Top 20 players of 2020: ZywOo (1)

Unparalleled impact in the biggest matches and stunning consistency see Mathieu "⁠ZywOo⁠" Herbaut take the top spot in our ranking of the top 20 players of 2020, powered by GG.BET and Xtrfy, in a neck-and-neck race for the crown.

Top 20 players of 2020: Introduction

ZywOo has enjoyed a meteoric rise to prominence in the last two years, but his name began being tossed around as a potential star as early as 2017, when he became a regular presence in the French sub-top, first with E-Corp and then with WySix. However, his first matches on record on HLTV.org actually date back to August 2016, when he played for a mix team called nevermind in the open qualifiers for ECS Season 2’s Development League alongside current G2 in-game leader, Nemanja "⁠nexa⁠" Isaković.

ZywOo won plenty of early admirers, including his current teammate Richard "⁠shox⁠" Papillon, who said in April 2017 that he liked the rising star "very, very much" and that he saw in the youngster "some of my moves". Only one month later, he garnered many new followers after being the first player featured in our "One for the future" article series, which covers some of the game’s hottest prospects. That summer, he was invited to play in FPL, initially on trial, which offered him the chance to glean plenty from pick-up games against some of the best players in Europe while he didn’t make the jump to professional Counter-Strike.

It was not for a lack of suitors that ZywOo didn’t become a professional player that year. Current G2 coach Damien "⁠maLeK⁠" Marcel already had the 16-year-old on his shortlist of candidates for Envy’s academy team, but the youngster’s mother did not let him fully commit to the game until he finished high school. ZywOo continued his development in the sub-top, helping aAa, who had recruited his WySix team to win the ESL National Championship Summer 2018, where he averaged a stunning 1.70 rating in the series against MAXISAUCISSE and LDLC.

The long-awaited transition to pro finally happened in October 2018, when ZywOo was unveiled by Vitality, one of the biggest esports organisations in France, alongside four veterans, three of them Major champions. The weight of expectations did not faze the then-18-year-old, who powered Vitality to victory at his first international LAN, DreamHack Open Atlanta 2018, where he put up a 1.40 rating as the team beat a field that included Complexity, Ghost and Luminosity.

ZywOo won five MVP medals in 2019

It would have been difficult to imagine a better debut year than the one that ZywOo had in 2019. After a somewhat slow start, the French prodigy picked up the pace and began to showcase his talent at the biggest events. He scooped five MVP medals and was a beacon of consistency in Vitality’s up-and-down year, topping the charts for rating (1.30), including big-event playoff rating (1.33), Impact (1.40), ADR (86.1) and KDD (+955). He became the youngest player to be ranked first in an HLTV Top 20 - also matching Marcelo "⁠coldzera⁠" David’s feat of being named the best player in the world in his first full year as a professional -, establishing a rivalry with Aleksandr "⁠s1mple⁠" Kostyliev that would continue into 2020.

Just like in 2019, Vitality began the year on a shaky note as they finished third in their group in the BLAST Premier Spring Series, losing to Complexity and Natus Vincere after beating the CIS giants in their first match in London, with ZywOo being the only player in the team with an above-average rating from this stage of the tournament (1.17).

Vitality looked a bit uninspired in London and Katowice

Vitality continued to be a one-man show in the following tournament, IEM Katowice, where they went out 9th-12th following defeats to FaZe and Astralis. ZywOo put up strong numbers across the board (1.24 rating, 24% higher than the team’s average, 1.38 rating and 86.8 ADR), but the early elimination saw him leave the Polish city with only a Valuable Player selection.

"I don’t know why we looked rusty. We struggled early in the season, and I wasn’t at my best individually. It took us a little while to get back to our level, and I think we were still a little exhausted from 2019, which was a pretty crazy year in terms of travel.

"The beginning of the year, when I struggled individually and we struggled as a team, was my worst memory."

