"In this second study, they found that for large groups consisting of thousands of players, performance in MOBAs and IQ behave in similar ways as players get older. But this effect was not found for First Person Shooters, where performance declined after the teens.

The researchers say the correlation between ability at action strategy video games such as League of Legends and Defence of the Ancients 2 (DOTA 2) and a high IQ is similar to the correlation seen in other more traditional strategy games such as chess."

This may just mean, that "git gud" is not as relevant as we might think *ponders*

Well, it could be a certain definition of average. What's the quote going around? "Think how dumb an average person is. Then realize half of them are even dumber than that."
Same thing here, really. About half a year or so we had a lot of, ahem, heated arguments around here whether "above average" means being good at the game.
