Reminds me of the LARPing story, but this is much better.

It's about a WH40K tournament. Of course they both play to win, not to have fun. Serves them right.

Amongst the many reasons I recently completely gave up on 40K.

I went through a lull before, but came back to the game after a few years. This time I'm selling all my stuff on eBay.

I did manage to get a couple of really nice lenses out of it.

I gave up on WH40K because it was too expensive, I couldn't paint, I couldn't find places that sold them, I thought the rules were incredibly over-complicated, and I had no one to play with.

Video games were enough.

So a group of us decided to make up our own rules, but it didnt change the fact that it was expensive, painting, hard to find. etc.
So we made up our own game with lego instead. we all had plenty of that around

That was like 8 or 9 years ago mind you.

I played two games of WH40K at Dragon*Con in I think 2006 or 2007. Whatever. The guys I played with wanted to win so hard that it wasn't any fun, they just wanted a crushing victory, not to play the game. I never played again.

BrikWars is way more fun because you can roleplay the battle. I want to build a massive detailed city for roleplaying online here, ideally once a week for a couple hours we all get in mibbit and y'all tell me where to move your characters and stuff.

I've visited a couple of GW tourneys. What I saw there was more than enough to make me never, ever, want to participate. So, instead, I play WH40K with friends, casually. And I've had plenty of fun roleplaying with 40K battles in this way. We don't have massive armies, we proxy like a motherfucker, and our main goal is just to have fun. A friend and I even made up an RPG system which essentially used the 40K rules for combat.

We play a few other wargames too, collected over years and years, some out of print. Just depends on the mood.
