Vanno's Gaming Mastery X Journal


#42

Thanks for the recommendation! I’m new concerning custom subs and just checked out all the modules. How many modules can you add, and how many are even recommendable to add in one custom sub. QLQ is quantum limitless Q core I assume and for the start I guess I should only add the first stage.


#43

Also what’s the difference between quantum limitless and limitless core? Is quantum limitless an upgrade of limitless core?


#44

Quantum Limitless supersedes Limitless. I believe at this point, one would prefer Limitless only out of concerns of heaviness.


#45

Thanks! I’ll consider buying a custom sub soon with ~10-13 modules. Do you have any tips on starting out with custom subs?

My sleep quality has improved a lot compared to two months ago. Even if I’m only able to sleep 5h once in a while, I still feel well rested, and I wake up refreshed most of the days. My issues of not being able to fall asleep have also been resolved for 99% of all days.

I lost the most recent match vs the strongest team in my bracket, it wasn’t a surprise, but I’m disappointed and angry nonetheless. However, during the games and right afterwards I remained calm and positive as this is really important for keeping up the morale of the team and yourself. Only a few hours later all those negative emotions and thoughts began showing up.

Imma take the best from the loss and learn as much as possible from it. I think I didn’t perform that poorly and I definitely practiced a lot, but my coordination with my team was awful. Communication and social competence overall are not my strengths, but even for such a loner and introvert like me there’s ways to work on that! :sweat_smile:

3.9.2020

No changes or progress lately. I’ve decided to remove several distractions to focus more on my goal. As it just feels bad being in that waiting-for-improvement-state. Will update once I have more significant stuff to report. Current listening schedule is still 2-4 loops monday to friday and then taking a break on weekends.

The only kinda interesting thing from today is that I was in the 100th percentile of the chimpanzee test on humanbenchmark.com by using a certain method to memorize the positions of the numbers. Basically I invented a story for each puzzle and that’s how I got a high score. Not sure if that was anything special though, it’s a well known technique to make up stories in order to memorize certain things.

Negative, depressive thoughts and low mood for no reason. I literally cant think of a logic reason behind them and they intensify the later it gets throughout the day. This is a serious issue that I need to get rid of especially now with college starting again soon.

Getting tired faster without knowing why. Feeling sick/nauseous more often. Fatigue kicks in each afternoon. Seemingly having a weaker immune system nowadays.

Really not sure if that has anything to do with the sub. To be fair, I don’t think so as I had a weak immune system before I even started listening to the sub.

Really annoys me, as all I want is effective, focused and sufficient practice, which is difficult when I feel sick and struggle to concentrate.

Lately nightmares occur more frequently. They’ve been different from each other, but most of them include experiencing loss or crushing defeats.

Gotta bounce back and fight my way out of those low-phases!

Hang in there @Vanno! How’s your exercise these days? That’s one part that makes a difference for me.

At some point, you might consider a College Well-being subliminal that has Limitless (or, Quantum Limitless), AEGIS: Survival Instinct, Spartan, and/or Ascension. And don’t forget Asclepius to charge up your immune function (that’s actually in the description).

But even with none of the subliminals, the magic formula will always help: exercise, nutrition, and rest.

@Malkuth
Doing some form of exercise regularly whether it’s taking my dog for a walk, a workout or some stretching/yoga.

Today went a bit better, but I lose focus more easily when I’m just feeling slightly tired. In the middle of the game I would auto-pilot and mentally phase out if the game was 30+ minutes long. My coach pointed out some stuff about my gameplay and where I was auto-piloting and only then I realized it.
Felt sharper after the review, nevertheless I kinda miss it when I was less lost in thoughts all the time. I enjoy imagining things, trying to figure out random stuff and being philosophical, but it’s at that extreme point where it gets exhausting.

Asclepius is definitely a must-have for me. What’s your reasoning behind recommending Aegis and Spartan/Ascension? I read all the descriptions, but I’m curious after all.

I can lay more emphasis on meditation again (I do meditate, but probably by far not as much as I currently need). Concerning nutrition I probably have to eat smaller meals, but more frequently!

Extreme heachache that hasn’t gone away since yesterday evening. However, I generally have the feeling of being smarter than I used to be months/years ago.

College started and it’s fine so far except for the fact that I genuinely don’t wanna socialize too much as it exhausts/annoys me, if I don’t get enough alone-time.

My team made it to finals in the game tournament! But… almost a week ago my mother and I had a really awful argument and out of anger she destroyed an essential cable of my wifi modem. Especially now… that I have to prep for finals… I ordered a new cable but it still hasn’t arrived even though it should have arrived yesterday according to the customer service. What a disappointment. It’s 2 days until finals and I just hate everyone and everything in this world right now.

Things have been going from bad to worse as my college schedule has changed quite a bit compared to last year’s schedule, which means I won’t have the chance to keep being part of the team after finals and I can’t compete anymore in that tournament due to my lessons being exactly at the time where the tourney games take place… Soooo I wanted to give finals and my last practice scrim game my very best shot… The scrim was 2 days ago and I was able to play it. After college I sprinted to my friend’s place and played there as she lives nearby my college, but HAH it wasn’t that easy! Imagine, right at that time, there was the fire brigade at my metro station and I had to run a few stations on my own instead and take an alternative route, which resulted in a delay of 1 hour. Fortunately the others were patient and I’m grateful for that, but my whole body still hurts from that exhaustion and stress… I planned to grind a ton of games before finals, but I didn’t have the chance to and I’m impatiently and furiously waiting for that new cable. My mum hasn’t ever apologized either. Why is this all happening now? It will be my last game there (I can only possibly participate next summer break again), and it’s all falling apart. I will still play and try to improve at the game regardless of the tournament, but it’s a shame as I got to know all this people there and had much fun plus learned a lot from them.

It’s like something doesn’t want me to succeed. Putting 38573582 stumbling blocks on my path and even if I conquer many, it isn’t enough.

Sorry for the rant, but because this is my journal, I wanted to really describe my honest thoughts, even if they aren’t great/productive/optimal. I have a lot to work on and the situation shows how mad I can get when something or someone decides to stand in my way.

Lost finals sadly, but according to others I was playing really well.
In the end I’ve still improved a lot and reached a new peak rank on the solo queue ladder. Definitely worth the experience despite some unfortunate things happening like roster/coach changes.

College makes me really tired especially towards the end of the week, but i also think that it benefits me in many areas like improving my endurance, versatile thinking and creativity, social skills, physical health/fitness as I have to commute all the time, (Well let’s hope I don’t catch Corona.) logical problem-solving etc.

It’s just a matter of organisation for me to separate college and leisure well enough and to remain focused both in college and when I wanna focus on a game. With time I will solve the fatigue for sure and find ways to counter the problem. Improvise, adapt, overcome.

Big point that I’m pretty sure gmx helped me with, is dealing with a loss. I used to get bitter for days after crushing defeats, but now it’s easier for me to stand up again and keep going. A lot of research and exploring my own thoughts helped as well.
