Ive been playing competitive games a lot. Mainly fighters, finding out about a community devoted to these types of games was cool to know and I want to become more involve in this type of community. But I have a few obstacles to overcome.
Being a responsible player.
- identifying my play style*
I actually cant figure out my play style and I want to identify it so I can make solid choices and focus my knowledge of the game around that style.
I know I’m a defensive player because Im not comfortable with just attack constantly, but I also know I’m not really a turtle type of player because I don’t like to stand to far away and wait on my opponent.
I realize Im a player that favors the low tiers cast. I like them because usually low tier cast are much more difficult to learn and forces my work out of the player. I use them as tool to learn the game system and develop strategies. I like to be creative with my play style and low tiers cast usually excel in that department because they usually have limited tools that I can use in my own personal way.
Being a sore loser
Losing is not a problem for me but when encounter match ups that do have huge odds against me I do tend to be upset if I cant overcome these matches. I refuse to play counter pick in these situations but I do also put my self at disadvantages because of my character choices. I also hate to lose by over power/ superior characters ( top/god tiers)
Playing for fun
I haven’t quite figure out this out. I play these game because their fun. Admittedly I like to win but not all wins are satisfying to me. I’m only satisfy knowing I over came disadvantages and out performed my opponents. But this seem like a lie to my self because if I play incompetent players then I get bored.
If a game has a tiers gap too large for low/bottom tier to compete or the game has strict learning curve, I usually drop the game or don’t play them competitive seriously.
