Wow, you are REALLY not following this thread, or my posts.
I already said (more than once), it's fine to play any way you like. Have any tradition you like (even if I don't like it), I don't care.
What's not fine is to go ballistic on someone who doesn't know you require that kind of play and then hateplay them after. If you have a tradition, either make sure everyone knows it and agrees to it before game start...or if you don't do that, don't go ballistic if they don't follow it (because they didn't know it).
>When your Quoting Zak, as your stable reason for ruining games, you should probably want to know about your sources.
And again you're not following this thread. I quoted Zak to make fun of the sentiment that "EVERYONE knows this tradition, therefore if you don't follow it, you're intentionally being an a-hole".
Yes, if Zak knew the tradition, everyone wanted to follow it, and Zak agreed to, then didn't follow it...then he was being an a-hole. If he knew everyone wanted it, but didn't agree to it, then he should have said so, and it was up to the host to decide to say "Zak, bow out of this game or be booted" before game start.
Bottom line: If there are extra rules being imposed by the host to re-define the gameplay, they should say so before game start, to make sure everyone knows about them. That will take care of players who either don't know, or don't agree.
A major point of this thread is about vets who go ballistic and hateplay newbies WHO DON'T EVEN KNOW your secret traditions, so there's no way they can follow them. That's being an a-hole, and driving away new players.
>I will disregard the other players and game style. Basically the stuff you find hilarious.
No. I never expressed that. I have always said every player should always be playing the game objective.
