Love your stuff max but it does get a little bland when you just described what was happening so I think this is a good change for you and maybe if you have time you could do a sort of god mode video on Friday where on Monday you pick any tank for subs to play and you pick the best video that compliments the tank
That’s a great idea for Max to pick a tank that we can play
+kolbypage16 I like that idea, thanks.
Dude. Love your vids. Do not. Change team. Bud, you’re one of my top 3 WoT channels. Keep it. Kudos.
Hey Maxwell, love the vids, i was fine with the commentary style you provided, but if you feel a change is needed then by all means, go for it, but just remember, you can’t please all of the people all of the time. I loved the knights of Pen & Paper set you did, great talkthrough on that. Keep up the good work Jake.
+Jake Colt Wow, Knights of Pen and paper, that was pretty much 2 years ago I played that. Wouldn’t mind revisiting that at some point. You’ve been here a while, thanks.
Perhaps you can do some tanks review vids? I’d watch that for sure.
When you do/did the youtube dream team there were only a few things that i watched it for. First it was Circon and Foch being Circon and Foch in their unicum ways of letting everyone die and then they kill everything. Second is watching everyone blaming Billy for everything that goes wrong and third was you Maxwell. You are the best when it comes to live commentaries because it isn’t telling everyone what you are doing all the time… it is you having a good time and being funny and i agree with the part about people liking the live commentaries better because they are better than the subscriber replays. There is still a place for the subscriber replays because they are great just to see someone do well in a random battle with a random team but your live commentaries are just so much better compared to them. If you were to do more live game play with or without platoon mates i feel it would be a welcome change to the channel 🙂 Keep up the GREAT work :P
As far as multiplayer things, I really loved your minecraft series you did on your old channel so perhaps you could do something like that…best of luck!
+Justin Lang Plans are in motion…
Lol the only way your vids will get anymore exciting is if you have a personality transplant!! Only kidding keep up good work :D
Yes! I think its a great idea to change the commentary a bit. I really enjoyed watching the livestream replays because you are really funny, and i feel you dont show enough of yourself if you just describe what is happening on the screen! :), i think you just have to add some more personality to the videos. Hope you can do something with this feedback. :D
+jesse van vliet Agreed.
Sounds good. Might have to tune in more.
It really sounds like people were complaining that you’re not funny. Well maybe that’s not who you are when your doing youtubes. Don’t just try to amp up the funny for a bunch of people if that’s not who you are. Just be yourself and that will bring people in on its own. I guess I can agree that sometimes these have a little bit of a formula but I also don’t go looking for world of tanks content to make me laugh unless it’s you heff to be mad. Just be yourself man.
+Sir Denzington That’s the thing though, being funny and talking crap is exactly who I am, the sub replays are about as far from who I am normally as you can get, that’s why I’m taking on board the feedback to change things up a bit.
If you want to see what I mean watch any of these https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLyR9wzzJHOMTYA6BqwpkSqiwGPO2bgPhu

I prefer the old style better.
I watch replays to learn from better players. I’m not sure entertaining chat will help or distract me. Thanks for listening.
Hey Maxwell, I always liked watching your videos, especially when you were playing online with PHJ and Snooze and the others! You were much more relaxed and yolo and you loved laughing and having fun. I think this is what made you so fun to watch, the funniness and the personality (and the banter, if you know what I mean) soooooo why not go back to stuff like that! I hope you still love playing with Circon and the gang, and it would be really cool to see you doing that again 😀 however! Don’t do it and stuff like that in front of your job. Your job is the most important. Obviously. But yeah, I had the 3 best WoT channels before – Jingles personality, QB learning to be better, and You! For the funniness, energy and banter and laughs with the team battles you used to do with Circon etc. 😀 I’ve been sad to see your YT channel change and while I appreciate the way you do sub replays now, I also want to see the old stuff back! So since you asked I thought I’d vent all this steam 😀 sorry for the wall of text!
Personally I enjoy your commentary as it is, If you want to change some things up, do some video editing on some great or funny situations and add music to them like once a week. To work on being “funny” really won’t make things better, just makes you do more scripted stuff, wich might or might not work out well.
As far as I’m concerned, there are no changes needed. Great artists became great by doing their own stuff and not listening to other people. We are looking at your vids for 3 years now, Maxwell, and we keep looking at them because we like them just the way they are. Either way, I’ll allways stay a subscriber ;-)
Love your live stuff so would like to see a bit more of your geordie personality shine through. Look forward to hearing your stories – perhaps a ‘tales from my bar’ episode?
I think the nature of the game helps your wit as well, GTA for example is much easier to make jokes from, which you do very well, and the type of game WoT is it’s difficult to joke about. It’s also not just jokes that make for an entertaining video, anecdotes of any kind go down well in my book. Keep it up Max, still one of my favourite YouTubers and you kept me sane through my last year of A Levels
Hi Maxwell, I always liked your “English Football Commentary” style. For me your WoT videos are as entertaining as QB and Jingles’s.
