Top 20 players of 2019: EliGE (4)

Making his third consecutive appearance after placing 12th in 2017 and 15th in 2018, Jonathan "⁠EliGE⁠" Jablonowski reaches fourth place of the Top 20 players of 2019 ranking — powered by Xtrfy and LOOT.BET — on the back of an incredibly consistent year full of awards.

Top 20 players of 2019: Introduction

EliGE discovered esports at a very young age, starting out more casually in Counter-Strike 1.6 before moving to StarCraft 2 in 2010. Just 12 years old at the time, he would put his focus on the RTS game for the next few years, but he found his way back to the FPS franchise eventually and made a definitive switch to CS:GO in 2013 after trying out the new version in the beta period.

He quickly made his way up the North American ladder and got to play in his first notable teams alongside the likes of Peter "⁠ptr⁠" Gurney in Justus Pro and veterans Tyler "⁠Storm⁠" Wood and David "⁠Xp3⁠" Garrido in eLevate, with whom he made it to the semi-finals of his first international tournament, ClutchCon, in January 2015. Just a couple of months later, EliGE joined the organization that would become his home for the next five years, forming the long-standing duo with Nick "⁠nitr0⁠" Cannella after replacing Keith "⁠NAF⁠" Markovic in Liquid.

"nitr0 and I have always gotten along well throughout the entire time that we have been teammates. I think that there is good out-of-game chemistry and a lot of respect for each other inside the game, as well. We have both needed to adapt ourselves inside and outside the game a lot as we have gone on throughout the years and I think that is the biggest factor for why both of us have stayed so long."

Throughout 2015 he garnered more experience on the international scene and attended his first Major at DreamHack Open Cluj-Napoca, and in 2016, EliGE got his first taste of success when the team bolstered by Aleksandr "⁠s1mple⁠" Kostyliev placed in the semi-finals of MLG Columbus and the final of ESL One Cologne, the year's two Majors.

EliGE became a Major finalist at ESL One Cologne 2016

Although the successful stint didn't last long, with the Ukrainian star shortly leaving Liquid after interpersonal issues, it became clear that EliGE was ready to take the next step after showcasing impressive form at some of the biggest tournaments. In 2017 the first entry in the Top 20 players ranking came when he clinched the 12th spot after reaching great consistency and spearheading several successful runs for the North American side, who had brought in Russel "⁠Twistzz⁠" Van Dulken to form the three-man core of the current roster.

With two new stars in the Canadian duo of Twistzz and NAF, who returned to the organization in early 2018, Liquid started attacking high placings and EliGE finally won his first international tournament at cs_summit 2. Following an experienced addition of Epitacio "⁠TACO⁠" de Melo later in the year, the squad evolved into one of the best in the world on the back of consistent deep runs. Liquid couldn't get their hands on a big trophy due to a one-sided rivalry with the dominant Astralis, who stopped them at the last hurdle repeatedly, but it was an amazing year for the North American squad nonetheless. By the end, they were the clear No.2 team and the star trio all found themselves on the Top 20 list, with EliGE making a second consecutive appearance at No.15.

"For 2019, my main goal was to become the best team in the world. We were so close for the entirety of 2018 that taking that next step further was the only next step to take. The other goal that goes along with that is to lock down some tournament wins. It took until 2019 for us to finally get a big tournament win and, with that, we went on a really amazing win streak to propel us into the best team, so that combination of achieving both of those goals was perfect."

When 2019 began, the first item on the list was to adjust to a couple of changes. TACO and Wilton "⁠zews⁠" Prado had left for MIBR in a trade for Jake "⁠Stewie2K⁠" Yip, who had made his way on Liquid alongside a new coach in Eric "⁠adreN⁠" Hoag. The addition of another aggressive player in the former Cloud9 member meant a little more freedom for EliGE, as well as a secondary caller and a source of new ideas for the team:

"Stewie is a player that has really changed my game and the way I think about the game for the better and in an extreme way. I think he has a really good mind for the game and he brought along a ton of experience that he has acquired from his other teams. He not only helps with mid-round calling and coming up with new ideas, but he is a leader outside of the game as well.

"I think when Stewie joined this year I have still remained pretty aggressive in general, taking a lot of duels, but Stewie has been entrying more and it has helped to have another person do those really aggressive roles. The way that he is calling and entrying helps make me feel more free, so I have gotten into a lot more mid-late-round situations that I wasn't normally in compared to 2018."

