You told us that Countering a Counterspell is an "exploit" and "cheating" and not RAW as another example of why we're all wrong on our reading of reactions and these specific examples. You asked us to ask Sage Advice even though you're the only one arguing your side of it.I will challenge this. Even though you cant cast spells, for Counter-spell, you only need to point. Please make a video of you trying to out point your friend when you when you see him attempting it to point at you while you're attempting to do something else. I can tell you it's a physical impossibility, but try and prove me wrong without rigging thr experiment.
When I produce a sage advice that explicitly proves your position incorrect on your extra example, that you can, in fact, counterspell a counterspell, your counter-argument is to resort to real-world reaction times and physical impossibilities?
Talk about moving goal-posts. You've jumped to an entirely different field with that.
Just because I can't do it, doesn't mean that characters in the D&D worlds suffused with magic can't do it.
Honestly, given that you're the only one arguing for your case, YOU should be the one with Sage Advices or quotes from texts that support your position instead of us all giving you the texts and such. Especially since you seem inclined to ignore them when we do post them because... reasons? shrug
