Mondays With Mets

Post by Mets » Mon Sep 25, 2017 9:42 pm

Episode #1 of Monday With Mets is ready for release. This first episode focuses on the fundamentals of Zealot Hockey and is highly recommended for any new or probe player to watch!

I've split the episode into two halves, because I recommend not watching it in one shot since it's a lot of information to digest. I may also stream them on Mondays during the ZHL season.

Part 1 focuses on settings and ability usage. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v3jgWlyvtCE
[+] first half of episode 1
Part 2 focuses on clearing, breakaways, and rotation. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=miK7lVbWlU0
[+] second half of episode 1
Recommended viewer skill level: new to fringe ZHL-level.


Episode #2: Defense

*NEW* Episode #3: Offense

Episode 3: Offense https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o9bjHGJ2L5g
[+] Episode 3
Thanks to ZachSmack and Eldersage for helping me out with the first episode. If any probe or new players have anything they'd like me to go over in a future episode, let me know.

I apologize for some static sound coming from my microphone, I'm going to try and fix that for future episodes. I hope you all enjoy and some people find it helpful.

The first thing you mention is activating cursor boost which I highly discourage using if you have high latency since flicking doesnt work at high ms and you might end up boosting in very weird directions

How high of latency? I've had no issue with cursor boost on EU at 80-100ms. I don't think any goalie in ZHL doesn't use cursor boost, be it on home server or cross-server. I think if you have high latency, if anything would mean you want cursor boost even more, since it eliminates an extra step (right clicking.)

80-100 is already bad for cursor boost IMO, if u move ur cursor fast and boost u might end up boosting somewhere else because ur cursor position was registered 80-100ms earlier so it's a different position than the final one

But if you're not using cursor boost, then you have to turn to boost in the direction you want to boost, which would be even more delayed than cursor boost because it's two steps, instead of one. You shouldn't really be moving your cursor a ton as goalie anyway, you should only be boosting post to post the vast majority of the time. The added delay on not having cursor boost when trying to save a 1t, if you're already delayed to begin with, is just too great.

Can anyone confirm that this is how it works?
It's hard to believe because if it did work like that, then neither my right clicks nor my puck shots would ever be aimed towards the place where my mouse cursor is located at the time I issued those commands. And I can't think of any reason that would be any different for cursor boost. :o
Or I srsly misunderstood something. :?

Does anyone else receive some kind of error when trying to play the video? Not even a "youtube" button to get to the youtube page. Same for most youtube videos posted on this forum lately...

I gave the link to vids to a new player today.

I would suggest try to make next videos with even more detailed explanations.

Yes, try yourself, quickly move your cursor to other side and press z.
