Na'Vi starts 2v5 every round since Edward, flamie, and Zeus act as bait for s1mple so the clutch stat is inflated for s1mple his bait usually never gets kills so s1mple usually gets entry kills so his entry kill stat is inflated again s1mple has 3 people baiting for him so his impact is inflated as well meanwhile electronic gets no recognition nt norway
2018-12-09 22:58
Just think about it. S1mple with electronic managed to carry this shitty team to top 2. They two are extremely good
2018-12-09 23:00
team isn't shit s1mple utilizing 3/5's of the team as bait meanwhile electronic is left alone while s1mple statpads

Do not even try to reply to this fanboy of Device as he indicated himself tho. The ones who are looking after pro CS:GO truly know that for now S1mple is #1, but Device... I might claim Niko is better than Device as individual player. But Astralis as a team dominates the game that gives Device to act more comfortable

2018-12-10 00:14
i mean he isnt overrated as player But yeah he is overrated by fans they think that he is top 1 and he is better than s1mple but thats not true He has got 3 undeserved mvps this year Xyp9x and gla1ve deserved it more but hltv really want to put him #1 s1mple >device

doesnt matter who deserves it - device will get it
2018-12-09 22:49
+1 S1mple fanboys are getting too annoying with these "device doesnt deserve it" shit. Device works perfectly in a well balanced team. S1mple is an amazing player, but the team is built around him and he always trade kills, so his rating is inflated. You see every him playing very cautiously every 2v2 or 2v3 and his teammate playing as entry. If he can't trade kills, he is usually the last player alive and saving his weapon.
2018-12-10 00:47

2018-12-09 23:01
Then change team
2018-12-09 23:20
too bad he signed 2 year contract year ago and now is stuck in NAVI
2018-12-10 00:08
Are you retarded? Forget all the past years where this guy didn't get top 1 because his team kept choking and he was playing in worse lineups with same core with inconsistent players still always the best player in his team all those teams even though they were losing and choking, well guess what kid in 2018 he has the achievements as well unlike those years so yeah he is top 1.
2018-12-11 05:20
To be honest, raw aim and skill wise I'd say S1mple > Device. actually even at consistency (everyone have bad games once in a while.) And imo, device is really good and all, but he's not even top5 when it comes to top5 PLAYER. He's where he's at cus of his team, and he's definitely, if there even is, the most replaceable in astralis.

I'm not saying s1mple doesn't deserve it more, but u can't look only the numbers, Device plays lot more games since they win more games and get further in the tourney so its harder to keep insane ratings + Device has better team so he doesn't need to do as much as s1mple and whole navi is playing around s1 and electronic.

you also need to involve impact rating to see how is good device without eco frags, is like 1.16 rating in whole year not just top 5 compere to s1mple 1.34 impact rating
2018-12-10 22:25
Sighs Device isnt an eco fragger Impact rating can only so useful If device is such an eco fragger why does he have by far the biggest impact rating in astralis Also #30 there is no need to push info i already know on to me
2018-12-10 22:35
cuz they destroy everyone = a lot of eco frags, s1mple play always agaist buy rounds so that why he have big impact lul
2018-12-10 22:39
Yes i fucking know simple is better then device I have never once said device is better then simple this year now read what i wrote instead of being an annoying fanboy
2018-12-10 22:45
all of astralis players have low impact rating cuz they all eco fragsers, what can you do when you rape some m16-0, you for sure gonna have a lot eco frags, and for sure device couldnt find them all
2018-12-10 22:47
You know simple gets more eco frags then any one on astralis right
2018-12-10 22:49
how??? s1mple lose 16-4 for any team like liquid mouz astralis faze, how the fuck you can get at least 1 eco frag in 16-4 game? any one in astralis is like 2x more then s1mple on eco frags, ofc they cant avoid that they are realy dominant Also navi always tend to no respect on some tier-5 teams, that why they through some round and no eco frags, they can go 16-14 with any team, in such match you could have 2-4 eco rounds at most, while every astralis player is getting ez +5 from eco frags almost everygame
2018-12-10 22:54
why are you replying to someone that writes "all of astralis players have low impact rating cuz they all eco fragsers"? it's waste of time
2018-12-10 22:54
Was going to try to educate him but i might just give up after seeing what he just wrote
2018-12-10 23:02
It's not only rating that counts, Achievements, MVPs and difficulty of the tournaments (level of teams that were beaten by the champion) are also a factor
2018-12-10 01:45
TheBlackSwordsman posted the same stats but only stats VS top 5 teams. and Simples MVPs without even winning counts for more than device having 5% better stats than his winning team
2018-12-11 11:26

Between the two, just consider individual skill I would say S1mple. Dev1ce is also a great player, but having a better team and teamwork help too much to stand out (best example is today's Bo5 where he only excelled on 1 map).

