Oleksandr Olehovych Kostyliev, known as “s1mple,” is a 24-year-old Ukrainian CS:GO player who has been playing under Natus Vincere jersey for over five years. Previously, he was playing for Team Liquid.

Natus Vincere and s1mple have been playing in the top-level since the start of 2021, and they have been dominating the scene for over months. At PGL Major Stockholm 2021, they were everybody’s favorites.

In the finals, they faced G2 Esports but managed to get past their enemy without losing a single map. While they win the tournament with such domination, s1mple got his first major trophy as well as MVP award.

Following the victory, s1mple spoke in an interview with hltv’s Milan “Striker” Švejda, and talked about his motivation to win the event and how they performed throughout the tournament as well.

While s1mple was saying that they had a perfect tournament from start to the finish, he also pointed out that he imaged losing in the event and it felt so incredible terrible for the world-class player.

Therefore, s1mple wanted to win more to not feel devastated for losing the trophy, which was the key motivation for him. Also, s1mple mentioned that they mostly faced themselves because of lack of experience for most players in the NaVi roster.

s1mple talked about the tournament:

“I just tried to imagine how we’re losing, and it was so terrible that I wanted to win more. When you just remind yourself that you can easily lose and just try to create this emotions like ‘other teams winning, and you just third major, and you’re losing you know,’ it’s very hard.

We understand that our game better but as I said like against Vitality and G2, we played against ourselves because it’s like the first major final for three players, and for some players it’s the third game on stage and that was hard.”
