HAHA YES +1 +1 +1
He only holds defensive angles and hits shots even a gold nova could hit. He rely on his team SOOOO MUCH. He would get REKT in a pugging environment :)
Device is just a good looking guy with not so much experince awping
Allu, S1mple, Draken, GuardiaN, Mixwell, Oskar, Snax, Papa, Nitro, CerQ, KennyS, Xccurate, Skadoodle, Hen1, Mou, Smooya
Just a small taste of pro AWPers that are better than Device.
becuse device consitently gets atleast 2 kills pre round while surviving and the reason he does not hit any hard shots is becuse he always puts himself in a postion to get and easy shot and play it safe for his team
device is edit fragger and gets ugly easy kills when his teammates bait for him
Only player who has consistently been in the top 5 for the past 3 years, and will probs be top 3 this year at this rate
except for the last line huge +1
There is more than 5 players with 2 majors or more.
So device with only one major is not among the top5 all time.
kennyS, GuardiaN, FalleN, oskar, Skadoodle, JW, s1mple - all of them are better awpers in my opinion.
But dev1ce is playing in a team which is kind of #1 at the moment. But as a player he is top anyway. Even making those easy kills isn't an easy task. It's an ability to choose right angle, position, movement, decision to make easy shots possible.
coldzera, gtr, olofm, shox, kennyS, cant see him squeezing in since he has almost never the best player for larger amount of time (when he was it was only for like 1 month) but he is definitely close to top5
Good AWPer, Great Rifler, Great Pistol player. I would say +1
Haters gonna hate him, he will fuck your GF
Device has been in the HLTV top 5 for three years in a row, and almost certainly will be there again this year.
So while he hasn't ever managed to reach the high peaks of players like GTR, Flusha, Olof, and Coldzera, he's outlasting them all.
How is that not consistent?
Also, the point about him hitting only easy AWP shots is stupid. He was one of the most skilled riflers in the world before he even became an AWPer. Along with S1mple he's one of the few AWPers in the pro scene who would be relatively unaffected performance-wise if the AWP was removed from the game tomorrow.
Put him in a team which is not as coordonated and as tactical as astralis and all that shit.
In a "superstar" team he would be the bottom fragger or the 2nd bottom fragger.
Device is only good in the robotic environment of astralis.
Yea now would you say "Yea astralis knows how to use him"but remember,device it is good because of his team not because of him.
omg, i cant stand your virgin ass haters, u are so damn dumb. i cant admit that you are that stupid, 100% you are baiting, how can you say that device is not a top player lmao, when astralis were struggling he was the man who put the numbers and now when they are top1 standing strong above all he is still putting numbers are making impactful frags, he is playing the smartest cs of all them players out there. yeah sure his playstyle isn't flashy, but he is kicking ass and astralis are winning which is the most important. I have much respect for players like simple,NiKo etc who are making insane plays but at the end the discipline and the teamplay wins tournaments.. literally i am disgusted by all of the haters out here, no matter if u hate device, coldzera, simple,NiKo, Stewie2k or whatever, if u are that good why don't you go out there and show how it should be done? ffs
by this year end he will be top 5 or even top 3 all time.as an awper he already is.
kennyS.guardian,device,jw and fallen are top 5 awpers of all time
nobody ever said he was top5 all time other than delusional astralis fanboys that are max 10y old
IMO at this moment... top3 ? or top4?
this thread is so stupid, it has to be a bait. calling device top 5 is a punch in the face of all real cs legends
Imo he is consistent and do his job and its working but still I would not consider him as top5 player. For example there is like 3 or more better awpers rn. Someone will bring there stats but with playstyle of device and astralis almost every other awper would get his stats....
edit: +he is not able to carry when his team is playing bad
i do think when astralis stop dominating his stats will go down a lot but with a player like s1mple it dosent seem to matter
Most consistent player in the world, always making sure that his team doesn't lose stupid rounds and he's always putting up a good fight against other good teams. (You can't find an event where he didn't get the EVP or MVP while his team won)
I don't know, but he's definetly a BORING player
thats kinda true . he would suck in a team without firepower beside him
Absolutely agree. He doesn't deserve top5
Going by your statement does this mean Gla1ve is that good of an igl that he can have a gold nova awper and still dominate most tournament's?
Spectacular plays < Safety & efficiency. He's holding a line and getting the kill ? Well that's what the game is about. He plays like a robot, and just like in chess, robots usually make the best decisions.
And by the way, before hating you'd better check your facts, dev1ce has probably been the most consistent player over a career in CS:GO history (that's why he's been on top of some top 20s)
He doesn't deserve top 5 of all time because he is eco fragger lol
not yet maybe top10, but he will be top5 soon
Top 10 yeah, top 5 no way
after hltv ranking after this year, he is easily top3 of all time nomatter how much do you hate him
best player on the best team, top frags almost every game dropping nearly 30. Ranked top 5 players in the world every year since 2015, incredible all around game and a major champion. Top 3 all time for sure.
Probably a bait, but I agree
Device overrated and boring af
such a bad bait its unreal how you hooked half the website onto this retarded thread lmao
0/8 bait but hes been a top 5 player every year and top 3 many times why wouldnt he be top 5 of all time? what 5 players are better?
you could definitely make a case for it
maybe top10 awper but I prefer sunde
Same with football. Ronaldo only scores easy goals, but people still call him the greatest of all time.
Coldzera, Forest, Device, Olofmeister and Fallen (or Flusha).
Maybe top 15. People only remember him when he plays like a god, but forget this only happens once a year. Inconsistent af
