    At this point I've pretty much got everything for every character except event specific stuff and stuff like Lucio's "Floor is Lava" spray cause man am I never getting that.

    So outside of newer characters and events I generally don't pay too much attention to it.

    You mean this one? ( sorry , it took me forever and I gotta brag sometimes heh)

    I kept up on them for a long time, they just started piling up at one point cause would get quick ques and the opening animation takes forever, so I'd try and hit up the backlog get thru 1-2 , and then forget again for a while, and now it's sorta flipped and is fun watching the number grow

    Heh. Luring a team to chasing you thru you Symm turret swarm only to suddenly change places with the molten cored torb turret as they round the corner.

    also the other thread's been talking about the torb rework so here are some highlights from a game a while back that i'm still pretty proud of
    don't get me wrong, i absolutely consider torbjorn a troll pick in my hands, but generally i can make him an effective troll pick?

    here are some pointers on being the best garbageman you can be, rework or no rework:

    figure 1. your turret is more than just an extra gun

    https://youtu.be/-zrXl4mhBBY

    figure 2. baiting and juking ults

    https://youtu.be/aJF52N2xsxQ

    figure 3. always be pew pewing, don't let your turret steal all the glory

    https://youtu.be/dwdnornMOUY

    imo the secret is knowing that torb is trash and embracing it, so i hope torb reloaded finds some way to preserve that aspect of his character

    Does anyone know how I can tell what settings I should lower to stabilize my frame rate

    I'm getting about 150 normally, but sometimes it dips and I'm trying to turn off as little as possible to get it to stay above 144

    I find it better to start low and build up. Keep render at 100%, keep both texture settings at medium, then turn everything else to off or as low as you can. Then turn things up from there until you start seeing drops.

    All the shaders and lighting things are the heaviest hitters afaik.

    Also why are they starting Pine again?

    First , do a repair installation , recent patch caused this problem for a lot of folk, and repair installation fixes it for most, if that doesn't do it, try the settings listed in the first part of this post

    I understand NYXL struggling with the meta shift since JJonak is basically a Zen onetrick, but this is just depressing.

    Hanamura just now was a pretty good example of why not having assault in the first three maps was a mistake - some teams excel (no pun intended) on them.

    But we'll see.

    2 payloads in the first three
    3 payloads in the first five

    He's not, really. It's that everyone wants three dps on many maps so it's a safer pick to have hog in his place since he can get reliable picks and keep himself alive.

    Re: Grand Finals matchup
    I wonder if the first-round bye might have been a mixed blessing. Sure there’s no guarantee they would have won if it had been an 8-Team first round, but it definitely seemed like New York in particular came in a bit cold, and the extra dozen or so maps worth of experience in the new meta was a big boost for Philly.

    I have a feeling that next season with the planned expansion teams we will just see an 8-tean playoffs

    While that's part of it, I think some of it is also that
    Philly is just a rough stylistic matchup for NY. They're hyper aggro and unpredictable, and they had a lot of fights where they just kept chasing down NY instead of letting them reset, which stole away a lot of time. NY would try to turn the tide by setting up game-winning ults, and Philly would just spread out and win 1v1s.

    A trap is for fish: when you've got the fish, you can forget the trap. A snare is for rabbits: when you've got the rabbit, you can forget the snare. Words are for meaning: when you've got the meaning, you can forget the words.
