Word play. You vaguely said you did your business differently in non-rated matches. Anyone with half a brain can ascertain what that really means.I didn't say I wasn't trying, you did.
I didn't say I wasn't trying as hard, that was also you.
I didn't say I was tired, shocker, that was you again.
I did say that effort and results of said effort are two different things. Then I gave you a real world example, which you chose to ignore, just like you ignore everything else that doesn't support your obstinate position on this topic.
You gave the analogy with running the first mile faster than the second. You played multiple matches in a span of a few days. Geez, I was just spelling out your veiled excuses.
