Priestess vs Adramelech Warlock Gameplay Video
« on: July 15, 2014, 10:58:11 PM »
So I recorded a match between the new Warlock and the Priestess the other day. The first part can be seen -->HERE<--. Let me know what you think! This is my 2nd time using her. I lost the first time against this very same Priestess. Hopefully I can get my vengeance!

Audio has some issues until about 5:00 in, sorry about that! Video and audio quality is something I'm always trying to improve and is a work in progress. I've never done any videos before so I'm kinda learning as I go along.

I'm trying to upload videos as frequently as I can. The reason I'm doing this is because there aren't nearly enough gameplay videos out there and nobody else was doing it so I figured I would. Please hit the subscribe button to know when I post more videos! Comments/feedback are always appreciated!

I actually enjoyed it and left some feedback on your video on YouTube (same handle FYI) and gave you props for fixing some of the issues before. I think the best way would be to get a camera from top view and having the game play to do that. Maybe using a FlipHD camera to do that and finding some way to make it work. I know I have one and have a tripod for my video projects here and there.

I think that it truly is something that can make this fan base increase with videos and such. It teaches the mechanics through live play, come up with strategies/techniques and just create an all around buzz. When my bud comes back, I may take a dabble at it too.

Thanks for all of your support! I'll always be trying to make it better. A top down view would be nice. I'll try to figure out a way to do it, but it might be tough. Also want to add in small strategy talks after each round explaining what we did and our thought process as we did it. Hopefully that won't make the videos run too long.

ANYWAYS the conclusion to this battle has been uploaded to Youtube. I spent all day today editing it and uploading it. Had some troubles along the way but it turned out pretty well imo.

It can be viewed -->HERE<--

Thanks for continuing these LoW.  Like others have said, I love having game play videos available, so I appreciate you going through the effort of making/posting these. 

When all else fails, throw fire at their face!   ;D

I don't know which player you are but I was rooting for the Priestess to pull off the comeback so I was disappointed when he gave it away, but it was a good game none the less.  Did raise a couple of questions to me about the game in general, though, namely about aggression vs. the long game and playing to win as opposed to playing to not lose. 

Good stuff, gents!

Thank you sir!

I probably should have mentioned which Mage I was :P I was trying out the Adramelech Warlock.

& I was obviously trying to swarm, which didn't work so well. At least against the Priestess. I'll have to try it again vs another Mage, but probably won't record that match. Both my matches so far have featured the Adramelech Warlock so I'll probably use something else next time.

You definitely fixed many of the concerns people had so props to you. I loved what you did in the second one with showing the cards just in case people didn't catch it or whatnot but the next step would be HQ vids and so forth. If poker can figure out a way to televise their stuff and increase their popularity, I'm sure MW community can (potentially an intern or someone who's in charge of social media marketing). I think my friend and I may try to do something like this too and experiment since we got some down time.

As for the gameplay, mid-late game Warlock is rather tough due to mana constraints. I'm wondering how Sesiryx would have done if he got out. I like that he curses and can cast which saves actions. I'm also wondering if LoF can come out any time except the beginning? I wonder if a LoF turn 2 and then Pentagram+Harmonize turn 4 would work.

Keep up the vids and you got my sub on YouTube! :)

Hmm, thats a very deep idea. Right now, game play videos are just for actual players. Make it a watchible for ppl from "outside" that could be a challange.

First, you would probably need some gifted comentator. I had a chance to stumble over some guys who could be pros, when i was playing Company of Heroes (pc game). Even my friends, which didnt even play the game once could watch it and have a fun despite they didnt fully know the game.

Second, you will need more camera angels. Sometimes, you need to check some details, sometimes, all action is happening in a distant corner and would be also nice to had a chance to look at each players spellbook and "drawn" cards.

But thats just me mumbling for my self :) You are doing a great job and i cant wait for another episode :)

Yeah, it's a pretty lofty dream. The only way poker could have done it was because they had the players and base to be able to try something huge like they did in 2003 when they first televised the WSOP. It was a smart way of being able to show their product. I think for MW at it's infancy/early childhood that we need to first create enough buzz through the players we have (Ambassador program, YouTube, etc.) to be able to grow. This is why this gameplay video is so important because it gives a tangiblity (is that even a word?!) to the game and you can see it in action.

It's not ready for the commentators and multiple angles just yet because the base doesn't exist yet. Once we can though, then we should explore that option. It technically can be done now with the right budget (in a way, they will need a mini-studio similar to the make up of YouTube celebs) but whether or not it's worth the invest at this point is really what holds it back.

Sorry for this long winded conversation about a video instead of the game. I'm not criticizing it but just mentioning it's growth potential which I'm sure AW knows. Keep cranking videos because this will inspire people (like me) to perhaps dabble in it to grow the fan base. :)

It is my mental defect, that i was thinking about commented MW match for a whole day :)

I hope, that future it has it somewhere prepared for us, but right now, i am fully satisfied and hold a great respect for Lord of Winter and a great ammount of work and time he must invest in this "episode" of his show. I hope that my writing didnt look like a criticism or unsatisfaction ;)

My only remark would be a lightly dressed elf girls holding a cards with a number, which round it actually is, like it is in boxing :)
