Counter-Strike: Global Offensive star Oleksandr ‘s1mple’ Kostyliev celebrated a massive Twitch donation with four incredible Desert Eagle kills.

Many would consider s1mple to be the greatest CSGO player of all time, so it’s no surprise that when he chooses to stream his gameplay thousands of fans tune in.

One viewer decided to send the Ukrainian a huge $500 donation, which briefly shocked him, before kicking him into gear. S1mple pulled out all the stops and rewarded the donator with an incredible play, where took town four opponents with his impeccable aim with the Deagle.

Many consider s1mple to be the best CSGO player of all time.

This took place during a fairly standard broadcast on March 4, where the pro was battling against other pros and upcoming players in the FaceIT Pro League – an advanced matchmaking platform for the best players in the world.

“500 Dollars? Crazy, crazy… thank you. I need to do a highlight after $500.” Said the Na`Vi star and immediately kicked off the slaughter. Some perfect crosshair placement saw him get a quick headshot in Inferno’s T-Apps before a patient play rewarded him with an impressive long-range one tap.

S1mple then ran back into boiler and asked a teammate for a boost over the mid smoke, which resulted in yet another clean headshot. This one may have been even more impressive than the last, as he managed to perfectly scope out his opponent right on the edge of the smoke that was obscuring his vision.

However, the fourth and final kill was definitely the highlight as Oleksandr danced on his teammate’s shoulders and quickly re-peaked into mid, instantly flicking onto the Terrorist popping out of the tunnel and hitting a head that could barely be seen on screen.

Even the CS:GO legend himself was impressed with the play and couldn’t help but let out a cheeky smile and slight cheer.

No doubt the donator was happy as well, having seen such an amazing play right after his donation – perhaps he’d even given s1mple some extra motivation.

Valve has lifted the VAC ban on CSGO legend KRIMZ, and although fans think it was probably due to a matchmaking tool, the reasons are still unknown.

The CSGO community stood still on November 28 after Freddy ‘KRIMZ’ Johansson announced he had been VAC banned. Valve never specified why, which made the situation a bit of a mystery.

“It seems that my account got vac banned,” he said. “CSGO can you fix this asap pls.” It sounded like he was probably more confused than anyone else and was adamant he’d done nothing wrong.

CSGO fans think he might have been banned for using a third-party tool named esportal to find matches. However, there has been no official word to support it.

FNATIC coach Andreas “Samuelsson” Samuelsson issued a statement not long after. “We have reached out to Valve, TOs, and third-party community websites… to understand the nature of this unexpected shutdown,” he said. “We have no reason to believe this is the consequence of any intentional use of any illegal program.”

Either way, it didn’t take Valve long to rectify the issue. They’ve already lifted the ban, and it’s been a huge relief to CSGO players and FNATIC fans around the world.

The first one to spill the beans was ‘DonHaci.’ “Krimz has been unbanned,” he said. “His VAC ban has been removed from his Steam page.

KRIMZ’s Steam profile isn’t private, which means anyone can take a look and see for themselves. His fans have been pouring in and leaving comments to celebrate and share their relief.

Still, nobody is more excited than the man himself. KRIMZ made a brief statement on Twitter and expressed his gratitude for having it fixed. “I’m free [motherf**ers], he said. “Thank you CSGO for sorting it out quickly.”

Interestingly, Valve still hasn’t explained why they banned KRIMMZ in the first place. KRIMMZ hasn’t elaborated on it either.

In the end, though, the key takeaway is that it appears to have been a mistake. The CSGO community is thrilled to have its favorite son back.
