I think that’s my biggest issue, or at least one that I would like to address.
I took like 2 years off fighting games because I was getting too pissed when I played online.
I come back, and I don’t think I’m getting as angry, but I definitely feel my heart pumping, and my execution goes out the window. When I’m in practice mode or against the arcade, I’m physically calm and collected, no crazy heart-beat, or sweat, and my execution seems to come out fine.
I notice a lot of people get pretty intense and adrenalized with fighting games, and they make it work for them, but I don’t think it works for me, and I would benefit more from being my usual relaxed self. I also notice there seems to be great players that seem pretty calm.
So… any tips for staying calm and keeping the heart rate down?
