I was a life-time single-player gamer, and I hadn’t played any competitive games…

My name is Mohammed Magdi (Magdy Doze) & this is my story 🙂

My background

I was a life-time single-player gamer, and I hadn’t played any competitive games what so ever and I hadn’t had any idea about them before. About the way how it feels playing them and the excitement of playing with other enthusiastic people around the world that share the same passion as me.

So I’ve decided to enter that world for the first time ever by buying Overwatch in February 5th 2018. I can’t express the excitement I had when I played the first tutorial and the very first match at Dorado where I played as Soldier: 76 and killed everybody. My excitement was insane. Little did I know about the fact that it was a match against normal-level bots 😀

I’ve continued playing after that in quick play till level 25, and played my first placement matches and managed to get to Silver 1804 SR. I was shocked by the result & I thought that I would get a lot below that, & again little did I know that was just the beginning of going down the hill!

I had entered a losing streak & got deranked to 1000 SR that became later 800 SR!, I was totally frustrated & didn’t know what to do or who to blame & the situation was totally chaotic!

My experience with Omnicoach

I went to Youtube to see if there are any guides to follow to clean up this mess! I had watched a lot of videos. I found a channel (Overwatchdojo) with videos that were short but full of useful and real tips. They really helped me to get a new approach to the game & fix a lot of issues around my gaming setup & settings (sesnitivity, DPI…etc). They caught my attention a lot so I liked to know more about them. Who they are & why they are so different from the rest of Overwatch channels (specially that they are very very underrated subscribers-count wise), so I had checked their website & social media & joined their discord server, & saw among these links a link to a website called https://omnicoach.gg/ The site was obviously still in the making because it was all plane white & had a few sections here & there about what it was, & then I saw:  AI coach for Overwatch?! That hit me like a rock! How is that even possible?! Then I saw the newsletter section to keep me updated about this project so I typed my email. I wasn’t sure if that was an ongoing project or just an old site… My exams had come, so I had stopped watching Overwatchdojo videos & playing Overwatch until that one happy day when I was invited to join the alpha tester group for Omnicoach. OMG , I was so happy that it is actually an ONGOING PROJECT!

I then began to work with them & I really was very lucky to do so, the team was very enthusiastic and sweet, although I was just giving them feedback & recording VODs for training the AI of the app, but I really felt like I’m one of the team 🙂

Throughout the whole process I was practicing & playing the game with the help of Omnicoach app. I wouldn’t have thought for a second that a single tip could help me as much it did. Omnicoach is all about (experience) AND that experience is YOURS. It is pointing out the issue that you had at the exact time, frame & hero played with. 

Final thoughts

I’ve climbed from 800 SR to low silver/high bronze in just one season, because the issue that prevented me from climbing was a game sense and not mechanical one (which requires a lot of time to develop). Of course I still have a long way to go & dozens of tips to grasp to implement in my games, but as I’ve learned from one of overwatchdojo videos, you should focus on just one tip to improve in until it becomes a second nature before practicing the next tip.

I’m super excited for the future & me learning & practicing new tips along the way & climbing all the way to GM/top 500!, As long as Omnicoach is with me nothing is impossible (or just put exams away, I wish there is an AI app for this lol)

until next time when I get there..
