Bro if you get depressed for losing at a Smash Bros tournament I can't even imagine how hard life will be for you later.

Depression is an actual mental illness, that is diagnosed by diplomated people, and everything but a light subject.
I'd suggest you stop using that word for everything and nothing.

1: The word you really mean is demotivated, depressed is like a suicide type beat

2: Most first tourneys are a complete bloodbath, you'll get better with time.

If you're a beginner, you should maybe learn your character's strengths & weaknesses & counterplay. If I may, what character do you main? I might be able to recommend you a video if I you tell me. From there, practice some bread & butters. I trust you understand what that means...

Also think about what you did wrong. Did you SD a couple times? DI horribly causing you to die unreasonably early often? Were you playing more aggressively than you should have been? Were you playing too laid back & giving up space? And then try to improve on that.
Assuming this was a local minor tournament, you'll probably face the same people over & over. Try to learn their characters & playstyles, & counterpick the shit out of them next time.

I should also step back & ask if this was a casual tournament or full on competitive(3 stocks, no items, etc.).

And lastly, find some people to practice with. I unironically don't know much about Smash scrims, but it's done all the time in Splatoon/other competitive games so...

Anyway, you will occasionally have horrible bracket runs. Don't sweat it. You've got plenty of time to improve.

I also get the slight feeling that most people here only play Smash on a casual level, so you may not get great tips. Try Twitter, Reddit, etc. Join the community!

Oh, & try to find a pro player for your mains on Youtube. 9/10 says they'll have some video on how to play the character.

Coincidentally, Hbox just released a vid about some top players for every single character in the game. Not everyone of them does Youtube or Twitch, but you can find their sets online & watch those for free on Youtube. Just look 'em up.
Keep in mind that this is his opinion, but it's good for learning top players if you're new.

EDIT: More stuff: You don't need to borderline copy everything that pro does, because they're playing at a much higher level where baiting & predicting are important. Tbf, I haven't played comp since Sm4sh, things could have changed, but lower down you don't need to be doing allat.

Find out what your character's archetype is(grappler, rush down, etc.) so you know what works best(and also what you're opponents might be expecting your character to do:p)

Lastly, & I cannot stress this enough, this is not online where you fish for cool clips with no consequences. There's money on the line. Combos look cool, & are what everybody looks at, but neutral is easily the most important part of the game. Of every game. Yes, the part where the combatants are throwing out a couple attacks & empty jumping about is the most important part of the game. Why? Well, when every stage is small as shit, the less breathing room your opponent has, the more desperate they may become(this is low level, a little higher they won't get desperate that easily) & more importantly, the less space they have to clip you. If you're seriously looking for tips, go onto Youtube or Reddit.

Ngl I might sound like a snowflake saying this but this is my honest thoughts, as someone struggling with depression, alcoholism, masochism and domestic abuse the fact you're saying you're depressed over the most menial of things feels lowkey offensive, and I'm not the only one here with actual struggles against depression or any other mental struggle

You're definitely exaggerating, it's fine to be annoyed and disappointed over that but the world isn't going to collapse on itself. Heck, it's only a first tournament, if you keep playing you'll get better and better.

I struggle with depression and various other mental disorders that I prefer not naming and although I didn't got offended in any way since I'm sure it's just an immature kid who didn't realize his exaggerated choice of words, I agree it could be perceived as offensive, so please @lance4-_ don't misuse words like this because you never know who could get hurt in the future.

Get ready, this is a long one. :s

Recently, Chess Grandmaster Daniil Dubov was in a Blitz Chess Championship against his opponent in match 11, Ian Nepo. They decided to jump their knights around the board in an attempt to draw to gain 0.5 points, as opposed to 1 point for winning, due to the 50 move rule. The organiser of the match thought the moves were pre-determined and decided to give both players 0 points as a penalty. When it came to the results, Chess Grandmaster Magnus Carlsen won the title of Chess Blitz World Champion for the 7th time, finishing with 16 points. Who placed 2nd? Daniil Dubov with 15.5 points, losing the World Champion title due to a single match.

I've played many tournaments myself, mainly featuring in one of the most competitive racing games of all time, like Mario Kart or SBB, rhythm game tournaments, I've played live with thousands of people watching too. Failed right when victory is in sight, I've dropped down far from Division 2 - wanting to quit, but I kept playing with my head up.

With that said, just because you lost in a tournament doesn't make you eligible to make extreme statements such as being depressed. It's kind of pathetic to hear someone being 'depressed' because they lost in a fucking game against someone and cry about it on the MKPC Forums. Especially when there are many people who have experienced much worse and having deteriorating mental health.

TLDR: Losing in a video game doesn't make you depressed, or the right to make such an extreme statement about just losing a simple game. If you're crying over a tournament, you can do better, think of what you can improve on. But above all, you need to be aware of what you're saying, as your words can significantly harm others.
