The game has me curious. How will it compare to Gigantic? How will the pay scale be 1-5 years down the line? Very important things to know.
Compared to a full on arena shooter yea the skill ceiling for aim is pretty low. Played with plenty of people over the years who sink thousands of hours into competitive CS 1.6 / CS:GO who still manage to stink it up big time when you put them into those guy kind games, especially Quake Live. They tend to be clueless as to how to handle the LG and keep the accuracy at 40% vs players who aren't moving in straight lines.
Know a few hackers too that had horrible track records when playing legit in arena shooters that went on to competing in CS:GO leagues and doing quite well. Their ol Joe aim isn't as much of a hindrance when you're not expected to land more than two shots.
