Is it possible you lost simply because the other guy was better? It seems nobody loses to skill anymore.
I saw this comment on the Starcraft 2 forums. The original poster posted a wall of text about the shortcomings of his race in light of his recent defeats and the discussion takes off about whether he’s right or whether he’s just a whiny kid who needs to L2P.
Then this guys comes in and with a simple comment he offers an even simpler solution. Could it be possible that he was beaten in a fair duel because the other player was better?
Of course it’s possible you say! In fact it’s pretty likely I hear you say!
Yet, for all of my time spent in raids, in battlegrounds and just playing games and MMOs, the “I lost because I simply wasn’t up to the task” is probably the reason the least often invoked.
I don’t have much to add here but just remind everyone that the next time we’re about to say we failed because they did X or Y to our class, we need to stop a moment and think about what we could have done to succeed.
