Results don’t justify a bad play or argument

‘Chiu on This’ is a short and regular opinion blast

When a player in CS:GO wins an amazing round, fans are likely to ignore anything the player did wrong. This doesn’t just apply to CS:GO, but to all other esports. It also applies to arguments. Today xms got an ace with five bullets, but in a 1-v-3 he refused to either reload or pick up another gun. While it was much more exciting that he didn’t do it, from an objective point of view that was a terrible play because reloading or getting a new gun that had more bullets wouldn’t have cost him anything.

I’ll also give another example from Dota 2. Nahaz said Liquid was locked to be invited to The International 7 because it had the best early game. TI invites have almost always been decided by LAN results, so the argument wasn’t sound. There was a Dota 2 thread after Liquid won EPICENTER saying Nahaz was right, but someone in the thread pointed out the fact that if Nahaz being right was predicated on the fact that Liquid had to win EPICENTER first, he was in fact wrong.
