January 16th, 2012 00:11

After shining in fnatic for 5 years, Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg spent 2011 in SK Gaming where he continued being one of the best players in the world. After a slow start, the number 5 on our list helped his team reach the top at DreamHack Summer, GameGune, and ESWC. He particularly stood out in the Spanish event where he was named the MVP, while throughout the year he was the best player in pistol-rounds.

Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg is by most people considered one of the best players to have ever touched the game of Counter Strike, and he continues to prove that year after year. In 2010 as a member of fnatic he led the team to several titles, with MVP performances at GameGune and IEM5 GC Shanghai, while he also played great during their most praised campaign at Arbalet Cup Europe. In the end, he was a part of a "big six" that stood out throughout the year, and he was placed 6th on our Top 20 of 2010.

As the year drew to a close, Lindberg, along with Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund, decided to try his luck with different teammates and they both moved to SK Gaming for the 2011 season.

A disappointing start for the new SK Gaming lineup

The first test of SK Gaming's new lineup probably couldn't have gone worse, as they had the highest expectations for IEM5 European Championship Finals but ended up exiting the competition after group stage. Lindberg didn't excel, but he didn't disappoint either, having a 1.04 rating as team's second best, and having a man-of-the-match performance in their victory over mousesports (24:10 score, 1.59 rating).

The opportunity for redemption was a month and a half away, at IEM5 World Championship in Hannover, Germany. SK Gaming was forced to use a stand-in at this event, as Jimmy "allen" Allen was unable to attend, so they called up Dennis "dennis" Edman. That perhaps lowered the expectations and the pressure a bit, and the team showed a better performance, topping their group without losing a match. Still, in the semi-final they lost a big battle with Frag eXecutors and later lost to mTw in the 3rd place decider as well, making them end up in a disappointing 4th place after all.

Lindberg had a very unstable performance at this event, recording his worst rating of the year (1.00). Even though he played below average in most matches, he excelled on a few occasions, especially against his old team fnatic in the group stage (28:11, 1.82 rating).

In preparation for the next major event, SK Gaming played HLTV.org's Xperia PLAY prelude online and finally managed to come out victorious. Lindberg was again unstable overall, but he stepped up in the semi-final against Moscow Five and the final against mTw, playing above average in each map. He ended up as third best in the team with a 1.14 tournament rating.

Xperia PLAY was the first major tournament of the year where SK would reach a podium place, and although they didn't win the event, they had a solid performance and finished second to Frag eXecutors.

Lindberg had his best performance yet, as he led the team with a 1.23 rating and as the 5th best in entry kills and pistol-rounds at the event. Additionally, he shined in their very tough quarter-final clash against Moscow Five having having rating 35% above team's average (70:51 score, 1.35 rating) and was overall great in the playoffs. All that earned him his first MVP nomination of the year, and even though he didn't win in the vote, he was chosen to be a part of the All-Star lineup of the event.

Before DreamHack Summer, SK Gaming concluded that they needed a full-time AWPer in the team, so at the end of May they snatched Marcus "Delpan" Larsson from fnatic. The result was their first title of the year, as they overcame Natus Vincere in the semi-final and mTw in the final.

Lindberg had another unstable performance as the one at IEM5 WC, but he once again had a crucial role in some matches. His most important contribution came in the semi-final clash with the Ukrainians when he was best rated in their both map-wins, while he also ended up as the best rated player in pistol-rounds overall. After the event, he was for the second time in a row selected for the All-Star lineup.

A day before the international tournament at DreamHack Summer began, SK Gaming also won IOL FINAL4 S3 where Lindberg had an amazing performance, ending up by far the best rated of the four-team event with an astonishing 1.58 rating. In the group stage of this event, Lindberg recorded his best performance of the year (and one of the best by any player in 2011), as he had a 43:17 score (2.03 rating) in a match that ended 15-15.

In July, Lindberg's form reached its peak, just like during 2010 when he was the MVP of GameGune and IEM5 GC Shanghai. This time he started with an impressive performance at ICSC 8 finals, where he was by far the best of the tournament with a 1.35 rating, while SK Gaming won another title.

A few weeks later GameGune came along, where SK Gaming continued their winning streak and Lindberg won his 3rd medal from that event (2007 and 2010 with fnatic). He was also named the Most Valuable Player of the tournament for the second year in a row, and while he wasn't the best rated in his team, he was the most stable, playing above average in all 8 maps.

