    Also, for Bruce, you gotta have more position awareness. There was a point when tracer was on you, and all you had to do was back pedal to the health pack but you instead stopped and let her run in get it and kill you. Dying as mercy kills almost every offensive push. There was a time on point A when tracer was on you again on the point, and instead of walking 5 feet to the left into Adam's kill room as sym, you chose to walk around on point and let the tracer kill you. For everyone, the biggest tip is not to jump. You should have crouch bound to an easy to touch button, and be using that as a means of juking. Jumping leaves you in the air on a set path, making headshots easy to attain.

    That round of Volkskaya was predominantly not yalls teammates fault. Both times the second point was lost on defense, it was Lawrence's fault. When the enemies combo'd their ults, Lawdog was over extended while also being timid and asking if he should earth smash. The grav was unavoidable but L could've easily turned to his right and blocked the earth smash instead of just looking around bewildered. With that earth smash not hitting, the deadeye would've been countered because L would've had a counter smash after the enemies rein would get over extended after missing his smash. The second defense there was no reason to push point A, which led to L and Bruce getting stuck outside point and for B to just be snowballed. That is not a wrong doing of yalls teammates, you just need to communicate that better. Unless you're all grouped there is no reason to push point A once its passed 50%. That leads to a snowball on B 90% of the time

    A random side note: Maybe in a warm up they can share tactics theyve seen from top players 

     and practice them in quickplay together (a hilarious one is putting all of syms turrents behind an orisa shield against a hdden wall). Gives them all a more rounded idea of what each other's picks are capable of.

    Adam needs to work on his sym game a little. getting ult good but he should be constantly replacing and setting turrets, esp with that macree baiting in the side room. When shield gen went, next focus should  be getting those turrents on point so even if he dies, team still has support. Lawrence had an ill timed panic ult but he wasnt getting much support for rest of ult followup. Bruce needs to work on constantly juggling people and using guardian angel to fly away to a shield or sym instead of panicking and shooting all the time. The room where he was trapped w tracer is an easy escape when rest of team is right outside and zarya should always have one eye on the healers when tracer or genji is around flanking for a handy bubble. I couldn't see much of James' Moira, but using her fade to escape is so op and needs to be used more, esp when trying to cap the point.


    Think it might help for them to watch top 500 tips for positioning and game sense, but also to take time out of comp, maybe in quickplay together, and go through the maps trying diff positions and new tactics, even as a warm up before comp, and maybe even as a cooldown after comp to test what u can improve on.


    All in all, even if it's only a 4 sack, if ur healers keep dying by same stuff, u need to change it up and also if u see other non group members not doing what u need, communicate w them. If a dps isnt flanking or getting picks, ask them to flank and coordinate the attack, otherwise they will just do whatever. If not, ask if they can play tank and u switch off when u die.


    If something isnt working dont keep dying; make a decision right then and there, communicate it and then follow through immediately. If you see that tracer is flanking and call but no one is doing anything and healer dies, ask the correct person specifically to help (eg hey doomfist stick with me through the choke and kill tracer), not just hey i need help bc that give too much time to fanny about and no one takes responsibility bc they are doing own thing.


    All comes w game sense and learning what each char is good and weak at. But I think probably there needs to be a bit more research going forward.

    Losing ranked Overwatch matches sucks but i bet it's still better then putting up with this god awful web player. Don't have streaming issues on any other site except Roosterteeth. Freezes and wont play past a certain point.

    i don't know how frequently they play outside of this series. i don't know if they really want to "git gud" or they're just playing for fun, but they never seem like they're having fun.


    i really think they would benefit from watching overwatch streamers/pros on twitch. emongg, surefour, gale adelade, aimbot calvin, iremiix, so many of these guys improved the way i look at the game, my game sense in general, how i play certain characters, and a lot more. it just seems like they're SAYING "we're going to do this strategy" but it never really happens because it's not always a complete understanding of how to do it or how to do it correctly.


    i do love watching them play overwatch, but it bums me out when they're also bummed out :/

    i adore this series but i feel like they need to have more fun with it, like they stop and analyse every individual part of it and that over analysis causes them to become more upset and demoralised, the only thing i would change is lawrence hard locking rein, change it up play some dps and have a bit of fun

    The Rein should be the one making calls, definitely not the Doomfist.  You can't push in if the Rein isn't ahead. I don't think the pushes were aggressive enough and took too long to actually get going, which is why the flankers had time to pick people off from behind. Besides that, there was really good shatters which the team should have been able to follow up on, and then bad panic ults.

