Mathieu ‘ZywOo’ Herbaut burst onto the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive scene in 2018, and just over a year later, the Frenchman is already being discussed as a candidate to become the game’s best player of all time.

At just 19 years old, ZywOo is still a relative newcomer to the upper echelons of CS:GO, bursting into the spotlight in late 2018 when he joined French squad Team Vitality, and has remained with the organization ever since. 

ZywOo’s talent was well known to online players, and while being thrust into the limelight as a young man can sometimes be a tough burden to bear, the French superstar has thrived, showing off the true extent of his talents with dominating displays that have catapulted him to the top of the game.

After an incredible 2019, the Vitality star is now being compared to legends of the game like Oleksandr ‘s1mple’ Kostyliev, and while he claims he is uninterested in these comparisons, it shows how highly he is already rated by the Counter-Strike community. 

ZywOo openly admits that 2019 was his season, but knows he’ll need to work hard if he wants to stay at the top of the mountain. If he keeps up his jaw-dropping form from 2019 though, he may just cement himself as the greatest of all time.
