Winning isn't everything.
It's the only thing.

Congratulations on being successfully counter-trolled, in this case.
Though apart, forever connected.

Something tells me the counter-troll was unintentional :V
OK, I should probably say it (not that anyone cares as of now) but my original post was just something I posted to mess around. It's obvious to most anyone that in this community, winning isn't all that matters, so I thought that my post saying it was would not be taken seriously.
On another note, to all people highly anticipating Spyder vs EVA, my original sarcastic comment was not aimed towards that anyways.

Aren't recursive and contradictory arguments fun? Anyway...
The ultimate goal of a tournament is to win. EVERY player is supposed to try their best to win within the rules of the game. It's a test of skill, mettle, and overall fortitude. Every player should enter with the intention of crushing every opponent he meets.
That being said; Just because you don't win or know you have little chance of winning doesn't mean you shouldn't participate. One of the most important aspects of the tournament scene is exposure to high level play. With this, you can gauge your problems as a player and see where you need to evolve. You ALSO get to meet new players/play players you've never played before. The diversity and exposure (again) are a very good thing for leveling up your game so that someday you CAN win.
The catch here is: most people ENJOY challenging themselves, leveling up, meeting new and unique players/playstyles, and otherwise stepping out of their comfort zones. It's why most of us play. This is our brand of fun. We aren't supposed to sulk about a loss - we're supposed to DO something about about it (whether that be a salty runback or a FT10 challenge etc) although because of how much we invest - getting irritated (or salty) is literally part of the territory (who likes admitting they're shit tier compared to TKG? - I'M JUST TEASING, I SWEAR :P). You can't escape it if you want to get better but the important thing is what you decide to do about it.
In the end, ANY serious competitor in a tournament is:
- Playing to win
- Becoming better in as ways possible
- Having a blast doing it (ie: fun)
When you're eliminated from a tournament, you're not supposed to run off and whine about unfair this or unfair that (not pointing fingers, just saying in general), you're supposed to (wo)man up, figure out what went wrong and do something about it. That way, next time you're in the tournament longer and have a lot more "fun".
Oh, and finding someone who can kick your ass is a good thing - means you still got more meat to chow down on in terms of evolution.
Find me in the IRC and challenge me! I'd love to play against you!
Currently Playing: Persona 4 Arena
Just to add, every tournament I've ever entered be it Dissidia or something else, I've always made at least 1 friend and sparring buddy, even in this one although I didn't do very hot, haha.
So that alone was worth signing in for.

RDF: I don't think I can play at all today. You might need to end up with a free pass.
