device claims EPL Season 8 Finals MVP award

MIRAA
December 9th, 2018 21:24

Nicolai "device" Reedtz is the winner of the Most Valuable Player (MVP) award of the ESL Pro League Season 8 Finals by HLTV.org and betway.

The 23-year-old claimed the honour after averaging a team-leading 1.26 rating in Astralis' title-winning campaign in Odense, the fourth-highest overall.

Keith "NAF" Markovic, who boasted a 1.31 tournament rating, was leading the race for the MVP award after the first two maps of the final, but slided out of contention towards the end of the series as device picked up the pace on Inferno and Dust2.

device wins his seventh MVP medal of 2018

The Danish AWPer was Astralis' top player in the group matches against ViCi and HellRaisers, reaching peak performance levels once again in the semi-finals as he powered his team to a 2-0 victory over mousesports with a 1.75 rating.

device, who was in the top five in eight stats leaderboards, leading the charts for total opening kills (49), has now claimed his 12th MVP medal, the seventh of 2018. His previous accolades this year came at the ECS Season 5 Finals, ELEAGUE Premier, the FACEIT Major, BLAST Pro Series Istanbul, IEM Chicago, and the ECS Season 6 Finals.

It's hard to judge with niko and s1mple since faze is an inconsistent shitshow at the moment and navi is just s1mple baiting everyone and elec baiting everyone except s1mple because that's the only way they know how to win, device is in the best system of all time so it's hard to judge who is a better player but for this year 100% he gets 1# and if he doesn't it's rigged

SO device played well in tournament, but bad on 2 maps and good on 1 in final, naf played better in group stage, better in map 1 and 2 and decent in map 3. Explain your logic apart from “ASTRALIS WON FINAL” bullshit which doesn’t mean anything if the player didn’t contribute much to winning the final. Device played bad in the final, so winning the final can’t be an excuse, naf played decent in the final, better hen device, but even before the final naf had a higher rating

No. NAF had a ~0.03 better rating than device this final and he lost. Remember why HLTV made an exception with s1mple? Because he fucking dominated.

Eventho I agree the prize is awarded by the whole thing not just the finals, the MVP always comes from the winning team, that being said, if they had not win, the whole performance would not matter for this MVPship. So I agree with the ones that feel it as an underserved prize, my personal pick from Astralis would be gla1ve as he has merit beyond his stats, as the IGL, or Xyp.

Having such thing as MVP is stupid itself, since most of the highlights are performed while other players keep an eye on other spots, the weapon could be dropped, and I also could add damage and flash assists which is in one word called teamplay. There are strong players, yes, but this is not the only ingredient of success in this game

Though MVPs still exists and is based on individual performances. And my point still stands, not one of these HLTV users is at any point more qualified than Petar or Striker to decide the MVP of a given tournament.

But his team didn't win. If you are going to get the mvp, when not winning the tournament then you will have to do 1.5 rating or something and reach finals like simple. Therefor the MVP for the best rated Astralis player in this tournament is fully deserved! Stop crying

Unless you do something extraordinary like simple has done previously.. Did NAF have a good tournament? yes. Did NAF win the tournament? no. Did NAF do something extraordinary? no. Therefore its fully deserved and undebateable that the MVP went to Device.

he didnt play awful. he usually got a kill in every duel he took. played like an anchor. didnt go for plays. didnt go for eco frags. he was still holding his own during gun rounds. he was better than device during the whole tournament. he wasnt the greatest at the finals but he was still better than device and more consistent throughout all 4 maps unlike device. he was also the only player with device that had mvp contention.

In the final yes, but tournament mvp no. Can you please see across tournament and not just at 1 match. Deep sigh!
2018-12-09 22:16
Entrying with rifles is harder than with an awp. Dupreeh may not have been robbed this time, but he has been in the past
2018-12-09 21:32
???? You get opening kills with the awp but nobody plays entry on executes with one lmao
2018-12-10 01:46
You misunderstood what i said completely.
2018-12-10 22:27
entrying is done almost exclusively with rifles so I'm not really sure what you mean
2018-12-10 23:19
You are still missing the point completely. what i am saying is that it generally is harder to frag with rifles than it is with an awp. Plus AWP kills tend to be setup by other players from the team helping the awper. The fact that the awp is 4750$ and a one shot one kill rifle, you are expected to frag more. If you look at awp'ers in the top20 they are heavily represented. in fact, too much. Just look at MSL going from the lowest fragging player in the top CS scene taking an awp for ONE tournament and gets MVP. Or you could look at what dupreeh did when he got the awp when device was sick. He made crazy highlights, particularly the two back to back rounds on mirage against Sk. These examples say a lot about the awp in regard to its effectiveness. My point? Rifle fragging is generally harder and thus there should be somekind of handicap on the awp in terms of ranking. :=)
2018-12-11 19:57
Alright I agree with your point as you explained it here I was just thrown off by "entrying"
2018-12-12 02:34
Nice :=)
2018-12-12 09:40
I totally agree, this guy butters the organizers so much I guess, that's why he gets these mvp. He is a noobest awper, little okay with pistols and assaulting. But we saw many took ace, clutches. I think xp9x and Dupreeh needs to argue on this. Totally unfair.

