Another evnet full of content? I’ve been busy for a few weekends now and don’t have a full weekend free until the bank holiday. Normally I’d say you don’t make enough content but I’ve many hours of backlog and now this? I’m looking forward to it but I suspect I’m going to need the 4 day weekend to finally catch up on everything.

I’d love to hear some from TTCombat, I know they announced Battle Earth for dropfleet commander, but I’d like to hear more what they are doing with Dropzone Commander.

Just an idea not sure anyone will see this, but for events like this could all the video content be put into a playlist or something either here or youtube? often I play the videos whilst doing something else so it is nice to just have them all play one after the other rather than having to keep change blog post. Just an idea.
