Streams: A couple of recorded games with many audio comments
« on: December 21, 2013, 05:39:50 AM »
Hi everyone, I started live streaming/recording games again. Here you will find the links to the recent games and a brief summary of the game and what I learned from it.

New: Started uploading videos on youtube so you have the choice between different resolutions. Additionally it makes it easier to post comments to a specific video. I wouldnt mind some likes as well :P. If there is a youtube video available I will post it below the twitch link.

The order of these videos is not necessarily chronological. One reason is that in some videos I explain the idea of a new build at the beginning and I guess its better to start with those videos. If you want to see the most recently added videos pls go to the highlight section of my twitch side (some videos only have youtube links though):

The Blasting Banker vs Neotoni(Warlock)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pCUnlbb0bG0&feature=youtu.be

Very quick game and all audio comments seem to be well understandable from what I tested (in some videos a part of some comments is missing). You also hear a brief explanation of the build at the beginning.
Neotoni increased his channeling to 11 with a Crystal + Moonglow Amulet and relied on curses+Explodes
to damage my mage. He used an Idol of Pestilance+Deathlock as well but in the end my higher channeling and the action advantage from the Forge got him I think.

The Blasting Banker vs Dinotim (Necro)
http://www.twitch.tv/charmyna/c/3768200

He used four Zombie Brutes for which he had to pay alot of upkeep thanks to my Obelisk. In the end the bloodthirsty on the Brutes backfired at him since he could not dissolve the Suppression Cloak quickly (partly because of Enchantment Transfusion+Nullify trick) and his zombies had to attack me (and couldnt destroy Enchanters Wardstone) even though they did only very few damage and he had to pay 2 mana for each attack.

Here you see some more action of the Blasting Banker! Its a new build that relies on banked actions (many enchants on his/my mage before the real fight start) and on firespells for damage. Plattenspieler used Vine Tree, followed by Cervere, Raptor Vine and Oscuda. During the first round I banked hidden enchants on him, used Forge to lower the damage from his creatures and saved like 30 mana. After that I kept attacking him with firespells/zap, revealed ghoul rot and kept him from healing with poisoned blood+some nullifies. In the end that worked quite well even though I left his tree alive!!!
Take home message: It might not always be necessary to destroy the druids tree before attacking him. Btw banking actions+mana is just awesome :).

Blasting Banker vs Neotoni (Warlord)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xlMBlEfKjb0

He tried to kill my Battle Forge with Akiros Hammer quickly but needed two attacks. So I got some actions out of the Forge fortunately. Later he casted a Forge himself which I quickly destroyed with a lucky roll on geyser (Forge has Water+3!). At some point I casted a Darkfenne Bat to get a rot token on his Mage while he casted a sniper and Sir corazin. I managed to kill the sniper and get a Rot token on his mage after the third attack from the Bat. Unfortunately he had to go at that point.
I learned that the Bat is a nice as annoying for the opponent as i thought it would be and that I need a 2nd Forge, its too important for this build.

The Blasting Banker vs Oneirophage (Druid)
http://www.twitch.tv/charmyna/c/3709460
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1N2hURqvz1I

Tested a new build: It starts with a Forge and relies on banked actions (many enchants on his/my mage before the real fight start) and on firespells for damage. Since he casted a tree bonded vine tree I had to focus that down first. After that I needed to flee from his creatures (2 Grizzlies, Raptor vine+Thornlasher) while banking actions. That worked quite well since he didnt care enough for me banking.
_____________________________________________________________________________________

The Pterosaur vs fiery Warlock (Neotoni)
http://www.twitch.tv/charmyna/c/3715935

New build: The basic Idea is to have some flyers to deal constant damage to the opponent, in this case flying Dinosaurs (= Pterosaurs). Since they have a ranged attack guards wont stop them. Another way would be to have flyers with mongoose agility (tried that in a later game but we could not finish it). Part of the idea is that since the creatures are flyers most of the opponents creatures cant attack them and since the druid is no easy target, thats in my favor. Problem with this build is: Its damage is slow and I dont have much to protect my Tree. In addition I cant afford to have many Teleports, so if I get tanglevined its difficult to get out of that (happened during the unfinished game). I think the main route for this build is to survive long enough to get rid of the opponents protections and then push him through a wall of thorns. Still thats a difficult task and I think the Blasting Banker is much more effective for this purpose.