Liquid had the opportunity to try out their new lineup early on at iBUYPOWER Masters in January and it seemed to do wonders. After a year full of runner-up finishes to Astralis in 2018, the North Americans played yet another final against them in Los Angeles and the new lineup finally won the first series versus the Danish powerhouse. Although EliGE had a hard time performing in the title decider itself, massive peaks against Luminosity and fnatic earned him the first of many EVPs.

"iBUYPOWER Masters was a really crazy tournament because of the technical problems, but I think it was a big help to us mentally that we showed we can beat Astralis. Astralis destroyed us for a majority of 2018 and for us to have a win at all even under the circumstances was a big morale booster for us as a team. It didn't immediately translate into success until a couple of months later, but it was a big step forward."

The new Liquid stepped into 2019 with a long-awaited triumph against Astralis at iBUYPOWER Masters

As EliGE says, the first-ever victory over the Danes didn't mean that Liquid would immediately claim the crown, as the new lineup was still yet to reach its peak for the next couple of months. Their next stop was at the IEM Katowice Major, where nitr0's men made it to the playoffs after close wins against AVANGAR, NiP, and Natus Vincere before becoming one of the victims of ENCE's phenomenal run.

Astralis then took their revenge in another grand final showdown between the two big rivals at BLAST Pro Series São Paulo — where EliGE recorded his career-best map with a 2.71 rating against NiP and picked up his second EVP mention — and in April another runner-up finish came at the following BLAST stop in Miami, with FaZe being on the other end of the title decider that time around.

It wasn't until May that Liquid showed progress by breaking their Big-Event title duck at IEM Sydney, taking advantage of the missing Astralis as they beat fnatic in a tough best-of-five grand final, which marked the beginning of a fantastic run of form for EliGE and the team as a whole.

"It felt amazing having that win against fnatic in the IEM Sydney final. Fnatic has always been a really solid team, so having our first big tournament win there in front of that crowd let us finally feel what it is like to win. Winning iBP was great because it was against Astralis specifically, but it didn't feel as good because of the problems. At IEM Sydney there were no factors like that so it was a good win against one of the best organizations in CS."

The IEM Sydney victory witnessed the beginning of EliGE's peak form

Although three weeks later they added a third runner-up finish to their tally at cs_summit 4 with Vitality dealing them the final blow, Liquid were immediately back to winning ways when they traveled to Dallas for DreamHack Masters. The $250,000 tournament proved to be a milestone for EliGE, whose standout play in the semi-final and grand final matchups against FURIA and ENCE and incredible consistency overall earned him his first-ever MVP. Big matches like that had been an area in which the American faltered in 2018 and — when it came to finals at least — at the beginning of 2019, but that didn't seem to be a problem anymore in either of the team's triumphs in Australia and Texas.

"I don't think there was anything specific that made me not play as well in bigger matches. It was just that all of those bigger matches in 2018 were against Astralis and when you are playing aggressively against a way better team then you are going to have a lot of rough matches. You aren't able to get the same types of duels and opportunities against a really good team like Astralis compared to other teams. As a team, we improved a lot, which gave me opportunities to play better individually, and also Stewie and Twistzz were doing a lot of heavy aggressive fights, which let me play off of them well."

Becoming a back-to-back MVP, he maintained the same form at ESL Pro League Season 9 Finals, where Liquid added another Astralis scalp in the quarter-finals before also taking down mousesports and G2 as they rallied to their third consecutive Big-Event title, with EliGE looking unstoppable.

"A big part of my improvement in 2019 was confidence in myself and trying to make sure I was solving problems more often. A lot of times when people are practicing and losing to a certain thing, they don't go the extra distance to think of how to fix that problem. It seems really obvious, but I don't think it is as actively worked on as it should be.

"zews and TACO talked about that while they were on the team, about how when TACO is having a problem with a certain play that is happening or a certain situation, then he will brainstorm or watch demos of other players to see how to beat that. That is one of the main things that I did in 2019 and will continue to do with note-taking and making sure that any situation that I am uncomfortable with gets written down and is fixed."

