  10. Recommend me some shows

    Sci-fi has had a resurgence in recent years on cable networks like FX and TNT. The shows eventually make it to Netflix/Hulu with little fanfare. There are many more shows I'd recommend, but so many of them have been cancelled. Local and cable networks are merciless when it comes to cancelling sci-fi slots. Even Netflix seems to have a low tolerance, as observed by Sens8. I was really excited to see where the Wachowski sisters were going with the story, but due to some plot muddiness the project was killed 2 seasons in with no meaningful wrap-up. ABC cancelled cult hits like Awake and Defying Gravity just because they couldn't compete with the viewership that garbage reality tv brings in. On the flip side, it's also really easy for some of these TV writers to really waste a premise. I'll cite Continuum and Ascension here. Could have gone really cool places, diddled around in the less-interesting aspects of the concept, cancelled.
  11. Looking for Overwatch comp crew

    To anyone stuck in the high silver -> mid-gold range: You may find it easier to climb by exclusively playing tanks and leading your team's engagements. Pretty much the only play difference between plat and gold/silver is that people in plat tend to wait and group up rather than trickle into an objective. They are not necessarily better mechanically speaking. This does mean you'll need to be active on comms, and focus on positivity. People really do respond when you're there to have a good time and you want the same for your team. Disclaimer: This can be done solo, but it is a slower road. I hit plat with a combination of solo q-ing and playing with @MadCast Maday and @MadCast: Deaf Monkey. My plan from here is to start focusing on a smaller hero pool (Zarya/DVA, Zen/Symm, 76/Reaper), and making sure my performance is more consistent. I can't find it at the moment, but I read an article written by a grandmaster who offered to view play footage of silver/gold players and give critique. He found that most people in silver/gold have no discernible difference mechanics-wise from Diamond players. The difference is consistency, strategic implementation, and game sense. If you don't get salty and are willing to kill your ego and actually get better, I will queue with you regardless of SR.
