One of the best CS:GO players in the world, Oleksandr “s1mple” Kostyliev, has had a great 2021 so far. He’s won a total of six MVP (Most Valuable Player) awards as well as his first Major win and Intel Grand Slam title.

All these achievements have led him to be named ‘PC Esports Gamer of the Year’ by the Esports Awards, however, the reaction of s1mple has been quite harsh.

S1mple called Esports Awards for faking his voice during his acceptance speech
Usually, when a player wins a prize, they are happy about it and share the news around with a celebratory and positive attitude. However, this is not the case after s1mple was named the best PC esports gamer of 2021 by the Esports Awards.
The 24-year-old was quick to point out the strangely modulated voice in his acceptance speech posted by the Esports Awards, calling it “named”. The NAVI star was pretty upset about it, as the voiceover in his pre-recorded speech was clearly altered and didn’t match his original voice at all.
He said that to him it felt like “they (Esports Awards) really hate me,” further highlights that his voice feels laggy and cracked. The last words from s1mple were “(I) wish they would do better next year”.
To further prove his point, s1mple even shared the original unedited version of his acceptance speech while asking the question, “Tell me, what do you not understand?”. Most people respond by saying that he can be heard completely and that everything he says is clearly understood.
This only reinforces his point to the Esports Awards that there is absolutely no need to change his voice without any rhyme or reason.