In the match linked above, the build worked well because the Warlock tried to focus me down by banking mana and then using Fireballs. I cared about his high mana pool though and prepared accordingly. Therefore he could barely damage me over the curse of the game and at the end I had quite some banked actions (enchantments) on him and did not fear his damage at all so he conceded. I think this game shows that if you want to focus down the druid its not enough to bank mana. You need to get rid of his protections first and bank actions.

The Blasting Banker vs Murphy (warlock)
http://www.twitch.tv/charmyna/c/3733245

If you never saw the Blasting Banker before (IMO one of my strongest builds), you might want to start with this video since at the beginning I give a brief Introduction into the build. Later some of the audio comments arent easy to understand unfortunately. Still the beginning is.
Murphys build could be named the canine feast fest. He summoned three kinds of canines (and later he told me he had all canines in his book - quite cool ;)). His Dogs went after my conjurations and my Wizard while I used the battle forge to gain action advantage. Near the end his canines had a tough time barely scratching my pants eh armor and finally my Blasting Banker burned him into GG.

Druid vs Ranger (Priestess)
http://www.twitch.tv/charmyna/c/3717525
http://www.twitch.tv/charmyna/c/3717544

This time I tried to use cervere, a raptor vine and much later a grizzly. Unfortunately his Knight used his 7 dice attack to roll 10 crit damage against my cervere which had only a few damage before. After that it was a pain. For over an hour my only hope was that he does not protect himself well against force push+wall of thorns. Guess what? He didnt :).
What Ive learned: I should not use meditation amulet with this build and not attack that early if I dont have enough vine creatures to support the attack.


_____________________________________________________________________________________


The Pterosaur vs Neotoni (Attrition Wizard)
http://www.twitch.tv/charmyna/c/3715268
http://www.twitch.tv/charmyna/c/3715276

He tried to get me with a couple Mana Drain Mage Wands. Because of the lost mana I had quite a few misplanned round. Still, after a while I dissolved the wands while protecting myself with the help of the Forge. So he could not do alot of damage. At the end I had a Raptor+Cervere and he conceded.

_____________________________________________________________________________________


The Thorny Magician vs Gizzu (Watergate Wizard)
http://www.twitch.tv/charmyna/c/3695309
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_3Ki_WRjmzE

During the first few rounds he summoned Gate, Gremlin and Wizards Tower. I managed to push him through a Wall of Thorns twice in a round early on which resulted in 24 damage. In just the same round his tower attacked huginn with geyser and rolled 5 damage! Since I spend all my mana on wall/push/jet stream I had no mana left to reveal bull endurance on huginn and lost alot of mana and actions! Still, the damage on his mage was high enough to finish him off a few rounds later with surging wave and a boulder.
What to learn: Im not too sure :P. On the one hand, it might have been smarter to delay the push till I have enough mana to push twice AND reveal enchants on Huginn. Especially if huginn is in range of the Towers Geyser/Flame Blast. On the other hand, it`s really tempting to push twice if your opponent has no armor/enchants at all. Tough call ...

_____________________________________________________________________________________

The even thornier Sporemaster vs Thelas (Air Wizard)
http://www.twitch.tv/charmyna/c/3698083
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dyk3r9hQ9hc

Long but very interesting game against a mana drain deck! Due to my former lack of experience against such builds I was quite surprised how much trouble it caused me (I should have known better still!). He used obelisk, essence and mana drain, as well as mana siphon to lower my channeling while I used two spores and the Forge to get an action advantage. Turns out I couldnt make use of that since I had no mana :P. Took me a while to recover from his mana drain and my very low mana pool for subsequent rounds.
Near the end I finally had enough mana and actions to (theoretically) push him through the wall of thorns twice per round and I really looked forward to doing so! I even had a stumble prepared to prevent his movement away from the wall after the first push. Great planning you think? Well, his Wizards Tower said "Nonono little thorny wall, this is no good place to idle around" and oneshotted my innocent wall with a lightning bolt. So, in theory stumble works pefectly fine. In practice, even though the opponent cant move, he might kill the wall easily ;) (I still think stumble can be great in some situations, dont get me wrong).
Well, in the end he conceded because he did not have enough dissolves to handle my regrowth belt + two mage wands. Still, it was an awesome, challenging game and I think with better rolls on his side it could have gone in a totally different direction!
I learned to be afraid of mana drain decks and next time I think I will put a dissolve and  force push on the spores instead of acid ball and push (or maybe not since I dont want to be too predictable ;)).

