New Look, More to Come — StrategyBro and More!

I stream throughout the week and often times Friday/Saturday evenings, so join me for some heckling, Struggle Bus riding, and random shenanigans at Give me a follow and help me build my Empire, muahahahaha!

I’m always updating things. It’s just a habit of mine, so the latest and greatest is that I have a new logo and on top of that one of the artists that created RunningSilent’s artwork is now working on mine as well. I’m over 50 followers on Twitch, but I did some off schedule streams with lower average viewers, so I need to boost my count up a bit to get Affiliate. Mr_Ohnny and I are also working on some tips and tricks to getting to Affiliate status so you all can avoid the pitfalls that both of us experienced as our streams grow and we reach the next plateau in the livestreaming world.

That’s a slick looking logo if I’ve ever seen one.

Now that has its feet under it in terms of Livestreaming, the next effort is the building phase. We’ve figured out some of the hurdles and barriers to entry so that has enabled us to develop a game plan for the future. There are a ton of moving parts that are coming together and activity has increased over the past few weeks. The building phase will focus less on building infrastructure and more on content.

  1. Identify partners and build infrastructure
  2. Build Content
  3. ?????
  4. Profit

This one doesn’t involve underpants… or does it?

You may have also noticed that this site has come into being and that Military Gamer Network now has its own site as well. You may even be reading this article from that site because of how our content distribution works. We began with Livestreamers, but we’re moving on into overall Content Generation. MGN has a section for Livestreamer Setup and soon it will have a section for content generation to include hosting other people’s blogs, twitch profiles and other content. The idea is to take content and replicate it as many times as we can generating more exposure for MGN and all of our contributors. That leads me to my next point about how StrategyBro is going to take off.

Now that I can focus on content itself, I’ll be working on Battle Reports, Game Reviews, general philosophical debates on things that don’t matter and maybe some that do. We already do the Sunday SITREP to cover the upcoming week, but I’d also like to recap and review games we’ve been playing as a community and tackle some controversial topics. I also want to take all of that brain space that has been taken up by what I’ve learned in the military and apply it to video games. As my fellow MG members continue to make obvious to me, I’m StrategyBro, this ain’t TacticalBro, but then again, there are so few military brains out there applying some of these higher order concepts to open ended games like Life is Feudal, Squad, Planetside 2 or any of the traditionally Tactical FPS games. Most open PvP sandbox games are designed to allow for a Strategic mindset, but unless the group or community is prepared to function at that level, most decisions are still made tactically in time and space. We’re hoping to change that through the StrategyBro stream and bring some higher order discussion to the multiplayer games we play.

See, we even have an image overlay for them!

Keep your eyes open for our new contributors and the content generation we’re going to be bringing to you on a weekly schedule. As we get settled in, you’ll find plenty of opportunities to make your mark and grow your own brand within our network.

Tune in Sundays at 7PM Central on, or for the Sunday SITREP with Brando and Moxie to catch LIVE updates on your favorite community.

Life is Feudal Going Native – New NPCs?

Life is Feudal launched a teaser trailer today that alludes to the long anticipated NPC feature that is centered around natives, which were originally supposed to be found underground. From the looks of the trailer these dudes aren’t going to be hiding in your mines or tunnels exclusively.

The LiF MMO has suffered significant population drop off, but with the addition of NPCs, things may be looking up. The Developers have promised a big May update and this just might be it. The trailer says, “Coming Soon,” so that doesn’t mean much at this point, but if they follow through on the promise to pull people back in by the end of May then soon may really mean soon. Time will tell if it’s enough to bring players back to the game.

If you’re looking for a community to game with in Life is Feudal, Silver Sun Republic and still have a presence, arguably one of the more stable communities as well, so check them out. 

Head on over to for more gaming news and to check out more about our gaming communities.

20 May 2018 – SITREP – What Are We Up To?

Streaming LIVE on Sundays at 7 PM Central / 6 PM Mountain at

Tonight at 7 PM Central on, and we’ll be covering a few different topics for MGS, and Silver Sun Republic. We figured we would take you through some of our current active branches and show off what some of our members have been up to, primarily the members playing Conan Exiles and the coliseum they’ve built for some PvP ladders coming soon.