Rubbing salt into the open wound was the surprising departure of in-game leader Alex "⁠ALEX⁠" McMeekin due to the team’s relentless travel schedule. Dan "⁠apEX⁠" Madesclaire took the baton from the British tactician, with Vitality recruiting 17-year-old Kévin "⁠misutaaa⁠" Rabier, an exciting prospect but with very little competitive experience. ZywOo had a somewhat quiet tournament in ESL Pro League Season 11, in which he averaged some year-low numbers (1.17 rating, 1.18 Impact and 0.74 KPR) as Vitality finished 7th-9th after losing to OG in the Play-In stage.

"It wasn't easy news to hear because we had been through a very good period with ALEX in 2019. He was our leader and it was not easy to replace him.In the beginning, it was quite complicated because a lot of things had to change, Dan (apEX) had to get used to his new role and misutaaa was still quite inexperienced at this level.

"However, Dan was already a leader for the team and it was a pretty natural transition for him in the end with the experience that he has. He's a hard worker and does an incredible job for the whole team!"

For the rest of the year, ZywOo was an almost ever-present figure on the lists of top performers from tournaments. He was second to Nicolai "⁠device⁠" Reedtz in the race for the MVP of ESL One: Road to Rio - despite Vitality finishing only fourth -, making the tournament's stats leaderboards in nine categories, including rating (1.24), ADR (83.2) and KPR (0.80). In DreamHack Masters Spring, he put up a tournament-high 1.33 rating, but his team could not go beyond the second round of the lower bracket after losing to NIP following an uncharacteristically off-colour performance from ZywOo on the final map (0.67 rating, his second-lowest of 2020).

ZywOo was the MVP in three consecutive events between June and August

As we entered the summer season, Vitality became more comfortable with their new system and began making deep runs in tournaments, even though titles still eluded them. ZywOo was the MVP in the team's runner-up finishes in the BLAST Spring Europe Finals, cs_summit 6 and ESL One Cologne, putting up some impressive numbers during this stretch of tournaments (1.34 rating, 1.47 Impact, 88.6 ADR, 86.0% of maps with 1.00+ ratings, and 0.83 KPR). He delivered very strong performances in the grand finals of BLAST Premier (series-high 1.56 against Complexity) and cs_summit (1.20 against BIG), and was also the best performer in the ESL One Cologne title decider (1.11 against Heroic.

"The second places were quite frustrating because we were really strong, but we were still missing something, something we needed to win a final. It was still a very good period because we were very consistent and efficient.

"Online form? As I’ve been doing since the start of my career, I don't ask myself too many questions like that. I play the game, I do what I'm asked to do, and I give my best for the team."

Vitality were unable to keep up that form as they crashed out of ESL Pro League Season 12 in the group stage with a 3-4 record. ZywOo had just two maps in the red in 17 and still put up some respectable numbers (1.20 rating and 1.27 Impact) despite the team's early exit. This was the last time in 2020 in which he was not among the standout performers of a tournament.

ZywOo returned to his best form in IEM New York, putting up some of his best numbers of the year in Vitality's semi-final run. He was second to Nikola "⁠NiKo⁠" Kovač in the race for the MVP medal with a 1.34 rating (26% higher than the team's average), 93.8 ADR, 1.54 Impact and 0.88 KPR, topping the scoreboard in all three matches, including the 0-2 defeat to eventual winners FaZe, in which he was the only Vitality player with an above-average rating (1.19).

ZywOo's fourth MVP of the year came from DreamHack Open Fall, in which Vitality fell at the last hurdle in a five-map affair against Heroic after winning their previous five matches of the tournament. The 20-year-old, who raised eyebrows with back-to-back 2.00+ rated maps against fnatic, ranked first for rating (1.33), ADR (88.9), damage difference per round (+19.0) and opening kills per round (0.16).

Vitality finally broke their duck in IEM Beijing-Haidian Europe, the first of a series of Elite events that marked the end of the season. This was the first big tournament in which the French team showed the flexibility of their six-man roster after adding Nabil "⁠Nivera⁠" Benrlitom, though it was far from an easy ride: they had to survive a group elimination series against MAD Lions and came back from a two-map deficit to beat Natus Vincere in the final.

ZywOo was below par for his usual standards in the group stage (1.26 rating), but his form improved once the tournament reached the playoffs, in which he put up 1.30+ ratings on all maps that the team won en route to the title. He was inside the top five in 12 stats leaderboards, most notably rating (1.31), deaths per round (0.55), KAST (78.8%) and opening kills per round (0.15), adding another MVP medal to his collection.

