probably starting to realize that the astralis system really helped him play well

No, he hard-carried Astralis. Just a bad tournament.

yes,astralis is worse without him, and he is worse without astralis. My take is that astralis and device were perfect together

Yeah thats true, for some reason I assumed your reply was the opposite of #44 without reading it, but my point of people saying Dev1ce is either shit or the GOAT still stands
2021-09-09 19:49
"a player is worse in a worse team, in a team-oriented game" shocker
2021-09-09 19:59
Wtf a good take on hltv
2021-09-09 20:16
Astralis is worse because they are all washed up/less motivated...I think you forgot how good Magisk was :) He has 1.02 rating now, in 2018/2019 he had 1.17 rating and 1.13/1.16 vs top 5 opponents (one of the highest in the world back then)

Just the specifics of Dev1ce performing bad on NiP, people everywhere seem to think he is fraud system player or just in really bad slump when its probably just a tiny mix between the two

Dude, we has the star on Astralis and Awper (All Awpers have the best kd and stats), but hard carry ? Dude You cant carry a team to be 3 times major champs, All in Astralis did their job well, From Glaive IGLing, Dupreeh was on fire on entry, Xyp9x the clutch king and who was the other guy :P just kidding Magisk as well he was good :)

Yeah device is a good player, even great, but they overpraised him. Device can rely on astralis's teammates. I'm not sure right now. They don't play as a unit.

This tournament for NiP and from my expectations was better than it should have. they should have never passed Group stages, Furia just got unlucky in that game against Entropiq in the beginning and lost 15-11 lead against Liquid on map 3 and that cost them everything

True. All I can say is, you guys need to set up more around Device and not just rely on Hampus and Rez to break open rounds for you guys. Like... Its an awp meta ffs. And Nip has one of the most consistent awpers ever! Like... COME ON!

They set him up sometimes i just feel like his mentality is so fucked up, i rarely see him going for risky peeks or like jumping on Catwalk at Mirage to get a kill, same thing for T Side i feel like he does better with a Rifle than a Awp currently

A few bad series in comparison to being one of the most consistent players ever? Device has only been dropping off form this past month, before then he has been fine and is still the highest rated player on NiP. Everybody is bound to have a bad spat on occasion.

+1 Rez out fragging him is a concern but I'm sure Device will comeback stronger! This is Mr Consistency we are talking about! Nicolai has got this for sure!

Yeah, it was all about REZ in that series. ^^
2021-09-09 20:50
Don't know if he's doing all this for sympathy, but he surely did get mine
2021-09-09 19:51
Pretty difficult to play in a (NiP) team without real strategies … Hampus being too busy wanting frags and entrying, and not really filling his role as Igl … Currently NiP strategies are predicated on several players performing individually at peak in order to win … add to that, that Device seemingly has to play alot of different roles, without really getting The opportunity to play where he is Best … I mean … Mirage ? Even though Device Can play The map, Astralis didn’t play it as much … Watching NiP play their “puggy-style” is difficult to watch LOL

Dev1ce is fine on Mirage, but the NiP system NEEDS every player to perform, its not like Astralis that even when Dev1ce did bad they could win rounds because it was alot more tatical and utility based strategies, on NiP its way more clutches and multi-frags, i swear to god 80% of their wins on T Side is someone getting kills they shouldnt have got
2021-09-09 19:58
device, dude, you need to prove nothing. hltv.org/player/7592/device relax. getting better is good and all but do not set expectations so high, your reality changed, NIP is not a top team yet and you are just 1/5 of the team, not jesus to make miracles.

Astralis: sets up dev1ce's stats with high quality teamwork dev1ce: carries Astralis due to the need of a supportive AWPer in that certain system Astralis can play without dev1ce, and vise versa

man I hope he gets well mentally, it is pretty sad, good luck to him
2021-09-09 20:05
He has a 1.17 rating against top 10 even with this ESL 14 showing, 1.03 last 3 months. Just .92 vs top 5 last 3 months.
2021-09-09 20:10
Dude has one bad tournament and everyone turns against him. Obviously dude is not 100% mentally
2021-09-09 20:09
Also Plopski and LNZ <
2021-09-09 20:11
He has a bad time right now, mentality can screw you up a lot. It was still a solid finish for NIP, considering how stacked EPL was.
2021-09-09 20:32
Look like his gf broke up with him and this is really sad because he left astralis only for one reason: his girlfriend he left astralis to move to sweden and life with his gf, and not having to travel all the time now his gf broke up with him, dude he literally have to feel like shit, i really feel sorry for him feelsbadman