    I don't get it, if dealing with randos is hurting them that bad then why not dig into the rest of the Funhaus on-air talent? Surely there are two other warm bodies on staff that could do better.

      Playing with a full team of 6 can have it's ups and downs. It'll take MUCH longer to find a game, and when you do, you're more likely to play against the same team over and over. Might not hurt to try though.

    Lawrence, take some time to learn what to you're supposed to do as Rein. It seems you just freeze when you are not sure what to do, neither having shield up nor swinging. And asking for directions while in the middle of a fight is not ideal. You really shine with Reinheart when you get in the mood of it, you're just lacking game sense

    LawRein Fan Club stands with our hammer dad even through the rough patches. Remember, victory is the accumulation of knowledge gained from the lessons of defeat.


    You had really pretty shatters and some less than pretty shatters. The good news is with tanks when you whiff an ult you get to call it a "zoning ult" and you're not actually wrong.


    One thing I loved, was the fire strikes are getting better and better. The attempted firestrike on the junk tire on Gibraltar was the exact play you should have done and even though you missed it you tanked the resulting explosion which is exactly your job so A+


    A few other things that are more game sense than mechanical skill.


    1. Never listen to a doomfist(or any random) above your team when he says "go in." the exception would be if he gets an important pick (healer or that on fire gengu). And never listen to the complaints that sound like "where was my team?" 9 times out of 10 its the person who said that's fault for being out of postition.


    2. It's time to slowly start implementing mind games (rein games) this is learning when your enemy rein has his shatter. Your shield can block that like no other.  And he knows that so he's gonna wait for your shield to drop even for a second. So you want to be one step ahead ahead of him by faking dropping your shield for a split second. DO NOT FIRE STRIKE! That's enough time for a shatter. This is just the bare basics but more will come with improvement. Always remember rein games work both ways!


    3. This one is simple but sometimes not so. Salt and toxicity gets nobody nowhere. Let me be clear I'm not accusing you of being salty. But I can see it creeping on you, in moments when you die in a second or you get a fatty and nobody comes to clean it up. Thats just part of the game, you can't blame the hanzo on the other team for one shotting you, because he's just trying to climb the ladder like everybody else and hes doing exactly what his character is supposed to. And when your team is away from you, 9 times out of 10 the actually WANT to be next to you but can't for one reason or another (trust me everybody want to hug Reinhardt he's adorable and makes you feel super safe). So try to baby sit your super squishy and adorable mercy to the front lines because sometimes there's a genji or trader that knows to HIDE from you when you come from spawn so you go "what the hell are you guys whining about? there's nobody here" and then they just rain on your healers parade.


    And just a little note from the last comment I left even though obviously you've probably seen neither or atleast not in the span of the next video:


    Remember that tidbit about being pocketed by a healer so you can swing that sexy hammer?  James did it on volskaya and it worked like a dream. Moira is limited in her healing so you cant use it up for super long but that's exactly the juice you want!

    This was a rough one, but I think they're right. There were times where Bruce would use a revive on the non-Funhaus guys and my brain would be like, "No don't waste it on them!".

    I'm kind of a rein tank main so seeing Lawrence was kinda frustrating at times since he doesn't use rein's full potential. If a character is near you, just swing away, buddy. Don't hold back. If a tank is cornering you (like how zarya was), then shift on them. With that shift and swing you can take on any tank (maybe not orisa). I feel like Lawrence really panics and he forgets how versatile his character is. Rein has it all, high damage, great blocking ability and a shift to rescue you away from the fire. Don't overestimate the enemy, you are as strong, NAY, stronger than them when you have your friends by your side.


