My skill totally dissapeared, how to recover?

by Erik_Twice Sun Oct 03, 2010 7:37 am

I was never the best FPS player around but I could handle my own and be a decent pubstar on the very least. However after 3 weeks without playing my aim is horrid, my movement is slow and I do lots of stupid things that get me killed.

It is so bad I can barely keep a kpd of 1, it's like being new to the game again. What should I do to recover? Just play pubs for a while? Focus in recovering my aim?

I have recently started to play Beatmania again, perhaps adapting to its timing screwed up my aim and speed recognition?

The only game I can think of that is so brutal would be counter strike. Am I correct?

Anyway dude, just relax. After 2 months of not playing TF2 my play style wasn't that good, but after 3 days I was back to being good.

Actually it's TF2. But it's really bad, I can't even turn around without getting lost.

Haha, I know the feeling man. Just hang in there and you'll get your swing back. I don't know much about TF2, but I found that running through the maps on my own once a week in MW2 made a big difference in my game.

Honestly, I barely know the maps on TF2 and still hold my own. I'm not sure why you suck all of a sudden, but it really shouldn't be hard to get back to where you once were. Just keep playing.

Dude I joined you in the server you were playing earlier on. The players playing there weren't any good.

In my opinion the best way to become good, is to play against good players. At first you will have your ass kicked, but after a few days/weeks you will be able to play on their level.

I know an Italian server with very good players. If you are interested I can post the server later on.

I know! That's why I was there :lol:

Normally I play in Uberium or if that is full Lethal Zone. People in those servers are pretty decent, they are Vanilla and have good ping so I normally play there. I was just trying to recover the basics of movement and aim there before going back to my usual servers.

I couldn't agree more. Challening yourself is the only way to get better. For example, when playing musical games I'm known from playing all the hard songs I can even if they are 5 or 6 levels about what I can beat. Those who started at the same time as me and took twice as much time to get to the same level as me and a lot of those got stuck in the way.

Sure, why not. Add me to friends =D

Obviously you need to kidnap children, steal their spinal fluid and refill your own. :roll:

Sure, I will do that.


Other than kidnapping children I have noticed that I lift the mouse quite a lot even when I have plenty of mat left. Is this normal? What should I do? Does someone have a video of a player's mousemat while playing?
