ZywOo becomes ECS Season 7 Finals MVP

Outclassing the competition at ECS Season 7 Finals, Mathieu "⁠ZywOo⁠" Herbaut has earned his second Most Valuable Player award by HLTV.org and betway at the London event.

The 18-year-old put up a supreme showing over the course of the $500,000 tournament, leading Vitality to their second title in their last three appearances with a 1.41 average rating across 10 maps played.

The group stage saw ZywOo begin to set up his claim with five out of six maps rated above 1.00 as Vitality claimed two wins over Complexity and suffered a loss to North, but once ECS reached the playoffs stage, there was no contest. The Frenchman topped off his run with out-of-this-world performances in the bracket, with 1.72 and 1.81 series ratings up against NRG and FURIA, respectively.

ZywOo was in a class of his own at ECS Season 7 Finals

The Frenchman's impact is obvious from his tournament-leading numbers in overall rating (1.41), assists per round (0.17), clutches won (7), and high placings in nearly every other category, such as ADR (92.2), KPR (0.86), DPR (0.56), and KAST (78.8%), among others.

With this award, ZywOo now has two MVP medals in his cabinet after claiming his first one two weeks ago at cs_summit 4, continuing his amazing form since Vitality formed late last year.

Not their fault that some teams suck online. But ofc its lower tier lan if there the best team are not attending. For example Liquid and ENCE are known to be bad online teams and they usually perform on lan and play almost every final.

Just tell me why would top teams use all their strats and practice for event that doesn't even have crowd or stage? ENCE and Liquid were prepared for DH Dallas and it showed, and once again we saw how good Vitality was in a big event.
2019-06-10 14:15
They play for prestige. For beating the better teams. Crowd, price money etc means nothing to these top teams. You have a serious lack of basic knowledge when it comes to the cs scene. So i'll just stop trying to argue.

Cause noone takes cs_summit seriously? Liquid and ENCE prepared for DH dallas instead of summit, and it showed. Vitality failed when it was bigger stage, ENCE and Liquid played grand final.
2019-06-10 07:49
don't bother, this guy thinks there were like 30 big events in 2015 and yes, summit is a meme event ECS tier2 max, slightly better than Blast

We were talking about country's scenes at the moment, not in 2015? Atm finnish team, ENCE is better than any french team and has achieved more than any french team in past 12 months. Finland has more achievements past 2 years than France, doesn't that mean that Finland has better pro scene at the moment? imo it does
2019-06-12 10:29
Well vitality and ENCE are very very very close
2019-06-12 18:08

Its kinda sad for the vitality players, that every mvp award in tournaments they win will go to zywoo 😂
2019-06-09 22:15
True, but some of the other players have played really well on Vitality's side like Alex

Yes, sad is my point. Alex played very nice, but zywoo is just better. It would be a nice story for alex to get the mwp in london, but no 😅
