CS:GO has remained one of the top games throughout 2019. The game even became the most-played game on Steam in October. Fans got to see various tournaments in the said year, and each player gave his best. Valve also made some big changes to their game throughout the year. Today, we are going to talk about some of the best CS:GO players of 2019.
Aleksandr “s1mple” Kostyliev
Natus Vincere, popularly known as Na’Vi, had some ups and downs during 2019. However, one of their players, Aleksandr “s1mple” Kostyliev left everyone surprised with his performance. The latter performed the same as he performed in 2018, and he managed to win the hearts of his fans again. He has ended the year with an HLTV rating of 2.0. However, s1mple failed to become the number 1 player this year because he couldn’t win as many MVP medals as he did last year. For those who don’t know, this very player won six MVP medals in 2018. In any case, s1mple will surely show amazing results in 2020.
Vincent “Brehze” Cayonte
Vincent “Brehze” Cayonte from Evil Geniuses proved to be a worthy player in 2019. Winning the MVP medal in ESL One New York, he managed to become one of the best players of the year due to his amazing performance. He has remained one of the most consistent players of his current team, and his hard work helped EG with winning ESL One New York. For those who don’t know, this was the first big LAN tournament for EG.
Jonathan “EliGE” Jablonowski
Jonathan “EliGE” Jablonowski of Team Liquid is yet another player who deserves to be in the list of best CS:GO players of 2019. Although he has remained a really good player, his performance in past years was rough. He missed some championships during his time with Team Liquid, something which fans didn’t like at all. However, this changed in 2019 as EliGE managed to become one of their best players. He made the best use of the Krieg and AUG to get many eliminations.
Nicolai “device” Reedtz
Any list of best CS:GO players would be incomplete without mentioning Nicolai “device” Reedtz. The Astralis player has remained one of the top players over the past four years, and he has been widely regarded as one of the best AWPers in the game’s history. The latter is known for using smart strategies during his game play, and he helped his team secure many victories in 2019. In addition to this, he received MVP medals in BLAST Pro Series Sao Paulo, StarLadder Berlin Major, and ECS season eight.
Mathieu “Zywoo” Herbaut
Mathieu “Zywoo” Herbaut was easily the best CS:GO player of 2019. Most people will be surprised to hear this considering he started playing professionally last year. However, without this player, Vitality wouldn’t had won some big matches. Zywoo won the MVP medals at cs_summit four, ECS season seven, DreamHack Masters Malmo, and ESL One Cologne. Now that the latter has proved his worth in 2019, we can expect him to show even better results in 2020.
These were some of the best CS:GO players of 2019. We are now looking forward to see who will manage to become the best in 2020.
