Bad loser

There Will Be Games

First thing you notice when entering this hobby, is that this is a social hobby, sure there are some solitary games but that's not the forté of this hobby. 

At the heart of the hobby lies the social interaction between the different players and that can significantly affect your experiences with games, the same game played with different game groups can result in vastly different experiences.

For me it's one of the great things of this hobby, you get pitted against other people (usually with better A.I. than is currently programmed in your video-games), you get to meet a diverse crowd of people and make some friends amongst them.

Surely this provides no shortage of annoying things to put up with, but as long as you're having fun you can overlook most of them.  However, there's somethings that I just don't like and will kill my experience and discourage me from playing that person again.

 I've discovered that a bad loser annoys me, this hobby is a social one that emphasizes the use of the mind not brute force, thus one would expect to play with gentlemen and grown up men but that's not always the case when:

-the player says he was unlucky, he would've beat you if that die roll had turned out differently, really?  I mean a game is full with decisions and a win can be pretty narrow at times, but trust me if you've played it differently from the beggining maybe the game would've been different and the score would have reflected it.  Having a bad roll can hurt but you're playing a game with dice so already knew from before that you'd have to accept the results of the dice.

-the player says you won because you got a card that granted you the win, really?  Well, unless some bizarre M:TG card that might or not exist, I don't think there's a card that really hands you a win, most of the time you have to make them work but please learn that sometimes no matter how well prepared you are life will throw you unexpected obstacles, it's ok if you complain the first time but if you're already an experienced player then don't complain, if it's such a ruiner for you then don't play the game anymore.

-they curse you, well most certainly this isn't what I came for, so just turn around and go before the punches start flying.

-the player lectures you and how you got lucky and won not because you were better, but because some error he made or something he missed.  Well, you can talk all you can but actions speak for themselves, so deal with it.

When playing please be nice and if you lose make sure you congratulate your fellow gamer as he just earned it, if you're bitter don't take it out on the guy, let some steam off and think of the mistakes you made and how you could've won, maybe next time you'll win and you'll appreciate playing a well mannered gamer.
