George S. Patton on War with Comments

Wars may be fought with weapons, but they are won by men. It is the spirit of men who follow and of the man who leads that gains the victory.
- George S. Patton

Players: It is essential for leaders to prioritize the enjoyment and progression of the players as individual humans with needs and desires, before accomplishments in the game that have little value. A spirited leader who focuses more on the people, and less on the game, will have achieved victory, regardless of winning or losing in the game itself. To focus only on winning in the game, is to push aside the humanity of the people playing. When players are used as equipment to be thrown away after victory, they will flock elsewhere for enjoyment. Both the mind and heart of the player are intrinsically involved in gaming, and one's enjoyment is crucial in obtaining fulfillment through gaming mediums. Leaders must continually strive to be an architect of this enjoyment.
