Look I can only recommend you to check the rankings of the last 2 years. In 2018 device had 2-3 more MVPs than s1mple, Astralis dominated the whole year, won tier 1 tourneys like ECS Finals, EPL Finals,..., won the faceit major and device was the MVP. Still s1mple got the #1 spot. Why? Because THE MAIN CRITERION is rating 2.0 at big events (relative to the number of played maps). It has always been like this.
I don't say s1mple will be 100% #2 this year, it could also be device since the difference of rating 2.0 is not as high as in 2018 and device has more individual achievements. But device being top 1 is literally impossible due to ZywOos's ratin, and his 4 MVPs, two of which he got even though Vitality lost
