Aerial claims career-first MVP award at BLAST Pro Series Madrid

Jani "Aerial" Jussila has claimed the Most Valuable Player of BLAST Pro Series Madrid award by HLTV.org and betway, securing the first such accolade in his career.

The 25-year-old played a pivotal part in ENCE's run to the title at BLAST Pro Series Madrid, leading the Finnish side with an incredible 1.28 average rating over the course of the Spanish tournament.

Speaking to his consistency, Aerial never once dropped below the 1.00 rating mark in the seven maps ENCE played en route to their first Big-Event triumph, and he capped off his great performance as by far the highest-rated player of the grand final with a 1.41 rating in the series against Astralis.

Aerial secures his first MVP award

Apart from the second-highest rating out of everyone, the Finn's contribution is shown in many other leaderboards, as he belonged to one of the best damage-dealers with 86.4 ADR, which led to 0.79 kills per round and 0.20 assists per round, and outshone everyone in the opening kills department with 0.19 per round.

Aerial has now entered the Most Valuable Player club with the first such award of his career, joining his teammate Jere "sergej" Salo.

I missed that. I thought xseveN was always the 1st one to go although no one is going to leave for a long time (I hope) from that lineup

xseveN did really good in the playoffs of IEM Katowice 2019, so many were picking at Aerial to be the next weak link.

lmao i dont get why anyone ever even suggested roster changes for ENCE, theyre doing great at the moment. aleksib is a good IGL, sergej and aerial are players with amazing potential, allu brings lots of experience and xseven is also a really solid player too

People have to understand that xseveN plays a support role/anchor, therefore, he won't be in a position where he can just ace against glocks or do sexy clutches. He always plays Train Ivy, Nuke Ramp, back of B etc..., positions no one likes to play because its so hard.

He has been working really hard and I would imagine that the rumours of Sunny replacing him have made him push even harder to achieve his full potential.
