s1mple wins StarSeries MVP award

MIRAA
February 26th, 2018 00:37

Natus Vincere star Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev is the Most Valuable Player (MVP) of StarSeries i-League Season 4 by HLTV.org and betway.

The 20-year-old won the race for the award with a dominant display in the grand final, averaging a 1.56 rating and 98.0 damage - which, however, was not enough for his team to beat mousesports.

Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev, who had 1+ ratings in 19 of the 22 games he played in Kiev, was the joint highest-rated player in the tournament at 1.32, together with Timothy "autimatic" Ta and Dan "apEX" Madesclaire, and was in the top five in 12 other stats categories, leading six of them, including most clutches won (19), opening kills (100) and opening duel success (75.8%).

s1mple wins his third MVP medal

With his impressive displays, s1mple beat mousesports trio Miikka "suNny" Kemppi, Tomáš "oskar" Šťastný and Robin "ropz" Kool, all of whom stood out in the team's title-winning campaign.

s1mple now has his third MVP award - he won his first two at ESL One New York 2016 and at DreamHack Winter 2017. He also becomes the first player to win an MVP medal despite not being part of the winning team of the tournament.

In that way snax should get MVP of ESL NEW YORK 2016, in spite of loosing. So it's unfair I guess. The events are made for money nowadays. It's sad, when youre looking for money earnings.

Guardian was 1st or 2nd best player in groups (carried them vs SK to go 3:0) if I am not mistaken and played very well whole event and went totally ham in final, plus considering fact how hard he got denied in his 3rd major final I think they could give it to him as consolation prize

Is this the first time that a losing player gets the HLTV MVP Award?
2018-02-26 00:38
HLTV will probably start doing it because of how many kids cried about it.
2018-02-26 00:39
you think someone else deserved mvp? lmao s1mple 1v5 every single game. no one else comes close
2018-02-26 00:41
I never said he didn't deserve it. My point is that previous tournaments people complained when the highest player was on a team that lost and HLTV didn't give them the MVP but now it's diff.
2018-02-26 00:43
it might be also that no one on Mouz preformed well enough for winning the tournament to make up the difference to compare to s1mple. Id imagine if someone got the same or similar stats, that person on the winning team would get mvp, but in this case perhaps no one on mouz had a standout enough performance to even come close to simlpe

Actually not. If one player plays exceptionally well and the rest of the team don't show up, that one player will still play exceptionally well but in the end, teamwork wins the tournament in 99% of cases. It's like in the last FIFA World Cup, even though Germany won, the best player was Messi, because he carried Argentina to the finals but in the end, Germany had a better TEAM. Same here with Na'Vi x Mousesports.
2018-02-26 00:44
Then you don't understand what the words most valuable player means.
2018-02-26 00:45
lets see who is more valuable : the guy who gets all freedom to do everything he wants and has his team play around him or the player who IGL's makes the team become a unit and still frags like a god. mmm I think I'd rather have the 2nd one as MVP especially since well.. they won the tournament.
2018-02-26 00:52
Oh. You're one of those morons that thinks a good player on a bad team must only be performing that well because him team mates must somehow be sacrificing all of their own game for him. Conversation over.
2018-02-26 00:57
His team is not bad lmfao, but they do give him freedom.
2018-02-26 01:07
8 frag in 2 ot. Not bad
2018-02-26 01:20

CLEARLY you dont have to win to get the mvp, and clearly ur opinion does no matter, i think you should revisit them numbers again, think about it for a bit, then comeback to us whit a non retarded opinion.

2018-02-26 00:42
Singlehandedly carried his team into the finals and only lost because its hard to 1 v 5 all the time. Without him Na'Vi wouldn't have come close to what they achieved. Pretty sure that's a good case for MVP.

Deserved! s1mple was playing out of this world the whole event. He's definitely the best player in the world right now, no doubts. But he has far beyond not the best teammates, not even close. He got an offer for FaZe, but he chased his "dream" and joined Na'Vi. Now, ironically, his "dream" is turning into his nightmare... Hopefully Na'Vi can improve even more in 2018, otherwise s1mple will just waste his talent away on this team...
2018-02-26 01:35
these undeserved comments are probably from nerds who never had played sports in their whole life lol .Why you can not be MVP of tournament when you are in finals but still lost ? I mean why would only winner team gets MVP and is then only deserved . So for him to get MVP he needs super team to get deserved MVP lol . Well thats sounds unfair for putting this much effort and hours for a sport game just to not get MVP tnx to team mates . its deserved thats all,if he would not showed up in finals and choked then yes maybe then undeserved ,but when you carry so hard whole tournament and lose at finals and still call it undeserved you must be brain damaged or something

2018-02-26 01:51
Do you actually know what an MVP is? Not only was S1mple the best player in the tournament, he also had BY FAR the most to do with his teams success. Nobody on mouz was as vital to their team as S1mple was to his. The fact that his team placed second means nothing. You could've had any player from mouz play in his stead, and Na'Vi wouldn't have cracked the top 4.

Finally, they realize the MVP does not necessarily have to be on the winning team. There have definitely been other times where a player from a team that didn't win that deserved the MVP award a lot more.
2018-02-26 03:16
If impactful frags can be measured. I think edward is more deserved for the whole tournament. Yes simple has better aim. But sure edward save them so many rounds even him as bait to simple.

lul shut up hater no1 was close on impact to s1mple he's easily first on entrys and clutch

Im not hating anyone even i admire simple aim. But for edward somehow people tend to forget his contribution.
