Why ZywOo Is Not As Flashy As s1mple?



CS:GO is a game where you simply eliminate the enemies to win a round, which will lead you to win the game. There are lots of ways to eliminate your opponent, and there are tons of different playstyles to do so.

You can play as a lurker to surprise your enemies such as the legendary Swedish player Christopher “GeT_RiGhT” Alesund, and you can flick your enemies with AWP such as Kenny “kennyS” Schrub.

However, there are tremendous differences between the good CS:GO players who put so many hours into the game and the two of the best players in the world, Mathieu “ZywOo” Herbaut and Oleksandr “s1mple” Kostyliev.

Even though ZywOo is picked as the best player in the world for the past two years by, and we should mention that the first one was in his rookie year, he doesn’t get as much as credit that s1mple gets.

The Differences Between ZywOo And s1mple

Both of these players are arguably the best players that the Counter-Strike scene has ever seen, even in 1.6 years. But there are plenty of differences between ZywOo and s1mple in terms of the playstyle.

If you watch s1mple play on the server, you could feel like s1mple can do whatever he wants and nobody could stand a chance against him. He can flick around the map, peek at the angle he wants, and wins the duels he shouldn’t with his aggressive playstyle.

s1mple is surprising his enemies with unexpected angles and peeks. On the other hand, ZywOo is much like a brainiac in the game. As well as the capability of flicking around, he can also read the opponents pretty well.

The French superstar has a perfect crosshair placement and positioning. And knowing what your enemy will do in the next five seconds gives ZywOo a huge amount of advantage. But due to his knowledge of the game, he doesn’t need to flick or do something crazy to kill the enemies. He can just left-click to kill the opponent.

ZywOo’s individual performance wasn’t enough for Vitality to secure any tournaments in 2021.

Although ZywOo has also insane moments that almost nobody could manage to pull off, his playstyle around his team won them tournaments as well as making him the best player in the world two years in a row.

Because of the differences in the playstyles, he has a low amount of insane clips compared to s1mple. Also, it is really important to point out that s1mple has been carrying the whole Natus Vincere alongside for the past few years. Therefore, it is so normal to see him on the highlight more often.

In 2021, Team Vitality started to underperform in the tournaments and ZywOo’s insane performance wasn’t enough for them to victory. Regardless of the fact that Vitality couldn’t perform as a team, ZywOo still contains a 1.29 rating for the past six months, which is the same rating that he had last year.

On the other side of the coin, s1mple and Natus Vincere have been performing extraordinary this year, and they even won BLAST Premier: Global Final 2020 and DreamHack Masters Spring 2021. Also, s1mple has a 1.34 rating from the start of this year.
