    Default Are you a competitve or non-competitive player?

    So how many BFers here play competitively? (i.e. plays official tournaments including sanctioned local ones) and how many non-competitively?

    count me in the non-competitive column.

    Competitive all the way. It's my nature or something. I used to race kids home from school if we were both rollerblading or something and they wouldn't even know it.

    I am definitely a non-tournament player. However, when I play I do like to play seriously.

    I'm some what both but I'm more non-competitive. I do enter alot of tournaments and that's when I'm competitive. I worry about playing and having fun with friends more than I do training and winning therefore I'm more non

    Default ....

    I'd say competitively. Tho i'm hardly high ranked, and i'm pretty terrible when it comes to tournament play (tho i have DEFINITELY improved over the last season, which is awesome), i try to play in as many tournaments as possible, as long as they aren't ridiculously out of town (like nationals in vancouver this year). However, i'd like to think that by the end of summer training this year, i'll be at a decent enuf level to be able to say that i am of a competitive skill level also.

    Put me under the "competitive in a non-competitive way" column as well. I'm not good enough to play in competitive tourneys and my only tourney this year was Alberta Schools sanctioned tourney. I'm been really trying hard to improve my game and I've seen huge strides in myself since last year. Could be that I started learning this game far too late(in grade 9) and so any new skills would seem huge!! But when I play even in just friendly skirmishes during practice I still try to play it like I'm there to win.

    I wish I had some crazy clubs around me so I could train. Now that my season is over, I intend to do alot of cardio over the summer, and I'll be getting a membership up at Base Borden, and train with a few friends. Hopefully I can improve on my game. I'm really interested to see how much I can improve taking the game seriously for a while. Couldn't believe I was able to make OFSAA after 2 months of serious training
