o7, captains!  I am excited to announce the launch of my new YouTube channel!  Check this thread often (you can choose to follow it if you like), as I'll continue to update it as I publish new content :).

 

 

For those who don't know me, I am a World of Warships player who has been playing since the Closed Beta Test.  I already serve the community as a Wiki Editor and a Supertester, but I feel like I need to do more.  Therefore, I have created Zath's Replay Theater.  The goal of this channel is to provide feedback for players who want to learn more about the game and improve.  I am not looking for "ZOMG TOP DAMAGE NA" kinds of replays.  Instead, I want to focus on the "average" player and their games.  While not the best player in the world, I can definitely help teach people by providing a second opinion or pointing out things that might not have been considered.  I will comment on:

- Use of flags/camo/commander skills/consumables

- Positioning

- Target priority

- Map awareness

- Ammunition selection

- Communication

Ultimately, the goal is to educate players and help everyone succeed in the game they enjoy playing.  

 

Want me to check out your [current WoWs version] replay?  Send the file (or replayswows.com link) to lordzathna@gmail.com and if it is chosen, I will upload it to the channel!  It can be any game mode, any class, any ship.  My goal is to post 2-3 replays per week, typically on the weekends.  There are no fancy edits, no memes, or background music - just straight replay commentary.

 

To enable replays, visit https://na.wargaming.net/support/kb/articles/517

 

I commented on several replays as a part of the recent STW 1 year anniversary tournament.  Feel free to visit Zath's Replay Theater and check them out!  Any and all feedback is always welcome as I continue to grow this channel.  Anything in particular you would like me to focus on?  Let me know!

 

I also have several goodies to hand out from the recent Let's Battle Tour.  Stay tuned for announcements and your chance to own something special!

It's also extremely exciting that Niko Power is collaborating with me, allowing me to highlight a video each week.  The player who sent in that replay gets a prize - 5x of each special economic flag...  check it out!  

Playlists:

Aircraft carriers:

Thanks!  With the game going live on Steam, I think it's a good time to help new players as well as seasoned players.  There's always more to learn in this game!

Suggestion, put your email address into the description box below the video. 

Other wise Woo a new WoWs channel is born. Maybe a sea of potatoes can be turned into a sea of 50% win rate potatoes.

Always nice to see a seasoned player reaching out to show newer players what to do as well as what doesn't work.

And as I do most of my viewing of videos while on my breaks during night shift, it gives me another channel to view...

It took me about 10 minutes to figure out who you were. Sneaky carrier. XD

 

You really threw me for a loop with the name change.

Wow I really appreciate all the positive responses!!!  And people have already told me they're sending replays....  AWESOME!

 

I want this channel to be YOUR channel.  Aside from my commentary, this is all about YOU!

Sams Club has (maybe had) Blue Snowball mics in chrome for something like $35... Normally $50 and up street.

Possibly something to look into. Source Forge hosts freeware called Audacity to edit your audio tracks. Feature rich and free. I personally use OBS for the video recording. Again, im a cheap bastard and its free.

Appreciate it!  I've just been recording straight tracks via OBS.  It's not the prettiest, but it works and it should *hopefully* enable me to put out content much faster than if I had to mix a whole bunch of stuff together.  That said, I have a feeling that it'll get there at some point :).  Good to know about the mic!

 

And here's the first replay!!!

Thanks :).  I kinda wish I could've asked you for the replay from our game before with you in Lexington.  Too bad it's from a couple patches ago!  That said, feel free to share at any time!

I haven't been keeping replays, I'll guess I'll have to go and activate the recording thingy!

Pretty awesome we already have a second replay up!

 

*** SPECIAL REQUEST *** if anyone has any Tier I, II, or III gameplay, please get that to me ASAP!  With WoWs coming out on Steam, I want to make sure new players can learn the game faster than we all did :).

I think if might be a good idea to invest in a decent mic since the one you are using right now picks up every little sound and the voice quality isn't that great.

It depends greatly on your environment and how the mic is to be mounted.  Unless the room is sound-treated (probably not something to consider) you want a cardioid (or possibly super-cardioid if you want to pic up sound directly behind the mic).

Body mics are possible too, but I'm not really up on them.

Thanks!  Right now I'm just laying the mic on my chest while reclined on my couch and viewing the replay.  So it's definitely not the most conducive to audio :).

After doing a bunch of replays, I found that replays with user thought process and visable steering, wasd and ctrl+click inputs were the most useful to the audience.

Or, basically, live recordings or streams were most liked.

And for the final upload of the day (I think), I bring you @LittleWhiteMouse's creation....  The V-25 Death Race!

Yah, you gotta do something about the sound.  The level on the 2nd vid was so low I found it hard to make out.  Maybe try a headphone mic?

Interesting replay, though.
