Video/tactic sharing

Since information is power (and I am bored while studying for some exams) I decided to start making some videos of how I do certain levels. The videos will probably not showcase the exact strategies that are used for higher scores, partly because I have a somewhat bad memory, and partly because people should consider changing small elements in the strats to score higher, and not just get everything served on a silver platter.

If you are having problems with a certain level and it is one I enjoy playing, feel free to request a video here and I will try to make one that at the very least will score you a gold medal.

My videos:
Anyway I started out with Tony's Training since it is one of the newest and it is a fun map. The tactic used here is not my normal one so I basically just experimented: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AfLUrNzwyN4

Well, now I'm fiddling with hard drive settings, and probably going to force Steam to open games on my smaller monitor to get better results, but at least I remember how to do it now. heheh Starting back from (near) the beginning with my strat for Ancient Research - Poison Core. Hopefully I can force the frame rate to come out to my satisfaction.

Okay, first one in the books from me. This is an Ancient Research Poison Core run. It's certainly not 100% on my part, but it's worth a gold all the same. I do want to experiment some more with the positioning of the inferno tower, or adding a second one to help with the late waves.

I made a vid for fire control just now, simple setup which will give a decent score. I left something for people to figure out if they want to score 59000+.

I was thinking along similar lines and had this lined up, but I did spoil a way to break 59k, so I'll hold off.

For a while now, I've been considering, and since we're not really getting much in the way of map requests, I suppose we could just choose one a week and video it. That would fall pretty squarely under the heading of tactics sharing, since I doubt we do any map quite the same, and anybody else who felt so inclined could jump right in with us.

(No, I'm not dead to DG, but Steam's new sales and all... oh, my wallet! heheh)

Sounds like a plan, I have a week off from uni now though, so I will probably make 2-3 vids if I get more bored than I am now. Feel free to share whatever video you want, I never really watched other people's videos in the past, but it could be fun to play the boards in different ways.

Sounds good to me. Since you're the one with excess time on his hands, go ahead and pick the maps.

I'm still half-tempted to provide "Tankspot-style" voice-over for these, to make sense of some of the tower choice for folks using the videos as self-help guides. I'm just not sure how much work that will entail going in, so I may not do it at all. heheh

my strat there is bad, I never really play the resource challenges so I had something like rank ~2200 which after playing just now is 69 but the strat is still bad and requires using the laser twice.
