Silver to Diamond Progress:
The core of Overwatch - Moba at heart disguised as FPS
Much faster pace than MOBA
Constant team fight
I usually play in like 3-ish hour sittings, sometimes multiple times a day
Putting in the hours
Good practice is important.
Don't form bad habits
Watch streams, ask for help, get coaching
Hero tracking, skill tracking and looking for openings.
Learning your matchups.
My biggest self-imposed rule is if we’ve already lost a fight, just don’t ult
Allowing yourself to know multiple heroes/roles
If you lose a game, you should always look back on the game as if the loss was your fault - as if there is always something you could improve
Don’t be afraid to admit others can be better than you, embrace it and learn from them.
Dealing with Teammates:
Accept that is a team game and you need your teammates.
