgot its name, sorry.) Where they beat SK in the semi finals, 2-1 and Faze inteh finals 3-2? (I believe, i may be fking retarded here)
2018-01-14 00:12
That's 1 event. times they've lost in the group stage in 2017: IEM 11 Starladder Season 3 EPL Season 5 (online season) EU Minor Krakow ELEAGUE Premier EU Minor for Boston EPL Season 6 Finals Last place at Blast Pro ECS Season 4 (online season) vs times they made top 4: DH Open Valencia 1st (tier 2/3 at best) DH Malmö 3-4th (legit placement. beat Na'Vi and Gambit in Bo3) Hellcase Cup #6 1st (Tier 3 online tournament where they got invited into top 8 vs Binary Dragons) IEM Oakland 1st (unbelievable overperformance, legit win tho) It takes the entire year into account. So the 1 time they got an insane first place vs the 9 times they failed to get anything at all. You render IEM Oakland as the exception to the rule and not the rule.
2018-01-14 13:29
you can argue that, im not saying f0rest should be ranked higehr than s1mple, what I am saying is that he should be ranked SOMEWHERE in top 20
2018-01-14 00:32
eh I wouldn't rank a player that doesn't play at any major and also only has a 1.06 rating and doesn't play in the majors should not be in the top 20. He doesn't have the ratings of a superstar and he also doesn't have any of the placings. IMO what he and his team did in 2017 was not enough to grant top 20.
2018-01-14 13:33
+1 Can't argue with this.
2018-01-13 19:22
I thought Stewie would be in top 20

2018-01-13 14:33

2018-01-13 14:39
Too true and too blind(the C9 fan) to see the fact he isn't top 20 worthy.
2018-01-13 18:31
EliGE should have got like 20th spöt, not 12th tbh.
2018-01-13 14:33
Elige deserved 12th and Twistzz should be on the list too.

The argument of HLTV analyzes only equal stats are speaking ai not glue, so what for the numbers of titles, mvp and evps in the image? you have to consider the set, if you get all HLTV stats from open kills, clutch, flash, suport, awp kills, success in opening duels, etc ... in all stats possible Dev1ce and Fallen compete for positions each wins in a different type, still has the championships expired 9x2, mvps 2x0 EVPS 5 from Fallen ... Fallen played bad at the beginning of the year, Dev1ce did not play at the end of the year..

No I didnt thought that s1mple would be in the top 3 of the HLTV top 20. I said he SHOULD be there because he was simply the best player of the year. But what to expect from a person like you. Instead of actually thinking about what I am saying you just make up stuff I said.

2018-01-13 17:33
Im not putting myself into any argument. Since he wants to talk about the word "overrated" i need to point some things out but since he is delusional he still tries to win the argument. And for yourself calling others kids doesnt make you mature. Have a nice day.
2018-01-13 18:08
i thought you were smart but actually not. you cant even argue why device isnt overrated since he was stating the fact that he's overrated. argue first then talk big mouth :D
2018-01-13 18:18
Okay, this dude is elite with every sinlge weapon in the game. When he started to awp his teammates started to set him up and with gla1ve igl'ing they became #1 team in the world for sometime. In 2015 he was mostly an rifler and for half of 2016 an awper and still was #3 both years. Now when he purely was an awper he is top5 and the best match to show his superstar skill is Pgl major quarterfinals. Here but its clear that device is not overrated and is a top 5 player. And your argument was horrible because only thing that you can say that i have a shitty argument which means that you have nothing to counter my thoughts. Be humble and be quiet.
2018-01-13 18:22
-he played less map than fallen, stats dont lie -he always be the last man alive and he's not a guy that you want in clutch situation while fallen did. dont forget fallen is an IGL but since HLTV rank is basically shit since only look at the stats conc :he's good but he's not a player that you wanna see in big pressure. he rarely performs at big pressure like niko.
2018-01-13 18:34
Yes he played less maps but fallen was trash at the start of the year. And if you are talking that device is always last one alive then fallen should be higher than coldzera too.
2018-01-13 18:57
device didnt played in the end of the 2017, thats not equal to fallen who played every tournament in 2017 except ECS ur logic doesnt make any sense because u must be new in CS. fallen rarely last man alive.

2018-01-13 14:27
Yea i wouldnt be surprised if retarded hltv puts rain on 5 and device on 4 xd
2018-01-13 14:47
I guess but then rain in the shoes of kennyS.
2018-01-13 15:07
That would make no sense
2018-01-13 19:19
It would 'cause he's not better than him and he should be #7-8 max.
2018-01-13 19:25
Rain has been consistent all year, so i’ll have to disagree with you
2018-01-13 19:26
He was just fine throughout the year and his break out happened to be in the end of the year... If that's enough for the spot he's got, excuse but the list is garbage.

