Stéphane “Shaiiko” Lebleu has been a top three player in Europe, at least statistically, for two years now. He dominates in regional competition with his incredibly flashy, aggressive playstyle, and has put up solid international stats as well.
His performance at SI 2022 wasn’t the greatest, but don’t get stuck in recency bias. Shaiiko had a monster 2021 year.
Shaiiko was a top-five rated player in both the Mexico and Sweden Majors, boasting SiegeGG Ratings of 1.28 and 1.17 respectively. His Rating on the year was 1.24, the second-highest in the world. Shaiiko is also a prolific entry fragger, winning an impressive 63% of his opening duels.
Ever since returning from his ban, Shaiiko has been one of the game’s brightest stars. His stellar play across a vast majority of the truncated year has earned him a spot in our top five this year.
