Here goes my list and thoughts on who should be the top 10 SG players for 2017. THIS IS MY PERSONAL OPINION
1: GSBlank; GodSpeedBlank, GarenaShellsBlank, GoreShitBlank, GoodSeeLBlank. He is an absolute monster in both Singapore and Worldwide. Boasting very impressive scores with HR and DT with insane consistency to top it off, there is not much wonder as to why GSB deserves this number 1 spot for me. He's also a veteran when it comes to tournaments, usually performing consistently well in most of his matches. The sheer skill that he possesses have to truly be seen to believe.
2: Emilia; This one is self-explanatory. The most well-known Singaporean player ever has proven time and again why he deserves the rank that he's at. His incredible aim and speed have shocked many both within and outside Singapore. Watching his climb to top 10 in the world was incredible, seeing him set all of those insane scores. The main reason I put him below GSBlank is because his specialty lies only in very difficult maps. On easier difficulties, his performance is subpar compared to what GSBlank can dish out. This does not make him a bad player though, and he still very well deserves the 2nd place on my list.
3: Raindrop; Mouse #1 definitely deserves a place high up on this list. One of my most respected players, he is my inspiration to try to do so well in this game. His skills in all the various mods and his consistency with them makes me think of him as a mouse player GSBlank. Even if I manage to beat him in rank, he will continue to be a player that I will look up to. This year was certainly a big year for him as shown by his major improvement before he left for NS.
4: LanJay; Lanjiao-senpai is both a great player and a great person. He's typically associated with his major improvement since he switched to a 144hz monitor, where his speed as a whole improved tremendously. Although he no longer plays it as much, I have respect for his EZ and low AR skills, which allowed him to coin the nickname "EZ Boi". His tournament performance is also quite impressive, winning him some pretty insane matches.
5: Elegant Loli; He is considered as a legend for NoMod in Singapore. His aim on difficult 7* maps has been proven to be absolutely mind-boggling, and his consistency allows him to reach such a high rank in a mere 20k plays. Although his skills in other mods are improving, they're nothing much to write home about. However, I believe that his aim and consistency alone lets him deserve such a high spot on my list. As my "rival", I strive to be on-par with his ability. This just goes to show how skilled he is in many difficult NoMod maps.
6: [-Lockon-]; Impressive improvement over the course of this year. His speed and aim are excellent and amongst the best within the country. Although he's remaining pretty inactive for now, I believe that he deserves this place. His fight with LanJay for SG#5 was something I can't forget, being one of the most intense rank battles in the country.
7: Rtyzen; It's hard not to put him on this list. Being one of the better DT players in Singapore and as a revered god in the tournament scene, there is no doubt that he is a force to be reckoned with. Although he doesn't really play actively anymore, I would like to see him set some more scores to display his skills even more.
8: Nakano-; Even though he doesn't want to be on this list, I'll put him here anyway. His AR11 scores remain to be impressive especially within Singapore, where AR11 players are nearly non-existent. Throughout this year he had been putting more and more great AR11 scores, solidifying the fact that he is indeed the one of the fastest readers within the country.
9: Jolene; Tokaku is back and stronger than ever. She has a plethora of HR scores that I can only dream of replicating. Although she hates HD to the core, her skills in NoMod and DT are also pretty great. She has amazing consistency and I wish to see even more HR and AR11 scores from her in the future.
10: Monome; Contrary to Jolene, she is mainly a HD player. Her aim and reading on HD are amazing to witness and her improvement since late last year to early this year was easily noticeable. Although she no longer plays as much as before, I believe that in her peak early this year, she was on her way of being a true noteworthy player.
NOTE: All of these players are still good and I have no grudges/bias against them. Maybe
Xancos; Still a good well-rounded player but falls a bit short compared to the rest in this list. SG too many good players already.
Drugkeeper; He still has no gf. Original god of HDHR farming pp maps. Respectable and smart player that improved to keep competing for top 10 early this year. Since JC started for him, he again has no more time to play osu. I hope he gets a gf soon
Plz Enjoy Game; I thought he quit or smth lol. His aim is very well regarded throughout the world and I'm sure many already know that and decided to vote for him. Since he says that he's quitting, I wanted to give other Singaporean players a chance to be recognized by others. My phrasing might instigate a negative vibe against him but I swear that I still respect his ridiculous aim.
Loslite; DarknesStealth/Lostlite is a great consistent player that can do some pretty hard maps with low acc. I believe that he deserves to be recognized and praised for his overall skills.
SupremeChaoss; Rising speed god within SG. I would not be surprised if he makes it to top 10 next year with the current rate at which he's growing.
JejuneDeity(Bancho), JejuneDeity(Ripple), Akbar Allahu, Hyperzap ego, My Angel Xancos, MyAngelLoumou, SUKKIMAHDEEK; I have no doubt in my mind that if he wasn't FUCKING BANNED ON BANCHO, he would've made it to top 10. His aim on pp maps is good, which led to him being banned in the first place (jk).
SeeL; WOAH HOLY SHIT THIS GUY IS GOOD AND HE DESERVES SG MOUSE #1 BUT I'M SO SAD THAT I CAN'T VOTE FOR MYSELF XDXDXDXD
