IEM Beijing-Haidian wrapped up Sunday with Astralis lifting its first trophy toward Intel Grand Slam Season 3. The Danes did it in dominant fashion with a perfect map record and even pulled off a 16-0 win against FaZe Clan in the semifinals.
Did Astralis dominate the player rating ranking as well? Here are the top five rated players from IEM Beijing-Haidian, according to HLTV’s 2.0 rating system.
5. Mathieu “ZywOo” Herbaut - Team Vitality - 1.29 (8 Maps)
The French star showed up once again as Vitality finished with the second highest team overall rating. Vitality cruised through groups going 2-0, but fell to 100 Thieves in the semifinals. ZywOo continues to be an integral part of the team’s system and he’ll be key if Vitality wants to lock up some more trophies before the year ends.
4. Emil “Magisk” Reif - Astralis - 1.31 (9 Maps)
Imagine living in a world where Astralis never signed Magisk. The ignition behind Astralis’ dynasty also kicks off their domination of the top five for Beijing-Haidian. He’s an all-purpose tool that can be played in multiple spots on multiple maps.
3. Andreas “Xyp9x” Hojsleth - Astralis - 1.31 (9 Maps)
The Clutch Minister showed out in China with a 1.31 rating. He was only bested in the tournament by two of his teammates, but his impact is still felt throughout a game. No matter the 1vX scenario, Xyp9x is there to bring home much needed rounds.
2. Nicolai “dev1ce” Reedtz - Astralis - 1.43 (9 Maps)
Highlighted before the tournament as a player to watch at the event, dev1ce put on a show with the AWP. Posting a 1.43 rating is sometimes good enough to win an MVP award for a tournament, but in fact he was outdone by his in-game leader.
1. Lukas “gla1ve” Rossander - Astralis - 1.48 (9 Maps)
Instead of Magisk, imagine a world where Gla1ve never joins Astralis. The in-game leader dominated the competition with a 1.48 rating and took home HLTV MVP honors for the tournament. Him and coach Danny “zonic” Sorensen are a mastermind duo no team wants to face.
