The 1st place on our Top 20 players of 2011 list and the title of Player of the Year belongs to Filip "Neo" Kubski. The Polish superstar impressed the most throughout the year, being the most consistent and one of the most dominant players. He excelled in other aspects as well, while accumulating four MVP awards and helping his team to four major titles.

Basic information

Most notable stats: 4x MVP, shared 2nd best rating (1.24), most consistent player (78% of maps rated above 1.00), 3rd best fragger (0.82 KPR), 2nd most dominant, most times top rated (28 maps), 5th best entry killer

Ever since his team Pentagram stepped into international waters in 2006 by winning WSVG London, and more importantly World Cyber Games, Filip "Neo" Kubski has been considered one of the best in the business. That is testified with his award for e-Sport Player of the year in 2007, as well as nominations for it in the next two years.

2010 was somewhat less successful for the team, as they struggled to find their game following the first permanent lineup change in years. Kubski was as usual their best player throughout the year, and although he wasn't at the level of the previous years, he still made it to the 7th place on our Top 20 of 2010.

The Poles showed at the very beginning that they planned on turning their luck around in 2011, as they had an excellent performance at IEM5 European Championship Finals. Although they finished only third in the end, they had a flawless group stage performance followed by a never-closer loss to mTw in the semi-final and a win over Natus Vincere in the 3rd place decider.

Kubski was the main reason for such good display of his team, as he was statistically the most impressive player of the event. He had by far the highest rating of all players (1.33) and he achieved that with one of the most amazing displays of consistency throughout the year, having a rating above 1.00 in each of his 10 maps, while 9 of those were above team's average. In addition to that, he was one of the most dominant players, one of the best clutchers and also entry killers. Naturally, that performance earned him an MVP nomination, but he came a close second in the vote behind fnatic's Richard "Xizt" Landström, who led his team to the title.

Frag eXecutors went a step further at IEM5 World Championship, this time making it to the final after wins over fnatic and SK Gaming, although they ended up losing to the defending champions Natus Vincere.

Kubski was once again the obvious star of his team, having the event's 2nd best rating (1.21) and being the most dominant player. He particularly excelled in the quarter-final victory over fnatic (47:32 score, 1.41 rating), as well as in the semi-final against SK Gaming (67:50, 1.15 rating). Thanks to leading his team to the final with those performances, and also doing great in the group stage, he was later named the MVP of the tournament.

Shortly after, they attended ICSC 7 finals where Natus Vincere once again got the better of them, this time in an even more exciting final that stretched over three maps. Kubski continued with his great form, being the team's best and the third best rated player of this event with a 1.14 rating.

Xperia PLAY was the tournament where the Poles would finally climb to the top, defeating TCM-Gaming, mTw and SK Gaming on their road to their first title in 2011. Kubski had his best performance of the year on this occasion, which was more than enough for securing his second MVP award.

The Polish superstar had by far the most kills at the event (320), was the team's best with an excellent 1.32 rating, played well in all 14 of his maps, and most importantly played impressive in the knockout stage (1.31 playoff-rating). Before the playoffs though, he also had one stand-out performance, securing a draw for his team in the match with mousesports by winning a 1vs3 situation in the last round.

After that, he shined in their victories over TCM (43:19 score, 1.49 rating) and mTw (95:70, 1.31 rating, 28% above team), as Fx's best in both encounters, and in the end did very well in the final, as second best rated against SK (42:31 score, 1.16 rating).

Frag eXecutors were later forced to skip DreamHack Summer, as well as GameGune in July, although in the meantime they attended a more nearby tournament for them, ICSC 8 finals. However, the two and a half month break left its trace, as they weren't very successful, succumbing to SK Gaming's improved lineup in the semi-final. Kubski was still as usual the team's best and one of the event's best with a 1.16 rating.

They attended ASUS Summer a month later, and managed to come out on top of the event after an exciting semi-final match against Lions and an easier final versus DTS. Kubski was a close 2nd in his team with a 1.28 rating, 3rd best of the tournament.

