    Poor Sports and their deserved spot

    I dunno about you guys, but i've lost all respect for poor sports. I play once a week at my local GW store on thursday night for vets night. There is a guy there that every time he plays, he doesn't roll well, and begins to freak out. He throws dice arround and sometimes even his models. He is probably the worst possible person to play in the world, but was the only opponent tonight. We played one and half rounds and he quit and started packing up...I've played him acouple times before but today tipped the scale for me.

    Basically, my point is, people who can't play the game without being reasonable to the fact that IT"S A FREAKING GAME, need to be brought outside behind the shed and old yeller'd. I honnestly think this game, as well as any other game for that matter, should ban players who act this way. It's not fun for anyone who is involved, specially your opponent. In my case as i said, no one else was there, he quit in round 2, and I end up going home pissed off that I didnt get to fully kick his ass.

    what u think

    It's his problem. You know who the guy is, just don't play him again. Eventually he'll get the message or just run out of opponents.

    I had an opponent who was a real nice guy, but when he had figures on the table, he would yell at anything he deemed to be a rules breach (despite the fact that he was often wrong >.<). In the end, I just stopped playing him, as did almost everyone else. When anyone forfeited the game due to it being no fun, he yelled some more, and would accuse them of being sore losers =/.

    Presently in my gaming group, whilst we swear and complain at bad dice rolls, it's mostly meant in fun, and we shake hands after the game and everything.

    This is the reason I use really big dice and say, "Just remember, every one of my models you hit with those pansy dice, I get to hit yours with my larger ones." usually keeps them from throwing around dice in a losing fit, because I'm so tough and everything.

    Now that my ego has been reasonably stroked, just ignore them. If nobody wants to play against a whiny guy, then he'll either quit or become less whiny. Of course with bratty kids, they eventually learn to stop being bratty.

    This topic has been done so many times before. Since I've been here, Its happened at least 20+ times. I really think one of these should be stickied or something.

    Eh, let people vent every few months. It's not like you're being forced to read them.

    ...or are you?

    Well, i want to win, but if i don't win, i don't start throwing a tantrum... Don't play 'em, and, if you're feeling confident enough, tell him why you don't play him. It'll make you feel better and hopely give him something to think about.
    Got a "good" rumour from a GW staffer? Forget about it, LO'ers know more than any random GW shop staffer.

    I'm a bit too relaxed for this to get to me much. I just laugh off their tantrums until they're quiet.

    Yeah I think that every gaming group has at least 1 person that always whines and pisses people off. In ours I avoid brandon like the plague.
