Honestly it looks like it, and I'm not even blaming him. 4 majors, 2x mvps and more LAN mvp's. He has an abundant career, doesn't even have to play for more. But he can at least fulfill for something on his NiP contract

i mean in fairness it was not even a rivalry S1mple was pretty much always the Better Awper what Dev1ce had in his advantage was a much better team for most of this time individually S1mple had more of an impact for his team

yeah but that was the story of the rivalry after all. That this 'superior' player S1mple could not achieve the dynasty that dev1ce was a huge part of. The idea was what was the perfect way to AWP, the passive and practical dev1ce style or the flashy and explosive CS of s1mple. It sucks that dev1ce hasn't been able to replicate that form with a different team

i preferred S1mple because in his peak form he was fucking Lightning the way you want to see the Awp played a real throwback to KennyS pre Awp Nerf

Yeah I think most people would say so save Astralis fans/Danish fans/people who dislike S1mple as a personality. Its just an inherently more exciting playstyle because there's so much more potential for unexpected highlight reels whereas with Dev1ce you largely can anticipate how the round pans out, though it's still been exciting to see Dev1ce hit streaks of shots against multiple players at once

Bad idea imo. Randomness helps to find out who's actually better IGL or better player with the ability to adapt to circumstances given to him. Its kinda stupid if you could run a certain strat or do a certain play at any given round.

my disappointment is not that 'good teams' didn't make it through, its that good teams didn't do well enough. cloud9 did not look like a major winner, G2 haven't looked like a top 5 team in months, Vitality hasn't looked like a top 5 team this year, Astralis doesn't even look like top 10, Outsiders is in disarray atm.

No fucking shit, my statement is simple, they haven't looked like top 5 in months and you seem to literally agree so I don't understand why you're malding over something so impossible to obfuscate the meaning of. "but my god people act like they lost to imperial or liquid or some other shit team, the 3 teams they lost to were top 10 teams" Yes. They haven't looked like a top 5 team, with how the 3 teams they lost to were top 10 teams. I will say it for the fourth time then to clarify. They haven't looked like a top 5 team.

are you inbred? they have not played a tourney with this full roster till this major, they had amanek as igl at esl last month and that was the first tourney where they could have actually played together until aleksi and xtqzz got covid and amanek had to stand in. literally putting impossible expectation onto them and then shit talking them when they dont meet them, typical braindead child mindset. good job either trying to gaslight by changing the facts or confidently being that wrong and stupid saying incorrect facts acting like theyre true. your disappointment is entirely your own fault. no real fan expected them to be winning tourneys without any real experience playing together. no wonder you guys let your government get outta hand, cant even get educated about basic cs shit

Did you not watch IEM Katowice genius. Tell me what difference in the roster you spot when you carefully examine G2's run through that tournament. If you spot one I'll venmo you my month's salary Only on HLTV can you find the 1 G2 fan in the world who is somehow extremely excited and impressed by the result G2 have shown up this year. They literally recruited all these pieces to topple the giant and 4 months in it's looking worse than ever. Your stance doesn't even make sense as a G2 fan?Who the hell cheers on their favorite team's ability to perform significantly worse than before.