If you cannot base it on the final, then check the stats hltv.org/stats?event=3376 Where is device? Number 4 only. MVP is a team result or personal result?
2018-12-10 12:47
You must be trolling or a special kind of stupid, because NAF was not good enough to win the MVP, without winning the final and device was by far the best player from Astralis. If you think they just pick the best rated player from all teams, then this discussion is over.

The MVP typically goes to the winning team. I undeestand that from time to time one player, lets call him S1mple or Twistzz, is so much better but fail to carry bad team that hltv deviates from winning team. The NAF case was not such though, good but not great!

2018-12-09 21:28
They need a reason to put device on #1. That‘s why they don‘t want to give a mvp medal to any other astralis player.

What a joke. This MVP is just a joke if you give him someone who doesn't deserve it. Someday nobody gives a fuck about the MVP if it has zero value.
2018-12-09 21:29
Hltv come on... astralis is the best team for sure, but he was not the mvp. He is not even the best player in his team. Why are you trying so hard to grant him mvp every tournament... this is so crazy. Rigged #1 of 2018 or what? He was not the best throughout the tournament nor in the finals...
2018-12-09 21:29
he is the best player in his team, at least statwise, and if NAF played a bit better in the final he would've gotten the MVP (only 0.05 difference, -3 in the gf kinda fucked him up)
2018-12-09 21:44
I agree, put naf or Dupreeh or twist to awp against him. He will get reqt. Put him to some new clan he will suck. Niko, simple they play so hard with new clan mates and roles. Ask if device can do that?
2018-12-09 21:47
The award of the MVP is about the whole tournament and not only about finals. When it's written like "finals" they mean the final stage of the tournament in LAN, not the bo5 ONLY! Just keep this on mind...
2018-12-10 02:38
OK so using your logic. NAF had a better tournament before the finals, was the 2nd best player on his team during the finals, and had better stats than device in the finals even though he was on the receiving end of a 1-3 loss. Edit: finished the tournament as the highest rated player of all the players that were in the finals as well. Device had a worse tournament than NAF before the finals, was the worst player on his team during the finals (carried to a win), and is known as an eco stat padder worldwide. If anything, the MVP should go to glaive on astralis. Because outside the fact he was the 2nd best player in the finals via rating, he had the most frags on his team in the finals, and is the largest reason for his teams success due to the fact he's the igl. So not only did he call for the victory while fragging more than his peers, his revolutionary strats and nade stacks is what their team as a whole is known for. Edit: finished the tournament 2nd highest rated player on his team with more worth during the finals. The bias has been ridiculous this year. It devalues the whole point of the system.
2018-12-10 11:46
I also agree with what you said but Astralis were the winning team and I think that's why device won the mvp award instead if NAF. It was fair enough because although he had 2 low performance maps he was good in the other 2 and he had a very good tournament generally! I watched every game of Astralis in the tournament and least that's my opinion.
2018-12-12 02:11

Underserved this time... In my opinion gla1ve was the real MVP of this tournament. Whit this one its pretty much confirmed that device will get the hltv award follow by s1mple.... Even though they are not the team I look for up to...hopefully the rest of the guys on Astralis get the recognition that they deserve on the upcoming hltv awards...
2018-12-09 22:22
People are so dimwitted its incredible. Yes device was not the best in the final, but he was during the whole tournament and after he got his jitters out of him, he showed up in the last two maps and helped tremendously. Astralis is the best team and everybody can carry, but device is just the most consistent, which is why he gets the mvp. Not hard to grasp.
2018-12-09 22:22
Xyp9x always saving and never recognized. Without it they would lose several games, mvp is Xyp9x

Its pretty obvious. Though device was mediocre in the final, he was by far the best player throughout the tournament, from Astralis. Had another player from Astralis been close to device and had a very good final, it could easily have been him. Should someone from the losing team get it, he would have had to be insane throughout the whole tournament and nobody from Liquid was.