Their next major event was e-Stars Seoul where they returned to the top of their form and once again defeated SK in the final. Kubski was named the Most Valuable Player of the event for the third time in 2011, after another tournament-winning performance.

He ended up as 2nd best rated of all players with a 1.24 rating, but most significantly he put in a man-of-the-match performance in the final. In the second and deciding map against the Swedes, which Frag eXecutors won 19-17, Kubski shined with a 38:23 score (1.60 rating, 50% above team average), in what was one of the best individual performances of the year in a grand final.

The Golden Five continued their impressive form, winning their 3rd major event in a row, SEC, that took place on their home soil in Poland. They overcame Moscow Five, Fear Factory and in the end Natus Vincere in an impressive fashion.

Kubski for the first time in 2011 wasn't the team's best rated player, but he still had a very good 1.16 rating and was a big influence on the victory. After a shy group stage performance, he upped his game in the playoffs, especially in the final where he ended up top rated against Natus Vincere (52:34 score, 1.43 rating). That playoff performance earned him his 5th MVP nomination in as many tournaments, but this time the award went to his more impressive teammate at this event, Wiktor "TaZ" Wojtas.

After their SEC success, it was officially confirmed that the team had as suspected left the Frag eXecutors organization in search of better financial support and that they would spent the next period under the name AGAiN. The next big event in line was ESWC, where their form wasn't on the same level anymore, even though they managed to repeat their performance from 2010 and finish 4th.

Just like most of his team Kubski wasn't on the usual level, as he recorded his year-worst 1.07 rating, although still above team's average as their 2nd best. He did stand out at the beginning of the tournament though, as the most responsible for topping their group, with man-of-the-match performances against their main contenders Lions and ESC Gaming, and that eventually earned him an All-Star nomination.

Their next tournament was MSI BEAT IT Russia where they had another unspectacular performance, finishing in 5th place following a quarter-final defeat to Natus Vincere. However, Kubski was back to being the star of the team with a 1.21 rating, which also made him one of the best at the event (5th).

The trend continued at DreamHack Winter where they had another early exit, this time courtesy of Lions in the quarter-final. Kubski was the team's best with a 1.16 rating, mainly thanks to playing above team's average in 5 of 6 maps, which also earned him another All-Star nomination.

At the beginning of December, prior to WCG, the Poles finally found a home in ESC Gaming, who signed them as their new squad for the next season. That would turn out to have a very positive influence on the team, as they won the final battle of the year against SK Gaming in the last match of World Cyber Games and therefore won their 4th title, which in most opinions cemented them as the best team in 2011.

While winning his and the team's 3rd WCG gold, Kubski was once more the main star of the event, ending the year the same way as he started it, as best rated with a 1.33 rating. The difference this time was that his team came out victorious and that he was selected as the MVP of the event.

He was the most consistent player of the event with 10 of 11 ratings above 1.00, was the most dominant player and the best rated in the playoffs (1.25). Most importantly, he once again played well in the final, as best rated of the first map (28:19 score, 1.51 rating, 48% above team) and second best rated overall in the SK match.

The most impressive player of 2011

Despite missing a few events during 2011, the current ESC Gaming team established themselves as the best in the world by most accounts, thanks to winning 4 major titles, three of them by defeating their main rival SK Gaming in the final. The best player in their team and the one who had the most influence on their success was just like during the previous years, Filip "Neo" Kubski.

Kubski was named the Most Valuable Player of 4 major tournaments, three of which were in his team's team title-winning campaigns (Xperia PLAY, e-Stars and WCG), and the other was one of the most competitive events of the year, IEM5 World Championship. In addition to that, he was nominated for MVP on two more occasions, at IEM5 European Championship Finals and SEC, and he also played well enough to be nominated for All-Star lineups at the remaining two events where his team didn't shine, ESWC and DreamHack Winter.

