coldzera gets DH Summer MVP award

MIRAA
June 19th, 2017 22:28

Marcelo "coldzera" David is our Most Valuable Player (MVP) of DreamHack Open Summer for his role in SK Gaming's triumphant campaign.

The 22-year-old bested teammates Fernando "fer" Alvarenga and Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo, and fnatic trio of Dennis "dennis" Edman, Jesper "JW" Wecksell and Olof "olofmeister" Kajbjer for the honour. 

Marcelo "coldzera" David had just two below-average Ratings in the ten games that he played in Jönköping. He excelled on Cobblestone against CLG (1.33 Rating), and in both map wins in the final against fnatic, which propelled him to top the series' scoreboard with a 1.24 Rating.

coldzera wins third MVP award of the year

He was also SK's highest-rated player of the tournament at 1.19, ranking behind only CLG's Ricardo "Rickeh" Mulholland (1.25), Gambit's Rustem "mou" Telepov (1.23) and mousesports' Tomáš "oskar" Šťastný (1.22).

This is coldzera's sixth MVP award of his career, the third since the start of the year after he also scooped the honour at IEM Sydney and cs_summit.

2017-06-20 15:03
idnt get highest rating on his team tho. they were both godlike and couldnt have done it without each other
2017-06-20 20:35
the best ever / highest peak in csgo ever has been kennyS and its not even close in terms of impact and domination. and no, im not french.

great joke m8

2017-06-22 07:24
If we consider KennyS' 'peak' the part when he was significantly better than he is now, then that peak lasted a couple of months at best.
2017-06-20 10:49
talking about someones peak has no impact on how long he played on that level. he did it for like up to 6 months maybe in Titan i would imagine where he carried Maniac, RpK tru so many matches and that was his peak (prior to awp nerf aswell) and that level of an individual was never reached again in my opinion. he literally destroyed whole teams alone. coldzera isnt doing that. he prolly got 3 top15 players in his team and everyone is playing on top level. coldzera is great and does his job aswell as some special clutches, but he isnt carrying fer, fallen & co like kennyS had to do. There is quite a skill difference.
2017-06-20 16:47
i agree kennyS has highest peak out of anyone and in terms of longevity at the top it has to be shox and get_right (yes hes trash now) however cold is on the way to surpassing both of them and in a much more difficult scene because the competition is better

2017-06-20 11:48
nothing to lol about he dominated for a ridiculous period of time. no one has been a top 5 or top 10 player more times than shox and get right. coldzera will eventually surpass them at this rate tho. he will be soon since the scene is much more difficult than the GTR era
2017-06-20 20:42
nt , its olof , if he didnt get injured he would still be #1 , but he ll be back .
2017-06-20 12:56
"if he didnt get injured" :> coldzera top1 #thecryisfree
2017-06-20 13:00
u re retard i said olof is best player to ever touch csgo , i didnt say he is still top 1. learn 2 read dumb monkey
2017-06-20 13:05
oh right, so he was good from around 1 year and 3 months... a guy now who is good since 2015, back to back mvp, top1 2016, so far top1 2017.. and still going... just cuz U think olof still top1, cuz u are salty af that a BR is the best ever, u think u right LUL #madAF #delusional #BRHUEHUEHUE #thecryisfree #RUNGODZERAG
2017-06-20 13:08
u just keep proving u re dumber and dumber , olof was god since his lgb times till the injury and thats like 3 years , cold is god for like year or year and a half , go back to school monkey , u cant read.
2017-06-20 13:17
ez report sounds like u cant understand what I'm saying olof is a god, he is the second best player ever but cold is just out of control, he managed to be consistent since 2015, the era olof was really good in shit team, cold did the same, but better... olof on good fnatic = godlike cold on good lg = godlike as olof disapeared, and cold continue to be super good cold >> olof ez till end of 2016 to me olof still > cold but now cold is better already... MAYBE if olof comes back, and get better than cold, then ok but didnt happen lul, taking in consideration what is REAL and not dleusional = cold > olof
2017-06-20 13:21
olof in average team = godlike cold in average team= who tf is this monkey olof in good team= godlike x2 cold in good team = very good u dumb fuck cant understand that olof was consistent for 3 fucking years and cold for like 1-1.5 years. olof>cold all day long olof even now has some flashbacks of his old form.
2017-06-20 13:26
salty af cuz u know cold is better hahahahaha =D better stats, more time being top1 you are just a delusional fanboi :> stats prove my point, your delusional mind prove yours :> #thecryisfree
2017-06-20 18:38
ummmm 1 year > 3 years? ok ok nice math skills m8 stats re in my favour we can see who is delusional monkey here , go eat some bananas cry is free :*
2017-06-21 11:43
lmao, he wasnt godlike for this long :> he was very good for 3 years, like nowdays for example ^^ he wasnt GODLIKE for all time lol and btw, no arguments and start being racist LMAO gl on your next account :> #thecryisfree #GODZERA #oloftop2
2017-06-21 12:39
yup he was godlike 4 3 yrs , u re one who dont have arguments and who started 2 be cocky 1st :* ill enjoy ur tears

Amazing player but lets see if he can contend for the MVP vs players like kennys, niko and device

It's really a toss-up, will depend alot on how the overall team performs aswell because its usually/always? one of the winners that gets the MVP, so many great players nowadays.

