About a year ago, in an effort to put out more content for the Star Wars LCG game, I created a youtube channel and started putting out videos of both casual and tournament games for Star Wars LCG with commentary. After a few guest commentators, Queklaine became my regular partner for commentary.
Queklaine and I have both recently gotten into Star Wars Destiny and have decided to take a stab at putting out some videos with commentary for Destiny and contributing to the Destiny community and content.
We present our premier, pilot episode of a game played between myself and my good friend Jerry at my house pretty much right after we both got cards. Let me give a couple disclaimers at this point:
1. Be warned that our cardpool and playing experience was really limited at this point so the decks are nowhere near what appears to be top tier. Jerry and I had only played less than 10 games of Destiny when we recorded this game, so keep that in mind when watching our plays.
2. Finding a good camera position is still a work in progress. It's a bit difficult to figure out where to put the camera to try to make out the dice. It's not perfect here, but we think it's acceptable.
3. Queklaine and I found that it's a bit trickier to do commentary for Destiny than it is for the Star Wars LCG because the actions can go pretty quickly, but we felt like we established a good rhythm as the game wore on, and that should only improve over time as we do more videos.
4. Since it was our first game with commentary, Queklaine and I tried to go over rules and cards for those people who may be newer to the game than even we are. We're not Tiny Grimes, but we did want to try to educate people about the game and give insights about plays as much as we could.
5. I played a Villain team with Bala-Tik. 1 Nightsister and 2 First Order Stormtroopers. Jerry played a Hero team with Luke Skywalker and Elite Admiral Ackbar. The complete decklists appear at the end of the video.
Queklaine and I hope to do more Destiny videos for Yoda's Hut. One thing we have done regularly for the LCG is ask people to suggest decklists and then record games where we play suggested decks. We plan to do that for Destiny as well, but since neither Queklaine or I have complete sets, we may have to adjust suggested decklists if we don't own certain cards. If you have deck suggestions you'd like to see play on camera, feel free to post them in this thread for now.
Also, we plan to continue to put out videos for the Star Wars LCG game so if you play that game too or are interested, check them out on the Yoda's Hut youtube channel. https://www.youtube....4tm-rI6tKgPkLTA
We hope people enjoy this first Destiny video from Yoda's Hut. Comments and suggestions are always welcome, but please keep in mind we're doing this because we enjoy the game and are not attempting put out professional quality videos. Thanks for watching and giving us a chance.
