    Default Warlords of Walsall - UK Battle Reports and streamed games

    Hi everyone,

    We at the Warlords of Walsall (A Birmingham based UK gaming club) have recently started streaming our games and uploading them to YouTube.

    We only have Mk3 content on there at the moment with around 12 videos (including 5 from our recent Midlands Open 2016 tournament) which you can enjoy. We are constantly looking to improve the quality of the recordings and the stream so if you have any feedback please let me know.

    We will try to stream games on our club nights every Friday evening from 6pm GMT on our twitch channel twitch.tv/warlordsofwalsall and then I will upload them to YouTube the following day with the lists of both players in the description.

    Every Thursday lunchtime we put up a little twitter poll to decide the streamed matchup so follow us on there to get involved! Our twitter username is @WalsallWarlords

    Another friday club night and another game for your enjoyment, this one pitted Wurmwood against Irusk2 on The Pit. As always this match was voted on by our twitter followers so if you want to decide on what match we show on the stream follow us on Twitter @WalsallWarlords.

    You can see the game on our YouTube channel here: https://youtu.be/jDiFTeJOQd0

    We have another video for your viewing pleasure with Reznik2 vs Sturgis2 playing Take and Hold. The game can be viewed here: https://youtu.be/oH7iYMQlAXk

    We are looking into doing commentary on games in the future, at this point probably after the UK nationals. We will upload the game as usual but then additionally upload a video with the game (probably with an increased speed) and commentary of either the players involved or other people at the club willing to do it.

    As always, if you have any feedback on the videos please let us know!

    Because these are real time games their length makes them a little laborious to watch. The Irusk2 vs Wurmwood game was interesting and quite good but I find myself wanting to skip through parts of it quite often. An earlier game with Sloan vs Kreoss3 was much worse (though that was down to player errors on rules). Besides the length it's sometimes a bit confusing what the terrain is sometimes. The 2D terrain is good because of the decreased risk of knocking models over, accidental movement and clean measurement but from the viewers perspective I keep getting confused whether an area is a forest, hill, rough terrain or rubble. I think a couple of games the players went over the scenery ahead of the game but I didn't catch it for others.

    Rather than a commentary I'd like to see a brief review from the players. The Irusk2 vs Wurmwood game did this immediately after the game as they talked about what Ghetorix should have done and when would have been a better time to pop their feats. With a little more time to think on it after the game it would be quite nice to hear a short recap from the players about what they were happy or disappointed about with the game.

    I agree on the length of the videos which is why i am looking to do the shorter version of the games with the commentary/discussion over the top alongside the full length games for those interested in watching those. As for the terrain, it never occurred to me that this could cause confusion because its terrain i'm familiar with. I will actually get the players at the start of the game to call out what terrain is what and also (while i'm thinking about it) to also give a brief run down of their lists as well to show what things are and where they are. I understand it is a bit blurry, and the lighting isn't amazing and i'm trying my best with those as i go along.

    I agree. I would be more interested in a recap discussion and a dissection of the game rather than just a commentary as the game goes along. When we can get around to doing one i'd like to hear what you think of it.

    EDIT: Also for those videos i'll put some effort into the edit to make them more presentable than just the recording of the stream itself.

    Next game is up! It was Doomshaper3 vs Dr Arkadius, the link can be found here: https://youtu.be/9fJanE1Sj5A

    Some future things to take note of

    1. It's now getting a bit darker in the venue we play at (understandable as it is a church and we play in the evenings) and so i'll be looking at a cost effective way of improving the lighting for the next video.

    2. We are intending to do commentary for either this game or the next one. I might wait until i've sorted the lighting before doing the commentary games.

    Thanks to everyone who watches and for your feedback, i'm trying to increase the quality of the stream and the videos constantly so thanks again for watching.

    We have another game for you this week with Convergence playing against Wurmwood. The list options with Iron Mother/Lucant against Wurmwood/Baldur1 with the matchup being Lucant vs Wurmwood and you can watch that video here: https://youtu.be/Dtm50ppFb9Q

    Some things from my previous update:

    1) We tried to fix the lighting issue this week and i think its noticeably better. Let me know what you think to that.

    2) We also managed to record our thoughts after the game and made a commentated battle report of that game which you can watch here https://youtu.be/CdE_vQnOR9g

    As always, thanks for watching and if you have any feedback on the games then please let me know.

    Exams are over! As a result i will now be able to stream games each week as originally planned. We will also do commentary over those games where possible, depending on availability of players etc.

    This friday saw the High Reclaimer face off against Haley2 in Extraction. You can watch the video here: https://youtu.be/q2D10FJkl4E

    Thanks! Hopefully i can get more commentated reports up as well as just the streamed games but it all depends on mine and the players availability.

    I've uploaded another game, this time it's Father Lucant vs the Witch Coven and you can watch it here: https://youtu.be/XeDfvvTyo6c

    We have a tournament coming up on the 3rd of December and we will be streaming the games on our twitch channel and uploading the games afterwards as well to YouTube. Hopefully some of you are able to watch it live.

    Thanks

    I have uploaded the videos from our one day steamroller 'Headlock 2016' to youtube here:

    Butcher3 vs Witch Coven
    Rahn vs Tanith
    Rahn vs Thagrosh1

    Sadly (and much to my annoyance) the sound quality for these is not as good as it usually is and there are periods of silence during the videos. Rather than let this footage go to waste i have posted them to YouTube and put a little warning in the description.

    I'll be spending some time at our next club night trying to resolve this issue so it doesn't happen again. I'd have liked to avoid it for this but i was playing in the event and the sound drops out during the middle of the games.

    Apologies and i hope you find them worth watching anyway.

    Edit: I may take these off YouTube if the quality is such that they aren't worth watching. Let me know what you think.

    A Small Bump

    The stream should be back in the new year

    It certainly will be. I've just got to fix the audio issue and I think I'll be able to put the deathclock onto the stream as well.

    I've also taken the decision to take down the 3 videos with damaged audio. After thinking about it over the holidays I'm not happy with having something of poor quality on the channel so as much as it's annoying to have lost content, I'd rather have that than poor quality content.

    Also, I'm sure we can find a way to get you on the stream

    We are officially back!

    The Christmas break is over and i have managed to fix the audio issue which caused us to lose the games from our Winter steamroller. We will now be returning to our weekly schedule and will have regular games posted to YouTube and also to Twitch.

    Where possible i'd like to get commentated games done, but these are more difficult to organise and so until i can figure out a good way to do it easily they will not be as regular.

    For now though, we have another High Reclaimer video, this time we have Axis vs High Reclaimer. Enjoy!