Perhaps the most important fact about Kubski is that he was by far the most consistent player of the year, being rated above 1.00 in 78% of his maps, while he was also the 2nd most dominant in regard to amount of rounds with 3 or more kills (only behind Karl-William "kalle" Haraldsen).

Aside from his shared second best 1.24 rating, it also must be mentioned that he was the 3rd best fragger overall with 0.82 kills per round, the 5th best entry killer (second best among the players in the Top 20 list) and was top rated more often than anyone else (on 28 maps).

His 4 MVP titles are also unmatched by anyone, and when we add to that his impressive performances in many big matches throughout the year, such as the e-Stars final, the SEC final, the playoffs at IEM5 WC, the playoffs at Xperia PLAY and the WCG final, it made him the prime candidate for the number 1 spot on our list and the title of Player of the Year 2011.

not rly, it depends on which kind stats you take more important. according to the ranking - neo's stats were better : ) Stats not only consist of kills/deaths ratio but also consistance and so on. You should remember that the importance of matches is also taken into account. Anyway GTR is gr8 player and had impressive year like neo

the best player of all times
2012-01-20 04:03
NEO(24 years old) : 1st 2011, 7th 2010, <1 2009 GTR(21 years old) : 1st 2009, 2nd 2010, 2nd 2011
2012-01-20 07:41
what about 2008? 2007? 2006? your guy GTR was played mario bros. i hate "people's" like you. so go sleep kebab.
2012-01-20 08:22
What about 2008,2007,2006? GTR didn't even turned his 18 what are u talking about? did you expect NEO vs kid? Stop crying.
2012-01-20 09:49
So now you understand why it all times :O jesus you deny yourself. CS hasn't started in 2009 ;o
2012-01-20 11:15
You can't say ' best player of all times' to 1 person. Because CS players improving themselves every second. in 2003 .... player was the best, in 2007 that one ... GTR 1st 2009 markeloff 1st 2010 NEO 1st 2011 if we have to talk for last 3 years. GTR > NEO. Before 2009 we can't compare them.
2012-01-20 12:10
Yep I can if we look that he along with forest are only players in top10 every year since 2006. And I know that if neo had the occasion to play like Swedes years before he would have been owning ;d
2012-01-20 12:31
so you can compare NEO with 15-16-17 years old kid.
2012-01-20 13:17
Well, if you took into account all GTR's achievments, you should do that with Neo as well. My point is that 'best player of all times' is not the same as 'the best player of past 3 years'. Still don't get it? It's all the same in, for example, football. People are calling Messi the best ever.. hell no! he's not better than Maradona. not yet.
2012-01-20 15:17
Agree ! and I dont like Messi :D he's good but not the best of ever !
2012-01-20 15:59
HeatoN's the best player of all times anywayz kiddo
2012-01-20 16:16
whatever kiddo, I didn't mean to decide who's the best. I don't even care. I wanted the guy to be objective.
2012-01-21 16:22
hahhahaah now neo > spawn,heaton because they dont play? hahaha
2012-01-20 11:16
SpawN and HeatoN were the best in their times.
2012-01-20 12:06
GTR played before but he wasnt that good.
2012-01-20 12:06
i know but he was too young.
2012-01-20 12:08
it really doesn't matter, there are players who turns awesome in early ages. And neo, gtr both play since the same time imo, all of these players do.
2012-01-20 13:45
age doesn't matter? just learn what age gives you then shut up. even your IQ can change in this years. anyway, ok you're making nonsense.
2012-01-20 14:06
CS is 16 years and older, how does it come there are players like oskar who did amazing stuff yearly aged and he is not the only. You don't need 24 to get grown up, your iq is changing whole time of your life, but even 16 old kid can have higher IQ then 24 old man. They are both playing the same amount time, they are both amazingly aknowledged in this game and both of the two belongs the first place, even though neo had been slightly more amazing last year and statistics proves it. And when anyone says he is the best of all times, why do u count just 3 years ffs? CS is 12 years old game dude and neo is one of the most important cs players through out the decade. Respect to you.
2012-01-20 15:19
i'm 17 and i have been playing cs for 8 years. If you're older than someone so you've bigger thinking capacity. i know because i lived it. and we're talking about 3 years. in aim tournaments it'snot about your age because i defeated players who was in top teams in my country last year. There's a big change in this years (15-18) and you're saying that'snot important.
2012-01-20 15:33
Just sayin' that you replied to the post which says neo is the best player of all times. You responded with 3 years comparison, instead of whole time he has been playing. You can't count GTR the best player ever, even though he has been amazing last 3 years, because neo has been amazing since 2k5. And everything in CS is about understanding the game and you are able to learn it through the situations you are in game. ;)
2012-01-20 15:50
i was defending that there's no player who can be best of all times.
2012-01-20 17:03
you haven't done anything with that comment.
2012-01-20 17:15
Yeah, because CS is SUCH A REQUIRING game for our minds that we can hardly keep focused... IQ is just what the tests determine. If you're stupid from the beginning, you're out of luck, nothing will change.
2012-01-20 15:24

