I have two questions, namely:

1. Who is your most feared opponent who you lose to the most?
2. What style of play do you dislike the most?

I will post my own experiences later.

Fear? what's that? :P I thrive on the challenge of a really tough game or opponent, however if I want to win a tournament, Pim is not a guy I would like to meet in the final.

 

I don't really like the amount of time it takes to beat a shuffler

I ain't afraid of no man. I haven't played enough to have a Nemesis

I dislike any style that makes the game unfun, lotto-ers and shufflers

Since I only play with a wide open flag(no bombs around it), I fear anybody with a remaining scout. 

 

Not a fan of shufflers.

Maxroelofs ... he is champion in knowing how to make my buffer time run out. 3 losses in a row 3x due to buffer time running out.

Lucky lottoers

If you don't know where you go ... you have a lot of chance to arrive elsewhere ...

Fear is the mind killer ! Have no fear play loose. Back to question - shufflers/ non attacking players. The Greeks : )

Could you be more specific about the Greeks? I ve heard many players saying that the Greeks play too aggressively.

I think it's a common belief that Greek players are aggressive and bold. In my experience that seems to be true. For me, I know of no Greek shufflers! lol.

Having said that, the game's still very dependent upon the skill of the opponent, naturally. I've been taken apart by more skilled Greeks than I care to remember.

There is not a particular 'Greek style' of play that i have noticed  , the Greek players have a variety of playstyles like any other nation .

they actually have 3 specific styles in my experience, and I think it just depends on personality. Some of them (not many and not the well known ones) shuffle, some play aggressive like Overlord, Spyros & Gkaros (and many more) I believe these are the more carefree and reckless personalities ;) they enjoy the use of colonels and majors a lot more than dutch for example. Then some play a good defensive bluff game like Sekertziss, Karaiskakis, Aris1970 and more who like luits sergs and majors.

 

Though I find this is quite common with most countries, and I believe it is just the passive people and the reckless, the Greeks seem to be the most common to have 1 of the 2 last styles quite accentuated.
 

This is just from my observation, and others may have had other experiences :)

1)Out of curiosity, in which category would you put me?

2)So in your experience, SEKERTZISS plays defensively?!!  :huh:  :o 

In my experience I would say quite the opposite.

haha, depends on what you do to him ;)

 

I think you have not quite found your natural style yet, you are sort of in between two, but I think you want to be the aggressive type.
