s1mple awarded BLAST Premier Fall Final MVP
The 'Undertaker' has continued to impress, adding the career-18th medal to his collection and the record-matching seventh this year.
Oleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev has been awarded the HLTV.org x BitSkins.com Most Valuable Player of the BLAST Premier Fall Final after leading Natus Vincere to the title in Copenhagen, following up on his massive performance at PGL Major Stockholm with yet another standout showing.
As always, the Ukrainian superstar was a force to be reckoned with throughout the entire tournament, and he locked in the individual accolade after a decisive display in the grand final against Vitality, beating out his rival Mathieu "ZywOo" Herbaut and teammates Valeriy "b1t" Vakhovskiy and Denis "electroNic" Sharipov to the MVP award.
s1mple ended BLAST Premier Fall Final as the highest-rated player (1.39) and scored the most kills per round (0.93), AWP kills per round (0.39), and rounds with at least one kill (58.8%), also finishing among the top players in several other leaderboards, such as ADR (90.7), DPR (0.59), and KAST (76.4%).
Awarded the 18th MVP medal in his career at BLAST Premier Fall Final, s1mple has added the seventh to his collection this year, matching Nicolai "device" Reedtz's record of MVPs earned in a calendar year from 2018. Before the year closes, s1mple will have the chance to surpass that record as Natus Vincere will look to close the year on a high at the BLAST Premier World Final in mid-December.
