The only player to stay at the same position as in our last year's ranking is Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund, who finds himself once more being a close 2nd. The world's best fragger earned this place by playing well at every tournament with his new team SK Gaming, and displaying several MVP worthy performances throughout the year.

As a member of the newer generation of top players, Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund's story in the big leagues starts in 2007, when he was for a short while a part of SK Gaming. But it wasn't until 2009 that he received his first real chance by joining fnatic, where he proved himself right from the start, helping the team dominate throughout that year and in the end he claimed the title of Best Counter-Strike Player of 2009.

In 2010, fnatic had somewhat less success, but were still a stable second best team behind the Ukrainians Natus Vincere, and Alesund continued playing on the highest level finishing 2nd on our Top 20 of 2010.

At the end of the year though, Alesund and his teammate Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg needed a new challenge, so they tranferred to SK Gaming in search of greener pastures.

SK Gaming's new lineup was expected to conquer the world immediately upon forming, but their first appearance in 2011 was far from the expectations, as they had a forgettable campaign at IEM5 European Championship Finals. Despite a great start with wins over eSahara and mousesports, SK failed to pass the group stage after losses to MYM and Fx, along with a frustrating draw with mTw.

Alesund was overall the best rated in SK with a 1.07 rating, which turned out to be his worst in 2011, as from here on things only got better for him and the team.

The tournament with the biggest prize purse in 2011 ($80,000) was next, IEM5 World Championship, and SK would be looking for a much better result there. They did show improved form, despite playing with Dennis "dennis" Edman as a stand-in, as they went through group stage undefeated now. Still, they ended the event on a disappointing note, with losses in the semi-final to Fx and in the 3rd place decider to mTw.

Alesund had a very good performance overall, actually ending up as the top rated player of the event (1.23 rating), which granted him an MVP nomination. Even though his best performance was in the 3rd place decider, he played consistently well throughout the tournament, above team's average in 9 of 11 maps. Although his MVP nomination wasn't fruitful, mainly due to his efforts not helping his team to a podium place, he was still later selected into the All-Star lineup as one of the best players of the tournament.

SK showed further improvement in their form at HLTV.org's Xperia PLAY prelude, as they came out on top of the online tournament, defeating mTw in the final without many difficulties. Alesund was by far the first star of the whole tournament, top rated with an amazing 1.50 rating and a having a +100 kill-death difference.

SK Gaming had to wait until April for their first notable achievement, when they finished second in Xperia PLAY. After defeating Moscow Five and RG-Esports on their way to the final, they finished the tournament with an early morning defeat to Frag eXecutors. Alesund wasn't the most responsible for their success though, but was a close second with a 1.17 rating.

As the next major tournament, DreamHack Summer, was approaching, SK Gaming decided to make a change in their lineup by signing Marcus "Delpan" Larsson, who at the time was playing for fnatic. A few weeks later, it was time to put the new lineup to the test, and it passed with flying colors. They won the event by defeating Natus Vincere in the semi-final and mTw in the final, while they also came out victorious at IOL FINAL4 a day before and the Swedish WCG qualifier.

Alesund played great the whole weekend, particularly in the international tournament, where he ended up being the team's best rated with a 1.23 rating. He was one of the most consistent players of the event, with a rating above 1.00 in 9 of 10 maps and was the second best fragger, which secured him another MVP nomination. In the end, his new teammate Larsson was chosen for that award, but Alesund ended up being a part of the All-Star lineup for the second time.

They continued their great form at ICSC 8 finals in the second week of July, winning another event and staying undefeated. Alesund played quite well with a 1.16 rating, although only 3rd in the team.

They continued their domination during GameGune, winning 8 maps in a row to climb at the top of another event. Alesund ended up only as the 4th best rated in his team with a 1.29 rating, but he actually excelled in their more important matches, recording a 1.42 rating in the playoffs. His most impressive performance came in the Upper semi-final match against his former team fnatic, when he posted a 31:11 score (1.96 rating, 56% above team's average). Overall, he earned his third MVP nomination, but he was again overlooked, this time in favor of his teammate Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg.

Their invincibility was finally put to an end at e-Stars Seoul, where they succumbed to Frag eXecutors on two occasions and ended up 2nd placed. Still, it was a solid campaign during which they defeated fnatic, mTw and Natus Vincere.

Alesund was shared best rated in the team with a 1.17 rating, although without standing out much, but mostly playing stable in every match. He ended up with the most kills of all players at the event (141) and earned another All-Star nomination.

Even though October didn't start well for SK, as they were knocked out of SEC by Natus Vincere in the quarter-final, Alesund had his best run of form in this month, which began at the Polish event. Despite his team losing 3 of their 5 maps, he was rated above 1.00 in each of them and ended up with an excellent 1.24 rating, later receiving an All-Star lineup selection.

The team quickly found its winning form again, coming out victorious at IEM6 Global Challenge New York. Alesund continued his impressive form, being rated above 1.00 at each of 8 maps in this tournament as well, and having the best rating of all players and his year-highest (1.41).

