i think he is good mechanic yes
would let him work on my 1997 corsa batmobile 👍👍👍
His skills are underrated, can use rifle as much as a rifler
Irrelevant since CS is not just about mechanical skill and there are many different types of playstyles.
Pure mechanics, let’s say flicking, crosshairs placement, aim, headshot ability.
s1mple, NiKo, ZywOo, Twistzz, EliGE are clearly better. But I would say he is below them so around 6-9th in terms of pure mechanical skill. People forget he was a top tier rifler in TSM and was known as a aimer who just headshots people for fun. There are clips of him last year and 2018 with rifles where he is 1 tapping people.
True there are better mechanical players, but there's alot more to CS. For example in a 1v1 xyp vs simple I'd bet on xyp
Comparablke to Niko. Both crosshair placement abusers.
Friberg is clearly better but not bad.
Impossible to tell, but he couldn't be top5 player for 5 years if he wasn't excellent
he is really good like top8 player aimwise, people just hate him because he is not as good as zywoo, s1mple or Niko
some people just look at aim
mechanical skills scream is the best , most of pros says so
you have to realized that he probably isn't top 100 in mechanical skill, positioning is just as important.
Similar style to NiKo IMO but more clean. He could prob tap everyone and his positioning is 10/10.
mechanics aren't that important in tactical shooters
definitely not top20.
just consider guys like elige, brollan, brehze etc
adds up quickly to a top20 list.
dev1ce is only top5 because astralis was so dominant and he's the statpadding awper.
we will see how quickly he'll be out of top20 after astralis' downfall.
>Raw mechanical skill
Around top10. He doesnt display it as much due to how his team is playing and his role in the team. Definitely underrated in terms of mechanics.
his mechanics are very calm and precise. there is no unnecessary movement going on.
flashy aim is just less reliable in the most cases
He is so good with every weapon. He is the most consistent player of CSGO until now.
s0mple and zywho are baiters! The whole team plays for them and they bait for kills but in devices case is the opposite. He plays for the team, he is the one who supports the team and thats why he doen't get a lot of rounds with multiple kills.
s0mple and zywho get at least two exit frags in every round they loose and at least one in every round they win.
pretty good, he just isnt flashy hence some people think he has mediocre aim.
Being smart is also mechanical skill
And his aim is pretty good even without holding angles
the thing with dev1ce is that he never misses the easy shots
I would put in terms of just pure mechanical skill (with rifles specifically) these guys ahead of him.
After that I think it's kind of a hodgepodge of guys like him, Dupreeh, Rain, Ethan, Krimz etc
So quite good actually. But his strength is in repositioning, decision making and game sense.
Which isn't a bad thing Mr. Danes. In fact it was a huge factor in Astralis becoming the best team of all time.
In terms of AWP play he's no lower then fifth at worst. Zywoo, Kenny, Simple and then maybe guys like Woxic and Cerq. He's a beast.
Are we talking about raw skill or mechanical skill?
Mechanical skill is something you can train, raw skill isn't you either have good hand eye and fast reactions or you don't.
He has the game mechanics down so perfectly that it makes his play look almost effortless and helps him remain as probably the most consistent professional player ever. He doesn't play flashy, doesn't go for mad flicks, he just frags and wins rounds and games.
