Hi so recently I've been on a bad OTB tilt mainly because the time control is pretty fast though I am a fast player myself Ive lost quite a few games because of time scrambles. My OTB before I started playing these tournaments was like 1970s and now I believe ill be 1910-1920s after those 2 tournaments how do I prevent myself from tilting even more? And please excuse my grammar as I'm typing this during lunch. Thanks in advance

Don’t play fast time control events where you are one of the top seeds. Or don’t worry about your rating and just play for fun.

good idea

++ Analyse your lost games. What move cost you most time? Why did you think so long on that move? Was it the right move?
Did you lose games on time?
If not, how much time did you have left on your clock when you lost?
What do you define as a time scramble?
Bullet players play 60 moves in 60 seconds, that is 1 second per move.
Did you get into a time scramble with less than 1 second per move?
When you get into a time scramble, you have been thinking about the position for a long time. So you are in a better starting position than a bullet player.
How was your position before you got into the time scramble? Draw / won / lost?
If it was lost before the time scramble, then you did not lose because of the time scramble.

Practice your pacing. Stop thinking of the outcome and look for the best move you can find in the time you set yourself to find it.
