The Odd & Wonderful Old World Online Weekly (OW OW OW) Hello, I'm a huge fan of this game and have accumulated a respectable amount of experience in it. Well OK, a completely unreasonably excessive amount of hours. With release, a lot of people are now discovering this game, been coming back to it, or wonder what it's all about. The game is very rich, similar enough to other 4X games to make people think they know how to play it, and different enough that it usually ends up in disaster. The game has been built by a small team, and has changed very quickly during the entire year of early access, so there are not yet great guides out there to help you out (and some existing guides/walk-through/VODs might be a bit misguided sometimes). So, as it takes an inordinate amount of time to write or make guides, I propose to organize interactive Q&A/tutorials/learn the game sessions. The format would be as followed : Session streamed on twicth, every Saturday from 8PM CET (2PM EST) at https://www.twitch.tv/nolegskitten, with a focus on a theme/area of the game. Of course, I will be happy to answer any questions you might have about the game, so long as I have the answer . The game(s) streamed would be used to illustrate the points we're talking about, and I'd be happy to restart or switch to new games or load saves if it serves the discussion. If you want to make it more fluid/interactive, I will also hang out on the official Old World discord in a voice channel (not fully decided on which one but probably "The Oracle"), so feel free to join and we can voice chat, ask questions directly, etc. For the first session, I think a focus on game setup (difficulty levels, maps, options), interface & the early game would be in order, but that will include some discussions of most game mechanics as well. That's it, not need to subscribe to anything (well a twitch or Discord account would help if you want to chat ), of course if we end up with a million people there might be a need to have a kind of filter, but we're not there yet ;-). Here are a handful of subjects we could have a focus on, in no particular order. Feel free to chose or suggest yours as well ! - Economy (getting, spending, selling, buying resources, improving your production) - Urban planing - differences from Civ 6 (or other games, but Civ is probably the other 4X I have solid knowledge about) - Tech/Research - Specialists - Relationships, characters and diplomacy - Strategy and war (when are you ready for war ? or for defence ? when to declare ? who to attack ?) - Combat and tactics (of course. Including promotions, terrain effects, naval combat, logistics) - Wining the game (Victory types, Culture, Ambitions) - Silly challenges (One city challenge, playing at "The Great", handling "The barbarian hordes") - Advanced level combat (combat puzzles, fighting seemingly superior forces, etc) - review/commentary of a game (not sure how to set that up, but if you want to suggest your video we could do that) - etc. Finally, I'm not a pro streamer: just a huge fan of this game, so I will ask you not to expect a pro-level microphone, a face cam, or super high quality bitrate. But I am knowledgeable about the game, enthusiastic about explaining it to anyone and I speak a close approximation of English that usually proves to be good enough. I also love you already. The Old World discord community is also awesome, with many friendly and experienced player. We also enjoy easy interactions with the dev team. Don't hesitate to join with your questions, suggestions, bug reports or just to lurk around ;-). This also imply that we might have other experienced players (or devs ? who knows) who might join during these sessions. I'll also try to see if I can make written guides, but that might take some time and streaming is pretty easy to setup (and more interactive). That's it folks, see you Saturday July 10th (8PM CET/ 2PM EST) if you're interested !
