Do you have an NVidia or AMD graphics card?
Both have recording software built in, both seem pretty good at capturing too.

And I am fairly certain that both can be setup to record in the background for a set time period, so you can click a couple of buttons and record that time automatically.

Yeah, I got a GTX 760. Will have to give the recording software a try. Might ask my bro when he comes by later as I think he was using it to record COD3 matches.

It is part of the GeForce Experience software I think, I have moved ship to AMD now. So can't fully remember how it works

LOL... Geforce Experience needed to be installed still. And I also need to install new Geforce drivers by the look of things.

The special Year of the Rooster event in HOTS is nigh impossible to do solo! So frustrating to do. Might forgo getting the free rooster mount since I don't see myself doing this event 25 times... successfully.

Agreed, it's just stupid.

Looks like the only way is to team up and load vs AI games. Dunno if you need to finish the game for the event to count though.

If anyone wants to band up and trial a rooster race... probably 3 or 4 of us and using fast characters like Tracer and Illidan, complete one and then quit to see if it registers and if it does, we can try doing 25 races.

The 10k gold for the golden rooster seems a bit pricey seeing how that's a whole character I could get for that amount.

The nimbus cloud mount though is pretty sweet... pity it's an expensive pack.

Read you need to finish the game too.

I just can't be that bothered.

Ah rats! I can't be bothered to do this even 25 times and finish the games too... I hardly have time to do the dailies... that's why I let abathur do it for me! lol

Guess it's just a mount at the end of the day. I have like a dozen of them by now from all the collectors editions and special unlockables they keep handing out.

They've patched the event. Able to be soloed now. I've been my 8 games daily quest this evening with Abathur of all the slow arse heroes one could use for the event and I've been able to do the event every time. Should need to do more than just dailies during the event to get the cock mount.

Just to clarify, I've been getting the event at the start over every game. And...

Yeah, I can confirm this to be the case. Decided to exit on the haunted mines map as I don't like using it with Abathur and didn't get the event.

And the rooster mount is mine now!

Been reading Y: The Last Man for most of today whilst mum's been resting so I've had Abathur play my matches with occasional intervention from moi.

So whilst this Year of the Rooster event is still going on, it's worthwhile loading up the game once per day as the quest to give you 200 gold for doing the event ones comes back each day. Easy 3000 gold or so for the remainder of the event.

Enter Lucio - good to have another healer and one form the Overwatch roster.

Yeah, looks like they're slowly working through each of the classes with the OW characters.

This'll raise the gap in gold I need to get all remaining heroes back up to 30k again.

After some serious grinding this week with dailies and brawls, and despite my modem breaking down, I'm sitting on 166k gold now. With Lucio at 10k gold, I'll need 196k gold. Hopefully, Kharazim drops down to 7k gold with Lucio introduced... close the gap a bit.

I tried getting my bro into this but all I ended up doing was adding an extra account for me to unlock free heroes on every time they have an event :(

If you guys do start playing it, use kharis' recruit a friend link to get a couple of free heroes and a stimpack to level up faster.

Completed the current event so am milking the stimpack now.

Kharazim dropped in price to 7k gold so now I only need 193k gold... just shy of 183k atm. Definitely not gonna hit 193k before the next hero comes out of course... raising the bar again.

Introducing Probius!

Just an intro/story video for now - nothing about exact abilities. From what I can guess Im thinking specialist along the gazlowe line.

Awwww! It's so cute!

I have the Probe pet for D3 from getting the LotV Digital Deluxe edition a while back. Guess I'll have to get this little fella too.

I've exceeded my 193k gold needed to get all the current heroes. I guess by the time this little fella comes out and drops to 10k gold, I should be able to hit 203k.

EDIT: I'm guessing it's a specialist unit that is focused on defense rather than sieging. Could be interesting if we're able to set up defenses across all lanes.

So he's a ranged specialist. Looks like he could be a lot of (challenging) fun.
