I meant to post this a while ago but i never got around to do it. The topic about skill on this board inspired me to do it. Is strategy skill? I personally think so. Especially since I played A LOT of Fire Emblem games and other handheld RPGs. (Those were the best to me) Even turned based was strategy. We always considered that skill back on those GFaqs boards. You use strategy in Call of Duty as well. How much strategy you use depends on the individual. If you believe that is the case then why do so many people say Call of Duty doesn't take skill of you need strategy? --- This is a message board. I don't care about my spelling or grammar on GFaqs. You don't like my grammar mistakes? Get over it.
Yes, obviously being able to think is a skill that is rare among the COD community. The thing is that in the newer COD's, all you have to do is chase the red dot and have a better connection than your opponent.
