BASH GENERAL?S REPORT.

Not much to tell you this week. We didn?t quite make it with eight mobiles left after extra time. Many players said afterwards that their score was down on the evening which indicates there was a great deal of fleeing. It was lively enough with at least ten players at the start, including a suicidal Dogtantian who attacked just anything and anybody.

I only noticed Dogtanian attacking one person, and he beat a necromancer with a protector I think.

Oreo's warrior got in a few fights though

Fleeing is for wimps.
Have a nice day.

Fleeing is for wimps but so is gaining points. But when you flee you lose points. How do you explain this paradox?

They are not mutually exclusive.

Wimps only flee when they fear that they are going to die. When they flee they lose points but save themselves to fight another day.

If, on the other hand, the fleer stayed and fought to the death they would lose all of their points and be back at zero.

Their moral integrity and self worth as a person of courage would be intact. However, they would lose all of their points and as points are for wimps, zero points necessarily confers upon the player 'non wimp' status.

The point is : DO NOT FLEE....DIE LIKE A MAN (OR WOMAN) AND LOSE ALL OF YOUR POINTS.

If you stay and win you gain points, but I defy anyone to fight all of the way to Wiz without fleeing once.

It can't be done. Fleeing is for wimps and points are for wimps.

Simple really.

( I reserve the right to contradict myself at any stage in this conversation).

Thank you for that lucid explanation. I am glad I did not suggest that all Wizzes were wimps. But then what have you to lose?

All Wizzes are beyond reproach.