The Thorny Magician vs Jacksmack (Fire Wizard)
Due to problems with the connection the video was split in three parts - uploaded them on both youtube and twitch:
http://www.twitch.tv/charmyna/c/3693469
http://www.twitch.tv/charmyna/c/3693504

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t__oRKCrmB8
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kMcvNEV-bO8

VERY close mirrormatch! He relied on Battle Forge, Wizard Tower and fire attacks while I summoned Huginn and Wizard Tower for some Force Push aktion. Important mistake on my side: I didnt care enough for his high mana pool which is always dangerous because it allows the opponent to deliver high burst damage for subsequent rounds. At that time I should have put some armor on my mage but did cast rhino hide on Huginn. Blame me! The game was open till the end, very exciting IMO!
_____________________________________________________________________________________

Aggro Druid vs Jacksmack (Necro)
Due to problems with the connection the video was split in two parts:
http://www.twitch.tv/charmyna/c/3693658
http://www.twitch.tv/charmyna/c/3693669

Long game but IMO quite interesting to learn from my mistakes: Think I lost because first I moved two zones per round too often at the beginning. In round one I moved twice to south to reach his battle forge quickly. I decided to move to south corner instead of middle because I thought that way my Vine Tree is far away from his zombie spawning Mage and my druid can run back to the tree quickly if needed. In the second round I moved twice again to reach his newly summoned Graveyard quickly, but since I moved twice to south before, my druid still wasnt adjacent to the graveyard. Next time I should move the druid to the middle if moving twice (that way the druid could be adjacent to every zone at the end of round 2 and with the help of vine markers cast a vine snapper into the opponents spawnpoints zone and a raptor vine into the adjacent zone in round 3). Actually it might often be better to move only once in round 1 to not loose an aktion and cast tataree or harmonize (I still think its good to move twice if the opponent already casted his spawnpoint early on so you know where to move).
2nd mistake: I had no high damage attack spells in my book to get around his guarding zombies. I might consider putting one or two hurl boulders into the deck.
He relied on many spawnpoints + meditation amulet (Battle Forge, Tome, Graveyard). Interestingly I think he had no sources of healing besides regrowth belt and I think after this game (even though he won it) he considered putting heal spell(s) in his book. IMO at least one heal spell should be included in most spellbooks, especially if they include a mage wand as well.

The Thorny Magician vs Fapostol (Forcemaster)
http://www.twitch.tv/charmyna/c/3687284
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2kpqj_qNCtI

The audio comments dont have loops now (actually there is a very short loop for a few seconds at the beginning).

Tried a "new old" build focused on the idea to push through Wall of Thorns. Huginn and Wizard Tower are the key. In this game the tower wasnt that helpful though because of the opponents deflect (bad for jet stream). Huginn was very helpful btw! Not a great surprise I guess ;).


_____________________________________________________________________________________

The Thorny Magician vs Fapostol (Warlock)
http://www.twitch.tv/charmyna/c/3688069

We both summoned two mana crystals in Round 1+2 (the game before I realized im too short on mana too often). Besides that he used a battle forge and a deathpact slayer while I summoned Huginn and a wizard tower. In the end the action advantage due to those two cards together with the wall of thorns+force push combo worked very well.

_____________________________________________________________________________________

Aggro Dudu vs Sike (Necro). 2nd game.
http://www.twitch.tv/charmyna/c/3682859

Sorry for the double audio comments - still figuring out best settings.

He summoned a ghoul and protective stuff early on (no spawnpoint!) while i casted vine tree followed by raptor vine and timber wolf. Later the vine tree casted a thornlasher for me which together with the damage potential from my creatures and a teleport wand gave me the ability to play around with his ghoul/mage and outdamage him.
_____________________________________________________________________________________

Aggro Dudu vs Sike (Necro)
http://www.twitch.tv/charmyna/c/3682881

He started with a death ring and a plague zombie. Later he casted defensive stuff (dragonscale hauberk and cloak of shadows) together with Idol of Pestilence . I think the reason I won this game was that his zombie/idol and equipment did not help him that much against my setup (vine tree, raptor vine, vine snapper).

