You can be the greatest of all time without being the best of all time. S1mple is clearly the best of all time, but he hasn’t achieved as much as dev1ce

No you can't because the fucking title implies they are the greatest player- therefore the best player.

funny how it has to be a 6 month stretch cause it fits your agenda. he was the best player for about 2 months of 2015. 2016-2017 he had about 4 months consecutively

I said maybe even less. I would say the best measure for this is probably tournaments but sorry i didnt pick your own favorite number. 2 months is nothing, and 2016-17 which 4 months?

dude first of all, flair checks out. only a thorin fangirl can be as brainded as you. look at accomplishments and contribution to the team. dev1ce has been top 5 for many many months. he is a major mvp, winner of 4 majors, intel grandslam, many many more accomplishments. there isn't even a debate here. dev1ce is THE GOAT. s0mple, ol0f, zywoo aren't even close to what he has done in the cs scene

lmao. your argument was: "how can GOAT be GOAT without ever being the best player in the world?" It doesn't matter if hltv gave him a title or not. you and your mom know that he was the biggest influence in Astralis' success in the last 3 years. and even on hltv, he has been top 5 multiple times but s1mple has a lot of cocksuckers so even without success, even with everyone seeing how much of a baiter and statpadder he is, analysts and casters talk about him like he's the best thing that has ever happened to csgo. i'm not saying he's bad. he just doesn't play for the team, he plays for himself. that's the opposite of dev1ce. but looking at your flair, your hate for astralis and dev1ce is just not going to open your eyes to him
2020-11-19 20:43
Maybe because his other individual achievements slightly outweigh the one individual achievement that he doesn't have (Top1)? Although it's probably because of Astralis, his stockpile of awards (both individual and as a team-player) are through the roof. He is most definitely NOT the Best of all time, but the greatest player of the tactical team-game called CS? Yes, there is a solid, logical argument for that, although debatable.

"it's probably because of Astralis" as if the other players won tournaments 1v5
2020-11-19 16:47
12 replies
Nope, that's not the point. When your team is performing so good as a whole (prime Astralis), you only have to be the best in your team to win the MVPs, since MVPs are almost always from the winning team, and since these MVPs are used in rankings, it kinda messes it up because of just this. Even if there's a 2 times more talented, more impactful, higher-rated player, simply because he wasn't in a great team, he couldn't win the tournament, and hence has a very low chance for MVP. Only real hard-carries to the finals have an MVP chance, even after losing. So yes, most of device's MVPs, especially the ones in 2018 and 2019 (which are almost all of his MVPs) are arguably because of entire Astralis being so good, rather than himself being a God, and of course, there's nothing wrong with that, per se.
2020-11-19 16:58

yes, it is the point. the vast majority of other GOAT contenders have also always had GOAT contending teams behind them. fnatic, nip, sk. somehow it wasnt because of the team when coldzera won his mvps even though he relied on the team to set him up way more than device. device has by a significant margin the most individual impact on that team. you could also do some more research before you start talking about a topic. all of device's mvps last year were really good and 100% deserved. and even when you take out 2018, he still has more mvp awards than for example niko. olof and cold got none outside of their team's dominant periods.

I agree with you on all these points, which is why I mentioned in my first comment, that there's a solid argument to designate him as the goat. I respect that. But, you'll never be able to convince anyone that he is the most skilled player/best individual player of all time (BOAT), simply because it's clear he's not that good individually, and that's exactly what I alluded to, in my 2nd comment. He's not the best of all time. About device being GOAT, there's a debate possible, only because of an argument that maybe he couldn't have been where he is, without a team as strong as Astralis. One contrasting example: s1mple, who needs only 3 players to shine brightly at the same time (s1mple+elec+flamie/perfecto/boomich) to take down any damn team, while device+magisk+dupreeh+jugi+snappi for example wouldn't even be a top10 team, and device wouldn't have his MVPs (Don't be mad, just an example. I didn't take Bubzkji+es3tag, because they are loads better than average players)

you didnt just compare "s1mple+elec+flamie/perfecto/boomich" to "device+magisk+dupreeh+jugi+snappi". device was the only player performing on that lineup and all the others were utter trash, ofc theyre gonna be bad. apparently elec isnt much better than the average player and boomich is average. youre just pulling shit out of your ass.

nah i can see what you mean, youre just extremely biased and say nonsense thats not anywhere near a fair comparison to prove your point. you probably think cold is closer to BOAT than device and is less "boosted" by his team. device wouldve still been a superstar in a team like north, cold probably not. btw im not saying device is the GOAT, its s1mple, im just trying to contrast him against the other contenders

Ohkay, whatever makes you happy, man. Maybe, I am biased. I will try to improve :)
2020-11-19 17:17
I wouldn't call any of them the absolute GOAT/BOAT, tbh :D It's a debate and that's where I rest my case. Some might be more deserving for the title than the others. For example, I consider s1mple and device as the only contenders for the GOAT title (device more than s1mple, till now), and s1mple, Niko, Cold, Xi Wu the only contenders for the BOAT title (personal opinion - s1mple more than the others). I wouldn't give the titles whole-heartedly to any of them, though I might be biased towards s1mple.

olof isn't my favorite player but whatever. If you actually watch CS, he wasn't the guy he was used to be after the injury. He still showed a bit flashes from time to time but late 2014 and 2015 olof was something else.
2020-11-19 17:00
3 replies
He wasn't something else. Guardian could've easily been #1 in that year, they had the same stats, olof only got #1 because of team achievements. Device had better stats that year btw and his team constantly destroyed Olof's fnatic. If TSM wins Cluj Nappoca that year, Device might've gotten #1. Some people are really biased and forget what happened. Olof's strengh was never his AIM, his strength was his playmaking and that's it. He is probably the most overrated #1 player we've ever had. I suggest you go back and watch some demos instead of creating a false narrative about your fav player.

I dont think olof is better than device. Im just curious because if you keep playing the game after problems with rsi you most likely not gonna be 100% fine. Rsi is hard to treat and usually surgery is the last resort as it kills other tissue and can lead to other problems and its usually just done if you have serious problems with pain.
2020-11-19 18:05
just classic excuses by olof apologists. even if olof fell off because of his injury, he still fell off and never came back.

True, the scene is different now ...- however you have to make the comparison based on how the player in question measured up against their respective peers, regardless of when they played ...

In reality device deserved top1 from 2015-2016 but hltv cucked him because Olof had more achievements at the time.

There's no GOAT. Different eras had different star and top players. You can say "XYZ is one of the best players" or something like that, but you can't say "XYZ is the best player of all time". It's overall kinda stupid to try and give one person the GOAT title in a team sport. No matter how unreal your skill is, you still need good teammates to achieve something. Prime examples being S1mple and NiKo.