Although the official MVP award went to mTw's stand-in, our Marc "Nix0n" Winther Kristensen, Alesund's performance was also very worthy of it, as he was the most consistent player, had the most kills, the best kill-death difference and was one of the most dominant.

SK Gaming brought that form to their next event and won their most prestigious title of the year, ESWC. In one of the most competitive events of the year, they outplayed WinFakt, mousesports and lastly Natus Vincere to climb to the top of the world in that moment.

Alesund's individual form hit his peak of the year on this occasion and he was probably the most responsible for SK's success. After impeccable displays in New York and Warsaw, he continued playing above average in every map in Paris as well, reaching 24 maps in a row with ratings above 1.00. Overall, he ended with an impressive 1.36 rating, was the best fragger of the tournament and the best in pistol-rounds. However, the MVP title once again slipped from his hands, as it went to Finn "karrigan" Andersen from 3rd placed mousesports. Despite that, many consider him the actual Most Valuable Player of the event, as his team finished in 1st place.

At DreamHack Winter, SK suffered another disappointment at the hands of Natus Vincere, ending the tournament in the quarter-final, same as at SEC. Alesund's domination found its end on this occasion, as his streak ended at 26 maps in a row with ratings above 1.00, while he still had a solid display with a 1.16 rating as team's second best.

World Cyber Games were the last major event in 2011, and despite not being one of the more competitive ones, this tournament decided the best team of the year by most accounts. SK Gaming came out on the losing side of that battle, being outplayed in a close final battle against the Poles of ESC Gaming.

Alesund was once again one of the stars of the event and one of the main reasons for SK's overall success. He recorded event's 3rd highest 1.27 rating, while accumulating the most kills and the best kill-death difference. He was voted man-of-the-match in all three playoff victories of his team (against TyLoo, DTS and Moscow Five), while he was also the one who put up the most fight in their loss in the final. That resulted in another MVP nomination for Alesund, and although he was again not picked, he received his 6th All-Star selection.

Best fragger of 2011

Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund proved to be the most stable player in the last few years, as after being named the Best CS Player of 2009 and 2nd best in 2010, he continued in the same manner in 2011. Although SK didn't achieve world domination as their new lineup may have suggested, they were certainly one of the two best teams during the year, in the end by most accounts ending as second, but for some periods being the best.

Alesund was their most influential player throughout the year, as he played well in every tournament they attended, while being selected in the All-Star lineup at 6 of them. However, MVP titles kept slipping away from him, whether in favor of his teammates or someone else, as despite being nominated on five occasions, he was never named the best player of an event.

Regardless of that, his influence was obvious, particularly at ESWC where he played incredible and helped his team win their most prestigious title. He played great in his team's other title-winning campaigns too, at GameGune, DreamHack Summer and especially IEM6 GC New York, as well as in during their runner-up campaigns at WCG and Xperia PLAY.

Alesund was the best fragger of the world in 2011, recording the most kills of all players in major tournaments (2070), as well as the best average (0.83 kills per round). His impressive rating of 1.24 was shared second best, while he was the 3rd most consistent with 72% of maps rated above 1.00.

Thanks to his overall performance, which also included never being rated below team's average at 11 tournaments and always having a rating above 1.00, he was a certain member of this year's "big two". However, someone had to be the close second, and while on some other occasion Alesund's display would be enough for 1st place, in 2011 there was someone slightly more impressive.

2012-01-19 15:04
I usually think your rankings are fair, however placing GTR top2 this time is not what I'd have done. Everytime there's a situation like this one(Two players so close to each other), it looks like you're only looking at which team won the most titles during the year, and I think this is not fair. Moreover, you cannot rely on the "MVP System" you set up, as everyone knows that people ain't objectives here, of course NEO has won more MVP Titles than GTR but everyone knows that NEO has many more fanboys than GTR voting for him whatever the tournament. And as we are talking here about the best player of the year, not the favourite one, GTR had to be first IMO. Anyway, great year for both of them, 2nd place is huge for a player ^^. But please: Most notable stats: best fragger (0.83 kills per round), most kills (2070), shared second best rating (1.24), best rifler (0.68 KPR), best AK47, 3rd most consistent (72% of maps rated above 1.00). Looks like everything was said here...
2012-01-19 15:22
coz NEO worked on this with his skill - to have many fans.
2012-01-19 15:56
i love how everyone thinks they are an expert and tell the hltv staff what to do, they have been doing this for a while, im sure they know much more then you do and that they thought off the best possible options as to how to make this ranking as true to life as possible!
2012-01-19 18:25
Everything I said is true. I just said that I would have given GTR the first place. End of story

