I was just joking, as was the other guy from what I can tell. Still, it's nice to see someone put thought into what they say, and I agree that most pros are still way above even globals, let alone silvers. The disparity in skill in each rank alone is huge. For example, I'd consider myself decent considering I'm only MG2 (mostly inactive though), I've received compliments from a global saying that I have much better mechanical skill than him (whether that's true remains to be seen), and I know another guy, also global who is just plain boosted. I feel like the ranking system needs to be reworked, but then again there's a lot of stuff I want Valve to do which they probably never will.
