only such opinions deserve the full rating
+1 ecovice is a mediocre player.
not even close to any top 20 player.
This was obvious, he wasn’t even the best player on the team when he got top 2.
Who said he could? He is a very solid counter-strike player who thrives in a well oiled system not some superhero ala s1mple. dev1ce is basically the ultimate training product and very, very patient. s1mple, ZywOo etc are something else. Personally I respect prefer device calculated playstyle, but he is not as dominant as the other kind of players.
though being a s1mple fan, i dont think device's role should be compared to s1mple's or zywoo's. he was never a player to carry a team by his own, because he never needed to. but he surely performed his desired role very well. now when his team has gone a historical change, he needs to simply adjust to current roster, which may or may not be as that of s1mple's. so its not wise to compare device with s1mple or zywoo.
Your opinion is kinda right .. but sometimes you just want a teamplayer rather than hard carry .. like in old astralis
Set network to public now my device is exposed to hack
the best part is he doesn't care and he is gonna keep making racccckssss
Nice read after 3 games and yes hes style is different nothing new there. He is not used to play with 2 tier 4 players but not many are.
+1 but he is a great player , that in a good day he actually can hard carry like those guys
this is like "messi cannot anything without xavi and iniesta" xD
It's almost like all device does is holding angles with AWP and rotating the whole map when he gets a kill. His pistol aim is good but he could never be a hard carry for any non-Gold Nova team.
Put s1mple in place of d1vice, it will be the same. It's a team sport, not tennis.
Maybe he should start baiting like S1mple???
You smart, you very smart.
You a genius
I don't think Device was necessarily "exposed" for anything, this is nothing more than click-bait... Shame on you.
Before jumping to conclusions, imagine just how long Device has played with his former peers... Confidence, relaxation, the ability to succeed, always happy and knowing his team will succeed. Astralis were riding the coattails of success in 2018, nothing could stop them. Now stop to think about how detrimental it is to lose such comrades and friends you're so used to playing with for several years... Believe me, it's harder than you think.
Device now has to adapt and play with people he's never played with before, so his successes are obviously to be affected as a result of this. You're just pointing out the obvious and incorrectly labelling it to bait other HLTV users, which is not fair to Device.
Have a good day.
s1mple and zywoo use their teammates as decoy, they are all bait for them
yes because device totally didn't hard carry Astralis in 2016 :D
hes a good awper but in the astralis way of playing hes an amazing awper if you have the play style of device you are defo going to be better in a more stuctured, organized team rather than a bunch of standins mixed together
+1000 to author of this post
Cant wait for hin to add back his 2014 and 2015 play style
So he can go back to shitting on everybody
I don't even know why people compared him to s1mple/ZywOo
Everyone already knew this. He is a skilled systematic awper, he was never a player that was supposed to be a hard carry, he wasnt even an awper until they had Karrigan and Cajun just because nobody else apart from Cajun was even an AWPer
Dev1ce literally became a GOAT contender with a role he never really wanted to play, Dupreeh was even supposed to take the AWP after dev1ce came back from medical leave.
+1 there is something about it
he's still the GOAT
not saying device is as good as s1mple or zywoo, but this really isnt a fair comparison. i dont remember s1mple or zywoo having teammates play as bad as jugi, snappi and magisk are right now, lose their igl, have the system completely fall apart and carry like they usually do, especially not on this level of competition. device can totally hard carry and no, he definitely isnt mediocre. he is a top 5 individual of all time in csgo. i never understand why people see me say device is insanely skilled and can carry and immediately think im saying device is as skilled as s1mple, because id never say that.
8/8 Dev1ce is known choker
