Tale of 5 brothers
Once upon a time, there was Jim, Joe, John, Tom, Sam. They were as different as possible. Only common is they all loved playing blood bowl.

- Jim was professional. He considered every single move. He fully engaged the game, so engaged, that he never spoke a single word to his opponnent.
- Joe was passionate dominator. He embraced the mental aspect of the game. He tried every single mind trick, and tried to talk the oppoenents into bad plays.
- John was excited about the game. He talked nicely during games, and made laughed on fun jokes. Winning was not his goal, but a fun sideeffect.
- Tom beleived he is the best, and bashed his opponents verbally after they made poor choices. He went mad when odds did not pan out as he imagined. He hated losing to bad luck, and oppponents he beleives inferior to him.
- Sam was curious, pointed on critical turns, and told his opponents that they have just arrived to a crossroad, and wonder which route they took. Sam even discussed strategic decisions after the game, after the smoke has been cleared.


Which one are you? Which one do you want to play against?


Inspired by the 5 different opponents behaviour, and Azures blog:

Well I doubt some who fall into some of the not so nice categories (The Tom's of this world) probably don't think they're Toms or are Toms all the time. Also I doubt you can pigeonhole most coaches into 1 bracket, like me!

I would say I'm:

50% Jim
20% Joe
25% John
0% Tom
5% Sam

You are right. The purpose was not to classify people with scientific metrics, but to highlight what people may look for in games.

And i, as an optimistic, cant help but hope that the realisation may help us to enjoy the game.
Posted by the_Sage on 2012-08-18 13:08:06
To me being excited about the game (John) can coexist with playing to win (Jim). Conversely, playing to win does not require absolute silence or mind games.

I enjoy fun chatting with opponents while playing to win. I don't do mind tricks much.

I know I'm not Tom, and I've met him a few times under different guises. When I think people make a clear mistake, I usually ask: do you mind if I give you some advice.

Oh and obviously I like playing vs John and Sam.
Posted by Wreckage on 2012-08-18 15:48:47
I'm going with the metrics..

37% Jim
16% Joe
4% John
6% Tom
37% Sam

So...i try to be Jim,but i always end up being a big John with like 1% of Tom...because,i never get upset with the other coaches but,dear Nuffle,i hate to lose a game because of bad luck.

Azure's blog is gone. Should we insult each other here?
Posted by bghandras on 2012-08-19 08:55:49
I cant control your actions, but the my intention with this blog was the contrary.
