If you do, without knowing a bit more, you could be jumping to conclusions.Are you not able to make a reasonable assumption of the definition?
Every time I have seen similar discussions, each player comes up with its own definition, and most of them vary. Competition can be defined not only on specific features but also on audience, money access, more generally game theme, and a large etc of other dimensions.
Elite certainly has competition. Maybe not just the one that OP is thinking of, or very personally defining.
So before trying to jump to conclusions with a randomly chosen "definition" I prefer to understand better where the poster is coming from.
