Good videos for beginners...
I've been looking at a lot of videos trying to find a presenter who does a good job narrating and explaining the mechanics of the game and his decision-making as he plays.

The official forums have a good list of vids here:

But I think the guy called DochDoch does the best job of explaining stuff:

Please add links to any other videos you found particularly useful or fun!

Thanks for the shout out Cougarific! I actually have a new 4v4 uploaded and there will be another uploaded at the end of today!

To add to the discussion the two channels that I enjoy most would be:

When to unload?

I've got some infantry in carriers moving up toward a stand of trees and they come under fire - should I unload immediately to add the infantry's firepower to the attack or keep them buttoned up until they reach the trees?

Ideally you want to unload just barely in front of the tree line or inside the forest/tree line. However that is not always an option, unloading them to soon should be avoided as much as possible. I would say if you are only fighting units in the tree line and you are worried about losing your troop carriers unload once the infantry will be in range. If their are units on the flanks and you are outnumbered, then try and get as many carriers in the woods as possible, otherwise your infantry unloaded will be stunned and panic with no cover. In that situation where they are surronded/outnumbered they would not be able to add any effective contribution to begin with.

Perfect thank you - so when an infantry carrier is destroyed, the infantry inside is destroyed or survives but will be stunned?

If it survives it will be. And I was trying to point out that if you are outnumbered and being attacked from multiple directions if you unload too early they will be panicked/stunned and unable to contribute. So getting 1/4 infantry to the forest vs 4 useless infantry in a surronded field is better.

up, because Selkares' videos are really good, his tutorials are good, his commentated replays of vs battles are very immersive, i feel like i watch a real commmentated sport on tv. he really deserve more subscribers on youtube.
