Nkenobisome strangers could beat you cause they don't like the way your hair looks.

some respect there hu?[/QUOTE]WTF does that have anything to do with what we are talking about? Your twisting the analogy into something that doesn't even apply to this but I think I see what you are trying to say... Yes, some people are jerks but the point is, without you showing your opponent the same common courtesy they are showing you, YOU are the jerk on the street.[QUOTE=Bretski]well yeah, at teh end of a foory game or cricket game i shake my opponents hands, its real sport, JA, it doesnt matter, theres no contact.

I know most of my colleagues online better than I know alot of people in real life. Just because you aren't physically near the person that doesn't mean you are not in contact with them.

Look fellas, this is what you make of it. The bottom line is this is the way that the majority of the players online feel, they are kind enough to crouch/bow/say "Good Luck" as a courtesy to you, if you do not show them that courtesy back then chances are everyone in that room is going to think you're a jagoff. You can look at this however you like but NOTHING is going to change that - end of story.

As for wrestling, that's fake.

I meant like the real kind. Like what goes on in olympics and in college and high school.

You also are not respected by that person if you dont say gf or bow, and if you want to be in a clan, ya aint.

I bow once to each player the first time I fight them. Other than that I just give time.

ScipioI meant like the real kind. Like what goes on in olympics and in college and high school.[/QUOTE]There's not enough people interested in real wrestling for there to be that kind of atmosphere. That's why they come up with fake wrestling, no ones interested in the real kind. Think about it, when was the last time you got together with a group of buddies to watch a real wrestling match on TV or even heard about anyone doing that (do they even have that aside from the olympics?)? It just doesn't happen because there's not enough people interested in it. Now if there were more people interested in it, then it probably would happen. It's like that with any 1v1 sport like tennis, boxing, etc; etc.
ScipioYou also are not respected by that person if you dont say gf or bow, and if you want to be in a clan, ya aint.[/QUOTE]Well personally, I don't get upset when people don't bow or say GF; Now if they start attacking me while I'm trying to do so, that's a different story. I think this is something that I should go over in the Lightsaber Tactics Guide.[QUOTE=Nkenobi]I was talking about Bretski's stranger on the street, you don't shake there hands but there is respect. not always
The whole "stranger on the street" is a terrible analogy to use because it totally doesn't apply to this at all. You walking past someone on the street is no where near the same thing as playing a game with someone. Walking next to a person on the street is having damn near no contact with that person whatsoever where playing a game with someone you do.[QUOTE=NiteStryker]Ok, i was just curious. I dont bow as in crouch, but i do nod my head and say the whole gf thing...

It's the same thing. Like I said before, even if you do not bow, I personally do not take that as a form of disrespect but if you attack someone while they are trying to show you respect, that's totally different.

Personally, I have never seen any of this as "respect", I just see it as good sportsmanship.
