    Why are you posting so many videos on this site,  MMORPG should ban all this self promotion BS. 
    This is a FORUM where people WRITE their opinions.  I hope your posts get deleted.

    I don't believe that jahlon works for Intrepid.  He's probably just that excited about the game and wants to spread his excitement.

    Yeah, the short content summary is a simple thing to do, that people asked for so I'm happy enough to provide.

    Agreed.  Youtubers are cancer.  Every day more and more places on the internet feel like giant ads for self-promoted content creators.  Anywhere they can place a link to their content they will, we need an adblocker for this kind of thing.

    90% of everything that is posted here is an endless cycle of bickering or verbal masturbation and when someone puts in some actual work and effort this is the response? I am kind of disappointed tbh.

    Kyleran on yours sincerely 


    But there are many. You can play them entirely solo, and even offline. Also, you are wrong by default.

    Ikcin in response to yours sincerely debating whether or not single-player offline MMOs exist...

    I agree, but I also see both sides. Reddit has become a link aggregator to Medium and YouTube and it drives me crazy. I'd rather read articles than videos (take that as I rarely watch videos and mostly just key moments), but videos can provide a lot of info. Also, this person puts a lot of effort into it. There is a lot of different between the bombastic click-hit wankers there for the social media churn, and the informative stuff. This is the informative stuff.

    Really? I managed to completely avoid watching the video, with no ad blocker or anything.

    But I'm good like that.

    Pro-tip, for some reason people will enjoy activities you don't, buy things which seem absurd, but it's OK,  don't let it diminish your personal enjoyment in life.

    What is the problem with streamers making money?   They don't actually charge for their services (yet, the day is coming) but earn their way via donations or advertising.

    Besides, I'm not sure you are correct, gamers have been hosting web sites, creating mods and tools for free since the earliest of days, not hard to believe some would stream for free and I'm guessing some do.

    Again, streaming isn't for me, but clearly there is a strong market for their services, and it's not a big deal for me to not watch them, but let others enjoy doing so.

    Couple of points on this one

    1:  A lot of content creators do make their content out of love for what they do.  You make so little on ads its pretty amazing.  Unless you are racking in hundreds of thousands of views per video, you aren't making much.   

    2:  I give away all the money I make via Gift Cards.  I don't really want the money, so I pass it along back to my community.   



    They could totally stop monetizing YouTube videos and I'd still make them, because it gives me something to do.

    Except when it penetrates everything you do, everywhere you go online.  You literally cannot go anywhere online without someone sharing their videos.  

    As though everyone who is accessing that site somehow opted in to seeing what equates to an advertisement.

    Um... most people using youtube started using it after monetizing started, so what is your point exactly? That's like saying, "You didn't start walking until after you were born".

    Us old folks and our preference for the written word!

    Well, that... and I tend to skim posts for what's of interest instead of committing my attention to a video for 20 min :lol:

    The summaries definitely help!
    And thank you for doing these videos, @jahlon :D

    I didn't start making videos until 2016 when I moved to Revelation Online and it was a giant pain in my ass to try to explain things via written guides.

    From 2014 through 2016 all I did was written guides for games.   I was an old gamer who didn't want to make the transition to videos.

    Now ironically I find I help more people with stuff via videos.

    However, my new project is a blend of written guides and videos.  Trying to cater to both worlds.

    I think the frustration should really be about interviews and info from Devs that are ONLY available in a video form.  I hate that.  I think official communication should not require watching a 30 minute video. 

    But what Jalon is doing is fine.  He is a fan of the game not a member of the studio.  If he wants to make videos, write the info, or use morse code... that's up to whatever makes him happy.

    I've actually taken a lot of the stuff you've said to me on the forums over 2018 under advisement.

    I'm going to be changing up things a little bit as I move forward, and going to try to do some more text based stuff on top of video work.  I used to write a blog and I enjoy writing, I stopped doing it to apply my time elsewhere, but I think I may venture back to it.

    Jahlon posts informative stuff about titles folks are interested in. He actually plays, and actually keeps it fair. 

    The 4 post nimrod who responded negatively is the blemish not Jahlon. You come after THIS guy, while the Star Citizen offsite community managers literally have conversations with themselves just to bump threads? FOH.
