against MAD Lions. As a result, Alexander’s score was 37/8 (K/D).

Three-time Player of the Year according to HLTV

In 2022, S1mple became the Player of the Year according to HLTV. Indeed, 2022 was
the best year in NaVi’s career, particularly in Alexander’s career. The player swiftly
approached this title. It was clear in advance that he would receive this title if he did
not lower the bar and played as he had before. Also, Alexander managed to take the
title of the Best Player of 2021 and 2018 (World Records in CS:GO).

Two years in a row in second place (Anti-record)

years in a row, making him the only one with this strange anti-record. This happened
in 2019 and 2020. But there is nothing to worry about, as he became the Player of the
Year twice in a row after that.
