Mistacarta on How Team Chemistry and Adapting... by WWG

Playing H1Z1: King of the Kill by yourself is actually a ton of fun. If you're Mistacarta from Panda Global, you're most likely streaming the game, having a good time while hanging out with chat and winning a few matches along the way. Carta's streams are fast paced even though he's very laid back in person. He loves going for the kill even when he's outnumbered. He's thoroughly entertaining to watch.

If you've ever played H1Z1, you'll know that when you play a solo game, you have a kill or be kill mentality more than any other variation of the game. You look out for yourself and nobody else. 

In the case of the H1Z1: Fight for the Crown tournament, Carta is going to have to look after others if he wants his team to survive. "100% you have to tone it back. When it comes to fives your team really relies on you so if you get over aggressive and you get picked, your team is four up and that puts you at a disadvantage," said Carta.

Team chemistry goes a long way. If you try to create a super team with five strong personalities that don't necessarily click, you won't go anywhere. For Panda Global, they've got team chemistry figured out. "I think we click really well. We have really good team chemistry," said Carta about Panda Global. "That's a real positive aspect when it comes to H1Z1 fives because there's always a lot going on and when your team works well together and they get everything together well it's a good thing."

For Carta, switching over to fives has required a bit of work. "Solos you can mess around a lot," said Carta. "There's a lot of aggression you can do, but when it comes to competitive fives you have to be on your game at all times. You have to be aware, you have to be thinking a lot. It's really about staying on your toes."

While Carta seems like a laid back guy, don't let that fool you as he's not afraid to spit some trash talk at others. "There's been trash talk since the announcement of the LAN. Every team gets announced and there's trash thrown at everybody," said Carta. "For me personally, cKlass from Strictly Business. We go back in forth in scrims. It's a good rivalry," Carta said.

"He's gotta watch out for my two taps."

He may have targeted this for cKlass specifically but everyone needs to take heed when the H1Z1: Fight for the Crown tournament rolls along.
