Best CS:GO players in 2019-2020
2020 is going to be a breakout year for the Counter-Strike professional scene, hence why we’re revamping our top 5 list of the best CSGO players in 2019 – 2020.
Given the fact that no events have been played just yet, we’ll be listen to our guts and provide you with the players that have a legit chance to win the best CSGO player award in 2020.
1. Mathieu “ZywOo” Herbaut
After being rated as the best CSGO player of 2019 by HLTV, Mathieu will want to propel Vitality towards more victories.
ZywOo definitely deserves a spot on the list of the top 5 CSGO players in 2020 as he really is at the top of the foodchain.
When it comes to proficiency, this French prodigy can literally kill you with everything. For such a young player, he has an insane game sense and his raw aim is off the charts.
It will be interesting to see if ZywOo will be able to consistently top the scoreboard at the ESL One Rio Major since all of the best CSGO players will be competing here.
2. Aleksandr “s1mple” Kostyliev
There is no denying that s1mple is a huge talent and definitely one of the best CSGO players. Even though Aleksandr had an excellent 2019, he fell short to ZywOo, at least by HLTV rankings. We believe that s1mple will be on a mission in 2020 and this is why we wanted to include him in the top 5 CSGO players in 2020.
You simply cannot argue with his deadly aim and aggressive playstyle. Even though his movements are transparent there still won’t be much you could do about it. If s1mple gets rolling, there is no stopping him.
However, Natus Vincere will have to step up their game in 2020. This may very well be their last stand. If something does not drastically change, s1mple could definitely consider moving back to North America.
3. Nicolai “device” Reedtz
When it comes to team play, device is your guy. Nicolai is a very mechanically gifted player, but he gets a lot of frags by using his brain. You will barely ever see device re-peak the same angle and his “shoot and fall back” method is working for Astralis.
We think that Astralis is by far the top CSGO team ever, but they certainly wouldn’t be as good if device was not wielding the AWP. He is simply reliable and this is why we included him in our top list of the best 5 CSGO players in 2020.
4. Robin “ropz” Kool
A star in the making; that is all we can say about ropz.
Even though he ranked as the 10th best player in 2019, 2020 is definitely going to be much brighter for Robin, as he gained an enormous amount of experience since mousesports to part in numerous events last year.
It seems that the German-based CSGO roster has finally found a perfect fit with karrigan leading the young guns. It will be very interesting to see if ropz can step up and carry the team alongside woxic and frozen.
The reason why we’ve decided to include Robin in our top list of the best CSGO players of 2020 is because of his raw aim. If you ever watched this guy play, you’ll know what we’re talking about.
5. Ludvig “Brollan” Brolin
We simply cannot talk about the top 5 CSGO players without mentioning this Swedish up and coming prospect. Brollan has had an excellent year as he was voted amongst the best CSGO players in 2019.
Just like ropz, Brollan is on another level when compared to other top tier players.
His weapon of choice is the SG553 or so-called Krieg and when you see him wielding this weapon, you can expect headshots.
Ludvig started out very inexperienced as fnatic was his first big roster. But, we’ve definitely saw him make headway as 2019 progressed.
Even though his game sense and overall experience are not at the highest level, we still believe that he will continue to improve. Once you add his insane aim to that equation, you’ll get one of the top CSGO players.
Previously Ranked Top CSGO Players in 2019
There were quite a few star players in 2019, but not all of them put up insane numbers such as the 5 we mentioned below. In this piece, you will be able to find the best CSGO players in 2019.
1. Aleksandr ‘s1mple’ Kostyliev
As you could have probably guessed, s1mple is one the best CS:GO players in 2019. He has been on a terror throughout this year, and his statistics are insane. Even though his team, Natus Vincere, was only able to win one tournament this year, this did not stop s1mple from dominating everyone.
In 2019, s1mple topped the charts with AWP kills(565) and AK-47 kills(331). Fun fact, s1mple was able to knife three of his opponents this year. Below you will be able to find some of the statistics for the best CSGO player ever.
- Rating 2.0: 1.35
- Total Kills: 1282
- K/D Ratio: 1.51
- Damage Per Round: 88.1
2. Mathieu ‘ZywOo’ Herbaut
ZywOo has recently turned 18, and he already found his footing in the professional CS:GO scene. At the moment, ZywOo is rated as the second-best player in 2019, and I believe that he will keep improving. Unlike s1mple, ZywOo participated in 11 different tournaments in 2019 and he had a positive K/D ratio in each of these events. Furthermore, Vitality was able to win three of those tournaments.
When it comes to weapons, ZywOo has found his rhythm with AWP(854 kills), AK-47(408 kills), and AUG(167 kills). Once again we are presenting you with some incredible stats surrounding the French prodigy.
- Rating 2.0: 1.34
- Total Kills: 2210
- K/D Ratio: 1.43
- Damage Per Round: 87.6
3. Ali ‘Jame’ Djami
Another youngster that found his way on our top 5 list. Jame has been dominating basically everyone in 2019, and it is sad that he is not surrounded by better teammates. This puts Russian AWPer in the third-place on our list.
Jame played on 14 different CS:GO tournaments in 2019, and these are his stats for this year.
- Rating 2.0: 1.31
- Total Kills: 2315
- K/D Ratio: 1.56
- Damage Per Round: 80.1
4. Vinicius ‘vsm’ Moreira
Even though this player is nowhere near a tier 1 team, statistics say that he is the 4th best CS:GO player in 2019. Vsm is 19 years old and at the moment, he is playing for DETONA.
In 2019, vsm participated in 19 tournaments with DETONA and in 17 of those, he had a positive K/D ratio. However, most of those tournaments were qualifiers, hence why some of the stats are unreal.
- Rating 2.0: 1.28
- Total Kills: 1543
- K/D Ratio: 1.26
- Damage Per Round: 88.7
5. Tyson ‘TenZ’ Ngo
The last CS:GO player on our list is still a minor. At the moment, TenZ is only 17 years old and he is a member of Bad News Bears. Even though he did not play in many tournaments, he still put in an excellent performance in some of those events.
Canadian talent dominated everyone in the ESEA MDL Season 30 North American and below you will be able to find some of his best statistics in 2019.
- Rating 2.0: 1.27
- Total Kills: 1102
- K/D Ratio: 1.27
- Damage Per Round: 89.5
