Video: Ax1Le - MVP of ESL Pro League Season 13

We've put together a highlight reel with Sergey "⁠Ax1Le⁠" Rykhtorov's best plays during ESL Pro League Season 13, which saw him earn his first MVP medal.

Ax1Le was named the MVP of ESL Pro League Season 13 after playing a key role in Gambit's second-place finish in the tournament. The 18-year-old was remarkably consistent the entire competition, which he finished with a 1.28 rating, the third-highest overall, just behind Aleksandr "⁠s1mple⁠" Kostyliev and Mathieu "⁠ZywOo⁠" Herbaut.

Ax1Le had only one bad map in the entire tournament

The Russian rifler, who ended 13 of the 23 maps that he played with ratings higher than 1.25, was also amongst the tournament's top performers in seven other stats categories, including KAST (75.3%), KDD (+137), and kills per round (0.81).

Press play below to check out the highlight reel - created by Filip "filq" Szatkowski - to relive Ax1Le's best moments during the tournament against teams like Natus Vincere, NIP, Astralis, FURIA, Heroic.

Not really, he choked a lot of easy shots in the earlier games, but if Ax1Le would've not been in the server then yes he was.
