Do we have an ETA on the next (afternoon) segment of this surprisingly fun yet educational video?

I suspect the intend to post all the 20min segments first then release the big Afternoon segment part for download with it's first 20min segment.

Which sucks because that is going to be quite a while.

Make this available to download via torrent.

Bittorrent is the best download manager, and you'd save some bandwith.

Thanks Chief.

But is the editing getting worse? In the old videos we had black screens with no questions. Now we don't even have black screens, the interview just freezes for a few seconds and then jumps to another question.

Also, Part  doesn't have an outro. It just ends abruptly.

Given the turnaround time on even minor edits, I decided to go with what we have, flawed though it may be. IMHO, the release was delayed far too long as it was.

These guys remind me of my history teacher from high school. Once they get on a role and talk about stuff they enjoy it's awesome. If I ever got a degree in teaching, I'm 98% sure it'd be in history. The other 2% being science. Very informative, just great stuff to watch.

very informative stuff and quite entertaining, i hope you guys keep up with this educational element, as it is my most favorite part. I bet an easily obtainable weekly podcast would be a great success. you could even just narrate articles, and throw up the audio link along with the article.

Anyway cant wait for more of this! keep up the good work.

Err, maybe I'm an idiot, but I can't find part 5, neither from the list of most recent posts on the Wargaming USA site, nor from URL manipulation.

SUGGESTION -  global interaction between players.
WoT developers could create one garage with one set of researched / purchased vehicles to be available to a players
REGARDLESS of which "client" (NA, EU, etc) they are currently playing?
North American WoT enthusiast could then try their skills against European counter parts and vice verse.
Both versions of game can be installed on the same computer, simply in separate folders or partitions.
The same user name and password work for all clients as well.
The connection speed on modern internet setup as in USA  for NA client is about 100 ping; for EU 200 ping.
Small difference and price to pay for a chance to try ones skills against players from another continent.
As it is right now WoT gamers are completely separated / alienated by geographical location.
More over if a player wants to install and run another client, he or she must start from the bottom of the tech tree
researching and purchasing all the vehicles again instead of using their already acquired selection from previous client version.
Please consider my suggestion.

Straight up classy panel. More of this stuff please, it's fascinating, and this is TV worthy (that might even be an insult these days :Smile_veryhappy: )

When you go to the homepage, and you click the link "click here to start watching". That's part 5.

Watched the first 4 parts and it was great! tried downloading the full version, but firefox said the download was complete @ 698mb. which of course its not. Anyone have a torrent for this?

keep up the good work!

I could totally see this being aired on the history or military channel.


edit: got it to download fine in IE

I have downloaded the first installment WGA has available twice now, and both times I get an some kind of error check when trying to unzip the file (corrupted). I could understand it doing it once, but twice? Why is this even zipped if you only save 1% worth of space? Unless you will be adding all the files to this one zip eventually... Guess I will just watch the streamed versions...

I give up.  The main portal site says part six is up, but looking at all the posts for August on the OTT site indicates no such thing:

http://wargamingamer...om/OTT/2012/08/

I would really hate for the people who organized this panel to be convinced it was a waste of time just because the site it's hosted on is such an impossible mess to navigate.  The content of these panel discussions is really excellent, but it's like pulling teeth to get to it!
