    Default DunningKruger effect

    Well, we all know players like this.

    Dunning?Kruger effect - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    The DunningKruger effect is a cognitive bias in which unskilled people make poor decisions and reach erroneous conclusions, but their incompetence denies them the metacognitive ability to appreciate their mistakes.

    Yeah I've heard of this before. Im pretty sure that what happens is the unskilled therefore suffer from illusory superiority, rating their ability as above average, much higher than it actually is, while the highly skilled underrate their own abilities, suffering from illusory inferiority.
