When the partnership between Mercedes-Benz and the ESL started, the Stuttgart brand established the Mercedes-Benz Most Valuable Player (MVP), a format in which the fans and a jury of experts determine the best player in the tournament via an online poll. At ESL One Hamburg the prize will again be handed over to the MVP by a cosplayer. The MVP can look forward to a new Mercedes‑Benz worth 50,000 euros.
“Two years ago, the Mercedes-Benz MVP was created to offer another added value to fans and players,” says ESL CEO Ralf Reichert, as the tournament approaches. “The MVP vote has become a firm part of our ESL One tournaments and is a competition highlight for the Dota 2 community. We are proud that we have established this authentic format together with Mercedes-Benz.”
