Do you ever have to deal with that one player that is really good, but he lets it go to his head and he brags about it all the time. Or maybe there's that guy that has the one army from hell, he's always beating everybody and he refuses to play the army any other way. Do you have any amusing or frustrating stories about them. No offense to those of you out there that do this.
If a tree falls in the woods and there's no one 'round to hear it is it still my fault.
One guy that's at the GW I normally go to is always bragging about his "unbeaten 1,000 point HE army". He is definitely the most 'un-fun' player I have ever played against. He's just plain rude (this from an orc ), a rules tyrant and when you disagree on his mediocre rules knowledge he just becomes loud and angry to boot. He does the silliest little reforms to his silver helms - which are in fact illegal moves the way that he does them - to get them into prime charge positions and then he comes at you full pelt. Needless to say, my goblins (at that time) were beaten by the strange smelling pointy eared freaks... although I would like to have another go with my 'Ardboyz!
The real kicker is that now everyone knows about him and he doesn't get anyone who wants to play against him!
The iron crowned is getting closer,
Swings his hammer down on him,
Like a thunderstorm he's crushing,
Down the Noldor's proudest king.
Under my foot, so hopeless it seems.
You've troubled my day, now feel the pain.

If that happens have a judge come over and settle the dispute

"THAT I.G. GUY WITH THAT OVERDEVELOPED TRIGGER FINGER"
I don't see why anybody should change a winning army and its style. Nobody makes an army list before they leave home in order to lose. It is rather the opponent's problem, to change their list and tactics in order to beat them.
You called?Do you ever have to deal with that one player that is really good, but he lets it go to his head and he brags about it all the time. Or maybe there's that guy that has the one army from hell, he's always beating everybody and he refuses to play the army any other way. Do you have any amusing or frustrating stories about them.

But I refuse to change army 'cause i need to get used to it before the tourney. Yeah, that's why.
the only thing you ever have to do with someone like that is beat them...by any means possible. Obviously this isnt your style, and its not really the point of the game but if they care about nothing other than winning, let them taste defeat heh.
And if he says 'ohh you're just a powergamer' just tell him...yeah thats what all the people who lose say...he'll get over himself eventually
Never judge someone until you've walked a mile in their shoes...by that time they'll be a mile away, and have no shoes
Im not a cocky player but i love to play khorne and its gung hoe for me. And orks are even better. And i wont lie i dont play power at all. Im what u call last minute gamer.....ill wait till i leave my house to go and game and just throw together what sounds good for the day. I have had my ups and downs with this new strategy. And its just fun to get there and be like what was i thinking.....and remember its fun to loose to sometime.....cause i mean u cant win everything.
Cause the world we know dont beat to just one drum, what might be right for you might not be right for some, you take the bad you take te good and there you have the facts of life......sit ubi sit...good boy
Well those harles are pretty tough. Thier high Inisative are what gets my boyz everytime :realmad: btw yes i have faced these kinds of people and it was kinda fun playing them b/c they really push your army skills and tactics to the limit. Altough every little rule ends up as an argument and if you lose these battles it really hits hard. I've never faced anybody who has NEVER lost though. Even i was a BIG powergamer and lost a few matches.
What is dis signature nonsence?! dem stupid human zoggers are always trien to confuze us.
I've never met any powergamers playing 40K, but a local powergamer pretty much drove me out of playing Mechwarrior: Age of Destruction. They argued over every rule, insisted that I measure every measurment every time, even if I was shooting at something I had shot last time and neither unit had moved. They also accused my dice of being loaded when I started kicking their butt, but the rules arbitrator decided they were fine.
But I hate playing powergamers, win or lose. It's just not fun.
Burn the land and boil the sea. You can't take the sky from me.

I am not a fan of power gamers or rules lawyers as they are not fun to play against. My friend gets new armies and just come up with the most bent combinations he can find, this is fine in a competitive game as I do the same myself but for a fun game it removes the fun element. His ogre kingdoms is a prime example of powergaming, the cool bit is though once he loses he will go into weeks of analysis as to what went wrong
Another of my friends is the ultimate rules lawyer, without being that clued up about rules though. He will shout and get irate if he thinks you have done something wrong and when you point out it is fine he shouts louder. Then he will do something like measure a charge from the tips of the lances of his knights rather than from the base, most infuriating.
