Video: device - MVP of IEM Chicago

Radoslaw "MAKKU" Makuch has put together a highlight reel with some of Nicolai "device" Reedtz's best moments in Chicago.

The 23-year-old earned the tenth MVP award by HLTV.org and betway of his career after helping Astralis win the first edition of IEM Chicago. The Dane's performance was consistent throughout the tournament, averaging a 1.15 rating after a total of 13 maps.

device and his tenth MVP medal in Chicago

device was not the highest-rated player of the event, but he was a key figure for Astralis, especially in the playoffs, during which he boasted a 1.19 rating. The Danish AWPer was also featured in three categories of stats leaderboards: kills (248), AWP kills (103) and KDD (+41).

Press play below to watch the video produced by our own Radoslaw "MAKKU" Makuch, who compiled the best plays from device at IEM Chicago.

Cause the 2-nd guy wrote his comment at 13:15. The 1-st one was before him at 13:15, but he edited it at 13:16. So that's why it is written 13:16

"much (more) better than s1mple" ....... like does this Ruski Astralis fanboy have no shame in making ridiculous statements like these?????? I'm not even a fan of s1mple, but he is just leagues above everyone else (when he's in form, of course, which seems to be every fucking match the guy plays this year). Only one who can perhaps match him is NiKo, who is imo just as insane but can't seem to keep up that godlike level as often.

The most undeserved MVP in HLTV history. They’re just doing this in order to give him the #1 at top20 at the end of the year. He was not even the best player of his team, god dammit! Passive awper, that never clutches. Undeserved. He’s only high rated currently because his team is on the top.

2018-11-15 15:50
Have you been looking at this thread? Most of us here are siding with the Brazilians on this one....this MVP video is full of eco and exit frags ffs. I don't think device is as bad (as in playstyle and impact) of a player some people make him out to be but holy hell, if the clips in this video aren't statpadding, I don't know what is. fyi, xyp9x would have been my pick for the MVP.
2018-11-15 16:43
Nice try, fakeflagger newfag. device was not even the best of his team on the tournament. This MVP is being all about increase his chances to be #1 at the end of the year, as MVP medals count a lot when it comes to HLTV top20. He's definetely not the MVP of IEM Chigago, neither is the best 2018 player.

Hltv explained their exact reasoning on why device received major mvp You do realize simple has 2 tier 3 mvps right?
2018-11-15 17:04
+1 mvp stolen from xyp9x
2018-11-15 18:18
Yes if anybody it was xyp9x he stole it from I am pretty sure he didnt get it because of his overall rating being too low though
2018-11-15 18:49
This video is shorter than s1mple mvp blast video, and device played more games

2018-11-15 20:20
Legit garbage MVP award, it's hard to prevent bias even if you do your best to be objective. But literally 90% of the thread is pointing out that people see right through this bullshit achievement for what it really is. Kinda makes these awards lose tons of value and merit.
2018-11-15 20:30
90% are plebs with no real understanding of the game, therefore irrelevant

Dev1ce isnt as skilled as s1mple he just has a really good team and coach thats built around him s1mple is defenitly the most skilled though
2018-11-16 05:45
A lot of people are complaining that dev1ce doent deserve mvp but who does then? Astralis almost never has someone hard carrying and dev1ce is the main name for astralis, maybe xyp9x deseved it, imo he is best clutcher

I love device and I hate his brainless haters, but here xyp got robbed. I hope politics stay out from the csgo scene. xyp good stats, not so different from devve’s, but huge impact especially in the do-or-die match against fnatic. he literally saved astralis from elimination on inferno, 100% KAST in the comeback rounds and a clutch in round 30, when was 14-15 . I mean WTF!
2018-11-16 07:54
