niko was by far better than device this year. You can't change my mind.
the only reason niko has these stats is because the team literally caters to his role. they depend on him to actually close out rounds, be a successful lurk. he hasn't done that all year though. failed constantly.
he's been a big reason for faze's failures this year, karrigan being the #2 reason. guardian and rain clearly lost their motivation because of this bs..
device > niko in 2018, no discussion.
Niko is the 2nd best player, but HLTV takes team achievements into consideration for an individual for some reason...
device's roles: awper , exit fragger , eco fragger , baiter
NiKo's roles : 2nd awper, IGL, entry fragger , lurker, refragger
