Just four months ago, Heroic’s CS:GO team hit an all-time low. They were ranked 36th in the world, the roster’s move to FPX had fallen through and es3tag eventually left for Astralis, but things are looking up. 

They certainly didn’t look like a team that would be strong enough to challenge the elite powerhouses in Europe, but somehow, Heroic started to bring home top-four finishes one after each other. This eventually led to the Danish side doing the seemingly impossible and winning ESL One Cologne – one of Counter-Strike’s most prestigious tournaments.

Obviously, this result has been somewhat muddied by the news that broke a day later about coach Nicolai ‘HUNDEN’ Petersen being suspended for exploiting a bug at an event earlier in the year. Heroic, though, have shown that they can overcome this with their crazy fragging ability.

During ESL One Cologne, four of the top five kill leaders at the tournament were Heroic players – with only the IGL Casper ‘cadiaN’ Møller missing out in sixth. cadiaN did make up for this by having the second most AWP kills at Cologne.

Kenny ‘kennyS’ Schrub is arguably Counter-Strike’s greatest AWPer of all-time and is considered one of the game’s most mechanically gifted players in history.

Kenny, has reached heights most aspiring pros could only dream of. But after leading his all-French lineup to their Major win, the sniping sensation has had his fair share of ups and downs.

After his roller-coaster time at Envy, Schrub moved to G2 Esports and this is where everything started falling into place. After taking some time restructuring the French AWPer now finds himself among a roster of players willing to support his unorthodox style of play.

One of the most impressive stats the veteran has is that he holds the record for the most AWP kills of all time with 18,371, with Guardian coming in second with 16,214, and ENCE star Allu is in third with 13,862.

A now rejuvenated Kenny is leading G2’s charge back to the top of CS:GO, but is the AWP GOAT past his sell-by date? Here’s what the stats say.
