    I added this to the video section, but it might be helpful here too. :D

    I recently beat the game via each path and created a strategy guide video that goes over what you'll need to win.

    Let me know what you think or if this was helpful at all.


    Link to video.

    It's a nice overview of the different victory conditions, but it isn't helpful enough in reaching those victory conditions to call it a strategy guide.

    Thanks!

    Ah, sorry. It was hard to get all that information in the video whilst still keeping it short. What kind of video would have preferred to see or what would you like added to make it more useful?

    Appreciate your effort here. Not really very many good strategy guides yet.

    Here are the things I hope to see in a strategy guide for each path:
    1. Preferred starting conditions, faction, payload planet etc
    2. Key victory conditions with intermediate milestones
    3. Early build order, maybe 1st 5 builds
    4. Early proposed tech sequence, maybe 1st 5 techs
    5. A discussion of general mid game objectives
    6. A discussion of the late game and finish

    A good outline for presenting your strategies is 'The Promised Land: 7 City Purity Guide'. As you might have deduced, I would rather see something like a 2 page write up than a video. Guides for harmony and supremacy are in short supply. I think the time needed to do this in a a video or game play format would be really time consuming. A 40 minute video can usually be summarized in two or three paragraphs.

    You are still missed within the Planetside 2 community Luperza!

    Anyway, nice, well made video. Would love to see a more indepth guide per victory condition at some point, but I can imagine Curse not being the most suitable channel for that.

    Very well made vid, but no strategy that I can see, more a piece of marketing.
