Na’Vi CS:GO star Oleksandr ‘s1mple’ Kostyliev left his viewers in awe after a perfect trick outplayed his opponents to clutch a near-impossible 2v4 situation during an FPL match.
Since his rise to the top, joining premier CS:GO organization Natus Vincere in 2017, s1mple has always been in the conversation for Player of the Year awards with his consistent performances at the highest level.
The Ukrainian has also built a loyal viewer base as a streamer on Twitch, gaining over 1.4 million followers for his always-entertaining and competitive FPL pick-up matches.
Towards the end of his April 25 broadcast, s1mple found himself in an incredibly difficult 2v4 situation and despite being on match point with rounds to spare, he was not willing to forfeit the round, reminding fans just why he is among the best in the world.
After finding himself trapped inside of Mirage’s B short ladder room, with his opponents watching the exit, little utility, and the bomb in hand, his chances to close out the map were slim.
However, s1mple took advantage of CS:GO’s physics by shooting a smoke grenade that was on the floor near him, bouncing it off a wall and around a corner, to his teammate who had also run out of meaningful utility grenades.
After realizing what s1mple had done, his teammate instantly threw the smoke on B short, allowing s1mple to pass him the bomb and make his escape.
His teammate managed to get the bomb down with only seconds to spare but instead of joining him on the site to make a stand, the Na’Vi pro took a page out of Stewie2K’s book and lurked in the smoke waiting for his enemies to pass.
This resulted in the surviving pair picking up the rest of the kills with ease and closing out the final match of his broadcast with a flawless 2v4 clutch.
S1mple’s chat exploded after witnessing his quick thinking with many praising him for his “300IQ” tactics in the clutch situation.
As many of the upcoming CS:GO LAN events have been canceled or moved to an online format, it is likely that fans will get to witness even more ridiculous outplays from s1mple in the coming weeks, with him having more time to stream than usual.
