Some of you guys here already know my team, and how awfully mentally stressful it can be to use properly and be able to take out top teams.

After a few tournaments and long casual sessions, I've noticed a lot that after a few hours or so, my gameplay just starts to go downhill; I make the worst decisions ever, etc. And it's mainly because my brain is extremely fried by that point and I end up unintentionally showing why my characters are crap.

How do you guys deal with such? To be fair I also experience this weakness in some other video games (Pokemon and Pop'n Music in particular), but it's extremely noticeable here in Marvel since I turn from one of the best in my shop to being the worst player in the shop in just a short moment.

I just realized I didn't title the topic properly. It's supposed to be "Mental exhaustion over playtime is deterring my gameplay"

Yeah, my Morrigan gameplay total derps out depending on how much my mind is in good health. I know that feel bro. :/

I just wish there was a way to completely remedy this, but alas fatigue is usually my problem when doing almost anything =_=;

I never really have this problem unless the opponent is boring me.

I usually take day long breaks from the game when that happens. I usually will think of ideas and solutions and my mistakes from my past games.

If I go back to playing, I stay in the lab for a cool minute. Those times when your getting mentally exhausted (and aggravated) just lead into more mistakes. Just walk away do something else IMO =\

Yeah I do that too, but during tourneys and stuff like that sometimes the matches just come too quickly and stuff.

Right now what I do to somehow reduce it is by bringing along around 4 bottles of 1.5L water with me, and some candy.

take a break before each opponent and take a break every round even if you feel fine just to delay the fatigue