At e-Stars Seoul SK Gaming's unbeaten run came to an end, as Frag eXecutors bested them in the Upper final and in the Grand final. Lindberg didn't excel much this time, but he still playing solid overall with a 1.12 rating and above team's average, which earned him another All-Star lineup selection. Similarly to previous occasions, he was particularly inspired against his former team fnatic, having another man-of-the-match performance against them (26:16, 1.60 rating) and recording another highlight:

SK's first big disappointment with the new lineup came at SEC, where they found themselves knocked out in the quarter-final by Natus Vincere. Despite that, Lindberg played well in every match and earned another All-Star nomination, in particular for being the 2nd best entry killer of the event.

They came back strong in their next tournament, IEM6 GC New York, winning it over mTw and WinFakt, while Lindberg shined having his year-best 1.35 rating, although not the best in the team. He was still one of the main stars of the event, as he played above average in all 8 maps and, had there been a vote, he would have definitely be nominated for MVP of the event.

They had apparently found their form back at the right time, as ESWC was just around the corner. SK Gaming managed to win another event, this time one of the most competitive ones of the year, as they had to overcome WinFakt, mousesports and Natus Vincere on their road to first place.

Similarly to the New York tournament, Lindberg was one of the stars of the event, although once again not the best in his team. He had an excellent 1.28 rating (3rd best of the event) and played above average in 9 of 11 maps. He initially shined in the group stage as the best rated of that part, but more importantly he was best rated in the final against the Ukrainians (51:32 score, 1.30 rating). That earned him another MVP nomination, but he had to be satisfied with his 5th selection for the All-Star lineup.

A month later, SK faced similar fate to their SEC disappointment, as Natus Vincere stopped them at the quarter-final of DreamHack Winter. Lindberg however didn't miss out on the chance to leave his mark at this tournament as well, having a solid 1.15 rating and earning another All-Star nomination. He especially stood out in a group stage match against eSahara having a 32:13 score (1.81 rating), while he was also the best player in pistol-rounds.

World Cyber Games was the last major event of the year, and the only chance for SK to redeem themselves for the DreamHack disappointment. Despite wanting the gold so badly, they were outplayed by the Poles ESC Gaming in the final and had to take the silver medals. Still, in an overall successful tournament for them, Lindberg was an important factor as team's second best rated with a 1.16 rating. He played above average in every best-of-three encounter, even in the final loss, and he also ended up as one of the best in pistol-rounds, which eventually granted him another All-Star lineup selection.

Changing the team didn't affect his performance

After five years in fnatic, Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg needed a new challenge so he decided to join SK Gaming. In his first year with the new team, he displayed performances on the same level as before, proving that he is one of the best in the world, and he helped bring SK Gaming back to their old glory after an unsuccessful 2010.

Even though Lindberg wasn't as influential as he was a few years ago, he excelled on numerous occasions throughout 2011. Most importantly, he was named the MVP of GameGune which his team won, and also made it into the All-Star lineups in the other two major title-winning campaigns of his team, ESWC and DreamHack Summer. In addition to that, he also performed excellent at their 2nd place campaigns, WCG, e-Stars and Xperia PLAY, which made him one of three players who were selected in the most All-Star lineups (6).

One of the ways he contributes to the team the most is excelling in pistol-rounds, as he was the world's best in them during 2011 with a 1.43 rating, overtaking the title from Natus Vincere's Ioann "Edward" Sukhariev. He was top rated in 20 of his 96 maps, making that 2nd most, although along with two other players, but showing that he often stands out in a match.

For his overall contribution to the team and the fact that he particularly enjoys big matches, as he excelled in so many of them throughout the year, Lindberg had to be placed in the top 5. On the other hand, he wasn't placed higher due to not being the best in his team and due to being the least consistent of the remaining players.

actually most of the people remember only the performances of 2nd half of the year. I remember many performances by trace when in nuke and train he carried mTw all alone, I mean every time mTw played these two maps he was a BEAST. I also remember people saying de_nuke=de_trace and also on other maps he was really stable. So, I think trace will be in the list. :)
2012-01-16 05:42
trace ofc. 1. gtr 2. neo 3. markeloff 4. trace
2012-01-16 07:45
I'm thinking more gtr - markeloff - trace - neo, we will see though
2012-01-16 08:46
will see ;) I also think that markeloff was more impressive this year than neo, but only for team awards neo can achieve 2nd place
2012-01-16 13:17
nope trace was way better than markeloff
2012-01-16 18:57
trace? LOL
2012-01-16 13:21
your candidate?

