With rumors floating around that he might be joining FaZe Clan, Oleksandr “s1mple” Kostyliev took a fans Twitch donation as an opportunity to put those rumors to rest.
S1mple is widely considered one of the best CS:GO players in the world and almost joined FaZe in 2016 before singing up with his current team NaVi.
Recently, rumors have been floating around that s1mple could be headed to FaZe in 2019, but on stream the pro denied he was headed anywhere.
During a recent stream, a viewer sent a donation message that read “Good luck in FaZe Clan. It’s a new level for you by playing with Niko and rain.”
After a confused look, s1imple replied “Man, I’m not joining FaZe Clan, so there is no need to wish me good luck. Good luck in 2019, that’s what you need to wish.”
Despite the rumors, it seems s1mple is not headed to FaZe, bad news for some FaZe Clan fans, but something that should make Na’Vi fans plenty happy.
Next year should be a big one for CS:GO given the bevy of recent roster moves that are in the pipeline, and with s1mple staying on Na’Vi, the Ukranian team will look to have one of its biggest years yet.
