Ok as some background I used to play fanatically in 6th Edition, played a bit in 7th Edition, and just really got back in for 8th Edition.
I'm not sure if it's nostalgia or me growing older, but it's like sportsmanship is in the gutter these days. People are more rules layer like, willing to fudge things in their favor, and in some cases are being down right dicks.
Like I was just playing a fantasy game in a Games Workshop store against a Chaos Warrior player. Part way into the game two people (store regulars) come by and start trashing him by going "Hey are you going to loose again?" and "Oooh you're doing pretty bad". Normally I would think this was ribbing between friends, but he clearly was feeling hurt by this.
Anyways the game comes to the end and he won. He played a better game and I was about to shake his hand. Then my victorious opponent starts going "Yeah they all thought I was going to loose but you couldn't kill ONE unit of Chaos Warriors!".
"Ok yeah I'm a bit rusty, but yeah you did a great job."
"You couldn't kill ONE unit man, not one unit."
"Great well good game."
"You just killed my dogs and they are only worth 40 pts each! I got your general and everything."
Like is this how people play the game these days?
