He was ranked the best player of 2011 and the best player overall of the 2000s by HLTV. In CS:GO, NEO was a member of the longest-standing roster in its history that gathered notable victories at EMS Katowice 2014, ELEAGUE S1, and DH Las Vegas 2017 under the Virtus.pro banner.

NEO is also well-known for his great partnership with TaZ which spans over a decade.
