torzsi named MVP of ESL Pro League Season 18
The Hungarian AWPer claims his first-ever HLTV x 1xBet MVP award and the last one of CS:GO.
Four MOUZ players — with the exception of Kamil "siuhy" Szkaradek — had a case for winning the award, and Oleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev and Valeriy "b1t" Vakhovskiy were also in the award race before the grand final.
torzsi's excellent consistency and his performance in MOUZ's last three series, and particularly the grand final, is what ultimately catapulted him above his teammates to edge out the race for the award.
The Hungarian AWPer was his team's highest-rated player in their quarter-final and semi-final series against G2 (1.27 rating) and ENCE (1.23), and was the key difference-maker in the title-decider against NAVI where he led the server with a 1.29 rating.
torzsi's consistency across the group stage and playoffs earned him a handful of spots on the statistics leaderboard, including in deaths per round (0.53, 4th fewest), KAST (77.6%, #5), AWP kills per round (0.42, #2), and total opening kills (74, #4).
This is torzsi's first MVP award and the last HLTV MVP to be handed out in CS:GO, with IEM Sydney set to offer the first medal for Counter-Strike 2.
