Me, I can think of one instance. The guy I refer to is a great guy IRL, one of the nicer people I know etc etc.
However, he has a bit of a competitive streak. Whilst this streak isn't usually that bad, he takes rules very seriously. No exceptions. Sports, he gets pissed at the ref if he makes a bad call (which has been me a couple of times), when people breach rules and so on.
This translated to the tabletop game as well. If ever there was a disagreement, he would scream his case at you (despite being about half a metre away), and it just got to the point where responding calmly did diddly. Most of us forfeited against him, because the game became no fun. Eventually, I explained to him before a game that said game would be the last I would play against him. I lost that game (due to luck- I swear!), but it didn't really matter.
Am I the only one who refuses to play someone else for whatever reason? Another question is am I the only one to say this to said person's face?
I've refused to play an opponent once as well. He is a good guy, but gets worked up if the rules or the game dont go his way, and may act..oddly.
He would create strange rules in the middle of the game as per the "spirit" of the unit. scouts scaling walls, tanks targeting ruins, etc. It was all rather frustrating, and while he took offense, I just declined games with him.
A great guy whom i now play against again but for a while he simply refused to add up his army lists saying he'd done it at home or its 'around 200pts for that unit'. One match i actually sat down and added up his list as he got it out (blood angels) and all in all it came to around 1850pts for a 1500pt match. I said id refuse to play him untill he started writing down his army lists. He does now and actually his list have become alot better thanks to actually taking note of what hes got (he sort of diddn't care before if half his army got swept away coz he still had his command squad which had his fav model, wup ti do).
I hear and I forget, I see and I remember, I do and I understand
Success is the ability to go from failure to failure without losing your enthusiasm.
No, Ive never refused a game before, but Ive come close. This girl (yes, I said girl) did what the one a couple above me said, she never wrote down her lists and she still expected everybody to be cool with it.
I played 1000 point a game with her before I started Guard. I had all my guys sitting off to the side of the table a few minutes before she had hers out and was arranging them into squads. I asked her how many points she had there and she answered "Im not sure." If Im lying, Im dying, and I aint dead yet.
I sat down and figured it up that she had a good 2000 points worth of goodies for my 1000 points to deal with.
Now, I ask to see her list in my hands before I agree to play. Which is pretty easy, since I usually help her with them now.
I find it ironic that those who have been forced to write dwn lists etc. have become better players because of it!
Well...after about 6 hopelessly sound defeats from my friend's Daemonhunter army I've politely asked him to play with Tau. (less avoiding playing with a person so much as playing against a certain army list) I don't frequent a gaming club so never really have any people I avoid specifically, always play at home.
I never turn down a challenge. Simple as that. No matter how wacky the opponent may get, or no matter how bad I know I'll lose.
I haven't had too many chances to play lately so i can't be too picky. But when I can be, I am.
My problem is kind of the opposite of some of the above. I know a few people who tend to forget their rules here and there, and its gotten to the point where I know their armies better than they do. I really don't like it when people are decietful and try to get away with bending the rules, but its equaly frustrating to play against people who simply don't know them.
I tend to have an awesomely bad streak of luck during my everyday life and this naturally translates onto the table top but there I can find it humorous that my 15 point marines are being killed by failed saves because of one very lucky ork slugga.