EliGE led Liquid to titles in Dallas and Montpellier with back-to-back MVPs

Securing three notches in the Intel Grand Slam race in as many tournaments, Liquid entered ESL One Cologne with an obvious goal ahead of them and they delivered yet again. MVP PK, Natus Vincere, and NRG all proved to be a challenge, but once the North American team reached the grand final, Vitality went down in convincing fashion as EliGE & co. completed the Intel Grand Slam in just 63 days. That time around, the highest award went to Mathieu "⁠ZywOo⁠" Herbaut, who had simply been too dominant to overcome, but EliGE was once again the leading man behind his team's success as the second-best player of one of the most stacked tournaments of the year.

"My best memory from 2019 is our easily our win in Cologne. Winning the grand slam and getting all of those wins in a row in one of the most respected arenas of Counter-Strike couldn't have been a better dream scenario."

EliGE took a back seat at BLAST Pro Series Los Angeles, where Liquid's other stars were in the spotlight as their rampage continued with a fifth consecutive big title, but he clinched his third MVP award as the first half of the year came to an end at IEM Chicago. It was possibly the best we had ever seen the 22-year-old play, as he put up a 1.41 rating in Illinois thanks to key performances from start to finish, with a 1.62 rating and 104 ADR in a dominant best-of-five triumph over ENCE capping off the spectacular run in the first part of the season.

"It was the most successful I have ever been in my career and it was amazing to feel so unbeatable. I really felt like we were going to beat any team that we played. Any peek that I took, I was going to win it. We had everyone from the team that was able to win a round all by themselves at any point. Having that type of confidence in your teammates makes you feel really free to do some crazy plays sometimes because you know they can pick up the slack if your play doesn't work out."

After a well-deserved break, Liquid went into the StarLadder Major as the clear No.1 team, but they looked far from their previous level. Although they started off on the right foot, the North Americans was on the verge of elimination after losing maps to NRG and AVANGAR and had to come back to squeeze through to the playoffs, taking down mousesports in a tough series to make it there by the skin of their teeth. By the time they reached the playoffs, it was clear that Liquid weren't in championship-winning form, and on top of that they met a red-hot Astralis in the quarter-finals and their campaign at the second Major ended.

"I think our dropoff was a combination of a couple things. We felt really off-page when we started practicing again, where everything wasn't clicking like it had. We were going over what we had before and making sure that stayed intact instead of everyone retaining and innovating new ideas. It is really important to make sure you keep the same foundation that you had before, but I think it took too long for that to come back so we essentially had the same playbook as we did from before the break, but during / after the break a lot of teams had studied us and were innovating on their own."

EliGE remained in superb shape with a team-leading 1.23 rating in Germany to secure his eighth consecutive award as one of the Major's EVPs, but that streak came to an end at ESL One New York. Liquid were eliminated in the semi-finals at the hands of Astralis once again, with the 22-year-old's unremarkable series against G2 in the group stage preventing him from receiving another accolade.

The team had to travel from New York directly to Malmö and suffered their first group-stage exit of the year at the DreamHack Masters tournament with losses to OpTic and to Grayhound, after the Australian side came back from a 3-12 deficit on Mirage, on which the North American side had amassed 15-map winning streak. A second consecutive early elimination came a month later at BLAST Pro Series Copenhagen despite great efforts from EliGE, who was in as good of a shape as ever, returning to the list of awardees with a rare out-of-playoffs EVP mention.

"The worst memory would definitely be DreamHack Masters Malmö because I think that was the climax of all of the travel catching up to us as a team and especially me. Even during our summer run we were going to a lot of tournaments in a row and playing well at them, but it was still really hard on me. There wasn't anything crazy different about going from one tournament to another one directly after, but for some reason that travel made me feel physically and mentally drained."

Liquid endured a couple of tough blows at DreamHack Masters Malmö and BLAST Copenhagen

It wasn't until late November that Liquid contended for titles again, but by that time Astralis had been in full swing as the best team in the world and ended up standing in the North American team's path on every occasion. The Danish giants beat nitr0's team to titles at ECS Season 8 Finals and at BLAST Pro Series Global Finals, and also had a hand in their elimination at the ESL Pro League Season 10 Finals, although in Odense, fnatic were the opponent to deal Liquid the final blow in the quarter-finals. Meanwhile, EliGE maintained his spot at the forefront of the team, with four consecutive EVPs rounding out his best year so far.

Why was EliGE the 4th best player of 2019?

With amazing consistency, a very high floor, and numerous exceptional performances throughout 2019, EliGE was part of the "Big four" and was at times in contention for the title of the world's best player.

