Also I'm 29 not 17
That's fine - it was just a toss out of my age - 50. A reference, to make a point.You may lack the APM and reflexes of someone younger and u may still be skilled, but to say that you are just as skilled as someone who can react quicker than you can has more to do with your ego than anything else.
It's not my ego so much as just saying that I don't think that you are inherently better for a circumstantial fact that is out of my control.
Your reflexes are granted to you by virtue of a younger age. Trust me, they'll get slower. You are not using intelligence, knowledge, or more experience to be faster. It's just something you have, so to claim credit on that basis, imo, is the real ego.
Plenty of people my age, younger and older are both slower and faster than me...your argument has no bearing. No one is claiming credit of skill based on age. You're defaulting to age because age affects reaction time. By your definition a paraplegic can potentially have the same skill level of someone such as yourself. His ability to react is hindered to no fault of his own.
As extreme an example as it is, it's a perfect example because your logic makes absolutely no sense. I thought my sports analogy was enough, but it seems you can't put your ego aside for a moment and admit that regardless of your age, there are people who excel at certain things than others...
Another analogy, typing and WPM...you wouldn't hire a 77 yr old male such as my father who types at about 10 wpm to be a secretary or anything that involves multitasking. His age, which is out of his control, may directly affect his abilities and in fact does. But by your definition, he's just as capable and skilled as a 30 yr old female who types 100 wpm. Again your argument makes absolutely no sense.
edit: we are sooooooo off topic so just to get back into it...
If you don't like getting stomped by premades, just play with friends. Problem solved :)
Or blizzard could just make oqueue baseline, hire Tiny to code it, and BAM problem solved.
