One further thing I'd like to add, is the issue of spectator etiquette.
I'd like to suggest to players who park up and watch others play, to please enjoy watching, but unless specifically asked to share knowledge, to refrain from providing endless comments and suggestions - in this hobby as with every other aspect of life, unsolicited advice is rarely appreciated and often irritating.

Hmmm... I can both agree and disagree with this. I like it when people come watch, chat etc, and occasionally remind me of rules I've forgotten, units I've not moved, etc.
On the other hand, there are many people who do the opposite, tell you 'oh, I wouldn't have done it like that', and just piss you off.
I think my point is that be careful before telling spectators off. If you're playing against someone like me, there's always going to be things I've forgotten. Having a mate there to remind me helps immensely. Losing your rag at someone for pointing out something is not cool, especially considering that, sportsmanship wise, you should have just done it yourself. Instead of, 'Muahaha, he just forgot to move that unit, now I can butcher them because of his ineptitude!' That's not cool. Just tell them.

Just read this thread and picked up a few things to keep in mind. So thank you.

The spectator thing I've seen at tournys and at a club game.

I have little experience in this game and I was playing a dude one time and he was smashing me and a guy came up n started to tell me I should do this and that and I was like oh yeah and then I looked at my opponent and he was not impressed and told him to leave the table. I realised then that to do what I had just been told would have wrecked the game and mood so I just carried on and ignored it. I remembered that advice though lol.

And at tournys most people walk up and laugh at me/ with me lol

The part about putting up a fight even when you've clearly lost I will keep in mind I remember my first tourny that one game I kinda just gave up n charged everything to its death and I could see the opponent was like oh yah that was fun lol
