s1mple claims StarSeries i-League Season 7 MVP award

Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev is the winner of the Most Valuable Player (MVP) award of StarSeries i-League Season 7 by HLTV.org and betway.

The Ukrainian superstar added another MVP award to his name, earning it with a stellar performance over 19 maps played at the tournament in Shanghai. s1mple topped the charts in numerous categories such as rating (1.43), ADR (92.9), and KPR (0.93), as well as multikill rounds (57.5%), KAST (77.0%) and success in opening duels (69.2%).

s1mple awarded with his first MVP award of 2019

While Denis "electronic" Sharipov also had a phenomenal tournament, boasting a 1.33 rating at StarSeries i-League Season 7, he once again fell short of the MVP medal as he was outshined by his teammate s1mple.

This is the ninth MVP award of s1mple's career, coming from the Natus Vincere's first tournament win of 2019.

This guy is just on another level. It’s rare he even has a bad game, never has a bad tournament. No matter how his team does, he always performs. I don’t think that can be said about any other player right now. Also, nice to see the youngling Brollan have a good tournament.

2019-04-07 15:18
8 top 10 teams and tier 3 xDDD nice brain
2019-04-07 15:33
Good to see you again Yeah, the device might obtain more MVP medals of high quality than S1mple, however, Cs go is team match and dev1ce get nothing without his teammate when they are in matches. Btw the power of two teams are different, Navi only has 2 players in top 13 of 2018, but all Astrails teammates belong to.
2019-04-07 15:33
Other words s1mple did more effort for success of his team then dev1ce for his. And notice that s1mple grabbed mvp on tournaments where his team not lifted a main trophy, always have solid performance, outstanding stats and crazy highlights. Play aggressive style and win open duels not only licking corners in contrary other awpers.
2019-04-07 16:18
+1 He is our favorite as he has the ability to turn the situation and straight carries the team to win, so we thought that he is merited to deserve more but he was not so fortunate as the same age as Magisk who grabbed Major×2 within an incredible team Maybe Zeus+Edward both need to be replaced as they are getting old but alternative they are still the necessary part of Navi for the current achievements All my concern who would be the assessor to keep this team forward further after Zeus left, S1mple still young but the days seem to flash by

EZ 4 the best player in the world, GGWP Sasha. Electronic was also insane nonetheless, hope he keeps up the form he showed this tournament.
