ZywOo appeared in Forbes' 30 under 30
The authoritative Forbes magazine published a fresh list of the top 30 most successful representatives of Europe under 30 years in the video games and sports industry. 20-year-old professional CS:GO player Mathieu "ZywOo" Herbaut is Among them.
Nicknamed "The Chosen One" because he was born the day of Counter-Strike's commercial release, Mathieu "ZywOo" Herbaut set a record for most MVP awards in a player's first competitive year (2019). In addition to landing No. 1 on the HLTV World Ranking last year, Herbaut signed a five-year extension with Team Vitality, one of the longest in esports history.
In addition to the CS:GO star, Team Secret player Lasse "MATUMBAMAN" Urpalainen (Dota 2) and Cloud9 League of Legends midlaner Luka "Perkz" Perkovic were included in Forbes' ranking.
Recall that last year a similar rating from Forbes included Nikolai "device" Reedtz (Astralis) and Olof "olofmeister" Kajbjer (FaZe), and the Russian and Ukrainian versions included NAVI players Kirill "Boombl4" Mikhailov and Alexander "s1mple" Kostylyev respectively.