2012-01-19 02:05
can i ask u something Tgwri1s pls statistics shows that gtr must be 1st so this top isnt only by statistics right ? answer pls
2012-01-19 02:05
Did you even read top20 Introduction? You can find all criteria there.
2012-01-19 02:08
But you haven't seen #1's statistics yet, have you? And no, it's not ONLY by statistics, that was explained many times already, including the introduction post...
2012-01-19 02:08
It's amazing how you never indulge in the comments boxes unless it's to answer somebody. Do you even play 1.6?
2012-01-19 02:10
Yes, of course I do, how else can someone acquire so much love for this game :)
2012-01-19 02:11
Well, thanks for taking the time to share it with us. Much appreciated.
2012-01-19 02:14
Whatever it says, GeT_RiGhT should be number one this year. He had MVP at NY (but Nix0n got it due to fan votes) and at almost every other tournament aswell. This is the first time I feel this ranking is wrong aswell. Neo hasn't been that outstanding this year.
2012-01-19 02:28
Maybe wait till tomorrow and then judge?
2012-01-19 02:31
Neo with a 1.24 rating a aswell? didnt notice the "shared" word heheh

you probably haven't been watching 1st half of this year m8. Neo was great all yeAR
2012-01-19 12:24
"almost" just doesent cut it
2012-01-21 20:24
can't u read? "shared second best rating (1.24)" - as you see, even by stats gtr wasn't best this year. The stats, which u can see when you go to the 'statistics' in the menu of hltv are gathered from the whole career of gtr and there is shown that he has best rating, but this year, even if he was amazing, even stats shows that he wasn't the n1. And the stats are not the only one deciding factor
2012-01-19 02:11
yeah because kalle have best rating :) and get_right has best statistics for whole year , but Neo take first place because he was better on major tournaments i think (not sure yet) and i see u dont know everything about statistics section :) there is event history of every player and there u can see in every tournament everything about the player so your reply i useless to me sorry
2012-01-19 02:16
yeah, i know it very well 'coz i'm checking it from a few months... I checked them both, but do u know that neo and trace carried their teams much more than gtr? gtr was this year a consistent madfragging beast, but he didn't offer as mych to his team as markeloff, neo or trace did. When SK started to winning? When Delpan joined and was the mvp of the tournament. Always there was someone who stepped up and helped them to win, while gtr was always the best, but dunno why, not the guy who shined, 'coz he was the same as always. And Neo, even without 1455998pro stats from each match, was amazing on every major and carried the team to win, clutching the rounds and killing everybody. Both of them were at the same level in 2011, Neo was just more like f0rest is in duo of gtr-f0rest: gtr is playing there always amazing and getting his frags, while f0rp is inconsistent, but when he has his day, f0rest is the star of the team. And the same thing with gtr and neo this year, but the difference between f0rest and neo was, that neo was consistent at all.
2012-01-19 02:24
u said absolutely NOTHING!!!!
2012-01-19 13:33
gtr has better stats than neo this year btw
2012-01-19 07:48
Look last year brow. Gtr is always top1 in statistics.
2012-01-19 02:12
NEO it's very good player, but GTR > NEO this year and last year . MY OPINION
2012-01-19 02:18
+1 gtr was more than better than neo this year but hltv.org thinks otherwise
2012-01-19 02:19
how many times gtr was mvp of major events?
2012-01-19 02:26
None, but people forget that nix0n was one time and i ask u: why?
2012-01-19 02:31
stupid question
2012-01-19 02:46
For people like you, maybe.
2012-01-19 03:01
cause everyone loves him for care about this site , do interview and a lot more? he shouldnt be in mvp nomination but people wanted him in there , in normal conditions mvp nominations gets players with best rating and best performance in final
2012-01-19 03:15
???
2012-01-19 03:22
That MVP award was voted for on ESL's site by their users only and it wasn't counted for this ranking. GeT_RiGhT was obviously counted as MVP of IEM6 GC NY, but that doesn't really make much difference.
2012-01-19 03:43
Im glad you counted that MVP, its a fair action. If you read all my posts you gonna see i agree with you 99%. Thx for sharing this information, its enrich the top20. Dont forgetting what i must say: excellent job, keep it up!

the thing is that neo got 3 MVP's and GTR none, mostly because he was never voted enough by his fans...namely DHS, ESWC and GC NY, he would've had the same number of MVP like neo, just better numbers overall
2012-01-19 02:22
3 or 4 MVPs? GTR was 1 time MVP , sadly or not, nix0n kinda stole him. Dont forget one time that a 3rd place player picked his MVP too.

GTR never actually won an MVP title and he was supposed to win it 2 (ESWC,NY) and even 3 times imo (DHS)...I don't know maybe neo had 4 MVPs from what I counted neo was MVP at IEM WC, eStars and xPERIA + which one am I missing?
2012-01-19 02:38
I agree with u brow. Idk, maybe because i am seeing lots of people saying he had 4 MVP titles. I was just asking, not judging. EDIT: He will be WCG MVP... and, yes, u were right, sory brow!
2012-01-19 02:59
Id say that stat-wise GTR definately deserved the mvp in ny. However nix0n stepped up without being a pro player and still did a good job. imagine nix0n's seat at ny and u might actually get why he got mvp.
2012-01-19 23:26
Im not saying otherwise. :D +1
2012-01-20 02:45
You are wrong, neo had better ratio, just not that much kills, anyways fx skipped some tourneys.

