On the uppermost ranges of esports, avid gamers will attempt any marginally advantageous issue they are going to take into account to current them an edge over opponents. For one Street Fighter participant, that involved a tape measurer.
By the TWFighter Street Fighter V Primary in Taiwan this weekend, one among many prime Street Fighter V avid gamers on the earth, Hajime “Tokido” Taniguchi, busted out a tape measurer on stage to measure the hole between his face and his monitor.
Tokido often positions himself on stage with top-of-the-line postures in all of esports, he sometimes stretches sooner than matches, and he sometimes might be found meditating sooner than competitions. Guaranteeing he’s the correct distance away from his monitor — and thereby minimizing how rather a lot distracting eye stress he experiences whereas having fun with — just isn’t really out of the question for him. Plus he’s top-of-the-line SFV avid gamers going correct now, having merely gained ESL’s Brooklyn Beatdown and Evo beforehand few months.
Clearly Tokido needs to be a particular distance away from his monitor, and although we have no idea the exact reasoning behind it, it’s most likely that he is attempting to optimize his ergonomics — one factor that’s terribly essential for esports athletes to pay attention to.
No matter taking additional measures to confirm he was inside the absolute good place for having fun with, Tokido didn’t take residence gold at TWFighter, ending this weekend’s match in seventh place. Presumably he desires to manage his measurements ever so barely.
