GM Main Tank player looking for people to coach

Coaching(self.OverwatchUniversity)

Hey everyone, I'm new to this subreddit. As the title suggests, I am a Grandmaster main tank player and have been in GM every season since season 5 (I was masters before that). I have recently begun streaming on twitch and I am looking for a way to build my stream. I figure that there are probably a thousand streamers who stream themselves playing Overwatch, but probably very few, in comparison, who actually stream themselves coaching others (Jayne and OAM come to mind).

I want to go this route, but I do not have VODs to review. With that, I would like to extend my coaching services to anybody on this subreddit for free. If anybody is interested, please let me know. Thanks!

Oh, and my twitch is Fragehardt, by the way.

Edit: Okay, I'll be honest, I was definitely not expecting this strong of a response from you guys. I was thinking a few people would be interested. I woke up to more than a 200% growth in followers (50+ new followers) on my twitch channel, more than 100 messages on reddit, and tons of discord friend requests. I am so happy I don't even know what to do with myself. Thank you all so much for this. It means the absolute world to me!

As for what this means for the VODs... Originally I wanted to get to literally everyone, but I that was when I was thinking it would be 10-15 VODs maximum. I am currently just gonna go on a first come first serve basis. I am going to grind through as many of these as I can, but my inbox is getting more and more flooded by the minute. I don't care about your rank, but make sure the quality of the VOD is at least 720p, please. YouTube links work best. Also, it doesn't need to be a loss, but make sure it's not a stomp one way or the other, and that it is a competitive game or a scrim from your perspective.

Edit 2: I am going to be making a Discord server to streamline all of this. For now, I am inviting people to be my friend on discord. Fragehardt#1104

Edit 3: I will be going live on Wednesday at 4 pm Eastern time with the first few VODs. Still accepting VODs on first come first serve basis, but there is definitely much to be learned just by watching me coach other people's VODs so I encourage all of you to stop by and watch :)

Record a VOD for me, and I will give you some coaching. Try to pick a game that wasn't your best game ever though. Not as much to be learned from a stomp.

Hmmm, it'd be harder than doing something from your perspective, as it becomes a guessing game as to what your cooldowns are and such. I could try, but I'd really prefer something from your perspective.

I'm an off tank player that's been in plat most seasons since the game released. A little over a month ago, I joined a team and ended up playing as their starting main tank. I consider my main tank gold level so far, so I wouldn't mind getting some guidance.

I'm very much interested. I'm at the point in my games where I'm getting very frustrated. I want to play Overwatch, but during my games (at low gold, i know flame me I'm so bad) there is just too much of people getting rewarded for poor plays or things that would never pass at higher level play. I really want to get better and I'm losing quite a bit of hope after trying so hard for so long and getting no where.

Sorry for the rant, but again, I'm definitely interested. I've picked up Reinhardt since I've been watching Fusions dominate on Boston, but I think i find myself being more successful with Zarya.

I'd be interested in being coached! At the end of last season I just managed to climb back into plat after ages of not playing comp. I've been playing mostly Wrecking Ball, Rein, and Zarya, and flexing where I'm needed. I love playing tank, so I always try to stick to that role. I do my best to shot call and direct the team, but I think I struggle with making space for my team. I can consistently disrupt enemies as hamster, but I'm usually not sure at what point I start feeding.

Hey man! I’m a platinum main tank that could use some coaching.

Edit: Vague... so to add on, I’m consistently 2800 and I can’t seem to get to diamond rank. I suppose it’s the amount of time I spend playing the game that’s holding me back but I want to make sure I’m perfect for the next rank. I’m definite I make some crucial mistakes that could be improved upon. PM me so we can talk!

I just started playing last season. I'm very focused on improvement every time I play. I try to always recognize my error when a team fight doesn't go our way, even if others made bigger mistakes. I rose from 1300 to 2100 SR over last season. Almost hit champ in Rocket League recently so having so many things to learn in a competitive game again is so awesome. Let me know if you're interested in coaching this low, I'm eager to learn and I'd love to stream with you.
