flusha claims IEM Katowice MVP award

fnatic's Robin "flusha" Rönnquist is the winner of the Most Valuable Player (MVP) award of IEM Katowice 2018 by HLTV.org and betway.

The 24-year-old scooped the award after excelling in the title decider, in which he averaged a team-leading 1.30 rating following a sensational performance on the final map, Train, where he fired his team to victory with two stunning aces, a +21 KDD and an average 103 damage. 

Robin "⁠flusha⁠" Rönnquist, who also had the joint-highest rating in the semi-final win over Liquid and was fnatic's second-best player in the group stage victory against FaZebeat off competition for the award from teammate Freddy "⁠KRIMZ⁠" Johansson and from Nikola "⁠NiKo⁠" Kovač, with Ladislav "⁠GuardiaN⁠" Kovács having also been a strong contender for the honour.

flusha wins his first MVP medal

The Swedish player had the highest tournament rating at 1.32 and also features in the IEM Katowice stats leaderboards in ten other categories, leading in three - ADR (92.0), damage difference per round (19.2) and percentage of rounds with at least one kill (55.7%).

This is the first MVP medal won by flusha, who, however, has three other MVP awards to his credit, after inspiring fnatic to win SLTV StarSeries X, fragbite Masters 3 and the ESL One Cologne 2015 Major.

No before the final they were pretty even, but in the final Flusha was just carrying hard
2018-03-05 09:17
Before the final they were pretty even, I agree with that, but Krimz was always a little bit better in every single game. And I don't think that one game should decide the MVP, especially not when Krimz was the second best even in the final. Though flusha was the reason they won the final, maybe that outweights all the other games? They should split it! :)

2018-03-05 00:58
honestly he did cheat for a bit but that was way back... its just haters who are mad that he's good so they say he's still cheating and that's the only reason he's good when in fact he's just a super smart player

2018-03-05 01:10
oh ok, that was actually the first. The second was the ace to to send fnatic into overtime. clips.twitch.tv/AliveAuspiciousTroutDend..
2018-03-05 01:12
Oh, was so focused on the clutch, I didn't even notice he got all kills before LOL :) Amazing! thank you buddy :P
2018-03-05 01:13
The second ace was in 30th round if im not mistake. He literally carried fnatic into the ot.
2018-03-05 01:13
Thank you:)
2018-03-05 01:14
2nd ace was on 14-15 to force overtime on train.

So rigged scene most blatant cheater of all-time in ''pro'' lvl of csgo/css or 1.6. And volvo gives 0 fucks about that. Remember train very hard kids maybe someday you can be good like flusha :D

teammates should happily give the guy like 15% of their prize $$. Flusha basically took the team on his back and carried them through the finish line on train... sick performance

You know if we can watch IEM in Znipe? I'm pretty tired of spasmic video editing during matches, more fun to follow a particular player.

1.67, 1.72 and 1.34 rating on the maps fnatic won during the grand final, what a beast. This guy definitely handles the pressure, you can see the meaning of the word "experience" when you see how he played this final, particularly on train. That winning mentality is incredible and FaZe kind of lacks players like him. Only GuardiaN seems to be the one who constantly steps up when it's needed. Lekro had a great tournament too, what a sick player.
