How do you prevent your brain from getting worn out in a fight?


I feel like to play at my best, I need to have a ton of concentration and focus really hard to keep up the fast pace of mind games, quick hit confirms, and adaptions in fighting games. It really wears me down though, my brain gets tired and I get burnt out really quick.

Then I just want to take it easy and relax in a fight, and I get creamed. How do you relax while still performing well in a fight?


@learis1 You need to play more. And practice more. The more comfortable you get with doing the moves and combos and setups in the game that you need to do with your character, the more it will become second nature and it can free your brain up. You won’t have to think about it so much. At this point, in SF5 with Dhalsim, I’m very calm and relaxed when playing matches. I’ve been playing since the release of the game though. Just keep at it and you’ll get there.
