Here comes the stage in the world of Counter-Strike:Global Offensive, when there is a long break between major tier-1 tournaments. The most significant for pro-players and the audience now is the announcement of the top 20 from the portal HLTV.org.
Recall that this award has been considered the most important and prestigious in CS:GO for more than ten years. Among the representatives of the CIS region, only Egor markeloff Markelov and Alexander s1mple Kostyliev were at the top of the rating once.
The results for 2021 (the most successful year in the history of the CIS) promises us the complete dominance of representatives of the CIS teams in the top 20. Fortunately, it so happened that they all got into the top ten, leaving behind the famous device, blameF, ropz, etc.
No. 10 of the HLTV 2021 - Dzhami Jame Ali
The team captain is the first of the delegation of CIS players to land on the honorable tenth place Virtus.pro Jame. The Russian is among the unique IGLS who add the title of the main sniper to the leader's duties.
The presence of Dzhami in the list of the best was predicted by the legendary captain of Astralis Lucas gla1ve Rossander in the prediction for 2019, but only now Ali will make his debut in the ranking. Even reaching the final of the Starladder Major Berlin 2019 and performing at the tournament did not allow the bet to come true. Jame admitted that the choice of gla1ve gave him a huge surge of motivation.
Virtus.pro started this year with a victory at the cs_summit 7 tournament, where Dzhami was recognized as the MVP of the competition, then they reached the finals several times and stayed in the top 10 all year, once dropping to the 12th line. It should be noted that at the PGL Major Stockholm 2021, the Bears, in a stubborn struggle, flew out at the quarterfinals stage, skipping ahead of Heroic.
Jame's statistics demonstrate that he can safely call himself one of the strongest snipers in the world. But the most revealing thing is that Dzhami is the only captain in the HLTV top 20. Now, the remaining 9 rating players look extremely predictable. It is unlikely to see nafany, Boombl4, pex, cadian or nexa among them. Accordingly, unofficially, Jame took the title of chief IGL.
Many analysts attribute the success of the Bears to the duo of the clever sniper captain Jame and the super-aggressive marksman Mareks YEKINDAR Galinskis, which, there is a suspicion, we will talk about tomorrow. "Zheka", as the Virtus.pro players affectionately call their leader, helps his teammates reach the next level of their game by displaying the highest game IQ. Jami also took a total of 43 clutches, more than 1 in 1 in the past year, making him one of the leaders in this indicator in the world.
There are two highlights from Jame, sharply opposite, but they are the essence of this smart, focused, mentally strong leader.
Virtus.pro performed well in both online and LAN competitions. They scored a good move in the last part of the season in an updated line-up with Evgeny FL1T Lebedev, so it will not be a revelation for anyone if 2022 brings the team's results to a new level.
Jame opened the way, as befits a captain, there are still many pro-players of the CIS region ahead for our athletes in the top!
