If you are playing a ball, such as tennis, badminton etc. Do you like to attack or defend? Most of the time I like attacking. I like to win by this way rather than counting on my opponent's errors.

Hi youless! I would rather do the attacking than always be on the defense. When I play badminton, I enjoy it much doing the attack rather than trying to figure out what my opponent will do. I find being on the defense more exhausting. lol take care and have a great day! lovelts..faith

Fighting and defend both depend on situation. Sometimes when I am not right and someone fires over me then there is mood of fighting but when I am wrong then I have to treat defencive.

I always enjoy watching people attacking things and usually attacking people are the ones who are successful but never underestimate the defense because with a really good defense, the attacker can be frustrated and eventually crumble under pressure.

But it is hard to win by defense only.

When it comes to games played one on one i do play offensively.But when it comes to team play i like to be on the defensive side,you can still win games if you play defensively.

I do believe that the attack is the best defence. When I am playing table tennis or football I prefer to be attacking than defending. I am against defending when playing. I am in favour the English style of soccer. They always go on the attack whether they are losing or defending

Yes, I love chess. I play chess regularly on Zapak and other online sites. Most of the time I play attacking chess. But when we are attacking we should be very careful. Once we make a mistake and we will give the game away to the opponent.

It would depend on who is playing. If it is my children I tend to go a bit easier to give them a shot at winning. Or when I am at the school I let the children win many of the times. However I do win sometimes or make them real close so that it looks like it was a good competition. But if it was an adult, I am very competitive and would go on the attack as much as possible. LOL

Sure, we shall give in when we play it with our children. As their strength and skills are not our opponents. We shall let them win sometimes so that they will have more interests to play it.

H[i]i youless, I love attacking too but it's not applicable all the time...I mean I will consider my opponent. In the past, when I will play with badminton with friends, they are all good, so I don't attack all the time, will just try to make a lot of effort for them to miss the ball![/i] LOL!

I don't play tennis but I like defense over offense in the sports i watch. In American football, it is so important to have a good defense. The same is true with hockey.

I seldom watch American football, especially hockey. This sports is not popular here. Perhaps the playground is a big problem.

I usually do a combination of both. Every ball game is a game of strategy. In the event the opponent leaves himself or herself open, I will attack to gain a win. In the even the opponent is always attacking, I will try my best to defend for as long as I can, all the while hoping that the opponent will make a mistake for me to turn the game around. Just concentrating on one form of the game (be it attack or defend) is not going to be fun in the long run.

youless, I like to be methodical in my games here. Testing the opponent's weaknesses during the course of play and anticipating what is his/her next stroke. I would also like to be at the relentless retrieving end especially when I am behind. Working on the game and letting the opponent know that I am gaining is quite a feat and experience to see. Cheers.

youless, Well, you may be equally a worthy opponent too! Keen competition and giving one's friend a good fight would be enough to make it a good and enjoyable game. Winning isn't everything here at the end of the day. Besides a hard earned victory will be more exciting and memorable than a simple walkover case. Your thoughts. Cheers.

I like to attack too. The best defense tactic is to attack. It is more enjoyable too by attacking the opponent. Furthermore, attacking will make the spectators to be excited and make the game can be enjoyed by many people. Just watch a football match with attacking, then we can feel the adrenaline.

Dear friend, My style varies it depends upon the opponent I am facing. If he needs an attacking game from me to defeat my opponent then I may take that or if needs a defensive side then I may take that also. But ultimately I just want to defeat my opponent for that I use both attack and defend according the opponent pressure on me. But ultimately I just want to win the game.

I am like you. When I play tetherball one of my best skills is being on the offense rather than being defensive. People rarely play with me and I know it's because my skills are so awesome that they fear defeat.
