>>25998845 >tfw you're literally only good at one obscure genre of game and completely shit at everything else
I have no idea why but first person close combat games like Mount and Blade, Age of Chivalry (previously the mod, now that the mods dead, the game even though I like the mod a lot more), War of the Roses, etc I absolutely destroy at, I have no idea why. I wish I could transfer it to a more popular genre, I've tried fighting games and gotten decent at a few after practice but no where near as good.
I haven't played Chivalry in months but I'm confident that if I joined a duel server right now I'd get 10-0 in 20 minutes.
I haven't even played the game that long, only a bit under 400 hours in chivalry and 600 in M&B.
I'm confident I'm in the top 1% of M&B players and the top 0.5% of chivalry players but it's so fucking useless
There's no competitive community worth shit for any game in the genre, which is fucking stupid considering L I T E R A L childrens' party games like Tr4sh have billions of autists and million dollar prize pools but I digress
>been trying to learn how to draw >watch someone else draw for a bit as some motivation >see the confident lines he does >a single stroke for each one and each one is perfect >understand that the difference between us is just practice and dedication but it still seems like I'll never be able to achieve that
>coming in from having a smoke >Fraiser is on the TV >he plays the piano and it reminds me of how much I want to be able to play it too
>beat friends and family at chess >think I'm good >sign up for a community chess club >complete shit >barely make 1600 Elo and plateau for 2 years of steady practice >years after that to this day I'm only at around 1675 and have been for the past year with absolutely nothing >tfw I have reached my genetic potential of being class B >there is no moving forward
feels like I'm in fucking purgatory, no one I know wants to play with me because I can beat them, and in any organized event I'm crushingly mediocre
>>25999816 Drawing hands and feet is actually one of the harder things to do in art because of the precise proportions and multiple joints. If you're off even slightly even in one small area they look awful
>>25999930 Employ every logical fallacy in the book, strawman, ad hom, ad hoc, all of them
It takes only a moment to assert something stupid but it takes a long time to refute said assertions
Trust me, I never lose arguments. People always give me the "muh dragged me down 2 ure levle and beat me with experience" but I know it's because they're butthurt they lost. Just spew so much bullshit they're left speechless. It never fails.
that's like being good at breathing, talking to people is part of being a human being, I understand where I am, but NOT being able puts you into the realm of being abnormal, i.e. it's not an actual skill
Don't even try to say "oh I don't know what it's like" I worked shitty retail jobs all through uni
>>25999510 Everything we play. Specifically, SSBB, Battlefront, Injustice, Soul Caliber. I try to hide it, but it makes me livid. They succeed at everything else they do at life, and can I have even one thing I'm good at? NO OF FUCKING COURSE NOT.
Seeing people improve or be successful is incredibly upsetting, what's worse is that I keep trying and it feels like I'm never going to make anything at all.
It's soul crushingly difficult to start from nothing with no experience and really only a couple of internet tutorials as a guide, not to mention my absolute lack of discipline. There's no fucking tutorial for discipline.
Either I'd draw something on a tablet and just get upset that I'm just able to draw random scribbles, I open up codeblocks only to minimize it and play a game and watch TV, I try to go khanacademy just to get upset at how stupid I am.
All I can really do is toil away inside a shitty, roach infested apartment.
In the recent years I've gotten progressively worse at vidya too. I don't even know how that's possible because I don't really do anything but play vidya. Few days ago I got incredibly lucky in Insurgency and finished the round alone killing 9 guys and destroying a cache with everyone in spectator mode watching me. >everyone cheered to me through mic >chat filled up with positive posts >tfw it could always be like that if I was good enough >tfw actually got really sad afterwards
