post #1851 of 1911

I gotta stop by a Barnes & Noble then I should be free, lol

I don't get why rez isn't like Dva's mech. Just let me shoot whoever she's rezzing in the face while it's happening, don't make me wait till it's finished.
post #1853 of 1911
Even without Rez Mercy is too good.
post #1854 of 1911
Valkyrie is just nuts.

Also I figured out how the SR system judges your performance. Its actually pretty clever.
post #1855 of 1911
I can’t decide if I want to start instalocking DPS or not. Ngl, I play a mean soldier but I always get stuck healing if I want to win. I Love Zen, and I can usually out damage our DPS with him but Mercy still has the best heals overall but I am seriously so fucking tired of playing her. I at least got to plat for the points (I need a new gold gun) (and I’ve already dropped back into gold) but I wish I could get back up to diamond. I haven’t been able to in a couple seasons. There are always too many variables, and I lose more than I gain. Oh well.

I got a lovely message yesterday from a guy we played with this weekend, Daggers. He didn’t talk in one of our games but was apparently listening....

post #1856 of 1911

I wouldn't have blacked HIS info out. Everyone needs to know what a scumbag that kid is.

habit. You’re not allowed to name and shame on reddit.
post #1858 of 1911

How did he get your personal info?!

No personal info. It’s a PSN message. He sent it after playing a game with me and Zhukov.
post #1860 of 1911

That's the PSN app on a phone.

 

Maybe switching over to Team Chat has been a terrible mistake.

 

If you desire revenge, let me know. I'm always down for vigilante justice.

 

 

 

Anyway, I've been working on this thing. I came up on a couple pieces of information that helped clarify my own thoughts on what the fuck I am doing in Competitive Mode, and why it seems to fluctuate so wildly between being fantastic and rotten.

 TL;DR : SR is based on your success or failure in 1v1 matchups against the player on the other team closest to you in skill.

 

You have to assume things work a certain way to get there, but those assumptions are fairly minor in comparison to every other proposed explanation for how the algorithm is working.

 

If that's established, then a lot of the weird stuff in how SR rises and falls makes total sense. 

post #1861 of 1911

If somebody sent me that I would be deeply rattled and disturbed for like a week.  I'm such a light weight.

Haha this is a “Same Shit, Different Day” situation for women. Especially women who game.

Come join the PC master race.  I'm not saying that stuff doesn't exist on PC of course it does, but it HAS to be less bad than console people.  I did consoles once and I'm still damaged.  Never again!

post #1864 of 1911

I dont think the net benefit from dealing with that kind of stuff is worth it, really. Especially since I am pretty sure the way SR is working means all we are really doing is carrying these people while not moving the needle too much in our rankings. 

 

 

I am more than fine with being consistent and only running comp with a 5 or 6 stack. I definitely have the roster to do that at this point, the only tricky part is coordinating times. Buuut I think the bench is deep enough at this point to make it work.

 

Me

Perl

Lexx

Amos

Soul

Staci

JohnnyReb or whatever her boyfriends name is

Kato is really good

 

and usually 3 or 4 semi-randos at any one time who are at least worth inviting if there's a spot.

 

I would invite my roommate but he needs to get better at the game.

Jesus Christ! 

 

Tbh the OW community on PC is just as fucking toxic and one of the chief reasons I stopped playing this. 

 

Thank FUUUUUUUCK Destiny 2 doesn't have a general chat.

As someone who's never used reddit, pffft. After all the juicy hatemail and deathwishes against me and my family, from years of playing online via PSN and XBL, I have absolutely no qualms about publicly shaming these tools whenever I feel arsed to do so.

ONLY IF YOU PLAY COMPETITIVE!  They WILL yell at you if you fuck up in comp.  Oh, boy do I know...

To go off on a wee tangent this does bring to mind a striking hypocrisy that bugs the fuck out of me on Reddit and elsewhere. 

 

People losing their fucking minds about Eververse and seasonal cosmetics in Destiny 2 non-stop. But Overwatch with its 20 Seasonal Events a year does the same, but WAY worse cause you can't dismantle the cosmetics you don't like for resources to buy the ones you do like, and nary a peep about it. 

 

There's this hive-mind mentality (not here but again, on reddit and elsewhere) that Blizzard can do no wrong but everyone else is horrible that is just...ugggh. Not to say D2 doesn't have flaws but so does Overwatch and then some.

