The Game Awards 2021: NAVI is the best team, s1mple — the best player

The Game Awards 2021 has announced the winners of the award. Natus Vincere won in the best esports team category, and their leader Aleksandr “s1mple” Kostyliev became the best esports PC player of the year.

In 2021, NAVI won several big esports Counter-Strike tournaments. PGL Major Stockholm 2021, the main event of the year, was one of them.

This year on the occasion of the fifth anniversary of Aleksandr “s1mple” Kostyliev joining the team, NAVI released a documentary film, S1mple formula. In this film, commentators, analysts, parents, teammates, and Aleksandr’s coach discuss the “s1mple success formula.”

Why it’s important

The Game Awards is the world’s top gaming award. Last year, the audience for the ceremony exceeded that of the Oscars by eight times. The Game Awards has gained tremendous popularity not only because of the awards but also because of the show hosted by Geoff Keighley.
