I've posted answer for similar comment.
Some of the aspects of the game cant be measured. How can u rate smokes or mollies (not damage, but tactical value). Those categories, i mentioned in my first comment, can be measured by achievements. Because team dominance is created by nades, strats, communication, info, mental mood. Astrais is the good example (they were killed by clown9 players on aim map). Winning is not only about killing.
Simple is super bad at using his nades properly. He knows few smokes per map, gives bad and loud info, tilts, relies only on his aim (he can play safely, but no, he dont want to play smart. He goes for reckless wide peeks all the time. But his 16 000 hours aim saves him).
" you can check out this link and see that the same case can be made for device as well (go to 36 seconds):"
I know, that device can choose his position. Because every fucking sniper must change it. Its the main thing you need to do to be a good sniper. Simple does that too. I was talking about complete simple's team assist. They have told, that literaly everyone in navi tries to get that kill for him. Simple is the one, they want to keep alive as long as possible. So he trades, goes for eco frags, stays the last man standing. His stats are partly boosted by his team. but astralis players are all good. So there is no reason to play for one player like navi do.
Infact device has less kills to find, cuz his teammates at least are killing someone all the time.
VLOGS. This is the good source of info. I calculated probability of those vlogs being uncorrect. Percentage is realy low.
U can read it in my comment #201. I recalculated it once more, just to be sure. So the percentage, that those vlogs dont represent the reality is 0.5x0.5x0.5x0.5x0.5 (~3%). After that being said, I can consider vlogs as one on my sources.
As I said before. I still believe that simple can get #1 spot. I would not be surprised at all. The only reason im talking with all of you is, that I want to create a big thread. I want people to know, that this game is not only flashy kills.
