It has nothing to do with being mystical. It has to do with accurately describing your ability and not wasting other peoples time.
dood, if u gonna play ppl on spec then this is the price u pay

in general, ppl r poor evaluators o their own abilities. i am sure there are plenty o things u do where others would describe ur estimation of ur talents as similarly incorrect

u either play ppl who self rate n accept u are gonna get some lopsided matches, or u only play computer rated ppl. but whining that ppl self rate unrealistically is like whining that the sky is blue
