s1mple adds Major MVP to collection

Aleksandr “⁠s1mple⁠” Kostyliev added another first to his growing list of achievements by powering Natus Vincere to an undefeated Major run in Stockholm, taking home the MVP medal presented by HLTV x Bitskins in the process. It was also his first ever Major MVP.

This is the 24-year-old’s 17th MVP medal of his career, taking his total to only two shy of Nicolai “⁠device⁠” Reedtz‘s leaderboard-topping 19, and his tally for 2021 to six.

The missing medal in s1mple’s cabinet: Major MVP

s1mple did as s1mple does and topped the charts in a plethora of categories across the event, leading in rating (1.47), KD-diff (+106) and kills per round (0.95).

He put in some breath-taking carry performances as Natus Vincere tore through their competitors, a 2.26 rated, 27 kill 8 death crushing of Gambit in the semi-finals and a 40-bomb in the final map of the event being the highlights.

The Ukrainian superstar simply outclassed his nearest rivals for the MVP title, with teammates Valeriy “⁠B1T⁠” Vakhovskiy and Denis “⁠electronic⁠” Sharipov playing second fiddle to their AWPer, and defeated finalist Nikola “⁠NiKo⁠” Kovač dropping off in the game that mattered most.

B1T deserves special mention for the fact this was his first ever Major, and second ever big LAN event.
