s1mple stated that he doesn't intend to play together with B1ad3 and markelof anymore

Player from Ukraine, Alexander "s1mple" Kostylev, shared insights in his interview with Duncan "Thorin" Shields, explaining the reason behind leaving FlipSid3 Tactics. The esports professional stated he departed due to a desire to exclude Andrey "B1ad3" Gorodenskiy from the team.

"After the round, I typed three dots in the chat and mentioned post-match that I wouldn't play with B1ad3 and markeloff again. Later, at the hotel, I made a social media post suggesting either removing B1ad3 from the roster or making him a coach. Some teammates agreed. We discussed it with FlipSid3's management, including Dana and Hector. They declined removing B1ad3. I responded: 'Why? We just discussed this to make us stronger.' Afterward, I posted and left the team.

At that time, I could eliminate opponents in the server, but I understood B1ad3 aimed to teach me a different perspective of the game and opponent reading. I'm certain many of my former FlipSid3 teammates didn't share my view and trained differently. I enjoy playing extensively to learn various situations and gain experience useful in tournaments."

Additionally, s1mple discussed the period after Danil "Zeus" Teslenko left NAVI.

"Seized claimed that after Zeus was replaced, there were no other captain candidates except him. But I feel he merely wanted to be a captain because he and flamie sought Zeus's exclusion. Then seized realized someone else should take the role.

During this time, new rules emerged limiting the coach's communication with the team, rendering Starix ineffective. He couldn't work on par with B1ad3, peacemaker, or other coaches."
