Video: Kjaerbye - MVP of EL Major's Radosław "MAKKU" Makuch put together a video compilation with Markus "Kjaerbye" Kjærbye's best actions at the ELEAGUE Major where he got the HLTV MVP by ZOWIE award.

Astralis were crowned the tenth CS:GO Major champions in Atlanta after they beat 2-1 in the grand final, taking home $500,000 and retaining their #1 spot in the rankings.

Markus "Kjaerbye" Kjærbye earned the HLTV MVP by ZOWIE award thanks to his 1.16 rating (2.0) throughout the event. His performance was consistent and the 18-year-old stepped up in the grand final, posting a 73:54 score and a 1.22 rating. Despite winning the MVP, the youngster didn't have many highlights as his contribution was spread out throughout different rounds.

Defenitely worst mvp so far. 2 otherp layers with better performance. Even the video has no impressive moments.
2017-02-06 17:02
im not talking about kjerbye, im about my place in comments :DD

2 minutes of 3K's. NOT DESERVED MVP!
2017-02-05 18:56
Denmark mathiaso 
because mvp is only based on final, not tournament, which is wierd
2017-02-05 19:25
he didn't deserve not even the best player of astralis, much less MVP of the tournament, what a joke.
2017-02-05 19:45
Denmark mathiaso 
he was best in the final... not in the tournament
2017-02-05 20:21
idk, i would choose xyp9x for best player in the final.
2017-02-06 00:35
title is MVP of el Major, not MVP of el Major's final. Device should've won it
2017-02-06 11:34
I have a new word for you: c o n s i s t e n c y
2017-02-05 20:55
I'm happy where my fellow received Mvp but everyone know that snax was a way better
2017-02-05 18:57
device was even better than snax...
2017-02-06 11:34
Poland pando0r 
lol, please..
2017-02-06 11:54
He was the best player in the best team, ofc he was the MVP
2017-02-06 13:24
Poland pando0r 
The best payer in the best team, thats true yeah. He wasn't the best in the whole tourney though. I agree that most of the time the MVP award goes to someone from the winning team, but not always. That's the only reason I'm accepting Kjaerbye as MVP instead of Snax who dominated the major. Peace, bro
2017-02-06 14:31
Salty vp fans still here xD gj kjærbae
2017-02-05 18:57
device had better tournament till the final than kjaerbye. That's just fact, that it's undeserved MVP tittle. Only cuz final
2017-02-05 19:00
Seems like a reasonable enough reason. Bet you people would still say it if it was Device
2017-02-05 19:10
Denmark mathiaso 
the mvp is only based upon the final
2017-02-05 20:21
then why is the title El Major's MVP and not El Major final's MVP?
2017-02-06 11:35
What brings most value, getting your team to the final or make your team win the final?
2017-02-05 20:28
well, actually if you dont get to the final, you wont be able to play it lol
2017-02-05 21:32
but if you don't play well in the final, you won't win it, tough call, huh? hehehEHehe
2017-02-05 21:38
y really think Kjaerbye had impact rounds in the final, but to be honest Snax was better in the whole event, even dEVICE as well
2017-02-05 21:43
90% of the time the MVP is from the winning team, regardless of other players performance, happens in all competetive sports
2017-02-05 22:16
actally not, Messi was MVP of Brasil 2014 and the champion was Germany so...
2017-02-05 23:25
I wrote 90% of the time :)
2017-02-06 00:38
nice retarded logic - it's MVP for whole tournament, not MVP for a single game. U can be Man of the Match in UCL final, but u won't win UCL overall MVP only cuz final game performance.
2017-02-06 00:43
Nice retarded logic? it's not my logic, I'm just telling you how it usually works, I'm not the one decideing it, so stfu.
2017-02-06 00:45
it's not working like that - only one who can stfu is you.
2017-02-06 00:45
He was the mvp of the final. But device brought them there. Snax was also better
2017-02-05 18:58
This guy seems to have a nextgen mouse

2017-02-05 23:02
dont know.. way to much 2k and 3k, not enough impact actions, I dont think he is the mvp, but hey, he is so gj!

I <3 kjarbye but dev1ce, snorlax was better overall in tournament.-
2017-02-05 19:12
Undeserved... Got only due to final performance... If xyp9x didn't clutch that 1v3 and VP win then kjaerbye would never be a MVP
2017-02-05 19:12
Just the best cheats of the scene...
2017-02-05 19:12
Honestly, this shakeing crosshair looks cheaterinho.
2017-02-05 19:13
He has been shaking while spraying/shooting ever since he started playing cs 10 years ago
2017-02-05 19:27
he's been cheating for 10 years
2017-02-05 19:31

2017-02-06 13:01
xypn9x is real MVP
2017-02-05 19:14
Poland pllush 
Snax was the better ...not fair
2017-02-05 19:16
not imo, it was fair. you could argue that device was better
2017-02-05 19:23
Pasha or Snax - MVPS
2017-02-05 19:19
what a shit video. less music more caster/game sound would be better with winning momemnt also caster sounds would be better IMO

Snax was better, and even if they wanted to give it to the winning team, device was better all tournament long. They wouldn't be in the final if not for him, and then kjaerbye would not have the chance to shine.

Honestly, it didn't make for a good video. Kjaerbye was sick in the final, but device and snax were better overall in the tournament.

Device - carryes all the matches excepting the final kjaerbye - gets carryed in all the matches excepting the final MVP - kjaerbye.

wrong... kjaerbye mvp of the final no of the all tournament
2017-02-05 20:20
THE MOMENT a low fov aimbot gets mentioned by hltv as MVP of a major u know the csgo scene is fucked
2017-02-05 20:23
nothing matters until the final, that's how the mvp of majors are, you can be the best throughout the entire tournament except in the final like Device :/
2017-02-05 20:29
If you watched the finals you would've known that x9pnx was the one who won them the finals against VP, with his 1hp 1v2 clutch, it was doomed, until he clutched.
2017-02-05 21:39
2017-02-05 23:59
crosshair ?
2017-02-05 21:37
i'm soo disappointed makkuu :( Like we know that he is not the real mvp that's how he doesn't have much frags but .. com on :(.

Tsjärby played a nice tournament but not sure I agree on him being the MVP overall. Nice clip anyways, thank you.
2017-02-06 03:21
I thought MVP was short for "most valuable player", not "possibly best player on the winning team in the final". That's a lot of qualifying you need to do to justify giving kjærbye the nod. Xyp9x had more important clutches, device had an overall better tournament, snax had the best tournament of all but no one in the world could carry that team hard enough... Am disappoint, hltv. You're the biggest site covering CSGO, so your story becomes the "official" one. Better get it right!
2017-02-06 06:01
Nothing special

Device got them to the final while kjaerbye won them the final It's obvious the finals matter more than the others duh.
2017-02-06 09:54
Snax > Kjaerbye but nt hltv H@H@H@.
2017-02-06 13:55
the cry is free AHAHAHAH chokers, winners only can be mvp xd

omg max -4 pistol round
2017-02-07 17:33
It's not like he wasn't playing good before the final! He was solid troughout and in very important matches. Maybe wasn't fragging as much as device or someone else, but his performance was always very good and amazing in the final. Deserved MvP for me!
2017-02-10 10:14
should be LA major, not EL Major but ok
