It's no surprise that this player could claim the title of the best player of 2023. "ZywOo" received the MVP award at the end of the BLAST Premier Fall Final 2023. The esports athlete's average rating during the championship was 1.35.

"ZywOo" played 10 maps at the tournament. His best performance was recorded on Inferno against Complexity (1.99), and the worst – on Nuke against Heroic (1.04).
