You brought it up in a discussion about the merits of the liu xing. What on earth were you expecting? The level of play is going to get scrutinised. The fact is your buddy made some awful mistakes which completely alienated how the game should have progressed, making the bat rep tainted and pointless to bring up as it helps neither side of the argument as to whether the liu xing is of any value. By the same virtue if I have a game well outside of normal parameters, like I am teaching a new player or I roll crits 5 times in a row, I don't bring it up because people will rightfully point out his its a waste of time trying to add it to the discussion.
