Top 10 CS:GO LAN players of 2018 so far

1
We take a look at the Top 10 CS:GO players to have played on LAN in 2018.
The year is only young, yet we have had a number of premium LAN events so far, including the Eleague Major and qualifiers, cs_summit2, IEM Katowice and StarSeries i-League Season 4, and we wanted to take a look at which players have been the hottest performing so far!

To be included in the top 10, players have to have participated in 25 or more maps at LAN events in 2018. Stats are taken from HLTV.org

Bottom 5

These are the players who didn't quite make it to the Top 5, but they sure came close! As the year progresses will these players be able to move up and claim one of the top 5 spots as their own? Only time will tell.

10th. Miikka "suNny" Kemppi - Mousesports
AgeMapsK/D DiffK/D RatioRating
2334+981.161.17

9th. Tomáš "oskar" Šťastný - Mousesports
AgeMapsK/D DiffK/D RatioRating
2634+1331.231.18

8th. Robin "flusha" Rönnquist - Fnatic
AgeMapsK/D DiffK/D RatioRating
2428+751.151.19

7th. Timothy "autimatic" Ta - Cloud9

Top 5

With those who are looking to break into the top 5 out of the way, we turn our attention to those at the top.

5. Ismailcan "XANTARES" Dörtkardeş - Space Soldiers


AgeMapsK/D DiffK/D RatioRating
2228+501.091.21
Dörtkardeş has the lowest Kill to Death ratio out of anyone inside the top 10, however he does have the highest headshot percentage, with over half of his kills (55.2%) resulting from headshots.

4. Keith "NAF" Markovic - Team Liquid


AgeMapsK/D DiffK/D RatioRating
2052+1761.191.22
Markovic has the most maps played compared to anyone within the top 20, and as such also has the most kills, with 1079 overall. He only joined his current team, Team Liquid, in February, can more time with the lineup help him climb even higher?

3. Nikola "NiKo" Kovač - Faze Clan


AgeMapsK/D DiffK/D RatioRating
2144+1831.251.24
Always in contention to be considered the world's best player, Kovač has 5 aces on LAN in 2018, which is more than anyone else. Almost half of his kills (53%) come from headshots.

2. Freddy "KRiMZ" Johansson - Fnatic


AgeMapsK/D DiffK/D RatioRating
2328+1581.331.26
Johansson is one of the most consistent players in the game, and that shows as he takes the second spot on the top 10. He also has the third highest K/D ratio, just behind S1mple and coldzera.

1. Oleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev - Natus Vincere


AgeMapsK/D DiffK/D RatioRating
2038+2461.431.33
Kostyliev has long been regarded as one of the most mechanically skilled players in the Counter-Strike scene, so it won't be a huge surprise to many to see him sitting at the top. His ability to consistently perform is even more impressive when you take into consideration the performances of the players around him, with Na'Vi struggling as of late, with the rest of his team sitting on much lower ratings.


How will the year pan out? We will see the same players solidify their spots in the Top 10 or will there be new challengers attempting to claim their position as their own?
