i love you bro, dont let these haters get you down. You're the second best player of all time in csgo after s1mple.

His confidence seemed very bad, especially at CT Side on Overpass, he kept dying from people in his back and he never tried to take any aggressive peeks or take initiative and his rifling was very underwhelming aswell, i hope he does better against Liquid tomorrow and maybe he can get some confidence back since he loves destroying Liquid))

Olof, KennyS, Guardian and Get_Right were easily way better players than this boosted kid. Idk why people even compare someone who literally forced valve to patch their game with someone who only played in a good team.

Olof who had 1, maybe 2 good years? Same with guardian and gtr? Device has been in top5 6 years in a row XD
2021-11-26 16:34
zywoo, he got top1 for the only 2 years he competed at a high level, and hes likely to get somewhere in the top 3 this year, while device is lucky for top 10

Feels bad to see him on the verge of tears, hope NIP can work it out and dev1ce do better

2021-11-26 18:37
While their lineup is pretty solid, I think people have overhyped them a bit too. Device himself isn't going to make them a title contender when the team around him is a low end top 10 team at best.

There is enough firepower in that team to take top 3, they already did. BUT they need to find a solid T side and , i dont know, fucking confidence.

As an overall player in CSGO esports, device is the GOAT. His achievements, both individual and as a teamplayer, are unrivalled in CSGO.

Astralis is GOAT, dev1ce....... nope, and the whole NiP thing was to determine the same thing, dev1ce wanted to show he can do it outside Astralis, and well, He can't.

device is going past his prime now, he's 26. When he was beasting in 2015-2018 even with rifles, I'm sure you weren't around at all. This herd mentality where people start saying something about a player and so you start believing it without even thinking about it, is kinda pathetic. device has 7 Top20 placements, 6 Top5 in a row, and 5 Top3, in addition to 19 MVPs and 2 Major MVPs. He front-ran NiP to the only LAN victory since 2017, being the MVP himself. Even at 26, device is amazing.

I was around at that time, not as a hltv user XD. I know his rifling was insane and he picked awp because of team requirements, but he wasn't an individual like s1mple, Niko or zywoo, who can carry their team to victory, who can defy the logic of "this is the better team strategically". As far as achievements go, again, Astralis is the GOAT, but not dev1ce. I would go with s1mple if I had to choose GOAT till now, and see what future holds. I can sum up the mvps for u, if u are bound to win the tournament, u just have to be best player in your team and very likely you get mvp. How about dev1ce wins mvp of a tournament his team lost? never happened

device did hard-carry many times, with him alone going +30 while his entire team was negative. That was Astralis/TSM/CPH Wolves before gla1ve and zonic came in. People don't remember that now. s1mple and ZywOo might have won MVPs of events that they lost, cuz they are just a different breed of players. 2 of a kind. In the greatness discussion, ZywOo is not even a contender as of now. As for s1mple, I would say s1mple is the best player in the history of CSGO, objectively speaking: I don't think s1mple's GOAT either, as explained in that thread. But yeah, he's a strong contender imo.

There we can find some agreement, and dev1ce was a vital part of Astralis success, I don't usually talk about this cause people are already head over heels for dev1ce. In the era, their strongest contender was liquid and the matches were always very fun to watch, cause of two ideologies colliding, Astralis played for the untradable kills using utility and awp. They'll either flash u, or make u push smoke, or get u to half health, everytime it seemed like their team is taking a fight where they have all the advantage. while everyone was copying Astralis, some people stuck to their guns, like liquid, they went with an exact opposite ideology "every kill must be traded" you can see it in the matches, their trades were on point and their individuals were sharp. Demos can be watched so utility was matched in a few months, and the deciding factor of this "immovable object vs unstoppable force" was the awper dev1ce. Awp is still a weapon which is best for getting that untradable frag even after figuring out the util, Liquid had no answer to dev1ce. s1mple still has one of the best storylines in csgo, his skills and personality just makes for the spiciest combo in csgo history.

dev1ce is a good player, but his performance back in the day when he was still in Astralis was by no means a solo achievement. Astralis had such a good structure that he could rely on his teammates and have the freedom to do his thing. NIP just isn't there yet. Their roster is going through changes as well so in my eyes it will be quite some time before we see past dev1ce come back online. As far as his decision to leave Astralis for NIP goes - everybody needs a change. Whether it was for good or bad now he has to bear with it and keep going. I don't judge his reasoning for leaving - it was exciting news all the same. Also the Astralis era was one of the most boring eras. They were unbeatable and it felt boring watching their games, competitive wise. Despite the fact that their teamplay was beautiful to watch, it killed watching competitions for me. I like the way things are now - many exciting roster changes and interesting matches to watch.

well it's not Astralis 2018/19 and NaVi 2021 fault that good players keep holding on to incredibly shitty projects for years instead of banding together to make better teams. If the best players in the world actively tried to play together instead of having 2 or 3 bots on their team you wouldn't have hopeless "top tier" teams like FaZe, Vitality, Liquid, BIG, MOUZ and G2. There could be at least 3 more superteams with NaVi level firepower and a good enough IGL that might actually beat NaVi but instead everyone keeps sitting on their ass cashing in on shitty teams

Navi are currently dominating, but at least they still have competition - Heroic and perhaps Gambit when they get used to LAN. Besides those there are up and coming teams which could be unpredictable as well - namely Astralis (scary both on paper and in reality so far, maybe besides x9p who is still inconsistent and Lucky who seems to be a valid rifler but lacking with the AWP), but G2 and Vitality could also be solid. NA is broken and will attempt a rebuild, hopefully not with new washed up players, but it would also be exciting to see. tl;dr: It's a great time for CS right now. If NA can make a comeback it would be even more thrilling, so let's hope for the best.

Device should just buy out his own contract and go back astralis. On other hand I don't get what stops lucky from awping because with gla1ve awping it's practically 4v5 since he neither does gla1ve plays or creates space with awp like device did

man, I think putting lucky on rifle was a good decision, many high rated awpers get hired and I haven't seen many who hit the ground running in tier1 cs. It's good experience at the very least, his rifling is solid, the ace with ak on inferno, the 4k with famas + usp, he is doing much better, and I think once he gets a bit more comfortable on this level of csgo, he will be able to provide the awper their team needs. Awp requires mechanically less skill than a rifle but better positioning and decision-making, that's exactly what new players lack at tier 1, decision-making, starting with rifle and then switching to awp, sounds like a better move (like broky).

No hate only respect from me to dev1ce. I think I can agree with the fact that he was and still is one of the best in the world. Take the Astralis era, if you say dev1ce wasn't a huge part of that era then idk who can. Astralis had perfect structure, from strats to the players themselves. They were so reliable so that enabled Dev1ce to do his thing without costing the whole round and he was good at it. So conclusion, I still think he's one of the best.

I wonder after 3 years of NiP contracts ends he will go back to Astralis? I really hope he does to back in the old team. It would make Astralis so strong that they can get back on old form with dev1ce and can actually compete against other teams like Navi, Vitality, Gambit & Heroic like Astralis old days.
2021-11-26 12:34
He just destroyed his own career so.. Many people can say he left because Astralis were struggling this year but they've been in a way worse situations back then but still came back

Didn't he sign 3 years contract with NiP? Really wished he stayed in Astralis till the end and won 1-2 more majors with this new team with adding blameF, K0nfig. It definitely feels like this new Astralis team has a lot of potentials to get back into top10 or top5.

Do u really think 26 yo player with most individual/team achievments who won 4 majors cares about winning? he just wants to play for additional few years while getting good salary XD U have no clue what was going on inside the team so why u say he could've stay.
