Well, your post seems to imply that there is a level of skill required in this game. I mostly disagree. The game is like 70% connection, 29% luck, and 1% knowing which thumbstick moves and which trigger fires.


Obviously skill is required, just like in any game. It's called a game because it doesn't involve 100% luck, meaning there's a purpose for trying, because your skill (among other things) can aid you.

People like you exaggerate to stupid extremes. I realize it doesn't require as much skill as a sport, and that connections and playing in parties play a huge role. But obviously skill is involved. You can't tell me a soccer mom with no video game experience can hop in a game and go 50-0. Good grief. Take another math class, because your grasp on statistics is horrendous on a good day.


A soccer mom with an ideal connection and an SMG or 870 could easily go positive if she knew the thumbsticks and triggers.

I hate when people have too much of an ego to admit when they're wrong. And you sit are wrong.

Because people who think they are good are usually the same people who only have Diamond shotguns to show for it.

It seems popular on this board to use bad weapons as a way to solidify skill.
