Video: s1mple - MVP of BLAST Pro Series Copenhagen
Filip "filq" Szatkowski has put together a highlight reel that celebrates Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev's MVP-worthy performance at BLAST Pro Series Copenhagen 2018.
Although Natus Vincere had a slow start against Cloud9, who were fielding Soham "valens" Chowdhury instead of Maikil "Golden" Selim in the first day of the tournament, the Ukrainians managed to beat the North Americans, 16-13, with s1mple topping the scoreboard with an impressive 1.58 rating.
In the following matches, the 21-year-old star kept leading the way for Natus Vincere, averaging a 1.43 rating at the event, the highest of BLAST Pro Series Copenhagen 2018.
In the grand final against NiP, Denis "electronic" Sharipov was the main figure for his team, but s1mple earned the MVP award due to his dominant performance throughout the tournament. The Ukrainian prodigy was the best player from BLAST Pro Series Copenhagen in a total of 10 stats charts, including KDD (+74), kills (182) and rounds with at least one kill (62.9%). Moreover, s1mple was featured in the top five of four other categories, such as KAST (78.2%) and opening kills (22).