"It was an incredible feeling! On top of that, it was a hard-fought match in which we were on the brink of defeat at one point. But we were able to get back in the game and finally win a final! It's hard to describe the relief of winning this title. It was a reward for our consistency throughout the year.

"Pistol ace against NAVI? I played the round by instinct. It all happened very quickly, and with the tension of the situation, of being in a bootcamp,to get back in the game that way, it was incredible. With all the emotion, I threw my headset, which is something very rare for me.

"Nivera’s addition is a big plus for us because it brings us fresh blood and more strategic opportunities, Moreover, he is also an AWPer, which allows me to use rifles on certain maps, which I really appreciate. I was pretty surprised [with his addition] at first, but I thought it was cool. Nivera is a young player, like misutaaa and me, and we all know his potential. I was a little bit curious about how it was going to work out, but our coach explained the goals and the transition well, and in the end it was a success.

"The end of the season with Vitality, the journey we made with the whole team, winning several titles… For me that was the best memory of this year."

Vitality then made it two tournament victories in a row as they came out on top of the BLAST Fall Finals in a much more convincing fashion than in the IEM competition. They dropped just two maps over the course of the event, losing just nine rounds per map on average as they looked a class above mousesports, BIG and Astralis. ZywOo put up some respectable numbers (1.36 rating, 1.40 impact and 91.0 ADR) to power his team to the title and scoop his sixth MVP medal of the year.

Vitality won back-to-back tournaments, but then fell short in their final event of the year

With the year about to come to an end, the race for the title of the best team of 2020 was wide open. Vitality looked to be the clear favourites heading into the IEM Global Challenge, but they were unable to make it out of the group stage after losing to BIG and the eventual champions, Astralis. ZywOo had to settle for a place among the EVPs despite posting some year-high stats, including a 1.40 rating, a 93.5 ADR and a 79.2% KAST.

"It was a really long year with a lot of tournaments. Unfortunately, we might have lacked a bit of gas in the tank to end it on a high note. We lost 2-1 to a very, very good Astralis after we had defeated them in the final of BLAST Premier. I believe it’s not easy to play multiple important matches against the same teams in such a short period of time, especially against Astralis.

"Not being the No.1 team of 2020? That’s something that I’m not really interested in. It’s a pity, but what matters is that we had a great year and we won titles! There was no Major in 2020 and that’s my only regret. I hope we can win a Major in 2021."

Why was ZywOo the best player of 2020?

ZywOo edged out s1mple in one of the closest races for the No.1 spot in the history of the HLTV Top 20 thanks to being a more impactful player in the most competitive tournaments and in the biggest matches.

He ranked second for rating (1.29), damage per round (85.8) and kills per round (0.81), while his 74.8% KAST was the third-highest overall. He was slightly ahead of the pack in terms of Impact rating (1.38), in part because of his ability to get multi-kills (21.3% of his rounds, the second-best), and also due to the high number of opening kills (0.15 per round, fourth-highest) and clutches (88 1vsX situations won, the highest).

"It's simply amazing [to be the No.1 player two years in a row]. I have no words. It would not have been possible without my team and my teammates. This is also a reward for all of us.

"s1mple had another great year, he's an incredible player. I think he could have been the No.1, it would have been just as deserved. I also think device had a great season with Astralis, and I'm happy to see him on the podium."

All this resulted in six MVP medals and four EVP awards, an unmatched feat, especially considering that they all came from Elite and Big events. He also displayed incredible consistency all year long: his lowest tournament rating was 1.17 and he had the highest percentage of maps with both 1.00+ ratings (85.4%) and 1.30+ ratings (49.8%).

If we only consider the eight Elite events, ZywOo's somewhat slower start to the year at IEM Katowice and in ESL Pro League Season 11 meant that he had "just" the second-highest rating (1.27) in tournaments of this stature. But when we also include the next four most competitive events (the three Regional Major Ranking tournaments and the BLAST Spring Europe Finals), he adds four very strong performances. This, combined with his superb play in big matches - with no big series in which he looked off-colour (1.10+ ratings in every playoff series or series in the top half of a tournament) and a 1.29 rating in Big Event playoffs, the highest overall - sees him come out ahead, albeit by a very narrow margin.

