s1mple doesn't think Krieg needs a nerf
During IEM Katowice 2020 portal DBLTAB discussed with professional players the need to change the current shooting meta in CS:GO, associated with the high power of SG 553 rifle. The questions were answered by Natus Vincere players, among others. Natus Vincere leader Alexander "s1mple" Kostylev paid attention to the shortcomings of other rifles, and proposed to leave the characteristics and price of SG 553 unchanged.
Many professional players have repeatedly urged Valve to revise the characteristics of SG 553. This rifle was practically not used in the game until its price was lowered to $2750 in October 2018. Update of November 19, 2019 raised the price to $3000, but this weapon still remained the main side of the attack. For example, on IEM Katowice 2020 SG 553 became the most popular rifle - it was used in 26.6% of rounds.
