With the best in the world back after the Berlin Major, we take a look at which CS:GO players should make your roster for the first round of ESL One New York.
Brehze is one of the most expensive players in a roster that includes the best CS:GO players in the world. There’s something about Brehze’s form that makes him an attractive proposition. He has 0.77 kills per round (15605 kills in 20165 rounds). More than half of those kills have been headshots, at 52%. NRG have a tricky opponent in Faze Clan, which means Brehze will have to step up from the outset.
With Liquid plausibly facing an easy opener, Twistzz might not be a bad asset to have in this roster. He has a K/D ratio of 1.21 (0.76 kills to 0.62 deaths per round). With a headshots efficiency of over 60%, he is a potent offensive weapon for any team. He keeps his deaths quite low for such an aggressive player too. He also has 0.12 assists per round.
Lots of experience is a major selling point for Allu. Aged 27, he has racked up in excess of 26,000 kills (26,773) in over 35,000 rounds. He has played 1371 maps. He inflicts damage of 75.6 per round in the last few years. He is easily the most important player in ENCE. From a picklebet perspective, his presence is deemed worthy because of his price. He averages 259.39 points in 59 matches.
Magisk has an impressive resume. Apart from playing in one of the strongest CS:GO teams in the world, he has won a Major three times and has also been awarded the Most Valuable Player in a Major tournament. You could potentially go seamlessly between Device, Dupreeh and Magisk in this Astralis team. But with price being an important factor, Magisk could be your go-to option.
In 2014 and 2015, KennyS was the sixth-best CS:GO player in the world. In 2017, he slipped one rank, to No. 7. That’s how consistent KennyS has been in this esport. Apart from his affordable salary tag, there’s plenty of value in his selection. He averages 236 picklebet fantasy points per match in 85 matches. In over 40,000 rounds, he has 31,392 kills, giving him an impressive kills per round of 0.77.
Total cost of the above five players = 99,640
