#8. İsmailcan "XANTARES" Dörtkardeş
XANTARES ranked eighth in the top 10 players of the month, and his performance seemed to transport us back to the days when all reckoned with the Turkish teams. He literally carried Eternal Fire on his shoulders to the quarterfinals of EPL S18, where his squad showcased a thrilling battle and incredible tenacity.
#7. Álvaro "SunPayus" García
#6. Lotan "Spinx" Giladi
This month, Spinx once again showcased his stellar gaming skills, helping Team Vitality confidently move to the quarterfinals of EPL S18, securing first place in Group A. However, as often happens in the competitive CS world, even the strongest teams can face unexpected challenges. In the EPL playoffs, Vitality clashed with team Monte, and unfortunately, Spinx and the rest of the team faltered in this match. Perhaps it was a result of underestimating the opponent.
#5. Mathieu "ZywOo" Herbaut
Mathieu "ZywOo" Herbaut is undoubtedly one of the most prominent and talented players in the CS:GO world. However, in September 2023, there was a slight decline in his game form. This doesn't mean his skills have become less impressive, or he's lost his place among the top players. In the competitive CS:GO world, maintaining consistently high form is incredibly challenging, and even top players sometimes need a little rest to regain their strength.
#4. Kaike "KSCERATO" Cerato
KSCERATO is one of the most distinguished Brazilian CS:GO players. In September 2023, he secured the fourth spot on the list of the best players of the month, emphasizing his talent and contribution to his team's play. Over the years, he's proven his ability to consistently display a high level of play. His skills and strategic thinking make him a vital part of the team, and his impact on match outcomes is hard to overstate. If he decides to step out of his comfort zone and move to a European club, he might face new challenges and opportunities for career growth.
#3. Guy "Nertz" Ilyuts
#2. Benjamin "blameF" Bremer
blameF continues to amaze with his individual performance. In September 2023, he secured the second spot in the monthly best player rankings, underscoring his skill. However, despite his personal achievements, Astralis still faces challenges in tournaments. Maybe he just doesn't have the right teammates alongside him.
#1. David "frozen" Chernyansky
David "frozen" Chernyansky topped the list of the best CS:GO players in September 2023, and it's absolutely well-deserved. His performance in the latest tier-1 championship in CS:GO history was stunning. As a result, he was named MVP at ESL Pro League Season 18.
frozen has been a pivotal figure for his team, helping them clinch the EPL trophy. His ability to make the right decisions during matches, pinpoint shooting, and team collaboration brought stability. Chernyansky's character highlights the importance of individual skill and teamwork in Counter-Strike.
The individual performances of these esports athletes significantly influenced their teams' results in September 2023. They provided unforgettable moments and highlights to the fans. We hope that everyone on this list will continue to display top-tier gameplay on the professional CS2 scene.
