SHiPZ secures WESG MVP award

Georgi "⁠SHiPZ⁠" Grigorov has been awarded the Most Valuable Player (MVP) of WESG 2018 World Finals by HLTV.org and betway.

The 18-year-old claimed the medal after inspiring Windigo to their biggest victory yet at WESG 2018 World Finals with a team-leading 1.28 rating over the course of the Chinese tournament.

SHiPZ was a consistent force across the Bulgarian side's victories, with 1.00+ ratings in 10 out of 11 map wins, including some huge performances such as a 2.59 rating on Overpass against G2 in the semi-finals of the event and a 1.45 rating on Mirage in the grand final versus AGO.

SHiPZ claims his first MVP award at WESG

The youngster beat one of his final opponents, Dominik "⁠GruBy⁠" Swiderski, to the award, as well as Kenny "⁠kennyS⁠" Schrub, who put up the highest rating at the tournament and was the most consistent, but he mostly garnered great performances up against lower-tier opposition in the earlier stages of WESG.

This is the first MVP medal for SHiPZ, which comes in the Bulgarian's first-ever attendance at a tournament with the award on the line.
