The Spirit of the Game

10 Dec, 2017 19:18
Hi all

Now I will not wait since the discussion is continuing.

First of all, I'd like to say that I do not do anything to harm anyone. I am honest, I have never cheated, I respect you all dearly, even those who have low thoughts about me. I also always try to avoid meta-gaming.

I really enjoy the game, even though I'm a mediocre player.

I also would like to repeat that, yes, I made a small mistake by posting before the game had ended. But it is true that I did not expose any players and that I did not mention a specific game. I did not even reveal whether the game was on-going or not.

Anyway, here is my opinion:

In this game you can do whatever you want with your money.

My reasons for doing what I have done don't really matter. For the record, I can restate that I did what I did because I think it gives me a better chance to win. I agree - and have always agreed - with Mansete regarding the fact that it's better if everyone plays to win: There can be only one, and all my actions aim for this goal.

So, again: In this game you can do whatever you want with your money, and I always play to win.

I know that the game really pisses off some people, but that's because of its nature, not because of people like me.

I am truly sorry that this has developed into a mini-crisis, and hope that you will keep playing with us, LittleJC.

I am also sorry that all the nuances of your Spanish posts drown in GoogleTranslate, which means that I do not want to comment on your posts, z666, because there's a risk that I misinterpret them, and I surely do not want create a macro-crisis smile

My last comment, as usual, goes to my good friend, Mansete: Just like it is very easy to recognize me in the games - which gives me a permanent disadvantage - it is also easy to recognize you. And whenever I do recognize you, Mansete, I let you win (the only exception to my rule of always trying to win a game), because it would break my heart to see you leave http://condottierigame.net/machiavelli/ crying smile

No, in fact my last comment goes to LittleJC: I hope we're good!

Regards,

Oh, and by the way, what you said Mansete: “Giving all your money to another player… Is against the spirit of the game.” can perfectly in accordance with your idea of the spirit of the game since it can be done in order to create better chances for yourself. But I can tell you after the game why I did it and how I think it gives me better chances to win. And - also - we'll see if it worked!

You are right Crano. Sometimes is good for your options to give all your money to another player. But it is not common. Anyway, I don't know the details of these game.
Thanks for letting me win.

We are all mediocre compared to sheldon, so what does it matter?

I used reasonable arguments in your defense, do not worry about the “nuances”, crano.

Lo siento, pero no estoy por la labor de que me trolleen las partidas por mucho que su histórico sea impecable, publiquen mensajes privados, se desvelen identidades en juegos ocultos (que ahora resulta que es una regla “poco” importante, aunque sea regla ) y encima me lleve una bronca.

Cranocide, you said the problem it's mine. OK there is no problem, I have surrendered all my games and Im not going to play more here

Good luck everyone

JC por favor no hagas eso.
Es un ruego personal.
Necesitamos jugadores nuevos y buenos como tú.
No dejes que un malentendido te saque

Así que dejas el juego, en definitiva, porque un jugador le dio (demos por hecho que no era un préstamo, sino un regalo) dinero a otro para un soborno contra un tercero que estaba cerca de la victoria; agravado con el hecho de que colateralmente se te ha revelado la identidad de uno de los dos implicados.

La verdad es que con la decisión que has tomado te has ahorrado algo tiempo (no mucho) en la web, porque antes de llegar a la 8º partida ibas a verte involucrado en situaciones mucho más tensas y polémicas (por no decir dramáticas y absurdas) que la actuacion conjunta de 2 jugadores contra un tercero o el darte cuenta de que el unico jugador de la web que solo habla inglés no es otro que cranocide.

I think it is clear to everyone that i did not reveal your identity.

Anyway, sleep on it. I still hope you'll change your mind.

Vaya LittleJC, espero que reconsideres tu elección, si no es así, que sepas que en mi robótico corazoncito siempre habrá un hueco para ti en agradecimiento a esa herramienta tan chula que hiciste para ver los históricos de las partidas.

Sinceramente, este tipo de jugadores inmaduros y caprichosos siempre hacen lo mismo. Ya son unos cuantos en estos años. Yo no perdería el tiempo con su pataleta cuando no tiene la más mínima cOnsideración por la gente a la que dela colgada en otras partidas que nada tienen que ver con esto.
