    Well,

    maybe you know that problem as well ?
    you think "wow I am uber pro !" and than somehow you still loose [​IMG]

    Just had a tournament and i was never as good as today but still i did loose ...
    I just can't understand it why do I win so many times when i suck bad as hell and than loose when I am my best.

    maybe because you underestimated your opponent? or maybe you overestimated yourself.

    you can only say you're the best WHEN you win and not when you're still in the heat of it.

    sorry but i don't really feel for you. its your fault that you lost.

    EDIT: nah. i kinda feel sorry for you though. *pats back*

    Low self esteem. You're doing good, but then you say, "Wait a minute... I can't do this good... I suck."

    So then you start sucking

    There's always somebody better than you, simple as. Plus when you're playing well you're brains clear and responds quicker, then you start loving yourself and you lose those sharp reflexes.

    I always fail at EVERYTHING I try, the main reason behind me quitting gaming. I can't play any games that others enjoy without failing epically.

    Yeah well I normaly do suck as well or better i play totaly bad but weirdly than i win more often than when i have this phase when i play just great ...

    don't mean i am best or something but i am just better than i am normaly and even the ppl watching tell me they never saw me that good before ... but still in those more or less rare occasions i am loosing pretty often [​IMG]

    last time as well my oppenents had like not the slightest bit of a chance the first 2 matches but than he still won 3:2 [​IMG]V
    and that guy knows me because we train often and he was as well like "what the hell did you just do ?" still in the end it did not work out [​IMG]

    In general, I find I perform my best at anything when I'm not thinking about it too hard. For example, when I'm driving, I can pull off pretty good shifts when I don't think about the clutchwork,revs, gear lever, etc..., but as soon as I try to think about the shifts, everything is terrible.. So when you are doing well, just try not to think about that fact.

    That happens in tennis as well, isn't that the thing where someone spends the first 2 matches getting used to how their opponent plays so they know how to react to counter them in the later games?
