Dear Commanders,
On this sad day,(for school kids) we release the second Issue of the, I think highly awaited Magazine. I want to thank all of you, who wrote emails/feedbacks on our email.( houseofilosz@gmail.com ) It seems like we aren't doing it for nothing. Now i want to thank my Contributors:
LordOfHara: Assistant, Friend, amazing Writer, he continued with a very high quality article called "Massacre of Merelbeke".
Piritkenyer: I loved his article, he had some problems after all with the time frame, but he made a great debut
Lbano: This time, I also had another Hungarian guy.(besides myself) Nice read!
Ding760: Your almost philosophical article, was a very enjoyable one!
Also I want to thank:
mr3awsome
Woras
and the ones who contributed in the off-topic section.

Gave it a quick look (will read it later at home), one thing I have to say is that the layout has been massively improved. Now it looks a lot more like a "real" magazine.
Some things here and there could be improved a bit, but you can PM me if you want this kind of feedback.
Great job, getting better and better!

The articles and the interviews are very interesting, comics are hillarious and I dont mind the offtopic in the end.

Gonna take it to work tomorrow for a longer "pretend to work while do your own stuff" session.

Much much much better now.

Found a little mistake in the page 26-27. On the top "Everything You should know ABOUT..." The (BO) letters in the about word are transparent. I guess that wasnt intended.

The layout is MUCH more eye apealing. Still tho I stand to my point that the last pages are to much OT.

Also my offer still stands about the Model building part. I think it should apear in a magazine about tanks. :)

Just curious ilosz, is there much cost involved in producing this magazine? Can you recoup any costs if so? Advertising?

As House Of Ilosz is still very in the beginning, we are not able to make high moves, so we can't afford anything what would give us bigger benefits. Now i mean various programs, for example InDesign, Photshop, things that would improve the quality, just a bit. Also advertisement costs lot money, if you want to bring it to a wider audience. I hope this will change in time, but cant say anything. We involve TIME and our fanatsim/love in it, trying to do our best. We are happy, if many people watches it and brings good and constructive feedback.

BTW don't get me wrong, but if somebody would like donate, he can do it with sending in-game gold, because then we could get to various tank faster and write nice articles about them!:)

I cant comment on the content as I havent read it, but from a design point of view it needs work. It is slightly better than issue 1, but you use of columns, ability to flow text around stuff rather than over it and general white space isnt good. Some of it I found very hard to read, and most of the time if you havea text box inside lets say a black rectangle the text go's almost all the way to the edge which looks bad, ideally you want the text justified and falling short of the edge by a good 4mm otherwise it looks cramped.