PvP in Conan Exiles

The Stygians are serious about their competitive sports.

The ladder and arena style Player vs Player combat will be starting up soon for and Silver Sun Republic on the MG Exiles server being hosted on’s dedicated server where members can request games to be installed for use by the community.

Open areas perfect for slaughtering people or a wide list of "things."

Open areas perfect for slaughtering people or a wide list of “things.”

The server has pitted SSR and MG against each other to compete for PvE progression, but now the time has come to take the gloves off and get some arena and event style PvP going to see who is the Champion in Conan Exiles.

Fight in style and enjoy some fabulous interior decorating.

The arena is functional, but it’s also a cool place to hang out thanks to CaptMoxie and BabyFaceJohn spending some time getting things arranged. Conan Exiles has access to a wide variety of fixtures and furniture to personalize your home, or your torture chamber, whichever floats your boat or pulls your trigger.

Well, when you stop sweeping the place, the dust does tend to build up.

Not only does the arena serve as a place to fight, but it can also be a nice hangout spot in between events or to bring the community together to enjoy a nice tavern ambiance. It’s up to you whether you’ll just remain a spectator or jump in and get bloodied in the area. Either way, the game offers an opportunity for the community to come together and spend some time in virtual space together.

Content Suggestions

We’re getting links to things from people from time to time and that’s awesome, it’s greatly appreciated. Feel free to send it to any one of our Social Media platforms, on Discord as a Direct Message or share it on the MG forums. We’ll take that content, talk about it and share it with the rest of the community. We’re here for you!

Get Involved

Join us on Twitch and Discord so you can be part of the show!

We’ll be chatting directly on or on any of the community Discord channels.

Conan Exiles on What Are We Playing Now?

If you haven’t had a chance to check it out during Early Access, I highly recommend Conan Exiles. The game takes the concept of Ark and smashes it into the world of Conan the Barbarian. It has it all from base building to NPC followers called Thralls that you can put in the Wheel of Pain that Conan was pushing in a circle from the movies (you have to break their will somehow!). The game also features siege mechanics, clans, quest lines, dungeons, climate effects, twitch style combat, in depth crafting and a whole lot more. Then again, you’re probably better off just watching the launch trailer below:

The Military Gamer Network is hosting a server for Conan Exiles and you can get all the details on our Discord through or Silver Sun Republic.

In order to qualify for membership you must be current or former US Military.

Starting Your Own Business – Preview for 29 April 2018 Weekly SITREP

Streaming LIVE on Sundays at 7 PM Central / 6 PM Mountain at

This week we talked about epic Veteran entitlement fails and re-enlistments gone wrong. We were also treated to updates from some of the branches and talked about what was going on at Military Gamer Supply ( in El Paso and what Silver Sun Republic was up to as a community. We got some good insight into EVE and Life is Feudal, which I still highly recommend if you’re looking for some group PvP on a grand scale. One game will give you your Sci-Fi fix and the other will scratch that Medieval hardcore combat itch.

What I’m MOST excited about and it sounds like folks are getting geared up to hear about are the plethora of resources available for Veterans looking to start their own business whether it is your hobby or a full blown retail chain. I’m going to talk about my own experiences and significant mistakes in starting Military Gamer Supply, so that you don’t have to go through them yourselves. I’ll give you a look into the world of Small Business Ownership and guide you in the right direction after I’ve stepped on just about every commercial land mine that was out there.

We’ll also hear from the branches around the community again and see if anyone got up to any good fights in EVE or Life is Feudal.

I’ll also finally be around to start doing some Saturday Night Ops soooon (about 2 weeks away!) when we get our hands around some ARMA 3 goodness.

On one last and final note, I have some keys to give away for Defiance 2050, which is a new MMO from Trion Worlds entering beta on PC, Xbox and Playstation this weekend. I’ll be giving them away on Discord, so make sure you join the Discord server via and claim yours! Limited quantities of course.
