s1mple: "I'm sorry for my actions"

MIRAA
January 15th, 2015 00:00

Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev has commented his departure from HellRaisers in an interview with HLTV.org.

Recruited in September as a replacement for Dauren "AdreN" Kystaubayev, Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev impressed the fans and proved his critics wrong with a number of impressive displays, both online and on LAN.

Boasting a whopping 1.19 rating, one of the highest in the game, the Ukrainian prodigy was still given his marching orders by the team earlier on Wednesday together with Yegor "markeloff" Markelov as HellRaisers landed dAT Team duo AdreN and Egor "flamie" Vasilyev.


s1mple vows to continue his journey elsewhere 

Contacted by HLTV.org, s1mple explained that one of the reasons for his dismissal was the fact that he could not attend the upcoming Katowice event due to his ESL ban, which expires in 2016. He was banned by ESL in 1.6 a few years ago, with the ban being extended at a later point after he was caught using a new account before the expiry of the original suspension.

The 17-year-old admitted that his recent inflammatory comments about German people on his stream also contributed to his removal from the team.

"I was told about my removal from the team yesterday," he told HLTV.org. "I was pleased to play with such experienced players, they taught me a lot.

"ANGE1 called me and told me he had bad news. I immediately knew what was going to happen.

"I was removed from the team because of my ESL ban and because of a bad reputation. I am sorry for my actions. 

"I was upset that no one, except the manager and the captain said farewell words.

"I would also like to apologise to everyone in the CS:GO community and the profanity of the words said about Germans.

"I love all nationalities, I was just mad at some specific people, and I am sorry about what I said.

"I would like to thank everyone that supported me. I hope I will soon find a team and continue my journey."

2015-01-15 03:36
he is lying :p cuz he needs a new team
2015-01-15 14:27
So obvious he did this on purpose to get kicked from Hellraisers, hes too good in this team. Now Navi will change Starix for him and Starix will go to HR.

2015-01-15 09:01
We all know emotions can get the best of us. Sad for S1mple that his ban is until next year in ESL but he will find a new home soon as any cis team with a brain can spot his potential.
2015-01-15 00:53
cute
2015-01-15 00:53
Feel sorry for the guy, at the end of the day I think skill outweighs behavior. Sometimes you gotta be willing to play with people you don't wanna play with (hint hint ibuypower) If HR didn't try to go for WorldEdit before AdreN they made a huge mistake. Nonetheless, s1mple(secondary AWP) WorldEdit(AWP) bondik B1AD3(maybe become coach and find replacement for him but idk who) markeloff
2015-01-15 00:54
On paper this team looks shit
2015-01-15 01:06
its the best you can make from CIS lineup unless they join navi
2015-01-15 01:26
Yes and that's depressing. I still believe that you can have quite a solid team if you pick some of the young blood in the CIS community. That russian LAN was impressing last week, some solid players.
2015-01-15 01:38
Nope this is by far the best CIS lineup outside of NaVi: Dosia s1mple WorldEdit flamie markeloff
2015-01-15 01:40

what did he say about germany people?
2015-01-15 00:54
hard to believe that all of the sudden he feels regret.
2015-01-15 00:55
It's not all of a sudden, trust me. I've seen him commenting about it in other threads. We all make mistakes and say things that can make many people from one community, or country, mad due to the fact that we were mad at a specific person from the community / country. I'll give him a second chance, everyone needs a second chance. He isn't that old after all.
2015-01-15 00:59
he told 100500 times that he said to only 5 germans who was in game, not whole country. but trolls and haters start force some videos/pictures and everyone think that simple is racist. ofc it didnt make him good guy, but come on, no one is ideal, everybody make mistakes.

Then why did he say "Germans" instead? And "sieg heil"?
2015-01-15 01:48
I say terrible things sometimes, particularly online. Racism, stereotyping etc. I'm not actually a bad person. Quite the opposite. Sometimes you just lose a sense of when it is appropriate/acceptable to joke or rage about certain things. Sometimes if someone pisses you off you just want to piss them off back. And sometimes you can upset some other people by doing it. In other news HOLY FUCKING HELL IT IS WINDY.

