If you do learn twitch reflexes it is at a young age. You can point out all the other aspects and say it requires this and it requires that but at the end of the day watch a video of top level play CS, UT or especially older quake (fatality etc) and you'll see that sure those players know the map, they know respawn times and they know weapon timers and locations and how to get there from here quickest BUT it is what seperates twitch players from each other. You have that skill AND THEN you learn the rest, but you have to simply have been born with that. It's like oh i'm this super amazing soldier but I can't be in certain honor guards and elite military organizations because you have to be at least 6" and i'm 5' 11". That exists by the way. There is also for example height requirements to be a fighter pilot.
Twitch players have a skill that you can't gain, you either have it or you don't and it's very important for playing some games.
They are disliked because if you play an FPS at some point you will lose to someone who you outplayed simply because while after the second round impacted into the persons back they turned and headshotted you from 75 yards out almost before your third bullet hit. Now it is in every sport, the simple fact is you can be a great cornerback and yet here comes some wide reciever, you have him totally covered your all over him, ball is thrown and bam he leaps 10 feet into the air and one handed pulls down the toss. You did everything right but he beat you because you forgot to bring bionic legs. Pure athleticism that you can never match.
When you lose and there is nothing you could have done, no way your skills could ever reach that level even with all the practice in the world, your going to feel cheated.
