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"

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
