ZywOo tops the best player list of 2020 byb HLTV.org

Authoritative Counter-Strike portal HLTV.org has published a full list of the top 20 players for 2020. The top 20 eSports athletes in the CS:GO discipline were presented one each day during January, starting from the bottom.

Topping the list was Vitality sharpshooter Mathieu "ZywOo" Herbaut, who was named Most Valuable Player at six tournaments in 2020, the best result of any MVP holder. The 20-year-old Frenchman received the most prestigious individual award for his performances at BLAST Premier Spring 2020 Finals, cs_summit 6, ESL One Cologne 2020, DreamHack Open Fall 2020, IEM Beijing 2020 and BLAST Premier Fall 2020 Finals.

In second place was Alexander "s1mple" Kostylyev of NAVI. The stellar Ukrainian, who for the second year in a row finds himself one step away from the top 1, received only two MVP medals, besting him at IEM Katowice 2020 and ESL Pro League S12. It is noteworthy that HLTV.org did not take into account the results of RMR tournaments for CIS, explaining this decision by the low level of participants in the regional competition.
