Video: HLTV.org's Top 20 players of 2020

HLTV.org presents a fragmovie featuring the best highlights from the Top 20 players of 2020 ranking, powered by GG.BET and Xtrfy.

Plays from Mathieu "⁠ZywOo⁠" Herbaut, Aleksandr "⁠s1mple⁠" Kostyliev, Nicolai "⁠device⁠" Reedtz, and Nikola "⁠NiKo⁠" Kovač are all featured in our annual Top 20 players of the year fragmovie. This year's edition was put together by our moviemaker Filip "filq" Szatkowski and contains 10 minutes of action.

ZywOo's memorable highlight against NAVI is featured in the video

Alongside the aforementioned players that finished in the top-4 of the ranking for 2020, the video also spotlights plays from the likes of Robin "⁠ropz⁠" Kool, Henrique "⁠HEN1⁠" Teles, and Justin "⁠jks⁠" Savage.

The latest edition of the Top 20 ranking, which you can read about in our introduction article, saw the likes of Nemanja "⁠huNter-⁠" Kovač, Martin "⁠stavn⁠" Lund, and Florian "⁠syrsoN⁠" Rische place on the list for the first time, while ZywOo equaled the record of Christopher "⁠GeT_RiGhT⁠" Alesund and Marcelo "⁠coldzera⁠" David by securing his second first-place finish.

Watching s1mples highlights feels insane. He is still one of the best players in the world.
2021-01-22 20:52
Jeeez what a boring video ffs. You have the material to edit highlights of the best players in the world and you make "this". Such a shame and the music, HOW CAN YOU PUT THIS IN THE FRAGMOVIE??

2021-01-22 21:29
HLTV cut the part of Harry's cast for the s1mple's ace against Liquid so here it is: "s1mple !!!!!!!!!!!!! 1 IN THE NAME, NUMBER 2 IN THE GAME, HE'S DONE IT AGAIN ! " First ever back to back #2 ! (joke obviously addressed to sam2k and his alts, not real Na'Vi fans).

terrible choices for frags as well. NiKo is the crispiest one tapper in the entire game and they show a fucking awp quad kill that's not even impressive.
2021-01-23 14:56
music is so wrong, I don't feel any hype or smth like that. Just compare this vid to 2019 and 2018 videos, music is so dissapointing. Feels like its the same song on loop Still nice edit, but music could be a lot better
