The Natus Vincere star showed that he is fine form ahead of his team’s run the IEM Katowice Major, where they will be hoping to build on their second placed finish at the FACEIT London Major - by winning the whole thing.
While the team’s form has been rocky since that great run in London, s1mple showcased why they can’t be written off as long as he's wearing the yellow and black of Na’Vi - as he destroyed his fellow pros with a few flicks of the AWP.
Playing in a Faceit Pro League game, the #1 ranked player in the world dominated his opponents as they tried to burst onto the A Site of the map Cache - finding three quick kills with ease.
Operating from electric box, s1mple quickly took down one with a quick scope, before eliminating another enemy without scoping at all. A few seconds later, after resetting himself, he found his third kill - again, with a ridiculous quick scope.
However, s1mple wasn’t finished there. With the game coming to a close and his team behind, the CS:GO superstar stepped up.
He delivered a killer blow to MIBR’s Fernando ‘Fer’ Alvarenga using his trusty AWP, finding a wall bang through the garage wall in mid-map. The ridiculous play set his chat off with the calls for ‘VAC’ - referring to Valve’s VAC ban system for in-game cheaters.
It remains to be seen if s1mple can help propel his team to another glittering run at CS:GO’s most prestigious event, but he's clearly ready for any challenge in front of him.
The Na’Vi squad go off to a hot start in Katowice, dominating French hopes G2 by a 16-7scorelinee, giving themselves a perfect 1-0 start in the New Legends stage.
