During his long tenure in CS:GO, s1mple triumphed in numerous tournaments, including the PGL Stockholm Major, IEM Katowice, IEM Cologne, and more. These victories cemented s1mple as the best player in history and an undisputed GOAT of CS:GO, and arguably Counter-Strike as a whole.

S1mple took a break from professional play in October 2023 to take care of personal affairs. While many feared he would remain outside the competitive scene for a long time, that changed at IEM Katowice 2024. During the event, the superstar announced he’s hoping to return after the PGL Copenhagen Major.

Tip: Try some deathmatches before jumping into Premier

Players often just copy pros’ settings and jump straight into the Premier mode or matchmaking. Try a few deathmatches or practice maps first to see if s1mple’s settings suit you.

While using s1mple’s CS2 settings can be one of the best ways to climb up the ranks, make sure you change your viewmodel, crosshair, and video features to suit your playstyle. Sticking to someone’s settings doesn’t always work. If you don’t like s1mple’s settings, you can always check out for other players, like NiKo, ZywOo, or m0NESY.
