Did a video analysis of a friend; Grav. Broken into two parts, plus a brief closing comments video, due to YouTube restrictions on 15 min videos. Hopefully others can benefit from it. Also if you would like a video reviewed feel free to get in touch.

wow, I think I may have learned something new, though not new really, just never knew how to use them cool downs, and the range part, never really dawned on me, how important they are
I really should look for more videos

thanks for sharing, your Analysis

That was the hope, that others would learn from it as well as the subject pilot. If you're able to record your flying and want a video reviewed I'd be happy to do that for you.

This biggest mistake they made was choosing the inferior battlescout on the ship selection bar over the superior battlescout right next to it.

I'm able to record, but
I deal with a lot of Latency and Lag (part of the time), mostly depends , if there is only half the slots filled or every slot is.
My damage score reflects when I am dealing with those issues, I'll be lucky to break 15k damage, which is half of my average damage , frustrating when I see my damage low like that, sometimes I barely break 6k damage, but then again, it' may just be as hard to hit me as well

One thing I like to comment on, was the placement of the target thingy. till I watched your commentary of one of your own games, it showed me one of my gripes, being able to see their buffs and cool-downs, glancing up trying to focus where the default spot is, sometimes got me killed.
I keep forgetting to fix that, since now I see the benefit of it's location.

I have manage to get the UI set up to be easier for me to see, more, still have issues with the effects icons, I don't think I can place'em to be easier to see., without being in the way.

watching your videos, has helped me deal with pilots such as yourself, learning how to deal with some of the tactical maneuvers you use , still need to work on that but getting better. I had noticed your approach pattern towards gunships, basically copied that, and getting more GS kills

One thing I had issues, with is quickly changing where the power is going, you seemed to do it effortlessly , only thing I could think of is like some of the anime's I've watched, you see someone typing with 20 mechanical fingers, figured you must have been surgically altar and had that done to yourself, then after many many matches, I forgot I still have thumb buttons on the mouse I could use, HUgh hugh improvement there.

yeah defiantly learning and improving, by watching your videos

Glad to be of service buddy. I learned so much from watching other people's videos. At one point I think I watched every video on Drakolich's channel. His is another channel worth watching if you haven't already, even though he hasn't updated it in some time. Now that he is back be might resume his excellent analyses videos too

As far as power management is concerned, its just practice. Most of my key binds are default. I have my up and down strafes on the mouse, along with my quick looks. But I still use F1,F2,F3 for power management. It was tricky at first but you get used to it. Even once I had power management down, I found it tricky to bank my Scout and change power modes at the same time. Something you don't really get with Strikes. At times if I am flying without feeling 100% you can still see I don't bank my Scout that well, and that is because of the speed at which you need to switch power and bank, constantly back and forth with your fingers. But again its just practice. Some days you get frustrated as things seem too hard, then the next day it just clicks and it all comes together.

When you talk about how I approach Gunships? I'm guessing you mean not coming at them head on in a straight line? That's so huge, and so simple. But so many people don't realize it. Just do an exaggerated manual barrel roll, and they can't hit you. At close range if you strafe too, it again makes you hard to hit. When you fly a Gunship, you learn what they can and can't do. This is why people should fly all classes, even if they don't like certain ships. One, they might find out they actually do like them (I used to hate Gunships) and two, you learn how to better counter them.

yeah, watch maybe all of 'em, back then, I can actually be seen in a couple of them, don't play that character any more, don't recall if it was just seeing me fly by in the camera view, of just cannon odder, but I was in it

my biggest problem using the F keys, so many times I hit the 3 key and not f3, so many unwanted Self destructs
the thumb buttons cured that, but hey even tho it's not something you said, it was something you made me think how to fix the problem

yup pretty much, it hadn't dawn on me (right away) that most gunship pilots are so tunnel vision, it is easy to just come from the side. With my UI changed to see the mini map easier, I can see someone trying to flank me, and keep an eye on victim . . er target
I am not a fan of the gun ship, only for one reason, I deal with too much latency. It's a frustrating moment, to shoot a fully charged slug , hit your target, on my screen, but they take no damage.
also think my mouse is worn, sometimes the gun fires on it's own, and I hadn't lifted a finger

I have never liked to use the F-keys for power management, because I need to move my hand to use them. I always remap them to keys closer to the space bar (C, V, B, N), where they can be conveniently reached at the same time as managing the speed booster.
