    Maybe I should jump in, or maybe toe tip dip in.

    I would say I'm no better than mid-tier, and only then through stubbornness. I'm getting old enough that reaction based things like hit confirms I just won't really bother with most days. I auto lose to a lot of characters. I have a bajillion bad habits from playing the CPU 98% of the time and will d1 on wake up almost every time and cannot be untrained. I'm a very slow learner and not particularly observant when it comes to noticing what people are doing or what I'm doing.

    I'm also very anxious about playing strangers including heart flutters and hand shaking, so ducking people is a strong possibility. There is also a better than average chance that I will be playing with the volume off while watching back episodes of Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Twitch streams. If you are talking it's likely to yourself.

    If none of that dissuades you,
    I can really only play WoWo, but have a tragic Harley I would like to be better with.
    Central Time Zone - Smack center of USA.
    Usually around late evenings and most weekends.
    I am a unicorn, I mean wired player.
    I have cats, which is an unrelated but factual statement.

    We have a great core of guys here, that are all extremely patient, very willing to help and it's a very very low stress environment. Perfect place imo to acclimate to online matches.

    Man, at least stick to a strict sleeping regimen.At this point this is just for your own good, not even about fighting games anymore.Make sure you sleep a good amont before the next day.

    Id love too, but its too hit or miss. I work third shift but "life" in general happens during the day, lol. Makes it so somedays I just dont get to sleep. I get off work and have a ton of shyte to do, or just dont want to go to bed yet - I dunno why but Ive always been one of those people who after work has a ton of trouble going strait to bed unless Im as tired as I was today.

    To be fair though, I do sleep at work *most* nights anywhere from 2-4 hours, but its broken, weird sleep and I have to get up constantly to keep an eye on the dogs, or find the big ass spider that just crawled across my face and kill the fucker. We have mutant spiders at work.

    Ultimately though, you are right. A lot of times I COULD sleep, I just dont WANT to sleep - and that costs me. Hard to focus, hard to pay proper attention, etc.

    Was gonna get on, but Im watching ELEAGUE, and my house is flled with my niece and three of her friends + my GF and 12 (yes 12) cats. In a 700sq ft. apartment... God help me.

    EntropicByDesign Confused and afraid.

    There are reasons I enjoy my job, last night I got a Solid 5 hours of sleep interrupted only by having to get up every hour and 45 minutes to check on the dogs. So I'm damn sure awake now and once I get home get the cats fed shower all the usual s*** I'm going to try to get on and see if anybody wants games. I meant to get on and play yesterday but got caught up doing some stuff and by the time I sat down I decided to just lab a little bit and work on some Beetle combos.

    This thread is an awesome idea.

    Edit: Always helpful to include a message such as "tym grindstone" along with your friend request so that people know where you are coming from. This way, we can distinguish between fellow TYM members and Russian catfishbots.

    This is gonna sound super weird but you are fucking intriguing. We need to know more about you
  17. EntropicByDesign

    EntropicByDesign Confused and afraid.

    Lol, I dont think Im very intriguing. My work is super simple, I take care of an upscale pet resort at night - we board dogs for people willing to pay. But it's usually slow at night, so most nights, I do some cleaning, take care of any dogs with special requirements or whatever - then after I get to do whatever I want mostly. So.. I make a large human bed out of several, smaller dog beds, and sleep. I have internet and such and can haul my ps4 in and play - but when faced with the choice of playing a video game or sleeping, I will 11 times out of 5, go to fucking bed if I'm at work, cause it gets work over faster.,

    Would love to play my Cheetah against your BB or something one of these times; I feel like such a Cheetah scrub (scrub in general, really, but I play mostly Cheetah) most times and would love some feedback.

    Thanks to all those participating and organizing this thread. I've burnt out on the game but I'm hoping DLC 3 will pull me back in. If/when it does I'll definitely be coming here to get better.

    @Made Capo @Undergroundepict @New York Pizza

    Allrighty - you guys should be on the list! If you get games, try to give an @ and a GG back here after or something *if* you feel like it. Just keeps things active and busy and lets people know this isnt some vacant list of long-gone players.

    I know Ive been able to get quality games with quality humans within minutes of logging on - EVERY TIME Ive wanted to play. So, at least for me, its jumping.

    Additionally, I'll be on in a bit. Just getting the cats sorted out.
