Eyesight Impaired Airball
So the no.replies after 50.views was making me feel depressed, so I'm going to write a list of tips and tricks I've learned over 4 years of not seeing what I'm doing.
Take note that I have a somewhat rare but very severe condition that impairs my vision. I am extremely sensitive to light, my eye muscles move sparatically and make my eyes "shake" , leaving me with a permanent Vision of 20/100 and basically meaning even.if I could afford a car I can't pass the DMV test, glasses don't help and I have undergone 3 surgeries to try to correct it all of which have been unsuccessful.
Enough of my backstory, now time for tips.
When you can't see what you're shooting, you still have to know where to shoot.
Make your condition known to your teammates, and if you can discuss what they plan to do and move so you can plan ahead, if someone says they'll jump.forward and try to get all the way to d4, you'll at least know you might have to keep from shooting over there. In game communication is crucial, you'll Be a bit annoying but it'll be better to be constantly yelling "where are they" and shooting where they should be, than to shoot randomly and risk angering your team when you unload a hopper into the netting.
not a lot of people realise this, but the.breakout is probably the hardest part of a game, whether you can see or not.
Its hard to know where to go sometimes but remember that speed and agility are your friends. If you move aggressively you have a higher chance of catching.the other team off guard, and you'll be closer to what you're doing. People react fast when they see you so we have to be able to react faster. You will have to overcome your fear of running blindly but once you do, it'll be a lot easier to move bunker to bunker. I actually tend to surprise some people when I run into where a stream should be and make it to the next one unharmed. Wind sprints and hill runs are great for improving your Sprint speed.
This goes for everyone really however bad their eyesight is. If you are sensitive to sunlight, buy a smoke lens, they really do work. Wear a hat outside and inside games, I personally like to tluck it under my mask when I play. Wear your glasses under, I know masks like the Proto Switch series have room in the foam for a pair of glasses to fit inside, and There are enough masks to choose from that we can all be given a little eyesight back, if not all of it. Don't play back, it's better to be closer to th match because generally if you can't see you can't hold a lane. Unless you knew you and your teammates could.coordinate well and help you out with call outs, back isn't the best place to be.
This is important. It'll be hard, it won't be fun sometimes. People will yell at you for being stupid in your moves and people will always assume you.can see normally until told otherwise, sometimes, as with my condition, people won't believe you until they get a long look at the way your eyes shake. But always remember that it's just a game and just remember that you're never as bad as it seems. Just try to ignore the rest, and just be your best. I know that there's gotta be other people out there who can't see well so I take comfort that I'm not alone.
Thank you all (: if anyone knows anything else that could help a post would be greatly appreciated, I'm going to go think up some other ways to help haha, have a good day
