They're kind of like chambers, but harder. Everyone gets lucky chambers now and then, but there is still skill in doing them intentionally. Kicks are the same way, some successful kicks are lucky, but others were planned and skillful.
In theory we could do huge player numbers far over 500 players per server...  As such we will surely keep our promise to deliver you the 500 players per server.

We will probably go (far) over it, but that's for later.

Up block kicking is like life insurance. You're still screwed if you do it most of the time though.

I'd say kicks are more skill than luck since you need to time it and at what direction your opponent is going to walk into.
Working on headers in NW is like working on formula 1 2016 engines for 2017.

Basically this, but on top of that I notice kicks often don't actually hit me but they still connect and stun me, meaning they have aspects of luck but they are also a skill.
I won some things, I came 2nd and 3rd in lots of things, I guess I did some other shit too........ I'm also an FSE legend, probably most commonly described as a cunt. If the shit I do doesn't make sense in your head, well fuck you because it makes sense in mine.

Which i did, against known and reputed player, some of them considered legend, such as, Mandarin, Ledger, Tiberias, Herishey, Hokej, Troister, Axiom, Evanovic, Stark, Eddie, Jammo, Bagins, Freddie, Python. I didn't had a good relationship with most of them, but i congratulate them for what they did, and i had pleasure facing them.

I use kicks pretty (/prob too) often and I'd say it's 70% timing and 30% just luck. But once you know when to kick it is ridiculously powerful, with a sword especially.

1. Skill = If I kick someone
2. Luck = If the enemy luckily dodge

skill, but poking or stabbing someone to stun them followed by a kick and stab is not that hard
