s1mple leaves A-Gaming

A-Gaming have announced that Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev has left the team.

The Ukrainian side rose eyebrows last month when they came out on top of SLTV ProSeries X, this way securing a spot in the next StarSeries season.

It seems now that A-Gaming have fallen victim to their own success as Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev has decided to join a new team.

"We all know that everything that has a beginning has an end, and our team is no exception," an A-Gaming statement read.

"Our path and that of Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev, who has been with us since the team's inception, will diverge.We wish him success in his next team.

"As for our team, we will continue to do everything in our power. Soon you will know who our new fifth player is."

The news will strengthen rumours that the young Ukrainian player, who is representing his country in ESEC, could be joining HellRaisers to replace Dauren "AdreN" Kystaubayev.

HLTV.org knows that HellRaisers are considering using s1mple as a stand-in in their upcoming FACEIT League matches.

A-Gaming now have:

Ukraine Vladyslav "arch" Svistov
Ukraine Artur "Pancher" Mishin
Belarus Roman "CyberFocus" Dergach
Belarus Vladimir "ROBO" Neskey

ceh9 confirmed s1mple to HR as AWP! youtube.com/watch?v=-Sr6qB9Pnuc#t=100 RUS
2014-09-09 00:02
i didn't understand anything :(
2014-09-09 03:54
Ceh9 said that s1mple is joining HR as a sniper, but as for him forcing the best Ukrainian rifler to play with awp while having the best sniper of 1.6 in their team is very debatable decision.
2014-09-09 08:10
markeloff doesn't use the AWP that much though so there probably won't be any problems. It would have been nice if markeloff would AWP more often though, because imo he's really good when I've seen him use it.
2014-09-09 09:01
The problem isn't about markeloff who is doing ok with rifles, it's about s1mple. Imo it makes a little sense to pick a sick aimer to use him as an awp. If they needed an awper there are plenty of them in CIS, f.e Fox, WorldEdit, etc.

Just look at Kucher's latest stats hltv.org/?pageid=173&playerid=302&eventi.. he's playing like dogshit and he always flops in majors getting like 1 kill and 10 deaths in the most important matches.

yeah, We, with his 0,5 rating in Cologne, better then s1mple ) s1mple > CyberFocus > DavCost > WE
2014-09-09 11:30
and still better than simple in # at lan.
2014-09-09 12:01
flamie > WorldElite (awping) > s1mple
2014-09-09 15:32
I hope that HR will bring a young player with lots of potential (like NaVi did with seized or Cloud9 with shroud). It's clear now, that bringing an oldschool player from 1.6 doesn't work for them.

2014-09-09 14:23
he has, sure but i think they will remove it to give a chance for rising star. its my own opinion
2014-09-09 17:48
They won't, when ban expires, he will be able to play in ESL.

lol i can't see this making any difference to HR's performance. if s1mple is joining HR as their awper his handicapping himself while they have arguably one of the best 1.6 snipers in their team and don't utilize him.
2014-09-10 00:18
I remember markeloff trying to awp at the begining of csgo, he was not near hes level on 1.6, then he decided to use rifles, and hes good with them. Plus I don't know any 1.6 awp'er who is good on CSGO ? CSGO is dominated by Source awp'ers. Guardian, KennyS and others who I jus't can't remember.
