The definition of High and Low TTK

I see a lot of inconsistency between how low and high ttk is used in the CTE forums. Some people, like marbleduck in his latest video, seem to think that high TTK = higher dps. But increasing the time to kill someone means is the opposite of higher dps, so shouldn't it be lower dps?

It should be "fast" TTK and "slow" TTK. "slow" TTK is obviously a low DPS.

"High" and "low" times are idioms, and thus gramatically incorrect in this context. "High time" could mean "greater than normal time" but that's not a typical construction in English.

wouldn't high ttk be a a high amount of time to kill, thus making it the same as a slow ttk? I don't see how that is grammatically correct. I would rather people be more consistent and use high=slow and low=fast.

Yes. High in that context means "greater than normal".
