CGar felt the need to say what we all are thinking......
So you will only play live now is your new excuse? Let me point out the painfully obvious. Nobody you play live with knows how to play Fortress Europe or even the game from the inkling you are giving me. PBEM is not fun?
Really, I wonder why so many people play that way...maybe it's so they can play with a wider group of people and LEARN.
Sure it's great to have friends over share a few drinks and provide munchies, see some friends you haven't seen in awhile, but ONLY play face to face? Sounds like a lame excuse to me.
You have "Yeah But" syndrome...... Yeah but I can't play now.... Yeah but I would play but only live...... Yeah but I would play but my cat ate my homework and i have to do it over again.
Sure you are still here, and still making excuses. I would have had/will respect for you if you just played the damn game and won or even lost. But you make lame excuses over and over again rather than just putting your money where your mouth is. Perhaps a new thread should be open so we can do a poll on what your new excuse will be.
There would be no gloating if you just vanished, we have seen your type before....over and over again. We would do a collective head shake and move on.
Indeed, there would be no gloating if you played and lost. This is a community of people who really enjoy this game, wins or losses are not personal or should not be at least. You often learn the most from your defeats. If you don't wish to elevate your game, then don't play, continue to make excuses, I am pretty sure we'll be able to live with your choice no matter what it is.
Put up or **** up....
