I’m creative and I want to stay out of that freezing cold water So I know for sure I’m gonna win this challenge Each contestant will have one hour to build their raft and then will enter the pool with one we will sink click away oh, uh and one last thing. I forgot to mention time Starts now Im off! Okay, guys I’ve just arrived at B&Q in case you don’t know B&Q is a DIY shop And it’s filled with loads of supplies that I know will help me with today’s challenge now I’m not sure where Mum and Martin are but hopefully they won’t have came here because I don’t want them stealing my supplies Team morgz, let’s get in there and let’s start crafting our raft Okay, guys, I’m inside being to you right now. I’m just looking around trying to find some supplies for my raft Hey, excuse me lady stop right there (Gasp) Morgan?! What are you doin’ ‘ere? What am I doing here more like what are you doing here? Are you copying my items again? I am sick of it SERIOUSLY?!? Again? Hey! You! Stop right there! (Gasp) Morgan, Jill what are you doin’ ‘ere? What we doing here what are you doing here? Are you trying to copy us? Wait a sec, you’re copying me? No, Morgan You’re copying me. I think you two are copying me. I’m not copying you or Jill Morgan You’re definitely copying Martin. No Jo, I think Morgan’s copying you Martin Jill. I’m not copying either of you So does that mean that I’m copying Martin? No, Jill I think that means am copying you but does that mean that we’re both copying Morgan? .Both of you just shut up I don’t care who’s copying you I’m off to get my supplies. Yeah, Morgan me too. Martin. Stop copying me No Jill you’re copying me remember? wait, so does that mean that if Martin’s copying Morgan then does that mean that I’m copying Morgan? I CAN’T TAKE THIS ANYMORE! Okay, guys, I’ve been thinking for a few minutes and I think I’ve come up with a plan I found a sheet of wood and I’m gonna craft this into a raft let me explain my sheet of wood has a big surface area so it can be hard to sink and And everyone knows boats are square However, the sheet of wood will not be no I need to get creative and think well, it’s gonna attach to this to make it even harder to sink And also I need to be quick Hi guys. I’ve been looking around this shop and I’ve just come up with that great idea I found these extra large black tools and check this out guys. I can fix inside it. This is really really comfortable So since it’s tub, it’s so big and Hollow inside. I think this is gonna stay a float However, I just use this tube as it is it will tip over and I could fall into the water So I’m gonna keep looking around and see if I can find anything else to add to this tool team bald. I’m feeling confident Okay, guys, I’m just around the entire shop and to be completely honest I haven’t got any ideas of what to build. I need something that I can sit on. There’s gonna keep me a float That’s gonna keep me comfortable and I just can’t think of anything. I literally just need something to sit on like a chair If I get chair and then find something to attach on to it to help keep it afloat Not only will I not sink, but I’ll be comfortable at the same time.Morgz, you’re a genius Now let’s go get a chair Okay, guys, I’ve been looking around and I think I found a perfect thing to add to my board. Check this out guys It’s polystyrene.Polystyrene is very light and it definitely floats So if I cover my board with polystyrene? It’s gonna take me one step closer to building the Unsinkable raft. Oh guys check this out I have just found the perfect thing to add to my top. These massive rolls are over think about it If you attach one of these to each side of the top then it’s going to stop it from tipping over and keep it a float oh ho guys I’m a genius ladies and gentlemen I have just came up with the best idea as you can see over here There’s loads of water tanks. These are used to keep water in But today I’m going to be using them to keep water out If I attach one of these to each side of the chair, then I don’t think I’ll ever sing team morgz I think this challenge is mine right guys I’ve just arrived home with all my items My watch is telling me that I only have 30 minutes left to get my wrap ready So I need to get a move on so guys step number one is attach the polystyrene to the board. I’ve got a glue.I’ve got rope And I’ve got tape.So let’s waste no time and let’s begin crafting the raft Okay, guys, I’ve just arrived with all my supplies now it’s time to get crafty as you can see I’ve got lots and lots of duct tape and I’m going to use this duct tape to attach this bubble wrap To each side of this box, but remember guys the times ticking away so it’s time to get a move on This is going to take a while Okay guys, as you can see I’m back home and I’ve got all of my supplies at the ready Now I only just arrived by and I think I can hear Martin and Mom So that means I need to get a move on. I only have 25 more minutes to build my device So there’s no time to waste. So guys the step number one. We need to add extra Protection to the water tanks as you see this right here is just a lid So I’m gonna add loads of duct tape to make sure it stays sealed Guys my safety raft is complete, but I’ve just got another great idea I’m gonna coat the raft in duct tape to make you that extra bit strong Let’s do this ladies and gentlemen Step one completed