At the end of the year to sum up as usually. On the eve of the official off-season team, CybBet decided to draw a line and point out the most promising players in Counter-Strike in professional e-sports. After all, the average age of about 25-26 years old players. By the age of 30 - are veterans or coaches. Therefore, to assess the prospects have to look at 18-year-olds.

We tried to take the most outstanding personalities from the games which will determine the future of e-sports in this discipline.
