EliGE claims DreamHack Masters Dallas MVP award

Liquid's Jonathan "⁠EliGE⁠" Jablonowski has claimed a career-first MVP award by HLTV.org and betway at DreamHack Masters Dallas.

The 21-year-old earned the award after spearheading Liquid's undefeated run at DreamHack Masters Dallas as his team's highest-rated and most consistent player, recording 1.00+ ratings on all 11 maps.

EliGE started off well in the group stage as one of Liquid's key players en route to the playoffs, but it was an incredible performance in the bracket stage, featuring an outstanding 1.59 rating in the semi-final against FURIA and a 1.22 rating in the grand final versus ENCE, that pushed him to the top of the list of MVP candidates.

This is the first MVP award of EliGE's career

In the end, the American outdid his teammate Russel "⁠Twistzz⁠" Van Dulken in the close race to the award, as well as two of his final opponents; Jere "⁠sergej⁠" Salo and Aleksi "⁠allu⁠" Jalli.

EliGE appears in a number of leaderboards with exceptional damage-dealing (84.9 ADR), fragging (0.82 KPR), and clutching (6) – the most notable of which was a quick 1v4 in the late stages of Nuke against FURIA, which helped Liquid close out the opening map.

the tiers are the ones defined by hltv itself it's more like a tiering with regard to the internal influence towards the ranking & the top20 in the end of the year
2019-06-03 00:41
He has majors as tier 1
2019-06-03 00:39
Only major is tier1 according to hltv
2019-06-03 00:41
lol....i think majors are boring af.....60 teams all playing take 3 weeks for the event to finish n shit....ZZZZZZZ.....
2019-06-03 00:49
True, only playoffs are interesting which is like when only top8 teams are remaining
2019-06-03 00:56
exactly.....
2019-06-03 02:17
Too much points difference between tier mvp, I would put like 8,6,4 or 10,8,6 or something like that!

2019-06-03 00:34
3 players were top20 2018. Now it can be 4 in top20 2019 i think. :)

2019-06-03 00:49
Yeah cause Tim + 3 liquid players are gonna make it
2019-06-03 13:46
Ethan and Brehze could make it as well.
2019-06-03 20:38
If nrg wins some trophies and they get mvps.
2019-06-04 14:21
C9 ranked 25th on hltv, highly unlikely we will see tim this time in top20 unless c9 gets better.
