All the pleasure you get from winning comes from knowing someone else is suffering?

to be honest, what makes a 1v1 or team game fun for me at least, is the "hold factor" the fact your holding under incredible pressure, or when the game is actualy balanced between two players, and it drags on forever in a dual to the death. This hapens to me in starcraft.

tbh spring is getting redundant, i enjoyed the hard factor of xta and i still prefered its gameplay (at least the one of a couple versions ago).

anyhow, BA 1v1 is nice, but tbh its getting a bit boring, the fact that people dont play it to often doesnt help.

And dont say just cause you play 4 1v1s per 5 days is good.
1v1s should be played in series of 20 games, these days i only feel like playing 1 game per match then its over the excitement ends and blah.....

even if i win, it doesnt give as mutch excitement as a starcraft win does. that i say for sure

Well, starcraft is especially fun to win because the games are ranked. Perhaps if the ladder got more use people would play 1v1 more.

Knowing I played well? Enjoying the game itself? Personally I dont play 1v1 much because I prefer the teamwork side of things aswell.

The one thing I can categorically state I dont pleasure myself over, is knowing that someone far away is slightly depressed because I just beat them at a free online game.

lol, i agree... when enemy gives lame excuses, thats when it feels good to win =D

best of all excuses: "i wasnt playing seriously" (saying this after very serious looking playing and getting annoyed of small losses here and there... yeah right, he wasnt playing seriously... then huge ragefest after the game XD)

Excuses often given after a lose(with various small alteration):

1)Drunk
2)Stoned
3)Sick
4)Not playing seriously
5)I played real bad(as oppose to "we both played good but you just played better")
6)you were lucky

Any others?

lol yeah forgot "you got lucky", i actually heard this with the "not playing seriously" game as well =D

making excuse of being drunk or stoned is a fail, you dont care about winning or losing in those states of minds...

7) i g2g (at the moment the enemy is getting assraped hard)

Personally I find the "HAH IN YOUR FACE!!!11" stuff demotivates me from playing 1v1. Sure it is fun to win, but it is also fun to just immediately launch the next game, have another go.

I am with Scifi tho: It is only really fun if you had to fight like hell in order to get the win, stomping an inferior opponent is not rewarding.

If I end up losing, after 45+ minutes of crazy intense 1v1, I generally enjoy myself almost as much. For me it is the GG more than the win.

1v1s where you get pushed are the best for me, but not ones where you get pushed but they still end like 95% of 1v1s (so he micros his storms *slightly* better or gets a peewee into my wind gens 3 seconds before I can kill it)

tbh, the best 1v1s I've played are those with comebacks. where it looks like all is lost yet against the odds I've managed to turn it around

Obviously the best games are versus an opponent that is around your level...
I wasnt even thinking about stomping noobs or something, thats jsut lame.

I also dont like talking a lot after a game...the best is to do another game instead(ready the f**k up or get out)...

A lot of the times you play a 1v1 or 2v2 and than it takes like 5-10 minutes just to start another...
Thats is the ultimate fail...If you lost you wanna go go go for a rematch ffs...

Another annoying thing:people who dont afking self-d when its 100% clear the game is lost!!
