Every Total War fan probably knows this...
"Hey Youtube what the crap is going on, it's HeirofCarthage, back with another video".

Can't stand this 5 second intro. Skip everytime.
No **** it's you. No **** it's another video. I got the notification! Beisdes, what else goes on YT? Text transcripts?

any / all engagement with videos helps. Even dislikes. Remember when LTT started saying "Like if you liked it, dislike if you disliked it and leave a comment down below" ? that's basically engagement farming.

Is all this a sly dig at TTL ?

"Hey guyyyys, Tiny Tom Logan here back with another video for you..."

I think what Tom does is fine. Its not super cringy or long like a lot of other youtubers.

I think TTL does raise his voice up a bit for that opening line

Basically someone should get a Fiverr gig up to sell youtubers unique intro lines.

It doesn't annoy me as much though, because how many kinds of greetings can there be? But of course there isn't any need to go full auction chant like many youtubers seem to love to do.

Amazed you think that, and absolutely not. Nothing at all wrong with TTLs videos from opening, delivery and closing.

These are examples of poor openings (sorry if these are members here but it is just so cringy)

I really don't see what the fuss is about. In this day and age, "whats up guys" has just become a general way to great people.

At least with the second video he has some enthusiasm in his voice as opposed to the british guy in the first one.

TTL does it, and again, you hear his voice raise, smile opens up (/cringe ) and there is excitement in the way he does it.

How do you expect people to open up in a video when they release so many?

I still remember Gaahl of Gorgoroth in a metal interview where he was asked a question and just sat there for 5mins with his glass of wine, perfectly still and silent. I suppose silence made it something you wont forget.
