More videos to come in the near future (final's week is almost over ).

~5/8/13




Long overdue but, I now have some recording privileges.

The videos need to be watched in 1080p.

They do not have special effects. No special music. They are full length matches with music I was listening to in the background.



They are just some videos I recorded over the span of playing 3-4 hours last night. Just some regular matches on POT5. In the future I will put captions and notes in the video as it goes along; pointing out things that are important and things that I am thinking about and noticing as the game progresses. Without notes you likely will not have a clue what I'm doing at times, so expect notes in these videos in the future. Also expect voice recording in the future as well.

So not many details right now, just check out the 3-4 videos. You might learn something.

- I would suggest watching "Civil War - How You Should Play the Game" first. (laggy for the first 15 seconds but it clears up.)

Gear is full 3/4 partisan with no augs, not min/maxed at all, no stim. Deception spec - 3/40/3

Is there any particular reason why open with lightning from stealth?
You need to believe in things that aren't true. How else can they become?

Haha, that depends man. Point out the video and the time, and I can explain to you what I'm thinking when I do that.

Civil War - Assassin - How You Should Play the Game, it's the second thing you do. Mezz one, pop Recklessness and then open with lightning. When you return later to help defend, you do it again.

Also you forgot to buff up after you died the first time. I can see that fighting was at the bottom of your to-do list for the wz, but still...

At the beginning of that game -

1) We were outnumbered at mid, severely.
2) I was the ONLY person stopping about 5 people from capping - for about 20 seconds or so.

I was just stopping them from capping. I popped recklessness because it gives me a 30m range to interrupt that guy. Much more effective than running all the way towards him, yes? Recklessness is essentially always off CD since 2.0; so I use it coupled with force lightning 24/7 knowing that it will be off CD again as soon as I die so I do not use Recklessness sparingly.

As for the second time I used it -

It was not the conventional optimal way for starting out a 1v1.

But I did not want to let him get anymore of the cap so I:

1) Set up phase walk
2) Opened on him
3) Popped a couple of moves on him and led him AWAY from my phase walk position while saving one of my recklessness charges
> he had used his force charge on me because I opened on him from a distance
> I was able to use phase walk and get him with a full Force lightning from 30m
> if my knockback had not glitched; he barely would have touched me

There are multiple multiple ways to start a 1v1 with a lot of different conditions. I couple my phase walk with my 30m force lightnings on certain classes because it is highly effective. You won't see many people doing this.

Definitely an interesting use for the Phase Walk, I'm still very awkward with the ability, and use it mostly to control objectives.

I learned you're supposed to stay in stealth for the first whole minute of a pvp video and just watch while your team mates try to defend a node and let them all die.

But I'm a pvp noob.
grats on being *that guy* though

Phase Walk is an incredibly multi-dimensional ability. Do not let people tell you it is only useful for X, Y, and Z situations. In my videos and videos to come you'll see me use it for all kinds of different situations that you would never think about.

If that is all you saw; I understand. I will say that I will be providing captions in my videos along with voice commentary. It will help people like yourself to understand everything that is going on in my mind; this footage is on a lot higher level than you might be able to fathom so I doesn't surprise me if some of the stuff I do is questionable. I promise that I always have a reason for what I am doing.

These videos were thrown together over 3-4 hours; they are not perfect and I have not put time into captions and commentary as of yet. This is my first time recording videos I needed to see what kind of feedback I could possibly get and what the quality would be like, etc etc. Thanks for watching- never said anyone was a PVP noob. But most people are, are they not?
