    No the other characters are bots, but obviously the bots don't really cooperate normally. I guess you could have six computers and duct tape their keyboards to yours though!

    Not bots, you can literally attach other players together so one player moves but they all can aim and fire independently. It's been done in the workshop before but only in a very hacky way, now it's official. They also added the ability to control a player's movement programmatically.

    That was absolutely disgusting. He dominated the game in a way you basically don’t see in pro play. On widow. Against linkzr, who is one of the best anti-widow widows in the league. Against double shield.

    May melee is shaping up to be special. Heck, even Vancouver played ok.

    42% widow crit rate

    not accuracy

    42% of his shots were scoped widow headshots

    almost 20 elims / 10 minutes

    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.

    42% scoped crit accuracy! WHAT. 35% is about borderline for cheating. Against OWL players and not randos. Poor Linkzr was actually playing widow pretty well, at 31% scoped crit accuracy. But he just got absolutely boomed.

    I'm still pumped from watching that. Pure adrenaline.

    Man it sucks to be the Titans, three teammates and some random T2 players get thrown together with no time to prepare and people say it's proof T2 is trash compared to owl

    yeah some of the off-angles Decay was taking to get around the shields were pretty nuts. he paid for it a couple times when echo got the drop on him, but for the most part he was off in no man's land just completely popping off

    That's what made that performance so utterly insane I think. Houston were selling out to stop him, they switch to a counter widow and Echo was constantly headhunting for him, plus running double barriers with a baptiste. Like there's no opportunities there for a widow.

    It would've been enough just for him to stay alive and demand disproportionate attention. And instead he just kept dominating.

    Watching Houston was like playing the game and your team gets 99-0 reverse sweeped, just watching your team get too cute and then fuck it all away. Double shield is still shit.

    Man, I know I shouldn't expect much from people in Uprising games, but every single one has had an Echo, and literally none of them have any idea what they're doing. Not even the basics. Not just that you can ult teammates in the mode, but like... using the laser as soon as elites spawn, flying straight into walls, killing themselves constantly.

    Nope, not this time, lol.

    Also, the stats here show why overall damage is deceptive for a hero like Widow. Decay wasn't doing bulk dmg that fed ult charge without leading to kills. Instead, his dmg led directly to kills, either through a solo headshot, or by bursting a tank low so someone else could quickly finish them off.

    It's something lower tier DPS could learn from. Junk damage builds your ult, sure, but it also builds support ult (see: Jjonak getting an extra 25% from healing Hotba between fights from a turret). Given support ults are often stronger than DPS ults (not always, but usually), it's often a bad exchange. Smaller amounts of focused damage leading directly to kills matters far more.

    I had to read this twice before realizing you weren't talking about the Boston Uprising game lol. Must still be half asleep...

    Easiest way to spot a dogshit genji is if he dashes into the enemy team to engage rather than as an escape. It tells me at the start of the game that either their, or our, genji is gonna be useless.

  • CoinageCoinage Heaviside LayerRegistered User regular
    The dash resets on kill so you can dash in though

    Yeah. It's a great way to confirm kills.

    Real way to spot bad Genji: when he goes nano blade and gets 0 kills.

    Kudos Shanghai, I saw that C9 skimming through the TV waking up and then left to do some Home Improvement and come back and you reverse sweeped.

    That’s not an engage, that’s a kill confirmation. Engage is to start the battle, right after posturing is done.

    It happens if there’s a trance or beat with peel. I don’t blame genjis for good counterplay.

    I blame teammates for mistakes and bad decisions that are preventable.

    I played like 10 games as support last night after being awake for over 25 hours and... actually won a bunch of games! Then went DPS for the last 2 and won s'more!

    I should always play when so profoundly exhausted that I meet the definition of complete intoxication.

    All cats, from Tailor Swift to Judi Dench know the Way of the Nap.

    But it is not my way. The sacred Way of The Brain-Addled Amnesiac. Praise be unto caffeine.

    I'm playing tank, defending Hollywood, and I'm coming back from spawn. It sounds like we're really getting chewed up out there, and my brother - not too far in front of me - calls out that he's gettin' chewed up by this Tracer. So I say I'm on her - dealing with Tracers my rank is no biggie for me - and she just obliterates me, like I would a Zarya in one of my vids. She was absolutely on another level.

    They blow us off first point, so in streets I switch to ball and we only slow it a little. Third point though, I can suddenly play ball. I'm shootin' this Tracer off our supports, I'm picking their Bap and their Ana, I'm rolling the Tracer off my team to transition into the piledriver that kills her and gettin' Play of the Game ohhh it was sweet.

    We lost, but that taste of hamster was delicious.

    For some reason, in my head, @surrealitycheck , you've always been a GM.

    Eh. Most are pretty simple as long as your team comp isn't idiotic, but one weak link makes them exponentially harder, and two weak links can be impossible. Which are you having trouble with?

    Is Brig's stun hitbox lingering way longer than it should a new thing? I swear I would have noticed it before now, and I've run into it fucking up and stunning multiple people 2-3 times tonight.

  • ChanceChance Registered User regular
    I guess all these years of saying "come to PS4, we don't get throwers and assholes like you do on PC" have come back to haunt me.

    Last three days I'd say, my teams have been inundated with throwing and leaving tanks and supports and some absolutely-crystal-clear throwers. Moiras who actually have "no" bound for when teammates use the "I need healing!" com line.

    I have reported and avoided-as-teammates more people in the last 72 hours than I did in the last six months. Fuckin' events, man!

    The "no" voice line is one of the dumbest things they could have introduced for the wheel. "Push forward" = warranted, "Need Help" = solid, but who thought "No" wouldn't be spammed forever in a game? The same person who thought Bridget, Baptiste and Sigma were fine day 1 as is?
