Now, for those of you who are looking at getting into TE multiplayer, I am willing to set up a time and date where I hope to improve everyone's skills. There is a place for everyone, from the new, to the pro, as there is always something you can learn.
What this would consist of would be in game training, from just learning general strategies for specific factions, strategy in general, and all around tips, to things like what certain hot keys do, how you can maximize your early game efficiency, and how to take complete control of a map with little to no (lots of) effort.
Understandably, some players are much more casual and won't necessarily want to learn specific things, like how to truly master micromanagement, but since the lessons will be open to everyone, I will be going over everything. But it's always good to have more knowledge in case you ever need to use it, right?

Before I put any really serious thought into this, I want to know if anyone would actually be interested. I might also add some text tips here eventually.

"You must not fight too often with one enemy, or you will teach him all your art of war." Napoleon Bonaparte

So,are you truly willing to "fight with us,maybe too often, and maybe even teach us your own art of war?" Your own strategies and tips?
Do you specialize in both 1.51 B and 1.4? And of course, I am sure we all want to thank you and that we very highly appreciate your kind offer and willingness.It would be honor to call you Master(or teacher)
Now, if we/you should really delve into this in near future, and probably not just me,some other fans too,you will probably end up being as popular and busy as Carnius himself.
So I will start with little interview.Yes, you are like Hollywood star, now :D (Just take it easy, answer on that little interview of mine if you like,no pressure)
1.)What is your favorite faction?(most played with,easiest to play,most victories aquired with)
2.)What is your most favorite unit? (or unit combination,most favorite Epic unit)
3.)Which Support power is your most favorite (most used)
4.)What faction you dont like? (most defeats aquired with, the faction that "always" defeats you,the faction with "useless" units,SP's.etc.)
5.)What unit you hate most (likewise in previous question)
6.)What is your most hated Support Power (-----II------)

I think this can be enough, for now. So,I think,you can place some texts,general tips and so.And maybe some recorded matches with Smallchange.Or if you really would go all that hassle of recording entire tutorial videos and placing them on youtube,with some written commentary,for example.For example,likewise AtlasTasume did in his awesome videos,by all that work with recording all those mission videos,and putting them on youtube.
"Honey,where were you for so long?" "You know, I had a looong and important course of TE today, with Ace of TE, mr.GoldenArbiter,that is." :D

#1: My favourite faction is Nod, due to the sheer amount of versatility stealth can give you (Plus I've been a noddy since Tiberian Dawn), but the faction I get the most victories with is Scrin.
#2: I don't rightly think I can answer this question. Every unit has its place, and every unit is useful (Cept those damned useless manta...)
#3: Again, a hard one. I use all of my support powers, but depending on the situation, I may use information more than combat, or vice versa.
#4: GDI. I like them, don't get me wrong, they're cool and all, but I just can't get the hang of them. They're to slow.
#5 Manta. There are other units that can do it's job, but better. Especially since you need to upgrade them to give them the storm cloud...
#6 Information support powers... they always give me away XD. In all honesty though, I there is no useless support power. They are all contextual, however.

As for the videos, Me and smallchange may just get around to doing that.

edit: Problem with the uploading to youtube thing... 24 minutes of footage, will take 2 months to upload...

edit the second: Okay, tried it again, same thing. Anyone have any tips for making either the video smaller, or the upload faster?

1) Nod - just love their style and units

2) Cyborg Commando - he brings back awesome memories of TS & FS. Favourite model has to be the Phantom MRV Crane, it's an excellent adaptation of EA's wierd Nod Harvester model and fits this vehicle so well.

3) Hard to say as they all have their uses, as i only really play as Nod i'd probably say Espionage Network, but please dont make me choose!

4) Scrin - Always seem fragile and they have a wierd tech tree. But they do make badass UFO armada's that tend to crush me if i give them the chance.

5) Nod Saboteur - hes got cooler since he gained stealth when standing still and he's useful but his model REALLY sucks he needs a complete redesign although the claw arm is ok.

6) Scrin Wormhole = instant aliens in my base
