FalleN earns ESL One Cologne MVP award

Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo has been selected the Most Valuable Player (MVP) of ESL One Cologne 2017 for his role in SK Gaming's title-winning campaign.

The 26-year-old had the highest rating among SK's players in the tournament, 1.24, and was the joint highest-rated player of the final alongside teammate Marcelo "⁠coldzera⁠" David

Gabriel "⁠FalleN⁠" Toledo, who inspired SK to win the second map of the final with 34 frags, boasted a 68% success rate in opening duels, which was the second highest among playoff players, the fourth highest overall.

FalleN wins Cologne MVP medal

In the end, FalleN won the race for the MVP award over teammates Fernando "⁠fer⁠" Alvarenga and coldzera, both of whom also produced strong individual performances in the playoffs.

This is FalleN's second MVP award of his career after he also won the honour at DreamHack Austin 2016.

Lol. They use a different style of opping. U cannot compare them. Fallen: The most consistent KennyS: The fastest
2017-07-09 20:15
Fallen the most consistent and the fastest, kennyS exists in 2014 and that's it

Yeah i know:). But i did not want to make other bad discussions :))))
2017-07-09 20:40
Yes, you can't compare them basically because FalleN is the igl (in my opinion the world's best), but kennyS is way too inconsistent at AWPing. Btw, kennyS still generally gets some of the best stats of the tournaments where his awping skills weren't on point. KennyS faster, I feel like you can't really be "faster" since the 2015 AWP nerf.

Hard to say that he is best, cold, fer and fallen all have monsterous games
2017-07-09 20:28
Yep, it´s difficult to say now who is the best in SK (and in the world). With Fallen, cold and fer playing like this it´ll be hard to determine who is the best in the world, if SK continues in this form, of course.

Tha moment when 3 different players from Sk are mvps of previous tournaments. Thats sick and a scary prospect. Grats sk.
2017-07-10 02:48
In Major it´ll be TACO. Just kidding. With these 3 in form, it´ll be to stop SK in Krakow. I think only G2 in a good day can stop them in this Major. G2 has been the kryptonite for SK. I wanna see a grand final BO3 between them. Even with the losses to G2, in a BO3´s series I think SK is favourite, but no much.

Agree. Faze's and astralis's firepower are not enough against the brazilian trident. Only g2 has the edge on terms of actually firepower. Also with a 5-1 record, that shows how effective g2 is against sk.
2017-07-10 17:35
Major Grandfinals is BO3 or BO5?
