device scoops IEM Chicago MVP award
The Danish AWPer won the race for the award for his remarkable consistency throughout the tournament, especially in the playoffs, in which he was Astralis' top performer with a 1.19 rating.
Russel "Twistzz" Van Dulken was a leading candidate for the accolade prior to the best-of-five final, but his 0.88 rating in the match saw him slide out of contention.
device, who averaged a 1.15 rating in Chicago, featured in the stats leaderboards in three categories, KDD (+41), total kills (248) and total AWP frags (103).
This brings device's medal count to ten, with the 23-year-old having been named the MVP of four events this year before IEM Chicago: ECS Season 5 Finals, ELEAGUE Premier, FACEIT Major and BLAST Pro Series Istanbul.
