POLL DESCRIPTION

What do you think of a player who "refuses to fight" and makes his opponent attack?

For instance, in some rules a player might deploy defensive terrain (i.e., a river that shields one corner of the playing field) and "hide" behind it, waiting for his opponent to attack.

fine with me

I have no problem with players who use a passive strategy. That's part of the game.

should be against the rules

Any rules which allow a player with a strictly passive strategy to win should be revised to fix the flaw.

should be against competition rules

Competition rules should penalize players with passive strategies.

it's historical

Some armies are only suited for the defensive. Therefore, passive strategy should be an option in historical gaming.

would never play him again

I refuse to play gamers who use a passive strategy. Gaming should be about battles, not the avoidance of battle.
