Who are we?
Binkov's Battlegrounds is run by three guys. We like military history. We like military technology. We read about and we talk about tactics, strategy and new developments around the world. Is a new war breaking out? Is there are new weapon system being brought online? Is there news of force reduction in a certain country? We're all over that, we love to know new stuff. Between us, we have experience in video editing, military service, statistics and analytics.

Why do we make videos?
We cringe when reading about military technology in mainstream media. Or military analysis. Most of the time it's just plain wrong, using out of date data; or it is biased; take your pick.

That's why we decided to make fun (for the people who are into that sort of thing in the first place) videos that show current force levels of various countries, videos that show how geography matters in a war, what is important in what kind of a conflict, etc. Our videos may not have realistic premise all the time, but core mechanics of simulated battles are very much realistic and founded on actual, up to date data.

Then there are also the simpler, informative videos, just showing of a certain weapon system or even just explaining the usage of those weapon systems or concepts.

Why Patreon? What do we spend the money on?
Patreon helps us make it all happen. A dollar here or there may seem like it isn't much, but it adds up. At first it was a hobby. One video every 5 weeks. Then the money coming in enabled one of us to quit his job. We published new videos more frequently. Our videos got longer and more detailed. We redesigned and bought new graphics for the videos. We bought music tracks and audio recording equipment. We bought hardware and software. Finally, with all the monetary support, another member of the team was able to make the switch and work for Binkov as a full time job.

We are currently transitioning from 2 videos per month to 3 videos per month. Being a Patron drives us to go make more videos, since we know there are other people passionate about these kind of things. And we thank you for that. :)
Tiers
Banner of the People
$2 or more per month

You get access to the newsletter (monthly, unless unforeseen events arise) where we tell you our upcoming schedule, plans for our channel and possible issues we might have. Newsletter is distributed as a Patreon post, visible only to your tier and higher tiers.

Patriotic Order of Labour
$5 or more per month

You get to participate in a special Patreon-only monthly poll. We will offer a few choices (usually based on community input) and you will cast your votes and help pick the winner. The winning video should get published within 30-60 days from the end of the poll. You also get the reward of the previous tier.

Merit for the Motherland
$12 or more per month

You get early access to our upcoming videos. We usually finish making videos 1-2 days before they go line on YouTube. We will distribute video links as part of Patreon posts visible only to your tier and higher tiers.

Also, your Patreon name (as long as it's not something offensive/contraversial) will get credited at the end of our videos
published on YouTube during the current month.


You also get the rewards of previous tiers.

Hero of Überslavia
$80 or more per month only 1 left

Your Patreon name, or your own name, if you communicate it to us through Patreon messages, will get a shoutout by Binkov's narrator in the videos published on YouTube during the current month. Yeah, this one is really for the biggest fans with extra money to waste around. The rule of non-offensive and non-contraversial names still applies.


You also get the rewards of previous tiers.

Beloved Leader of the People
$750 or more per month only 1 left

You will get to pick one topic that we will then make into a video. Some limitations may apply (Jokes, derogatory videos, etc ) which is why we ask you to first contact us via Patreon message system and check if your idea is eligible (it probably will be, don't worry) before making any sort of payment.

After Patreon has processed your payment, please remember to
lower/remove your reward tier, unless you plan to be a patron of
another video, once the next month's billing cycle comes. And please be patient with us; we usually need 1-2 months to produce a video. The detailed content of each video is within our control and we decide the verdict.

You also get the rewards of the previous tiers.

Goals
$334 of $1,500 per month
We will hire additional help so we can make more videos per month. We will publish a video every week. (If we remain in good health :D)
