Well after weeks and weeks and WEEKS of practicing, reading the forums here, practicing, asking some of you guys questions, practicing and practicing I finally went to my 1st live tournament. And I’d never seen anything like it. I must say, there are some people that really REALLY need to get a life. But anyways, I step on the scene with my brand new Akuma (thanks to you guys) and my matching MadCatz FightPad. And it’s finally my turn to fight my first match up. Honestly, I was a bit nervous, but I got skills so I was cool for the most part. The guy I was playing against picked C. Viper and while I totally demolished him (thanks to you guys again), I start noticing that my hit confirms are a bit laggy :wasted:. But I said to myself, I must just be nervous and not hitting my buttons. However, my timing is impeccable. But I ignored it and took the 2 sets easily. But I kept wondering about the lag I noticed. So I get to my next round I went up against Gen. An easy match-up for me for the fact that my brother mains Gen so…right . However, the TV is lagging again and I’m getting punished heavily for it. It starts frustrating me and eventually lose to the guy in the 3rd set. I feel like I could’ve went further. But then I found about the HDTV lag thing. Lucky me. I feel like if I was on a normal TV I might have done better instead of having to try and change my timing mid-tourney. Sucks donkey balls.
Anyone else ever experience anything like this? And what should you do in situations like that?
