    Someone drops a model, 3 drinks.
    Bostria says: "Hokay, really", 1 drink.

    I think that's the one that would turn this game killer.

    Bah wish they would just do all the videos in house.

    Lately they have been top notch and I wouldn't have to endure the beasts of war guys pretending to know stuff.

    Yeah, but BoW have a bigger audience. 77k subs on YouTube compared to CBs 9k, plus a large active website, while CB is only known to Infinity players on the whole, so less likely to attract new players. So given the people starter sets are aimed at are new players, it does make more business sense to go for the bigger audience.

    The BoW guys are basically a stand-in for non-infinity players, the questions they ask and things they say might seem daft to us but they're a proxy for the general wargaming public, not just existing fans.

    Seminars and videos with just Bostria are great for existing fans but the BoW stuff has a more general purpose.

    I'd much prefer if they could grab Ash (Guerilla Miniwargaming) and Owen (Gaming with the Cooler) and do it with those two. :)

    I find BoW guys a bit too fawning and too obviously faking their hype. I would never ever show someone a BoW video as a way to get them into the game.

    Not to mention when they pretend to know some Infinity lore detail but miss by a mile in an obviously un-Infinity way. Ash and Owen miss stuff all the time, but at least you can tell they know stuff about Infinity.

    Yeah, Ash and Owen are great, but are also significantly further away geographically.

    Edit: Caps for emphasis, not emotion, im calm
    How many years have they don this with BOW? Is it really asking so much that after all these years BOW has a SINGLE PERSON LEARN INFINITY! Seriously, lets assume CB pays for the product placement, why wouldn't BOW bother to learn the game of a paying customer? Appearing before a bigger audience doesn't mean as much as people think it does.

    Yea, I want to see Owens enthusiasm! (they would either drug him traditionally, or more legally drug him with money).
