As someone who has played similar MMOs I can tell you that my skill in one MMO usually transitions to another due to knowing how to set up my interface, not use the S key, and have a general idea of how to maximize efficiency due to doing it on other games.

Someone that is rank one in WoW will find it much easier to be successful here than someone that was not that high rated.

What would make you even possibly thing that skill in one game will not transition to another game where the only difference is graphics, tooltips, and different map lay outs? Will someone do worse in BF3 than MW3 because the map looks different?

People on these forums, seems like the Average IQ is just dropping.
Chief, competitive e-sport players have, for the most part, very similar skill sets; taking the direct example, SWTOR is mechanically very similar to WoW*, and as such, one might expect a top level WoW player to have a pretty solid handle on SWTOR.

Furthermore, the key to competitive success is far more often the players mindset, and not the use of actual mechanics. When you look at a players success in one game and take the actual mechanics out of the picture and focus on mindset, you're left with the conclusion that said player has a universal leg-up on 'regular' players in any similar game that player plays - like going to SWTOR from WoW.

*WoW is not technically an e-sport, but neither is SWTOR. The argument should apply the same regardless.

What you guys are saying is if i am the best NBA 2k12 player in the world, im gonna be one of the best NFL madden players. Sorry it does not work that way. You have to work to get a name or your self in this game.

Prove your skills in this game. In the PvP Guild i am in, we almost turn down people who boast about their skills in other games without them saying why they will be good in this game.
This game plays exactly the same as those games. You're wrong and your guild is terrible.