2018-12-10 09:02
No, he was marginally better throughout the tournament, same in the final. Its natural to pick the best player, from the winning team. S1mple won his MVPs losing, because he was MUCH better than the player from the winning team.

check the numbers. device was by far astralis best player up until the final. tournament mvp counts for all the maps, not just the final. hltv.org/stats/teams/players/6665/Astral..
2018-12-10 12:26
So hltv will obviously make him #1 this year after they gifted him a couple of undeserved mvps. We all know that s1mple is by far the better player, he is just Stück with 3 bots
2018-12-10 12:47
hltv also gave s1mple an mvp in a tournament he didn't even win. how does that fact work with your logic?
2018-12-10 12:48
Man are you retarded? He had like 36 frags plus in the finals
2018-12-10 12:49
no, i am not retarded. but thank you for asking. sure, he played very well that tournament, but it is still against tradition to give the tournament mvp to a player who didn't win the final. yet, hltv did it anyway and a lot of people were outraged about it. seems to go against your logic that hltv are biased towards device.
2018-12-10 12:51
>say your not retarded >Acts like a Retard again
2018-12-10 12:52
> is toxic on hltv and doesn't listen to reason > is just plain stupid
2018-12-10 12:53
So do you want to tell me that ecovice is a better player than s1mple?
2018-12-10 12:56
no, i think s1mple is better. but that's not at all what we're discussing... smh
2018-12-10 12:57
Why are we talking anymore? The whole mvp System is obviously garbage when a Player with 40% Ecofrags gets more mvps than the best player in the world. S1mple>ecovice /close
2018-12-10 13:01
dead meme. there are no numbers to support that device farms more ecofrags than anyone else in his team. quite the contrary actually. playing an awp, it's much harder to farm eco frags than playing m4/ak where you can spray an entire team down. most of the games i'm watching with astralis, it's actually magisk, glaive and dupreeh who farms the most eco frags.
2018-12-10 13:02
I am just telling you, bye raw skill device isn't even close to top2
2018-12-10 13:04
and i actually agree. if you put device in aim map vs. niko and s1mple he would lose. but wouldn't it be a bit silly if mvp awards was only about raw aim? shouldn't they be about being a good teamplayer too? device always takes smart angles, throws nades for support, trades well for his teammates. all these things don't show up in the stats and are not about raw aim, but all these things matter A LOT for a team's success. a skilled player is not only technically gifted, he's also a smart player. and i would argue that device is a smarter player than both niko and simple.
2018-12-10 13:07
An mvp should not be given to the best Team Player. That's why you are Team. You can only win if everybody is a good teamplayer. I think either zonic or the smoke grenade deserves the mvp more.
2018-12-10 13:11
Being a good player and being a good team player are not two distinct entities. Those things are connected. Counter-Strike is a team game.
2018-12-10 13:12
Throwing some nades doesn't require that much skill, I bet its even called by glaive when to throw them. And imo device isn't even the best teamplayer in Astralis
2018-12-10 13:15
Having the gamesense to know when to nade, trade, push, go passive etc. is not easy. Are you just guessing that glaive makes that call, or do you base it on anything?
2018-12-10 13:16
Knowing that Astralis is a very organized Team, I suppose that glaive is Making calls for most of their nades especially on the T side
2018-12-10 13:19
The mvp is a trophy for the best player of the tournament. Sure its given to the mvp of the winning Team usually, but nobody can say that s1mple wasn't the mvp of this tournament. He played by far better than anyone on mousesports.
2018-12-10 12:55
i'm not saying that mvp's should always be given to the winning team. i'm saying that the HLTV TRADITION is to give the mvp to the winning team. so they could easily have defended giving the mvp to device in account on it being tradition. but they didn't. they gave it to s1mple. doesn't smell like bias to me. if you don't understand the argument i'm making here, you're simply lost mate.
2018-12-10 12:56
I swear, if Astralis was in this finals they would have given the mvp straight away to him
2018-12-10 12:59
oh, my bad. I thought astralis was in the final against NaVi in that tournament. guess i'm too used to them being in the final.

