    Major props to Mariana, this was an awesome batrep. Loved the opening credits, the cinematic shot at the start, the salt cam, and of course the gameplay and commentary. I do appreciate the rundown of the lists both in the article and the video.

      Thanks, glad you liked it! She did indeed do a great job.

    Hey Reece,

    I’m still noticing that when I go to an article for the first time it is filling someone else’s info in the name and mail and I have to replace it with my own.

      Yes, I am working on finding a solution, it is very strange. Unfortunately, I was on the road all weekend becoming a godfather to my best buddy’s daughter. Well, that was awesome, but it meant I was gone all weekend and didn’t have time to look further into it.

    Best video batrep format i’ve seen yet. Fantastic job. I love the little features like the salt cam and end turn cut-scenes to show a 2nd angle. Also the bass jam starting in the 7th minute was much appreciated.

    the narration of turns outside of the game is so much better than in-game narration. never look back.

      Thank you very much, nelson! Kind words, and much appreciated. We will continue to produce them.

    Nice bat rep…So good in fact that it has inspired me to comment (first in many a year). In my opinion the extra effort that goes into it is worth it. I’ve really missed your short forms (i have no idea who has the time to watch a full bat rep… and most of the key tactical stuff is lost in the size of a full report). I think that if you want to reach more people with your video content then this is by far and away the way to do it. Great work team… more of this please 🙂

    PS: kudos for all your hard work over the years. Keep kicking ass and chewing gum.

    Nice battle report, short and neat. The 2.5 hour ones is also nice, but it is time-consuming..

    Thanks for the hard work guys.

    Great short-form bat-rep, but please don’t tell me this marks the end of the long-form bat-reps on Twitch? The pacing of full, higher level players, playing in real-time has absolutely been part of what elevated me to a more competitive player.

      Yeah, unfortunately due to staffing changes we have to cut back on the live games. We don’t have the manpower for it at present. Well, in this case, woman power!

    Should have put a tear on the poor little Gork’s eye when the sad music played 😛
    Salt cam was EPIC haha

    Love the short form bat reps. Perfect for watching on my smart TV while drinking some coffee. Hope these keep coming despite the changes in personnel and such

    One suggestion. You need a sound effect of a bus wooshing in and picking up people to throw in from time to time to get us that old school Martinez feel.

      lololol, that would be comedy gold!

    Salt Cam is legit……great Rep. Enjoyed the strategy explained in the game. Also like Frankie’s offer to join the greater good which we know no “Propa” Ork would ever join. keep up the good work.

    That is some high quality batrep. Nicely done. Like the strategy bit as well as the layer work on the battle field.
    Although I really enjoy the long Battle Reports more. It gives me a chance to listen to people playing while actually doing some hobbying. This is great for some mobile 40k action during lunchbreak though 🙂

    this is the first bat-rep that I’ve had time to watch in eons, and I wanted to say that I really enjoyed the aesthetics and the format, including the “salt cam” hehe. Reecius; are there any changes that you could make to your list to make it more competitive, like maybe finding points for Grots to hold your back-line better??
