Becoming Top Tier: The Research

Becoming Top Tier: The Research

A few months ago I spoke on how the tools found in practice modes can be used to elevate your skills to the next level. You can only play the way you practice. Constantly reevaluating the skills you employ is a sure fire method of growth but there is more than one way to reach the mountain top. Researching other styles of play can impact your own in ways you may not expect. I've been playing DOA for over a decade and have cracked the top 100 on its leaderboards for several modes in multiple games. After years of play and practice I start manipulating frames without even knowing or truly understand what I was doing: All I knew is that it worked and more often then not I would win. Master is one of the best DOA players in the country and arguably the best Hayabusa practitioner out there but I had no clue of how systematic frame manipulation can be until i stumbled upon theses two videos of his. They are a absolute must watch for any DOA enthusiast.
