Professional CS:GO player Oleksandr ‘s1mple’ Kostyliev put on an incredible performance while filling in for a semi-pro team in an Online Cup, streaming his gameplay on Twitch.

S1mple is known for being one of the best CS:GO players in the world in recent years, so his competitors in the LOOT.BET Cup, “forZe”, were likely to be shocked when seeing him filling in for one of the players on the opposing team, “cats.”

The Ukrainian currently competes for Natus Vincere professionally, where he plays against the best teams in the world, so this step down in competition was no problem at all for him as he put on a show, streaming the whole match from his point of view for his Twitch viewers.

DexertoS1mple is one of the core members of Natus Vincere’s professional CS:GO roster.

During the first map of the series, s1mple began to perform at his expected high standards almost instantly, making CS:GO look easy by starting the first half of the game with twenty kills.

Despite s1mple’s best efforts to rack up as many kills as he could, the first map managed to go all the way to double overtime. He displayed his skill with four incredible AWP kills in the deciding round to put them up in the series, shortly after exclaiming that there will be no more overtime played: “There’s no other OT, There’s no other overtime!”

The CS:GO pro was forced to pull out all the stops during the online cup series to get the win for his squad, which saw him finishing with a combined 77 kills to 33 deaths record after the two maps had been played.

The full gameplay of s1mple’s dominance while subbing in for the semi-pro team during the LOOT.BET Cup is still available for viewers to enjoy.

First map of the series starts at 16:00

Many fans enjoyed the fact that they could view s1mple’s reactions and communication in a more competitive environment in the online cup compared to his usual FPL CS:GO pick up game streams on Twitch.

Although s1mple had to put in some effort to carry the semi-pro players to victory, he admitted shortly after the game had ended that he wouldn’t mind doing it again if the opportunity presented itself, which could be good news for fans of his competitive streams.

How s1mple ended up on the semi-pro team is currently unknown, but we’re sure after this performance, their rivals will hope it was a one-time thing.

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.
