Simple had a knack for gaming at a very early age. He started off CSGO right when the game released and build a reputable for being one of the topmost prodigy that the CIS region had to offer. Due to his insane mechanical skill and precise aim, Simple made it to the competitive CSGO at a very early age.
Simple joined his first CSGO team called LAN DODGERS in 2013. The team was mainly built around playing in the CIS region. With the team Simple showed how talented he was and despite his young age could pull off impressive clutches. His excellent performance attracted the attention of Hellraisers, which he joined in 2014.
In the early days of Hellraisers, although Simple showed immense potential and was the best player on the team, they didn’t win anything. Simple in game conduct was also brought into question after his inadequate comments about Germans in 2015. Subsequently, Hellraiser kicked Simple from the roster.
Simple also received a Ban from ESL due to his alleged cheating scandal. However, right afterwards the ban was lifted and Simple signed with flipside tactics. In his early career days, Simple expected better from his team mates so whichever team he would go to, Simple will get the toxic label. Being too good for Simple also meant that he wanted others around him to be brilliant as well.
Due to his disappointing stint with EU teams, Simple joined with an American organization named Team Liquid. In Team Liquid he met Hiko, the Hiko and Simple duo would change the behavior of Simple. In Team Liquid he learned to calm himself, which proved very good for the team.
In 2016 Team Liquid managed to qualify for the semifinal of the MLG Major. In the following year they reached the final of the next valve sponsored major. The results were coming for Simple, but they were not what he had wanted. Simple had a passion for being the best and that meant winning the major and not just being finalist or semifinalist.
Simple left Team Liquid in late 2016 and returned to his CIS region to join Natus Vincere. He has been on the Natus Vincere roster ever since and has managed to win 2 major championships with the squad. The simple we know at Natus Vincere is deadly, precise, pinpoint, ready to take your head off but also very calm and calculated, a quality which was lacking in the earlier version of Simple.
Simple was named the best HLTV player in 2016 and 2017. In 2018 he was named the second-best player and ever since Simple was not dropped out of the HLTV top 10 player list.
