It looks like on the night of 1st May unknown people heavily damaged Natus Vincere’s star player Oleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev’s car, which was a black coloured 2018 Porsche Panamera GTS. The damaged sedan had both the rear-view mirrors removed from the car, while the headlights had been completely smashed.
According to the post made by dtp.kiev.ua on their Instagram account, the incident took place at Auchan paid parking on Dragomanova Street where s1mple’s car can be seen parked in the spot reserved for disabled people. But according to Alexey Kostylev who is the Creative Director of Na’Vi, the car was initially parked closer to the guard and was later moved to the disabled parking spot, after the unknown people damaged the vehicle.
S1mple had purchased the car after he decided to sell his old Audi and just wanted to replace it with something newer, according to an interview with HLTV which he gave earlier this year. The player never shared this information on his social media as he did not want people to think that he is losing motivation, doesn't want to practise, or other such things.
S1mple who is considered to be one of the best CS:GO player in the world has not commented on the situation yet, and no news about the culprits has been made public at the time of writing this article. The comment section was clearly furious, especially worried that a vehicle was not at all safe even in a paid parking space.
S1mple is currently competing with Na’Vi at ESL One: Road to Rio - CIS, where the Ukrainian organization has already won its first match against Espada with a clean ‘2-0’ victory, though they did slightly struggle in the second map on Nuke.
