Pro: Having skill that surpasses the average capacity.

That is the definition of being pro. But is it possible to be pro?

If you have skill that surpasses the average capacity, you are better than other mice. But then again, surely, there are mice who are better than you. This could go infinitely, but is there truly a proest?

Supposedly Thejkb is the best mouse in TFM. But suppose for example, you beat him in a map. Are you proer than him? You can say it is only a fluke, luck. But the same idea could be applied to Thejkb.
What if he is just lucky all the time? Does that make him a noob?

Also, there is a factor of internet provider. What if there is a player who would be deemed pro, but never wins due to a laggy internet. Does that make them noob?

And that brings me to another point. Is the idea of being pro democratic? Does others calling you pro, make you pro? Perhaps you are better than them in stats, but you could be noob to other people. And does them calling you noob make you noob?

This leads me to believe that the true definition of proness lies in these factors:

LUCK
-Actions caused by others or the map that lead you to victory.

DEXTERITY
-Nimbleness with your hands can make you wall jump faster, be able to CJ and TA, etc.

WIT
-Being able to calculate how to complete a map and the fastest way to do it.


But in the end, opinion and standpoint rule over it.

This isn't a democracy, this is a dictatorship.

I didn't say it was a democracy.

And it's not a dictatorship either, because there is no clear winner and CAN be based on opinion. LMFAO.

I'm the only leader, therefore, I am the dictator.
(Not really, I just wanted to say what I did.)
LMFAO.
