FalleN wins BLAST Pro Series MVP award

SK Gaming captain Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo is the Most Valuable Player (MVP) of BLAST Pro Series Copenhagen 2017 by HLTV.org & Betway.

The Brazilian veteran outshined teammate Marcelo "⁠coldzera⁠" David, one of the favourites heading into the final, with a dominant display in the title match, topping the scoreboard with a 1.67 rating.

Astralis trio Markus "⁠Kjaerbye⁠" Kjærbye, Dennis "⁠dennis⁠" Edman and Andreas "⁠Xyp9x⁠" Højsleth were also in the running following great performances throughout the round-robin stage and also in the close three-map series against SK.

FalleN wins MVP award after amazing final performance

Gabriel "⁠FalleN⁠" Toledo, whose only below-average performances at BLAST Pro Series came in SK's one-sided losses to Astralis and FaZe in the group stage, had the fifth-highest tournament rating (1.21) and led the charts in opening kills (29) and AWP kills (79), and had the second-highest success rate in opening duels at 65.9%.

This is the third MVP award scooped by FalleN, who also won the honour at DreamHack Austin 2016 and ESL One Cologne 2017.

LUL TACO is a silver BOT compared to Niko, Coldzera, duPREEH deagle. And Denis can out-pistol everyone with a single glock. TACO is just the most carried bot in history of counter strike.

dupreeh played like a god, but fallen won them the game. imo winning the game for your team is more important than just playing well
2017-11-26 00:10
+1 If astralis won the championship, dupreeh mvp, it's simple like this
2017-11-26 05:04
kjaerbye or dennis will get the MVP kjaerbye -1.26 rating dupreeh - 1.06
2017-11-26 10:56
I didnt see the other astralis games, but the best player from astralis in thr final was dupreeh, and a final has much more weight
2017-11-26 14:10
Don't matter. The only thing that have importance in the tournament is the rating, and the text said that have 3 others players on astralis that have more chance to win a MVP than Dupreeh. Kjaerby, Dennis and Xyp9x was better than Dupreeh as they say.
2017-11-26 18:04
I dont believe, i think that will have a day that the someone do the perfect final, and even if his rate is less than a other player, he will win the mvp
2017-11-26 18:08
haha I don't believe that, Dupreeh was on fire on Mirage, when he won 2 rounds in a row, but I think isn't enough to win a MVP, Fallen deserved that, He was good in all matches in the tournament, and your final rating was amazing :D
2017-11-26 18:16
I agree, he was the best
2017-11-26 19:20

2017-12-12 01:23
Hhahaha when i write, hltv didnt announced yet hahahah but yesterday was an example of what i said.. Everybody played well, none of them was much better than others, so they give the mvp to taco

He not only is a god in the BR scene, he'd be a GOD in any scene in the world. Put Fallen in France, and you'd have RpK, apEX, NBK, Fallen, shox. Put him in Sweden Olof, f0rest, dennis, Fallen, GeT_RiGhT Put him in Denmark Kjaerbye, Xyp9x, dupreeh, Fallen, dev1ce Put him in Poland Taz, Neo, pasha, Fallen, Snax Put him CIS electronic, Edward, AdreN, Fallen, Hobbit Put him even in Portugal rmn, mut, fox, Fallen, zelin He's the only player in the world that if you put him in any scene at all with suficient pro players, he'd make a team better than all existing teams there and most likely a top 3 team in the world. The guy is super unreal.

2017-11-25 23:47
Way too easy for SK Gaming, the best team that has ever existed in all versions of Counter Strike. This record-breaking machine, also known as "team", is composed by: Gabriel Toledo - FalleN: The best sniper and In-Game Leader that ever existed in this game that people call Counter Strike.When the enemies press TAB and see his name on the other team, they instantly choke and lose all their composure, hence losing the match, just ask Team Liquid and they will tell you all about this. Fernando Alvarenga - fer: The best player of 2017 so far. His play style is so good that the enemies can't even see where he is on the map. If you think Fer is in one place and you go and check that place you'll find out that he's not there and is actually behind you and by this time you have already been knifed and humiliated by the best lurker that ever played this game. Enemies choke just by seeing his model in-game, just ask TaZ and he will tell you more about it. Ricado Prass - boltz: Our fatty and cute guy as knowed as ‘boltão’ or ‘boltalha’ is back to the team since lil star felps was benched. His sprays are the best of the world, he may has german blood in his veins but he is not a cheater tho! Boltz can easily hold a bomb side by himself anytime anyday, spraying and collecting some kills like no one can! Also, this guy is a clutch monster.. enemies cry when they press TAB and see thats boltz left to play the clutch. Marcelo David - coldzera: Also known as GODZERA he is without a doubt the best player that ever played this game. Fallen is the best sniper and IGL, but Coldzera... Oh Coldzera, what can I even say about this man? He's like the Messi and CR7 of CS:GO, he's not from this planet. His aim is always on point, his game sense is impecable, he is also the smartest player that ever existed and the most humble one also, because a player of his skill level you'd think that he'd play as the team star or IGL, but no, he plays a support. But Cold (or GOD) can play any role and he'll still be better than 100% of the players. You know why? Because Coldzera has magic! Good players win titles, amazing players break records, Coldzera breaks the rules! You can stay with your stats that I'll stay with the magic! You prefer the stats, I prefer tha magic, I prefer COLDZERA! Epitácio de Melo - TACO: You might get fooled by his stats not being so good as his other 4 teammates, but just watch any SK match and you will see why TACO is the best entry fragger in the world and best solo B player ever. He's so versatile, you can give him any weapon, even an AWP, and put him alone in any B bombsite of any map and he'll humiliate all the players of the other team by his amazing skill and outstanding positioning as well as his out-of-this-world game sense. He's one of the smartest players that ever played this game and you know that. As a Terrorist just put him in front of the line and he'll win dominate the bombsite all by himself, and even die so that his team can plant the bomb! Tell me if this isn't the best thing a player could do? Give his life and give up having good stats so that his team can succeed? I can't hold back the tears anymore, damn my keyboard is all wet now... I'll have to stop here. TACO <3 And this is why this is an easy match for the best team that ever existed.

What an absolute ridiculous player when he decides to show up. Honestly. There's no cold, niko, rain, fer or kennys to challenge him when he is on fire. Not only he becomes so much more intelligent than everyone else, but he also hits shots no one else would. Bizarre.
