Video: HLTV.org's Top 20 players of 2019

Highlights of the players that made the Top 20 players of 2019 ranking, powered by Xtrfy and LOOT.BET, were compiled by Filip "filq" Szatkowski to create a 14-minute fragmovie.

The movie has been created for every Top 20 list in CS:GO, starting with 2013 when Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund was rewarded with the title of the best player amidst NiP's dominance.

HLTV.org presents the Top20 players of 2019 video

In 2019, that title went to the 19-year-old rookie Mathieu "ZywOo" Herbaut, who left behind Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev, Nicolai "device" Reedtz, and Jonathan "EliGE" Jablonowski despite their impressive years.

Click play on the video below, made by our moviemaker Filip "filq" Szatkowski, to relive the best actions from all 20 top players of the 2019:

sergej's clips were awfully edited, should've used more/better transitions. slightly boring editing, felt like rushed. but good sync on the music and frags

Device's clutch against NRG at the major still sends shivers down my back. That was something worthy of a graffiti.

A friendly reminder that device got robbed but luckily your opinion matters as much as the serb that made this
2020-01-27 22:24
So much agree to the list.
2020-01-27 22:27
jks, NAF, Brehze, woxic, EliGE, device, s1mple & ZywOo clips were insane. jks is a top5 material, he is so fucking good.

But we refuse to believe that the bank of justice is bankrupt. (My Lord) [laughter] (No, no) We refuse to believe that there are insufficient funds in the great vaults of opportunity of this nation. (Sure enough) And so we’ve come to cash this check (Yes), a check that will give us upon demand the riches of freedom (Yes) and the security of justice. (Yes Lord) [enthusiastic applause] We have also come to this hallowed spot (My Lord) to remind America of the fierce urgency of now. (Mhm) This is no time (My Lord) to engage in the luxury of cooling off or to take the tranquilizing drug of gradualism. [applause] (Yes, Speak on it!) Now is the time (Yes it is) to make real the promises of democracy. (My Lord) Now is the time to rise from the dark and desolate valley of segregation to the sunlit path of racial justice. Now is the time [applause] to lift our nation from the quicksands of racial injustice to the solid rock of brotherhood. Now is the time (Yes) [applause] (Now) to make justice a reality for all of God’s children.
