You failing my point if S1mple is the best player in 2018, I think totally deserves it! For me is the GOAT, is insane in skill!
But In my opinion, s1mple year was mark my his team bad performance and struggle I know that simple did everything he could I watched most of his games, that is why a think is the most skilled player ever, but device was in the top tier tournaments always fighting for the tittle, a much different scenario from what simple lived and he lived up to it!
I don't know if I did explained myself well, Astralis did helped device get the better year, but device is one of the reasons that Astralis had a great year, and is not like Astralis had a good year, they were in all levels better than the other teams!
If simple wants to be the best in the world, again in my point of view, he needs to support that with team achievements.
sorry for my english
