Gla1ve said astralis built a game plan around s1mple and Navi also had edward and zeus . While Astralis is loaded with great players. S1mple and Device are both top 3 at least this year.
2018-10-19 00:53
What do you mean top 3? It's fairly simple, s1mple will be nr. 1 and device nr. 2. Simple has had such a beasting year there is no way he cannot be the best. Even though device the last few months has had slightly better stats and more wins.

They actually made a list on the most Ecofrags. Top 20. Device wasn't even on the list but coldzera was number 2 and I think simple was number 18 or something. Don't quote me on that last one
2018-10-18 23:39
it was adr in eco rounds i believe and i think astralis players didnt have enough rounds to be featured in the chart even then device wouldnt be on it magisk, dupreeh, and glaive would be higher then him

You didn't get my point I think that they want to make device #1 of 2018 by giving an undeserved MVP which means a lot instead of giving it to dupreeh because he won't be #1 in this year for sure

Oh dayum, we've a conspiracy maker here. ONLY INCLUDING DEVICE AND DUPREEH: Rating favored Device. KD-diff favored Device. Damage diff per round favored Device. Total kills favored Device. DPR favored Device. KAST favored Dupreeh Entry kills favored Device. Worth mentioning that dupreeh had 0.03 better entry rating than device, which leads me to the next one: Entry succes favored Dupreeh. Only reason HLTV gives MVP to losing team is if they did something extremely incredible, and neither simple nor electronic did that. Also, looking at stats, device was without a doubt better than dupreeh. Now, Petar and Striker splits up the matches and watches all the matches and make a graph showing who they think is the MVP of the match. Not a single dane is helping decide who gets the MVP. Its also worth noting that device had a much better beginning to the major than dupreeh did and in playoffs they were pretty much equally good. (Only talking stats. Remember how petar and striker decides mvp of the match)

Higher ratings in 3 categories out of 10? Well, it means a lot, yeah. Also, device have higher rating than simple only since october, and he has a period when his rating was 0.86 (when s1mple has 1.4). And s1mple's rating in 2018 always higher than 1.2, that means a lot
2018-10-19 04:27

You have 1 pic against my 9 links, only one. And top1 2018 means that player will be the best throughout the year, not for 3 or 6 months of 2018 against top-5 teams. device can get top1 2018, of course, cause in the remaining two months there will be major tournaments. But now, s1mple better than devve
2018-10-19 10:52
Links that probably shows the same, s1mple getting exit/eco friends against tier 3-4 teams. Try against the best teams and s1mple will choke, just like in major finals. Astralis most dominant team in 2018 and device will claim his spot as number 1, let it sink in and now go cry

Oi idiot, you do know the system is built on impact of the round whereas EXIT FRAGS is shit to the stats. So get you freakin' facts right and do not look at only exit frags.
2018-10-19 09:21
Imo device should be first too. I mean s1mple might have had better stats this year, but device helped Astralis win 6 tournaments (so far this year, they can win 2 more possibly) and 1 of them a major in which device was the MVP, so IMO device should be first. It does not matter if you have the best stats in terms of skill only, but you need to win tournaments too.! DEVICE 1-ST BABY!

What's dumb is having to nitpick "top5" and last 6 months for device to have a better rating than simple. We all know overall simple has MUCH better rating than that bot
2018-10-18 22:26
top 5 matters more so what if simple gets a 1.80 rating vs hell raisers or something and 1.05 vs astralis when device gets 1.4 vs navi (i still feel simple deserves 1st)

It is? You have to beat the weaker teams to advance in the tournament and face better teams. If you're gonna filter do top 20 so that it still has a healthy amount of matches but still shows that they're facing stronger teams. Either way s1mple > device > rest
2018-10-19 04:14
#154

Well nitpicking by definition is to criticize in an unimportant way. Filtering top 20 gives advantage to players that play more t2 tournaments. Astralis almost never attend t2 teams while Navi does. Device has played 81 maps in top 5, S1 has played 49. Device and s1 each has played a total of 108 maps filtered top 20. So s1 has played 59 maps outside top 5 and device has 27 maps Do you think that filtering top 20 is more representative of the player's true rating than filtering top 5/10?
2018-10-19 12:21
#181
 | 
United States Jammin800k 
And 50 maps at the highest level is still a more than relevant sample size to compare from. Where s1mple is still superior, now let's factor in all competition, now let's factor in MVPs and EVPs. Pretty clear that s1mple is #1
2018-10-19 18:22
#183
 | 
Indonesia linekerrr 
81 maps > 50. that was what the other guy was arguing, and therefore wasn't nitpicky. 0.02 difference, and MVP+EVP: not really clear. device has 4 mvp + 5/6 evp. s1 has 5 mvp and 0 evp. NOT pretty clear that s1 is #1. you'll see that i'm not arguing that dev1ce is #1, but that it's still debatable who is #1

Okay fair enough but keep in mind some of s1mples MVPs didnt even require him to win the tournament meaning that he was so impressive that his level of play overshadowed even the winning memebers and he quite possibly stole these MVPs from device. I really dont think its debatable, theres no team that wouldnt improve by having s1mple while there are a few that would function worse or worse than the s1mple version with device. No knock on devices playstyle hes clearly one of the smartest players in the world but s1mple can function in literally any system while device has a team crafted around his playstyle and still isnt putting up the same numbers. And that's nothing against device that's just how good s1mple is.

