    Played 6 training and a real one.. Seems servers OK on the NA server. Nice to have a decent team too.

    I am Gold II rank now and I just played vs RockMonkey, a pro player at Master rank and his partner Shadow who is only Diamond II. How shall I reach Platin like this. 😞 On the other hand, if I play vs Master ranked pro players at Gold, why should I reach platin? 🙂 Is the glass half empty or half full, that's here the question. 😄

    And here you see your average Paladins ranked team, created by Matchmaker(TM):

    The worst is when you're diamond. You're either in games with masters and grandmasters, so why even rank up when you're going against them anyway aside from a border? At the same time, why is being in diamond such a big deal because the game puts me at the top with plats and gold players. I even had a silver player before, which is a giant wtf.

    I had a bronze I player myself. Threw the match and blamed me, you know, when I was D5 and the one actually carrying the losing team with one of my worse picks. 😆

    Probably salty that he wasn't at the top, so he couldn't instalock his dps of choice.

    Those people get mad, but then they create a vicious cycle. They continue to be bottom pick because they're throwing games and ranking down, which means they can't instalock dps without throwing, and no one is going to let some silver player dps in a game full of plats and diamonds, so they continue to throw and rank down. Instead they should learn good tanks and supports, fill, and then rank up. Once you get to at least Gold II, you'll be at the top more often, thus you'll be able to play dps in rank more often.

    It was Tyra of course, and still managed to die constantly against a team with no flanks. Looked them up and Tyra's also their highest mastery, and they have an overall $#!+ KDA with her and a less than 50% WR. 😆



  • @HeartQueen Well, Paul is Silver and matched with Rockmonkey at Masters. I laughed so hard when I saw this matchup at Guru.



  • There, I reached Talus lvl 40. Now I can complain how trash he is without people telling me I am inexperienced with the character.



  • @TTraw It's hot topic on the rage thread 😄



  • I play for these moments 😇 20200516194928_1.jpg

    Although I think it's a bit slower than it was I now have internet... yay.

    To answer how for people who care, I have to give a little context. I live with a housemate (well, roommate also, and yes he's the one I've been borrowing the internet from) and we each have our own computers. He got the idea of plugging in ethernet cables to each computer's ethernet ports (since his connects to the router via wifi adapter). So essentially our computers share the bandwidth from his connection and it works out. Have to test the speed to see, but yeah I do think it's a little slower than it was.

    @Vaporized and @Shadowpuppy Yeah, probably both good ideas for next time... 😬

    Also, even if this has nothing to do with Paladns, Crucible is really looking like an interesting game.

    So apparently Makoa can attack cancel with his ult. Interesting. 🤔

    Meaning that, at least according to what I'm seeing trying to get the hang of Pluck Koa combos in shooting range, you can fire the cannon, use ult and then immediately hit them before the animation of him pulling up the anchor even starts. Probably works because the likely game considers them different and thus gives them different timers.

    Tried out Vicious Assault.. Tank Koga... Got a decent Strix for once.

  • PC

    More fun with Vicious Assault. Only Ruckus and I got caut... Out damaged by Ruckus??? Granted I was having Strix issues being more careful but still. Would have been easier if Ying had gone FL (was LE) to help deal with the Koga constantly in our backline. If their Seris wasn't so bad we would have lost. Q times back to 2:40s again???

  • Two things to celebrate, my blue wall and my heal.

    Ying game was 6:34, and I healed for 68k. That's more than 10k healing per minute in a 4-0 team wipe. I'm also sure that is one of the shortest ranked games ever recorded. A 6:34 ranked game? I'm too good at support. Though for the enemy team, no idea what comp they were trying to go for. Torvald hasn't been good ever since his nerf a patch or two ago. Tyra was not needed with Viktor and Dredge together. Jenos should've been swapped for Grover, and Tyra should've been Inara. If Tyra were Inara, Torvald were Ash, and Jenos were Grover, the game would've been longer or we would've lost. But alas, it's not my team so meh.

    Turns out if you play absurdly early in the morning, you get no lag and things work fine. 🤷

    You're happy about that? 😕

    This still doesn't tell us if it's server or internet being overloading.

    Let's start a movement to get them to provide us with real time CPU usage of the servers.. LOL.

    At least it f***ing works.

    Got to love those Kinessa bots. If we had lost it would be in the rage thread instead.

    20200519201739_1.jpg

    This was my first real match of the session. The Damba was doing a good job. The Skye was trying and getting key things done. We had an actual bot Kinessa that was worse than useless. Out of the blue the Damba apologizes for me dying in a choke during overtime and Skye apologized for the talent choice. I was surprised they felt the need to apologize. They must get flamed too much by toxic Barik mains - Looking at @Dusklicious 🙂 (Joke)

    I should have done a friend request. I accidentally closed the scoreboard when I was going to go back and commend - The commend system sucks.



  • Checked out Paladins stats and at diamond+, there's more people playing SC in ranked than Mortal Reach.

    Thanks Vex30.

    Inara looks really good right now, that makes me happy.

    To be honest, this game is in a more balanced state right now than it has been in a long while, even low tiers are somewhat viable. There's even a case for a few characters that people think are bad.
