Highlighted players

We have selected five players that you should look out for in EPICENTER 2019 - because they are on the rise or is the best players right now. Use the information with common sense and don't use our subjective assessment in games or betting if you do not agree.

Despite having a rocky 2019, shox and ZywOo have still proven to be a very deadly duo of players. ZywOo especially, being one of the most dominant players of the year. Together with shox, we are sure these 2 Vitality players will play very well here at EPICENTER 2019.

Ethan from Evil Geniuses has had a very good year, due to his mentality and talent for the game of Counter-Strike. He is many times the backbone of his team, leading the way in terms of fragging, so watch out for him!

ropz and his team mousesports have found their recipe for success late in 2019. But this can be credited to a player like ropz, who has been able to put his big talent on display lately. We expect him to keep playing out of his mind once again here at this tournament.

Last up is the always dangerous s1mple from NaVi. No matter how many times we mention it, he will still surprise everyone with his raw aim and talent for the game. Therefore we expect another jawdropping performance from one of the world’s best players, s1mple.
