s1mple secures BLAST Pro Series Copenhagen MVP award
Oleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev is the winner of the Most Valuable Player (MVP) award of BLAST Pro Series Copenhagen by HLTV.org and betway.
The Na`Vi talent won the race for the award after inspiring the Ukrainian team to win the title with a stunning 1.43 tournament rating - his third-highest at a Big Event in 2018.
Denis "electroNic" Sharipov, who leaves Copenhagen with a 1.32 rating, was the only other contender for the MVP medal, but his team-leading 1.54 rating in the grand final was not enough for the Russian to get ahead of his teammate.
s1mple was in the top five in 14 stats leaderboards, leading ten of them, including rating, damage per round (94.4), kills per round (0.97) and opening duel success (62.9%).
With this award, s1mple takes his medal tally up to eight, with six of those honors coming in 2018 (StarSeries Seasons 4 and 5, DreamHack Masters Marseille, CS:GO Asia Championships, ESL One Cologne and now BLAST).
