Casper “Gnaske” Praestensgaard, an Apex Legends professional player for the Pioneers, recently published a “hot take” for the community in which he argued that TSM’s Evan “Verhulst” Verhulst is currently the “greatest Apex player in the world.”
Because of Gnaske, the discussion on who the top player in Apex Legends is has begun again. On Twitter, the experienced esports player stated his opinion that TSM’s Verhulst is the best professional player in the world, and he provided a number of arguments to support his claim.
The 20-year-old athlete, according to Gnaske, possesses the skills and a professional mindset, is dedicated, maintains physical fitness, and keeps a humble attitude. “In addition to being a brilliant player, he’s possibly the best teammate to have,” Gnaske stated. However, he did emphasize that he was not referring to his teammates in this statement.
TSM Verhulst has been rated as the finest player in Apex Legends
Verhulst is a player in Apex Legends who is still relatively fresh to the scene. He began his competitive career in 2021 and immediately soared to the forefront of Team Intel and Esports Arena. After eventually signing with TSM in the tail half of 2021. He earned a slot on a top Apex Legends squad alongside Philip ‘ImperialHal’ Dosen despite having only six months of experience competing professionally.
Verhulst’s performance with TSM has earned him a number of accolades. Including first place at the 2022 ALGS North American Split 1 Playoffs. They also placed sixth at the Split 2 Playoffs, seventh place at the 2022 ALGS Championship. But most recently, first place at the 2023 ALGS Split 1 Playoffs.
The majority of members of the Apex Legends community concur with Gnaske’s assessment of Verhulst. Some claimed that the 20-year-old was even more talented than ImperialHal, who is generally the focus of more attention. The veteran TSM player was recognized as the Most Valuable Player of the 2023 Split 1 Playoffs. He is widely regarded as one of the most talented players in the esport.
Others concurred with the assessment that Verhulst is modest considering his age, and has space to develop further. TSM is now widely considered the top team in the game, and they have two players that have a legitimate shot at being the best players of all time, not just in their positions but in the game as a whole.
