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 FaZe, beat 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.
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.
