SQUAD: ALONE ON THIS BATTLEFIELD, YOU WILL NOT SURVIVE.

Squad is an online, team-based military experience where high levels of teamwork and communication are crucial to success.

Built from the ground up in Unreal Engine 4, Squad pits teams of up to 50 people against each other in intense modern day combined-arms combat scenarios. In this realistic environment, the flow of the game is dictated by the players, with organic and emergent gameplay reigning supreme.

Today I have something special for you guys. Last week I got the opportunity to play Squad with the developers and other YouTubers and streamers during their Kickstarter roudup event. During the event I got the chance to sit down with Litoralias, community manager for Squad, to discuss the game and answer viewer questions.

Here is our 40 minute interview. Check out Squads website for details surrounding the games release and features of the title.

1-90 Monk Guide!

So you want to start a Monk in World of Warcraft, you’ve come to the right place. Below will be a link to a playlist that will go over everything you need to know on the monk class and leveling efficiency 1-90.

The video below is episode one of the series. If you’d like to watch more make sure to subscribe and check out the playlist. Each video is titled by level so if you’re already started to level you can jump ahead. The best strategy would be to listen while you play and check out each video as you go along. It will give you a few tips on each level gap (five levels). Although this isn’t a step-by-step you can grab one here. It’s the addon I use during the guide.

YouTube ONE Layout. The Good, Bad and The Ugly.

Hello YouTubers! Today I am going to rant/type about the new YouTube one layout.  First off, I’ve taken a significant amount of time this morning designing my layout. Take a look.

As you can see, this is a little bit different from what you probably see, but the layout itself looks well..but what the hell is with the logo? I’ll explain…

If you look in the lower left corner I’ve set up the In-video programming. The transparent background actually shows up as white on the channel background but in the actual video it works beautifully.

I do like a few things about this design. The fact that it literally throws content at the viewers is really great. The mobile and tablet integration *soon* will hopefully bolster views.

The things I don’t like? Much less design options and it’s too WHITE. It feels like a website from 1995. I think giving the channel design back to the Youtubers is what needs to happen moving forward and also bringing back content incentives like daily view rewards..what the hell happened to those?

Short story short, it’s not a terrible design after all and it is growing on me.

The #1 Rule to YouTube Success: Consistency.

Today I wanted to share some of my knowledge in building a great YouTube channel. Consistency is the most important factor in building an audience that follows your content no matter what you create, shorts, films, commentaries you name it. Creating strong content 3-7 times a week should be your goal as a new YouTuber. As you can tell, I struggle with consistency because of my day job running TGN’s partnership department but that doesn’t make me less knowledgeable about the topic. Look at UberHaxorNova for example. He has created high quality hilarious let’s plays and gets millions of views every single day. You’re probably wondering what he did to get so many views? Maintained a high video count over a very long period of time.

Notice the chart above. Those are my statistics. Starting in June I started to pump out 3 videos a week and notice how my views sky rocket. I also gained 2,500 new subscribers from my increase of content. Now notice the decline. I can only make one video a week now and look at how that is effecting my views and subscriber rates. Obviously, my channel is a hobby but YouTube is my career. If TGN Recruitment was to ever fail for me (which it won’t at this rate) but lets say that it does – I’d resort back to my channel and use the skills I acquired to become a self made entrepreneur. Some times I’d actually prefer it but it doesn’t pay the bills which is what counts.

Long story short; Try to make as many high quality videos as you can and maintain that over a long period of time.

I plan on sharing more of my acquired knowledge over time. Stay tuned 😉
