I think there is a need few videos with your style.

1st. "Building you first mech" Clantech vs. Innersphere. You got your Cadet bonus, what now? Step by step contruction for new players of an effective Shadowhawk and Stormcrow and going over the pros and cons of each tech base.

perhaps showing how a SCR-Prime can be reconfigured with D omnipods into a streak crow.
http://mwo.smurfy-ne...048be861f1ff567
Then go on to explain this would be a good entry level option for those looking to hunt squirrely lights and also double so-so as a brawler. The pros and cons of streaks.

Then perhaps covering IS with a SHD-2K 3xERLL build
http://mwo.smurfy-ne...443484937e4ecbf
Explain this is a solid Innersphere lonewolf attrition poke build to get a feel for long range combat.

2nd. I think there is a need for a new player video which covers roles on the pug queue battlefield which also ties into more builds and explanations, how to play them, and so forth.
Scout, Brawler, Direct Fire Support, Indirect Fire Support, and the subcategories if time permits.
Also covering superior trades, push vs. poke, attrition vs DPS tanking.

3rd. The big one. Community Warfare Survival Guide/Prep
all I have on it so far is this.
https://docs.google....g56a3d083f_1800

Minimally about the faction map, more about the combat portion.
Instead of something obvious like "just join a team, stupid", I think something like how to contribute better in the CW, team or no team, is the way to go. How to approach dropdeck construction. What works, what doesn't. How to handle a rush or a standoff. Scouting ahead if your mech is trashed. When to K-out. How to operate as solo player or on a 12-man.
I think a video delivery would give it better justice than what I can do.

Great ideas Kin3ticX. Right now I have critical hits next for the tutorials, then after that I could start on a battlefield role series covering your second point. I am also going to be starting a new video series very soon here that should act as a playthough of sorts. Covering starting a new account and how to grind up a competitive dropdeck for CW matches.

Added the Commnity Resources tutorial and reorganized the post into categories with spoiler tags, the list of videos was getting too long.

I know this is an older thread, but wanted to bump it back up as I found EVERYTHING super helpful thus far!

I had no Idea my preferred (thus far) play style until reading it here. I am clearly a kite/skirmisher or brawler. AWESOME THREAD!
