Oleksandr "Shara" Hordieiev (born December 8, 1992) is an Ukrainian Counter-Strike: Global Offensive player and former Counter-Strike 1.6 player.

Professional career[edit]

Gordeev has been part of the competitive scene for over five years, however he was not known by many at all until 2015, when he stood in for Flipsid3 Tactics' CIS team, where he stood in for Vadim "DavCost" Vasilyev - a backup player for Flipsid3, who previously stood in for the team at ESL tournaments, due to Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostylev's ESL ban. Before then, Gordeev has been part of a small Ukrainian team known as spray'n'pray, and he has previously played for teams such as KerchNET and Amazing Gaming.

Shara previously stood in for Flipsid3 when DavCost took time off from playing for Flipsid3, therefore, Gordeev was brought into the team as a temporary stand-in instead of Vasilyev. Gordeev has played for the team as a stand-in on many different occasions since then. He has remained as a stand-in for Flipsid3 since Vasilyev left the team in November. He stayed in Flipsid3 as an active stand-in until December 19th 2015, when Flipsid3 Tactics signed him as a player on a permanent basis. Gordeev stayed as an active stand-in for Flipsid3 until January 1st 2016, however, because he wanted to make sure that his former team: spray'n'pray had someone to replace him by the time he joined Flipsid3.

During his time in Flipsid3 Shara garnered considerable criticism for his allegedly lackluster performances by much of the online community as well as by analysts such as Duncan "Thorin" Shields. On the September 21st, 2016, Shara was removed from the starting lineup of Flipsid3 and replaced by electronic on a trial basis. After leaving Flipsid3, Shara formed a new Ukrainian lineup, Spray'n'pray, which lasted until January 29th 2018 when arch and smike left the team, citing poor results.
