If you use technique only you can transfer your success into other FPS games.
If you used to be a great AWPer in CS or Source but suck in GO you are not relying on technique. If the scope blur and bobble cause you to not be as good as you were in CS or Source you are relying on "muscle memory" more than anything else, thus changes to the AWP will cause a drop in your performance.
You could do a simple test to see if you are relying on technique or muscle memory. Basically, play GO without the crosshair/HUD. You might also want to switch mice within the same play session.

Screw modern mice and all that nonsense , just give me a ballmouse and teach me your ways. Apparently some people in here transcended past all that, perfect mouse without filters and accel , shape and buttons and sensor and all that. With the right technique you can even play with a mouse that changes its dpi every 2 seconds.
I really appreciate to have guys like Ino here in this forum. Because some of you guys, holy crap
I once gave qsxcv some advice for GO, which also applies to every FPS game.
One of the things I said to him was, "The easiest way to get good is to learn how to shoot without a crosshair."
He replied with, "i thought you were crazy but this actually works
literally one weird trick."
