not a taunt just a new approach

so as competitive as i am i also enjoy friendly rivalry and swapping/stealing tips. I've even started reaching out to people on facebook if they only have one tg record i'm competing with but they're not really active members. I like to let people know i'm working to get their record, give them a heads up so they can start practicing and relearn the skills before i even beat them

In that light, i'd like to tell @onlyinajeep i've finally made it to level 10 on jumpman. i hope in a few weeks to be able to marathon it.

would love to chat about it with you, compete a little with you, and of course give you fair warning so that we'll both be at our peak at the same time.

    thats sean, since we get along i'm assuming thats meant nicely and not sarcastically. i actually really do mean it in the spirit of good sportsmanship. i know when someone doesnt play a game for a long they can forget their skills -- and in fact when i feel like being a bad sport i sometimes prupsoely wait to submit till a year later when i know the person lost their skills.

    so i really do mean this all well and i hope my wording reflects that

    I play so many games, there aren't many that I remember the intricacies for. I find it helps learning games (yet) again as I'm not going in blinkered and often find new nuances or alternate ways to interpret them.

    i do remember from magic a partial forget can help. sometimes you're so wrapped up on a flawed, or heck even not flawed but only part of the strategy that you're blinded to alot else. forgetting that one, albet it useful tangent, can free up your mind for other tangents. there definitely is a point where practice hurts and forgeting ( a little) can help. you're still worse the first day back than you were on the last day, but you're also in a position to learn more than before
