The most important criterion for evaluating esports players is, of course, the results of the game. The player’s team must take high places in important tournaments, for example, the Major series. This event takes place only once a year and gamers carefully prepare for it. Major winners receive not only a big cash prize, but also high positions in the CS GO player ranking.

Tournaments are won by teams in which all players make a certain contribution. Having the ballast in the form of a weak e-player will not win many awards. However, every team has a leader who stands out from other gamers. He gains the most frags and wins the decisive rounds. Such player draws some games on himself. The team leader also has good headshot kills, frags to deaths. Such CS:GO players occupy leading positions in the world leaderboards.

Prize money is another important evaluation criterion. They can win 10 small tournaments, or they can win one and get the same amount. The team most often takes the won prize money for itself and divides it into five or six, if there is a coach in the team.
