I have a piece that I bought several years ago when my morals were much more set in stone, or so I thought. The title is, "SHould I or SHouldn't I,?" and its a classic depiction of the devil on one shoulder and the angel on the other. Its a beautiful piece and I think about it now because Ive always thought that someone who doesnt return for the second day of a tournament after going 0-3, to have a telling character flaw. To not return because there is no chance at winning the tournament would in fact portray selfish motives. I am in that position now after getting wrecked all day long over at the conflict gt. I still havent made up my mind about what to do because on one hand, I want to support the community,the tournament, play a couple of games and not be a douche. On the other hand, there is no one there that means as much to me as my wife and child. If I go and play two more games of Warhammer 40K, my wife will be sitting home alone for a 12 day stretch. After writing that sentence, I HAVE made up my mind!
Its time to get my priorities straight and an unwinnable tournament and 40K in general are no longer at the top. I know its hypocritical because if I had gone 3-0, I would go and try to win. Im looking at it like this, play two games of 40K, or spend a day with my best friend and infant son!
Its a done and done deal!