A lot of the people damning him about his actions are hypocrites. Everybody has blurted something out in the heat of the moment on CS at some point in time that could be deemed offensive.
2015-01-15 00:56
Except the moment he "blurted something out" cannot exactly be called a "heat of the moment" as it was not ingame. So, no, I still damn him.
2015-01-15 02:05
I don't know the context, but I'd wager it was just after he lost a game to some germans cheating in MM or something.
2015-01-15 02:07
Maybe. But even if he lost to some german cunt cheating on mm it still doesn't make up for his reaction.
2015-01-15 02:11
Of course it doesn't. But as I said, everybody has done something similar at some time or another on the game when angry.
2015-01-15 02:13
Of course everybody has done that, but generally everybody isn't a professional player, saying something like that on a livestream with a significant number of viewers. That's where the difference lies. It's very similar to other "celebrities". Remember that leaked pictures stuff a few months back? Everybody was laying into the celebs for making these sorts of pictures in the first place, because they're setting a "bad example". The fact that just about 90% of all teenage girls nowadays take those kinds of pictures and also regularly have them stolen and published, completely didn't matter.
2015-01-15 10:54
They were playing some cash tour against germans and they were waiting like half an hour for them while they were disrespecting towards them, so he lost it and quit the server and said that.
2015-01-15 02:48
well they are not gonna find replacement for this guy anytime soon :)

and ? it sounds like reasonable explanation
2015-01-15 05:28
Lol..how could someone get offended by him? :D He's one of the best players out there. I hope he'll find a better team than HR since he was by far the best player in HR stats wise.

2015-01-15 01:05
100% agree
2015-01-15 01:09
Let's be real here, we all have made fun of a nationality online before. It doesn't mean we hate them. However to do it on stream? You have to be a bit stupid.
2015-01-15 01:05
too bad it doesnt matter how good you are when you have 0 manners
2015-01-15 01:08
but they didn't kick him for insulting germans lol
2015-01-15 03:37
they would NEVER mention that in a statement.
2015-01-15 12:12
Honestly he is young and definitely is still a bit immature :D, would accept such apologies instead of a fucking cheater :)
2015-01-15 01:09

To scam your viewers on multiple occasions for skins is a scumbag move, if you're +16 and doing that it's part of having a shitty personality imo. But whatever the case, s1mple way too good to not comeback in a good team.

2015-01-15 01:11
that's a good statement to release. He's only 17. Will continue supporting him. Don't know what he did to get that ESL ban (it seems too long a punishment and not legal) but it's a lesson for aspiring players. All the best to s1mple.
2015-01-15 01:14
Does this mean that he will no longer be begging for skins?
2015-01-15 01:15

2015-01-15 01:16
Just seems to me that he doesn't give a shit about being kicked.

2015-01-15 01:22
it was stupid to rant on a live stream, most people say some stupid shit while in rage (especially when you are young) and personally i don't fee very offended by it... the ESL Ban where (hopefully) the ghosts of the past.

since you are not VAC baned and LAN proven, i support you! if you find a team soon and keep this form you playing with, you'll break top20 2015 for sure! good luck

controversial statement.. let us see though.

Did anyone really care about his bad mouth? Or was the ESL ban the more important reason?

2015-01-15 01:35
He is still young , everyone makes mistakes while young (and if you diden´t that is your mistake). Just grow and get experience and keep those frags coming :)
2015-01-15 01:38
Is he really sorry about his actions, or is he just sorry for the consequences he is suffering? I dont know. Of course he is going to release a statement like this ("Damage control") regardless of whether he feels any true remorse or not. He is an ex-cheater, racist and I believe I have also seen some topics about him scamming his fans(?). You can only go so far with this "he is young and stupid" excuse, at some point we might have to wonder if this guy simply is an asshole. Just maybe.. I dont know..
2015-01-15 01:38
Poor reputation is an understatement. I think most sensible organisations will hesitate before picking him up.
2015-01-15 01:58
you got what u deserved
2015-01-15 01:41
only 17. plenty of time for him in csgo. hope he will continue to improve and mature and come back next year.

2015-01-15 02:22
This pretty much guarentees that both him and Markeloff are not joing Na'Vi together. Wouldn't be suprised if Na'Vi picked up s1mple as a youth player (not in the team). He has a ban and a bad rep, in 6 months this could all change.
2015-01-15 02:23
Why would they pick him up now, Pay him and not have him play in any meaningful way when a shitstorm is still around him. Doesn't look good for the org. In 6 months time or whenever it blows over and his ban gets lifted then you pick him up. It's not like there are a lot of teams in the CIS region that could lock him down. NaVi can pretty much take whoever they want when they want.
2015-01-15 03:17
they can pay him and teach him, use as standin, etc.. you know, a preparation for future change (somebody retire or so)
2015-01-15 06:21
All im saying is it doesnt really make much sense to do so. Navi can buy him at a later date and save some coin. They wont miss out on a chance. Only makes sense for NaVi picking him up now if they intend to use him in the actual lineup.
2015-01-15 06:28
ok.I just thought that couple of hundreds euros (for example) is worth it to keep him close by. anyway, we'll see
2015-01-15 06:34
Na'Vi has enough money to him as stand-in/backup player. They also paaying ceh9 as Na'Vi official streamer :D So i wont be surprised.....
2015-01-15 06:35
Just because you have enough money to do something doesn't mean you do it. You weight up the odds. Odds are they can get Simple in the future whenever they want. Is simple going to get picked up by Fnatic? by NiP? No. The only top level org this player will ever play for in the immediate 1 year future will be NaVi or Hellraisers again. How is paying ceh9 relevant to this scenario. Ceh9 isnt a player. They pay him for his knowledge and streaming services to the large Russian community for official matches. Completely different. Btw having simple as a backup just limits his improvements. What is he to do for 6 months to a year to potentially forever if the core 5 of NaVi would work out? Both parties are better off letting him go to a semi elite team like DAt to continue playing official matches with solid players to improve. Then if things arent working out in NaVi you pick him up or if he is just going nuts in that team you again pick him up.

