What? this is about match fixing, not about cheating.

This is also the same thing that kicked Brood War so hard in the face it never came back.

Yeah thats super easy i dare you to spend one week 16 hours a day playing CS:GO or lol or smite or starcraft or comand and conquer and see how you feel about sitting at your computer again. If professional games were easy everyone would try

Being skilled at your game, or practicing the game for many hours, doesn't actually make the "job" any more difficult or any more in line with the average person's soul crushing labor/menial tasks to profit ratios.

You can be on your feet all day, balancing 5 platters on each arm, getting spat at by entitled patrons for $7.25 and hour, or $80 an hour clicking some buttons on your ergonomic mouse, playing a game that you already play for fun in your spare time, but getting paid for it because you are doing it "professionally".

At least professional "real" sports players actually perform some impressive physical feats and have to put a lot of very not fun training and exercise into it to achieve those goals. Not that they deserve the money they get either, doing literally nothing for society other than inspiring bar fights, stadium riots, and unrealistic expectations among children.


In other words, if you worked in garbage disposal really enjoy putting together puzzles in your spare time, and someone offered you $1000 to put a puzzle together on TV, would it suddenly become an incredibly difficult task? Would you pass that offer up and keep doing your job tossing people's trash into a truck instead?

Example: take a plat who find the game easy and make them face a masters. Not so easy anymore. Take a low gm and make them vs code S. Not so easy anymore.

That's where my statement came from. No hard feelings?

PFFFF. I got trough the SP so SC2 is easy.

To be fair, I've plaid a lot of SC2 online (without macros) and always lost. The pace these guys are playing on is crazy. I can barely get a few reapers out there while I'm already being over run. Remembering (not to mention using) macros is an hell of a job. No wonder Koreans do that as a living.

I think therein lies the problem.

Westerners do this sort of thing as a hobby, entertainment.
Asains tend to do it as a way of life, a job.

Too often do the two clash when it comes to online play because the Dev's of the games don't try to seperate the two, I personally like to enjoy my games and to play with like-minded people. I hate being thrown into matches with people who do have no life but to play this one game, kinda ruins the 'fun' aspect.
They do play on a whole other level to the rest of us but I'm sure spending my time as a mechanic I can out-pee them in that field ten-times over. Anyone doing anything repetitivly can, nothing special about that.

That's one of the big complaints about MOBAs, it is truly about repetition and time spent in game. Obviously repetition is a major part in improving in FPS as well, but talent is a major factor in a way it's not with MOBAs. One thing that arena shooters teach you, most gamers do not have world class hand eye coordination, including many of the folks in competitive scenes.
