FalleN claims ZOTAC Cup Masters MVP award

MIBR captain Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo is the winner of the Most Valuable Player (MVP) award of the ZOTAC Cup Masters by HLTV.org and betway.

The Brazilian veteran beat off competition from Marcelo "coldzera" David and Jake "Stewie2K" Yip for his remarkable throughout the tournament, having been one of MIBR's best players on six out of the seven maps that the team played (one more than his compatriot and two more than the North American).

It is also worth mentioning that Stewie2K, the highest-rated player of the event, had incredibly high peaks but also had some troughs, finishing two maps with ratings lower or equal to 1.05.

FalleN wins his first MVP medal of 2018

Besides having the highest KDD of the tournament (+61), FalleN was the hardest player to kill (0.45 deaths per round), and boasted the highest KAST (82.1%) and success rate in opening duels (86.4%). He also features in the top 5 in several other stats leaderboards, including percentage of support rounds (21.8%), damage difference per round (+27.5), and AWP kills per round (0.46).

This is the fourth MVP medal of FalleN's career, the first since BLAST Pro Series Copenhagen 2017. Previously, he had been named the best player at DreamHack Austin 2016 and at ESL One Cologne 2017.

And how would you know that?
2018-08-26 19:15
they said in their streams that both of them igl, to give fallen more space to play.
2018-08-26 20:19
I doubt they are it was stated a while ago that Fallen was bak in charge.. after the cold IGL ( and Stew on mirage, and Fallen on cache and inferno ) fiasco
2018-08-27 02:16
I dont remember where, but they confirmed that Cold is not IGL because during the game the IGL role was always naturally going back to Fallen. I guess this is not a role you can just change like that.

Xyp9x |

Yes, agree. I saw/read the interview too and I knew about Cold giving it back to fallen. Was just curious about tarik because the user above said he's also helping the IGL role

2018-08-27 00:16
like fnx and cold too
2018-08-27 01:42
Yes indeed. Surely Cold won't be on top20 list this year due to the lack of team achievements, but I think he is still a top20 player. Now, fnx? I wonder if he is a top 100 player nowadays.

I guess that MVP awards are for all tournaments that are actively followed on HLTV. The level of the tournament doesn't define whether there will be an MVP award. However the better the teams attending the tournament, the more HLTV is going to take care of it.

2018-08-26 17:29
Did you watch the games? His impact was out of this world. As it always is when he is on form.

Because FalleN was the better player through the whole event. Very consistent from the beginning and the most impactful of them all. Stewie2k topped the ratings because he pulled a 2.63 rating out of the last map which balanced his global rating. Coldzera was very good and consistent through the whole event but less impactful. Totally deserved for FalleN.

When fallen shows up playing like this, no one compares. One of the main reasons LG/SK were so dominant even with such bad tactics.
2018-08-27 03:09
Its shitty tier 4 tournament,calm down lol

troll or baiter? this is tier59 tournament. this MVP worths nothing.
2018-08-27 14:14
Whenever fallen played like this in the past, he would humiliate every tier1 team on his way. I was just pointing out how he reminded me of those times yesterday.

he played vs tier988 teams you can put any tier3 pro and he will do the same.
2018-08-27 20:53
No, they won't. I see overrated awpers playing this exact teams and nobody does what fallen did. But you have made your point. MIBR played an easy tournament. Even though they should have, since it was a lot of money on the table.
2018-08-28 01:18
This MVP is like 1/100 of normal MVP
