MSL wins DreamHack Masters Stockholm MVP award

Professeur
September 2nd, 2018 21:54

Mathias "MSL" Lauridsen is the Most Valuable Player (MVP) of DreamHack Masters Stockholm by HLTV.org and betway.

In a tight race, North's in-game leader was awarded with the HLTV.org x betway MVP award after his team's victory in Stockholm.

Taking the AWPing duties on himself, MSL was an impactful player over the course of the tournament, finding 40 opening kills (team-best) and securing 94 AWP frags. MSL also played better in the more important matches, having his two best maps in the grand final win over Astralis where he earned a 1.59 rating on Dust2 and a 1.53 rating on Overpass.

MSL earned his first MVP award

Even though rating-wise MSL was overshadowed by his teammates Valdemar "valde" Bjørn Vangså and Philip "aizy" Aistrup, the AWPer was one of the stand-out players in North's wins, in which he averaged a 1.24 rating. On Astralis' side, Nicolai "device" Reedtz and Andreas "Xyp9x" Højsleth were the two main candidates for the MVP award going into the final, but neither stood out enough to claim the MVP award in a defeat.

This is MSL's first MVP award, which he earned in his first Big Tournament win since EPICENTER: Moscow in 2016.

Aizy didnt show up as much as MSL did in the final and had sub 10 frags in 2 maps in the semi final. In reality valde should have gotten it but MSL carried the final map and had huge opening kill impact until the final where he carried mid round so I understand him getting it.
2018-09-02 22:02
I think the difference between msl playing before this tournament (spectating) and now makes him deserve it more than his teammates even if they performed slightly better