2012-01-19 02:09
and he's not number #1, what a joke. Neo can't beat that, seriously.
2012-01-19 02:20
oh cmon, stop crying.
2012-01-19 02:32

2012-01-19 03:38
Mvp award is a combination of experts and fan votes and NEO won 4 this year , also ESC were the team of the year. For me this is enough to become top 1 dispite gtr amazing stats.
2012-01-19 09:08
Mvp award is a combination of experts and fan votes and NEO won 4 this year... Mvp award is a combination of experts and fan votes and NEO Mvp award is a combination of experts and fan votes fan votes

IEM5 WC. Neo - 64.2% experts, 46.9% public XPERIA. Neo - 73.6% experts, 53.8% public E-Stars. Neo - 72.5% experts, 58.8% public He was beast on WCG too and ESC won. He was named MVP in these 3 tournaments (and I'm quite sure, he will be WCG MVP too). Where can you see, that he won mvp from fan votes?
2012-01-19 10:34
this! And yes im assuming that he will be wcg mvp too (:
2012-01-19 12:55

2012-01-19 02:18
I wanted to say it about 10 releases before, but now Im sure. This ranking is totally shit.
2012-01-19 02:18
what a load of shit, every time i read stats on GTR i see best fragger, best rated, highest kd, most frags, best ak, best pistols... yet for some unknown reason, NEO whom has had quite a few subpar tournaments and qualifiers throughout the year is placed above him. makes sense.
2012-01-19 02:18
my thoughts exactly... can't believe this actually. was sure he was #1.
2012-01-19 02:19
Are you even reading the news? Clearly states they share the same rating.
2012-01-19 18:37
I'm sorry, but how the hell can Neo be on top this year? GeT_RiGhT should be number one, can't believe this. What the heck makes Neo on top? Huh?
2012-01-19 02:19
simply was better this year. Maybe next year will be the first!

2012-01-19 02:35
Teamm8s? Is there a criterion for that? Rofl... Neo had the same rating and (4) MVPs, thats all, slightly better. Deserved 1st place.

2012-01-19 02:30
if ESC did not win the WCG would not be the first neo

Here goes the Eastern Europe's fairplay. Congratulations, you have achieved a facepalm.
2012-01-19 02:43
Sure, for you It's unfair cause you're SK fan. Deal with it, Neo was better this year, he made more important frags, he grabbed MVP titles 4 times, and he was meaning more for ESC(best team in 2011-Im sure u cant agree with this too, but im not shocked, every SK fan disagree), he has more important titles in 2011 and overall he was just better. Only thing that is supporting GeT_RiGhT is k/d ratio, unfortanely for you this aspect dont decide about 1st place, oh - GeT_RiGhT was on DreamhackSummer and GameGune, where we haven't seen ESC - Im sure If they would've be there Neo could grab another MVP title, and ESC another win.
2012-01-19 03:03

2012-01-19 13:01
hmm yea, surely he would've got 2 more MVP titles at a possible DHS and GG... getting an MVP title of being the most consistent player against low teams is just weird.. but ye, I don't deny that he's done a few good matches against SK, Na'Vi, but overall, the most consistent player was GeT_RiGhT, I would have even put TaZ in front of Neo... I've seen all ESC matches during the year and I can say that TaZ was more decisive than Neo. I don't deny that Neo is a good player, I like him a lot, I like ESC a lot too, but he really doesn't deserve to get the MVP title of the year...
2012-01-19 09:51
If u watched all matches you're blind then if u say that TaZ was better than Neo. Youre another SK fanboy who couldnt agree Neo was best this year, EOT.

Yea, I'm bling, not blind. And you're the one acting like a fanboy, I'm just saying what I've seen.

2012-01-20 01:56
Neo didn't have a chance vs f0rest at his best.
2012-01-20 12:37
f0rest best was in 1st half of 2010 he was unstoppable.Neo is unstoppable sometimes too. dunno, mb.
2012-01-20 17:03
please don't cry :) next year - new emotions we await!
2012-01-19 02:34
WHAT A JOOKEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!! best fragger (0.83 kills per round), most kills (2070), shared second best rating (1.24), best rifler (0.68 KPR), best AK47, 3rd most consistent (72% of maps rated above 1.00)
2012-01-19 02:34
but do not forget, neo did not attend Gamegune where he easily would get a rating above 1.25, as most teams were not top teams (look at the stat section) and he also didnt attend global new york GC, so who knows
2012-01-19 02:43
shut up really, Neo doesn't deserve #1 this year.
2012-01-19 02:57
u mad? Neo deserved to be first.
2012-01-19 08:36
Taz #1 ! was better than Neo
2012-01-19 10:48
he would get 0-15 vs SK,NaVi and ex-esc,so his rating wouldnt be 1.25
2012-01-19 03:32
Nostradamus?
2012-01-19 09:13
yeah, right, stats are most important thing in this game. you got me.

