    I am re-watching this and I would really like a season 2. I know they tease it, but I am looking forward to maybe having guests come in and offer advice and building on their great teamwork. Or I am being delusional and just really like these guys when they are doing well.

    Yo, Bruce. From one support player to another, you shouldn't try to encourage people to die so you can use your rez when you're playing Mercy. Especially since they've changed her ult! You need to practice more being in the middle of the fight, staying mobile. It'll get you ult charge faster.

    I think that Bruce's negativity really drags the team down. I know how frustrating Overwatch can be, especially when you are on a losing streak, but Bruce really takes it to a whole new level. It can be hard to be positive but I think it would ultimately make the experience more enjoyable and you would be able to learn from a loss more if you tried to be more positive. Adam is really good about being positive, even if a team fight is going poorly. While Bruce was complaining overall about how everyone was playing, Adam was specifically calling out people and complimenting their plays and just being positive. I think a really important thing for Bruce to work on is his attitude, because that can have a detrimental effect on the team. I'm not saying that it is an easy fix, but I think it is something to work on.

      idk lol. Real hard to stay positive when there's a tracer up your ass the whole game and your tanks decide to just ignore her

      I'm with meilany on this one, even the Buddha would develop a cerebral blood clot having to experience constant focus from the most annoying Tracer buzzing and zipping around him constantly killing him. Besides, when there is a player on your team who is deadlocked on playing cancer characters like Hanzo, Widowmaker, and Genji just because they think it's cool and force the team to play around their horrendous gameplay, it's all the more violently frustrating. Apart from all of that, it did seem like no matter what attitude, positive or negative, that Bruce/FH had that they were overall outmatched by the other team. Sometimes your team's just not as good as the other one and it's as simple as that, unfortunately.

      I totally understand where you are both coming from. Personally, I've gotten super burnt out on Overwatch due to the frustration of playing on a team that simply isn't as good as the other one and how often that occurs. However, I don't think that getting frustrated over a teammate picking a Hanzo or a Widowmaker should be enough to send you into negativity. However, that's another argument. I think that if the guys try to be more positive, they'll enjoy the game more, and will want to try harder the next match. In the end of this video, Adam wanted to keep playing despite the losses while Bruce wanted to stop. I just think when you're negative, it hurts your gameplay as well as the team. But like I said, Overwatch does not make it easy to stay positive.

    I think the biggest problem is lawrence he should change characters cause rein doesn't fit is play style he should switch to  Dva of Zarya, I lean more towards the Zarya pick cause her ult like reins is a good team fight ult.Also he needs to wait for his  team he always pushes in by himself, when instead of saying lets regroup and push, he goes im going to get on the point and no one is here.

    Overwatch is a game of team fights and if lawrence is rein he needs to be the head of the fight.

    How do you guys suggest I get from gold to plat? I'm not quite good enough to carry on my own and for every once i get put with a competent team, I have 3/4 games where they don't have a clue what they're doing or what characters to pick. I rarely have an even game, it's usually a landslide either way, the matching system is shite!

      Honestly finding a group of at least three core people who you can trust to carry their own weight is huge. That way you have a better chance of not having to be in that situation of you only doing work. Ideally though finding a group of 6 who work well together is your best bet. Also, I don't know who you play or how many characters you play but don't feel bad to pick who you are good at (being a one trick). If it gets results, do it.

      Yeah I've got 4/5 characters who i'd say im really solid with then a couple of others who i can be okay with at competitive level. I mainly play them but there's times when we've been defending and we have no tanks or healers so i feel like i don't have a choice..... 


      Yeah the main problem is I only have one other guy in my friends group that can hold his own in competitive, well I have another but he just doesn't play that often :/ Nearest I've been is 40 points from Plat but can't make it over the finish line. And lately people seem to keep quitting on me, some of them even games too, not like we were getting hammered!

    Lawrence, you'd asked for feedback so here you go.


    I think you should switch off Reinhardt. I don't think he suits your playstyle, as you tend to be very aggressive when your team isn't around and supporting you, and passive when you should be swinging your hammer (e.g. against that flanking Tracer), so you were dying quite a lot. It takes a lot of patience, positioning and communication to use Rein effectively these days. Your biggest mistakes (e.g. wasted Earthshatters, random charges into the team) were used out of frustration, and you didn't call out that you were going to even potentially use your abilities to allow your team to make the most of them.


    I think Zarya would suit you a lot more, as I can see that you want to get involved in team fights and secure those kills. You've got some sustain with being able to bubble yourself, and you could help your healers by bubbling them from flankers like Tracer. Her ult is still as game changing as Rein's earthshatter.

