Blog update 6/21/16

I apologize for the lack of consistency in keeping my blog updated.  I want to work on this for everyone who uses this as a resource.  I am going to give you guys my honest goals as well as work from the last week, and the upcoming week. I hope that this clarity will help keep you guys on the same page about my content and when its coming out.


What I have done in the last two weeks

Casting

ESL Go4 Cup #2

SuperStarLeague: EU Premier League Season 1

ESL Go4 Cup #3

Stratwatch


Summary: This episode will be going back to the basics and look at the core mechanics of First Person Shooters that you will need to work on mastering to improve your game. As well this episode will look at the more ethereal concepts like: Positioning and situational awareness; these concepts take time and studying to develop a large enough conditional understanding of the game.


Summary: We finally look at Kings Row. This episode highlights how to defend on Point A and streets phase of kings row. We look at the previous patches compositions as well as the new patches. Specifically we look for the differences that are present on Point A defense; and for streets phase we focus on how to regain tempo and defend with Pharah.



Blog

Most of you are probably here for this. I am going to be honest that this has been lower on priority list in the last 4 weeks because I feel as though casting and video creation are the best ways to go about getting my ideas out there. However I feel as though this is still an important resource for you guys.  I have begun real work on the Reinhard Counter Guide and Want to say that my tentative goal is to have the counter list done with all 21 current heroes (and update previous guides with appropriate numbers) by the end of the summer.

As well I am going to start working on a guide similar to Purges: Welcome to Dota2: You Suck. I feel there are plenty of guides explaining Overwatch at every level, but not a guide that strictly covers transitioning from other games and how to play in centralized read. If you have any thoughts or suggestions on this please do let me know!

Up-coming content this week






Thank you


Thank you so much everyone for the support, viewership, and readership I have received. I hope to continue to put out quality casts, reads, and analysis videos.

Stratwatch 7 is out!!




Summary: Nubris vs Teamliquid on Nepal was a very clean example of the current KotH standard composition in 1HL. As well this game displayed the key core concepts to winning King of the Hill with this composition, or one that uses Zarya. I hope this episode helps navigate these concepts with multiple examples, instancing how situational awareness and understanding the conditions of those situations improves your play on KotH maps.


If you have any feedback suggestions or ideas please let me know!

Stratwatch 6 - Shutting out the Offense (GFE's Hold against TL @ Agents Rising Lan)

Summary: This Stratwatch will cover Gale Force Esports defensive hold against Team Liquid in the Agents Rising LAN run by EsportsArena. How does Gale Force Esports hold Team liquid where other teams couldn't? What compositions do they use to do it? And what concepts can we learn from them for our own play? This episode aims to answer those very questions.



Any feedback is greatly appreciate! If you have any suggestions for topics or strategies please let me know!
