you can be the best player in the world and still lose cause your team doesn't play as a great team.
astralis has a very high standard of coordination and teamwork, something which other teams simply don't have. device fits perfectly into the astralis machine, as he is much more of a support player than a star player, as everyone on astralis has the goal of supporting each other, rather than just device running around and killing people. the reason for why device is most commonly the highest rated player is because he naturally more skilled than his teammates, but because he doesn't abuse this skill as his main advantage over his enemies and instead uses it to support his team, he becomes much more of well-rounded player that allows him to win more and actually boosts his lesser skilled teammates as well.
zywoo as a player is more skilled, but because his team focuses around him as the star player they lose their own ability to play well and it actually becomes a detriment to the team when zywoo has to put up insane numbers because three other members are just decoys which are setting him up.
your point makes sense that device is superior to zywoo when you look at achievements, but you also have to look at the context of their teams and their ability to play with their teammates. could device potentially be even better if he took up a role like s1mple did in 2018-navi or zywoo does now in vitality right now? idk. what is clear is that they have two individual playstyles which somewhat adhere to their teams structure, but because astralis and device are more well-rounded it suits them a lot more. i believe that comparing s1mple and zywoo is a much fairer comparison because of the roles which they fill out in their teams, though its debatable when this should be, because right now navi looks like anyone could pop-off, rather than just s1mple hard carrying.
trophies and legacy > individual performance anyway
Remove device from astralis and you still have a solid tier 1 team
Remove zywoo from vitality and you have a dead team
-1 gets carried by drupeeh & clutch master.