2012-01-16 14:55
its obvious makeloff wont be 1st again... left trace, gtr, and may be xizt...neo and xizt can't be 1st... get right had better stats this year that trace i think...so probably gtr is top1 this year...

lol how come trace in front of forest
2012-01-16 00:18
easy he just was better last year ...
2012-01-16 00:52
Because he was the far best from his team
2012-01-16 08:48
easily, if mtw won't lose team, trace would be top3 at least, at the beggining of the year he was a beast (and the closest guy to neo mvp titles, 'coz gtr wasn't shining there like the rest of sk)

why should he ? with 1,17 rating ?
2012-01-16 00:38
s, but fris was 1.22 and he is 7, so...
2012-01-16 03:25
man when u all will start to use that brain in your heads 1.17 rating is ONLY from MAJOR TOURNAMENTS rest tournaments he has way better rating and KPR statistics are from the WHOLE YEAR not only from 4-5 tournaments fuck.......

ESWC WCG SEC MSI BEAT IT, GameGune - Skipped IEM EU, IEM WC, XPERIA, DHx2, ESTARS - Attended so he played 50% of events, he skipped most competetive events and he will be top4. What a joke. Btw I calculated his stats. f0rest got 1.17, trace got 1.21 (just +0.04) and he skipped 6 events and he will be top4.

now tell me this trace can not be top 5, he only played almost at the beginning of the year and not accumulated titles, if it's going to be ridiculous top4
2012-01-16 00:31
He only skipped something like 2 events, and mTw had a lot of 2./3. places. He was also by far the best from his team, so that's not ridiculous at all...
2012-01-16 12:44
top4 will be zneel.
2012-01-16 00:31
People are eager to post predictions but you gotta remember the whole list is clearly done by simple statistics. Both TaZ and f0rest were better last year than Neo or Trace. Placing f0rest as 5th really opens up a question who is the 4th in the remaining players. Gtr was without a doubt the best player last year, followed by markeloff with only an inch between. I'm guessing Neo is ranked in top4 too (clear fanbois are clear) but Trace? Imo zonic was way more valuable to mTw than Trace was.

check the fucking maps played by trace tomorrow and you will shut up finally. Yes,he missed Gamegune,ESWC and WCG but if you turn your brain on you will see that Navi missed Xperia,WCG,IEM NY.FX missed DH Summer,IEM NY. SK attended almost everything but f0rest was low at the firt half of the year. Edit: btw Gamegune was bo1 so not a big deal missing it

2012-01-16 01:50
dude, markeloff plays only with awp on dust2, train, first half a year also on inferno. starix main sniper only on tuscan and from summer on inferno too.
2012-01-16 10:48
as T side markeloff dont buy awp too much especially on inferno
2012-01-16 11:22
most of his frags are with awp so :)

you're right. f0rest is great madfragger and better than markeloff. f0rest is great with his role in the team, but markeloff is THE BEST with his role in team.

2012-01-16 01:00
online match? ESWC 2010, bro
2012-01-16 07:54
f0rest in sk is like edward in navi. the most stable player.
2012-01-16 00:39
the most stable player in the world is GTR for sure and neo because he is main fragger in ESC and GTR is doing great all the time, even if his team is losing
2012-01-16 00:40
yeah because he gets the most eco frags like Neo while f0rest shoots headshots in gunrounds. That´s the difference.
2012-01-16 00:56
lol sure,gtr is a eco magnet,shut up that argument is so childish
2012-01-16 00:59
Not childish. The truth is that f0rest is an open-fragger while gtr is a player who enters the site when the open frags are made + he really does get a lot of eco frags - just like neo.
2012-01-16 01:01
yeah,he is a eco killer, this is why when sk its losing he had good stats, because he kill just on sk's eco
2012-01-16 01:10
Nice sarcasm. Anyways i´m just saying he has such good stats because he is not an open-fragger like Gux or f0rest. GTR is like Neo he plays very smart and he does get a lot of eco frags and bomb plants/ defuses. Because both neo and gtr are so damn smart they deserve to be top2. f0rest has a different role in the game.
2012-01-16 01:12
some1 has to be an assaulter in the team. Forest does it for SK and if u think middle game is easier(GTR's role), u need to revise ur CS knowledge.
2012-01-16 06:53
neo eco fraggs? Have you ever seen Neo in full weapon rounds? I think you are not
2012-01-16 01:34
Neo isnt stable but sometimes he is unstoppable
2012-01-16 01:56
in 2010 he was stable, in 2011 taz was better in some events

