Device has good aim

He does. It's not Niko level but when people think he is actually a poorly skilled player that's honestly pretty crazy. The guy can headshot and flick, just doesn't attempt it too often because he doesn't need to.

I doubt he would've come this far without being an actual skilled player mate, people just like to hate.

how far did he come? he ended up on astralis just by luck and now he is getting carried by dupreeh and magisk who are one the most skilled players ever and a 200 iq igl.

Yet he gets the mvps
2019-12-14 21:44
stats != impact but hltv is too stupid. hands out countless mvps to the trash awper who farms kills while camping angles. device gets a lot of frags on his good tournaments, but those frags are not the difference maker. the rounds are always decided by early contribution from dupreeh/magisk and of course xyp clutches sometimes.

Device probably has the most opening pics my dude
2019-12-15 03:11
I'm not saying device isn't skilled, but his opening kill rating comes from getting early AWP kills on the ct-side. He's never usually running into sites and headshoting people like Magisk and dupreeh.

You said his frags weren't the difference maker. He literally carries their ct side with opening pick after opening pick allowing his team to have 5v4s. This does not happen with a lower skilled player
2019-12-17 20:04
When did I ever say his frags weren't the difference-maker? I'm just saying his opening kill rating is not the reason why device is skilled because of how inflated that stat is. He is skilled for other reasons.
2019-12-17 22:49
Sure he sometimes looks like he's just camping but he is actually pretty damn mobile and hard to read. And unlike many others he just doesn't make stupid decisions and go for a push just because he's in the mood.

I feel the same, we as the fans and viewers enjoy these explosive games etc but i feel like him and jame have a little bit boring playstyle but at the same time they are both really smart.
2019-12-09 01:15
If you put up the numbers as Jame or Device, there is no need to change your playstyle though. They get smart kills instead of highlight kills, which makes them different. I fully agree with you though.

Niko is 90% crosshair placement 10% aim just like device. Both only holding angles and prefiring. No flicks like s1mple or Zywoo.
2019-12-09 01:29
All this kid does is just hold a gay ass off angle with his deag and one clicks people in the side of the head CT side. Fucking terrbile player tbh.....1.4 sensitivity 400dpi using trashcan. Anyone who uses a low sens does not have the dexterity to properly play FPS games on PC.

All the shitty baiters use a low sens to click people in the back of the head, or they are equally worthless and use the telescope gun and one click people in the body. I bet this kid doesn't even play FFA DM's cuz he'd throw his arm out of his socket checking corners. When was the last time you've seen Niko popflash through a smoke, and flick too two people to open up a site??? All this dude does is hold shift and prefire common angles. like wow dude, ur fucking nuts. you can have parkinsons disease and play on 1.4 sens if ur just baiting and clicking heads on common angles.

Device has some of the best aim in the game. As far as I'm concerned him and Elige are the most complete players in the game in terms of brains, positioning, clutching etc. These two in particular show how much the other aspects of the game past your mechanics actually matter in being a top tier volume fragger. Also sorry for bringing up Elige in a Device thread I'm not trying to take his shine. What I am trying to say is that if you want to watch demos or you are a legitimately talented young player these are the two you should probably be watching.
2019-12-09 01:40
Strong post
2019-12-13 23:27
No one can disagree on Elige being an amazing player! He should be in the top3 this year, imo.
2019-12-13 23:29
Yeah all the youngsters should watch device demos. The guy that couldn’t do shit when t1 scene was the toughest and was choking all day. But look what happens when there is no competition and you have a team with 4 top20 players and a GOAT coach.

2019-12-15 20:15
Yes. I agree. ELIGE is one of the most skilled player to touch the game.. But what sets device much ahead of EliGE is the control over Emotions. ELiGE gets carried away by his emotions and have to work hard calm down and be better

That just makes Elige a slightly less developed version of Device as that was his exact problem. Which is sort of my point. Similar career trajectories just on different weapons. Both gods of the game right now.

I really admire Elige, he makes so many nice pays and so many multi kills, but I think the mental thing going on in Liquid is somewhat equally problematic for most of the players on there, not just Elige, he is usually pretty consistent compered to he's compadres when things go bad. The whole who is #1#2#3 etc.. he is definitely one of the players who have impressed most this year. So a top #3 imho, lets see how it ends up, but he can be proud of this year for sure.

No question. Liquid as a whole has got some shit to work out. But Elige has been their constant this year. The one who really blossomed. .8 kpr is an elite stat. Either way know that past all the Denmark/NA laugh threads the mutual respect goes both ways. Astralis drives me crazy but I love their consistency. I hope Liquid learns that one day AND stays together. If they do there is nothing stopping them but themselves from being the next Astralis.

I have seen Astralis tilt a little at the ESL Finals in Odense, I was there in the audience, it was painfull. But this happens more to liquid when they are not confident, they get into a mode where they make lots of mistakes. Same can be said for EG, when things go bad, they usually go worse than they "have to". Would love to see some development in map pools for all top teams to keep it exciting, Liquid mentioned that this is a goal for them. Worst thing is, we will have to wait for like 2 months before we got the major, so looking forward to seeing some new stuff after all the teams finally have time to develop some.

Why would he flick when he got all the enemies in his crosshair. Ironically insane flicks usually come from bad crosshair placement.

I feel like good flicks come more often from poor positioning, like when you leave yourself open to too many angles so you have to flick to a seperate one

Those ignorant boomer Nerds who claim Dev1ce is only camping and “90% crosshair placement ...”, obviously have *never* seen Any Astralis game ... Device Can make flicks when he needs to, however, most The times he just outright outsmart opponents and another thing is his mobility and game sense, no other awp’er is as good as Dev1ce when it comes to mobility .... To say that Dev1ce only became good when Astralis was formes ? Child, please ... Dev1ce was a cs prodigy from an early age ...
