December 10th, 2017 22:00

SK Gaming star Marcelo "coldzera" David is the winner of the Most Valuable Player (MVP) award of the ESL Pro League Season 6 Finals by HLTV.org & Betway.

The 23-year-old scoops the award thanks to his incredible consistency throughout the tournament - just one below-average Rating across 11 maps - and his team-leading performance in the final, boasting a 1.10 Rating.

Other notable mentions include Håvard "rain" Nygaard, who averaged a 1.17 Rating in the title decider, and SK duo Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo and Epitacio "TACO" de Melo - two players who stepped up immensely in the playoffs.

coldzera wins his fifth MVP medal of 2017

Marcelo "coldzera" David, who had the second-highest rating of the tournament at 1.26, led the tournament charts in deaths per round (0.55), KAST (79.7%) and clutches won (10), and was also in the top five in many other categories, including 1+ kill rounds (53.0%) and headshots per round (0.43).

This is the eighth MVP medal won by coldzera in his career, the fifth since the start of the year after he also claimed the award at cs_summit, IEM Sydney, DreamHack Open Summer and EPICENTER.

Its a word meaning "rigged" (if u arent brazilian)

Okay.. I was confused because marmelada in my languange means jelly or some similar shit
2017-12-11 14:52
Dude, really? Taco played okay on the finals and destroyed on the semis, but cold only.played average on the semis and played really well in the rest of the tournament, only.boltz played better than him, but he wasnt that good on the finals

I understand people think it was unfair for TACO. Coldzera's performance in Odense wasn't something new. He's been playing at this same top level for more than a year that it has become mainstream. However TACO on the other hand is known to being consistently putting the worst numbers on the SK team and is called the weaker link of the team, so whenever he performs above his regular level, people lose their minds and unintentionally see things differently. Cold and Boltz were easily the best players this tournament (despite Boltz being underwhelming in the finals he was outstanding before), maybe even thanks to TACO for getting efficient and essential entries, but well, it's none other than his role and his job and he has to embrace the fact that he'll most likely sacrifice himself more than anyone else and damage his numbers for the good of the team.
2017-12-10 23:09
Only person with a brain in this thread. People on these forums judge so harshly purely on stats and it's sad that they can't see past that, but whatever. TACO is the epitome of a selfless player in CS and will do whatever it takes for the stars to shine even if his stats are usually poor, that's what I love about him. I bet no one in this thread has thought about the level of synergy, trust and communication that he has worked on with the core of this team over the last 2 years which goes unaccounted for.

For sure. Yesterday I was thinking if this rivalry has surpassed Fnatic vs NiP in the early years of CS:GO and honestly in my opinion it has, and it's to be continued for much much longer, hopefully. It's healthy to have rivalries in games and we were lacking a decent one for quite a long time.
2017-12-11 20:26
Not really a rivalry when Faze can't win a BoX against SK on lan. Should call it something else.
2017-12-12 11:46
Well, its still closest to a rivalry between two csgo teams as we can get imo. They are the top 2 teams and the matches are always great :) But SK always seem to keep their composure and focus better than faze :(
2017-12-12 18:05
#181
Xyp9x | 
Portugal CRMN1 
Makes sense, but it's the closest we can get to one. Fnatic almost never dropped a BoX vs NiP and won most of them if I recall correctly, but it's the greatest rivalry we ever had if we don't count this one
2017-12-12 19:49
Well the fnatic, NiP rivalry evolved from NiP winning almost all of their games, except for the 1 huge upset at the major, to fnatic slowly winning more and more of their matches. It wasn't really until after fnatic upset NiP at the major that people started considering it a rivalry of sorts. And throughout it NiP did probably win more games than fnatic, depends where you think the rivalry ended.
