My team went up against TCM gaming in the Euro qualifiers yesterday, and when you play a team like that it really opens you're eyes. Their level of organisation and planning was insane and suffice to say they completely destroyed us. Although there might not be a great deal of skill in the actual gameplay, when it comes to tea play and strategising it takes a lot of effort and definitely skill to carry that sort of stuff out.
For example, they beat us 49-250 on Hardpoint because as soon as they get in it they lock it down so tight it's unreal. That's where the real skill lies and I challenge anyone to say its non existent to go against an organised team and still say that.
Some people just get just bitter when they lose frequently. This game definitly requires some skill. If it didn't require skill than dashboarding wouldn't be such a big problem because everyone would do well. If this game didn't require skill than why do some people do consistantly bad while others do consistantly good?
