Meta = Most Efficient Tactics Available.

So if we both use the most efficient tactics available, how does my opponent or me always lose?
That's a 50% chance of victory. That isn't "most".

Doesn't that mean that the losing team clearly did not use the Most Efficient Tactics Available, and are anti-meta?

Because one of the teams is better.

Games can be lost due to a number of things.
just because you follow the meta doesn't mean you will always win, or does it mean your team will play better.

heck it also depends on who was playing who and how team fights where.

To be honest, I had no idea it was an acronym, either.

To answer the OP: Player skill is hugely conditional. Just because you follow the meta doesn't ensure victory, it just means that you have a better chance of winning... which doesn't really account for much when the other team is following the same format.

So now we're throwing in intelligence and ability.
So you are then suggesting that training your mind and becoming better before you play that game is not efficient, which is exactly what would cause the [0:-2] effect (efficiency and availability) to continue to be correct?

If two entities combat using the same tools, whoever is better with them will win. Most Efficient does not mean autowin if you use the tool poorly.

This. If you pit veterans vs newbies, the veterans are obviously going to win. Just because they're using the "most efficient tactics available" doesn't mean it's an instant win.

Not necessarily; it would depend on how "efficient" is defined - whether it be based upon the user's maximum potential, or if it should be judged by an overall level.
People think it's the former. It's not.
