So I participated at Columbus bar battles last Saturday, my first tournament. Now I knew going in I was going to get rocked, but I felt the experience would help me grow as a player. Now I understand why people saying online is nothing like a tourny.
I went 1-2, surprised that I won a match and that helped build my confidence a little bit. But man I was nervous as hell. I didn’t land a single BnB and my reactions went down the shitter. My hands were literally smashing the buttons everytime I pressed one.
So how do the rest of you guys handle tournys? How did you act at the first one you attended? Do you get the same way while playing or do you try to take it easy and not take things to seriously? I think next time I go to one i wont be as nervous and stay more calm since I will be less excited since this was my first and was kinda enjoying just being there.
