Extra credit dress community contributors playing in the stream with appropriate uniforms for their side with faces covered by scarf, gas mask etc so we can occupy our time until the open beta announcement with guessing​ who our community sourced WW-II Stig is.

10/10 idea, someone find Razzman a peaked cap :lol: .

I get that livestreams are all big and exciting and that's how Paradox do things but I wouldn't mind seeing a battle replay with commentary over it. It's not like they pick questions out of the chat that we don't already know the answer to most of the time. Heck, they can prerecord the replay and then livestream the commentary while showing off the new replay system (even if it's the same as the Wargame one).
What if Wargame stuck to timeframe?

Designing a game is in essence an exercise in creating a rule set that generates desired behavior in the players. The problem is that when you're creating a rule set with a behaviour in mind, you become massively biased to how the game is played and this bias becomes a restriction other players don't experience.

It is that age old divide between sandboxers who plays a game's theme and the exploiters who play the game's rules. The job of the designer is to tune the rules so that both groups play the same game, which is very difficult because you as the designer don't want to find exploits, you want the game to match your vision.

He didn't play very well but then he didn't speak English very well and he was having to do the same sort of talking about what he was doing that hindered the Paradox guys. I didn't see him make any particular clangers though, no knifefighting Challengers, just the usual inattentive play and large point floats that would probably result from any of us having to handle ourselves remarkably well an interview in our second language while playing a round of Wargame.

He plays well usually, but there he had to do it while speaking, and in a foreign language.
I liked how his howt once commented that the more he tlaked, the more ground he was losing ... :lol:

Alexis plays better than many in the studio so they can't make fun of him.
I once suggested to negotiate my raise through a 1v1 on Red Dragon, I remember his answer :
"Good idea, but only if you convince everyone to make the same deal !" :mrgreen:
