If you are ready for some college level reading about the nature of 40k then I have the article series for you! Danny Internets over at Bald and Screaming has put together a beautiful primer about all the components surrounding competitive play. The reading at times can be a little dense, so read not skim as you may miss some important points Danny is trying to make.

Here are the links to the articles so far:

The False Dichotomy
The Competitive Gamer
The Six-Fold Path
Lucky You!

I suggest at the very least read “The False Dichotomy” it does a great job of explaining the differences between competitive players.

Questions for Comment:

  1. How have you dealt with WAAC players?
  2. Is it possible to be the Greek Ideal gamer?
  3. How often do you see luck used as an excuse for bad play?
