What "Defines" a Pro? Traits and Qualities?

Postby Liduso » Thu May 15, 2014 2:05 am

After getting back into the game after like a year (GOOD TO BE BACK GUYS! :D) I am very happy to say the multiplayer is extremely enjoyable! Fun times for the majority!
(unless you spam flop -> jump. plz nu)

But still, that's aside the point.

I feel like we've had threads similar to this in the past, but not sure if any of 'em would fit for this version what with the major mechanic of player titans skewing the prior ball game.

So yea, what do you guys think defines a pro player?
Do pros still even play?
Are there things a pro would/wouldn't say?

So far in my recent online escapades I've only met one such individual who'm others have actively vouched for as pro, some dude named "Aura".
Yet still, it got me thinking what really makes a pro these days.

Does damage output come into it? What if the player dies the moment a titan attacks?
Survivability? *You've all met the Eren that camps the wall/camps the roof and sits there for 30 minutes*
*BY THE WAY WE COULD REALLY USE A VOTEKICK FOR THESE GUYS HNNNG*
P-Titan killing? *Is that really anything more than luck for most*?
How about attitude? *I can't tell you how many times someone has tried to either "Roleplay" with me, as if each character determined my personality, to just pure arrogance, getting mad when other players saved em'/Killing "their titan"*.
Sometimes they have skills to back that up, but not often.

Whatt'da y'all think?
Also, is "Pro" more a community agreement or is it a lot simpler then that?

If a person were to have god-like accuracy (doing a 10 Traditional Cut streak),
they would be able to solo Forest 2/3 with minimal mistakes whatsoever,
which I think makes the player pro.

I consider a pro to be someone who can easily take down a titan and stay flexible in any difficulty. Survival/kill-rate are more important than damage.

There are a few major qualities that come readily to mind:

    High Kill/Death Ratio
    Consistently high damage
    Excellent control of 3DMG
    Ability to switch between going on a solo-killing rampage to assisting a teammate easily

I kinda doubt even Tailex can do that.

To me it's just someone who's good at something, it doesn't have to be a practical skill.

for me a pro is someone :
1- who have fun playing the game : yes it's fundamental for me anyways .
2- who can kill a normal , abberant , crawler without a big struggle.
3- who knows what he is going to do, not just flying hoping he would land a hit randomly on a titan.
4- good at the 3DMG , he doesn't have to be the dude that never crashes but good enough to keep a decent amount of speed.
5- fast judgements , in a tight situation he can manage himself , not panic and hide on a building , and can somehow elaborate strategies.
6- helps when needed and doesn't killsteal.
7- high survival rate ^^

for me that's what defines a pro player. he doesn't need to have all this but just having 4 of them is enough for me to consider him a pro player

For me a pro isn't someone who can stay 30minutes in the air killing all the titans he sees

My opinion join the one of Eters for all his list ^^

If you satisfy at least 4 of the listed, you are a pro in my book.
1. <removed>
2. Capable of handling a large group (6-10) of titans by themself without dying and requiring assistance.
3. Can equator cut or equivalent >80% successfully.
4. Can kill any titan on normal and hard difficulty.
5. Can clear normal Forest II solo with any finish time.
6. Capable of STRONG use of 3DMG; can navigate through the city and forest well.
7. Can achieve somewhat consistent high damage around 700 and above or approx 400+ aDpH.
8. Has strong scouting abilities (related to 6. and angling of the camera).
9. Some degree of air equator.
10. k/d of 30+.

Attitude isn't what truly defines a pro hence I didn't mention anything related to it.

I think pro is usually just a word for bragging in this game, but if I had to say, I would say it depends on the person. Since different people focus on different things. Though one thing that is the same for all in my book, is that you have to not brag about your skill level.

That's just not being a dick.
