frequently players with peanut sized brains will make the argument that "3s has a higher skill cap than rbgs" whereas if they understood what a "skill cap" even refers to they would come to the realization that this is impossible

rbgs will always be both more competitive and stimulating for smarter players, those who are willing to apply knowledge of game mechanics to changes in the environment aka people who can think quickly in more than one dimension will come out on top.

let us for example imagine a situation in which two mice are placed in a box, and that they have to battle to the death. Clearly, the more physically capable, bloodthirsty mouse would come out on top and skill wouldn't be a factor [this is an analogy for playing a better comp, for all you arena people reading this].

The only measure of skill that is left in WoW is how much money you have to buy IPs.

There is an rbg team on ragnaros thats above 2400

in arena NONE of them ever reached 1900

:confused: :confused:

For real tho, the skill cap ~might~ be high(er), but the skill floor is so so low, that most players just instantly think it's ridiculously easy to be successful.

Hehe I've not played real RBG for a long time, but it seems like a possible great description of the reallity of RBG.
