Flame on!

Have you ever gotten so mad at a game that you take it upon yourself to trash talk even your own team!? Though rage is normal and can be an overwhelming emotion that occurs a lot especially for those just starting to get into the competitive scene, it's something you really need to recognize and reset. Best thing to do here is take a break! I know I know people tell you you need to put hours on end into it to reach that level of play. However, time played doesn't mean anything if you just yell at your screen all day or blindly run around. It is imperative that you practice the right way and rage simply just clouds your judgement. At the end of the day improvement comes from a level headed individual focusing on the right aspects of the game. Not the lag, the teammate running in over and over, or even the fact you're getting spawn trapped.

You are the best you!

Confidence vs Arrogance?

Though there is a fine line there is a distinct difference between the two. Confidence is re-assuring  ones self of your abilities or qualities. "I will hit this shot or I will win with my team because of the practice I put in." Nothing along the lines of bashing the opponent and trying to show superiority. That right there is the fine line. "I will win this because we are the better team and he is awful or I'm just better than this guy." So when you get advice from someone about that age old question "How do I improve?" take a step back and go after the advice with confidence that you now know that ability rather than thinking you can stomp someone because you know it. Knowing is only have the battle you have to put it into practice first!

You are the best you!

Balance is strength... Even though we all love the competitive side of Halo, egos aside for a minute it's always nice to have a good little break and enjoy some of the more casual playlists too. Messing around in the Action Sack playlist I discovered a few of the most entertaining game modes I have ever played. Paintball where you take a plasma pistol and one hit you're out. Husky Raid was another super enjoyable game. So many goofy things happen in these games making us remember why we love the game in the first place... It's fun! Plain and simple yeah yeah we all wanna be the next Ninja or Spartan. I get it but if you don't take a break to enjoy the game you will burn yourself out thus hindering your improvement. So I encourage all of you to grab a friend and enjoy some of the more casual game play that Halo 5: Guardians has to offer.

You are the best you!

Forge Your Community!

Where have the dedicated Halo forgers gone? The amount of custom maps and games that made the game so fun to play seem to have significantly declined. If there are any forgers out there right now that might know why please tell me would love to know. More over most of the iconic fast paced hectic maps are almost non-existent. With the implementation of the new movement mechanics it still makes the game fast paced but just in a different way. Who else would like to see more community maps in the HCS playlist?
You are the best you!

What kind of ball is that? Halo's classic game type oddball is making a return in the featured playlist. The real question is will they re-implement some of these game types into HCS? It would add more variety to the competitive scene and be interesting to see how the pros play on these maps!
You are the best you!

Snipers playlist makes a return!

It's about time we've gotten the snipers playlist back. For awhile I was making custom games with Snipe/Pistol starts in order to get practice with the snipe. After 5 years of playing with mouse and keyboard I was severely upset that I couldn't jump into a game type to practice using the snipe because I was wiffing every shot I took with it. Not to mention how rare it is that you can grab a sniper without being killed by your team. I feel in lower ranks the level of "competitive" players is practically the same mind set as casual players. They don't care whether they win or they lose they only care about being the hero. All in all I was stoked to see that the snipers playlist will be making its return and can't wait to get on a grind practicing my snipes!
You are the best you!

Ever feel like you're wasting your time? Support groups are a huge pillar when it comes to any sort of big dream. Whether it be family, a group of friends, or even a personal coach. I'm lucky enough to have a few of these pillars in my journey! My family and friends are always supporting me to continue with my dreams of breaking into the competitive scene and making streaming a full-time job. What are your support groups and dreams?

You are the best you!

Roles in first-person shooters? What? Anyone that just plays the game casually may not understand different types of roles involved at high level play. While everyone should be able to do just about everything there are players that specialize in different aspects of play.
Main Slayer: Generally more aggressive mopping up the lot.

Support: These guys try to position themselves to throw as many shots and call out the weaker targets.

Flanker: Looks for opportunities to get behind the enemy and lay down fire. *Could also be the slayer.* Objective: Focuses primarily on capturing flags, securing hills, etc. These guys are usually some of the hardest to kill. Well I mean when everyone is gunning for you don't you have to be.

To wrap things up everyone looking to compete should be able to adequately transition from one role to another. You will most definitely excel in one area or another. What type of player are you?

You are the best you!

What does gaming mean to you? Gaming for me is a passion an outlet to exercise my mentality, decision making, and dexterity. The goal for most people with a similar attitude towards gaming want to compete at the top level. Of course I'm no different here that will be the end goal! In my short time back on halo I've reached the same skill level possibly even better than I was when I quit five years ago. During my practice I've met quite a few awesome people! That said I'm pretty excited to see where my adventure takes me and who it allows me to meet along the way. What does gaming mean to you?

You are the best you!

What is the difference between confidence and an ego? Believe it or not these two things are more closely related than you would realize. The line between the two is a very fine one. Confidence is the ability to believe you can do something based off of belief in yourself.  Having an ego however is based off of lack of respect for someone or something else. Confidence can make or break an individual and most certainly a leader, where as an ego is purely destructive  in any sort of team environment. It develops a distaste and/or lack of trust for the person with the ego. Not only that it prevents any farther personal development. Awhile back I used to play with a handful of people like this and most often these people. There was constant bickering about who's better than who, who is not doing their job in the role etc. One of these people wondered why all his friends didn't care to play with him except for me (I actually believed he knew what he was talking about) then when he had no one else to blame falls on me. Through this experience I would like to suggest that you keep your ego in check you may lose many friendships along your journey and some of them might not be worth losing for a minute of self-gratification. If you've had an ego and manage to shake it please feel free to share below!

You are the best you!

A little change of pace here, this is why you should avoid tunnel visioning. Not only did it happen once, or twice, no it happened 3 times back to back. Tied up the game right after that and unfortunately lost the game 49-50.  Chasing kills can throw games without the proper support.
You are the best you!

What is comfortable? If you know what comfortable is chances are you're there and you don't care to go much farther with your goals. You want to make it in e-sports or some other aspect of life, but you've settled. You are happy with where you are? Why? All I am saying is once you get comfortable with where you are you focus less on what needs to be done rather than celebrating your current achievement.
While I was gone from Halo for the last 5 years or more playing League of Legends I made that mistake myself. I peaked at gold a couple seasons back although in a team atmosphere I could play like a much higher rank. None of that mattered because I was comfortable just reaching gold. So every time I solo queued I would get really frustrated and set off from playing ranked, because I was told many times I shouldn't be at my rank. I kinda let this inflate my ego so nothing was my fault right? Wrong, I switched over to Counter-Strike shortly after and did the same thing there. Now that I've learned I'm back at it on halo with my boys Nara Oshima and The Kalamity. Such a fun time I forgot how much I loved this game and the people I met in it. I will not get comfortable again. Being comfortable although might feel good for a little while is a hindrance and at the end of the day will cause you more of an annoyance in the end. For anyone taking an interest in e-sports or even just a rank ladder, as a matter of fact anything with a competitive atmosphere I can't stress this enough. Don't get comfortable!

You are the best you!
