obv 2nd, why does it matter anyway
He's got too many MVP awards to be 3rd.
It will be 3.Niko 2.Dev1ce 1.S1mple
s1mple deserves #1 but ecovice will get it unfortunately
CLICK THE CAPS LOCK BUTTON AGAIN PLEASE -WHY ARE YOU YELLING?!!!
when will it be announced?
Honestly, I don't think mvps and trophies matter enough for dev1ce to be number one, but surely enough for him to be second. Achievements matter, but not as much as people make them out to do.
If for some reason Device is third, then s1mple #1 100%
Niko 3rd and he shouldn't even be 3rd, both electronci and dupreeh did more this year.
Niko in 3
But i don't know, which one in 1st place. S1mple or device
S1mple better at rating, but device better at archivement
at this point everyone could be #1 if i look the top20 so far, its complete bullshit .
The thing is, Niko and Device are pretty similar stat wise, this is a fact.
But... Device has quite a fair amount of MVP's while Niko does not.
This means that though the stats suggest they are pretty even, that might not really be the whole picture, Device has actually been the better player throughout the year.
Of course you could say "well simple does not have that many MVP's but he will still be top 1"
That might be true, could also be the case that it isn't, point is that with simple there is no argument that he isn't more mechanically skilled than Device.
Where as throughout the year you could argue that what Device and Niko has shown is pretty similar, and combined with Device having quite a fair amount of MVP's this does give him the clear advantage.
(I have tried to be as objective as possible)
Now ending comment (my own subjective thoughts)
Somehow I kinda hope Device gets nr.1 even though I know it most likely won't happen as this might be the last real shot he has at nr. 1 spot (not because he is bad or can't improve, but because of all the talent in the pro scene and players like simple, elec and other really skilled players)
Should Device end up in 3rd place that would be a real scandal, because nothing really speaks for him being in 3rd place instead of 2nd place.
And before you comment stop with the "HLTV is a danish site so of course they will be subjective"
If you seriously believe that, then you must not know CS or how HLTV works.
