So you consider emotion to be mostly negative and inhibiting then? What about the part of my post that I described using emotion to change your game and allow you to react more quickly, even if it's emotion like anger? So long as focus is a given, do you really believe that all emotion is useless?Yeah but pretty much, I just dont see there's a way to feel a lot of emotion without inhibiting brain function. I just find it easier to play without distractions, and I feel like emotions are just that. I wouldnt call that feeling of being in your "zone" an emotion.. so maybe this is all just syntax.
Yeah ideally that would be the way to play all of the time haha. Channeling the pressure or anxiety into positive energy and forcing a good performance out of yourself. Supposing that this method alone is not enough to win for whatever reason would be the only reason I would advocate trying anything different with emotion, but this is how we should all strive to play I feel. Calm but immersed into the game. Not everyone seems to be able to attain that balance as well(or not as easily), which is why I also suggest alternatives like what I said haha.It depends on how you emotionally respond. If you get tense (as in an angry kind of tense), obviously that is bad.
If you have an emotional response where you don't have confidence in yourself you are most likely going to lose.
In smash bros matches (with any character under any match situation) I get... I want to say "nervous" but that word doesn't fit. But I tend to feel the pressure to win, and I have confidence in myself. I love that feeling of tension. It's more like a "nervous excitement." It is the exact same feeling I get when talking in public. When talking in public, a part of me is afraid of giving speeches, but I am confident that I can say something smart. It's like a chip on my shoulder that drives me to perform better. Thus, I am nervous, but I am excited because I get to prove to myself and others that although part of me is nervous or afraid, I'm going to speak, and succeed. I get a joy out of succeeding and overcoming this worry.
In smash bros it makes me player better, it makes me focus, and I think it makes me milk more out of my strengths and allows me to deal with my weaknesses. It allows me to play good to where I am satisfied with my effort, even if my play isn't good or I lose. It also doesn't control me; I control it. I don't really get sad or mad, but I remain stable emotionally otherwise and enter a sort of nervous/excited/confident/content state that I rather enjoy. It makes me enjoy playing smash a lot more, yet it makes me calm oddly enough. It is like I'm unemotionally emotional!
Playing this way feels like me playing the game the way I want, and I think it brings out my strengths. I'm cracking jokes or complimenting my opponent, my muscles are nice and loose, I feel emotionally, physically, and mentally great, and yet I am focused in. You get to see two sides of me. One side is all goofy, loose, and having fun by being me and just enjoying life. The other side is in the game being quiet, trying to be the best me possibly in the game, and focused on winning (all of these this side of me enjoys). You get the best of both worlds
Does that make any sense=??? I hope I'm not over complicating it. It's just... hard to explain when you feel so many emotions in game (and humans have all kinds of emotions), yet part of you is still playing emotionless. It is hard for me to sum that all up, so sorry if this just came out as a mess of a post!
I hope I'm not the only person who has/uses these emotions when playing... (plus like I said, it oddly makes the game funner for me, and keeps me cool)
Well not with that attitude you're not .Im not old enough to drink tho
well, yea. but I don't have the kinda time to travel around and play that much anymore .Edit @ Mogwai: Well.....what if you played more so you could be drunk and happy going into being drunk? Then you'd have the most fun. =p
yo, you and like, 20 other people I'm sure. I'm so bigpro famous that I get double digits every time I stream. SUP!?mogwai i saw ur LoL stream on TL the other night
u shoulda watched it joe. It was pretty entertaining.I actually didnt watch it, i saw it was there tho. I had other stuff going on
I believe it is faster. Double jump accelerates faster than fullhop, so it should be faster for anything that doesn't require more height from your first jump.u shoulda watched it joe. It was pretty entertaining.
Also is instant double jump waveland faster than fullhop waveland for the side platforms on DL/YS/BF?
@mogwai: no its just because I can't drink for another 8 years so I just prefer talking about falco.
This seems more related to confidence or overall mentality towards tournaments than emotions, but of course emotion can be related to all of these things.I notice I always play better when I feel like I have something to prove. In situations where I expect to win I always play worse.
So I guess if I can frame things like I have something to prove all the time I'll do better.
It's tricky cause I want to be confident but not expect to win. Idk I wrestle with this a lot cause I think it makes a huge difference.
Also I play my best buzzed/fairly drunk cause ifgaf + I can still press buttons correctly.
Interesting, thanks Mogwai. =)I believe it is faster. Double jump accelerates faster than fullhop, so it should be faster for anything that doesn't require more height from your first jump.
not really.I'm wondering, if I do that, can't he just SH right over the hits, drop through it, and hit me with a B-air or D-air while I'm still in lag from the move? Mid-platform Foxes are so hard...
Mix up FH/SH Bairs to keep him on the platform or that side of the stage. Once you limit where Fox can go then you can start shine wavelanding or shooting in different ways to lock him down further/combo him.I am having a tremendously hard time against Fox on BF/DL64 and to an extent Yoshi. The platforms there are ****** me. See, the top platform is great and no problem, but when the Fox is above me, I really seem to be at a loss of ideas. It feels like such an awkward position to be in, and I can't go to the other side and shoot lasers (height is messed up)
I know that I can shine him from below, then waveland on the platform, but he somehow always seems faster than me at getting away and suddenly ends up below me, which is probably worse than above me.
How do I fix those mid-height platforms too high for my short hops but way too low for my full hop?
What's CC shield grab? and how does it differ from just CC jc grab?just CC shield grab
with CC shieldgrab, you can hold down and R and just mash A until it works.What's CC shield grab? and how does it differ from just CC jc grab?
A general order for ATs I would say is:Hope this is the right place to ask a question.
I've been messing around with falco for fun (guaranteed combos are always nice). I consider myself a decent player, so my falco isn't total trash, but I am wondering which specific techniques I should be practicing to make Falco a viable character. Like, dair shine double shine? Shine retreating nair? Shine waveland? Character-specific is what I'm looking for here.
As well, how does one decide whether to try to follow up with a shine waveland -> continue combo, or when to just shine -> dair or bair? Is it just intuition about when you can keep the combo going?
i was fine w/ him taking my 20$ it's not a huge deal and don't expect charity from anyoneRrrgh, Pi's friend, not cool. Once people start taking only a little of the money to be "nice" after MM's, everyone expects you to do it and then you feel like a jerk for saying "uh, no, I'm gonna take your money."
HONOR THE INSTITUTION
so you grab out of your CC instead of d-tiltWhy would you JC a grab if you are CCing (which means you're not moving)?
Hmmm, well wouldn't it be faster and easier to hold L/R and mash A?so you grab out of your CC instead of d-tilt
You're going to win Apex.im better when im confident. Part of the reason I **** Fox is cuz I'm so confident
