Thanks to everyone who participated in the stream!
I'll do another one next Tuesday and maybe turn this into a weekly event.
For those who missed it, the video was saved to youtube but will not be advertised.

With all that out of the way, let's get to the real meat of this post:

GDave versus Hi, a Td match that come down to the last Minigunner!
Schroedinger's Minigunner, if you will.

Never before have I seen a game this close!

Cheers :)

We're closing in on 100 shoutcasts, folks!

Thanks for recommending the AMHOL versus .1 match on Portent,
I finally got around to casting it, and it's definitely been an entertaining 30 minutes!

,showcasing how important naval control can be even if your opponent has 90% of the map.

Cheers!

You're welcome! Glad to see navy as it currently exists get some good action at moderate amounts of units. Things we don't usually see like the IC+naval Transporter.

I think seeing these naval plays alongside land battles in action (e.g. Hi vs Frame Limiter) can help to highlight what the true issues are for better balance changes without affecting naval play for the worst.

In this game whilst naval had a supporting role, it was the air units that finished the game. Hence it wasn't naval alone that ended the game, and that's what I'm hoping to see with the "partial naval" maps; navy being a supporter to other unit types.

I'm trying to fix it. The switch to OBS ahs at least fixed the frame size issues, now all I need is to tone down the compression.

This week we're back in Tiberian Dawn with an action-packed 1v1 between ACM and Binary!

Sorry for the blurry video quality, I still need to figure out the quality settings in OBS.

.1 and I have played a LOT of games against each other and are basically evenly matched. This was by far the closest game we've played and we both had fun playing it.

Hey everyone!
With the distinct lack of SoScared streams at the moment, I'm trying to fill the void by hosting a (for now) bi-weekly stream on youtube.
I'll go live today from 5pm UTC!
We will do 1v1 practice and go over the playtest changes.

Cheers and hoping to see you there!

I keep the videos as unlisted, because I don't want to clutter the inbox of my viewers with random streams.
For those interested, I'll regularly post the links to the streams here for your viewing pleasure.
Here goes the first:

In other news, the first Match Of The Month coproduction with SoScared has been released!
This is also the first playtest match I have covered on my channel, so I took some time to go over the stance changes as well:

That game on Nuclear Winter around 1:40:00 should definitely make it to your shoutcast :P Soviet tech comebacks are too good to not be casted.

Can't cast my own games, I already know the outcome :p

I finally got around to releasing parts of my casting backlog;
here's Orb versus Unano, I think it was submitted over two months ago.

As always, thanks for your submissions!

In other news, RAGL is about to start, and I'll try producing another RAGL Academy series.

Cheers!

You will never guess what unit has been the game winner (neither for who)
