He’s considered as one of the greatest players to ever touch CS:GO, and although he has never won a major, few can dispute his raw talent, impeccable skills, and incredible consistency. Let’s take a closer look at the stats and see exactly what makes Oleksandr ‘s1mple’ Kostyliev the GOAT. 

There is an argument to be made for a handful of players when it comes to determining who is the greatest Counter-Strike player of all time. S1mple has definitely earned a right to be discussed in this argument with a staggering 1.24 HLTV rating over his lengthy career.

This rating falls second just behind Vitality’s Mathieu ‘ZywOo’ Herbaut being the only one ahead of him on 1.29. Kostyliev also has the second-highest kills per round ratio at 0.85 behind ZywOos 0.87.

One thing is for sure: people don’t want to go up against S1mple in a clutch 1v1 scenario. The Ukrainian phenomenon has won a crazy 64.5% of his 1v1s, making him one of the scariest players to go up against in high-pressure scenarios.

There is no doubt the skilled entry fragger is the best player to never win a major, but does that mean he could never be seen as the greatest ever? With the 2020 major being delayed till November, could this finally be his clear?