"Whenever I have any type of problem on a map or I am feeling uncomfortable, I make sure that I try to fix that by either talking to my team or watching a demo of a player that plays my spot really well. Making sure the back-end of my game is really high gives a lot of room for my best to become better because even when I am having an off day, that off-day is still really good and not going to jeopardize the game. I have a lot of confidence during those types of days as well because I know that it only takes one round or one play to get myself back into the game and then I can be firing on all cylinders."

He finished the year as the third-best fragger (0.78 kills per round) and was tied for first place in damage (86.1 ADR), all the while recording the sixth-most opening kills (0.13 per round) and fourth-most multi-kills (20.2% of his rounds). That made him one of the most impactful players of 2019 (1.31 impact rating, third highest) and one of the highest rated both overall (1.21, fifth highest) and in Big-Event playoffs (1.18, fifth highest).

EliGE was the most-awarded player of 2019 with a total of 14 accolades from 18 events

The aforementioned consistency and a high floor level show through the fact that he put up at least a 1.05 rating at every notable event he attended and was deemed at least a Valuable Player at all 18 of them.

EliGE's biggest peaks came in the May-July run, during which he picked up three Big-Event MVP medals — at DreamHack Masters Dallas, ESL Pro League Season 9 Finals, and IEM Chicago — and earned top-of-the-list EVPs at IEM Sydney and ESL One Cologne. Along with numerous other exceptional performances outside of that period, that made him the most-awarded player of 2019 with a total of three MVP and 11 EVP awards.

Bold prediction

Previously, EliGE correctly picked his teammate Twistzz in 2017 and in 2018 he put the spotlight on the young Owen "⁠oBo⁠" Schlatter. This time, his prediction goes to the latter's new teammate and in-game leader in Complexity, Benjamin "⁠blameF⁠" Bremer:

Denmark Benjamin "⁠blameF⁠" Bremer

"I think blameF is definitely going to be a top player next year. When he joined Complexity I could immediately tell the impact he has had on the team. I've watched him a bit now already and you could really see how talented and innovative he is."

2020-01-17 20:12
+1 Elige deserved top 3 as Navi didn't achieve anything in 2019.
2020-01-17 20:12
Ranking is for players not teams. Is it???
2020-01-17 20:17
stats don't mean that much when your team gets eliminated quite early against a team that's not top3
2020-01-17 20:32
Not true
2020-01-17 20:34
it is true, if you are getting knocked out in qualifiers you aren't facing top tier teams
2020-01-17 20:43
+1. Going out earlier most often means facing weaker opponents on average
2020-01-17 23:11
75 maps vs 20 maps vs elite top 5 teams 24 vs 3 against Astralis
2020-01-18 01:44
But are we sure about these stats ? Because the HLTV filters have a BIG known flaw = you also need to be in top X at the moment of the match against a top X team for these stats to be taken into account.. I know NaVi played less this year but 20 maps against top 5 seems really low

What the fuck... s1mple should be #4, Na'Vi skipped so many events while this guy was wrecking everyone, everytime. Also : "EliGE was the most-awarded player of 2019 with a total of 14 accolades from 18 events". ???!! And 4th... lmao
2020-01-17 20:14
S1mple is 2nd best rated player in tier1. Calm your tits.
2020-01-17 20:18
In 9 total events. 3 of which were blasts
2020-01-18 01:14
Numbers never lie dude. You can do nothing about it. Some idiots were arguing with me when I said that S1mple will be in top2-3. Now where are all of them? As I always said, HLTV is not about your "personal feelings", it's about numbers and logic.
2020-01-18 01:15
Maps arent part of logic?
2020-01-18 01:19
The difference was not that huge to count it.
2020-01-18 01:19
47%
2020-01-18 01:23
7 less events 55 less maps vs top 5 teams. Much harder to maintain higher stats when you're playing elite teams way more often.
2020-01-18 01:25
2020-01-18 01:36
The 2 most hilarious parts of this comparison are if you look at Elige's rating vs Navi compared to s1mple's vs Liquid, and then s1mple's vs Vitality to Elige's vs Vitality.
2020-01-19 15:34
You're just a s1mple fanboy who got happy they HEAVILY overrated rating and ignored other important factors. GG.

