I should really post here more often, so here’s a quick play from yesterday.
Sometimes winning just means not losing or to be more particular not allowing the other team to win.
A quick competitive game of Overwatch, playing using Moria.
It’s been quite a while since I posted. So since I’ve nothing better at this point, here’s a video of my last player of the game in Overwatch.
I still love Moria :o)
Moria still remains one of my favorite characters to play in Overwatch, the fact that she’s Irish is a welcome plus !
Sometimes you just get team compositions which just click and in such cases unless the opposing team are equally in synergy it’s an uphill climb.
A recent competitive game I had at the tail end of season 8 (bronze level), this went on for five rounds before the tie was broken.
If you are sharing an internet connection with others, while uploading video content to the likes of YouTube. Then one issue you will have run into quickly is that you can quickly saturate the up-link.
Thus, making browsing unresponsive for the other users, since that up-link no longer has capacity to deliver their browsing requests.
A handy trick to get around this is to use the developer tools offered with Chrome to limit the amount of bandwidth you are consuming on your upload.
You can access this functionality by pressing F12 key on your keyboard to bring up the “developer tools” panel within Chrome. With the network throttling option offered under the “Network” tab.
The throttling can be selected by pressing the downward facing arrow at the end of the “Network” options. Though you may need to expand the amount of space visible to see the drop arrow to access the speed menu. (As shown below)
A number of presets are available which can be selected, along with the option to add a custom configuration.
Click the “Add custom profile” button to bring up the custom profile settings. Here you can supply the upload speed limit which is expressed in kb/s. For my purposes I want to restrict my uploads to around 5mb/s, so I entered 5000, the filled out dialog is shown below.
The action is completed by pressing the “Add” button highlighted in blue.
Once these actions have been completed you will be able to select your new profile on the Network tab shown earlier.
Your uploads will now be restricted to the limit you specified while the throttling option is active.
If you’re planning on attempting the rescue missions for the space stations recently attacked by the Thargoids. I’d suggest you wear shorts… just shorts.
Heat management may be a thing here.
A shout out to Brian Brushwood for highlighting this, it’s great and you need to take the time to try it out.
