    How come some players never get any better?

    View image

    I just lost a match with this guy in my team. I've obscured his name and detail links.
    What baffles me is that he's level 55, his only rank X god is Cupid...and yet he seems to always feed..really hard.
    The only 2 matches on the bottom of the list that aren't shown are 2 losses as Cupid, with 2/12 and 2/15 scores.

    I mean, he clearly played enough to get to level 55, and I remember the leveling isn't that super quick early on even if you do win tons, and with less worshippers from losses, it definitely a took a while to get Cupid to rank X...and yet...this is the result from every match.

    I can understand not being a god-tier, pardon the pun, Cerberus yet, but he has the same results every match, even when playing his main.

    Is he just.. not trying? Is he unable to get any better? Should he try a different god?
    It just baffles me that someone can play that much, especially as the same character over and over, and remain so...well..unskilled at it. I'd say it's just unlucky, but with this kind of consistency, I dunno about that.

    Not trying to flame or anything. Just curious. I myself have never really reached a skill ceiling, there's always room to grow, get better, and such.

    Maybe he isn't "truly" a level 55 with a rank X for Cupid? What I mean is, with the frequency of all the Double Experience/Worshiper events going on lately.... his skills and knowledge are probably closer to a level 25 player....in other words, the quality of players has dropped. A rank X God is no longer what it used to represent: someone who has demonstrated mastery over that said God.

    Maybe he is really Arena player? I mainly play Arena and I am not really good in other modes or don't queue at all unless friends online and we go premade, reason for this is random teammates report for literally everything where ur friends understand if ur not that good and tries to help you. Also I am fairly good with Morrigan diamond rank 6 stars yet sometimes I go 0/4 in first few min

    Thing you have to remember is that some players aren't even aware of how good or bad they are. By and large most will think they are awesome and blame their team instead of objectively looking at themselves. Also, bear in mind that incompetence is a real thing. And, by the sheer virtue of its definition, incompetent people are totally unaware of their competence.

    Variables in this matter are potato pc's, shite internet, casual "I'm here to have fun and I think its hilarious to dry hump walls" types, and people with the mechanical aptitude of lettuce.

    I blame participation awards. So many people nowadays are so use to getting something despite performance that when they do lose they never for a second think it is them.

    I was an arena player until I reached 800 hours in the game. I have 1,150 hours in the game at the moment. I went out of my comfort zone to try out other modes such as joust, clash, siege, etc. I gotta say, my skill level increased dramatically. I went from bottom fragging/feeding to carrying or doing well in general.

    Also, it looks like he doesn't have very many gods in his god pool to play as. Playing different gods also helps to increase your skill level.
