    Whenever I try to perfect pivot my thumb sometimes refuses to move and I am never able to pivot because of it. Does anybody else have this problem or am I the only one?

    Yes I actually have this problem as well. Wavedancing, properly landing Zelda's recovery in particular I have issues with sometimes. Im assuming its our brains not processing what are fingers are doing? Who knows.

    Try the Splatoon hand excersizes, they help more than you'd think!

    I simply cannot do them very well because my fingers are not that fast. I find it easier to pp to the left.

    I recommend a lot of hand and fingers stretching and exercises to work on those joint and fingers.

    Those are good ways to help elevate it and help with making your hands not lock up.

    In Addition, if y’all still have problems pertaining to y’all thumbs, try to use bidou controls.
