    Yes, seriously …

    Sun Tzu III.18 ” Hence the saying: If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”

    That does require one to study and listen to one’s enemies (and even the useful idiots who support them). Especially when they claim to use techniques we use … such as gaming.
