CSGO major winner S1mple got a rampage in Dota 2 with a LifeStealer. Will Sasha go pro in Valve’s award-winning MOBA?
Simple made an epic match in an online game. But it’s not CSGO. Definitely not an FPS.
It’s Valve’s E-Sports MOBA, Defense of The Ancients 2: Reborn. 12 years of beta have produced the most competitive, highest paying esports title.

S1mple is the best gamer who ever touched CSGO. But is there any chance that Sasha can compete with the Dota 2 gods?
Ace in CS: GO, Ace in Dota 2?
In a recently released Twitch clip, S1mple can be seen playing LifeStealer Carry. He is activated by Slardar (whom he has attacked), Lich, Mirana, and a medium puck.
The fight began when Puck was ganked by the entire enemy team. It was AntiMage, in conjunction with Techies, Clinkz, Rubik, and Pangolier.
Combat is a good example of counter-initiation and a clean team fight. Right now, the Dota 2 patch is leaning more towards strength heroes. The last meta was agi-meta through and through.
Likewise, Life thief has insane nuke potential with Infested Bomb. In addition, the free magical immunity to fury power LS broken in midgame.

Automatic attacks with Desolator and Armlet of Mordiggan made life easier. Simple game, easy rampage. But honestly, not as easy as it sounds.
Take CounterStrike, take Dota 2?
S1mple had an excellent support crew. They helped in the following ways:
- calendar ultimate Chain frost is an atomic bomb that bounces back and forth between enemies. The ricochets decimated Clinkz, Techies and Rubik.
- Sdardar has a Slithereen Crush, Blow of the deep and Corrosive haze. The passive blow makes life extremely difficult for opponents, along with constant vision and increased damage SS.

- Mirana offers Moonlight shadow for invisibility and Holy arrow for long-term stunning. A decent amount of follow up is with Star storm and Leap automatic attack.
puck died defending himself. But it is SS, Dream coil wreaked havoc in enemy ranks due to leash and stun when breaking. But it was enough to lock and initiate the opposing team.
The timing of the team fight setup needs to be perfect. One wrong click can end the fight in disaster. However, the rampage would not have been possible without AM’s 322.

S1mple in Dota 2 to the professional?
Moving esports titles completely is a big job. Difficult is an understatement when switching from FPS to MOBA.
It would be like asking Valentino Rossi to compete in F1. Or Lewis Hamilton in MotoGP. But nothing is impossible.
There was also news that EG Arteezy is playing the adventures of Valorant and NGX Miracle in CSGO pubs. Maybe S1mple Dota 2 Rampage is just the beginning.
It would be an honor to have Sasha “S1mple” Kostyliev on board. But all in all, Sasha isn’t ready enough for the Dota 2 Professional Circuit.
