After every point I make I you agree you should continue reading. If f after a point you disagree with it you should make a post concerning that point. The point of a competition is to evaluate one's skill against others. Anything that would reduce the representation of one’s skill would be something that diminishes the effectiveness of the competition. A random factor that can sway the competition in great favor to the less skilled contestant reduces the representation of skill in the competition, which in turn defeats the point of a competition. Crits are a random factor. Crits can greatly sway the competition due to the fact that they can kill multiple people in one shot as opposed to three or more shots. Crits lessen the representation of skill and reduce the effectiveness of the competition, therefore breaking the competition. This means that crits are broken. One of the chief reasons that Valve included crits is that they can sway the fight in favor of one contestant so much that a new player can defeat a skilled opponent, which in turn makes the new player enjoy the game and continue to play it.
