Happy to see you 🙂 – 19th of March: A little disarray. I’ll make the schedule work again at that priority 1. Stellaris, 2. EU4, 3. Torment (as I get access to the save files again), 4. Kingdom Come Deliverance, 4. Guides (are a priority, but I need to get some hours in for reliable guides), 5. News (will probably go to every two weeks with lots of business & kids atm as publishing inside a time frame of 1-2 days from official news is only randomly possible.)
The AI Tournament is still finding the best possible way to go forward, we’re in the 3000s now for the first group so I WILL have to change something. That beast is running for like 13 hours right now? Crazy. The grand final will be a timelapse, but the ones before might just be a shortly commented screenshot series with all the points. Point system is there and gives both over-time and winning points. So will make that so otherwise we’re not going to see an end, like, ever 😀 and we want that cool final and the winners’ timelapse, right? 🙂
Hoping for my reliable stacks to come back in a few weeks, or a month, and then back to running like a well oiled machine. More focus on quality than on number of videos now though as I feel that’s what most of you want. I’ll only publish if I’m quite happy with my commentary, so I might re-record the audio. My gameplay will still be ONE-TAKE style, I’m not gonna replay if I manage to record it at all 🙂
This is the planned schedule, we’ll be back in that soon, then I can add in Kingdom Come Deliverance and Pillars of Eternity 2 LP which will start close to release (end of March).
EU4 and Torment will also have breaks if I need to stay on the trip a little longer, but will be back around the 20th as well. The same thing with 10th / 20th of March is valid for the Stellaris AI tournament which will be played and released as an event of one week of YOUR EMPIRE AWESOMENESS 🙂
You see that I relaxed the schedule.. I need some wriggle room for guides, streams, creativity and new additions to the schedule (PoE2 release, Pathfinder Kingmaker start, maybe Kingdom Come Deliverance, Crusader Kings 2 (?)).
Also, I’m changing my “work / game structure” on everything to give you better LP episodes and to mix some guides in when they fit, changing the times I record and the times I make things like thumbnails. The structure for that is new, should produce the same amount of output but better quality (more immersive roleplay, higher difficulties) – but still needs to be organized as well as it used to be which only comes with time.
I’m integrating Discord as well which takes some time, thank you, Dark Savant (First Leutenant Discord and longtime Sub). Personally, I check Discord when I check comments, so usually every day or every two days.
Some people are always on, I am not a fulltime YouTuber, I have 2 hours each day usually, but not more, so basically I can decide if I chat with 3 persons or if you get 2 or 3 episodes, I hope you understand that 🙂
The next step will be to have streams, I’d love for them to be on Saturdays as most people have time then.
(Usually Saturday, when not sick or launch) Streams here https://gaming.youtube.com/c/ThoughtfulgamingFun/live
Now sometimes I try out games at
usually around 11pm GMT+1 or later (announcing via Twitter or Email) if you want to hang out a bit. Cannot predict a schedule yet though 🙂 You can write me a short email note with your interests and I’ll inform you when I’m streaming something that could interest you. I’m not Google Ads and if you write you’re interested in Stellaris I will only message you if I’m streaming Stellaris and nothing else 😀

Hi there friends and fellow thinkers!
We are five now here, so it’s a little crowded and showing. Kids are still so young they’re not in kindergarden for a while that’s why I have to help a lot while working and stuff 😀
Please continue to give me valuable hints about specials you’d like. It’s usually very good topics and if I find the time and think I can do that I’ll gladly do them!
Happy Gaming to you, Immanuel Can
