Very useful for new players not knowing the mechanics.

Thanks for your videos. Good work.

I've carried a lot of pianos, but didn't pay the $10. Sometimes it's okay if abundant reclaim near or stored up. (my opinion).

Overall I agree with the video...

Gruffman wrote:Hope that makes sense. It's like an engineer drains -5 mass doing one task and then when assigned to a different task it drains -20 mass

it depends on both total cost of the building/upgaide/unit/missile and build time
Engyneed has 5 build power, that means if i try to make a factory (mass: 240, energy: 2100, build time: 300)
you need to divide build time: 300 by build power (build rate) of engineer 5, 300/5 = 60 seconds
240/60 = 4 mass per second drain
2100/60 = 35 power per second drain

ACU with 10 build power will build factory twice faster consuming twice as much resources every second

so lets see another example: ASF mass: 350, energy: 40000, build time: 3000
for engy:
3000/5 = 600 seconds
350/600= 0.58(3) mass per sec
40000/600 = 66.(6) power per sec (hmm i thought value was different but even if i made a mistake it is just an example on how you can calculate those values)
units with higher build power will just build faster and drain more resources
t3 air fac has build power of 120 (that is like 24 engeis) and it will build 24 times faster and drainf 24 times more resources

In game you can see how much unit drains when building other units (don't need to start building you can just select and hover over building or a unit and it will show you total cost, drain per sec and time that it takes to build a thing)
and using that you can intuitevly know if something can be built slowly, draining very little resources or quickly draining alot of resources. ACU upgraides are generaly cost low build time, and drain alot of resources (except maybe t3 tech suite)
big example of opposite are missiles in nukes and especially antinukes, antinuke silo has 1080 build power and only drains 15 mass, that means you need 216 t1 engineers to double production speed and those 216 engies alltogether will only drain another 15 mass.

These videos were helpful. I liked the build order series the best. The POV one's of Heaven playing were also interesting.

I don´t watch them, because I already have one channel that does that... So I don´t have that problem ;)

But I would like to add something:

There is still something missing in the tutorial section. Navy!
Me and a couple other guys asked for a while for a comparision chart and a Unit composition.

But as I said back then, take your time making it. I don´t care if you do it tomorrow or in one year. All I have to know is... SoonTM
Quality is improtant

Thanks for all the great vids you already did!

I like how he gives us his thought process as he's playing in real time and also it's interesting to see where he spends his time/focus/APM (which is actually the third resource in some ways).
