    That is why my best weapon in video games and competitive speaking is anticipating. If you can get autistic enough to "feel the flow" (say: the same thing in a poker game or blackjack, if you can calculate the possible remaining cards). I for one know when I'm playing a game whenever it's shifting. Say you usually defend a point and everyone comes from the front but for some reason there's less enemies in front for a longer period of time then you'd know they're going to flank. (Moira main speaking, also applying for Lucio) If you're a healer and you see the opposing team advancing as hell you know your team is having a hard time so you jump into massive healing without even having to look at your teammates health, but if your own teammates are starting to advance you know they're in good shape and are ready for the offensive so it's time to strike. Also, one of the reason why I despise the next update, having to lock in one of the roles (healer/DPS/tank) I can't change the direction of the flow properly. I just gave a great example of a healer's perspective but I'm MOSTLY A DPS MAIN, out of my 11 main heroes (Pharah, Moira, D.Va, Hanzo, Orisa, Lucio, Ashe, Mei, Sombra, Widowmaker, the old Symmetra and somewhere in between Sigma(if he's good as I think he'll be)) 7 of them are DPS heroes and I absolutely know when my team is lacking of DPS power: when the team can't advance at all, are just stuck together in a bunch and can't capture the point. That is when I would literally switch from Moira to Pharah and have my best friend switch from Ashe to Zenyatta, lowering the healing factor a bit and raising the damage factor to kick 'em in the balls hard enough so they don't have time to fight back before we set up defenses strong enough. Don't ask me to switch from Moira to Zenyatta and ask my friend to move from Ashe to Pharah, I personally suck with Zenyatta because he's not a hero I'd get in the playstyle (unless you want to see a mindless Zenyatta charge in front of his team) it's not in my instincts to stay back while my friend has that instinct way more stronger to stand back and let me handle it.

    In MOBAS that isn't true... and overwatch is almost a MOBA.
    Like winston, i mean


    this video made me wanna play tf2


    Overwatch in eSpors? laughable... it has to be VIEWER FRIENDLY!! like source mods, or mobas. i actually dont like mobas, but there is no doubt that they are viewer friendly. in overwatch, you have no idea wtf is going on half the time if youre playing the game. if theyll make eSports for overwatch, they cant do it live, it just wont work. you NEED editing to make it clear for the viewers. pubg is also like that, but its different. the map is too big and there are too many players to make it live and give everyone enough screentime!!

    Reaction times mean almost nothing in eSports. The thing that causes pros to be pros is their ability to think about the overall/macro state of the game in a few seconds or less. Take it from a lucio player on an eSports team that is undefeated currently

    biggest issue i have with esports culture is my own fear that they may cause more developers to shift to mp only games (money reasons probably). And possibly leave the singleplayer story driven puzzle adentures I love love love. Also if most become mp then that can harm the modability of the game (because of no ability to play offline or alone on private servers where its possible to avoid getting banned or such)

    prediction is what makes the difference... each actions of people are like a zip file of possibilities, you just unzip and act ahead. that is how i got negative results on a reaction test. predicting the exact moment it would let me click! click before and you fail, click after and it takes time. so i predicted when it would unlock and (yes failed 10 to 1 by clicking ahead) clicked exactly on it. the process it used probably used one data address and during the math to reset to 0, the time it waited in negative was the time i got for a result!
    tho predicting some thing in a game is WAY MORE EASY AND SANE "AND" DOABLE! by knowing this you also control your opponents with your actions to make them do things that favors your win! (shoot left to make him dodge right while aiming right making him align his head on your crosshair... totally abusing their "reflexes".)
