I've been making WarLight videos on YouTube for over a half a year, and Fizzer's been telling me to post them up here, so I figured I finally would.

Most of my videos include kcscrag, as I primarily do 2v2s.

Disclaimer: I never claim to be amazing at the game. I've improved a LOT in the last six months compared to when I started making videos, but as you'll see I make mistakes, just like any other player.

Kcscrag and I are currently ranked 5th in the 2v2 Ladder, and we've recorded and are uploading every single Ladder 2v2 game we've played, wins and losses. The videos feature our thought processes from the beginning of each turn to the end of each turn.

For newer or lower-to-medium skilled players, I personally think it'd be a good way to improve your own understanding of the game (just like the WarGamingLive livestreams). For higher skilled players, it might be a bit entertaining (I know that Fizzer at least seems to watch them all).

So anyways, if you're interested, my YouTube channel is http://www.youtube.com/Myth0nian and kcscrag's channel is http://www.youtube.com/kcscrag

If you want, my WarLight playlist: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL1B7AD9F257B9DC5E&feature=view_all (I warn you, the earlier videos show our ignorance from that time lol)

We both upload our own perspectives of games, so take your pick. Any suggestions for things that we can improve or anything are always appreciated, so feel free to give us any feedback you can!

What you should do is watch Gui's favorite games and tournaments and broadcast your amazement and disbelief at his strategic brilliance. That is what the world wants to see.

Thank you, oh magnificent Gui-clone, for gracing this topic.

Regrettably, I cannot find the original Gui account at this time. It is almost as if he were a chameleon, hiding from all searches I can query.

Good work with this! I have seen you improve a lot lately! Used to, you guys were a team that I figured wasn't very good and I was right early on, and now you guys are a very dangerous team that can play with just about anybody. Not to mention, I like watching your videos and watch how other people play the game and what they think as they play it! Keep up the good work!

Also forgot to mention my upload schedule.

We upload WarLight videos 4 times a week: Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday. The other three days I upload other videos (and KC usually uploads 1v1s or tournament games if you want to watch some of those).

Thanks! We really learned a lot from that first match against you and Lolowut, and it's always a lot of fun facing you in games!

I have no idea what you're talking about. All I know of Gui is the old legends that tell of his triumphs, but have heard rumors of prophecies alluding that he is always watching and waiting, and which foretell of his return on a blue moon.

i find it spooky that you would use this as a simile for who gui is currently without knowing who he is because he IS the chameleon

That being a coincidence is about as likely as the sun being a giant flaming lizard that can change color, hence the sunspots.

Pure coincidence, I assure you, just as the benevolent Buddha would bless Mark Twain's sequel to The Adventures of Tom Sawyer.

Back on topic, though, today was when we uploaded the final part of our ladder game versus farragut and Feel_it_turn. Saturday, we will begin uploading our game versus DaBird and saftschachtel. :)

I'll make a post here whenever I release a video.

Thanks Mythonian for taking the time to record all these games and continuing to do so on a regular basis. These videos are great tools for anyone that plays Warlight. I've noticed throughout the series there is a common theme of having fun while winning and losing. This is most important and should remain priority for every player. While I haven't seen all the videos I'd ask:

1. What was your favorite game to record, start to finish.
2. What was your most memorable moment from any game.
3. Any games you were very confident you would win (or lose), then suddenly you lost (or won)?

Almost related to your channel, also thanks for the recent days of hosting and/or streaming real time tournaments. This is a new element of Warlight I'm glad has been accepted by the community and becomes more and more popular each week.

Just uploaded the first part of our game against DaBird and saftschachtel:

1[/uuGmsugGmXtYh6bpC]. What was your favorite game to record, start to finish.
Not sure about the favorite one, but the one versus Lolowut/JSA (second ladder game we uploaded) was pretty much what led to all the livestreams and WarGamingLive being formed.
2. What was your most memorable moment from any game.
The clips in our intro are there for a reason. :P

Against Farragut and Feel_it_turn, kcscrag hits Brazil with enough to leave exactly 1 troop behind, and I hit it with 2 after that to capture the territory. Perfectly planned and executed. (ladder 18, part 2, 16 minutes, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FxuW1N6wp9c )

Then, against Pandora and eliod... "turn 8 was the stuff of dreams" -Fizzer (ladder 10, part 2, 14 minutes, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X7Qt_X_cgsM )
3. Any games you were very confident you would win (or lose), then suddenly you lost (or won)?
Erm... Well, against Nord and Artham, we thought we had the advantage from picks and the first two turns or so, but then... we suddenly didn't... xD

I watch your guys' games all the time. They really helped me when I first started, and they still help me get better. More people should do this.

Our next match was against JurassicPark and Conquistadors. First part will probably be released tonight.

Yes, thank you for doing this Mythonian, it is truly a great help to the Warlight communnity. Plus, it makes it that much more fun to play against you and kcskraig knowing afterwards you have a chance to hear the opponents perspective.

I actually use the video of Chris and I vs. you two as my link! Although it helps that we played one of our best games against you guys ;)

No... William the Conqueror (or Guillaume) was an illegitimate child, known as William the Bastard....

In fact one of Gui's previous names is William the Bastard in French.
