Does anyone else have that "warm up phase" when playing?

    When I play blue hunter with other people in arena, I find that I make trash combos (6 or lower) through stages 1-6 and warms up to 7 and then consistent 8 combos. I don't know why but this always happens and it's embarrassing.

    I do 4-5 combos for a few floors. Not to warm up but to bolster the confidence of my partner. The more I suck the better they play. Then midway I take over.

    Not really, sometimes I'm a wizard other times I'm shit, no warm up necessary

    Alcohol, caffeine, sugar, nerves, whether or not I just woke up, etc. do affect my sorting quality.

    It's not really a matter warming up.

    It's better than good at making 8+ combo on the first tenth floors and only do 6 combo on the remaining 10+ floors :)

    I have more of reverse warm up phase. I play well and then get worse.

    Really depends on time of day for me and what I have been playing that day. If I had been playing blue hunter and swap to radra or something I definitely need to warm up but i've been playing combo leads for so many years now I don't have to warm up with anubis bastet or blue hunter really.
    I do however have to warm up when it comes to thinking about dungeon mechanics. If I go against sopdet my first arena run of the day I always forget how many combos I need to do.

    I feel like my performance mostly decreases as time goes on. Not sure if it takes a toll on my concentration or if I become too complacent in combo'ing. Taking a break and coming back later generally does make things better again though.

    I'd like to believe there is some logic to my wild inconsistency, but it escapes me.

    I've never left my warm-up phase. At least that's what I tell everyone.

    my play is garbage either first thing in the morning or when I'm on my way to sleep.

    That said, yeah, I often need a few rounds when I enter multiplayer because I'm a baddie who likes the +2 seconds badge so I'm used to the larger times. Or, I'm aware of this and take off the badge and play a round or two in endless :p

    I usually start fine, but do worse as the dungeon drags on.
