I never play with sound on.
I'm way better than what my Rank says. Actually if i want to, i can get to Rank <20
How would being deaf influence it? Idk, some people listen at the sound it makes when somebody sends a line.
Actually there are chairs and other devices that have an vibration plate.
You still can "feel" the sound, as in means of vibrations.
Being deaf shouldn't keep you away from getting good imo.
Always good to see new players :)
The sound makes absolutely no difference in this game. I almost never played with it on. I actually intentionally tried a few times to see if i got faster from the music and the "motivational" sounds that comes once in a while, but it really does absolutely nothing.
Good luck becoming great.
