Pass the ball to the open receiver. You had two chance within the first 30 seconds. Marauder/Warrior at the 11 second mark, and the same guy is open again at the 27/28 second mark.
Not to mention failing at intercede.

and where is the rest of your fail team? Clearly not clearing out all those guys holding you in place throughout the video. probably off on the side 3 on 1ing some guy who's laughing his butt off at being able to keep three simpletons busy away from the ball.

Seriously, outside of the healer, the rest of your team should be embarrassed at that pathetic display of teamwork. You literally forced your way through their entire team the last 15 second of the clip.

Nothing wrong with the game, only things wrong with your own inability to hit the pass button to the open receiver mid way through the video, and the rest of your team's inability to clear space for you with CC.

Don't blame the game because you can't complete a pass 20 meters away, or conversely, the rest of your non-healing support team sucks at huttball.

Don't blame the game because you are all terrible.
You call him a dimwit, but I guess you're brain is just overloading too much from your higher level of understanding to realize that if he were to pass it off that squishy carnage sentinel would have been put through the exact same hell Myrm was, except he wouldn't have survived. Please try to think over what you post before you post it, and apply a little critical thinking to whats going on in the match before you blindly criticize others, and wind up looking clueless. Then again I guess a pro like you wouldn't have been susceptible to those roots though. POT 5 seems to have the best trolls lately. I'll give you guys that.

Islander, his healers were behind him. BEHIND. If he'd passed to Mallo instead of interceding to him at the beginning, Mallo would've been violated and poked with sharp pointy objects by the respawn in short order. The healers could not have reached Mallo in time to save him.

By the time he (edit to clarify: Myrmio) gets out of his first stunlock, Mallo was swarmed by the spawn so an interception would've been very likely.

He arguably could've passed to Sabina (full health) at one point, but Sabina dropped down so that pass would've been incomplete. Mallo was at half health with a bunch of enemy leapers in the pit waiting to jump to him had Myrmio passed to him.

Did I mention that I was in vent with him at the time so he KNEW I would be coming into the pit to keep him up?

But hey, let's not let this interfere with Islander's Monday morning quarterbacking. Monday morning quarterbacking is FUN!

Carnage sentinel? Funny, I thought you were Imperials.

Still, that squishy marauder has, for all I know, predation, undying rage, and his cc breaker all available. Doesn't exempt him from being roped by a trooper back into the pit. Yeah, he'd be screwed then. Otherwise, he scores if he's not terrible.

Of course, if he doesn't - and you KNOW this somehow, then yeah, passing would be pointless.

I played pub side the majority of my dual wielding days, and recently moved imp side. Get the terminology mixed up, sue me. Hopefully a pro like you would get the point, but I'm beginning to think thats too far of an assumption for me to make.

Predation, undying rage, and cc breakers would not have saved that marauder who was barely hanging on to his life as it is. Did you not watch the video to see what the tank was put through? How many times his resolve bar was whited? He used his CC breaker, and that didn't help him. Again, post something actually constructive and relevant to the video rather than troll please.


^ and LOL well put Andy.

Yeah, not sure what Sabina was thinking when he dropped down, but hey, mistakes happen, we all make them.

and no, obviously if the guy is certain he's going to be safe with the ball no matter what, of COURSE you keep it then.

Monday morning QBing is almost as fun as QQing about CC's in this game

I'm sorry maybe next time I should ask him in ops chat if he has all of those available CC breaker will work on one stun/root, what will he do next? Predation doesn't free you from stuns/roots. Undying rage would have given him 5 seconds of immunity. I had to tank that ball for over a minute. I know people think maras/sents are OP but they really aren't.

anything else coach?

POT 5 players have "leet" marauders who can pop guarded for 1 minute.
