    Having problems with your mentality towards Smash? Learn how to improve it with top Ryu specialist Mason "Locus" Charlton's latest video below, which is all about developing a positive mindset towards the game
    and life in general.

    Locus' Learning and Mentality in Fighting Games Video

    Locus has a reputation for being one of the most positive players in the Smash Wii U scene, competitive achievements aside. There's never a moment where a smile isn't on his face, be it in victory or defeat, on-stream or off-screen.
    Locus is a Ryu main that is originally from Weyburn, Saskatchewan and is currently residing in Vancouver, British Columbia. Locus is currently ranked 45th on the Panda Global Rankings v2. Locus made a name for himself at last December’s ZeRo Saga, arguably the most important Smash Wii U event of 2016, by taking down several of the world’s best.

    Author's Note: Did this video help you at all or answer any questions/doubts you've had within yourself? Make sure you share this with somebody that is going through a bad mentality that could be effecting their play.

      The video summed up in two words:

      "Stay thicc."

      I do hate losing. Everybody does. The thing is, I fear losing and I feel like because of that, it makes me want to not play this game, even though I really do love Sm4sh. One thing I'm wondering is, how do you deal with jerks who make this game no fun to play? Especially if they're difficult to fight against in the first place?

      the issue I have with this "play to learn" mentality is how it's presented in discussion. it's not given a whole lot of detail and some people, like me, are almost obsessively specific when it comes to processing something. there is a method to someone's "learning" mentality, and the aspect I perpetually get frustrated with is the matter of "problem solving."

      I'll see a particular problem, "my attack gets beat by someone else's" or "I'm trying different approaches, but still getting consistently punished" and fail to see a particular detail... and not enough players whom I ask will outright be able to tell me what they will immediately see and explain it to me, such as "whenever *this* happens, you almost always *do that*, and I can see that"...

      so while "Learning to learn" is a mentality I will agree with (because I'll rarely accuse something as OP, if at all, at worst I'll say something's "rediculous"), there's typically two sides to every coin. where there's someone learning, there aught to be someone able to teach well, too. [( and preferrably not the folks willing to coach for a price, just someone who can point out a fatal flaw i might not be aware of)]
