KovaaK, one of the legends of qw in the 2000's (retired in 2008), decided to put together a series of videos explaining qw basics and mechanics, duel strategy for the tb5 maps, and commentary on his grand finals duel match vs def (another legend).

The list of videos is here (Episode 1 is probably too basic for most people on this forum, so that link starts with Episode 2: Aerowalk basics followed by the duel on aero.

There is some good info that most players will find useful. At this time, Episode 3 (dm6) is the latest vid, and it includes some cool tips on how to use sounds (or hide sounds) to your advantage.

It would be interesting to hear thoughts and comments from today's high-level players. There may be differences in styles/philosophies since 2008, and also perhaps differences due to NA vs EU scenes.

[19:20:43] <[DP]BLooD_DoG> i sent the link to locust and embah
[20:17:58] <@KovaaK> let me know if they have any comments
[20:18:05] <@KovaaK> i mean, i definitely glossed over a lot of stuff
[20:18:19] <@KovaaK> but the intent of it is so that people who are totally new to the game can watch and get a decent idea of what is going on

First 3 minutes of Episode 1 explain who KovaaK is, and 15:23 until the end explain his intent in the upcoming videos and which tournament he'll be commentating (it's from 2006).
