Let’s discuss a serious problem. Every time after an offline game, there will always be fans who are watching or had watched Warcraft III say, "This game has been launched for more than ten years, why still are these old players winning the championship, is there no newcomer in Warcraft III? "

This is how I am thinking. If an old player has played for more than 10 years, and he still keeps practicing, training with the strength of professional players, continues to play in the tournaments. His strength will rise steadily, at least there will be no obvious regression.

Then, as a newcomer, if you can catch up or even surpass the old players within one year, two years, three years, four years, five years of training. Is this a sorrow of the game or the player?

We all know that RTS games are won in a complicated way. They must be driven by a series of factors such as strategies, operations, micro, etc. It takes many years for a newcomer to absorb so many things to fully understand the game.

In my opinion, if the old players don't retire or they aren't lazy, it is very difficult for the newcomers to surpass the old players in the singles tournament. This is the same as the running competition. When you only start to run after your opponent has ran 1000 meters. The only reason that you can surpass your opponent, is the man stops running, or even coming back.

So, I think that the audience’s standard for the newcomers is actually a bit too high…
