FGC Philosophy is about leveling up inside and outside the virtual arena. Learning from Fighting Games and the FGC as a whole we can grow together. As a competitive player, I strive to always improve and I want to share that knowledge with others. I also know that what you learn in one area of your life can be applied to other areas of life.

    Stop “winging” your day
     
    As yourself, “If I had to double the thing I’m doing, what would I do, or how would I do it?
     
    Example 1: I want to double the success rate of my hit confirms.
    Example 2: I want to double the turnout of my tournaments.
    How would you do that

    #41. Consequences of Leaks and The Right Fighting Game Debate

    #41. Consequences of Leaks and The Right Fighting Game Debate

    Hello and Happy Holidays!
     
    This episode dives into the consequences of what can happen when game information is leaked. As many of you know I'm not a fan of leaks. This episode's story is a great example of why I'm not. Megamaxstar brings me this story and we dig into when leaks are and aren't ok.
     
    The second topic is a personal story from Megamastar and myself. At our locals, Max and I got into a somewhat heated debate with two fellow members of our community. This debate was over the upcoming Riot fighting game and what it could mean for the FGC as a whole. Our outlook was more positive, while their's was more cynical.
     
    As always thank you all for listening and stay tuned for more updates. Have a great holiday season!

    #40. Pursuing Passions and Growing Communities with Hannah

    Hannah is a Streamer, Commentator, and Competitor in the FGC. I had the opportunity to commentate with her at Youmacon Battle Opera 2019. Her story was very fascinating so we took some time to chat and get to know her more.

    #39. From Rookie to Diamond with Ceelows

    Hey All!Still recovering some sort of bug. -_-. Anyways, I came across Ceelows on twitter when I saw his Gold to Platinum guide. After looking at his teaching style I had to have him on the show. The bulk of our conversation was circulated around this topic. We briefly cover a few topics such as the upcoming Riot game and a few other topics.
     
    Sorry in advance for my audio issues. I don't know what happened and I feel it would be disrespectful to my guest to not post this. 
     
    Thank you to everyone for our support! Social Links to Ceelows Below.

    #38. The Art of Teaching Fighting Games, Commentary Tips, and More with Ace of Spuds

    Episode #37 w/ Ace of Spuds
    I first saw Ace of Spuds on twitter when responding to a post by r/SF. From there we communicated via twitter and then eventually invited him to the show. This conversation is a middle point in an ongoing challenge that is teaching/coaching fighting games. My hope is that this is just the start of a conversation, and I hope you all are able to contribute.
     
    Sorry in advance for any discord noises you may hear! I failed to separate the voice and PC audio. Unfortunately, I’ve had a bad cough and had to mute myself several times.

    Advice from Ace on how to get more involved with the community

    Show Notes
    My Why: I want to see members of the FGC grow the way that THEY want to grow. Not everyone wants to be the best player, but you CAN be the best at something. I love the FGC and want to see it grow and that’s why I do FGC Philosophy.
     
    Visualize something bigger - Use your imagination
    Look farther out
    5 Years out
    10 years out
    20 years out

    Find something that makes you enthusiastic
    STOP WORRYING ABOUT BEING REALISTIC
    Don’t focus on money

    Avoid the “easier said than done” mentality

    Prioritize Skill-building over comfort
    When thinking about the long-term you’re going to have to think about building skills you don’t currently have
    Think outside the box when building skills-based off what you want
    Communication
    Marketing
    Web dev
    Etc.


    Build Your Network
    Connect people that you know
    Share your goals with others
    Find out who you need to connect with to achieve your goals
    Find ways to help these people


    Make Bold Moves Sooner Than Later (START NOW)
    Put yourself in motion of the dream

    Find your why
    Start Small and work your way up
    Breakdown your big goals
    Do them in smaller chunks

Very Insightful. Unique FGC Voice

While other podcasts center around game releases, updates, and general tournament news. This podcast delves deeper into the FGC (Fighting Game Community) than the others. Highly recommend it. We need more episodes, hopefully the content creator can start posting content soo .