2012-01-16 00:39
nops, trace #4, but in my opinion, don't deserve top 4, maybe top 10-7, in 2010, we as better . To give some notion, in 2011 he did not win any title
2012-01-18 16:12
2nd most kills (1922) ;} f0rest the best player for me ;]

My last reply about this. Did Navi attend Xperia? Did Navi attend IEM New York? Did navi attend WCG? No,son,they didn't. Now fuck off
2012-01-16 00:47
trace was amazing throughout the year, main carry of mTw.. same as Neo in 2010, main carry of FX and GTR 2011 too
2012-01-16 00:50
2010 top1 was markeloff :D
2012-01-16 01:58
oh rly? I just say compare "main-carry" to team's rating, trace's, Neo's and GTR's rating is high above team's rating, same with markeloff in 2011
2012-01-16 02:00
5th ??????????????????????????????? 1th or 2th -.-``

At least he's in top 5. All this top is pretty weird but its unexpected and therefore interesting. Keep on following the news :)
2012-01-16 01:04
I have to say, he wasn't as good as he was in fnatic but this year was still among one of the best years for f0rest in his career. One of the best players to ever play the game for sure. His performance against fnatic at IOL4 was probably the best performance this year from any player against any big team. That POV is a must see! Congrats f0rest, well deserved!

2012-01-16 02:03
That's your opinion.
2012-01-16 10:28
what were his stats?
2012-01-16 15:56
One of the ways he contributes to the team the most is excelling in pistol-rounds, as he was the world's best in them during 2011 with a 1.43 rating, overtaking the title from Natus Vincere's Ioann "Edward" Sukhariev good job puttje!

I sincerely disagree, this year played very f0rest .. I do not mean that he should be top1, but at least he had to be top 3! he was one of many major victories for the SK this year! I also disagree with that 5th place ... I think people who are doing this ranking is not well ...

2012-01-16 01:18
hmm if f0rest #5 then who left for top 4 except for NEO and gtr ??? f0rest deserve top 3 at least
2012-01-16 01:19
Marke is obviously in top3, NEO has no place in top5 but of course in this ridiculous ranking.
2012-01-16 01:25
Do a couple of hits, you're getting grumpy! :D
2012-01-16 01:29
:D I in no way ment that as offensive or grumpy. Just smoked a HUGE joint, nice swedish White Rhino with a kingsize peachflavoured paper. I am not a fan of any player, tho I do support some. face has been my favourite during the past years. Even with a smile, I do think this list is nowhere near the truth.
2012-01-16 01:34
dafuq are you talking about NEO has no place in top 5? Do you watch the same counter strike then I watch?
2012-01-16 09:39
1.17 rating
2012-01-16 02:00
he did more that that and we all know it it still for 2011 we are in 2012 :)
2012-01-16 01:21
They really fucked this one up. f0rest played better than neo this year imo. And if trace is in the top 4 that will make me vomit
2012-01-16 01:21
They totally fucked it up already at Pasha
2012-01-16 01:23
You are so mad, arent you ?
2012-01-16 01:32
No? Not mad at all. I said 'fucked' replying to the original. I do seem to come off as angry but I don't know why. Of course in writing it's hard to get the tone but still.
2012-01-16 01:40
neo has even better stats then gtr
2012-01-16 01:31
Yes he does and the list is done by stats. Stats depend on enemies, on tacs and on overall team performance. I rate TaZ above Neo because TaZ was the one last year to really make a difference in the team. I also would have ranked Pasha way higher than what he got, he played great last year.
2012-01-16 01:45
i would put carn there cuz he did miracle with fnatic , but i can't
2012-01-16 01:47
carn had the trouble of getting a new team together and make it all work on the highest level, and he did. So can't really argue with that one.
2012-01-16 01:53
You are absolutely right.
2012-01-16 01:34
"f0rest played better than neo this year imo" lmao can you give although one event when f0rest had better rating then neo?
2012-01-16 14:42
never expect f0rp on 5th place or trace better thatn a top8-5 but well. f0rest <3
2012-01-16 01:24
Might be the case that Trace is out of the top20 list. Maybe mTw just missed too many tournaments.
2012-01-16 01:28
I really think trace will be there. I dont believe it if any of ex-mtw players are in this ranking xD. Trace or zonic next.
2012-01-16 02:24
no way , he is top4:P

and we have left trace,neo,getright and marik :)
2012-01-16 01:31
f0rest didn't really have an outstanding year for his standards, so I think he and trace are pretty equal, the only differences being that trace was the best player of his team while forest these days isn't. Deserved!
2012-01-16 01:32
lol gtr > f0rest > trace wtf are you talking about dude ?!?!??!? "f0rest didn't really have an outstanding year for his standards" we live on earth come live with us

