We were so, so ready to talk about how s1mple was the best player in the world, inarguably.
After two maps, NaVi were 2-0 up and s1mple had over 60 kills. He was extraordinary in those first two, and it looked like that Vitality Grand Final curse was coming back to bite them again.
We had it all written out. s1mple is the GOAT, Zywho, finally s1mple has a team around him, all that stuff.
But man, ZywOo. Jesus Christ.
The thing is, statistically, s1mple still slaughtered Vitality. The poor guy dropped 118 over the five maps and it still wasn't enough. If anyone is cursed, it's that guy.
Vitality came out of nowhere to reverse sweep the finals 3-2, but we're no closer to completely deciding who is the bestest player ever ever ever. s1mple put up the numbers, but ZywOo had the magic moments, and importantly, the virtual trophy to show for it.
Sort of lost in all this is how insanely good Nivera is. Every time he plays, he looks like he's not far off the level of ZywOo. Really makes you wonder why he doesn't play every game. At least he gets more game time than Bubzkji, who is basically a modern day Winston Bogarde.
And if you don't get that reference, we can't blame you. It's a bit of an odd one.