2012-01-19 03:30
yeah, dont know why so many people hates gtr, its gtr and cArn who does thins like stream and so on to keep the game alive..

not saying GTR didn't deserve this placeing but it's not that hard to get good rating when you're never the first guy entering the bombsite :]
2012-01-19 02:54
LOL? Why he is number 1 statistically since 2009? Is it because he "never" enter the bombsite? comon... respect plz! I would love to know how he plays when he is ct, amuse me, plz!
2012-01-19 03:20
either you have a low understanding of the game or you dont watch SK (and GeT_RiGhT) enough. i think he is one of the worlds best players no matter how he plays but as i said in #314, his playstyle helps him get better ratings than players like f0rest and Gux that are 10 times more likely to be the first guy in to the bombsite. you can even ask him yourself, he's the first one to admit it. :) and it's the same as CT. he's never the frontline guy when his team is retaking a site. he's playing passively and waiting for the terrorists to show and/or take duels against his teammates so he can outaim them while they are firing onto his teammates. or he's simply just trying to backstab and while doing so also playing very passively, walking the entire way to the bombsite instead of running and therefore more often than not gets his backstabbing kill but doesnt have enough time to defuse and chooses to run away and save his gun (unless his team managed to overtake the site already.) that explanation long enough for ya?
2012-01-19 04:54
I wasn't expecting this, for real. You should write in a different way, cause you totally seem a troll at your first post, principally at: "it's not that hard to get good rating when you're never the first guy entering the bombsite". Im glad your not. You did showed me, in your point of view, how GTR plays, why? You made your point at the begging. Btw its interesting your "slam" at the end,"ya", it could represent proud and narcissism. Well, what i want to say is simple: If u were correct you would be correct. Playstyle (sic) doesn't make an higher ratio, skill, experience ,a good decision and principally consistency does. People think that they know everything, careful. Do you really know that well GTR playstyle? Peace! Peace!
2012-01-19 05:49
Please just look at the highlights ;o Perfectly show what he is talking about. And of course it's true that entry killers have much harder job and worse stats. I'm one and I see that every day. Sometimes the most kills, but most deaths, too. But I must say that Neo isn't the only entry killer in ESC like it was in the past. TaZ, Pasha are sometimes, too. I think they chose EK live, basing on form. And this tells us that Neo has slightly changing his playstyle or just enemies learn how to counter his enters :)
2012-01-19 08:55
It just seem wrong this discredit. Thats all.
2012-01-19 16:16
+1 very well said..
2012-01-19 06:06
You just explained everything. I had that kind of player in my team. He was good aimer but his playstyle makes me furious. Never to be first, always top score even when we were losing like 13-2. IMO other players like gux/trace are more valuable because they can go and clean BS by themselfs. People are saying that he was top1 stats etc. but why for bloody hell he wasn't MVP during the year? Coincidence? btw. f0rest is much better than gtr.
2012-01-19 08:44
Real truth :)
2012-01-19 09:15
ye and SK is a random mid team found on irc,lo0lo0lo0l
2012-01-19 03:30
do you have a problem understanding english? i never said that SK nor GeT_RiGhT are bad, i just said it's no surprise that GeT_RiGhT gets good rating year after year with the kind of playstyle he has. and the point of my post was that people like Gux and f0rest should get more credit for getting good ratings when they more often than not are the first guy in to the bombsites.

2012-01-19 03:04
You should know that I'm also a big fan of ESX/fX, it's the only team outside Sweden I like. I have been a fan of Pentagram since... I don't know, 2001? GT should've had MVP at GameGune, at ESWC and at NY. I mean Nix0n got MVP at NY... really? I agree that ESC was better than SK this year, but I don't agree with this ranking. GT should've been first this year, he has really been dominating. Even more than Neo. Also, ESC didn't attend those events like you said, so it's irrelevant. GET_RIGHT = 1
2012-01-19 03:16
Imo at ESWC he didn't deserved an MVP title, at GameGune and NY yes, so it gives him 2 MVP titles, while Neo have 4 (even if we add this one from ESWC he still have 3, when Neo 4). That he played more tournaments didn't help him, coz It's another argument that he had more chances, and still was MVP only 3 times (We suppose), also SK didnt won any final against ESC this year, and Neo was called MVP in most of finals they played each other, when GeT_RiGhT wasn't performing so well, and carrying team like Neo did. Other thing is that 4 SK members are in top20, when we have only 3 guys from ESC - that shows that GTR has better team, but still they couldn't win any title against ESC, and even GTR didn't helped them, when Neo was shining "alone" in ESC(of course, every player had big impact, but Filip was just outstanding). I dont want argue with you, Its your opinion and I respect it, EOT.
2012-01-19 03:26
get right didnt carry his team like NEO did?did you watch the stats?HE WAS ALWAYS ABOVE TEAM AVERAGE
2012-01-19 03:30
Read my text again, I mean he didnt carried the team in matches against ESC, especially in finals, as Neo did :)
2012-01-19 03:31
The only thing I disagree with is that Neo > GT this year. It's just not true :p
2012-01-19 03:43

