Counter-Strike: Global Offensive superstar Aleksandr ‘s1mple’ Kostyliev is currently on his way to securing a record-breaking year of performances despite not winning as many titles as he may have deserved.

S1mple secures #1 status

The Ukrainian star was given the honor of being named as the #1 player in the world for the 2018 season despite his Natus Vincere team falling well behind the dominant Astralis.

S1mple’s brilliant form has already transitioned into 2019, helping carry NaVi to a third-place finish at IEM Katowice and a win at StarSeries i-League Season 7. Yet, the most impressive thing about his current run might just be his ability to sustain the individual brilliance.

S1mple continues to break his own records

With a ton of time still left to go in the 2019 season, s1mple is riding high on a 29 map streak of a 1+ rating from HLTV. HLTV’s 1.0 rating combines a number of different stats to formulate a score for a player’s performance, with 1.0 being the average that a player can fall below or jump above.

The stats become even more mind-bogglingly awesome when you realize that s1mple has been able to extend the run-on-year. In 2016, he went 16 maps with a +1 before jumping up to 24 consecutive maps in 2017. He beat his own record in 2018, marching to 28 maps with a positive rating.

As impressive as they are, however, he still some way to go to achieving the eclipsing the overall record of 53 set by legendary Ninjas in Pyjamas pro Patrik ‘f0rest’ Lindberg.

Can s1mple dethrone Astralis?

Despite all the stunning personal stats and highlight plays, s1mple won't be able to lift NaVi to titles and success all by himself - even if that might seem like the team’s gameplan every now and again.  

The superstar has already revealed how the organization is shaking things up by adding even more structure to the team with the introduction of a dietologist and psychologist. 

However, they will probably need a bit more than that to be consistently challenging Astralis at the very top of the CS:GO food chain.
