For better or worse, you're going to be seeing and hearing a lot more of me over the next couple of weeks, this is the first of the videos I'm putting up.

Firstly, though, I have a facebook page now! Not much on it so far, and it's going to slightly overlap the Random Musings Thread, but I'll do what I can to keep it a bit different and worth 'Liking'. So, back to the Hatch.

Over E3 last month, we tried out live-streaming on the larger scale for the first time. Though the initial intent was simply to stream the exhibition matches, it was quickly determined that watching the same trailers repeatedly in between the matches was starting to become a little uninteresting for our intrepid viewers, so we started looking around for things to fill in a bit of time. Some eyes fell upon me, so in company with Anna Prosser, we commandeered Lord_Farquad and Nagatron's computers for a short while. What follows is an impromptu, but I think fairly accurate (Although I get off to a bad start, confusing the Ford Mark 1 with the Van Dorn and Maxwell M1917s), overview of a number of vehicles in the US tech tree. Running time, about 18 minutes.

I agree with Khagan. She had no real interest, which sucks, but your presentation was good. Liked you on fb.

Hey, I'm desperate. I'm happy enough if someone even pretends to be interested.

Event accounts get everything and nearly unlimited gold. It's why it's worth swinging by our stand even if you're already a player, you can test drive tanks you don't have yet.

Do I hear a hint of British in that accent? :Smile_great:

Definitely sounds to me like a hybrid of more than one accent.

What I am interested in is in the top left corner that says:

Mission 1 of 8
Resume Training.


Now what might that be for?

It's from the tutorial.

The comments on the Youtube page are interesting and tend to vary. Get enough people behind keyboards...

Absolutely fascinating. I also really enjoyed the one on German armour which I saw elsewhere as part of the E3 coverage.

You know we love you. :Smile_honoring:

Loved the T95 story too. How to lose a 100 tonne tank, indeed.

Close but no cigar, to be sure.
