The outgoing year was very busy for the professional CS: GO scene. Summing up the year, Cybersport.ru assembled two symbolic teams. The first included only players from the CIS, and the second from all the rest of the world. The main selection criterion was, of course, personal statistics, but at the same time, we took into account the roles of e-sportsmen, as well as the overall results of the teams and the level of their opponents.
Symbolic team of the world
Nikolay device Ridtz
Nikolay device Ridtz got into this rating as the best player in statistics of the strongest team in 2019. Ridtz has been stable for several years – over the past four years he was one of the five strongest cybersportsmen in CS: GO according to HLTV.org, and in 2018 he lost only Alexander s1mple Kostylev.
Winrate 2019 Astralis amounted to 74%, with 78% of the cards sniper Danish team completed with a rating of more than one. At the end of the year, he will again be one of the contenders for the title of best player, and only one person can prevent him, who also ended up in the world team.
Mathieu ZywOo Erbo
Two main snipers in our teams got to our world team, but we just could not choose one. But also Mathieu ZywOo Erbo, and the device has pretty good statistics with the AK-47 and SG 556, so if necessary, both will probably be able to pick up assault rifles. But on the cards, where two snipers work well, this team will be simply invincible.
Speaking directly about ZywOo, one thing can be said for sure: his contribution to success Team vitality it doesn’t even make sense to compare with the contribution of his teammates. In 2019, the Frenchman received five MVP awards – more than anyone else. Moreover, twice (on ESL One Cologne 2019 and DreamHack Masters Malmö 2019) Vitality lost in the finals, but HLTV.org simply didn’t have any options to award the title of the most valuable player to the winner of the tournament.
Jonathan EliGE Jablonowski
Not a single Entry Fragment can boast the same high rating as Jonathan EliGE Jablonowski. The American is literally born for this role – his aggressive style just helps to confidently go to the point and kill his opponent faster than he has time to understand what happened. He also has the best statistics in his team for 2019, while playing on an unsuitable role for this.
Only EliGE and the captain Nick nitr0 cannell advocate Team liquid since 2015. This is an indicator of great confidence in the player from the club management. A few years later, it finally bore fruit at a distance, and Jablonowski was able to fully reveal its potential.
Robin Ropz Kohl
Just a couple of years ago, many explained the success Robina Ropz Kohl on fpl cheats. Then, another 16-year-old teenager even had to go to the FACEIT office to prove his honesty. Now he is the key link mousesports, without which this team is difficult to imagine among the top teams in the world. At the end of 2019, mouz won three tournaments in a row and reached the final at the Epicenter, where she was unable to win due to the unreal form of ZywOo. But even there, Kol played all three cards as a plus.
The outgoing year was the very period when ropz was able to realize his talent into results. And though the bookies do not consider him to be in the top 5 contenders for the title of the best player in the world, we still took him to our symbolic team.
Lucas gla1ve Rossander
The leader of Astralis is not distinguished by any statistical indicators, it is rarely noted in the highlight selections and during his entire career he received only one MVP medal. But exactly Lucas gla1ve Rossander leads the most successful team of the last two years, and therefore we had no alternatives for the role of captain in our world team.
Many speak of Astralis as an example of the most professional approach on the CS: GO stage. The Danes are rarely lost in the most important matches, they sort out the rounds of even the most formidable opponent and are ready to play any card. And all this would not have been possible without a magnificent leader, of whom, of course, is Rossander.
Symbolic team of the CIS
Alexander s1mple Kostylev
The best player of 2018 according to HLTV.org this time will have enough competitors in the fight for first place in the ranking. But if we are talking about the CIS, then s1mple is beyond competition – without it, it is simply impossible to imagine the regional team. Kostylev is an e-sportsman with a unique style, which is on the verge of verified actions and arrogant attacks.
Individual mastery of s1mple is confirmed by statistics. Even though Natus vincere Do not participate in the TIR-2 tournaments and Kostylev’s opponents are the best players in the world, in all respects he is ahead of any other esports player from the CIS.
Denis electronic Sharipov
Though Denis electronic Sharipov and lags behind s1mple in statistics for 2019, but its contribution to the success of Natus Vincere is still difficult to overestimate. Sharipov paired with Kostylev are the main striking force of the strongest team in the CIS. Its average rating of 1.21 and 84.6 average damage per round is also shown in the fight against the strongest squad members, so there is no doubt about the objectivity of these statistics.
Eugene FL1T Lebedev
Eugene FL1T Lebedev He began to actively perform on the professional stage just a year ago, and on December 21 he was only 19 years old. His whole career is yet to come, but already at this stage his team forZe in a short time entered the top 15 compositions of the world. Naturally, this is not only his merit, but he has the highest rating among oporniks and supportive role players in the CIS. The FL1T team can always be sure that he will do everything to take the next clutch in a difficult situation or make it difficult for the opponent to reach the point, even if he defends it alone.
Jamie Jame Ali
He also claimed a sniper position in the CIS symbolic team Bogdan xsepower Chernikov. However, each roster needs a captain, and after leaving Danila Zeus Teslenko the best results of the year for this role were shown precisely by the sniper and leader Virtus.pro. Under his leadership, the team did the unthinkable – reached the final of the major, when few people believed in it.
As for the sniper skills directly, here Jamie Jame Ali showed itself better than xsepower in 2019 – it showed the same statistics on the ratio of killings and deaths as s1mple, while the rating was only 0.04 behind. In part, such indicators are explained by the extremely cautious style of Jami. But his timely saves often allowed the team to win force-buys, since it is the presence of a sniper rifle that is a serious help for winning an incomplete purchase.
Alexey Qikert Golubev
If we take the Jame team, then without Alexey Qikert Golubev we just can not do. The second player in statistics in Virtus.pro is not only capable of closing any position if necessary, but also assuming leadership of the team if Jame has to concentrate on the sniper game. And even if the team does not succeed, as it was at EPICENTER 2019, Qikert still makes its frags and remains stable, as its statistics prove.
Golubev said that he was called in Natus Vincere when they were looking for a replacement John Edward Sukharev. It is not known how his fate and future would have developed Avangar and Virtus.pro if he agreed. But while they and Jame continue to perform together, we simply do not have the right to separate them, especially defining leading roles in the CIS team.
