The time has come for us to review the year 2010 and see which players were the real stars of Counter Strike 1.6. Here at HLTV.org we always like to try new things, so this time we have prepared a list of Top 20 players in 2010 whose members will be announced gradually over the next few weeks.
The idea came from the fact that our statistics section of the site has truly blossomed in the past year as we collected numbers from every major and many minor tournaments, as well as adding many details such as event recaps with stats about best awpers, best entry killers etc. Having in mind that it is practically impossible to watch all the matches throughout the year, statistics have enabled us to thoroughly analyze every tournament and player.
In addition to stats from major LAN tournaments, we have also considered team achievements, individual awards and also each player's crucial performances in big matches. That all added up to a list which we will present to you over the next few weeks in form of detailed articles about each player's performance in 2010, as we count down towards the best player of the year.
Here is what our list of the Top 20 players of 2010 looks like:
1. Yegor "markeloff" Markelov 2. Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund 3. Martin "trace" Heldt 4. Sergey "starix" Ischuk 5. Ioann "Edward" Sukhariev 6. Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg 7. Filip "Neo" Kubski 8. Danny "zonic" Sørensen 9. Andreas "moddii" Fridh 10. Marcus "Delpan" Larsson 11. Jordan "n0thing" Gilbert 12. Rasmus "Gux" Ståhl 13. Christophe "sixeR" Xia 14. Danny "fRoD" Montaner 15.
