Some more updates! First, here is the other channel I was planning to launch, Accursed Farms Junk:

 

 

 

It's pretty much what it sounds like. This is the extra content I have lying around that I feel isn't substantial enough for the main channel, but some people might still be interested in it. Besides the intro, I've uploaded some older videos I had lying around where I did some stuff with Tom White from the Youtube channel Weird Videogames. Additionally, the first playsession with fans for Planetside 2 is now up here:

 

 

 

The quality came out a bit low due to issues with OBS again. The sound comes out of sync towards the end also due to OBS also. I didn't feel like editing and repairing it the way I do with the videochats. Welcome to Accursed Farms Junk. I have an idea for possibly increasing the quality on future recordings, but it will take some experimenting. None of the sound to the game is included (just me talking), but I may be able to add that in the future also.

 

The session went better than I expected, although I'm still trying to determine the full story of how it played out. Many people were unable to join me on the continent I was on most of the time, though that was to be expected. I hope those who weren't able to join me were able to still play the game on another continent however. If not, let me know how bad the wait time was. I did end up stopping the game sooner than I planned since we had multiple server crashes, though I was feeling a little worn down from it after about 2 hours, mostly because I'm not used to talking continuously while playing a game. I might be able to build up my stamina in the future however. Anyway, assuming nothing went seriously wrong, we'll have another session sometime next month, I'm still figuring out the date. I think things will flow a little better next time. I initially set a delay on the twitch stream since I was anticipating the stream being used against me, but it ended up not being too much of an issue and I think it probably hurt things more than it helped. I've also been talking with the outfit that helped us (VCO) and have come up with some ideas to make the gameplay more interesting if the normal plan gets a little stale.

 

In the meantime, I should have another small video introducing the new channels on Youtube soon, otherwise, it's back to work on getting future videos out, the movie, another Ross Rants and more Game Dungeon.

Even when the game told me wait time was going to be over 40 minutes, I was on the continent in under 5min.

I'm not sure how that happened but I'm not complaining.

Playing in a VCO platoon was great fun. That huge wave of people overflowing the base is what you would expect from a meetup. My fps was tanking like crazy with that many players though.

I was kinda hoping to join but the whole Queue thing put me off, I might try joining the next time if Ross wants to host another event. I wanted to help Ross with the mobile spawn points and against any tanks or whatever so I'll probably try to do that if I get to join a match.

From what i heard in game chat, an entire group of people signed off together to let Ross's warriors in. Crazy awesome people.

Hey Ross, you might want to list your new channels in the Accursed Farms channel as well. It will make it easier for people to find them.

That was definitely a fun playthrough... I got off just about 5 minutes before Emerald crashed. (can't be late to my own 5-day late birthday party!)

 

I remember hearing the VCO guy on Amerish shouting over Squad chat that Ross was switching to our continent... I don't think anyone left the Platoon to go be with Ross though. (we were all on a different section of the map fighting like crazy)
