derptextNever liked people who are obsessed about winning. I mean they just think about the winning so much, they are unable to enjoy the game.
There's a difference between an obsession with winning, and an obsession with competition. Would you call a professional-anyone, regardless of their profession, a bigoted try-hard? I sincerely hope not, as that particular mindset is just as bigoted.
I can use myself as an example. Back when I played vBrawl and most-every Brawl player on Wiichat was an inferior player, I almost-never selected the characters I play. Instead, I'd pick some strange character I've no idea how t' properly play (ohai craptain failcon) and derp about t' have more fun than an easy three-stock victory.
In regards t' Yugioh, I myself was a huge user of Billy Decks when not playin' in a tournament. I had the nickname Kaiba for the longest time since, even after Blue-Eyes themed decks became utterly useless, I kept on usin' 'em.
Worst lot are those people who only play against weak players and beginners, just so they get easy win. And then they gloat, as if winning a noob is something to brag about... Sad people.
I concur. People that intentionally play with players who don't stand a chance (specifically in an online environment) are the reason why games die out and gain an elitist-focused community after said game has been out for awhile. When playin' online multiplayer for anythin', I actually put it on my schedule to stomp the newbie-stompers and put the jerks in their place. Make 'em rage quit (through fair play, mind you) 'n all that. Once they leave the scrubs alone, I'm soon to follow.
I rather lose than win. Especially against newcomers.
-You see, by letting the newcomer to get a win, I will make him happy, and hooked to the game.
But if I beat him in his first games, then he will be discouraged, and might never play the game again.
Ya can't baby someone 'less they're a kid... and outside of lettin' the youngin's win, I disagree with that. A lot of players who freak out when they lose will still play a game regardless; case in point, bad CoD players. Many more players don't care if they lose, 'specially to some player with a million prestiges next t' their name. Newbies aren't entitled to victories when playin' against experts. Any newbies which don't realize this are either a self-entitled brat or an idiot.
There is nothing so satisfying as giving a good, but hard fought victory to a new player, in both card table, and in tabletop wargame. The newbie will glow for days!
I disagree. For me, there's nothin' like an amazing back-and-forth best of five that goes down t' the wire, regardless of the victor.
... We can't agree on much, can we?
