The Youtube channel Question Thread with: anEnglishman

Thought this was a good idea, since my channel is picking up steam (720+ subcribers) and it could be helpful for budding youtubers and people who like to watch vids.

Questions can be anything from:'What do you use to record your videos?', Do you even HAVE a life? or more specific questions like What's next on the Nuke series? and What's the best way to learn to Snipe?

I figure it could work out that everyone could end up helping everyone. =)

To start here's an answer to a few typical questions and one that was specific to me from another thread.

Q:What do you use to record with?
A:I use a Hauppage HD PVR and I link it between my Xbox, TV and PC.
To Store all the footage at high quality (30 minutes = Roughly 1.5 Gigs) I also use a 1 TB External Harddrive
A program that comes with the Hauppage HD PVR is easy to use and is how you actually choose what you record.

Q:What programs do you use to edit with?
A:I use Sony Vegas Pro 9 and its relatively easy to get hold of. I also play around with other software like 3DS Max and you don't need to use a program so complex to make a good video.

Specific Question:

English, I'm curious to know your opinion on how much enemy skill level and connection quality effect the likelihood of getting a nuke on any given map.

In many nuke videos (your latest one on Karachi included) it seems that no-one even attempts to shoot down your killstreaks and no-one swaps to a Cold Blooded class to avoid them. Also, seems like every time I'm on a decent streak I will get lag killed or have someone I've just killed spawn directly behind me. Genuinely feels like I'm playing a different game to you lads.

Finally, can you let us know what your success ratio is when getting a nuke? That is, how many games do you NEARLY get a nuke but fail in order to get one game where you DO get the nuke?



Answer:
@Djimm. First things first, you need to either player in a random lobby with fairly low cohesion from the other team( lack of team work = longer air support), or you need to go in to a lobby with friends at your side, at which point airsupport can be overwhelming.

Examples for both those points: 1. The Terminal Video - <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.youtube.com/user/itsnolimitsgaming#p/c/92F7315E6B630D0A/9/rRqz fEXREeY">http://www.youtube.com/user/itsnolimits ... RqzfEXREeY</a><!-- m -->

2. The Estate Video -

My success is above 50% but I will be honest I don't regularly play with nuke on and I'm quite an aggressive player and that sometimes is my downfall. This causes me to lose a 20 or so streak where staying in more secure (read more campy/furtherback) spot would solve the problem. However, when it works its really satisfying which is why my Bailout Nuke is one of my favourites.

Recently I've been playing with the 0-0-25 killstreak setup and had about 3 successes in about 3 hours. However, I would strongly advise you don't do that! I could do FFA nukes as I feel they're fairly easy to achieve but FFA is so unpredictable that its hard to a reliable guide about it.

Hope that addresses your questions =)

Hope that makes a decent start and I'll post on the first few replies so that I can maybe compile a list at a later date.

Let me know what you think, an Englishman.