as you can see, my floats are now complete. All afternoon now is attach the, To my tub and then I’ll have the ultimate raft However, I’m gonna need some more duct tape. I’ve already used a row Okay, guys the tanks are successfully sealed with duct tape, but now it’s time for the hard part I need to find a way to attach both of these tanks onto each side of the chair and I think There’s only one way to do. It duct tape duct tape an even more duct tape So what are we waiting for guys? Let’s get started Ladies and gentlemen, the raft is Complete and the heart of the raft We have a solid piece of oak wood and therefore the middle layer. We have some extra fleuti Polystyrene and to top it off and to hold it all together. We have extra strong duct tape And looking at my watch, I have 10 minuets to spare, so I’m gonna have some fun and play on my Peppa Pig Space Hopper Wait a minute guys, that gives me an idea These peppa pig space hoppers are really floating and i’ve got battle three of these So why don’t I attach these onto my raft to make it even more flimsy but before we do that one last thing we Right guys with five minutes to spare I’m happy to say that I have completed my wrap and I think there’s only one thing left to do roll the cinematics Guys as you can see My rap is complete. It feels solid Sturdy and I’m confident it will not sink and if you don’t believe me just sit back and watch ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, I am happy to say that my build is officially complete And now I think you guys all know was coming roll the cinematics Guys with one minute to spare. I’m proud to say that my rap is ready And I think that means there’s only one thing left to do roll the cinematic Okay, guys The one-hour preparation time is over and all three of us are here in our completed rats We’ve got Jill in her Whatever you call this thing Morgan it’s called the Peppa Pig Mobile! Of course we’ve got me in my floatie Chair Mobile and then we’ve got Martin in his box It’s not just a box. It’s a floating box. And of course as well as the rafts, we have the pool now before we all enter the pool and see who can survive the longest I Say we go in one by one and see if our devices actually float Morgan. Sounds good to me. Yeah, Morgan I’m so confident. I haven’t even got my bikini. Yeah. Sure. That’s the reason you didn’t wear your bikini. Ah What you mean? Okay guys mom’s device is in the pool and it’s floating But will it be floating once mom gets onto it free? to Go oh My gosh, there’s also put it on suet. Oh my god. Oh my god. Oh my gosh Oh Martin what do you think does this count? I mean technically she’s staying afloat. She isn’t sinking her head is still out of the water you know what Morgan I ellefuc:!?8/( eoncepjxoajxapxj mum suckszxxxxxx Think it counts. However, I don’t think she’d be able to stop him there too long. My legs are getting really really cold You’re right (?) Its freezing! Okay guys it is time for Martin to enter the pool his device is floating, but will it keep floating once he gets in it? Let’s find out. Oh my gosh, where we goes? Goes, oh my gosh. This is it Wait, wait, wait a sec. Oh My gosh Martin you go get inside a little bit It’s working. However, I’ve got to hope that no water gets inside the box. I also I’m going down like the Titanic Well looks like Martin has Officially passed and now I guess that only leaves one more person Morgz it’s your turn. Okay guys as you can tell the device is Floating but now it’s time for the big moment. Will it still be floating when my 200-pound body is sitting on that chair. Let’s find out haaawa hawwa hawwwaaaaaa wawwa hawwwa hawwwaa It’s a little bit slow people, I think it’s like check it out guys. It actually feels pretty solid guys I got a little bit nervous when the last water times started to crack, but I guess it’s holding up pretty well Yeah, Morgan, I guess it;s a pass Don’t think the left water tanks gonna last for much longer So I think Morgan’s gonna be going out first But now everybody is in the pool and it’s time to begin though asked to sing a challenge Guys, I’m not sure how long this is gonna last but hopefully not too long because my feet are already so sexy So he’s my boom Okay, guys we’ve been in the pool now for about an hour and so far my raft is holding up pretty good so far Absolutely, no water’s got inside the tube and I’m staying afloat. Just fine. Honestly, I’m having fun I think I could do this for hours as for Morgan and Joan. Let’s see how they are guys Guys, I am bloomin’ freezining! I can’t feel my legs any more. And as for my bum! I don’t even know if I’ve got ’em anymore! And these stupid Peppa Pig balls have nothing for me I’m staying afloat pretty well, but I don’t how much longer I can last in this freezing cold water guys Mum’s right about the water it is Absolutely freezing Jill said she can’t feel a bum well I can’t feel my feet. Just like mom I’m staying afloat pretty well, but I don’t know how much longer I can last in this freezing cold water Guys it’s been about one and a half hours since we entered the pool and as well has been really really cold I’m starting to get hungry. I just don’t know why I always forget to bring food with me to these challenges I could really use some sweets right now or a chocolate bar chocolate bar Chocolate bar did someone say chocolate bar Morgan?

