It’s Burn Out Season!

Let’s finish off the year where we started – with good intentions and habits that reflect that. We should not wait for January to make adjustments and resolutions. Let’s stay committed to this year ’round!¬†

OW | Diamond ūüíé

At the end of Season 13, I was very frustrated with my progress in OW so I decided to make a commitment to play Competitive as often as I could (I had hundreds of hours logged in QP) and to play with the intention to climb. I’ve always been a solid gold into platinum player…

Why is Battlefield 4 so broken?

I’m not sure any one has the answer to that question. It seems inconceivable that a franchise game, the fourth one in, has this many issues. We have become game testers for developers.
