I’m having a discussion with my bros, starting from this topic: The neverending story uhuhu uhuhu uhuhu
My friend noticed a surprising fact that some of the tournament player have stayed at the 20k~15k rank for almost 10 years!
I’m not saying I’m above expectable jokes, but after they died out we finally tried to find a serious reason for “how that is possible”.
As an educator and trying to avoid the “It’s the limit of some people” answer. One reason I can think of is that “Because of the environment. They probably never had a chance to meet stronger players nor have access to better go resources.”
This bring me to another group of people who for a long time never have access to stronger players: the strongest players themselves.
Now they do though.
Is there any information regarding the growth of pro players post-AI era? Have there been significant growth now that they have a stronger player readily available 24/7 in their bedroom?
(My researching ability definitely doesn’t get any stronger despite having the Philosopher’s Stone readily available 24/7 in my pocket )
