View Full Version : Strange days

I have lost it

I don´t know when

on my way to work
between train interchange
when carrying groceries from the store

I have lost it

have you seen it?

it´s bald and accurate
and deadly

and I miss it sadly.


Suddenly, I can´t hit a barn in 50 meters!
I have no idea as to what has caused this sudden and total incompetence on my behalf.

I now sit for hours by the controllers, sweating and desperately seeking the kill that would convince me of my skill. And it won´t happen. I have lost it.

Anyone recognize this black magic?

Eh... it happens sometimes.. don't worry, just relax, have a nap, take a walk, drink a coffe, anyway, do something, and don't think about it anyymore.... take day or two... then try again... most probably when it gets back it will be better then ever http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Yes it happens sometimes. VonZero is right, just do something else for a while. It'll come back.

Yes, I do recognize it, it fades in and out from time to time, it happens to me sometimes, then the next day im on fire. Don't worry give it a little time, and you'll be cured! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

sometimes, having a bad internet connection (i.e. lots of packet loss) will make you look sooooo stupid.... don't worry, just reset your connection and try againhttp://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

What you say makes sense.

No more playing tonight. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif
On the other hand...I´m off from work tomorrow...

It´s funny. If playing for a while some day and you don´t get any kills, it bothers you quite a lot, doesn´t it? When you do score, on the other hand, all kinds of unthoughtful things come true:

I remember a particularly lucky sessions in a campaign I was playing at the time, I got 6 or seven kills in two flights, I promised my girlfriend I´d take her out to shop in the afternoon. It was unthoughtful...but on the other hand, the day had thus been a success for both of us. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Gunnery skills are just like putting skills...

One day you are Tiger or VJ, next day you're just useless...

Sometimes not much to do except wait it out...

To regain it you need to go to a bar in the bad side of town, get drunk, fight the two biggest guys in there you can find, then have sex with several beautiful women until they collapse from exhaustion as a grand finish to the evening.

The next day you will have regained your confidence. It's the Hemingway.

not a bad suggestion. Not a bad suggestion at all, indeed. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
