Multiplayer Shooting games, game of skill or purely luck ?

Hey guys, I play a lot of multiplayer shooting games mostly Call Of Duty. I have discovered that i always have good and bad days. Like, sometimes i get really good stats and win every match and sometimes i get really bad Kill/Death ratios and spreads and never win a game. Do you think it is purely about luck? Where it spawns you? Are you in the right place at the right time? I think ping affects the game a lot. When I have bad ping I always come out of matches with bad Kill Death ratios. Of course, reflexes play a huge role in multiplayer shooting games. But sometimes you just can't do anything when it spawns you near and enemy and once you start moving they kill you instantly. I have experienced that many times... I don't really know if these games are only about skills. Even a pro player gets killed by campers and spawnkillers and etc... What do you think?

I think it's a mix skill and luck. Because you need luck to get kills. And don't forget that in a FPS if you're lucky that means that the other player is unlucky and vice-versa.

Ping is a very big factor.Get a ping of over 150 and you are screwed.I promise you.Well at least happens to me.Mostly its skill though and sometimes even the weapons you don :) But sometimes you get the OMFGBBQ kill and sometimes you get the 5 kill streak not ironsighted on like hardcore which always happens to me.Happens all the the time.Definitely skill tho

Skill Luck. You don't get those lucky kills constantly and with skill, the lucky kill is every kill.
