Because there is actually no tutorial or anything like that and some people really seem to have bigger problems with the game itself and tactics especially i try to make a "How to...?"-video series.
Fell free to leave comments, and ideas what i should show or mention in the videos, at the moment i've got the following plan:

1.) Basics - Controll Zones, Command Vehicles and the FOB http://youtu.be/qQ1JKdwIjec
2.) Basics - infantry http://youtu.be/vyvkN9KDoIQ
3.) Basics - tanks
1 -> tank-theory and tanks in citys http://youtu.be/fsx_xSzTW-M
2 -> tanks in forrests & "small tanks" http://youtu.be/41RcDFBEZgA
3 -> "medium tanks" & how to counter http://youtu.be/cA9ecUdnG1o
4 -> last man standing and final basic informations http://youtu.be/0kPfP42kHvs
4.) Basics - support
1 -> Artillery http://youtu.be/weDOlZGvFXM
2 -> Ground-Based Anti-Air http://youtu.be/MQ97R6dsm-4
5.) Basics - planes & helicopter
6.) Basics - vehicles
7.) The deck-creation

and after that sperate videos for every nations strenghts and weaknesses and working strategys

I think it's better to make basic strategy guide as second video, and then move to specific units.

Anyways, good luck.

Im not sure about that... Back then, in Wargame: European Escalation there was a focus on just a few units at the beginning of the "tutorial campagin" and i guess it wont be a to big failure to follow there until the larger scale stuff become imminent...
First things first. If people dont know the game i guess they could be overwhelmed by tmi - to much information.
Either way: the first video is up and in the first post ;)

Different strokes for different folks and such. Videos can't hurt...unless they're horribly wrong. :P

Seems like you need a little more focus. You started well but eventually it turned into OOOOO A BUTTERFLY! It just might be possible you'll need some editing software to eliminate parts where you're losing focus.

As well (from your first video) income is not dolled out every 5 seconds it is dolled out every 3 seconds.

Well troublemaker, of course you are right. Unfortunatly its a bit hard to focus if you have to think about how to say stuff plus what to say at all :mrgreen:
I guess i have to redo my infantry-video :?
At least i got a good idea for the tank-tutorial which should be way better at all... usually i just dont like cutting, but in this case is should be okay i guess

While driving I thought about your channel and it hit me, why are you broadcasting in English? You should always move to your strengths and English isn't your strength. Absolutely have them up but why not broadcast in your native tongue. The game is predominantely played by French and Eastern European, why not tackle that demographic?
