how the fuck do I not flip my shit when I play this game and lose? I suck, I am not afraid to admit that. my win rate is like 42%. When I fucking got JV3'd yesterday one of my gc controllers were smashed (along with my glass table) by my own anger of losing so hard. Anyone know how to deal with his? And has anyone else got this mad?
I just get mad when I lose form some cheap shit.
Why the fuck do I get hit when people hit Marth's sword? I don't like winning with cheap shit. I'm having a fun and tense as fuck match, were both at like 120%, and then I win with a footstool. Fucking bullshit.
When I'm playing against people in games like Sonic & All-Stars Racing or Street Fighter, there'll be spammy tactics but you'll have workarounds for them and decent online/co-op play. It feels reasonable to play against other people and lose, because you feel you're learning from the experience, even if you're essentially hitting your head against a wall.
Smash's online feels different in timing and control lag from offline play - at best you're still reliant on grab/roll combos, at worst there are seconds of controller lag or character stuttering on the field. This results in people picking characters they can easily play with a flow chart of moves, given there's no standard of timing that they can work with to pull off trickier moves. The result can be frustrating because you're rarely learning anything from these matches and they can actively feel unfair. It's the same measure of 'unfair' you face in games like Mario Kart 8 with items, or Splatoon and unco-operative team mates. However there'll be enough 'decent enough' matches that you periodically dive back into Smash because you think you can salvage a good playing experience, and you get frustrated and leave each time.
I know this feel, but only under two specific circumstances:
1. The player is at equal skill to mine, but I still keep losing for reasons out of my control.
>I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY I KEEP LOSING FFS! IT'S NOT FAAAAAAIIIR
2. Somebody who's shitter than me wins, then like a little turd, quits before I get to fight them again. This one really grinds me.
>COME BACK YOU LITTLE SCROTUM. COME BACK SO I CAN SHOW YOU I'M BETTER.
Bonus: When someone leagues and leagues above you in skill (I have a 58.00% win rate so it's not hugely common) kills you and then TAUNTS about it. I don't mind getting thrashed by someone who's twice as good as me, I've been raised to act modest about my victories in life, so this one hits me quite personally. I know it's a really faggoty thing to be mad about but it still makes me angry. People need to learn more manners
>few friends if any
>gets so mad due to lack of sex and fulfillment that he breaks a table
Smash is not a game you will ever perform at if you are angry.
Unless you can keep a cool head you will continue to lose.
I actually just started going to tourneys and playing competitively so to lose to someone doing FG bullshit, like rolling, never shielding, always using smash attacks I get salty as fuck.
But the only person I can blame is myself.
I find it easier to read god damn competitive players than semi-competent FG scrubs.
Now that I go to tourney I feel disgusted with myself for losing to someone I know isn't as good.
I'll have to learn to adapt to even the most absurd playstyles.
I bet you're the kind of person that keeps rematching until he wins once, and then leaves.
What you should be doing is taking loses with humility. Whatever if they taunt after every kill, or teabag. You're playing into their mindgame, which is to get you mad. Study your losses. Learn from them.
I learned that you can counter roll spamming with perfect pivots. If they are on the other side of the edge, and you know they're gonna roll, just smash in the direction they're gonna roll. It's called a hard read.
What characters do you play? You should have at least one high tier character under your belt. At least a B teir. I main Ryu so if i don't get the chance to combo, at least i can make mix ups out my ass.
My biggest suggestion is to just chill for a bit if you are tilting, maybe watch some replays off the replay channel. I've learned some tech from stuff like that.
