### Can somebody teach me speed games?

Im having trouble learning spped games, could somebody help me?

Here are my current speed game numbers:
Cook -1446 83 from 507(16%) 253 (4) Serial Killer (50%) Equalitarian (0.923)

This is of course in comparison to my casual game stats
Brigadier +2363 433 from 1058(41%) 857 (70) Serial Killer (57%) Equalitarian (0.952)

If you know the secrets to playing speed games I would love to hear, please post here.

Alas the problem is not that simple, I actually have lost less points from freestyle games (690) than from sequential (756), so the problem may lie in somethign deeper.

play 1vs1s on the maps you know well... stay away from freestyle of you are slow .. like me.

And keep the games to a 4-6 man room in esc and flat.

Any my win percentage might be less than yours... I just play them all except for the 1vs1.

btw, use "r" in freestyle... i mean spam the shit out of it.

In std. 24 hr. games, you might be taking the time to rethink any obvious reactions to what you initially see. Better %'s. Speed might be taking place of your normal logic (just guessing) due to seconds instead of hours. GL.

My personal rule for speed games: ALWAYS make sure you're fighting on familiar turf. This isn't the time for exploring and learning new maps or play styles. You will get annihilated on complicated maps you don't know.

-for blitz (1 or 2 min rounds) or freestyle make sure you know keyboard shortcuts and think during your opponent's turn. Mental exhaustion comes into play here. Be especially careful on manual freestyle Oasis/All Your Base/Europe 1914/and other maps with victory conditions or high bonuses that might be taken in the last split second.

-do the settings give the game to whoever goes first? To whoever gets a better drop? Cash in a strong FR set first? Is the map just a mindless dice fight? If so play only against higher ranked players.

-stay away from 1 min freestyle assasin on small maps unless you want to drop a lot of points learning to play this style.

Practice on maps you know, then tweak the map or settings one at a time. Good luck!

### Re: Can somebody teach me speed games?

The weird thing is that I almost always lose on maps/settings Im familiar with such as dubs on classic, (I think part of it is I play the random teammate sweepstakes). Surprisingly I do well on assdoodles and assluxs in the I have just enough ability to use clickies in speed setting to do things quickly on a small map. I usually stay away from standard freestyle ass I cant fully compete well while using a laptop. either way Ive dropped about 400 points in little under a week