Kind of my point. Wannabe e-sports stars taking this shit SO SERIOUSLY just kills the game for me. But eh, I put over 200 hours into OW and feel I got my money's worth. 

 

Crucible > All of Overwatch because Overwatch doesn't have LORD SHAXX!

 

Sorry for the derail. 

post #1870 of 1911

You are correct about that, at least.

 

LORD SHAXX is cooler than anything in any other video game ever.

post #1871 of 1911

OK I know this is lighthearted fun but Crucible over ALL of Overwatch?  Get to an epic next level of fuck.

 

Lucioball over many many things in Destiny 2, frankly.

Why not just play Rocket League then though?

 

Like I said, I don't like taking my games too seriously. Crucible is nice and casual and win or lose I have fun. The amount of rage and salt Overwatch generates? That's not fun to me and outweighs the fun I did have with the game. 

post #1873 of 1911

You're comparing 4D Star Trek chess to checkers! I'm getting tilted just talking about this!

We need to work on our casual buddy cop banter for Raid night, cause this right now is not going to cut it.

My man. Although I dont think you ever got to play the DESTINY SPACE JAM game mode which was the best thing Bungie ever did so obviously they never brought it back.

That's called pulling a Bungie right there.

But the 4D Star Trek chess has the chance of a brain damaged chimp jumping on the table and shitting diarrhea directly in my eyeballs. As fun and balanced and intricate as 4D Star Trek chess is, I'd rather play checkers due to the lack of brain damaged chimps shitting diarrhea into my eyeballs. 

 

I'm way more chilled in person and over a mic than in text so don't sweat babycakes.

Well yeah. But you also dont have to talk to the monkeys. Generally success is comp revolves around effective communication but if you're rollin 5 or 6 its not an issue.

post #1879 of 1911
I can't believe anyone plays with voice chat on. And really below diamond it doesn't matter in comp so why even listen to randos.
post #1880 of 1911

the team that communicates more effectively is the odds-on favorite to win every single time. Crucial info like "Yo the enemy reaper is behind us, watch out for Death Blossom" is often enough to secure a victory.

 

But agreed I wouldn't be on mic if I were a woman. Doesn't seem worth it.

It matters to me.
post #1882 of 1911

We had a guy the other night who was on-mic but had game audio muted "because it annoys him"

 

He ate a Rip Tire because he didn't know it was coming. We lost control of the choke point and ultimately the match.

 

I wanted to murder that kid.

post #1883 of 1911
The flanking warning type of stuff is the only thing I find useful. But a lot of that can be avoided with map awareness. Or just kill the Reaper, poor little guy.
post #1884 of 1911
And I don't mean it "doesn't matter" like I'm above the fray, I just mean auto lock your best deeps and just carry. wink.gif
post #1885 of 1911

As a support main I don't know what this means, this ..."carry". :(

post #1886 of 1911
I used to main support, you're a stronger man then I good sir.
post #1887 of 1911

Yeah, but he's a Lucio main so it doesn't really count.  :D

post #1888 of 1911
I play Mercy/Torb more than anything else these days.
post #1889 of 1911

Overwatch League is definitely worth checking out, the production values are very impressive.

post #1890 of 1911

I was at the gym this morning watching hockey highlights on Sportsnet like I always do during cardio, and they started playing Overwatch footage for like ten minutes.  I was baffled.  Can you watch this stuff through the Blizzard launcher?

post #1891 of 1911

I believe its only on Twitch right now.

 

I suspect OWL will be the first e-sports deal that regular people pick up on. League of Legends and all that crap looks dorky af, but a lot of the highlights from that first night were fairly understandable without too much context.

post #1892 of 1911
I am slightly obsessed with OWL right now.

You can watch it on the website, on the app (the app is great), and then they are also streaming it on twitch. You can even go back and watch the VODs from past matches and even from the preseason games.

I am super impressed with everything involved with production. It all just looks fucking fantastic. I want to see it live haha
post #1893 of 1911

Ah word there is an app? I will check it out.

Yeah, I like that you can track your teams for updates but I really like that you can hide the scores in case you don’t wanna be spoiled.


Also - what’s your team, Daggers?

post #1895 of 1911

lets try to coordinate a stack this weekend, my experience thus far this season tells me its not worth the effort if we don't have between 4-6 people in-chat.
