I was diagnosed with this at 14. Every now and then, I get spikes in my heart rate. I may sweat, I may not. But I will feel worn out, exhausted, like I had just ran a mile. This can happen before I exercise, after eating pizza, or while I play Smash online competitively. Things trigger me and I'm done right then and there and I need to chill out.
Today was my first day back on Smashladder in a while. After seeing Fatality's loss to Doom in a 4-5 moneymatch, the Georgia Smash 4 page has pretty much been on about how the GA Smash scene sucks. At the very least, it sucks in comparison to major areas, such as Tristate, SoCal, MDVA, and Florida. If our best guy lost to someone other than national, ranked players, it says something. It says something about our level of competition. How many people are playing at Fatality's level in the Tristate area? There could be at least 10 of them, not including someone like Nairo. The only people to play on or near his level in GA are Scatt, Neos, Reflex, and Player-1. It's a small playing pool of quality players, and we've been talking about stepping it up. Since that post, I've reaffirmed that I still want to be the top player of Smash 4. I don't know about the rest of the guys, but I'm back on track to placing #1 at Apex 2016.
That said, I try practicing on Smashladder. I face on guy in a set before a few friendlies, and I'm already spent. I could play for hours on a good day. I just can't right now, though. I'm physically spent and I don't have it in my heart (literally) to compete. It really sucks because I've been lazy about practicing, but I want to stay at the top of my game.
I don't know how many of you relate, but it's not very convenient when one is trying to practice.
