anyone else notice similar stuff?

I'm guessing a combination of luck and slightly lowered stress level. I'm guessing many more and you'd be better off playing sober but stressed ;).

Lol you peaked at two.

Maybe you should keep two for whenever you are playing.

Computer games too eh? Interesting. I know it has this effect on pool and bowling (me and a mate once worked out the optimum, based on Carling, was 2.85 pints) but this is new.

It might be because the decreased awareness the alcohol causes filters out distractions, as well as the increased confidence initially improving your decisiveness - until you have a smidge too much and start typing "frunk" instead of "drunk" and not noticing.:D

It is a phenomenon that I have noticed in the past and it holds true with all sorts of games.

I used to love playing Starcraft drunk, I always did so much better as instead of tring to decide what I should be doing I simply got on with my build order and played.

I've noticed this too.

My Dead or Alive Ultimate skills are way better after one or two beers. Unfortunatly it's a pretty short buzz. It usually only last half an hour tops.

I find that after a couple drinks, my CS skills go up considerably, then down again after a couple more drinks... then back up if I'm hung over the next morning!

Strange thing, that :eyebrows:.
