What are you talking about? It's not elitist, it's that some people know how to play the game, others are idiots. Most of the lower ranking players who have played hundreds of games yet remain cooks and cadets simply don't "get it" and as such, ruin a lot of the fun for the rest of us. Do you think it's luck that the high ranking players get that high?
Wow that is very elitist answer. I know some people who are low ranked and great players, and know higher ranked players who really suck at the game. Rank means nothing, I have seen people be brigs one day and cooks the next, so are they really bad at the game or did they want to lower their rank? Also i have seen a someone who plays with less skill then 99.9% of the people on the site, and yet they learned how to play 1 type of map with certain settings and got up to brig, and yet now that they need to play new settings their score has been in a freefall. So is the one player who really isnt a good player better then the person with a low score who is normally very good?
