    So we get less and less TeamFFAs these days, but:

    TeamFFAs in the neutral Coliseum should distribute players to teams after the event begins; this will also allow us to make allowances for 'usually 2 team unless our #s make a 3 team actually cool'. This also ensures that we all don't play chicken on who joins first. :(

    You and I already had a discussion on what I would suggest you consider, but I figured I'd drop some more info here: do not discount how powerful lethargy is on blacken. Switching to icecoat is well and good, but I have won most of my fights off the back of the bloodfreeze route and that doesn't require you to swap away from blacken at all. I would also recommend writing a script for converting Wyrm Bloodscent reporting to a theoretucal bloodfreeze damage result (it'll teach you some nice functions if you don't already know them!) .. my advice would be to cut ~30% of the formula result to account for average cold resist.

    When you have the free time to do so, keep studying autocuring behavior. Recognize that the average player will be running basic, unmodified autocuring and because of that, you have their curing system right in front of you to learn all of its intricacies and etc. In the old days, duels were won on curing information and that is no less true today.. it's just that the info is more universally available.

    The best advice that all of us will give you underneath everything is practice, practice, practice. Get outside your comfort zone. Get as much exposure to PK scenarios as possible. Log everything and read your logs religiously. Build your system to make it easier to read these logs and pinpoint bugs or weaknesses in tracking (I.e my system tells me when I remove an aff or add an aff to my tracking table, which lets me recognize pivotal points.)

    The best way to get better at any game is to watch your replays, etc and evaluate your wins and losses intelligently. Always have a take away from every fight or log of a fight. 

    To be fair with you, your attitude is what makes it obvious you have potential. Please just hold on to that attitude and remember that getting good doesn't happen overnight​.

    I wish I could agree with Sarrius' post, and awesome it at the same time. its all very true. I absolutely loved Outrider as an all around class, its hands down one of the best professions in the game, group and 1v1. Its also a perfect 'beginner' affliction profession as I've heard it called, which was true for me, it introduced me to afflicting better, and taught me a good bit about how things can work.
    This is very true. Outrider lays the foundation for understanding affliction combat overall. It comes with a lot of useful utility and defense tools. You picked a great class to start learning to PK with, @Ahruiz.

    I love this very distinct feeling that I've finally internalized my 'new' location across the country as home. When I woke up today and went outside for some fresh air, I looked around and thought, "This is my home and it is awesome."

    The me of a year ago would not even be able to begin believing how well moving out of my home state has turned out.
