I just want to get this out the way, I’m a hatemail sender… I cant help it, I know i shouldn’t but when I lose in this game it really gets to me. I just sit their holding my pad fuming, I think about my opponent sitting their thinking they’re good because they beat me, I picture there smug face, sitting behind their screen and I wanna punch it in for real.
I dont know why this game makes me like that, when I get sniped or killed unfairly in a FPS I brush it off, racing games, fight night, football games ect when I lose I forget about it, but when I lose a game of ssf4 all of a sudden I feel the rage come over me, I find myself wishing unpleasent things on my opponent, especially when I’m not happy with their tactics. Some of the things I have said to people afte a defeat I am to ashamed to repeat. I never rage quit, but sometimes when I see my opponenet pick blanka or other cheap characters I leave the game.
The reason I am saying this is because I need help, I know it’s just a game and I know everyone will come hear and tell me that but it just destroys me when I spend hours in training, learning combos and FADC’S and everything else only to go into a match and get beat by some idiot who does nothing but mash dragon punch all day, or throw blanka balls ect ect.
Sorry for the rant but I just need to know how I can overcome this rage because I seriously think this is affecting my game, and all I wanna do is get better.