That tournament is stacked, probably will go to the winner of the tournament tho.

It always goes to a player on the winning team. Which I'm not sure is always entirely fair as sometimes a player in the losing team, or even who only makes semis, is so far ahead of the rest and could be argued to be the MVP but due to their team failing + bad luck doesn;t win the event. In this case you could almost argue that Rickeh deserves it, amazing play in pretty much every game, made CLG beat top tems and compete against others...
2017-06-19 22:45
Not always. Guardian got the MVP at Cluj even though they lost. Which baffles me because Cold at Oakland put even bigger of a performance and they gave the MVP to f0rest. Quite a travesty if you ask me tbh

According to who was he the MVP, thorin? HLTV weren't oing official MVPs at that point and I'm pretty every official ne they've announced or given a medal for is in the winning team. Guardian may have deserved one but just getting a load of fanboy videos on youtube doesn't count for me.

Yea, because niko is going to get a fucking MVP at a major while playing in botsports and exiting groupstage and kennys wasn't even close to his prime during those majors at the same time he was playing in the shitty envy team and bombed out groups and device was playing in the choke version of astralis who weren't even a contender for titles. I know he got it at majors but I am obviously talking about if he can get it NOW when these top players actually don't play in shit teams and can contend for titles, like don't call people retard when you are acting like one.
2017-06-19 22:43
Putting KennyS and device toe to toe with niko and cold is just sad. Only player that comes close is fallen, but can't really match them.

2017-06-19 22:36
better stats but not more useful for the team i think fer is better ingame even tho cold gets more frags fer is more impactful
2017-06-19 22:37
Except he wasn't better, cold might have better K/D but that is since he plays passive positions, Fer was the one who won the game while Cold just padded stats.

I disagree, i dont understand why people think Fer is more impactful when everytime he buys a Mac10 and get a easy 4k, i hardly see coldzera getting a eco frag... people just love to hate him ^^
2017-06-19 22:42
Not sure if we watch the same game vs fnatic but all he did was 2 deags , some eco frags and exits everytime with he awp meanwhile fer/fallen did the hard work.

we definetly didn't watch the same game youtube.com/watch?v=cXoGh5DErgk cold with a 3k almost every round, none against eco
2017-06-19 22:55
Thats what im sayin , we didnt watched the same game , where do you see ALL those 3k almost everyround beside an ump and a pistol 3k mostly because of teamwork. Fallen for example had 2-3 very important rounds but that clutch of him is more impactful than all cold 3k's combined.
2017-06-19 23:03
Fer played bad in the final series, otherwise i think hed take that MVP away
2017-06-19 23:26
he didnt play bad lmao
2017-06-19 23:29
Alright, Cold played much better.
2017-06-19 23:30
undeserved, fer is a lot better
2017-06-19 22:35
Did YOU saw the other games? Cold deserved...
2017-06-19 22:49
I saw most of other games. If you watched ESLPL5 and IEM Sydney ,beside all those clutches , he does only eco frags ,re-frags and bating his teammate.
2017-06-19 23:07
in SIDNEY Cold pretty much saved SK two times in two crutial clutchs one was 1v3 and another against niko in a post plant stfu

LoL, Fer does all the work and gets all the important kills, cold just boost his stats with Eco/exit frags while making sure not to get deaths for better k/d.

Should have gone to Olofmeister tbh. Most dominate, high impact player of the Bo3. But fnatic didn't win so they have to default to Coldzera, who played average with some highlights.

I mean, how can you hate us when you got nothing on us? Just sit back and enjoy the show, the show SK Gaming will put up for the rest of 2017 as the dominant team, like it was in 2016! Coldzera monster! GODZERA!

Well.. it's not you. or your country. it's only SK and the players. NOT FUCKING YOU. We all hate you because your fishy and retarded comments, your exaggerating country love and your constant need to tell it to the whole world. It's just embarassing. now get out. Brazilian sports mentality is just disgusting. Not only in esports. Why are you like this. Just be a normal person please. Sorry for the hatred

I'm not gonna stop using first person to talk about SK. We're used to it in other sports because we feel like the players are representing all of us there. A football team playing a World Cup final is representing a whole country, and so is any team in any sport (or Esport) playing at international level. And I feel that the boys from SK are, in some sort, representing all of us when they play internationally, so using "we, us" when talking about SK is just a way to show that. And I'll tell you here that I didn't even notice that I used it until I read your reply. It's so natural that I don't even notice. And I know that there are no fans in the world like us, Brazilian fans. I saw that in the World Cup, in the Olympics, in ESL Pro League SP, how bothered the rest of the world was by our passion, by our love to the players, doesn't matter if it's on the stage playing CS or on the field playing football. We are the most passionate fans in the world and I know that it bothers the rest of the world because no other country has this passion when it comes to sports. Sorry for the long text but I just had to do it. And yes, we all are SK Gaming, we all are Brazil. WE. We are the best team in the world, we are the champions. We.

potti? You mean Neo, Markeloff and f0rest right and no coldzera is NEVER going to be on that level because CS Go has low skill ceiling.

This is why all of them are shit in CSGO, because it has a "low skill ceiling", makes sense.
