Not so friendly

s1mple falls out with Kinguin Legends teammate

Following the conclusion of Kinguin Legends yesterday, Oleksandr “s1mple” Kostyliev fell out on Twitter with his temporary teammate at the event, Volodymyr “Woro2k” Veletniuk. The Ukrainian superstar had stood in for team Edward at the grand final but wasn’t happy with his fellow countryman’s play.

After losing the grand final of the event to Team Maikelele, Woro2k took to Twitter to thank his teammates. But he had no kind words for NAVI’s AWPer. According to Woro2k, s1mple showed poor attitude during the match.

S1mple was quick to respond and accused Woro of not communicating, closing out his message by saying that “Time passes quickly, start making progress.”

During the grand final of Kinguin Legends, neither s1mple nor Woro managed to impress, with Woro’s teammate on Monte Mohammad “BOROS” Malhas stealing the limelight on Maikelele’s team.

But the back and forth didn’t stop there. Woro2K continued to call out s1mple’s attitude, with the latter stating he found the 21-year-old a “Stupid player.”

Kinguin Legends, a $50.000 event featuring several stars of CSGO’s past as team captains, concluded its first iteration last Sunday. Former NIP player Maikel “Maikelele” Bill beat former NAVI player Ioann “Edward” Sukhariev in the grand final.

While a second iteration of the event hasn’t been announced yet, Kinguin has stated it wants to make it a reoccurring series. The CSGO event was the first one, but in the future, it will likely extend to different titles, giving retired and older pros a chance to show they still have what it takes and younger ones a chance to play with legends of their game.