2012-01-20 04:17
It's hard to pick anyone else as the best player in CS history. Once upon a time f0rest was also up there, but Neo's incredible staying power sets him ahead of the rest of the field. Nice work on the whole series Tg1ewr23867983iur£$%$&*981s :)
2012-01-20 04:18
Agreed. Not only is he a beastly rifler, but his awp outshines other candidates such as f0rest etc.
2012-01-20 04:39
Nice NEO :D
2012-01-20 04:20
he is simply the best counter strike 1.6 player since 2002 year SIMPLY THE BEST ;) good luck neo in future, i hope see you in #1 place of 2012 year ;)

2012-01-20 04:45
there is no 1 like neo,he is the one,hall of fram player in cs world.
2012-01-20 04:45
Both Neo and GTR have quite similar stats. Gtr might be better in terms of frags but neo has the most MotMs and more MVPs. Also the fact that he is simply the more complete all round player must've contributed to him winning this award. For all those who have called this evaluation a farce, open your eyes. GTR is rightly number 2 or probably joint no1 but neo deserved it. Stop cribbing and love fragging. Peace.
2012-01-20 04:45
P.S: please also note that the common tournaments they both played in, there was not much to choose from and Neo had more MVPs. "the current ESC Gaming team established themselves as the best in the world by most accounts, thanks to winning 4 major titles, three of them by defeating their main rival SK Gaming in the final" This shows that when it mattered he stepped up more than GTR.
2012-01-20 05:02
+1 bloody correct !
2012-01-20 07:23
nice 1 arun!!!!!!
2012-01-20 14:23
GTR gets his rating up against low teams...... but NEO steps it up in the final.... if the influence of the frags were taken into account, GTR would be 5th to be honest....
2012-01-20 05:14
Which low teams?
2012-01-20 06:25
low ranked teams and low teams mean same thing

Finally someone who is able to use his head. I guess you said it all perfectly. While I'm not Neo fan or sth, there are many players that I'd like more than him, there should be no doubt that he deserved this position. Gtr is an amazing player, no doubt about that, probably the best fragger in terms of numbers that is out there, but Neo is the most complete player that has probably ever played this game, and he is almost always able to shine the most when his team needs him. And kids just cry 'why gtr is second, wtf, neo bad, wohoo', why don't you just think like gtr himself does? He said in the interview that the next second position motivates him even more to become a better player, which is an attitude that every fan of him should have.
2012-01-20 10:09
every inch a king

even thought there is 1 rank seperating neo and GTR...i think that neo is about 10x better than GTR honestly... GTR just kills against low teams........now i am not saying lions is a low team but thats usually how he gets his rating up......HE didnt make any contribution in any final that i can remember of..... NEO is better aimer and clutcher then GTR...he also awps....and has got a brain...thats why he always wins those 1vx rounds.... GTR is just pure aim.....and lol @ thinking that hes the best.....