_____________________________________________________________________________________



Aggro dudu vs Facebreaker (necro)
http://www.twitch.tv/charmyna/c/3682152

Sorry for the repititions in voice chat.
In the first, round he moved one zone and casted a graveyard into his middle zone. That made it easy for me to rush forward and cast a couple vine snappers (with rouse the beast) and a raptor vine right into his face :).
After my snappers destroyed his Graveyard early on, he attacked my vine tree. To protect the tree I teleported his zombie brute into my snappers zone and killed him just in the same round. A round later it was GG.

Mirrormatch VS Padawanofthegames:
http://www.twitch.tv/charmyna/c/3425476

Padawan started with the same opening as I do: Gate+harmonize. Then he focused on attacking with gremlins+gargoyle+two gorgon archers. The winning point was that he attacked and therefore needed time to close the gap. Thus, I had enough time to summon more creatures than his could handle. At the end (around 1h 36mins) you see some nice teleport action with extra sound (WUUUSCH). Have fun!

Here is a more detailed report and some screenies of the game (they are taken from the vid so quality could be better, will try to take them directly from the game next time):

Round 2: He Summones Gremlin and Battleforge. I cast Gargoyle, Meditation Amulet and meditate.
Round 3: He summons Gargoyle+Enchanters Ring. I cast Devouring Jelly+Arcane Crystal+medidate.
Round 4: He summones Gremlin(Gate)+Meditation Amulet(Forge)+Arcane Crystal+meditates and attacks my Wizzie with the Gremlin. I summon Hydra + hidden regrowth on my Mage + meditate.
Round 5: He summons another Gremlin, meditates and casts a hidden enchant on his mage. I reveal regrowth, summon Gremlin, cast Leather Boots, meditate and find out that I removed all rhino hides from my build by accident and therefore started with 118 Spellpoints ;).
At around Min 49 (still round 5) the Hydra kills his Gremlin:


Round 6 (around 60mins): He summons Gorgon Archer(Gate), Leather boots (Forge), casts Hawkeye on his mage and meditates. I Summon Jelly(Gate), cast a Mage Want with Teleport and meditate.
At around 1h 8mins my Gremlin kills his Gremlin:


Round 7 (Around 1h 18mins): He summons a 2nd Gorgon Archer(Gate), Arcane Ring(Forge), casts a 2nd hidden enchant on his mage and meditates. I summon a 2nd Gremlin(Gate), move one zone with my mage to be able to teleport the Gorgon Archer with the Mage Wand in case the Gorgon moves. Since my Wizard moved I could not meditate (its a full action). Therefore I casted Nullify on my Wiz to protect the Mage Wand or to prevent being teleported at a later point.
In the same round he moves his Gorgon one zone and into the range of my Wizzie since i guess he plans to attack next round. Unfortunately for him my Wiz got the Teleport Wand which kills the Gorgon just in the same Round. I think this was the MOST CRUCIAL POINT: He moved Gorgon before my Jelly, the Hydra and the Gremlin used their Marker. Therefore all three could still attack after the teleport and the Gorgon had a see again with the two Gremlins:


WHAT TO LEARN: Be very careful if your opponent has 2 high hitting creatures in the same zone and might be able to teleport! You might want to wait till he has only one or better no creature left to activate before you move into his teleport range ...

After this imo the game was over. He lost too many Mana, Actions, Spellpoints and damage potential to be able to keep up. My wizzie had Regrowth+Nullify+Leather Boots+Teleport Wand+Gargoyle to protect against attack spells. It was very unlikely that his Mage would have put my Wiz under enough pressure to keep up with the pressure that would come from Teleport Wand+Hugginn (casted in next Round by Gate)+Hydra+2 Jellies+2 Gremlins+Gargoyle ;).

________________________________________________________________________________________


Game against Gizzu (Beastmaster).
http://www.twitch.tv/charmyna/c/3424644

This game shows how nasty Zap+Wiz Tower+Jet Stream is against small creatures, especially small flying creatures. Its the reason im not afraid of swarms of flyers even though my build only has one flying creature (Gargoyle) and no creature with reach.
Additionally it shows that even if the Wizzie starts with a slow Opening (Gate+Harmonize), you should not underestamite his damage potential even early on! Zap+Mages Attack+Wizard Tower+Gremlins or whatever comes out of the Gate (Garg/Jelly), can dish out scary damage.

