    Does the style player uses most of the time determine how good they are?
    I.e. If they use a cbow and camp a choke point 70% of the time make him/her a lazy not so skilled player looking for easy kills
    Another example: if someone uses iso most of the time (like me) but does not camp a choke point a lot but instead is mostly in a building by the main road sniping (89% hit rate) make him/her a skilled sniper?

    So what style of playing is considered skillful?

    Getting kills = skill.

    I think a truly skilled player is one who can do very well with almost any weapon, whether it's OP or UP. That doesn't mean a nuke, just that you can beat Skullcrusher/Isolator/Model users in a firefight.

    @Majora_Jora is thus far the only skilled player. He never camps, uses guns like M16 and non-prestige arsenal. He is an amazing example.

    As for myself, I will play extremely aggressively, mostly because of rapid reaction speed. Otherwise, you can add me to the top 10 worst players.

    Also, the poll should be a little more varied in terms of playstyles. There's like 420 options of sniping.

    Maturity + getting kills = skill.

    like how 2 people say camping a choke point w/ ISO, moddel, skully is skillful, how 1 person says camping a choke point with a mini is skillful, and how 5 people say skully jumping is skillful...something is wrong here

    I do exactly the same thing. Yet I'm not at least a little skilled?
    I see how it is. :v

    But yeah, I agree (although I said it above)

    As long as you tried to get a good amount of kills with different guns, you have skill. You aren't always going to get the best game ever. You win some, you lose some.

    I think I can determine my ability to kill people from across the map a good example of my abilities. Nothing (in my opinion) is harder to do then headshoting someone from across the map. anyone can lay on the trigger while in a choke point but only a select few can land true sniper shots
    Sadly, I'm usually having to push the line at close range, making me an extremely effective mid-range quickscoper. But yes, those are the play styles that I see as the most "skillful"
    I don't like to play the "who's better then who" game though, so don't take anything personally

    Your playing style doesn't necessarily determine how good you are. What I think of skill is be able to use a spread of guns effectively and be a good long range sniper, sadly many maps force you to use close range and medium range guns instead of staying back and using snipers.

    It depends on what you classify a "good player". If you base it upon the amount of kills, then the play style will be one that wracks up a lot of kills, but is not always classified as "skillful". If the KDR, it would be a play style that revolves around caution and not being killed. The list could go on.

    A skilled player has never heard of the term "prestige gun" or "donor gun"
    @Majora_Jora

    A skilled player should also learn how to play tacticaly
    @meltingangel

    And finally a skilled player should hit their shots
    @jkzoom


    Also @TheParakeetLover supports crossbow camping choke points c:

    It really shouldn't. This is a discussion on our opinions, not a question

    I wound say long range sniping and hitting players a majority of the time. Due to a render bug, you can only see a player from a certain distance away. Any further, players become invisible.

    Skill can depend on things...I consider quickscoping a massive skill with iso.

    Wait...Am I following democracy or communism?
