8+2 questions with Omnicoach

Daniel (its_sh0ck)

Tell us a bit about how long have you been playing video games? Why do you like playing them? How often do you play?

I started playing video games at an early age, i was like 3 or 4 years old, so i’ve been playing for a while now, at first i played a lot of racing games, because i loved (and still do) cars. The racing itself obviously had a competitive aspect to it, and this competitive feeling kind of sticked around with me during my gaming ‘career’. It doesn’t matter to me if i play with friends or alone i like to challange myself in games, the feeling of taking the chance and succeeding is extremely rewarding, so often times my playstyle is aggressive. I like being challanged and overcoming that challange, that’s why i play games. I used to play daily but my university studies are more important now, so i only play on weekends now.

When have you started to play Overwatch? Why do you like it?

When Overwatch came out i didn’t really care about it, i’ve seen some memes online so i knew a few character names, but nothing really engaging. Then on a summer day i went over to my friend’s house and when i arrived he was playing overwatch, it was the first summer event and he was playing lucióball. I wanted to try it as well so i played some lucióball games then a few quickplay matches and i was hooked. A few days later i got a copy for myself and played for 6-8 hours every day. I like overwatch because there are really high skill ceiling heroes, and overall the game can get pretty hard at times where there is a need for high focus, and i love being in that ‘beastmode’.

Why have you decided to try out Omnicoach? What was your first impression about Omnicoach before uploading any videos?

When i first saw omnicoach it was in its early stages (a year before its release), so i just signed up for later testing, it seemed like a really cool idea to me, and i was curious how well will it be implemented.

After using Omnicoach and receiving your first analysis, did it give you insights, info you were looking for? Did you get closer to any of your goals by using Omnicoach?

Before overwatch i played a lot of other shooters, but those games didn’t have abilities, so omnicoach helped me to utilize those more effectively, what i wouldn’t notice by myself, so it helped me become a better, or more effective player.

What are the benefits of Omnicoach, what do you like the most?

Unlike a human coach its online 24/7 most of the time, and always objective, because there’s no human interaction between player and coach.

What do you think are the disadvantages of Omnicoach?

I honestly can’t think of any major disadvantages of using omnicoach, maybe it doesn’t feel that personal as a human coach, but i don’t think that’s a big deal.

Do you have a main hero? Why do you like to play him/her the most?

My main is Widowmaker, and i picked her up because before i got overwatch i played a lot of snipers in other games, so she seemed like the go to hero, after i learned about her lore i started to like her much more as a character too. I play her, beacuse i’m somewhat experienced, with her game mechanics and she’s a high risk high reward hero with a high skill ceiling, and i enjoy clicking heads 4Head .

(+1) When were you the most proud of yourself? Do you remember any particular moment, a sick play? 

So it was a game on nepal, and I was playing zenyatta, we lost the first map, and i felt like our dps wasn’t cutting it and i got really upset and switched to widow, my mental state and the desire to win ended up working and we managed to come back, win the match and i ended with 29 scoped critical hits during the 2 maps i played widow on, getting 9 votes on the card screen and overall feeling like solid gold.

(+2) Anything else you play besides Overwatch? Would you be interested in Omnicoach if we provided coaching for other games?

I still play CS:GO a lot, and some indie games, but i think CS could use an omnicoach like system.
