Must have hit a soft spot there, eh?
I've played enough games like Dota and CS to know that APB is most definitely not as easy as you make it out to be. Why don't you go ahead and try to play against actual good players, you will just how the slightest tactical slip up will cost you a mission. The skill ceiling for APB is extremely high due to people spending multiple thousands of hours in this game, just like with any other shooter this automatically puts the skill ceiling high. But what am I expecting from a R90 silver? Sure as hell I can't expect you to figure that out by yourself.
I am pretty sure my 5000+ hours has exposed me to "good" players, allowed me to progress above rank 90, and have achieved gold threat. You haven't hit a "soft spot," you're just wrong.
Explain to me how you playing "enough games" like DOTA and CS, makes your opinion valid as fact? APB is a shooter. Play any game for 1000s of hours and you're going to be good at it. The issue is you're killing the game with your mindset. You're making excuses for bad players. In all shoot games like APB, you're going to have good players and bad players. No amount of protecting them is going to help their lack of skill.
Everyone regardless of hours is going to hit their skill peak. There will be "the best player" all the way down to "the worst player" and every in between.
It isn't a fact, as you like to state it, that APB requires more hours or more skill or more whatever else compared to any other shooter game. Some will catch on quick, some won't. If you've played "enough games" as you claim to have this superior opinion, then I think you'd agree in all the games you've played there are really high skill level players and other players that are terrible despite having time spent in game.
