GT's are a mix really. You get people who do for the fun of it. A weekend out with 6 games against random and new gamers, and the ones who are there to try and win it.
But you also get the people like me, who are both... kinda.. I don't try to win them, but I do try to get into the final.. because it basically a free tourney
But I don't like to be hard about it, as I like to keep the fun in there too.
All in all, its worth trying the GT at least once.

It's a good chance to test your mettle against other gamers.
So yeah people will be pretty hard core about knowing the rules and having
hard hitting lists because wargaming is like war, it's more fun when your winning.

Heh, this I like. Mildly out of context for purposes of hilarity.
Although I doubt I will ever have enough painted models to go to a GT. I have been collecting Guard for about 11 years and dont even have a fully painted Platoon.
(To be fully painted I consider it to need to be all painted THE SAME, and I have a terrible propensity to change my mind over colour schemes)

Typically the few GT's that I have been to have a lot of players from varying ages, but most are between the wide gap of 20 and 40-50 ish and most of the younger kids there 13-15 are typically the children of the older players who are into the hobby as well.
It's a good mix of people and most of them are there to play the game and have fun, however as you advance you hit more and more of the power gamer types as is to be expected with any tournament environment for the most part.
I get more fun out of running campaigns then tournaments for the most part, however GT's and small tournaments are typically a great way to see new tactics and different ways of going about things, plus they are good opportunities to win stuff.
Just being in that atmosphere is an exciting prospect. Just plan to have fun. You cant lose that way,
