Mental Game Tricks

For many of us duffers the mental game is the most challenging aspect of our golf game. Too often we get in own way. We over think, under think and forget to think. We remember what we shouldn’t and forget what we should.

We’re thinking about swing mechanics, course strategy and the putt on the last hole. We have expectations of ourselves and the play of the others in our group all on our mind.

Playing for a little coin? Are you thinking of how much you might win or lose? Are you playing partners reminding you that this putt is for a skin? Now they have you thinking about skins instead of the putt?

Our minds are filled with all sorts of thoughts most of which do more harm than good to our golf game.

It is helpful therefore to discuss some tips on how to deal with the mental side of golf. We suggest you use this two step thought process below while addressing the ball.

·         Think only about what you want to have happen.

o       Use a pre-shot routine to make all your decisions.
o       Think about how you envisioned the shot during the pre-shot routine.
o       Don’t allow yourself to think about what might go wrong. That is for your pre-shot routine.
o       Commit to your shot selection.

·         Focus on how to execute the shot before you.

o       Focus on the only thing you have control over: how you execute the chosen shot.
o       Ignore everything and everyone around you during the shot.
o       Execute the appropriate golf swing

A better golf game can be had if you will just focus on the task before you and eliminate all other thoughts. Execute bad swing thoughts by focusing on executing the shot you are about to make.

Some Tips about DOTA Strategy

Farming

Farming means killing creeps or neutrals for gold. The more enemy creeps you kill, the more gold you’ll receive. Sometimes when farming becomes difficult, player may turn to farming neutral characters for extra gold.

Last Hit

Last Hit means moving in close to hit the enemy creep for gold. Damaging an enemy creep does not provide gold, so its beneficial for a non-ranged character to move in for a last hit to receive this benefit. This also allows you to stay out of range of the opposing team.

Making a last hit requires a feel of the timing to deal direct damage for different characters. You can get a feel of this simply by playing the game often. A good strategy is to keep the thumb on the “ALT” key so that you can readily see the life line of the creeps, and only move in to get a last hit when its life is low.

Hot Key

Hot Key is an essential DOTA strategy. Different spells are tied to different buttons which when pressed will activate the spell. Since battles in DOTA last only a few seconds, clicking on the icons with the mouse is a little slow.

Mouse

Getting a good mouse is important for DOTA. You’ll also enjoy the gaming experience more with a good mouse, skates, and mouse pad.

Item Build

Having the right item build will increase the power of your character. Some characters require more health or more speed, or more mana as the game progresses. Knowing the complimentary item build for your character will increase its power and direct damage.

Heroes Of The Storm

Characters

The game offers a wide array of playable characters for completing your team of five. Generally, there are four types in which you can choose from:

Assassin – can inflict heavy damages on vulnerable enemies, but may be held back by its susceptibility to enemy attacks as well

Warrior – resilient to attacks, warriors are capable of taking on waves of enemy minions

Support – these types can reverse tables for any team through healing and giving out added abilities to allies

Specialist – whether it is to act as the team’s commander or siege, their specific expertise may come in handy in developing the overall force of your team

The right set of heroes is one of the key elements of surviving Heroes of the Storm. But it doesn’t end with customizing your team’s abilities. Here are a few tips as to how to effectively maneuver your hero:

Avail of the “try” feature – To get an initial feel as to a hero’s stats, the game allows players a free trial of using it for a pseudo-combat. This minimizes the risk of regretting the gold you spent on someone not really compatible for your strategies.

Raise the levels of as many heroes as possible – A common mistake of gamers is focusing on one character alone. At minimum, try to level up every hero you have available to level 5. This unlocks key abilities and can also help you tailor-fit team composition to your enemies’ weaknesses.

Practice new techniques – Before immediately trying out that strategy you’re itching to use, test it first through a practice or co-op game. It wouldn’t hurt to make sure you won’t screw things up in an actual match.

Game Play

Although there are similarities, Heroes of the Storm has distinct features in contrast of the likes of DOTA and League of Legends. Let’s take a look at some things to remember before jumping into the game:

Gaining experience – Your role in the team doesn’t matter, nor does your favorite “last hit” strategy. Every member gains experience in a constant manner as long as all of the lanes are occupied.

Team dynamics is a must – Though it may be difficult at first to communicate with fellow newbies during in the beginning, note that this game is all about team work. Communication and building strategies is what will set you apart from other players.

Battlefields greatly differ – The game features unique arenas, but they all have one thing in common – there exists a key event that is vital to win against the enemy team. For instance, one requires you to pay gold to a pirate captain for him to charge his ship’s cannons against the enemy lines.

Online Slot Games

Let’s start with the most important tip of all. Do not gamble more than you can afford. There is nothing more that will bring your gaming experience down than spending money you don’t have. Set an amount in your mind that you can afford to lose. Yes, lose. You can not sit down at slot games and expect to win all the time so setting the expectation that you will lose will make the winnings all the more rewarding. Do not spend your bill money, your vacation money or your rainy day money.

Secondly, set yourself an alloted amount of time to play online slots. If you reach that time allotment, stop. Even if you have not played through all the money you could afford for that session. Sitting in front of your computer, in the comfort of your home may make you want to play for hours and hours. This could lead to the possibility of you depositing more money than you wanted to. Think of it as being at a land based casino where you have to go home at some point in time, right?

Next, should you consider taking a bonus? This will depend on your situation. Are you a new player at the online casino where you are able to claim a nice welcome bonus? Or are you a seasoned online gambler that knows the ropes or has a bank account that can afford not taking a bonus? Using a bonus on top of your deposit will add money into your gaming account that will give you more game play and better chances of hitting some nice payouts. Nice payouts because you would have the option of setting your bet amounts higher, if you choose. Always read and understand the terms and conditions of all bonuses you consider claiming. There are playthrough requirements and maximum cashout requirements that most online casinos attach to their bonuses. Be prepared to play through their required playthrough amount before thinking about cashing out. Also, make sure you know what games are allowed to be played with that bonus. Some games are disallowed and if they are played, you may not be awarded your cashout.

Speaking of cashouts, make sure you find that all important cashout button. This is the tip for playing online slot games that seems to be missed by some gamblers. The objective in online gambling is winning money and bringing it home. Once you reach an amount of money that you are happy with, hit the cashout button.. You can choose the amount that you want to cash out from your total. You do not have to cash it all out, in most cases. Also, most casinos will hold your money for a 24 hour period in hopes you will reverse your cashout. Once you cash out, some casinos will allow you to request to flush your account. This means they will not hold your money for the 24 hour period. It will be gone from your account and you will not be tempted to reverse the cash back into your gaming account to keep on playing. Contact the casino by phone or by live chat as soon as you cash out and request the flushing of your account.
