xQc may be an FPS titan himself, but even he couldn’t help but be impressed with the Clinic S1mple held on his way to winning CSGO’s BLAST Spring Finals event.
It’s hard to surprise an FPS veteran like xQc. From the halls of professional Overwatch to competing against the best content creators in the world, he’s traversed the gamut of competitive gaming.
One game that hasn’t quite come under its power yet is Counter Strike, but not for lack of trying. The Canadian creator tried several times but didn’t find the same success in it as in other titles.
When s1mple (arguably the greatest CS player of all time) showed up with a mind-blowing foursome during a BLAST Spring Final match, the pro-turned-professional had nothing but high praise for the legend.

It was four rounds into Natus Vincere’s match against OG Esports when it really clicked.
Na’Vi set up for a bomb factory on Dust2 and grabbed an early first blood thanks to a good shot from Electronic, but s1mple absolutely took over from there.
He started off with a double headshot at Degster before flicking down to reveal Nexa hiding beneath him. From there, the rest of OG Lammers were up for slaughter as the CS legend pushed forward and cleaned the house.
After witnessing all of this, xQc looked physically disturbed.
“What the hell?” he asked. “Checking his PC and game…”
Of course, the streamer was only joking, but he replayed the clip to watch it again, and before deciding that s1mple must be superhuman, he continued to meme.
“Not usually, actually…” he said, which translates to mean that’s not normal for those of us who don’t speak twitch chat.
Of course, although he laughed for most of his review, xQc knows how hard it is to be good in CS.
His own adventures in the game have only yielded mediocre results, and he’s even managed to accidentally recreate one of the game’s most infamous bugs.