Since he attacked early on and I already had much higher channeling, I did not use Meditation Amulet.
Creature wise he summoned two pet Falcons, Galador and a mana flower. I summoned two Gremlins, Gargoyle and two Wizard Towers.
He killed my Wiz Tower, whereas I killed his two Falcons and Galador. Taken together with his much lower channeling that was it.

Here you can see Galador facing the inevitable:

Game VS Somaddict (Forcemaster):
http://www.twitch.tv/charmyna/c/3428557

Sorry, music was again too loud, guess i have to quit playing music in background.
He summoned Grizzly+Galador early on but the grizzlies died quickly after a lucky roll of the Jelly and hurl boulder.

________________________________________________________________________________________


Some older vids (think they have been deleted by the system):
_____________________________________________________________________________________

Game against Facebreaker (Druid):
http://www.twitch.tv/charmyna/c/3423666

First, sorry for the bad audio Quality, especially in the beginning. I used push to talk which I later avoided (in the videos linked above).

He used both Spawnpoints (Samara Tree and Vine Tree) and summoned plenty of plants (two Thornlashers, two Raptor Vines, Nightshade Lotus and Kralathor).

Here (around 59mins) you can see how Kralathor dies after an attack of the Jelly followed by an attack of the newly casted Wiz Tower (my Wiz just had enough mana to cast the Tower+cast Jet Stream with Tower):


The crucial point here was that Kralathor died before he used his action marker (I guess facebreaker attacked with the two Thornlashers first to let Kralathor get the kill for a growth marker).
What to learn? Be careful to not loose damage output by letting your creatures die before they activate!

Btw in that Round I think he attacked the damaged Jelly with the Lotus. We both missed that since the Lotus attack is classified as poisonous, the jelly as a nonliving creature is immune to it.

In the end imo I won the game because a couple of Jellies+Hydra are really devastating against plants. Most of them got no or just one armor, which allows the Hydra to deliver its full damage potential. Even without a Hydra, the jellies dish out some impressing damage as well and they survive alot! Btw you need to be aware of all the immunities the Jelly got! Immunity to poison, psychich immunity, acid immunity and since hes nonliving the raptor vines vampiric trait wont help! Additionally, Jelly is uncontainable which makes him immune against the thornlashers snatch! Oh and the best thing: He is resilient (only damaged by crits) and can "heal" himself from two damage each round if he damages a corporeal crature (like plants). The only major DOWNSIDE of the Jelly is his attack being a full attack! Therefore if he guards he CANT COUNTERSTRIKE. Be aware of that!

Take home message of this game: Jelly+Hydra is an awesome combo, especially against Plants. If you play a Jelly or play against one, be sure to keep in mind his Immunities and his inability to counterstrike while guarding!


_____________________________________________________________________________________



Me playing Druid vs Somaddict (Forcemaster):
http://www.twitch.tv/charmyna/b/489637389

He summoned two Thoughtspores early on (with Sleep and Flameblast), while I summoned the Vine Tree and Tataree. Later I summoned three Thornlashers, a Raptor Vine and a Lotus, Meditation Amulet, Hand of Bimshalla and some protective stuff on my Druid (Leather Boots+Gloves, Veterans Belt and Nullify). His Sleep Spore was quite annoying until I put it asleep with the Lotus :). Thereafter, he had too few actions/options to choose from and conceded.

Here you can see how the board looked at the end:

The hidden enchants on my Druid were: Barkskin and Nullify (to protect Veterans Belt).


________________________________________________________________________________________


Game vs Somaddict (Necromancer):
http://www.twitch.tv/charmyna/b/489174318
The music might be a bit too loud for some time.

He used death ring and  two spawnpoints to quickly summon six zombie crawlers (lvl 1 creature) and 4 skeleton archers.
First, he attacked the Hydra with an archer. Later he gave all zombies fast. Since the hydra was damaged the zombies had to attack her and get many counterstrikes. I tried hard to save the hydra but he managed to kill and reanimate her as a zombie! During that time I killed six zombie crawlers and four archers though. At endgame I managed to keep him trapped in the two jellies + hydra zone by using force hold+nullify+two jinx.
The killing blow was a hurl boulder in a round he had initiative (jinxed his teleport ;) ):

I was just thinking the other day, "I wonder what happened to Charmyna?" Welcome back to the forums!
I can take the fun out of anything. It's true; here, look at this spreadsheet.

