Over the last two decades, the CSGO scene has been blessed with some unbelievable talents that have helped to grow the CSGO and esports world as a whole. Now, CSGO sees over 1,000,000 daily players, but who is considered the CSGOAT?
Due to the very nature of the game, deciding on the best CSGO player of all time is no easy task. Although armed with stats, facts, and player accolades, we have no doubt that the gaming community’s opinion on our selections will be divided.
Oleksandr Kostyliev is a 25-year old AWPer, who has made a name for himself for being a great leader and decisive under pressure. His playing style is considered aggressive and swift, making him incredibly difficult to play against.
S1mple has been active since 2013, and was crowned the best CSGO player in 2018 and 2021. He holds the record for the most MVP titles (21), has won a major and an Intel Grand Slam, alongside numerous S-tier tournaments. The already-accomplished Natus Vincere leader, shows no signs of stopping heading in to 2023 and is deserving of his place amongst the Best CSGO players of all time.
We couldn’t have a discussion about the best CSGO player of all time without mentioning Nicolai ‘dev1ce’ Reedtz. The achievements speak for themselves: 19 MVPs, 4 major titles, 8 appearances in the top 2 players of the year, and a K/D ratio of 1.25.
After rejoining Astralis ahead of the 2023 season, fans will be hoping that dev1ce can reignite the fire that once led Astralis to the #1 spot. In fairness, if anyone can do it, then your money would be on the most honored man in CSGO history.
It’s difficult to look beyond Get_Right as anything but the GOAT. Back when CSGO was fresh, Get_Right was working on his craft and helping to propel CSGO into the limelight.
His career spanned an impressive 14 years, managing to pick up accolade after accolade along the way. The years 2013 and 2014 saw Get_Right ranked as world number one, winning 10 MVP titles throughout the years. His time with Ninjas in Pyjamas (NIP) was particularly impressive, securing one major tournament and making five finals. Of course, Get_Right and NIP went on an 87-game winning streak throughout this period, too - a record that is still etched in the history books to this day.
So, there you have it - Get_Right sits atop the leaderboard as the best CSGO player of all time. Of course, a new season is just around the corner, so who knows what current talents or potential GOATs are yet to bless the scene.
