Best player of 2021 to be unveiled during first-ever HLTV Award Show

Join us on January 22 to witness the final three spots on the Top 20 Players of 2021 ranking be revealed live on stream.

For the first time ever, HLTV.org will host an Award Show at a studio location in Copenhagen, where the standout performers of the past year will be celebrated. As a part of the show, which is supported by GG.BET, the players ranked #3, #2, and #1 in 2021 will be announced.

Count down to the reveal of the #1 player with us on Twitch

The HLTV Award show will take place on a two-stage setup and be hosted by some of the best on-air talent in the game, Freya "⁠Freya⁠" Spiers and Chad "⁠SPUNJ⁠" Burchill, with appearances from HLTV.org's duo Milan "⁠Striker⁠" Švejda and Zvonimir "Professeur" Burazin as well.

Select guests will take part in the show, some of them in person, but primarily calling in from home or bootcamp locations around the world. Alongside the reveal of the Top 3 of 2021, awards will be given out to the best team of 2021 and for the best highlight of 2021.

Top 20 players of 2021: Introduction

During the show, we will provide more insight into the process of determining the Top 20 players of the year ranking, sharing details such as which events are and which aren't taken into consideration. Additionally, we will reveal the three players which were the closest to making the Top 20 list for 2021 but unfortunately failed to make their way in.

Don't miss out on our recap of the year either, as we will start the show by going through 2021, discussing the biggest events and storylines of each quarter, and looking at how the three best players performed in different parts of the year.

The HLTV Award Show kicks off at 19:00 on January 22, and will be streamed live on Twitch. Make sure to follow our channel and turn on notifications to not miss out on the action. Find out more about the Top 20 players of the year in our introduction article.

When he's on he's on, and it's obvious. But then you'll be thinking he's having an off day...and find out he's still topping the server. That's how good he is...even when he's off...he's on! And he's the only player like that. Everyone else...when they're off, they're off. But what would qualify as a great game for anyone else, is s1mple's version of a mediocre game. He's ridiculous!

So, would you prefer that they would announce as much as top5 in one go? thats quite a lot to digest at once but would be more exciting. I wouldn't mind either way, but top3 is at least better than top2 for this year but also for years to come.
2022-01-15 21:58
HLTV should just say s1mple, everyone knows it there is no hype. It should've been announced on the first day with the 20th best to get it over and done with.

I think they are right that shiro is #3 considering gambits achievements but sorry I personally cant agree. Niko just blasted them away. I know hltv ranking is considering the whole year so shiro 3rd but by the sheer peak preformances niko showed this year has been better then any other peak performance of another pro player. # 1 Simple # 2 Zywoo # 3 Niko # 4 Shiro It would be nice if they made a show of the top3.

2022-01-16 00:11
They made an award show for s1mple
2022-01-16 00:12
isn't this cheating, your getting him on the show again and he still has only one major?
2022-01-16 00:39

just release, everyone knows the list right now
2022-01-16 01:03
would be better if it was top 5, everyone knows that 1st is s1mple, 2 is ZywOo and 3rd is either NiKo or sh1ro and we will know which it is based on whoever is 4th
2022-01-16 01:05
Shiro either 2 or 3 Niko 4 Gg
2022-01-16 01:12
", we will reveal the three players which were the closest to making the Top 20 list for 2021 but unfortunately failed to make their way in." Oh the forums will explode cuz when you put elige in top 20 for that shit year... or a BaitF who literally let his whole team die so he can make 2 frags....this will create a riot.

What a way to celebrate s1mple reclaiming his throne! First player ever to regain his Top-1 spot, after being dethroned previously. Nobody has ever gotten Top1 after being knocked down from it. Just shows the incredible consistency s1mple has. Just like device was 5x Top3, s1mple is 5x Top1/Top2, in a fcking row! Just the best player ever!

I think they are right that shiro is #3 considering gambits achievements but sorry I personally cant agree. Niko just blasted them away. I know hltv ranking is considering the whole year so shiro 3rd but by the sheer peak preformances niko showed this year has been better then any other peak performance of another pro player. # 1 Simple # 2 Zywoo # 3 Niko # 4 Shiro It would be nice if they made a show of the top3. (EDIT: also a forum admin thought it was necessary to delete this post earlier why is a mystery to me)
2022-01-16 14:51

Award shows are generally idiotic IMO. Oscar, ball d'or, hltv. All about milking the cow to the extreme, which kinds of kill the hype for me. It's not competitive, decisions are already made. Watching paint dry is equally exciting.