That would be great! Cant wait for that :).

Nice to hear that! During my streams only a few viewers use the chat, so I dont get much feedback. If you have any suggestions, pls let me know :).

Just finished watching your last stream.

Again, thank you for taking the time to record your games and making them open to the public. I really enjoy watching your streams: I have a great time while viewing (can't play as often as I'd like), I learn some things from a great player like you and I get some ideas for my own spellbooks. So, please, continue with that work, you have a Spanish fan :D

As far as the videos are concerned:

-I've been toying around with jellies by myself and found how awesome they are. I started by playing two of them in my Gate to Voltari Wizard (I've been a fan of this card since I started playing the game and it even gives its name to my blog) just to test them and a couple of days ago I finally went up to four. They are plainly awesome, but you have to keep a Teleport wand always at hand, something you would be willing to do anyways. And Meditation amulet is great in these spawnpoint-based spellbooks. Actually, your build seems very similar to mine, and that made me very proud :D

-I'm intrigued with your druid. I'm trying to make her work as I like her mechanics but I'm finding trouble to make a competitive build out of her despite trying different approaches (Samara, Vine tree, Vine tree + Forge). I've seen your opening is Vine tree and Taratee, which I guess is to fulfill the have-more-action-markers-than-opponent thing, but is less mana efficient than Harmonize, for example. Is it really worth the extra two mana? What are your thoughts on her from a competitive point of view? Without having played the actual game, I guess any Wizard running jellies would give her trouble because of Corrode and Tower + Fire spell. Adramelech is also a pain because of his flying. I'd really like to hear your opinion on this issue.

Merry Christmas!

Just finished watching your last stream.

Again, thank you for taking the time to record your games and making them open to the public. I really enjoy watching your streams: I have a great time while viewing (can't play as often as I'd like), I learn some things from a great player like you and I get some ideas for my own spellbooks. So, please, continue with that work, you have a Spanish fan :D

As far as the videos are concerned:

-I've been toying around with jellies by myself and found how awesome they are. I started by playing two of them in my Gate to Voltari Wizard (I've been a fan of this card since I started playing the game and it even gives its name to my blog) just to test them and a couple of days ago I finally went up to four. They are plainly awesome, but you have to keep a Teleport wand always at hand, something you would be willing to do anyways. And Meditation amulet is great in these spawnpoint-based spellbooks. Actually, your build seems very similar to mine, and that made me very proud :D

-I'm intrigued with your druid. I'm trying to make her work as I like her mechanics but I'm finding trouble to make a competitive build out of her despite trying different approaches (Samara, Vine tree, Vine tree + Forge). I've seen your opening is Vine tree and Taratee, which I guess is to fulfill the have-more-action-markers-than-opponent thing, but is less mana efficient than Harmonize, for example. Is it really worth the extra two mana? What are your thoughts on her from a competitive point of view? Without having played the actual game, I guess any Wizard running jellies would give her trouble because of Corrode and Tower + Fire spell. Adramelech is also a pain because of his flying. I'd really like to hear your opinion on this issue.

Merry Christmas!

Happy to hear that :). About Adramelech: Never played against him as a druid. What I would try is to cast a couple of the cheap plants with 5 attack dices in the zone adramelech will run into. Then force hold/knockdown him and try to kill him in 1-2 rounds.


Streamed a few games with the Priestess of the Forge now. Its a very solid build which makes use of Battle Forge+Temple of Asyra to get ahead of the opponent action wise while using Meditation Amulet for high channeling.

BTW Happy New Year!

I really like the commented matches. In fact, I'd like to see more of them. Maybe something like some people do on youtube - commenting a replay of a match played by different people.

Hey guys!

Here is another one who really enjoys those videos. They really helped me to understand what all this "online meta" is all about - plus, they are entertaining.

However, I have problems watching some of the most recent videos charmyna linked here. When I click on the link to "Priestess of the Forge vs Jacksmack (fire wizard)", I only get this error message in my browser window: {:error=>nil, :url=>"/charmyna/b/492117421"}. Any ideas what's going wrong there?

My first post on this board and I'm complaining already. ;)

Yes, warlord! No other victory feels more rewarding. =)

No problem. Im happy you like them :).

I just checked the list of recorded videos and the most recent videos are gone. Guess they are deleted automatically. I just dont understand why the older videos are still there.
Next time I have to move them to "Highlights".