    A rein and a good mercy (like Bruce) can be an amazing attack combo, so please use them. Also, it'll be really good for you if you played other characters and viewed the battlefield from a different angle like how you played Moira (who you were great as) last time.

    Think it would be interresting if bruce and lawrence switched roles for a match or two, because while james and adam are flexible the other two seem to get set way too much in one way of doing things and could do with some flexability and understanding of the others roles.

      Yeah his first one was great, they shoulda easily hit the checkpoint after that. He even called out that he was going to do it multiple times and well ahead of time. Their excuse was that a Tracer was flanking, but that shouldn't be enough to make them miss such a huge opportunity.

      He choked it because he always charges immediately. 2 hammer swings and he could have solo killed mercy, ana and mccree. No team needed. How can team follow up damage on targets flying back and into the air (to safety) from charge?

    I think Lawrence should spend a little personal time playing with other characters, I've gone from DVA to Tracer to Reaper to Soldier, I slowly found my niche, I get the sense Lawrence hasn't. James and Adam are flexible, which gives Lawrence room to implement an expanded roster. He could be the worlds best Genji and not even know.

    Keep it up guys. I know you are getting fisted but i hope you can band together and play to the best of your abilities. Show no fear to your opponents.

    Also I think bruce should have a go making callouts and strats. He is often your main healer so he usually has the most info available, especially as mercy, where you hold LMB and can just look around everywhere.

    I'm hoping that we're getting through what was filmed earlier so that they can take another look at this show for the new year. 


    It feels to me like they don't enjoy playing at this stage, and there are a few things that have been suggested that they could do to revamp the process. I want to see them having fun, not getting mad at each other and feeling hopeless. 


    This isn't a dig, just expressing my hopes for the show and the team.

    Lawrence, please remember to firestrike before charging after an earth shatter. Sometimes don't even both charging, you could've killed them with your team and hammer swings but instead carried the other team away from yours and they killed you for it twice in the first game. You were doing so well besides remembering that.

    On defence on the second game, Lawerance played correctly as Rein, you guys told him to back off and not to shatter as they came through the choke meaning they could just walk in get a good position/flank and build ult charge. Either way, if Law has shatter and he can get 3+ and your in range on backing it up which they were he 100% should shatter. Also, Adam needs to play widow more on Volk she would of got so much value (ton more than torb would of).


    Also by telling him to hold shatter sooooo long the enemy team will know he had it meaning when they graved the rein and Zarya were not together (after they got through choke) and the Mcree was on high ground. Meaning for Law to stop the push he would of had to sheild shatter then counter shatter the Rein then shield the high noon (this is Diamond-Master level play) or he could of just shattered em as they came through the choke.


    Either way, that second game you gave them the game more than they won the game by letting them choose when to start the fight.

      Yeah I agree. I think Law had some great plays and better intuition all around, but didnt get the back up he needed. Think James was a little harsh when his gameplay needs a lot of work as well. He and Adam are more experienced but bc of that they try to do it all, stretching them thin on the battlefield trying to save everyone and get the kills instead of focusing on the play or breaking away from the battle to snap up a flanker.

    I really like this series, I really do, but this show feels like it could be more than just watching every game they play. It also doesn't help that with some streak of losses, the energy of the video doesn't feel all that pleasant to watch


    One of my favorite parts is James's breakdown on a match and where to improve. I feel like there could be some editing used to illustrate moments he's referencing, have an almost chalk board/play by play effects of things that could have been done differently. Instead of simply uploading gameplay videos with light editing, have segments where good executions are explained and poor executions can be be improved

    Bruce was MVP for game 2, Lawrence you played ok but the game got to your head, on the last point, you pushed up to far, trying to go dps instead of protecting your team, if you would have you could of saved them from the Earth shatter and Graviton.

      Have to agree. I watched all of the first season but its starting to wear on me hearing them complain or pile on insults towards their random teammates.


      Maybe its the bias of being a solo player but watching a team complain and blame anything bad happening on their teammate when they can all gang up on them sours me on the series.