2012-01-16 01:40
First and princial f0rest is one of the greatest players in the world, and this 2011 with SK Gaming won many events, since in the GameGune was the most prominent being as stated hltv.org, so I'm not very hltv.org under that find place in the top 5 for me, this guy deserves more of the top 5. And worse, what is missing is to put a trace on top 4 do not deserve it.
2012-01-16 01:40

2012-01-16 07:09
Will not. karrigan story - The German team recognized the potential in him at the end of 2010 and it paid off for them as he became their best player during 2011
2012-01-16 08:50
f0rest machine
2012-01-16 07:09
f0rest with Na'Vi = luck. He's afraid of them,cuz he kills them in their's back.

you're right

BEST PLAYER OF COUNTERSTRIKE, IS TOP5??? LOOOOOOOOOOOL!!!!! OK :D but ok i understand, sk is best team on the world, best players are there. u cant have goood stats, if in ur teams are madfraggers like gtr, forp, face, delpan :D not like markelof or neo, they have noobs in team, so they have to play alone, and they have good rating xD

its irony or?
2012-01-16 09:30
I understood your irony, but markeloff has: starix - one of the best world's aimer Edward - one of the best world's fragger/pistol king. Neo has: taz - great player, he was amazing in 2011. Loord - old clutcher, good fragger btw.
2012-01-16 09:50
edward best pistol coz he made 2 5hs aces, OK, HA HA HA man, sk has better players and we all know that
2012-01-16 10:08
bullshit...
2012-01-16 10:09
By statistics I believe the best pistol is forest, quite sure it was stated in this article as well. His 5hs aces (Edward that is) were last year anyway XD
2012-01-16 11:25
man with your logic that means Get_right is the best player (which is true) but i know that u expect Neo first which wont be ;} everyone has his opinion he is 5th because of DPR cuz he is an entry fragger and f0rest still is 2nd most kills so :)
2012-01-16 11:32
wtf, i except neo first? man, gtfo, i want gtr first, i said that if neo will be 1st, it will be unfair, cause neo has noob teammates, and he can kill all opponents, while forest and gtr, have 3 other madfragers in team, and its hart to make single kill, so they deverse more to top1 and top2!
2012-01-16 15:56
Damn, when i look at his highlights i would say, he deserve top1 but I'm not a specjalist. Best actions in this year by forest in my opinion.
2012-01-16 09:37
He did get 1st position at 2011 highlights with his ace against mousesports. But frags are not everithing

he was consistently mTw's best, and he did play all the tournaments first halve of the year. and not just mTw's best, tournament top8 player at LEAST all the time. ofcourse 2nd halve of the year we have barely seen him but he can not be blamed for that surely? kalle was also not excluded because he missed alot of tourneys :P
2012-01-16 20:09
You are right, but i am not gonna hate him but the one making this list. He is grate player but as you said didn't play second year at all. Think if someone have played only 1 tournament and had insane stats, in percentage he would have grate stats but overall its not enough. +i think that the teams success should count too.. ps. Have to let my RL frustrations out =D

2012-01-16 22:29
well im 15 and not from Egland/Usa this tells that my eng is not good , i did copy my list and karrigan was on 3# but i didn't delete/ or hide it just copy and pasted! but even when karrigan was 7 or 8 i left him on list cuz not wanted to edit my list just to post the list i write 2weeks ago!! i just put trace and zneele [my thoughts] who was going to be on 3th since kariggan was 8 or.. can't remember well which was his position! ty.

1. GTR 2. mark 3. Neo imo. Haven't seen too much action from Neo this year Didn't see Trace performing that much =/ idk if he will even be in top 20. He's one of the best but this year was bad for mTw =/
2012-01-16 22:44
dear mate, maybe neo havent much action this year (i mean 4-5k) but in many of tournament he made a great job when his team needed this. Even not much movies don't makes player worse then who have many more :) i think you know what i mean=)
