Even after ESL One Cologne I didn't want to play with Liquid ,cuz of only 1 reason – I didn't want to live in NA,that's all what I can say .

Simple has been at the forefornt post Hikoś rant about his ex-team. Simple was made to look as the bad guy, despite he being clear in what his intentions were. He was not used to playing in a different country under such diverse circumstance. Ofcourse internal friction within the team also led to his decision to quit Team Liquid and go back to his country.
