Tough weekend straight into an intense week at work. Definitely affected my mentality early on, as coming in with high levels of fatigue decreases one’s focus. But overall it was a good week of GG!
Played versus Svampen(jc) and Gerran(ve) on PSN on Tuesday (GGs!). Played too much, while being too tired, honestly. The session resulted in me writing a blog post about what Baiken can to on block as I was forced to re-think my approach a bit. Obviously a lot of matchup specifics as well. Overall one of those sessions where I was too tired to actually play versus.
On Wednesday I played two FT10 sets against SnailBorn(ky). Ky is definitely the matchup I have played the most. Won both sets convincingly, but the score would have look differently w. a better defense and anti-air game from SnailBorn. He also needed to be more disciplined w. how handled azami in controlled situations over both sets. We also had a shorter training mode session the day after.
On Saturday there was a local GG ranking battle here in Malmö. However, amongst the GG-crowd, there was a consensus: more time for casuals rather than a tournament. So, there was no tournament, but lots of casuals!
Played against SmashSK(el), James Lame(di), Adrian(rv), MegaSuperHeavy(fa) and Mikkel(so). I felt that my game was pretty good, especially after a week of thinking so much about GG. I could focus on adapting to my opponents, and execution-wise I also was solid. By the end I was hella tired though. Found some points I need to work on too. Offline is the best way to play GG.
Because of various reasons, I could also prioritize GG this week. And I learned a lot! Indeed, a good GG week.
