Over all I agree. Of course, I think it's a bit natural to want the units in MY army to perform a little better on the table top, but it's quite seldom that I face off against a list I truly have no chance against. I'm a firm believer in list tailoring by both players, so there are no surprises and nobody just gets tabled because they had no idea they would be facing x, y, and z. That can only really happen among a group of gamers/friends who play against each other frequently. Good sportsmanship on both sides, and a true desire for your opponent (who is ideally a friend) to have a good time playing, too. There is nothing to win other than bragging rights in a friendly game, and even when I lose there is usually a goal such as killing the enemy warlord, taking out the Riptides, or whatever.
