Brother, this is not theory. It is mathematical comparison. One thing is bigger than another. Timber
is not as good as 100% of 5* cards commonly used in ELO
. He is on par with good 2 and 3 star cards. Mathematically.
How can I make this clear?
Let's pretend that you work for me.
Let's pretend that for some WACKY reason, I offer you your choice of a 50k a year salary and a 100k a year salary. Same responsibilities, obligations, etc -- just two possible salaries, no strings attached.
What you are doing is picking 50k over 100k, and encouraging others to do the same.
That's quite fine -- it's your choice, and maybe you can live perfectly well off the 50, maybe you invest that money intelligently and grow it to an extent that taking 50k extra salary per year barely matters, so... Maybe it "works" for you... But the indisputable fact is that 100 is MORE. Implying anything else is just absurd.
This is what you are doing right now.
