View Full Version : To Play If You Know It Will Be No Fun?

I have a dilema. There is an event coming up I've played in each year which I have become entirely and totally unhappy with which involves local corporations competing, I being this team's go to guy in the past, besides Spiderman that is. I felt this year would be different though because the venue had changed, the issues over a sucky CB having to play with for one, etc. etc etc.

Here's the meat of my question though. Is it wrong to just insist I am not playing in any event which I have such unhappines over? I quit leagues because I simply lost the fun in it, and I have been happier ever since. I've quit playing certain crappy people too and that has been a good decision. So, it prompted me to come here and ask whether anyone else just decides to "not go there" in events you have a pre conceived, personal unfun mentality.

Maybe there's an aspect of just sucking it up and playing for some personal benefit, but I usually play as badly as my attitude ahead of time predicts. Thoughts? sid

IMHO, you should make the decision to play or not and stick by it until you change your mind. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/grin.gif

Seriously, it is definitely your decision.

My philosophy for myself about those things I'm really not happy about participating in ---- I decide whether or not it's important for me to attend. If the answer is yes then I suck it up and go. If the answer is no then I take a pass.
