You Got Owned: Series Overview
When we look at it, there are a few places where losing a game originates, the winner and the loser. Yeah, this is obvious, I know. But basically a game ends because someone plays better or at the very least plays less badly. A game can be won and a game can be lost. We will look at why these things happen and how to insure that we learn from our mistakes. This is something I am learning a lot about right now as I learn the Sanguinary Guard list.
The important lesson in any case where we lose is that we learn from our mistakes and try our best not to repeat them. Many a good player will tell you, the best lessons are learned from failure. I totally agree. Rarely do I sit down and think, man I learned so much, when I stomp an opponent into the ground.
These articles will take us through the very important process of analyzing a game in the aftermath and learning what can be gained from a loss. I hope you will stick with me and add any comments or ideas along the way.
To centralize access to the articles, I will provide links here for easy perusal.