Morgan I thought we were friends but not anymore THIS IS WAR okay now that the scene is over Okay, guys I’ve lost track of how long we’ve been in the pool, I’m just so cold I can’t feel any of my bottom half I feel like I’m floating torso So I don’t think my legs are gonna work again after this video they’re frozen the guys I have come up with an idea to warm me up. I don’t think Morgan and Martin are gonna like it. Oh, no guys What the hell is he talking about guys? This does not sound good guys. I need to do something to warm me Oh, I don’t think I’ve got any other choice. If I do nothing. I’m gonna have to forfeit. This is my only hope Im gonna have to wee in the pool!

    iBobber Sonar Fish Finder Tutorial – How to use video

    August 29, 2019

    Now, being able to read the water is a huge advantage as a fishermen. On the surface and lakes and rivers they all look pretty much the same. But its subsurface where it all happens. There’s banks of weed, troughs, gullies, these are all brilliant fish holding spots. And it’s particularly important in summer but imagine what it’s like in winter when the fish really shoaled up. If you could understand what was under the the water you could try and those shoals of fish straight away. Now thanks to some new technology the ibobber, we can now see under water you can find the features and you can find the fish. Let me explain how it works. So what exactly is an iBobber? Well it’s a castable sonar device. So what’s sonar all about? Well it’s the sort of stuff the trawler men used two use years ago and still use it now to check the seabed to find out where the shoals of fish are so they can scoop them up and you can have cod and chips down the chippy. All that technology has now been refined into a tiny little device here is, you can cast it out, you can read the lake bed, you can find where the fish are. It’s amazing technology. Let me show you how you make it work on the bank The first step to start seeing under water and finding your fish is to get the thing powered up. Now it comes with a USB lead you plug it in, there’s a normal plug or into your laptop or computer. Now this Bobber goes into the port, attach it so like that and it does start to glow blue you’ll see it easier obviously if it was a darker room. And you just let it charge, and that charge will stay in the iBobber for up to a month. So its pretty long lasting. Now step 2 of this simple procedure of setting up is to download the app. It’s a free app, and again it’s simple to do from the App Store. You can use it on your mobile phone or indeed a tablet. Now it uses latest technology. It uses Bluetooth 4. Now that means there’s less of a drain than previous models and also it’s less intermittent so you get a more powerful connection. Once the iBobber is charged you need to
    sync the two together. So you take it off charge so you just knock it off like that. And then from the app you start to fill in your details. So you’ll put your email address in, your own tagline, mine’s Esox1969 after pike and the year my birth becuase I’m a pike fanatic, and then you’ll be able to start to build your details on your phone and personalise the connection between the two. Now step four, well that’s about getting down the lake or river and giving it a go. What you gotta do is attach this to your rod and reel. You need a fairly strong rod, I use carp rod with a shock leader on it. but you could just use any many powerful-ish rod. It weighs about 2 ounces so it doesn’t want to be something that’s going to break. You cast it out and you start to get the information on your phone or on your tablet. Now the first thing I’m going to show you is mapping the water. Now this is really important like I said before it’s the underwater world, the contours, the gullies, the weed beds, this is where the fish sit, and its a trick I’ve used many times with the iBobber to catch me some big carp, as well as pike and tench. Now all you’ve got to do, this thing switches on when it hits the water. Lay it down, and I’m going to go into the app, into the section marked mapping water. It’s at the top of your screen. You’ll see a little arrow pointing to an underwater map. Click it on, and it tells you to cast out. So let’s flick it out. Now this will map to a hundred feet out, and over hundred feet of water, a hundred and thirty-foot I think as much as. So you cast it out, and you refer to your app and it tells you to start mapping. Press OK. And then start to reel in slowly. Now don’t
