You already said it. He would've lost. However putting a rifle on a player as talented as s1mple is a waste especially because TTK has to be considered. Hitting heads in a 1v3 especially when you don't know where you will be peeked from is considerable more difficult than AWPing them. If he doesn't get instant headshots he will take rifle damage from players and with 3 players it's likely he just dies, perhaps like 100 > 80 > 30 > 0 hp with every duel. And he only took the no scope because he had to. He was blind behind smoke, there's no way he quickscopes a target he can't see. Nothing s1mple did in either clutch was wrong. Also this has to be a bait post because in Blast Premier he did a 1v4 clutch with AK-47 vs G2 on Nuke not too long ago.
