Top 20 players of 2019: Introduction

As 2020 has begun we are ready to announce the players who made the Top 20 players of 2019 list, set to be revealed one by one every day until January 20.

Starting January 1, every day at 20:00 we will count down from the 20th best player of the previous year up to the third-best player on January 18, before we close the list with the runner-up and winner announced at the same time on January 20. Each player will be revealed in an in-depth article describing their 2019 with focus on their individual performances, accompanied by an interview.

You can return to this article every day to check on the progress of the list, as we will update it here each time a player is revealed, all the way up to January 20 when the Top 20 comes to completion.

Top 20 players of 2019:

1. To be announced on January 20th
2. To be announced on January 20th
3. To be announced on January 18th
4. United States Jonathan "EliGE" Jablonowski
5. Denmark Emil "Magisk" Reif
6. Russia Denis "electronic" Sharipov
7. Canada Keith "NAF" Markovic
8. United States Vincent "Brehze" Cayonte
9. Canada Russel "Twistzz" Van Dulken
10. Estonia Robin "ropz" Kool
11. Bosnia and Herzegovina Nikola "NiKo" Kovac
12. Turkey Özgür "woxic" Eker
13. Finland Jere "sergej" Salo
14. Denmark Andreas "Xyp9x" Højsleth
15. Australia Justin "jks" Savage
16. Denmark Peter "dupreeh" Rasmussen
17. Sweden Freddy "KRIMZ" Johansson
18. Bulgaria Tsvetelin "CeRq" Dimitrov
19. Sweden Ludvig "Brollan" Brolin
20. United States Ethan "Ethan" Arnold

With a record-breaking 22 Big Events having taken place alongside an abundance of smaller tournaments, there were massive amounts of data available to analyze and filter 2019's actors to just the 20 best players.

This time, we will not be giving out any hints regarding the players featured, as many of you have already figured out some of the important aspects of the decision-making process and begun making accurate predictions of this year's ranking.

As always, the list is solely based on measurable contribution on the server, which we consistently tracked through statistics and often rewarded with accolades at the most notable events — Most Valuable Player awards and Exceptionally Valuable Player mentions, announced over the course of the year —, which also plays a key role.

The history of the Top 20 players dates all the way back to Counter-Strike 1.6 in 2010, with 2012 omitted because of a transitional period to CS:GO. You can see the previous lists below:

Top 20 players of 2018 (CS:GO)
Top 20 players of 2017 (CS:GO)
Top 20 players of 2016 (CS:GO)
Top 20 players of 2015 (CS:GO)
Top 20 players of 2014 (CS:GO)
Top 20 players of 2013 (CS:GO)
Top 20 players of 2011 (CS 1.6)
Top 20 players of 2010 (CS 1.6)

Two words stands out here: "EZ" about a professional player working 8 or 10 hours a day for years is slightly nonchalant, and "deserve" is an emotion which is NOT part of mathematical computation of statistical data. But yes: Zywoo is wonderful to watch!

"I think that device is my biggest opponent for the No.1 spot," ZywOo says. "Despite s1mple's impressive stats, device had another very impressive year with Astralis, and I think he deserves to be No.1. He is the most complete player I have ever seen and faced.
2020-01-01 17:00
I find it Funny how Big fans claim for some crumbs every time most irrelevant team ever
2020-01-01 17:22
would deserve as a player but he should get a good team first to show that
2020-01-01 19:10
There is no way Zywoo gets nr.1 Sure he has amazing stats, but there is no way that he suddenly jumps to nr.1 (and not even having been on the top 20 list before) because he was the best player for 3-4 months of 2019

There is nothing "flashy" or "the crowd goes wild" about Dev1ce. For several years in a row he is "up there" regarding MVP of the year, but in general he doesn't go for ballsy, bold or "looks great on tv" moves. His role is SOOOO integrated into systems, plans, on forehand thought out strategies, so he is more like "THE AWP'ER TO STUDY" as an upcoming newbee, since it is always "correct" or "right" according to Astralis' playbook. The other "superheroes" are the ones to "study" if you want to impress with your individual skills, i.e. employment in a professional organisation. I guess it's a matter of putting in the hours on the server. Some may have the talent, some may not. What Dev1ce is achieving on Astralis with THOSE teammates is a different story. He's been together with Dupreeh and Xyp9x for SIX YEARS !!! Mag1sk as the "newcomer" has "only" been with Dev1ce for two years ... I guess you know where I'm heading. Except for Liquid all other teams go for roster changes everytime they lose a map ... (maybe exaggerating a bit ...) I hope and think Mouz, EG and Fnatic will stay together for a while, but teams like NaVi, Vitality or FaZe are apparently not "stable". North, Avangar, 100 Thieves ... what will happen in 2020? Just trying to say, that "individual prizes" are up for graps. Congratulations, champagne, together with cute girls on photos on social media, applause, a statuette and flowers ... In the end: Winning MAJORS consistently (as well as millions) with the TEAM is a different breed of cat for Dev1ce!

s1mple is the hardest carry ever. dev1ce has similar skills but never had to carry his team like s1mple because all players are good in astralis. if you look at the skill level it has to be s1mple or zywoo to be no.1. both s1mple and zywoo have carried their teams thru hardest times to get to a level but many times they fail. just because guardian or apex don't perform well. it's good to give s1mple or zywoo no.1 position.

Absolutely fine with me! I of course luuuv to watch the "flashy stuff/fast guns in the West" kind of play by Zywoo, S1mple, Cerg, Woxic, KennyS and others, but when it comes to TEAM play there are only TWO teams who plays CS GO the "right" way. I guess Dev1ce acknowledges and accepts other players being "better" or run away with individual prizes as long as his TEAM sits on top of the world.

He will be there for sure. My guess is he will closer to 10th than to 20th too.
2020-01-01 16:52
well your guess is bad. he will be somewhere from 15th-19th. bookmark this comment

2020-01-02 06:42
Lol just reread because of your last comment, don't know why but I thought we were talking about Brehze not Sergej. So you are right sergej will most likely be 15-19 and more likely ib the bottom of that range.