    do it too fast and nice and steady and slow two feet per second is the default setting but you can change it to suit yourself. Wind in slowly and all the time it’s emitting sonar beams down to the bottom and back again and gathering all that information up. When you’ve got to the edge, go back to your app, and counts down the three seconds and it delivers the map of the lake bed or the riverbed wherever you fishing and
    you can start to understand the contours and then where the fish might be living. Now another crucial part of the iBobber is the finding the fish feature. Now this lets you identify where shoals of fish or individual fish are. It will tell you what depth they are lying at so you can choose the kind of rig you need, so if you were carp fishing you could use a ‘zig rig’ up in the water or a bottom bait. Or if you were lure lure fishing you might use crankbait lower down the water or maybe even a surface popper if they were high. So you can understand where they’re sitting in the water column. Also, it will tell you the size of fish. So there’s an orange tag on the fish that says they’re sort of
    smaller maybe under 15 inches and a green coloured one that says they’re
    bigger. It’s a good indicator to give you sort of a pointer to what you’re after. Another great advantage with iBobber is it can be used at night when the fish are often the most active. By using the status bar you can put the light on inside. So cast it out and you’ll be able to see it. Also on the device in the status bar you’ve got a fish alarm, and that can activate when it goes over a fish. OK so we’ve seen how it works. The best thing now is to stay active I mean the fish aren’t always going to come to you you need to go to them sometimes. So I’m going to wander around find some spots either some spots fish on the water or some nice contours
    where I think will be perfect set a trap and put a bait. And I’m gonna sit back and see if it pays off. Well I’ve had a good look around. I’m going to make a few more casts. This looks a nice spot to push your way through here to the
    reeds and there’s a bit the tree there. If this had a nice shelf, I could find the drop off and then put a bait there. So I quite fancy this if it looks right underwater. So lets cast out. And of course with these things are hardly makes any splash. So you’re not going to scary anything that’s there there either. Lets have a look. OK, we’ve crept into position. We’ve got a lot of cover here so when I cast out, flick it out. Now, it’s activated because the iBobber is in water. Lets go to the app. Now we’re going to go on underwater mapping and it’s telling me to, 3-2-1 yep. So now I can start retrieving. So I’m going to do two feet per second, something like that. Steady anyway, don’t have to be too precise. Now there’s been no disturbance so whatever is down there isn’t going to be scared off. But you might do if you were using a mark float. That’s it. We’re in. So press it again, and then I’ve got it. An underwater map of the contour here. It’s about two feet and then it drops off down a slope and then steadies away. So it’s the bottom of that slope I want to be because that’s where the fish are going to be patrolling along that so it’s a nice drop off let’s put a trip down there and leave it and see how we go. Lets keep quiet. So there you have it. iBobber really works I’ve used it to catch carp on lakes by positioning bottom baits near shelvs. I’ve used it to catch really big pike in Ireland I’ve just dangled all this thing off the edge of a boat and been able spot the underwater features, and shoals of silverfish. It’s a really great tool and that uses the latest technology so it doesn’t drain
    your battery. But the best thing about it is the price. It’s under a hundred pounds. You can’t go wrong.

