Probably CEO, not GOML since M2K said he's not attending.
Broke my controller after getting backthrow gimped by jumping early for the millionth time last night. I don't deserve to play if I don't adapt. Ordered a new one, but I'm not going to play until I receive it in the mail Friday.
My mentality is total crap, so is my tech skill. I can do a bunch of shit without context, but what does it matter? If I can't do what I want to do at the moment I need it, then my tech skill is shit. It's black and white/absolute thinking, but it's actually true - if I can't control what I want to do, if I'm not consistent with it, and if I'm doing it at the wrong times, how is my tech good? The answer is that it's not.
So breaking my controller (which I did outside away from everyone, just threw it a couple times silently) is giving me a mandatory break to relax, reassess my mental state, think about how to do the tech I need to, and to reset my bad habits. I may start from scratch and rethink every character I want to play, but I'm likely going to stick with spacies and Marth.
I ended up playing with my friend's gamecube (not smash 4) controller and I ended up being slowed down so much by it (no shield drops, looser stick) that I ended up playing better.
On a less self-loathing note, here are some cool clips I got a week ago or so:
