I play (PanO and Yu-jing) but my dice hate me. I usually lose.
Doesn't bother me in the slightest. If winning was important, I'd never have taken up the hobby. Winning is a bonus when and if it ever happens. I primarily play ttg to put my models on the table. I pick models based on how they look (rules are NEVER a consideration*). This has a downside. There are also very few models from any of the factions I like the look of (I can honestly say that every range has models I do not like. They also have at least one model I do (combine. They have 1 model I like, and it's a REM).
I've had some good moments in games (I need 2s to hit, he needs 15s. He rolls a 12, I crit) however, when it comes to ARO, my guys can't hit the side of a barn. PanO are supposed to be the best shots in the game (maybe their elites are, but the little order monkeys are crap at it).
I need new dice. The ones I use used to be my rpg dice - but I never used the d20s, they were for that *spits* D&D *spits* game (alongside the d4, d8, and d12 - d10s were used for several other rpgs I played - and liked - and so were the d6). I think my hate for that game was absorbed by the dice and concentrated - so the dice hate me back.
My tactics also suck. 7 years in the army should have taught me better, but as I spent 4 of them in a rear-echelon support role (Qstores) I don't know where I would have learned them.
*Except for those units with the "Religious" rule. I will NEVER field one. I despise ALL religions and their trappings, which rules out certain "key" or "auto includes" for PanO. It's a deeply ingrained bias and probably has a trigger event in my childhood (though not connected with a priest).
So, with my rather limited selection choices, why do I bother playing?
I grow tired of 40k (25 years and counting), Warmachine and Malifaux both have a cards and minis thing (is it a miniatures game or a card game?) that I don't like and Tomorrow's War is not yet out in book form (I do not lug my laptop to club meets, and I will not get an e-reader as I prefer to read a book than a pdf).
I don't DO fantasy games, and I gave up on "historicals" (including WW2) 30 years ago. SF is my genre of choice. There are precious few games that grabbed me the way the infinity game did (about as much as 40k did in the beginning).
So I play. Until I get bored of it, or get better. I have a high boredom threshold though. :D
Hey! Where'd ... Everybody ... go?