    Spyglass – how to measure the size of objects and the distance to them (iPhone, iPad, iOS)

    August 24, 2019

    Knowing the distance to an object, you can easily measure its size. We will use this half-ruined building as an example and will measure its height. Mark the bottom point of the building with the Wing and tap the Sextant button to set the initial bearing A. You can also use Zoom for higher precision. Then mark the top point of the building and tap the Sextant button again to set the ending bearing B. Tap the Calculator button, choose the elevation angle, enter the distance, which is approximately 65 m in our case, and see the size appear in the corresponding field. If you don’t know the distance to your target, you can use maps to find it out. The “You”-pin shows your current location. Pan the map and center the cross on your target. You can see the distance at the top left part of the screen. And if you tap Done, the distance will automatically appear in the field. Just as well, if you mark the leftmost and rightmost points of the building and calculate with the azimuth angle, you will find out the width of an object. Or vice versa: if you know the height or width of an object, you can calculate the distance to it.

    Spyglass – GPS outdoor navigation toolkit for wildlife tracking & survival (iPhone, iPad, iOS)

    August 22, 2019

    Spyglass is an all-in-one navigation toolkit for those who trek around wilderness and need a powerful and reliable backup. Spyglass uses every sensor available on your device and provides you with a detailed heads-up-display over anything you’re seeing. The app shows your current location in geographic and military grid coordinates, current height above sea level, the direction you are looking in (i.e. the azimuth) in degrees and military units, and the accuracy of magnetic compass and GPS. The amount of data you see on the screen is not constant. Depending on your actions, the data may appear on and disappear from the screen. E.g. when your device is in a relatively static position, the bottom space of the screen is almost empty. But when you start moving the information about your movement speed, the distance to your primary target, and the estimated time of arrival appears. That is, Spyglass in some way adapts to the surroundings and provides you with the information that you might need at this particular moment. But of course you can always set up the app manually via Info – Settings. Here you can choose units, geographic and military grid coordinates, limit the tracking range for your destinations, limit the amount of data shown on the screen, and set up many other options. A double tap on the main screen opens the Quick Switching menu, which lets you switch among different modes. If you turn the camera off and position your device parallel to the ground, it will turn into a standard 2D compass, which might be very useful when you are in the wilds and need to save the battery power. With simple swiping gestures you can change the background color and the color of the HUD elements to your needs and liking. If you turn the maps on, the information will be overlaid over the map type, which you chose via Settings. At the moment we are using Open Cycle Map in its Night Mode. With swiping gestures you can also change the background color and the color of the HUD elements. If you turn the camera on again, the maps will only appear when your device is parallel to the ground. And when your device is in its portrait orientation, it is used as a 3D compass. And here you can also change the background color and the color of the HUD elements.

    Spyglass – how to use the rangefinder to measure distance (iPhone, iPad, iOS)

    August 22, 2019

    Just like a reticle in a sniper rifle, the Rangefinder in Spyglass is based on the height of an average human, which is 1.7 m or 5.6 ft, and is used to visually measure the distance to your target. E.g. a person, a deer, some other creature or object of a similar height. So let’s see how it works. The scale shows the distance from 100 to 500 m with a 50-meter step. And we will use a person as an example. Zoom for higher precision. And if the person fits between the rightmost upper and lower marks, the distance to them is 100 m. If they fit between the leftmost upper and lower marks, the distance to them would be 500 m. And everything in between could be easily measured in your mind with the help of 50-meter steps.