i did give a fuck. dude, i keep defending them russians even tho some of them act like total morons only because i am not on that racist train, i dont see nations, all i see is humans, they are part of me aswell, i see so many people hating them russians because the anti russia propaganda is real in the western MSM, i dont fall for their shit, we all got our errors but fuck, a real man is above that bullshit, when i saw that moron saying sieg heil motherfuckers etc all i saw is a pissed off kid that cant control himself. i am above that shit with the hate, i dont hate anyone, i dislike people yes, but i dont scream it all over the internet, i just cut off the contact, it actually is that easy to keep calm. it is the internet, suckers behind screens, they have a big mouth, nothing else.

Its no about the community. Noboby will back up team financially while one their member acts racist. Its also the fact that he has cheated, got banned and went on doing secondary accounts, which extended his ban. That two poor judgement right there. ON TOP of that, he insulted the entire nation.. Three wrong choices are able to convince anybody that fourth poor judgement might, and probably will, come at any point near future. Its quite simple decision to do, as there are abundance of quality players to choose from.
2015-01-15 10:27
Thats true, he deserves this. But being sorry for calling some1 motherfuckers? Thats weird

It's not been announced as a CS:GO major though. It's just been announced that ESL is going back to Poland for another LAN this year. Maybe HR kicked him because they actually know that it's a major?
2015-01-15 08:52
2015-01-15 14:24
It's disgusting how awful you guys are being to this guy. This is this guys passion and livelihood and you guys are throwing him under the bus. He didn't even do anything too severe. Give him a break. He is one of the best players in the world, particularly with the AWP and he doesn't deserve this kind of disrespect.
2015-01-15 03:55
No hes life is beg for skins. GTFO
2015-01-15 04:17
Oh... he cheated and got caught. Then did secondary accounts to go around that. After that he stereotyped and insulted entire nation. Which part of that should grant him respect? Understand that those events that we witnessed was probably tip of an iceberg. Lesson in life #1: Respect is earned through actions, not by been good in computer game as was clearly demonstrated here.
2015-01-15 10:34
Eh probably the shittiest reason to drop a great player. It's just random shit you say online. People joke and say typical shit like lol 'merica hamburger fatass. Thats just the easiest thing to talk shit about regarding germany. Sure it's in bad taste, but no one believes all germans are nazis lmfao pls some tough skin
2015-01-15 04:38
fatass and beeing racist are 2 different things...germans wouldn´t care about insults like "bratwurst beer fckers" or some shit...racism is in germany still one of the biggest problems cuz ppl are braindead ;) u can compare it with "i wanna shoot riceeater" and not "muricans are fat" everyone would be pissed... i don´t give a fck what he said about germans but not everyone is like me...a lot of germans would be pissed cuz of that :)
2015-01-15 05:39

2015-01-15 06:10
how do you know this
2015-01-15 07:11
Do you really think company like ASUS wants people playing under their name who insult others online? This happens all the time in others sports. Like T.Woods, he lost many sponsors by cheating on his wife, which isnt even on same severity level meaning to cheat on ones wife is just game in which the wife gets hurt. Insulting results bad image in minds of thousands of people.

Really dissapointing but understandable decicion from HR management. He cannot play in ESL tournaments which are huge in CS:GO. Also those comments didn't help him at all. Shame, it really is. S1mple is by far the best eastern european player (EX-CCCP). Awesome young talent. We will hear from he again. I would say he is easily in top10 players atm.
2015-01-15 09:29
I bet deep down he madly hates the germans. This kind of disappointment wont go away in such an young age.
2015-01-15 09:34
I think the main issues here was his ban - that's why he got dropped. His atittude is bad but people should stop acting like there only a few rotten apples in the whole scene. CS players aren't saints and they all like to talk trash. Today's society is filled with pussies that get offended by absolutely everything that's why everyone is backed in a corner trying to act politically correct.

2015-01-15 22:58
He's only 17! And his response to all this is very very mature. Keep in mind he was probably 15 or even younger when he got his ESL ban. Seems a bit unfair that the ban is so long, given you do so much shit when you're young.
2015-01-16 00:11
