There are many talents in esports, but there are some that stand out among the rest. Despite only being a professional player for a year, Russian star Ilya "m0NESY" Osipov has already made a name for himself as one of the best in the world of competitive gaming.
A majority of the Top 20 players for 2022 have already been revealed by HLTV. Obviously, we need to wait to discover who topped the list. During the HLTV Award Show, the Top 3 part of the list will be revealed following the announcement of the next three names by him.
Earlier this week, the 7th place winner was announced, and he was m0NESY. It has been quite the year for the young player who joined G2 Esports at the beginning of last year, and has had a phenomenal first year against the competition.
His achievement of being a great individual achievement at only 17 years of age is a great accomplishment also. m0NESY's statement G2 and m0NESY have a great deal of success on the team level, but they have only won the BLAST World Final 2022.
There was also one MVP award that was given to the player in that team. M0NESY can also be proud of being the player with the greatest percentage of winning opening duels (64.3%). The year passed with his rating at 1.22 against all five of the teams in the top five throughout the year.
In terms of AWP kills and AWP kill rate, he maintained his status as one of the top AWPers, averaging 0.41 AWP kills per round. "It's an incredible feeling to be in the top 20 list. First of all, I want to thank my teammates and the staff of G2, without them it would have been much more difficult to achieve this.
As for me personally, it shows me that I have made good progress this year. Second, no matter what, I'm going to work a lot harder. I enjoy playing at the highest level, it gives me a lot of emotions. Even after a defeat, I don't like to be frustrated or upset, I want to play and play, to be better. The more mistakes you make, the more new things you learn."- he said.
