This is what I am looking for-
I love watching good battle reports but I have a few criteria -
1- the people playing should be at least as good as me. Nothing kills me more than watching people play and the players obviously don't know the rules or do stupid things like forget how focus works. I wouldn't call myself a great player, but I do know how to play, how the rules work and what the FAQs say.
2- I need to be able to see what is going on. What is the point of watching a video of cool figures if the quality is poor.
3- This is the least important, but I would prefer if their was some good editing, fast forwarding. Not too much. I don't really care for the battle reports where you just get a recap after each turn. I want to see the dice rolls and all, I would prefer if the movement phase went buy a little faster.

The best videos I have seen are the Team Covenant. Miniature Wargaming has a few good ones too. I kind of wish there were some Team Covenant torment coverage with Miniature Wargaming style editing.

I agree, their commentary is great. Fire up the Chromecast with snacks :)

Watch me lose to Paul Heaver in the Vassal final. He won 2 major tournaments in one day.

I've been working to improve my Battle Reports.   The first few I did were all just summaries of each turn.  I'm now doing more of the actual game, (Movement, Actions, etc) and skipping past the time where we lolleygag and do our maneuver dials.  

 

  My biggest problem now is finding a place at the store I play at, to place my camera.  I end up having to hold it and it's a pain.  

 

Thanks for this thread, it's good for people like me to know exactly what viewers want to see.

I know it's prohibitively expensive to consider, but I can't help but wonder how well it would work shooting using Google Glass?   Maybe I could test by gaffe taping a GoPro to my forehead.  I'm also one of your subscribers.  Loved your vids so far.  You, and a couple of others have made me seriously think about shooting X-Wing and Dreadball batreps for a channel of my own.

I got it close. I almost pulled it off but the dice did not favor my last gambit.

Google Glass would free up your hands, but still wouldn't be steady - and likely wouldn't capture the entire field of view like the best Batreps often do.  

 

  My setup in my garage is perfect - I have a high mounted shelf that works well for the camera, but I have nobody to play at home - so unless any of you feel like driving to Orlando for a game of X-Wing then I'm out of luck.  

  I'm thinking of trying a batrep vs the AI - see how that pans out.

Started to rewatch it, and realized I have actually seen this one.  Either way, you did play one hell of a game.

Infocomm next year is in Orlando.  I'll probably be there.  If I skip the Crestron party (last year I couldn't, Penn and Teller were the main act)  I'd be up for a game or 2.  I'm lucky, my wife plays too, so I always have someone to play.

MNX is great...."do a barrel roll" comes up alot in the commentary.

 

Crabbok does very good reviews and tactical tips as well.

Here is an example of my new format - which I can only do with the right setup.  This is vs the AI - since I have nobody else to play in my garage at the moment.

Ummm? Do them yourself?
I have NOTHING clever to say.

NO ONE cares if I win or loose.
