Kine + Molotov
Ana + Reinhart
Pocket Medic + Tank
EV game mode

Molo is the big dude with hammer, glow in the dark blue shield and huge HP. Kine is the medic that heals by shooting allies who can periodically boost one of them granting temporarily higher damage, HP regen and faster movement speed.

Already got ~100 hours match time by the time Molo started playing Overwatch. Been squadding up together almost daily since then along with Azh. And every single session, we'd be pairing up Heroes that synergize together and trying to play them tactically.

Honestly - we don't have to.
It's not ranked and most definitely casual matches with randoms.

But we still do it. Playing the game as a squad using 2 man tactics.
Coz - what's the point in not doing it ?

We're both in the same clan. We're both on voice comms. We both spend time on Discord talking about the game, mechanics and meta. Wouldn't it be the dumbest thing ever if we didn't take advantage of that familiarity and cohesion we've built up over this time ?

Kine Medics. Randoms do DPS.
How fucked up is that shit.

I can personally out shoot and out aim 90% of the server population in queue. But I still insist on playing squad tactics. And most of the time it's running as support coz that's the setup and talent pool we happen to have playing Overwatch currently in Creed.

If I kept pub stomp mentality I'd go do my own thing shooting stuff irrespective of what other Creedlings on squad are running. But I don't coz that's dumb. We're in a clan so we do clan stuff. Casual or Ranked.

It takes so much more effort to get a full Creed squad going for DB. But when it does happen, we go semi FFA because it's a casual match ?? And we're 100% certain everybody can switch on tournament mode when playing ranked as a squad coz we have talent on tap ready to activate just say go ?

Without practicing or talking about it and not needing to train on those skill sets ? Like during casual scrims on DBN ?

And it isn't about playing the game like a pro BS. It keeps the interest alive. If clan matches Creed runs is just about the same level of play that you get doing it on solo Q - what's the incentive to be and stay in a clan ?

You're in a clan, with clan mates playing the same game. So do clan stuff. And that implicitly means shedding pub stomp solo hero habits and actually utilize small squad tactics when we do play together.

Tricky commented on Discord that it is unfair to compare the need for squad tactics in OW to DB. As Azh put it, DB is not as tactical as OW.

See - I'm not comparing two different games.

I'm commenting on a single clan's attitude to team play.

Just because you can get away with solo hero shit in DB doesn't mean treating team play as optional is acceptable. What then sets Creed apart from a bunch of talented randoms that happen to be on the same team ?

Casual or Ranked doesn't matter.

If you go in as a premade, you play like a clan. 2,3,4 or 5 stack don't matter. As long as you have a clan mate in the same match - you work together.

Our 4 man vs a full 6 stack

Zen Zarya + Pharah Mercy

Tank+Medic, DPS+Medic

Zarya is really tanky. Almost unkillable with a pocket medic. Assuming the medic doesn't die. Phara Mercy is early meta whose synergy is based on the medic's ability to fly towards the airborne DPS and apply damage amp or heal. Makes it harder for ground based units to kill the medic while at the same time increasing the effectiveness of the team's DPS unit.

The full stack we went up against didn't really have any form of synergy between them. They had a medic coz they needed one. Ran a tank coz every team needs a tank. And filled the rest of their slots with a random mix of Heroes.

6 man semi FFA premade versus Creed 4 man combo.

Our 2 randoms could pick anything they wanted and we'd still win it tbh. And in the beginning they really did picked to throw the game lol. Twin snipers ftw. The worse of the 2 snipers did the right thing towards the end and switched out to a tank buster who made 2 big pick offs in the final wave of the match.

The other random who stayed sniper didn't suck however. Provided vision for the team with a good amount of uptime. We had eyes on the opposition for almost the entire match.

Cannot remember when this last happened but we ran a full stack last night. Not much was discussed in terms of micro tactics because we had 3 Diamond ranked players on the team who knew how to get shit done. Comms wise we only had to update locations, focus fire target, ult timings and staggered respawns when it occasionally happens.

Scrubs on the squad were Kine, Ginro and Molotov.

Ginro didn't suck. Was able to get kills in although better choice of targets would be a thing I'm hoping to see next time. There is an order of who should die on the enemy's team and the only time you deviate is if someone else suddenly becomes important (coz reasons). Usually one of the healers or the person in trouble himself make those calls and DPS fix things by killing shit.

Molo didn't go out of his way to combo I'm assuming because he's on an upward trend with Lucio (a healer class) so he stuck with it. Generally not a problem because Lucio is relevant almost all the time. He didn't escort people back from respawn though and speed boosting were done mainly on his own judgement rather than coordinated as part of a team move. It's not that hard, just tell or ask on voice before amping it up.

Kine made a bunch of mistakes. You can point them out for me so I can improve on them. Positioning wise, I did have video POV in mind when I shouldn't some times coz I wanted a better view of the team so it's easier or more obvious to watch. An example of trying to play the game without regard to POV was when I tried (failed at) Mercy. Enemy team wanted to deny me revives so bad I didn't have the luxury of staying alive so half the time I had my face up against the wall.

Long video dump of all but one match we played. Had to discard that one round we lost because it was causing audio desyn. It'd have explained our final winning round better if you could see the way we lost the one before but meh.

Tricky came in late and spectated. Was put into the enemy team because we had a full stack. I gave up my spot so he could run with the crew. Azh prolly upload what went on after that.

20 minutes of Creed domination
