Markeloff is the best player of 2010!

The most impressive player of 2010

Conquering the world out of nowhere is definitely a dream of many new teams, and Markelov and the rest of Na´Vi give those teams hope that anything can happen within a year, or even a few months. At the end of 2009 they were just another new Ukrainian top team, and now one year later they are all considered world class players in a world class team.
During 2010, Markelov was the most consistent player, having an astonishing 80% of his matches with at least a 1.00 rating. He also had by far the most kills with the AWP (1042, which was 296 more than the closest follower), along with an impressive average of 0.30 awp kills per round (although at this he was 2nd best, as Michael "Friis" Jorgensen had an even more impressive 0.38 awpKPR). Markelov was also the 2nd best entry fragger, just slightly behind Heldt from mTw and far in front of the rest. He also showed during a few tournaments that he is one of the best clutchers (8 1vsX rounds won at IEM4 World Championship and 13 at Arbalet Best of Four).
In addition to his killing abilities, a special mention must be given to his unbelievably low death rate of 0.53 DPR, which means he survived 47% of the rounds he played, making him by far the hardest to kill of all players. Particularly impressive is that he managed to survive in more than 50% of rounds in 3 major tournaments (IEM4 World Championship, Arbalet Europe and GameGune), something that no other player did so many times, probably in the history of the game and certainly in 2010.
He had 12 notable top three finishes during the year, including 7 titles at international tournaments. The most impressive ones were of course IEM4 World Championship, ESWC and WCG, along with Arbalet Cup Dallas, DreamHack Winter, Arbalet Cup Best of Four and Arbalet Cup Asia.
As far as personal achievements go, he received two Best AWP awards for his performances with the big green at Arbalet Cup Best of Four and Arbalet Cup Europe. More importantly, even though unofficially, he was the MVP of the three biggest tournaments of the year – IEM4 World Championship, ESWC and WCG.
In conclusion, Markelov was the most consistent player and the most successful awper along with many other impressive stats; he was the best at the most important tournaments and played excellent in many important matches. With all that considered, he was the obvious choice for the 1st place on our Top 20 players of 2010 list.
