Oh really? If you're so confident, let's see a video of this happening. Actually, why don't you get me his phone number and call him to confirm this. Really. Skill is a vague term. Since we agree that chess is THE definition of strategy, I will refer to that. Chess has no effort on execution. It's a matter of picking up the piece and dropping it on a location. Does it take a pro to do this? What seperates a good from a bad player is CHOOSING WHERE to place the piece. Now in Starcraft, obviously it's important to choose the right counter such as using lurkers against marines, BUT the execution is more important, which would be the micro. And we all know how micro decides battles. You can press your random buttons, but I'll just spam my verticals and I'll win everytime. You have no basis on this "newb" vs. "pro" argument because you obviously aren't a pro and you haven't seen pros like Kageh actually lose to new players. There is no evidence to back your statements. Exactly. It's not how fast he pushes a button, but knowing which buttons to press at every situation that determines the winner in SC2.
