Video: EliGE - MVP of IEM Chicago 2019
HLTV.org presents a highlight movie of Jonathan "EliGE" Jablonowski's best plays from IEM Chicago 2019.
At the final Big Event before the off-season, EliGE continued to make his presence on the server known as he garnered his third MVP title of his career, adding to his already strong performances at DreamHack Masters Dallas 2019 and the ESL Pro League Season 9 Finals.
Strong performances against the Frenchmen of G2 and Vitality gave further credit to EliGE's performance, granting the 22-year-old his highest-ever rating at a Big Event at 1.41, beating his previous 1.30 record from ELEAGUE Major Atlanta. Canadian teammates Russel "Twistzz" Van Dulken and Keith "NAF" Markovic were EliGE's closest contention for the MVP title, mustering 1.31 and 1.29 event ratings, respectively, but neither could oust EliGE from the top spot.
EliGE led in six separate stat categories, including rating, ADR (93.9), KPR (0.88), and percentages of rounds with 1+ kills (59.4%). He also joined the entirety of Liquid among the top five players in KAST, and was second only to Twistzz in headshots per round at 0.47.