GTR is a fantastic player. But we must all agree that NEO is one of the best players of the world since 2005... New talents come and go, old talents loose their touch all the time. Somehow NEO keep playing amazingly year after year. I really think he is THE best player in CS history. Even above potti, heaton, element and etc. NEO is just amazing in all aspects of the game. He's a great fragger, great clutcher, awper, always shines in big games against good teams. He even seems humble in his interviews You can argue that GTR has a better aim ( I don't think so ) but no other player is as complete as he is. Very deserved 1st place
2012-01-20 07:44

shared 2nd best rating (1.24), most consistent player (78% of maps rated above 1.00), 3rd best fragger (0.82 KPR), 2nd most dominant, most times top rated (28 maps), 5th best entry killer Perhaps the most important fact about Kubski is that he was by far the most consistent player of the year, being rated above 1.00 in 78% of his maps, while he was also the 2nd most dominant in regard to amount of rounds with 3 or more kills (only behind Karl-William "kalle" Haraldsen). Aside from his shared second best 1.24 rating, it also must be mentioned that he was the 3rd best fragger overall with 0.82 kills per round, the 5th best entry killer (second best among the players in the Top 20 list) and was top rated more often than anyone else (on 28 maps).

2012-01-20 09:09
Only one stat better than GTR and MVPs come from polish guys who vote him no matter how he play :D Not very fair if you ask me :DDD
2012-01-20 09:10
Like MVPs haven't been nominated and voted by experts ;x
2012-01-20 13:22
Voted by public too,that was my point. And here are tons of polish guys who always vote Neo, even if for example GTR would have been great. Even stats show GTR was better. And different people can have different opinions =)
2012-01-20 13:51
open your eyes and don't bother us with those stupid post ;o When You accusing Polish guys or hltv.org of such thing then tell us please, on which MVP title he hasn't deserved ? And surely stats don't show GTR is better. If you have ever had statistics in your school you would have known which numbers are objective and which are NOT. For me and the world "best fragger" and "most kills" are very subjective. But best AK surely is a great achievement. On the other hand Neo's MVPs and best consistency tells us that his other ratings are much more objective.
2012-01-20 14:47
Like I said,you have your opinion and I have mine ;-) And I havent said that Neo didnt deserved those MVP-titles.
2012-01-20 16:44
Yes you did.
2012-01-20 17:18
SK didn't attend on a tournament with strongest team line-up this year, so those stats are not really objective.

Well done Tgwri1s. Deserved first place, one shouldn't doubt about that. And people saying that Gtr is a bad player, or he just frags well against lesser teams, or saying that Neo is bad, nanana, he has worse teammates, just have no clue about what they are talking about. Neo first, Gtr second, that's how it should be and that's how it is.
2012-01-20 10:15

I'm not hater just it was funny when a lot of swedes were arguing that gtr will be top1 and there is no other option. To the end i didn;t know who will be first
2012-01-20 12:19
This is absurd! I was certain I would be first :(

well deserved NEO!
2012-01-20 11:05
Well deserved for sure, you can't argue with this he truly was the best player. His consistency just says it all, he played excellent in almost every tournament they attended and he won the M.V.P title in 4 tournaments and was the most dominant player this year. I really hope he can keep his shape because he's one of the best to ever play the game and he has the capacity to be the best to ever play the game if he keeps this up in the years he keeps playing, maybe he even is the best to ever play the game, who knows? I can see ESC win many titles this year like they did in 2011 if the players keep their form from 2011. Pasha excelled to the player we all know he can be, TaZ was a madfragger and NEO is just simply the best. Like I said, he deserved it and people can argue all the want but the truth hurts sometimes so fanboys, don't even comment this.

