Not even the highest % and still finds the most openings of anyone on the team. Doesnt that speak volumes about how much impact he has when he goes for those picks. And like I said they use him for EVERYTHING. He opens, he trades, he clutches. Last year he was 1st on opening duels/success and 2nd in clutches, that means he was finding PEAK impact at the start and finish of the round.
Also you didnt finish that quote. He also often utilizes the space create by boombl4 to get into positions where he can make play. The reason he clutches so much isnt because hes always playing passive and trading. Its because he literally wins all of his gun fights that round and is the only one left.
You'll notice most of s1mples clutches are 3ks and 4ks, not 1v2s or 1v1s like xyp9x. Because he gets kills throughout the round with openings and trades and then positions smartly for the rest of the round.
