    Obviously
    Also vice versa, there's been boys better than girls too XD

    I think the level between professional male and female players are the same tbh, just you see more of the males

    Well in terms of success, then the females are way behind. the hightest ranking female is 288th.

    Literally no boy I have ever met on a game has criticised me for being a girl.

    I'm pretty sure most people don't act this way, petty feminist girls always find something to complain about in nothing.
    So every other girl must have experienced it similarly?

    Ofc some girls are better than some boys because there are millions of players. More boys play video games, so hardly suprising, but there will be some very good female players. The top e-sports teams are still male dominated. Top female is 288th. There are professional female players though.
    What on Earth are you even talking about?

    288th? Pull that number of a hat? What game? Are there even rankings in any game that go to 288?

    would those be ones where you have some sort of "ELO" based ranking? Usually for individuals rather than teams?

    I don't think you can say one way or the other "Oh, boys are better" or "Oh, girls are better" all boys and girls are separate individuals and have their own skills and interests.

    I'm a girl who plays video games. So what?

    There are boys I know on my course who want to go into fashion publishing - again, so what?

    We shouldn't have to be defined by gender stereotypes.

    Isn't it funny? These games come with mute and block features for a reason, these girls who cry over being called "gamer girls" probably don't block these guys for the extra attention they give them :L

    Quite a few female LoL streamers constantly cry on stream over being called a girl or being bad at the game, when all they do is point a webcam at their cleavage and ask for donations
    You don't have a first clue at the psychology behind those streamers, do you?

    I don't think it's a case of defining the genders to just one side, but I'm just saying, games have traditionally been mainly dominated by males and in recent years, more girls have started playing them and so it's going to be compared but not stereotyping but just noticing how girls can be better than boys in an area that it hasn't always been common.

    I've never been criticised by a guy for playing games. It usually girls that do the criticising. They say you only play games to impress guys or that you aren't a true gamer unless you play famous modern games like COD, Fallout. Guys have either been neutral or happy that I play games and treat me like one of the guys - they don't take it easy on me, especially not on UT2004 :laugh:
    Quality! I need to find my copy of that and play it again.

    Though tbh I preferred the maps on the original.