"My goal for 2021 is to carry the momentum that we had at the end of 2020 with the team, meaning to win as many tournaments as possible and always in such a good mood. I hope that we will be able to play a Major and play in LAN. I miss that very much."

Bold prediction

Not much in the way of a hot take, but ZywOo predicts a bright future for his teammate Nivera, who has averaged a 1.18 rating since joining Vitality as part of the roster’s expansion.

Belgium Nabil "⁠Nivera⁠" Benrlitom

"I think Nabil has everything to become a great player. He’s just joined us, but he’s learning very quickly. He’s already very strong and he’s getting stronger quickly. He's a very versatile and complete player who can play with the AWP and with rifles, and who can take almost any position. I think he has a chance to be in the top 20 in 2021!"

Zywoo had a better year because his team is more solid, Navi is one of my fav EU teams but they have a lot to improve, their team play should be better (as they're a tier 1 team) s1mple had a better individual game for sure, but couldn't accomplish much this year... they're both highly skilled but Zywoo was more consistent, with or without MVPS... both deserved top 1 tbh....

If mvp’s aren’t relevant then the whole top 20 is flawed which you don’t seem to claim. You just claim s1 is better than zywoo which could be true. At the end of the day its just a top 20 and you either respect it totally or you don’t

>ZywOo edged out s1mple in one of the closest races for the No.1 spot in the history of the HLTV Top 20 thanks to being a more impactful player in the most competitive tournaments and in the biggest matches. He ranked second for rating (1.29), damage per round (85.8) and kills per round (0.81), while his 74.8% KAST was the third-highest overall. He was slightly ahead of the pack in terms of Impact rating (1.38), in part because of his ability to get multi-kills (21.3% of his rounds, the second-best), and also due to the high number of opening kills (0.15 per round, fourth-highest) and clutches (88 1vsX situations won, the highest). Hahaha lol.. so basically s0mple baiter so he didn't get #1, what's wrong with that. Keep looking at stats that s0mple pads his way to by baiting. "Better stats" lol. Low impact baiter

Sure if he tops the top1 for 5 years in a row, he could not need major title. But so far, I, like him, believe device achievements put him the current GOAT.

yah true device is the undisputed GOAT for sure
2021-01-20 20:39
Hes already top5 in goat convo,if he gets more tier1 wins and top1 2021 there will be a solid argument for goat status
2021-01-21 04:48

I wouldn't say top 5. Before him there is coldzera, with the same amount of top1 but 2 major title too; the 4 core of Astralis with 4 major title, perhaps even all players with 3 major title, such as magisk, pronax, etc..

I don't know are they supporting Na'Vi games, wins and losses or just s1mple's stats and KD ? That's really alarming, it's not NATUS:VINCERE in their mind, it's S1MPLE:STATCERE. I've been a bit tilted about that game, still expecting things later in the tournament because I believe they'll beat complexity but they're casually laughing off a 0-2 just for a flickshot you see sometimes on faceit. Of course, it was impressive and spectacular because it was a wallshot on top of the flick across the scope and I know he trains them a lot in aimbotz ( just like I did in the past) but to them getting a lot of awp kills against ecos going outside multiple rounds with no smokes or failed smokes is enough for them to be satisfied. I don't know man.

Honestly i didn't expect zywoo to get an EVP in IEM GC with the group stage exit from vitality. Also an EVP in DH Masters spring with Vitality 7-8th place. Two evp's in elite events puts a massive swing in the prediction. Anyway, congrats to zywoo, regardless of HLTV stats. I think he is better than s1mple in their own enviroments because he is a better clutcher.

