Have you even looked in Device stats lmao exit fragger are you deluded?
He's literally 2nd in every important stat in the fucking game, can't even flick?
I get it you think playing flashy is better than playing properly and that's why Astralis is on top and other teams are sucking up crumbs they left over.
All Device needs is a MVP of something like a major and win this major and he's top 1 this year without question, another MVP if he really wants to spread the gap, his stats are too insane top 2 in every important stats, plays way less than s1mple as well so for me that's impressive. s1mple literally plays the most FPL out of any tier 1 pro out there and it's not even remotely close, he's a no lifer on this game, Device is playing less than half of his hours and is comparable in every stat, this isn't a real debate lots of time left this year for him to over take s1mple people think top 1 is only for 6 months of the year no motherfucker top 1 goes to the beast that dominates the entire year.
Device right now is easily top 2 statistically and is more successful than s1mple is but at the end of the day HLTV only rating on pure stats, doesn't give a shit if they were against lower teams and in worse events, so all he has to do is get a big MVP award and that will cancel out the 2 tier 2 MVPs s1mple has alone and they will be then tied for big event MVPs and Astralis will have more titles in the biggest events.
Kind of like Ronaldo vs Messi, Messi has better raw stats, Ronaldo has better stats in International and Champions League so whats more important stats from BBVA or Stats from the biggest events? I mean none is even comparing the 2 anymore cause it's clear as fuck Ronaldo is better, he doesn't have to have the most goals and assists the point is he performs in the shit that matters and Messi hasn't been doing that for years now.
