Not really. There are players who play to win, there are players who play to play. Many players are out there are unrelenting and will keep grinding out the match or they'll just keep going for winners. When you go up against good players you'll find less and less desperation and more players that are trying to place their actual game on you.
Ow well . I play to win above all else . I am ranked as a county player now ( I would not consider myself anything close to that level thought) . It,s a strange format thought ! It,s first to 4 games , I played 3 matches as I won my 2nd one 4-1 , 4-2 . Absolute garbage player I beat thought . He actually said to me , " I am not being funny mate I am a better player than you " if you call Bombing the ball into the bottom of the net and long a better player ? I did,nt win a game off the other 2 thought . Not very encouraged when I found out the first guy had 16 years playing experience on me thought .
