For Honor – Cinematic 2v1 looks like an action movie sequence

Nobushi is one of the flashiest classes in For Honor. Combined that with a dangerous 2 vs. 1 (leaving the Nobushi surrounded) and a skilled player calm enough to identify the correct play and you get a really beautiful moment. The Nobushi in this clips switches back and forth between opponents, keeping each and bay and damaging them effectively with DoT effects. The result is one of the coolest bits of For Honor gameplay. It looks like a commercial for the game!

Shoutouts to @h20Delirious for this cool looking moment. Keeping cool in a 2 v 1 is always difficult but it looks so sweet once it’s pulled off.

COD: Modern Warfare — The mind games are real

Description:

FPS games are fast paced and extremely cut throat. Players rely on twitch instincts to react immediately to on-screen enemies, shooting first and asking questions later.

Which is why whenever a stealth play happens in the middle of a match, we pause and take notice. In this clip, one player artfully avoids detection even at point blank range, resisting the urge to kill the enemy. Instead, our highlight player waits until the objective is placed so he can disarm it and win the round immediately. So nice.

Shoutouts to @PmL_Tokes for this awesome play. I can’t believe the patience it took to pull this off.

Breakaway: The beauty of a sport and PvP combined.

Have you heard of Breakaway? If not, you should drop everything, including reading this post and play it.

Described as a Team Battle Sport, Breakaway is a fusion of traditional sports goals (get the ball into the place for a point) and MOBA style team combat. The result is frenzied, highly competitive, and extremely tactical

This clip gives you a little taste of the action Breakaway has to offer. The Hero wearing the cowboy hat is Rawlins– think of him like an offensive mid-range hero. In this clip, he has a spec of HP left and literally if he gets hit once, he dies. Dying would be extremely problematic for his team, as 2 of his allies are already dead and the other is very low hp as well.

In Breakaway, when a team gets wiped, the other team gets a point.

So, in a moment of calm greatness, the Rawlins player doesn’t run away or try to survive. He grabs the ball, jukes past 3 enemy heroes, and throws the ball into the score zone perfectly.

What a sweet play! Check out Breakaway if you haven’t at their website here. It is seriously a play and PvP junkies will love it.

Sometimes, you just have to wave your axes around and kill multiple opponents right? This clip features some magnificent Berserker play and is a great resource for those looking to up your game and try out what many agree is that hardest class to learn.

Remember, the best defense is a good offense!

This mixup is so nasty. Ever sick of Ken throwing haymaker Shoryukens every time he gets knocked down? @MFMagnus has the solution for Akuma mains. This flashy mixup delivers a cross-up and fail-safe defense to a mashing Shoryuken Ken.

Shoutouts to the Kens who will face this online and feel compelled to switch characters. You are becoming a better person.

 

 

Street Fighter 5: A perfect can happen any time

Description:

There is a saying in the Fighting game community that a perfect can happen anytime. What this means is that even when you have 1 pixel of health yet, you shouldn’t give up because you always have the option of perfecting your opponent– defeating them without getting hit. Think of it like a reverse sweep after already being down 2 matches in a best of 5. All it takes is winning 3 in a row.

This clip gives us the perfect example of why you should never give up. The Claw player in this clip obviously thinks that victory is theirs. So much so, they opt for the lazy win by chipping the Alex player to death with their Super. However, after blocking and living with just a shread of health, Alex goes into beast mode.

Staying calm, Alex pulls off the necessary execution and deliveries a devastating series of combos and reads resulting in a gnarly 0-t0-death comeback. This is what Street Fighter was made for.

Shout outs to TeddieDriver for this amazing clip. Keep up the work in those salt mines.

This clip proves that there is always a creative way to BM. There is something oddly satisfying about the rhythm in this clip. The whimsy of it all begs the question: how did they know this would work?

A gentle lob and a satisfying BONK– this is PvP greatness.

Thanks to twibkidx for sharing this clip. We want to see more like it.
