s1mple claims DH Marseille MVP award

Natus Vincere star Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev is the winner of the DreamHack Masters Marseille MVP award by HLTV.org and betway.

The Ukrainian prodigy capped off a fantastic individual tournament with a 1.30 series rating in the final, which, however, did not keep his team from being soundly beaten by Astralis, especially on the first map, Nuke.

Aleksandr "⁠s1mple⁠" Kostyliev leaves Marseille with a joint career-best 1.52 event rating - the same from DreamHack Open Winter 2017 and from the ELEAGUE Major Boston Main Qualifier - and with +1 ratings in each of the ten maps that he played. He only fell behind a teammate in one match, the 16-4 thrashing of Renegades as the topped the scoreboard for his team in the four series that they played, against fnatic, mousesports, Gambit and Astralis.

s1mple wins his fourth MVP medal

He led the tournament charts in 12 categories besides rating, including damage per round (99.4), kills per round (1.00), rounds with at least one kill (62.8%) and opening frags per round (0.18). He was also one of the hardest players to kill, averaging 0.60 deaths per round, and had five 1vsX situations won.

Other notable mentions include s1mple's teammate Denis "⁠electronic⁠" Sharipov, and the Astralis trio of Lukas "⁠gla1ve⁠" Rossander - who was the MVP of the tournament by DreamHack -, Nicolai "⁠device⁠" Reedtz and Andreas "⁠Xyp9x⁠" Højsleth

This is the fourth MVP award of s1mple's career, after he also claimed the medal at ESL One New York 2016, DreamHack Winter 2017 and StarSeries i-League Season 4, and the second that he was won despite being not featuring for the winning team.

Astralis outplayed navi, clearly s1mple was the best player in this tournemant, but IMO gla1ve should get the mvp award, cuz his mid-round calling was on point and he still frags good. s1mple has a huge amount of frags f.e. nuke, but his impact on the rounds wasnt the best, xyp9x and magisk have got huge impact

Expected by hltv who only look at stats, glaives strats are more valuable than any one player could ever be. This tourney proves it.

how old are u ? pretty sure you are young enough to never see him playing. its just like futeball, some people says pele is the best o all the time, but others ronaldo or messi. The olders says pele, the youngest messi or ronaldo. Same as heaton, if you saw him playing, you know about him. at that time, cs wasnt givin away so much money in competitions, but was the gold time for cs.

how can you say dicked over him when he managed to keep up against probably the best team rn also why does everyone seem to forget its the most valuable player award and you obv give it to the hottest piece in the tournament
2018-04-22 19:37
3 replies
Because they did dick over him. He went +8 kills in the series, and thats only because he went 22-16 on nuke. Nothing near s1mple's normal level. 22-16, in a map which navi lose 16-4. If you can look past the stats, you may realise that those frags are pretty un impactful, considering they aren't winning any rounds with them. You can pick up 3 kills at the end of every round, finishing with 48 frags while losing 0-16. Is that useful? Na'vi won ZERO clutches. Astralis won FIVE clutches, a few of them against s1mple himself. Nope, he got completely shut out by better CS players.

I would argue that s1mple is the better FRAGGER. But that doesn't make him a better CS player, there's more to CS than just aim — xyp9x is living proof of that — he doesn't need insane aim to win the most unlikely of clutches. most of Astralis' players honestly have a better ingame IQ than s1mple.

Sadly they don't understand that you can't give mvp award just because of ratings xyp9x had way more impactful frags and godlike clutches on top of actually winning the tournament. Also device and glaive were better candidates then simple.

It's not just about ratings, it's about who was the best individually. And s1mple was untouchable at this event dude. I think it is not fair to give an MVP to a player just because his team won. They got the trophy for that victory. But MVP Award must be given to a player who was the best and the most consistent through all tournament. S1mple was that player.

teams winning tournaments -> receiving Trophies player showing performances against top teams consistently -> receiving MVPs #EzLogic

IDK the logic but the decision makes the award meaningless, Astralis players not going to care they didn't win some meaningless award they won the title and money and that's all that matters in a team game.