2012-01-19 03:39
Pentagram (Neo, TaZ, LUq etc...) took CS to another level with their tactics. Ergo I've been a fan of them. Just like zet and SpawN revolutionized play style.
2012-01-19 03:42
please delete your account...i mean u are saying that u have been folowing Pentagram since 2001? Pentagram were formed in 2005 any words?
2012-01-19 03:50
I misspoke, I meant 2003. Pentagram was formed late 2003, I think. So yeah, no. I've been around longer than you. I know for a fact Pentagram CNN existed late 2003.
2012-01-19 03:57
And no, I wont my delete my account. But maybe you should get your facts straight.
2012-01-19 04:03
Pentagram did not reinvent too many tactics, they usually focus on skill and count with Neo to help them. For me, Pentagram is not the most impressive team of CS history, far from that, but Neo is the best player ever. He took skill to another level.
2012-01-19 12:38
look at 2010 - they changed their line-up and they did play shit! even when neo was fragging like crazy, so don't say that neo is the reason why they are wining - this simple fact shows he isn't.
2012-01-19 16:59
I'd say Attax took CS to another level with their tactics in 2006.

in general, THIS RATING JUST BIG JOKE! BIGGEST JOKE THIS YEAR... how the fuck neo can be at 1st place, if in the first half of the year, he played like a bum???????
2012-01-19 06:42
I think the reason (also the reason I would have expected it to be 1-neo 2-gtr) is ESC being the most successful team of the year closely followed by SK. sk-gaming.com/content/36079-Polish_power..
2012-01-19 06:58
Well, the joke here is your sentence "in the first half of the year, he played like a bum". I guess you missed that half of the year and decided to assume he played badly? Or your memory simply doesn't serve you... Anyway, it speaks about your objectivity and the weight of your words.
2012-01-19 11:42
wtf? Neo was much better than gtr at 1sthalf of the year, if u want to say gtr>neo, get some knowledge - gtr could be better in the second half, not the 1st. While GTR was having 1.07 at iem5euro and 1.17 at xperia play, neo had 1.33 and 1.32... i'd say the best period of this year of neo was the 1st half...
2012-01-19 11:44
Actually the first half of the year was far better than the second one.
2012-01-19 12:23

best fragger (0.83 kills per round), most kills (2070), shared second best rating (1.24), best rifler (0.68 KPR), best AK47, 3rd most consistent (72% of maps rated above 1.00).... it's really impressive but maybe we should wait for neos stats before we judge who is better ?

for fragger you have statistics that shows you are the "best fragger", it's about the best player, which includes how you play for your team, you win a tournament with your BIG help, brain, aim, movement, actions, performance, etc... all this things makes the best player, and neo > get right in that bro.

2012-01-19 07:20
I don't really get why people get so angry, this is just stats, it doesn't mean you can't have your own opinion on who is the best player. Tgwri1s; You have done an amazing piece of work two years in a row and I really hope you don't get discouraged by all these idiotic comments. GeT_RiGhT will go down in history as one of the most talented players of all time and at the end of the day it doesn't make a difference if he is number 1 or 2. Looking forward to the top 1 article.
2012-01-19 07:22
Great statement, satanioN.
2012-01-19 09:42

2012-01-19 07:43
tbh he doesn't deserve the first place, sure he's a good player but I don't think that he's the best in 2011

I don't know why so much questions and "?????" It was clearly the battle between get right and neo, no f0rest no markeloff and ofc not trace could be compared to these players this year. But in the same way as they were a step higher than the others, neo was a step above get right. Well deserved for the best fragger in the world, 2nd place is really good, but overall the master of counter strike 1.6 is NEO, the one and only.
2012-01-19 08:00
nix0n will be at 1st place! ;-)
2012-01-19 08:01
NEO got 1st place because his teammates weren't stars. Therefore you can see NEO's difference more than GTR. but There's delpan with his incredible awp and f0rest's aim in SK. and GTR has played with them. and i have to say GTR has changed his team this year. if we have to talk for last 3 years : GTR (21) Player of 2009 2nd @2010 2nd @ 2011 NEO (24) 1st @ 2011 7th @2010 <1 @ 2009 But in the end, i would like to see both of them on 1st place.
2012-01-19 08:17
in terms of rating, having "worse" teammates can be in your favor, yes. but neo brings it just the same and single handedly often cleans it up when facing gtr/f0rest/delpan. so i think it's more than justified that he alone is 1. this year.
2012-01-19 08:59
He didn't just play against SK. there's tons of matches he had. group matches.... Also, it's hard to get frag when you had better players. because they're hard to die therefore they need you less for backup.
2012-01-19 10:18
yeah, i anknowledged that he can get a good rating because he is better than the rest of esc. but if you forget about ratings for a moment, he single handedly lead esc to win all those sk stars combined many times this year
2012-01-19 10:50
and everybody used to say "GOLDEN FIVE" because of him.
2012-01-19 11:08
i didn't mean to say single handedly but you said it yourself that esc has 1 star and sk has at least 3 stars. but that 1 star overcame those 3 combined. ofc i think the rest of esc is good
2012-01-19 11:40
they had better teamplay.
2012-01-19 12:09
i know. but all rating aside he deserved it more than anyone being the key player in the best team. also, you do know that gtr is notoriously known for getting good rating by going for easy frags in group matches and neo always plays the same passive style :>
2012-01-19 12:20
f0rest(5) > taz(6) Delpan(9) > pasha(18) Don't you think ESC needed NEO for backup more ? so NEO had more chance to get frag? Also, GTR has played against major teams like how he played against ordinary teams. rush and get 2-3 more frags then die. Anyway, we don't have to talk about HLTV.org's thoughts. we know how they failed in their top10 highlights. just check their January-June top10 and 2011's top10 i ask you hltv, are you kidding us?
2012-01-19 12:40
So many guys saying "Gz Neo!" instead of congratulating GTR with his [well decerved] 2nd place... Gz GTR :)! Neo will have his time to shine, but for now, let GTR have his glory :]
2012-01-19 08:14
I think that 2nd place is not that cool because you lost a final.

