Were you ever considered a 'pro' player, ranked or otherwise amongst the best players for a particular game? What was it like? Was the community friendly or rude? Were there any interesting strategies you used?

Back in the day I used to play Pokemon Gold/Silver/Crystal competitively online, those were fun times.

CS:GO is designed to stroke the egos of children by making it a "competitive" game. Now if you want to play the game for fun you have to play the "casual" mode, and I bet they even named it like that as a subtle fuck you to anyone who plays it.

Valve ruined CS just like they ruined Team Fortress.

Yes but I'm at the point where I see how much bullshit is involved with everything, its just as much politics as anything else.

The best way to go "pro" right now is to stream a game with a niche audience on very regular basis and form a community around that. You can actually build a living off of your personality this way if you can connect to your viewers and grow. This also gives you opportunities outside of whatever particular experience and if you're well liked online you might have an easier time finding work within the community of the game as well. The competitive grind where you're actually trying to win tournaments can burn you out if you don't have the proper support/guidance.

End of the day its all a giant marketing gimmick to suck money out of young kids. The only games that have significant prize pools are those that have the most money injected into them by the developer. Which of course brings in all kind of fun in it own way. Without that you have to bring in "Gaming Organizations" sponsor that fuck over kids who don't know shit about contracts. Some are good but most are useless brand circle jerks that give nothing of value to the players (although I haven't been involved in ages so it could be better now, at least for top teams).

Anyway I'm a strong player in most games I play and I just stick to casual settings, competitive playlists bring out the worst in people since mindsets contrast very differently between players. Think "If I'm not winning I'm not playing" kind of bullshit instead of just playing to learn the game. Win/Lose mean fuck all in matchmaking and scrims, what matters is adapting and learning. That special ranked 1 position doesn't really get you anything except attention and sad story is that vast majority of leaderboards are illegitimate for one reason or another. Account boosting, bad MM system, legitimate cheating you name it. Yet at your average levels of play you have everybody just mad at the world trying their damnedest to win, tilting and learning absolutely fuck all from hours of daily play.

In team games its absolutely mandatory you find a stable team to play with otherwise you'll hit a skill ceiling. In solo games its all about the grinding while losing games but keeping a

Now that piracy has taken off on vita I've had the chance to play a handful of games on it, and one I just finished playing was qforce/full frontal. It's a port of a first party playstation3 game but it's so horribly done. It was practically unplayable without overclocking the gpu on the vita (thanks to homebrew). Fps would drop to -10 all the time, and cut scenes were going massively out of sync with the audio. Then there's blurry ugly low resolution textures all over the place, pop in for stuff that isn't really that far away, the lack of antialiasing, and general small bugs in graphics here and there. Contrast also seemed to bug up a bit, but I didn't notice that one until after going to over clocking.

Who says I can't afford them? I've bought a few before the vita was hacked and lost interest in the system shortly after. I just mean the hack has made more games more accessible to me now. Sorry for the confusion.

For those who don't know, if you have a vita running at 6.60 you can visit https://henkaku.xyz/ using your vita to temporary soft mod it, allowing you to run home brew and what not.
sony has since released an offical filmwear, which is currently 6.63 and blocks the henkaku exploit. If you're bellow 6.60 and want to update to 6.60 without going over, here's a guide to help you out. http://wololo.net/2016/08/09/manually-update-ps-vita-firmware-3-60/

Recommended homebrew tools and applications:

MaiDumpTool, allows dumping(ripping) your games, and installing games other people have dumped also using mai.
https://github.com/LioMajor/MaiDumpToolEN/releases
An alternative is Vitamin, but you don't need vitamin to install games dumped with vitamin. vitamin dumps games in vpk format which can be installed with vita shell.
https://bitbucket.org/TheOfficialFloW/vitamin/overview

VitaShell is a content/file manager, and as mentioned above can be used to install vpk files (home brew and games)
https://github.com/TheOfficialFloW/VitaShell/releases

I also recommend the offline-installer application. This allows you to run the henkaku exploit without being connected to the internet.

I tried playing only this only for a short time and I already found what seems to be a huge problem with the game. The amount of free characters is barely more than the amount of members required for a full team. So it's safe to say people are going to be fighting over characters a lot, and opting out of selecting a character if they can't get at least one they like. When that happens the match gets canceled and you're stuck waiting on another match. I think if you play this game you can expect to spend lots of time waiting on matches that get canceled over and over until they add in more characters, or let multiple players use the same character.

Pokemon Go is very overrated but fun not going to lie.
>> No. 12200 [Edit]
I don't understand why this is so insanely popular. I mean I get the appeal of Pokemon IRL but you can't really do anything with them. You can't teach them moves or train them any other way than catching more of the same Pokemon and repeatedly trading the lower leveled ones for candy that's all specific to that Pokemon and its evolutions. It's fun for like a week and then you just get so sick of catching and discarding 500 magikarps so you can get a gyrados which kind of ruins the point of having magikarp in the first place because it's so obvious to new players that it's going to become something really badass.

Which would explain why the number of players is plummeting already.
It's funny though, the devs don't seem to be doing much to prevent it. I understand why the game was designed this way but now that you hooked some people you should make an attempt to actually try to get them to stay. I think making the game a bit more complex would turn away some of them but many others would stay for this depth. At this rate people will forget this existed by November.
Not that I care either way; hell, it's probably for the better.

Is it just me or does anyone else feel it's a bit pointless to get a gpu in the 10 series with so few games coming out that would really push the hardware? Is 4k gaming really worth it?
>> No. 12233 [Edit]

As someone with a crappy laptop and unable to afford anything else:
Don't the GPUs last several years for good performance? If you get a Series 10 one right now, will you still be able to play games in high quality in a couple of years? I guess the answer depends more in whether you have the money to bleed.

Gotta sell those new graphics cards somehow...
Why are so many games today go so crazy with lighting effects? Tone it down, people!
>> No. 12257 [Edit]
VR is really stressful on cards as it needs to produce two images at the same time. There is some work being done to make it less intensive by only rendering certain objects per frame per eye, but it's not a thing yet.
Some people fell for the 4k fad as well and need a beefy GPU to play at a decent framerate (for minimal visual gain).

callig somethig competitive in no way makes it competitive.

new cod games dont have dedicated servers meaning the game host gets an advantage. "competitive" tourneys are played on consoles, which have autoaim to compensate for the shoddy controls (joystick)

league of legends has "competitive" modes, but the developers are constantly trying to remove competitive features and homogenize the characters to make it easier to play.

even wow has "competitive" arena, but that is just a battle of who would waste more time on getting welfare gear...

20 tick means the server only updates once every 50ms. obviously its that way to make it easier to play on worse computers and worse internet. it severely limits the skill ceiling; it's a low skill game

even the "competitive" mode in csgo uses 60 tick for the servers, but actual competitive tournaments for that game use server mods to run at 120 tick.

tl;dr low tick = low skill != competitive

i mean overwatch was made to be competitive. Even in the quick play option it gets competitive. its a 6v6 team based fps, that alone makes it competitive.

I know what 20 ticks means, but what you dont understand blizzard designed the servers that way because they are brain dead. look it up Overwatch "favors the shooter".

No one is arguing if its low skill or not. but blizzard clearly designed the game to be competitive.

>blizzard clearly designed the game to be competitive

If they did, they failed miserably. Don't get me wrong, it's a fun game to hop on and screw around on once in a while, but I'm going to have to agree with the other guy here- nothing can be truly "competitive" at 20 tick. And that's to say nothing of the aim assist, gratuitous iframes on almost every character, and a broken ranking system.
