Re: Is it true ? Stars = skill ?
Lay off the sauce, imo. Where did any of this come from?

In the sense of strategy, which can be used in real events or in gaming, suppressing your competitions strengths is a smart move, and thought of rather highly.
Actively, and philosophically, setting out to deny other HUMAN BEINGS (forget about freep or creep), the opportunity to enjoy something they pay for is really rather low.
Letting ones opponent get stronger wouldn't be a problem if they weren't already strong enough. There is a major impact in letting an already powerful opponent become even more powerful.
So your opponents in a game advance and get better. So what? All that means is that you will have to improve and get better yourself. Be that through grinding better gear (which incidentally creeps can do nothing to prevent), or simply becoming more skilled and experienced with reacting to different situations (which creeps can HELP you with). If you want the game to remain easy and all of your opponents to remain at the same difficulty level for all eternity, then I humbly suggest that MMO's are not for you.
I don't recall ever saying that, but I would be interested in seeing what the context of that statement was. I do recall seeing pibob say that, or something very similar, above. Maybe you mistook us for each other.
