Onyx 3 may very well be the hardest workers in the game. Once you get Diamond you don’t feel like there’s much to prove but your skill will still being the victories in. An Onyx 3 is doing everything in their power to make that leap into Diamond.
Once you hit Onyx 3 it’s time to realize it’s not a Gnasher only game. That’s what separates an Onyx 3 from getting to Diamond. The sweat is real.
Also, depends on your definition of better. Are they really better or is the scoreboard your point of reference? A higher score doesn’t always imply more skillful. My group has Diamonds and Onyx and the Diamond isn’t always up top due to less captures and other things. That doesn’t mean they’re not better players though.
