s1mple steps in for HellRaisers
Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev is bootcamping with HellRaisers' team ahead of DreamHack Open Stockholm.
HellRaisers had been in the market for a new fifth player following the surprise departure of Russian veteran Mihail "Dosia" Stolyarov, whose future is now up in the air.
With the offline qualifier for DreamHack Open Cluj due to start in less than ten days, HellRaisers moved swiftly and called Oleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev, who had been plying his trade in Worst Players since stepping down from FlipSid3 Tactics' active roster, in July.
s1mple to play for HellRaisers again
The 17-year-old is no stranger to HR, having played for the team from September 2014 to January 2015. Despite turning in some impressive performances, s1mple ended up being released together with Yegor "markeloff" Markelov, with the duo eventually linking up with the now FlipSid3 Tactics squad in dAT Team.
"I would like to thank FlipSid3 for allowing me to play for another team, since I am still a member of FlipSid3," he told HLTV.org.
"I would also like to thank HellRaisers. They have given me the opportunity to play for them as before, like at DreamHack Winter, where we reached the quarter-finals."