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) >>>>>>>> 4x MVP, shared 2nd best rating (1.24), most consistent player (78% of maps rated above 1.00), 3rd best fragger (0.82 KPR), 2nd most dominant, most times top rated (28 maps), 5th best entry killer
2012-01-20 12:15
exactly, this shouldn't even be a discussion 4x MVP? what the fuck does that prove? that he's got a lot of fan boys, i guess the only actually impressive achievement on neo's list is most consistent player, and tbh best fragger and most kills should be worth far more than that
2012-01-20 13:14
1st of all he was choosen by experts dude :) b4 u say anything go to the mvp nomination sites and check it . Most kills should be worth far more than consistent ? hater always gonna hate. PS :he got a lot of fanboys , what the fuck does that prove ? that he`s da king :)
2012-01-20 13:39

2012-01-20 14:43
cg neo but for gtr was better this year :)
2012-01-20 14:44
Imo GTR is the biggest stats player, he plays for stats not for his team. I watched him many times during last year and if you noticed, he often stays last alive. When it comes to retake a bombside, he always waits for his mates to move first and then he enters when he knows where are opponents. Its sad for his fans but its true. For sure gtr is great player but he should play for team not for stats. There is more better players then GTR in top20, he is Top2 becouse of stats only. Forest is way better, Markeloff is way better.
2012-01-20 15:05
but this is ranking is about invidual skills:) who cares about dat hes staying last alive etc.:)
2012-01-20 15:21
it actually was based on performance in all aspects not just skill he was not someone i would want in a 1vx situation
2012-01-20 19:09
Yeah, he even commented on that yesterday when he did an interview. Kinda sad that he actually cares so much about it. A real star player would have atleast said that he dosen't care and is glad as long as they win with the team.

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
2012-01-21 00:13

Neo was absolutley a monster last year and deserves the nr one spot. But what I don't agree on with so many comments is that he is by far the best player ever, ppl seem to forget privious years like when Neo wasn't the most stable player. I do agree on that he is though one of the best but not the best ever. That title he shares with f0rest imo who have had more stable years all over. Yeah, I might be a blind fanboy here but thats how I see things.

2012-01-20 15:49
you're blind or just haven't been watching cs whole year
2012-01-20 15:57
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
2012-01-21 00:12
IMO taz played better than NEO this year.. NEO was unseen in a lot of games. He played no where near what he did in 09/10, pretty sure his rating dropped. Get Right continued to improve all year, always getting better. But hey im a mutual person here? i go for iMmunity.. So this fight is irrelevant as you will always be on your knees for Polish guys. (PS - Not saying NEO is a terrible/bad player probably the best in the year atm, just think they should'nt put reputation involved and it was'nt only NEO also with trace.)

2012-01-20 18:45
Neo is one of the best players thru history, but 2011 GT performed much better imo, i really though GT would be #1. 2011 and 2009 GT > Neo. All other years Neo have performed better.
2012-01-20 18:20
joking, right?
2012-01-20 19:15
yea,also 2009 was the year where ESC switched orgs like crazy so this year was shit for them,and ya i keep asking but no gtr fan seems able to respond,if GTR is so good why he cant bring his A game and help SK to defeat ESC in any final? GTR is good at killing against tier2 teams,but in finals the only one who shines is f0rest and delpan

For all who thinks gtr was better this year. 5 - f0rest 6 -TAZ 9 -delpan 14 - face 18 - Pasha anyway ESC was still better this year SK (TOP:5,9,14) ESC (TOP:6,18) why gtr should be higher then neo? I think gtr was better fragger, but neo works in more important situations.

@Tgwri1s Could you summarize the stats of 2011 in an extra article? I don't know, how much work that will be, but it would be really awesome to see the top players in each category at a look. Such as Top10: Rating, Fragger/Hardest to Kill, Rifler, AWP, Pistol-Round, Entry Fragger, Clutcher, Most consistent/dominant, Carrying their team, Best on dust2/inferno/nuke/train/tuscan I really appreciate your work, you did a great job in the last couple of weeks and you derserve a little rest, but I want you to give it a thought. PS: Congratulations Neo, deserved MVP title