Facts "He ranked second for rating (1.29), damage per round (85.8) and kills per round (0.81), while his 74.8% KAST was the third-highest overall. He was slightly ahead of the pack in terms of Impact rating (1.38), in part because of his ability to get multi-kills (21.3% of his rounds, the second-best), and also due to the high number of opening kills (0.15 per round, fourth-highest) and clutches (88 1vsX situations won, the highest)." In only 1 Stat nr1. "f we only consider the eight Elite events, ZywOo's somewhat slower start to the year at IEM Katowice and in ESL Pro League Season 11 meant that he had "just" the second-highest rating (1.27) in tournaments of this stature. But when we also include the next four most competitive events (the three Regional Major Ranking tournaments and the BLAST Spring Europe Finals), he adds four very strong performances. This, combined with his superb play in big matches - with no big series in which he looked off-colour (1.10+ ratings in every playoff series or series in the top half of a tournament) and a 1.29 rating in Big Event playoffs, the highest overall - sees him come out ahead, albeit by a very narrow margin." They count RMR events where S1mple couldn't attend in a region that matters for ranking. WoW that is nice rigged shit. In nothing nr1 and then count events only< for zywho advantage

I am not incorrect. S1mple won by all stats He is the best individual player. I give a shit about rigged hltv. HLTV itself said the only player that is better than S1mple 2020 is S1mple 2018.

2021-01-21 02:31
Exactly the same situation as Cold and Niko in 2017. Zywoo is Cold, and Simple is Niko. Actually to the pure individual performance level of 2017, Niko is slightly better than Cold, but Cold has the better team performance and rating. Only when No 1 and No 2 have big clear gap level, then No 1 would be given to the one who even don’t have a very good team grade, just like Simple in 2018. Otherwise, when No1 and No2 ‘s candidate are very close ,the grade of whole team is definitely the biggest concern and factor to weigh about~

Except zywoo has like 7 MVPs which shows his individual dominance in the server. Plus him and coldzera arent even playing the same roles. Coldzera is a known baiter. He is also the 2nd awper in the team. Zywoo is the main awper and doesnt get baited as often as cold. He doesnt have a taco who baits for him 24/7. And zywoo's individual's brilliance can match that of Niko's and much better than cold's.

Who cares about MVPs? That doesn't show how good they were on the server. That's like saying someone with multiple championships in a sport who is a bench player is better than an amazing starting player who hasn't won as many, Such a stupid comparison.

Your comparison is even worse cuz neither players are bench warmers. This are 2 guys that carried both teams all year long, but one actually got them to win trophies, the other fell short of victory. 0.01 kd rating for s1mple, 0.01 impact rating for zywoo. Only the team victories seperated them as they are pretty much on the same individual level.

I'm not a s1mple or a ZywOo fan, but just compare 2 of this 1v1 moments in those videos: 1. youtu.be/xvkh9OJtAA8 2. youtu.be/a7Fo3ci_OGA In a 1st video on the second ACE (at the end of a video) ZywOo played 1v1 perfectly. On the 2nd video when s1mple left 1v1 - he played like amateur, no offense here. I know there were 2 different events - ZywOo did this moments in the online and s1mple on the lan, but still. Also - ZywOo had 6 hp at the moment when he left 1v1 with a planted bomb and in the same situation s1mple had 100 hp.

Exactly the same situation as Cold and Niko in 2017. Zywoo is Cold, and Simple is Niko. Actually to the pure individual performance level of 2017, Niko is slightly better than Cold, but Cold has the better team performance and rating. Only when No 1 and No 2 have big clear gap level, then No 1 would be given to the one who even don’t have a very good team grade, just like Simple in 2018. Otherwise, when No1 and No2 ‘s candidate are very close ,the grade of whole team is definitely the biggest concern and factor to weigh about... (After all, CS GO IS A TEAM GAME.) The real No1 of each year should be (from pure individual level): 13 GTR 14 Flusha (concern of exe. that became No.2 that year) 15 Olaf 16 Coldzera 17 Niko 18 Simple 19 Zywoo 20 Simple (only slightly better than Zywoo)

