I f’n suck right now.
I played some matches last night at home, and the past few days in the arcade, and I am just totally off my game. I’m losing matches I honestly should be winning, and taking stupid damage. For example, last night - I was playing against a Ryu player. He jumped at me - usually, I know exactly what works and what doesn’t work against the jump-in at that timing and distance. And despite knowing that, I throw out an attack I know will get stuffed - it gets stuffed, and I eat damage for it. This happened like three times in the match.
I can just feel that my head isn’t into it right now. Factor in that I use a very strategy-dependant character (Chun), and it leads to me taking some hard losses.
So, how do you guys deal with periods of bad play/slumping? Any stories or tips you’d like to share?
I think I’m going to take a small break from the game. When it was in the arcades I only played once a week - I’ve been playing steadily everyday since it came out. Maybe I’m burned out?
I’m going to some tournaments next month, so I hope I can get over this soon…
