It must suck when your new employer sends out a press release misspelling your name as "haring" in the headline, doesnt it? @2GDgaming

you make it sound like you lured me into something but I said this place is elitist to begin with.
if esr accepts an idea then everyone else outside will too for sure.
because we are elitist pricks :D
You shouldn't always take peoples reasoning for things at face value, people look for any reason to justify their opinion and when that person is incredibly inexperienced or ignorant they'll blame the most obvious thing available to them (In this case, getting beat hard).
You only need to look at the justifications made by racists to realise this.
Most people don't mind losing or being terrible if they are having fun (Do you think you're special or something?), but if there's one group of people who this could apply to most of all it'd be PC multiplayer gamers. Sure they get angry and annoyed, but they always come back for more.
I had plenty of quitters who told me otherwise.
The period I am talking about starts from before cs with q1 standard and qw, spanning to q2 and q3.
even the rts players didint stand much of a chance even though they were extremely familiar with the competetive nature of games already (sc).
I had several successes of course, not all were failures but still many just did not have the patience to get beyond the first few steps of the learning curve.
the results were the same for all games regarding new players.
