Hey guys,

I am not good at this game and would like to get better. Thankfully we have youtube as a resource to learn from today that we didn't have years ago lol.

What are the best channels to learn from?

So far I have come across

Tonysskeleton
Dsector
Edd B

Any others that are good?

And also a thank you to these folks for uploading their videos, I have already learned a lot from watching these vids, and I'm sure others have as well.

Watch my live stream to see the best current players (and strategies) and hear my commentary- I often mention techniques being used by the players and why they are doing it.

I also archive all my streams at my profile page, "past broadcasts"

RumbleSom and Zigzag, a million thanks. That thread was exactly what I was looking for. And RumbleSom, explaining tactics used sounds amazing because at times even I'm lost when watching videos wondering what exactly the players are doing and why, I will check it out.

Seke thank you, I read your guide before, very very helpful. And Aresenick thanks for linking that organized play list, I knew of the other channels form the replay thread but didn't recall seeing that one.

I am very thankful that these pro players have taken so much time to upload vids of their game play vs other pros, I have learned more in a few days of watching these videos from various top players than a year of playing QM by myself. I always used to make threads about what do on certain maps and BO's, but it is so much easier just to watch and see it in action.

@A7Wins agreed on the appreciation to these players for uploading their vids. I myself have learned a lot, especially BO's, strategies, how to micro and tank control. Learning is half the battle because it's hard for me to be so quick thinking in games lol, but the youtube vids are extremely insightful and shows how a game between pros transpires. It's almost like watching a competitive sports game.

My favorite matches to watch are definitely those where the two players are almost equal, and the only thing that determines the winner and loser is who makes a mistake first.

@Seke, thanks man, gonna check out your guide and channel.

@aresenick, good link, didn't come across that one yet. I like how it's organized by map.
