Guide To Improving With Plays

Many of the top esports teams in the world use Plays because it is the best way to practice, improve, and win more games.  The Plays app lets you see exactly what you saw in game, hear exactly what you heard in game, and review every moment.  If you want to spot leaks in your game, reviewing your gameplay is the best way to do it.

Here are some tips on how to use Plays to help you improve more quickly:

Use instant replay to instantly review your gameplay
One of the best ways to use instant replay is to review what happened right after you die. For example, in games like Overwatch or League of Legends you might have 30 seconds after you die before you respawn. That’s a perfect time to review how you died, see what abilities your teammates and opponents used, and to try to figure out if you could have done something differently to avoid that death.

Get in the habit of reviewing your gameplay after each match
Plays will automatically record your gaming sessions once you start up a game, so you don’t have to remember to turn it on.  Just open the Plays app after every game to review and analyze your gameplay.

Slow down footage to analyze the scene
Slow down your recording to analyze your gameplay more easily.  See everything that happened without having to pause.   It’s much easier to see what your opponents did, how you responded, and discover ways to improve.  The best part is you can witness that headshot connect down to the last pixel.

Automatic pins for kills, assists, deaths, and objectives (certain games)
Plays automatically tracks the moments that matter most with built in pins for kills, deaths, assists, and objectives. One of the best ways to improve is to reduce your unnecessary deaths.   After every match, look at how you died and see what you could have done differently to avoid that death.

Use manual bookmark to review key moments
You’ll find times when you want to revisit a key moment in the game.  You can use hotkeys to create manual bookmarks.  For example, maybe you were 1 tick away from killing your opponent.  Review that play to see if you could have done something differently to walk away with a kill.

Share videos with peers
Clip moments and share them with your peers. Show them what you did right or ask them what you did wrong. Peers can leave comments on videos.  Send them your clips and ask for feedback.