    Hey funhaus guys I really love these videos. I hope you get enough rt subs, views, or what have you to put more money(time?) into this so maybe you can go meet with a pro team after you send them footage. Would be cool to do a serious, or funny, meeting with them and actually get some solid pro feedback as to each of y'alls' play styles.

    3rd match was good to watch. Lawrence I'd say don't always be too aggro with Reinhardt; even though you are pushing the point, it's better to back up and regroup for a bigger push, otherwise you just get swamped. 


    Keep it up though guys, this is a good series  thumbsup

         I have advice specifically for Bruce playing support. As a support player myself, I have some critiques to make on how you handle getting dived by the enemy. You do call out when you're getting attacked, which is good, but you're not assertive enough. Instead of making a generic call-out like "Tracer behind"  look for teammates near you and ask them specifically for help. Such as saying "Zarya, help me with this Tracer." or "James, kill this Genji behind us." Often your cries for for help go ignored because, during a team fight, everyone has a million different things to focus on at once. Calling out specific names and tasks can better allow for the teammates to help you, that are in a position to do so, and doesn't distract other players that might not be able to help (say a friendly Genji in the process of flanking).

         Secondly, when you are getting dived on by an enemy, you often run in the wrong direction. You often attempt to escape a flanker by running backwards, away from the flanker, even if that is not the safest location to run to. This is a bad habit that a lot of people have, and good flankers will use it to their advantage. You should always try to run to your teammates, even if that means you're running in the direction of the flanker. Running away only increases the distance between you and the rest of your team, and makes it harder for them to help you. Anyway, that's my two cents.

    Hey Law, doubt youll read this but i saw the 'feedback' comment you made and i wanted to try and help a bit. 

    You are doing great in the capture point maps and making the most out of Rein's close up/ close space positives, but the problem with Rein, is that you have to be so conservative in open spaced maps (Eichenwalde), especially on Defence. In these situations Orisa is a far better pick, plus you won't be as antsy to jump into the fray, because that's how most Reins end up dying, and Orisa can do more long range damage, and move your shield every 8 seconds.

    Also, like Adam said, you need to know the points when to use your Earthshatter. it is hard to determine when, but try and save it for when there's a bunch grouped up, or to link it with another ult, such as Pharah/Genji etc. 

    Overall though as Adam, James and even you hinted at, Rein, has become a very situational pick.

    Anyway Doubt you'll read this as I said, but if you do catch it and it helps, i'm glad i could help.

    Constructive criticism for Lawrence (only because you asked for advice) If you read this here's the little advice I have from watching this highly edited gameplay. You have a habit of charging without thinking where it'll put you, try to be more aware of where that charge will put you as can't always rely on slowly stomping back with your shield up. Your shield is for your whole team to peak without getting picked and taking light but manageable damage feeds your healers ults. Also a bad habit you seem to have is just saying fuck it and charging when you know you'll lose the fight, try to work on stomping that mentality out, it'll lead to you assuming most situations will be lost when just adjusting your position could turn the tide.


    Source: Not an esports champ, just a guy who plays a lot of rein.


    TL;DR - Work on not saying fuck it and charging without thinking where you'll end up or if the team needed you back at the fight. I see great potential in you Lawrence.

    Lawrence needs to stop walking to the point by himself then complaining that hes at the point by himself. Tanks are nothing without their team if the team is fighting somewhere else you need to help win that fight THEN move to the point together. The way he's playing now its like he's asking to die. Also I realize this won't help until season 2 but I hope he sees this.

Bring back C9 to have you guys go through a training camp of sorts or have a special episode of Esports Ejects where they critique your gameplay afterwards and tell you what you all did wrong or right that would help you get better and we would be able to see what actual pro's at the game's advice would be!

    Lawrence. Why not combine ults with the DPS. When you Earthshatter, you don't necessarily need to be the ones to get the kills of your ult. Also i suggest deepening your hero pool instead of instalocking Rein. They're may be someone you queue up with who is much better Rein than you. Rein is also a low tier hero in the current meta with this ridiculous Junkrat craze while he's still being worked on in the PTR. 60% of Rein play relies in game sense and you've acknowledge before that you need to work on that so once that's solid in you, your Rein will be much better.


    Also please Bruce when playing Zen tr not to get too tunnel vision in getting kills and focus on the main task in healing. On WPG when you guys were at the second choke, it hurt to see you focus on damaging whoever was at the door rather than heal your team's D.Va while she was critical health. Especially when you were the only healer.


    I doubt you guys will see this, but hopefully it gets to you all. Good luck in season 6 and i apologize if this came off as insulting.