Nah this MVP award does not matter anymore because of the decisions HLTV have made with it, 2 tournaments already where the losing player receives the award, I don't think HLTV truly knows what an MVP is, you can check all other eSports and real sports as well only retard HLTV has this logic that you are the most valuable when you lose. Giving award on stats only most retarded thing in the history of eSports.

HLTV exaclty knows what is true MVP (Most Valuable PLAYER). not a team? you know? PLAYER! It doesn't mean that his team win or not, it means that he was THE BEST PLAYER ON THE TOURNAMENT INDIVIDUALLY AND BY NUMBERS. NUMBERS NEVER LIE. It is fair enough to give an MVP to player even tho his team is top2, cuz he was the best and the most consistent through the whole event... If you can't get it, then you rather retarded or trolling idk...

Check any other eSport or real sport having better stats and losing doesn't make you better than the player who has good stats and wins, this is literally the only retard site that does that. Astralis player deserved it they played amazing any of their players deserves this award more than s1mple but hey keep thinking this is some sick logic that isn't applied anywhere which makes it an anomaly and retarded.

MVP award in a TEAM game you absolute retard holy shit, having most kills doesn't make you more valuable than a player who elevates his team and wins yet still having really good stats. Let me guess you're one of those garbage players that solo ques and knows nothing about this game?

Sorry m8 a player who has good stats and elevates his team and makes his team mates better is 1000000% more valuable than someone who just frags. This type of shit shows how far gone this game is at this point awarding the pug stars over the champions, this award means literally nothing now. You're also a really shitty baiter go play some more solo que pug kid cause that's the only thing you know about CS.

Imo this is a good decission. All of the astralis players have put up insane ratings in this event,so its a team effort. But electronic and s1mple were the only ones who have shown up in NaVi. In essence s1mple's contibution is much more worthy to Navi than any of the astealis's players to astralis.

Yes both S1mple and Electronic had a good event but they lost, hopefully you can see my logic, I think literally anyone on Astralis could of got the award everyone of them played well and deserve MVP of the tournament they won.

My theory is that hltv didn't want to give the MVP award to a danish player because HLTV is a danish company and they don't want to look biased :P but in reality, gla1ve should've won this. Let's be real. s1mple is an amazing fragger, but winning the tournament has to count for more.

Wins nothing in 2018: "BEST PLAYER EVER. WHAT A GOD". Coldzera wins everything in 2016 and 2017: "WHAT A BAITER. THIS MONKEY ONLY GETS KILLS BECAUSE OF TACO. LUCKY SK PLAYS AROUND HIM". HLTV always delivers the right amount of dementia. Well. S1mple playing awesome, as always. But gla1ve should have gotten it. EDIT: Let's not forget about "numbers never lie, someone so godly consistent is surely the best player". But whenever talking about Cold breaking all records: "well. He only gets exit frags and is an eco hunter. It boosts his stats".

It's not just stats, it's the playstyle deployed to attain those stats. Player one is a conservative player, almost always last alive. Player two is an aggressive player, often taking first contact. While both playstyles are somewhat necessary in a team, for player two to achieve the same rating and K/D ratio as player one, he needs to be insanely talented. Figure out which is which on your own.

Who gives a shit about the MVP if you didn't actually pull your team to victory.
2018-04-24 09:56
the folly of basing these things on hard stats like this. Simple was clearly impactful, to the point where astralis wouldnt even peak him in the finals. Dude is scary. But if you watch the games, Astralis didnt peek anyone the whole tournament basically. They shot people through walls and smokes when they corralled them, or picked them off with a sniper as they crossed their cross hair. To not give this mvp to xyp is pretty insane, he was everywhere, he broke their game plans and held them for the flanks of glaive and dupreeh. Device would be a close second, he carried them pretty hard with scout in finals and semi finals.
