And now we need to think about if Zonic carried gla1ve.
Device most under rated player of all time. Easily one of the goats. If he comes back NIP top 3 EZ
TL:DR - Zonic carried entire Astralis
They were already trending downwards as a whole when Device left, they would've spiraled down regardless(probably a bit slower but anyways).
He is good player of course, but he wouldn't have kept Astralis alive if he had stayed
No one carried in Astralis.
Every player did their job.
i mean rn he's not playing at all, so you can't compare him to others.
Astralis didn't even find a t1 awper since device left... What's the base of this argument??
device was the literal definition of a backbone. im a fan of him since his early rifler days as my name shows.
he used to be that flashy hybrid player who could do everything but was inconsistent and dissapered a lot of times (semifinal chokers)
and he just transformed into a reliable , consistent backbone. i love his way of playing. no one back at the time had the idea of doing it this way (some exceptions like skadoodle etc) it was more like a guardian, fallen, kennys, jw, s1mple falshy type awper era. but he changed it. single-handedly with his team. thanks to him, the awp is where it is today.
+ i loved to see the styles clash in matches, him against aggro awpers etc. was always super cool. playing against this astralis back then was no fun. you face 4 insane riflers and when you were able to beat them all you had this awper in your face and you died. xd insane
astralis without device is bad, device without astralis is bad
reunite old astralis and see them fail now
they just had a good run and are nowhere close to that level anymore, all of them
so this doesn't make device not overrated
Made nip good, but brollan did them better
Why do people call him devve?
Just call him dev0ce, ecolai or botvice.
