Counter-Strike: Global Offensive star Oleksandr ‘s1mple’ Kostyliev showed his Twitch stream exactly why he’s the most dangerous player in the game with an unbelievable AWP ace with every kill more impressive than the last.
S1mple has been at the top of the CS:GO talent pool for years because of his immaculate precision and steamrolling hyper-aggressive play-style which makes any pro team think twice before hitting his site.
During his May 13 stream, s1mple made the attacking Terrorist team quickly regret a straightforward B-site hit on Mirage after an electrifying ace shutdown what could’ve been a good chance of planting the bomb.
Throughout s1mple’s career he’s had tons of highlights both on and off LAN.
With an AWP in hand and the only teammate in the site already dead, s1mple was looking to pop off as the only player holding down the B bombsite.
After getting a quick trade and an even quicker scoped kill against the people on site, s1mple started to push up to the Apartments when he was cut off by someone poking out from the smoke.
But with a sick readjustment, s1mple landed a shot clean on his head, making it four CT’s against two T’s. S1mple pressed on and hopped onto the Truck just as a smoke was dissipating to catch a Terrorist completely by surprise.
To cap off his ace, s1mple scoped down to the corner of the Apartment hallway an barely caught a glimpse of the enemy player before finishing off the round.
Na’Vi fizzle at BLAST Pro Series Madrid
S1mple is typically a beast on stream and on LAN, but his team’s latest outing during the BLAST Pro Series in Madrid didn’t pan out so well for the superstar.
The team started the event with a brutal loss to eventual champions ENCE in a 16-4 effort, but soon followed it up with a convincing win against Cloud9 with a margin of 16-7. But other than a dominating win against sixth place Giants Gaming, the event wasn’t a strong point for the Na’Vi squad.
Organizers have revealed the new schedule for Flashpoint Season 2, which will see teams competing for the largest CSGO prize pool of 2020 at $1 million.
The competition has been held completely online since March, due to the ongoing concern surrounding the global health situation, and that will continue for Season 2 as well.
This tournament venture between B Site Inc. and FACEIT kicks off its second season on November 10, 2020, with participating teams and the schedule released in the days leading up to the start.
So, let’s take a look at which teams are playing when, and how you can catch all the action.
Opening matches for Flashpoint Season 2.
The matches will all be streamed on FLASHPOINT’s Twitch channel, and with no in-person attendance and all games being held completely remotely, this will be the only way to watch the matches.
Duncan ‘Thorin’ Shields, who is participating in the leadership of FLASHPOINT’s creative direction, has predicted Group C will definitely be the one to watch, with OG (who are favored by many to win it all) and potential dark horses Cloud9 battling it out, along with Virtus.Pro in the mix as well, who finally seem to be getting in the swing of online play.
In Group B, BIG emerges as a clear favorite, but Thorin added “there will be heavy competition for the second-best team.” Finally, all eyes in Group A will be focused on taking down MAD Lions, who came out on top in first place following Flashpoint Season 1.
