Sure the game has things like Internet speeds that make a difference but to blame every death or mistake on something within the game is unrealistic. Sometimes the team or individual is simply better than you, It wasn't lag, aimbot, or hacks. You sometimes are simply inferior to the opponent in aim, movement, tactics, etc. Unless you are a professional level playing for money, no reason exists to get so worked up.

Because a lot of the time it's not true.

I'll admit when I've been outplayed or outshot, but it seems like more often than not I died because I got shot around the corner or didn't have enough time to react at all (i.e. <300ms between seeing the opponent and dying to him)

What makes someone better though? Let's say you got a camper and someone like me who runs around the entire game. We both have the same kd at the end of the round. Am I better? What about noon toobs or head glitchers, spawn campers. Too much to factor in. I love this game and its too hard to tell skill from crap players from stats. In certain players eyes they could lose and still feel they are better for the above mentioned reasons.

Sometimes it's just bad luck too. I've only met one person who consistently outplayed me. But even then, he had 4 bars and I always had 3. :(
