Magisk claims BLAST Pro Series Lisbon MVP award

MIRAA
December 15th, 2018 23:44

Emil "Magisk" Reif is the winner of the Most Valuable Player (MVP) award of BLAST Pro Series Lisbon by HLTV.org and betway.

The 20-year-old scoops the honour thanks to his remarkable consistency, having recorded 1.25+ ratings in every map won by Astralis throughout the tournament. This ultimately set him apart from teammate Peter "dupreeh" Rasmussen, who had a disappointing performance on Cache in the final, in what was a very close race for the award.

Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev was also in contention for the prize, but he fell off the radar on the last two maps of the final, which brought his tournament rating down to 1.22.

Magisk wins his first MVP award

Magisk, who averaged a 1.39 rating - his second best at a Big Event -, had the highest rating of the event, together with dupreeh, and led the tournament charts for KDD (+68), damage difference per round (+26.4), deaths per round (0.51) and total headshots (86).

This is Magisk's very first MVP award, capping off a fantastic year from the 20-year-old, who has averaged a 1.17 rating at Big Events since joining Astralis, in February.

Statpad1mple should be out of the top 10 tbh. His exit/eco frags are useless and him saving his guns all the time DO NOT help his team to win at all, that’s why they can only win when ELECTRONIC is carrying his ass. Device = winner S1mple = stat padder

Who just plays for the kills. Like imagine taking 40k in a easy match or increasing kills by taking eco or exit frags so that he in scoreboard looks good.

2018-12-16 00:06
They tell you right in the article why he didnt win it He was worse in the grand finals simple as that
2018-12-16 00:13
like in IEM Chicago device was worse than dupreeh in finals with same event rating?
2018-12-16 00:42
Dupreeh wasnt in the running it was device or Xyp9x Dupreeh had far too many eco rounds and device was better in maps won
2018-12-16 00:47
so why their rating doesnt account for ecos? if you cant trust rating then it shouldnt be used in the first place.
2018-12-16 00:48
Dupreeh had the lowest playoffs rating in the team Device carried quarters and was also incredibly important in semis unlike dupreeh I couldnt remember why so i had to check
