So I was ecstatic.
No, More than that. I was downright blown away by the fact that I made it to the 4th Rank in MvC3. I thought that, just for a second there, I’d be able to come out swinging and blow them fuckers away at every step I took, because I was that damn good.
Then I step into my first 4th Rank match against another 4th Ranker, and I’m destroyed.
Out of all the games I’ve played in this rank, I’ve only won once, and just barely at that. It’s almost as if in that one moment of gameplay, I’ve stepped up to the big boys room, where there’s no remorse, and no looking back. Sure, I can pull off 100% combos and cross ups like the best of 'em, but it’s almost as if I’m on a whole other level that I’m just not prepared to battle against.
I loved the fact I was a Sentinel Destroyer, now I’m getting destroyed by combos I didn’t even know existed until they were used on me.
I dunno guys, Maybe I’m taking this too seriously. It just hurts when you’re feelin’ good and think you’re actually able to play Professionally, only to get one hell of a reality check.
