NiKo, S1mple, FalleN Rank All Major Winning CS:GO Teams

NAVI winning the PGL Major Stockholm 2021 has sparked a lot of discussion about whether the Ukrainian e-sports organization has done enough to really set their era. Along with this, the community also started comparing them to Astralis along with previous CS:GO Major winners.

This is how some players like Nikola “Niko” Kovač, Oleksandr “s1mple” Kostyliev and Gabriel “Fall” Toledo, ranking all previous Major winners excluding NAVI. They also provide their reasoning behind some of their ratings. Up ahead is the full level list shared by players in an interview with BLAST Premier.

A total of 12 CS:GO Major winners were reviewed and accordingly ranked by star players. Two of these teams faced off against each other in the final of the 2021 Stockholm Professional Championship that just ended. The twelve Pro team winners along with their lineups at that time were as follows,

  1. Fnatic – 2013

    JW, flusha, schneider, Devilwalk, pronax

  2. – 2014

    TaZ, NEO, pashaBiceps, Snax, byali

  3. Ninjas in Pajamas – 2014

  12. Astralis – 2018

    device, Dupreeh, Xyp9x, gla1ve, Magisk

All three players NiKo, s1mple, FalleN unanimously awarded the Astralis – 2018 title with the highest achievement. This is probably the easiest decision to make probably because they are the first CS:GO team to achieve 3 championships, winning the StarLadder Berlin Major 2019, IEM Katowice Major 2019 and FACEIT Major: London 2018.

Here is the full level list of all three players. While s1mple and NiKo chose to distribute Major winners across all ranks from top to bottom, FalleN respectfully placed them all in the top four, leaving the bottom three tiers completely empty.

This is certainly a controversial topic, and each user will have their own versions of the level list based on personal opinions, preferences, and biases. This is how these three players feel, so if you had to choose among these three level lists, which would you choose? | NiKo, S1mple, FalleN Rank All Major Winning CS:GO Teams
