I need to cover my ass a little here. yes, I think that most casual players are 'bad players'. But I also thank that 99% of tournament players are 'bad players' and that makes them even worse because they are supposed to be playing for fun! In my last tourney I was playing off for a place in the Top-8 and my opponent was so bad that I didn`t even bother Hammering an Albino Troll when he tapped out to cast it because I knew he`d forget the Echo (he`d already forgotten 3 echos in the match). That`s terrible! I`ve just got a really high standard of play to which I will start saying you are a good player. And I`ve never seen a tourney player have a fit when they`ve lost, either, not even when they just threw $1,200 dollars away by tapping the wrong land in a GP semifinal. I think you can write a very good counterpoint article tot he one everybody is whingeing about that slags of casual players. You stereotype tourney players as obsesssive and nasty, which really is not true for the vast majority. Rather, we use our success at tournaments to travel the world with our mates from the tourney scene, drink beer in foreign countries and meet new friends from all over the world. For GP:Manchester my friend and I (who live in manchester) will be host to around a dozen players from Iceland to Japan.
