Video: gla1ve - MVP of IEM Beijing 2019

We have put together a highlight reel of Lukas "gla1ve" Rossander's best plays at IEM Beijing 2019, where he was crowned MVP.

gla1ve was the only player on Astralis without an MVP medal to his name, but he changed that at IEM Beijing where he was named the tournament's top player and awarded the medal for his individual performance.

Astralis played lights out, beating ViCi and 100 Thieves in the group stage to secure a semi-final spot, where they made quick work of FaZe, giving up just two rounds in a two-map series before going on to win the event with another clean series in the best-of-five grand final against 100 Thieves.

Throughout the nine maps Astralis played and won, gla1ve only had one with a rating below 1, and it was just barely below average, a 0.98 on Nuke in their group stage match against 100 Thieves. On the upside, he showed great consistency with six maps over 1.50, was the highest-rated player at the event, and had the most ADR (95.2), opening kills per round (0.18), and multikill rounds (56.6%).

Sit back and enjoy the highlight reel from gla1ve's first MVP award-winning performance, which has been put together by our very own Filip "filq" Szatkowski, featuring the Danish in-game leader's best plays during Astralis' run at IEM Beijing.

Yeah, karrigan is insane (I am really sad because of fact that he is wasting his talent with such dogshit and toxic players like ropz and trashJ) but he is worse than gla1ve in all aspects

This guy is ridiculous. You can dislike him for some subjective reason but as a CSGO player? Insane.

from just a raw skill perspective, I must say those kills were not impressive lol
2019-11-18 19:18
he's smart, not particularly skilled, that's why he's an igl just proves you don't need to be too skilled if you just position yourself correctly and play smart to get frags.
2019-11-18 19:37
ya for sure, hes a player to watch and learn from. Those kills just werent entertaining in a straight up frag movie sense. Maybe if they highlighted the teamwork of some of those plays it might be more interested. Lots of just straight up body shots and good positioning.
2019-11-19 00:37
average brain but 200iq, him and xyp are the smartest players in cs for a reason

Players who play smart cs are so boring to watch sometimes. I like watching clips of players who are willing to push stupidly and risk it all for the hilights. This video just took first place for The most boring clip, and it replaced my old first place which used to be device’s mvp video