What your videos lack compared to theirs is they let their personality drive what they do. Your vid’s are a series of competent and entertaining stand alone replays, theirs are (a little bit) more of a series of snapshots of their gaming life.
You don’t have force yourself to be funny, you’re interesting enough. You own bars. A gaming bar! Think about what it would take to get Jingles to shut up if he had a gaming bar. YouTube would run out of storage space before he’d be finished.
Anyway, thanks for all the entertainment and I wish you succes.
personally didn’t like the replay itself, when he shot the first time he could of fiinished off the tank he was shooting at and then back away in the time he took to do a 180 and get away. Then theres the fact that the object did everything wrong. He could of easily taken out the 13 90 but he didn’t know what to do, he practically had a lucky game.
out of all the recent posts ive seen on this specific channel, this guy didn’t do much right other than sit behind the enemy and sit in a bush, which was his enemies entire mistake and not his own good plays.
This is not a comment hoping for replies, guess I’m just annoyed that I wasted 9 minutes and 10 seconds staring at the screen when i could of just listened to it while doing something else. My own stupidity and the lack of ability to judge things.
The positive comment is I do like the idea of spicing up your replay commentaries however, definitely keep giving it your all.
The non stop play by play commentary style works well for me. It points out aspects of game play that I would not have picked up on and I learn a lot from it. Too much funny business might override the tactical aspects. From my point of view, no changes needed. Cheers.
I like the idea of making the replay commentary more lively and funny.
Pick some random replays and you get the impression that all of those videos are interchangeable. No variation in narrating style, always the same intro and outro and so on. Don’t get me wrong: I like your content, but that’s one thing I had in mind..
Love the videos you’ve put up, and I personally like the E-Sports style commentary you’ve done in these replays. Maybe incorporate a little strategy/tactic breakdown, but the commentary is good in my book.
BIG Shout out – I will stick with you and always recommend you no matter your style of commentary –
II DO want to say though – people who have paid ANY attention to your channel at all know the reasons why you can’t live commentary – and have probably always watched your subscriber replays as well – for those who haven’t – perhaps the “lack of humorous comments” is too straight-forward for them. But you have had this method of doing things for a long time – and the people who HAVE been with you from early on, and who followed you over after the other channel was ripped to shreds knows the replay commentary style and enjoyed it. The flashing up of the medals once achieved in game was always a nice touch, btw.
I agree with Jake Colt and some others – do what you feel is right, but don’t expect to please everyone. Lots of “teachers/aka – viewers” who know NOTHING about maintaining a YouTube channel who troll around criticizing others for their style, but few who could do it as well as you, IMHO.
Not funny? I haven’t laughed at your videos since The WoT YouTube Dreamteam, but I have been enjoying your videos. How you did in this video is great, just laugh at the replay and I’ll laugh as well. Also more replays by yourself or live streaming with others would be very interesting as well
Max commentators who read what is on the screen drive me nuts, you know the type, the ones that read an election result that we all can see DUH. When we are watching your video we can see exactly what you see!! What we are all looking for is what you see that we don’t have the experience or skill to see!, How far up that road should we go until we grab a bush and let the binocs kick in? Is the guy we spot to close to the edge of the map to flank? Where are the danger points that you cannot retreat from without getting your ass blown up? Does the guy your fighting have really good SA and how do you know? It is also OK to pause a replay to make a point or prediction.For fun try something like Dezgames does ” Quickies of the week” they are really funny. In any case I will stay with your channel cause you do good stuff, don’t worry change is a good think and we all learn from it.
I think it’s a great idea to change I will keep support u anyway :)
Max I,m happy with they way you have been doing things so far but trying something new can’t hurt and if it doesn’t work out you can just go back to the way it was before. Either way I will still be watching your vids.
666 at 6:66 :O
love the videos. I liked this one cause it showed both commentary and talking more freestyle can work together. no matter what, I hope you have as much fun making videos as I do watching
Hey Max love that your trying to mix things up with the vids, you said you need to have someone to bounce idea’s off to get that comedy value, how about once a week if possible pick a replay and do a dual commentary with someone you know whoever is up for it, probably wouldnt even need to be anyone who knows about tanks because you already do, just an idea and might not work but its different and unique to tanks as far as im aware :)
I’ve always enjoyed your videos, whether they are subscriber or streaming based. More tactics discussion would be nice but not necessary. I think the real difference is the amount of Rum you have had …
hey maxwell i just subscribed to you a month or so ago and have bean in joying the style that you do your replays. its a good change from watching foch, QB, and jingles
