Kane: "I can't say that s1mple behaved that way often when I was coaching NAVI"2022-11-29 12:29:00
Former NAVI coach Mikhailo "kane" Blahin commented on Oleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev's emotional outbursts during the recent BLAST Fall Finals event. There were a couple of clips with the Ukrainian superstar acting annoyed toward his teammates after losing rounds. Kane thinks it's not a typical s1mple behavior, but they had to work around it during his time in NAVI.
I can't say that he behaved that way often when I was coaching NAVI. But it's something that shouldn't happen at all. We were working on this issue with a psychologist. For Sanya, it's important to be aware of everything happening in the game, including why his team loses. He is very prone to emotions in the game, but he controls them perfectly out of the server.
This situation proves that sdy actually wasn't accepted by the team. The sooner they'll part ways, the better. That's my subjective opinion.
S1mple received a lot of criticism for his behaviour from fans and industry figures. And while a lot was said about him, some also wondered why team leaders Andrii "B1ad3" Horodenskyi and Denis "electroNic" Sharipov didn't stop their star.
Sdy has been playing for NAVI for almost half a year, ever since Boombl4's departure. The IGL reigns went to electronic, and, for some time, the team maintained their level. When they lost to FaZe Clan in the IEM Cologne grand final, B1ad3 and s1mple didn't spare sdy for his performance. After the summer break, the team had worse results, as they lost to FURIA in Rio and to NiP in Fall Finals 2022 at the early playoff stages.
