    In this video I explain my thought process as an experienced LA player.

    Yes, great video. Helpful stuff for others.

    Some make videos just to show off "skill" but this one show off EXPERIENCE
    It is just as important.

    I really liked it

    He probably has a big screen.

    I can't see stealthed infiltrators at extreme distances. But my brother at some point played a few video's we shot on my PC on his screen, and suddenly he could see infiltrators at 200+m. Simply having a big, good screen can help your game a mile and a half.

    Didn't you already post this Iridar? I thought I had made a comment on it.

    I posted it in gameplay discussion as well, this is where you commented it :)

    I have a 23.6 inch screen with 1920x1080 resolution, not sure if that's considered big nowadays or not. I sort of pride myself on being able to find and kill cloaked infiltrators, but it's not really about seeing the cloak, it's about knowing where to look for the cloak.

    There are many clues that infiltrators leave: voice, tracers, muzzle flashes, minimap blimps, shot sounds (even suppressed shots can be heard), cloak sounds most of all. All of that gives a rough idea where an infiltrator is, and if you know where to look for seeing a cloaked infil is much easier.

    That said, cloaked infiltrators are super hard to see on Indar sand, for example, or anywhere against the light, and Infiltrators are visible at all around within 40-50m.

    After that it comes down to predicting his movement/position, and tracking cloak shimmers when infiltrator gets shot.
