Best streamers in CS:GO: Part I  

  • Share:

Hi! Earlier, we told you about the best captains and young players in Counter Strike: Global Offensive. Now it is time to introduce you to the most interesting and exciting streamers in this game. We have a conditional list of 10 streamers, 8 of whom still play or have played CS professionally. In the first part, we will introduce you to the most popular streamers, and then we will talk about everyone else. The first one in our rank is…

Jarosław "pashaBiceps" Jarząbkowski (Poland)

Jarosław "pashaBiceps" Jarząbkowski

The professional player in Counter Strike: Global Offensive, who plays for the Polish team, Virtus.Pro. After joining VP, Jaroslaw won everything he could win in Counter Strike, starting with CS 1.6 World Cyber Games and ending with CS:GO Major tournament. pashaBiceps is the unique player. Sometimes his gameplay looks awkward and ridiculous, and sometimes he turns on a real “destruction mode” and, almost by himself, deals with a team of opponents. The Polish guy has played for a long time that is why he is the experienced and smart player. Just look at this highlight: 

Streams of pashaBiceps have a lot of fun, jokes and Polish language. Jaroslaw often plays funny Polish songs (sometimes wedding songs) on his streams, trolls other famous players (especially the shroud, olofmeister or French pro players) and calls his subscribers his family and his team – Team Biceps. It is significant and, at the same time, he keeps playing well and quite often wins his matches. His audience loves him, and he gets big amounts of money in donations. Everyone that follows CS:GO surely remembers a fantastic donation to pashaBiceps from motak2k… 

Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev (Ukraine)  

 Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev (Ukraine)  

Aleksandr Kostyliev was born and lives in Kiev and plays for the popular Ukrainian cybersport team Natus Vincere. He has introduced himself to the professional CS:GO arena playing first for HellRaisers and after that, playing for FlipSid3 Tactics and Team Liquid.  While performing for the last ones, he even played in the final CS:GO Major, but could not beat the Brazilian team,SK-Gaming in the final match. In the summer 2016, he joined Natus Vincere, thus making his old dream come true. 

Lately, s1mple does not stream often because he travels a lot to the different international LAN-tournaments with Natus Vincere. The popularity of his streams was mostly because of his high-skill gameplay in the FPL (the online league of the FaceIt platform). His streams on Twich can’t be called entertaining, as people watch them to improve their gameplay or learn how to shoot like s1mple does.

Ryan "fREAKAZOiD" Abadir (USA)

Ryan «fREAKAZOiD» Abadir (USA)

Ryan is the popular American streamer and the professional player of CS:GO who became popular worldwide when he played for the American team, Cloud9. But, to be honest, after his exile from this team, he became less popular. In 2016, Ryan played for Echo Fox but now he is playing for little-know Morior Invictus Esports

CS:GO fans love Abadir, not only for his playing skills but also for his appearance - this American guy has been going to the gym for a long time and can show off with big muscles. That is why Ryan has been a role model and is good in CS:GO; you can’t call him a nerd.

And fREAKAZOiD has a good sense of humor, he is a very funny guy!


Michael "shroud" Grzesiek (Canada)

Michael "shroud" Grzesiek (USA)

Another American guy in our ranking and another CS:GO player who had earlier been playing for the Cloud9 team. shroud is one of the most popular streamers in the world, but he has recently begun to stream another popular game - PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds. shroud is mainly popular due to his effective frags kills while jumping and some other playing tricks. Like fREAKAZOiD, Michael has a good sense of humor and often cheers up his audience and trolls his opponents in the game. 

Jaryd "summit1g" Lazar (USA)

Jaryd "summit1g" Lazar (USA)

Proof of the summit's streams popularity is the number of his subscribers. This American guy is followed by more than two million people on Twitch!

Earlier, Jaryd has played Counter Strike professionally but for the second or third division teams: Exertus Esports, Area51 Gaming, and Mythic. He has playing experience on the big international LAN tournaments (many people still remember his hilarious episode with a Molotov cocktail), but summit1g is rather entertaining streamer than a professional eSports player.

Besides CS:GO, summit1g plays also GTA or PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds and some other popular novelties. In our opinion, it is summit1g who is the most interesting streamer among other streamers that we have on the list. However, tastes differ.
