    You are doing it wrong!!

    You simply play until you don't want anymore... and if there's a day you don't want to play? Start up the game, do a few moves and combos so your body doesn't forget, finished. Even if that only takes 2 minutes to do.

    Forcing yourself into something were you haven't actually anything to gain is foolish.

    I mean, if you are payed for playing, that is something different. But then you will also have a FAR better motivation, since those hours mean money. Unless you play to become pro, there is no sense in straining yourself. You will only be let down... oh wait, you already are.

    Protip: a few months break, don't touch that game. Than play fopr fun.

    Second protip: Yay, I came second to last. There is someone worse than me!! A friend of mine never understood that attitude but for me, that rings true. If I am better than the worst player on my and the opposing team, that's already great with me. Don't mind that suddenly, a month later, I suddenly could win matches in Urban Terror :lovin
    As for Super Turbo, don't strain yourself. You probably are not proficient enough with your character yet to actually analyze matchups. And then... after enough games, you just know which characters you have a hard time against, even if it's not in line with the official ranking.

    Relax and just play, it's a game of fun and skills. Not a killing yourself. :china:

    when i decided to get into ST, i wanted to compete seriously. This was something i thought i could get into, and try to prefect like so many others out there. frustration is all that this is. I'm sure I'm not the only one who gets frustrated at times like these

    Not that I care about your SF problems or anything, but this thread is the perfect outlet for my story:

    One night, while I was indulging myself in my nightly activities (DL porn from clip4sale.com), I fell asleep and had this dream that I was playing SF4 with Justin Wong at this arcade. I was Cammy(Weird, i know), and Justin was some other lame character.
    The strange thing about it was that I was linking Cammy's supers from her normals like it was nothing.
    I don't even know if you could do that with her once the game comes out, but I was linking supers from left and right. I would just dance around the screen, hit him with 2 s.lps, then SUPER.

    I looked over at Justin, and that nigga looked pissed. I was like:"Yeaeeeaaah. SUPER MOVES ALL DAY NYGUH!" and he's all like: "FUCK DIS SHIIEET!"

    It was then my cell-phone rung and woke me up. It was my ex. Pretty much downhill from there.


    But seriously, stay in the aracdes. You'll learn alot and have all fun as well. You're problem is that you take it too seriously. Like it's Homework for you or something. Relax, go to arcade and just play. You'll pick up everything there as you go. Just chill.
    Ay look. I keep my ass clean. If a girl wants to put her tongue up there then, you know, whatever shinkuus her hadouken man.

    You don't play on GGPO? Shit, I soaked up that well dry when it dropped and I started getting good enough to place in ST.

    That, or you're not playing the right games that your scene is playing. You live in Illinois. That's pretty much GG land. You can get good at that.

    Dude, there's a shitload of times where I felt I should stop playing. I felt like I was never going to be a good player, I still aint. My "inferiority complex" always got the best of me. But I'm still here.

    As corny as it sounds, if you really want to be good just keep practicing and be as good as you can be. You will lose, so don't get mad if you do. Take it as a learning experience, homie. Ask experts for advice and work hard if you want to win the tourneys you train for. If you do quit, go ahead. One less person...
  • arstalarstal Joined: Posts: 2,968
    Well, if you're the one who ragequit on me earlier- I'll tell you why you lost.

    You were predictable as hell, so it's easy to figure out what you want to do.

    If something isn't working, try something different at least once.

    OK, I'll get in on the seriouspost train as well.

    It takes some people years to begin figuring this stuff out - I was one of them. You may just have to take your beatings for a long time before things become natural - blocking mixups, picking the right spot to land a throw, awareness of zoning, etc.

    And this shit should not be life or death to you. If it is, take a break and invest your energy in something else. Who knows, you might even learn something that could apply to gaming!

    Tears.

    If you need to rely on other people padding your ego or encouraging you, you're going to go nowhere in anything you do.

    Whiners don't get help or sympathy from anyone. Either quit without trying to make the world care, or look at the people who are AT where you want to be and find ways to get better. "I'm quitting X hobby" threads are the most attention-seeking wastes of everyone's time. You shouldn't need other people's input on the subject.

    Josh-TheFunkDOC and Ghaleon pretty much posted my exact thoughts on this.

    maybe you should find another reason to play this game instead of placing in the top at some tourny.

    your attitude is all wrong.
  • SystemSystem Joined: Posts: 508,676 admin
    I figured this was a bait post.

    My mistake?

    Seriously slevin - it's going to take a while to get good.

    If you are on GGPO, then you're probably playing some really, really skilled opponents.

    Losing to them should be a real life tutorial on how to play the game.

    Analyze your losses and learn.

    I'm 24 now and I started playing seriously when I was 12. Do the math on that one. I just RECENTLY started placing pretty well(13th, 8th, etc) in ST last year. It takes time to do this. You just don't become a fighting game god over night.

    It takes years and years to get good and understand these things. People nowadays don't have the patience. If you have only been playing for a few months, you should be getting raped. That is just the way it is, and it will never change.

    Fritos are interesting because they're just three natural ingredients (corn, corn oil, and something else, in that order). But yeah, Fritos are piss.

    Can't believe you guys are sleeping on Funyuns, so broke they put ST Akuma to shame.


    ... Oh, yeah, speaking of ST, just take a break for awhile. DS made a good point also.

    if you didn't give a shit then why would you post........ simple logic:

    if you cared: you would post (in this case you did)

    if you didn't: you wouldn't post.

    as far as me quiting is concerned..... im not gonna throw in the towel just yet. my first post was out of frustration, and you guys make very good points. this stuff takes time, and yes im far from being at the at the point i want to be if im gonna compete. also, i shouldn't take this much to seriously because i have lots to learn. Anyways, bottom line.... ya live and you learn.

    as far as me wasting forum space is concerned.... (a) ive seen a lot more stupid shit on here that wastes a ton of "forum space"... (b) people that did post probably felt the same way as me at one point or another (in this case frustration).... and (c) free speech (isnt America great!).

    I played in '94, took a long break from videogames, and have been playing my ass off for 2 years. I will still get on GGPO and play someone who will hand me my ass repeteadly with Zangeif or Ken. You're looking at it all wrong. You don't lose, you learn. You keep trying things until you see what works. You develop new ways to do damage. After you get basics down, you find new ways of mixing up moves to keep your attacks fresh. Never run the same pattern repeatedly. Don't open a round the same way. I'm sure this has all been said thousands of times elsewhere on this site, maybe even in this thread. Either you have the drive to learn, or you don't.
