they are not
THey are either fangays or s1mple haters
S1mple t1 device t2.
S1mple is a much better player, far superior in skills (both rifling and awp'ing), him and Electronic carry Na'Vi to their victories time after time, whereas Device is playing with a damn solid team where he doesnt have to carry to win.
The only goddamn way Device wins is if hltv takes team success into consideration, and not the players raw skill and stats this year. Device has won a ton more tourneys than S1mple, but S1mple will always be better than Device.
That said, S1mple > Dupreeh > Device
both s1mple and device have strong arguments for top 1 finish
-surely one of the best performances throughout the year CSGO has ever seen
-individually top 1 without a doubt
-better stats than device
-all events 1+ rating
-more tournaments won
-more MVPs won including major MVP
-danish (hltv is danish site)
although device won more tournaments, the fact is that he has better players around him than s1mple who has electronic and occasional showings of flamie. in my opinion it would be unfair not to give s1mple number 1 spot because he was just on another level this entire year