Yeah, The clutchs statics, opening duels, say this... He only play "badly" in The First 2 months because The Felps addition and he have tô change him play style a bit. But after that he Destroy anyone. Just like ALL SK.
2018-01-13 14:09
common =/= come on
2018-01-13 15:10
but read the post: in several events SK won he was just the fourth best of the team. but he definetely sould be above than device. he is the best IGL of the history.

I mean, there is alot of arguments to say fallen is #5. But there is also alot of arguments to say that device is #5.. So we can't really blame hltv too much. And where are you checking device evps?

holy.. cold has a potential to not to be the #1 of the year according to the FALLEN's #6 spot.
2018-01-13 14:03
If you really think about it, Fallen wasn't great at the begining of the year, he stats it's not the great, I still would put him as #5, but device is a great player too... think this way, Fallen was able to put 2 player of his team in top 3. Without Fallen's strats, neither Cold and Fer would be top 3.
2018-01-13 14:44

That's the most likely order, unless they put device above rain, which should be a crime. But I can understand it, honestly.

The argument of HLTV analyzes only equal stats are speaking ai not glue, so what for the numbers of titles, mvp and evps in the image? you have to consider the set, if you get all HLTV stats from open kills, clutch, flash, suport, awp kills, success in opening duels, etc ... in all stats possible Dev1ce and Fallen compete for positions each wins in a different type, still has the championships expired 9x2, mvps 2x0 EVPS 5 from Fallen ... Fallen played bad at the beginning of the year, Dev1ce did not play at the end of the year..

Best overall csgo player in the world IMO, best IGL (which also includes having a leader of men personality to keep his players in check), very intelligent as a player, crazy mechanical skills, one of the best gamesenses out there, consistent and always comes up in the biggest moments when his team needs him. Shame that the start to his year was so bad, he deserved a top3 for two years straight imo
2018-01-13 14:08
yes, he started this year so bad but device literally didn't even play for the last months of this year
2018-01-13 14:09
true lmao, maybe it was because of the major title
2018-01-13 14:10
6 tournament titles > 1 major and 1 tournament title
2018-01-13 14:11
Its hard to affect your stats when you aren't playing, so they'd be slightly more inflated than they should be by the end of the year.
2018-01-13 18:43
HLTV logic: don't play for two months > play poorly for two months.

2018-01-13 16:19
device over fallen lol. I'll laugh so hard if device gets a higher place than rain aswell

well its not hltv's fault that everyone forgot how shit fallen played in the first half of 2017
2018-01-13 14:54
And how about device being shit during the whole year (not a single MVP and only 2 titles). I mean, sorry, not the whole year since he "got sick" and skipped the last quarter... winning a major should not rank him that high, otherwise Hobbit > device.

Lol, how was he shit the entire year? have you seen his event stats? his rating is LITERALLY above 1.00 in EVERY tournament except the last one he played, the one where the sickness really got to him and he has to stay away from it for the rest of the year.
2018-01-13 15:07
1.08 rating, no MVP in 2017, missed a whole quarter, chokes @ important matches (eleague final and pgl major semi), and yet... top 5 player in the World!!! Lets be honest, the guy is a group stage hero.
2018-01-13 15:16
actually hes rated 1.18 which is much different but whatever floats your boat.
2018-01-13 15:17
Toileto talking
2018-01-13 17:15
Btw he didn’t miss “a whole quarter”. You are over exaggerating to try and make your arguments stronger... Device’s last game in 2017 was the 15th of November at IEM Oakland. Astralis’s last match was 17th of December, so he didn’t play for 1 Month - “a quarter” is 3 months

Wtf really? Device is in better position than him? How? Fallen was better and more impacting the whole year
2018-01-13 14:24
no, you forgot about the first half of the year, which was shit for fallen. His performance overall in the first half was in no way even a top 10 performance.. people should be happy that he was still able to get #6 despite that first half poor performance. if he really was this consistent all year long, then he would have gotten #2

best igls doesnt mean anything. Igls is not a factor in ranking. also # of wins doesnt matter that much in individual skill since its a TEAM game.. also FalleN was completely trash compared to now in the first half of 2017... this is a completle ydifferent fallen. if you take only the sceond half of 2017, then fallen was the #2 player in the world. if you take the first half of 2017, fallen would be like #13 or something...
2018-01-13 14:56
I know that you are an Astralis fan (and a fallen hater), but do you really think that device deserves a top 5 finish in 2017? I mean, i am not saying that he is a bad player, he is great, but i really cant see him above fallen this year.
2018-01-13 15:38
“device was only good in first half” and fallen was only good in second half.
2018-01-13 18:27
5 titles in first half 1 MVP What weed are you smoking?
2018-01-13 19:18
Rating below 1 for the first 4 months of the year; out in groups 2 times because of him; 4th or 5th best player in the team at most events they attended. Two tier 1 titles that he got carried for. What MVP? LOL do you know what first half means? Fanboys lose all brain cells so quickly.
2018-01-13 20:05
WTF??? 6? REALLY? HLTV.JOKE
2018-01-13 14:26
you gotta be kidding me, he's at least top 5, fucking shit list
2018-01-13 14:26
NO way this is real. how? Fallen should 100% be in top 3. 1) Amazing awper and is really consistent with it and is in some people’s eyes the best awper in the world. 2) Probably the best IGL in the world right now and has helped sk win so many trophies in 2017.

