    Have you ever seen a TSM "scrim"? They are some of the campiest players lol. They set up 4 1x1 towers and only move and engage when needed (mostly circle). Now Daequan will definitely be the first one out of there, but high level late game fortnite is pretty campy in general. I personally like Hamlinz.

    To my knowledge Ninja was known for his aggressive playstyle. When the debate of best player was between Myth and him, Myth was the builder and more defensive player and Ninja was super aggressive.

    No, because I was a dumb kid who would love anything given to him haha. Mystic Heroes!
  4. Yea, I do think Riot does a good job with it. Major changes in the offseason. Minor changes that do affect meta balance do occur during the season, but teams are given a couple of weeks to learn the game.
  5. Does anyone follow the Overwatch League? What are your guys opinion about the pros playing on an old patch? This might get better traction in the OW thread, but I think it relates to esports as a whole. For those who don't know, OWL is currently in a small break and in this break this reworked Hanzo and changed his Scatter Arrow into Storm Arrow (like rapid fire full charged shots I think). By the time the league starts up again the Hanzo will have been live for a couple of weeks (I believe), but OWL will run on an old patch pre-storm arrow. The stage lasts about 1-2 months I think. So storm arrow will have been out for like 3 months before it ever sees pro play. Right now Storm Arrow is also considered OP and they don't change patches mid-season. I personally think it's dumb. One of the best aspects of esports is being able to play the game they are playing with relative ease. Hell, if you are good enough, you may even play the game with them. At the same time, games have to remain relevant by implementing patches. So if pro play and standard play start to differentiate too much, it will lose one of the factors that makes esports special.
  6. It's really hard to hate on Riot honestly. They aren't perfect and they don't really go above and beyond TOO much, but they really rarely mess up. Compared to Blizzard, yikes sometimes lol.
  7. @Mossburg I'm watching the WCS Challenger NA series and holy crap. What a clown show. Masa has proxyed in 10 straight matches against Scarlett and Neeb lol. As a life long terran fan, I'm so upset that I'm rooting for the protoss player against a terran.

    For people who play Reaper, do you hold down the shoot or do individuals? I tend to hold, but I feel like it just makes me miss shots lol.
  9. Borderlands 3

    Not at all, I hated that lol. Just do what they have been but step it up another level. Maybe I didn't play the other characters enough (probably the real problem lol), but some abilities seemed kinda boring. Like Athena was boring to me until I got her Melee reset, then it was super fun.
  10. Borderlands 3

    I didn't have a great time with BL1, but my situation was weird. I played a crap ton of BL2 as the Siren and Presequel as Athena and they were really fun. I hope they develop good original powers that really differentiates them. One of the things that REALLY disappoints me with Destiny 1/2 is the powers are super lackluster. BL is decent, but I would love for them to go even further in the powers.
  11. Fortnite

    Guys! I got top 10 and 2 kills in my fourth game! Would have gotten a 3rd kill, but those stupid stones that make your jump floaty helped the guy avoid my rocket lol. I only really tried the game because my brother wanted to try it. I'm not a huge fan of playing it myself. It's a little slow for my liking. Still really enjoy watching it.

    I feel like he meant aiming bloom? Like a replacement for recoil? Not sure.

    Lol, I'm pretty sure the Mostly Walking guys spent like an hour plus on one sudoku and they were streaming it lol. Does it have other kinds of puzzles though? The last game was basically finding pieces to do puzzles lol. They weren't as bad as "Do a sudoku" but yea. I wonder if those puzzles were always just a part of the Nancy Drew games.
  14. Worst Game Mechanics

    I honestly hate the RNG aspect of lootboxes the most. Nothing is more annoying than playing a game for an hour or so and get absolute crap. COD4 started a fairly cool trend of rewarding players for doing anything positive. It allowed players that aren't as good to find a spot they can still help the team and feel like they made progress. I remember trying to earn tags and skins and using all the guns to beat the challenges. Now I just play OW and hope that the 4 discs pop up gold, when 90% of the time you won't even get a purple.
  15. Far Cry 5

    The game is glitchy as heck. I can literally fall through the map on purpose lol. I played with a friend and if we ever had problems, it was just doing something else or restarting. I don't know if there is a specific problem with that quest as I didn't have any troubles with it in two playthroughs.
