zonic named DH Summer MVP

mTw star Danny "zonic" Sørensen has been named the Most Valuable Player of DreamHack Summer 2010.

Sørensen played an instrumental role in mTw's success story at DreamHack Summer as he inspired the Danish side to a first-place finish at the tournament.

The former Asylum member topped the tournament's charts with an impressive 1.56 rating, followed by 1.52 of Martin "trace" Bang and Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund's 1.39. He was also the player to make the most aces - four -, including three in the last match of the competition.


The result represents a turning point for mTw, who had long been desperate to return to winning ways in a major international competition.

mTw, who beat H2k gaming, aAa and Antwerp Aces in the group stages, eased past FairFrag, SK Gaming before meeting H2k in the final, defeating them a second time to win the first prize of €6,312.

nice. he played very well whole tourney

RobbaN as both AWPer and IGL is the best.

robban is a better IGL I agree..but imo walle is a better awper...he just has to train to go back to his old form...'cause 2006 walle awping > 2010 robban awping...And you don't lose your skills, you just forget them ;)

Oh you can for sure lose them. ^^ Ofc he's better if he's able to bring them back, but I don't think he can, he's getting too old for that.

when you click his profile from dreamhack under the event, it says, that his K/D ratio was 1.89 with: Total kills 206 Total deaths 109 K/D Ratio 1.89

Sorry m8 i don´t exactly know. I only know that ratio is calculated using some other factors too besides frags and deaths. Nomad or Nixon might have a better answer. EDIT: I already found out - "Rating takes into account kills per round, survived rounds per round, and rounds with multiple kills." :)

Yes i agree with you. I know many people including myself think that f0rest is better than gtr but when you look at the stats it´s always gtr who is above f0rest.

Frag doesn't really mean you are a GENIUS. GENIUS players are forest, neo, Edward (in my opinion, ofc), spawn. Get_right is only a good aim, that's all. That's what makes forest way better than him.
2010-06-22 02:19
4 replies
Yes i agree with you also. In my opinion neo and f0rest are the two players who just play on their own league of CS. I mean when they are on fire there is nobody to stop them, but the best player is who frags the most and in this case it´s gtr. I have to disagree on the last part of your sentence. gtr is probably the most skilled CS player. You should see his pov demos.
2010-06-22 02:25
Well, then you should say players like tr1p or luurpis are way better than GeT_RiGhT or starix. And honestly, do you?
2010-06-22 04:40
hey ! I agree with that !
2010-06-22 11:25
get_right has pretty much been the player for fnatic this year... f0rest is playing good but not as GTR hes just a monster, all the wins they had against SK this weekend GTR was on top, hes probably still top3 individual player atm with the likes of zonic, GuX, trace sharing the podium... Zonic and trace @ DH were just too much for any team to handle, I'm happy for them that they found their winning ways back! Keep it up mtw, if you'll see sunde coming back to top form, he is in top form but when hez in insane form even zonic can only watch =)
2010-06-22 12:35
of the histoty maybe not, but ATM is the best player in the world IMO. Better than f0rest in very things. SpawN and HeatoN still the bests for me :D they played in the goldtimes of cs.
2010-06-22 01:49
7 replies
Well...I've never seen SpawN, less HeatoN do the things gtr does and honestly, gtr has to fight with face, gux, neo, cyx, hooch, frod, markeloff, sunde, etc, etc. while SpawN and Heaton had not many good opponents. Beside, gtr style is really one of a kind, like moving forward going for the frags without care about what's going on out there.
2010-06-22 02:12
6 replies
The thing is that you can´t really compare heaton with gtr or f0rest. When HeatoN was winning CPL´s and playing for team Sweden, f0rest was killing bots on a lan server.
2010-06-22 02:23
5 replies
Well, I can actually. I've seen GeT_ fragging HeatoN while he was in Begrip, I've seen GeT_ fragging SpawN many times, and I haven't seen Spawn or Heaton killing neo, mooN, prb, hooch, etc. (I'm just giving an example) as GeT_ does/did.
2010-06-22 04:38
4 replies
Yes but you have to underestand HeatoN´s time was long gone at that time. HeatoN is in CS history because thanks to the oldschool players CS is what it is today.

dude put GTR aim against anyone at their best ever in cs history and GTR would win hands down!
2010-06-22 13:27
1 reply
That is expected though ... If someone from the old BETA days could still out aim players today that would mean the game hasn't progressed at all. For me personally Potti is still the best player ever.
2010-06-22 18:29
Well...we are talking about two different games indeed. cs1.5 and cs1.6, and gtr never face any of this old school stars in a 1.5 match. Neither me or you can talk about something that never happened, but they already faced each other in 1.6 and neither SpawN or Heaton could beat gtr, simple. I respect your opinion anyway, SpawN and Heaton are great players and made history at CPL in the past. At1.6, only team NoA was a decent opponent for SK. Right now, fnatic has many hard matches out there, and gtr is always at his A level and he's been very consistent no matter what he does, fragging, clutching, using awp, holding a bombsite, or throwing some flashes.

like cArn said: "f0rest and GeT_RiGhT, they can just make the day really bad for the Ukranian Guys." I think that especially GTR in this moment, he makes great results in any competition he enters. Even with the team getting bad results.

He is a little overweight, but i'd rather be fat, than skinny whimp like most of the cs scene(just take team fnatic for example). I hate racist and stereotype comments, makes this site look immature and ignorant. Administrators should finally ban those IP addresses. By the way! Grats mTw you deserve to be on top... My favorite team of all time... hope you get many more #1 spots and I really hope minet improves a little more. Trace and zonic was just unstoppable ... If I had to say MVP I'd say zonic/trace 50-50
2010-06-22 20:16
tbh I've never seen someone being that constant in a whole tn, zonic was just amazing on every fakin game he played now please, give us the Sunde we used to see back in 2008 and mortal team work would be able to crush anyone, anytime ave still a great Igl and Minet and Trace seem to be the fresh blood they needed damn i must admit im a mTw's fanboy from now on
2010-06-22 03:02
kinda perfect event for mtw. Most of the players played at an incredible lvl with almost no falls
