Just one thing. Your point of s1mple boosting stats against Tier2/3 is completely false, and point about baiting is ill-informed.
Navi played 3 Tier-2 events in 2020.
1st one ESL Road to Rio, Navi got knocked out in early group stages, and s1mple didn't do shit.
2nd, s1mple had the worst-performing tournament of his pro-career in IEM New York 2020 (bottom-fragging and not even in top10 in the tournament in any stat). His 2020 rating literally fell from 1.30 to 1.28 in just one tournament (which is a huuuuge fall). He played that bad.
3rd - WePlay Clutch island. Navi won this because they needed to win for getting RMR points, and played seriously in CIS tournaments, for once. Still, s1mple wasn't even high-rated in WePlay Clutch Island. Mir and a couple of other guys had higher ratings and stats than s1mple.
Statistically, s1mple has much higher ratings in bigger tournaments in 2020 (S-Tier) against the biggest teams (check his rating against the best teams and compare his rating against Tier2/3 teams on his HLTV profile. He's actually much bad against CIS teams). If anything, his stats got pulled DOWN and NOT up due to playing Tier2 events. If he really wanted to pad his stats, CIS tournaments are the best place. What did s1mple do? Literally mention, "I and my team don't care about this tournament, since we already have enough points, so I'm taking it lightly". He then went on to give 0 fucks about the tournament, and hung out with streamers, gf, parties, drinking, etc, and didn't even practice. Hence, that point of yours is wrong.
And finally, Blade himself mentioned that s1mple has been given the role of trading efficiently, and providing support to the entry fraggers, rather than himself entry every round (still, he has 0.14 opening kills per round in 2020, compared to Zywoo's 0.15, which is pretty damn close imo. So, that's another argument). This is not 2016/2017 s1mple who had the freedom to play whatever he wished to. He now has the responsibility of not dying and seeing his team through the finish line, which unfortunately he's not really able to do, I agree. I would want him and electronic to be the permanent entries.
