you should count major as 2 tier 1 tournaments
BLAST PRO is for sure not tier1,5 its tier2-3
starseries s5 and CAC were tier3 events at best
Blast is not t1,5 its t2, there was only one t1 team (Astralis) and only 2 t2 teams (NiP and MiBR) and rest of the teams were trash
A section of a 'top 20; list I have been compiling
1. S1mple [1.33 (1.29 Major), 5 MVP, 1 EVP (Major), 3 Wins, 67 pts]
2. Device [1.25 (1.16 Major), 4 MVP (1 Major MVP) , 6 EVP, 6 Wins (1 Major), 31 pts]
3. NiKo [1.26 (1.22 Major), 1 MVP, 4 EVP (1 Major EVP), 2 Wins, 46 pts]
Leaderboard score (pts), works as follows:
1st - 5pts
2nd - 4pts
3rd - 3pts
4th - 2 pts
5th - 1pt
BLAST tier 1.5 lmaooo every tournament with teams like VP or SS tier3
Simple is best on an Aim-map - Device is better in a 5 on 5 match where you need to win. But they are both very good both places :D
Maybe s1mple has better raw aim and skill but obviously whatever device is doing is working. Maybe more supportive, team-focused style = worse stats but better team win rate.
Also tbh I think it's easier to get more frags when your whole team plays to set you up like for s1mple, and you have two anchors on your team in terms of frags so you have to pick up the slack.
It's not a coincidence that many T2 star players who were fragging machines turn into just regular players when they play alongside better teammates.
s1mple vs device HAAHAHH big joke this ukrainian noob who stay alive last of all round, and 80% of hes kills is EXIT kills ..... ...hahahah BIG JOKE 2018
StarSeries S5 (t2 evet)
ECS Season 5 Finals ( t1 event) BLAST PRO Series Istambul (t1,5 event)
Device steal major mvp from dupreeh
Bigger fan of simple but device is just better. Simple tend to choke under pressure and world best player cant do that.
BLAST PRO Series Istambul 2018 was a tier 2 event unfortunately. An easy money grab for Astralis.
No NaVi, FaZe, Liquid, Mouse Sports.
yea s1 top 1. device top.2
People needs to understand what's MVP meant at first, it means Most Valuable Player. That doesnt mean best player. It means that the player is the most important for their team. If you take out device from Astralis, they are still a good team. If you take out s1mple from NaVi, mehhh
But yeah MVP just became a thing for "best/better" player and stats freaks
simple more mvps than astralis POG
I wish Device takes the best player of 2018 award, or at least he’ll be 2nd after Simple, but he deserves to be 1st.
Lets go s1mple dum dum dumdumdum lets go s1mple dum dum dumdumdum
If anyone is making a new team and would take device over s1 they are retard lmao
blast t1.5 hahahahhaahahahahahahahahahah
