its kind of a weird argument in that sense bcus a lot of it is how astralis plays. they make it so he will have the easiest shot possible (smart obv) and device always delivers. sure they are easy shots but he hits them everytime. personally i think hes the best ct awper ever to play, but as far as skill alone w the awp, obv not. i dont think any other awper would could replace device in astralis, but i dont think he could join another team and be as effective. SO as far as just showing up and doing the job, device is the perfect role. the s1mples and zywoos may be better with the awp, but they fit better into the star player role. (which is great news for s1mple bcus he has guardian now).
tldr: dev1ce is best in awp role
not best if awp star is needed LOL