2018-12-10 19:21
His flicks are good too, and so is his rifle game. He holds angles more than simple, because it’s the smartest way to play.

2018-12-10 22:30
if s1mple take dev1ce playstyle and just hold angle navi would be like top-7-8 team this year, just watch navi - liquid on epl, they see where s1mple and just rush other side to get it for free, s1mple always try to find where is opponent so you wont do retake like 2v5 with just electronic Why everyone think that passive playstyle = more teamplay????????! what if zues tell s1mple go somewhery try to be agressive he is not a team player???? i bet your life that if s1mple would do this by himself zues would rage on him
2018-12-10 22:58
Simple needs to be aggressive and explosive BECAUSE navi does not have a good enough system for him to play like device. But if someone in astralis took crazy risks it would fuck up their system
2018-12-10 23:30
yep astralis dont need to play like s1mple, but navi cant use s1mple as device that would drop navi into top-10 team, they need to get advantage of such a player, if he just stay on side he wouldnt be able to defend from 2 sides cuz eveyr side in a game have 2-3 enters. and navi wont help him he would left alone to defend the site, that why he push in such positions where enemy can come only from 1 side and ez kill

If it was entirely individual stats, then s1mple. Since team achievements also count then it's probably going to be device unless Navi wins Blast Lisbon and s1mple gets the MVP. Even then it's still probably 50/50.
2018-12-10 22:27
69% nice
2018-12-10 22:34
ez4s1mple <3
2018-12-10 22:36
Both players fit their teams right now, but if you are talking #1 player in the world....no doubt it is s1mple. He is the best right now and is only getting better. Idc about team achievements much. This is an individual award and should be treated as such. I am willing to bet all 5 Astralis members make Top12/15 and only 2 of Na'Vi. S1mple carries the team and they lose every game he does not carry them. If device has a bad game (like in the last finals against Liquid - bad as in compared to teammates), his team still wins. This proves s1mple is just more important and better
2018-12-10 22:57
Talking about #1 stats inflated and boosted by playing shit teams like HR @ LAN like 20+ times this year where you drop 2.00+ rating against tier 2 trash ofc you will take s1mple 100% most inflated stats in CS Go history just because of the low level trash opponents he's been playing @ LAN whole year, very few big events and most of those events just farming stats in group stage against shit teams and then get stomped in the playoffs as usual by any good opponents. IMO s1mple is top 1 against lower teams it's without question just look at his stats is fucking disgusting, against top 5 teams Device is MILES better not even a debate, pick your poison I like Device, s1mple also good player, Device shows up when it counts, s1mple shows up when it doesn't so for me I give the edge to Device all time not just in 2018.
2018-12-11 05:40
What are you talking about you fag? Last device's MVP was made on HR and ViCi while he was THE WORST of his team in Grand Final vs 1 good team wihch they faced - Liquid.... Stop spiting bullshit about S1mple you dumb hater. Face the facts.
2018-12-11 13:17
No point to argue this I was just checking their stats nothing you can do changes facts sorry m8. I like them both but Device is better against stronger opponents and s1mple is better against lower opponents and when I say better against lower opponent I'm not saying slightly he is like 500x better against tier 2 trash than Device is, almost like device doesn't even try against the low shit. Another I noticed looking at this is all of s1mple's best ratings this year are against shit teams not even joking ALL of them, all of Device best ratings against are not so like idk what you are trying to argue but you're dumb af if you try to argue shit we can check here in HLTV.

device is where he is because of his team but ofc he is doing his part very well like everyone in Astralis. BUT when it comes to skill s1mple is just waaaaaaay and i say waaaaaaaaay better.

2018-12-11 13:16
Obviously s1mple is the better player carrying his team. But the prize isn't only about skill but also achievements. Device claiming that many MVPs in Astralis when Astralis is without the doubt number1 team this year. Device will win the title, and he deserves it imo.
2018-12-11 11:49
ez NEO top 1
2018-12-11 13:14
ez for S1mple it seems.
2018-12-11 13:16
most people on hltv knows that he is 1st, but there are a lot of haters that are happy with dev1ce as first as long as it is not s1mple, even tho even they know that dev1ce sucks

The top 20 players are literally based on their achievements no shit Dev1ce is going to win it and yes I believe s1mple is the more skilled player here but it doesn't mean he deserves the top #1 spot when Dev1ce has attained so many MVP's and tournament wins this year