    Boom Beach Dev Update: Heroes Walkthrough

    August 20, 2019

    – Hey, guys! I’m Ryan.
    – And I’m Eino. We’re members of
    the Boom Beach’s development team, and we’re coming to you
    from Helsinki, Finland. We received an incredible response
    about the last video, and we’ve come back for more. This time, it’s going to be
    all about Heroes. Today, we’re going to talk about
    why we’re bringing Heroes to Boom Beach, who they are, and what they’re doing
    in the Archipelago, and, finally, what their abilities are,
    and how they can be unlocked. Most importantly, we’re going to tell you
    when the update is coming. So, let’s dive in. So, Heroes… How many are there? We’ll launch with two Heroes, but the feature was built in a way
    that it’s easy for us to add new ones… Not easy, strictly speaking, but… We don’t have to build
    the whole framework again. So we’re releasing new Heroes
    as we go along. Right now, we have a few Heroes
    in different stages of development. Some of them are more fleshed out. – Some are post-it notes on the wall.
    – Exactly. But we have a lot of ideas. If you guys have ideas,
    please send them in. When we started working on Heroes,
    we had a ton of post-it notes, so it was cool to see them boil down
    until the two very best ones. And I also think that part of what took
    this update longer than usual is that building that framework
    was a really key-aspect to make sure that the Heroes
    could live for a long time, and we can have new updates
    with them down the road. Because they give us a useful tool
    for introducing new gameplay more regularly than
    we’ve been able to do before. – Definitely.
    – Because new troops… like we discussed, it’s a lot of overhead,
    there’s a lot of balancing considerations, and it only provides value
    for a fraction of the players. With Heroes, we can do the same thing, but actually cater for
    a wider range of HQ levels. And they’re easier to balance,
    as you can only take one Hero… – With one ability.
    – With one ability. Yeah, exactly. Definitely.
    So we can do cooler stuff. – Absolutely.
    – And wilder stuff. And more of it! Each Hero…
    Basically, the core kind of… framework is that each Hero
    has a unique Hero Perk, which is sort of a passive ability.
    Something that the Hero just does when he or she is deployed
    on the battlefield. In addition, each Hero has three
    active abilities you can choose from. You can only have
    one with you in each battle, – but you have three to choose from.
    – So you can customize it. Exactly. The idea was that
    you can fit and tailor your ability to the army that you’re running. So if you’re running Zookas and Heavies,
    you might want a different Hero ability compared to when you’re running
    Tanks and Medics. Right. So, we’ve said ‘she’ a few times. Should we talk about who these girls are? Sure. Let’s do that. So, we’re launching now
    with two Heroes. The first Hero that you’ll encounter
    is called Sgt. Brick. – She’s my favourite.
    – Yes. Sgt. Brick has been stranded
    on the island that you’re on. She’s been keeping a close eye
    on your development. Once you reach a certain HQ level,
    she feels that you’re a good guy, – and she can safely reach out.
    – She trusts you now. Yeah, she trusts you now.
    She’s been keeping an eye on you. And she’ll come forward,
    and ask if she can join your forces. I think Sgt. Brick is a team player.
    She’s the drill sergeant… She’s there to encourage your troops,
    and keep their pep up… She’s a unit, a Hero,
    that works together with your army. She doesn’t go out on her lonesome.
    She’s at her best with all of these… your army grouped around her.
    And you’ll see that in her abilities, too. She has three abilities.
    Like I said earlier, they start off usable,
    but they scale towards the endgame. The first ability you have
    is Cluster Grenade. Basically, it’s a carpet-bomb. When you activate it, she throws a grenade
    that clusters on contact. It targets a defensive building,
    and then it goes off from there. And it carpets the area behind
    the target with shrapnel… – Yeah.
    – And that also explodes. So, lots of explosions. It’s great. And this is one of the three
    that you can pick from, right? Yeah. Another one
    that you can pick from boosts the troops around you.
    Did we name that one yet? Yeah. It’s called ‘Battle Orders’. ‘Battle Orders’? Yeah.
    It boosts all the troops around you, – making them stronger, shoot faster…
    – Move faster… And move faster. If you remember
    the Speed Serum from the Mega Crabs, similar to that. This is the one
    that works well with your army, and sends them into
    crazy jitter mode, ‘go go go’. And the last one is actually… kind of a similar ability to that one. But it actually protects
