I competitively play a game called Super Smash Bros. Project M, a mod for Brawl to make the cast more balanced and revert the physics to be slicker and more competitive like melee's. I started playing around six months ago and since then I've improved quite a bit. I'm hovering around the upper half of the top 20 in San Diego county, which is a region that's stacked as hell and full of amazing players. The community is thriving right now, there are 4-5 tournaments a week in Socal. Playing this game and going to tournaments and meeting all these awesome people has been one of the most fun experiences of my entire life. There are no online capabilities for this game so if you want to play you have to find someone and sit next to them, and because of this the community is so much nicer and less toxic than that of most other games. It's also a very intricate and complex game, it runs at 60 frames per second and has an average high level APM of over 300, which is roughly that of Starcraft. Nobody plays it even near perfectly and there is an enormous room for improvement. I want to be the best at this game, but because of how fast your hands have to move to keep up, I'm starting to get terrible hand pains at a very young age. I fear this may stagnate my progress, and I hope this doesn't become a serious issue because I would seriously regret not reaching my goals.
