The IEM Cologne 2023 is now history, and we have several players who demonstrated an impressive level of play throughout the tournament and who, without a doubt, were fundamental pillars for the success of their teams.

G2 Esports was crowned champion by defeating ENCE in the IEM Cologne Grand Final by 3-1. While ENCE came into this Grand Final match with plenty of inspiration after defeating Team Vitality, the team was no match for G2’s two superstars, Nikola “NiKo” Kovač and Ilya “m0NESY” Osipov.

ZywOo – Team Vitality

We continue the list with Mathieu “ZywOo” Herbaut, one of the best players in CS:GO history who never tires of carrying Team Vitality in every tournament they participate in. The Frenchman greatly impacted his team’s qualification for the tournament playoffs. However, his run ended in the semifinals when they lost to ENCE 1-2. In every game that ZywOo played in this IEM Cologne 2023, we could observe all his skills and qualities that, without a doubt, place him as one of the best in history.

Dev1ce – Astralis

In this IEM Cologne 2023, we see the Nicolai “dev1ce” Reedtz that we enjoyed in the golden age of Astralis a few years ago. The Danish legend left everything in every match he played in this tournament. Thanks to that, he led Astralis to a surprising semifinals after an excellent victory over Heroic in the quarterfinals.

Dev1ce led a very young squad to take them one step closer to the tournament’s Grand Final. Although they lost to G2 Esports by 0-2, much credit must be given to this Astralis that, without a doubt, seems completely renewed. Below, we will show dev1ce’s stats at the IEM Cologne 2023.
