Professional CS:GO star Oleksandr ‘s1mple’ Kostyliev showed why patience and not being too trigger-happy is vital, wit in an incredible pistol round clutch to kick off an FPL game.

S1mple has been widely regarded as one of the best CS:GO players in the world over the last year, consistently putting up high kills and majorly contributing to Na’Vi’s performances at tournaments.

The Ukrainian star is no different in pick-up games, however, as s1mple always seems to put on a show when streaming some of his FPL matches on Twitch.

DreamhackS1mple has often been regarded as the best CS:GO player in the world over recent years.

After realizing that the enemy team were going to make a play towards the B bombsite on the fan favorite map, Dust 2, s1mple held his nerve while hiding behind a box at the back of the site.

The Na’Vi pro waited for his chance to strike, despite watching his teammates dropping around him and leaving him in the 1v4 situation.

Fortunately for him, his spot was left unchecked and s1mple quickly dispatched of all three opponents near him with quick headshots while the bomb was being planted, turning it into a 1v1, which he handled with ease.

This is not the first time that s1mple shocked fans with an incredible play, as he seems to make a habit out of clutching 1v4 situations with only a pistol to work with.

S1mple and the rest of the Na’Vi CS:GO roster will be looking to showcase some incredible plays, such as this one, at the StarLadder Berlin Major 2019 which takes place on August 23.

The Russian/Ukrainian squad will have just over two weeks from now to prepare for the million dollar tournament where they will be looking to secure Natus Vincere their first ever Major trophy.

Real Madrid and Brazil football star Casemiro has announced the launch of his own esports team, CaseEsports.

The defensive midfielder’s team will initially compete in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, debuting in the qualifier for DreamHack Masters Winter on November 3.

The decision to start a team, according to the org’s official website, was birthed from Casemiro’s “enthusiasm, desire to enjoy and passion for this game” – speaking specifically of Counter-Strike.

The organisation will provide a team of sports professionals to enhance the performance of their players. They plan to “lead the European esports scene” through “effort, perseverance and teamwork.”

CaseEsports will be hoping for land1n to make an instant impact.

The all-Brazilian roster that has been assembled includes former paiN Gaming and Tempo Storm players Denis “⁠dzt⁠” Fischer and Paulo “⁠land1n⁠” Felipe, former FURIA Academy duo Yan “⁠yepz⁠” Pedretti and Vinicius “⁠n1ssim⁠” Pereira, and former Imperial player Felipe “⁠delboNi⁠” Delboni.

CaseEsports has already secured the support of multiple sponsors, including peripherals brand HyperX, glasses retailer Hawkers, gaming chair brand Drift, and “fashion soccer” line BŮH.

“This team was created out of a hobby of mine that I really enjoy,” said Casemiro, according to HLTV. “I wanted to take it to a professional level, and just like in my career, I want them to be the best. I know that creating a new team and winning titles will take time and require a lot of work, but I hope that the players and the fans will really enjoy this project.”

Athletes starting their own esports teams is not a new trend by any means.

In the last few months alone, David Beckham launched Guild Esports, Manchester City star Sergio Aguero founded KRU Esports, and Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster started Team Diverge.