2012-01-19 09:33
Only reason why Neo is top1 is because ESC won SK in last tournament and so on was best team this year. IMO Get_Right should have been top1 but just my opinion =)
2012-01-19 09:37
top 1 - Xek
2012-01-19 09:43
I laugh so hard when I read GtR fanboys, if you rly like GtR so congratulate your fan or something and stop blaming rest of world that neo in 2011 was better. for me almost GtR = Neo in this year but 4me Neo was play better in important matches with top teams when FX/ESC need something magic, Neo was this person and this is difference for me. GtR maybe is best fragger but in cluch matches he sometimes failed or f0rest/face make a job for him. Ofc I dont see all SK and ESC matches but you probably also not. So leave verdict to someone who looks at all objectively !

GtR was beast almost always but he was failed on most important matches thats true...Neo often play good only with top teams.
2012-01-19 11:51
I just don't agree with this ranking. GT has been the best player in the world for three straight years, and yet other people gets ahead of him in this ranking? Because they have larger fanbase? I guess people are just to accustomed to GT having monster stats almost every game, thus not appreciating it as much as when Forest or Neo gets it.

So can someone explain me why most of you guys think that forest is the best player in history of CS? Ive been watching new era of CS for 3 years now and the clash always been between Neo and Get_Right. Forest is always somewhere TOP4 place, you even forget about Markelof who is for sure better than mr. Wood.

deserved #2 for GTR and #1 for Neo, ok GTR was playing amazingly but Neo's rating compared to his team's rating is higher than GTR's rating to his team. I mean f0rest played a bit better than TaZ and face and Delpan were better than pasha and kuben so Neo's place at this ranking is deserved
2012-01-19 12:05
if you say "I mean f0rest played a bit better than TaZ and face and Delpan were better than pasha and kuben so Neo's place at this ranking is deserved" gtr should be first , because its harder to frag...

it doesn't go this way. Kuben, pasha and taz are good enough to rape some random teams and they have many frags, but they dont help so muchhhh versus top teams, but anyway it's not important, neo was just better when you look on whole year
2012-01-19 12:27
Well its kind of hard getting frags when you play with BETTER players also? isnt it? i mean if you have a madfrager like f0rest in the team also he is going to take alot of frags...and not let you have so manY? you see?neo maybe have a chance that GTR doesnt alot of times then...like taking frags when his teammates doesnt... it isnt that easy :). But i think neo deserve this.
2012-01-19 18:19
I must agree, but as I wrote it's not so important
2012-01-19 20:32
For sure it's harder to die, because you have to play less eco rounds, so if you play in better team, your rating is higher.

2012-01-19 12:56
what a joke... Most notable stats: best fragger (0.83 kills per round), most kills (2070), shared second best rating (1.24), best rifler (0.68 KPR), best AK47, 3rd most consistent (72% of maps rated above 1.00) how can he not be number 1?
2012-01-19 12:57
because you haven't seen #1's statistics yet
2012-01-19 13:08

2012-01-19 13:09
1v1 GTR had 15 hp its the same 1 shot killed him NEo vs deco at WCG and he cant kill GTR(deagle) in the end too long lol NEO vs. SK GAMING - E-STARS SEOUL 2011 - eco hunter the only good action is e-Stars Seoul 2011: Neo vs SK Gaming GTR>Neo

2012-01-19 15:08
Awww... GTR fanboys say that he's 1, and neo doesn't deserve to be top1 and they claim they aren't fanboys. Kinda strange.
2012-01-19 15:09
+10000 Moreover thay claim that everyone except them is neo's fanboy :)
2012-01-19 15:56

Well, when luq left, pasha wasn't strongest pick, but he got used to playing in big team and now they win. And they don't need changing players every 6 months like most nordic teams. That's why i love them.

