Sorry, MN, I was typing that before you posted you last statement. Iwon't distract from the focus any longer. 

It was fun watching you play back to back games like you did because each time you won and started a new one, it was exciting to see if you would obtain even more points to put you closer to 1000. If I can ask for a request, if you get to a new max on either Major Nelson or Derrick Rose, those are the most exciting to watch because we can root for you as though we are watching you get their for the first time.

Next time I'll be approaching 1070 I'll make sure I set the recorder on. ;)

You don't have to wait until your approaching 1070 though, any ranked match above 1000 points is exciting to watch :)

Greetings, Major Nelson. Jeannie told me you might take exception to what I have to offer as feedback for your excellent videos. Wait a moment, she's on the phone with me...she says you are more than enough of a man to handle anything coming your way...wait a sec'... she said she was joking..."Master is a most sensitive man!," she says.

 

Well, shall I offer you a comment, please? I will take the chance...wait a second, Jeannie says it's okay, so...here we go.

 

I really appreciate your first video with English language commentary–thank you! Your english is very good, and you speak well. Naturally, your game-play technique is incredible and is highly instructive to watch you deal with various problems. Your matches with Bosphorus Sultan are particularly instructional. The only thing I would ask of you to help improve the quality of your video is this:

 

1) Please explain HOW you are interpreting your opponent's moves. Ex: This piece coming down my right flank seems to be a high piece–the reason I say this is because it started here... (you made a great statement about why you did not believe his two piece Spy buff as he approached your known marshal on your left flank...more of this kind of commentary, please).

2) Please explain WHY you decide upon a particular counter move. Ex: "He has marched his marshal right into my front row and is attempting to control the board–I am going to set up a series of Spy bluffs, and at some point he will have to withdraw, or attack, and it is my goal to get him to attack the wrong piece so that my Spy will get his marshal."

3) Please explain when you know it is the necessary time to lotto–it may seem obvious to you, but not all of us will react as quickly or with the same knowledge as a player at your level.

 

The improvements will be a constant explanation of ALL movements. Take for example Napoleon 1er's videos...he often comments (in text) at just about every moment there is a developing scenario...you may feel free to do the same and it will provide a good deal of insight to your thinking and how players of your level approach this game. Fks also does this and comments when he is suspicious of a piece, or if he knows for sure in his heart that a BIG gun is about to come at him.

 

Thank you so much for making the English version available–you will reach a much bigger audience, too!  :D

Thanks for your comments, Robert, I'll try to improve my commentary as far as the points you stressed are concerned.

It is always the correct time to go RRRRAAAA, after all a little risk never hurt anyone!

Im not sure where RAAAAAA comes from for you guys but it reminded me of a local wrestler in Boston whose catchphrase is RAAAA. His videos are absolutely hilarious. Check it out if you have a few mins.

Not from my side, I'm sorry to disappoint you. :(

But one of my opponents did capture many successive pieces with his Marshal (RRRRRRAAAAAA) but in the end hit a bomb and surrendered. Check from 52:10 to 53:20.

Really? I like it. But yes, I can turn it off when making a video with commentary.

Greetings, Major Nelson! I must say that your match with Rambo237 is one of the best of the best when it comes to entertainment...when he lottoed your bomb with his marshal, I burst out laughing, but your reaction is also priceless! Wonderful.

 

I was not even going to watch the third one, but when I saw the guy's moniker, I remember having played this guy...he has no skills whatsoever, and I got the bite on him in similar fashion–general trade, my spy got his marsh, and then I got his major with a colonel, too. It was great to hear you comment, "I don't understand the point of that move..." Well, guess what? Rambo237 doesn't understand much about why he moves his pieces the way he does either.  :lol:  :lol:  :lol:

 

Thank you for the laugh...it was fun! :D

I love the sound on. It tunes your mindset and focus to Stratego state.
Keep recording and posting. I can learn a lot from it. I'm really in love with this game and recently found you can play online too :D so this and your videos are a great way to develop my play!