2018-01-13 14:48
Kennys choke on the Major and Fallen played bad in the first 4 month of the year and also after PGL major untill Epicenter, The reason Device on top 5 is he is very consistent and played well on Major :v

gg fallen lmao
2018-01-13 17:27
Just looking at the stats and achievements top 6 doesn't make sense, it should be higher. And he had, what only 3 below average lan performances throughout 2017? It's not that he wasn't consistent.
2018-01-13 17:27
Also, Fallen > KennyS > Device.

I'd put him over device considering he's igl with these stats, he's not too far behind individually
2018-01-13 17:36
only the stats count here on the site, of 9 championships was victorious in 8, cold and fer assumed that they only won because of the calls of their captain, responsible for the victory in 8 championships ... my doubt was between the 1st and the second place.
2018-01-13 17:36
HAHAHAHAHHA WHAT is this LOL this list is a fucking JOKE LMFAO

2018-01-13 17:47
device rating: 1.18 fallen rating: 1.13 device major rating: 1.24 fallen major rating: 1.04 device major maps: 22 fallen major maps: 15 (LOL less than dennis who doesn't even play csgo XD) device major champion: [X] fallen major champion: [ ]
2018-01-13 18:13
fallen titles: 8 mvp: 2 device titles: 2 mvp: 0 hltv is from denmark obvious they will scale device above fallen.... hltv lost my respect
2018-01-13 22:46
device major champion, much higher rating and more evp's you're from brazil obvious you will scale fallen above device.... brazil never had my respect
2018-01-13 23:10
Even the most retarded guy knows that fallen was a way better than him in 2017, a lot of pro players said that fallen deserves top 1, who are you to say that... u cant fight against facts hltv logic = not playing for two months > two bad months / 1 match owned = 1 rank above (overpass)... and device above kennys is another joke say hi to african teams, ups i dont know if exists a single one
2018-01-15 08:07
you don't deserve top 1 with 1.04 major rating LOL gtfo fanboy, you're clearly biased and your opinion is trash

Top 3 is Cold, Niko and Rain, only 4 and 5 left, I bet Fer is one of them. I thought Fallen would be way higher because of IGL impact in the year.

2018-01-13 18:16
4th or 5th best player in his team at half the events he played and hltv thinks he’s top 6 because his team won events lul. The only thing more farcical than Fallen being top 6 is dev1ce being top 5.
2018-01-13 18:18
fallen looks like you have fallen
2018-01-13 18:20
What the hell ? How is device in front of FalleN ? FalleN has been in so many finals while Astralis... Not that much ? Also device didn't attend the last tournaments of 2017. I don't get it.

Brazil hugoooo
The ONLY logical reason to put FalleN behind device in 2017 is the fact that he sucked hard on the beginning of the year. static.hltv.org/images/galleries/1693-me.. From summit onward, he was top 4 material.
2018-01-13 18:35
yeah but device completely outplayed him for a good period, same reason Cold > NiKo, cuz NiKo sucks vs Cold, And device is really good vs Fallen. Playstyles.

Do you ACTUALLY believe anyone cares about how player X did specifically vs player Y during the entire year, to make this top 20 ranking?! That's nonsense, it doesn't matter at all. What matters are the whole year performance, it doesn't matter how you did on your aim duels vs HUNDEN or f0rest for example lol
2018-01-13 19:25
If only stats are what you care about then Device is definitely better than fallen 1.18 > 1.13 on LAN.
2018-01-13 19:30

Brazil hugoooo
I never said I care only about stats. As I said on #570, FalleN playing poorly early on past year is the reason he's behind device, HLTV has a point there, I'm supporting them on that decision.

if there isnt fallen,coldzera cant be coldzera
2018-01-13 19:01
no way scuffed top20 fallen is #1
2018-01-13 19:08
Best IGL, one of the best rifling IGLs, but plays main awp, best awp in the world, still igl. Fallen isnt the best mechanically, but hes probably the MOST valuable player in counter strike history.

Man, I mean no disrespect for device, but Fallen >>>>> than him. How many times did Fallen outwit igls and players? How many times did Fallen and Coldzera win clutch biiiig rounds for SK? The numbers doesnt even reflect that. They win those key rounds when they will be reset and forced to eco, when their team is struggling in the match. That shows mental resilience. And Device, well, he chokes bro. Sorry.