This made my day. Get_right is so bad just frag hunting idiot. Fool player
2012-01-19 16:18
+1 gtr is a sick aimer but still this game is not only about hunting frags - being best in statistics is not making you the best player - it's like the old truth - my dog has 4 legs, I have 2 so we both statistically have 3... I mean - what makes the best player is what he does in these most important moments - if you can win a 1v1 that ends a match and makes you a winner of a major tournament it's more than when you can hit 40 even most amazing frags in a group stage match. I think gtr is sick aimer but psychically he is not so good... He is very emotional and underperformes in decisive situations.

2012-01-19 17:28
lal: Rating is calculated by comparing a player's average stats... -kills per round -survived rounds per round -a value based on number of rounds with multiple kills. the whole hltv organisation sat together on a table: guy A: "Ok guys lets make a rating as worthless as possible to satisfy retarded fanboys!" guy B: "Nonono, thats not enough! lets add mvp awards, so that the retarded fanboys can boost their favorite player, no matter how they play!" guy A: "Brilliant!" guy B: "NEONEONEONEO! <3" gj guys!
2012-01-19 17:46
GJ gtr fanboy. MVP is voted by experts and fans.
2012-01-19 19:02
GJ gtr fanboy. MVP is voted by experts and fans. and thats the problem. i dont give a shit about get_right or any other cs player. doesnt change that get_right was best in 2011
2012-01-19 19:22
haha this is a parody of sk gaming fans, GTR is a better but they ifc vote for f0rest ...
2012-01-19 19:57
I can see how your sheep see you as a leader.
2012-01-19 20:12
which sheep?
2012-01-19 20:41
Maybe ship?
2012-01-19 21:16
LOL! Every time I see someone write "GTR should have been first :(" or something like that, I see a Polish guy replying "Neo the best omg stfu neoneoneo!!!!!!!" ... It's just rude if you ask me... I really liked Neo when I started playing CS, but i've kinda lost a bit of respect for him, just because his fans are being such d*ckheads (No I don't mean em' all...) :S Yeh, I think GTR > Neo 2011 (And the last couple of years) And this is my opinion, so please don't reply me with this "Neo the best obviously" bull$h!t, ty.
2012-01-19 17:51
Gtr=neo thats all in this topic.
2012-01-19 17:55
Whad'ya mean?
2012-01-19 18:06
For me it is better Neo, but I can not really say that one is better because the difference between them is small. Both are better than you and we only according to our opinion we speak: 1.neo 2.grt 1.gtr 2.neo objectively: 1.neo and gtr in that year 2. ////

nevermind, its in their subhuman genes.
2012-01-19 17:59
Yeah I guess ;) It's just a bit annoying, that's all :]
2012-01-19 18:08
so you are a monkey
2012-01-19 19:07
Yes
2012-01-19 20:22
so look at fans of gtr, they all say "neo top 1 only because of his fanboys" and sth like that...
2012-01-19 19:16
Well, the reason they say that is because sometimes they vote for Neo, when it's obviously GTR that played the best :)!
2012-01-19 20:24
so what? he didn't win any mvp because of fans' votes
2012-01-19 20:43
True, but i'm not talking about just that :) I see alot of Poles bragging about "Neo da best" all the time anyways, and it's just freakin' annoying... Like, I like kalle, love his playstyle, but I don't go around talking about him ALL the time :S
2012-01-19 20:52
it's because u scandinavians got many great players and we have only g5 :D
2012-01-19 20:58
Well, it's mostly Sweden, but we got some ;P
2012-01-19 21:00
but still people will say neo is good, cuz fanboys...
2012-01-19 18:09
Most notable stats: best fragger (0.83 kills per round), most kills (2070), shared second best rating (1.24), best rifler (0.68 KPR), best AK47, 3rd most consistent (72% of maps rated above 1.00) and then only rank 2? so the ranking seems not to be based on statistics
2012-01-19 19:02
no its not as they stated in the intro
2012-01-20 02:17

2012-01-20 06:59
Well done GTR, it's hard to be second on your own block let alone second in the world in any aspect of life. :) Thank you hltv for all of the cool s#it you do. Don't let the flamers, trolls, and unappreciative people bring you down. Thank you for keeping up with, promoting, and generally helping to keep a dying esport from disappearing. And I know some of the pros read this stuff, if you are reading this, thx for the years of pwnage!
2012-01-20 08:05
lets see statistic boiz gtr rating 1.24 neo rating 1.24 (do not see at gtr main rating, it is from all gtr's official matches) gtr play with 3 players with 1.20+ kd ratio, neo with only one neo 4xMVP, gtr 0xMVP neo 35% man of the match of his all matches, gtr 20% neo 2nd most dominant, gtr not classified neo kills per round 0.82, gtr 0.83 ahah come on its only 0.01 and because of that gtr must be 1st? best rifler (0.68 KPR), neo sometimes play awp and he is 5th best entry killer gtr most kills (2070), neo doesnt play in dreamhack summer and gamegune in statistic neo win =)