    your troops from damage. – That’s called ‘Iron Will’.
    – ‘Iron Will’! That’s the shield. – Yeah.
    – Yeah. Every troop around the Hero
    gets a 50% reduction – to the damage that they take.
    – Yeah. All these abilities, you can tell,
    except for the Cluster Bomb… – Yeah.
    – I like that one, too! Except for that one, they all work well
    with the troops around you. You want her in the middle of the army,
    for her aura to reach everything. The Cluster Bomb… We also wanted to put it in for the players
    who want direct damage. – You need to ‘pew, pew, pew’.
    – Yeah. You always need some ‘pew, pew, pew’. It actually nicely complements
    the other Gunboat abilities you have: Artillery is direct pin-point damage, Barrage is damage to a wider area, and the Cluster Bomb
    will be a little bit less damage, like between individual buildings, but it spreads that damage
    to a larger area. So, it will be more like the Barrage? Yeah. But an even larger area… – Awesome!
    – Even more explosions! All right! That’s Sgt Brick.
    Let’s talk about Hero number two. Hero number two is called Cpt. Everspark. And she… She’s a bit of a challenge to actually unlock. Not a terrible challenge… but you have to explore
    the Archipelago a bit more. She’s hiding from the bad guys
    that she’s also been trying… to sabotage. You can find her
    in one of the boss bases. – So, Sgt. Brick is in your base?
    – Yeah. But Cpt. Everspark is not. Cpt. Everspark is out there
    in the Archipelago. There’s going to be a distress signal
    appearing in the location she’s at. In that location will be a boss base. Once you beat that boss base,
    you’ll be able to free her. – And then she joins your team.
    – Yeah. She joins your team. I’m really excited about her.
    She has some amazing abilities, and she’s a lot more of
    an individualistic Hero. Not so much about the team,
    but more, she has her own powers, too. Yeah, you could say that… With her, we wanted to make her a bit… Not trickier, but more playful
    in her abilities. She has more tricks up her sleeve
    compared to Sgt. Brick. Definitely. The first ability that she has
    is rather straightforward. She releases a swarm of Critters.
    She is kind of a Critter wizard. Yes! Our working name was ‘Mechromancer’. I was going to say.
    Our favourite name: the Mechromancer. – Yeah. Mech-romancer.
    – Mech-romancer, yes. Her passive ability happens,
    you don’t have to customize it. And it will always be going on
    every five seconds? It goes on as you level up the Hero,
    but they are like… Every few seconds, she is going to spawn
    some Critters onto the battlefield. And they will go out
    and attack for you. – Yes.
    – I love it. So, the first active skill is that, but you actually release
    a large Critter Swarm. – It releases a swarm of Critters.
    – More Critters. Gameplay-wise it is interesting
    because they provide a lot of cover. The fact that she passively
    also releases Critters every few seconds, gives her cover, like slow-firing buildings,
    Cannons and Boom Cannons, will target them rather than her. And she buys time for the army that way
    by providing plentiful decoys. We wanted to also give her
    some direct damage potential. So, the second skill
    that she has is Demolition Charge. She plants demolition charges
    to defensive buildings. She doesn’t actually plant them.
    She goes like… She tosses some grenades.
    She learnt from the Grenadier. Better aim though. We had it so she walked to the building
    and attached the thing to the side, but she always got killed.
    So we had to make it arrange to build it. – So she had a toss.
    – Yeah, she tosses them, and after a while they blow up,
    dealing pretty significant damage. – It’s quite a bit.
    – Yes. I think the most interesting ability
    is the last one. Yeah, so the last ability
    is called Universal Remote. And, as everyone knows, with a universal remote
    you control everything. And in this case, she takes control
    of enemy defensive buildings. And they turn to your side
    and fight for you for a certain time. So you can go into battle,
    take over your enemy’s building, and it shoots at the other defenses. – Yes.
    – Amazing. And the other defenses
    start shooting at it. – So it distracts too?
    – Yeah, there’s also that. There’s nothing better
    than taking control of a Boom Cannon. It feels really satisfying. All right. So, those are our Heroes
    and their abilities. So, are the Heroes going to defend
    your base like they do in Clash of Clans? At this point, no. The Hero is in her Hero boat, and will be unable to participate
    in the defense. She really wants to do it, but she can’t. – She wants to help.
    – She is confined to the boat. How will it affect balancing? Because it sounds like
    we are putting really strong troops into the offense,
