s1mple claims DH Marseille MVP award

MIRAA
April 22nd, 2018 19:23

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.

gla1ve is so sad, his mvp only remembered as "BTW" in s1mple's news
2018-04-23 11:46
0 IMPACT IN THE FINALS??? he had 22 kills and over 100 adr but his team only got 4 rounds. Its honestly a joke at this point with simple always going positive nad putting in work but the old bois zeus flamie and edward falling behind.

Lol he is a greedy bastard running around, getting 1-2 kills every round and then dying. Maybe he can take the necessary duels at the correct time and instead of leaving the rest of the work on his teammates who are total bots, he can work together with them and stay alive enough to grant them rounds

The argument is that S1mple had the biggest impact on his teams performance, by quite a large margin. He lead the tournament charts in 12 categories. Nobody ever achieved such a rating at a high tier tournament before. You could replace anyone on Astralis and they would still do good. Take S1mple out of Navi and they will drop into the realm of irrelevancy. Your arguments why anyone else should‘ve gotten the MVP?

„Because his midround calling was on point and he still fragged good“ is no argument for him deserving the MVP. And where did you get the idea from that S1mple‘s frags were not impactful? Also, you have to look at the whole tournament. And S1mple was the most impactful player there, as the charts show. Any other arguments? Some relevant ones though this time please.

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
2018-04-22 19:31
And he still got the MVP of the tournament, which was given by dreamhack, pls next time read the article before you talk

Despite it should not. It should be given to the most valuable player of all players, which is S1mple by a large margin. You could replace everyone on Astralis and they would still be okay, you can‘t replace S1mple without NaVi dropping to irrelevancy.

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.

2018-04-22 21:24
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.

Since when its easy to be a star with bots ? Maybe on a tier 3 team, and he carried those "bots" to second final, also its mvp of the TOURNAMENT not only this game where he still played great
2018-04-22 19:54
electronic was just behind him, also top performer till the GF's, we cant say that he carried them all the time this tournament
2018-04-22 19:55
and the second that he was won yes
2018-04-22 19:36
Im S1mple fan and happy for him but he did not deserve this one They really want him to get the MVPs so he can get that #1 player spot because Na'Vi wont win shit and the first MVP he won this year was 100% deserved no player was even close to S1mple but this time its way different device or Gla1ve deserved it more imo

2018-04-22 19:44
He did not win ? And he did not have these numbers in the Grandfinal the most important game , thats the difference between this event and Starseries where no player was close to him at all and it basicly was 1v9 but this time it was different and some players in Astralis had same stats like S1mple in the Grandfinal

2018-04-22 20:29
gladly they understood that winning tournament = team achievement and MVP = player individual achievement it's stupid to give MVP to a player just because he won with a team, it's better to give it to a player WHO WAS BETTER INDIVIDUALLY, cuz it's solo award...
2018-04-22 20:35
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. I totally understand why they gave him MVP after starladder tournament he was nuts by then and no player was close to his level but not this time!!! it's totally undeserved.
2018-04-22 20:42
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.
2018-04-22 20:43
He wasn't untouchable. High rating doesn't mean the best. You can have 2-3 kills which can amount to 10 kills that have little to no impact
2018-04-22 20:46
So you must be watching porn instead of this tournament if you are trying to claim S1mple was not the best. and "just rating" bullshit.
2018-04-22 20:47
Whatever dude just count how many clutches xyp had and how many timed he protected the bombsite alone. He's rating is good as well. This is a 2nd time s1mple won mvp without winning the tournament first time it was deserved but not today.
2018-04-22 20:50
It was both times well-deserved dude. There is only one thing that handicaps you to admit it - "<3 device" in your flair.

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.
2018-04-22 20:48
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.

2018-04-22 20:51

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".
2018-04-23 01:02
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.
2018-04-23 05:22
Guess you're not really talking about the record breaker, but about the team breaker, am I right?

Really undeserved. Device should be mvp, because his team at least won.

MOST VALUABLE PLAYER DOESNT NEED TO BE ON WINNING TEAM IF THE WHOLE REASON THE MVP'S TEAM GOT TO THE FINAL WAS BECAUSE OF THAT GUY. FUCK OFF

Who gives a shit about the MVP if you didn't actually pull your team to victory.

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.

S1mple is literally unreal, it's insane how good he is in this game.
2018-04-24 18:57
