BLAST Fall Final 2023: Top 5 Players

Here are the top 5 players who shone brightly at the BLAST Fall Final 2023 with their exceptional performances


BLAST Fall Final 2023 witnessed Team Vitality's resurgence from a shaky start in the CS2 era to secure their first-ever title in the new format. Vitality talisman Mathieu “ZywOo” Herbaut bagged the BLAST Fall Final 2023 MVP award, but who else impressed in Copenhagen? Here are the top 5 players who captivated the CS2 community in the penultimate CS2 event of the year.

Top 5 Players at the BLAST Fall Final 2023

We'll kick off our BLAST Fall Final 2023 best players list with the competition's MVP, ZywOo, and subsequently unveil the remaining members of the top five performers.

1. Mathieu “ZywOo” Herbaut (Team Vitality)

Even though Vitality crashed out early from IEM Sydney, the first-ever CS2 LAN event, we predicted them to be a serious contender in the Danish capital. Their success, however, hinged on the resurgence of their star AWPer, ZywOo – and he delivered. The Frenchman signed off with an impressive 1.35 overall rating and a staggering 1.50 Impact. He maintained a rating above 1.00 in all of the maps he played, with seven out of ten performances registering at 1.29 or higher. ZywOo's exceptional performances earned him his fourth MVP award of the year.

The tournament's second-best player was Cloud9's sharpshooter, Denis “electroNic” Sharipov. Clocking in at 6.9 across 11 matches is quite an achievement, considering his team could not make it past the last four. The ex-Natus Vincere player rocked the competition as the ultimate opening fragger, scoring an incredible average rating of 0.163. It seems that electroNic is enjoying his game after giving up IGL responsibilities, yet despite his resurgence, Cloud9 fell short of going all the way in the competition.

3. Jonathan “EliGE” Jablonowski (Complexity)

Jonathan “EliGE” Jablonowski played a pivotal role in maintaining Complexity's momentum following the CS2 transition. Although Complexity's journey halted in the semifinals, their star rifler concluded the tournament as the joint-best entry fragger alongside electroNic. The 26-year-old dominated his adversaries with an impressive 58.0% probability, securing the second-highest rate at the competition. He also racked up a substantial number of multifrags, including 4 quad kills per round, 13 triple kills per round, and 39 double kills per round.

4. Lotan “Spinx” Giladi (Team Vitality)

While ZywOo understandably seized much of the spotlight, Lotan “Spinx” Giladi was also instrumental in Vitality's groundbreaking first CS2 title triumph. Averaging an impressive 6.8 across ten maps, Vitality’s unsung hero showcased exceptional mastery of the AK-47, emerging as the standout user of this weapon in the BLAST Fall Final 2023 with an impressive average rating of 0.416. He secured numerous multikills, including 29 double kills per round, which significantly aided his team's journey toward winning the championship.

The last addition to the BLAST Fall Final 2023 top 5 players list comes as no surprise—it's yet another player from Team Vitality! Similar to his teammate Spinx, Shahar “flameZ” Shushan also maintained an average of 6.8 across ten maps. While he didn't single-handedly determine any game in the competition, he proved to be a reliable and consistent performer throughout. Although he didn't rank at the top in any specific metrics, he made significant contributions to his team’s title charge in Copenhagen with his overall performance.
