It helped me alot, I used to sweat hard and get jumpy, Smacking the damn gate hard as hell doin DP motions and smash on buttons, getting headaches then get frustrated as hell*(From being mindfucked most likey lol)*
But playing it in the mindset of a game of chess or any other non verbal game helped me. Makes me think clear, moves come out crispy clean and it keeps my sodium level down:razzy:. And when i lose its like hey its whatever no stress or worries.
I put all the flashy show physics and moves behind me and it just a regular competition game in general…Like chess or monopoly which make me feel relaxed, Then i will adapt my opponent’s playstyle sooner or later (Next round, or next time we play together) and dominate dat ass.:woot:
being calm when you lose can equal many things, not just you don’t care
one could be assessing the situation they were in that caused them to be beaten with a cool calculated head, because when you’re in a salty mood you can’t really think, can you? i tend to look at clockw0rk vs. dark prince money match as an example, as well as daigo’s robotic demeanor
I don’t get salty losing to someone better than me or due to my own execution or gameplay mistakes. Losing to someone on a similar or, I feel, lesser level will get my sodium level rising regardless of anything else. People take saltiness the wrong way I think sometimes. As long as you realize why you are mad and use that energy to improve your game I don’t see it as a bad thing. I used to get so mad when I would lose to random, scrubby tactics, now I just beat them and laugh.
