Also here is a response I gave to a player who is losing games alot..
"SuperSeizure I played you in a game which I won and you just said "gg" and moved on to the next game.
PROBLEM - I think you just go from one game to another hoping to improve and now you feel you need to make a thread as you feel your not improving.
There is no point in playing game after game after game and not knowing where you went wrong... I was a 1300 player when I was first ranked about a week ago... I kept working up and down.. Losing to top players in the ladder and managing just about to win against low-rated players.
Now I am a 1450+ player at the moment. I've increased by 150 points in a sense rather I keep it that way is to tell in the future.. But how did I get up there?
Everytime I lost a game I go over it. Doesn't matter if it was luck or skill.. I will always look over here is a few examples that I've learnt from and made sure I didn't do it the next time.
Example 1. https://www.warlight.net/MultiPlayer?GameID=9360471
If I controlled Xinjang I would've defended my 2 valuable bonuses... Now I know that if I go for a combo there.. I control that territory before I take a bonus from my combo.
Example 2. https://www.warlight.net/MultiPlayer?GameID=9360543
I went for coral coase + South Austrailia. Which I learnt is a very unsafe combo and has made realise to watch for counters which are likely to be taken.
Example 3. There is no example 3..On that same page of my past games there is a 8 man tournament I won and 5 RT Ladder games in a row when I dreamed of just winning 3 in a row. That is the reward of self-analysing.
I will tell you another story.. I never felt comfortable with picking or my gameplay. Played against this guy who is a top guy. We spoke for about 3 hours playing 3 strategy games.. One of them was analysed fully.. Made completely rethink my picking strategy. He answered questions about "What if scenarios"..
So I started this RT Ladder last week. Was 1300 rated. Now I'm 1450+.. With a 8 man tournament won and have a comfortable rating with 1900 not ranked of course in 1v1 ladder.
You can improve... Anyone can. You just have to force yourself to improve. "
This can apply here.