    but not anything at the defense. Yes. That’s a super valid point. We didn’t want to make the Hero
    defend, because it’s… it’s logic that we don’t have. So, it would be a lot of feature work on top of a lot of feature work
    that we have been doing. As an initial countermove for that,
    we’ve done two things: one is that we have rebalanced
    the Machine Gun by making the spread a bit tighter,
    so that there’s less volatility. Before, it didn’t consistently kill
    a squad of Riflemen on equal levels. So, now we’ve made it
    so that it hits more consistently. The mechanics are exactly the same,
    but it delivers damage more consistently. And, it should now become
    like it has a distinct role and become a valuable part
    in your defensive layout. For me before,
    when designing my base, I didn’t think too much
    about where to place Machine Guns, because they weren’t very strong.
    I focused on the other defenses. But I’m going to have to redo my base
    and think about where to put those. So, the second thing was that we added another
    Prototype Weapon slot to the Weapon Lab. So, starting from Weapon Lab level 3, you’d have two Prototype Weapons, and, on level 5,
    three Prototype Weapons. – That’s a big change.
    – Yeah. So, Prototype Weapons
    are super strong defenses. And, of course, we’ll keep
    a close eye on the balancing. Be ready to react if it’s needed. But these were the initial
    counterbalancing moves that we did. We know that this is
    a big change to the balance, and we will be watching to see if things needs to be altered, and we are ready to make those changes. Now, let’s talk about the Trader. This is something
    we have not mentioned before… at all. There have been no sneak peeks
    about the Trader. What does the Trader do? The Trader is another new character
    that will be added. And she is someone who has heard of the Resistance
    against that Blackguard and has smelled that there might be
    lucrative business for her. She wasn’t impressed
    by the Resistance. No, she is like, I guess, she gives off an air that she is used
    to something better. But she doesn’t care too much. She is there for the money. For her it doesn’t matter
    where the money comes from. All money is green. She comes to trade
    to your base every weekend. On Friday night, she will arrive,
    and she will leave on Sunday night. Every time she comes around
    in her big submarine, she will be bringing you
    new trading offers. So, she does resource exchange. Okay, this is something
    the players have been asking for a lot. There will be resources
    in the Trader boat. So, these deals too will rotate
    every week and change. Every time she actually leaves
    and comes back, she will have new offers. Let’s talk a little bit about
    how the Trader relates to the Heroes. Sure. The Trader is the primary source
    for upgrading Heroes’ skills. You can upgrade the Heroes with gold. You can level up their health, damage,
    their Hero Perk by spending gold. Like you upgrade everything else. So, the basic stats
    you’ll upgrade with gold. – Yeah, and the Hero Perk.
    – And the Hero Perk. You level up the Hero through gold, but for the Hero skills, we’ve added
    a new currency called ‘Hero Tokens’. And, right now, you can get
    Hero Tokens exclusively from the Trader. I see. And the Trader… In addition to these trading offers
    that she has, she’ll also be carrying crates
    that contain Hero Tokens, and maybe some loot as well,
    like extra resources. She’ll be giving one for free
    every time she shows up, and you can buy more by collecting tickets
    from Supply Chests and Daily Rewards. So, the more you play, the more chests you will get
    from her every weekend. Simply put:
    if you’re playing and attacking, you can get more tickets,
    you can get more crates, – you can upgrade your Heroes.
    – Yeah, and do it faster as well. And faster…
    But if you’re not super-active, and you don’t fill that Supply Chest
    every single day, you’re still going to get some
    in the Daily Rewards too. Even if you don’t feel like doing
    your Supply Chest, you can still collect a ticket
    every day from Daily Rewards. This Trader is going to have
    a lot going on with it. – Yeah.
    – It’s going to come on weekends, – on Fridays, and then leave.
    – Yeah. Friday night, six o’clock, local time, and leaves on Sunday night, ten o’clock. – That’s really great.
    – Yeah. Is there anything else
    we need to know about the Trader, or should we tell them… the most important news
    they’re waiting for? I think we’re ready to move on
    to the real news. I think the question
    that everybody is asking is… ‘When is the update coming?’ We’re ready to tell you now
    that the update is coming next week. Stay tuned! We’ll be there soon.
