Ive had this debate with many a people is luck a part of skill or skill a part of luck the one case i bring up is you need both like me running down shooting some one in the head through a box skill knowing where the guys head is luck hitting it. then i ran to grab a gun missed it ran back an when i went the way i wanted to i got 2 kills from good positioning but had i not missed the gun i would have been flanked from the side hard core and died any thoughts?

    In my experience there's no such thing as luck.


    I would not say that. There are times in my life where I've cheated death several times. One including sticking a metal wire in an outlet when I was little. >.>

    Luck is like Spraying and praying. I think it's based on skill mainly. A skilled player will overcome a lucky player.

    To quote fort minor - This is 10% luck, 20% skill, 15% concentrated power of will, 5% pleasure, 50% pain, and 100% reason to remember the name.

    I like that, it is partly skill, partly luck, some concentration needed, and a lot of the time it gets frustrating, and you get quite angry at your computer, and last but not least, all the times you get headshots and feel like shaking hands with your winky.

    Scientificully watching, what the hell would "Luck" be? Force? Yeah right.

    Luck is a part of skill or so do I believe.

    I need both for what I have to do tonight, Championships for 100 meter and 200 meter dash. I have the skill (speed) but people always need luck.

    Not really, it's just a word used to describe the unexpected pleasentries of something happening to go your way, without effort, that's luck, it's nothing to do with a force or entity, or being, or who / what you are. That's claptrap.

    We are talking about CSS, not your real life. And if someone is faster than you, that doesn't have to mean that he / she has luck.

    This song will answer your question, listen to the start of it.



    This is ten percent luck, twenty percent skill
    Fifteen percent concentrated power of will
    Five percent pleasure, fifty percent pain
    And a hundred percent reason to remember the name!

    Luck is a random occurrence that is not definite until after it has happened. So on that basis luck cannot possibly be a part of skill.

    If I blindfold myself and removed my sound and then got a kill that kill was by mere chance and no skill was involved, that kill was lucky.

    Luck is a part of skill, cause without skill u would not be able to survive.
    U cant just have straight luck, its impossible.

    Luck and skill are two completely different things. Luck is when you do something good but not on purpose. Skill is when you can do something every time on purpose. They have nothing to do with each other.

    Hmm.. i think it depends. Cause if you are really bad and you shoot someone by accident. It will be luck then. But if you are skilled you still have luck. But most of the people dont say it will be luck cause they will say that they are well skilled. Cause if you say its luck you say that you arent really that good. So people see luck then as their skill ^^

    Defination of skill= "The Learned ability to bring about predetermined results with maximum certainty, often with the minimum outlay of time or energy or both."

    defination of luck= "Luck can be defined as a chance happening, or as that which happens beyond a person's control."

    so you used your skill since you knew where he was but you were lucky that you killed him. if you sprayed the box there was a chance that some would hit.
