FlipSid3 release s1mple

FlipSid3 Tactics have announced that they have terminated the contract of Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev.

The 18-year-old signed for FlipSid3 Tactics in February following his departure from HellRaisers and further enhanced his credentials as one of the game's hottest prospects with a series of impressive displays, both online and offline.

However, he fell out of favour after ESWC, in July, as he publicly criticised his teammates in the aftermath of the event, leading to his immediate removal from the active roster, even though he remained bound to the organisation by contract.

After a short stint in Worst Players, Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev stepped in for HellRaisers in time for DreamHack Open Stockholm, where the team finished outside of the qualification places for the Cluj major.

s1mple has been freed from his contract 

Many believed that it was just a matter of time before s1mple signed for HellRaisers, but the Ukrainian organisation claimed on Thursday that a deal to buy the player out of his FlipSid3 Tactics contract had fallen through.

But in yet another surprising turn of events, s1mple has been told he is free to find another team, though it remains to be seen whether he still plans to commit to HellRaisers, who remain in the market for a new fifth player.

eh? not rlly, he left hr and flipside.
2015-10-24 00:51
and he was a toxic shithead
2015-10-24 01:55
sure, but thats not what we were talking about
2015-10-24 02:37
I was being ironic xD
2015-10-24 03:26
didnt seem like it :P
2015-10-24 14:34
Who were to understand did it. Apparently you weren't.
2015-10-25 02:14
dis english o.o
2015-10-26 00:09
Stop being toxic man, i just did a comment, accept the fact that you didn't understood i what i meant.
2015-10-26 01:35
How am i being toxic? Your last comment was literally impossible to understand, try reading it yourself... Kids and the word "toxic" these days..
2015-10-26 02:49
how hard is it to find a tooth paste in Venezuela these days? I heard that it is pretty hard xD. BTW, im not a kid, and as i said, who were to understand my comment understood, as you weren't you didnt/couldnt.
2015-10-26 12:01
"Who were to understand did it. Apparently you weren't." this comment makes no sense, please write it in english. or is the education too poor in finland to offer english classes? why are we talking about toothpaste all the sudden. i get the feeling youre autistic :D
2015-10-26 12:24
"who were to understand my comment understood, as you weren't you didnt/couldnt." I was talking about my first comment, which i did to a friend of mine. He understood. You didnt because it wasnt meant for you. Youre talking about my english... Why dont you add me on skype to chat with me in english? I can speak Finnish, English, French and Portuguese.
2015-10-26 13:00
""Who were to understand did it. Apparently you weren't." is still an autistic comment. i dont give a fuck about grammar, but atleast write so people can understand
2015-10-26 14:10
OMG man, i was talking about my first comment in which i made to a friend of mine. Please, stop with this... I know that the sentence ""Who were to understand did it. Apparently you weren't." makes no sense and if you want i can apologise for you. Just stop with this. Also, if you knew how serious is this "austistic" thing you keep on talking... People suffer so much with this that if you had any notion you wouldn't be playing with such a sad thing.
2015-10-26 14:43
oh jesus youre one of those.. im not gonna stop using a word just because its a serious illness. no one gives a fuck and neither should you..
2015-10-26 14:45
Cant you understand that I dont want you to stop using the world? You can say whatever you want, i just dont want you to keep on with this argue about my comment.
2015-10-26 14:52
"Also, if you knew how serious is this "austistic" thing you keep on talking... People suffer so much with this that if you had any notion you wouldn't be playing with such a sad thing. " forgot that you typed this? rofl

If you had any notion you wouldn't. Im not replying to you anymore, bye!
2015-10-26 15:21
well finns are known be to autistic, so im not surprised you are
2015-10-26 16:10
Actually, why dont we stop with this?
2015-10-26 13:05
Ironic is when you say "poor Kostyliev" even though you're worthless yourself I think you mean that what you said was said in a sarcastic manner.
2015-10-24 18:18
Ofc it was man.

2015-10-24 22:55
He is not poor. He is toxic brainwashed Ukraine kid. He flames everyone, started a fighr with oskar without a reason, blames his team in front of everyone. You can clearly see that this kid may be good at the game, but he is a total kid, 18 y/o says it all
2015-10-25 06:48
Yes, you definitely know, that they fought without reason, like, you were there, all praise our lord from Slovakia.
2015-10-25 19:45
Fanboism real in this one. Even markeloff and b1ad3 said in interviews that s1mple is immature and starts fights without reason

Oskar is good in matchmaking. He had like 9 kills vs SK. Usually in CS that would be acceptable, but in this case SK is a bunch of underaged NN danes that have been playing together for 1 week and most of them are horrible.

ofc they do, no one wants that kind of player in a long term team.
2015-10-23 23:47

2015-10-23 23:48
obviously teams care, lmao, if they keep releasing him.
2015-10-23 23:49
im not talking about teams, im talking about the general watcher of Counter Strike. And also, Flipsid3 has been the only org to kick him, get your fact straight

well technically he rage quit then they removed him
2015-10-24 00:17
whether he leaves, or they release him, why does it matter? he obviously has issues he hasn't hammered out. what's the point of talking about how skilled a player is if he cant stay on a team long enough to be worth it?
2015-10-24 00:44
he just needs to find the right team Kappa Keepo
2015-10-24 01:15
HR kicked him before he went to f3 aswell.

yeah. i hope you know this game is about being a team, because you dont seem to know the importance of backing your teammates when they make mistakes. if you know anything, you will also know that people will rather take the nicer lesser skilled than the toxic better skilled.
2015-10-23 23:49

You know nothing about how he's acting, it's more important to look good beeing good footballer than being good cs player xd. Different money, i remember that Ronaldo gave 5m or something for Nepal earthquake victims, and later they denied it. Ronaldo can afford people for good image, simple cant do it and he doesnt give a fuck xd.
2015-10-25 09:52
United States 7hai 
yeah, but isnt that where he is hurting himself? you dont need big money for people to see you in a good light. alone his twitterfeed is a disaster. look at pasha for example. he doesnt spend big money on publicity, he is just a genuinley nice guy, thats why many people including me, love him. its that s1mple actuall (see what i did there? ;))

Imho simple has to be taught a lesson in order him to understand - if such thing if possible at all - that he needs to improve his discipline when playing in a top team as I strongly doubt that he is able to change his character - too old for that. That's why HR should take schneider instead of pseudo god.

They kicked him cuz he had too many P1mples

Am I the only one thinking the reason HR kicked s1mple has nothing to do with the contract? And the fact that F3 release him 1 day after proves that?

Fuck off 1.6 cheater, typical CS:GO kids, needing cheats in 1.6 to compete against the oldskoolers. Once a cheater, always a cheater. He is mentally fucked up and it'll never change.
