The single War Robots video that had- by far- the greatest impact on me as a player was Lloyd le-Mar’s tactical thinking series with the Gareth.
I wasn’t a Gareth pilot, but that scarcely mattered. The video showed me an entire new way to think about the game, to assess the battlefield, and most of all how to better engage the enemy through tactics rather than brute force.
As a content producer, le-Mar could be frustrating. With his superb articulation and a voice that called to mind Patrick Stewart’s, his videos were of the highest quality, but like a mercurial artist he never had the pace of production you wish he had.
“I don’t see the point in covering ground someone else already covered,” he would say, not realizing that so many of us wanted to get his take, his perspectives, his insights.
By the time le-Mar appeared on the Pixonic Community Roundtable last April, there was already the sense that he had one eye on the exit. That he persisted as long as he did was a credit to him and a blessing to War Robots.
And now, perhaps inevitably…this.
Cheers, Lloyd. I look forward to seeing you on the frozen wastes of Battle of Titans, a game which seems to have a tone and pace much more in line with what you lament the departure of here.
