Whenever I’m losing a match in a tournament, the only advice I get is to stay calm or just calm down. I understand this is good advice, but I don’t even notice myself getting worked up when I’m playing. Looking back at match videos, I can tell I start going for dumb throws, making bad assist calls, and just making bad choices when I’m under pressure. But again, I don’t feel nervous or uncalm, it’s just my play that shows that.
So what do you guys do to keep cool in the middle of a match? Does listening to music really help? Or is it just a discipline thing?
