    You deserve them! Could I ask one thing though - what is the best starting country in your opinion?

    I'm having a hard time finding a country where I can get my head around everything!

    Oh that's a tough question...
    You know.. some people suggest the USA because you can't really lose and can go at your own pace, others suggest germany because you have your whole country in 1 spot with no colonies or islands or whatever.
    If you ask me there is no best starting choice for everyone. It's best to start with a country you want to try. You'll learn enough so that you can later move on to other countries and learn just things more specific to those countries as you go.
    The basics are the same for all countries anyway.

    Personally I started playing as japan which was tough, but I like japan so that's what I went with. It interested me enough to keep me invested in the game and care enough to learn how to handle it.

    If you don't really have any specific country you want to try though, I'd say germany is a good choice. It helps that you know what you're supposed to do historically. So you already have your goals set out for you and you
    just have to worry about how to do it in game, instead of having to come up with your own goals.
    You may very well lose the war but that is also part of the learning process and losing can teach you a lot about what you can do better next time.
    With the USA for example you can do whatever and be fine, which doesn't facilitate learning how to deal with challenges too well.

    In the future there will only be two workers, a human and a dog. The human's job will be feeding the dog. The dog's job will be making sure the human doesn't touch the computers.

    Thanks for that, I think I will stick with Germany as I don't like having colonies everywhere!

    On the second page already? Come on this deserves at least to be recognized + added to the tutorials sticky/stickied itself!

    Most people here don't need this any more so it's understandable I think :-)
    The main reason for this thread to exist is so that new players can find the tutorials when they come here for the first time and look for help.

    I guess... However I think most new players are put off by the difficulty and can't find good tutorials so leave, but if they saw these then they wouldn't!

    Yes I think an episode on the Navy would be great!

    Thank you Christian and weezee!

    I'd like to do a navy tutorial if I can find enough stuff to talk about.
    It's already on my imaginary to-do list actually, along with AI army control, specific country guides and brigade stats / division setups.
    No clue when it's coming though :-)

    Haha! I don't think I want people falling asleep while watching my videos. Perhaps I should randomly scream to make sure everyone stays awake and attentive :-)


    Episode 7 is now available btw. I updated the first post with the link.
