Don't know how many years ago it was, but I stumbled into one of eliters Leagues. I first of all loved the thought of the competition, rather than just a game.
Then, in playing in those competitions/tourneys, I found that I enjoyed the conversations, both in lobby and at the table. I stuck around and in time investigated and found I enjoyed other eliters Leagues.
I've seen many changes across the years, most for the better I think, but I speak from the heart when I comment on the recent trend, of negative and IMO personal posts which are sooooo negative.
Did you forget why you play and compete in eliters?
Many of those posting I think should remember their positions in eliters. THINK; are you promoting your League, and your own stature, or simply alienating both yourself and your League.
Apart from the tourneys we can play in, we have a unique forum to post our thoughts in, ... lets not waste it by personal attacks and politics.