hltv.org/stats/players/compare/7998/s1mp.. well-deserved, cuz S1mple was by fact much better in 2019.
2020-01-17 20:42
stats don't mean that much when your team gets eliminated quite early against a team that's not top3
2020-01-17 23:18
It's not a team nomination, it's about who was better player in 2019's tier1 level. And S1mple was by fact better one. S1mple and ZywOo were the only 2 S-class players in 2019, others were much worse.
2020-01-18 00:22
That's why device will be 2nd
2020-01-18 01:12
That's why ZywOo is top1, S1mple is top2 and device is top3.
2020-01-18 01:13
You're delusional
2020-01-18 01:20
Nice argument
2020-01-18 01:20
You're completely ignoring maps and awards. Impossible to argue with someone who ignores facts.
2020-01-18 01:22
Do you wanna talk about MVPs which are more than half of a team achievement? No, thanks.
2020-01-18 01:25
Sure they are that's why zywoo won 2 when his team didnt win the tournament And 1 when he had no teammates over 1.0 rating Like I said, delusional. And you can get EVPs while only making playoffs.
2020-01-18 01:30
I don't see any reason to argue with you, since you ignore all facts and talk about MVPs which are almost useless at this case since MVPs are mostly team achievement. It is irrelevant when you wanna choose the best player of the year. That is why ZywOo will be top1 and S1mple top2. This works ONLY like that. As I said before, HLTV experts are not kids from comments, they know exactly how to analyze players' performance. I'm happy that there are no such persons like you in their talks.
2020-01-18 01:50
You're completley ignoring the fact that Elige had to play vs top teams way more often because you're a s1mple fangirl. Stay that way you'll never change.
2020-01-18 01:52
As I said before, this "way more" is not that more as you describing it.
2020-01-18 01:53
55 more maps vs top 5 teams 21 more maps vs Astralis 49 more maps vs top 10 47 more big event maps. These are huge margains
2020-01-18 06:59
Not as big of a joke as your " device should be # 1 over Zywoo " though
2020-01-17 23:21

S1mple and Electronic are 2nd and 3rd highest rated(2.0 rating) players of 2019 with such a poorly performing team. Do you think they wouldnt become two the best players in the world if they would lose less rounds and obviously die less too(which affects 2.0 rating).

Yeah, would expect S1mple here. Elige was a monster, never playing badly and being awarded a lot.

2020-01-17 20:49
Elige played 223 maps and actually won tournaments this year lol But okayy about your logic and stats
2020-01-17 23:23
This nomination is not about teams, it's about players and their individual performances. And S1mple was by fact better. And his amount of maps was not so small compared to ELIGE. You're exaggerating it too much I think.
2020-01-18 00:21
Vs way less elite teams way less often. Much easier to maintain stats when you dont play top teams.
2020-01-18 01:34
Yeah sure, he didn't play vs top teams. lmao
2020-01-18 01:47
hltv.org/stats/players/8738/EliGE?startD.. Elige player 117 maps vs top 10 hltv.org/stats/players/7998/s1mple?start.. S1mple played 68 vs top 10 70% more maps lol

He was just 4th in 2019 at max dude. It's individual statistics. MVPs are mostly team achievements, since you cannot win MVP if your team is not #1 or #2. Even if you're were beasting whole tournament like no one other and took 3rd place as a team.

s1mple is still a beast but I would have rated Elige above him for this year. This kinda confirms he will be third, no way he beats Devve or ZywOo

ZywOo >= S1mple >>>>>>>>>> device

s1mple good stats but elige had more tournaments, matches, trophies (real big trophies) and consistency. I agree
2020-01-18 01:15
ropz should've been here wtf
2020-01-18 00:58
2020-01-18 01:07
Shoulda been 3rd
2020-01-18 01:09
s0mple deserved this place
2020-01-18 01:12
It's nonsense that Simple placed ahead of Elige. You all will notice the next three players are AWP heavy players. I doubt Elige has 10 AWP kills on the year. Which means with these numbers we are talking about one of the best seasons a rifler has ever had in the history of this game. Elige is the best pure rifle playing right now and it's not even close. Sick on CT and T side as well. What more can you ask from an entry pack rifler. He's basically Dupreeh 2.0 but with maybe a higher ceiling and definitely a higher floor. That's just gross. I hope he's a long term type of guy and he can hold onto this form a year or two. It's hard to be the best at your craft at this level in this game but right now he's the best rifler playing. If he stays that way then Liquid will continue to be near impossible to beat aside from by the boys in Astralis.

