s1mple is one of the best players of the planet!

Dear friends, we are glad to announce that ua Oleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev took eighth place in the Player Ranking 2017. He left behind his former teammate sk GuardiaN, as well as a number of other prominent players, such as kz AdreN, dk Kjaerbye, dk Xyp9x, us EliGE.

ua s1mple was the best in 2017 in the following categories: average kills per round (0.84), average damage per round (87.4). He also had the biggest impact on the team success (his average damage in the victorious rounds was 112.4).

Compared to his fourth position last year, eighth place might look like a drop down. However, we should take into account the undersatisfactory performance of the Born to Win throughout 2017. In this regard, s1mple's placement in the Global Ranking looks quite amazing. We hope that in 2018 Sasha will help his team achieve the success at the tournaments and will finally achieve one of his numerous goals to become the best player in the world! #gonavi
