    He's just reddits favourite and gets the most exposure as a result, plenty of people out there that pick up games just as quickly and have ridiculously good aim. Remember he was largely unsuccessful as a CSGO Professional player. I mean he's got top tier aim but it's not incomparable to plenty of other players.

    While there's certainly a decline in reaction speeds as you get older, it's incredibly overplayed (especially here on OCAU, one of the most ridiculous scapegoats I see regularly) and affects gaming very little outside of absolute top tier gameplay. You've still got Tier 1 CSGO professionals in their mid 30s and I wouldn't hesitate to believe they'd still be fucking amazing into their 40s. People seem to either be good at games or not.

    People said the same thing about the M1A1 in BFV. Not that hard.

    .. have you considered simply adding people? I've got a few people on my list from matches that have added me.

    Surprisingly, Apex still holding #1 spot for prime-time U.S for viewers, despite the new season drop in Fortnite.

    I'm out. I uninstalled last night. It's a well polished product so it's not 'reee it's crap' post that I've seen pushed forth here. I think it's a fantastic surprise release and my hat off to Respawn for how they managed it and have released a hit.

    Simply solo queuing is a clusterfuck. Limited time means I'm more likely to be staring at character screen because randoms are just that, random. Also I just can't get a hook into the shooting. Hard to describe, but nothing feels impactful and has the same issue that Overwatch does; it feels like you're spraying people with a hose until somebody falls over. BR's not for me it seems (well not until one comes along that feels right at least).

    Yup added people. But silly origin overlay barely works for me so it's annoying.

    Tried Pubg PsychoSmiley?? OCE region is pretty dead though.. But vpn to SEA servers very playable. Can kill in 1 bullet in that game and even assault rifles with 3 shots. Though takes some skill to full auto.

    PUBG on appearance seems too slow. Tribes/Quake are my thing (speeeeeeeeeeeeeeeed) but arena shooters aren't a thing at the moment. Haven't touched Quake Champions in a while but even that was pretty quiet when I was playing.

    Hopefully a worthy tribes remake is done, the last one was bit meh and unreal engine was used and as per usual, terrible performance.
