YEKINDAR swaps s1mple in BLAST player rankings
Virtus.pro player Mareks "YEKINDAR" Galinskis topped the updated BLAST Score, which reflects the current form of eSports athletes based on individual statistics. The Latvian has overtaken NAVI sniper Alexander "s1mple" Kostylev, who has held the lead for the past four weeks and claimed first place.
The most progress since March 27 was displayed by Liquid's Jonathan "EliGE" Jablonowski, who moved up from tenth to sixth place. Besides Galinskis and Kostylev, he's still behind Nikolai "mir" Bityukov (Team Spirit), Mathieu "ZywOo" Herabaut (Vitality) and Abdul "degster" Hasanov (Team Spirit).
Recall that the ranking of the best players from BLAST is based on performances over the past three months against opponents from the top 30 world rankings and is updated weekly. Only stats from BLAST Premier Circuit championships: BLAST, ESL, IEM, Flashpoint and majors are taken in account.
