I just want to know how everyone thinks. This helps me on understanding how you feel.

Please pick the one that you desire most:

A ) Winning a game of NS without enjoying it.
B ) Losing a game of NS, but had fun.

notes: I know some of you consider winning=fun, but please avoid giving me that kind of answer. JUST PICK EITHER A OR B

Oh right, waffles are for the cool kids! So Lito no waffles for you.  :lol:

I play in a lot of scrim and matches, and I'm still going to take B over A any day. I just keep hoping for that day that I'll get to both have fun in a game, and win.  :p

I went with Choice B (since fun is the purpose of a game), but usually when my team wins it's fun too. Usually any game I play is fun, actually.

I went with B, for reasons I've explained before on the NS org forums. In a nutshell, I'd go for higher ping , on a different continent, and wrestle with a reserve slot for an ENJOYABLE game. Win or lose, as long as its satisfying I'm happy.

B, B, B, Definitely B.

Natural Selection, a game. Games are for fun, play! have fun! There have actually been many time when I've joined a game in the last minute or two and our team wins and I didn't even get to do anything. That sucks. It's really disappointing and annoying for you to be just starting when things are just finishing.

played a game last week on tanith where an NSPlayer went comm, built 2 armouries in the exits from marine start & then left. I went comm & we lasted over 1/2 an hour and managed to kill a hive and plenty of Fades & Onos (Isamil died twice as Onos  :D ). After the round ended, even though we got stormed by 3 hive Fades & Onos and got totally slaughtered I was still congratulating my marines because they did a brilliant job. Probably one of my most fun & most memorable experiences commanding in 3.0 even though we got utterly thrashed. As long as people don't give up the game is always fun and you never know what will happen.

So yeah I voted B.

Never say die.

Definitely B.  Think about all those crazy relocates you've done, and how they always get you killed and yet you enjoyed the game anyways.

The most memorable games are either the close epic ones, or the completely silly ones (relocate to ns_bast pit of dewm, hide and go seek)

I suppose they are two different kinds of fun.  Tension and challenge vs. absolute silliness.

Some of the best times include running away from onos with Bill yelling "OH GOD OH GOD" into the mic repeatedly.  Just leaves you laughing, and you never care when you die.

I think one of the background songs to the original UT was called "Foregone Conclusion". I was humming that while reading this thread.

I play to have fun, winning or losing badly is not fun, however, long and epic battles, where you feel that every action and every battle decides the game. Those are the games that are fun, if you win those, by just doing a bit more effort than the opponent team, it's even better.

this is the .44 Wand, the most powerful wand in the world, so did I fire 5 or 6 fireballs? Now you got to ask yourself one question pal, do I feel lucky? Well do ya punk?
