He was good, yes, but was he really better than device or simple or snax or shox ?
fallen was the 2nd best player on the best team wheras device was the best player on a worse team. put it this way, if you took coldzera out of sk , replaced him with an average player (say, boltz) and fallen became the main star, could they be as good as another team such as astralis which would also only have one top 5 player in it? my opinion is no. fallen that year was a worse player than device or s1mple, but he won more so he gets 2nd place by hltv logic
