I’ve been playing street fighter for years but since SF4 I’ve been pretty serious about it. Pumping in insane hours and countless endless, ranked matches as well as spending small fortunes at the arcades.
I’ve played all kinds of players online and off. I’ve been to tournaments and generally try to play everyday.
Yet, I feel like I’m getting worse. The older you get, the more you fall, or so it feels like… Or perhaps I have some degenerate disease that’s wrecking my brain / coordination.
Most things in life do improve with practice. Driving a car, using chopsticks, juggling but this game doesn’t seem to work like that. I’m no better than 2 years ago according to my pp and bp. But not only that, my loss streaks out strip my win streaks and my win ratio is below 50% when it used to be much better.
Like a pro athlete who is getting older and becoming slower, and they know they’d better retire. That could be me.
Does anyone understand what I mean?
