I know this stuff sounds obvious but with the amount of time we have all put into these games this is something we should be considering more.
I think setting your stick on a table with a way to rest your arms should be a must. i don’t do this, i rest it on my knees. not only am i putting loads of stress on my wrists, but you are also putting pressure on your legs. there is some starcraft dude called incontrol who had to get rushed to the hospital because he sat down too long and something happened to his legs. they said getting up and walking around every once in awhile can resolve this. I was wondering if anyone has any recommendations for table height, and a good way to rest the arms without hurting your elbows.
Stick Vs. Controller
I seem to always get serious cramps in my hands when using a controller. I get serious pains in my wrist when playing on a stick that does not have a slanted edge. I would recommend switching to a stick just for this reason but perhaps other players don’t experience this like I do.
A good seat
Make sure there is a solid back. tv should be placed at eye level. a computer desk with office chair (with arm supports) would almost work if you raised the arm supports a little and somehow had a better bridge for your wrists. Sitting on the floor seems like a horrible idea.
Anything else we should be considering? my wrists are really not in a good state and I would like to improve my setup.
