Starbase Orion League Replays - Open Alpha

RE: Starbase Orion League Replays - Open Alpha
I just realized this might someday be a great tool for creating video tutorials for advanced players who have sufficent motivation to teach. He or she could record a screencapture of a game replay and then narrate his or her reasoning at critical parts of the game while fast forwarding through the boring bits.

Currently beginners must still learn by 1) reading on the forum, or 2) by experience (by playing against experts (and seeing what they do though not knowing why) or better yet by playing on a team with experts who can "mentor" and explain the cleverer strategies and tactics. There are a lot of rock-paper-scissors dynamics, bluffs and mind games that a beginner needs to learn to rise in the Orion league.

Assuming the tool is implemented in SO2, if Roc decides to add some kind of simple turn by turn commenting system it could enable fast tutorial making from people who are not savy with video editing. Excellent games with tutorials could be linked to on the forum to be recommended, (or could even form the basis of an in game walkthrough of intermediate strategies such as optimal micromanagement, or how you can often position an inferior number or quality of ships and still win some battles.) Entertaining games might even be fun to watch or comment on if the fanbase grows sufficiently large.
