How do you define "Skill" - what factors form that definition in your own mind?

 

There it is ...

The ability to do something well; expertise.
 
FYI  There are plenty of online dictionaries that are a better source for this type of stuff than this forum, should you have similar questions in the future. Glad I could be of assistance.

I'd define skill as damage output. Doing more damage to enemies means you're using better map positioning, hitting weakspots more, surviving longer, etc. Higher damage output directly influences wins. 

 

As for how much damage per game you need to be considered "skilled", that's gonna vary from person to person.

I would define skill as something a player has that makes them preform better in comparison to another player. Similar to how someone would list their "skills" in a resume, they would be things that you have learned or achieved through your experiences. 

 

Skills in this game could include;

-Map knowledge

-Calling experience

-Common sense

-Weakspots/component locations

-Common knowledge of tanks (reload time, pen, dpm, ect.)

-Players ability/potential 

 

It takes time to achieve skill, its not something everyone gets right away. Sometimes, it takes players months or even years to develop skills in a specific area.

 Learning to use your team-mates, who are probably lame sheep anyway, as meat shields while racking up your credits of course! :P

Actual situational awareness. Keeping track of whats going on all around you instead of just what you're looking at. If you can do that, the rest will work out.

In this game skill is defined by the amount of money in your wallet.

That is some skewed, contemptuous definition of skill. Must have read it from some tabloid, and believed it from the start

Skill is the composite of abilities in the game that help your team win.

Nice, vague, answer ...

 

Care to expound on that, Mister Rommel?

 

What are those "composite abilities"?
