“Every single button press has a purpose.”

Most tutorial videos are built around giving new players advice, but novriltataki recognizes that even FGC veterans can get stuck on their journey for improvement. It’s with this mindset that he’s started “Escaping The Plateau”, a mini-series designed to help veteran players identify the nuanced weaknesses in their gameplay or perceptions.

It might seem simple, but one of the most profound ways to improve is simply by imitating what top players do. “Almost all the information is on screen,” he points out. Barring edge cases of Option Selects, he’s right — by actively watching match footage, we can isolate small decisions of top players and analyze the thought processes behind those decisions.

Hey, I'm just a 3D-head in a 2D-world. I like pretty much all FGC stuff, and I really like hearing about the way people think about games.
