    I think the attitudes have to do with age I love playing the game I love winning also but can accept losing it makes you more determined to improve and become the best you can be. Crying on a message board and making enemies is not very smart or mature. Leave the Beef where it belongs on the Dinner Table.

    11-14 players do not play against 15+ players so comparing them is apples and oranges.

    Moss haven't you ever played age-modified?

    However using the rating system at all is like comparing apples with bricks!

    Seems my words have fallen on deaf ears I meant the difference between 15-17 and 18+ with some more sense than the cocky kids whos parents still buy them everything

    All the real tournaments are Age Separated. Local tourneys and maybe Cities are really the only ones Age-Modefied. ;p Overall, the 15+ is a harder division and more difficult to earn points in, in most areas. Let us have our fun with the ratings, spoil sport. :frown:

    theres a difference between having fun and causing static with other players or their parents or their friends

    Yeah Chris, no joke! These guys are spoilsports because you, me, and Martin are MATHEMATICALLY the top three players in the WORLD!

    Btw, comparing the 11-14 and 15+ isn't like apples and's more like comparing a large-sized diet coke (11-14) to a medium-sized regular coke (15+). Who the heck drinks DIET Coke anyways? I know I don't =/

    This is for nopoke:::

    Eew. Diet Coke. =/ Thats almost as unholy as Diet Dr. Pepper. :nonono:

    I'd like to give props to mathematics, for without them I would not be (mathematically) the BEST player in the world. So take this as a lesson kids, stay in school and learn math. Then you can ring up change with the best of them, like Martin! :thumb:

    [EDIT]Win/Loss/Tie record- 107/40/2 (the ties were IDs early in the season at FRLG pre-releases)[/EDIT]

    Actually, of the people I know, usually only the little kids drink the non-diet stuff. It's a metabolism thing. I know I switched over to diet or other low cal/fat options for most beverages back in gradeschool...
  14. Ewwwwwww! A thread about Diet stuff? Oh how the might have fallen! HARD!

    diet coke is for people over 30, or teenagers with low self esteem. What kinda weirdo drinks diet drinks, HONESTLY?

    Are you KIDDING ME? Dude, I don't know if you KNOW, but I am a millionaire. I wore a freaking Rolex to worlds, and I got an even better one for this years. What do you drive? I drive a 2002 Dodge Viper GTS. Wheres my Milkshake and quarterpounder sir?

    Good thing you won a trip bud, it be a shame to have your Geo Metro break down on the way to SD from Alabama.

    Actually, I don't drive. Don't like to. :tongue: If I wanted to I could drive our Eclipse Spider convertable, heck if I know what year it is. =/ Thats nothing compared to a Dodge Viper mind you, but its not bad. So, if you'll kindly look back a page, I didn't start it, I just thought it was funny. ;p But, on the other hand, I don't automatically assume someone is stinkin' rich. Need a new best friend? ;D

    [EDIT] And in answer to your question. Yes, I am kidding you. o_o I don't even know if I've made a serious post since the beginning of this thread. :D[/EDIT]

    I'm joking too. In reality I am a lonely man. Sometimes, I take a bath with my money to make me feel better. So here is the final conclusions:

    1. Money
    2. Diet Coke
    3. Bill Cosby

    On to the next topic!

    Getting back to the original intentions of this topic, cockyness does not belong in PTCG, or any game for that matter. You may be using the most awesome, most expensive deck in the world. You may be a master strategist. You may have all the latest gaming gear. But if you play with a cocky attitude that discourages new players from participating, how are you doing your game any justice? That's the same as saying "I'm #1 because I've scared away all the competition with my ego."

    Its rather strange the things I've noticed. The younger kids (11 and under usually) play with a certain degree of respect for their opponents. Huge fusses are seldom thrown over losses, nor are egos inflated from victories.

    But then you hit that age group of 12-15, and the attitudes and egos set in thick. After that undelightful little gap, most (not all) players start to settle down and become respectful players again, though obviously with a much greater level of skill.
