Counter-Strike: Global Offensive superstar Oleksandr ‘s1mple’ Kostyliev revealed a shocking fact in an interview with Natus Vincere. 

S1mple is widely regarded as one of the best CS:GO players in the world, having consistently competed against the best teams and preforming incredibly well.

He currently represents Natus Vincere, a team that has seen some ups and downs lately as they struggle for form amid some of their biggest roster changes yet.

ESLS1mple is widely considered to be the best CS:GO player in the world.

The Ukranian was interviewed by his team on October 29, where he answered numerous questions about the organization, including opinions about the new players, thoughts on Danylo ‘Zeus’ Teslenko’s retirement, and more.

He spoke about the team’s preparation, stating that “right now we are more productive because we didn’t know when Zeus would retire.” Zeus’ retirement was complicated for the team as “one day he wanted to quit, then the next he wanted to keep playing.”

S1mple then added something rather unexpected, saying “I think the last 3-4 months went wrong in terms of preparation” because players thought of the situation as “the last crusade” and “no one cared” about the team as they could see things massively changing when Zeus finally decided to retire.

This showed in their results, as in the few months before Danylo’s retirement, the team only played in a handful of events, placing poorly in most of them, such as a second last place at Blast Pro Series Miami and a 10th place finish at the ESL Pro League Season 9 finals.

StarLadderS1mple plays a key role for Na`Vi’s CSGO team.

The Na`Vi’s star then commented on his new teammates Kirill ‘Boombl4’ Mikhailov and Ladislav ‘GuardiaN’ Kovács, saying that both are still settling in but are proving very promising, highlighting Boombl4 as a reliable In-Game Leader.

He also said that Guardian is working on being more aggressive and that he will AWP alongside him on the Counter-Terrorist side, in an attempt to improve their defense.

Finally, he finished with a cheeky jab at his newest teammate, telling him that he needs to work on his Russian a bit, probably because he has been playing with international teams for so long.

S1mple and Natus Vincere will next be in action in November at BLAST Pro Series Copenhagen 2019, where fans will be able to see how well he has adjusted to his role, and how much the team has improved.


How to view your CSGO stats in-game with new tracking feature

The Operation Broken Fang update for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive has introduced a new way for players to track their stats in-game. Here’s how you can use it to improve your play.

Trying to find your in-game stats for CS:GO has been difficult in the past, to say the least. Players have had to rely on third-party sites, which can be either unsecure or inaccurate, or both at the same time.

However, Valve has finally listened to the community’s pleas. They have shipped a new, in-game stat tracking feature, that players can start using from Day 1 of the new Operation Broken Fang update.

While it doesn’t retroactively track players’ stats, it’s a new starting point for CS:GO.

What stats does the CS:GO in-game tracker follow?

The new CS:GO in-game stat tracker will track almost everything a player could want. It’ll count your matches played, your ADR, KD ratios, and more. Not only that, but it’ll break it down by map and gun too.

That’s not the only thing the in-game stat tracker can do. It also has a heat map for where you commonly find kills, deaths, and where you hold angles. It also breaks down where you hit players, so you can figure out what you need to do to fix your aim.

It is the one stop shop for all you need to know about your CS:GO game, and where you need to improve. Getting picked off at one position all the time? You can see it on the heatmap and change things up. Not sure if you’re better with the P2000 or the USP? You can find that out.

The CS:GO in-game stat tracker is a handy new tool.

How to view your CS:GO stats in-game

It’s super easy to check your CS:GO stats in-game. You can basically do it from the main menu. Here’s where you can find it.

  1. Open up CS:GO and go to your dashboard (main menu).
  2. Click on Operation Stats near the bottom of the dashboard.
  3. Select the parameters you want to track.
    1. All 5v5, All Wingman, etc.
    2. Past 14 days, Past 30 days, Past 90 days, All time
  4. Analyze your stats.

The stats are currently limited to Operation Broken Fang, but it’s likely the feature will stick around after the event wraps up.

It’s a huge upgrade for CS:GO players who are looking to improve their game. Now, you can definitively know if your teammates are holding you back or not.
