but you are crying
haha device bitch
+1 A hltv user not mentally damaged. Very true!
> you are the only one crying here
TOP20 is about individual skill, device is shit when he doesn't have his team helping him, s1mple plays like a god even when his team plays like shit(and his team always play like shit btw)
Top 20 is about skill and achievments, but mostly skills.
If you are undoubtabely the best player in the world, and you concretized it by winning titles, it would be unfair for you to be #2
"His stats never really applied to his real potential"
This is bait or I am allah
Cries about the rankings himself and then writes #cryisfree HAHAH! Wtf
mad dev2ce fan Pepega
Cry is free lul
pls @ me if you crying now
ofc you can say this.
look at it this way: best team is Astralis - no questions about it, because they won all of the titles they did while navi ended up 2nd at most (in big tournaments).
how ever, if you look at players rating, s1mple is ahead of dev1ce by far.
therefore if you look at team stats, no questions, dev1ce and ASTRALIS are the best.
if you look at personal stats, well, NaVi is trash without s1mple and s1mple is god with or without his team.
ps. im not a fan of any of those players.
s1mple literally carried his team to #2 ranking in the world. Without him NaVi wouldn't even be a top 10 team.
Device on the other hand has 4 good players around him and they have the best system in the world. Every time NaVi won a tournament S1mple was their best player. The same can't be said about Device. He was good but s1mple was a lot better than him.
Why do you even care enough to create this thread? :D
The only person crying here is you.
i only started beinga fan of simple when the device fanboys started claiming device was better. device isnt even better than magisk ffs. if astralis fans were smarter they would try and get the best player on the team the #1 spot
Truly apocryphal bait...
HLTV rankings are literally described to you on a silver platter and they are not "wrong" or "unfair" for literally being ranked by the players statistics themselves. This is nothing but your opinion and you chose to bait on HLTV for "humour".
Reported for just being an unkind person... Though your opinion respected.
Have a good day, friend.
s1mple's numbers speak for themselves and leave no room for debate as to who deserved to sit at the top of the ranking. He was by far the highest-rated player of 2018 at Big Events (1.34), standing out in practically every way and on both sides, averaging the best T-side rating (1.34) and the second-best CT-side rating (1.33).
The Ukrainian prodigy was ranked first for frags (0.87 kills per round), damage (87.4) and KDD (+1107), and had the third-lowest deaths per round ratio (0.59). He was simultaneously the best at opening up rounds, boasting the highest opening kills per round ratio at 0.14 and the highest opening duel success at 64.9%, and the second-best at closing them when left alone, racking up 75 clutches, only two fewer than Andreas "Xyp9x" Højsleth.
s1mple had no match in terms of consistency, however you look at it: round-to-round (76.0% KAST), map-to-map (86.5% of maps with above-average ratings) and event-to-event (1.19+ ratings at every tournament).
It is important to note that s1mple maintained a very high level in the latter stages of tournaments with a 1.30 playoff rating and a 1.27 Big Event final rating, both of which the highest of any player in the world.
