    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

    Dear Austin
    When I see Overwatch gets a Game theory video I get really excited.

    I know it's not your fault, but you got my hopes up.

    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".)

    This was really great thank you. One question and i think i know the answer, just want to be 100%. I went to that human benchmark game you have in this video, (the one where you click when the red turns to green and it records your reaction time.) and i played it, but ive had a bit of vodka and id say my avg was about 260ms. If i was sober would my avg reaction time be a bit faster? I feel like yes right? cause alcohol slows down your reaction time, correct?
