Astralis’ Nicholi “dev1ce” Reedtz crossed a major Counter-Strike: Global Offensive milestone last week when he reached and then passed one of CSGO’s most monumental pro player acheivements.

dev1ce has now played over 1,000 maps since the team formally known as TSM went solo and named itself Astralis. dev1ce, considered by many fans to be one of the most deadly AWP users in the history of CSGO, reached the 1,000-map milestone during Astralis’ match against FURIA on December 5. In that time, dev1ce has won over $1.5 million in prize money with Astralis, thanks in large part to his incredible stats. Few players compete long enough to reach the 1,000 map milestone, and dev1ce wasn’t the only Astralis player who hit the mark in the past month.

dev1ce is actually the second player on Astralis player to have passed the mark in the past month, with teammate Peter “dupreeh” Rasmussen 20 maps ahead of dev1ce. While both players formed the independant team at the same time, dev1ce missed a number of matches in 2018 due to health concerns. Both players were part of the original five players who formed Astralis in 2016, and are the only two remaining players from the team’s original roster. Between the two of them, dev1ce and dupreeh have fragged over 41,000 players and played out a grand total of 54,134 rounds of professional CSGO.

Wow many MVP medels does dev1ce have?

dev1ce’s two CSGO Major MVPs and nine other tournament MVPs make him the most awarded player of all time. His two CSGO major MVP titles are tied with Marcelo “coldzera” David and helped Astralis win a record four Major championship titles in a row. dev1ce is also only one of six players to have played at every CSGO Majors ever held. His settings are some of the most popular in the world, but the most asked question about dev1ce is, “What resolution does he use?”

Does dev1ce play with black bars?

dev1ce plays at a resolution of 1024x768px, and he does play with black bars. That means that instead of stretching the image, CSGO keeps the game centered on the screen. Most veteran players use black bars because that’s the resolution of classic versions of Counter-Strike.
