"literally nothing he did would've changed the outcome of that match."
Not true this happened at a time where Skadoodle was actually good at the game if he awped properly he could of shit on NCG.
The fact he chose to actually not try in essence to lose on purpose to match fix is on him, he could of tried if he wanted to and even if they still lost people would watch the demo back years ago and feel content this guy actually didn't throw.
Literally only didn't get banned because of timing, everyone was paid out their throw skins and it took the guy longer to get Skadoodle's share and by that time the story was already out there so he obviously turned down the payment.
Just think for a second if no one suspected a thing (they made the throw as obvious at it gets) he would of taken his reward and been banned as well but again timing was on his side.
I can compare throw to anything I want, in essence is pretty equal if you really think of the situation it doesn't have to be a murder either just any crime and standing in front of the judge telling them I didn't want to do it (the act is already been commited) doesn't change the out come of your sentence.
"compare it to a group of 5 people, where 4 people murder 1 guy, but the 5th member didn't do anything and was just forced to watch."
So you're saying he should of been punished? This logic would mean he's an accessory to the murder which is still a crime.
If we apply this logic which is fair enough imo he would of still been punished and that's why I don't get why he wasn't just because he didn't accept his payment, he still match fixed, he played like shit on purpose, he's the main awper and he didn't awp, he purposely missed his shots and did retard plays he threw simple as that.
