    Your videos are so great. I love how detailed your mercy guides are. I saw you play a lot of Zen on your smurf, I think it’d be awesome if you made an equally awesome Zen guide!

    Refreshing to see a top gamer that is actually good looking lol. Every time i see pro matches it looks like they all haven’t left their mom’s basements, exercised, or shaved their necks since Blockbuster was around. No homo tho 😉 lol. Also great content and great vids breh.

    Your videos aren’t too dense. It’s just that most OW content creators’ videos are void of insight and useful tips. Don’t sell yourself short.

    Being an amazing Mercy/support healer means nothing if your DPS and tanks are garbage. Once you get out of elo hell (mid plat and lower) you can really keep a team together as a support.

      If you’re a better support than your opponents’ supports, you can still carry very hard. And I’ve done it too, with 80-95% winrates from silver through master on lucio, symmetra, and Ana. Yes, if your DPS and tanks are complete garbage then you won’t be able to win… but that only happens maybe 20% of the time. The rest of the games you will often be facing vs. those terrible DPS and tank players, so then you can stomp! You just gotta try to win those close games to squeeze out a 60-70% winrate. Very possible with any hero, including support.

      Blinky I respect your feedback and thank you for the reply, however I feel that in elo hell I get paired up with trolls/throwers or garbage DPS that insta lock and blames others rather than switching. Maybe I just have really bad luck with solo que. Personally I would love to train with you and your crew for next season. I can’t stand getting paired up with trolls/throwers anymore and getting steam rolled =3=

      Jeniko yes, you’ll have trolls, throwers, and leavers. Everyone does, including your opponents. They will be on your opponents team more often than your team (6 out of 11 chance opponents, 5 out of 11 chance yours). You can get unlucky streaks for a few days in a row but overall it’s good for you. It’s also out of your control and the more you focus on that, the less you’re focusing on improving, and you really should just try to work on what you actually have control over, which is yourself

    It’s amazing that the most concise and articulate videos on Overwatch conecepts all come from support mains. Huh…

      It’s our job to have good gamesense and awareness. It’d be off if that weren’t the case.

    Sometimes a good Mercy rez is the only way to get the rest of my team to group up.

    That seems too much to be bothering with. To me it feels like fast and good decision making that pro players are good at is almost like a gift. Sure those pro players worked hard an played a lot but it seems like they’re just destined to be able to gain that decision making skill. I cannot even decide simple things in real life and even though gaming should improve that I never saw an improvement in decision making anywhere especially games. I see so many mistakes of mine mid game and yet I never get to fix them.

      WhattheDesignsâ„¢ | SELTEN INTROS sorry to hear that! a ton of people have told me they’ve tried my recommendations and tips and have climbed SR very quickly and are having more fun.

      I’m not promising you can get to 4500, but this is what you do to improve. question your decisions, prioritize what decisions are important, and theorize the solutions. you don’t get better just through magic!

      Blinky what should I do if I often hesitate way too much to make any decision and then end up not doing anything?

    Your videos are so so helpful, my mercy play has really improved thanks to your tips! I’d love to see a similar guide to Ana, if you’re able to

    honestly, It’s nice to show your face for explaining thing clearly , unlike some of the tutorials, just show their unrelated outplay game-play all the time and without any edit and describe.

    Anyway, subscribed, keep it up
