As the UnitedBase Spring Cup 2023 demonstrated, these rankings reflect the players’ ability to consistently deliver kills, elevate their teams, and make a lasting impact on the game.
And now it is time to reveal the Most Valuable Player (MVP) and the All-Star team. As I mentioned earlier, there are some surprises in store. The players for the All-Star team are usually chosen by the Admin Team, and this time it was an extremely challenging task due to the numerous outstanding performances we witnessed, each with their own unique style of play. Ultimately, it came down to personal preferences and considering various aspects of the game.
The Atheist MVP Award goes to: Don – Dreamteam
If you have read the entire article and seen the statistics, it should come as no surprise that Don was chosen as the MVP. He surpassed the entire community in almost every statistical category. During the playoffs, he elevated his already exceptional gameplay and achieved numbers that have rarely been seen in the past three years.
Don – the
simpele MVP (KPR: 0.95 #1, KDR: 1.50 #1)
TjEEEBi – a consistent All-Star player, the former MVP demonstrated exceptional skills as the best FRS player and had an incredible run in the playoffs (KPR: 0.85 #9 KDR: 1.37 #2)
r3ziner – Another Finnish powerhouse who had his best UO cup ever, often carrying TMO with his lurking playstyle (KPR: 0.91 #2 KDR: 1.32 #4)
Gerlo – a trademark name in this game, renowned for his tactical and sniper plays, provides a long needed stability to the Duchies and played a crucial role in their victory (KPR: 0.86 #7 KDR: 1.17 #12)
Archimedes – I Introduced him during the Grand Finals stream as the reliable backbone, Archi consistently performed despite playing in challenging roles in various maps and delivered outstanding results (KPR: 0.79 #13 KDR: 1.21 #8)
You might be wondering why it was difficult to assemble the All-Star team. For the first time ever, we have three players from the same team in the All-Stars. Combined with the exclusion of notable players such as L1mewax, KarmA, Xrated, dietchi, or King, it led to intense discussions and statistical analysis, including reviewing video footage. Ultimately, the decision was based on the dominance of Dreamteam and the significant contributions these three players made to their team in their own unique ways.
Unfortunately, the five players I mentioned who were left out will have the opportunity to prove their worth during the next cup. Or perhaps even before that? Wait what?
The Admin Team has announced the first-ever All-Star match as a warm-up event during the registration period for the next majors. This will allow the All-Star team to compete in a live-streamed Best-of-Three (Bo3) match against the Challengers.
