Youtubers/streamers to learn from

These days, everybody just seems to be posting short clips of them doing well. Which doesn't really me learn positioning or movement. Suggestions?

Levelcap usually has a decent tactical guide out shortly after the release of a BF game. He covers things like minimap, spotting, movement, general tactics, even some "exploits". He also tries to teach things like anticipation and general thinking. I am pretty sure he will release one if he has not already.

For me this is pretty basic stuff, but good to watch usually and even experienced players might learn something from a new game.

Listening to level cap does more harm then good he is the worst BF youtuber and spreads misinformation.

His tactics are for noobs he actually tells people to slowly peek and crouch walk.

He actualloy said guns under 900 RPM are not worth using and get this people listen to him.

He wants to remove vehicles from BF and destroy custom servers he is seriously dangerous.

=
OP watch Marble duck for real info and theres a few others but they are all pretty much light weight entertainment Duck gives you the good stuff he is based and isnt afraid to tell you how your favorite youtuber is an idiot.

I believe Marble never accused anyone of being an idiot. :D

It is true that many youtubers do not put much emphasis on explaining the complex weapon mechanics, but Levelcap references symthic and tells you how guns are supposed to be used. More importantly he covers gadgets as well. Why I do not agree with many things he advocates, like the removal or nerf of indirect fire gadgets like the mortar or XM25, he does a decent job explaining stuff to people in a easy way. Still personal preference, though.

Marble is great when you want in-depth analysis of stats, this is very true!

Still noone is not biased a way. ;)

LevelCap is kinda like the auto 8 .25 extended version of Marble Duck, more videos but each video is a lot weaker then Duck's.

Do any comparative players stream?

someone more middle-of-the-road is darthveda, he's not very technical, but he can really explain complex concepts and share opinions and thougts that improve your gameplay and that of everyone else fairly well, in fact, usually when someone has an opinion i'm terribly contrary to, i get quite... altered, not angry but still, i just don't accept it, with him i feel much more at ease and even after all this time playing games i do learn new stuff from him and marble, so take a look at them two.

he is a light weight pure entertainment and never seemed to be worth watching for any other reason, i enjoy his videos but they are more entertainment then actual info.

(1) Yeah LC reads symthic stats then tells people not to use any gun lower then 900 rpm or not to use any attachments on guns, he is a fool he uses the symthic stats and still gets stuff wrong.

I agree with him about airburst and other BS.

(2) Level cap is paid by EA and got caught out for not disclosing paid promotions and even if he wasnt sponsored by EA he is a youtuber thats big and he wouldnt want to tread on EA because they may not give him early access or other things that help make him create content and compete with youtubers.

This is how it works on youtube, LC is a paid shill.

Have you seen LC play he actually walks around its hard to watch how he is such a noob he gives no tips whatsoever that are good and are not common sense.

Marble is all you need because he is based and fact based.

JackFrags have a lot of videos with really useful tips and tricks.
TheRussianBadger have some useful stuff, but most of his content is fun-focused.
Matimio is pretty average in terms of content, something useful ocationnaly happens.

Levelcap, well... the only reason why I watch him - he plays with EVERY weapon in game, no matter how bad it is and plays with user-requested crazy setups.
Sorry for my bad english - it's not my native language and I have difficulties with acquiring speaking/writing practice in my country. If I accidently insult you or say something wrong - I'm sorry, you can feel free to correct me.

because some people aren't as perceptive(e.g. me) and need people to actuallly tell them what's happening to learn something new.
