Video: s1mple - MVP of DreamHack Masters Spring 2021

Watch Aleksandr "⁠s1mple⁠" Kostyliev do what he does best in a highlight reel from his MVP-worthy performance at DreamHack Masters Spring.

s1mple was named the Most Valuable Player of DreamHack Masters Spring on Sunday following Natus Vincere's title-winning campaign at the event, where the CIS team took down regional rivals Gambit in a convincing three-map affair in the grand final and secured their second trophy of the year.

In celebration of the Ukrainian superstar's incredible performance, which saw s1mple put up godlike numbers such as a 1.41 average rating, 0.91 kills per round, and a 1.52 impact rating, Filip "filq" Szatkowski has put together the best individual plays from the tournament's MVP:

+1 s1mple is the goat of the game, he always make sick plays and has insane performances. Although ZywOo had better impact and carried Vitality more in the last 2 years, I think this year s1mple will be top 1

Gambit and Heroic had it rough against simple. But navi needs him to deliever to win tournaments.
2021-05-13 17:56
Somehow the link doesn't show for me, it also didn't show itself when I wanted to see the video on his clutch vs heroic. Anyone know why?
2021-05-13 17:58
the funny thing is that most of highlight on the video was against Gambit, the top1 right now, this guy is the real top1, zywOo is way behind him, to not say Sh1ro