What could you expect from this rofl top?
2021-01-21 02:19
So obvious even as a s1mple fanboy there is nobody who is even remotely close to what this kid provides in the server for his team he is the Messi of CS Go. s1mple is an unreal talent with the highest skill and skill ceiling in the entire scene hater or not you can't deny this but zyw0o had a better year that isn't even debatable at this point, statistics don't matter when they are the 2 best and most complete players who ever existed on CS Go. That being said congrats to Zyw0o 2 years in a row top 1 he now joins the group with get_right and coldzera, the most insane and complete player who ever played this game, none is even close to him, he's miles ahead of what s1mple provides for Na'vi. I deadass think Na'vi would be top 5 without s1mple, add any average awper on the team for s1mple and they are still top 5, Vitality without Zyw0o is tier 5 and that's the difference. He carries all these boomers RpK, Apex & Shox but he doesn't even carry them he activates them, his play style is just so inherently lethal to activate his boomer team mates there is none like him really. He is a mixture of s1mple (skill) and Dev1ce (brain and team player/high level skill) no player is comparable to him and he's so young it's actually crazy what he will achieve in CS Go if this game doesn't die. Again respect to Zyw0o and goodluck in future and for s1mple... keep your head up, you're the best in the world but your playstyle doesn't deserves top 1, selfish player who baits and always gets drops, if you can put up those #s Zyw0o does while not being catered to you would be top 1 but you can't.

s1mple has the best raw skill ever, but this is only one aspect of a cs player, zywoo is the full package, s1mple is only insane at raw skill and playing alone, in terms of teamplay he is nothing special, thats why navi is shit, is not his teammates fault, actually zywoo probably has worst team than s1mple individually LOL so being best at raw skill is far away from translating to "the best in the world"

BUT HOW, HE IS WORSER IN EVERY ASPECT, HE IS THE BEST ONLY IN IMPACT RATING AND 1+ RANKING AFTER MATCHES, THATS IT. HLTV members are BLIND?
2021-01-21 03:33
1 reply
Why was ZywOo the best player of 2020? ZywOo edged out s1mple in one of the closest races for the No.1 spot in the history of the HLTV Top 20 thanks to being a more impactful player in the most competitive tournaments and in the biggest matches. He ranked second for rating (1.29), damage per round (85.8) and kills per round (0.81), while his 74.8% KAST was the third-highest overall. He was slightly ahead of the pack in terms of Impact rating (1.38), in part because of his ability to get multi-kills (21.3% of his rounds, the second-best), and also due to the high number of opening kills (0.15 per round, fourth-highest) and clutches (88 1vsX situations won, the highest). Edit: Have a good day!

some fucking ZYWOOO oh yeah baby i knew he would be in the top 5 somewhere
2021-01-21 11:01
Navi = S1mple + Electronic+ 3 extra easy bot. therefore it is almost impossible to win tittles for navi, and if navi does not win big tournaments, S1mple will not get back his no.1 spot. if u check 10 navi matches, u will find, in 8/9 matches flamie,boombla,perfecto holding their bottom 3 positions in navi fragglist . U can not expect S1mple and Electronic to win every 2 vs 5 clutch in every single round. i am damn sure, if hltv make top 50 list........ still boombla,perfecto,bit,flamie will not get a rank in that top 50 players list. PS: no doubt zywoo is a genious.

you can say the same for zywoo, so what? lol s1mple is a bot in terms of teamplay, we are not in 2015, u will not win titles being selfish and playing alone if s1mple got less kills but helped his team more, he would become a better player, you noobs only look at numbers and ignore context. zywoo is way ahead of s1mple because he is the full package, not only a kd booster and highlight hunter.

ZywOO skilled player but that is not normally, This very very insane....They need to check him pc and game.....Maybe he not cheating but maybe he using the game deficit ...and this cant seem on game screen..He needs to check-up....Day0s FPL Cheater with Streaming.....I think day0s still cheating...Zyw00 using game deficit on PRO scene ,ON BIG Events.Maybe everyone dont knows him trick.He incredible....I want to ask his where is the comming of your skill's ?
2021-01-21 14:11
Looking back at the comment section on his "One for the future" people doubting him during that time aged like a fine wine. Well tossing for #1 in another year Master Xi Wu!
2021-01-21 16:47
And some delusional somple fans actually thought simp was close to zywoo’s lvl. Zywoo is on a lvl of his own, no other player is even close. Simp even use all his team as bait for stats and he is too scared to go first and entry. Zygod does that all the time. Simp fans go home. Bow down to the undisputed #1 ZyGod!
