rain claims PGL Major Antwerp MVP award

The Norwegian wrote his name in Counter-Strike's history books after a special run in Antwerp.

Håvard "⁠rain⁠" Nygaard will have the Most Valuable Player by HLTV and BitSkins.com medal to match his first Major trophy after a fantastic performance in Belgium for FaZe. The veteran outperformed all three of the younger stars on the team, pulling crucial frags out of the hat whenever his team needed him most.

This is the 27-year-old's first MVP medal since ECS Season 4 Finals, and marks the third FaZe player to claim such award in 2022.

rain topped the tournament with a 1.24 rating, but what makes him stand out from the rest of the crowd was his incredible impact rating, clocking in at 1.47, the highest from any player in Antwerp. Other categories topped by the Norwegian include opening kills per round (0.20), but he is also present in the top charts for total kills, headshots, and damage per round.

Some of rain best performances came in the playoffs, proving his status as a big game player. His semi-finals display against Spirit (1.33 rating) put him as one of the frontrunners in the race, but the jewel in his crown was cut in the grand final against Natus Vincere (1.49 rating) where he took over the server on Nuke with 30 frags to power FaZe to the title. His group stage performances were also fantastic, most notably against Copenhagen Flames (1.30 rating) and Bad News Eagles (1.55 rating).

The two closest contenders for the MVP award were Valeriy "⁠b1t⁠" Vakhovskiy and of course, Aleksandr "⁠s1mple⁠" Kostyliev. The Ukrainian duo put up great numbers across the whole tournament, but rain simply outclassed them in the final.

For real! All the -rain he’s washed! +jks rain sucks, also -karrigan he’s also washed. I’ve said it from the beginning, rain is a fucking monster and has been for years honestly. Of course he’s human and has bad days but his good days far outweigh the bad, same for the igl karrigan. Dude is a fucking rock star. He pulls points back out of nowhere and his decision making/Dedication to his team and the game is almost unmatched and has been for a long time. So glad he went back to faze. Not a faze or Navi fan but rain and karrigan are far from washed. They are the backbone of faze and have been sense day one of joining the team. Glad these guys got their medals. And awesome freaking job Rain! Now keep it up. I’d much rather see faze win than Navi. Lol love watching Navi play won’t lie but dam im getting sick of all the simple dick riders!

doesn’t that show how great and functional faze are? Constantly adaptable and constantly changing in their largest threat making them unpredictable, take Man City for example always having a different top goal scorer every season, same way fazes Stars are fluid in the sense that any one of them can be take over

Personally peak rain > peak yekindar by some distance and maybe they did change up rain to be a lot more explosive because it seemed like he was getting flashed in and setup a lot more just my 2 thoughts though

yes they should get major mvp because they played well in katowice and epl you fucking donkey

no, its u dont understand *before major* if faze win major then mvp will be ropz, broky or twistz(cuz they had good rating and everyone expected them to get MVP), i dont think even 1 person expected rain to be best player at major(cuz his stats were worse then faze`s trio) i dont say tournament MVP should get player based on last 3+ months, just rain wasnt first to claim the title of major MVP(even in his team)

How hard is it for you to understand that every entry fragger in this world except from maybe yekindar is inconsistent? And dont come with that "its ez to farm stats as entry" again, because thats a retarded take.

hltv.org/stats/players/openingkills?star.. lets check these stats most of them arent entry fraggers, so why they have so good entry rating? cuz they have good aim/gamesense(most of them, cuz few players are overrated here) even rain has 1.19 entry rating, so thats mean that he is good at entry but bad at just holding position(and btw he has 0.93 rating for t side, even worse than many not entry players)

Omg. Opening kills are NOT entry kills.
2022-05-23 14:04
Entry fragger kills comes on executes which is usually in the last 40 seconds of the round. Opening duels is something else. Your list is useless.

"its almost same thing" Haha, ok. "if not, then how u can know rain is good entry? if hltv doesnt have these stats?" Because I watch matches and dont only read stats?? There has never been stats for entry frags and tha is exactly why most entry fraggers get so much on hltv by kids like you. You probably hate on igls and supports too . Keep reading your stats.

Stats are numerical values, attempting to display a player's impact in their games. It obviously makes more sense that watching games is a better way to see if the player is finding more impact than just reading stats.

This it the second member to have a massive glow up on this team, the first being broky. Karrigan has also been playing out of his fucking mind, getting crucial clutches and multi kills far more often And what's even scarier is that they still look like they can improve. Ropz and twistzz barely showed up in this grand final, for example... What a squad, what a win!

JKS did so good for the team, not only playing good in the tourney, but playing good enough to make people say -rain which led rain to go beast mode to prove himself

i dont think i have ever been so happy for someone getting a major mvp...this is so well deserved. i personally believed in rain all along, i always knew he was still a monster and got so pissed off by those "-" comments...this moment is so sweet. gj champ!
2022-05-23 01:09
Well deserved for Rain, but also sad seeing Navi not win most likely cause the war happening have influenced them. Still awesome though they managed 2nd place with all that pressure and how hard mentally it must been for them with all thats happening.

Deserved! Rain is the core of this international team. He's there since Team Kinguin back in 2015 w Maikelele, ScreaM, fox and SKYTTEN. 7 years of hard work, ups and downs and a lot of restarts.
2022-05-23 04:30

rainMONSTA ! So deserved ! Congratulations bro, you shut down so many mouth !
2022-05-23 07:30
We'll see Faze era it is or not. But to be honest, Navi dominated in 2021 because there was no god teams like Vitality (2020) or Astralis (2018-2020) Everyone is reshuffling, no competition at all. It will be hard for Faze winning every tournament when at least 1 good team like Navi is alive

Its kinda cool. First international team to ever win a major. First Norwegian to ever win a major, first Estonian to ever win a major, first Canadian to ever win a major and first Latvian to ever win a major.
2022-05-23 09:02
deserved
2022-05-23 09:35
Well deserved. He and Karrigan are definitely the factor that was missing in previous Faze deep runs.