I get an headache reading all these dumbass comments that hltv are doing this to boost device. Sure he didn't have the greatest finals, now tell me, how unfair would be giving the mvp award to glaive or xyp for being better in the final, given the fact that all the way through device was by far their best player (we're talking 8 out of 12 maps here) and the main reason why they even managed to play this final?
2018-12-10 02:52
Their igl was their 2nd highest rated player in the tournament. Had the most frags in the finals, and once again hes their fucking igl whose probably the most important player on their team and hasn't won a single MVP award this year. Did I mention he's their igl, on a team that's know for teamwork, execution, and nade tactics?
2018-12-10 11:57

Xyp9x |

But we all know that glaive is the master behind Astralis, thing is that's not a valid point when you pick an mvp. Same as FalleN was the master behind SK's dominance and it was always cold getting mvps and leading the charts. Device played the best overall, glaive made them play the best, but for the mvp, most of glaives work as an igl is left "behind the scenes" because he contributes for a collective success whereas mvp picks individual success. I could not be 100% right in here but that's my understanding. of course he has his value tho

NiKo had much better aim, he still does, but that's it. Cold had a better rating and much more mvps and collective awards. NiKo wasn't better than Cold in 2017... thing is people usually look at who gets the hardest kills and hits the hardest shots as being the best.
2018-12-10 19:29
NiKo was always better than him and will continue to be, colds rating was only 0.01 higher but that's it, he got more MVPs(2 of these are from t2 tourneys) because his team won more trophies and NiKo had higher adr and impact than cold which are the things that matter the most
2018-12-10 21:21

fer had more adr and impact than both of them, won the same amount of trophies as Cold and obviously more than NiKo, finished 3rd. Rightfully so he was closer to NiKo at 2nd than NiKo was close to Cold at 1st. The fact that you refuse to understand that Cold was the best in the world in 2017 says a lot...
2018-12-10 21:29
How is 86.7 adr is more than 87? NiKo is the best player of 2017 for every intelligent human being, cold without consistent bait is top10 player at best lmao

If Device gets the #1 spot of 2k18 i'm just boycotting HLTV until they make a good, unbiased ranking.

2018-12-10 10:31
They just want a reason to act annoying
2018-12-10 12:50
HLTV is just trying to make dev1ce the world's best player at this point. Xyp9x got robbed.

MVP rating of this website is really bad. They take into account such parameters as "most awp kills", "most entry kills", everything with the word "most". And of course "most" will have the person who played more matches, so the one who is in the final. May be you should start take "average kills with awp per game", "average entry kills per game"?

HLTV danish org big fans of device :D who would expect that ?
2018-12-10 15:12
All the players in Astralis are Danish mate. Not just device. Hltv has no reason to prefer him over any other astralis player

But they are doing it? I probably want to use it as excuses when they will put him #1 in their rating xD hes good but not best (jw best) they robbed xyp9x/gla1ve/dupreeh for few times just for example hltv.org/stats?event=4083 device has 1.19 rating gla1ve has 1.14 this is stats for whole tournament and difference between them is 0.05 which is nothing at all especially when gla1ve was the most important player in major and had much better rating (1.19 vs 1.04) + hes igl and thats a fucking awesome.. only fallen and him can be igl and top frag at same time but they just gave this mvp also to device rigged shit same for this final, he was fucking bad on first 2 maps, average on third and ok on last naf had much better ratings, xyp9x clutched 5 or 6 times, gla1ve had amazing game but they still gave mvp to him same for IEM chicago hltv.org/events/3954/iem-chicago-2018 dupreeh 1.15 ratings device 1.15 ratings dupreeh was better in final (1.31 vs 1.22) and they still gave mvp to device faceit major 2018, dupreeh was robbed again hltv.org/events/3564/faceit-major-2018 almost same rating overall, much better in finals device still claims mvp so basically half of mvps are not deserved
2018-12-10 19:57
Why would they make this elaborate scheme to put device at top1? You really think they would do this just because of national pride or do you have a conspiracy theory? All of the mvp’s device have gotten he had the best rating in the team (except the one shared with dupreeh). The mvps are given based on the entire tournament and not just the final, so...

Undeserved, Xyp9x played godlike, gla1ve had ridiculous rounds and has proven a great IGL, how many times dupreeh saved astralis? I really can't understand

Eco frags > Clutch rounds (xyp) > Stepping up, top fragging to lead the comeback after map1 shock loss (Glaive) > Consistency (Dupreeh) apparentally 2.0 rating system is fucking garbage still ecolai exititz can suck my dick