Some additional stats to think about in the #471 posts. 2019 was way more about Elige than S1mple.

He has one awp kill LUL
2020-01-19 07:28
It's funny because I'm pretty sure I remember that kill being on Vertigo. It was like a 3v2 and Elige picked a guy to end the rond.
2020-01-19 17:07
Deserved, congrats to him! Seems like a very fair placement considering stats and overall impact
2020-01-18 01:20
BARVINOK and Ypp1 s1mple fangirls who are happy he was overrated. Delusional rankings this year for sure.
2020-01-18 01:37
hltv.org/stats?startDate=2019-01-01&endD.. Just gonna leave this here. Then feel free to consider the map count and awards as well.
2020-01-18 01:43
Wow.
2020-01-18 01:46
Not a big difference between all these top players. Why are you pretending like you invented something "cool"?
2020-01-18 01:52
Because they ignored that elige had to play vs top teams way more often. You're right it's not a big difference. That's why map count awards and success (minorly) should break the ties. Thanks for proving your own argument wrong. If Magisk > Electronic than why not Elige > S1mple
2020-01-18 01:55
Again and again, you're trying to say about "way more often maps". Yes, EliGE played more maps against top10, but not WAY more.
2020-01-18 01:55
49 more 4.5 more per month cause of player break
2020-01-18 02:04
117 - 68 = 49 (not 55) Damn, your baits are getting worse with every post. I have to report you, sorry.
2020-01-18 02:02
Talking bout top 10 lmao ur delusional 55 more vs top 5
2020-01-18 02:04
invented something cool? ur a moron...hes showing that elige has basically the same rating as simple but he had to keep it up throughout almost twice as many maps...it makes a big difference. Elige deserved top 3 for sure
2020-01-18 02:43
Ty +1
2020-01-18 06:55
But -50 maps comperd to the other dudes.. 50 is alot mens.
2020-01-18 09:59
Exactly?
2020-01-18 12:02
thats what nimmal was saying and i was just repeating it bc that other guy is a moron
2020-01-18 23:10
I love s1mple but honestly think EliGE deserved top 3
2020-01-18 01:51
2019 year was a year of ZywOo vs S1mple rivalry. There are no other players who deserved to be in top2. Even Device with his amazing team achievements is far lower than these 2. I'm not even talking about EliGe who was even worse than Device. :)
2020-01-18 01:54
More delusional with every comment.
2020-01-18 01:55
Try to calm down dude. You're replying to every post of mine. I know that you hate S1mple and truth hurts, but this guy (S1mple) deserved top2 spot in 2019 and everyone including you know that.
2020-01-18 01:56
That's why the entire thread is saying "undeserved" "Should have been #3" Guy right below me says elige should be 2. You're a fangirl accept it
2020-01-18 01:57
2-3 guys = entire thread. LMAO There are more your posts with some baits in this thread than these "disagreed" guys.
2020-01-18 01:58
Never said that was the whole thread lol. Funny how you're off topic now that I proved you're statistical arguments wrong.
2020-01-18 01:59
Elige has a much higher "bottom level" than the rest of Liquid. Even on their worst days he rarely goes missing. In that respect I think he has done better than Dev1ce and S1mple.
2020-01-18 01:54
Nah when did device ever have off days?? This was the first year he never choked. He carried in playoffs while his team slumped Dupreeh and gla1ve notably
2020-01-18 01:56
#2 2018 #5 2017 #3 2016 #3 2015 #20 2014.... will he ever get what he deserve?
2020-01-18 02:45
EliGE got robbed, it's like finding that a player on Uganda has better stats than Messi and put him as the best on the world. S1mple is the most skilled guy on the scene but he doesn't deserve Top 3 this year.

this ranking... is it public how they rank these? I can't see the logic behind some positions, how can Naf be #7 (rating 1.18, 2MVP, 10EVP, TEAM: 7x1st, 5x2nd 1x3rd) and electonic #6 (rating 1.22, 3EVP, team: 1x1st, 5x3rd). rating clearly doesn't win you titles but here it's like gold. EDIT: now waiting who will top EliGE.
2020-01-18 15:02
Elige king win for Liquid! No Elige no Liquid) Bravo top 4!
2020-01-18 15:57
He is A best! He deserved it to be in the top 5 Let's go Liquid!!
