Let's just address the elephant in the room. There are different ways players approach the game when it's not going their way. You have people like niko, faze is losing he becomes super aggressive, he wants to create as much space as possible, and he doesn't give a shit if his rating is going to be low. You have players like device, who have their own roles, and who are doing their jobs despite of circumstances. And then you have simple, if navi is losing, he's doing everything to salvage his rating - that's why for example he has like 90%+ of his matches with 1+ rating, and that's huge in comparison to other players, even though simple has much lower win rate than them. When navi's winning and he's feeling confident, then he's rushing, trying to get as many kills as possible. But when they're losing and he's not feeling confident, then he's gonna try to save as often as it's possible, he's going to get positive rating even from exit kills. That's why on the starladder major he had the lowest death per round ratio, even though their win rate was like 50% lol. You can observe his opening kill attempts as well, usually he has like 20%+ attempts if he's playing well, but if his rating is about to be like around 1.1, then his opening attempts drop down to like 15%, because he wants to keep his kast high, he wants to have guns for the next round, what ultimately leads to having 90%+ 1+ rating and like 1.3 rating overall.
You can say that if he's not feeling confident, then it's normal to play more carefully, right? But it doesn't apply to any other players. Device had lans with below than his average ratings, and guess what, his opening attempts were almost always if not always 20%+, because he has certain role, he knows what his team wants from him. Same applies to zywoo. You see that they have certain structure, and it doesn't matter how bad or good they're playing, their roles are always the same. Meanwhile in navi, simple's playstyle decides about the structure.
So ask yourself a question, should you glorify a player, who's main objective is to get top1 on hltv, and get as good rating as it's possible? Of course, you cannot say he's hurting the team, or that he's bad, but the structure in navi surely has to be reworked. And when I gave u the guardian example, I wanted you to see that what navi achieved in 2018 was not such a big deal, especially when their previous lineup was able to achieve similar thing without having 1.3 rating players. If anything, having player like simple should make them much better than the previous iteration of their squad, but it's not possible as long as simple wont understand that he has to sacrifice his rating for the greater good.