Device is top 1 for sure, s1mple could never do what he does in a team with the amount of star players and fraggers Astralis has, the fact that Device can put up those #s in a team as stacked as his is impressive, s1mple is just fragging on a team with 1 other guy and everything is around him to do well, Device isn't a bitch he doesn't need full team around him to do well.

That's what I said too haha I thought you were being ironic since you said 2016, and dev1ce beat fallen in the ranking at 2017.

Achievements > everything else in the HLTV Top 20 players. Therefore NAF is nowhere near no. 2.
2018-10-19 01:27
Well... Then I guess the top5 will be given to the whole astralis team lol

It's pretty much a combination of both. But achievements matter a lot in the ranking.

Never said they didnt but xyp9x isnt going to be higher than electronic or NAF because he has "better achievements" stats at big events are by far the most important metric

Stop being butthurt. It's not Danes creating this list. Fallen had a clear dip in form in 2017. And I think s1mple will surely be #1 and device #2. (Changes may happen these last months).
2018-10-19 18:27
if device gets #1 CSGO is officially a joke.

We already know that a lot of it is based on team achievements. If it was entirely from individual stats, s1mple would get it but since team achievements also count it's probably going to be device.
2018-10-19 00:13

There is no equivalent of edward and zeus on astralis. Everyone on astralis can carry their own weight. device has an awp in his hands more, because his team is better, their team economy is better, and therefore has better stats. Everyone knows a good team will pad your stats. device has everything down to calculations- take a shot, fall back. It's effective, but not what you think of when people think 'skill'. s1mple knows he has to kill 2-3 people per round for Navi to win, so he plays more aggressively. it's way more fun to watch
2018-10-19 00:21
And if shutdown, he becomes kind of worthless to his team as he can't adapt to playing a non-starplayer role. S1mple is not the best cs.go player, way too incomplete.

I provided stats as evidence to who is the better player, you provided nothing. Ergo I win.
2018-10-19 18:16
Win what? Is this a competition? You have clearly lost your marbles if you think so. You base your opinion stats by itself. Hilarious idiocy.

Go check the #1 players from any previous year, were they one of the highest rated players that year at big events? Yes yes they were. I base my opinion partially on stats, you base your opinion on nothing.
2018-10-19 19:04
DId their teams win significant titles, yes they did. I love using people's own logic to counter them.

Astralis players are all capeable of pulling their weight, and for the first 4 months of 2018 all s1mple did was carry na'vi to a win and he still does (Although FINALLY he has some help). Based on stats alone s1mple wins, and based on "the eye test" s1mple wins. Hes a better cluthcer, better rifler, better with pistols, you can put him in pretty much any position and win simply because of his playstyle and his ludicrous talent. The only thing dev1ce wins in is achievments and thats because Astralis are one of the most dominant teams to play CS and at the moment they dismantle every other team. In terms of the best player for 2018, if we're talking about all the qualities that make "a best player" s1mple just does it better for every category than anyone else.

s1mple is the best player in the world, PERIOD. dev1ce maybe first between humans. nothing wrong to admit it. and that’s make Astralis era even more epic. the best player in the world watching others dominate the scene.

Device is the goat as he has been consistent over the years while simple has a peaks. Also device is #1 this year as he just is beast for the team. Simple says he is a team player but he wants to carry he won't let others go big on the main stage as he wants the attention. Individually Simple is better than device in 1v1 however on stage or with a team device wins 100% baby.

Swap device and s1mple on the teams they're on and Navi drops while Astralis remains #1 if language isnt a factor. And that doesnt go for just device that goes for every player in the world. S1mple Device Niko
2018-10-19 05:22
he can talk the talk, but can he walk the walk..... Nope....it' all words.
2018-10-19 15:11
s1mple and niko have way more talent than device who sits in 1 position and picks people off
2018-10-19 08:43
Probably yes.
2018-10-19 09:34
how can people STILL not understand how the top20 works after all those years?? Device is the best player for the best team in the world BY FAR. S1mple is the best player in a top 3 team. I know most of u are ignorant kids, but if (when) device is ranked #1 it has NOTHING to do with hltv being danish or anything else. This is just how the rankings work. I thought KennyS deserved best player of the year 2015 but that just wont happen when ur not on a winning team.

s1mple is like niko, boost stats on groupstage/online, then choke HARD on big stage games... my man devve REKTING people left and right on big finals, mvp of major, etc too ez4 devve. s1mple just a streamer playing for highlights, once real teams punish him he get lost and choke too ez. #devve_2_majors_s1mple_0_majors

Maybe Device can teach him how to end his choking days. He surely got over the worst chokerino.
