Title is supposed to be: How good is an average AE player at Evo?
I had posted this a different forum, but I see there is a forum just for Evo so it would probably be more appropriate here. Sorry for double posting.
I have a question for those of you that sometimes go to large tournaments like Evo. What would you say is the average AE player that attends these tournaments based on pp? This would be someone who might typically win 2 matches and lose 2 matches to get eliminated. I understand that playing online isn’t exactly the same as playing in person due to lag, but it seems to roughly translate. For example, I’ve seen very good players like Marn or Mike Ross play online and as expected, they win most of their online matches. I’ve heard it mentioned that most of the players that actually attend these tournaments are not very good, but it was stated by someone who is national/world class level so I am not sure exactly what that means. So what kind of player is a typical “average” player at one of these tournaments? Would it be someone with 1000pp or would it be someone with 2000 or 3000 pp or something in between? I understand there are world class players there and maybe that even noobs might enter. But what is the average player (someone who might place 750th out of 1500 players).
I am looking for responses from people who have actually attended and played in very large tournaments like Evo (no thanks if you are just guessing).
