    This seems like the geekiest version of the tap or go to sleep argument imaginable.  Grinding out the extra time does not make you a bigger man any more than refusing to tap out does.

    Of all the things people would find to complain about my play, this was not one I could have ever imagined. 
    Thank you for the entertaining thread.

    We're in violent agreement. My issue is with those with attitude issues. 
    My son also went for the kill, even when I was trying to teach compassion (poor opponent that 3-harded his Dash the wrong way off the board... My son realized that one he should probably have allowed a take back, on the way home). 
    My concern is for all those with bruised feelings cause they came to win and got crushed. Some lash out, some don't. Either way, changing their perspective to focus on fun might be best for them.

    Unpopular opinion time I guess. I go to a tournament to win. I follow the rules and play the game in a polite manner. If an opponent doesn't have fun for whatever reason, not my problem. My list wasn't fun to play against? Not my problem. I beat them too bad or too fast? Not my problem. Something in their list didn't work as expected? Not my problem. They made a big mistake and I stuck to the rules instead of letting them do something against the rules? Not my problem.
    If someone has a bad time because I was mean, insulting, or deceitful, then yes that's on me. Otherwise, sorry you didn't enjoy a competitive environment.
    If I get paired against a 7 year old, I'm going to play against them the same way I will anyone. Win and get as many points as possible.
     
    Stop telling people "it's just a game of plastic space ships, have fun". Every activity has their casual level all the way up to competitive. Want to just have fun driving? There's go carts. Want to be competitive? Join a league. Want to be super competitive? Go to NASCAR, but don't expect Kyle Busch to take mercy on you just because you're a rookie.

    TLDR: if you're playing against a 7 year old, prioritize their experience over yours. And maybe just do that all the time.

    You cannot rush through a phase to deprive your opponent of it.

    If the player says they're thinking about cloaking, then I dont care if you set every dial - you're just PRE-planning.

    I’m going to try that as an excuse on my wife when I pre-order four new paint scheme ones.  If you never hear from me again you know why...

    12 = Squadron.  Anything less, and you are incomplete.

    No issue here. The A Wing’s most substantive canon appearances are through the Phoenix Squadron run on Rebels, 21 episodes.

    no, we only get good SOS data because @Brunas's crack commando team invades BCP and extracts all the data before they can install

    That anyone would feel the need to bring a firearm to an X-Wing tournament is truly surreal to me. As a TO, I wouldn't expect a ban to even be necessary to prevent this, but I would cheerfully enforce one if need be.
    A weapon may make you feel safer, but it makes everyone else feel less so, which isn't something I would want in any of my events.
